CMLL CAN52 GdR #77

taped 05/04 and 05/06, aired 05/12

This was a lame weekend, it turned out. The opener was just an angle to explain Virus turn – which happened 11 days ago! We kinda got the idea, and it’s not like it’s much of a surprise when he’s teaming with the opposition two days later. We could’ve skipped thru.

Main event was a pinch above Going Thru The Motions. I prefer to call Doing Just Enough.

05/20 Congress Theater show

I keep forgetting about this show, but since it’s only 3 days away, I think I should post it already.

FMLL (SUN) 05/20 Congress Theatre Lineup
4) Hijo de Rey Misterio, Rayo Lazer vs Lucifer, Aguila del America
5) Rayo de Jalisco Jr., Mascara Sagrada vs Angel Blanco Jr., Satanico

There’s a thread on the show at CPW.

$25 is crazy for this lineup – who’s supposed to be the draw here? $35 for ringside – that’s 377 pesos (more than they were charging for the anniversary show!) – has no chance. I like Satanico, I’ve seen Satanico, I’m seeing Satanico on TV every weekend once or twice it seems, I’m not paying $25 to see him when he’s the top guy I care about on the card.

I’m going to be in the city anyway at the Cubs/Sox game and could make it if this was something super. Rayo and Sagrada are quite the opposite.

05/15: Mistico still not wrestling, Monterrey

El Sol del Baijo

CMLL (TUE) 05/15 Palenque de la Feria de Celaya [El Sol del Baijo]
1) Bam Bam & Ultimo Dragonicto b Mini Damian 666 & Mini Halloween
2) Dark Angel & Lady Apache b Amapola & Princesa Sujei
3) Blue Demon Jr., La Mascara, Volador Jr. b Damian 666, Halloween, Mr. Aguila

Mistico did NOT wrestle, but did appear to explain his injury and sign autographs for a half hour. Looks like he’s out of the sling, at least for this picture.

indy (TUE) 05/15 Arena Coliseo Monterrey [RFC]
1) Burrico & Mini Tequila b Burrito & Mini Burrito
2) Hollywood & Toro Blanco b Black Sabath & Corazon Adicto
3) Gitano del Norte, Mr. Vega, Rey Hechicero b Bengali, Black Soul, Cats
4) Chuy Oviedo, Ejecutor, Pancho Tequila b Angel del Amor, Golden Boy, La Kalaka
5) 5X, Apostol, Tigre Universitario b Anibal el Vampiro, Memo Valles, Silver Star
6) Sky L Konnan Big, Casanova, Vudu [hair]

Konnan Big beat Sky, who wasn’t listed in the original match lineup.

Universion/Galavision’s press release about it’s next season includes a paragraph on lucha libre

“Lucha Libre” and “Lucha de Vuelta” Some of the best known wrestlers in the AAA and CMLL confederations bring their trademarked acrobatic moves and colorful costumed antics into the ring every weekend on Galavisión. (Saturday, 2:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m., and Sunday, 1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m. ET/PT)

I wouldn’t read anything into the CMLL mention. Probably the same blurb they use every year. “Confederations”? I guess if few people are under contract, that’s actually correct.

Wrestlers in Coahuila are complaining about the lack of insurance and movement on that issue. No quotes from the promoters or the commissioners or any sign of contacting them, despite both being ripped here.

Sentidog has a review of a move called Super Amigos, a documentary on social conscious lucha libre wrestlers as super heroes. Super Barrio, Super Animal, Fray Tormenta, Ecologista Universal, and Super Gay are profiled.

No Coliseo results. No IWRG website.

CMLL FSE #40

Link is right now. I am a moron.

taped 05/05, aired 05/13

Was this the Coliseo show with the really low attendance? This felt like a show with low attendance, and everyone taking it down a gear. It wasn’t mailing it in, but it wasn’t full speed otherwise.

Infernales came off in ring better in their first match, though they’re still being booked as dominant here. Nosferatu definitely looked more Chamaco Valaguez like here.

05/18-20 Lucha Times

AAAUS: Not quite sure what’s going on here.

– Saturday’s afternoon airing and the east coast Sunday airing is shown as going only 1:30
– the overnight airing and the west coast Sunday airing is shown as going only 3:00

I presume the full scheduled show airs somewhere, but we may lose a week or get bumped back.

CAN52: Probably the AMex opener and Coliseo Main event. Sure getting a lot of the New New New New Infernales on the B-Shows.

FSE: Women’s trios, and a random group for the main event.

AAAMEX: The just compelted 05/12 taping.

CMLLMEX: Tiny Tecnicos vs Loco/Mexico/Nitro, Leyenda de Plata, Wagner/Atlantis.

Unless something unexpected happens, the Minoru Suzuki/Takayama trios match will not air anywhere. It’s in the dead spot.

05/20 AAA TV Taping Lineup (Morelia, Michoacan)

Update: The Mexipowers/Sect match is now for the Atomicos titles, as anticipated. Also, Aero Star continues filling it for the MIA Rey Cometa.

Previous: 04/27, 05/06 (lineup), 05/12 (lineup)

Odd that AAA posted the TV taping for two weeks from now, and not the results from last night yet. Eh.

AAA TV (SUN) 05/20 Plaza de Toros Palacio del Arte de Morelia, Michoacan
1) Gallego, Mr. Condor, Toxico vs Payaso Negro I, Payaso Negro II, Payaso Negro III
2) Mascarita Divina & Mascarita Sagrada vs Mini Abismo Negro & Mini Histeria
3) Pegasso, Aero Star, Super Fly vs Alan, Decnnis, Gran Apache
4) Cuervo, Espiritu, Ozz, Scoria vs Crazy Boy, Joe Lider, Juventued Guerrera, Psicosis [MEX ATOMICOS]
5) Intocable, Laredo Kid, Zorro vs Abismo Negro, Kenzo Suzuki, X-Pac
6) Cibernetico vs El Mesias

Air Date
Mex: 05/27
US: 06/16

Chessman (named spelled wrong on AAA’s site) and Konnan are seconds for the main event. I presume this match means Chessman loses the match the week before. This show is subtitled Gran Tracion. Judging by last year, this means NO ONE TURNS. I dunno.

Interesting to see Juvi still with the Mexican Powers here. That’s about all I got.

Next Tapings
– 05/26 Minatitlan, Veracruz
– 05/30 San Luis Potosi

05/16: Coliseo (last weeks), Monterrey

No word on last night’s Coliseo – Ovaciones has the AAA tapings results we’ve already covered – or word if/how Mistico wrestled last night. We do have some catchup…

4) Cobarde & Satanico vs ? & Blue Panther
5) Fabian el Gitano, Groon XXX, Marco Corelone vs Electroshock, Sangre Azteca, Texano Jr.

That is an incredible tecnico trio.

(the Californian) This year’s Salinas Valley Fair will include lucha libre matches on Friday. Looks like APW, according to the website.

FSE put a press release trumping it’s ratings. Lucha libre gets a very small mention.

IWRG’s site is still down.

05/30 AAA TV Taping Lineup (San Luis Potosi)

Previous: 05/12, 05/20 (lineup), 05/26 (unannounced)

AAA TV (WED) 05/30 Auditorio Miguel Barragan [el Sol de San Luis Potosi]
1) Aero Star, Laredo Kid, Pegasso vs Miedo, Payaso, Terror
2) Billy Boy, Octagoncito, Pimpinela Escarlata, Sexy Star vs Apache, Fabi Apache, Mini Chessman, Polvo de Estrellas
3) Crazy Boy, Joe Lider, Juventud Guerrera, Psicosis II vs Alan, Decnnis, Extreme Tiger, Fuerza Guerrera
4) Alebrije, Elegido, Super Porky vs Abismo Negro, Head Hunter I, Kenzo Suzuki
5) Charly Manson, Chessman, Cibernetico, Zorro vs Cuervo, Escoria, Mesias, Ozz

Air Date
Mex: 06/10
US: 06/30

This is good timing, need a new AAA thread to provoke another long argument. You know how you can tell you have too many people on your roster? Everything’s an Atomicos.

Extreme Tiger is the worst possible Super Calo. They actually don’t list Psicosis II on the tecnico team, but I’m assuming that’s not a handicap match.

Doesn’t seem like anything’s going on here, but maybe the taping in between will make this one more interesting.

Next Tapings
– unknown

05/15: Mistico to return tonight?, La Parka Jr. to return tommorow?, Puebla, Magazines

Ovaciones reports Mistico will wrestle tonight in Palenque de la Feria de Celaya, Guanajuato. This is far ahead of the most optimistic return, which means all that praying paid off for Mistico or he decided “screw it” and is going to be wrestling in pain for quite some time.

The lineup is something like

CMLL (TUE) 05/15 Palenque de la Feria de Celaya
1) ? & Ultimo Dragonicto vs Mini Damian 666 & Mini Halloween
2) Dark Angel & Lady Apache vs Amapola & Princesa Sujei
3) La Mascara, Mistico, Volador Jr. vs Damian, Halloween, Mr. Aguila

CMLL

According to an interview with the promoter in El Sol del Bajio, La Parka Jr. will defintely return for his show tomorrow in Ceyela. I guess no one wants to miss a date in that town?

A post on Box Y Lucha says Pimpinela will be out 2-3 weeks due to injury.

PYVC (SUN) 05/13 Poliforum Zamna de Merida [Yukacoolgráfico @ elmartinete]
1) Buitre Lee & Dr. Siniestro b Panther Boy & Rey Persa
2) Espartano, Lizmark Sr., Proverbio b Blade, Cachorro, Chupacabras
3) Black Soul b Titanick [OLX HARDCORE]
4) Dr. X, Eclipse, Mictlan b Cachorro Jr., Pierroth, Pierroth Jr.
5) Damián 666, Halloween, Universo 2000 b Marco Corelone, Super Parka, Villano III

This was supposed to have a Hijo del Solitario vs Villano III super libre bout, but Solitario hurt (arm? shoulder? something where he needed to use a sling!) and Villano III replaced Shocker, who appears to have gone AWOL. They did offer refunds for those who wanted, but judging from the pictures, they didn’t draw that much to start with.

CMLL (MON) 05/14 Arena Puebla [hugo999 @ box y lucha]
1) King Jaguar & Super Star b La Mafia & Mr. Rafaga
2) Fuerza Chicana, Toro Bill, Toro Bill Jr. DQ Forajido, SWAT, the Tiger
3) Loco Max, Misterioso II, Virus b Centella de Oro, Leono, Tigre Rojo
4) Damian 666, Halloween, Mr. Aguila b Ares, Fureza Chicana, Sangre Azteca
5) Averno, Mephisto, Texano Jr. b La Mascara, Rey Bucanero, Volador Jr.
6) Marco Corelone, Negro Casas, Ultimo Dragon b Atlantis, Jushin Liger, Ultimo Guerrero

4th match was an unannounced random bonus match. I think Marco pinned Guerrero, but whatever happened, it sets up a singles match for next week.

Ovaciones says El Hijo del Diablo will replace Lizmark Jr. in Coliseo tonight. Which means Diablo, who hasn’t worked CMLL in as long as I can recall, is lined up to work as a tecnico. Strange. I’m thinking that was a typo.

A blog entry on Milenio complains about the state of lucha libre. Hector Garza is quoted as complaining that wrestlers don’t need to know how to fight and just need a pretty face, a good body and know how to dance. Sure sounds like he’s talking about himself, based on his recent work.

Magazines:
Luchas 2000 #368 is all highlights from their show.
Guerreros del Ring #87 has Mascara Sagrada on the cover
El Halcon Net #90 has interviews with Santo, Texano Jr., and Brillante, and the first part of a story about Gimnasio Ham Lee. Brillante is 17!

Canek chats on Box Y Lucha tomorrow.

IWRG’s site is still down. No Sunday or Tuesday Coliseo results.

Can someone explain the Dr. Morales/Brazos thing?
