CMLL to honor Rayo de Jalisco, Mistico reappears, DTU

Gonzalo Lòpez Peralt of Yahoo reports Rayo de Jalisco will be the wrestler honored as part of CMLL’s Dos Leyendas. CMLL hasn’t been always on the best of terms with Rayo de Jalisco Jr., but that’s the same way with everyone who used to work for them and Junior will likely appear at the show. Dos Leyendas always honors the promotion’s founder, Salvador Lutteroth and one of the past stars of the promotion. It was always Santo until the falling out with Hijo del Santo, and it’s been Perro Aguayo, Black Shadow, Cavernario Galindo, Ray Mendoza, Angel Blanco, and Bobby Bonales in past years. CMLL doesn’t have a publicized Hall of Fame, and this is their closest equivalent.

Odd situation with Mistico yesterday. He was pulled from tonight’s card in Guadalajara yesterday, leading some dope to believe he might be injured already, but Mistico was fine enough to wrestle Monday night in Puebla. Not sure why he is off the Guadalajara show; maybe he’s scheduled elsewhere we don’t know about yet. Shocker replaces him tonight.

CMLL hypes tonight’s card around Blue Panther vs Negro Casas and Metalico vs Bobby Zavala & Disturbio. Really, everything’s suddenly coming up Metalico. They even have a quote for Metalico, saying the two young rudos got lucky against Leono & Tigre Blanco but shouldn’t try him.

DTU has their show tonight in Arena Aficion. Main event is Ciclope & Perro Mocho vs Aeroboy & Violento Jack vs Drastick Boy & Pesadilla where there will be no mat/canvas in the ring, just the wood planks underneath. (Someone’s going thru the ring is the spot here.)

The FULL show in Spain with Tinieblas Jr., Mesias, Dr. Wagner Jr., Dark Angel show for March looked very unlikely has been canceled.  That link article believes the show will be instead take place in May.

El Luchador starts on MTV Tr3S in the US on March 10th. It looks like they’re starting with the first, Magnus-rific, season.

Terra has fall finishes of Sunday’s Arena Coliseo show, including the two matches which didn’t air. Herodes lands right on Oro Jr.’s head on a senton. I think it’s fair to bring up how Oro died every time one of the other Gen12 guys nearly kills Oro Jr., but they really could lay off it the rest of the time.

Tickets to the Ray Mendoza Jr. retirement show are on sale.

A luchador in Panama says Dalys la Caribena, Princesa Blanca and Negro Casas are wrestling there on 03/16.

Mesias, Blue Demon, Axxel, Octagon Jr., Laredo Kid and the Head Hunters are among those scheduled for the debut of the WWL promotion in Puerto Rico. Mesias, who remains a big deal in Puerto Rico and is probably the big draw here,  was working for WWC last month and this seems like an opposition group. Laredo Kid has been highlighted on their web TV show, and the promotion is teasing deals with AAA and TNA. Any promotion that is bringing in so many guys seems to be in danger of not making it past it’s first show (or at least not paying guys after their first show but then changing their name to run a second), but good luck to them.

Puebla will be holding another licensing exam on Sunday, with Virus, Black Tiger and Black Cuellar evaluating the luchadors. 25 luchadors have signed up to train, including one female wrestler (“Lady Amazona”, which sounds like the luchadora who’s already been wrestling in IWRG which is supposedly a commissioned promotion.)

LuchaWorld has KrisZ news update.

Rob has highlights of Volador Jr. vs Rey Escorpion.

CMLL (SUN) 02/24/2013 Arena Coliseo
1) Freesbe & Génesis vs Guerrero Negro Jr. & Ramstein
2) Hombre Bala Jr., Stigma, Super Halcón Jr. vs Artillero, Súper Comando, Taurus
3) Dalis la Caribeña, Dark Angel, Estrellita vs Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sugheit
4) Ángel de Oro vs Ephesto [lightning]
5) Fuego, Máximo, Stuka Jr. vs Namajague, Niebla Roja, Shigeo Okumura
6) Atlantis, La Sombra, Mistico vs Averno, Rey Escorpión, Volador Jr.

Mistico’s first Arena Coliseo match under that name. His last Dragon Lee match was here, where they had Niebla Roja destroy the mask for no particular reason seeing as it was never mentioned again. Mistico has largely worked outside shows on Sundays, but also some Arena Coliseo Guadalajara shows. Main could be very good.

It sure does look like Namajague & Okumura can get their title shot (maybe as soon as next week) if they can get a win this week.

I really don’t need to see Estrellita vs Amapola & Ladies del Polanco again. Interesting that both presumed Dos Leyendas matches are now on Sunday.

Probably skip the opener.

CMLL (SUN) 02/24/2013 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Azteca de Oro & El Hippie vs Acertijo & Demonio Rojo
2) Smaker vs Mr. Trueno
3) El Alteño & León Blanco vs Espectrum & Infierno
4) Leo vs Black Metal [OCCIDENTE WELTER]
Leo is champion, attempting first defense
5) Máscara Dorada & Super Porky vs Mr. Águila & Pólvora
6) Olímpico vs Shocker [OCCIDENTE HEAVY]
Olimpico is champion, attempting first defense

Occidente Heavyweight Championship is exactly the title Shocker should be holding at this point.

CMLL (MON) 02/25/2013 Arena Puebla
1) Asturiano, Black Tiger, Tigre Rojo Jr. vs Akron, Blue Center, Saurón
2) Metálico, Molotov, Pegasso vs Hijo del Signo, Hooligan, Taurus
3) Pequeño Olímpico vs Astral [CMLL MINI]
Pequeno Olimpico is champ, going for his third defense.
4) Ángel de Oro, Blue Panther, Máscara Dorada vs Black Warrior, Ephesto, Puma
5) La Sombra, Mistico, Thunder vs Kráneo, Olímpico, Psicosis

Sombra, Mistico, Thunder is some trio. I guess Thunder’s okay now? Well, feeling better, okay is debatable at best.

Olimpico has been champ for 3 years, and he’s only going to his third defense. (And he really should keep the title anyway.)

02/18 AAA TV Results (Irapuato)

AAA TV (MON) 02/18/2013 Lienzo Charro Ignacio León Ornelas, Irapuato [AAA (via R de Rudo)]
1) Argenis & Flamita b Argos & Último Gladiador
Astro de Plata was scheduled to wrestle, but could not due to his spinal injury. Flamita, who worked the unannounced opener last week, was the surprise replacement.
2) Atomic Boy, Fabi Apache, Pasion Kristal b Black Mamba, Gran Apache, Mari Apache
Moved down a spot. Atomic Boy and Gran Apache bled again.
3) Dinastía b Mini Psicosis [AAA MINI]
Moved up a spot. Mini Psicosis is champion. Drago and Psicosis, seconds and trainers, were involved frequently until Piero finally kicked them out. Dinastia got the win, becoming the fifth champion and the second QPPLC winner to win an AAA championship. Mini Psicosis fails on his second defense.
4) Drago, Fénix, Joe Lider b Daga, Halloween, Psicosis
Lider pinned Daga. Psicosis and Drago continued to feud, with Psicosis stapling a Perros del Mal shirt to Drago post match.
5) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown b Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Texano Jr., Toscano [AAA TRIOS]
El Consejo came in as champions. Mini Clown was with the Psycho Circus. Match was announced as no disqualification to set up the finish – Argenis ran out and gave a chair to Toscano, who hit Texano Jr. to give the Clowns the wins and the titles. Psycho Circus win the title for the second time, become the fourth champions. Consejo fall on their third defense. Toscano officially quit Consejo after the match.
6) Chessman & Parka Negra b El Mesías & LA Park
LA Park complained about the existence of Parka Negra before the match. Chessman snuck in a foul on LA Park to give Parka Negra the win.

Air Date:  03/02 & 03/09

No Rey de Reyes matches announced. There must be some skits taped that were not shown to the fans – and not mentioned in AAA’s own recap of the event – but there’s not strong in-ring hints of what the main event might be.  The semimain finish suggests Toscano might get the title shot, the fourth match may set up a multiman title match with everyone involved in that match, and it’s about time for Atomic Boy and Gran Apache to have their singles matches. There’s no hint of the Rey de Reyes tournament in the ring, though again maybe they’ve taped something to fill in the gap.

It does generally seem like there’s no big match here, not even on the level of Guerra de Titanes cage match. That didn’t draw well in Guadalajara, there’s nothing we’ve seen yet that seems like it’s going to do much better in Monterrey. (And if they had nothing special for Rey de Reyes, I’m still surprised they didn’t save the Dorian/Konnan firing as a stip for that show. But that’s a moot point.) This doesn’t seems like the build to a card that’s going in Arena Monterrey, this seems like one going to the much smaller Arena Coliseo Monterrey, though there’s probably something in the middle that’s much better than either.

The SLP card, which is taped on 03/02, should be announced soon. That may fill out the puzzle. This is just a more puzzling build up than usual. If the goal is to make it harder to figure out what the plans are, they are achieving that goal.

Flamita is a current DTU guy and a former CMLL trainee – with Arkangel & Franco Colombo – who was passed over for a debut in the Gen11 & Gen12 classes. He appears to be a lot better than most of them. Dinastia winning the minis title is great, and the Psycho Circus were overdo to win the trio titles back. The main event teases a LA Park/Chessman feud; they’ve never done that match before. It’d definitely be crazy.

Edit: AAA version of it’s recap differs slightly, mentioning Texano beat up the guys in the opener after their match, adn repeating his open challenge.
