CMLL on LATV #5 (03/27/2010)

Arena Mexico, 03/19/2010 – Dos Leyendas

Ángel de Oro, Fuego, Stuka Jr. vs Dragon Rojo Jr., Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca: Good match, but would’ve been stronger with a strong performance from Angel de Oro, or someone better in his spot. The Angels seem like they’re getting moved up quicker than they’re ready, but that’s what they’re doing with tecnicos right now.

Hijo del Fantasma, Máscara Dorada, Valiente vs Mephisto, Terrible, Texano Jr.: this was more standard stuff. Terrible & Texano are still a lot of fun.

Puebla, ex-AAA invade GDL and to wrestle in Puebla, Mascara/Mephisto

CMLL (MON) 04/19 Arena Puebla [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Akron & Ares b King Jaguar & Lestat
2) Eléctrico, Fantasy, Shockercito b Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pierrothito

CMLL (TUE) 04/20 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Leo b Virgo
2) El Divino & Magnum b Acertijo & Ángel del Mal
3) Ebola & Neutrón ?? Exterminador & Gallo [Relevos Increíbles]
4) Misterioso II & Sangre Azteca b Palacio Negro & Valiente
5) Dragón Rojo Jr., Felino, Texano b Brazo de Plata, Hijo del Fantasma, Toscano

After the rudos won the main event – Texano sneaking in a foul on Toscano – the Viper & Alebrije made another surprise attack. They sure get around.

Not 0nly are Ebola & Exterminador feuding, but they’re near having a hair match. Didn’t get a finish for that match.

PdM (TUE) 04/20 Arena Queretaro [Estrellas del Ring]
1) Dark Saint b Galaxi
2) El Blanco & Fuego Latino b Lince & Rey Aztlan
3) Drabek I & Drabek II DQ Alex Guajardo & Ursus [Queretaro TAG]
4) Leo b Sexy Diva and Medussa
5) X-Fly b C. Manson
6) Damián 666, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Halloween b El Hijo Del Santo, Hijo de LA Park, Hijo del Lizmark

Would not be surprised if this turned up on TV at some point. X-Fly/Charly was the usual match. Santo had the main event won, but Damian yanked his mask up and got the pin with a fast count.

CMLL (TUE) 04/20 Arena Mexico [@cmllmagazine, CMLL.com]
1) Apocalipsis & Disturbio b Bengala & Camaleón
2) Dr. X, Hooligan, Nitro DQ Fabián el Gitano, Horus, Starman
3) Bam Bam, Eléctrico, Pequeño Olímpico b Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pierrothito
4) Máximo, Rush, Sagrado b Nosferatu, Taichi, Vangelis
5) Héctor Garza, La Máscara, La Sombra DQ Ephesto, Mephisto, Terrible

Garza had some issues with his team, but they still won in straight falls. Mephisto yanked off Mascara’s mask for the DQ. Mascara challenged for his welterweight title and Mephisto accepted. If they do the match, it’ll be the first known defense of a NWA title in CMLL since Blue Demon declared them all vacant.

Olimpico pinned Pierrothito in the minis match.

Dr. X yanked Fabian’s mask for the second match DQ. Fabian made the mask challenge, but Nitro said if Fabian was challenging one Tuareg, he was challenging all of them. This is going to a 40 man cage match.

Dos de Tres says Mesias underwent shoulder surgery on Tuesday, and has an 80% chance of returning in time for TripleMania.

Over in NJPW, the current IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team champions Apollo 55 (Taguchi and Prince Devitt) have vacated their titles due to inactivity. They’re still sticking together as a team, but Mascara Dorada and Valiente pulling a first round upset over them in the 05/08 Super J Tag Team tournament seems a lot more possible now. That tournament is now for the tag titles, and Dorada & Valiente could always win those belts and lose them back in Mexico. Not very likely, but a better chance than before.

Cronicas Y Leyendas looks at Santo thinking about passing down his mask.

Kcidis draws an invasion.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

Also, the Vipers get in the ring for the first time!

AAA on Televisa #930 (03/20/2010)

Auditorio Teopanzolco, Cuernavaca, Morelos, 02/27/2010

Aerostar, Fabi Apache, May Flowers, Octagoncito vs Mini Abismo Negro, Polvo de Estrellas, Sexy Star, Último Gladiador: Fine enough, I guess, though I have no memory of it except the belt shots in the finish Same thing for May.

Atomic Boy, Crazy Boy, Lasser Boy vs Billy Boy, Decnnis, El Brazo: not enough Atomic Boy. “Boy” is the kiss of death in this group.

Jack Evans, Laredo Kid, Súper Fly vs Cuervo, Escoria, Ozz: maybe we need a running counter of Dark Family stories that appear to have been dropped. It’s March, and I’ve already got

  1. THE LOADED GLOVE
  2. The feud with the Vipers (though maybe this one was actually resolved)
  3. Their weird alliance with Zorro
  4. Kidnapping Jack Evans – never mentioned again?

Record setting pace!

Extreme Tiger, Latin Lover, Marco Corleone vs Alex Koslov, Joe Lider, Nicho el Millionario: Pretty sure they thought Latin was still going to be around if they had him beat Alex (of the three) here. Not the match, but I thought the parking lot bit with Nicho & Konnan was really good.

Cibernético & El Mesías vs Chessman & Zorro: and Chessman, taking the pins all the time, is clearly not the soon to be Rey de Ring at this moment. It’s all very strange knowing what’s coming next.
