Myzteziz, double title match tonight

Where did the name Myzteziz come from? AAA says it’s a combination of Mistico and Genesis. Joaquin explained AAA only used the Mistico name to build interest in him but never planned on using it permanently. It sounds like AAA feels they used the Mistico in safe, legal ways, but using that name and mask on the Verano de Escandalo seems like it’s going to end up getting AAA in trouble. I’m surprised they didn’t replace that poster from their website with a new one with the correct name.

Myzteziz said he will still wrestle on indy show as Sin Cara. He believes he legally owns the Sin Cara name, and may gave it to one of his brothers if he sticks with the Myzteziz name. (Please don’t do that.) +LuchaTV has a video interview with Mytzteziz and R de Rudo has footage of the press conference. The logo and font AAA is using for the name is stylish.

AAA actually announced two dates for Ring & Rock StAArs 2 and the Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta. They’ll be there first from July 4th to 6th, and then against September 5th and 6th. That second one should be after AAA’s started taping in the US; some of the group may need a few day vacation at a resort hotel at that point. Cibernetico, Sexy Star, Silver King, Angelico, Taya, Elegido, Pentagon Jr., Jack Evans, Hijo del Fantasma, Steve Pain, Daga, Mascarita Sagrada, Fenix, and Faby Apache are listed as appearing.

Today’s CMLL show is headlined by a rare championship versus championship match, though it’s not a rare face off between the two champions. Sombra puts the NWA Historic Middleweight Championship on the line versus Volador Jr. and his NWA Historic Welterweight Championship, with the idea that one of the rivals will end up with both belts at the end of the night. That’s not what has happened

2014-06-06 Arena México: Volador Jr. © vs La Sombra © [NWA WELTER, NWA MIDDLE]
(db 80s/90s results have more holes than Swiss cheese, but you get the idea)

CMLL has champions versus champions matches every year – it’s the CMLL Universal tournament – but this one might go a bit longer. CMLL’s preview of the show points out Rush & La Mascara are likely to get involved, and a double disqualification finish seems the most likely outcome. Should be a fun time to get there.

The rest of the card is pretty packed as well. This appears to be a CMLL’s attempt at running a major show right before the World Cup is all anyone talks about. (CMLL’s not promoted it as such, because it’s CMLL, and it’s running against Mexico/Portugal so it probably won’t work too well.) Titan has a rough night. He’s stuck teaming with the disagreeable Rush & La Mascara, and he’s also booked in San Luis Potosi tonight. Not sure how that’s going to work. The two En Busca de un Idolo matches are Cavernario vs Cachorro and Hechicero vs Dragon Lee. Cachorro and Hechicero figure to win to get the whole field to 1-1. Cachorro has to win to keep any chance of advancing. Ultimo Guerrero and Atlantis are pushed down to the tercera, los Princesas continue feuding in the second match. The overfilled card puts Raziel and Cancerbero all the way in the opener – how unlikely to see those two men in a primera!

LuchaMania Monterrey says Hechicero will be on the 07/05 show. Opponent to be announced.

Segunda Caida watches Dr. Wagner Jr. & Marco Corleone vs Atlantis & Último Guerrero and 05/10 Lucha Azteca.

El Hijo del Santo’s column is basically about how people are unfair to him so he’s unfair right back. Santo, in the middle of a union pitch, writes Marisela and Dorian “los más grandes explotadores y asesinos de la lucha libre” who should be using their money not in lawsuits (against him) but on a legal team to bail Charly Manson out of jail. His column is preempted for the World Cup the next few weeks, so Santo did a fine job of getting in many columns of grouching at one time.

Viva el Hoy (Chicago) has an interview with El Hijo del Santo. He won’t like it, they list his name in first paragraph. Hijo del Santo says he’s planning his farewell show for August. If that happens, and Santo’s timelines are iffy at best, that sets up for a very busy month. CMLL has their show on 08/01, TripleMania is said to be 08/17 and Santo’s show would be somewhere along the same time. The article says Santo is actually in Chicago this Sunday for a similar conversation; maybe I’ll make it out there, though it does look like a limited amount of tickets are available.

Laredo Kid is wrestling for the kids.

Lucha Libre in Japan

06/06 NJPW: Matt Jackson b Mascara Dorada [BOSJ, match 7]
Mascara Dorada finished 3-4, like every CMLL wrestler in a tournament ever. Mascara Dorada is on the opener of the tour ending show, as always. At least I don’t have to give NJPW money.

Lineup

IWRG (SUN) 06/15/2014 Arena Naucalpan
1) Black Terry, Imposible, Metaleon vs Guerrero Mixtico, Hip Hop Man, Tony Rivera
2) Dr. Cerebro, Golden Magic, Pantera vs Astro Rey Jr., Canis Lupus, Eterno
3) Apolo Estrada Jr. & El Hijo del Diablo © vs Oficial 911 & Oficial AK47 [IWRG IC TAG]
Gringos VIP are champions, first defense.
4) Máscara Sagrada, Relámpago, Súper Nova vs Demon Clown, Trauma I, Trauma II
5) Dr. Wagner Jr. & Hijo De Dos Caras vs LA Park & Pirata Morgan

Dos Caras Sr. will be honored on the show. The poster says the luchadors will be giving away their masks after their matches; I’m not sure how that works but it sounds pleasant. Not idea if Astro Rey Jr. is meant to be a tecnico or rudo here – his last four appearances are tecnico, rudo, tecnico, rudo.

06/20 AAA TV Lineup (Puebla)

06/20 lineup

AAA TV (FRI) 06/20/2014 Gimnasio Miguel Hidalgo, Puebla, Puebla
1) Faby Apache, Ludxor, Venum vs El Apache, Mamba, Sexy Star
2) Aerostar, Alebrije, Niño Hamburguesa vs Carta Brava Jr., Fresero Jr., Súper Fly
3) Australian Suicide, Drago, Joe Lider vs Daga, Eterno, Steve Pain
4) Angélico, Electroshock, Fénix vs Hijo del Fantasma, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Pentagón Jr.
5) ?, Cibernético, Psycho Clown vs Averno, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Zorro

Air Date: 06/28.

Found again on the Aerostar Fan facebook. Someone’s going to get a stern word in the morning.

Zorro’s disappeared for almost this entire cycle – just appearing on the show after Rey de Reyes. Not sure why, but he’s back here. The tecnico surprise is probably really Myzteziz this time. 

Fourth and third mix up some of the usual midcarder. Semimain has Fenix and Fantsama again, so they’ll get to fight even if AAA won’t book their title match. Drago hasn’t been around a lot but should be fun against La Anarquia.

Venum and Ludxor are in all the openers. Since they are, some of the guys usually in the openers move up a spot – there the Aerostar/Super Fly feud, which would be two tapings in a row. This Alebrije wrestles primarly in Puebla, which might be why he’s on the show here. He hasn’t been on since lsat summer. He was added to the Mexican Powers then, not sure if he’s still meant to be there.

Next taping is 06/27 in Queretaro. 8 weeks of TV until TripleMania.

AAA-Televisa: Consejo vs Psycho Circus, another appearance by the mystery guy. I wonder if they’ll start using the name on this TV show or if they had the announcers not even say it since it was going to be a secret for 12 more hours. AAA seemed to be taping a sit down interview to air at some point.

Televisa has the World Cup. It doesn’t appear to affect the AAA show (so far!) but there’s no UTDN airings next week.

Myzteziz, Fuerza Guerrera/Golden Magic, Mistico on Mistico

@ Antonio_Fierro

At a press conference to talk about the upcoming AAA show at the Hard Rock Casino in Puerto Vallarta, AAA introduced Mistico/Sin Cara as a newly contracted AAA luchador under a new name: Myzteziz. He’s got a new outfit, which has a few elements of his old ones.

The name appears to be pronounced Miztiz, though we’ll be hearing it often to be sure. One easy way to remember how to spell the name: slam your head on your keyboard, and you’re there. It seems way too complicated, just ugly to the eye and one people are going to struggle to remember, but maybe they’ll get it over on TV.

AAA owns it in Mexico – check expediente numbers 1483972, 1483974, and 1483976, all filed back on 05/08 – but not yet in the US. Myzteziz said he’d still be using Mistico/Sin Cara on non-AAA shows, so he hasn’t really fixed his long term issue if he ends up falling out with AAA. Though he may have more problems than a name if he falls out with AAA.

(The Ring & Rock 2 show is happening July 4th thru July 6th. AAA tapes in Xalapa on 07/03, so the show is unlikely to be a taping this time around.)

IWRG (WED) 06/04/2014 Arena Naucalpan [The Gladiatores]
1) Black Angel (IWRG) & Fly Boricua b Black Niko & Voltar
Main shows debuts for all except Niko.
2) Matrix Jr. & Muerte Infernal b Aramis & Sky Ángel
Aramis’ debut. Muerte Infernal’s first match since 2011 (so it could be a new one.)
3) Anubis Black & Zurdog b Látigo & Metaleon
4) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro b Guerrero Mixtico, Hip Hop Man, Tony Rivera
5) Bombero Infernal, Canis Lupus, Fuerza Guerrera b Black Terry, Golden Magic, Relámpago
straight falls for the rudos, Fuerza catching Golden in a submission by surprise. Golden Magic, the champion, demanded Fuerza Guerrera face him in a title match.

Fuerza Guerrera blew off the idea of a title match in a post match interview, but did sound like he’d do a super libre one.

CMLL Informa had Angel de Oro, surly La Sombra and Volador Jr. on last night. Angel de Oro talked about his return, while Sombra and Volador each talked about Friday’s title match (though Sombra was more into getting over his new character.) The show ended with Mistico being brought out to repeat the message from the end of the last show – this is the real and only Mistico, and anyone else using that name is fake. It feels like watching a totalitarian regime try to change history, except if the regime had no power at all.

Last night’s Tercera Caida had a lot of highlights and Aeroboy as guest. They talk to Aeroboy for 20 more minutes after the show, and they’re giving away a t-shirt.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

Rob has highlights of July 2001 CMLL.

Kratoz, Erik Ortiz, Tony Rodriguez and Kaientai in a four way match has been added to the LuchaMania show.

Discovery and friends were putting on matches at Chicago restaurant conference.

Lucha Libre in Japan

06/05 NJPW: BUSHI b Mascara Dorada [BOSJ, match 6]
Dorada drops to 3-3. He’s kind of alive – if there’s a big tie, he would be part of it – but he’s probably done. He’s got a match with Matt Jackson tomorrow to wrap up his block, and then will get in a tag match on the 8th.

06/04 AAA TV Results (Celaya)

AAA TV (WED) 06/04/2014 Explanada de las Antiguas Instalaciones de la Feria, Celaya, Guanajuato [AAA]
1) Aerostar, Ludxor, Venum b Carta Brava Jr., Fresero Jr., Hijo de Pirata Morgan
Aerostar beat Carta Brava Jr. with a top rope huracanrana
2) Taya Valkyrie b Sexy Star, La Jarochita, La Magnifica, Mary Apache, Cinthia Moreno, Sexy Lady [Reina De Reinas, #1 Contenders]
Order of elimination: Cinthia Moreno (La Magnifica), Sexy Lady (Sexy Star), La Jarochita (La Magnifica), Sexy Star (La Magnifica & Mary Apache), La Magnifica (Mary Apache), Maya Apache (Taya Valkyrie), leaving Taya as the winner. Taya faces Faby Apache at some future date.
3) Daga, Eterno, Steve Pain b Crazy Boy, Joe Lider, Niño Hamburguesa
Daga submitted Crazy Boy with the mata leon. Crazy Boy went out on a stretcher.
4) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown © b Hijo del Fantasma, Silver King, Texano Jr. [AAA TRIOS]
Monsther Clown beat Silver King. The Psycho Circus 7th defense (and 5th versus Consejo)
5) Averno, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Parka Negra b Cibernético, La Parka, Monsther Clown
Averno again was the rudo surprise. Monsther Clown was the exciting tecnico surprise, and he unsurprisingly lost to Averno. As on the Chiapas tapings, Eterno & Steve Pain ran in after the match only for The Mystery Luchador to make the save and clear the ring. He wore a Sin Cara mask this time.

Air Date: 06/07 – it’s going to be a quick turnaround.

Still no name for Mistico/Sin Cara, which means the bizarre situation where everyone knows who the “mystery” guy is except storyline AAA continues on. Even the guy who possibly made the decision not to refer to this man by name can refer him to by name, but only on Twitter and not if he turns up on screen again. Things like AAA sneaking in a “sin rostro” reference and Ciberentico doing comedic Twitter monologues trying to solve the mystery are amusing, but it’s a bit absurd that no one would put a name to him after three straight weeks of this. This is AAA slow playing a storyline, as usual, and the feedback on Twitter and Facebook was a bit mocking AAA for not advancing that small issue. Maybe they’ll get to it on Verano de Escandalo.

Maybe there needs to be another reference instead of “Misterioso Luchador”, because the entire point of using this man is he’s the least mysterious and one of the most well known luchadors in the country. His reasons for being there are being presented as mysterious, but he is not.

Showing up in the Sin Cara mask suggests Mistico/Sin Cara’s bit in Arena Neza about wanting to be Sin Cara may have been planned, or at the very least was smoothed over after the fact. AAA let him be Sin Cara, after all.

Unsure why AAA couldn’t just put another person on the bus to Celaya instead of having Monster Clown work twice. They’ve been doing that with the mystery person bit and it doesn’t really help anything.

Psycho Clowns winning the trios titles sure suggests they’re not breaking or replacing Psycho Clown any time soon, but again this is a promotion that can go months without title matches anyway – Psycho Circus can be champions without really teaming that much.

I dunno what the deal is was with Daga, but it sure doesn’t appear there’s any problems now. They’re even making sure not to use him as Pain/Eterno cannon fodder at the end of the show.

No hint as to where Taya gets a title shot. There about 10 weeks until TripleMania. They could wait all the way to then – for Taya/Faby and Daga/Aero/? – but a one on one midcard match would seem out of place on recent TripleManias.

Next taping is 06/07, Verano de Escandalo in Orizaba.

CMLL (TUE) 06/03/2014 Arena México [CMLL]
1) Flyer & Leono b Camorra & Espanto Jr.
2) Black Panther, Gallo, Súper Halcón Jr. DQ Arkángel de la Muerte, Artillero, Súper Comando
Straight falls, Gallo beating Arkangel in the first and Arkangel pulling Gallo’s mask in the second.

Triton 450 splash for the win.
5) Ángel de Oro, Fuego, Rey Cometa b Kamaitachi, Morphosis, Rey Escorpión
Tecnicos took 1/3 in Angel de Oro’s return to Arena Mexico.
6) La Máscara, Stuka Jr., Valiente b Boby Zavala, Mephisto, Terrible
Tecnicos took 1/3.

The band Las Victimas del Dr. Cerebro was in attendance.  No angles, unless Zeuxis getting a title shot against Estrellita is actually happening – no title challenges yet.

CMLL (TUE) 06/03/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]
1) El Divino b Magnum
2) Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Violencia, Pierrothito b Astral, Eléctrico, Meteoro
Meteoro replaced Dragoncito, who’s missed consecutive shows. Rudos took 1/3.
3) Dragón Rojo Jr., Ephesto, Olímpico b Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Smaker
Rudos took 2/3.
4) Máximo & Super Porky b Kráneo & Pólvora
Polvora replaced Misterioso. Tecnicos took 2/3.
5) Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Último Guerrero b Atlantis, Blue Panther, Volador Jr.
Rudos took 2/3.
6) Rush b Negro Casas
Rush won a quick first fall, Negro took the second with a half crab, and Rush took the third for the win.

Not a lot of details on Rush/Casas.

AAA has two TV tapings this week, starting tonight in Celaya. The card is in a weird place; it’ll air hours before Verano de Escandalo, but it’s mostly a lame duck show with that card not announced. As with all recent AAA TV tapings, the main event has mystery men listed on both sides. Averno is likely on the rudo side. Mistico/Sin Cara/whatever will likely make an appearance before the night is over, but it seems likely his first match will take place at Verano de Escandalo and someone else will be on the tecnico side tonight. The semifinal may reveal some future plans – Consejo gets yet another shot at Psycho Circus and trios championship. There’s a thought the Psycho Circus will lose the trios titles, to set up Psycho Clown being spun off onto his own and being replaced in the trio. Psycho Clown really doesn’t need to team regularly with his partners, because AAA doesn’t have frequent title defenses, but a new Psycho Circus ultimately winning the trios titles back would legitimize the new member. In the short term, Texano might get a win so it looks like he has a chance at Verano de Escandalo.

There are seven women in the Reina de Reinas title shot match, but there’s only six who care about winning it. Sexy Star explained she doesn’t care about getting a title shot, because she feels she’s still champion since she never lost. If someone wants to give her a direct title match, that’s fine, but she doesn’t feel she needs to earn one. Maybe she’ll help Taya instead?

Mistico/Sin Cara, Blue Demon Jr., Averno, Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Cibernetico, Villano IV, Psycho Circus, Daga and Chessman are being advertised for the 07/03 AAA TV taping in Xalapa.

CMLL has another edition of CMLL Informa today at 5pm on Terra with Volador Jr., La Sombra and Angel de Oro. Hopefully not Volador and Sombra at the same time, that won’t end well.

I recorded the debut RadioCMLL show for some reason. It’s about an hour (with two random breaks) talking with Rey Bucanero and Shocker.

R de Rudo writes about people critical of how Super Bolido’s dislocated elbow was treated it.

Arturo Beristain talks about training luchador and still giving advice after his students make the CMLL roster. Tanque Infernal, Luzebl Jr., Sucesor, Magnetico and Palomo Rouse are mentioned as training with him currently.

There’s a plan to spread the word of lucha libre by everyone wearing a mask on the Mexico City Metro on September 14.

Ricky Marvin wants the Veracruz government – and the governor himself – to give more support to lucha libre in his home state. This is just billed as Ricky Marvin, luchador, but I think he might be promoting shows as well.

Dralion vs Arez has been added to the 07/05 LuchaMania show.

Segunda Caida reviews Blue Panther, Marco Corleone, Negro Casas vs Atlantis, Mephisto, Toscano

There’s a benefit show for Kaleth on Friday in Tulancingo.

Antrax is now training luchadors in Fresnillo, was the short lived Super Nova in Guadalajara?

Diamante Azul wants a heavyweight title shot and hopes to main event an Anniversary show.

Aeroboy will be in CZW’s Torment of Death on 06/14.

Kaiser Sports has an one two three part interview with CMLL edecan Ana Karina. She’s working on a reggae album.

Lucha Libre in Japan

06/04 NJPW: Ricochet b Mascara Dorada [BOSJ, match 5]
Mascara Dorada is 3-2, six points, actually tied for first, but he probably needed to get this one to advance. He’s got BUSHI tomorrow and Matt Jackson the day after to finish up.

CMLL (TUE) 06/10/2014 Arena México
1) Molotov & Robin vs Cholo & Inquisidor
2) Aéreo, Bam Bam, Stukita vs Mercurio, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Warrior
3) Pegasso, Rey Cometa, Tritón vs Misterioso Jr., Sangre Azteca, Skándalo
4) Gallo vs Arkángel de la Muerte [lightning]
5) Ángel de Oro, Fuego, Sagrado vs Boby Zavala, Tiger, Vangellys
6) Titán, Valiente, Volador Jr. vs Ephesto, Mephisto, Puma

Main event looks like fun.

The Arkangel/Gallo feud moves to the match that doesn’t air. This is a big development for the 1000-1500 people who go to Tuesday shows.

Why is Pequeno Warrior on all the cards?

No Esterllita/Zeuxis.

They actually teamed up the evil trio instead of spilling them among different matches. Good job!

Asturiano ended up with an arm injury, then Warrior pulled Asturiano’s mask and beat him.
3) Kamaitachi, Puma, Shigeo Okumura b Rey Cometa, Stigma, Stuka Jr.
Rudos took 1/3
4) Kráneo, Morphosis, Ripper b Ángel de Oro, Blue Panther, Titán
Rudos took 2/3. Angel de Oro returns with a loss.
5) Pólvora, Rey Escorpión, Shocker b Atlantis, La Sombra, Marco Corleone
Shocker snuck in a foul on Sombra for the win.

Asturiano versus Pequeno Black Warrior appears to be the Arena Puebla Anniversary main event, which seems very unkind to the Arena Puebla fans. Asturiano’s very good, but he could use better competition.

CMLL’s Tuesday show has nothing in particular. The CMLL preview hypes the return of Angel de Oro, who actually returned last night but close enough. His match, with Rey Cometa & Fuego versus Rey Escorpion, Morphosis and Kamaitachi, might end up being the best on the show. Main event is La Mascara, Valiente, Stuka versus Terrible, Mephisto, and Boby Zavala.

The more interesting CMLL show today is over in Guadalajara, with a Negro Casas versus Rush main event. That should air on 06/14, but the Guadalajara shows have had short edited matches the last couple of weeks. This is their second singles match – the last was in November – and while they still tease a hair match occasionally, it doesn’t appear to be in the plans any time soon.

Sin Cara, Argenis, Black Warrior and Averno refused to wrestle on Sunday in Campeche due to issues with the promoters. It appears they were working a two match weekend swing in the area, but the promoter didn’t pay them after Saturday and they walked out when he still didn’t pay him on Sunday. The local luchadors on the show are taking up a legal complaint, saying the promoters didn’t pay the top guys for their hotels or the transportation. The promoters are said to owe 150,000 pesos ($11,598) to various people in total. It was inevitable the Sin Cara post-WWE  tour around Mexico would run into promoters who were in over their head, but it’s still disappointing when it happens.

Taya says she and Sexy Star will work together to make sure one of La Sociedad will win the Reina de Reinas title shot match.

El Angel of Mazatlan retired with a win.

There’s a lucha libre photo exhibition in Xalapa starting on the 7th.

5) Gallo © vs Boby Zavala [FULL HEAVY]
Gallo is champion, first defense
6) La Sombra, Rey Cometa, Titán vs Cavernario, Dragón Rojo Jr., Mr. Águila

Gallo seems a good bet to keep the title, since he’s still feuding with Arkangel half the time.  Mr. Aguila has almost only been working Sunday Arena Coliseo Guadalajara shows of late, which seem the least valuable to work. That may just be skewed due to the lack of TV, but it has seemed as though Aguila’s previous issues got a response in CMLL’s booking.

Sombra/Shocker should be interesting. As will Sombra versus whoever replaces Shocker.
