quick links, Japan notes, and lineups

No news besides Rey de Reyes. Full IWRG results have not turned up.

Rob has highlights of Guerra de Titanes 2011.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.


Lucha Libre in Japan

(via purolove.com)

03/17: Super Crazy (O) & Ricky Marvin b Lance Bravado (X), Harlem Bravado
03/18: Kotaro Suzuki (O) & Atsushi Aoki b Super Crazy & Ricky Marvin (X) [GHC JR]

Champs retain. Ricky Marvin taking the pin probably means Super Crazy is back at some point.

03/13: Takao Omori (O), Manabu Soya, Kaz Hayashi b Ozz, Cuervo (X), Robin
03/17: Ozz (O), Cuervo, Ronin b Takao Omori, Manabu Soya (X), Jun Izumimda
03/18: Takao Omori, Manabu Soya (O), Jun Izumida b Ozz, Cuervo (X), Ronin


AAA (MON) 03/19/2012 Arena Cuatro Caminos de Nuevo Laredo
1) ? vs ??
2) Keira, La Vaquerita, Street Boy vs ???, Black Mamba, Dashirui
3) Angel del Misterio, Barbaro, Dead Clown vs Kendor, Pitbull, Rió Bravo II
4) Aerostar, Fenix, Laredo Kid vs Hombre Sin Miedo, Rio Bravo I, Sobredosis
5) Héctor Garza, Perros del Mal Surprise #1, Perros del Mal Surprise #2 vs Máscara Año 2000, Texano, Toscano

Notable because there aren’t many Perros del Mal members left. Peligro & Pesadilla headed to Nuevo Laredo? Ek Balam? Mr. Agulita?

CMLL (SUN) 03/25/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Meteoro vs Relampago Azul
2) El Divino & Esfinge vs Metalik & Sádico
3) Gallo, León Blanco, Smaker vs Barbaro Cavernario, Espectrum, Exterminador
4) Solar I vs Negro Navarro [MAESTRO]
5) Hijo del Fantasma & Rush vs Felino & Mr. Niebla

That’s interesting. (Not that main event.)

Guadalajara has operating under different rules since Apolo Dantes took back over, and Santo & Navarro have worked not just on the same shows as CMLL wrestlers, but the same matches despite also working with Santo. The much hyped Santo veto has had been weaker this past year. Still, Solar & Navarro working in a CMLL arena 6 days before they do the same match on Santo’s own show is weird. I think this points more to Apolo Dantes being able to do whatever he wants in Guadalajara than any big change on Santo’s status, but it’ll be interesting to see how far he can go with this.

CMLL (SUN) 03/25/2012 Arena Coliseo
1) Camaleón & Höruz vs Apocalipsis & Ramstein
2) Ángel Azteca Jr., Hombre Bala Jr., Pegasso vs Bronco, Hooligan, Nitro
3) Dalis la Caribeña, Dark Angel, Lady Apache vs La Comandante, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sugheit
4) Blue Panther, Máximo, Super Porky vs Ephesto, Terrible, Vangelis
5) Máscara Dorada, Prince Devitt, Shocker vs Averno, Último Guerrero, Volador Jr.

Devitt & Voaldor again. And Ultimo Guerrero.

  1. Lucha Libre on KWHY? That station is owned and operated by NBC/Telemundo. WWE can grieve this and win.

  2. Boy did I misread that note about Xtreme Girl.

    ??? PDM’s could be Head Hunter and a local dude. Semi-main looks awesome.

    Man those Sunday GDL undercarders just keep changing every week. Wonder if he’s just using guys with talent or just giving work to his friends/trainees.

    Really hope CMLL isn’t doing Devitt vs Guerrero. I would think Guerrero wants to be recognized as a heavyweight and not a junior since when he goes to Japan he’s not treated as one.
