Mistico & Felino win, but don’t get along; LA Park, lineups

CMLL (FRI) 03/12 Arena Mexico [SuperLuchas]
1) Metálico & Tigre Blanco b Camorra & Durango Kid
2) Dr. X, Hooligan, Nitro b Delta, Diamante, Guerrero Maya Jr.
3) Bracito de Oro DQ Pequeño Warrior [lightning]
4) Fuego, Rush, Stuka Jr. b Euforia, Pólvora, Virus
5) Atlantis, Mr. Niebla, Último Guerrero DQ Blue Panther, Brazo de Plata, Héctor Garza
6) Felino, Místico, Negro Casas b La Máscara, La Sombra, Volador Jr.

Tecnico took the first (campana on Casas, guillotine legdrop on Felino), rudos took the second (Felino on Sombra, Negro on Volador). Mistico was about to finish Volador in the third, but Felino swooped in and stole the pin with a casita. Mistico was unhappy, Sombra & Volador were unhappy about losing, Felino was loving life. Sombra was limping late in the match due to his big toe injury; they really should have him protected that left foot all week.

Ultimo Guerrero faked a foul from Garza for the DQ. Warrior pulled off Oro’s mask for the DQ in that match.

Lots of hurt people beyond Sombra: Euforia & Stuka hurt after a Stuka dive, Bracito de Oro cut on the arm during his match, Dr. X limping thru the second half of his match.

SuperLuchas has a big detailed preview of Dos Leyendas, which is great if a week early.

How concerned is CMLL about Blue Demon “stripping” them of the NWA title? It took ten days for someone to even get a quote from CMLL about it. Mephisto (also here) says he won his belt in the ring, so he clearly still is champion, none of this tournament nonsense. He’d be open to defending the title against people outside the promotion who were up to the standards of the title match, but only people in CMLL are really up to those standards.

CMLL (TUE) 03/16 Arena Mexico
1) Bengala, Principe, Robin vs Cholo, Semental, Zayco
2) Eléctrico vs Shockercito, Bracito de Oro, Fantasy, Último Dragoncito, Pequeño Warrior, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Violencia, Astral, Pequeño Universo 2000 [cibernetico]
3) Amapola vs Marcela [CMLL WOMEN]
4) Hijo del Fantasma, Metro, Sagrado vs Averno, Ephesto, Shigeo Okumura
5) Shocker vs Rey Bucanero

Very peculiar card; it’s one they’d run if there was someone to run against, though I’m not sure who that’d be. Bam Bam, Damian, Pierrothito and Olimpico are all notable missing from the cibernetico; it’s like the best of the rest. Astral is oddly listed with the rudos, just to make the numbers work. Should be a pretty good show, but I wonder what caused it.

Friday’s card you know.

CMLL (SUN) 03/21 Arena Coliseo
1) Rayo Tapatío I & Rayo Tapatío II vs Camorra & Mortis
2) Astro Boy, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Bronco, Puma King, Tiger Kid
3) Ángel de Oro, Ángel de Plata, Rush vs Dr. X, Hooligan, Nitro
4) Hijo del Fantasma, Toscano, Valiente vs Euforia, Shigeo Okumura, Vangelis
5) Blue Panther, Héctor Garza, Místico vs Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Taichi

Again, Mistico goes back to being a tecnico (or at least being on the tecnico side) when Volador is not around. Don’t really see how that works but I guess we’ll find out. Mortis is new; there’s one in Tijuana, no idea if this is him or if this is just a fake out.

Where should I start with this? Where do YOU want to start? I think I need a second. You sure can’t complain about nothing happening here. I think inverted pyramid and copious bolding is the rule of the day. Before even that, it might be worth a trip to Dos de Tres’ facebook page, which out did AAA’s own website in live coverage, including video of the biggest events. I’ve tried to link the video in the proper spots.
There were definitely big events, and the biggest was the run-in by L.A. Park, the original La Parka. He showed up after the conclusion of the seventh match, where all the legion’s men (including Hernadnez) and women were fought off by the Psycho Circus, and Cibernetico was able to cleanly defeat Konnan. That seemed to cap off that feud, but the Legion attacked again after the match. Mesias ran out for the save, but a mystery man in a black coat and hood ran in and helped the rudo. As Koslov and Hernandez continued to stomp Mesias and Cibernetico, the man in black revealed himself to be LA Park.
Prior to this match, Dorian Roldan was talking to someone about the start of the Era of Dorian Roldan, and this was now revealed to be LA Park. La Parka Jr. and Joaquin Roldan immediately walked out and had to be held back from fighting LA Park.  Park reminded us he was with Konnan in WCW, and now Konnan brought him back to his rightful place in AAA. La Parka Jr. thanked Dorian for bringing Park here, so he could unmask “this pig”. Parka did his dance in the ring, which angered LA Park, but the Legion held him back.
Hopefully, those involved have learned something from how the Gronda/Gronda feud went, and everyone involved is on the same page about what’s going to happen and how long it’s going to take. Even though it’d be awful fast by lucha libre standards, I would not be surprised to see the mask match happen at TripleMania. It’s a TripleMania main event level match for sure, and there’s no sense in holding it over for a year. Thematically, it might fit better at the Antonio Pena show, but the longer they string it out, the more chances for it to never make it to the finish.
As for that finish…for the last 13.5 years, AAA has treated La Parka Jr. as the one true La Parka. Occasionally, that meant going as far as pretending he was the only Parka that ever existed, and crediting him with the accomplishments of the first. Now that it’s near the end, or close to it for both guys, I would be surprised to see AAA change their minds.
It’s probably not a coincidence Hijo del LA Park is getting his start Sunday. Don’t have the slightest clue how this affects Los Perros del Mal’s plans for LA Park. He could probably work both if both promotions were okay with it, but they never are.
You think reading Park/Parka is confusion, how are those chants going to work?
Buried underneath this is Electroshock winning the AAA World Heavyweight Championship. In a triple threat match, where the first victory carried the day, Electro beat Mr. Anderson with the Electrolock. Mesias was outside the ring, and too slow back inside to break it up, so he lost the title without being directly defeated. Mesias was strechered out after the match. Before the match, Anderson did a promo on the crowd, and may have attacked Arturo Rivers. After the match, Dr. Wagner Jr., Silver King, and Ultimo Gladiador showed up and circled Electro as if they were about to attack. Wagner offered a handshake, Electro thought about it, shook, and Wagner raised his arm in congratulation. It appears they’re back on the same page.
Latin Lover was unaccountably missing from all of this. There’s no explanation from AAA. It appears he either did not show or just decided not to go out there for this match. This is probably the end for Latin Lover in AAA for the time being. I don’t want to say it’s for good, because he always comes back, but he’s probably not back any time soon.
Who challenges Electroshock first? It seems to be certainly Mesias, since the Rey de Reyes winner is Chessman, and I don’t think they’re going to do Electro/Chessman. Chessman won his semifinal with a spear on La Parka Jr. and a super fast count from Hijo de Tirantes (who seemed back to being a total rudo on this show; he was kept out of the title match for that reason.) Marco and Hernandez picked up clean wins in their semis, then feuded with each other in the final. Marco eliminated Hernandez, but Hernandez came back to attack Marco, setting him for Chessman’s superkick to win the tournament. I would guess this means they’ve have more of a plan for Hernandez/Marco than for Chessman’s next match, but we’ll see if plans change.
The other title match saw no change, but apparently some extreme bits. Thumbtacks were used in the Tiger/Koslov match, which led to Koslov bleeding during it. Koslov still manages to sneak in a foul, but Tiger recovered for the win and retained his title.
As expected, Pimpinela Escarlata paid for the assistance of Hermandad Extreme. With Nicho and Lider’s help, Pimpi defeated Los WagnerManiacos (Nicho & Lider on Gladiador) to earn a spot with them. WagnerManiacos were still not sold on this idea after the match, so this story is far from complete. Pimpi did not appear with the rest of the WagnerManiacos at the close of the show.
The women’s match ended with a dive train. After Mari did a tope, Sexi was preparing to do who knows what, but Cinthia snuck up behind her, turned her around, and finished her with a chinbreaker. That sets up the title match for next Friday.
Speaking of, after tonights’ show…
  • Pimpinela Escarlata is probably the person teaming with Dr. Wagner Jr. & Silver King as the new WagnerManiaco
  • LA Park is likely the mystery man teaming with the Foreign Legion against Cibernetico & the Psycho Circus.
