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.
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.

CMLL (TUE) 02/21/2012Arena 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. CMLL.com 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.
