2) Aquiles & El Galeno b El Faraon & Wama

1) Brazo de Platino & Texano Jr. b Rocky Santana & Solar I
2) Villano III & Villano IV b Negro Navarro & Rambo
3) Villano III & Villano IV b Brazo de Platino & Texano Jr.
4) Maximo & Sagrado DQ Mascara Ano 2000 & Universo 2000
5) Dos Caras Jr., Marco Corelone, Rey Bucanero b Atlantis, Olimpico, Ultimo Guerrero

This is the Signo tribute show, and pretty well shuffled from what was originally announced. There were matches before these, but no results and they didn’t match original listings. Later in the thread, someone mentions India Sioux appeared but didn’t wrestle due to a (broken?) nose operation.

CMLL (SUN) 07/01 Arena Coliseo [ova]
1) Astro Boy & Trueno b Carrona & Zayco
2) Euforia, Nosferatu, Satanico b Felino, La Mascara, Valiente
3) Bam Bam, Shockercito, Fantasy b Mr. Aguilita, Pequeno Damian, Pequeno Halloween
4) Alex Koslov, Heavy Metal, Volador Jr. b Atlantis, Olimpico, Sangre Azteca
5) Dos Caras Jr., Marco Corelone, Rey Bucanero b Toscano, Ultimo Guerrero, Universo 2000

Dos pinned Universo clean in the main event, which does set up a title match next week. I’m far less believing of a title change than Bihari. I can’t believe Universo will actually lose this title til five minutes after it happens. (I can’t believe Universo still has the phyiscal belt either, so maybe I’m just a skeptic. Or maybe there will be panicked cleaning at the ranch this week.)

Fantasy replaced Shockercito in the minis match, which was bumped up to tercera.

Tracking the minis…
06/24 SUN Coliseo: 2) Mr. Aguilita, Peque�o Damian 666, Peque�o Halloween b Bam Bam, Peque�o Ol�mpico, �ltimo Dragoncito
07/01 SUN Coliseo: 3) Bam Bam, Shockercito, Fantasy b Mr. Aguilita, Peque�o Damian 666, Pequeno Halloween
07/08 SUN Coliseo: 2) Ultimo Dragoncito, Pequeno Olimpico, Bam Bam vs Pequeno Halloween, Pequeno Damian 666, Mr. Aguilita

Bam Bam is the only constant on the tecnico side, though Olimpico and Dragoncito are showing up twice.

About five months late, CMLL tickets are on TicketMaster. (Assist to Wagner_Driver @ box y lucha.) Only for this Friday’s show. It looks like they’re not offering all the seats – the cheapest seats don’t appear to be listed.

AAA’s upcoming cards list Abismo Negro on a 07/28 show. Typo?

Zocalo.com.mx has a really good interview with Nicho, about his life in wrestling. He talks about WWE a bit, but also about the start of his career – Pena gave him the Psicosis name, but the gear actually came from a friend who didn’t get picked up by AAA and so couldn’t use it, and it just happened to work out beautifully.

Both Box Y Lucha 2825 and Super Luchas 219 have Chris Benoit on the cover. ByL teases Big Show in Mexico, which I would presume to be the TripleMania rumor.

Sicodelico Jr. moved onto the second round in the NWA World Heavyweight Championship tournament, beating Roughneck Ryan. He moves onto the quarterfinals to face Claudio Castignoli. Logically enough, that match will take place at a CHIKARA show on 07/21 in Wallingford, CT.

Before that match, Sicodelico Jr. will team with Incognito in a triangle match for the NWA World Tag Team Titles. The other two teams are Billy Kidman & X-Pac and Joey Ryan & Karl Anderson (who would seem to be the safe bet.)

Noticas-Oax.com.mx writes about lucha libre stars making the jump to other TV work (mentioning Mistico, Latin, Demon and Intocable.)

SLP indy wrestler El Divino suffered a bad leg fracture, and will be out around six months. BTW, here’s your daily SLP AAA article, this time about Gronda.

Another El Sol de Tampico article about the Atlantis vs Wagner vs Park show there tomorrow.

Auburn Journal talks to Shane Hanson, who claims to have been wrestling as El Gran Fangoria for 15 years. (Thanks to mikeinformer)

CMLL FSE #45

aired 06/17, taped 06/10

By far, the weirdest part of the Father’s Day Unspectacular is how 0.0000000000% effort was used to build up Mistico/Negro vs Averno/Mephisto. No teases of this match, no matchups between these teams. They just had Mistico mention it passing a couple times during this show, and were (overly) confident that would be sufficient. As I saw watching the next week’s taping, that didn’t quite work.

Misterioso took Mr. Aguila’s spot in the main event – soon enough that Mr. Aguila wasn’t mentioned anywhere on this program (not always the case with these subs) but with the match being laid out the same as if Mistierioso was the guys who faced Mistico in the Leyenda de Plata final and they were just finishing off a feud. Misterioso got the pin in the first fall, took La Mistica in the final fall. It was more than Misterioso usually gets.

Otherwise, what we’ve got here is two matches for the sake of being matches.

07/01: notes, Accion

No FSE show today, as previously noted. Ovaciones was Sunday’s card.

Box Y Lucha has Sunday’s Arena Coliseo’s lineup…

ALEX KOSLOV, VOLADOR Y MARCO CORLEONE VS. ÚLTIMO GUERRERO, SANGRE AZTECA Y MÁSCARA 2000
SAGRADO, LEONO Y TONY RIVERA VS. ECLIPSE, MISTERIOSO Y OKUMURA
ÚLTIMO DRAGONCITO, PEQUEÑO OLÍMPICO Y BAM BAM VS. PEQUEÑO HALLOWEEN, PEQUEÑO DAMIÁN 666 Y MR. AGUILITA
RAYO TAPATÍO I Y RAYO TAPATÍO II VS. MESSALA Y CALÍGULA
LÁTIGO Y MALIGNO VS. MR. CREÍBLE Y SANSON

The Mr. Creible match is either one of the trainee dark matches which we never actually hear about, or just four random names as place filler so it looks like five matches. CMLL will announce Dos Jr. vs Universo for the CMLL Heavy title on Monday, I figure.

CMLL: Blue Panther vs Lizmark Jr. We star off with this horrible Lizmakr Jr. legdrop, and it gets only okay from there. Lizmark ripped, but didn’t yank off Panther’s mask during the match. Panther going for revenge ripping started the run ins. It’s too bad Blue Panther has no friends to save him, because he’s beat all the way to the back.

AAA: La Parka Jr., Latin Lover, Zorro vs Mesias, Kenzo, Ozz – all the tecnicos getting beat until Cibernetico walks out, does nothing, and that starts the comeback. Zorro gets in his move on Ozz, Mesias spears Zorro, Cibernetico distracts Mesias, Latin superkicks Mesias and puts him in a casita for the win.

07/15 AAA TV Lineup (TripleMania)

Previous: 06/17, 07/01 (lineup only), 07/06 (lineup only)

This what I think we have. Match order may be a bit screwy.

AAA TV (SUN) 07/15 Toreo de Cuatro Caminos [Box Y Lucha]
1) Alfa, Cassandro, Fabi Apache, Mini Abismo Negro vs Cinthia Moreno, Octagoncito, Oriental, Pimpinela Escarlata
2) Cuervo & Ozz vs Crazy Boy & Joe Lider [AAA TAG]
3) Juventud Guerrera vs Fuerza Guerrera [street]
4) El Apache & Super Fly vs Laredo Kid & Super Calo [losers advance, pi]
5) Super Calo or Gran Apache vs Laredo Kid or Super Fly [mask, hair]
6) Alebrije, Elegido, Super Porky vs Alan Stone, Scorpio Jr., Zumbido
7) ?, La Parka Jr., Latin Lover, Zorro vs ?, Head Hunter I, Ron Killings, Sabu
8) Charly Manson, Chessman, Cibernetico vs Kenzo Suzuki, Mesias, X-Pac [cage, hair]

Air Date
Mex: 07/22
US: 08/11

Lots of people getting on the card as seconds
2) Scoria and Extreme Tiger in the tag title match
3) Octagon and Sangre Chicana in the street fight
4) Sexi Star (w/Laredo’s team) and Fabi Apache in the parajes incredible match, which would sure seem to be a Laredo over Calo
8) Alicia with X-Pac, as usual.

But no Lita? Huh.
Announced Future Tapings

06/30: Mexico, Coliseo, GdR

ESTO/Purpura’s new gear

CMLL (FRI) 06/29 Arena Mexico EST, Galeon del Mal @ box y lucha, ova]
1) Fabián el Gitano & Metálico b Apocalipsis & Hooligan
2) Dark Angel, Diana La Cazdora, Luna Magica b Amapola, Hiroka, Mima Shimoda
3) Dr. Wagner Jr. & Mascara Purpura b Negro Casas & Stuka Jr. [gran alternativa, qf]
4) La Sombra & Mistico b Heavy Metal & Super Nova [gran alternativa, qf]
5) Dos Caras Jr. & Valiente b Flash & Marco Corelone [gran alternativa, qf]
6) Euforia & Ultimo Guerrero b Super Comando & Villano V [gran alternativa, qf]
7) La Sombra & Mistico b Dr. Wagner Jr. & Mascara Purpura [gran alternativa, sf]
8) Euforia & Ultimo Guerrero b Dos Caras Jr. & Valiente [gran alternativa, sf]
9) La Sombra & Mistico b Euforia & Ultimo Guerrero [gran alternativa, final]
10) Blue Panther DQ Lizmark Jr.

Blue Panther won the first fall clean. The second ended with Garza, Terrible, and Villano V running in, and Lizmark yanking off Panther’s mask again. Panther had to be helped out.

After their semifinal match, Wagner teased a rudo turn and challenged Mistico’s team to a rematch. I would guess this is just random grandstanding.

FWIW, Ultimo Guerrero gave Super Comando the Guerrero Special in their first round match, which meant Euforia was the one to pin Villano V

Metalico hurt his knee in the opener, despite the win.

CMLL (TUE) 07/03 Arena Coliseo
1) Molotov & Trueno vs Messala & Zayco
2) Bam Bam, Bracito de Oro, Celestial vs Mini Halloween, Mini Mr. Aguila, Pequeno Damian
3) Lady Apache, Luna Magica, Marcela vs La Nazi, La Seductora, Rosa Negra
4) Eclipse, Misterioso II, Pierroth vs Felino, Heavy Metal, Leono
5) Dos Caras Jr., Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero vs Damian 666, Mr. Aguila, Terrible

CMLL (FRI) 07/06 Arena Mexico
1) Astro Boy & Sombra de Plata vs Apocalipsis & Ramstein
2) Flash, Mictlan, Super Nova vs Nitro, Nosferatu, Virus
3) Alex Koslov, Felino, Heavy Metal vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
4) Terrible, Villano III, Villano V vs Blue Panther, Dr. Wagner Jr., Sagrado
5) Mistico, Negro Casas, Sombra vs Atlantis, Euforia, Ultimo Guerrero

Probably should’ve seen this one coming – the guy they’re hoping to be their next Mistico is already starting a feud with the guy they’ve positioned as their next Averno.

AAA updated their website with the full cards for 07/01 and 07/06, but no TV tapings past that.

CMLL GdR #83 has
06/22 Mexico: Dark Angel, Lady Apache, Marcela b Hiroka, Mima Shimoda, Princesa Sujei
06/24 Coliseo: Damián 666, Halloween, Mr. Águila b Heavy Metal, Máximo, Sombra
Outside the ring with Texano Jr.

Next Saturday’s FSE lucha libre show is listed as “Dos Caras Jr. vs Universo 2000″, so that should be the episode which has already in Mexico. Beyond that, I don’t know.

No Sunday lineup yet.

Mistico & Sombra win Gran Alternativa

They beat Euforia and Ultimo in the final, according to Mistyk on el Martiente.

(yawn)

Black Warrior has been released from CMLL

This news is originally from Mexician newspaper Diaro Record. It’s been reposted by here (WAGNER_DRIVER @ box y lucha), and also by KrisZ. The newspaper does not have a website.

Box Y Lucha foreshadowed in this week’s magazine, so point for them.

Six no shows are cited – checking my notes, that should be…

06/10 Monclova
06/12 Coliseo DF
06/16 Neza
06/17 Coacalco
06/18 Puebla
06/19 Coliseo DF
06/24 Guadalajara

Which is not 6, but close enough. They did have new lineups with Warrior off the GDL card. It’s really not the number, but the complete disappearing act.

I have no idea if this is a jump to AAA (a confirmed TripleMania card might clarify), or if there’s personal issues going on here. I’m guessing CMLL has not heard from Black Warrior, or has just very much not liked what they’ve heard.

Warrior is a much better position to jump groups since losing his mask. He’d lose his name, but he’d be able to keep his look.

06/29: Mexico preview

ESTO/Valiente not being in this means he’s losing

CMLL (FRI) 06/29 Arena Mexico
1) Fabian el Gitano & Metalico vs Apocalipsis & Hooligan
2) Dark Angel, Diana La Cazadora, Luna Magica vs Amapola, Hiroka, Mima Shimoda
3) Negro Casas & Stuka Jr. vs Dos Caras Jr. & Valiente and Dr. Wagner Jr. & Mascara Purpura and La Sombra & Mistico and Super Comando & Villano V and Flash & Marco Corelone and Euforia & Ultimo Guerrero and Heavy Metal & Super Nova [gran alternativa]
m) Lizmark Jr. vs Blue Panther

Both NotiMex and ESTO run previews based off yesterday’s Heavy Metal press conference. ESTO also has words with the GA particpants and pretends to be interested in the main event. They bring up Blue Panther’s big feud with Love Machine, and this is so not Blue Panther’s big feud with Love Machine. It’s a match.

The WWE Mexico press conference went on without Rey (or anyone from the crew). They hope to do another press conference before the start of the tour, when people might be available.

La Opinion Digital talks to Psicosis II, before he goes off on the Warped Tour. He mentions his father was also a wrestler, which I haven’t heard before.

Isela, one of the CMLL valtes, finished 8th in Miss Bikini of the Universe. She had previous won Miss Bikini Latina.

CMLL (MON) 07/02 Arena Puebla [hugo999]
1) Ares & Toro Bill Jr. vs Mr. Rafaga & Siki Osama Jr.
2) Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Espiritu Maligno vs Batman, Centella de Oro, the Tiger
3) Felino, Flash, Valiente vs Euforia, Loco Max, Nosferatu
4) Eclipse, Misterioso Ii, Universo 2000 vs Alex Koslov, La Mascara, Marco Corelone
5) Damian 666, Lizmark Jr., Mr. Aguila vs Blue Panther, Dos Caras Jr., Rey Bucanero

2) Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno b Azazel & Mach 1
3) Ephesto, Infierno, Malefico b Hijo del Faraon, Magnum, Metálico

Metalico replaced Shocker. Lizmark replaced Warrior, and fouled Sagrado for the win.

Cards for this week. As you can see, Jeque appears to be staying on.

CMLL (SUN) 07/01/2007 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Casanova vs Fraile de la Muerte
2) Azazel & Mach-1 vs Depredador & Guero Loco

06/28: notes

Heavy Metal announced a Heavy Metal lucha libre show, which will feature Heavy Metal and also heavy metal. It’ll be two days of shows, August 17th and August 18th. Wrestlers scheduled to appear include Perro Aguayo Jr., Mr. Aguila, Halloween, Damian, Felino, Negro Casas, and perhaps Mistico. Bands scheduled to appear include Blephegor (Austria), Enthroned (Belgium), Acheron (US), Inquisition (Colombia), Dismember and Grave (Sweeden), Sinster (Holland), Incantation (US).

Metal also talked about the Gran Alterniva at the press conference. He likes his chances with Super Nova, though can’t guarantee a win with the likes of UG and Negro invovled. Notimex also has an article talking with many of the young guys. Flash, Valiente and Super Comando are not quote which may mean everything, or may mean nothing at all. (Probably nothing at all.)

Guerreros del Ring #93 has Lizmark Jr. on the cover.
