Tama Tonga adavnces to Copa Junior final on non-British Night, Sin Piedad lineup

photo by CMLL

CMLL (FRI) 12/07/2012 Arena Mexico [CMLL, Yahoo! Deportes]
1) Artillero & Súper Comando b Metálico & Sensei
Rudos took 2/3. Artillero snuck in a foul on Metalico after he’d been eliminated.
2) Arkángel de la Muerte, Hooligan, Skándalo b Pegasso, Starman, Super Halcón Jr.
Pegasso replaced Angel Azteca Jr. (announced on Friday.) Hooligan was wearing a normal outfit and nothing British themed. Isis was sent to the back after walking her team out. Rudos took 2/3, Skandalo beating Pegasso.
3) Hijo del Fantasma, Rey Cometa, Tritón b Namajague, Sangre Azteca, Shigeo Okumura
Tecnicos took 2/3, Fantasma beating Okumura.
4) Tama Tonga b ShockerMáximoSuper PorkyGuerrero Maya Jr.Stuka Jr.Dragón Rojo Jr.FelinoMisterioso Jr.Puma [Copa Jr., semifinal]
Misterioso went out first (4:20), Puma & Felino beat Porky (8:47), Dragon Rojo beat Stuka (12:42), Shocker beat Puma, Tama beat Maya, Felino beat Maximo, Dragon Rojo & Maximo got DQed at the same time (20:20), Tonga beat Shocker to win (26:50) and advance to face La Sombra next week.
5) La Sombra b Último Guerrero
Originally announced as a lightning match for the JLD Trofeo, then changed to a one fall no time limit match, and finally the name of the match was dropped when British Night was pulled out. Sombra won with a double moonsault and was given the trophy anyway.
6) Diamante Azul, Máscara Dorada, Rush b Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
Dorada beat Averno with a Dragon ‘Rana

CMLL removed all references to British Night from their website, and made no mention of the heavily promoted themed night at any time during their show. There has been no explanation from their side as to what happened and it does not seem like one is coming. The only halfway acknowledgement something different was supposed to happen on this show as Sombra still getting the trophy after beating Ultimo Guerrero while avoiding all explanation of why he would be getting a trophy after what was now billed as a singles match. I guess they couldn’t return it.

Los Colisenos pointed out CMLL had been selling VIP packages where you could  meet and greet the luchadors. That part of the ticket was also not honored and is appears no refunds were offered. CMLL made some amount of extra money on this show, because of extra high tickets like those and a stronger promotion for a show than usual. That money, at least in part, was intended to go to a charity organization and instead it appears CMLL will be keeping it.

Maybe they’ll be donating it elsewhere, maybe CMLL is actually totally in the right here, but they’ve acted in such a way to suggest they’re completely at fault. It’s just a dumb way to go about thing. This one is so bad that it’s tough to brush off as just an upper management problem. When a charity accuses you of trying to rip them off, everyone - management,  luchadors, announcers, security, anyone who works for the promotion – is stained by the accusation.

To be fair, no one else is mentioning this situation either; I haven’t seen a single news article mentioning the JLD management & UK Embassy pulling out of the show, even from outlets which aren’t on good terms with CMLL. I’m uncertain if that’s pressure CMLL is putting out not to report on this (that does seem to be a few of the cases), or an indication of how low the level of interest is in CMLL.

Lineups

CMLL (FRI) 12/14/2012 Arena Mexico
***Sin Piedad, 2012***
1) Astral, Bam Bam, Fantasy vs Demus 3:16, Pequeño Olímpico, Pierrothito
2) Dark Angel, Estrellita, Silueta vs Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sugheit
3) Titán, Tritón, Valiente vs Felino, Negro Casas, Puma
4) Máscara Dorada vs Averno [lightning]
5) Diamante Azul, Rush, Shocker vs Terrible, Último Guerrero, Volador Jr.
6) La Sombra vs Tama Tonga [Copa Jr., final]

This is a good lineup for an average – every match could be good and a couple could be great – but I’m finding it tough to be enthused by CMLL at this moment. It’s not that exciting for a year end show.
Tonga has the tag title defense on Tuesday and this Copa final on Friday, which is usually the sign of a NJPW losing his last couple of big matches before leaving town. Of course, we though that about a month ago and Tonga won both that time.

2) Infierno Kid, Radical, Súper Black b Alas de Acero, Atomic Star, Xtreme Boy
3) Fly Star, Seiya, Serpiente de Oro b Blue Monsther, Power Bull, Ranchero
4) Araña de Plata Jr., Dragón Celestial, Galaxy b Blasfemia, Fulgore, Matrix Jr.
Blasfemia replaced Guerrero Mistico.
5) Boykot, Flemyzeer, Halcón Diabólico, Jhon Crazy, Kimby, Mr. Leo, Rey Espacial, Rey Tabú b Alan Extreme, Centvrión, Dinamic Black, Eita, Eterno, Imposible, Saruman, Violencia Jr. [Copa Higher Power]
FILL trainees vs Gimnasio Fuerza Konkreto (Fuerza Guerrera). Kimby impressed of the Fuerza guys. Match came down to Mr. Leo vs Centviron, with Fuerza intefering to give his guy the win. Black Terry was very unhappy, and their were rematches and other challenges made.

CMLL (MON) 11/12/2012 Arena Puebla [Porra Fresa]
1) Akron & Siki Ozama Jr. b Black Tiger & Blue Center
Rudos took 1/3.
2) Dalis la Caribeña, Lady Afrodita, Marcela b La Vaquerita, Mima Shimoda, Zeuxis
Tecnicos took 2/3, Marcela defeating Zeuxis for the win. Vaquerita, working against Afrodita, looked lost at times.
3) Skándalo b Metatrón [lightning]
Reyna Isis accompanied Skandalo. Skandalo won with the Skandalo Driver. Metatron had one of his better performances.
4) Hijo del Fantasma, Sagrado, Triton b Misterioso Jr., Namajague, Shigeo Okumura
Tecnicos took 1/3, Fantasma surprising Misterioso with a roll up.
5) La Sombra, Máximo, Rush DQ Tama Tonga, Terrible, Tiger
Tecnicos took 1/3, Terrible fouling Sombra in the third fall. Sombra challenged Terrible to a singles match, but Terrible just left.
6) Mephisto b Mistico
Mephisto won the first with a powerbomb, Mistico came back in the second with a torito. Mistico landed his rope crossing dive late in the ring, then landed a shooting star press once without being able to get the pin. Moments later, he went for another, but his feet hit the the ropes on the way down and Mistico crashed shoulder first into the mat. Mistico attempted to cover Mephisto anyway, but Mephisto put him in an armbar and Mistico immediately gave up. The doctor and Tirantes attended to Mistico after the match.

CMLL hasn’t said anything about Mistico’s status, but the local promoter in Durango says Mistico has suffered a shoulder injury and will not be wrestling at their show on Sunday, though he will be appearing to sign autographs. Hope he didn’t hurt his signing shoulder. Delta replaces him on that card. Mistico is supposed to be on Friday night’s Arena Mexico show, and no replacement has been announced yet.

CMLL (TUE) 11/13/2012 Arena Mexico [CMLL, Estrellas del Ring, Yahoo Deportes (Photos)]
1) Espanto Jr. & Herodes Jr. b Metatrón & Oro Jr.
2) Demus 3:16, Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Warrior b Astral, Bam Bam, Pequeño Halcón
Rudos took 1/3. Bam Bam’s latest return, though it ended with Demus dropping him with his piledriver so he could be gone again. Olimpico also submitted Ultimo Dragon.
3) Fuego, Stuka Jr., Triton DQ Hijo del Signo, Shigeo Okumura, Vangelis
Stuka & Okumura are feuding (or maybe this is the Coliseo tag team feud again.) Stuka beat fall 1, then the rudos were DQed for excessive violence in the second.
4) Blue Panther, Máscara Dorada, Valiente b Niebla Roja, Pólvora, Rey Escorpión
Straight falls for the tecnicos when the rudos fell apart. Polvora sided with Rey Escorpion and Niebla Roja wasa left without his mask.
5) Negro Casas b Ángel de Oro [lightning]
Negro continued his dominance over Angel de Oro with a win in 8:49.
6) Tama Tonga & Terrible b Atlantis & Diamante Azul [CMLL TAG]
Atlantis & Diamante Azul came in as champions, but Tonga & Terrible pulled the shocking upset, taking falls 1/3 to win the titles.

Aerostar, Dark Dragon and Fenix won the main event over Difunto I, Monje Negro Jr., and Potro Jr. by DQ in Monterrey, with Dark Dragon refused to help his teammates.

MedioTiempo has an interview with Mesias. He talks a bit about his match with Texano, but also calls LA Park his toughest rival since coming to Mexico, and trashes Carlito as someone’s been handing everything and used his influence to keep Mesias from going to WWE.

I will be losing AYM Sports from my cable system on 12/12. AYM has broadcasts Sobre el Ring (the Javier Llanes/Jaque Mate interview show) and various independent groups (Revolution Free Style! FULL!), but is most notable for broadcasting IWRG’s Sunday shows the last couple months. I’m going to miss those, there’s been some really great and fun matches during this short run. The show drives me crazy because I’m up until way too late to put it together for the Tuesday post, but I’ve been thrilled to share the matches with everyone else. We’ve got four more Mondays to go.

I think it may be a case where everyone in the United States is losing AYM; this is not a surprise, one of you mentioned a month back they tried to sign up to get the channel only to be told AYM was going away by their cable system. The channel that replaces it is “Latin American Sports“, and is owned by the same parent company, so they may have simply decided to change which channel they wanted to transmit to the US. AYM Sports itself will still keep broadcasting in Mexico and continue the lucha libre shows, I just won’t be able to share them. The channel description for Latin American Sports says it too broadcasts wrestling (possibly from Puerto Rico?), but does not say what. It’s supposedly already on DISH Network, but I can’t find a guide with a programming listing and there is no website.

Murder Clown is upset the Infierno Rockers would attack them from behind. That’s not very gentlemanly! There’s also talk about the Psycho Circus wanting the trios titles back. It’s seemed like AAA may be doing a Psycho Circus vs Consejo trios title rematch (with Silver defending the title instead of Texano), and that’s suggested in this article agian, but maybe it’ll turn out to be three way with the Rockers?

Joe Lider & Kaientai will face off in a hair vs mask match on NGX’s 10th anniversary show.

DTU luchador Tacubo will be given an award for his anti-bullying campagin.

R de Rudo has a podcast talking about Eddie Guerrero, 7 years after his passing. Perros del Mal will also discuss Eddie Guerrero on their podcast.

AAA’s website has an article about how AAAwesome AAA is. If they really want talk about how they have zero taboos, maybe they can mention Extreme Tiger leaving.

AAA also has part one and part two of their interview with Psycho Circus.

X-Project is doing it’s annual toy drive, this one for Fray Tormenta.

El Hijo del Santo was part of a press conference to promote a film festival in Mexico City later this month.

Lineups

CMLL

CMLL (TUE) 11/20/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Halcón de Plata & Metatrón vs Exterminador & Magnum
2) Gallo, Sensei, Starman vs Bárbaro Cavernario, Cancerbero, Raziel
3) Dalis la Caribeña, Estrellita, Silueta vs La Comandante, Princesa Blanca, Zeuxis
4) Atlantis, Hijo del Fantasma, Máscara Dorada vs Morphosis, Psicosis, Tama Tonga
5) La Máscara vs Volador Jr.

This is the seventh La Mascara/Volador Jr. match this year, and third in Guadalajara. They’ve split the other two.

A increasingly rare Morphosis appearance! His first match in CMLL in two months, his first appearance in Guadalajara since February. Mophosis seems to spend most of his time in Texas/northern Mexico, where he’s still working as Histeria.

More loaded card than usual means Metatron is down to the opener here.

IWRG (SUN) 11/18/2012 Arena Naucalpan
1) Astro Rey Jr. & Serpiente de Oro vs Dragón Celestial & Epidemia
2) Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro, Trauma II vs Carta Brava Jr., Eita, Oficial Fierro
3) Dinamic Black, Golden Magic, Saruman vs Alan Extreme, Imposible, Jack
4) Hijo de Pirata Morgan vs Veneno, Trauma I, Oficial AK47, Cien Caras Jr., Relámpago, Canis Lupus, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000 [#1 Contenders, Rey de Ring]
5) el Ángel vs Oficial 911 [IWRG IC WELTER]

It’s been a long six days since the last IWRG tournament. Relampago is going to keep going into these until he finally wins a match. Last #1 contenders match meant an immediate title match, not sure if that’s the same here.

911 vs Angel looks really good, as do the 2nd and 3rd match. It looked like Cerebro Negro was headed towards the rudo side in last weekend’s tournament, something to watch here. Interesting to see Trauma II scheduled for a segunda.

They’re doing a 3 for a price of 2 ticket deal.

Mephisto vs Mistico, Tonga Twins vs Ola Azul, Pequeno Cage of Death

CMLL (MON) 11/05/2012 Arena Puebla [El Sol de Puebla, Porra Fresa]
1) Black Tiger & Lestat b Fuerza Chicana & Saurón
Tecnicos took 2/3.
2) Bengala, Leono, Soberano Jr. b Apocalipsis, Inquisidor, Súper Comando
Super Comando replaced Zayco. Tecnicos take 1/3.
3) Hijo del Signo b Pegasso [lightning]
Signo won in 7 minutes.
4) Cancerbero, Raziel, Virus b Arkángel de la Muerte, Hooligan, Skándalo
Isis was with the Tuareg. Cancerberos took 2/3, with Virus and Isis fighting after the match.
5) Euforia, Misterioso Jr., Vangelis b Diamante, Máximo, Rey Cometa
Euforia replaced Mephisto. Rudos took 1/3, Euforia beat Maximo.
6) Dragón Rojo Jr., Mephisto, Tama Tonga b La Sombra, Máscara Dorada, Mistico
Mephisto replaced Ephesto. Rudos took 1/3, Mephisto yanking Mistico’s mask to beat him. Mistico challenged Mephisto to a singles match next week. A fan gave Mistico a mask after the match, but the rudos ripped that one up too.

The El Sol de Puebla calls Tuareg vs Cancerberos “one of the more stale rivalaries”, while the Porra Fresa recap notes the Puebla fans do not get into rudo vs rudo feuds.

CMLL (TUE) 11/06/2012 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Camorra & Ramstein b Freesbe & Robin
2) Hombre Bala Jr., Super Halcon Jr., Triton b Artillero, Disturbio, Súper Comando
Triton replaced Angel Azteca Jr. Tecnicos took 2/3.
3) Dark Angel, Marcela, Silueta vs La Comandante, La Seductora, Tiffany
Silueta replaced Dallys on Monday. Tecnicas took 2/3, Silueta & Dark Angel beating Seductora & Tiffany.
4) Delta b Virus [lightning]
Delta won in 6:57 with a reinera.
5) Ángel de Oro, Diamante, Hijo del Fantasma b Euforia, Olímpico, Vangelis
Tecnicos took 2/3.
6) Mephisto, Tama Tonga, Terrible b Atlantis, Blue Panther, Diamante Azul
Mascara Dorada was originally announced, then replaced by Blue Panther. Tama & Terrible beat Atlantis & Diamante Azul, then challenged for a tag title match next week.

They’re doing the tag title match! Not sure why it got switched from Sunday or Tuesday (or maybe I was wrong all along, possible.) This changes the Azul vs Tonga match on Sunday a bit.

CMLL (TUE) 11/06/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [SuperLuchas]
3) La Máscara, La Sombra, Mistico b Felino, Psicosis, Rey Escorpión
Tecnicos took 2/3.
4) Pequeño Warrior L Shockercito, Último Dragoncito, Pequeño Halcón, Aereo, Astral, Fantasy, Pierrothito, Demus 3:16, Mercurio, Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Violencia [cage, hair]
Cage was a death trap. Halcon escaped, after the three minute fighting period, then the problems started. Olimpico escaped when a part of the cage gave way and trapped his arm in the cage. Oficials had to pull him free. Mercurio, Aereo and Fantasy followed him out. Astral attempted to do a moonsault off the top of the cage onto those who escaped, but got caught in the cage and fell very badly. Medics quickly rushed him away. Mercurio was also hurt here, and needed a strecher. Pierrothito bleeding (which may have not been an accident) before he left. Demus was given all sorts of moves and thrown off the cage while trying to escape multiple times. He did escape, but could not stand up and was strechered out. Pequeno Violencia’s back was bloody as he climbed out. That left Shockercito and Pequeno Warrior for the single fall final, and Shockercito won with a reinera after a bit of time. Pequeno Warrior lost his hair.

Post match, Shockercito said he may not be a big star, but he a big person in Pequeno Warrior.

There’s a minis match on Friday – Astral, Fantasy, Ultimo Dragoncito vs Demus 3:16, Pequeno Olimpico, Pierrothito – and we might have a better idea of who made it out of this cage match in one piece by who’s actually in that match. It’d be nice if CMLL just explained their situations, but it’d be even nicer if anyone explained the deal with Angel Azteca Jr.

La Magnifica, the QPPLC women’s winner who never turned up on AAA’s TV and is never mentioned when they talk about last year’s winners, is part of AAA’s Guadalajara stop for this year’s QPPLC talent search contest in a women’s trios match. Magnifica is a Guadalajara native. Maybe the reason she never turned up in AAA is she simply had second thoughts about relocating?

5) Brazo de Plata, Brazo de Bono (Akebono) b Nosawa & Masada
6) Ultimo Dragon, Rayo de Jalisco Jr., Great Sasuke b Ultimo Guerrero, Ohara, Black Tiger
Ohara pinned Dragon in the 1st, Ohara unmasked Dragon in the 2nd for a DQ, Dragon beat Ohara in the third

Amapola was taken off Sunday’s Arena Mexico show because she’s headed to REINA X WORLD, defending her REINA International Championship against Mia Yim on 11/11.

Lineups

Eita returns to Mexico on Sunday, replacing Canis Lupus in the WWS Welterweight Championship match. That’s an incredibly loaded tournament, where Relampago is the only questionable guy in the mix and the other guys are great. Lupus moves up to the semimain, taking the place of Hijo del Solitario (who seems done here before he even showed up.)

CMLL (TUE) 11/13/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Divino & Virgo vs Acertijo & Sádico
2) Black Metal & Metatrón vs Exterminador & Ráfaga
3) Estrellita, Luna Mágica, Silueta vs Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sugheit, Tiffany
4) Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Titán vs Kráneo, Mr. Águila, Olímpico
5) La Máscara, Shocker, Super Porky vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Mephisto, Volador Jr.

A show!

CMLL RF (SAT) 12/01/2012 Plaza de Toros Caletilla, Acapulco
1) Astral, Shockercito, Último Dragoncito vs Demus 3:16, Pequeño Olímpico, Pierrothito
2) Dalis la Caribeña, Luna Mágica, Marcela vs Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sugheit, Tiffany
3) Fuego, Sagrado, Stuka Jr. vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Misterioso Jr., Skándalo
4) La Máscara, Marco Corleone, Máximo vs Felino, Negro Casas, Volador Jr.
5) Atlantis, Mistico, Shocker vs Averno, Mephisto, Último Guerrero

This is an Acapulco equivalent of the Herdez show in Arena Mexico, a free show being paid for by the local sponsor. Both shows are more packed than a usual Friday night card, the sponsor paying for ‘all the stars’, but neither include Rush. They both take place during the time NJPW is running it’s heavyweight tag team tournament tour, so I suspect Rush is heading over to participate. Not sure about his partner. It should be announced this weekend on NJPW’s PPV.

Tama Tonga vs Diamante Azul & Polvora vs Mascara Dorada set for next week, AAA TV in Villahermosa

photo by CMLL

CMLL (SUN) 11/04/2012 Arena Coliseo
1) Herodes Jr. & Ramstein b Bengala & Robin
Robin replaced Camaleon on Tuesday. Rudos took 1/3. Herodes pinned himself while pinning Bengala, but Tigre Hispano did not notice.
2) Hombre Bala Jr., Magnus, Super Halcon Jr. b Disturbio, Hijo del Signo, Zayco
Tecnicos took 2/3, Halcon powerslam into the buckles on Disturbio while Bala split legged moonsaulted ayco.
3) Namajague, Shigeo Okumura, Vangelis b Fuego, Stuka Jr., Triton
Rudos took 2/3, Okumura superplexing and sentoning Fuego. Namajague hurt his left shoulder but finished the match.
4) Misterioso Jr. b Diamante [lightning]
Misterioso won in 8:57 via Gori SPecial.
5) Kráneo, Pólvora, Psicosis b Blue Panther, Hijo del Fantasma, Máscara Dorada
Dorada and Polvora feuded the entire match. The announcers suggested a title match between them before it started. Dorada surprised Psicosis with a pinfall in the first, Polvora powerbombed Dorada in the second, and they ripped each other’s masks in the third. A Mije splash beat Panther in the third, Dorada springboard splashed Kraneo to defeat him, and Polvora pinned Dorada for the win after a Valagueza into a low blow. Polvora made the title match challenge after the match.
6) Diamante Azul, La Sombra, Shocker DQ Dragón Rojo Jr., Tama Tonga, Volador Jr.
Tecnicos won by DQ when Tonga unmasked Azul. Azul challenged him to a singles match next week, Tonga accepted.

AAA’s TV announced a TV taping for 11/25 in Villahermosa, Tabasco. That would air the day before Guerra de Titanes. There’s no taping announced between this Friday’s taping in Puebla and this new show, so the Puebla taping is two weeks of taping. AAA doesn’t have to set up the whole card by the end of Puebla, but the main events should be clear.

Rob has highlights of 04/20/12 CMLL.

Mazambula was unmasked in Tijuana.

Dr. Wagner had fans scream insults at LA Park to end the Fusion taping.

SuperLuchas #487 has Fierro, Ultimo Guerrero and Santo on the cover.

Luchas 2000 #645 has Angel, Ultimo Guerrero, and Santo on the cover.

Felino replaced Ephesto. Mascara pinned Averno in the first, then Mephisto pulled Mistico’s mask in the second in a disappointing match. Mistico challenged Mephisto a singles match.

CMLL (TUE) 10/30/2012 Arena Mexico [CMLL, CMLL Gaceta]
1) Akuma & Camorra DQ Freesbe & Oro Jr.
Camorra fouled Freesbe
2) Artillero, Hooligan, Súper Comando b Camaleón, Pegasso, Sensei
Camaleon replaced Angel Azteca Jr. Isis was with Hooligan. Rudos took 1/3. Sensei was strechered out with a knee injury and Pegasso was hurting (as usual.)

Tecnicos won in straight falls when Arkangel and the Cancerberos turned on each other.

Cometa won with a 450 splash in 8:10.
5) Euforia, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero b Diamante Azul, Mistico, Stuka Jr.
Rudos took 2/3, Euforia & Niebla getting the pins while Mistico dove onto Mistico.
6) Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. b Black Warrior, Mr. Águila, Volador Jr. [MEX TRIOS]
Volador, Mr. Aguila, and Black Warrior came in as champs. Delta & Maya took 1, Volador took the second with a backcracker on Atlantis, and Atlantis won the match with an Atlantida on Volador (again!) Reyes del Atlantida are champions as a team for a third time, Atlantis has won the titles three times.

Shocker & Brazo de Plata beat Terrible & Dragon Rojo in Arena Queretaro. In the undercard, Amapola (replacing Tiffany) was beat by local luchador Reyna Azteca in a tag match. The Quereatro wrestler challenged for a title match.

The semi-official Noti AAA Facebook site confirmed Decnnis was leaving AAA, then took down that post, put up another post saying all the rumored people leaving AAA (Tiger, Wagner) were not true. That’s totally not confusing. In the comments of the last post, they say Wagner is joining going back to being an independent who works with AAA. (The difference there is if AAA controls his booking for non TV shows and what cut they need; someone the level of Wagner doesn’t need AAA for that.) As for Extreme Tiger, he’s scheduled to work tonight’s Halloween show in Arena Lopez Mateos, which would be an easy time for him to confirm or deny rumors.

Arena Neza’s Facebook writes Vampiro will miss this weekend’s AAA Fusion taping. Vampiro’s said the same, going on to say he’s busy with another show and AAA never told him he was on this show. Same thing happened last time Vampiro missed a taping. Mesias will take his place, which greatly improves the match. AAA hasn’t acknowledged the change yet.

Quien Pinta Por La Corona held a press conference in Guadalajara for the event there on 11/10 and 11/11. QPPLC also posted profiles of some of the finalists: Rey Maya (nephew of Canek!), Forajido (inspired by Cibernetico and Gronda), Full Back Jr. (snuck off to train with Canek), Demoledor (36 years old), and New Fire Jr.

Samuray del Sol was on Figure Four Daily yesterday (subscriber only) in a really good interview where he talked a lot about his career. His story about being in last year’s QPPLC contest was my favorite part. Samuray never actually signed up for the contest himself, Crazy Boy just invited him to come to Veracruz, then signed Samuray up without him knowing to get Samuray in front of AAA people. Samuray was under the impression the talent contest – at least by the final – was set up for Daga to win, saying AAA officials wanted him specifically to work with Daga since he could do the style Daga likes to do and Daga would look like a star.

Rob has highlights of 04/13/12 CMLL and has updated his MOTYC list.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

Lucha Libre in Japan

Fabi Apache, Sexi Star, Lolita and Jennifer Blake are headed to WAVE for their AAA Reina de Reinas on 11/27. The Japanese promotion had previously announced the show, this is the first time the Mexican promotion has acknowledged it. The article is mostly talking about Fabi Apache’s training and previous time in Japan. WAVE also mentions Pimpinela and Fenix working on the show in a bonus match with CIMA, which hasn’t yet been announced by AAA.

Cage match, just not at all the one I thought. Warrior winning the Reyes del Aire means he’s a favorite to lose here.
