CMLL set out a press release confirming the Histeria/Alebrije to Morphosis/Kraneo name changes. There’s a picture at the link; Kraneo is wearing a half Alebrije/half Kraneo mask. Still no mention of Cuije. The story they’re going with is these two are so dedicated to the Invasion, they’ve come up with new characters to put new energy into their work. Right. I’d assume this was also something taped for Ras de Lona, which no one will ever see (until it airs on Guerreros del Ring, maybe.)
Meanwhile, Psicosis say he won’t be changing his name, because his lawsuit situation is slightly different than Alebrije & Histeria, and he’ll have his name until he retires. That seems unlikely, but we’ll go with it. Psicosis, asked about El Consejo, says those guys are making a mistake – it’s much better in CMLL than AAA and the indies. As bad as the economic situation is in CMLL right now, Psicosis feels it’s worse elsewhere, and it’s very tough being in AAA and the indies. Psicosis’ current goal is to get the trios titles back.
XMW says it’s bringing in XL (Chile) and Dick Togo (planet Earth) for it’s next show, sometime in February. That would mean either Togo is hanging around for a while, or he’s coming back in a few weeks. Hope other people use him as well.
LyC has a commercial for it’s next show, a note about today’s Olympic wrestling training, and interviews with Genocida (teaming with his retired father in the upcoming tag tournament), Mini Big Neurosis (who does not want to be a mini), and Kratoz (who says all wrestlers need to be well rounded – also, spelled his name differently than I’d seen before.)
Lucha Libre in Japan
Silueta must be headed back to REINA, because she’s on the REINA 01/15 show. She’s got a REINA IJ title defense versus “Saya”.
AULL (SAT) 01/14/2012 Arena Lopez Mateos
1) Lince X & Sol de Oriente vs Karma & Spider Boy
2) Celestial, Cósmico, Rey Cristal vs Mini Talisman, Mr. Aguilita, Pequeno Demonio
3) Chik Tormenta, Keira, Vanely vs Felina Metalica, La Vaquerita, Yuki Star
4) Daga, Eterno, Flamita vs Sádico, Trauma I, Trauma II
5) Atlantis, Blue Panther, Solar I vs Felino, Negro Navarro, Último Guerrero
BT Jr. mentioned this card on twitter (@BLACKTERRY) – top two matches look interesting. I really don’t know how it’s going to work when Ultimo Guerrero wants to do two 3 minutes falls to start, because Negro & Solar aren’t done with their fist bit in that time.
