03/04: Ultimo Dragon @ Coliseo, Accion

UDG (SUN) 03/04 Arena Coliseo [Mostro_K-Bron @ Satanico's Mansion]
1) Bryan Lee, Kazuchika Okada, Toshiya Matsuzaki b Arkangel, Daisuke Hanakoa, Negro Navarro
2) Mima Shimoda & Sahori b La Nazi & Rosa Negra
3) Shocker b Chad Malenko [NWA IJH, torneo, qf]
4) Hirooki Goto b Veneno [NWA IJH, torneo, qf]
5) Alex Koslov b Pierroth Jr. [NWA IJH, qf, torneo]
6) Ultimo Dragon DDQ Tajiri [NWA IJH, torneo, qf]
7) Brazo de Oro, La Mascara, Loco Max b Hajime Ohara, Hiromi Horiguchi, Okumura
8) Shocker b Alex Koslov [NWA IJH, torneo, sf]
9) Hirooki Goto b Shocker [NWA IJH, torneo, final]

In their match, Tajiri blew mist at Dragon when he went for a top rope ‘rana, Dragon faked a foul, and the ref decided that was enough of that. This gave Goto a bye to the final, and while Shocker gave him a hard fight, Goto beat him to take the title. Goto becomes the 18th champion, and the first after a 22 year hiatus. I have no idea what (or WHO) is going with this belt.

There was an opener that the reviewer didn’t catch. La Mascara beat Ohara to win that match, so they might still be feuding, once every four months. I’m not completely sure which Pierroth that was, but I’m going with the name they’ve been using. Next big DF show for this group is May 12th, I believe – it doesn’t matter enough to go back and check.

ACCION

CMLL: Mistico vs Perro, what else? Mistico got busted one and his mask ripped apart in here, but railed to get in a dive and a La Mistica. Not as much shown of this match as I thought there might

AAA: Joe Lider, Crazy Boy, Psicosis vs Black Buffalo, Spider Nate Webb, Josh Raymond – Tim’s totally right, Josh Raymond gets wheel kicked in the face and that’s the end of Josh Raymond. Chessman helped drag Psicosis onto Black Buffalo for the pin, so there was likely some wackiness we didn’t otherwise see.

03/03 AAA TV Results

Updated on 03/07

These may be updated later in the week, after TripleA posts their version and I get corrections.

previous: 02/09, 02/16, 02/23

AAA TV (SAT) 03/03 Plaza de Toros La Concordia [El Volador @ Satanico's Mansion]
1) Estudiante, La Maravilla, Ray Richard b ?, ??, Rey Cobra
2) Fabi Apache, Gran Apache, Mini Charly Manson b Billy Boy, Mascarita Divina, Sexy Star
3) Alan Stone & Zumbido DRAW Pegasso & Super Fly [AAA TAG, torneo]
4) Alan & Decnnis b Escoria & Espíritu [AAA Tag, torneo]
5) Fuerza Guerrera, Pirata Morgan, Sangre Chicana b Crazy Boy, Joe Lider, Juventud Guerrera
6) Alberije, La Parka Jr., Laredo Kid, Latin Lover b Abismo Negro, Antifaz del Norte, Histeria, Mr. Niebla
7) Black Magic, Head Hunter I, Nicho b Charly Manson, Chessman, Cibernetico

Air Date (projected)
Mexico: 03/11
US: 03/31

Black Magic is Norman Smiley, back in Mexico for the first time in a while. If I remember the story right, the last time he wrestled in CMLL, Ovaciones ripped his performance apart, so I hope he was better here. Nicho and Konnan (in a wheel chair) both interfered in the main event, Konnan cracking a bottle over Cibernetico’s head near the start. Manson got put thru a table to set up the win. After the match, Prez Roldan threatened to suspend Nicho and deport Konnan, Cibernetico argued against it, and Kenzo Suzuki debuted, killing the Hell Brothers.

Nothing else much big on the rest of the show. There was more Apache drama in the non-local opener, and I believe Fabi and Billy refused to fight each other. I know Robert posted differently in a comment, but I read the results as Zumbido pinning Super Fly to win that tag match. I may be wrong.

UPDATED STANDINGS (chart)
P M
12 4 Crazy Boy & Joe Lider
12 4 Cuervo & Ozz
10 5 Alan Stone & Zumbido
10 5 Super Fly & Rey Cometa/Pegasso
6 5 Alan & Decnis
6 5 Espiritu & Scoria
3 2 Antifaz & Histeria
3 3 Alebrije & El Brazo
3 3 Charly Manson & Pirata Morgan
3 3 Chris Stone & Hator
3 3 Mascara Divina & Oriental
3 3 El Angel, Laredo Kid
3 3 Alliens, Gran Apache
3 3 Juventud Guerrera & Psicosis II
3 4 May Flowers, Pimpinela Escarlata
0 1 El Elegido & Intocable

No further tournament tag matches are scheduled, so is it a three way final? Do Stone and Zumbido get left out because they’ve had more matches? Dunno. If it was a draw, that’d eliminate both the Guapo and the Air Force team.

Next: 03/10, 03/18 (Rey de Reyes)

03/03: Mexico results, lineups, IWRG, GdR

CMLL (FRI) 03/02 Arena Mexico [ova]
1) Hooligan & Ramstein b Danger & Trueno
2) Leono, Metro II, Virus b Loco Max, Nitro, Okumura
3) Felino, Sagrado, Ultimo Dragon b Eclipse, Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca
4) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto b Heavy Metal, La Mascara, Volador Jr.
5) Alex Koslov, Marco Corleone, Rey Bucanero b Atlantis, Ultimo Guerrero, Universo 2000
6) Mistico b Perro Aguayo Jr.

Perro dominated the first fall, and was on his way to winning the second when he yanked off Mistico’s mask, getting DQed. Mistico got a new one, and rallied back, getting a pinfall when the ref was down, and later getting La Mistica for the win. Ovaciones says we could see the hair match at the Dos Leyendas show, March 30 – so they’ve pushed it back another week?

La Mascara and Eclipse got hurt in their matches. Ovaciones recap hinted they were going to try Marco/Universo again next week.

CMLL (FRI) 03/09 Arena Mexico Lineup
1) Valiente, Molotov vs Ramstein, Apocalipsis
2) Virus, Leono, Mictlan vs Okumura, Ohara, Dr. X
3) Blue Panther, La Mascara, Maximo vs Misterioso II, Ephesto, Sangre Azteca
4) Dos Caras Jr., Lizmark Jr., Volador JR. vs Atlantis, Ultimo Guerrero, Olimpico
5) Mistico, Rey Bucanero, Alex Koslov vs Black Warrior, Averno, Mephisto
6) Marco Corelone vs Universo 2000

Non title match. Make sure he’s got his plane ticket!

CMLL (TUE) 03/06 Arena Coliseo Lineup
1) Espiritu, Karisma vs Vaquero, Cobalto
2) Starman, Super Nova, Tiger Kid vs Polvora, Super Comando, Artillero
3) Tigre Blanco, Tigre Metalico, Tony Rivera vs Arkangel, Hooligan, Loco Max
4) La Mascara, Satanico, Sagrado vs Mascara Ano 2000, Pierroth, Emilio Charles Jr.
5) Dos Caras Jr., Heavy Metal, Lizmark Jr. vs Halloween, Damian 666, Mr. Aguila

That would be Kid Tigers’s Coliseo debut, I think.

CMLL (SUN) 03/11 Arena Coliseo Lineup
1) Danger, Truneo vs Messala, Caligula
2) Lady Apache, India Sioux, Luna Magica vs La Nazi, Rosa Negra, Medussa
3) Leono, Stuka Jr., Tony Rivera vs Arkangel, Mr. Mexico, Mogur
4) La Mascara, Mictlan, Ogun vs Pierroth, Hijo de Pierroth, Okumura
5) Marco Corleone, Dos Caras Jr., Alex Koslov vs Damian 666, Halloween, Mr. Aguila

They gotta be doing the hair match next week, right?

Super Crazy was visiting, here at Arena Mexico and on the IWRG show on Thursday. Speaking of…

IWRG (THU) 03/01 Arena Naucalpan
1) Comando Gama b Celestial
2) Ave Fenix & Kid Tiger b Bestial & Dr. Maldad
3) Aki, Fabian el Gitano, Yamato b Fantasma de la Opera, Trauma I, Trauma II
4) Black Terry, Kraneo, Zandokan b Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro, Suicida
5) El Dandy, Electroshock, Heavy Metal b Bestia Salvaje, Pierroth, Veneno

Semimain had rudos beat the trios champs in a non-title match, but they’re actually setting up a Black Terry/Cerebro Negro title match there. Third match was said to be particularly good, which must mean it was 83% awesome and 14% Fabian el Gitano.

on Guerreros del Ring:
unmasked: Mr. Aguila, who turns out to be Papi Chulo
02/25 Coliseo: Leono, Sagrado, Virus vs Arkangel, Mogur, Nitro
02/16 Mexico: Eclipse, Mascara Ano 2000, Universo 2000 vs Blue Panther, Lizmark Jr., Negro Casas
New bonus: a super annoying scroll on the bottom of the screen where people (and by people, we mean 12-15 year old kids) can text message comments (90% about Cena, Undertaker and Batista)

Either this week or next week is my last week of this, I think, unless I figure out something.

03/18 AAA TV Lineup (Rey de Reyes)

02/23 (results), 03/03 (lineup), 03/10 (lineup)

Let me be the last person to report this…

AAA’s confirmed who’s going to be in the Rey de Reyes match, and it matches the lineup that was circulating around, as does the main event, so I figure this is as much confirmation as we can expect to get that the lineup is correct, 16 days out.

Updated on 03/05: AAA Tag Tournament finalists are announced.

AAA TV (SUN) 03/18 El Toreo De Naucalpan [Mario Rivera @ box y lucha foro]
1) Mascaraita Sagrada, Octagoncito, Mascarita Divina vs Mini Abismo Negro, Mini Chessman, Mini Charly Manson
2) Crazy Boy & Joe Lider vs Joe Lider & Crazy Boy vs Super Fly & Pegasso vs Alan Stone & Zumbido [AAA TAG]
3) Billy Boy vs Apache [hair]
4) Super Porky, Zorro, Alebrije vs Antifaz, Histeria, Mr. Niebla
5) Abismo Negro vs Latin Lover vs La Parka Jr. vs Rhyno vs Octagon vs Fuerza Guerrera [Rey de Reyes]
6) Cibernetico, Chessman, Charly Manson vs Scott Steiner, Kenzo Suzuki, ?

AAA is/was trying to get Kurt Angle for that last main event spot, but the price for him is/was too high.

Rey Misterio Jr. is scheduled to appear in a non-wrestling capacity. WWE’s supposedly is aware that he’s going to be appearing on a show with TNA guys and is supposedly okay with this. I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Thinking about it now – if the Dark Family is facing the Mexican Powers before this show in a non-tournament match, obviously it ought to be Ozz & Cuervo as the other team in the tag final.

Now: Top four finishers move on. I guess I was right, with one of my five hundred guesses.

03/02: Mexico preview

The cartoon on the right, and many more, are works of kcidis. Check out his blog and

Not much today, so let’s just roll out the lineups:

CMLL (FRI) 03/02 Arena Mexico
1) Danger & Trueno vs Hooligan & Ramstein
2) Leono, Metro II, Virus vs Loco Max, Nitro, Okumura
3) Felino, Sagrado, Ultimo Dragon vs Eclipse, Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca
4) Heavy Metal, La Mascara, Volador Jr. vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
5) Alex Koslov, Marco Corleone, Rey Bucanero vs Atlantis, Ultimo Guerrero, Universo 2000
6) Perro Aguayo Jr. vs Mistico

CMLL Previews
La Presna
ESTO
– the Notimex one hasn’t turned up yet
– Ovaciones has one as well.

There’s not much new about Perro vs Mistico at this point. Marco is looking for a title shot against Universo still.

The hope is we find out a bit more about what’s going on with Mistico. We do know he made it to his tryout, before the WWE show. Mistico worked with Dean Malenko, and got postive reviews. Dave Meltzer, on Figure Four Daily, belived that even if Mistico signed, he wouldn’t start soon, and he wouldn’t appear on WWE TV for longer – they’d have him working off TV for a while, or even in one of their developmental groups. It was Meltzer’s guess that Mistico would go, but that was based on no inside information, just the idea of a 25 year old kid being wowed by a big crowd and better treatment than he’s getting in WWE.

If Perro/Mistico is blown off tonight, then I think he’s going. But since he doesn’t have to go right this second, they could continue out this feud to the 03/23 show even if he was going, so I think it’s much more likely that this reminds unclear for a bit while.

AAA tapes tomorrow.

ESTO also has an interview with Universo 2000. Universo has no plans to retire – he makes it a rule not to plan anything more than two months into the future – because people who retire seem to keep wrestling anyway.

Felino, Blue Panther, and Dos Caras Jr. spoke at a school children about the dangers of drugs. There’s no follow up comment I can make here that will not eventually get me killed, so let’s move on. Ovaciones has a short blurb about Rey and Atlantis talking to people about TB as well.

Quinta Estacion explains why they wanted Mistico in a video – lucha fans don’t normally listen to much Pop music, so they thought if they partnered with the top lucha libre star, they’d get attention from a whole new market. (And I’m sure Mistico and/or his people were thinking the same thing the other way.)

El Martiente’s wrestler of the month is Dark Angel

La Voz has an interview with the creators of lucha libre cartoon El Tigre, which premiers on Nickeloden this Saturday.

Filmeweb has an interview with Raúl Cuesta about his new short documentary – “Maximo”. Yea, that one. It sounds like it’s about how it’s like playing an exotico. The film is describe as “An intimate portrait of a Lucha Libre wrestler in Mexico who has developed a homosexual character in the ring, although he himself isn’t gay.” They got picked up by the San Diego Latin Film Festival – looks like it’ll air next Friday night.

03/03 Lucha Times

AAA: Cage match between the Hell Brothers and the Dark Family

not really sure what’s going on the satellite shows

CAN52: maybe they’ll continue showing the Leono stuff here? And then another opening match from Mexico?

FSE: and then semi and main event here? Who knows.

AAAMexico: Hell Brothers vs Vipers, 3 on 4

02/28: Monterrey, Tijuana, Neza

CMLL updated their site, but didn’t post Tuesday results yet. Ovaciones covers the Arena Mexico lineup change and has an interview with Super Muneco about the upcoming mask match.

indy (TUE) 02/27 Arena Coliseo Monterrey
1) Corazon Adicto & Hooolywood b Red Flamer & Sky
2) America Salvaje, Pancho Tequila, Vudu b Golden Boy, La Kalaka, Silver Star
3) La Bandida b Dulce Poly [FILL WOMEN]
4) Al Barone, Hijo de Solitario, Potro Jr. b Casasnova, Hijo de Anibal, Humberto Garza Jr.
5) Konan Big b Jorge Castro

indy (SUN) 03/04 Arena Coliseo Monterrey
1) La Furia & Marrullero vs La Pulga & Ricochet
2) Armagedon, Burrito, Rey Apostol vs Black Diamond, Gardenia Azteca, Rosa Salvae
3) Corazon Adictor, La Kalaka, Sky vs Difuno II, Difunto I, Ejecutor
4) Casasnova, Huracan Ramirez Jr., Silver Star vs Al Barone, La Sombra, Vudu
5) Axel, Black Draogn, Golden Boy vs Hijo de Espanto II, Pancho Tequila, Potro Jr.
6) Rayo de Jalisco vs Konnan Big, Hijo de Solitario, Hijo de Anibal [hair, mask, FILL HEAVY]

Okay, Konnan Big must’ve lost the match versus Rayo where Rayo put up the FILL Heavy and Konnan Big put up his hair, because Rayo’s been champ since. But if Konnan Big is putting up his hair here – that means he didn’t get shaved either, right? That wouldn’t be the first time for Konnan Big and this group.

I’d presume Rayo’s dropping the title back here and probably finishing up with this group soon. There’s some talk they might do a Rayo/Solitario mask match eventually, but no one’s losing their mask here.

There’s more about upcoming big shows here on lo mejor de lucha (scroll down to RFC’s 02/28 post.)

MORA (SAT) 02/24 Auditorio de Tijuana [El Halcon]

could’ve used this guy yesterday

Haven’t heard a Mistico update, so here’s something completely different:

Camaleon De Oro, trying to get Mexicans to register to vote, appears in Chihuahua while he’s there.

03/02 Arena Mexico lineup change

(poster via Alexis)

Mistico/Perro is added as the main event. Volador Jr. replaces Mistico in the semimain.

This would seem to indicate to me that the mask/hair match is set, but feel free to speculate what this means to Mistico, Perro, WWE, CMLL, and the price of tea in China, in the comments.
