match 4

nice to see you, Metatron

Ángel Azteca Jr., Metatrón, Rey Cometa vs Hijo del Signo, Puma King, Skándalo: Cometa needs better partners! Azteca was not so bad. Metatron was bad. Sangre would’ve felt totally out of place here, but he would’ve been better. Right team won, at least. Puma and Signo’s matching gear should earn them an Arena Coliseo tag team title shot. That really should be the bar to entry for those titles.

rudo double splashes that actually worked!

Euforia, Raziel, Virus vs Hooligan, Loco Max, Nitro: A little bit better than last week, but this feud isn’t clicking for me. The Virus/Loco Max stuff is okay, but we’re just getting two long beatdowns and no one’s doing consistently interesting in them. Cancerberos are generally better than the Tuareg but better when they’ve got some técnicos to work off of.

poor Mije

Fuego, Hijo del Fantasma, Sangre Azteca vs Kraneo, Morphosis, Mr. Águila: It feels like everyone faces everyone, but there are more divides than can be easily noticed. Fuego & Sangre have been third match guys and the Invasors haven’t come across them much, nearly at all. They were not as excited by this possibility as I was, having a pretty ordinary match.

watch the fan in the stripped shirt

Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas vs Ángel de Oro, La Máscara, Super Porky: This wasn’t strictly by the number, they had some new ideas to try out, but they hadn’t progressed to being actually good ideas. Angel de Oro is in these matches but doesn’t feel like a main event guy. Brazo de Plata was a bit sad here. Felino worked hard.

Teams were Consagrados (vets) vs FILL (IWRG young guys.) Match came down to Freyser vs Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., only for X-Fly to come back to hit Freyser with a light tube. Mascara was unhappy with the win and refused the trophy, while X-Fly and Freyser made challenges.

CMLL (TUE) 02/21/2012 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Bobby Zavala & Cholo b Camaleón & Freesbe
2) Demus 3:16, Pequeño Olímpico, Pierrothito b Aereo, Pequeño Halcón, Último Dragoncito
No Nino de Acero; Demus took his place. recap says Mercurio is on the tecnico side, but the pictures show Aereo (who was scheduled.) Rudos took 2/3.
3) Cancerbero, Puma King, Raziel b Pegasso, Rey Cometa, Starman
Completely different rudo side than advertised – Loco max, Nosferatu, and Skandalo.
4) Hijo del Fantasma, Máscara Dorada, Super Porky b Morphosis, Olímpico, Shigeo Okumura
Super Porky replaced Stuka. Tecincos took 1/3.
5) Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Tiger b Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr.
Bucanero snuck in a foul on Atlantis. Tecnicos demanded a rematch, but TRT refused.

Nearly 20% of the lineup changed, which is very high rate. Low attendance.

Tercera Caida is not airing this week, for unknown reasons. They published a note on their Twitter and Facebook, saying they wanted to do to the show and implying someone else prevented it from either being produced or being aired, but it’s unclear who that would be (TVC Deportes or someone else?) It reads like it’s an issue with this specific episode and not that the show is pulled or anything.

Yesterday, CMLL announced Princesa Blanca would defend her Mexican National Women’s Championship versus Dalis last Monday in Arena Puebla. Today, CMLL announced Princesa Blanca and Lady Apache would meet in a hair match on a week from Tuesday in Guadalajara. Those two matches in close succession sure seem to indicate Blanca’s going away for a while (but maybe should be receiving some congratulations.) CMLL did previously announce Blanca would be on the 05/13 REINA anniversary show, so either those plans are changing or something else is going on here.

For her part, Princesa Blanca says she’s not especially worried about Dalys and Lady Apache shouldn’t get her hopes up about Blanca losing her hair.

AULL has added this match to Sunday’s show
6) Chucho el Roto, Robin Maravilla, Yakuza vs Dirty White Boy, Pablo Marquez, the American Assasin
Dirty White Boy????

Rob has highlights 02/13/12 AAA.

4) Mr. Águila, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas vs Diamante Azul, Hijo del Fantasma, Máscara Dorada
5) Marco Corleone vs Último Guerrero

By “Diamante Azul will debut at Dos Leyendas”, they meant “Diamante Azul will debut at a random Guadalajara show.”

The Blanca/Apache hair match is already announced for 03/06.
