CMLL Guadalajara on Teleformula #21 (11/14/2010)

Mascara Dorada, 2010

Arena Coliseo Guadalajara, 10/12/2010

Women’s split the difference of the other two this weekend. Tiffany was better here, and she’s got a lot more personality than most of the women. There’s a role for her here, and this was a better performance.

It’s always the Panther matches (and usually the Averno ones) where the usual beatdown->comeback formula get thrown out to do something slightly different. It may be because he’s the only left who remembers lucha before that formula and cares enough to try something different. Not a lot of Dorada but he looked good in what he did.

Puebla, Mexico, retirement, lineups

4) Mephisto, Taichi, Vangelis b Máximo, Metro, Sagrado
5) Atlantis, Negro Casas, Volador Jr. b Charly Manson, Olímpico, Psicosis

Last week, Psicosis II unmasked Psicosis III on Luchas 2000. This week, AAA ripped both of them in Luchas 2000. Psicosis II responded after his match, talking about Black Abyss coming to CMLL soon, promising more surprises and saying AAA/Dorian started by treating people badly.

CMLL

CMLL (TUE) 11/23 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Camaleón & Robin b Cholo & Semental
2) Astro Boy, Molotov, Starman b Escorpion, Inquisidor, Puma King
3) Ángel Azteca Jr., Ángel de Oro, Ángel de Plata DQ Loco Max, Pólvora, Skándalo
4) Blue Panther, Stuka Jr., Toscano b Shigeo Okumura, Vangelis, Yoshihashi
5) Hijo del Fantasma, La Máscara, Místico b Ephesto, Taichi, Texano

All tecnico night. All five people who went to the show were thrilled. Attendance looks sparse.

Rey Bucanero was originally listed in the main event, but they switched him out for Ephesto sometime in the last few days, and Yoshihashi took Ephesto’s place on in the semimain. Tecnicos won, but Fantasma was still strechered out after a Taichi move. Two stretcher rides in three days for Fantasma.

Semimain ended with dueling pin – Vangelis on Stuka and Toscano on Okumura – but since Okumura was the captain, the tecnicos won.

Loco Max fouled Angel de Oro for a straight fall DQ loss. His hair still needs at least a couple months.

Also, this past weekend, Arena Puebla handed out it’s awards for locals at it’s annual dinner/dance.

Best Tecnico: Milenium
Best Rudo: Fuerza Chicana
Promising: Akron
Special Recognition: Black Tiger (25 years), Espiritu Maligno.

Mr. Rafaga, who lost his match to Pierrothito last year and last wrestled in October, announced his retirement at this event. This is probably a legit retirement, since there’s not many Puebla spots to go around as it is.

In a video promo for Mi Lucha Libre, Cibernetico promises two more Bizarros at Guerra de Titantes. How big is this group going to be?

  • There are arrest warrants out (and a mug shot) for a suspect in Solid’s murder.
  • Guadalajara’s Black Metal will participate in tomorrow’s CMLL bodybuilding contest.
  • EAW has a show. First time since they disappeared before the Lucha Libre Expo shows.
  • Mephisto says he spent his time in the hospital planning revenge on Fantasma. I guess part of the plan was not treating it like a blood feud on Ras de Lona.
  • Mi Lucha Libre has an audio interview with Dr. Wagner Jr.
