Tirantes was the scheduled referee for the main event, but Mistico complained to the commission. Commission agreed and sent Tirantes to the back, which greatly angered Tirantes. Tigre Hispano refereed the match. Psicosis won the first fall, but Mistico won falls two and three to take the match. Mistico asked for a mask match again, but Psicosis said they must have a title match before he’d consider it. The story is, Mistico doesn’t have a title (the IWRG and WWA ones are being treated as if they don’t exist), so this is a stalling tactic and maybe Mistico needs to win a title really soon.

Alebrije and the Mini Head Hunters were seen in the crowd, watching the main event.

Ultimo Guerrero ran thru the first two rounds of  CMLL Universal Tournament Block A by dropping Averno & Mascara Dorada with Guerrero Specials. He had one more for Sombra in the semifinal, but Sombra shockingly kicked out, Ultimo Guerrero freaked out, and Sombra rolled him up to take this block. Most matches were around 4 minutes, though Texano’s matches were shorter and the semifinal went about 9. No sign of any breakup in the Ephesto/Texano match.

Rey Bucanero has a new parrot mascot. For real.

Second went straight falls when Loco Max fouled Angel de Oro.

Lucha Libre USA announced yesterday that Carlito Colon would part of their Las Vegas taping, next week.

Ras de Lona was all about interviewing the guys in yesterday’s Universal tournament, which is less useful if you already know who won. At least everyone had their belt (though Dorada only seemed to have 1.) They also had bits from the expo and from Sangre Azteca in Spain. There was also a segment with the surviving members of Peste Negra; Mr. Niebla’s name was mentioned for the first time in weeks, and I think they said Niebla is on vacation (but it was a comedy segment.) Rey was introduced as an ally of Pestea Negra, but not a member.

Cibernetico is in a new Burger King commerical.

CMLL.com has added the PWR Women’s Championship to it’s list of titles.

Cronicas Y Leyendas looks back at Solitario vs Erick Embry.

Dos de Tres has a feature on Pimpinela.


CMLL (FRI) 08/06 Arena Mexico
1) Bengala & Starman vs Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Eléctrico, Fantasy, Tzuki vs Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Violencia
3) Blue Panther, Sagrado, Toscano vs Felino, Pólvora, Shigeo Okumura
4) Jushin Lyger vs Metro, Volador Jr., Héctor Garza, Mr. Águila, La Máscara, Negro Casas, Valiente [CMLL Universal, tournament]
5) La Sombra, Místico, Shocker vs El Alebrije, Olímpico, Psicosis

More Psicosis/Mistico. Do Alebrije & Cuije still have the AAA Mascot tag titles? Mistico/Monito vs Alebrije/Cuije!

It’s probably Lyger or Volador, though Garza, Aguila, or Negro Casas would not be unthinkable.

Ras de Lona announced 08/08’s main event as Mistico, Rayo, Texano, Terrible vs Volador, Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Super Porky in a Relevos Increíbles match for Arena Mexico.

Lucha Libre USA: Masked Warriors #2 (07/23/2010)

taped 06/06/10 in Palm Springs.

Not as many words this time, I promise.

The last episode ended with two big questions

1) who was this mysterious guy helping Lizmark Jr.?
2) was there some sort of alliance between Tinieblas, Neutronic, Lizmark Jr., and Hombre Sin Nombre?

The answers given

heck of a dive

1) Sydistiko, which was mentioned in the first moments of the show as if it was not a mystery to be solved, and barely as if it was a mystery – they knew plenty about him later
2) who knows, it was never brought up.

The big question for next week: uh – people in the title tournament? Maybe? Definitely not named people in the matches. Maybe who attacked Super Nova, but the announcers were certain it was Rellik for reasons not clear to me.

Is RJ Brewer a joke because he lost his first match (after getting quite a bit more promo time than Magno) or he totally proven correct about the wrongness of lucha libre after loses in a finish that isn’t fair and wouldn’t work in US wrestler? Maybe both? I think I need to mention his mom here because I don’t think you’re allowed to go 30 seconds without referencing her.

I liked the Lizmark/Syd vs Nova/Manson tag match and thought Sydistiko was really good as his character. And Lujo’s dive in the other tag match was impressive.

obscure trivia answer which only exposes my complete geekiness: 181 pounds, Seattle, Washington was Brian Kendrick’s weight/hometown in WWE. Probably elsewhere too. I have no idea why I remember that.

always good to recruit after a loss

These results are not complete. If you flip thru Black Terry’s flickr, the first photo you see are Heddi Karou (from the Perros show) putting a headlock on noted blue man Hilario. Argenis is on the apron for a dive, so I guess it’s a dark match that won’t be acknowledged. The other opening match foreigner from the Perros show, Naruto, turns up as a lumberjack, and might have been in this match too.

Results seem to have the wrong order. Air Force vs rudo appears to be the second match. After the match, Konnan, Dorian, Halloween, and Damian hit the ring, helped beat up the tecnicos. Dorian declared everyone must be with the Legion or AAA, and Decnnis apparently had brokered a deal to start a new lesser faction in association with the Legion, called La Milicia. Billy, Tiger Cota and Chris Stone (not pictured) all signed up, and it’s unclear if Tiger or Decnnis’ partners will also be involved. That interview has Decnnis explaining that he’s forming this group to move up the card, and I do believe some of them will move up the card (so they can take the pinfall loss in matches where no one else will.)

From when Konnan “won control of AAA” thru about TripleMania 2009, the rudos were all budding up to Konnan or turned up as his random henchmen – the Abismo-less Vipers and the Sect were used in this way. It seems we’re just going back to that, so I’d guess the Sect get new t-shirts again. Wonder if this means the Psycho Circus finally turns tecnico, or just joins a new Cibernetico group.

Jennifer Blake replaced Sexi Star. Sexi’s off in Tampa, taking photos of highway signs , which every reads as a tease of going to WWE (FCW) or TNA. Sometimes a photo is just a photo. Match was randomly a lumberjack strap match, with Tiger Cota, Billy Boy, Atomic Boy and Decnnis on the outside. Photos show more guys. Tiger Cota got in a shot on Fabi which led to the rudas winning.

Electroshock replaced Hernandez for reasons unclear. After a match with fouls, Silver King got a “clean” pin on Dr. Wagner to build to his title shot.

Konnan helped out the rudos in the main event, and might have caused the DQ. It’s not especially clear. Mesias, hiding his face under a ski mask for no particular reason, ran out for the save, unmasked himself, and challenged (the not-present) Perro Aguayo for Verano de Escandalo. Probably going to be a trios!

Next taping is a week from today in Puebla.
