Puebla, Mexico, retirement, lineups

CMLL (MON) 11/22 Arena Puebla [Cinco Radio]
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 (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.


CMLL (MON) 11/29 Arena Puebla
1) Lestat & Stigma vs Espiritu Maligno & Siki Osama
2) Astro Boy, Starman, Trueno vs Durango Kid, Hooligan, Inquisidor
3) Diamante, Pegasso, Rey Cometa vs Cancerbero, Nitro, Raziel
4) Rush, Sagrado, Toscano vs Shigeo Okumura, Taichi, Yoshihashi
5) Brazo de Plata, Shocker, Strong Man vs Héctor Garza, Texano Jr., Volador Jr.

Wow. Maybe find something else to do the last hour?

CMLL (TUE) 11/30 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Astaroth & Virgo vs Templario & Titanio
2) Idolo & Magnum vs Ángel del Mal & In Memoriam
3) Black Metal & Metal Blanco vs Evola & Sangre Azul
4) Blue Panther, Máximo, Toscano vs Averno, Mephisto, Volador Jr.
5) La Sombra vs Dragón Rojo Jr.

Sangre Azul is a new name here. There was one in Xalapa last year. He’s already a favorite, there’s not enough Azuls.

I eagerly anticipate seeing that main event – it’s a Christmas present for the US show.

CMLL (SUN) 12/05 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Black Metal, Horus, Palacio Negro vs Ángel del Mal, Puma King, Tiger Kid
2) Goya Kong, Lluvia, Silueta vs La Comandante, Mima Shimoda, Princesa Blanca
3) Fuego, Metro, Stuka Jr. vs Escorpion, Pólvora, Semental
4) Máscara Dorada, Rush, Strong Man vs El Alebrije, Olímpico, Psicosis
5) Rayo de Jalisco Jr. vs Universo 2000

This is going up against Guerra de Titanes, 9 km away. It’s also a Rayo celebration.

4 thoughts to “Puebla, Mexico, retirement, lineups”

  1. “Guadalajara’s Black Metal will participate in tomorrow’s CMLL bodybuilding contest.”

    Well that explains everything now.

  2. So ” Cibernetico promises two more Bizarros at Guerra de Titantes.”

    If the two new Bizarros are as exiting as all the other guys than this should be something splendid. (SARCASM)

  3. @Daniel: The introductory video for Bizarros was awesome.

    But it already seems as though this is going to get out of control like NWO or Invasores with too many people in the group.
