Mistico defeats Ultimo Guerrero (painfully), Santo sneaks past Demon, FMLL lineups


CMLL (SUN) 01/16 Arena Coliseo [CMLL, Cesar]
1) Camorra & ZaycoFreesbe & Principe
2) Astro Boy, Höruz, Starman DQ Apocalipsis, Demus 3:16, Skándalo
3) Cancerbero, Euforia, RazielFuego, Rey Cometa, Tigre Blanco
4) Blue Panther, Super Porky, ToscanoAtlantis, Averno, Héctor Garza
5) Místico DQ Último Guerrero

Two singles matches, two wins for Mistico. This one was a bit of a harder win – Ultimo Guerrero got caught fouling him for the DQ. Nothing is settled. As usual.

Guerreros/Avernos and Invasors are feuding, but everyone got a long fine on the rudo side of the semimain.

Tigre Blanco seems like a replacement for no Pegasso, but that’s where they poster had him. (Which maybe means everyone else was busy elsewhere.) It sounds like it may be a long time – if ever – we see Pegasso again due to leg injuries and Rey Cometa may need to make new friends. Cancerberos won cleanly here.

Guerreros Tuareg may have made a New Year’s Resolution to make Starman miserable. Tecnicos took the segunda in straight falls, because Skandalo ripped off Starman’s mask and left him laying. A couple weeks ago, Dr. X did the same thing.

indy (FRI) 01/14 Auditorio de Tijuana [DJ Spectro]
1) Animaniac & Shamu b Spark & Super Mofles
2) Cincio, Viento, Zarco b Enfermero Jr., Memo Velasquez, Tony Casanova
3) Arandú, Star Boy, TJ Boy b Angel Metalico, Camaleon de Oro, Rubi Gardenia
4) Angel Blanco Jr., Hijo de LA Park, LA Park b El Hijo de Rey Misterio, Hijo de Rayo de Jalisco Jr., Latin Lover
5) El Hijo Del Santo b Blue Demon Jr.

Santo won with a foul of all things. Usual mask challenges after the match. This was the best match of the night.

Sounds like a much better attended show than last week’s Misterio Sr. benefit, and a much better run show. Latin Lover and Hijo de Rey Misterio are mentioned as being “erratic”.

CMLL GDL’s Twitter says La Mascara held on to the Mexican National Light Heavyweight Championship over Rey Bucanero, and Noches de Coliseo announcer RJ Figueroa says Chica de Arabia lost his/her hair to Medico Infernal in ACM tonight.

The newest Super Luchas mentions El Hijo de Medico Asesino has signed a developmental deal with WWE. I have no idea who that is – there’s a lot of people who’ve used similar gimmicks in different parts of the country, including one in IWL late last year.

DJ Spectro notes two recent passings: Chamaco Ayala, an Acapuclo luchador who also wrestled as Gran Bardo, was killed in his hometown. Ayala looks to have been a regular on Arena Coliseo Acapuclo cards from the 90s until they stopped running and had some appearances in Mexico City (including taking Panico’s hair!) Jesus Santana, who wrestled as Chico Malo III and Rudy Santana, passed away on the 8th via diabetes.

Black Terry Jr.

Johnny Villalobos took Super Brazo’s hair Saturday. It was Super Brazo’s first hair match loss in 62 days. Dr. Landru has interviews with the winner and loser.

Nino de Fuego reportedly broke the record for highest dive ever in Arena Aficion. He pulled a New Jack, of course. Nino and his partners Mascara Oriental & Ares (not Puebla) have faced rivals Antar, Cronos & Sairus at least 10 times in the same trios match over the last six months in Arena Aficion. There’s only been 40 shows in the building since then, so once every four shows (or every other week), they’ve done the same exact match. I have many question about what they must think about this, but the big one has to be “Why?” Anyway, doing a match that many times easily explains why people are jumping off high balconies by this point.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.



IWRG (THU) 01/20 Arena Naucalpan
1) Imposible vs Keshin Black
2) Dinamic Black & Miss Gaviota vs Eterno & Hammer
3) Chico Che, Freelance, Saruman vs Alan Extreme, Maldito Jr., Samot
4) Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo, Gringo Loco vs Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro
5) Multifacético, Pimpinela Escarlata, Trauma I vs Comando Negro, Scorpio Jr., Último Gladiador

Semimain is not listed as a title match but they’ve been setting it up. That’s an eclectic main event tecnico crew.

CMLL (FRI) 01/21 Arena Mexico
1) Leono & Molotov vs Disturbio & Zayco
2) Ángel Azteca Jr., Dragon Lee, Rey Cometa vs Hijo del Signo, Loco Max, Skándalo
3) Delta, Diamante, Metro vs Cancerbero, Raziel, Virus
4) Pólvora vs Sangre Azteca [lightning]
5) Blue Panther, Rush, Valiente vs Mephisto, Terrible, Texano
6) Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero, Volador Jr. vs Héctor Garza, Olímpico, Psicosis

The top two matches are booked with the plan of “whoever we didn’t send to Japan”. The first NJPW/CMLL is the 22nd, but just a few hours after his one wraps up. Only thing of note here is Sangre Azteca and Polvora finally being able to fight each other on purpose for a change.

CMLL (SUN) 01/23 Arena Coliseo
1) Bengala & Trueno vs Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Astral, Bam Bam, Fantasy vs Mercurio, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Olímpico
3) Ángel Azteca Jr., Ángel de Plata, Metálico vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Hooligan, Nitro
4) Ángel de Oro, Hijo del Fantasma, Valiente vs Terrible, Texano, Vangelis
5) Negro Casas, Último Guerrero, Volador Jr. vs El Alebrije, Olímpico, Psicosis

More rudos vs Invasors and Metalico escaping to the tercera for similar depth reasons. I sure hope they don’t book the guys coming back from Japan on the 01/24 Puebla show (but they usually do.)

CMLL (SUN) 01/23 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Divino vs Acertijo
2) Hierro & Leono vs Camorra & Infierno
3) Meteoro, Mini Maximo, Último Dragoncito vs Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito
4) Felino & Gallo vs Misterioso Jr. & Sagrado [Relevos Increíbles]
5) Blue Panther, Rotoporky, Toscano vs Ephesto, Mephisto, Rey Bucanero

Felino/Gallo feud continues here. Misterioso actually held the same title those two are feuding are before Gallo. (There’s a Mictlan reign in between, but he doesn’t seem to exist any more.) Sagrado was available.

IWRG (SUN) 01/23 Arena Naucalpan
1) Centurión vs Keshin Black
2) Kamilion & Sexy Lady vs Dark Lou & La Hechicera
3) Dinamic Black, Dr. Cerebro, Freelance vs Carta Brava Jr., Comando Negro, Imposible
4) Multifacético, Trauma I, Veneno vs Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro
5) Black Terry vs Gran ApacheÁngel Mortal [hair]

Even though the loser of the main event seems pretty obvious, it should be fun getting there.

Getting bookings on La Hechicera is what this IWRG/AAA deal is all about. (Actually, it’ll probably help the indy girls to work with someone who knows what they’re doing, so I shouldn’t be making fun.)

FMLL CMLL (SAT) 03/05 Guadalajara
1) Eléctrico, Mascarita Dorada, Último Dragoncito vs Pequeño Black Warrior, Pequeño Violencia, Pierrothito
2) Puma King, Tiger Kid, Virus vs Dr. Cerebro, Trauma I, Trauma II
3) Blue Panther & Solar I vs Negro Navarro & Satánico
4) La Máscara, La Sombra, Valiente vs Héctor Garza, Terrible, Texano Jr.
5) Oro II vs Fantasma de la Ópera [mask]
6) Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas

Note this shows don’t have a locked down building. The promotion talked about using Plaza Liberacion, but it doesn’t sound like a done deal. Oro II vs Fantasma de la Opera builds of their feud at the 2009 GDL lucha libre festival. That’s the first time we’ve seen Mr. Niebla’s name listed on a future lineup in months. Some matches of obvious interest here.

FMLL AAA (SUN) 03/06 Guadalajara
1) Aerostar, Gato Volador, Súper Fly vs Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro
2) El Brazo, Extreme Tiger, Pimpinela Escarlata vs Alan Stone, Decnnis, Tigre Cota
3) Sexy Star vs Mari ApacheLa HechiceraJennifer BlakeSúper EstrellaFabi ApacheMagnifica [hair, mask]
4) El Mesías, Electroshock, Jack Evans vs Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown
5) Cibernético, Dr. Wagner Jr., La Parka Jr. vs LA Park, Silver King, Zorro

Cibernetico will have been a rudo directly feuding with Parka for months and months before this show, so I guess AAA’s usual house show booking hard at work. The pushed feud in the hair/mask match is Super Estrellas vs Cinthia Moreno. She’s one of two Gran Cochisse daughters; the La Magnfica is either her sister or her mother.

AAA on this date means Rey de Reyes won’t be on this date. AAA being here means that show won’t be.

There were also two different in ring interview bits, so there’s plenty of material for two weeks here. My guess is week 1 is 1/2/Bizarros interview/5, and week 2 is Konnan interview/3/4/6.

Konnan came to the ring before the opening match, crowing about all the Sociedad achievements at Verano de Escandalo. (Good idea, since it’ll be a month since anyone saw it.) Zorro won the title, Los Perros ended the Streak, and LA Park defeated Mesias. This last one causes Mesias to come out, and Konnan to clear the ring. Konnan promised Mesias would have to deal with LA Park and a surprise from AAA’s past. LA Park isn’t actually booked for the next taping, so maybe this is a long term Konnan plan.

Match order was flipped to have the minis start off the show. Octagoncito won via submission.

Pimpinela and Fabi are the mixed tag champions, which is thing I’ve forgetton since it’s been so long. They won the non-title match here, will do the trios version of this on the next taping.

Bizarros were over as tecnicos with the crowd. They’re supposed to be rudos. Cibernetico told a tale of about his three year old god son – La Parka’s son. The child is a brat, Cibernetico explained, so he had to make take corrective action. Cibernetico showed off an x-ray, so the idea is Cibernetico hit La Parka’s child so hard that he needed to go to the hospital. Okay. La Parka waited until Cibernetico finished his story to run out and try to kill the man, but the Bizarros beat Parka up. Tiger and Jack ran them off and Parka vowed revenge and all that.

Ozz beat Tiger Cota via Darketa. Super Fly and the Stones attacked the match, bleeding into the start of the next match. Alan yanked off Elegido’s mask and cradled him to win that one.

Bestia 666 made his AAA match debut, replacing X-Fly. I like to pretend X-Fly refused to do the job here because he’s a triple champion, but I’d guess the reason was a lot less dramatic. Bestia took the pin, but Perro Jr. turned up to help yank off their masks post match. Challenges after, and it feels like they’re setting up a triple masks vs hair match for down the road.

Charly returns to AAA with a submission win via El Pozo over La Parka, which I’m not sure he would’ve gotten had he not left on his 2010 odyssey. La Parka not only lost, but the Bizarros forced the x-ray print from earlier on him, then went off to celebrate.

Next taping is 12 days away in Toluca.
