Recap from 11/27

What aired today:

12/17 Arena Mexico Show
Averno/Hijo de Pierroth/Pierroth Jr. vs Virus/Felino/Sagrado [coliseo, 12/14]
Nitro/Dr. X/Hooligan vs Safari/Felino/Volador [Mex Trios]

On schedule. Next week will be Best Of, which is now correctly listed.

CMLL 11/27 (#160)
AAA 11/27 (times and finishes only. Not that there was much else to talk about.)

This show was taking up 12% of my hard drive; wish I realized it was doing so before I lost stuff because of no room. At least I won’t lose more.

Maybe another recap tonight.

Congress Theatre Show tommorow

Just a reminder about the FMLL/Congress show tommorow. Not sure if I’m going to make it out; lots of things I do need to be getting done, and I don’t know if I’m going to have the time/energy to go into the city for a card where I only have one guy I really want to see.

OTOH, I could take the train and I’ve got books to read. This’ll be a last minute decision.

Edit: Uh, not going. And apparently not checking my HTML.

updated Arena Mexico card

03/04 (FRI) Arena Mexico Lineup
1) Valiente & Meteorix vs Polvora & Vaquero
2) Mascarita Sagrada/Bam-Bam/Tzuki vs Pierrothito/Espectrito/Mini Violencia
3) Satanico/Misteriso/Alan vs Emilio/Taguchi/Okumura
4) Vampiro vs Black Warrior [Lightning]
5) Porky/Negro/Mascara Magica vs Cien Caras/Mascara 2000/Apolo
6) Wagner/Mistico/Dos Caras Jr. vs Ultimo/Rey/Garza

Heavy Metal is also scheduled to appear, and I guess we’ll find out who owns the name pretty quickly.

Tonight is when they’re offically annoucing the major card lineup, which I didn’t say correctly before. I wonder if the change in Lightining Matches might mean an added match – or maybe Black Warrior just wants revenge for the last singles match between them.

03/18 Lineup, v0.9

Robert suggested I guess at the oh so big 03/18 card. I couldn’t control my excitement, so I peeked without guessing.

03/18 (FRI) Arena Mexico Dos Leyenda Show
1) TBA
2) TBA
3) Dr. Wagner, Super Porky, Black Warrior vs Universo 2000, Apolo Dantes, Satanico
4) Atlantis, Blue Panther, Negro Casas vs Rey Bucanero, Averno, Mephisto
5) LA Park, Shocker, Mistico vs Hector Garza, Ultimo Guerrero, Tarzan Boy
6) Perro Aguayo Jr. and Perro Aguayo Sr. vs Mascara Ano 2000 and Cien Caras

This is pretty eh for a big card, but I guess they’re banking everything on Perro Aguayo Sr.’s One Time Only (and we really really meant it, really) Return. Everything else is uninspired.

They’ll announce the full card tommorow.

Ovaciones throws out a Ultimo/Mistico mask match, which is hilariously insane.

Edit: It’s not the offical release yet, shouldn’t be 1.0, uh duh.

03/03 news

Reports have Heavy Metal out, Ciberenetico in, and me still being really dumb when it comes to AAA. Winners all around!

I’m guessing they mention him leaving from AAA because they expect for him to show up elsewhere soon? Ovaciones sure thinks teaming with Felino and Negro during the March big show makes sense. I’m sure he’ll be around for the Negro Casas Victory Tour.

02/22 (TUE) Arena Coliseo Results [KrisZ]
1) Mini Olimpico/Ultimo Dragonicto b Fire/Sombrita
2) Brazo de Plata Jr./StarMAN/Ultimo Vampiro b Caligula/Jeque/Messala

4) Emilio/Okumura/Taguchi b Felino/Safari/Sagrado

02/25 (FRI) Arena Mexico Results [KrisZ]
1) Tigre Blanco/Tigre Metalico b Koreano/Ramstein
2) Pierrothito/Espectrito/Mini Violencia b Bam-Bam/Mascarita Sagrada/Tzuki
3) Zumbido b Sangre Azteca [lightning]
4) Rey/Averno/Mephisto b Warrior/Negro/Satanico
5) Shocker/Atlantis/Panther b Perro/Garza/Tarzan

He’s UNSTOPPABLE

03/01 (TUE) Arena Coliseo Results [KrisZ]
1) Espiritu/Karisma/Molotov b Artillero/Flecha/Comando
2) Brazo de Plata Jr./Blanco/Metalico b Hooligan/Koreano/Ramstein
3) Safari/Sagrado/Virus b Dr. X/Nitro/Veneno
Ovaciones says best match of the night
4) Atlantis/Niebla/Shocker b Los Pierroths
5) Universo 2000 b Dr. Wagner Jr.
Two falls to none. Universo pulled Wagner’s mask before the match and now wants a UWA Title match.

On March 1st, Negro Casas got in on that “Averno makes you look good while defending your title belt” bit at Arena Aficion de Pachuca. I haven’t offically heard Averno lost, but I think it might be a safe bet.

03/04 (FRI) Arena Mexico Lineup
1) Valiente & Meteorix vs Polvora & Vaquero
2) Mascarita Sagrada/Bam-Bam/Tzuki vs Pierrothito/Espectrito/Mini Violencia
3) Zumbido vs Sangre Azteca [Lightning]
4) Satanico/Misteriso/Alan vs Emilio/Taguchi/Okumura
5) Porky/Negro/Mascara Magica vs Cien Caras/Mascara 2000/Apolo
he LIVES.
6) Wagner/Mistico/Dos Caras Jr. vs Ultimo/Rey/Garza

03/06 (SUN) Arena Coliseo Lineup
1) Mr. Rolling & Murcielago vs Terror Blanco & Magia Blanca
Mr. Rolling? I wonder where they borrowed this opener from
2) Sombra de Plata/Rayo Tapatio I & II vs Flecha/Caligula/Messala
3) Chris/Neutron/StarMAN vs Guerrero del Futuro/Ramstein/Reyes Veloz
4) Felino/Safari/Tony vs Mexico/Taguchi/Okumura
5) Panther/Rayo/Negro vs Canek/Emilio/Vampiro

Lucha Times

In the alternate world where Galavision follows a schedule, this is what would air

Saturday: Crazy 10p-12 midnight airing for the four who get the west coast feed.

Next show in order is actually the Year End spectacular. Double hair and Universo/Perro are on the schedule, but they usually skip the big matches, so that leaves a Santo/Casas/Mistico vs Fury of the North trios for sure, and whatever else they scourge up.

This would be a good week for AAA instead. 4 weeks since.

Sunday: All CMLL, all the time. I still haven’t gotten to this show, but the main looks good.

TLN: Ditto what Ryan said:

– Universo 2000, Apolo Dantes, Satanico vs Vampiro, Pierroth, Hijo del Perro Aguayo
– Rayo de Jalisco, Canek, Black Warrior vs Hector Garza, Tarzan Boy, Terrible

Altered Gala lineups

As mentioned elsewhere and by Eddie on the last post:

Gala skipped two weeks of tapings, and aired the 12/10 complete two hour show instead. Aired lineup

Dos Caras Jr./Dr. Wagner/Mr. Niebla vs Emilio/Tarzan/Canek [coliseo]
Rocky Romero vs Virus (c) [CMLL LH]
Universo/Cien/MascaraY2K vs Pierroth/Vampiro/Aguayo
Santo/Mistico/Dragon vs Ultimo/Rey/Olimpico

Good show, though I haven’t had a chance to watch much.

In other upcoming show news, the 12/24 and 01/01 tapings were confirmed as Best Of show – but Best Of Stuff That Never Made Air.

12/25/04
– Park/Shocker vs Rey/Ultimo [CMLL Tag]
– Santo vs Perro (08/13)
– Super Crazy vs Zumbido [hair/hair]

01/01/05
– Canek vs Universo vs Rayo vs Wagner [mask/mask/mask/mask] (09/17)
– Mistico/Felino/Volador Jr. vs Averno/Mephisto/Olimpico
– Torneo Gran Altenativa (08/20)

I’ll try to clear up the listings later. Who knows what’ll actually air next week. The good part about the skip is there are worst weeks they could’ve skipped.

I should put together some Sin Limite de Tiempo listings at some point too. But maybe only if I can mockingly call it CMLL Velocity.

Ovaciones webpage is now http://www.ovaciones.com; the .mx address doesn’t send you there for whatever reason.

lucha times

Saturday’s GALA schedule is back to normal times. Nothing extraordinary on the CMLL lineup, just three trios matches over current issues.

Note we haven’t had an any AAA action in four weeks, so don’t be surprised if there’s a change of plans. Not sure enough to promise, but I’m kinda thinking there probably will be at least an hour of it.

Lucha De Vuelta gets the spilt treatment this week, due to the finals and third place game of last week UCAF tournament. CMLL’s got the Leyenda de Azul Cibernetico (which was okay) and stellar trios match in names but saddled with a WWE CW match length. AAA has a taping of date unknown (and I really would like to know), with Pena throwing a bunch of his newer gimmicks in a trios match, and Abismo facing Cibernetico in the main.

TLN looks to be getting mostly Arena Coliseo action this week.

03/06 Congress lineup

FMLL’s announced a partial card for the 03/06 Congress Show.
(It’s pretty clear in saying that’s the next show at the theatere, though they still list a show this weekend on the website. Baaad website.)

Main: Mil Mascaras/Super Parka vs Rey Misterio (Sr.)/Satanico
Semi: Lizmark/Principe Franky/TBA vs Poision/Principe Azteca/Rudy Escobedo
Tercero: Sombre Vengador vs Shamu

The website says “and one more match”, but if you spell tercero correctly* and translate it, it means “third”. It’s not a big deal, as long as everyone in the unnamed matches has pants that do not fall down during the match, for instance.

Bigger news is we’ve got a whale in lucha libre! Can you submit a whale? You can’t beat them in I Quit matches.

* see thing about typos being funny (when they’re not me)
