(This is the 200th post on this blog. Wow!)
Biggest news from Arena Mexico:
I can’t even begin to imagine WHY
Actually, the big non-Canek story out of Arena Mexico’s show this past Friday is that Perro Aguayo Sr. got involved in yet another post match attack on his son, who lost a main event trios via low blow against the Capos (teaming with Park and the sorta-tecnico Black Warrior). The big double hair/hair match is this week, but it seems pretty likely that match will just be the stepping stone for Perro Sr. to return to the ring and get his rematch against Universo.
Not much news on the undercard. Despite having to fight someone in such an outfit, Terrible did manage to beat Mascara Ano to build up their particpation in that hair match. Zumbido beat Virus in the Lighting match, which I would figure to set a SL title match down the road, but right now more directly leads to the Mexican Trios Title match next week.
Canek starts offically on 3/26, probably because they’ve already got this week’s card booked.
The 2004 Class of Guapo U starts wrestling for the people this Tuesday at Arena Coliseo. Opening match is Brazo de Plato Jr./Tigre Metalico/Leono vs Misterioso II/Lobo Vikingo/Koreano. Despite what had been said earlier, this is not an elimination from Guapo U match – at least to start, they’ll be doing these to see if the fans dig any one in particular (or, hopefully, they dig the one they want to push.)
In a completely lucha turn of events, Omar (as in “(mexico) Big Brother 2’s Omar! Call this number to vote for him!” and he apparently won) petioned to join Guapo U, but lost an entry match to Guapo U’s (the former blue monkey thing) mascot. Omar has decided not to give up on his dream of teaming with his hero Shocker.
Only one add to this week’s Arena Mexico card: Nosawa takes on Tigre Blanco in a bonus Lighting Match. Not sure if we should read into them doing these two weeks in a row.
Lucha Times will be updated later this week.
