A few news and notes:
Interesting result from 2/17 at Area Coliseo. Mephisto beat Satanico in a four way match (Averno & Negro Casas were the other two participants). After the match, Mephisto challenged Satanico to a CMLL Welterweight Title match.
I can’t find the result, but I’ll go out on a limb and say el Santo kept his mask in the mascara contra mascara match against Hijo del Cobarde. Here’s a (slightly outdated) look at Santo’s history in stip matches.
The Do FIXER stable (Magnum TOKYO, Genki Horiguchi, Ryo Saito, Susumu Yokosuka, and K-NESS) from Toryumon will be coming in sometime in May to do some work for EMLL. Not sure how many shows they’re doing, but they’re also working for Toryumon Mexico and IWRG.
In the most mind boggling match in a while, at the 2/13 XLUM show in Tijuana, the main event was a ladder match between Black Tiger, Dr. Wagner, and Pierroth Jr. Yes, Pierroth in a ladder match. Even better, there was $5000 in US money suspended over the ring. Black Tiger ended up winning only to be attacked by Nicho and Rey Mysterio Sr. Wagner made the save.
I leave with with a quote from this week’s Figure Four Weekly:
“Pierroth announced he would be forming his own his own university to compete with Shocker’s Guapo University. I can only imagine the folks that would choose Pierroth’s school over Shocker’s.”
