IWRG on Teleformula #20 (03/20/2010)

Arena Naucalpan, 03/14/2010

Title says this was a month ago, but it feels like five.

Black Terry, Chico Che, Dr. Cerebro vs Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo, Gringo Loco: same as the other matched they were having, though the whole brass knucks DQ finish is odd given all the stuff that was completely OK.

Dhani Jones vs Máscara Año 2000 Jr. – for a non-wrestler vs wrestler, this was OK if very simple. I have no use for Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. (and none of the matches that have followed has changed my mind on it), so this way overachieved. Interested on how this will look on TV.

Perros, CMLL lineup change

PdM (MON) 04/19 Arena Fut Rap de Nuevo Laredo [El Manana]
1) Mini Laredo Kid vs Mascarita Dorada, Mini Espiritu, Mini Oriental, Mini Path Finder, Mini Cibernetico, Mini Ozz, Mini Hator, Mini Parkita [cage, mask, hair]
2) Oriental & Rossy Moreno b Estrellita & Leo and Juventud Guerrera & Medussa and Gran Alebrije & Sexy Flor
3) X-Fly b Charly Manson [hardcore]
4) El Hijo del Solitario, Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr., Sangre Fria b Damián 666, Halloween, Mr. Águila
5) Blue Demon Jr. & LA Park b el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Marco Corleone

Perros brought their car to repeat the fight from DF. El Manana reports it was a 1999 Chevrolet Caprice four door; I love that detail.

CMLL’s updated lineups on ESTO reveal a couple of changes. Today, Nosferatu is in for Virus. On Friday, the minis trios has been dropped for another Bracito de Oro vs Pequeno Warrior lightning match, so they’ll have back to back matches with the mask match next week. (Or maybe it’s for the WCW Junior Heavyweight Title?) A Molotov/Trueno vs Inquisidor/Mortiz match has been added as an opener; I’m thinking Trueno is far more likely to take Mortiz’s move of death. Valiente is still on Friday’s card (and CHIKARA hasn’t said anything.)

Fantasma says Garza wouldn’t be just throwing away the trios titles if he changed to the rudo side, but also their friendship. So sad.

Marco Corleone is writing children’s books.

Horus has a Twitter account. Actually, it looks more like Horus has someone twittering in his name.

R de Rudo talks to Psicosis II, before the most recent run-in. He says his group has no leader.

Cesar writes about LA Park faking as if he’s coming to CMLL, and Sabu & Dreamer not coming to Perros del Mal (at least on that DF show.)

DJ Spectro has a review of the DTU show with no match getting over a C+, and Mano Negra’s magazine debut in 1971.

Al Filo del Ring has the last parts of their documentary.

Cronicas Y Leyendas looks back at WagnerMania of 1975.

Kcidis talks about working on the LuchaWorld top 100.

Luchas 2000 #517 has Marco, Garza, and the Puebla invasion.

Box Y Lucha #2970 has Felino’s win. This has the magazine interview where he’s talking as if he’s just about to sign with CMLL and drop AAA. Not so much. There’s also an interview with Mini Halloween, where he says he’s signed with a US company.

Rob has recaps of the 2009 Anniversary show, 08/14/09 Arena Puebla, 08/18/09 C3, 08/14/09 AAA Lucha Libre Premier, 08/21/09 Arena Mexico, two random CMLL FSE matches and 08/28/09 CMLL & Skayde/Gran Apache.
