Super Porky hurt, Psicosis/Sombra, Groon, lineups

CMLL (SUN) 05/09 Arena Coliseo [@cmllmagazine]
1) Camaleón & MetálicoApocalipsis & Cholo
2) Dalys la Caribeña, Lady Apache, Luna MágicaAmapola, Princesa Sujei, Seuxis
3) Dr. X, Hooligan, Nosferatu DQ Ángel de Oro, Ángel de Plata, Fabián el Gitano
4) Dragón Rojo Jr., Misterioso II, Sangre AztecaFuego, Metro, Stuka Jr.
5) El Alebrije, Histeria, PsicosisBrazo de Plata, Héctor Garza, La Sombra

Big news from the show was Porky suffering a dislocated jaw during the match. The paramedics were able to get everything aligned correctly (and tend to some cuts), but he’ll be out of action for a week and not able to open his mouth wide for six weeks. Not sure how it happened, but I’m sure we’ll see it next week.

In the match, Psicosis pulled Sombra’s mask to pin it. The two challenged to a singles matches nxt week.

Maybe Dragon Rojo can try for the Arena Coliseo tag team titles?

DQ in the tercera gave the rudos a straight fall win, and predictable was the tecnico angrily gaining revenge on the rudo. Surprisingly, it was Angel de Plata & Hooligan. (Fabian and Dr. X still feuded.) Unsurprisingly, they challenged each other to a mask match at undefined date. They really need to start having some forward momentum on this bit.

Perros del Mal say Groon XXX underwent knee surgery on Monday, and will do a radio interview about his future on 05/13. They’re trying to tone done the talk of retirement.

Estrellas del Ring talks to Histeria & Psicosis about their recent invasion.

SuperLuchas says TNA’s Beer Money will challenge Morishima and Ishimori for the AAA Tag Titles at TripleMania. AAA also says La Hermandad will be in the match. Don’t really need to pay attention to the AAA TripleMania press conference if they’re leaking all the matches ahead of time (but it’s not for me.)

Mima Shimora talks to Record about her recent magazine pictorials.

DJ Spectro looks back at TripleMania II‘s matches.

Cronicas Y Leyendas looks at the brothers Dos Caras & Mil Mascaras, and a good career history for Supremo I.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update from Saturday and Sunday, as well as Fredo on the first Perros del Mal show.

Luchas2000 #520 has the new trios champions and the last week of the Perros. I mean, the previous week.

SuperLuchas #363 has Dos Caras Jr. in Mexico and the new trios champs.

Lineups

IWRG (THU) 05/13 Arena Naucalpan
1) Guizmo vs Comando Negro
2) Black Terror Jr. & Dinamic Black vs Eterno & Hijo del Signo
3) Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro vs Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo, Gringo Loco
4) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro vs Aerostar, Gato Eveready, Laredo Kid
5) Máscara Año 2000 & Máscara Año 2000 Jr. vs Electroshock & Silver King

Real Fuerza Aerea AAA! Can they please for sanctuary or asylum or straight up defect? Maybe Pegasso and Rey Cometa can come by and stage some sort of intervention. Yes, Super Fly will be left behind enemy lines, but he’s gone Sayid-on-Lost, over to the darkside.

Black Terror Jr.? That matches a Queretaro wrestler from 2007, if it’s right.

CMLL (SUN) 05/16 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Meteoro vs Johnny Dinamo
2) El Divino & Leo vs Ángel del Mal & In Memoria
3) Mr. Trueno vs Ebola [tournament, OCCIDENTE LH]
4) Gallo vs Drago [tournament, OCCIDENTE LH]
5) Metal Blanco & Palacio Negro vs Mephisto & Vangelis
6) Hijo del Fantasma, Místico, Strong Man vs Felino, Negro Casas, Terrible

Tournament brackets remain elusive. Mephisto & Vangelis vs two locals is interesting.

IWRG (SUN) 05/16 Arena Naucalpan
1) Imperial vs Comando Negro
2) Dinamic Black & Hijo del Pantera vs Alan Extreme & Eterno
3) Jack vs Bombero Infernal
4) Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo, Gringo Loco vs Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro [EdM Trios]
5) Dr. Cerebro, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Pantera, Suicida, Veneno vs Extreme Tiger, Kenzo Suzuki, Pimpinela Escarlata, Último Gladiador [Copa Higher Power]

And I thought that 30 man indy battle royal with IWRG guys and Puebla guys and AULL guys and Guerrero Maya Jr. was going to be the weirdest match of the year. 2010 is full of surprises (including a 5v4 match, at the moment.)

Oficials skipped out on the tournament, may win the titles in the first defense? Maybe not so much.

new Trios champions, TripleManai press conference, CMLL in NJPW

CMLL (FRI) 05/07 Arena Mexico [SuperLuchasCesarESTOFuego en el RingOvaciones]
1) Leono & Sensei DQ Apocalipsis & Durango Kid
2) Pegasso, Rey Cometa, RushLoco Max, Nitro, Skándalo
3) Arkangel de la MuerteÁngel Azteca Jr. [lightning]
4) Brazo de Plata, Máximo, Toscano DQ Ephesto, Terrible, Texano Jr.
5) Delta, La Sombra, Volador Jr.Averno, Mephisto, Pólvora
6) Hiroshi Tanahashi, Shigeo Okumura, TaichiHéctor Garza, Hijo del Fantasma, La Máscara [CMLL TRIOS]

The Japanese trio, teaming up for the first time ever, becomes the 21st CMLL Trios champions and first champions from outside of Mexico. Garza spend the match accidentally turning on his partners, making up with his partners, and then not-accidentally clotheslining them both when they went for dives in the third fall.

Volador got Averno with the Spanish fly in the second. Neither Delta or Polvora had good nights; Fuego says Delta hurt his ankle.

Tecnicos won the fourth in straight falls, Texano fouling Brazo de Plata in the second. Second match was a straight fall win as well.

Durango pulled Sensei’s mask in the opener, then pinned him with a DDT. Referees figured it out.

Cesar called this one of the worst shows in recent years.

AAA will hold a press conference to announce the TripleMania lineup on 05/12.

Mascara Dorada and Valiente lost in the first round of the Super J Tag Team Tournament to eventual runner ups Apollo 55. Taguchi pinned Dorada. Haven’t heard much about the match, but it sounds like the CMLL guys acquitted themselves well for an 8 minutes match. They managed to wrestle despite the airline losing their luggage. SuperLuchas has more photos of the duo hanging out in Japan.

NJPW announced 15 of their 16 participants in their Best of Super Jr. VII. La Sombra will be in the tournament as a representative CMLL. Tournament runs from May 30 to June 13th, so he’s skipping Infierno en el Ring. It’s funny how NJPW lists Sombra’s birth as unknown – maybe I should tweet “11/03/89” to them?

Psicosis is proud of his independent team’s record so far, and already reaching a singles match with Fantasma. After years of people calling AAA wrestlers clowns, he’s proving different. Psicosis big plan is a show half of CMLL wrestlers and half of independent wrestlers. Psicosis also did an interview on Ras de Lona, and looked like he was having the time of his life as leader of the independents.

AAA teases an article in the new Dos de Tres about the Apache sisters and their children. Same theme on Ras de Lona this week, with Dalys, Lluvia and Lady Apache. Apache’s kid(s?) were not seen, but Dalys’ oldest daughter sure appeared to be wearing wrestling gear.

Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. sees his feud with Silver King ending one of two ways – either he puts the IWRG Heavyweight title on the line, or – since Silver King doesn’t have hair or mask that Mascara wants – they face in a retirement match. So it’ll be a title match.

Televisa says they expect 75% of the sales of the AAA video game to come in the US. That’s probably not going to work out well.

DJ Spectro looks back at Halcon Dorado.

Kcidis draws an overwhelming amount of invasions.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

Lineups

CMLL (FRI) 05/14 Arena Mexico
1) Camaleón & Principe vs Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Bam Bam, Mascarita Dorada, Shockercito vs Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Warrior
3) Fuego, Sagrado, Stuka Jr. vs Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca, Virus
4) Máscara Dorada vs Averno [lightning]
5) Héctor Garza, Terrible, Texano Jr. vs Hiroshi Tanahashi, Shigeo Okumura, Taichi
6) Místico, Shocker, Strong Man vs Felino, Negro Casas, Último Guerrero

I guess Texano knew something about teaming with Garza! There’s all the possibility for a quick trios change in the next few weeks – Tanahashi is due back for that Best of Super Juniors tour – so this trio has as much chance as any.

Dorada/Averno looks good, as does everything below it. Mascarita Dorada actually advertised for a show.

Maybe Camaleon can finally get the Ras de Lona interview? Maybe he has but he’s such a super Camaleon, I thought he was someone else.

CMLL (SUN) 05/16 Arena Mexico
1) Rayo Tapatío I & Rayo Tapatío II vs Apocalipsis & Ramstein
2) Lady Apache, Luna Mágica, Marcela vs La Seductora, Princesa Blanca, Yeska
3) Metro, Rush, Valiente vs Arkangel de la Muerte, Cancerbero, Raziel
4) Brazo de Plata, Héctor Garza, Toscano vs El Alebrije, Histeria, Maniaco
5) La Máscara, La Sombra, Shocker vs Averno, Ephesto, Texano

Garza faces the independent for two straight weeks. Maybe there’s some explanation there for why he’s  not yet on the rudo side fll time. Marcela is back from a month off and a trip to Japan.

IWRG & AAA split matches, Garza, Groon

IWRG (THU) 05/06 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), Alan!]
1) Alan Extreme b Dark Devil
2) Daga & Dinamic Black b Comando Negro & Eterno
3) Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro b Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo, Gringo Loco
4) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro DQ Cuervo, Escoria, Ozz
5) Electroshock, Silver King, Último Gladiador b Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Máscara Año 2000, Máscara Año 2000 Jr.

Main event was full of cheating. In the third, After Ultimo Gladiador missed a dive (and may have hurt himself), Electroshock took Hijo de Mascara Ano 2000 out with a martinete. Mascara Ano 2000 and Electroshock fouled each other, and Silver King pulled of Mascara Ano 2000 Jr.’s mask and covered him for the win. Mascaras called Silver King unprofessional for wearing his mask (possibly in response to AAA guys ripping Hijo de Mascara for not professional for not catching Gladiador), and Silver King challenged for the IWRG Heavyweight title.

Dark Family was DQed for fouling 911, and both sides talked rematches. Cerebto Terribles want a shot at their old titles, which they never actually lost in the ring, after beating the new champs.

CMLL previews: Ovaciones, ESTO, Notimex, SuperLuchas.

Hector Garza tells Record that he had no idea they were defending the titles until he went to the office on Wednesday to get his weekly bookings. I completely believe this. Garza vows to be a professional.

Everyone is sure the trios titles are changing hands tonight.

Couldn’t believe it was true until I looked it up (and I’m still expecting a correction), but tonight’s also the first time Angel Azteca Jr. will face Arkangel (the man who unmasked Angel Azteca Sr.) in a singles match. Arkangel holds the lead 15-10 in known tag and trios matches.

Luchas2000 says Groon XXX may retire due to the ankle/knee/leg injury suffered on the Perros del Mal show.

Am.com.mx called the main event of a Perros show in Leon “souless”, and noted the poor turnout.

LA Park is listed on AAA spots shows after TripleMania. Though the other shows AAA put up for June are actually for May.

CMLL is running Mother’s Day shows on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday.

Next week’s Dos de Tres has Wagner vs Electro on the cover.

Cronicas y Leyendas has a profile of Fenix & looks back at Super Crazy vs Mosco in 1998.

IWRG: A trios match gone bad, and also one with Rayo Jr.

CMLL-MEX: I buried the lead; the big news here isn’t that it’s on at 1:30, but that’s CMLL is on Sunday this week. It’s a straight block of 90 minutes of CMLL (trios title change) leading into

Tanahashi, Averno, really not that much, lineups

Tanahashi arrived in Mexico yesterday, talking about wanting to learn a lot while in Mexico and even learn lucha from the beginners classes.

Averno says Mascara will have do something exceptional to take the [NWA] Middleweight Belt from him. This can only mean one thing: top rope campana. By the way, CMLL still lists the NWA titles as NWA Titles on their website. Of course, they also list Hijo del Fantasma as the current CMLL middleweight champion, so maybe it’s not a big priority.

CMLL is trying to get the word out about the main show airing at 1:30 pm this coming Saturday.

AAA returns to IWRG tonight. They also promise surprises on it’s May 15th anniversary, and also say they’ll announce the full TripleMania card next week. I’d like to stay off the internet on next Wednesday, so I’m fairly certain the TripleMania lineup will come out on Wednesday.

Valiente talks about his career, from an anonymous guy in small shows to traveling to Japan yesterday to represent CMLL.

Dos Caras Jr. is wearing his mask for the current WWE Mexico tour, and would prefer you not ask him about not wearing his mask elsewhere.

Alebrije says he’d like to face Brazo de Plata, Shocker, Ultimo Guerrero and Atlantis – the invaders are taking on tecnicos and rudos. He says he knew this was working out good when they were facing tecnicos and he was actually getting booed.

Texano would be open to teaming with Hector Garza, if Garza fully joined the rudo side.

A Fuego en el Ring interview starts out: “In recent weeks, the case of Septiembre Negro has been on everyone’s lips.” Really?

Mini Charly Manson & Mascarita Divina gave incredibly generic quotes about their TripleMania match. They don’t even mention the ladder stipulation.

Octavio Ocana, the child actor who worked opposite of Guapito on an AAA Kid’s Day show, says he’s been training for two months with Octagon and Apache. Hmmm.

The Perros are running a show on 05/21 in Zacatecas.

DJ Spectro looks back at Medico Asesino vs Gardenia Davis and Los Terroristas.

Cronicas Y Leyendas looks back Sangre Chicana.

2) Drago & León Blanco vs Leo & Samurai
3) Ebola & Mr. Trueno vs Magnum & Neutrón
4) Ángel de Oro & Ángel de Plata vs Dragón Rojo Jr. & Sangre Azteca
5) Asesino Negro, Brazo de Plata, Máximo vs La Máscara, Terrible, Último Guerrero [Relevos Increíbles]

Asesino/Porky’s team will not work out so well.

4) Blue Panther, Toscano, Valiente vs Ephesto, Mephisto, Pólvora
5) La Sombra, Máscara Dorada, Volador Jr. vs Atlantis, Averno, Rey Bucanero

Delta may be getting the semimain on Friday, but Polvora is here on his on Tuesday. Guess we get to see if he can hang with the rest. Main event should be fun. Tercera seems to continue Dr. X/Fabian.

05/05 Mondo Lucha show at Congress

Hopefully this’ll be quick (edit: it wasn’t!), because I’m a bit overloaded today. Though what could be more vital than lucha results from a part music concert/part burlseque show.

Mondo Lucha is a group trying to do the Lucha Va Voom bit of lucha and burlesque dancing. “Trying” is the emphasis. This show was trying by the end.

(more…)

Mexico, singles matches set up in GDL, ACM

Happy commercially overtaken day designed to sell more alcohol to the 16-39 age group! If I don’t feel lazy tonight, I think I’m headed to Mondo Lucha at Congress. Say hi if you can spot me.

CMLL (TUE) 05/04 Arena Mexico [ESTO, @cmllmagazine]
1) Molotov & Trueno b Inquisidor & Semental
2) Ángel de Oro, Ángel de Plata, Fuego b Cancerbero, Virus, Virus
3) Bam Bam, Eléctrico, Mascarita Dorada b Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito
4) Dragón Rojo Jr., Felino, Misterioso II b Blue Panther, Shocker, Volador Jr.
5) La Sombra, Máscara Dorada, Místico b Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero

Card was dramatically changed from what was announced on Friday. ESTO had the lineup on their website earlier on Tuesday, though their preview about the show and the ad in Ovaciones still had the old lineup. This show was sponsored by Microsoft, as part of a partnership between the two companies to push Internet Explorer 8. The deal includes a CMLL branded version of the IE8 browser, which changes your home page to a secret search page on CMLL.com, though the only special thing I can find there is a few extra pictures. They’re promising more to come.

Maybe someone decided to a more plain, happy show because it was a sponsored show? The relevos match scheduled for the main event was scrapped in favor of moving Volador to the semimain and using standard tecnico/rudo trios. No mention of any Sombra/Mistico issues, and someone decided to give Negro Casas the night off after all. Mistico got UG clean with La Mistico for the main event win.

Mascarita Dorada returned in the minis match to lead his team to the win. The Women’s match was replaced with a standard Angels/Cancerbero match.

CMLL (TUE) 05/04 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) In Memoria b Relampago Azul
2) Magnum & Virgo b Acertijo & Infierno
3) Gallo, Metal Blanco, Palacio Negro b Exterminador, Malefico, Mr. Trueno
4) La Máscara b Averno
5) Brazo de Plata, Máximo, Toscano b Asesino Negro, Terrible, Texano

Porky pined Asesino Negro, and the two agreed to a hair match. Averno accepted La Mascara’s challenge for a (NWA) Middlweight championship match after his defeat. No dates were set for either match.

indy (SUN) 05/02 Arena Coliseo Monterrey [RFC]
1) Lady Maravilla & Lady Puma b Rebelde & Rey Jaguar
2) Chipendale & Spider b Rosa Salvaje & Sexy Maciel
3) Aero Boy, Tigre Universitario, Violento Jack DQ Principe Guerrero, Rey Demonio Jr., Sangre Chicana Jr.
4) Red Flamer b Pancho Tequila [FILL SH]
5) Lover Boy L Simbolo, Golden Boy, Monje Negro Jr., Hator, Estrella Dorada Jr. [hair, cage]

Lover Boy lost his hair to Simbolo. Red Flamer retained the title. DQ was for Violento Jack turning on Aero Boy.

El Supremo, Salvador Cuevas, passed away on Tuesday. He was a star of the 80s, known for his physique. Highlights of his mask loss to Pierroth, the effective end of his career, are on YouTube.

SuperLuchas has quotes from Cuervo, talking about returning to Arena Naucalpan. He says the only guy still there from when he was starting out is Dr. Cerebro. Record adds some additional quotes from the rest of the Dark Family, who say they’ll show AAA has the best luchadors.

Estrellas del Ring talks to Veneno, who has reached 17 years of wrestling.  He was not a fan of that name when CMLL gave it to him, but grew to like it.

Noroeste talks to Culican wrestler Muralla Negra, who says he’s been wrestling for 28 years, and talks about sneaking around the comission to debut at age 18.

Cronicas y Leyendas looks at the last appearance of Andre el Gigante in Mexico.

The Gladiatores has interviews with Kato Kung Lee, el Signo, Gringos VIP, and Supreme.

Segunda Caida returns from a month off with a review of IWRG 09/24/09.

2) El Divino & Hierro vs Acertijo & Infierno
3) Astaroth vs Ráfaga [tournament, OCCIDENTE LH]
4) Gallo vs Rey Trueno [tournament, OCCIDENTE LH]
5) Metal Blanco & Palacio Negro vs Ephesto & Shigeo Okumura
6) Hijo del Fantasma, Máximo, Toscano vs Negro Casas, Terrible, Texano

Still don’t know how many people are in this tournament (or I guess even if it is a elimination tournament, since they did do league format last year), but I guess we’ll know next week if they’re still doing first round matches.

CMLL (MON) 05/10 Arena Puebla
1) Asturiano, Centella de Oro, Milenium vs Centauro de Fuego, Fuerza Chicana, Toro Bill Sr.
2) Astro Boy, Leono, Metálico vs Durango Kid, Puma King, Tiger Kid
3) Delta, Diamante, Sensei vs Loco Max, Nitro, Skándalo
4) Hijo del Fantasma vs Psicosis
5) Hiroshi Tanahashi, Místico, Taichi vs La Máscara, Negro Casas, Volador Jr.

What a trio.

At least in Puebla, Fantasma is the defender of CMLL against the rudos independents. I think he’s going to end up paired off with Garza, so I wonder if that’ll fall to Sombra later on.

There’s no better sign of how Leono’s dropped in the eyes of the programmers than Sensei moving past him. Highly unlikely.

4) Black Terry, Chico Che, Jack b Cerebro Negro, Maldito Jr., Samot
5) Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Universo 2000 b Pantera, Rayo de Jalisco Jr., Scorpio Jr.

Universo ran in Arena Mexico, then made it over here to win the main event, pinning Rayo after Mascara Jr. snuck back in to foul him.

Cerebro Negro & his partners did not get along. Black Terry saved his old partner after the match.

CMLL (MON) 05/03 Arena Puebla [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Karisma & Mr. Rafaga b Black Tiger & Blue Center
2) Leono, Starman, Tony Rivera b Disturbio, Mortiz, Semental

4) Blue Panther, Sagrado, Valiente b Dragón Rojo Jr., Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca
5) El Alebrije, Histeria, Psicosis DQ Hijo del Fantasma, La Sombra, Shocker

In the third fall, Psicosis went to foul Fantasma, Fantasma avoided him, and Psicosis yanked his mask off anyway. Fantasma challenged Psicosis to a singles match next week, wanting to expel the invaders from CMLL. No sign of the Dinamitas.

ESTO looks forward to more Mistico vs Volador in today’s Arena Mexico main event. It’s technically relevos main event with Garza/UG/Mistico vs Volador/Sombra/Felino, but if Felino is willing to get along with his partners, it’s easily rudos vs tecnicos.

A poster on Box Y Lucha says the Perros SLP show drew 30% capacity, and the promoter lost 200,000 Mexican pesos ($16,104USD) on the show. Pictures from Tijuana look 50% full or less. There doesn’t seem to be a turnaround here, and I’d bet they’re not going back to these places with the same promoters.

Despite losing again (clean), Dragon Rojo Jr. vows not to give up feuding with Mascara Dorada. Mascara Dorada would like to have a mask match vs Dragon Rojo, but Dragon Rojo isn’t answering. (Well, duh, you keep beating him.) Sangre Azteca went on a photo shoot.

AAA and SuperLuchas announced Nicho & Lider vs Sabu & Super Crazy for the Lucha Fan Fest at the end of the month.

AAA has a video bit up with Nikia, Dorian Roldan’s new secretary. Looks like she’s the same person as the Nikkia who worked Rey Bucanero’s club shows but never made it onto CMLL TV.

DJ Spectro says Estrellita has been dealing with personal issues and may resurface with a different company.

Galactar lost his mask in Monterrey.

PWInsider says the MTV2/Marco Corleone show will tape shows in Las Vegas, on 05/29 and 05/30 and will not air until Spring. Differnet location, and a lot later air date than I had heard previously. The article also mentions MTV had talked to AAA, but changed their mind after an AAA pilot tested badly. I want to know what they actually said about the AAA show, but I got to to figure it’s the same stuff we would say.

Hector Garza laid down on the mat to give up a fall in the semimain, and opted not to break up pins on his teammates.  In related news, SuperLuchas has an interview with soon to be CMLL World Trios Champion Hiroshi Tanahashi, who likes the Mexican women.

At an AAA show in Tabasco last Saturday, child actor Octavio Ocana accompanied the Air Force to counter Guapito helping the Metrosexuals.
