04/27 Aurora Lucha results

indy (FRI) 04/27 Prisco Community Center, Aurora, IL
3) Lancer 2000, SWAT Kat, Mini Charly Manson (Chicago) b Gringo Loco, Guerrerito del Futuro, Malefico I
4) La Parkita, Tzuki b Espectrito, Pequeno Violencia
5) Blue Demon Jr., Mascara Sagrada b Aguila del America, Cassandro

I think this was the OMLL crew, but no one really made a big deal of naming the group so I’m not totally sure. Same park district building where past Aurora events have been run, though I might have called it something differently before.

This was crosspromotion with the Blue Demon energy drink – he’s signing some autographs to promote it more tomorrow, as well as doing another show. They were selling the drinks among the normal concessions, and they had a life sized cutout of Demon promoting the drink for people to snap pictures. A big screen was set up, but didn’t seem used for more than rotating ads and, later, a video for Blue Demon’s entrance. They also had fancy stage strobe lighting set up in one side of the gym, facing the main bleachers. It didn’t seem to make sense to me – why would you want all the lighting on one side of the ring? – and when they tride to use the lighting rig as the only lights pointed at the ring, that meant the lights were also pointed directly at the main bleachers. They smartened up and cut that. They also had a DJ, who seemed to be hip enough to lucha to play familiar songs – We Will Rock You, Shocker’s theme, Porky’s theme, etc – or maybe he was just lucky. None (or lesser equivalents) was at previous shows, and I’m sure it’s part of the drink deal.

The promoter was video taping early in the show from ringside with a handheld camera, but he seemed to disappear later in the show. He kept having to turn and/or shout to various people to get ring announcements when he wanted, lights to be fixed, etc., so he might just have realized he was too busy to do videotaping. Or he just wanted certain people’s matches taped. Don’t be holding your breath for a DVD of this one.

The referee wore a CMLL referee shirt. A vast improvement!

There was an opener, but they decided to start the show while there was still tons of people in line, waiting and wanting to get in. Match was over, I was still in line. (I still had to pay full price for the ticket, even though I wasn’t getting full price. I didn’t expect them to start discounting the tickets, but starting the show when you know you have a ton of people waiting outside was just dumb, because it made an annoyed impatient line even less so. Poor ticket takers.) Building was full or very very close to it, which surely contributed to the line problems. They’ve never had this near this many people at previous shows at this venue, and my guess is someone did a great job of promotion the show (again, the drink people? I dunno.) Crowd was hot (so was the room) and easy all night. Whoever got the audience for this in the house should do it for every show ever.

I did see the second match – a pairs match – but I couldn’t make out the names and I wasn’t paying close attention. I believe one was Aguila Tapatia Jr., and his tecnico partner was Guerrero something or other. No chance on the rudos. This was lucha style, but with the usual Chicago lucha undercard idea of trying to do every single lucha spot they can think to do. They did the Star – everyone always does the Star just to show off that they, in fact, can do the Star, and not because they’re building to that spot or something crazy like that. Tecnicos won this match, and every match on the show I saw.

In between second and third matches, there was a unannounced 30minute-ish intermission. Which made starting the show early even dumber. I think I figured out why it happened later on, but still, that’s dumb. It’s indy lucha in Chicago, I guess.

I got up from my seat on a bleacher far away from the ring (that’s what $30 for ringside will get you if you’re stuck at the end of a line) near the start of the third match just to stretch my legs, and within 20 seconds, someone grabbed my seat. And that was the end of me being able to get a seat the rest of the night. I could have squeezed myself in somewhere, but I didn’t want to, and was in a fidgety mood anyway. My legs wish I sat down, though.

Gringo Loco and Mini Charly weren’t on the announced card, and I was very happy to see them. This is the same match they’ve been doing at these shows, but I hadn’t seen it in a while, and it’s still good. Mini Charly was HUGELY over – I don’t know if they thought he was the guy from TV (either one) or if they thought he just had a good gimmick or if there was something here I had no cluse about, but he they were loudly behind him before he did a single thing – they did a little with this, but they probably could’ve done more. Crowd was so hot, when Gringo Loco started mockingly chanting for Mini Charly, the crowd loudly started the chant for real. He got in a great tornillo to the floor and looks improved. SWAT Kat looked sharper than the last time I saw him. Gringo Loco was a heat magnet and great as usual. Malefico and Guerrerito del Futuro were good. Lancer 2000, who had a new mask, was cringeworthy bad and off on everything.

Tzuki must’ve lost his luggage, and maybe the break was in hopes to turn it up. Instead of his gear, Tzuki wore a leather jacket to the ring, jeans, no shirt, and a Rey Misterio mask. I’m 99% sure it was him, because no one else is Tzuki’s size and moves like him, but he really didn’t do much in this match. Largerly La Parkita comedy – groin-related, partners confused into hitting each other, that sort of stuff. I did enjoy how La Parkita would convulse in laughter everytime he pulled off a trick on the rudas. Most guys act like they’re doing pranks just to make the rudos look bad, but La Parkita was acting like it was the funniest thing every, anytime one worked. Security was working hard to protect the name talent as they went to and from the ring, despite no barriers. In Tzuki’s case, to prevent him from being mobbed from kids, they had him sit on a security’s guy shoulders as he cut through the crowd and quickly got to the back. That was pretty great.

Aguila del America came out with a Mini Aguila del America (son? young kid, defintely). After the tecnico won the first fall, they kidnapped the child, took the Aguila del America mask off him, and put on a Mascara Sagrada on him. Aguila was sad – but later, Mini Aguila got his normal mask back on, and got in cheap kicks from the apron on Sagrada while Dad held him now. The kid’s work done, he went directly to the front row to sit with his family, and got mobbed by other kids looking for autographs. Security had to bail him out.

Main event was otherwise as you expect, Cassandro doing her bits, Sagrada looking fat (seeing him live, I think he’s lost about 5-10 pounds – but he could stand to lose more), Aguila just bumping for the bigger names. Demon was more fired up in the third fall than I’m used to seeing him, and he got the Devil’s Wings on Aguila for the pin. I left right after the match ended, but it sounded like Sagrada was setting up the One Fall, For The Masks bit with Aguila America.

Tercera was probably the best match in an empty room, but the guys in the top two matches were really good pros about getting the crowd into simpler stuff. The minis match was not a good match – Espectrito and La Parkita aren’t much good at this point – but the crowd still very much enjoyed that match and the main event.

Mini Charly Manson and Gringo Loco were selling posters outside the gym (at the same table! how did they ever manage to get along?!?), and doing some pretty good business. I was going to give congratulate them on their match, but there was a line and I had skipped dinner and was kinda dying, so I bolted. So, you, congratulation on a good match Mini Charly Manson and Gringo Loco, if you happen to read this.

Babbling, so I’m cutting this off.

04/27: AAA TV, Mexico Preview, Puebla, Chicago

cmll

AAA’s got a taping today. Perhaps you’ve forgotten the lineup – it was only announced four weeks ago. The big main event is a six way cage match: Cibernetico, Chessman, El Elegido, El Mesias, Abismo Negro, and whoever replaces La Parka Jr. Semimain is a incredible atomico.

Arena Mexico previews
– Ovaciones
ESTO
Notimex
Mundo de Hoy.

The big show this week is Sunday – I expect that to sell out, and I would guess around 8 or 9,000 here. Main: mini monkey madness. The Perro/Mistico face off in the semimain is getting more attention. No one seems to care about the women’s cibernetico. I guess I will! (If you’re Henrik, or would like to be, skip down to the **************.)

Thanks for coming
Diosa Maya
Seductora
Atenea

Gotta figure this whole match airs somewhere, because what other people is bringing in random people except to put them on TV? I don’t quite understand why this is a 14 person match, but maybe someone here will surprise us and earn a more regular spot. (The bigger achievement is a 12 fall women’s match with no Dark Angel not testing the fans patience.) They’ll be the first three out, at any rate.

Regulars with little chance
Sahori
Medussa
Luna Magica
Rosa Negra
Princesa Blanca
Diana la Cazadora

If Sahori or Luna Magica advance and we get them in singles matches, I may lose my mind. Blanca’s probably not much better, but we don’t see her much. Medussa’s a non-factor, but Rosa Negra has looked good the last couple times I’ve seen her, and I wouldn’t mind her advancing past her normal position here. She’s not going to, but oh well. Diana need work in the ring, but she’s got enough personality and looks that I’m sure they’d do more with her if they had a chance. Her schedule makes her unlikely

Remember, we’re advancing two people from here to a match next week. I’m presuming it’ll be ruda vs tecnica…

Rudas with a real chance
3) La Nazi
2) Princesa Sujei
1) Amapola

The Pierroth influence seems to be on a down ebb the last six months. I don’t know if he’s lost influence, or if they’re just taking a break before ramping him back up again. As long as he’s around and La Nazi is connected with him, I think there’s a chance she could win the title. It’s the least chance of the final five, but there’s an obvious big/small story you can do for the final, and they’ve done it well in trios.

All I ever seem to say about Princesa Sujei is “she seemed much better in AAA”, but she’s been okay in CMLL. A Sujei title reign doesn’t particularly interest me – her big rival is Dark Angel and obviously that won’t work – but she’d be a fine enough opponent to put over one of the tecnicas.

Amapola is the best Mexican ruda female worker of the moment and would be a really fun champion. The problem is, the last time Amapola had a big Arena Mexico singles match, she kinda walked out of the building without letting anyone see much of the her freshly unmasked face, and CMLL was very unhappy. I don’t know if CMLL is over that; I’ll be remained ever convinced she was passed over for the CMLL title for that reason, and it’s not like CMLL gets over things very quickly. I think Amapola’s a strong bet for moving on, because it’ll be the best match, but I don’t know from there.

Tecnicas with a real chance
2) India Sioux
1) Marcela

That’s it. That’s the list.

India’s not ready for a big spot like this, unless they’ve been secretly working on the title match or something. It’s way too soon to give her a title – she’s an appealing tecnica, and I think India challenging for a title against a respected but evil ruda is one of the few things in this division that might be a draw, and I wouldn’t give it up this quick. You could do worse than having India in the title match; unless one of the unknowns shows up big, this is a weak tecnica side.

Is Marcela the best Mexican tecnica worker of the moment? Yea, I think so. She’s quality, but she’s missing a spark that makes you realy want to see her. Marcela seems like a great secondary tecnica, a fine worker who could be the top women’s sidekick or put over the feared ruda to build her up for another challenger. I don’t think she’s a top star, and it’s really impossible for her to be when Dark Angel and Lady Apache are ahead of her.

The Mexican Women’s Belt, it really means nothing at the moment. It was part of Lady Apache’s wardrobe, not a meaningful championship. Having Amapola face Marecla, the best possible match from this lineup, would be a good first step in making something of it, but the most important part is what they do with the belt after the title match. They’re investing too much time to just forget about it in a couple weeks.

**************

Ovaciones and AAA’s site talk about La Parka Jr., El Brazo and Chucky visiting a children’s hospital. I say this everytime, but I totally wouldn’t be sending CHUCKY to a children’s hospital. Still, it’s a nice gesture. A lot of lucha types seem to take time to visit with kids during this weekend every year.

CMLL (FRI) 03/30 Arena Puebla
1) Alex Koslov, Lizmark Jr., Marco Corelone vs Atlantis, Ultimo Guerrero, Universo 2000
2) Rey Bucanero vs Hector Garza [CMLL LH]

VIP has rescheduled their next show for 05/12. Perros del Mal are not on the lineup. They’re running a small fair show on Sunday for Kid’s Day as well.

Perro Aguayo Jr. wants people to keep voting for him, so he stays on his reality show. Fair enough.

the Yahoo Picture Wire has a bunch of shots from a recent Coliseo Guadalajara show.

Blue Demon Jr. will be in Chicago tomorrow to sign autographs and promote his energy drink. I’m surprised that no one local is trying to split the cost and run a show with him….

OH! Someone is!

Scheduled: Blue Demon Jr., Mascara Sagrada, Casandro, La Parkita, Tzuki, Espectritio, Pequeno Violencia, Aguila del America, Lancer 2000, Guerrerito del Futuro, SWAT Kat, Lupillo el Terrible, Aguila Tapatia Jr., Halcon Galactico, Mia Martinez, Great Cheyene.

Friday: (150 W Illinois Ave., Aurora, IL); doors open 6, bell at 6:30
Saturday: (351 Oakwood Ave., Waukegan, IL); doors open 6, bell at 7
Tickets are $10 for kids, $25 for general, $30 for ringside (329 Mexican pesos)

After my freakout/meltdown with the last show I tried to go to, I’ve kinda distanced myself from such things for a bit. This one is 15 mintes from my house, so even though I’ve seen all the names on this list live at this point, I sorta have to go, right? Maybe.

(HoyInternet) There’s a lucha show in LA on Sunday, including Los Chivos and Magno.

Not to say Mistico’s a star, El Universal has a story about his face being partially exposed in a Black Warrior mask, plus a photo of the Incident. That’s all the article is. The people at El Universal don’t watch the TV show much, I’m thinking.

IWRG’s site is still down.

05/06 AAA TV Lineup (Oaxaca)

Previous: 04/15, 04/20, 04/27(lineup only)

AAA TV (SUN) 05/06 Explanada del Estadio de Futbol de Oaxaca
1) Mini Abismo Negro & Mini Histeria vs Mascarita Divina & Mascarita Sagrada
2) Cinthia Moreno, Estrellita, Sexy Star vs Fabi Apache, Rossy Moreno, Tiffany
3) Laredo Kid, Rey Cometa, Super FLy vs Alan, Decnnis, El Apache
4) Cuervo, Espiritu, Ozz, Scoria vs Crazy Boy, Joe Lider, Juventud Guerrera, Psicosis
5) Charly Manson vs Mesias
6) Intocable, Super Porky, Zorro vs Abismo Negro, Kenzo Suzuki, X-Pac

Air Date
Mex: 05/12
US: 06/02

X-Pac’s back again. I don’t know why, but he is. He’s listed as having “Linda Web” as a second, whom I can only assume is his current girlfriend.

Konnan and Cibernetico, both who seem to be wrestling the same amount, are seconds in the singles match.

La Parka Jr. is scheduled to appear.

This Fabi/Billy/Apache thing doesn’t appear to be going well for the married couple. They’re separated, Billy’s responsible for all his team’s losses and they hate him so much for it that they’ve turned on him and teamed up with his evil father-in-law, and Fabi’s now a ruda against the woman who might have been stealing her husband.

Next Tapings
– 05/12 Apizaco, Tlaxcala
– 05/20 Morelia
– 05/26 Minatitlan, Veracruz
– 05/30 San Luis Potosi

CMLL FSE GDR #37

Taped 04/13 and 04/15, aired 04/22

I don’t think the Jeque/Stuka match was on it’s way to being a good match – Jeque was obviously going for his finisher next, Stuka would kick out of it (why protect it at this point), and maybe a couple more nearfalls before Stuka got the STO or a moonsault or something. It was going to be okay, fitting of the feud.

I think, in Tigre Hispano’s mind, he did everything right, and the rest of the world messed up. In reality, he either needed to not hit the mat a third time (and maybe I’ll cut him slack next time he way too obviously holds up early) or he needed to make a much bigger display that it was only a two count. Just one double arm wave motion doesn’t work, and it killed this match.

04/26: AAA TV scheduled, Ticketmaster, Queretaro,

AAA’s announced it’s May TV tapings in Ovaciones.
– 05/06 Oaxaca
– 05/12 Apizaco, Tlaxcala
– 05/20 Morelia
– 05/26 Minatitlan, Veracruz
– 05/30 San Luis Potosi

What’s great is El Sol de San Luis Potosi writes a lucha libre article about every day and quite of the same exact article (I swear there’s been ten weekdays straight of hype for the Mistico show on 05/02), so we’ll know how the month ends well before the middle cards are announced. Ovaciones says AAA is not sure when they’ll run TripleMania yet and may do it in May, which would be a surprise to me.

Ovaciones also says CMLL is talking about starting selling tickers on Ticketmaster again, starting on 05/19.

Luchas 200 #365 teases the return of Perro Aguayo Sr.

CMLL (TUE) 04/24 Arena Queretaro Lineup [Knotty @ El Martinete]
1) Espiritu Negro b Alasthor
2) Drabek I & Drabek II vs Fuego Latino & Ozuno
3) El Corsario & Perro del Ring b Toro & Ursus
4) Arkangel & Dr. X ?? Leono & Sagrado
5) La Mascara, Mistico, Volador Jr. b Averno, Mephisto, Sangre Azteca

AAA (TUE) 04/24 Foro Tecate de Culiacan [KrisZ,
rodi-619 @ el martinete
]
1) Doberman & El Anesteciador b Astro Boy & Frank el Payaso
2) El Delfin & Orion b ? & El Halcon
3) La Parkita & Mini Path Finder b Mini Charly Manson & Mini Chessman
4) Crazy Boy, Joe Lider, Juventud Guerrera b Cuervo, Espiritu, Ozz
5) Octagon b Fuerza Guerrera [MEX MIDDLE]

Top 3 matches were all people sneaking in fouls for wins. YAY lameness.

CMLL FSE GDR #36

Taped 04/08, aired 04/15

These four week builds to stip matches, they’re not really working. I mean, this was fitting enough to build up the match, but I don’t think anyone really cares about the match or feud or whatever. It worked with Flecha because it hadn’t been done a bunch and because Flecha was a more interseting wrestler. Jeque is pretty nondescript, and Stuka needs some help to carry this.

There’s something deeply amusing about Tiger Metalico bailing out on Halloween’s big move it hits.

Tags: , ,

CMLL CAN52 GDR #74

Taped 04/15/07, aired 04/21/07

FdT vs Maximo and friends is a comedy feud, which I guess I should’ve figured. In that vein, this should be a perfect title match for Kid’s Day, though probably not with the happy finish or anything.

Interesting that the main event challenges were around the tag team belts, not the NWA Title as it’s turning it out. Could they not figure out a partner for Warrior? Is Negro busy? Is Negro hurt? Maybe it was a simple change of plans.

Tags: , ,

04/27-04/29 Lucha Times

AAAUS: Kenzo vs Ciber vs Parka in a bull terrier match, and Reina de Reinas.

CAN52: The Debut of The New New New New Infernals! (Probably)

FSE: Pushed off to midnight, maybe, probably. Preview says Dark Angel vs Princesa Sujei, which would be, in fact, a preview for this week instead of this past week. Mex Trios lead up match too.

AAAMEX: Lucha in the rain.

CMLLMEX: Not quite sure how the Cibernetico affects things, if that’ll shift to CAN52 GdR or what. If they pull the Coliseo match, Brillante makes TV.

04/24: Coliseo, Vampiro, Mass at Arena Mexico

Last night’s Coliseo show was an odd one. Someone felt like booking angles, which is bizarre for a Tuesday show.

CMLL (TUE) 04/24 Arena Coliseo [ovaciones, cmll, DIOS @ box y lucha]
1) Rayo Tapatio I & Rayo Tapatio II DQ Caligula & Messala
2) Brillante, Stuka Jr., Tony Rivera b Artillero, Hooligan, Super Comando
3) Euforia, Loco Max, Nosferatu b Felino, Mictlan, Satanico
4) Maximo, Texano Jr., Virus DQ Goto, Ohara, Okumura
5) Alex Koslov, Negro Casas, Shocker b Atlantis, Tarzan Boy, Ultimo Guerrero

Alex submitted Atlantis in the main event. This is their fourth straight Tuesday opposing each other, and it sounds like it’ll be five, because Alex wants a shot at the NWA Light Heavyweight Title.

Maximo and Texano Jr. got ramped up for their big title defense on Sunday…by turning on each other! It looks like Maximo got a five man beating, with both Texano and Virus attacking him (which someone meant they won by DQ, but never mind.) No idea why – Ovaciones mentions “miscommunication”, and hints we’re already headed to a Virus/Maximo hair match. Sagrado/Texano/Maximo have zero chance of retaining the Mexican trios belts on Sunday.

In the tercera, Satanico returned to do rudo side on a permanent basis, betraying Mictlan and Felino to help his new students (Eufora and Nosferatu.) After the match, the Nuevo Nuevo Nuevo Infernales beat up Loco Max for good measure.

Caligula yanked one of the Tapatios masks. Stuka beat Super Comando.

CMLL (TUE) 05/01 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Thunder Boy vs Milenio
2) Casanova vs Fraile de la Muerte
3) Idolo vs Mr. Trueno
4) Evola vs Danger
5) Leon Blanco vs Egipcio
6) Gallo, Magnum, Stuka vs Malefico, Mascara Magica, Toxico
7) Rayman & Vampiro vs Black Warrior & Eclipse

So he’s back as a tecnico. Good to know.

(El Porvenir) Arena Mexico is often called the cathederal of Lucha Libre. This Saturday, it’s going to be a stand in church. As far as I can tell from the article, they’re having a religion convention at the normal huge church in town. It wraps up on Sunday, but theyr’e not going to be able to hold Saturday mass there as a result, and so they’re renting out Arena Mexico. To cover the rent, they’re selling tickets to church – ringside tickets are 50 pesos ($4.55US). I hope service is randomly interrupted by a Mistico chant.

This means Arena Mexico will have an event three straight days (normal Arena Mexico, mass, special show on Sunday), and also three Saturdays in a row (mass, Luchas 2000, Toryumon)

AAA’s preview of Friday’s taping including Crazy Boy talking about extreme wrestling.

(Suburban Chicago News) About 1.5 hour away from me, in Waukegan, IL, the library will be celebrating Day of the Kid by bringing in Espectro and La Parkita (listed here as brothers) to talk about life as lucha libre wrestler. Those pictures sure look familiar.

(Beaumont Journal) Beaumont, TX’s first ever Cinco de Mayo festival will include some lucha libre matches; main event is Pentagon Black/Xochitl Hamada vs Sicodelico Jr./Miss Vicky. Tickets are $15-$25 for the whole event, including a music peformance which seems to be the main act. You can get the tickets around town, and at ticketmaster.com

El Sol de Tampico has a obit for wrestler Alejandro Montana.
