Lucha Libre USA #5 (08/13/2010)

taped 08/07/2010

Pequeno Halloween for the win

The weakest in-ring show so far? Not that it was a big surprise: Lizmark/Solid wasn’t supposed to be a good match (though I couldn’t figure out why it was supposed to be a life threatening beating), and the mixed tag couldn’t be a good match. The opening trios was OK, but nothing special.

Knowing the taping results, I can understand why they had three straight segments dealing with rudos beating up tencicos (Marco reacting to Lizmark beating Solid, Rellik/Malice, Team Evil Mexico vs PR Powers), because they’re setting up bits for the next two weeks, but they were a bit much stacked up together like they did.

This was the first taping after the show started airing, and I wonder if it might be the first commentary taping since the first reviews came in. Lalo and Nigel were not good, but I don’t recall a moment where I wanted to lunge thru my TV and strangle someone. A marked improvement!

There’s still doing things where they expect the people watching the show to make big leaps in logic the show has forgotten. Not just the Big News!! that may have been the tournament brackets, but no one ever makes it particularly clear that Lizmark Jr.’s letter was about facing Solid in the tournament. The first time I watched this, I thought it was actually something about Sydistiko, since Lizmark was yelling about him and they ought to be writing him out of the show about now.

I would watch a show about Pequeno Halloween. This may be that show, everyone else is just slow in figuring out.

Perros, AAA/IWRG, no Rayo vs Atlantis (yet?), Sexy Star

PdM (TUE) 08/17 Arena Aficion [Estrellas del Ring]
1) Konami, Pesadilla, Ragde b Caricia, Diva Salvaje, Guerrero Negro
2) Celestial, el Ángel, Tony Rivera b Bestia, Maldito Jr., X-Fly
3) Damián 666, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Halloween b Hijo de LA Park, Hijo del Lizmark, Súper Nova

Looks like a strong fan turnout. All matches actually ended with a pinfall, which may be a first for this promotion. Perro got Nova in the main event with a little help from Halloween.

Today’s the big AAA taping at IWRG’s place. Well, big for IWRG probably. AAA’s VP of Creative Talent tweeted last night about going on vacation for a week, so I’m thinking he’s skipping out on this one. (Go to the IWL show, pretty sure that guy can’t afford to leave.) AAA notes this is Konnan’s first show back in Arena Naucalpan with AAA since 1996, though he did work there a year later with Promo Azteca.

The big match of the taping is AAA tag team champions Silver King & Ultimo Gladiador vs IWRG tag team champions Hijo de Cien Caras & Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., with only the AAA belts on the line. In the undercard, El Brazo teams up with Decnnis & Billy Boy after turning down their offer to join the Militia last week. That’s probably not an offer you’re allowed to turn down.

According to’s latest lineup update, the Rayo vs Atlantis singles match for Sunday is off. It’s now a trios, La Máscara, Místico, Rayo de Jalisco Jr. vs Atlantis, Mr. Niebla, Volador Junior. I wonder if they just decided to save that match for an Arena Mexico show?

Making the rounds on the internet is this note from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter about Sexi Star’s WWE tryout

As for Sexy Star, they thought her work was terrible, her English was terrible and they also thought she was overweight and wasn’t pretty enough without the mask. John Laurinaitis told the officials at FCW that when it comes to hiring women, the standard is if they aren’t pretty enough to be in Playboy, then the company wouldn’t want them.

Harsh. It’s not actually news that the WWE’s standards for women is weird and dumb – picking people based on how they look in still pictures is not the best plan when their job is to move – but it’s been this way for a long time. The true awfulness here is they took $1,000 of Sexi Star’s money, then told others about how little they thought of her. If people are going to tell me off, I prefer not to pay for it. All considered, Sexi handled this well on Twitter.

In other popular stories which probably mean little, the Rudos de Neza fan club were treated badly by CMLL security for chanting profanity. I have the sneaking suspicion there is more to this story and I don’t think think CMLL is necessarily in the wrong here.

IWL will be giving away free tickets to the first 100 people who show up. Seeing as the guesses were 100 paid for the first show, they might as well just make it a total free show.

we take requests/ACM

AAA has a kid’s web game where they can wear prizes by playing simple games.

The Latin Lover show in Mazatlan with main CMLL & Guadalajara undercard luchadors is tonight. That newspaper usually posts recaps, so there will probably be more about it in a day or two. There had been talk of Latin Lover being on the Anniversary card, but he wasn’t listed on the card CMLL sent out yesterday.

Ultimo Guerrero, told Shocker wants a shot at the heavyweight championship again, says he’s beaten Shocker five times and Shocker has brought his father as a second all those times, so maybe Shocker should bring his mom when he loses for a sixth.

El Siglo de Torreon has an interview with Angel de Oro & Angel de Plata. Mostly the same career bio as the last time thru.

One of the most striking exhibits at the Tulancingo fair was a new statue of El Santo.

R de Rudo has a video interview with Charly Manson, after his IWL loss.

the UK Sun has the usual article about the Cholitas.

Ras de Lona #111 is up.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

08/21-22 Lucha Times


AAA-US: 187/Tiger vs Legion, Electro/Silver vs Wagner/Park, and the start of the Militia.

52MX: Rush vs Loco Max. No spoilers!

LATV: Angels vs Tuareg and semimain of the anniversary show, hmmm. LATV is back on my cable system, and I’ll have last week’s episode with next week’s TV.

GDL: Masks vs hairs.

MW: PR Flyers vs Purpura/Magno, Malice/Rellik + an open challenge from RJ Brewer


CMLL: Sombra/Dorada/Mistico vs Lyger/Niebla/Volador, plus Strong Man returns and that same Invaders/Peste Negra match.

AAA-MEX: first part of Verano de Escandalo.

FOX: Atlantis/Garza/Bucanero vs Porky/Mistico/Rayo

C3: round 2 of the minis bicentennial cibernetico

Puebla: Mistico/Charly

ACM: top 2 from this past Sunday? That’d include the six way women’s match, which is probably something.

Perros: no clue


CMLL-TFN: This is suddenly accurate! Caligula/Guerrero Maya (who’d figure Caligula would have the higher spot on the card a year later?), Poder Mexica vs Maximo/Mictlan/Rouge, and more of Yujiro/Warrior feud.

09/03 Arena Mexico Lineup (77th Anniversary Show)

CMLL (FRI) 09/03 Arena Mexico
1) Dark Angel, Luna Mágica, Marcela vs Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sujei
2) Ángel de Oro, Delta, Stuka Jr. vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Pólvora, Skándalo
3) Blue Panther, La Máscara, Máscara Dorada vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca
4) Felino, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero vs Charly Manson, Héctor Garza, Mr. Águila
5) Atlantis vs Jushin LygerÚltimo GuerreroAvernoMephistoMr. NieblaHisteriaPsicosisMísticoLa SombraEl AlebrijeVolador Jr.EphestoOlímpico [cage, mask]

Reforma has it first.

Possibly not a final lineup; still plenty of time to add a couple people to the cage match for even 16 (in binary, anyway.) Note that Mascara Dorada has a match, and Rayo de Jalisco Jr. does not.

There appears to be a Peste Negra vs Invaders feud going on, and may be in high gear by the time of this show, so the semimain has some purpose. It’s a usual CMLL big show card of one important match, one semimportant match, and other matches to get people on the card.

It does look like a pretty strong card. Every match has a chance of being in the win column.

Pierrothito, Mistico beats Lyger, Annivesary tickets

CMLL (TUE) 08/17 Arena Mexico [SuperLuchas, Cesar]
1) Horus & Tigre Blanco b Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Diamante, Fabián el Gitano, Metro b Cancerbero, Raziel, Virus
3) Pierrothito b Bam Bam, Pequeño Warrior, Último Dragoncito, Astral, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Halcón, Aereo [cibernetico, Torneo Bicentenario]
4) Averno, Mephisto, Vangelis b Blue Panther, Máximo, Toscano
5) La Máscara, Máscara Dorada, Shocker b Atlantis, Dragón Rojo Jr., Negro Casas

Dorada surprised Negro with a rollup to take the main event.

Rudos won the semimain clean.

Pierrothito moved out of the way of a guillotine leg drop and made Bam Bam give up to his usual submission. This is a big surprise; Pierrothito doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense in the main division, but it’ll be him and Demus in the finla next week. Ultimo Dragonicto & Pequeno Warrior eliminated each other.

CMLL (TUE) 08/17 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Javier Cruz Jr. b Titanio
2) Idolo & Metatrón b Drago & Metalik
3) Hierro & Magnum b Malefico & Rey Trueno
4) Hijo del Fantasma, Rotoporky, Sagrado b Ephesto, Felino, Terrible
5) Místico b Jushin Lyger

Lyger took the first with a brainbuster, Mistico took the second with a roll up, and the third with La Mistica.

CMLL announced the prices for the anniversary show. The prices they gave out on Twitter are not exactly the ticket prices listed on TicketMaster, but those include the handling fees. With those, the tickets run from 88 and 821 pesos ($7 to $65 US Dollars).

Electroshock says Heavy Metal is a guy living in the past, and Electro doesn’t need a guitar to beat him. Guess the feud isn’t over.

Silver King & Ultimo Gladiador say they will not let the AAA Tag Team titles fail in the hands of “nobodys” from Arena Naucalpan.

Mesias says he will not allow the Perros to destroy AAA, and is not scared of wrestlers who always have to cheat to win.

The Gladiatores has a bunch of backstage interviews from Verano de Escandalo.

Scott “Showtime” Sommers replaces Jerry Lynn on IWL’s show Thursday. I have no idea who that is, but google says he’s in a NWA allied promotion in Texas. They’ve also announced Adam Pearce will come in to face Colt Cabana.

Cronicas Y Leyendas posts video of Canek vs Gigante Warrior.

Angry Marks has a review of the fifth Lucha Libre USA show.

Segunda Caida has three more Black Terry reviews.


CMLL (MON) 08/23 Arena Puebla
1) Lestat & Metatrón vs Centauro de Fuego & Espiritu Maligno
2) Diamante, Molotov, Starman vs Disturbio, Durango Kid, Semental
3) Dalys la Caribeña, Goya Kong, Marcela vs La Seductora, Princesa Sujei, Yeska
4) Hijo del Fantasma, Stuka Jr., Valiente vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca
5) La Máscara, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada vs Averno, Mephisto, Volador Jr.

Sombra/Volador feud continues here, but they might also be setting up a trios title match.

CMLL (TUE) 08/24 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Nube Roja & Relampago vs Cerveruz & Templario
2) Astaroth & Black Metal vs Infierno & Titanio
3) Palacio Negro vs Ebola
4) Ángel de Oro, Ángel de Plata, Rush vs Sangre Azteca, Shigeo Okumura, Yoshihashi
5) Máximo & Rotoporky vs Atlantis & Mr. Niebla

That should be a serious grappling battling in the main event. Meanwhile, Teleformula will cut out fun looking tercera.

CMLL (TUE) 08/24 Arena Mexico
1) Astro Boy & Freesbe vs Apocalipsis & Apolo Estrada Jr.
2) Fuego, Pegasso, Rey Cometa vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Loco Max, Skándalo
3) Sagrado, Toscano, Valiente vs Averno, Dragón Rojo Jr., Mephisto
4) Demus 3:16 vs Pierrothito [bicentenario mini]
5) Blue Panther, Máscara Dorada, Shocker vs Felino, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero

I think Demus is the easy favorite, but Pierrothito’s surprised once before.

If the mysterious Freesbe wrestles, it’ll be his first match here since May 18.

Lider loses hair to Nicho, Valiente retains title, Hooligan, IWL

AAA (SUN) 08/15 Auditorio de Tijuana [DJ Spectro, The Gladiatores]
1) Pensamiento Negro II b Flecha Roja
2) Galeno & Maquiavélico b Cholo (TJ) & Zaeta
3) Hijo de Kendo & Super Kendo b Espectro II Jr. & Star Boy
4) Principe Arandu & TJ Boy b Joe Lider & Nicho el Millionario [relevos suicidas]
5) Nicho el Millionario b Joe Lider [hair]
6) La Parka Jr. b LA Park

4/5 was a surprise; everyone was expecting the locals to lose and face off. Copetes was ref and helped the locals win. Nicho and Lider were forced to fight. Lider put Nicho thru a table and the match was stopped because the doctor was concerned about Nicho. Nicho was taken to the back, but came back, got DDTed, and kicked out. Lider ended up backdropped thru another table for the win.

Crowd was not a fan of the main event. Parka and Park exchanged fouls, with Parka getting away with one for the win.

CMLL (MON) 08/16 Arena Puebla [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Espiritu Maligno, Karisma, Mr. Rafaga b Asturiano, Blue Center, Milenium
2) Arkángel de la Muerte, Dr. X, Hooligan b Ángel Azteca Jr., Pegasso, Sensei
3) Delta, Rush, Sagrado b Euforia, Misterioso II, Pólvora
4) Valiente b Dragón Rojo Jr. [MEX WELTER]
5) Averno, Mephisto, Volador Jr. b La Sombra, Máximo, Rotoporky

Rudos cheated to win, and beat up the tecnicos after the match. Volador took Sombra’s mask after the match. Sombra demanded a one on one match, but Volador said now.

Valiente retained the title. Eight title match loses in a row for Dragon Rojo.

No Anniversary lineup yesterday.

Today’s the second part of the minis bicentennial cibernetico. Bam Bam is the heavy favorite.

AAA:  4.5 – up 0.4
CMLL: 4.1 – up 1.6, highest number since the day after Dos Leyendas
Lucha Libre USA: 0.06 – down 0.06, lowest number so far; coincidentally (or not), they’re looking for info about when/where you watch this show on Twitter.

CMLL’s added Metal Blanco (c) vs Angel del Mal for the Ocicdente Welterweight Championship to this Sunday.

El Siglo de Torreon has a good interview with Hooligan. When he and Ultimo Guerrero came to Mexico City, they were so poor that they couldn’t afford to buy gear, so they got a job with a costumer (El Pony from Monterrey) and lived there. Hooligan discovered an aptitude for sewing, and today is a mask and costume designed of his own. His son, Ultimo Rebelde, works with him, and his work is sold in the US and Japan.

CMLL pulled Mr. Aguila from IWL’s show Thursday This is not surprising; Aguila apparently agreed to work here when he was in Perros del Mal, and CMLL isn’t going to let him work on a show with people who are still in the Perros now. (IWL says CMLL pulled Aguila because CMLL is boring.) The Jerry Lynn vs Mr. Aguila match is now Halloween vs X-Fly. Also, Damian 666 hypes his match with Val Venis (the guy they had listed as “Paul Dennis” – still do, actually) and says to go to Arena Naucalpan if you like the same vs the same, since they’re doing a dream match.

Ovaciones has an interview with Gallo Tapado Jr., who says he’s leading a new promotion built around juniors. Wrestlers announced include: Carta Brava Jr., Halcon Jr., Hijo de Rambo, Tatu el Brujo, Arana de Morelos Jr., Dr. Karonte Jr., Artuo Gaona Jr., Hijo de Climas, Kung Fu Jr., Hijo de Fishman, Hijo de Canek, Scorpio Jr., Ultraman Jr., Hijo de Cien Caras. Probably not a one who’s going to mean much. They’ve got three shows announced, starting 09/04 in Tepalcapa., the kid’s website CMLL has been promoting on it’s TV show (and often mispelling) is down. They’ve set up a blog in the meantime, with profiles of Sangre Azteca, Stuka Jr., and Mistico (where we learn IWRG is a promotion in Japan.)

Arena Azteca Budokan was filled for it’s 49th anniversary show.

Hijo del el Espanto II retained the North Light Heavyweight Championship over Black Soul.

Box Y Lucha #2987 has Lyger & Wagner on the cover. Inside, there’s a mention of Nitro feeling forgotten in CMLL.

1) Dinamic Black b Alan Extreme
2) Imposible & Magia Negra b Eragon & Super Halcon Jr.

opener fall 1, fall 2, fall 3
segunda fall 1, fall 2, fall 3
title match fall 1, fall 2, fall 3

Guapito told both el Brazo and Scorpio Jr. off after the match. He doesn’t need either of them (they need him.)

Semimain – which wasn’t a title match this time around – was fast but good.

Avisman didn’t get along with his partners, and they lost in straight falls.

Eragon & Hijo del Halcon wore combined masks. Too bad they didn’t win.

CMLL (SUN) 08/15 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) El Divino b Metalik
2) Astaroth & Relampago Azul b Acertijo & Nube Roja
3) Ángel de Oro b Ángel Azteca Jr., Ángel de Plata, Delta, Fuego, Ángel del Mal, Gallo, Leo, Metal Blanco, Palacio Negro [cibernetico]
4) La Sombra, Shocker, Toscano b Jushin Liger, Negro Casas, Último Guerrero

All the tecnicos beat all the rudos to end the main event, including Sombra pinning Liger.

Ciberentico came down to Metal Blanco and Angel de Oro (no elimination order.) Angel del Mal returned, turned on his fellow Guadalajara native, and Angel de Oro picked up the win.

Croncias Y Leyendas has Canek in the movies.

Kcids has Jushin Lyger, universal champion of rudoness.


indy (SUN) 09/05 Auditorio Benito Juarez en Zapopan, Jalisco
1) Blue Demon Jr. & LA Park vs Dr. Wagner Jr. & El Hijo Del Santo

Not an AAA show, with Demon & Santo involved. Hard to believe Dr. Wagner is still under contract to AAA if he’s working the indy shows he wasn’t allowed to work according to his contract.

A big show at Arena Coliseo Guadalajara on 09/05 is a mortal lock.

Back this afternoon with the anniversary card.

Rush defeats Loco Max, more in the cage, Flair

CMLL (SUN) 08/15 Arena Mexico [SuperLuchas, @cmllmagazine, Cesar]
1) Astro Boy & BengalaArtillero & Súper Comando
2) Amapola, Mima Shimoda, Princesa BlancaDalys la Caribeña, Luna Mágica, Marcela
3) Mr. Águila, Shigeo Okumura, Texano Jr.Hijo del Fantasma, Metro, Sagrado
4) RushLoco Max [hair]
5) Atlantis, Héctor Garza, Rey BucaneroBrazo de Plata, Místico, Rayo de Jalisco Jr.

Atlantis snuck in a foul on Rayo for the win. Rayo wants a one on one mask match.

Rush took the last two falls to take Loco’s hair. Loco brought his son in the ring, saying he’d avenge his father someday. Loco had his son cut his hair. 2/3rds of the way thru, the barber took the razor and tried to take over, and Loco Max angrily walked out. There was a delay, and Loco Max returned (clearly having been talked to by people in charge) to get his hair cut the rest of the way by the barber. It always seems like the barber is very concerned with being the barber and adding to his count of people shaved, regardless of what other story is being told.

A few replacements: Dalis (who ended up hurt) for Lady Apache, Okumura for Ephesto, Bengali for Trueno.

Lyger, Niebla, Ultimo Guerrero and Atlantis have already been added to the cage match. The full card is supposed to be announced tomorrow.

Black Terry Jr. has lots of photos from Verano de Escandalo.

Cibernetico says he plans to become an actor and move out of wrestling. Sure, why not. I’d take this more seriously if it wasn’t in article about the play he was already acting in.

Misterioso II was back in La Laguna this Sunday, defending the DF Light Heavyweight championship. The what now? Same article confirms the new Ultimo Rebelde is related (and probably a son) of Hooligan.

Lucha Libre USA recaps: PWTorch, 411Mania. The sons of Ric Flair will be appearing at the next taping. Not exactly lucha libre, but it might sell some tickets in Charlotte.

DJ Spectro has an interview with Atlantis & Satanico about their rivalary and Antonio Inoki in Mexico.

SuperLuchas has a bio of Oaxaca’s Casanova.

Cronicas Y Leyendas has articles on Sangre Chicana vs Cachorro Mendoza, Ray Mendoza taking Sunny War Cloud’s hair, Bam Bam Bigelow in Mexico, and Mil Mascaras beating Victor Rivera for his hair.

Luchas 2000 #534 has a preview of the CMLL cage match, before people were added.


IWL (THU) 08/19 Arena Lopez Mateos
1) Heddi Karaoui & Naruto vs Carta Brava & Fantasma de la Ópera
2) Medussa vs La Fugitiva
3) Tiffany vs Vaneli
4) Chucho el Roto vs Leon Rojo, Sepulturero I, Epitafio, Bestia 666, Halloween
5) Mr. Águila vs ? [eightfinal, IWL CHAMP]
6) Val Venis vs Damián 666 [eightfinal, IWL CHAMP]

? was Jerry Lynn. He’s hurt, but will still appear at their show. This is heads up with the AAA taping at IWRG’s place. IWL’s website is actually up. A couple more recaps: Al Filo del Ring, one up at DJ Spectro‘s I really liked.

CMLL (SUN) 08/22 Arena Coliseo
1) Bengala, Metatrón, Trueno vs Camorra, Disturbio, Semental
2) Astro Boy, Metálico, Starman vs Inquisidor, Puma King, Tiger Kid
3) Metro, Rush, Stuka Jr. vs Euforia, Pólvora, Virus
4) Blue Panther, Hijo del Fantasma, Toscano vs Jushin Liger, Sangre Azteca, Terrible
5) Rayo de Jalisco Jr. vs Atlantis

Not a mask match. Yet.

CMLL (SUN) 08/22 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Thunder Boy vs Thundarr
2) Metatrón & Virgo vs León Blanco & Ráfaga
3) Gallo & Metal Blanco vs Ángel del Mal & Exterminador
4) Lady Apache, Marcela, Silueta vs Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Maya
5) Blue Panther, Shocker, Strong Man vs Jushin Liger, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero

Strong Man did finish with 4 points in the G1, which was about 4 more than I was expecting. CMLL hasn’t mentioned it at all, so they probably were expecting the same (or just don’t want to mention the unbeatable guy being beat.)

IWRG (SUN) 08/22 Arena Naucalpan
1) Dinamic Black vs Epidemia
2) Eragon, Freelance, Jack vs Carta Brava Jr., Comando Negro, Imposible
3) Dr. Cerebro vs El Hijo del Diablo [IWRG IC Light]
4) Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Chico Che, Veneno vs Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro, Oficial Marshal
5) El Brazo vs Scorpio Jr. [Guapito]

Main event is for possession of Guapito. For real.

That’s Diablo’s third shot at this belt.
