Tarzan pulled Rayo’s mask in the first fall and got caught, and Rayo pulled his own mask and threw it to Tarzan, who got caught again in the second fall. They meet in a singles match on Sunday.

CMLL will be running Gabriel Ramos Millan gym in Tolcua on 09/10, with two lucha matches, and also one greco-roman and one freestyle amateur match. They’re trying to drum up interest in the amateur style.

It’s Canek, not Canek Jr. who’s headlining IWRG this Thursday. The Mr. Person is most likely the new Pierroth II. I feel like I should start call the old one Pierroth Classic or Pierroth Original to keep this straight.

Avisman beat Gigolo Americano on Sunday for his hair. Avisman’s on a bit of a roll lately.

On Sunday, el Hijo del Santo puts his mask up in a six way cage stakes match (Diluvio Negro, Vikingo, Silver Star, Centurion Negro, Gato Volador) for Arena Solidarida’s 14th anniversary show.

CMLL (TUE) 08/15 Pachucha, Hidalgo Lineup [ova]
1) Lalo Guerrea & Krypton vs Concord & Tiger Man
2) Titan & Mensajero de la Muerte vs Braulio Flores & The Medic’s III
3) Maximo & Tigre Metalico vs La Mascara & Neutron
4) Brazos (Plata, Oro, Platino) vs Pierroth, Pierroth Jr., Hijo de Pierroth

Lizmark Jr. and Texano Jr. are scheduled to be in Japan from 09/01 to 09/12 for winning the G1. Which is just a normal tour which seems to have nothing to do with the G1 but whatever.

The pre-show opener from Sunday’s Coliseo show was Bacteria & Black Blade b el Jabali & Comando Mega in a one fall match of Tony Salazar trainees. I’m thinking “pre-show opener CMLL” should be considered the same as “first two matches IWRG” as far as names and gimmicks sticking; anyone they like is going to be repackaged probably.

Danger, listed as debuting next Saturday, is also a Tony Salazar trainee.

Pics of Troll and India Sioux have been added to the database. Halcon.net did a poster of the “New Generation” guys featured on the AAA undercard at their last taping; do we want a Baby Rap picture?

wiki update

Moved the Gran Alternativa over to wiki, with the 2005 results added. It’s a rough draft.

Did I do a Leyenda de Plata one before? Did I ask this before?

Things high on my priority list
– adapting the accented names to the roster database I currently have
– coming up with a script to take any submitted text and translate the anglo/unaccented names into the accented names, with optional wiki links
– finding a way to have wiki or a script autodiscover other articles; the ease of the wiki interface is completely pointless if we spend the saved time on putting brackets around everything; it’s a common problem so someone must’ve solved it already.
– putting together a good explaination for Rose City Rudo and anyone else who would like to
– adding rudo/tecnico designations
– fix vacant title issues with database
– snip the pictures I’ve got laying around and put them up

Plus a recap, and I should get back to Jose’s e-mail today. And maybe watch the Cubs.

This should be enough to keep me from watching RAW live…

08/14 news

Not much going on today. Ovaciones says Arena Neza will be running Thursday and Sundays, and Rey’s getting an NWA LH Title shot down the line.

Super Luchas’ cover features the Pierroth Family; of note, there’s now a Pierroth II (I’ve heard he’s X-Fly, but I’ve never seen him so I may be totally off.) The best part of the Picture is the face Pierroth Jr. is making.

Near the bottom of that cover, there’s a headline about Psicosis II being stripped of the Mexico MW Title. KrisZ notes that it’s the comissions doing, and it’ll be sent to CMLL.

Your G1 Update!: Lizmark apparently flew in to work one show (and appear on another) and flew back, because he’s listed on cards this week. Sucks to be him, but at least he won, beating Takashi Iizuka. O’Campo says Lizmark and Texano work in Japan starting September 8th, which would be part of NJPW’s Golden Fight Series 2005 tour.

Lineups on Monday.

08/13 news

CMLL (FRI) 08/12 Arena Mexico Results [ova]
1) Valiente & Sensei b Super Comando & Flecha
2) Dr. X & Nitro b Safari & Chamaco Valaguez Jr.
3) Dark Angel, Sahoria, Marcela b Princesa Sujei, Amapola, Raven Hiroka
4) Texano Jr. b La Mascara [G1 Climax Juniors]
Texano is headed to Japan – at some point, for something, involving some wrestling. I know that! Don’t know much more than that.
5) Universo 2000, Mascara Ano 2000, Mascara Magica b Dos Caras Jr., LA Park, Lizmark Jr.
6) Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Hector Garza, Damian 666, Halloween DQ Mistico, Atlantis, Negro Casas, Heavy Metal
That decision might not be exactly correct – a plethora of people wearing Pierroth masks ran in and attacked the rudos.

CMLL’s reopening Arena Neza with this lineup:

CMLL (THU) 08/18 Arena Neza Lineup [cmll]
1) Mini Olimpico & Tzuki vs Mini Pierroth & Espectrito
2) Tigre Blanco, Tigre Metalico, Sombre de Plata vs Hooligan, Mesala, Caligula
3) Blue Panhter, Satanico, Felino vs Emilio Charles, Mephisto, Sangre Azteca

The CMLL Women’s Championship, now listed as vacant, will be filled in a cibernetico. Included so far are the six women in the trios match this past week, La Nazi and India Sioux. The date for the match is undecided, but it’ll probably be between now and the Anniversary show (and Dark Angel’s surely going to win, but shhhh on that for now.)
