AAA has two TV tapings this week, starting tonight in Celaya. The card is in a weird place; it’ll air hours before Verano de Escandalo, but it’s mostly a lame duck show with that card not announced. As with all recent AAA TV tapings, the main event has mystery men listed on both sides. Averno is likely on the rudo side. Mistico/Sin Cara/whatever will likely make an appearance before the night is over, but it seems likely his first match will take place at Verano de Escandalo and someone else will be on the tecnico side tonight. The semifinal may reveal some future plans – Consejo gets yet another shot at Psycho Circus and trios championship. There’s a thought the Psycho Circus will lose the trios titles, to set up Psycho Clown being spun off onto his own and being replaced in the trio. Psycho Clown really doesn’t need to team regularly with his partners, because AAA doesn’t have frequent title defenses, but a new Psycho Circus ultimately winning the trios titles back would legitimize the new member. In the short term, Texano might get a win so it looks like he has a chance at Verano de Escandalo.
There are seven women in the Reina de Reinas title shot match, but there’s only six who care about winning it. Sexy Star explained she doesn’t care about getting a title shot, because she feels she’s still champion since she never lost. If someone wants to give her a direct title match, that’s fine, but she doesn’t feel she needs to earn one. Maybe she’ll help Taya instead?
Mistico/Sin Cara, Blue Demon Jr., Averno, Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Cibernetico, Villano IV, Psycho Circus, Daga and Chessman are being advertised for the 07/03 AAA TV taping in Xalapa.
CMLL has another edition of CMLL Informa today at 5pm on Terra with Volador Jr., La Sombra and Angel de Oro. Hopefully not Volador and Sombra at the same time, that won’t end well.
I recorded the debut RadioCMLL show for some reason. It’s about an hour (with two random breaks) talking with Rey Bucanero and Shocker.
R de Rudo writes about people critical of how Super Bolido’s dislocated elbow was treated it.
Arturo Beristain talks about training luchador and still giving advice after his students make the CMLL roster. Tanque Infernal, Luzebl Jr., Sucesor, Magnetico and Palomo Rouse are mentioned as training with him currently.
There’s a plan to spread the word of lucha libre by everyone wearing a mask on the Mexico City Metro on September 14.
Ricky Marvin wants the Veracruz government – and the governor himself – to give more support to lucha libre in his home state. This is just billed as Ricky Marvin, luchador, but I think he might be promoting shows as well.
Dralion vs Arez has been added to the 07/05 LuchaMania show.
Segunda Caida reviews Blue Panther, Marco Corleone, Negro Casas vs Atlantis, Mephisto, Toscano
Antrax is now training luchadors in Fresnillo, was the short lived Super Nova in Guadalajara?
Diamante Azul wants a heavyweight title shot and hopes to main event an Anniversary show.
Lucha Libre in Japan
06/04 NJPW: Ricochet b Mascara Dorada [BOSJ, match 5]
Mascara Dorada is 3-2, six points, actually tied for first, but he probably needed to get this one to advance. He’s got BUSHI tomorrow and Matt Jackson the day after to finish up.
