After winning the Welterweight Title, Satanico’s week went downhill:
Friday, the Infernales won their first round match in the Mexican National Trios Tournament, but were upset in the next match by Alan Stone, Zumbido and Super Crazy. (Those three move on to face Felino, Safari and Volador for the titles.)
Sunday, in the special four man cage match with hair on the line at Arena Coliseo (which was hyped as the first cage match ever in Arena Coliseo’s 60 year history), Satanico was the last man left in the cage. (Order of exit was Tarzan, Negro, before Mascara pinned Satanico.) Goodbye, hair.
And now there’s a small note that after the failure to get to Mexican Trios back, the Infernales are thinking about splitting up. Which would awfully suck.
Not much other stuff. Arkangel and Angel Azteca are wrestling against in a trios match on every single spot show they can manage this week; they seem to want to milk that completely before someone loses a mask. Aguayo and Atlantis are still feuding, with Aguayo pulling out the main event win this week.
There are rumors that Hijo de Lizmark has jumped to AAA. He’s scheduled twice on Arena Coliseo this week (Wednesday main event trios, Sunday vs Black Warrior) so it’ll become evident one way or another pretty soon.
Friday’s Arena Mexico card – (final celebration of the 70th annivesery)
Universo 2000 vs Pierroth [mask/hair]
(Universo wins this.)
Felino/Safari/Volador Jr. vs Super Crazy/Zumbido/Alan Stone
(Felino’s team, I think. Crazy doesn’t seem to be around that much, so I don’t see his side winning unless they have no plans for the title. Which is always possible.)
Angel Azteca vs Arkangel [mask/mask]
(Ark. My theory has been that Angel’s resurfaced to make some quick cash by dumping the mask, so I’ll stick with it.)
Vampiro/Super Parka/Atlantis/Shocker vs Aguayo/Wagner/Fuerza/Warrior
(This is Super Parka’s Arena Mexico debut, at least without a mask. Take his team, I guess. They’re calling this “relevos atomicos incredible”, but if you figure this is one of Shocker’s tecnico’s week, nothing strange is really going on.)
Havana Brothers vs Infernales
(Infernales? Havana’s are gone after next week.)
Tigre Blanco/Sicodelico Jr. vs Dr. X/Holligan
(Dr. X, why not.)
