09/18-19 Lucha Times


AAA-US: AAA invades IWRG and vice/versa. Oficials and Air Force debate the proper jurisdictions of federal and municipal keepers of the peace, Silver King & Ultimo Gladiador defend their tag titles, Billy Boy and Decnnis “are in the main event.”

52MX: Assuming last week was a one off change (???), this is the poorly reviewed women’s match from Sunday and Mistico/Strong Man/Valiente vs Terrible/Texano/Volador

LATV: Solidly in the period where the main show is airing 4 matches a week, so every week has a repeat if they don’t start showing openers. New match here is Fuego/Stuka/Valiente vs Misterioso/Okumura/Yoshihashi.

GDL: back on track? Sangre/Okumura/Yoshihashi vs Angels/Rush + Atlantis/Neibla vs Maximo/Porky. Feel free to skip over this week.


CMLL: Mistico vs Volador, surely, and more Pesta Negra vs Invasors

AAA: the taping that just happened yesterday. The end of 187?

CMLL FOX: Averno vs Charly Manson, for some sort of title belt.

C3: the taping that just happened yesterday. Atlantis/UG/Felino vs Panther/Dorada/Toscano, Averno/Lyger/Okumura vs Metro/Sagrado/Valiente

Puebla: tag title match, Panther/Sombra/Sagrado vs Averno/Lyger/Mephisto

ACM: maybe the 09/06 matches?

Perros: Not sure. They may be able to air part of tomorrow’s taping (that’s IWRG’s schedule – is TVCDeportes taping two shows tomorrow?) and the ad for next week’s show certainly implied that was the plan, and even that they were going to air the main event (which seems unlikely.) They did have a show in between at Arena Aficion, but I don’t know if they taped that. Wouldn’t be surprised if this was AAA footage.

IWRG: the taping that just happened tomorrow. Wait. Decnnis vs Dr. Cerebro for a title belt. I’m sure there must be many I’m missing, but a quick search in the match finder says this is the first singles match Decnnis has ever had. Surely the first TV match. Another AAA vs IWRG main event.


CMLL-TFN (Canada): Metro vs Euforia, Sombra/Volador/Valiente vs Texano/Terrible/Mephisto, NoLimit/Okumura vs Warrior/Mistico/UG. They’re still a couple weeks out of the hair match, so I assume they’re strongly into the period where Black Warrior didn’t care much anymore.

AAA-Peru: 187 teams with Konnan, which makes the turn official. It’s funny, I just got done watching Verano de Escandalo, where 187 finally puts Konnan thru a table. Outside of the tag title change, nothing else meaningful has happened in this storyline in the four months in between. Also, WagnerManiacos vs Chessman/Kenzo/Zorro.

AAA on Televisa #954 (09/04/2010)

Plaza de Toros La Concorida, Orizaba, Veracruz, 08/14/2010

Alex Koslov, Christina Von Eerie, Sexy Star vs Aerostar, Fabi Apache, Mari Apache where the AAA Reinas de Reinas Championship & AAA Mixed Tag Titles On The Line: I was surprised about the finish, only because I could have sworn the finishing move mentioned at the time wasn’t a powerbomb. The match was good, the Aerostar dive was very bad looking (and since they may never show it again, it’s over here) and I hope they never do it again.

Heavy Metal & Octagón vs Electroshock & Último Gladiador: Every single chair/head shot in this feud really sticks out in the current climate of concussion concerns. Maybe they’re doing it safely and I haven’t noticed, but I’m thinking no. Anyway, points to Heavy Metal for hitting a guy with a guitar and then deciding he needs to do the family’s rollup to clinch the win. This seemed pretty much the end of this feud, but probably not.

Dr. Wagner Jr. vs Silver King vs Vampiro for the AAA World Heavyweight Championship: Crowd sounded so much louder on Dos De Tres’ video than on the TV. I wouldn’t need to see this match ever again, but it was okay for a three way and I had no problems with Vampiro this time around. Apparently, Vampiro’s strict moral code allows for all sorts of beatings before and after a match, but he must keep it clean while the match is in progress (except for when he walked in that match in the Yucatan to attack Wagner, oops.)

The post match was seriously melodramatic but I think the people bought it? Maybe?

Torreon, tag titles, Lyger demands a mask, GDL

AAA Wagner (SUN) 09/12 Plaza de Toros de Torreon Coahuila [AAA, La WagnerMania]
1) Hermano Violencia I & Hermano Violencia II b Black Boy & Centella Azul
2) Araña del Futuro, Arana Steel, Vector DQ Dorado Jr., Eterno, Maquina 27
3) Espanto V & Sexy Francis L Sexy Libra, Daisy Crazy, Pimpinela Escarlata, V-57, Sexy Piscis, Dulce Paola [losers advance]
4) Espanto V b Sexy Francis [hair]
5) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown b Argenis, Laredo Kid, Súper Fly
6) Silver King b Dr. Wagner Jr. and El Mesías [IWRG HEAVY]

Full results from this show. Silver King retained his title, Sexy Francis lost his hair. Building looks about half full.

Edit: This is the first successful (and recorded) IWRG IC Heavyweight Championship defense in 4 years.

CMLL (MON) 09/13 Arena Puebla [SuperLuchas, Fuego en el Ring]
1) Black Tiger, Milenium, Stigma b Ares, Espiritu Maligno, Karisma
2) Bronco, Camorra, Hooligan b Leono, Lestat, Tigre Blanco
3) Ángel de Oro, Fuego, Stuka Jr. b Euforia, Nosferatu, Pólvora
4) Blue Panther, La Sombra, Sagrado b Averno, Jushin Lyger, Mephisto
5) Héctor Garza & Mr. Águila b Máscara Dorada & Místico [CMLL TAG]

Rudos threw a fit when Tirantes wasn’t the ref for the main event, and threatened to walk out if there wasn’t a change. There was, and the tecnicos now tried to walk out, but Tirantes started to count them out. Tecnicos came back, won the first fall, and lost the second fall to a quick count. Tirantes slow counted the tecnicos and fast counted the rudos pin in the third fall. Mistico and Mascara Dorada kidnapped the tag belts from the commissioner (who had upheld Tirantes decision) and refused to give them back, demanding a rematch. Garza said they’d have to get back in line for a shot.

Sombra beat Lyger, who was ticked. Lyger pulled off Sombra’s mask and attacked him after the match.

CMLL (TUE) 09/14 Arena Mexico [@cmllmagazine, Fuego en el Ring, Cesar]
1) Horus & Robin b Disturbio & Semental
2) Cancerbero, Dr. X, Raziel b Ángel Azteca Jr., Ángel de Plata, Fabián el Gitano
3) Ayumi, Goya Kong, Luna Mágica b Amapola, Mima Shimoda, Tifany
4) Averno, Jushin Lyger, Shigeo Okumura b Metro, Sagrado, Valiente
5) Atlantis, Felino, Último Guerrero b Blue Panther, Máscara Dorada, Toscano

Felino, in as a replacement for Volador Jr., pinned his old rival Mascara Dorada clean. Volador being MIA before his big match on Friday is concerning.

Toscano was in Shocker’s spot (and Sagrado was in Toscano’s in the semimain), so that’s two straight shows Shocker has missed. The story is Shocker has a knee injury. CMLL.com’s page doesn’t have the update as I’m writing it, but news articles (using CMLL PR) have La Mascara in Shocker’s spot for Friday.

Rudos not only won the semimain, but yanked off all the masks of the tecnicos afterwards. Lyger declared he would not leave Mexico without winning a mask. Uh oh. I wonder if the Metro sponsorship is about up.

Tecnicas won their match despite Luna Magica leaving a bit early; she was having problems breathing. Goya flattened Amapola & Tiffany on the outside, and Ayumi pinned Mima with a german suplex. Said to be better than Sunday’s woman’s match.

CMLL (TUE) 09/14 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Thonder b Templario
2) Angelo & Metatrón b Acertijo & León Blanco
3) Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno b Exterminador & Malefico
4) Hijo del Fantasma, La Sombra, Strong Man b Mephisto, Mr. Águila, Mr. Niebla
5) Dragón Rojo Jr., Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca b Gallo, Metal Blanco, Rush

Something happened here, because they flipped the top two matches and Gallo replaced Palacio Negro (boooooo). Poder Mexica won all three falls, just getting excessive violence in the second match.

Strong Man was too strong for the rudos. Angelo replaced Astaroth.

Heroes del Ring bios: Rocky Romero (“he has developed a reputation as a relentless fighter by dominating ¨Anything-Goes¨ tournaments all over the world”) and Marco Corleone.

US: 10/02

Octagoncito retained the minis title, with both seconds (Mini Charly & Mini Psicosis) getting involved.

Parka and Joaquin discussed the Legion getting the best of AAA lately, with Parka blaming Joaquin for Dorian. Joaquin said to trust him. Joaquin made a couple matches for Heroes: a cage match between the AAA Army and the Milita (no specifics) and a Parka/Cibernetico tag match against The Best of La Sociedad, though that was up to Cibernetico to agree.

Tiger & Relampago had no issues as a team. They still lost, Relampago taking a top rope powerbomb for Tiger Cota. With Relampago out of it, Decnnis threw Tiger into the front row.

Alex got Pimpinela with a spinning DDT to take that match. After, Elegido talked about wanting to win the Copa Antonio Pena and also have a apuesta match with anyone in the Militas. The Stones accepted, but we’re waiting for a contract signing.

Before the semimain, Dorian decreed 187 would be kicked out of AAA if they used a weapon, while the Legion team would not. I’m behind on AAA TV, so maybe I’ve yet to see the skit where they explain who has power when. (Probably not.) Anyway, rudos brought in a bat, Lider got a hold of it, and used for the DQ. Presumably, 187 is out of AAA. The Legion stormed the ring, Damian hitting the tecnicos with a shovel. At some point here, Lider was thrown thru a table, and the rudos poured the contents of a Draino bottle on Nicho. Tiger, Laredo, Relampago and Elegido tried to make the save, but the Militia cut them off. Parka & Mesias were able to break thru to make the save.

Main event included lots of brawling and Perro Aguayo bleeding. Alex and the Militia tried to get involved, but Joaquin warned them of the 90 day suspension and they back off. Cibernetico chokeslammed Damian 666 for the pin. Joaquin sent security to force the Perros from the ring, and then asked Cibernetico if he was with them. Cibernetico shook hands and the AAA Army celebrated on the ramp.

Cibernetico was still promising the return of Los Bizarros in an interview with Dos de Tres.

Next taping is Sunday, and could be the last taping before Hereos Inmortales. That card looks like

  • El Hijo de Perro Aguayo vs Mesias
  • Silver King vs Dr. Wagner Jr. (c) [AAA HEAVY]
  • La Parka & Cibernetico vs La Sociedad (maybe LA Park & Zorro?)
  • Torneo de Antonio Pena (includes Elegido, whatever Legion guys who aren’t in the other matches, Vampiro?)
  • Militia vs AAA [cage] (Air Force? Super Fly’s turn?)
  • probably something with the women
  • maybe Jack defends his title?

Elegido & ? vs Los Bello Stones gets held off for Guerra de Titanes.

They’ve had 6 or 7 matches on this show previously, so that’s about it. The top 5 matches have all been made clear (even if the participants have not), so they’re doing better than the last show.
