This Sunday, Galavision airs the Japan vs Mexico Gran Prix Cibernetico. Lineup for that match is: Virus/Mephisto/Averno/Blue Panther/Felino/Negro Casas/Dr. Wagner/Shocker vs (Katsushi) Takemura/Nosawa/Masada/CIMA/Don Fuji/SUWA/TARU/Ultimo Dragon. KrisZ‘s report back then had the Tory guys a little slow on the idea at first, but it being a good match with Takemura standing out. Tapes of that TV say about 20-25 minutes were shown, which means we probably lost 5-15 minutes, but that’s still pretty good.
Vague Bad Feeling That Probably Means Nothing: See, if I was a programming direction, I’d find it in slightly bad taste to put a wrestler named Sadam on television. And he’s in the other match on TV. And they skipped TV last time he should’ve been on. But then, they skipped TV when he wasn’t on. Who knows.
Infernales defated GdI this past weekend in the finals of the 16 Team #1 Contender Tournament, so they’ll take on Dr. Wagner Jr., Black Tiger and Universo 2000 for the CMLL Trios Titles. I can’t see them winning – where’d that leave the Mexican Trios Titles? – but I’m usually on target with lucha booking, so they have a decent shot. If I was booking, well, that might be the week Nicho decides to show up Arena Mexico.
That title shot is getting pushed back a week, as it’ll be part of their big 8/1 70th Anniversery Show (take 2 – of 3?). That card looks like this:
– Los Talibanes (Emilio/Scorpio/Bestia) vs Los Guapos (Shocker/Magica/Terrible) in a cage match. Everyone fights for ten minutes, then they start taking off. The last two can go for the pin/submission on each other, or take off. The last person left will lose their hair.
– Dr. Wagner, Black Tiger, Universo 2000 (c) vs Los Infernales (Satanico, Averno, Mephisto) for the CMLL Trios Titles
– Hijo Del Perro Aguayo [ArenaMex debut], Mr. Niebla, Hijo De Lizmark vs Damian 666, Halloween and Super Crazy
– Virus, Volador Jr., Ricky Marvin vs Los Havana Brothers [NJPW-US]
– Azumi Hyuga & Marcela vs Comando Bolshoi & Amapola [women’s match]
– Tigre Blanco & Neutron vs Loco Max & Hooligan
I’ll take Guapos, champs, Aguayo, Havanas, Marcela’s team, and Hooligan. Please do not use that advice for betting purposes.
