CMLL (THU) 04/08 Arena Neza [Estrellas del Ring]
1) Aguilia Misteriosa & Mini Flash b Hooligan I & Hooligan II
2) Carta Brava Jr., Halcon Tarin, Halcon Tarin Jr. b Bizarro, El Canalla, Ice Killer
3) Brazo Cibernetico Jr., Brazo de Platino, Super Brazo b Demonio Negro, Loco Max, Skándalo
4) Dark Angel, Lluvia, Marcela b Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sujei
5) La Sombra & Volador Jr. b Felino & Místico
Rudos took the first, tecnicos took the second. Third came down to Volador and Mistico. With the referee distracted, Felino (eliminated earlier) came back into the ring and stole Mistico’s mask, a bit of revenge for Dos Leyendas. Volador pinned Mistico for the win.
Marcela replaces Lady Apache. Or maybe they just traded bookings from here and Puebla?
Friday Night Arena Mexico previews: ESTO, Notimex, Ovaciones. Big story is Mistico’s return to the tecnico side, teaming with Sombra & Mascara Dorada. This won’t end well. Semimain is the trios champs vs Terrible, Texano, Vangelis, which sure seems like a title match setup.
Konami sent out a press release yesterday announcing they’d be distributing AAA’s video game in the US. Release date is August 9th (a Monday; odd, because usual releases are Tuesdays.) Beyond the press release, Konami was showing off the game last night. Gameinformer has a good review, noting the gameplay doesn’t distinguish it from other wrestling games, but it does include mask and hair wagering. Looking thru the pictures, Extreme Tiger made the roster. Cuervo and Super Fly surprised me, but then I remembered we had seen them before.
Ovaciones says Wagner/Electro (for the title) and Parka/Park (stip unknown) are signed for TripleMania. I think that’s likely but not for certain.
Black Mamba talks talks about Monday’s mask vs hair match with Pimpinela Escarlata.
Black Terry Jr. has photos of last night’s IWRG show.
LuchaWorld has 80 to 71 of the best in 2009 countdown.
