Puebla, AULL, Mistico suspension?, TNA/CMLL

CMLL (MON) 02/15 Arena Puebla [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Espiritu Maligno & Fuerza Chicana b Black Tiger & Lestat
2) Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Violencia b Bam Bam, Pequeño Olímpico, Shockercito
3) Fuego, Rush, Stuka Jr. b Cancerbero, Pólvora, Raziel
4) Blue Panther, Hijo del Fantasma, Valiente b Ephesto, Misterioso II, Vangelis
5) Atlantis, Mr. Niebla, Último Guerrero DQ Brazo de Plata, Místico, Strong Man

Mistico is saying he’s only a rudo against Volador and got along with his partners. Still, the rudo fans were rooting for Mistico to be a rudo – and the tecnico fans wanted Ultimo Guerrero to be a tecnico. I don’t know about that one. After Porky and Mistico dove, Strong Man accidentally hit the ref, and UG took off his mask and threw it to Strong Man. Referee called the DQ.

Mini Violencia got away with a foul on Bam Bam for the second match win.

AULL (SAT) 02/13 Arena Lopez Mateos [Al Filo del Ring]
3) Chucho El Roto, Iron Love, Mr. Potro b Angel o Demonio, León Rojo, Ovett
4) Brazo de Plata Jr., Brazo Jr., Brazo Metalico, Cerebro Maligno, Epitafo, Herejía b Rey Krimen, Robin Maravilla, Ultimo Vampiro, Sepulturero I, Terry 2000, Yakuza [losers advance]
5) Rey Krimen, Sepulturero I, Terry 2000 b Robin Maravilla, Último Vampiro, Yakuza [AULL TRIOS]
6) Black Terry, Negro Navarro, Sangre Chicana b Olímpico, Rocky Santana, Solar I

In a match where hair and mask were on the line if anyone but the champions lost, the champions lost (and Sadico didn’t show.) Sangre Chicana was telling people he’s retiring, at a date yet to be determined. Me too!

IWRG (SUN) 02/14 Arena Naucalpan [Al Filo del Ring]
1) Dinamic Black b Comando Negro
2) Eragon & Héros b Alan Extreme & Hijo del Signo
3) el Ángel, Suicida, Zatura b Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo, Gringo Loco
4) Histeria II, Psicosis II, Veneno b Bobby Lee Jr., Chico Che, Jack
5) Máscara Año 2000 & Máscara Año 2000 Jr. b Hijo de Pirata Morgan & Pirata Morgan

Mascaras easily defeated the Piratas, so there’s a tag team title match coming up.

Hijo del Diablo is so much a Gringo now, he can no longer speak Spanish!

IWRG’s entrance set looks so much better on Black Terry’s camera than on TV.

Mistico may yet be suspended. Ovaciones has interviews with Jose Luis Feliciano and Fantasma, who both say Mistico must give the Mexican National Light Heavyweight belt to Volador or face suspension. Fantasma says Mistico’s behavior in and after the title match will be brought up at today’s weekly commission meeting. Fantasma also points out Hijo del Fantasma (his son) willingly gave up his belt on Sunday, unlike Mistico. (They did make a point of that on Sunday’s show.) Fantasma says lucha libre is win and losses, and Mistico must handle losses better.

A couple follow up points on the TNA/AAA situation, noting that we still don’t really know anything but a headline on a magazine:
– Where would that leave CMLL and Dark Angel? She’s has been working in TNA far more than CMLL in recent months; she’s only had one match in Mexico this year. On the other hand, the new TNA regime seems to have lessen it’s focus on women’s wrestling. TNA’s taping TV yesterday and today, and Sarita did not appear, which could be for either reasons
– Apparently, Sean Morley’s Facebook says he’s coming to CMLL in March. If someone who’s on Facebook could verify this, that’d be helpful. Again, same problem.

My guess is this is there’s only going to be problems if TNA has CMLL and AAA wrestlers in the ring at the same time. So far, there’s been no talk about AAA sending wrestlers to TNA (just maybe the other way), it’s probably not going to be an issue.

Hijo de Tirantes was robbed at knife point this past weekend.

Milenio has an interview with Joaquin Roldan. This Thursday is said to be the first show in two years, which doesn’t seem right. There have been shows in the meantime, but CMLL says they’ve been issues with the promoters.

Cesar says Super Porky has dropped 25kg (55 lb!) since returning to CMLL.

What happened to Escorpion? He hasn’t been in CMLL since he lost the lighting match to Diamante on 12/11. I don’t believe he was part of the Sangre Nueva highlights this week on Ras de Lona. Injury?

Okumura still hopes to win a championship this year. Maybe he and Taichi can challenge Stuka & Fuego! Speaking of Taichi, one of NJPW’s Twitter accounts says Taichi is scheduled to be in CMLL (or at least out of Japan) for two years. Might as well start with the comedy if he’s going to be around that long.

Al Filo del Ring reviews Polvo de Angel, which includes LA Park, and says LA Park was the only good thing about it.

Cesar notes Mistico’s turn has changed the feelings of CMLL from the start of the year.

SuperLuchas talks about the lucha libre festival in Monterrey.

El Pancracio has interviews with Black Tiger, Xtreme Mask, and Sombra Poblana.
