03/10 Arena Puebla Results (¡new tag champs!)

CMLL (MON) 03/10 Arena Puebla
1) Asturiano, Super Star, SWAT b Espiritu Maligno, Furia Chicana, Karisma
2) Batman, the Tiger, Tigre Rojo b Flecha, Negro Navarro, Policeman
3) Ohara, Shigeo Okumura, Virus b Flash, Máscara Púrpura, Stuka Jr.
4) Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero b Blue Panther, Grey Shadow, Negro Casas
5) Héctor Garza & Místico b Averno & Mephisto [CMLL TAG]

Mistico got Averno in the third fall. Referee Rodolfo Ruiz, suspiciously seemingly always scheduled to work his son’s big matches, got distracted checking on him and missed Mephisto fouling Mistico. While Ruiz was still looking the wrong way, Hector fouled Mephsito in revenge, and moonsaulted him to win the titles.

Averno & Mephisto were champions for only 40 days. This is Mistico’s 3rd title reign, and he’s now back to being a four belt champion. Hector Garza has never won the tag team titles before, and is actually a three belt champion (CMLL Trios, WWA Tag – both up in the air due to his turn.)

Now we know what the tag title match got pulled from the PPV. Also, Chui’s point about life getting worse once you join the Perros gets proved again.

03/09 AAA TV Results (Texcoco)

Previous: 02/23 (Minatitlan), 03/01 (Orizaba), 03/05 (SLP)

AAA TV (SUN) 03/09 Plaza de Toros Silverio Perez, Texcoco, EdM [ESTO]
1) Argenis, Gato Eveready, Pegasso b Ángel Mortal, Gallego, Mr. Cóndor
2) Killer Clown, Psycho Clown, Zombie Clown b Joe Lider, Juventud Guerrera, Ultimo Gladiador
4) Billy Boy & Super Fly b Antifaz del Norte & Histeria and Chris Stone & Super Calo [Rey de Reyes, qualifying]
4) Aero Star, Intocable, Octagón b Decnnis, Scorpio Jr., Zumbido
5) Extreme Tiger, Halloween, TJ Xtreme b Kenzo Suzuki, Konnan, Mr. Niebla
6) Charly Manson, Chessman, Cibernetico b Abismo Negro, Head Hunter I, Zorro

Projected Air Date (#828)
Mexico: 03/24/08
US: 04/12/08

With Abismo turning tecnico, the main event was not going to work. No idea where Ron Killings is (perhaps he’s done here early?), but Zorro is back to being the Hell Brothers punching bag. Legion and Vipers did manage to lay Abismo out after the match, and he took a strecher ride leading into Rey de Reyes.

Familia de Tijauna got a somewhat inexplicable win, Halloween beating Konnan (replacing X-Pac, while Niebla took Zorro’s spot.) I presume this is make up for all the losses they suffered lately.

Aerostar took the empty spot on the tecnico side and got a win. Yay for him. Billy Boy and Super Fly won, as figured. Clowns are at 92 wins, just in time to get 100 at Rey de Reyes, provided they eventually get opponents. Have they announced the lineup on TV yet, because it occurs to me it isn’t on the website. The opener also occurred.

Not only do we have 16 of 16 Rey de Reyes participants, but ESTO also posted the first round matchups. Let’s see if I can read them correctly

Group 1: Elegido, Mr. Niebla, Mascara Divina, Zumbido
Group 2: Alan Stone, Decnnis, Head Hunter, Pirata Morgan
Group 3: Abismo Negro, Super Porky, Psicosis, Aerostar
Group 4: Zorro, Scorpio Jr., Billy Boy, Super Fly

Hmmm. Mr. Niebla, Alan Stone, Abismo Negro, Zorro still works.

Upcoming Shows
03/16: Plaza de Toros Monumental, Monterrey, Nuevo Leon (Rey de Reyes)
at some point, there’s gotta be more.

AAA 02/16/08 (#820)

taped 01/19/08, aired 02/16/08

If you ever find yourself standing in front of a table that’s leaning in the corner, you need to move. If you’re being held there, don’t worry too much, because the guy holding you will let go just in time for you to move and die in your place, but don’t be holding people yourself.

This was a lot of things going, that have been going for a while, and I don’t know if there will ever be an actual conclusion.

Mini Abismo vs Mini Charly is never going anywhere, right? Because Mini Abismo is never losing his mask while normal Abismo is around, Charly losing his hair would be really dumb, and there’s no minis title in AAA. I wonder if they’ll turn Mini Abismo to match normal Abismo. That would be really dumb. (Maybe he can be Mini Mr. Niebla?)

It was the same for most every other match. Lots of middle time filling chapters going on, and not with anything really great. The Halloween/Chessman has been better than could’ve been expected, but I don’t expect this to be a trend.,

And then it rained. So I can pass on this.

03/10: Guadalajara

CMLL (SUN) 03/09 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [MT, ix @ box y lucha]
3) Metatron & Oro II b Fraile de la Muerte & Guero Loco
4) Mascarita Dorada & Último Dragoncito b Pequeño Black Warrior & Pierrothito
5) Atenea, Hiroka, Medussa b Luna Mágica, Marcela, Silueta
6) Dos Caras Jr., Rayman, Sagrado DQ Danger (Guadalajara), Olímpico, Satánico

Lizmark Jr. missed the main event. That’s his move. Tecnicos nearly had the third fall won, so Satanico fouled Sagrado and yanked Dos’ mask. Satanico decided this meant he got a heavyweight title match. Works for me. Ix’s recap says the show was quarter fall.

Ovaciones timed the Coliseo Women’s title match in at 12:23. Sick Mistico @ box y lucha has another recap of the show. trevor_time @ box y lucha posted photos of the Wagner show in Torreon.

El Universal has a bio of Irma Gonzalez, now 70.

El Mesias told Univision that Sunday is Cibernetico’s last chance. Rey de Reyes is Sunday, which is odd to me.

03/09: Coliseo, IWRG, lineups

CMLL (SUN) 03/09 Arena Coliseo [TAKER @ el Martiente]
1) Rayo Tapatío I & Rayo Tapatío II DQ Pólvora & Vaquero
2) Fire, Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Halloween b Bracito de Oro, Pequeño Olímpico, Tzuki
3) Alex Koslov, La Sombra, Máximo b Damián 666, Ephesto, Texano Jr.
4) Amapola b Dark Angel [CMLL WOMEN]
5) Atlantis, Sangre Azteca, Último Guerrero b LA Park, Negro Casas, Volador Jr.

Ultimo fouled Volador and pinned him for the win. Ultimo and Volador argued after the match, and will be on opposite sides next week.

Amapola took the second and third falls. I think that’s the beginning of a story and not the end.

Rayos won the first fall, and one got their mask yanked in the second.

IWRG (SUN) 03/02 Arena Naucalpan [superluchas #254]
1) Ambar & Bacteria b Judas el Traidor & Semental
2) Halcon Salvaje & Star Boy b Trauma I & Trauma II
3) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro b Chicoe Che, Freelance, Soberano
4) Cyborg, El Hijo del Diablo, Xibalba b Bogeman, Mr. America, Negro Navarro
5) Black Terry, Cien Caras Jr., El Hijo de Pierroth b El Hijo del Solitario, Tarzan Boy, Ultramán Jr.

Tarzan is a tecnico here, having been turned on previously. Multifacetico missed the show, out from injuries suffered in his title match with Black Terry. Mr. America is not Hulk Hogan, I think.

Tarzan’s interviewed in the latest superluchas. He’s still under CMLL suspension, and may be for three more months, but he talked to them and they gave him the okay to work here until he’s back. He’s enjoying the chance to work on the tecnico side for the first time in a long, and to work at all. Toscano confirms he changed to that name in CMLL because of licensing issues – they couldn’t market Tarzan Boy action figures because someone else had the rights to the names. Toscano’s looked far more sculpted these days and he credits it to things he learned at a bodybuilding exhibition. Toscano specifically denies being on steroids – he feels like he’d gain too much weight, and it’s hurt him in the ring.

There’s also a good Gray Shadow in the magazine. He spells it with an ‘a’ there.

IWRG (THU) 03/06 Arena Naucalpan [superluchas #254]
1) Bacteria b Rey Estruendo
2) Trauma I & Trauma II b Avisman & Chico Che
3) Black Terry, Mr. Matanza, Veneno b Fantasma de la Ópera, Freelance, Multifacético
4) el Hijo Del Anibal b Máscara Año 2000, Pantera, Ultramán Jr., Toscano, Negro Navarro, Septiembre Negro II, El Hijo del Solitario [cage, Leyende de Seda]

It’s a good thing they Hijo de Anibal won, or the big picture of Anibal they had him pray in front of after the match would’ve been kinda out of place. (Maybe it’s there always. Perhaps.) Anyway, Universo 2000 ran in after the match to attack Anibal, and Toscano ran him off. Universo’s going to actually wrestle a match next week.

Accion

CMLL: Averno vs Hector. Clips of Avenro hitting his finisher (but not getting the pin), and of Averno’s whole (well, 90%) exposed face when Garza rips the mask. Not sure I would’ve gone with that, but okay. Perro runs in and then back sinto the crowd,. Garza gests the twisting moonesualt for the win.

AAA: Octagon, Laredo Kid, Gronda vs Mr. Niebla, Histeria, Psicosis. Beside the opener, this was the match to cut from the actual show if they want 1:45, because it’s kinda irrelevant. So it get plenty of time here.Three people (if you count Gronda) are standing outside the ring to catch Laredo Kid’s springboard twisting moonsault, and Laredo Kid doesn’t get caught. Professional! Gronda actually comes closest. Niebla missed on his handspring, but his leadership causes Psicosis to hit Octagon with a chair. Niebla does get the the Nieblina for the win.

03/08: Mexico, lineups, GdR

CMLL (FRI) 03/07 Arena Mexico [ovaciones, ESTO, superlucha]

6) el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Villano V b Dos Caras Jr. & LA Park [torneo, final]
7) Héctor Garza b Averno

Garza got attacked by two Avernos to start the match – Mephisto dressed up like his partner to give him an early edge. Averno couldn’t finish Hector off in that first fall, and Hector ended up winning the fall. Perro tried to help out in the second fall, but his interference backfired and Hector took in two. Hector warned Perro this is whats’ coming on 03/21.

Dos and Park beat the Guerreros clean. Perro Jr. and Villano V used the ropes to pin Blue Panther and Dr. Wagner, then used a foul to take the match.

Marco took out all the rudos with Air Italia to the outside in the third fall of his match, and none could make it back in time.

CMLL (TUE) 03/11 Arena Mexico
1) Sensei & Trueno vs Carrona & Cholo
2) Fire, Mr. Aguilita, Pequeño Damian 666 vs Celestial, Electrico, Shockercito
3) Fabián el Gitano, Felino, Máximo vs Dr. X, Mentallo, Shigeo Okumura
4) Alex Koslov, Sagrado, Volador Jr. vs Ephesto, Misterioso II, Virus
5) Héctor Garza, La Sombra, Marco Corelone vs Damián 666, Terrible, Texano Jr.

Hey, look, the Mexican trios champs not together AND Alex and Marco not together. They’re totally doing on purpose, someone in CMLL must dislike the idea of stable tecnico groups. (This is a crackpot theory, but you’ll notice we’ve only heard about Mistico’s idea for a group from outside sources.)

CMLL (FRI) 03/14 Arena Mexico
1) Ángel Azteca Jr. & Metálico vs Pólvora & Vaquero
2) Flash, Máscara Púrpura, Stuka Jr. vs Loco Max, Nitro, Skandalo
3) Dark Angel, Goddess, Marcela vs Amapola, Hiroka, Princesa Sujei
4) Alex Koslov, Blue Panther, Negro Casas vs Damián 666, Mr. Águila, Villano V
5) Héctor Garza, Marco Corelone, Místico vs Averno, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Mephisto

Kinda weak card. Build for the main event and not much else. While that’s not the strongest group of Rebeldes (maybe the weakest?), I presume there are some pleased people that match ended up second and the women’s match ended up third.

CMLL CAN52 Guerreros del Ring #119

03/07: Panico, Mexico, Puebla, GDL

CMLL

(ESTO) Panico sets the record straight.
– There’s no favoritism at all. You must have quality, and you must prove it!*
– Everyone has to earn their place** and “respects the ideology of each of the leaders, whether tecnico or rudo”***
– CMLL doesn’t protect Mistico, the people who challenge Mistico talk a lot but don’t sign their name on the line when it comes down to it
– CMLL has no issues with anyone and opens the door to all luchadors worthy of competing here.
– They certainly don’t have a problem with Hijo del Santo, because they respect independent talent – look at Dr. Wagner!****
– signing Axxel will not cause any problems with Hijo del Santo****

* – Just like Leono
** – Just like La Mascara
*** – I sincerly have no idea what this means
**** – who’s been pulled from shows he was supposed to work with Santo
***** – well, any problems CMLL actually cares about

The actual news here is CMLL cares about these issues, and people’s comments about these issues, enough to publicly respond to them. They don’t seem to normally do that, and most of the press coverage of Axxel joining CMLL was positive and went out of their way to skirt the issue Hijo del Santo issue. Something must’ve hit a nerve. (Sorry?)

Just so the actual point’s not lost in the debate: both sides are pretty screwed up here, it sure looks like CMLL is going to eventually win based on the crowds Santo is drawing, and we’re all hoping Axxel has become great to mitigate that part of the problem.

CMLL (FRI) 03/07 Arena Mexico
1) Starman & Tony Rivera vs Calígula & Méssala
2) Máscara Púrpura, Mictlán, Stuka Jr. vs Arkangel de la Muerte, Skandalo, Virus
3) Alex Koslov, Marco Corelone, Valiente vs Olímpico, Rey Bucanero, Universo 2000
4) Blue Panther & Dr. Wagner Jr. vs Dos Caras Jr. & LA Park and el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Villano V and Atlantis & Último Guerrero [torneo]
5) Héctor Garza vs Averno

Ovaciones expects the Perros to get involved in the main event. Notimex says the same. Averno (the double world middleweight champion) is here to be the warmup man for Perro two weeks from now, so I’m guessing the run-ins won’t be until after Garza’s clearly won the match. Garza, in an interview with ESTO, says he did not expect it to come to this with Perro, but vows to keep his hair. The article notes he’s still CMLL Trios and WWA Tag champ with the Perros.

We’re supposed to hoping for Wagner/Park to meet in the tournament. Maybe that’ll be a first round match, so the Perros and Guerreros can square off as well.

The family of Black Shadow will appear at the Dos Leyendas show.

IWRG (WED) 03/05 Roots Magic Club [El Sol de Cuautla, MT, ESTO]
1) Fantasma de la Ópera, Freelance, Multifacético b Black Terry, Trauma I, Trauma II
2) Mascarita Sagrada (original), Skaide, Voladorcito b Bracito de Plata, Katito Kung Lee, Pentagoncito
3) el Hijo Del Anibal, Groon XXX, Rayo de Jalisco Jr. DQ Canek, Hijo del Cien Caras, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr.

I can’t believe this was really a three match card. Are they going to show one match per hour?

Hijo de Anibal won the Leyenda de Seda tournament last night. Universo 2000 made another surprise appearance. I wonder if he’ll make his scheduled appearance tonight.

Ovaciones profiles Gato Eveready. He says he’s a five year vet from San Cristobal de la Casas, Chiapas. He also says he could’ve gone to the Atlanta Summer Olympics, but he decided to dedicate himself to professional wrestling instead. Let’s make believe this does immediately sound like a tall tale and examine it a bit more:

year Gato Eveready claims he started wrestling: 2003, five years ago
year of the Atlanta Summer Olympics: 1996
so he was learning professional wrestling for 7 years?

Gato Eveready would like to fight all the top wrestlers in AAA and get a shot at Octagon’s title, just to test himself.

“Que Viva La Lucha”, a film about lucha libre in Tijuana (including Extreme Tiger) is part of the San Diego Latino Film Festival. It airs Saturday at 5pm. Sign On San Diego has an interview with the filmmaker.

El Sol de San Luis Potosi writes about the Wednesday’s AAA taping being a big success. ESTO writes about Mesias’s return.

2) Chico del Barrio, Espanto Jr., Sexi Piscis vs Mini 5X, Principe de Oro, Sexy Francis
3) 5X, Huracan Ramirez, Ultraman vs Cien Caras Jr., Kaoma Jr., Mascara Ano 2000 Jr.

If I understand this right, each match in the tournament will go eight minutes, and they’ll determine the winner by fan applause. That’s different.

Why don’t I have every copy of the Mistico comic book? I do not think it can get greater than KeMonito in a knife fight. The posts notes the lack of continuity between panels, which would seem to be an issue.

Where does KeMonito shop for shoes, anyway?

Projected Air Date (#827)
Mexico: 03/17/08
US: 04/05/08

Mesias did return, thought not until after the main event. Hell Brothers won when Cibernetico showed up to attack Konnan, and Mesias took advantage of the chance to rant at all his rivals at the same time. He’s going to end Cibernetico and get revenge on Zorro and the Legion for taking him out.

Zorro, a winner yet again, was busy complaining to Prez Roldan about the level of his matches. Roldan told him to stop whining or leave. Mari gave Fabi the Michinoku driver again for the win, and Fabi was strechered out again.

Laredo Kid replaced Octagon and picked up the pin on Scorpio Jr.

Psicosis and Abismo did not get along, but Abismo still manged to be Alebrije to advance.

Not sure why two tecnicos and a rudo teamed up to face the clowns, but it probably didn’t matter too much. This is win #79 (so they’ve won seven matches in four days!), and they’re still heavily pushing the match with the Hell Brothers. The Hell Brothers have better things to do at Rey de Reyes, so this is going on for a while longer.

Mini Abismo pinned Sagrada in the opener.

Rey De Reyes Qualifiers (14 of 16)
