Sangre Nueva, Fiebre Amarilla, Puebla lucha tryout results

Tonight is part 2 of the Sangre Nueva tournament. Participants are Super Halcon, Sensei, Robin, Genesis, Oro Jr. Disturbio, Zayco, Guerrero Negro, Taurus, and Inquisidor (though that preview leaves out Oro.) Winner faces Soberano, so a rudo would be more likely, and Disturbio or Taurus would figure to have the best chance. I am still rooting for Zayco for no good reason.

CMLL made two slight changes to this week’s lineups: Kraneo replaces Black Warrior tonight and Sangre Azteca replaces Olimpico on Sunday.

Fiebre Amarilla are thrilled to be Arena Coliseo Tag Team champions, despite the unfortunate belts.  Okumura says this is the beginning, and it’ll be no different when the opponents are Stuka & Rey Cometa. Namajague declared this the beginning of a new Japanese empire, which they’ll build on the ruin of the Azteca empire. That article notes Stuka & Fuego held the belts “over three years.” Five years is definitely over three.

56 luchadors tried out for licensing in Puebla, and 24 were accepted. That sounds like a real test! No names given, just test identification numbers. If you have the right number, you’ve got 20 days to get your medical tests submitted. If you failed, you can apply for a temporary permit and retry again for free in August. (Which doesn’t seem to say much for the meaning of tests.)

Ultimo Guerrero, Mascara Dorada, Angel de Oro, Dragon Rojo, Amapola and Marcela are headed to Ciudad Juarez next Saturday. Ultimo Guerrero seems booked out to spot shows far away from Mexico City every weekend lately.

CMLL Gaceta, which is giving away 2 tickets to next Friday’s show, has a quote from Stuka about being honored to wrestle in a big H2L match. The ending of the article suggests the final card will not be announced until next Friday.

Estrellas del Ring has a text interview with IWRG’s Seiya (from Puebla) and a video interview with Iron Fly.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

A conversation on Twitter Direct Messages earlier. (Read BOTTOM to TOP.)


(How weird is it that I talk to myself? Maybe I’m really Jhon Crazy.)

There are actually reasons to announce surprise luchadors: you may not know if they’re actually going to be there. My hunch is the first mystery person is a foreign guy to come in – a three way final of Jeff Jarrett vs Mesias vs LA Park would make a lot of sense –  but they may not be locked down. (If Jarrett IS locked down, they probably should be advertising it, but they didn’t in December either.) The second mystery guy looks like someone to fight Jack Evans, which seems like the return of Teddy Hart but you never know with that man.

Octagon Jr. is not on the card. Over on Samuray del Sol’s calendar, this date is now listed as

Lucha Libre Triple AAA (Rey de Reyes) “Octagon JR” (Not Comfirmed Programming Issues TBD)

I’m sad this hasn’t worked out. Either Heavy Metal or Octagon are probably in his spot.

AAA posted a video interview with Blue Demon, talking about his title match. I’d expect the Demon challenge bit to air this weekend, in some format.

Eight matches, when they’re only airing 2 (or a third heavily edited match) seems like it’s 3 weeks of national TV: one week of the 3 group matches, second week of the Fusion/Reina tournaments, and a third week of the Rey de Reyes final and the Texano/Demon title match. Even if the Demon title match was announced late as far as trying to build it on TV to sell tickets, it’s still going to be pushed for weeks on TV before it airs.

There’s no story really built to a climax here outside of the Demon/Texano match (and we’re making an assumption it’s a one match and done situation.) The two existing tournaments were set up by a tournament on a different show – a show never advertised or even acknowledged as existing on the AAA Sin Limite show, and maybe those matches are actually planned to only be aired on Fusion. The Clowns & Rockers have interacted this year, but are basically the same place we left them at Guerra de Titanes. The Rey de Reyes groups reflect ongoing feuds, which is often how they’re done, but everything is just killing time.

That’s not to say AAA hasn’t done anything the last few months.  The Roldans feud, and the end of La Sociedad, has been a slight focus of main Televisa show and a bigger part of the UTDN 2 hour version. It’s not really reflected at all in this card; not just in no match involving the Roldans, but that Konnan and Dorian were running things for the rudos but the rudos don’t seem that much worse off with their protectors gone. There had to be a reason they ran that big firing angle in a random taping in the middle of February, a stretch of time they weren’t really working on any stories, but that reason isn’t obvious yet. (Even the idea that they Dorian & Konnan were going to be busy with the US promotion doesn’t make sense, since both still appear to be at every taping.) Maybe there’s an explanation on this show.
