CMLL (MON) 08/29/2011 Arena Puebla [Cinco Radio]
4) Histeria, Olímpico, Psicosis b Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Hijo del Fantasma
Bit of an upset.
5) Averno, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Último Guerrero b Atlantis, Héctor Garza, La Sombra
Ultimo Guerrero snuck in a foul on Atlantis. There were challenges for a singles match next week.
Puebla lineups have been showing up rather quick of late, but nothing here for next week yet.
Dorian Roldan announced Sting as the mystery star from the US that hadn’t been in the promotion before. He’ll work as a big name. We’ll probably have a better idea of where he fits in after the TV taping, but right now, it seems like Mesias is with Jarrett for the title, Zorro is with LA Park, Wagner seems with Perro, and Parka is still busy with the Bizarros. I don’t think Sting would be here to work with anyone below that level, so something’s being turned into a tag/trios/whatever match (which might help out by giving Sting someone he’d be more comfortable working with. I don’t know if Sting is a big deal to the Mexican audience, but there’s a better chance of it than Samoa Joe and Mr. Anderson, combined.
Felino is very upset at Rey Bucanero for turning his son Tiger against him. It’s not Bucanero’s fault, guys with “T” names just like to hang out with him lately. Felino and Bucanero have a singles match tonight.
At today’s NJPW, Jushin Liger did a post match promo saying his trip to Mexico might last five years, thirty years, or he may never return to Japan. I’m okay with all of this, even though he was clearly goofing around about the “indefinite” length of his trip.
Upon arriving in Mexico, Tanahashi was caught off guard by the recent CMLL changes; he expected to be facing Ultimo Guerrero to prove he’s the best heavyweight champion in Mexico, but now Garza has it. And Atlantis is tecnico, strange! Tanahashi also plans on winning the trios titles again while he’s here, noting he’s seen Sombra and Mascara Dorada in Japan (La Mascara’s trip has been forgotten – or hopefully rebooted out of existence.) After not really doing much with Naito or Nakamura, and with a lot of other things to take care, I wouldn’t expect much but random trios for Tanahashi on this trip.
Alberto del Rio, apparently stuck in Mexico clearing up visa issues, is killing time doing interviews. He says Mil Mascaras was in the front for his title win at SummerSlam, and it seems like you’re not allowed to bring up “Dos Caras Jr.” by name when talking about him interviews now. I wonder – actually more, I expect – if Hunico turns up as Sin Cara in October, the press people who’ve been writing about the situation so far will either stop doing bringing it up or stop being accredited to WWE events.
- Super Star, Armando Lopez, passed away last Friday.
- Atlantis says the classic lucha style is better, because he’s lasted 20 years without a surgery while extreme wrestlers have short careers.
- The Gladiatores talk to the new IWRG trios champions (including 5? belt champion X-Fly.)
- Cronicas Y Leyendas looks back at Pak Choo and Lou Thesz in Arena Mexico (receiving an award)
- Bajos Las Capuchas posts photos of the original Los Campeones Justicieros
- The definite reason to like Tiger.
CMLL (SUN) 09/04/2011 Arena Coliseo
1) Bengala & Enrique Vera Jr. vs Rayo Tapatío I & Rayo Tapatío II
2) Demus 3:16, Mascarita Dorada, Shockercito vs Astral, Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior [Relevos Increíbles]
3) Amapola vs Dark Angel, La Seductora, Lady Apache, Marcela, Dalys la Caribeña, Goya Kong, Lluvia, Princesa Blanca, Silueta [PWR WOMEN, #1 Contenders]
4) Black Warrior, Hijo del Fantasma, Toscano vs El Alebrije, Olímpico, Volador Jr.
5) La Sombra, Máximo, Shocker vs Hiroshi Tanahashi, Mr. Niebla, Texano
Princesa Sugeith is the current PWR champion, having won in from Lady Apache just before she went on maternity leave. She’s the obvious favorite to win it back in what looks like it might be a pretty good match.
Are they going somewhere with the minis? Is it odd to start a minis feud the week after you’ve done the big mini match for the year?
I guess Black Warrior is okay.
