Box Y Lucha posted a lot of articles on Friday, including interviews with Dr. Wagner Jr., Tirantes, Psicosis II, Xtreme Tiger, Sexi Star, Hiroka, CMLL trainee Acuarius, CMLL trainee Insolito, and Chipas area champ Rey Persa. Plus, Villano III talks about learning to stick up wounds.
Newspaper rankings for AAA wrestlers have Sexi Star 1st, evil Zorro 5th, and good Zorro 10th.
DJ Spectro has a good post about the different types of referees.
CMLL (TUE) 10/20 Arena Mexico
1) Apolo Estrada Jr. & Sensei vs Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Dr. X, Hooligan, Nitro vs Astro Boy, Guerrero Maya Jr., Starman
3) Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Violencia, Pierrothito vs Bracito de Oro, Eléctrico, Mascarita Dorada
4) La Sombra, Máscara Dorada, Toscano vs Felino, Heavy Metal, Virus
5) Naito, Ray Mendoza Jr., Yujiro vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
The segunda has 3 of the 12. I’ve been leaning towards Hooligan as my pick for loser, but would he really just show up 2 days later without a mask? (Yea, maybe.) Minis match has a good spot though not the best lineup. They haven’t done No Limit/V5 vs Avernos before – usually they’re together. Hmmm.
CMLL (FRI) 10/23 Arena Mexico
1) Yezca & Zeuxis vs Estrella Mágica & Lluvia
2) Pequeño Damian 666 vs Bam Bam [lightning]
3) Dragon Rojo Jr., Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca vs Hijo del Fantasma, La Máscara, Valiente
4) Naito, Shigeo Okumura, Yujiro vs Black Warrior, Blue Panther, Héctor Garza
5) Averno vs Volador Jr. [NWA MIDDLE]
6) Místico, Shocker, Strong Man vs Atlantis, Negro Casas, Último Guerrero
How do they determine which middleweight title it is? Coin flip? Does Averno just reach into a dark closet, and it’s whatever title he pulls out.
Lots of rematches – 3, 4 (maybe it’ll be Garza/Panther? vs No Limit – building new stars!!), 5, 6, and they’ve done the lightning match before. That opener is also exciting for all the wrong reasons.
CMLL (SUN) 10/25 Arena Mexico
1) Inquisidor & Semental vs Bengala & Trueno
2) Amapola, La Nazi, La Seductora vs Estrella Mágica, Marcela, Zeuxis
3) Leono, Starman, Tony Rivera vs Arkangel de la Muerte, Loco Max, Skándalo
4) Máximo, Sagrado, Valiente vs Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca, Shigeo Okumura
5) Brazo de Plata, Héctor Garza, Shocker vs Naito, Ray Mendoza Jr., Yujiro
And, he’s back. There was some talk that AAA had taken ownership of “Brazo de Plata” (and “Super Porky”), and CMLL was staying away from all ex-AAA guys who didn’t own their names. Doesn’t appear to be the case, but it’s something worth watching.
Poder Mexica should not be succesfully teaming with Okumura.
We can add Arkangel and Skandalo to those working the next week, which leaves:
- Tiger Kid
- Ángel de Oro
- Tigre Blanco
- Rey Cometa
None of those 7 are scheduled for Puebla. We don’t have a Tuesday lineup for GDL yet.
Actual News Item: CMLL.com confirms that Misterioso II is in and Black Warrior is out of Poder Mexica. No mention of where this leaves the Mexican National Trios Titles.
