As you probably saw, this week’s CMLL show was clipped down to a half hour. Time slot was clipped down to 2:00, so instead of losing a moment of the AAA Girls dancing, we only got the main event. Which was okay, but how they went from the referees missing Halloween’s cane shot to the commissioner over turning the fall to it being a NC instead of Infernales win by DQ (and take the belts) was a bit sketchy. And that’s even before next week…
Anyway, I was getting around to saying that the schedule for Lucha de Vuelta next week has the nomral 2:30 time slot, so the Capos/Lizmark/Rayo/Niebla match should be restorted there. (Intersting move having the Capos work as heel the week before Cien fights Pierroth). I plan to recap what aired later, but you know how it goes.
CMLL.com says the contracts were signed on 8/28 to confirm the double main event for 9/19 I talked about before: Tarzan Boy/Shocker and Pierroth/Violencia.
Top 3 matches for next Friday’s Arena Mexico show
– Perro Aguayo Jr, Shocker, Negro Casas vs Dr. Wagner, Rey Bucanero, Ultimo Guerrero
– Lizmark Jr., Mr. Niebla, Sagrado vs Violencia, Mascara Ano 2000, Apolo Dantes
– Cibernetico for the New CMLL Super Liegro (super light) Championship: Ricky Marvin, Tigre Blanco, Virus, all three Havana Brothers, Volador Jr., Neutron, Sombra De Plata, Loco Max, Super Comando, Sangre Azteca.
Final 2 advance to title match on 9/12
Is Zumbido hurt? Is he suddenly above this group? It’s really Spectacular Moments title, isn’t it? Havana Brothers aren’t due back till the 19th, so there’s time for one to win and drop it. I’d guess Marvin or Virus, but I dunno.
Super Parka (La Parka’s uncle) and El Hijo Del Santo have agreed to a mask/mask match in Tijuana on 10/10.
Last week’s WON says, Canek is out from AAA after publically complaining about how he’s being used, and the main event of the Atlanta lucha show has been changed to El Hijo Del Santo & La Parka vs Felino & Pentagon, as Santo doesn’t want to work a singles in his debut.
Atlantis’ stint in Michinoku Pro must’ve gone well, as he’s scheduled back there from 10/02 to 10/28.
Was Black Warrior going thru his Dragon Ball Z stage? Happens to the best of us…
