Obviously, CMLL and IWRG worked on the same card here, occasionally on Coliseo Coacalco shows and they’ve been doing the same lately in Arena Aficion (though not this week.) I’m sure it’s happening on smaller shows too; everywhere but Arena Naucalpan.
AAA (SUN) 02/28 Arena Coliseo Monterrey [RFC]

6) Electroshock, Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr., Silver King b Black Warrior, El Mesías, La Parka Jr.
I usually don’t post these on the blog portion, because there’s nothing to say beside the results. But this was the first AAA show back here, with Warrior and Dr. Wagner Jr. appearing. Mari Apache filled in for Goddess. Opener was said to be very good.
CMLL (MON) 03/01 Arena Puebla [R de Rudo]
1) Black Tiger, Blue Center, Milenium b Akron, Karisma, Siki Ozama Jr.
2) Dalis la Caribeña, Estrella Mágica, Lady Apache b Princesa Blanca, Seuxis, Yeska
3) Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Violencia, Pierrothito b Asturiano, Bam Bam, Mr. Rafaga
4) Blue Panther, Toscano, Volador Jr. b Naito, Shigeo Okumura, Taichi
5) Strong Man DQ Último Guerrero
Strong Man won the first with a press slam. Ultimo took the second with the armbar, then fouled Strong Man and faked his own foul in the third. Referee polled the crowd (who were actually rooting for the rudo) and awarded the match to Strong Man. UG offered a title match.
Volador pinned Taichi to win the semimain.
Mascarita Dorada (on the flight home) and Shockercito (?) were both MIA from the minis match, which changed things around a bit for the locals. Pierrothito was strechered out after an Asturiano dive, and Violenca snuck in a foul on Bam Bam for the win.
Over the weekend, Charly Manson lost the Mexican Heavyweight title to local wrestler Maniaco in Coliseo Molina de Uruapan. As you may remember, Charly Manson lost the heavyweight title to X-Fly last weekend, but it appears he just held onto the physical belt and is selling title changes at local shows. That doesn’t work out well in 2010 – the box y lucha foro is going crazy over this, and Cesar has a takedown as well – though I wonder if this is actually the first time Charly did it, or just the first time the reset of the world heard on it.
It does explain why Charly had no problem losing the belt to X-Fly – he was keeping the belt anyway. Though…the commission just went thru a thing where they were threatening a suspension if the former champion didn’t hand over the belt to the current champion, which appears to have happened here as well. Except that was Mistico & Volador and planned (maybe, somewhat?) and this situation is more a general unplanned embarrassment. It’d be neat if Fantamsa took the belt away, but I doubt it and I expect Charly to go on Dos de Tres to halfheartedly explain it all away.
Ray Mendoza Jr. wants him and/or his brothers to face Brazo de Plata, Blue Panther, or Ultimo Guerrero for their hair or mask at Dos Leyendas. I’m thinking no, but I’ll be completely surprised if there’s not a Villanos trios match on the show.
The Gladiatores have pictures of Super Astro’s new Tijuana sandwich shop, and have interviews with Hijo del Diablo and Tinieblas Jr.
Beside the links above, Black Terry Jr. also has the Black Jaguar vs Latin Brother mask match, and Latin Brother unmasked.
Spin Fly Kick writes about the Sunday Todos x el Todos show in Brussels.
Perros del Mal posted their ad for next week’s episode.
Over 60% of Torreon wrestlers have gotten their license for the year, which seems higher than usual.
LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

I thought Mascara Sagrada Jr. was the new Alebrije – or was it Mascara Sagrada AAA?

Tickets are 80, 30 for kids. I don’t believe they have enough seats in this building to cover just talent costs for this show. Maybe they’ve got some sweet sponsorship deals or something.
