Hi. Anyone notice tha tthey’re using Fuerza Guerrera’s mask on the CMLL main page now? Not that it means squat.
1 Mini Olimpico/Ultimo Dragonci/Tzuki DQW Pierrothito/Espectrito/Mini Violencia
(Espectrito ripped off Tzuki’s mask)
2 Guapos vs Guerreros Cibernetico: Olimpico wins.
– Tigre Metalico beat Nitro
– Sangre Azteca beat Tigre Metalico
– Loco Max beat Texano Jr.
– Olimpico beat Leono
– Dr. X beat Texano Jr.
– Alan Stone beat Sangre Azteca
– Misterioso II beat Dr. X
– Olimpico beat Alan Stone
– Olimpico beat Misterioso
(looks like a push for Olmpico)
3 Atlantis/Felino/Negro beat Tiger/Wagner/Mephisto
(Mephisto was strechered out after the first fall; no update on his situation)
4 LA Park/Mistico/Shocker beat Perro/Hector/Ultimo
(lots of UG/Shocker finishes)
5 Hijo del Santo (c) beat Averno to retain the WWA Welterweight Title
The Big News is, due to an AAA special, CMLL got all two hours of TV in Mexico, and got to air lots of this (good looking) show. It’ll air on US TV at the end of Decemeber, with these matches:
- Dr. Wagner/Terrible/Universo vs Shocker/Niebla/Panther [COLISEO - Wagner turning]
- Atlantis/Casas/Felino vs Wagner/Tiger/Mephisto [3rd only]
- Santo vs Averno
That’s a pretty good selection.
As a result of that Arena Coliseo match, this week’s Tuesday show was main evented by Shocker and Dr. Wagner facing Universo 2000 and Terrible. In the third fall, Terrible managed to give Shocker his own reinera to beat him, before being eliminated by Wagner. Wagner tried to tombstone Universo, but was prevented by the referee. Universo yanked the mask and rolled him up for the win.
It looks like Wagner is going to keep teaming with rudo-ish tecnicos, because this wasn’t built like the end of the issue. They’re hinting next week’s Tuesday’s show (or at some point down the line), there’s going to be a Universo (c) vs Wagner CMLL Heavyweight Title match. CMLL.com notes Wagner is UWA Heavyweight Champion (beat Canek) and WWC Heavyweight Champion (beat Pierroth – this one I didn’t know about, and not sure which WWC they mean), so he could pull of a Mexician Triple Crown.
This week’s Arena Mexico lineup
- Tigre Blanco/Neutron/StarMAN vs Hooligan/Ramstein/Super Comando
- Zumbido/Alan/Virus vs Mexico/Arkangel/Loco Max
- Rayo/Canek/Warrior vs Hector/Tarzan/Terrible
(it’s the trios champions teaming together)
- Cien Caras/Mascara Ano 200/Universo 2000 vs Pierroth/Hijo del Pierroth/Vampiro
(Mascara’s return from shoulder injury)
- Shocker/Niebla/Mistico vs Ultimo/Rey/Olimpico
(reward for winning the cibernetico)
I have this (totally baseless) feeling we’re building to a big Olimpico/Mistico match.
Tuesday was 11 years to day Oro (Jesus Hernandez Silva) died during a match in Arena Coliseo. Oro, described a lot as “a bigger Rey Mysterio Jr.” in terms of fantastic, tried taking a clothsline bump on his head, and it went horribly wrong. La Arena has a bio of his career.
