The big idea coming out of Friday’s show is Universo, having beat Halloween and Hector for their hair and having sent Damian to the hospital, is trying to pick off all the Perros on the way to Perro Jr. That leaves Terrible (who’s been missing a lot lately) and Mr. Aguila.
Blue Demon Jr. was robbed in Juarez. While he was sleeping, they snuck in and stole a laptop, phone, “personal medicines and documents” and 7000 pesos.
Sangre Azteca and Safari lost to Jushin Liger and Minoru on 12/04 in the second show of their NJPW tour. Liger got the pin on Sangre. (Puroresu Fan)
There’s a rumor that Universo and Mistico will get a tryout when SmackDown comes to Mexico next month. I’m sure some people will get a tryout, and I’d guess Mistico would be one (and it’d be a smart idea, especially if they’re using WWE rings, rather than do this on live TV), but that’s a bizarre combination. It sounds a lot more like who a CMLL fan would expect to be chosen (two of their top guys) than the guys WWE would typically go after (young, more visually impressive guys than Universo.)
That reminds me – Olimpico was jacked up to an unreal degree on the GdR show. He’s been getting into Hector’s luggage, I guess. It was an odd visual opener, because Mascara Ano has blond hair (not working for him in the slightest) and Tarzan Boy has apparently exchanged hair with Rey Bucanero (also not good.) If I figure out how to hook a VCR near my computer (peharps to it?), I’ll recap the wrestling (and not the fashion) this week.
Speaking of recaps: I finished #181 last night; Mistico vs Ultimo to you. I think I’m the last person in the lucha hemisphere to see this match, so I won’t go over what you already know (unless you read the recap, I guess), but I thought Perro vs Mistico was slightly better. I want to see both matches again, at any rate.
Was it Anth who posted the breakdown of that match on DVDMB? I never got around to reading it because I wanted to see the match, and now I think it’s gone in the last crash? If you still have it, you should post it to the wiki – that kind of stuff should be preserved.
What belt was Amapola wearing at the Arena Mexico show?
