Mistico was more aggressive in this match than Sunday. Mistico jumped Volador before the match, and ripped up that mask, getting DQed in the first fall. A fan (?) threw Volador a new mask, and Mistico ripped that one up. Someone sent a third Volador masks out from the back, and Mistico tore that one up too. Mistico ended up tossing his own mask to Volador, behind the ref’s back, to draw a DQ win in the second fall, tying it up. Crowd actually seemed to get behind Mistico in the third fall; Cesar notes that there were a lot more Volador items being bought before the show, but Mistico still came off as the better luchador when it counted. Mistico tried La Mistica, Volador escaped, Volador tried La Mistica, Mistico did NOT escape. Volador beat Mistico with his own hold, and will get a title match (MEX LH) next week in a rematch. And whatever angle they might have wanted to run this week, maybe they’ll run it next week.

If you count Sunday’s finish, Mistico and Voaldor now tied 1-1.

The Guadalajara duo of Atlantis & Mascara Dorada defeated the crowd favorites from DF, Negro Casas & La Mascara. It was a technical match, to set it up the main event as a strong contrast. DF took the first, GDL took the last two (Atlantida on Negro, La Mascara counted after a Dorada dive.) The top matches were over 20 minutes long. This tournament seems to have been a pretty strong success (especially for an ultimately meaningless mid-winter tournament), and it should be back next year for DF to get their win.

Bucanero was DQed for pulling Fantasma’s mask.

Rudas won their match in straight falls.

More Santo: ESTO (where we oddly learn Pompin’s real name and luchador name), Record (where Santo teases a new movie), ESTO again (where Santo explains it’ll actually be a series of 3 films – one on El Santo, one on el Hijo del Santo, and one on his son.)

DJ Spectro has video of El Snato vs Espanto I from 1963

Hijo del Perro Aguayo says he wants to face Park, Demon and Santo in a mask match, because his hair will grow back if he loses, but masks do not. Smart man.

  1. While Im on AAA is it me or is the 187 getting a little long in the tooth. My biggest problem with wrestling in Mexico is the lack of movement in their titles. Im not asking to have them dropped every other week but give someone else a chance. CMLL has to many and AAA keeps them or forgets who has them.

    Each company should have a Heavyweight, Lightweigth, Tag, and Tercios titles. Thats 4 champions and 7 wrestlers with straps around their waist. Add the challengers and it makes 14 wrestlers in major story lines.

    Now I didnt mention the womens title since I would rebrand it as a transgender title. This would allow guys like Pimpi and Polvo to get a title but not lower its value (Mexico is very anti gay). But it would also enhance the ladies as they would to a certain extent be beating men. Add this title and its now 16 players.

    Okay enough with my thoughts, be back in a few.

  2. Having just watched the Mistico vs. Volador match again, I can’t really see where they edited out footage from their match in the 3rd fall. My guess is superluchas is counting the minutes from the very end of the 2nd fall until the end of the 3rd.

    From the time the 2nd fall ends until the girl comes with the 3rd fall “round card”, I’ll bet SL counted that time toward the 3rd fall.

    There were in the ring for about 25:00 minutes. If you look back at our chat on Friday, at 11:00 Rob(who kind of did play-by-play for us) called Mistico taking his mask off and throwing it at Volador for the DQ and by 11:11, the third fall ended with Rob calling Volador using La Mistica. There were probably a few minutes between the action.

  3. You can just go to cmll.com’s main page and watch the 4 videos they put up showing highlights. There is a ton of action we didn’t see. Video 3 in particular is 1 minute worth of highlights that never made TV.

  4. @Rob: You’re right. I see what they did in the third fall on tv. In one part you see Mistico walking around the ring taunting fans, then a crowd shot, then Mistico is suddenly back in the ring. From what CMLL.com posted, it looks like Volador went out and got him.

    We missed a Mistico 619, tope, double kick to the back, and drop kick off the top rope into the ring, Volador sweeping Mistico’s ankles to prevent him from hitting an asai, an asai by Volador, and a few other moves.

    I guess that’s why Televisa does more commentary and less play-by-play.

  5. Having seen the match… it will be interesting to see where they are going here with Mistico. Not a Rudo, Not a Technico, I’m the best – its a pretty good catchphrase and gimmick, but he worked that entire match as a rudo.
    I like what they are doing here.
