CMLL (TUE) 02/16 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Acertijo b Relampago
2) Ángel del Mal & Exterminador b Astaroth & Idolo
3) Asesino Negro & Mr. Trueno b Hierro & Neutrón
4) Gallo, Metro, Rouge b Dragon Rojo Jr., Máscara Mágica, Sangre Azteca
5) Máximo & Mr. Niebla b Naito & Taichi
Recap says Maximo & Niebla joined forces, bodies, and lips to win their match. That’s definitely a Too Much Information situation. (Mr. Niebla’s explanation: I’m eccentric!) Taichi’s hair seems to have changed a little, but it still is remarkable ridiculous.
Upon arriving, Taichi told the press that he plans on being in Mexico five months or so. Two years, five months, we’ve definitely established Taichi will be in Mexico for a period of time that is longer than a day and shorter than a century.
CMLL (TUE) 02/16 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Disturbio & Semental b Camaleón & Robin Hood Jr.
2) Bronco, Durango Kid, Inquisidor b Horus, Metatrón, Trueno
3) Fuego, Molotov, Sensei DQ Nosferatu, Pólvora, Raziel
4) Ephesto, Terrible, Texano Jr. b Blue Panther, Toscano, Valiente
5) Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero b Brazo de Plata, La Sombra, Shocker
Rey Bucanero pinned Shocker, and the CMLL recap says they’re close to a hair match. What? Record says Rey had the ropes.
Toscano pinned Terrible to win the semimain, which surely means CMLL should’ve sent Toscano & Valiente after those tag team titles. Or, jet lag sucks. Rudos actually won this, fixed the result
Tecnicos won the tercera in straight falls, Nosferatu pulling Fuego’s mask in the second. Hmmm.
“Robin” is Robin Hood Jr., as introduced on Ras de Lona a while back.
AAA announced they’ll be returning to Gimnasio Juan de la Barrera in Mexico City, site of many an 90s AAA TV taping, on 03/19 for a special show, “which major surprises planned.” (I think that means TV taping) March 19th is also probably the night of CMLL’s Dos Leyendas, so it’ll be quite a heads up battle.
Today in Mistico stories, Ovaciones interviews fans about Mistico. All quoted are disappointed in Mistico for his behavior, one suggesting Mistico may have kept the light heavyweight belt to sell it on the street. Also, Shocker, Sombra, and Sagrado have turned their back on Mistico for not giving the title back. Averno and crew are the only ones who think highly of Mistico’s actions, but they don’t consider him a true rudo or member of their group either.
El Occidental says Arena Coliseo Guadalajara had a sell out for Sunday’s Mistico/Volador match. Meanwhile, Mistico is a wanted man.
Tickets go on sale this afternoon for the AAA TV taping in Toluca, with Mesias, Chessman and Laredo signing autographs.
Damian 666 talks about working in New York this weekend. He appears to be referring to these shows from Valiente Entertainment, who really ought to make their myspace photos public. Cassandro, Super Parka and Magno are also visible (though this was the group that promised Cassandro last time and didn’t have him), and Damian hope to talk the promoter into using more Perros del Mal talent (Mr. Aguila, Super Nova, Turbo, Leo) on future shows.
Cesar points out there is really no CMLL or AAA/TNA deal if all it is a couple people of minor important who happen to work in both places.
The Gladiatores has video interviews with el Angel, Kato Kung Lee, and the EAW promoters.
Cronicas Y Leyendas looks back at WWF coming to AAA, and Emilio Charles Jr. taking Miguel Perez’s hair.
Ohtani’s Jacket reviews matches from AULL, IWRG, and other locales! Maybe there should be a Tapatia award for best cameraman.
CMLL (TUE) 02/23 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Divino vs Meteoro
2) Nube Roja & Saturno vs Acertijo & Ebola
3) Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno vs Ángel del Mal & Ráfaga
4) Stuka Jr. & Valiente vs Dragon Rojo Jr. & Misterioso II
5) Hijo del Fantasma, La Sombra, Sagrado vs Felino, Máximo, Mr. Niebla
So maybe Maximo is going rudo?
