02/16: Mexico, Guadalajara, Tijuana


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.

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

Santo Versus The Clones

As seen in the comments: I’ve got the five parts that are up on YouTube after the link. They’re all about 2:30 long.

02/15: Santo, Guerreras

Here’s the press release on the Santo cartoon on Cartoon Network. They don’t have a title OR a start date, but they do have a 13 episode pickup. The show is being produced by Cartoon Network Studios itself, which is probably a good sign. I suspect they’ll repurpose the show for it’s Latin America division as well.

The show creator, Carlo Olivares Paganoni, has a mySpace page (good that he’s Santo’s friend!) and previously produced another Santo short cartoon – is this the one that aired in Mexico? That would make sense. No luck in find this video posted online yet.

It sounds like this will be an updated version of Santo versus vampires and werewolfs and invading hordes from outer space, which could be loads of fun.

Ovaciones has an interview with Juvi and Fuerza. Juvi would be more than happy to face his father in a hair/mask match. Fuerza’s appalled he raised his son to be a man but instead, he’s acting like a clown – no better than Pimpinela or Latin Lover.

La Presna is a day late on the Halloween 20 Year show (which obviously is everyone working off the same interview) and Flash’s injury.

02/17-18 Lucha Times

AAA on Gala: Split feed again. This week, the 01/20 show for sure.

GdR: The usual Mexico match, and Wagner and Ultimo for the first time in quite some time.

FSE: Mistico/Warrior, and the usual undercard match. Good luck taping it.

AAA in Mexico: 02/09 taping, with La Parka Jr.’s return, Latin Lover’s return, and Billy vs Apache in a chain match.

02/14: Coliseo, Puebla, Monterrey

CMLL says they have not been contacted by WWE or any of their representatives about Shocker, Perro or Mistico leaving and joining WWE. The story, in Ovaciones, claims all rumors (especially on internet sites!) are completely false. A similiar story appears in La Prensa.

Cartoon Network will debut a new Santo cartoon (not the stuff that aired in Mexico) sometime in 2007. They don’t have a title yet, so I’m thinking late half of ’07, but there should be more specific news about this today. (ToonZone – thanks for the link.)

CMLL (MON) 02/12 Arena Puebla Results [hugo999]
1) King Jaguar, Zigma b Ares, Mr. Rafaga

Ovaciones also has a bio on Villano III (claiming 200 masks won and 160 hairs won, and no plan on retiring any time soon) and an interview with Halloween (hitting 20 years of wrestling on 04/07 and wants to do a show with all his old friends wearing their old gimmicks to celebrate it; more in Notimex.)

La Opinion has a long interview with Blue Demon Jr. Among other things, Demon’s offended that anyone considered the outcomes of lucha libre bouts to be fixed.

Downtown LA Scene has an article about Lucha Va Voom, which is running tonight and tomorrow in the Mayan Theater.

El Heraldo de Tabasco has an interview with Terrible Black, Thunderman Jr. and Thunderman I.

GdR #64

From 02/10

So I blew the lineup for the show. It was actually:

01/27 Mexico: Dr. X, Misterioso II, Shigeo Okumura b Mascara Purpura, Metro, Virus
02/04 Coliseo: Felino, Maximo, Sagrado vs Alex Koslov, Ephesto, Apocalipsis

Another EH show.

Here’s the actual results from last Sunday’s card, via KrisZ. I don’t know why you’re reading this and not him instead.

CMLL (SUN) 02/04 Arena Coliseo Results
1) Fire, Mini Violencia b Bracito de Oro, Mini Fantasy
2) India Sioux, Luna Magica, Sahori b Amapola, Medussa, Rosa Negra
3) Fabian el Gitano, Metro II, Satanico b Arkangel, Loco Max, Nitro
4) Felino, Mictlan, Sagrado b Alex Koslov, Apocalipsis, Ephesto
5) Black Warrior, Misterioso II, Olimpico b Dr. Wagner Jr., Heavy Metal, Mistico

Did anyone ever rip the missing Mexipowers AAA Tag match? I could maybe do that tomorrow, though ripping video has become much more of pain all the sudden.

02/16 Arena Mexico card changed

As noted by Robert in the comments

CMLL (FRI) 02/16 Arena Mexico Results
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]

CMLL.com notes the main event being changed to a title match and the injuries to Flash and Mascara Purpura, but doesn’t explain Corelone’s disappearance.

02/13: Coliseo, injuries, IWRG, lineups


CMLL (SUN) 02/11 Arena Coliseo Results [cmll]
1) Polvora, Vaquero b Rayo Tapatio I, Rayo Tapatio II
2) Hooligan, Loco Max, Ramstein b Starman, Tigre Blanco, Tigre Metalico
3) Leono, Stuka Jr., Virus DQ Mogur, Ohara, Okumura
4) Maximo, Sagrado, Texano Jr. b Arkangel, Misterioso II, Nitro
5) Dr. Wagner, Lizmark Jr., Negro Casas b Eclipse, Olimpico, Ultimo Guerrero
6) Mistico b Black Warrior

Vaquero and Tigre Blanco were carted out in the first two matches. Stuka replaced Mascara Purpura in the third, note on that below. Mogur fouled Leono to end that match, so Leono/Mogur is indeed an upcoming hair match. Note the Mexican Trios champs teamed up and won, so no program there. Wagner beat Ultimo in the semimain with help from the ropes, as previously noted. Warrior won fall one of the main, but Mistico won the last two with a casita and la Mistica.

Alexis’ report notes this has been five straight Sunday shows with Mistico, and five straight full arenas.

Ovaciones has a couple injury notes
– Flash suffered a right arm injury on Sunday. It required surgery, and he’ll be out for “several” weeks. No replacement has been announced for the Rey de Aires. Who would it be?
– Mascara Purpura may have been your answer, but he’s also hurt. It’s an ankle injury, and he’ll be out six weeks.

So, young high flying guy, and we’ve already got La Máscara, Sagrado, Sombra de Plata, Volador, Metro, Leono, Super Nova, Flash, Sangre Azteca, Felino, Stuka, Valiente, Misterioso, Averno, Mephisto, Alex Koslov – Astro Boy? Danger? Trueno? Fabian? No, not Fabian.

The Perro/Garza/Aguila vs Tarzan/Ultimo/Atlantis trios match has been turned into a CMLL Trios title match (instead of waiting til next week to do it.)

IWRG (SUN) 02/11 Arena Naucalpan Results
1) Zella b Francotirador
2) Extrano, Vampiro Metatlico b Celestial, Simbolo
3) Antaris, Bacteria, Star Boy b Super Colt, Trauma I, Trauma II
4) Avisman, Black Terry, Fantasma de la Opera b Cerebro Negro, Freelance, Suicida
5) Misterioso II, Pierroth, Veneno DQ Electroshock, Esfinge, Negro Navarro

Pierroth faked a foul in the main event. Freelance and Avisman are still feuding, as are Veneno and Electroshock.

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

They’ve got Avisman listed in two matches. Gotta be a typo.

Guerreros del Ring #74 has El Elegido.
Box Y Lucha 2805 has Nicho in AAA and Fuerza vs Juvi.

Espanto Jr. is selling a Best of DVD, including his mask match with El Hijo del Santo. The article includes a phone number, if you’d like to call Mexico. Get a copy for me.

Rest of the week lineups are below.

02/16 AAA TV Lineup

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

It’s the foreign legion in the main event. No names are announced, but I’d assume it’d be Nicho and a Head Hunter or two.

Both Pegaso/Super Fly and Joe Lider/Crazy Boy have faced Scoria/Espiritu, so it should be Scoria & Espiritu vs Alebrije & Brazo and Pegaso & Super Fly vs Joe Lider & Crazy Boy.

Tinieblas Jr. was last on an AAA TV on 10/20/05.

Linda Star is way too young to be in that women’s trios match.
