Today, we’re talking about three categories (odd numbers – one’s pretty simple)
- Best Unit
- Best Rivalry
- Best Promotion/Territory
A couple notes about the last one, after the link
Both matches were just OK.
Ángel Azteca Jr., Fabián el Gitano, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Arkangel de la Muerte, Nitro, Skándalo – Haven’t gotten to see a lot of Guerrero Maya but I thought he was good here. If I had to guess, I would guess Arkangel/Angel Azteca Jr. isn’t happening until about 2013.
Hijo del Fantasma, La Sombra, Sagrado vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas – Peste Negra was amusing here, but this wasn’t much, just the final set up for the title match.
Not much going on this morning. So, a chart: Mexico ratings since we’ve been tracking them:
Fuego en el Ring talks to Taichi about coming to Mexico. He wants to win a title and a mask while he’s here. Good luck at that. In another interview, Sangre Azteca complains about not getting a rematch for the welterweight title or any other title.
Cesar says Mascara Dorada flashy dive is now called El Destello Dorada.
LuchandoLibre has a video interview with the wrestler claiming to be the first Parkita. He’s probably right, too.
Box Y Lucha has Villano III talking about being forced to wrestle at gunpoint, Monsther introducing his new partner Frankenstein,
LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.
Ras de Lona #85 is up.
indy (SUN) 02/21 Arena Coliseo Monterrey
1) Black Poison & Diamante Negro vs Halcón Peregrino & Super Cometa
2) Dranser & Scravos vs Gemelo Muerte I & Gemelo Muerte II
3) Principe de Oro & Virtual X vs Black Soul & Titanik
4) Misterioso Jr. (Satillo), Pancho Tequila, Rey Hechicero vs Neurosis, Raiden, Sergio Romo Jr.
5) Gato Fantasma & Hijo del Ninja vs Furor & Galactar

CMLL (MON) 02/22 Arena Puebla
1) King Jaguar & SWAT vs Ares & Toro Bill Sr.
2) Astral, Bam Bam, Eléctrico vs Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior
3) Ángel de Oro, Ángel de Plata, Rush vs Euforia, Pólvora, Virus
4) Brazo de Plata, La Máscara, Máscara Dorada vs Averno, Terrible, Texano Jr.
5) Shocker, Strong Man, Volador Jr. vs Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero
Bam Bam and Violencia were involved in the finish last week and are back here, so perhaps they’re setting up a title defense.
AAA-US: Morishima/Mesias, WagnerManiacos vs Legion. Listed as 2h30m show this week.
52MX: They have to be switching the matches around this week. At least I’m refusing to believe otherwise. That means women and title match here.
IWRG-TF: who knows. I’ve got the 2/3 from the week after they aired this week, but there’s no pattern here.
CMLL: top 3, so another Felino/Sombra match in addition to the main event parajes incriedble
AAA-MEX: Wagner/Electro vs Mesias/Marco, and more CiberClowns vs Legion.
FOX-CMLL: Poder Mexica vs Dorada/Metro/Sagrado, and Triad vs Panther/Toscano/Strongman. Listed at 5pm this week, so if you’re the one person in Mexico who has TeleFormula, Fox Sports, and 52MX, you’ve got three one hour shows running against each other.
C3: top 4, including the sudden Shocker/Bucanero feud.
Monterrey: Couple matches from Tuesday, because it doesn’t look like they had a show on Sunday.
Puebla: probably the full show, though it’s tough to tell becuase TVC Deportes doesn’t have a schedule up for Monday
PdM: All that’s left to air from 01/31 is the Super Crazy/Super Nova trios and the main event. I guess we find out if there’s actually if issues if it airs (and/or if Santo works there again.)
CMLL-TFN: More Super Sky Team.
