Mascarita Dorada, tickets, lineups

According to this week’s SuperLuchas magazine, Mascarita Dorada has been let go from CMLL due to working (prohibited) Hijo del Santo shows. All he had to do was not eat the apple. Not exactly sure who owns the Dorada name – it is a mask Sagrada was using previously in AAA a couple times, but then CMLL probably wouldn’t have put someone in a Mascara Dorada gimmick if they didn’t own that one.

CMLL continues to low it’s limbo bar of ticket prices. Today, all kids get in free (to both Arena Coliseo DF and Guadalajara) and all tickets are 80 pesos and under for adults. They’re also expanding their 5 kids on 1 adult ticket to Guadalajara.

Looks like ACM had:

  • 03/02: Pirata Morgan & Sergio Romo Jr. b Diluvio Negro I & Diluvio Negro II
  • 02/28: Electroshock, Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr., Silver King b Black Warrior, El Mesías, La Parka Jr.

Just the 2 matches.

Cesar ranks the most likely to lose their mask on Dos Leyendas, and figures out who would lose each possible matchup. This reminded me of ESPN.com’s Draft Lottery machine, though I might have just insulted Cesar by comparing him to Chad Ford. Anyway, I think he’s underrated CMLL’s opinion of Volador Jr. and definitely believe he’d beat Felino if it came down to those two. The idea about the real feud here being Mistico vs Himself (or his evil self) is interesting, but I don’t think that’s a feud that resolves that quick. Felino/Mistico as rudo/rudo won’t work, and Mistico turning back tecnico makes this whole year so far a waste – if they really wanted to do Felino/Mistico at Anniversary show, they already had it set up before they turned Mistico.

Latest in Sean Morley Facebook excitement: his CMLL trip was canceled.

Cesar also talks about the situation around the Mexican Heavyweight Title, spinning it around into an indictment of the lucha libre press. I’ve gone back and forth with similar thoughts this week. On one hand, Charly/Perros/X-Fly all deserved to get their side of the story told; as weak as it was, it was good that those who wanted to got the chance to respond. At the same time, it shouldn’t have taken 3 days and an unrelated press conference to get that response and if it did, they shouldn’t have held of writing about it for 3 days (which it appeared every one did.)

Record has posted a teaser for their upcoming magazine interview of Mascara Ano 2000.

A Brusseles Fine Arts museum featured a lucha libre event. The wrestlers were 12-16 year olds, trained by a man from Congo. I dunno.

They’re only sending 6 men here, because

CMLL (SUN) 03/14 Plaza Voluntad del Acero, Lazaro Cardenas, Michoacan

they’ve got another big show to run. Not sure what the deal is with this show, but obviously bigger than usual. Scorpio Jr. & Canelo Casas working an otherwise all CMLL show (the tercera features guys they use a bit off TV for shows like this, but never on it) is interesting but may not actually mean anything.

I wonder where Valiente & La Mascara are? Sangre could use his old rivals.
