Hector Garza, WWL, minis cage match

300 people attended a service for Hector Garza last night in Monterrey. Hator, Super Parka and Salsero talk about their experiences with Hector in that article. Info7 has another series of interview from the serviceLuchaMania Monterrey was sharing photos from them funereal.

There was a moment of applause for Hector at last night’s Arena Puebla show. In Japan, Titan won his BOSJ match with a Garza-like tornillo. (His next match is Thursday morning vs Liger.)

The Joker has a remembrance of Hector’s career.

The Puebla paper which has been posting Puebla results is having site issues today.

Rob has highlights of AAA Rey de Reyes 1997, CMLL 08/19/2005CMLL 02/26 & 03/02/2007 and CMLL 04/30/13.

Bill has highlights of this year’s FantasticaMania: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3

IWRG says they’ll have a FILL show on 06/18.

LyC has announced Sabu vs Tommy Dreamer for their 07/07 show with WWL.

Bio of the original Espanto Jr. As usual in Mexican versions of Espanto Jr.’s near death, it was all because of injuries in the ring and nothing else going on in his body.

There’s another boxing show on 06/29 in Arena Mexico.

Psico Kid, Angel del Misterio and Dave the Clown will be signing autographs.


CMLL (SUN) 06/02/2013 Arena Mexico
1) Metálico & Starman vs Disturbio & Hijo del Signo
2) Diamante, Hijo del Fantasma, Tritón vs Namajague, Shigeo Okumura, Virus
3) Atlantis, Diamante Azul, Rush vs Euforia, Shinsuke Nakamura, Último Guerrero
4) Negro Casas vs Máscara Dorada [NWA WELTER]
Negro Casas is champion, attempting for seventh defense
5) Fantasy vs Aéreo, Eléctrico, Demus 3:16, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Warrior, Pequeño Violencia, Bam Bam, Shockercito, Mercurio [cage, mask, hair]

All Negro Casas has done during his title reign is beaten young tecnicos, sometimes thru duplicitous means. Dorada fits that mold, but maybe he’ll be the one to figure it out. Match should be great.

Signo should just apologize and see if Metalico will leave him alone.

IWRG (SUN) 06/02/2013 Arena Naucalpan
1) Galaxie & Seiya vs Araña de Plata & Epidemia
2) Centvrión, Chico Che, Golden Magic vs Alan Extreme, Fulgor, Imposible
3) Black Terry, Dinamic Black, Trauma I vs Angel, Apolo Estrada Jr., Canis Lupus
4) Trauma II vs Carta Brava Jr.
5) Cien Caras & Hijo de Pirata Morgan vs Hijo de Máscara Año 2000 & Pirata Morgan [Relevos Increíbles]

Nothing on the line in the semimain, but that should be a good math. The whole undercard has promise. Black Terry was choking Dinamic Black with camera cord last week, will be teaming with him this week.

8) el Hijo del Perro Aguayo vs Cibernético [hair]

05/28 Update (2): AAA’s article on the press conference leads off with a photo of Wagner, Electroshock and Parka posing together, then says the trios match is Wagner, Electroshock and Octagon vs Villano IV, Mascara Ano 2000, and the previously unmentioned Universo 2000. I dunno! Wagner didn’t come back before TripleMania to not be on TripleMania, so something’s going to happen between now and the end of that show. There’s still the taping in Toluca on Thursday, where it looks like Wagner is teaming with Cibernetico & Mesias vs Villano IV, Perro Jr., and Canek.

05/28 Update: this should be the final lineup, except for one match no one’s sure of. Notes from the press conference

  • There’s no new details about the iPPV, only that there is iPPV. I didn’t see any mention of the movie theater deal. This will probably all be better explained when they start sending out the press release.
  • The TNA vs Psycho Circus trio was officially announced. The trios titles do not appear to be on the line.
  • Hugo was added as Mesias’ second and also reads like slightly rudo
  • Heavy Metal did not attend the press conference. Texano and Chessman agreed Heavy Metal was no good and they’ll just end up having the match. The AAA Mega Championship also did not attend the press conference.
  • A fair amount of people on the show were not on the press conference, actually. (There is a another press conference in Toluca for that show today.)
  • There was a momentary fake out involving Konnan putting Parka Negra on Villano IV’s team, but Wagner crashed the press conference to announce himself as the third man. Konnan and Wagner proceeded to argue, so it looks like Wagner might end up being a tecnico out of this; Wagner challenged Konnan to face him in the ring and said he wanted to be friends with Joaquin (who signed him for this match somehow.) It’s really unclear what match was actually made out of all of this, but I’ve got the one they seemed to announced.
  • people were shocked about Wagner returning and not being completely honest about leaving forever. LOL. I hope Wagner gets respected for the performance artist he is someday.
  • Mascara Ano 2000 manages to be on TripleMania two years in a row, unlike his son.
  • Blue Demon Jr. wanted Mesias to put his “Thundercats sword” on the line too, so Mesias asked for Demon to put his new title on the line too. Neither is happening.
  • They talked about Hector Garza and sent their condolences to his family. Perro Jr., in his now usual bad sounding voice, dedicated the match to Hector.  Both Cibernetico and Perro wanted no run-ins. Hahahaha.

No Atomic Boy and Apache – they don’t make the card in any fashion. No Canek either; perhaps the AAA vs indy trios will end up as Parka/Octagon/Electroshock/Wagner vs Villano IV/Mascara Ano 2000/Canek/Parka Negra.

The Atomicos was not mentioned at all. If AAA is doing a free preview show before TripleMania, it stands a chance of being moved to that show.

05/23 Update: Blue Demon vs Mesias official, but surprisingly for the Latin American championship.

This is only the card announced so far. Other matches strongly hinted at:

  • Los Villanos (or at least a Villano IV lead team) vs La Parka, Octagon and a partner TBA – announced, just not yet placed on TripleMania
  • Atomic Boy vs Gran Apache, mask vs hair – built towards, but uncertain if it’ll happen on this card
  • The backstory for the AAA vs Indy match, which has been explained on TV but not here, are the indy guys believe they are legend and AAA has no legends.

WWL’s Monster Pain has also been billed as appearing by WWL, and AAA has hinted at TNA involvement. Canek is part of the TV tapings leading up to the show, so he may be involved. Dr. Wagner Jr. would also be expected on the card if he’s indeed returning in the next week. TripleMania usually runs between 7 and 9 matches, which wouldn’t leave any room for anything not mentioned so far. AAA has been releasing a match a day this week every afternoon. AAA will also hold a press conference on Tuesday, and the full lineup should be announced then.

TripleMania will air on PPV, in movie theaters, and on worldwide iPPV. The costs for these, and method of iPPV, have not been discussed. TripleMania’s listed start time is 6:30 pm (Central Time), though the first half hour would likely be a pre-show and the PPV would start at the top of the hour. The length of the show is unknown. AAA blocked out four hours for the last TripleMania to be on PPV, which sounds about right for this show.

The show should not be expected to air as part of AAA’s regular TV. AAA is taping just a couple days before the show in Leon, which remove any need to use TripleMania on TV. You’ll probably have to pay to see this any time soon.

05/25-26 lucha videos

GDL appears off the air. Puebla feed was working on Thursday, but my recording was not. It was back down by Monday. I also thought I had Terra recording on Sunday. I was wrong. Still, for a week where I feel like I messed up a lot, we ended up with 53 videos and 13 hours of TV.

I’m not going to post both the 52MX and Terra versions of matches on YouTube – it was just confusing people – but I’ll have them both still listed here.
