02/20: 02/23 AAA TV Lineup, IWRG

Not much going on, so I’m going to roll two posts into one. The big story today is I don’t have to eat my hat!

AAA TV (FRI) 02/23 Auditorio Jose Maria Arteaga, Queretaro Lineup
1) Rey Cometa, Pimpinela Escarlta, Estrellita, Mascarita Divina vs Kaoma Jr., Polvo de Estrellas, Tiffany, Mini Charly Manson
2) Pirata Morgan, Charly Manson vs Alan Stone & Zumbido vs Cuervo & Ozz vs Alebrije & El Brazo [AAA TAG, torneo]
3) Joe Lider, Psicosis, Crazy Boy vs Nicho, Head Hunter I, Black Bufalo
4) Fuerza Guerrera, Pirata Morgan, Sangre Chicana vs Octagon, Intocable, Zorro
5) Cibernetico, Chessman, Charly Manson vs Abismo Negro, Mr. Niebla, Histeria, Antifaz

I’m going to guess the Pirata Morgan/Charly Manson tag team is replaced or something instead of having them work twice. I have no idea why the main event is listed as 4 vs 3. They didn’t actually list the Foreign Legion guys the Mexican Powers would face, but I’m guessing.

IWRG (SUN) 02/18 Arena Naucalpan Results
1) Mr. Randal b Volcan Negro
2) Antaris, Bacteria b Black Jaguar, Vampiro Metalico
3) Coco Blanco, Coco Rojo, Coco Verde b Dr. Cerebro, Estallido, Supremo Jr.
4) Avisman, Black Terry DQ Freelance, Suicida
5) Bestia Salvaje, Black Pentagon, Pierroth b Dr. Wagner Jr., Mascara Sagrada, Villano III

Villano III turned on Dr. Wagner in the main event, helping the rudos win. Freelance accidentally hit the referee in the third fall of his match, causing the DQ. Dr. Cerebro was a tecnico fill in on the rudo side, and of course that didn’t work. He and Supremo ended up fighting.

IWRG (SUN) 02/25 Arena Naucalpan
1) Mr. Randal vs Volcan Negro
2) Antaris, Kai, Yamato vs Black Jaguar, Black Stone, Vampiro Metalico
3) Coco Blanco, Coco Rojo, Coco Verde vs Macho II, Trauma I, Trauma II
4) Freelance vs Avisman [IWRG IC WELTER]
5) El Dandy, Negro Navarro, Villano III vs Bestia Salvaje, Black Pentagon, Nosawa

El Sudcaliforniano previews an AAA show featuring the Mexican Powers vs “los Biper Revolution”.

02/19: Coliseo, Tijuana, NJPW, Magazines

CMLL (SUN) 02/18 Arena Coliseo Results [ova, hugo999]
1) Bracito de Oro, Mini Olimpico b Fire, Sombrita
2) Super Nova, Tony Rivera, Valiente b Apocalipsis, Hooligan, Ramstein
3) Arkangel, Mogur, Nitro b Leono, Texano Jr., Virus
4) Blue Panther, La Mascara, Mictlan b Alex Koslov, Ephesto, Misterioso II
5) Atlantis, Olimpico, Ultimo Guerrero b Dos Caras Jr., Dr. Wagner Jr., Rey Bucanero

Dos went down in the main event, which doomed the tecnicos. Alex had a falling out with his partners, so he’s indeed going tecnico. Texano went down in the tercera, and Mogur fouled Leono to lead his team to victory before challenging for a hair match. Tony Rivera replaced Flash and got hurt. Three is an above average day.

el sol de Tabasco

Black Warrior and Mistico signed a lot of autographs while in Tabasco this weekend, and occasionally held up large banners. Didn’t see results for this show yet

CMLL PRI (SAT) 02/17 Plaza de la Unidad Results [El SOl de Toluca]
1) El Tigre, The Thing b Bengala, Damian el Inmortal
2) India Sioux, Marcela b Amapola, Hiroka
3) Destroyer, Emperador, Flecha DQ Estruendo, Skar, Sombra de Plata
4) Felino, Sagrado, Volador Jr. b Alex Koslov, Okumura, Veneno
5) Astro Boy, Mistico, Negro Casas b Averno, Hector Garza, Hijo del Perro Aguayo

I would attend political functions in the United States if they, like the PRI here, sponsored lucha libre battles. Anyway, the biggest news of the day is surely that Flecha and Sombra de Plata are feuding, if the report can be believed. Flecha faked a foul here. Astro Boy and Averno were added to the main event, and the finish was the finish you know and love.

indy (FRI) 02/16 Arena Queretaro Results [Knotty @ El Martinete
2) Dark Boy, Dark Crazy b Galaxy, Luminoso
3) Artillero, Super Comando DRAW Lince I, Lince II [LLQ TAG]
4) Batman, Robin b Blade, Perro del Ring
5) Huracan Ramirez, Huracan Ramirez Jr., Principe Valiente Jr. DQ Coco Blanco, Coco Rojo, Coco Verde
6) Electroshock, Hijo de Solitario b Pierroth Jr., Rambo

Tecnicos won when Solitario turned on Electroshock. I hate that – why should they get the win because they couldn’t get along? If you fight each other and cause the end of the match that way, you’re a loser. If I were Hijo de Pierroth or Rambo, I’d protest this to the commission.

indy (FRI) 02/16 Guaymas, Sonora Results [Contragolpe @ El Martinete]
1) Black Devil b Negrosino
2) Enfermero Jr. b Chacal
3) Sombra I, Sombra III b Azteca & Contragolpe
4) Cien Caras, Willy Cortez, Dr. Karonte b Super Halcon, Rey Centella Jr., Mastodonte

Why is Cien Caras doing random matches? ($$$?)

CMLL (SUN) 02/11 Arena Neza Results [The Gladiatores]
1) Chamaco Vadillo, Dark Devil b Ambar, Boaz
2) Mohicano I, Mohicano II DRAW Luis Cirio, Tony Cirio
3) Danger, Flash b Caligula, Messala
4) Rayo Tapatio I, Rayo Tapatio II, Satanico b Apocalipsis, Dr. X, Nitro
5) Felino, Mistico, Sagrado b Ramstein, Tarzan Boy, Ultimo Guerrero

La Mascara (Sagrado), Averno (Tarzan) and Mephisto (Ultimo) were all supposed to be in the main event. La Mistica on Ultimo. Flash did a 450 to win here, and the report didn’t note an arm injury here. Maybe another show the same day? Tough for him to be in Guadalajara the same day, unless my geography is way off. Ramstein is the (unofficial) Rey de Neza.

CMLL (SUN) 02/11 Colonia Aguil Azul, Neza Lineup [The Gladiatores]
1) Senky, Sculman, Can Star b Lobo Vikingo, Bestia Metalca, Sobredosis
2) Mini Olimpico, Ultimo Dragoncito b Mini Halloween, Mini Damian 666
3) La Nazi, Amapola, ? b Marcela, Sahori, Flor Metalica
4) Misterioso II, Okumura, Makabro DQ Fantasma, Hijo del Fantasma, Fantasma Jr.
5) Dos Caras Sr., Dr. Wagner Jr., Felino b Olimpico, Mascara Ano 2000, Tarzan Boy

BAJA STAR (SAT) 02/10 Auditorio de Tijuana Results [The Gladiatores]
0) Cazador, Rey Divino b Inmortal, Siniestro
1) Calavera, Clon b Duende, Kimura
2) Ricochet, Super Rhino b Angel Negro Jr., Pancho Cachondo
3) Extassis, Star Boy b Enfermero Jr., Pierroth Jr.
4) Hijo de Rey Misterio, Rey Misterio Sr., Super Astro DQ Mortiz, Principe Arandu, TJ Boy
5) LA Park, Latin Lover b Hector Garza, Super Parka

Latin’s apparently making his own schedule, which is how he ends up facing a CMLL guy while working on AAA TV.

AAA Villalobos (SAT) 02/10 Auditorio Local de La Magdalena Atlicpac Results [The Gladiatores]
1) Callejero, Perro Cibernetico b Angel del Metal, Super Destello
2) Mascara de Oro Y Plata, Super Mascara b Iluminado, King Demon
3) La Parkita, Mascarita Magnifica b Mini Charly Manson, Mini Cuervo
4) Demonio Cibernetico, Guerrero Negro, Johnny Villalobos b Laredo Kid, Nemesis AAA, Super Fly
5) Diabolica, Monster, Muerte del Diablo b Alebrije, Martha Villalobos, Zorro

There are also AULL results over on The Gladiatores, but author pretty much passed on giving results in the tag team tournament, as far as I could tell, and nothing much of note happened.

AAA Munoz (WED) 02/14 Auditorio Miguel Barragan de San Luis Potosi Results [El Sol de SLP]
3) Fabi Apache, Martha Villalobos b La Diabólica, Miss Janeth
4) Alberije, Billy Boy b Gran Apache, Monsther
5) Billy Boy, El Elegido, Zorro b Abismo Negro, Alan Stone, Cibernetico

Negro Casas and Texano are headed back to Japan next month, with Texano getting a title match against Minoru for the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship. This title match is out of nowhere, and I thought this was just a case of “Japan loves cowboys”, but no, there’s a ISSUE here

Minoru explained that when he went to Mexico around four years ago, he and Texano developed an unusual hatred for each other and that Texano tricked him when telling him directions and Minoru ended up in a taxi for about five hours. If he defeats Texano, he wants the young Mexican to pay him back the taxi fare.

(courtesy Strong Style Spirit)

So I guess Minoru has heat with Texano. How much is 5 hours of taxi fare in Mexico City? We may have to open up a collection box.

TV question: Did the Tag Title match air this weekend? Which match aired last weekend?

02/16 AAA TV Results

triplea.com

AAA TV (FRI) 02/16 Plaza de Toros de Uruapan, Michoacan Results
1) La Diabolica, Lola Gonzalez, Vicky Carranza DQ La Hechicera, Linda Star, Martha Villalobos
2) Pegasso, Super Fly b Espiritu, Scoria [AAA TAG, torneo]
3) Crazy Boy, Joe Lider b Alebrije, Brazo [AAA TAG, torneo]
4) El Dandy, Fuerza Guerrera, Pirata Morgan b Brazo de Plata Jr., Psicosis II, Tinieblas Jr.
5) Intocable, La Parka Jr., Octagon, Super Porky b Alan Stone, Hator, Scorpio Jr., Zumbido
6) Charly Manson, Chessman, Cibernetico b Black Bufalo, Head Hunter I, Nicho

You may be asking, “Who is Black Bufalo?” Well, he’s the guy in the middle in the picture, and that’s all I know. Glad I could help. (He’s working an AAA spot show w/Rossy vs Cinthia/Oriental this weekend, but I don’t have anything else by that name – new gimmick for someone?)

Main event was Legion dominated, with Ciber sneaking in a foul on Nicho and Chessman covering for the win. Semimain saw more Octagon/Fuerza stuff as they continue the tease. Juvi missed the show due to injuried suffered at the last TV taping.

The big news, of course, is the tag team tournament. Rey Cometa and Super Fly could’ve faced 13 teams they haven’t gone up against before, and they beat one of the three they had. They broke the tournament! Once I finally figured out what was going on, I shot off confetti in the CMLLBlog offices to celebrate this day.

MAYBE everyone faces everyone TWICE. So it’s 240 matches instead of 120, and this will go to 2009! I’ve reprogrammed the chart to allow multiple matches between teams, which was hard with the confetti all over my keyboard and such.

UPDATED STANDINGS (chart)
P M
12 4 Super Fly & Rey Cometa/Pegasso
12 4 Crazy Boy & Joe Lider
9 3 Cuervo & Ozz
6 3 Alan Stone & Zumbido
3 2 Alebrije & El Brazo
3 2 Antifaz & Histeria
3 2 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 Espiritu & Scoria
3 4 May Flowers, Pimpinela Escarlata
3 4 Alan & Decnis
0 1 El Elegido & Intocable

Putting aside the gross lack of logic and organization in this tag team tournament – and in AAA generally! – there does appear to be leaders forming and some sort of pattern here. Those top two teams are logical champions, though a rivalry between them would be tecnico/tecnico. They should cut this thing off right now, and just do a tournament with the top four teams; I’m only a fan of one of ‘em, but if you’re doing midrange tag team titles in AAA, those four fit.

Next known TV taping is 03/03, though I bet my hat that there’s one this week somewhere.

02/18: LA Park, IWRG, Accion

Ovaciones reports that LA Park was suspended two weeks for his attack on Dr. Wagner on 02/09. Which means the suspension is more than half over before we even heard about it (and as a non-regular, no one would’ve noticed he was purposefully not being scheduled unless someone said something about it.) LA Park says CMLL just suspended him to protect their boy Wagner, and he was already booked in northern Mexico anyway.

Next Thursday, IWRG’s running a cage of death, with hair and masks on the line, but a title that’ll actually change hands.

Mask: Electroshock (what could he possibly look like underneath that mask!), Fantasma de la Opera
Hair: Bestia Salvaje (lives!), Villano III, El Dandy, Hijo del Diablo, Suicida
Title: Black Pentagon (IWRG Middle, I presume)

I guess the old guys could drop their hair for a payday – it would explain where Bestia came from, at least. Speaking of random people showing up, the semimain includes Nosawa and Kaz Hayashi.

AAA hasn’t posted any results yet.

Accion

CMLL: Trios title match. Tarzan and Hector are wrestling in shirts. (Wellness policy?) Ultimo’s spinning double submission was the one to end them all. They tried a spot where Ultimo backdropped Hector into a dive towards Atlantis, Tarzan and Aguila, but the backdrop wasn’t high enough and Hector got caught in the ropes on the way down. Of the three catchers, Atlantis was the farthest one away and the only one who actually tried to catch him. Atlantis and Ultimo got the double Atlantidas once again, but this time Hector and Perro escaped and cradled them for the titles. Clean.

AAA: Parka, Octagon, Alerbije, Zorro vs Abismo, Antifaz, Histeria, Niebla from Puebla. Layoff has not hurt Parka’s ability to be a goof. If anything, these clips show that he had much goofiness bundled up that he just had to get out. Abismo set up for what could’ve been the Martinez Special on Alberije, so Hijo de Tirantes – just kinda stood behind him. Abismo back elbowed him for infringing on his personal space, and then set up for the Martinez Special on him. Abismo held it up, which gave Latin Lover time to get in an foul him. Alerije tripped up Abismo and pressed slammed Cuije on top before collapsing, and Zorro covered Cuije and Abismo for the win.

GdR #65

From 02/17. I thought the opener was the best segunda I can remember them showing. Main event was Dr. Wagner being Dr. Wagner, as opposed to Dr. Wagner and Ultimo Guerrero actually having a match, but you knew that once they had Lizmark and Eclipse of all people doing the opening mat session. Since we hadn’t gotten Wagner in 4 months, this was fine, though it would drive me nuts if we saw it every week.

I look forward to the only other people who watch this show seeing things 180 degrees from me.

Next week looks to be
02/09: Lady Apache, Luna Magica, Marcela vs Amapola, Medusa, Princesa Sugieth – is there still an Amapola/Apache feud if Amapola is losing all the time?
02/18: Blue Panther, La Mascara, Mictlan vs Alex Koslov, Ephesto, Misterioso II

If there’s a news update, it won’t be late – forget to tape the early Accion.

Mistico to tryout with WWE (Maybe? Maybe Not?)

I missed this yesterday, but happened to see it this morning:

Mistico will be getting a WWE tryout during the California swing over the next two weeks. I’m not sure of the date or dates but it is happening soon, and with TV in Bakersfield and San Diego, it could be this week.

Dave Meltzer

Let’s take a moment to note Super Luchas had this right (though we’re still waiting for 3 more – maybe the tryout will be tag matches!) and Ovaciones had this wrong. I wonder if CMLL lied, or just didn’t know.

WWE in Cali dates:
02/19 – Bakersfield, CA
02/20 – San Diego (with a scheduled Rey Misterio appearance – talk about your photo ops)
02/26 – Fresno, CA
02/27 – San Jose, CA

Mistico’s booked on 02/19 in Pubela (teaming with La Mascara and Volador Jr. vs Averno, Efesto, Mephisto), so maybe it’ll be next week? Puebla’s gotten too many noshows lately that they may not want to do a big one, but I don’t really know.

There’s a very slight chance this could make TV, but WWE typically runs a dark match before it starts it’s B-Show tapings, and the tryouts always happen in that dark match.

I don’t know. We were discussing this same thing one year ago this time, and nothing came of it. (And until Mistico is in a WWE ring, I’m always going to have trouble believing it.) I presume Mistico’s role to be cruiserweight babyface. If he was an instant hit and things got sorted out quick, he could even debut on WrestleMania winning that belt, but that may be pushing it and perhaps one step beyond best case scenario.

There’s a lot of questions about how Mistico would adapt to WWE style and WWE rings (and, by the size of Super Crazy lately, WWE free lunch buffets!) Will they have him keep his mask? They’ve had success with Rey masked, but haven’t succeeded with anyone else. (Ultimo Dragon failed because they didn’t were expecting him to be a Rey clone; Mistico would be better at that.) Without knowing who in the company wants to bring him in and why, it’s tough to correctly guess how he’ll be used. We also don’t know who actually owns the gimmick or what Mistico’s contract status is.

If you’re the conspiracy type, you may note how the Reyes de Aire happened a lot sooner than usual – as if CMLL knew they might be losing one it’s top small tecnico highflier and decided they needed to get serious about creating another one ASAP. If a card juggles so Averno & Mephisto are in position to pick up the tag team titles, then we know for sure.

My feeling is Mistico has worked very hard and very often for the last 3 years, and as a guy who came to CMLL with no name value and no leverage, he probably isn’t getting paid as much as he might deserve. Everyone who’s good at what they do deserves a chance to extract as much as they can out of it; even if he doesn’t sign with WWE, just the possiblity that he could’ve is going to help him. And if he ends up with a contract that has him working 3-4 times a week, rather than 3-4 times on some days, that’s going to be pretty good for him. I have reservations about how well this is going to work, but Mistico’s deserving of the chance.

Update:

I’m not sure regarding the status of Mistico coming to a WWE TV taping over the next two weeks. Seems CMLL is extremely unhappy about this and is putting the pressure heavy on Mistico not to come.

Meltzer, today.

Swear to god, when this story comes up again (and it surely will), it’s getting one sentence and no more until Mistico’s actually in a WWE ring.

02/17: Mexico results, DF lineups, GdR

ESTO

CMLL (FRI) 02/16 Arena Mexico Results [ovaciones, notimex, ESTO]
1) Mini Violencia, Pierrothito b Mini Fantasy, Shockercito
2) Eclipse, Mascara Ano 2000, Universo 2000 b Blue Panther, Lizmark Jr., Negro Casas
3) Volador Jr. b La Mascara, Sagrado, Sombra de Plata, Metro II, Leono, Super Nova, Virus, Mephisto, Alex Koslov, Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca, Felino, Stuka Jr., Valiente, Averno [ciber, reyes de aire]
4) Hector Garza, Mr. Aguila, Perro Aguayo Jr. b Atlantis, Tarzan Boy, Ultimo Guerrero [CMLL TRIOS]

Elimination order: Sombra de Plata, Super Nova, Valiente (ESTO said he was among the best tonight), Metro, Leono, Misterioso II, Stuka Jr., Virus, Felino, Alex Koslov, Sagrado, Averno, Mephisto, and La Mascara.

Final was Volador vs Sangre, with a Spanish Fly (still in desperate need of a Volador specific name) to win. If Volador ain’t picking up the CMLL Welterweight Title, perhaps he’ll go after the Mexican one. Felino/Alex got the required double pin, and Sagrado got the required injury (ESTO says he hurt his legs going thru the ropes?) Notimex has a triumphant Volador interview.

Perros won clean in the main event, with Tarzan ending up hurt. Both sides relatively respectful after their outcome.

Next week’s card are up:

CMLL (FRI) 02/23 Arena Mexico Lineup
1) Tzuki, Shockercito vs Pierrothito, Fire
2) Dark Angel, Lady Apache, India Sioux vs Amapola, Mima Shimoda, Hiroka
3) Maximo, La Mascara, Blue Panther vs Averno, Mephisto, Sangre Azteca
4) Marco Corleone, Alex Koslov, Rey Bucanero vs Ultimo Guerrero, Atlantis, Universo 2000
5) Mistico, Lizmark Jr., Volador Jr. vs Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Hector Garza, Mr. Aguila

CMLL (SUN) 02/25 Arena Coliseo Lineup
1) Molotov, Sombra de Plata vs Polvora, Vaquero
2) Stuka Jr., Starman, Danger vs Hooligan, Messala, Caligula
3) Sagrado, Virus, Leono vs Mogur, Nitro, Arkangel
4) Rey Bucanero, Heavy Metal, Alex Koslov vs Mr. Aguila, Damian 666, Halloween
5) Dr. Wagner Jr., Lizmark Jr., Dos Caras Jr. vs Black Warrior, Ultimo Guerrero, Olimpico

CMLL (TUE) 02/20 Arena Coliseo Lineup
1) Mini Olimpico, Mini Fantasy vs Mini Violencia, Sombrita
2) Trueno, Astro Boy, Explosivo vs Ramstein, Apocalipsis, Hooligan
3) Stuka Jr., Tigre Blanco, Tigre Metalico vs Loco Max, Mr. Mexico, Dr. X
4) Felino, Mitclan, Ogun vs Misterioso II, Okumura, Emilio Charles Jr.
5) Dr. Wagner Jr., Heavy Metal, Lizmark Jr. vs Black Warrior, Universo 2000, Mascara Ano 200

The official story is that we don’t know if Corelone and Koslov are tecnicos or rudos any more. I’m thinking Universo always would like to be a rudo and adjustments are being made, but we’ll see how it develops this week.

CMLL (THU) 02/15 Arena Puebla Results [Intolerancia via box y lucha]
1) Fenix, Super Star vs Fuerza Tiger, Murcielago
2) Ultimo Dragonicto b Asturiano, Mini Olimpico, Shockercito, Espiritu Maligno, Mini Damian 666, Mini Halloween, Mini Mr. Aguila, Pierrothito, ?

02/16 previews

It looks like my Posting To The Future broke, so perhaps this won’t turn up until after these shows happen. Just in case I’m lucky/observant…

CMLL:

CMLL (FRI) 02/16 Arena Mexico
1) Mini Fantasy & Shockercito vs Mini Violencia & Pierrothito
2) Blue Panther, Lizmark Jr., Negro Casas vs Eclipse, Mascara Ano 2000, Universo 2000
3) La Mascara vs Sagrado, Sombra de Plata, Volador Jr., Metro II, Leono, Super Nova, Virus, Mephisto, Alex Koslov, Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca, Felino, Stuka Jr., Valiente, Averno [ciber, reyes de aire]
4) Atlantis, Tarzan Boy, Ultimo Guerrero vs Hector Garza, Mr. Aguila, Perro Aguayo Jr. [CMLL TRIOS]

They’re going to change the trios titles, that’s for sure. Perros can’t lose three times, and this is the three top guys in the group; they run out of excuses after this match.

My guess is Volador wins the cibernetico, and this is the start of another four week push for him. La Mascara, Sagrado, Averno, Sangre, and Misterioso have the best chance of the rest.

AAA:

AAA TV (FRI) 02/16 Plaza de Toros de Uruapan, Michoacan
1) La Hechicera, Linda Star, Martha Villalobos vs La Diabolica, Lola Gonzalez, Vicky Carranza
2) Pegasso & Super Fly vs Alebrije & El Brazo and Crazy Boy & Joe Lider and Espiritu & Scoria [AAA TAG]
3) Brazo de Plata Jr., Juventud Guerrera, Tinieblas Jr. vs Sangre Chicana, Fuerza Guerrera, Pirata Morgan
4) Intocable, La Parka Jr., Octagon, Super Porky vs Alan Stone, Hator, Scorpio Jr., Zumbido
5) Charly Manson, Chessman, Cibernetico vs ?, ??, ???

I don’t suspect a lot of news here; they’re close enough to Rey de Reyes that they may start teasing matches they don’t actually deliver, but otherwise not much. Even though only one Mexican Power is in there this week, we should be heading to an Atonicos Title match – I can’t see them actually doing Fuerza/Juvi with stips. (And look how fast they’ve got sidetracked from Octagon/Fuerza.)

Nicho will be in the main event, but no surprises – maybe Head Hunter I and Ozz? A third of the roster is working a spot shot elsewhere.

Tijuana

Isn’t there a 12 man mask match tonight? Where Inferno is probably going to lose? I remember reading about it, but never seeing a full lineup.

02/16: Mexico, Guadalajara, Tijuana

cmll

El Dandy tells Ovaciones that he never signed signed with AAA. He was talking to them, but they put him on lineups before he agreed to a deal and they never could agree to a deal. Theortically, he showed up in IWRG yesterday.

Have you heard? Halloween wants to put on a big show for his 20th anniversary in wrestling. (ESTO) Congratulations to Halloween for getting three days of press out of this. This article adds that Damian and Halloween want a tag team title shot.

Esto also runs the injury story. Add Marcela to list, with a broken nose. I think there’s a 80% chance Hiroka kicked her in the face. By the way, Flash got hurt in Arena Coliseo Guadalajara on Sunday, which is odd since he wasn’t on the lineup.

ESTO talks about Reyes de Air and the non-main event portion of the card, and one on the past trios title matches between the Guerreros and the Perros. Ovaciones and Notimex have words from Atlantis and Aguila. La Union de Morelos trumps them, getting words from Perro and Ultimo, since they were in town for a show on Thursday. (Rey retained the LH Title over Ultimo, I presume.)

No one anywhere says a word about Marco Corelone. Ovaciones can even find time to slip in the AAA lineup.

CMLL (SUN) 02/18 Arena Coliseo Guadajalara Lineup
1) Thunder vs Milenio
2) Idolo, Estrella de Jalisco vs Fraile de la Muerte, Imposter
3) Antrax, Evola vs Danger, Guero Loco
4) Maximo, Satanico vs Angel Blanco Jr., Malefico
5) Negro Casas, Heavy Metal, Felino vs Damian 666 vs Mr. Aguila, Halloween
6) Volador vs Mephisto [CMLL WELTER]

CMLL (TUE) 02/20 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara Lineup
1) Neon vs Valentin Mayo
2) Exterminador vs Mr. Trueno
3) Nube Roja vs Ifierno
4) Leon Blanco vs Toxico
5) Lider vs Destroyer
6) Maximo, El Gallo vs Magnum, Mr. Power
7) Damian 666, Halloween, Mr. Aguila vs Negro Casas, Satanico, Rayman

indy (SUN) 02/18 Auditorio Fausto Gutierrez Moreno Lineup
1) TJ Crazy, Calavera vs Wama, TG Power
2) Sparks, Yarak, Mascara Negra vs Hades, Voltio, Mr. Maltito
3) Ricochet, Tucan, Kimura vs Scream, Tazmaniac, Viernes 13
4) Super Astro, Super Rino, Ninja, Mr. Tempest vs Cien Caras Jr., Pandillero I< V Dimension, Animaniac
5) Rubi Gadenia, King Azteca vs Tornado Negro, Tornado Negro Jr. vs Pandillero II, Thunderbird [hair]

This is a benefit show for Tornado Negro.

Titanes del Ring is running a benefit show, collecting food for people caught up in storms in La Paz.

Zocalo has a bio on with King Balam, who may be Super Parka’s brother if I’m reading this right

I was going to post some photos from the Chela Salazar show last weekend, but the photos on my phone – well, I’m looking for any good recommendations about digital camera you’ve got, that’s how the photos on my phone went. This also leaves me without a segue to point out that if you’re looking for more about lucha women wrestlers, Lucha Women @ Blogspot appears to be it.

03/03 AAA TV lineup

previously: 02/07, 02/09, 02/16 (preview)

AAA TV (SAT) 03/03 Plaza de Toros La Concordia Lineup [jaanrovi @ box y lucha foro]
1) Billy Boy, ?, Mascarita Sagrada vs Apache, Fabi Apache, Mini Charly Manson
2) Super Fly & Pegasso vs Alan Stone & Zumbido [AAA TAG, torneo]
3) Scoria & Espiritu vs Alan & Decnis [AAA Tag, torneo]
4) Juventud Guerrera, Joe Lider, Crazy Boy vs Pirata Morgan, Sangre Chicana, Fuerza Guerrera
5) La Parka Jr., Latin Lover, Laredo Kid, Alebrije vs Abismo Negro, Mr. Niebla, Histeria, Antifaz
6) Cibernetico, Chessman, Charly Manson vs ?, ??, ???

Again, they’re pushing the main event rudos as “Foreign Legion”; you must be feeling pretty good if you don’t name half the main event. The next TNA PPV is the following weekend, so they could be part of the mix here, and at Rey de Reyes.

This is Latin Lover’s first AAA TV match since the four way cage match in 2005, I believe. If the match with Konnan Big aired in Monterrey, that would’ve been his only television wrestling of ’06 (and now someone will remind of something minor I forget.)

Robert figured out the AAA Tag matches so I don’t have to. If you believe AAA’s just winging their way thru this and have no idea what they’re doing, they ought to get caught repeating a match real soon.

Fabi and Billy are on opposite sides of the opening trios because, I think, Fabi decided Billy went too far in the recent chain match, and that combined with their stress over Marvin being kidnapped might have finally broken them up. They’ve been doing bits where they haven’t gotten along for a while, so I guess they’ve been heading this direction. Still, something more needs to happen on TV to make this work.

I’m thinking that’s a typo and it’s Mascarita Divina in the opener. Mini Charly is working the other side, after all. Either that, or they’ve put Divina under the mask. No clue who the mystery women will be. In my evil heart of hearts, I’m hoping it’s Lady Apache – that’d be awesome in many ways.

I think there’s another TV taping in between the ones we already know

02/09 taping airs 02/18
02/16 taping airs 02/25
????? taping airs 03/04
03/03 taping airs 03/11
03/16 taping airs 03/18 (Rey de Reyes – or maybe this week is a recap week?)

They’d have to do a one day turnaround and go 15 days with a taping; that’s not likely nor worth the trouble. Maybe you already figured it out, but I thought I’d point it out
