04/14: Mexico, AAA in the US

CMLL (FRI) 04/13 Arena Mexico [ova, ocampo]
1) Shockercito & Tzuki b Fire & Mr. Aguilita
2) Hiroka, Mima Shimoda, Princesa Sujei b Dark Angel, Luna Magica, Sahori
3) Dos Caras Jr., Lizmark Jr., Sagrado b Sangre Azteca, Tarzan Boy, Universo 2000
4) Marco Corelone, Rey Bucanero, Shocker DQ Atlantis, Olímpico, Último Guerrero
5) Místico & Negro Casas b el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Mr. Águila [CMLL TAG]

Perro had Mistico pinned in the third fall after a low blow, but no ref was there to count. Mistico rallied back to win and keep the titles. Sixth defense, and as of today, they’ve held these belts for a year. These two had fought earlier in the evening for something airing on another TV show, and Ocampo says Mistico broke Perro’s nose during that bit. This main event drew the best house of the year, imagine that.

Ovaciones says Marco pulled Ultimo’s mask in the semimain, while Ocampo says Ultimo pulled it himself and Marco got blamed.

Sagrado replayed Rayo in the tercera.

Women’s match is three falls, and that seems to be the new way of things. Ocampo notes that Dark Angel’s parents were in the crowd.

Check out Luchalibreusa – it says the Warped Tour (summer concerts – their site is down as I write this, so use wiki instead) will include AAA wrestlers, but gives absolutely no more details besides that. So this could mean anything from matches at every show to something when they run thru Texas. It’s really too unspecific to spend much time speculating, but I think it’s gonna have to be spot freaks, and it’s going to end up having Foreign Legion/Hell Brothers on top (except, how do you have worthwhile guys in the US when you need them in Mexico for spot shows?)

Rosendo “El Acapulco” Genchi, an original AAA referee, has passed away. (Ovaciones)

The Tapatia Awards should be (auto)posted around 7 PM CST today, so check back for them.

2) Depredador & Valentin Mayo b Carlo Roggi & Golden
3) Magnum & Metal Blanco b Infierno & Mr. Trueno
4) Máscara Sagrada & Sagrado b el Hijo del Pierroth & Pierroth
5) Dos Caras Jr., Dr. Wagner Jr., LA Park b Atlantis, Pierroth, Rey Bucanero [ri]

Pierroth worked twice to fill in for Ultimo Guerrero.

CMLL (TUE) 04/10 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [cmll]
1) Estrella de Jalisco b Imposter
2) Metalik b Depredador
3) Malefico b Oro II

6) Averno b Dr. Wagner Jr.
7) Místico b Mephisto [CMLL WELTER]

Mascara Magica fouled Sagrado to steal a win, and they agreed to a hair vs mask match for next week. (Magica’s going down.) Averno also won via foul.

CMLL (WED) 04/11 Arena Queretaro Lineup [Knotty @ el Martiente]
1) Rey Azteca & Sindrome b Aviador & Luminoso
2) Drabek I & Drabk II DQ Fuego Latino & Ozuno

4) Felino & Principe Valiente Jr. b Dr. X & Nitro
5) Marco Corelone & Rayo de Jalisco Jr. DQ Ultimo Guerrero & Universo 2000

Felino and Dr. X filled in for Satanico and Sangre Azteca. In the main, Universo tried to martiente Corelone, Rayo broke it up and tried to martiente Universo, that was broken up too, and Ulitmo fouled Corleone and was caught. Mistico’s in here for the next show.

Ovaciones says next week’s Kid Show will be next Sunday at Arena Mexico, in place of the usual Arena Coliseo show. This is what they did last year.

VIP (SUN) 04/22 Toreo de Cuatro Caminos [ESTO]
1) Coco Rojo, El Dandy, Furia vs Axxel, King Fish, Super Muneco
2) Mano Negra & Solar I vs Black Terry & Negro Navarro
3) Damian 666, Halloween, Mr. Aguila vs Hijo de Anibal, Mascara Sagrada, Ultimo Dragoncito

Arena Mexico previews
* Ovaciones says Negro Casas may be tired because he just returned from Japan – the NJPW tour ended 23 days ago! Was he hanging out in Mexico for three weeks?
* ESTO – main event, undercard

I’m thinking there’s about a 55% chance of a title change in tonight’s main event. Mistico is the one guy they’d put multiple belts on (and if there’s not a picture of him wearing 2 or 3 belts, I’ll be disappionted.) As that number indicates, I’m quite unsure of how this will go down.

ESTO also has an interview with Terrible. His fall back job if lucha didn’t (doesn’t?) work out? Auto mechanic

(Aca-Novenet)Mistico was supposed to hang out with 50 children, winners of a newspaper contest, before a show in Acapulco yesterday night. However, he couldn’t make the agreed upon time in the afternoon, because he was double booked – he was supposed to be on the beach for photos. So Mistico brought the kids to the show and hung out with them there.

(Radio Formula) Arturo Rivera has given up cigarettes (mostly) and lost weight in preparation to participate in the Phoenix Marathon. If it’s this one, he’s still got 8 months to prep. This is all on a challenge by Televisa Deportes (the network, not the wrestler.)

IWRG’s site is down.

CMLL on FSE #35

taped 04/01, aired 04/08

Is Jeque supposed to be good and I’m missing it? He was better this week, but that just got him to okay, and there’s no aspect of his wrestling that seems special – he’s ordinary in most every way.

After going back and forth, I’ve finally decided that Mascara Sagrada is the same size as ever. I think. I’m more certain he’s working hard, surely to get a few more dates around here.

04/12: Neza, Tijuana, Acapulco

CMLL

CMLL (THU) 04/05 Arena Neza [rudosneza @ thegladiatores]

3) Máximo & Mictlán b Emilio Charles Jr. & Misterioso II
4) Alex Koslov, Marco Corelone, Shocker b Eclipse, Tarzan Boy, Universo 2000
5) Ramstein b Chac-Mol [mask]

The King Lives! Long Live The King! Chac-Mol is Arturo Varela from of Neza, 33 with 15 years spent as a wrestler. They did a rudo fan hair vs tecnico fan hair with the segunda, and the tecnico fan lived up to the stip when his team went down.

AAA (MON) 04/16 Gimnasio Municipal Irapuato [El Sol de Irapuato]
1) El Payaso & Motoraton vs Perro Callejero II & Rocoman
2) Alan, Billy Boy, Decnnis vs Bobby Lee Jr., Krimen, Prisonero 13

2) Sangre Azteca vs Maximo [MEX WELTER]

4) Dr. Wagner Jr., Mistico, Rey Bucanero vs Averno, Mephisto, Ultimo Guerrero
5) Hijo del Lizmark vs Mascara Ano 2000 [mask, hair]

Gotta figure Lizmark Jr. won that. He’s not losing his mask and Mascara Ano 2000 exists just to lose his hair at this point.

CMLL (MON) 04/16 Arena Puebla [hugo999]
1) Ares & Murcielago vs King Jaguar & Super Star
2) Espiritu Maligno, Karisma, Toro Bill Jr. vs Centella de Oro, the Tiger, Zigma
3) Dr. X, Skandalo, Toro Bill Sr. vs Astro Boy, Leono, Stuka Jr.
4) Atlantis, Olimpico, Tarzan Boy vs La Mascara, Maximo, Negro Casas
5) Damain 666, Halloween, Hector Garza vs Alex Koslov, Hijo de Lizmark, Rey Bucanero

The Observer says Ricky Banderas is headed into TNA once his contract with WSX ends. There’s also a story about TripleMania being perhaps moved to a new date/time.

There’s plenty of bloody Mistico pictures in the Box Y Lucha thread about his title win. Vampiro appeared at this show, and it sounds like he’s returning to this arena on 05/01.

Box Lucha 2813 has Solitario, LA Park and Dr. Wagner on the cover.

LA Park wants to win the masks of Villano III, Dr. Wagner, and El Hijo del Santo before he retires. Not only does that mean he’s never retiring, he’s going to be heartbroken when he finds out Villano III’s been unmasked for seven years. Park is talking about promoting in his hometown of Monclova.

An article in El Nuevo Diario says Jack Veneno is bringing a Mexican lucha libre show to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic in July. Santo, Mil, and the Wagner brothers are among those listed.

ESTO has a Wagner/Chivas article here.

04/13-04/15 Lucha Times

AAA: Rey de Reyes – Billy/Apache in a hair match again, the Tag Tournament final, and lots of random cameos

FSE: last stop before the mask match.

GDR: Perros vs High Society. If they air the segunda from Coliseo, this could be very neat. (So no chance? No chance.)

AAAMEX: 04/01 taping – Charly/Chessman vs Kenzo/Mesias in the main event, Dark Family vs Air Force and a triangle mixed tag match on the undercard

CMLLMEX: Tag Title match, High Society vs Guerreros, Rayo vs Sangre (and maybe Lizmark will finally turn.)

I’m going to be busy Saturday morning; I’ll try to stick a results thread up (so you can discuss TV there), but the GdR lineup won’t be up till much later.

04/11: Coliseo, Monterrey

CMLL (TUE) 04/10 Arena Coliseo [ova, cmll]
1) Pequeño Violencia & Pierrothito b Celestial & Electrico
2) Super Nova, Trueno, Valiente b Apocalipsis, Hooligan, Ramstein
3) Arkangel de la Muerte, Euforia, Nosferatu b Metro, Satánico, Tony Rivera
4) Eclipse, Ephesto, Shigeo Okumura b Máximo, Texano Jr., Virus
5) Alex Koslov, Heavy Metal, Rey Bucanero DQ Atlantis, Olímpico, Sangre Azteca

Atlantis fouled Alex in the main event. Ovaciones lists “Perrito” as the non-Violencia mini in the opener, but CMLL’s got Pierrothito, who was scheduled to particpate. Same thing with “Europa”/”Euforia” in the tercera.

Nosferatu is listed at 90 KG and 176 cm. FWIW, Soberano Jr. is 95 KG and 182 cm. Don’t have stats on Chamaco Valaguez Jr.

indy (TUE) 04/10 Arena Coliseo Monterrey [rfc]
1) Mini Burro b Tequilita
2) La Furia & Toro Blanco b Arcangel (Monterrey) & Black Nazi
3) Gardenia Azteca & Rosa Salvaje b Borrico & Rudy Reyna
4) Burrito, Sky, Turbina b Guerrero Griego, Potro Jr., Vudu
5) Ejecutor, Hijo de Espanto II, Kriminal, Pancho Tequilla b Corazon Adictor, Enrique Vera, Golden Boy, Rey Apostol
6) Konnan Big b Cepty Boy, Gongora, Torin

amateur @ box y lucha, notable box y lucha poster, went to the Arena Coliseo Guadalajara show, and said the building was full (maybe past capacity) for Mephisto/Mistico. He says it was a pretty good match (and that’s coming from someone not usually a fan of Mistico.)

Mi Morelia has a short article on La Parka Jr.’s crash. He’s not happy with how long it’ll take for him to get back.

Mistico’s still drawing as a spot show attraction. Nearly 1,000 have been sold two weeks in advance for a Mexicali show featuring him. Tickets are usually bought two days in advance, so the promoter sees this as a very good sign, and a chance that they might fill the building (9,000) and set a Baja California attendence record. (La Cronica.)

Dr. Wagner hung out with the Chivas at their practice yesterday. (La Presna) The futbol ones, not the wrestling ones! Wagner’s apparently a friend of Hector Reynoso, and they jokingly made hair/mask challenges.

Noticias Oaxaca has it’s usual story profiling a guy who had big matches against stars and we have no record of this ever happening so I dunno if we’re just missing the records or what. As usual.

random: You know how odd things stick in your head? “Chamaco Ortiz” was apparently stuck in mine. We thought it might be an alternate Artillero name, but I figured it a better guess when looking around the wiki this morning – Chamaco Ortiz is Hombre Bala/Monsther’s original name. I don’t think Monsther is working unmasked matches at Arena Juba de Reynosa and elsewhere, but I do remember his daughter India Sioux mentioning in an interview that she had a brother who was (about to start) wrestling – could he be Chamaco Ortiz? Seems to fit.

I’m sure someone mentioned this months ago in a magazine and I’m eight months slow on it. (Or I figured out and forget.) Really need to start getting magazines, I think.

New CMLL Champion

El Occidental

Mistico won the CMLL World Welterweight Championship, defeating Mephisto on Tuesday in Arena Coliseo Guadalajara. Mistico is the 22nd champion. Mephisto had held the belt since Feburary 24, 2004.

El Occidental has the story, and a bloody victorious Mistico appears on today’s cover.

Mistico winning this belt substantially increases the chances he’ll lose the tag team titles on Friday. I do not believe he’ll have two belts for long, and I think it’s more of a matter of deciding if it makes sense for Perro and Aguila to have two belts (and probably do another title change with the tags or the trios), or if Negro/Mistico retain on Friday and drop them soon to someone else. Mistico did hold both the NWA Middleweight and the CMLL Tag Team titles for a few months last year, but CMLL has seems to avoid doing that sort of thing.

Mistico is a three belt champion at the moment – he also still the IWRG Super Welterweight Champion, though that belt is not known to been defended since just after it was created.

The only other result listed from the show is Dr. Wagner over Averno, which is odd because they weren’t originally on the card.

Update: CMLL mentions this in it’s news section.

It occurs to me that I have no idea if Arena Coliseo Guadalajara is still/back on the air, and which day they’re taping. Anyone know?

04/10: Parka Jr., IWRG, Monterrey, Puebla,

cmll

La Parka Jr. will be out an extended period of time due to injury. He’s got an interview today in La Presna, where he explains he was driving to Zamora but a tire blew out and things got worse from there. Parka Jr. thought he had a spine injury at first, but it turned out to be just a shoulder. The article, via translation, says his right shoulder is “completely destroyed”, but then also says he’s going to start rehabbing it soon, so I’m not sure the extent of it. He’ll be out a few weeks at least, and should be considered off any upcoming cards.

IWRG (SUN) 04/08 Arena Naucalpan
1) Puma King b Golem
2) Antaris, Cyborg, Turbo b Trauma I, Trauma II, Vampiro Met�lico

Title match went to a fourth fall after the third was a double DQ. Yamato got busted open in his match, but rallied back to win, and the description says that sets up a hair match between these two teams, but it’s not in the cards for this week.

Hey, AAA people back in Coliseo Monterrey.

CMLL (MON) 04/09 Arena Puebla [hugo999 @ box y lucha]

4) La M�scara, M�stico, Negro Casas b Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
5) Shocker b Universo 2000

Loco Max hurt his ribs on a dive. Mistico pinned Averno clean with La Mistica; the rudo fans here were chanting “SANTO” at him as a taunt. I don’t know how that actually works. Shocker beat Universo with a foul.

El Heraldo de Chiapas has an interview with Tiffany. Her goal for the year is to take Fabi and Estrellita’s hair.

On a radio show, Mascara Ano 2000 said his ‘kids’ would be debuting in CMLL in late May.

Another article about the lucha libre expo here.

The Monclova is threatening to drop the hammer on local luchadores, according to Zocalo. Out of the 45 local wrestlers, only 1 has gotten licensed. They’ve got 11 days left till the deadline, OR ELSE. I don’t recall anything actually happening when the Torreon ByL commission threatened the same.
