El Occidental

Mistico won the CMLL World Welterweight Championship, defeating Mephisto on Tuesday in Arena Coliseo Guadalajara. Mistico is the 22nd champion. Mephisto had held the belt since Feburary 24, 2004.

El Occidental has the story, and a bloody victorious Mistico appears on today’s cover.

Mistico winning this belt substantially increases the chances he’ll lose the tag team titles on Friday. I do not believe he’ll have two belts for long, and I think it’s more of a matter of deciding if it makes sense for Perro and Aguila to have two belts (and probably do another title change with the tags or the trios), or if Negro/Mistico retain on Friday and drop them soon to someone else. Mistico did hold both the NWA Middleweight and the CMLL Tag Team titles for a few months last year, but CMLL has seems to avoid doing that sort of thing.

Mistico is a three belt champion at the moment – he also still the IWRG Super Welterweight Champion, though that belt is not known to been defended since just after it was created.

The only other result listed from the show is Dr. Wagner over Averno, which is odd because they weren’t originally on the card.

Update: CMLL mentions this in it’s news section.

It occurs to me that I have no idea if Arena Coliseo Guadalajara is still/back on the air, and which day they’re taping. Anyone know?
