01/16: Puebla, Halcon


CMLL (MON) 01/15 Arena Puebla Results [hugo999 @ box y lucha]
1) Fenix, King Jaguar b Espiritu Maligno, Mr. Rafaga
2) Asturiano, Lestat, the Tiger b Fuerza Chicana, Furia Chicana, Siki Osama
3) Mascara Purpura, Stuka Jr., Texano Jr. b Loco Max, Maniacop, Nitro
4) Mistico, Negro Casas, Ultimo Dragon, Volador Jr. b Averno, Efesto, Mephisto, Nitro
5) Shocker b Ultimo Guerrero

Sounds like the main event finish played off the previous ones.

AAA (SUN) 01/14 Plaza de Toros San Roque de Tuxtla, Gutierrez Results [El Heraldo de Chipas]
1) Charly Galan, Dr. Electro b Ying Yang, Tarot Magico II
2) Alebrije & Cuije b Monsther & Chucky [AAA MASCOT TAG]
3) Tarot Magico DQ b El Macho [mask]
4) Gronda II, Octagon b Scorpio Jr., Pirata Morgan

El Macho is Alfredo Vazques, from Estado de Mexico, and he’s been wrestling 20 years. He lost his mask by accidentally hitting the referee. That sucks.

Noticias de Oaxaca has a profile on Los Misioneros de Oaxaca.

Halcon #84 features an interview with Sangre Azteca (happy with 2006 but wants better in 2007), an interview with the Kamoa family, q&a with [Mini] Fantasy (who mentions he beat someone named Victorioso for his mask in Oaxaca) and a bio of Circulo Rojo (former wrestler now trainer).

01/15: Coliseo, Neza, Merida, Warner


CMLL (SUN) 01/14 Arena Coliseo Results [cmll, ova]
1) Bracito de Oro, Mini Olimpico b Mini Mr. Aguila, Sombrita
2) Flash, Sensei, Super Nova b Artillero, Super Comando, Zayco
3) Dr. X, Hooligan, Mr. Mexico b Mascara Purpura, Tony Rivera, Virus
4) Lizmark, Mictlan, Satanico DQ Emilio Charles Jr., Okumura, Pierroth
5) Dr. Wagner Jr., Mistico, Volador Jr. b Averno, Mephisto, Universo 2000

I think you know the main event finish. Semimain saw the first two falls go to count outs, and Pierroth fake a foul in the third fall but get caught. Please don’t let that match make TV, thanks.

On the same day, Averno beat Mistico in Arena Neza to retain the CMLL Middleweight Championship. They’ve been pushing Los Rayo Tapatios strong as a local tag team there since CMLL took it back over (again.)

Reyes del Ring (SUN) 01/14 Poliforum Zamna de Merida Results [el halcon]
1) Estrella de Fuego, Misterio Maya b Fuego Infernal, Haragan
2) Halcon Rojo, Halcon Rojo Jr., Lobo Salvaje b Amenaza Roja, Angelito Vengador, Cobra Man
3) El Fantasma, Linda Warrior b El Hijo de Hanibal, Linda Star
4) Villano III, Villano IV b Groon XXX, Hijo del Solitario
5) Hijo del Santo, Latin Lover b Blue Demon Jr., Shocker

Villano III and Hijo del Solitario agreed to a hair/mask match, but we’ll see if it happens.

Warner and CMLL are working together to produce some CMLL cartoons and comics, feature guys like Los Perros, Mistico, and the Guerreros. They’ll start appearing in March, and they say you’ll be able to buy them over the internet. (Esto)

Mundo De Hoy has a preview of the CMLL VIP show this Saturday and an interview with the promoters. They’ve got the familiar story of wanting to be luchadores, training and their parents not liking the idea, but the unfamiliar twist of actually listening to their parents.

- Luchas 2000 #351 has Perro Aguayo Jr.
- Super Luchas #195 has an interview with Nicho

01/13: Accion

CMLL: Perros vs tecnicos from Arena Mexico. Lots of Perros highlights. Perro’s filming Hector with a camera when Wagner launches off the ramp onto Wagner, and then that starts the comebacks. Garza pulls the mask and ditches it, and Perro pins him for the win.

AAA: Parka, Gronda, Octagon vs Cibernetico, Chessman, Charly Manson from the last taping of ’06. Seems like the same match they were doing before the Hellbrothers became tecnicos, except the Hell Brothers are actually going to win before the Sect runs out and beats them up.

Did La Parka Jr. get suspended on TV? I’m not quite following the thread on Box Y Lucha, but it sounds like he got suspended for “one week” (one episode of TV, or it’s long been over since this episode was taped weeks ago.)

My TiVo is acting very strange today, so it may be a while before I can get to reviews and/or recover from the pain of it not taping the season premiere of 24. Yay for pirated video on the internet.

01/13 (2): TV Roundup

Guerreros del Ring aired:
01/05 Mexico: Lady Apache, Marcela, Sahori b Amapola, Hiroka, Mima Shimoda
01/07 Coliseo Alex Koslov, Averno, Mephisto b Felino, Sagrado, Volador Jr.
Unmasked: Paris, who is…wait, I don’t know! Hmmmmmmm.

AAA on Gala aired:
Best of, part one.

I watched about three minutes, and then I started fast fowarding and picking thru the whole thing. I love it, because they do all the standups at the AAA Year End Party, and you’ve got guys in gimmick wandering around behind the announcers – the Scarecrows in suits, just hanging out, is worth the price of admission alone. Good fun for a recap show, it seemed.

Box Y Lucha changed their website a little bit, and uploaded a ton of articles. I’ll cover it sometime this week, but I wanted to mention it’s out there.

01/13: Mexico

Konnan had his hip operation. (RFC.) He still needs a kidney, but dialysis must’ve made it safe enough to do the surgery.

CMLL (TUE) 01/09 Arena Coliseo Results
1) Espiritu Maligno, Karissma b Carrona, Cobalto
2) Apocalipsis, Caligula, Ramstein b Danger, Molotov, Starman
3) Luna Magica, Marcela, Sahori b Amapola, Medussa, Rosa Negra
4) Felino, Satanico, Virus DQ Canek Jr., Okumura, Pierroth
5) Mascara Ano 2000, Ultimo Guerrero, Universo 2000 DQ Heavy Metal, Lizmark Jr., Shocker DQ

Ovaciones mention that Valiente is looking for any help he can in finding his eight year old daughter, who’s been missing since 12/23.

Pierroth fouled Satanico to end the semimain. Ultimo pulled off his mask and tossed it to Shocker, who got caught with it for the main event DQ.

CMLL (FRI) 01/12 Arena Mexico Results [ova, Alvin @ el martinete]
1) Sombra de Plata, Super Nova b Polvora, Vaquero
2) Fabian el Gitano, Leono, Texano Jr. b Arkangel, Loco Max, Nitro
3) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto b Blue Panther, Negro Casas, Sagrado
4) Alex Koslov, Sangre Azteca, Ultimo Guerrero DQ La Mascara, Shocker, Volador Jr.
5) Hector Garza, Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Mr. Aguila b Dr. Wagner Jr., Heavy Metal, Rey Bucanero

In the semimain, Ultimo took off his mask, threw at Shocker, who got caught with it. Ever get that deja vu feeling? Ultimo also beat up Ke Monito, who was here with Shocker. In the main event, Dr. Wagner was left “maskless, fouled, and on his back”, so it was a good night for the Perros.

IWRG (SUN) 01/07 Arena Naucalpan Results [The Gladiatores]
1) King Puma b Diablo Jr.
2) Bacteria, Halcon Salvaje b Trauma I, Trauma II
3) Freelance, Suicida, Turbo b Supremo Jr., Avisman, Black Thunder

5) Electroshock, Mascara Sagrada, Negro Navarro b Canek, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., Okumura

01/12: AAA, Sangre Azteca, Puebla, Mexico

AAA’s updated their news section with a long article about the new stars of 2006. They say they plan to go to Central America, the US, and possibly even Spain in ’07. Nothing about future TV tapings past the next one.

Ovaciones interviewed Sangre Azteca, who hopes to make his welterweight title reign as strong as the ones of Santo and Blue Demon. Good luck on that. He hopes to continue to feuding with La Mascara, Texano Jr., Sagrado, Maximo, Shocker, and Satanico; that’s a lot of people to fight. This is all hype for his semi-main appearance tonight, so it’s kinda funny he doesn’t mention Volador Jr. since he’s facing him tonight – I mean, why stop naming names?

CMLL (MON) 01/15 Arena Puebla Lineup
1) King Jaguar, Fenix vs Mr. Rafaga, Espiritu Maligno
2) the Tiger, Lestat, Asturiano vs Siki Osama, Fuerza Chicana, Furia Chicana
3) Mascara Purpura, Texano Jr., Stuka Jr. vs Loco Max, Maniacop, Nitro
4) Mistico, Negro Casas, Volador Jr., Ultimo Dragon vs Averno, Mephisto, Efesto, Tarzan Boy
5) Ultimo Guerrero vs Shocker

That seems like a loaded up card for Puebla. Is the AAA taping (on Saturday) close enough where they’re competing here?

El Sol De Tulancingo has a story about the local lucha scene – there isn’t one, there’s no promotions, though somehow there are schools. But they’re hoping for better.

Guerreros del Ring Special #5 is on Atlantis.

Here’s tonight’s Arena Mexico card:

CMLL (FRI) 01/12 Arena Mexico
1) Sombra de Plata & Super Nova vs Polvora & Vaquero
2) Fabian el Gitano, Leono, Texano Jr. vs Arkangel, Loco Max, Nitro
3) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto vs Blue Panther, Negro Casas, Sagrado
4) La Mascara, Shocker, Volador Jr. vs Alex Koslov, Sangre Azteca, Ultimo Guerrero
5) Dr. Wagner Jr., Heavy Metal, Rey Bucanero vs Hector Garza, Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Mr. Aguila

Fake storylines for this show
- Main Event is a sorta-#1 contenders match for two factions (Perros/tecnicos), since they’ve both been challenging the Guerreros in non-title matches
- Semimain is continuation of La Mascara/Sangre, and it’s the Alex/Sangre brotherhood. Also, they should be plugging Ultimo/Shocker in Puebla.
- I can’t think of anything to make up about the tercera. Negro vs Averno? Tag titles? Efesto? No, it’s just there
- Segunda is match 230 in the best of 433 series between these two sides.
- opener is just to get Super Nova on the show.

There shall be no Guerreros del Ring notes tomorrow morning (maybe Sunday?), but I may get Arena Mexico results up.

In La Presna, Perro Aguayo Jr. warns all rivals of the Perros to mentally prepare themselves for defeat, so they won’t be so anguished about it when it happens. He’s looking out for you.

Adolfo Moreno, guy in charge of Oregon, has written a book about his life in lucha libre.

Slam has an interview with Mando Guerrero.

01/12-14 Lucha Times

AAA: If I’m following everything right (and it took me like three weeks to smarten up), this is the first Best Of week. It’ll be the first time Billy Boy/Gran Apache has aired on Gala (they skipped that episode), though I think it’s clipped. Normal times.

GdR: I’m so thankful to see the women, mostly because they won’t be Fabian el Gitano. If they are, I’ll be mighty confused.

FSE (mexico only): The Coliseo semi-main, if it airs here, sounds like it should be ten minutes of good fun.

AAA Mexico: Here, they’re back with the post-GdT (for the first time), if I’m paying attention correctly. The Puebla taping airs next week.

CMLL Mexico: Top 3?

01/10: nothing much

Ovaciones has an interview with Perro Aguayo Jr., who promises to keep defeating the idols of CMLL. Everyone’s been gunning for him since he came in (and still now that he considers himself an independent), and he’s willing to take anyone on in a stakes match.

Lufisto, who’s wrestled in the Monterrey area, has announced her (probable) retirement due to a back injury.

El Heraldo de Chiapas has a profile of Captian Furia and El Mexicano, tag team champions of the South Texas (and local Rudo Tag Team of the year.)

Zocalo.com has an bio piece on the Panterita of Monclova

These have been up for a while, but I haven’t pointed them out before – CMLL’s put up bios of Atlantis, Black Warrior, Blue Panther, Damian 666, Dos Caras Jr., Dr. Wagner Jr., Felino, Heavy Metal, Hector Garza, Halloween, Mephisto, Mistico, Negro Casas, Olimpico, Rey Bucanero, Sagrado, Ultimo Guerrero, and Volador Jr.

AAA’s added new pictures to it’s bios for Brazo de Plata, Joe Lider, and Crazy Boy. They’ve also posted a preview of the next TV card, and that’s just mostly the lineup we’ve already seen.
