09/09 AAA TV Lineup (Chihuahua)

Previous: 08/16 (Toluca), 08/19 (Salamanca), 08/31 (Moroleon)

AAA TV (SUN) 09/09 Gimnasio Manuel Bernardo Aguirre de Chihuahua [Dhani @ box y lucha]
1) Mascarita Divina & Octagoncito vs Jerrito Estrada & Mini Chessman
2) Aero Star, Rey Cometa, Super Fly vs Alfa, Gran Apache, Toxico AAA

4) Laredo Kid, Latin Lover, Ricky Marvin vs Abismo Negro, Histeria, Mr. Niebla
5) Charly Manson vs X-Pac
6) Chessman & Zorro vs Cuervo & Ozz [cage]

I’m thinking there’s a taping in between here, but we’ll go with what we have until we get proof otherwise.

How will they manage with no Cibernetico? I don’t think Ricky Marvin’s in for just one show.

Announced Future Tapings
– none


08/25: Mexico results, lineups, CAN52

CMLL (FRI) 08/24 Arena Mexico [Galeno del Mal @ box y lucha, ESTO,
1) Starman & Trueno b Apocalipsis & Ramstein
2) Euforia, Loco Max, Nosferatu b Leono, Neutron, Valiente
3) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto b La Mascara, Sagrado, Sombra
4) Blue Panther, Marco Corelone, Rey Bucanero b Damian 666, Mr. Aguila, Terrible
5) Atlantis, Olimpico, Ultimo Guerrero b Texano Jr., Villano III, Villano V
6) Hijo del Perro Aguayo b Lizmark Jr.

Attendance was said to be down, with rain and the start of the school year brought up as reasons.

Blue Panther walked out during the main event, distracted Lizmark Jr. Perro had the chance to low blow him, but instead ended up pinning Lizmark clean. Ultimo Guerrero ran out after the match, and a four way brawl ended the show.

After this draw and that finish, I’m thinking Lizmark/Perro might end up as the final of the Anniversary show, but only as the ultimate result of some sort of larger match. They’re teasing Ultimo/Lizmark Jr. vs Perro/Panther here. There’s a thread on el martiente saying Reforma is now saying it’ll be a cage match.

Panther wasn’t specficlly teased as a new Perros del Mal member here, but I guess it could go that direction.

Some of the show reports I wsa reading said Atlantis and Villano V were ripping masks in their match, but CMLL.com says it was UG vs Villano V. (The difference is UG around for the Annivesary, I’m sure.) Atlantis won the match clean with the Atlantida.

Panther won his match with a fujiwara on Terrible, who was favoring his arm after. Triad of Terror beat 2/3rds of the new trios champs – seems like either them or the New Infernales would make sense as the next contenders. Opener was said to be bad.

CMLL (TUE) 08/28 Arena Coliseo
1) Sensei & Trueno vs Polvora & Vaquero
2) Angel Azteca Jr., Super Nova, Tony Rivera vs Apocalipsis, Dr. X, Ramstein

08/24: Mexico preview,

Today’s Arena Mexico Card

CMLL (FRI) 08/24 Arena Mexico
1) Starman & Trueno vs Apocalipsis & Ramstein
2) Euforia, Loco Max, Nosferatu vs Flash, Leono, Neutron
3) La Mascara, Sagrado, Sombra vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
4) Blue Panther, Marco Corelone, Rey Bucanero vs Damian 666, Mr. Aguila, Terrible
5) Atlantis, Olimpico, Ultimo Guerrero vs Texano Jr., Villano III, Villano V
6) Hijo del Perro Aguayo vs Lizmark Jr.

Ovacioens has an interview with Lizmark Jr. The article suggests Lizmark may end up jumped by the Perros, and Lizmark thinks about requesting a match for leadership of the Perros. Meanwhile, in ESTO, Lizmark Jr. talks about how he doesn’t need a group at all. Just to top the confusion, this article concludes about how Lizmark should much rather have Blue Panther’s mask than Perro’s hair.

ESTO previews the rest of the card too.

AAA (THU) 08/23 Polideportivo Ignacio Manuel Altamirano de Ciudad Universitariad [Tiburon_Blanco]
1) Sexy Danny & Willie el Hermoso DQ Crazy Boy & Joe Estrada
2) Mini Pegaso & Mini Rey Cometa b Mini Cibernetico & Mini Espiritu
3) Atreyu & Milenium DQ Forajido & Guerrero 2000
4) Crazy Boy, Joe Lider, Super Porky b Chris Stone, El Perverso, Mr. Niebla
5) Elegido, Gronda II, Juventud Guerrera b Abismo Negro, Fuerza Guerrera, Head Hunter I

Lots of people showed up, but it was a free show.

AAA (SUN) 09/02 Poliforo Juan Gabriel, Ciudad Juarez [Sergio Guzman velazquez]
1) Mascartia Divina & Octagoncito vs Mini Charly Manson & Mini Chessman
2) ?, Billy Boy, Takeda vs Cinta de Oro, Gran Apache, Scorpio 2000
3) El Brazo, Magno, Mistico (Juarez) vs ?, Ari Romero Jr., Zumbido
4) HIjo del Santo, Mil Mascaras, Tinieblas Jr. vs Ari Romero, Hator, Mr. Niebla

Random spot show with someone putting up quite a bit to get both AAA talent, Mil and Santo. Surely what you’d be seeing advertised on XEJ-TV if it was still free.

AAA IN NOAH (thanks again to Green Destiny)
08/23: not taped

2. Kotaro Suzuki & Ricky Marvin beat Antifaz & Histeria (13:34) when Marvin used the Santa Maria on Histeria.
4. KENTA, Taiji Ishimori & Rocky Romero beat Naomichi Marufuji, El Oriental & Laredo Kid (14:10) when Romero used a cross armbreaker on Oriental.

AAA #638

taped 07/15, aired in the US on 08/18

You know, they could’ve just not shown the Animal Atomico in the US, and just shown this one week of TripleMania to catch up one week. I think everyone would’ve been fine with that. Alas.

1: Opener was GREAT. They were working like they got a bonus if they stole the show, and they would’ve deserved one. If Cassandro can go like this every time he’s in, he’s got to be in much more often. If all the Oriental/Cinthia vs Alfa/Fabi stuff is this good, then I’m going to be really annoyed they detoured back into the Hamada stuff. I want more of this.

4: I expected more of the mask match. Sometimes, CMLL over does it with the near falls near the ned of the match. This match seemed to be a rare case of going the other way – it seems like they should’ve done more, and it really seemed like an odd choice of finish – if there was some reason Super Fly won with a power move, I didn’t get it.

5: The problem with the Mexican Powers is, even when they do good stuff, they’re doing imitations of matches that were better than them. It’s clearly not as much a problem to the crowd as it is to me – they don’t get docked points for bad homages by people who never saw the originals. I think this would’ve been much helped if they just did a normal ladder match, with the belts hanging in the air. Otherwise, it’s pretty much just another Mexican Powers match, with ladders at ringside.

6: This was better than I thought it’d be. The cage did look cool, but it must’ve been heck to climb. I couldn’t believe the bumps some guys were taking from hanging on the underside of the cage, especially a guy like X-Pac who would seem just to be here to cash a check. The cage bits hid the usual problems with these matches, and there seemed to be a lot less dead brawling.

They tried to make this mean something, which is more than you’d expect for Kenzo dropping his hair again. And points for making sure it got on TV. I was surprised at what didn’t (Calo with the Stones, Lider getting stretchered out.)

I want to get in another recap this week, but we’ll see. I’m happy to be caught up.

08/23: Wagner, Guadalajara


Dr. Wagner’s wife is quoted in today’s Ovaciones, saying Wagner’s condition is worse than expected. He’s rehabbing hard, wants to return soon and will visit the doctor on Thursday. They’ll know how close Wagner actually is to returning at that time.

Atlantis is interviewed in ESTO, claiming his mask is more valuable than el Hijo del Santo. He actually tries to defend this:
– he’s beaten bigger stars in his mask/mask matches, so his mask is more valid
– he’s done more in Arena Mexico
– he’s a living legend and world wide star

Perro’s still teasing a new Perro any time now.

NAH. Good try, though.

Lizmark Jr. vs Perro Jr. is CMLL Anniversary Main Event

Both Ovaciones and Super Luchas are hearing from their sources the same Reforma reported earlier in the week: Lizmark Jr. vs Perro Aguayo Jr. in a match vs hair is the CMLL 74th Anniversary main event. Rumored press conference is still supposed to be Tuesday. Super Luchas says the match will be on 09/28.

Theoretically, we’ll get a strong semimain (though it depends on who’s cleared to wrestle – more on that later), but that’s a horribly disappointing card. I think I would rather see Terrible vs Blue Panther, all things considered. It may still draw good, because it’s Perro in a hair match, but it’s barely more than an Arena Coliseo B-Show feud (some of those have been actually better than this.)

Lizmark Jr. is quite obviously losing his mask.

Last 5 Anniversary shows

2006/09/29: Black Warrior vs Mistico [mask]

08/24-08/26 Lucha Times

AAAUS: the day after TripleMania…which is kinda more than same. So it goes. No overnight airing, and it looks like galavision.com’s listings are still busted. What can you do.

FSE (US): No repeat of last week’s episode. This week’s opener looks interesting. Main is Guerreros vs High Society, so not so much.

CAN52: Flying blind here, but I’m thinking the Emilio/Purpura stuff will end up on this network.

CMLLMEX: I’m predicting Caligula in the preview, so there’s now ZERO chance they’ll be on TV.

AAAMEX: The start of the AAA Heavyweight Tournament. How long you think Cibernetico/Niebla lasted? 4 minutes?

FSEMEX: Speaking of heavyweight title matches – DOS VS LIZMARK. Good to book a program where Lizmark Jr. loses five weeks before he’s supposed to headline the biggest show of the year. Sunday booker SO doesn’t talk to Friday booker.



taped 02/04, aired 02/11

Satanico’s so much more useful as a rudo, I have no idea what took so long to get him back there. Wasn’t much to say for him here.

While I’m unfairly looking in hindsight, CMLL probably would’ve been better off never signing Fabian and giving Alan Stone the gimmick and a push. He’s just doing the rudo version of it in AAA, and he’s so much better (though everyone’s at least somewhat better.)

I have no good justification for believing this, but I’m sure Loco Max has wrestled as Spider-Man on random DF spot shows. He’d be Spider-Man on these shows if they let him, even though it makes no sense for a supposed rudo guy to be dressing up like a superhero. I think it’s best we don’t try to figure out what Loco Max is thinking at any time.

Warrior vs Mistico is the same Warrior vs Mistico match they’ve done many many times. It seemed fresher because I hadn’t seen it for a while, but I think I can call the match in my sleep at this point. Only the finish changes, and it’s not as though they were even polishing the same sequences.

08/22: Coliseo

CMLL (TUE) 08/21 Arena Coliseo
1) Polvora & Vaquero b Sensei & Tiger Kid
2) Metalico, Super Nova, Tony Rivera b Artillero, Nitro, Super Comando
3) Mr. Mexico, Satanico, Virus b Flash, Stuka Jr., Valiente
4) Alex Koslov, Maximo, Ogun b Eclipse, Misterioso Jr., Sangre Azteca
5) Dos Caras Jr., Heavy Metal, Marco Corelone b Atlantis, Toscano, Ultimo Guerrero
Tony replaced Leono. Leono’s got to be out hurt.

CMLL WAGNER (FRI) 09/14 Torreon
1) Bam Bam & Electrico vs Mini Damian 666 & Mini Halloween
2) Sexy Piscis vs Sexy Libra [hair]
3) Alex Koslov & Silver King vs Maximo & Sangre Azteca
4) Atlantis & Ultimo Guerrero vs Dr. Wagner Jr. & Marco Corelone

So, they’re running this show for sure, they just have no idea what building the show’s going to be in. This seems a bit worrisome. Also, Maximo & Sangre Azteca? Not a good night for Sangre.

AAA IN NOAH (via Green Destiny)
08/22 – not a TV taping
1) Ricky Marvin beat Laredo Kid (15:35) with the Santa Maria.
4) KENTA, Taiji Ishimori & El Oriental beat Rocky Romero, Antifaz & Histeria (13:55) when Ishimori used the Jorge Special on Antifaz.

08/19: Anniversary Main Event?, Monterrey, Puebla


A poster on El Martinete says Reforma.com (subsciption only) is reporting Lizmark Jr. vs Perro Aguayo Jr. will meet in a mask vs hair match as the main event of the anniversary show. They claim the press confrence, announcing the full lineup, will be on Tuesday. I don’t have any way of confirming this, but it does seem about right.

AAA (SUN) 08/19 Arena Coliseo Monterrey [RFC]
1) Iron Extreme & Virtual X b Dr. Cianuro & Invasor
2) Dranser & Panteria del Ring II b Euforia (Monterrey) & Mercurio
3) Aguila Extrema, Guerrero Blanco, Iron b Jesse, Nygma, Polvo de Estrellas [capitans bull terrier]
4) Chiva Rayada I & Virtual X b May Flowers & Monje Negro II
5) Elegido, Hombre Sin Miedo, Pimpinela b Hator, Picudo, Viper 2007

indy (TUE) 08/21 Arena Coilseo Monterry [rfc]
1) Aguila Azteca vs Mr. Flecha
2) Hijo del Trueno vs Black Nazi
3) The Beast vs Rey Cazador
4) Corazon Adicto vs Guerrero Griego
5) Golden Boy vs Potro Jr.
6) Borrico & Pancho Tequila vs Burrito & Humberto Garza Jr.

CMLL (MON) 08/20 Arena Puebla [
ultrachito @ el martinete
, hugo999 @ box y lucha]
1) Espiritu Maligno, Toro Bill, Toro Bill Jr. b Forajido, King Jaguar, Super Star
2) Maniacop, Negro Navarro, Skandalo b Centella de Oro, Legionario, Zigma
3) Misterioso II, Texano Jr., Virus b La Mascara, Mascara Purpura, Maximo
4) Lady Apache b Hiroka [CMLL WOMEN]
5) Olimpico, Toscano, Ultimo Guerrero b Hijo de Lizmark, Perro Aguayo Jr., Terrible

Lizmark is still booked as a Perro around the country, so mostly he’s turning on them to cost them their matches, like he did here.

In today’s Ovaciones, Atlantis talks about his trip to Japan. He (and Olimpico) going from August 29th to September 2nd for the big mask manned tournament, though they don’t specific it here. When he returns, he’s heading to Oregon and Los Angeles. Atlantis talks about how he has no idea who he’s facing on Tuesday (because they’re so beneath him), but he’s considering beating Villano V for his mask since he’s going to have to face him on Friday.

I’d recommend Olimpico know for sure what he can and can not take thru customs, medical supply wise.

CMLL (SUN) 08/19 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [El Occidental, ix]
3) Leon Blanco b Guerrero Samuari, Leono, Magnum, Rayman, Lobo, Malefico, Mr. Trueno, Okumura, Rey Trueno [cibernetico]
4) La Mascara, Sagrado, Ultimo Dragon b Atlantis, Olimpico, Ultimo Guerrero

AAA (THU) 08/23 Arena Olimpico Laguna de Gomez Palacio [El Siglo de Torreon]

2) Piloto Suicida, Sexy Piscis, Stuka I vs Diamante Negro, Espanto V, Mr. Guerrero
3) La Parka Jr. & Zorro vs El Mesias & Kenzo Suzuki

So Parka’s back on the road.

My San Antonio writes about lucha libre training in Escondido, California.

El Urbano de Chacabuco has pictures of a tribute show to Martin Karadagian (the creator of Titanes en el ring) in Buenos Aires.

Guerreros del Ring Especial #11 has Fishman
Guerreros del Ring #101 has Blue Panther
