Negro Casas defeats Volador, Invasors beat Estetas

photo by CMLL

CMLL (FRI) 01/10/2014 Arena Mexico [@therealfredo, CMLL]
1) Demus 3:16 & Pierrothito b Eléctrico & Último Dragoncito
Dragoncito replaced Astral on Wednesday (injury), then ended up hurt himself in the second fall of this match when Pierothito dropkicked him in the face. He was done for a while and eventually streteched out. May have been a broken nose. Rudos took 1/3, Demus defeating Electrico with his knockout punch (which Electrico said left him groggy on Sunday) and the Demus Driver.
2) Fuego, Pegasso, Tritón b Boby Zavala, Sangre Azteca, Shigeo Okumura
Tecnicos took 2/3.
3) Dark Angel, Estrellita, Goya Kong b Amapola, Dalys, La Seductora
Tecnicas, who are now known as Sexy Team, took 2/3.
4) Kráneo, Mr. Águila, Reaper b Máscara Dorada, Mistico, Valiente
Invasors took 1/3 with Reapear beating Mistico clean in a significant upset.
5) Negro Casas b Volador Jr.
Moved to the semimain (so the complete “tournament” could air.) Negro took the first with a scorpion, Volador won the second with a backcracker and Negro shoved the ref and snuck in a foul in the third for a win.
6) Atlantis, La Máscara, Máximo b Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
La Mascara replaced La Sombra (who seemed upset on Twitter about whatever happened to replace him.) Tecnicos appear to have won 2/3.

Casas/Volador was good, but I liked last week’s match better. Eric says in his review of the 01/04 CMLL Azteca show that Volador has not been as charismatic character as a tecnico. I totally agree with that; he comes off as the most generic CMLL tecnico (who’s has to get his stage dive in every singles match) and has lost the edge he had as a rudo. The only time I really saw it last night was when he did the headbutt spot, but that’s too infrequent.

Reaper beating Mistico was so random. It’s got to be setting up an Invasors/Estetas trios title match when Dorada & Mistico return from Japan, but the old Mistico would’ve lost cleanly to a guy on Reaper’s level. He might have not lost via cheating to Reaper. And I’m not sure this Mistico would’ve lost either if this was 12-18 months ago. Mistico La Nueva Era doesn’t exist only so they can keep selling the merchandise (like WWE Sin Cara), but he’s far from being booked as the top star and he doesn’t even feel like he’s in the top handful.

(watch this be a build up to Mistico/Reaper for Dos Leyendas now!)

DTU announced Flamita & Rocko Lobo’s return match on 02/01 will be against Violento Jack & Kealeth. That’s not exactly that match I’d like to see of those guys.

Dandy and Satanico are scheduled to have matches on 01/17 in Tijuana, 02/09 in Monterrey, 02/16 in Guadalajara, and plans for Reynosa, Saltillo, Mexicali, Nogales, Guanajuato, Cancun and Merida.

R de Rudo has a good interview with Fenix.

Lineup

CMLL (FRI) 01/17/2014 Arena Mexico
1) Molotov & Sensei vs Canelo Casas & Disturbio
2) Pegasso, Sagrado, Tritón vs Misterioso Jr., Puma, Virus
3) Estrellita vs Princesa Sugheit [lightning]
4) Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Super Porky vs Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Pierroth
5) Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Tiger vs Blue Panther, Diamante Azul, La Máscara

Wasn’t kidding about Atlantis versus Mr. Niebla for everyone.

Segunda comes dangerously close to teaming up the CMLL Cadetes del Espacio.

FantasticaMania on iPPV, Casas vs Volador, Ultimo Guerrero

FantasticaMania will be on iPPV after all. NJPW announced yesterday two of the shows will be available thru uStream for $15 USD live and on demand. They’ll air the tour opening 01/14 show and the penultimate show on 01/18 with Nakamura/Rush and Mephisto/Mistico. Both shows start at 3:30 AM central time. NJPW lists both their channels as Japanese commentary. Roberto Lopez Olivera from C3/Fox took part in Spanish language commentary for NJPW’s last iPPV but they don’t appear to be offering it this time. If that is something that might interest you, I’d suggest waiting until the day of the show to buy them. It’s still strange they didn’t even hint towards iPPVs for these shows when the shows were announced, and it suggests they’re still figuring this out.

My plan is to do live coverage of both shows. That Tuesday 01/14 show is going to be a bit rough and is obviously the show to skip if you’re only going to get one. It’s also the one to skip if you just don’t want to be up at an absurd hour during the work week. (You can always watch these later, they’ll be available legally on demand for a couple weeks.) As usual, I won’t be posting iPPV videos here, though they’ll obviously turn up on the internet.

It would’ve been nice to get the tour ending 01/19 show as well, but two is a lot better than zero. I’m glad Nakamura/Rush is available; it’s the one big NJPW vs CMLL match on the tour, and it’s the match I’ve got the most hope for.

You may have seen Negro Casas win a plaque declaring him winner of this edition of Leyenda de Plata. CMLL Gaceta’s preview of tonight’s show says Negro Casas versus Volador Jr. will determine the winner of this edition of Leyenda de Plata. I give up. Estetas del Aire versus the Invasors is the billed Terra main event. This is the last show for eight luchadors before they start that very lucrative FantasticaMania tour and it’s possible some of those participants might be looking past this show.

CMLL Gaceta also notes Negro Casas is pretty much feuding with everyone. As usual! He’s got the issue with the Panthers, he’s got to deal with Volador again tonight, and there’s still the undated hair matches with Rush & Shocker to resolve.

An article in La Otra Plana bemoans the level of lucha libre in Arena Olimpico Laguna of Gomez Palacio as a way to promote the opening of a new building in area, Arena Coliseo Corona. The article talks says that arena is being run by Ultimo Guerrero with a more serious place that could open doors to CMLL. (The irony is Ultimo Guerrero worked in Arena Olimpico Laguna this past Christmas; whatever rivalries there are between the different local arenas seem to be dropped when the national guys come home for the holidays.)

CMLL removed the Facebook page it created a few days ago and the one they’ve had for years – they now have one Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/cmll.oficial.

Last night’s Tercera Caida has Hijo de Dos Caras on as guest. He’s also part of the after the cameras segment.

LuchaWorld takes a look at SuperLuchas #100’s list of a top 100 luchadors from 1933 to 1993.

Vampiro will help train the Tlalnepantla police department. The article doesn’t specifically say he’s teaching them Krav Maga, but that’s what it sounds like. (It’s also a press conference by the head of police trying to show off how much he’s doing to fight crime, so famous luchador helps with that..)

Psycho Clown was happy with what he achieved in 2013, and hopes for more in 2014.

Texano video promo about being champion for 400 days.

Disturbio is angry crazy bald man. In a different interview with Fuego en el Ring, Disturbio gives his opponents credits for the wins, explains he liked facing different people than usual, and wants to go after Leo’s title for revenge.

Atlantis talked about the new CMLL mural to the Mas de Mas show. The show airs on Canal 40 (Proyecto) at 4pm this Saturday.

El Hijo del Santo talks about his mask versus hair match with Brazo de Oro.

Press conference for the WMC show next Saturday.

There’s a Güero del Cielo fanclub page on Facebook, which gives me a chance to remember how to correctly type Güero del Cielo.

01/25 AAA TV Lineup (Guerrero Negro, BC) – Rey de Reyes Group 1

AAA TV (SAT) 01/25/2014 Estadio de Beisbol, Guerrero Negro, Baja California
1) Faby Apache, Jennifer Blake, Lolita vs Mary Apache, Sexy Star, Taya Valkyrie
2) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Hijo del Fantasma, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Texano Jr.
3) El Mesías vs FénixZorroSilver King [Rey de Reyes, semifinal]
listed as Group 1
4) Cibernético, Jack Evans, La Parka vs Dark Cuervo, Dark Ozz, Dark Scoria

Air date: 02/08? This is a late surprise addition to the calendar so no telling if AAA builds up a big gap between taping date and air date or if one of these tapings scheduled to air over 2 weeks will be cut to 1. This is definitely a 1 week taping, but all 4 matches figure to air on UTDN.

The biggest business in Guerrero Negro is Exportadora de Sal, a salt exporter. They’re also front and center on the poster; this is a show happening in an unusual location because of the sponsor, like the last couple of 2013 tapings. It’s probably more like the Puerto Vallarta show where it’s more like a televised spot show than something where much progression should happen. (Consejo/Circus!)

This does seem like a deal that came thru late so they couldn’t announce it. I wasn’t too close on the type of deal.

The one definite storyline is the Rey de Reyes. Now that we’ve found group 1, here’s the field so far

El Mesías
Fénix
Zorro
Silver King

La Parka
Blue Demon Jr.
Parka Negra
Chessman

Cibernético
El Elegido
el Hijo del Perro Aguayo
Electroshock

All we know about the Rey de Reyes is it’s on these shows; I’d guess there’s a fourth block to take the field to 16 but not sure. My hunch is Zorro comes out of this group (Mesias being distracted to a loss by Texano), Demon in Group 2 (Parkas take each other, Chessman exists to lose), Electroshock in Group 3 (Perro/Cibernetico take each other out, Elegido exists to lose) and one more rudo in group 4. Plenty of time to change my mind.

Sin Cara first anniversary show, Star Jr., Espiritu Negro

Mistico/Sin Cara/whatever says he’s promoting a lucha libre show for the first anniversary of his Sin Cara Gym. No date announced, but that should be a fun time. This is my favorite recent Sin Cara retweet.

Ultimo Dragoncito replaces Astral on Friday’s show.

New CMLL luchador Star Jr. was interviewed ComunicateDigital. As noted earlier, he’s Star Boy Jr. with a slightly different name and has been training with Virus and Franco Colombo in CMLL. He says he likes the work of a lot of luchadors, but Ricky Marvin’s style is the his favorite. That’s a good guy to emulate.

Arena Queretaro confirmed the Espiritu Negro in Puebla next week is Queretaro’s Espiritu Negro. He is Rey Cometa’s brother (Cometa is the first guy to congratulate him in the comments)

The CMLL TuriLuchas bus resumes it’s schedule this Friday. It had been off the last two weeks during the holidays (which actually makes some of those holiday crowd more surprising.)

DTU announced La Magnifica & Aero Boy vs Keira & Drastick Boy in a tables with light tubes match for their 02/01 Arena Lopez Mateos show.

CMLL has video promos from Barbaro Cavernario and Familia Panther.

Coliseo Coacalco has a main event of Magnifico, Iron Love, Negro Navarro vs Super Comando, Artillero and Principe Odin Jr. That last trio are all brothers.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

02/09 AAA TV Lineup (Ecatepec) – Rey de Reyes Group 3

2) Aerostar, Faby Apache, Jennifer Blake vs El Apache, Sexy Star, Taya Valkyrie
3) Crazy Boy & Joe Lider vs Juventud Guerrera & Steve Pain
Nino Hamburguesa will be with the Mexican Powers
4) Angélico, Australian Suicide, Jack Evans vs Chessman, Daga, Pentagón Jr.
5) Cibernético vs El Elegidoel Hijo del Perro AguayoElectroshock [Rey de Reyes, semifinal]
listed as Group 3
6) El Mesías, Fénix, La Parka, Psycho Clown vs Jeff Jarrett, Parka Negra, Texano, Zorro

Air Date: 02/15, 02/22

Did AAA release this one early so I wouldn’t have it up first again? NAH. This sadly means I have like 3 AAA posts left for the next 31 days, which is kind of depressing. Maybe some recaps ones too, those are always plesant.

Speaking of, I just watched Guerra de Titanes Part 2 last night – everything recap wise is way behind for a variety of reasons – and sincerely wrote that the main event seemed like blow off for Jeff Jarrett in AAA. I am a tremendous fool. Back again. On the other side, you have to give AAA credit for giving Ecatepec what passes for a major show main event match on a regular TV taping. This paragraph has become too sarcastic, let’s try a new one.

Everyone seems to be working under the impression that Jarrett is starting his own promotion in the US. That would seem to be something competing for the same general space as AAA US. TNA could similarly be seen competition when Jarrett was working for them, but working with potential competition does not seem like a concern to AAA. It fits with their desire to work with CMLL, saying it’ll make both groups stronger. I’m personally unconvinced it’ll work that way, but AAA’s pretty consistent on this.

This is the first six match taping of the year*, so there’s probably not another until 02/23, and maybe 1 or 2 before Rey de Reyes. They’re obviously making a lot of headway on the tournament itself and there’s enough repeated match ups that other stuff may be in place. Texano and Mesias seem to be opposite each other a lot in particular.

Cibernetico and Perro Aguayo have be in the same block of three straight tournaments and have lost without getting pinned the last two times. If it happens again, it’s probably good news for Electroshock.

Tercera is listed as Nueva Generacion AAA. Chessman’s never not new. Like in Toluca, plenty of titles and maybe a title program after that.

Mexican Powers vs Anarquia is a street fight, but it’s also probably every Mexican Power match. No sign of Eterno in action yet.

Aerostar! With probably no one great for him to work against except Apache, so that’s a weird thing. I don’t know if they should swap him and returning Fusion superstar Jinzo, since a women’s 4 match for the Reina de Reinas title seems likely and hte opener is just there to give different guys a chance, but it would be nice if the Space Cadets got to team up – I think the CMLL version has more teamups still, and that should be impossible.

* – assuming there’s not a surprise block 1 to be added to Naucalpan; AAA’s acknowledged there’s something to be announced. This is a very big reach, but AJ Styles doesn’t have a booking that Friday and it’s possible they didn’t have him (or someone like him) locked in when that lineup was announced by may be able to announce him  later on. Shot in the dark.

Negro Casas getting away with a foul to beat you is a proper CMLL introduction.

Nuevo Valores Tuesdays might be a ongoing thing.  It would make sense for next week with the reduced star power. Next week is also a Fan Appreciation show, with some tickets marketed down to 50 and 30 pesos.

Tecnicos took 2/3. Zavala used the ropes to beat Gallo in the first, and Gallo did the same in the third.
4) Javier Cruz Jr. & Leo b Acertijo & Disturbio [hair]
Rudos jumped the tecnicos. Rudos took the first, but Acertijo was caught fouling Cruz in the second. Leo pinned Disturbio in the third. Distubrio and Acertijo got their hair shaved.
5) Felino, Mr. Niebla, Último Guerrero b Atlantis, La Máscara, Máximo
Rudso took 1/3, Niebla getting away with a foul on Niebla.

Niebla/Atlantis feud for everyone!

Hechicero turns out to be Monterrey wizard Rey Hechicero. He’s getting a tryout and isn’t full time. He’s awesome, and CMLL would be foolish to let him go (but I’d bet it depends on what else Rey Hechicero has going on.) Hechicero seems like a more natural tecnico but Hechicero as a rudo would mean things like Rey Hechicero versus Guerrero Maya Jr. are possible and I’ve got no problem with that.

CMLL has a new Facebook page. They list Star Jr. & El Rebelde as part of Generacion 2014, so that class may now be official. As mentioned previously, El Rebelde is Hooligan’s son (ex-Ultimo Rebelede, appeared on one of the lucha libre documentaries helping his father make gear.) Over on the luchawiki, it’s been figured out that Star Jr. is the ex-Star Boy Jr. He was seen in IWRG as part of Tony Rivera’s Neza squad and was wrestling in AULL late last year.

There’s an Ari Romero tribute show on Sunday in Ciudad Juarez. The main event will be Magno, Aereo, Trimegistro vs Fussion, Rey Escorpion (Juarez), and Hurricane Hector, with a Mango vs Ari Romero Jr. singles match as the semi main event.

Santo Jr. says he plans on returning to Japan this summer, then starting his career with TxT after his return. He plans on using the Tempestad name when he starts. Santo Jr. feels more urgency to take up the Santo name sooner with the possibility of his father retiring or even cutting down his career. His original plan was three summers in Japan but may cut it down; his father is telling him to take his time though and he’s going to wait until he’s ready to take the Santo mask before switching to that name. Santo Jr. talks up defending his father in feuds with Hijo del Solitario and Angel Blanco Jr.

Rey Cometa is said to be fully recovered from his forearm fracture in time for the FantasticaMania trip.

DJ Spectro says Mictlan and Rudy Reyna are in both having health issues. He says Mictlan is having kidney problems (and he says it’s due to steroids), while Reyna has had a leg amputated.

Cerebro Negro has also been in the hospital due to bad pneumonia, but is said to be doing better.

LuchaWorld has PosterMania.

Sexy Star says people were claiming it was a fake Sexy Star who wrestled at Guerra de Titanes. This is not true. I don’t think the world could handle two Sexy Stars.

Lineups

CMLL (MON) 01/13/2014 Arena Puebla
1) Black Tiger & Meyer vs Disturbio & Inquisidor
2) Camaleón, Flyer, Tigre Rojo Jr. vs Canelo Casas, Espiritu Negro, Fuerza Chicana
3) Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Tritón vs Misterioso Jr., Puma, Tiger
4) Blue Panther, Super Porky, Valiente vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Pierroth, Pólvora
5) Atlantis, La Máscara, Shocker vs Mr. Niebla, Rey Bucanero, Terrible

I wasn’t kidding about Atlantis/Niebla feuds for everyone.

That’s Volador’s brother Flyer debuting in the segunda. I saw him on an IWL show in September and he was green but had promise. He’s on the main roster quicker than I figured. The only Espiritu Negro can find Rey Cometa’s brother – you may remember seeing him when Cometa lost his mask – but he’s a bit old for being a rookie so it could be someone else.

CMLL (TUE) 01/14/2014 Arena Mexico
1) Leono & Magnus vs Apocalipsis & Cholo
2) Robin, Soberano Jr., Stigma vs Espanto Jr., Herodes Jr., Inquisidor
3) Hombre Bala Jr., Sagrado, Súper Halcón Jr. vs Cancerbero, Guerrero Negro Jr., Raziel
4) Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Sangre Azteca [lightning]
5) Negro Casas, Puma, Tiger vs Black Panther, Blue Panther, Cachorro
6) Delta, Super Porky, Valiente vs Boby Zavala, Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora

“Boby Zavala as alternate Revolucionario member” would’ve been on a top 5 CMLL forgotten storylines of 2013, but they’ve brought it back for Nuevo Valor Tuesday. Semimain is the (non-super libre) rematch, lightning match will decide which ancient civilization was better for all the times.

CMLL (TUE) 01/14/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Leo vs Ráfaga
2) Dragon Lee, Star Jr., Starman vs El Rebelde, Hechicero, Hooligan

4) Gallo, Smaker, Tritón vs Felino, Gran Guerrero, Virus
5) Atlantis, Diamante Azul, Shocker vs Mr. Niebla, Rey Bucanero, Terrible

Second match is a rematch. Gallo/Zavala issue seems like just a one show thing.

No idea where Rey de Reyes Group 1 disappeared to. I keep looking back at the Naucalpan lineup thinking I’ve missed something, but they haven’t announced one. Down with numeric order hierarchy! Groups for this year’s Rey de Reyes will be 2, 58, the letter F and a drawing of a snake.

This is a very early start to the build to Rey de Reyes and the tournament itself. It’s not explicitly listed as a semifinal but that’s the only thing that makes sense with that group of names. It also means there will be more non-tournament matches on Rey de Reyes this year without the group stage matches.

The segunda and tercera may be taking advantage of that opening. It’s billed as the New Generation of AAA, but it also might be a lead into a Fenix or Daga title defense. Both Cruiserweight and Fusion titles were pretty much frozen in 2013, but there’s likely challengers on either side. Fenix and Daga in particular are against each other on back to back shows. (Is Angelico meant to be a cruiserweight? I dunno.) The second match is a resumption of the mixed tag team title feud from all the way back in August, but then traded fro the cage match. It’s no sure thing any of these things will advance, but they’ll have room with no tournament.

random side thought because I saw one of these when I deleting the broken video links today..
Top 5 Dropped AAA Storylines of 2013!
(ranked by how much they amuse me)
5) Los Mirreyes – they did wrestle, but surprisingly few times for how much was put into the build up
4) Ricky Marvin, member of Perros del Mal
3) Ozz vs Daga
2) the brand extension
1) Billy El Malo’s mystery protege!
also receiving votes: Konnan & Dorian fired, the entire Fusion TV show, the Cruiserweight title

AAA Fusion superstar Gotita de Plata goes a cool 8 months between TV appearances. I am happy to see him but also assume Dizzy must’ve been busy. Argenis and Argos make the show and figure to make a lot more 2014 shows.

Volador keeps NWA Welterweight Title, gets to defend title again

Volador kept the NWA Welterweight Championship over Averno in Puebla. CMLL announced the Volador versus Mascara Dorada singles match on 01/19 (FantasticaMania) will now also have that title on the line.

Today’s Arena Mexico show is being pushed on “Nuevo Valores!” That’s turning into a skid. Main event looks like it’ll be fun with Rush, Titan, Stuka vs Terrible, Rey Bucanero and Virus. Semimain is Shocker, Guerrero Maya, Delta – the trio was supposed to be a team after Forajido un Idolo, so maybe Shocker’s gotten over the kid’s ditching him – against Euforia, Niebla Roja and Barbaro Cavernario. Fourth from the top is a special Panther & Panther’s Sons vs Negro Casas & Felino’s Sons.

For what it’s worth, Terra’s preview of Friday’s show does not include Volador/Negro Casas.

Veneno & Alan Extreme are champions. First defense.
5) Hijo De Dos Caras, Lizmark Jr., Vampiro vs Cien Caras Jr., Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Pirata Morgan

Cien Caras is still heavyweight champion, in case you’re wondering where they might be going with Vampiro appearances. This would be Hijo de Dos Caras’ debut here. That’s going to be a tough main event.

It appears there’s no Thursday show next week, and there won’t be one next week due to the AAA TV taping.

4) Mr. E & Sexy B vs Hijo De Dos Caras & Sicodélico Jr. [WWL TAG]
Mr. E & Sexy B are champion
5) Carlito & Chavo Guerrero vs Juventud Guerrera & Ricky Marvin
6) Blue Demon Jr. vs Monster Pain [WWL WORLD]
Monster Pain is champion

Announcing a card two months ahead of time is ambitious. The two other lineups aren’t announced but are probably about the same. Guessing this will be the least interesting Ricky Marvin around DF match of 2014. Sabu vs X-Fly is a real match.

01/03-05 lucha videos

Replacement Channel update

All the taken down videos will either go up on https://www.youtube.com/user/luchablogvault or www.dailymotion.com/user/thecubsfan/

Order for the reuploads

Noches de Coliseo – complete!
CMLL C3 – complete!
CMLL Gala – complete!
TxT – complete!
IWRG – complete!

Puebla – in progress
52MX – will require re-editing.
CMLL Fox – need to do some experimenting to see if this is safe to post.
AAA – AAA’s own channel has you covered, so I’m handing other things first.
IWL – most (all?) are already up on the TerceraCaida channel
CMLL Terra – waiting to make sure DailyMotion doesn’t ban them too.

I will not be reuploading the SLP unless someone requests it. I’m also skipping non-match segments to speed this up. If I feel safe, I may cut up the 52MX matches which aired on Terra get posted to YouTube. (It’s about figuring if Terra is banning based on the entire video, on just their logo showing up, or just finding it because Terra is listed in description.)

I will also be updating the video links in the database eventually.

I’ve noticed Daily Motion allows you to easily download the exact file I’ve uploaded. If you’re someone who downloads individual Terra matches, please try that method and let me know if it works – it’s preferable for me than also uploading them to uploaded.net.
