12/21: Guadalajara, IWRG

hype picture for Mistico in Pachuca

CMLL (SUN) 12/17 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara Results
1) Neon, Virgo b Flama, Imposter
2) Azazel, Exterminador DQ Danger (Guadalajara), Destroyer
3) Golden, Idolo, Metal Blanco, Metatron b Infierno, Magnum, Mr. Trueno, Rey Trueno
4) Angel Blanco Jr. b Fabian el Gitano [WWA MIDDLE]
5) Alex Koslov, Mascara Ano 2000, Universo 2000 b Leon Blanco, Maximo, Negro Casas

In the segunda, Destroyer bopped Exterminador on the head with a pot. I was sure the tercera was originally announced as a mask match, but it’s on Christmas instead. No report from Tuesday as of yet, but there’s a post on box y lucha saying that Rayman got hurt due to the top rope breaking.

IWRG (THU) 12/14 Arena Naucalpan Results
1) Black Stone b Rey de Corazones
2) Black Jaguar, Comando Mega b Greco Jr., Puma King
3) Cyborg, Dr. Karonte, Estallido b Ave Fenix, Freelance, Kid Tiger
4) Hijo del Diablo, Pierroth Jr., Veneno b Astro Boy, Cerebro Negro, Volador Jr.
5) Alex Koslov, Olimpico, Tarzan Boy b Felino, Negro Casas, Negro Navarro

I think every single rudo side won. That never happens.

IWRG’s running a twelve man mask/hair tournament tonight. The losers from two blocks of six will face in a stakes match.
Block A: Negro Casas, Veneno, Xiblava, Olimpico, Dr. Cerebro, Coco Rojo
Block B: Black Warrior, Felino, Cerebro Negro, Sagrado, Mr. Niebla, Coco Verde

I’d guess one of the Cerebros is going down.

Sangre Azteca talked about his title win in La Prensa. I’ve seen La Mascara hyped as having 24 or 25 defenses; we’ve got 11 recorded on the luchawiki, including the 3 previous shots Sangre was talking about. I think it’s more likely La Mascara’s actually defended the title that many times and we don’t know than them making up a defense number. That also means, somewhere, someone’s keeping track of these defenses.

While in Tulancingo for a lucha show yesterday, Super Crazy received a local award for achievement in sports.

FSE: And the big Lady Apache/La Nazi title match here. (Also, they’re rerunning last week’s episode late Saturday night.)

12/15 AAA results

AAA TV (FRI) 12/15 Plaza de Toros de Chilpancingo Results
0) Aero Star b Toxico
1) Mascarita Divina, Mascarita Sagrada AAA, Octagoncito b Mini Abismo Negro, Mini Charly Manson, Mini Chessman
2) Pegasso, Super Fly b May Flowers, Pimpinela [AAA TAG, torneo]
3) Alliens, Gran Apache b El Angel, Laredo Kid [AAA TAG, torneo]
4) Crazy Boy, Joe Lider, Juventud Guerrera DRAW Ishimori, Marafuji, Oriental
5) Cuervo, Ozz, Scoria b Abismo Negro, Antifaz, Histeria
6) Charly Manson, Chessman, Cibernetico DQ Gronda II, La Parka Jr., Octagon

Charly was actually going to beat La Parka Jr., but the Sect ran in and attacked him. Tecnicos and Hellbrothers rallied together to battle the Sect, and Cibernetico and Parka agreed to put their differences aside to take down the Sect.

The promised new Viper was not mentioned in the semimain, and it was switched to a six man. Abismo was going to win after a Black Hammer, but Espiritu interfered to help his teammates win.

4th match was a draw after the Sect ran in. That’s a lot of Sect runins. Juvi was going to pin “Mary Fuji”, as they spell it on the website, so maybe the Sect is working with NOAH’s bookers.

Alliens & Gran Apache did indeed compete again, despite having lost earlier in the tournament, so either they’ve completely lost track of what’s supposed to be going on, or we’ve been switched back to a round robin tournament. I’m assuming the latter:

Block A?

Mascara Divina & Oriental b Crazy Boy & Joe Lider (11/30)
Cuervo & Ozz b Charly Manson & Pirata Morgan (11/30)
(Chui, do you remember who won these?)

Mascara Divina & Oriental b Chris Stone & Hator
Crazy Boy & Joe Lider b Espiritu & Scoria

Cuervo & Ozz b Alan & Decnis
Charly Manson & Pirata Morgan b Juventud Guerrera & Psicosis II

Next: Juvi/Psi II vs Alan & Decnis vs Chris & Hator vs Espiritu & Scoria

Block B?

Pegasso, Super Fly b May Flowers, Pimpinela Escarlata
Alliens, Gran Apache b El Angel, Laredo Kid

Rey Cometa & Super Fly b Alliens & Gran Apache
Alebrije & El Brazo b May Flowers & Pimpinela Escarlata

el Angel & Laredo Kid b Antifaz & Histeria
Alan Stone & Zumbido b El Elegido & Intocable

Next: Alan Stone & Zumbido vs Antifaz & Histeria vs El Eleigdo & Intocable vs Alebrije & El Brazo

Next taping is unannounced, but probably not for a couple weeks more.

Mictlan on YouTube

Robert brought up that Mictlan is supposed to be a formerly unmasked guy from Guadalajara. Going of this, I’ve got two theories
- he’d be someone who wrestled at Arena Coliseo Guadalajara a bunch this year
- but someone who hasn’t wrestled there as much in the last few months

Here’s a list of all the Coliseo GDL regulars (more than 10 matches) who aren’t on the CMLL roster:

12/18: IWRG, Crazy, Atlantis, magazines

(http://cmll.com/)

Best picture I’ve seen so far, though I’m still looking. It looks like Efesto has a ram horn design on the side of his mask.

IWRG (SUN) 12/17 Arena Naucalpan Results [ova]
1) Black Stone b Puma King
2) Comando Gama, Comando Mega b Bacteria, Kid Tiger
3) Coco Blanco, Coco Rojo, Coco Verde b Black Jaguar, Dr. Karonte, Dr. Karonte Jr.
4) Camorra, Macho II, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. b Astro Boy, Suicida, Texano Jr.
5) Felino, Sagrado, Volador Jr. DQ Black Warrior, Nitro, Okumura
6) Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro b Cyborg, Xibalva [losers advance]
7) Xibalva b Cyborg [hair]

Alcibar (WED) 12/20 Coliseo Tulancingo Lineup
3) Feroz, Nemesis (Tulancingo), Genesis vs Horiguchi, Hanaoca, Brian Lee
4) Batman, Hombre Arana, Superman vs Gran Markus, Enfoermero Jr., Imposter
5) Super Crazy, Ultimo Dragon, Latin Lover vs Nicho, Pierroth Jr., Antifaz

Yes, the actual Super Crazy. Either he got permission for this, or everyone agree not to tell WWE, okay? Good to see the Mexicools breakup span countries. That show should draw.

There’s a 9 man cage of death scheduled for 12/30 in Tlaxacala, with CMLL guys: Atlantis, Olimpico, Tarzan Boy, Damian 666, Halloween, Mr. Aguila, Pierroth, Pierroth Jr., Pierroth II. While the mystery is “which Pierroth will lose”, Atlantis tells El Sol de Tlaxcala if he loses his mask, he’d retire right there on the spot. (I think he means this match, and not in general, but who knows.)

AAA (SUN) 12/17 Palacio del Arte de Morelia Results [Psicosis_Nicho of El Martiente]
1) Billy Boy, Alan, Decnnis b Alliens, Kriptor, Mungo
2) Tiffany, Jerrito Estrada, ? b Estrellita, Mascarita Sagrada, ?
3) Marafuji, Ishimori b Angel, Oriental
4) Ozz, Cuervo, Escoria, Espiritu b Juventud Guerrera, Joe Lider, Psicosis II, Hijo de Tirantes
5) La Parka Jr., Octagon, Gronda II b Ciberentico, Charly Manson, Chris Stone

In related and crucial news, it looks like the Alliens mini, Madrox, got himself a new mask.

El Siglo de Durango has an article on Alvaro Fernandez Reyes, who spent “many years” researching Santo and writing a book on him. It’s called “Santo el Enmascarado de Plata” and I couldn’t find it on Amazon.

12/17 Arena Coliseo Results

CMLL (SUN) 12/17 Arena Coliseo Results [Alvin]
1) Rayo Tapatio I, Rayo Tapatio II b Cobalto, Zayco
2) Bam Bam, Fantasy, Shockercito b Mini Damian 666, Mini Halloween, Mini Mr. Aguila
3) Lady Apache b La Nazi [MEX WOMEN]
4) Felino, Mictlan, Sagrado b Efesto, Emilio Charles Jr., Misterioso II
5) La Mascara b Sangre Azteca [MEX WELTER]
6) Mistico, Shocker, Volador Jr. b Black Warrior, Takemura, Terrible

Tiger Hispano referred the women’s title match, but there were no shenanigans – by him, anyway. Hiroka tried to help out La Nazi and failed, and Lady Apache wants another title shot. (Say no!) Normally, this match wouldn’t air, but they didn’t use matches from the PPV last time, so I think FSE gets that.

Mistico won clean in the main event. Quick, name Mistico’s title belt.

Shocker’s the He Lost His Mask guy this week.

(I’m still looking for a picture of Efesto, person who asked and people who didn’t.)

Mictlan from GdR #56

The second match from this weekend’s GdR, slightly cut to take out breaks and the post match so it’d fit under the 10 minute limit.

You can get it from sendspace here – http://www.sendspace.com/file/f7k2g2 – but it’s not going to last long before hitting the limit. I’m going to put up a version on YouTube, but I need to re-encode it at smaller size.

GdR #56

12/17. I love getting these done on the weekend of (even if it’s the Monday after the weekend)

Crowd turned on the tecnicos during the first match, mostly because Fabian completely screwed up the end of the first fall and no one (me either) would let him forget it. Secnod match was really short, but there to build La Mascara/Sangre Azteca match and it achieved that, and was a little fun too. Crowd was into it more than I’d think, given it being a lesser lineup than you’d expect for a semimain.

I was thinking about it, and I don’t want to tell Ultimo Guerrero how to run his army of evildoers, but if this was baseball, I sorta would, and I’d be hoping to see this line on the transaction pages

GUERREROS, ATLANTIDA
- option (MW) Eclipse to Guerrero Pandilla of the AAA Segunda League, purchase the contract of (WW) Sangre Azteca from Guerrero Pandilla.

I’ll post the match tomorrow.
