Volador/Niebla, Rey Cometa, ex-WWF tour to Mexico


CMLL (SUN) 07/10/2011 Arena Mexico [CMLL, La Catederal]

1) Artillero & Súper Comando b Höruz & Leono
2) Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Warrior b Bam Bam, Pequeño Maximo, Shockercito
3) Ángel de Plata, Metal Blanco, Palacio Negro b Arkángel de la Muerte, Loco Max, Skándalo
Angel de Plata replaced Rey Cometa. Team still somehow won!
4) Máximo, Rush, Toscano b Shigeo Okumura, Terrible, Texano
Okumura and Doble T had issues by the end of their match, leading to their loss.
5) El Alebrije, Olímpico, Volador Jr. b Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
Volador pulled Mr. Niebla’s mask and cradled him for the win.

Volador needs to show Fantasma the way out of the doghouse.

El Fideicomiso (near the end) says Rey Cometa is on the verge of leaving CMLL. That would be sad and probably get sadder. It does not read like it’s a sure thing. Cometa is listed working Tuesday in Arena Coliseo Guadalajara.

I think Cometa can do better than he’s been given in CMLL so far. But I don’t think AAA is about to give him that chance; it didn’t the first time, and now they have even more guys like him. The situation in CMLL has to be pretty bad for the indies to look like a better move. Spending more time on your full time job is probably a better option than the indies right now, but I don’t want to see Cometa do that either. There needs to be more options.

CMLL in Japan
07/10 NJPW:
6) Masato Tanaka, Yujiro (O), Tomohiro Ishii b Strong Man, Yutaka Yoshie, Tomoaki Honma (X)
7) Giant Bernard (O), Karl Anderson, Hector Garza b Hiroshi Tanahashi, Hirooki Goto, Jushin Liger (X)


Jack Evans did not win a job in TNA. I think that counts as a win? I am told he looked very good.

Other Notes

Felipe Vega, promoter of something he’s calling “WWFX”, announced a series of shows featuring US names, from mid September to mid October. Most interestingly, the people announce include current TNA wrestlers Mickie James, Ken Kennedy, Angelina Love, and Scott Steiner. Not sure how thrilled AAA would be with that, though I have strong suspicions this is not exactly on the level. 18 wrestlers are announced (someone should ask MVP is he’s working THIS promotion – Perros still have never said anything about misadvertising him on the EXPO), for five shows in Monterrey, Guadalajara, Puebla, Queretaro, and Hermosillo. Five shows could mean this is really just two weekends, maybe a weekend a month, which seems to be the new EAW schedule. They’d have to draw a lot of people and have pretty significant ticket prices to make money on this.

Averno is listed on a show next Saturday.

While in Paris, Sangre Azteca won the APC Championship.

Rob has highlights videos of 04/22/11 CMLL, 09/13/95 AAA and 09/18/95 AAA.

That would be Hijo de Black Man’s debut. Pirata Morgan Jr. hasn’t been around since last September; he appears to be fourth on the Pirata depth chart.

No Officals on the card, but they ought to be making an appearance.

Alteno is a debut, but this is not the GDL-only Sunday card they had mentioned switchign to. Perhaps next week?

AAA TV (SAT) 07/09/2011 Auditorio Benito Juarez de Veracruz [AAA Facebook, AAA PR (R de Rudo)]
1) Mickie James & Sexy Star b Fabi Apache & Mari Apache
Mickie kissed & DDT Mari this time, compared Mari to a cow, and challenged for the Reina de Reinas title.
2) Dark Dragon, Súper Fly, Tigre Cota, Tito Santana b Argos, Fenix, Laredo Kid, Sugi San
Super Fly, with some help from Dark Dragon defeated Laredo for the win. Rudos beat up tecnicos after the match.

Abyss pinned Lider in a hardcore match. Abyss gave both Lider and Tiger Black Hole Slams on thumbtacks.
4) Dr. Wagner Jr. & Zorro NC Jeff Jarrett & LA Park
LA Park and Jarrett had problems during the match. Karen and Park first were crossed up, then later Zorro hit Park with a chair and tossed it to Jarrett. Park believed Jarrett attacked him, and was very angry with him. La Socidead ran out and the match had no finish. AAA made the save, and Wagner convinced Zorro to rejoin the tecnicos. Wagner also declared himself top contender for the Mega title.
5) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown Halloween, Hijo del Lizmark, Super Crazy
Psycho top rope splashed Lizmark for the win.

2011 AAA TV Schedule
Projected Air Date #997
Mexico: 07/16

In the Quine pinta para la Corona talent search contest, these six advance to the next round: Exorcista Jr., Hijo del Exorcista, Mini Espiritu, Samurai del Sol, Corsario de Fuego and Angel del Misterio advanced. Mini Espiritu is a Puebla based wrstler, Samurai del Sol is from here in Chicago, Corsario de Fuego appears in Arena Xalapa, and Angel de Misterio is an actual hometown guy. Not sure about the Exorcistas. I don’t watch many talent search shows, but I do know people traveling to other towns to try it out is expected. Still, for a contest about finding the best local talent, it sure is odd to have few local talents. (It’s a TV show.)

Next taping 07/16 in Orizaba, which appears to have these as the top matches

4) Zorro, Electroshock, Dr. Wagner vs LA Park, Samoa Joe, Mr. Anderson
5) Psycho Circus vs Perros del Mal
