Okumura fouled Maximo. I’ve seen Okumura being credited with and the tecnicos being credited with a DQ win. Dunno.

Top two matches were both clean finishes. Mistico got Averno, and Ovaciones mentions Mistico wants a title match.

UWE (WED) 07/01 Arena Lopes Mateos [WagnerMania]

Apolo Dantes talked to MT about being removed as head of Arena Coliseo Guadalajara. The building’s accountant is in charge at the moment. Apolo hopes his work will be better remembered down the road and is looking to get into business outside of wrestling.

Atlantis visited a school.

Box Y Lucha has an interview with Dos Caras Jr.’s mom, Extreme Tiger talking about his career, a column noting there’s probably a lot of titles in Mexico, Villano III discussing the dangers of tourist visas, and has a video interview with Hiroka. The most interesting article is with El Faraon, who reveals Hijo del Faraon was not actually related to him (his actual son is into soccer, he refers to this one as his god son), so they decided to have no longer wrestle under that name.

Vanguardia has a interview with Salitllo wrestler El Guardian.

Lineups when they turn up.

07/03 AAA TV Results (Queretaro)

AAA TV (FRI) 07/03 Gimnasio Jose Maria Arteaga, Queretaro, Queretaro [AAA]
1) Billy Boy & Sexy StarAerostar & Fabi Apache
2) Alan Stone, El Elegido, Extreme TigerCuervo, Escoria, Ozz
3) Killer Clown, Psycho Clown, Zombie ClownAlex Koslov, Rocky Romero, X-Pac
4) Joe Lider & Nicho el MillionarioCibernetico & Mesias
5) Charly Manson, Dr. Wagner Jr., Jack EvansChessman, Silver King, Teddy Hart

2009 AAA TV Chart
Projected Air Date (#896)
Mexico: 07/12
US: 08/01

Show opened with Zorro coming out, explaining he was the guy in the mask at TripleMania who handed the cane to Roldan, and that’s as far as that angle seemed to go on this show.

Fabi Apache bled in her match, thanks to Sexi & Billy. Recap says they strechered her out, and then that she was pinned by Sexi for the win.

Elegido was also hurt in his match (chairshots?), but Xtreme Tiger pinned Scoria.

Psycho Circus are up to 350 wins. They were in trouble until Zorro showed up, caned Piero (by accident), and caned X-Pac (not at all by accident). That feud still seems to exist.

Before the tag match, Cibernetico got the microphone to talk about his strong partnership with Mesias. That should’ve been a clue. Herminadad had Shiima Xion with him, and he ran interference (read: got thrown around a lot.) End was Cibernetico stopping Nicho from hitting him with a chair, getting the chair himself, teasing it, and getting fouled by Lider. Cibernetico blamed his good friend Mesias for not making the save. Mesias tried to explain himself, but was taken out by Los Bizzaros (no names mentioned), who helped Cibernetico destroy Mesias. Cibernetico was suddenly angry about Mesias stealing his place when Cibernetico was not around. OK.

After fighting each other with no special consideration for a couple months, Dr. Wagner & Silver King are refused to fight each other after teaming up last week. This angered Teddy & Chessman, who wanted to just fight their rivals. In the end, Wagner did end up giving the Wagner Driver to Silver King.  Chessman and Teddy Hart turned on Silver King after the match, and Wagner belatedly make the save. After, Silver King agreed to team up with Dr. Wagner, so it looks like Silver King is a tecnico. Parka’s going to be ticked.

Lucha Libre Expo lineups

There’s cards up for the rescheduled shows on their website, but some of them look a bit iffy.

MD (FRI) 07/24 Centro Banamex, DF
1) Damian el Inmortal, Destroyer, Emperador, Flecha, Fobia vs Bengala, Estruendo, Guerrero Aguila, La Maravilla, Principe
2) Bronce, Oro, Plata vs Aguila Venesolana, Impla, Memo Arenas
3) Matematico, Solar I, Super Astro vs Black Terry, Negro Navarro, Shu el Guerrero
4) Dos Caras Sr., El Fantasma, Mil Mascaras vs Kahoz, Mano Negra, Rambo

No idea who’s playing the Metalicos here.

el Pancracio (FRI) 07/24 Centro Banamex, DF
1) Pinocho 3000 vs Alarido Noctunro, El Mimo, Kumo, Golden Bull, Rambo Jr., Fenix, Kilvan, Sobredosis, Urko, Jordy Boy, Terror Negro, Skullman, Polaris, Distubio, Maldito Jr., Espiral Negro, Angelus, Loock Man, Chac-Mol [torneo el pancracio]
2) Rocky Santana, Super Astro, Super Muneco, Super Pinocho vs Coco Rojo, Coco Verde, Cocolores, Rambo
3) Solar I vs Negro Navarro

Negro & Solar work twice in one day! They are tough.

IWRG (FRI) 07/24 Centro Banamex, DF
1) Eragon & Latin Brother vs Carta Brava & Nemesis IWRG
2) Piratita Morgan vs Mascarita Aerea
3) Freelance, Trauma I, Trauma II vs Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro
4) El Hijo del Solitario, Fuerza Guerrera, Scorpio Jr., Zatura vs Andy Barrow, El Hijo de Pierroth, Head Hunter I, Veneno
5) Elvis Porky, Rayo de Jalisco Jr., Tinieblas Jr. vs Hijo del Cien Caras, Mascara Ano 2000, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr.

This looks like the card from May. Super Porky, Rayo, even the Dinamitas haven’t been around lately.

indy (SAT) 07/25 Centro Banamex, DF
1) Mini Cibernetico & Mini Scorpio vs Mini Pegasso & Mini Zumbido
2) Esther Moreno & Flor Metalica vs La Chola & Rossy Moreno
3) Batman & Robin vs Hijo de Marcus & Marcus Jr.
4) Juventud Guerrera & Zumbido vs Fuerza Guerrera & Scorpio Jr.
5) Mascara Ano 2000, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., Universo 2000 vs Dr. Wagner Jr., Intocable, Olimpico

This was previously a Wagnermania show, but now it’s just “Guerra de Indepedentes.” Whatever you want to call it, it’s a show Wagner would’ve agreed to work before signing the AAA deal and so one AAA’s already agreed to let him work.

CMLL (SAT) 07/25 Centro Banamex, DF
1) Fabian el Gitano & Leono vs Arkangel de la Muerte & Skandalo
2) Dark Angel & Marcela vs Amapola & Princesa Sujei
3) Maximo, Sagrado, Valiente vs Dragon Rojo Jr., Shigeo Okumura, Virus
4) Blue Panther, La Sombra, Volador Jr. vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
5) Hector Garza, Mistico, Shocker vs Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Ultimo Guerrero

A usual lineup.

DTU (SAT) 07/25 Centro Banamex, DF
1) Amo de la Noche & Dement Xtreme vs Aguila Misteriosa & Muerte Bucanero
2) Angel Extremo vs Dark Finder, Disturbio
3) Drastick vs Dinastia, Black Master, Flamita, Masico, Hormiga
4) Black Fire & Dance Boy vs Paranoiko & Toxico DF and Money Pack & Talaxys
5) Shiima Xion vs Ragade
6) ? vs Kaientai, Super Mega, Kemp Dragon
7) ? & Crazy Boy vs Jimmy Jacobs & Violento Jack

Chris Hero was in the main event when this was originally announced, so at least this one looks updated. Main event is still listed as an international fight, so some indy guy is going to be brought in. I guess Xion will be in for a month, or at least back for this one.

The graphic for this line up says Saturday, though the programming listing says Sunday (with CMLL bodybuilding and fashion shows instead of a third card on Saturday.)

AAA TV (SUN) 07/26 Centro Banamex, DF
1) Aerostar, Laredo Kid, Super Fly vs Rio Bravo, Tigre Cota, Tito Santana II
2) Joe Lider & Nicho el Millionario vs Jack Evans & Teddy Hart
3) ? & Vampiro vs Chessman & Extreme Tiger
4) Alex Koslov, Rocky Romero, X-Pac vs Kenzo Suzuki, Silver King, Zorro
5) ?, Charly Manson, Mesias vs Electro Shock, Konnan, Ozz

This is the original lineup, un-updated. (They’ve even got “Nicole” accompanying HF2.) It’s not what’ll occur, for sure. Presumbably, Xion was in the tercera and Cibernetico was in the main event, not that it matters at the moment.

PERROS (SUN) 07/26 Centro Banamex, DF
1) Konami & Super Nova vs Mosco & Pesadilla
2) Celestial & Talisman vs Mr. Aguilita & Pequeño Halloween
3) Brazo de Plata & Juventud Guerrera vs Head Hunter I & Olimpico
4) Cibernetico, Mr. Aguila, Super Crazy vs Damian 666, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Halloween

Again, old lineup. Will Cibernetico still end up working this show? I doubt it, but he’ll surely end up working the AAA show. These two shows will take place back to back, so that’ll cause some drama.

Apolo out in GDL, Super X vs IWRG?, Monterrey

A thread on Box Y Lucha says Apolo Dantes is out as administrator of Arena Coliseo Guadalajara. If I’m remembering account names right, el Makabre is an ex-Arena Coliseo Guadalajara luchador, so he would know. No word on a replacement.

AAA (WED) 07/01 Cancha German Evers
2) Joe Lider & Kempo Dragon b Aerostar & Relampago
3) Alex Koslov & Chris Stone b Alan Stone & Rocky Romero [Relevos Increíbles]
4) Jack Evans, Marco Corleone, Mesias, Relampago b Konnan, Nicho el Millionario, Teddy Hart

Usual bit of local angles in this arena. Joe Lider ended up as specia ref in the main event, but Kempo Dragon – who’d join the Legion on a previous show – turned on the Legion to help the tecnicos win. Lider was here as a fill in for Billy. Semifinal was switched to partners versus partners, and Alex beat Rocky. Clearly, there’s interest in doing more Rocky Romero/Alex Koslov matches after their well received match in the cruiserweight tournament, which may be one reason to turn Alex.

CMLL (WED) 07/01 Gimnasio Marcelino Gonzalez [El Sol de Zacatecas]
5) Hector Garza, Mistico, Toscano b Ephesto, Lizmark Jr., Mephisto

Article mistakes Toscano for Marco Corleone. That seems unlikely. Unsurprising that half the main event (not just Dos, but the non-Lizmark rudos) were different from what was billed the day before.

Friday Arena Mexico preview: ESTO, Record, Ovaciones (who notes this is Guerrero Maya’s Friday debut.) Not much to say about this one.

ESTO also previews tonight’s Arena Neza show, with a Super Crazy/Juvi vs Psicosis/Histeria main event. Ovaciones says Juvi beat Dr. Cerebro last night for his hair, and Dr. Landru notes that it was followed by Juvi’s Super X promotion hitting the ring after the match, so it looks like they’re be feuding with IWRG.

Only note from the Costa Rica tour is Octagon needed six stitches after Zorro cracked him in the head with the cane.

My Tlaltenango has a couple photos of the (postponed) Kid’s Day show there. Doesn’t look like they got a big turnout, but I like how that look of the interior building.

Perros are running Arena Solidaridad on 07/12.

Kcidis draws Cibernetico’s return to AAA

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

indy (SUN) 07/05/2009 Arena Coliseo Monterrey
1) Mini Hator vs Mini Rey Sagitario
2) Black Poison vs Lobo Rojo
3) Black Mamba, Oscuridad, Violento vs Golden Boy, Rey Demonio Jr., Simbolo
4) Hijo del Ninja, Mascara Purpura, Ninja vs Black Fenix, Kendor Jr., Sobredosis
5) Hombre sin Miedo vs Pierko el Boriuca

I think I had this lineup a couple days ago, but it didn’t click that this was the indy guys on Sunday, taking the spot of the normal AAA show. AAA’s pulled out of this building, once again. Perhaps that Ovaciones remark about CMLL running Arena Coliseo Monterrey is closer to being correct…

CMLL (TUE) 07/21 Monumental Plaza de Toros Monterrey [SML]
1) Black Warrior, Dragon Rojo Jr., Sangre Azteca vs La Sombra, Maximo, Valiente
2) Naito, Negro Casas, Yujiro vs Ephesto, Mephisto, Misterioso II
3) Mistico, Shocker, Volador Jr. vs Atlantis, Mr. Niebla, Ultimo Guerrero

…or maybe they meant this show?

Back with more in a little bit.

2009 AAA TV Chart
Projected Air Date (#898)
Mexico: 07/26
US: 08/15

Ah, the taping where Stuff Happens. Those are always fun. Note, we’re jumping over the 12th here (not to mention tomorrow’s, but at least we have a lineup for that.) Things can change.

Only Cibernetico & Mesias have been pushed as the next contender to this title, so they’re the co-favorites. Cibernetico’s probably ahead, since he’s just back. Winner gets the shot at Verano. This might be the same deal as the one Chessman one, where they do it Royal Rumble style. Besides the winner, there’s the Silver King/Parka and Chessman/Charly feuds, plus the first appearance of Zorro since TripleMania (again, unless he appears on 07/12.)

If the Psycho Cirucs is in the semimain here, that would seem to indicate they’re still undefeated at this point.

Triangle tag has some stories lead into it, I guess. Alex with Teddy doesn’t make sense now, but Alex has had rudo moments of late, plus Konnan’s made the point that Koslov should be in the Legion multiple times. It’s possible he could join that side before this match. “Sugi” is Takuya Sugi, who’s had a dozen gimmicks but is best known as El Blazer in Japan. (Doens’t look like he’s ever just wrestled as Takuya Sugi, weirdly enough.) He’s another guy Konnan had talked about bringing in to do the TNA X Division/ROH styles. Sugi will surely be on the 07/19 show as well.

Elegido & Gronda is a weird enough team, but it’s probably also the re-entry point for the original Gronda. Unless something happens again.

I’d guess the wrestlers in the opener will come back to be the lumberjacks in the segunda. This is the first match back for Gran Apache since the injury angle, that I’m not sure anyone remembers.

5) Hector Garza, Hijo del Fantasma, La Mascara DQ Averno, Terrible, Texano Jr.

CMLL put up the results for the opening two. So now you know.

Arena Mexico will be host to a MMA show on July 11. This is the first show; the first show I’ve heard of, I’m sure. It’s a show by Total Combat, which I’ve never head of but surely have seen flipping thru WON. Tickets are going from 100 to 1100 ($7.60 to $83.58). The article the Gladiatores points to says the DF Box Y Lucha commission will be regulating the show.

Tonight’s the big Juvi vs Dr. Cerebro hair vs hair match in IWRG.

AAA says they’re still taping on the 12th. Hooray. I’m really running the Hooray thing straight into the ground.

The Gladiatores talks to Dr. Wagner Jr. about not making that Perros show. As usual, when not standing next to someone from AAA, Wagner says he’s free to work with anyone he wants. They also have a video interview with Chico Che.

Villano IV wants to take the masks of Ultimo Guerrero and Atlantis in revenge for his brothers. He’s surprised CMLL hasn’t booked him to team with Villano V of late and isn’t sure why – though he guesses Ultimo and Atlantis may be scared of him. Outside of wrestling, the Villanos have been running their new gym, which has been open for a month.

LuchandoLibre previews tomorrow’s Arena Neza show

5) Hijo del Fantasma, La Mascara, Mistico vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas

I think everyone was under the impression Mistico and Felino had a title match Sunday. Perhaps someone later decided Fan Appreciation Day was next week?

La Parkita (original)/Espectrito II notes

So, the Parkita/Espectrito II story went viral sometime last night. White people like midgets and sex and death, I guess.

There’s really not much more to say, but since there’s a billion links to stories, I might as well include some of them.

– The women involved are not in custody. The police have put out a sketch of one of the women and they’re working on the second.

AAA sends their condolences, then spends a couple paragraphs making it absolutely clear that these guys were not AAA wrestlers at their time of their death, didn’t really have permission to be using the names they were using, the current AAA La Parkita is a completely different wrestler, and the Espectrito name has been retired since Antonio Pena’s death. (I wonder why they’re so sensitive about this.)

– El Universal runs thru the usual list of recent deaths. (Oh, Abismo, right.)

Pariso de la lucha libre has photos from the funeral. Record talks with Espectrito about his brothers. Universal talks with the family left behind, including their mother (who couldn’t stomach watching them wrestle) and the children, one of who was secretly training in his father’s career.

Ovaciones mentions Bracito de Oro, Fire, Mascarita Ano 2000, Pequeno Gigante, the original Octagoncito among many from IWRG, AAA and other promotions who attended.

– El Manana talks to AAA and Nuevo Laredo wrestlers, who says sometimes it’s more dangerous outside of the ring than in it for a wrestler

El Sol de Mexico says the minis were working for CMLL. That’s wrong, of course. Espectrito II is listed as Espectrito Jr. all over the place, too. As LuchandoLibre pointed out to me in an a tweet, a lot of the obits (including the ESTO one) have Parkita’s debut as 1995. It’s actually 1992; ’95 is more about when Parkita was dropped from AAA

AAA signs licensing deal with Cookie Jar Entertainment

The big news of the day is a press release AAA posted on their site yesterday evening. They’ve named Cookie Jar Entertainment as the exclusive licensing agency for AAA. Cookie Jar Entertainment the right to use AAA wrestlers and names on products; action figures, masks, books, back to school items and collectibles are specifically mentioned, with the target time as early 2010. Of special note to those who read this blog, there’s a mention of “the first series of lucha libre AAA in English.” There’s no ETA mentioned on that.

That’s what we know, based on the press release. What’s missing and how it’s said is interesting. While it’s pushed as a partnership of AAA and Cookie Jar, no one from AAA proper is quoted. Instead, speaking for them is Steve Ship, listed as CEO of Lucha Libre USA. That group is actually the local promoters for the US tour of shows, as well as those in charge of the PPV they did last year. In interviews prior to the latest tour, Konnan’s sounded unhappy about how AAA’s partnership with the US group was going, but the last tour seemed like it went well, and obviously the relationship has to be going well for both sides to expand it like this. I’d figure, though, that these are actually the US licensing rights and Televisa still owns the Mexican ones; Televisa surely has some sort of control here.

As I alluded to in the comments, Cookie Jar Enterainment is a strange fit with AAA. From that list of items they hope to put out, the target audience looks like 6-12 year olds, and Cookie Jar aims for the same age range. The actual product seems so much different. Cookie Jar owns the rights to such things as Strawberry Shortcake, Inspector Gadget*, and the CARE BEARS. That’s a bit of a departure from Crazy Boy breaking a light tube over Joe Lider’s back and the camera zooming in to watch blood flow.

However, AAA’s anime seems a lot closer in tone. Makes me wonder if that’s possibly the AAA we’ll end up seeing in the US; just a lot of marketing and editing (or separate tapings) to focus on the kid-friendly aspects of AAA – lots of minis, comedy (that’s safe for all ages) and people in colorful costumes doing high spots – while cutting out the soap opera and the hardcore bits and the sexual elements. WWE’s gone to a PG product, CMLL’s banned bleeding and restricted un-family friendly brawls, perhaps this is a sign AAA will be going in the same direction.

This doesn’t mean a lot to the product at the moment, but it could be a sign of where they’re going.

Cookie Jar uses Immersion Games to create games for it’s characters. Immersion is making the AAA game, so that’s the obvious meeting point here.

* obligatory cheap joke: most of Dr. Claw’s plans are better thought out than AAA’s stoylines

07/04-05 Lucha Times


AAA-US: Last show before TripleMania, which doesn’t matter much if you still can’t see it. Psycho Clowns make their monthly appearance.

52MX: Infernales vs Flash/Metalico/Cometa, Metal/Misterioso/Sangre vs Dorada/Mictlan/Valiente

LATV: last week’s episode was #108, from August 30, 2008. If you can sense an order to which episodes are airing, you’re better than me. I’ve got the next episode listing on the cart, but who really knows.

CMLL-MEX: Lightning match is listed as fourth, so it’d air on TV. Of course, this is the week it’s Felino vs La Mascara. They may change it around, they’ve done it before. Main is Sombra/Mistico/Volador vs Averno/Ephesto/Mephisto, maybe setting up a title match next week.

AAA-MEX: The results I just went over a post down. Cibernetico’s first match back.

FOX: Women’s trios, Panther/Shocker/Toscano vs V5/No Limit

C3: Set up for next week’s trios match, plus the Romanos make TV.

Puebla: Tag team title match.

Monterrey: Maybe?

2009 AAA TV Chart
Projected Air Date (#895)
Mexico: 07/05
US: 07/25

El Brazo refed the opener, helping the rudos. Yuriko flirted with Gato. Octagoncito had Mini Abismo beat, Brazo stopped counting, Octagoncito argued and got pinned.

Alex got Scoria with the Red Scare for the win in the second match.

Elegido had Decnnis beat, but Brazo returned to distract the ref, allowing Guapito to foul Elegido.

AAA says Shiima looked good, but it sounds as though he still ended up losing to Extreme Tiger.

Wagner & Silver King got along – enough so that we’re supposed to wonder if they’ll still  fight at the show – but Cibernetico beat Silver King for the win.

Next taping is Friday in Queretaro. AAA’s added pages for the announced tapings this month, and lists the Lucha Libre Expo show as a taping. They do not list the 07/12 Tepapulco taping, which makes me wonder if it’s gone in the same black hole as the Acapulco show.
