1995 Coahuila/Durango lineups added to the luchadb

1995-08-15 AOL

I added 1995 lucha libre lineups, mostly from the cities Torreon and Gomez Palacio (and an increasing amount from elsewhere), to the luchadb database over the last week. They’re integrated the different pages of this site, and they’re also just available here. This is a slow continuing project to mine the El Siglo de Torreon archive for lucha lineups and results.

Events per year:

The show count is up a little bit. It didn’t seem like much going thru it: Arena Olimpico Laguna most weeks, everything else occasionally. Less shows mean less things going on. There is a Pimpinela/Rudy Reyna hair match. The match where locals Diamante, Brillante and Zafiro lose their hair in their home town gets lineups but not results.

Diabolico II apparently passes away after a dive on July 2nd. There’s nothing written about it at the time. He’s remembered on the July 13th show, and the implication is Diabolico II was hurt on the 2nd but didn’t pass away until some time later. There’s nothing about his death outside of the mention of the show honoring him; an incident with Tony Rodriguez in trouble for hitting a drunk fan. Rodriguez says it was self defense and demands better security.

A three way apuesta match in Saltillo with Latino, Demonio and Chavo ends with Latino losing his hair – only Latino doesn’t get shaved. A few days later, the commission insists he must if the promotion once to keep going. Everyone is only listed by one name, but I believe that’s the current Latino, the current Green Demon and the current Chavo Lomeli from Saltillo, forever in the same place.

Miguel Beltran takes over as Torreon box y lucha commission. Espanto II is among the people on the board. Beltran has promoted both sports. He’s going to make sure lucahdoras are in good shape and stop minors and people who don’t pass medical tests from being licensed. He’s going to stop medics from leaving shows early.
