Mistico II debut match still unknown, Devitt vs Voaldor

CMLL has only put up a placeholder card for next week with wrestlers scheduled to appear – Mistico, Atlantis, Shocker, Sombra, Mr. Niebla, Ultimo Guerrero, Valiente, Angel de Oro, Mephisto, Diamante Azul – but no matches. I presume the problem is last night’s show being canceled. CMLL luchadores are promised a certain amount of matches a month (varies per luchador) and they may be reworking things to make up matches for the people who didn’t get to work last night.  They could’ve just paid the guys for the show that got canceled, but CMLL is cheap.

Based on the names listed, my bet for the Mistico debut is Mistico, Angel de Oro (is this irony?), Valiente vs Mephisto and two rudos to be determined.

Volador and Prince Devitt signed contracts for their match tomorrow, which will happen sometime past 11pm CT tonight for us. You can watch the press conference on YouTube (NJPW uploads their press conferences, hint hint), starting at the  10:30 mark. Devitt was respectful, Volador was Volador: Devitt just got lucky, and he’s just been borrowing the NWA Middleweight Title for the moment. Volador noted CMLL is a 77 year promotion, while NJPW is only 40 years, so of course the title match from CMLL should be in the main event. Devitt hopes to win and challenge for the IWGP belt next.

I’m thinking Volador is wearing his Captain America outfit, and I honestly believe he’s winning this. Feel free to mock me in the comments.

6) Máscara Año 2000 Jr. b Dr. Wagner Jr. [super libre]
Los Mascaras came out to guarantee victory at TripleMania earlier, which led to a pull apart. This was made a no DQ match, so it was completely legal for Mascara to smack Wagner with a bottle for the win. Consejo beat Wagner bloody until the Clowns made the save.

Air Date: 08/05, 08/12

There was also one dark match, based on the pictures. Lucha Libre Queretaro posted a photo of a barely occupied arena at some point during the show, but it looked like it was maybe a little more than half full in main event pictures. The mask match aspect of Wagner/Mascara might turn out to be a draw, but the feud itself does not seem to mean anything.

The bottle angle in the main event is a playoff a similar bit with Mascara Ano 2000 Sr. and Perro Aguayo Sr. back in 1995. Dr. Wagner Jr. is not a WON subscriber.

Not a lot more going on here, just the usual bit of keeping the rudo strong until whenever. I suspect we’ll be able to identify the Inferno Rockers once we see that match (if not sooner), but I’ve got them set up as separate people for the moment.

Next stop is TripleMania.
