Other News

Ras de Lona had Ultimo Guerrero, Shocker, Mr. Niebla, Volador all talking about their feuds with Atlantis. Shocker’s still upset about Atlantis stealing Delta & Maya away from him. Second most amusing part of the show was them talking about UG’s trip to NJPW – JCR doing the “otra nivel” catchphrase as we’re shown UG laying on the mat, obviously having just been beaten.

Most amusing part of the show was Mima asking for Mexican men who’d be interested in dating her to email in (luchas@mvs.com), and then talking Ayumi and Ray into the same deal. This was part of an interview with the entire Japanese contigent; Lyger was asked about his son, who has says is a fan of wrestling but not going to be a wrestler. Lyger says he too is a fan of lucha libre, but not actually wrestling – he likes to watch matches like Silueta vs Ray. This segment ended with Lyger dancing again. He’s the best.

Also on the show, Amapola  counted off all her defenses

  • 3 vs Lady Apache
  • 1 vs Princesa Blanca (in Panama)
  • 1 vs Luna Magica
  • 1 vs Lluvia (“un excelente lucha, Lluvia! [WINK]“)
  • vs Dark Angel at Arena  Coliseo
  • vs Estrelltia at Arena Mexico
  • vs Marcela
which somehow gets her to 26.

Daga says he’s depressed about all the losses he took on the last IWL tour, which is why he’s giving up their Junior belt and considering stepping away from lucha libre for right now. He will be on the 10/22 show and discuss it with IWL then. It does occur to me now that IWL has one singles champion and ran five shows, and he never got around to defending his belt on any of those shows. Might have made him feel better.

Angel de Plata will be out a couple weeks with a leg injury.

El Hijo del Santo opened an art exhibit (including his own paintings, of course) to celebrate his 29th anniversary of lucha libre. Santo noted a lot of his fans there were around his same age, which is actually quite the problem him for right now. Regardless, Hijo del Santo says 2012 will be a big year for Santo & Hijo del Santo.

Guerrero Maya, Delta, Dragon Lee, and Horus visited the elderly. Probably a good sign that Dragon Lee is OK.

The 11/01 Arena Aficion show has a intergender ruleta de la muerte. I think the person who appears to be a character from a Disney movie will lose. Io Shirai & Nosawa are in to wrestle on the ex-WWE tour coming up as well.

LuchaWorld has Ras de Lona from two weeks ago.

Lucha Libre in Japan

10/22: 6) {G1 tAG} Tetsuya Naito [O] & Tomoaki Honma b Strong Man & Tama Tonga [X]

Strong Man hasn’t been in CMLL since the end of July. His team starts the tournament 0-1 and is really no threat of winning.

CMLL (FRI) 10/28/2011 Arena Mexico

2) Ángel Azteca, Ángel de Plata, Pegasso vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Loco Max, Skándalo

Main event rematch, semimain builds off last week, and they’ve done that title match a time or two. Would expect this week’s main event to set up a title match next week.

I have a feeling Rey Cometa is hurt and Pegasso is taking his matches, because the opposite happened when Pegasso was hurt (and CMLL never really mentioned it for many weeks.) Hope I’m wrong.
