Ramstein and Astro Boy were tearing masks in their match.
The Marco/Alex/Rey vs Atlantis/Ultimo/Universo Arena Mexico semifinal is now listed as a Relevos Increible – I don’t remember that being there when the lineups went up. Maybe not a tecnico turn?
Hijo del Santo says he was contacted by WWE, but turned down the offer because he wanted to remain an independent. He may not return to Arena Mexico until late in the year,, he thinks it’s far too soon to compare Mistico to his father – Mistico’s got to make some movies first. Santo says his Cartoon Network show is for 15 episodes. (Ovaciones)
Ovaciones also has an updated lineup for today’s IWRG card:
IWRG (THU) 02/22 Arena Naucalpan Results
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) Bestia Salvaje vs Villano III, Electroshock, Black Pentagon, El Dandy, Hijo del Diablo, Fantasma de la Opera, Suicida [hair, mask, IWRG IC MIDDLE]
The whole undercard changed – maybe Nosawa and Kaz can’t make it now and they shuffled everything else. That title match was originally scheduled for Sunday. That match got changed to a tag match with hair and the title on the line, adding Black Terry and Suicida – guess he isn’t losing his hair tonight.
Does “Mr. Randal” have some dramatic meaning in Mexico? Such an odd name for a wrestler.
WWA (FRI) 02/23 Auditorio Fausto Gutierrez Moreno Lineup [Sol de Tijuana]
1) Angel Negro Jr., Silver Star vs Thunder Mask, Thunderbird
2) Depredador, Fobia, King Azteca vs Black Spider, Rubi Gardenia, Super Astro
3) Blue Demon Jr. vs Dos Caras Jr., Espectro Jr., Hijo de Rey Misterio, Infierno, Mil Mascaras, Olimpico, Coco Rojo, Rayo de Jalisco Jr., Tinieblas, Super Muneco, Volador Jr. [mask]
This was the show I was thinking of last week. It’s Espectro or Infierno, right? Right.
indy (TUE) 02/20 Arena Coliseo Monterrey

3) Golden Boy b Black Diamond
4) Pancho Tequila b Hijo de Senor Tormenta

The next VIP card is supposed to be announced tomorrow (Ovaciones); Coco Rojo/Super Muneco for the masks has been rumored (which means they’re not losing in Tijuana.) Over on Superluchas, Migrejok responds to responses about a column critical of the VIP concept.
Box Y Lucha 2806 has Mistico, Televisa Deportes winner.
CMLL and Mexico Secretary of Health are partnering in a campaign against tuberculosis. Atlantis and Damian spoke at a clinic about the condition. Even rudos are against infectious diseases. (Ovaciones – pretty good day for them.)
La Presna has a basic preview of the 02/22 AAA TV taping.
Has Kenzo jumped to AAA? They’re always looking for more members of the Foreign Legion. I would put him ahead of Head Hunter I.
