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…


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)

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

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.


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.

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.


06/29-07/01 Lucha Times

AAAUS: The difference between this week’s show and the others lately is…uh….hmmmm – Fuerza Aerea and Team Apache are in different matches? Not that’ll hold true. Zorro teams up with the Hell Brothers in the main event.

CAN52: I have no idea, but I thought it’d be funny if we got FdT AND the MINI FdT. So that’s the logic I used. Probably not happening, but it really should.

FSE: So this gets what’s left over, but that’s not the issue. FSE has the Copa America and the U20 Copa Mundial, so lucha is going to have to dance between the raindrops to get on. Judging from the listings, this is what’s going on:

Monday at 3:30 EST – rerun of the 06/10 show
Saturday at 7:00 PM – 6 day late broadcast of the show we usually get (and which Chui and others in Mexico would’ve seen nearly a week before.)

Why is FSE repeating a random episode instead of showing a new one? I don’t know. At this point, next week’s schedule doesn’t appear to have a new airing scheduled, but it does have a rerun show and that 12 Great Lucha Libre Matches clip show which has aired in Mexico.

FS-Latin America, which is the feed airing in Mexico, is airing a lucha libre rerun just about daily of late. I don’t know why, but I’m sure FSE has the dead time to do the same.

CMLLMEX: At least some of the GA and the main event. I know I keep wondering if Blue Panther is going to be switched with Mistico at the last second. But then I also wonder about doing a singles main event reliant on Lizmark Jr. showing up. I think he still leads in career no-shows over Shocker.

A Copa America is scheduled right before on Channel 9. I foresee a calamity and a joined in progress broadcast.

I ought to watch some of that Copa America.

Did anyone ever confirm if there was a fourth match (besides the top 3) on CMLLMEX last week? I’m guessing they just aired three matches, because that seems to be the easy thing to do.

AAAMEX: 06/17 taping, Latin/Parka/Zorro vs Kenzo/Mesias/Ozz
