At a press conference to talk about the upcoming AAA show at the Hard Rock Casino in Puerto Vallarta, AAA introduced Mistico/Sin Cara as a newly contracted AAA luchador under a new name: Myzteziz. He’s got a new outfit, which has a few elements of his old ones.
The name appears to be pronounced Miztiz, though we’ll be hearing it often to be sure. One easy way to remember how to spell the name: slam your head on your keyboard, and you’re there. It seems way too complicated, just ugly to the eye and one people are going to struggle to remember, but maybe they’ll get it over on TV.
AAA owns it in Mexico – check expediente numbers 1483972, 1483974, and 1483976, all filed back on 05/08 – but not yet in the US. Myzteziz said he’d still be using Mistico/Sin Cara on non-AAA shows, so he hasn’t really fixed his long term issue if he ends up falling out with AAA. Though he may have more problems than a name if he falls out with AAA.
(The Ring & Rock 2 show is happening July 4th thru July 6th. AAA tapes in Xalapa on 07/03, so the show is unlikely to be a taping this time around.)
IWRG (WED) 06/04/2014 Arena Naucalpan [The Gladiatores]
1) Black Angel (IWRG) & Fly Boricua b Black Niko & Voltar
Main shows debuts for all except Niko.
2) Matrix Jr. & Muerte Infernal b Aramis & Sky Ángel
Aramis’ debut. Muerte Infernal’s first match since 2011 (so it could be a new one.)
3) Anubis Black & Zurdog b Látigo & Metaleon
4) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro b Guerrero Mixtico, Hip Hop Man, Tony Rivera
5) Bombero Infernal, Canis Lupus, Fuerza Guerrera b Black Terry, Golden Magic, Relámpago
straight falls for the rudos, Fuerza catching Golden in a submission by surprise. Golden Magic, the champion, demanded Fuerza Guerrera face him in a title match.
Fuerza Guerrera blew off the idea of a title match in a post match interview, but did sound like he’d do a super libre one.
CMLL Informa had Angel de Oro, surly La Sombra and Volador Jr. on last night. Angel de Oro talked about his return, while Sombra and Volador each talked about Friday’s title match (though Sombra was more into getting over his new character.) The show ended with Mistico being brought out to repeat the message from the end of the last show – this is the real and only Mistico, and anyone else using that name is fake. It feels like watching a totalitarian regime try to change history, except if the regime had no power at all.

06/05 NJPW: BUSHI b Mascara Dorada [BOSJ, match 6]
Dorada drops to 3-3. He’s kind of alive – if there’s a big tie, he would be part of it – but he’s probably done. He’s got a match with Matt Jackson tomorrow to wrap up his block, and then will get in a tag match on the 8th.
