Mistico notes, Comando Negro and Gallo pick up championships

Mistico

Roberto Figueroa (who’s the announcer for the Monterrey show and part of Lo Mejor de La Lucha among many other hats) has talked to Mistico and confirmed that he’s going to WWE, as SuperLuchas reported earlier this weekend.

Dave Meltzer discussed this situation on Wrestling Observer Radio, explaining that WWE doesn’t just want to use Alberto Del Rio or Mistico to replace Rey Misterio. They want a half dozen guys on the main roster, maybe half of them pushed, just to make sure they keep the Hispanic audience when Misterio leaves. (And there are problems there as well.) They’re not putting all their eggs in the Mistico basket, and he’s not going to be the last guy they sign.

4) Hijo de Pirata Morgan & Pirata Morgan b El Brazo & Veneno [IWRG IC TAG]
Pirates were favorites and retained the title.
5) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro b Bestia 666, Damián 666, X-Fly [IWRG IC TRIOS]
Perros took the first, Oficials the second, and 911 escaped Damian from a valagueza and beat him with a move (different reports.) IWRG won a feud against an outside team! Perros challenged Oficials to an apuesta match.

CMLL (SUN) 01/30/2011 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Virgo b Evola
2) Black Metal & Starman b Camorra & León Blanco
3) Fuego, Stuka Jr., Valiente b Arkángel de la Muerte, Euforia, Skándalo
4) Dragón Rojo Jr., Héctor Garza, Último Guerrero b Hijo del Fantasma, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada
5) Gallo b Felino [OCCIDENTE LH]
Euforia seconded Felino (in his Feline gear) and Stuka was with Gallo. They played the national anthem before the match. Felino took the first fall, Gallo the second. Fabiruchis turned up in the third fall to root for Felino, but Pato Soria got rid of him. Felino dropped Gallo with the superbomb, but Gallo kicked out. Referee (Loco Estrada) was bumped. Gallo tried to finish off Felino, but Euforia ran in to break up a move. Felino got up to take advantage, but was pulled into a reinera and Loco Estrada recovered in time to call for the submission. Gallo’s won the title back!

CMLL in PWG:
01/29: Mr. Aguila b Rey Bucanero – Rey clearly missed the spiritual guidance of Perico. Was said to be a good match with Aguila breaking out the over the ring post tope con giro.

Felino, Héctor Garza, Negro Casas vs Blue Panther, Delta, Máximo – very standard Maximo/Garza match. They did it okay, you’ve seen it.

Mephisto vs Místico – I originally wrote stuff here that is so totally beside the point now. I hope he finds happiness.
