Some people were wrestling in front of thousands of people in front of the Tokyo Dome. Mistico was getting pwned by a parrot. In the third, the referees were distracted by dives. Perico (who the recaps names “Zacarias”) distracted Mistico, and Negro fouled him again for the pin.
Sangre actually won a match! I have no idea what this means. Mephisto might have suffered a shoulder injury in his match.
CMLL in NJPW:
01/04: La Sombra & Mascara Dorada b Jushin Liger & Hector Garza – Sombra pinned Liger.
Both Dorada and Sombra had new outfits, Dorada wearing a red version of his gear for the first time. Pretty likely we’ll get a Sombra/Lyger CMLL Middlweight title match on one of the CMLL/NJPW shows later this month; Sombra challenged for it, and for the IWGP Junior Tag belts. Lineups for the CMLL shows should be other soon.
Fuego en el Ring has an interview with Guerrero Samurai about his referee stint this past Sunday. Samurai says he was planning on retiring from the ring this year, but CMLL offered a spot as referee and he liked the idea. It sounds like he still planning on doing a few more matches before retiring as a referee this year, but wants to become a good referee after that. He’s probably still due to lose his hair to Malefico or someone else around here.
For the first time in over four years, Arena Coliseo DF will host a boxing event this Saturday. The full lineup is here, and the event will are on Televisa.
