Mistico wins, Guadalajara

CMLL (SUN) 02/07 Arena Coliseo [Ovaciones]
1) Cholo & Zayco b Rayo Tapatío I & Rayo Tapatío II
2) Delta, Metálico, Starman b Disturbio, Puma King, Tiger Kid
3) Ángel Azteca Jr., Fabián el Gitano, Guerrero Maya Jr. b Arkangel de la Muerte, Nitro, Skándalo
4) Rush, Stuka Jr., Valiente b Dragon Rojo Jr., Misterioso II, Shigeo Okumura
5) Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas b Hijo del Fantasma, La Sombra, Sagrado
6) Brazo de Plata, Héctor Garza, Místico b Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero

Mistico did not get along with his teammates. Hector replaced Strong Man, which surely did not help. Mistico didn’t really get along with the rudos either, fouling Atlantis for the win. Mistico seems less a rudo and more a lone wolf.

Peste Negra swept the semimain, and Negro demanded a shot at Fantasma’s middleweight title. Not sure if it’ll be this week or next.

Fourth match was said to be best match on the show.

CMLL (SUN) 02/07 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Templario b Nocturno
2) In Memoria b El Divino
3) Drago & Ebola b Magnum & Samurai
4) Gallo & Metal Blanco b Neutrón & Palacio Negro
5) Ángel de Oro & Ángel de Plata b Euforia & Pólvora
6) La Máscara, Máscara Dorada, Toscano DQ Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto

Mephisto yanked Dorada’s mask for the DQ.

Undercard was a bit changed, but made sense – the fourth match was a rematch from the previous week. Gallo & Metal Blanco had unified masks; if only there were tag team champs for them to challenge. Magnum & Samurai did not get along/lost again.

Ovaciones also had an interview with Atlantis, who said he’s not close to retiring; he’ll think about it in twenty more years.

IWRG, attendance, lineups

IWRG (THU) 02/04 Arena Naucalpan [SL #350]
1) Máscara Magnífica & Volaris b Epidemia & Flama Infernal
2) Comando Negro & Keshin Black b Brazo de Platino & Brazo Metalico
3) Dr. Cerebro, Hijo del Pantera, Trauma II b Hijo del Signo, Eros, Gringo Loco, Black Terry, Samoth, Trauma I, Dinamic Black, Maldito Jr., Imperial, Bombero Infernal, Guizmo, Avisman, Alan Extreme [Copa High Power]
4) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro b Angelico, Pantera, Solar I

You who have watched the youtube channel know these results much better than I. Reading the results, it looks like Hijo del Pantera won it for the veterans team by pinning the last rookie (Hijo del Signo.) Pantera gets credited for winning the whole thing, even though Trauma and Cerebro were also alive. Signo, Trauma, and Cerebro all stomped down Hijo del Pantera after the match. The only noted angle was Terry & Gringo not getting along on the same time, and being pinned at the same time as a result.

SuperLuchas says Friday’s Arena Mexico show drew over 10K, the biggest draw since the anniversary show. I think next week will top it.

Estrella del Ring has an interview with indy wrestler Halcon del Averno

Des De Ringside talks to Johnny Villalobos. I do not recall him being in ECW.

Milenio writes about a man who is undertaker by day, luchador by night.. No, not that one.

Cesar takes a look at this week’s lineups.

DJ Spectro looks back at Boxers vs Wrestlers and notes Rubi Gardenia was the loser in Tijuana’s cage/hair match on Friday (with Park, Mascara Sagrada, Demon and winner Starboy.)

Cronicas Y Leyendas has pieces on Blue Demon defeating Cavernario Galindo in 1954 when the wild man got himself DQed in the third fall, Dos Caras defeating Canek in 1992, and on El Solitario

SuperLuchas has #350 Mistico rudo

Box Y Lucha #2960 has Wagner wanting Mesias’ hair (which clearly isn’t going to happen, but then Wagner can say Mesias is scared.) There’s a tease of Wagner saying he’s staying at AAA, though I’m not sure I believe that more the headline (except, where else can he go at this point?)

Segunda Caida is speeding thru the 2010 IWRG: 01/10 (Cerebro/Bushi), 01/14 (Traumas vs Zatura/Suicida), and 01/21 (Angelico/Navarro).

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.


CMLL (TUE) 02/09 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Meteoro vs Relampago
2) Thunder Boy & Virgo vs Acertijo & Infierno
3) Astaroth & Gallo vs Exterminador & Malefico
4) Ángel Azteca, Ángel de Oro, Ángel de Plata vs Cancerbero, Euforia, Pólvora
5) Strong Man & Toscano vs Mr. Niebla & Rey Bucanero

Long night for Bucanero.

IWRG (THU) 02/11 Arena Naucalpan
1) Volaris vs Comando Negro
2) Brazo Metalico & Eros vs Alan Extreme & Avisman
3) Maldito Jr. & Samoth vs Trauma I & Trauma II
4) Hijo del Pantera, Pantera, Zatura vs Black Terry, Dr. Cerebro, Hijo del Signo
5) Angelico, Super Porky, Ultramán Jr. vs Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro

I guess they’re going somewhere with Angelico vs the Oficials?

IWRG (SUN) 02/14 Arena Naucalpan
1) Eros & Imperial vs Avisman & King Drako
2) Eragon, Hijo del Pantera, Pendulo vs El Hijo del Diablo, Gringo Loco, Hijo del Signo
3) Angelico, Bobby Lee Jr., Rayman vs Histeria II, Psicosis II, Veneno
4) Hijo de Pirata Morgan & Pirata Morgan vs Máscara Año 2000 & Máscara Año 2000 Jr.

At least now, the finish of the Piratas/Morgan tag team block makes some sense.

CMLL (SUN) 02/14 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Diamante & Starman vs Hooligan & Nitro
2) Eléctrico, Mascarita Dorada, Último Dragoncito vs Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito
3) La Máscara, Rouge, Valiente vs Atlantis, Shigeo Okumura, Último Guerrero
4) Brazo de Plata, La Sombra, Máximo vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Rey Bucanero
5) Místico vs Volador Jr.

Who are they running against here? This is clearly a special lineup. First appearance of Mistico as a rudo outside Arena Mexico.
