AAA on Televisa #968 (12/11/2010)

Domo de la Feria Leon, 11/22/2010 – here’s where I tried to do shorter recaps. Never lasts.

moonsault

Jennifer Blake, Kayuga, Oyuki vs Cinthia Moreno, Fabi Apache, Mari Apache – Kayuga & Oyuki were a lot of fun while they were here. It seems like they went home during the holidays and who knows if they’ll come back (which would be troubling since they had the Apaches belts and all) but they pretty easily had the best women’s matches while they were here.

Octagoncito vs Mini Chessman, Mascarita Divina, Mini Psicosis, Mini Charly Manson, Mini Histeria for the AAA World Minis Championship – like I say in the recap, this just felt like someone was bored with doing minis trios and tried to do something else, and ended up with something far less good. Then again, maybe if they do this match only for five years straight, they’d get good at it.

Aerostar & El Elegido vs Alan Stone & Chris Stone in a lumberjack rules match – crowd is always into lumberjacks strapping people but it doesn’t work as well on TV. I’m really not sure if Aero took a planned fall and the cameras missed it, or if Aero blew something badly and they clipped it out. It never went anywhere, which doesn’t really answer either question.

Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Damián 666, Halloween, X-Fly – they figured out they couldn’t do a finish here only after they booked the match. Oh well. This is actually where they should’ve brought in, like Ragde, Pesadilla and Cosmico, and had the Clowns squash the Perros midcarders AND run off these three when they try to run in post match, just to make it seem like the Perros are in for a world of trouble when they get in the cage. (I think I just made the argument they didn’t book the undefeated team strong enough. Something is wrong here.)

El Mesías, Jack Evans, La Parka vs LA Park, Silver King, Último Gladiador – This was a match just to have a match before the Bizarros stuff. It was a match.

2010 Lucha Libre Win/Loss Records

Checking off end of year stuff to do. There’s something else I’m forgetting…

I recorded 2,564 shows this year, up from 2,356 from last year.

Most Matches

2008: Ultimo Guerrero (228)
2009: La Parka Jr. (211)

204	Místico (top CMLL)
188	La Parka Jr. (top AAA)
184	La Máscara
180	La Sombra
175	Último Guerrero
157	Volador Jr.
153	Silver King
153	Atlantis
151	Brazo de Plata
151	Averno

Sombra’s matches do not include his matches in Japan, which push him to second. Mascara Dorada just missed the list at 150.

Top in IWRG: Dr. Cerbero (97). Eterno has more, but it only points out there’s multiple Eternos.
Top in GDL: Metal Blanco (50) or Astaroth (49) if you don’t count the DF matches for Blanco
Top in Puebla: Black Tiger (26)

Fray Tormenta wins a hair match, Pirata Morgan, women’s cibernetico

If you like Black Terry Jr.’s videos, he’s looking for you to click on Like on them. Thanks.

indy (TUE) 01/11 Arena Aficion [Estrellas del Ring]
1) Aracnido & Nino Tormenta b Caribe King & Kyozer
2) Sexy Lady b Ludark
3) Maldito Jr. & Samot b Big Boy & Super Brazo
4) Bugambilia L Fray Tormenta and Super Crazy and X-Fly and Bestia 666 and Boy Danger [hair]

Fray Tormenta picked up a hair. He and Bugambilia were both down on a bridging pin in the third fall, but Tormenta evidently got a shoulder up. El Siglo de Hidalgo has a good bio of Tormenta.

As the Perros indicated, AAA’s taping 01/27 in Toluca.

Mi Lucha Libre vists Pirata Morgan’s lucha libre classes. He’s got four students, including the new Monsther. Unsurprisingly, Pirata is a hard teacher and scares many students off, but those that last have to wrestle up to his standards.

Shocker wants a singles match with Ultimo Guerrero when he returns, for knocking him off the stretcher and stomping him after Shocker was already hurt. Shocker is thankful the injury is to leg, and not to his face. (Article calls UG Ultimo Dragon in the first reference; oops.) He’s still out for 3 to 4 months.

In matches I keep forgetting to write about here: Mr. Aguila rematches Rey Bucanero at PWG’s Kurt Russellreunion 2. The show is January 29th, in LA.

Lineups

CMLL (TUE) 01/18 Arena Mexico
1) Camaleón & Freesbe vs Apocalipsis & Cholo
2) Dark Angel vs Estrellita, Marcela, Tiffany, Luna Mágica, Princesa Blanca, Lluvia, Zeuxis, La Comandante, Dalys la Caribeña, Princesa Sujei, Mima Shimoda, Goya Kong, La Seductora [#1 Contenders, CMLL WOMEN]
3) Ángel de Oro, Fuego, Sagrado vs Euforia, Nosferatu, Vangelis
4) La Sombra, Máscara Dorada, Místico vs Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero

Amapola is in need of a challenger, so the winner of the cibernetico will get a shot next week. Cesar ranks the chances of everyone in the match. There are people in this match who would have a good match and Amapola is great, but Dark Angel is about three years overdue in winning the title and they might as well win it now. CMLL is loving same side matchups lately, so maybe it’ll be Sujei or Blanca in a champion vs champion match instead.

Super X (MON) 01/31 Deportivo Las Aguilas
1) Astro Boy, Sucesor, Voltron vs Dr. Karonte, Luzbell, Tanque Infernal
2) Mosco de la Merced, Mr. Cóndor, Pentagon vs Chico Che, Oriental, Torero
3) Fuerza Guerrera, Juventud Guerrera, Veneno vs El Dandy, Máscara Sagrada, Solar I

Fuerza & Juvi’s promotion is back, to promote a new lucha libre school Juvi’s opening.

AAA: part 2 of best of

LATV: rerurns

52MX: a very rare Rayo Tapatios match (first non-tournament match on a GdR show, first time as a team on a show since 2008) + the finals of the trios tournament. The Saturday afternoon airing of this show seems to have gone missing; it’s still on Sunday morning.

Teleformula: if they’re back to airing the usual stuff, this week is the Mistico vs Mephisto singles.

—–

CMLL-MEX: back to new stuff, including Mephisto vs Fantasma and Mistico/Maximo/Porky vs Pesta Negra in certain hilarity.

AAA: Part 4 and final of YiR.

CMLL-FOX: Guerrerso vs Panther, Sombra, Mistico

C3: La Mascara vs Psicosis + Hombre Bala’s debut.

CMLL-GDL: bonus match is Truenos vs Cats.

Puebla: listed as only an hour, so Mistico/Negro and the semimian.

Multimedios: back to the main event from this past Sunday? Or maybe the Medico/Chica singles match?

IWRG: back on Thursday this past week, so whatever happens tonight.

CMLL-TFN: onto reruns

Mascara defeats Psicosis, Cats vs Thunder, Dos Leyendas

CMLL (TUE) 01/11 Arena Mexico
***Fan Appreciation Show (January, Tuesday)***
1) Bengala & Camaleón b Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Dr. X, Durango Kid, Hooligan b Ángel Azteca Jr., Hombre Bala Jr., Metálico
3) Dalys la Caribeña, Luna Mágica, Marcela b Amapola, La Seductora, Mima Shimoda
4) Blue Panther, Hijo del Fantasma, Místico DQ Atlantis, Dragón Rojo Jr., Último Guerrero
5) La Máscara b Psicosis

El Hombre de Campana won with another one, then challenged him to mask vs mask match.

Ultimo Guerrero fouled Misitco in the second fall (straight fall loss), then the Guerreros ripped up his mask. Hijo de Fantasma replaced Mascara Dorada, who’s probably still hurt and getting a little extra time off.

Marcela and Luna beat Amapola and Mima to take their match.

Angel Azteca Jr. replaced Guerrero Maya Jr. Still sort of surprises me that Bala is a tecnico. It’s a rudo family.

CMLL (TUE) 01/11 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Acertijo b El Divino
2) Molotov & Sensei b Malefico & Ráfaga
3) Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno b Puma King & Tiger Kid
4) Shigeo Okumura, Virus, Yoshihashi b Black Metal, Metal Blanco, Palacio Negro
5) Máximo, Rush, Toscano DQ Héctor Garza, Texano Jr., Volador Jr.

Volador blasted Rush with a foul to get the DQ.

The tecnico kids stood up to the rudos in the semimain, but still got put down. Virus beat Palacio Negro, Okumura suplexed Metal Blanco.

Puma & Tiger have been undefeated as a team on Sunday shows, but took a loss to another pair of brothers on their Tuesday debut. Cats demanded a rematch.

No Maya here either. Molotov took his place. We still haven’t seen Maya since he was sidelined with hepatitis.  Sensei and Malefico may be feuding.

Samurai was back as ref on this show.

We knew Nitro had won Galactico (San Luis Potosi)’s mask in mid December, but this post reveals Nitro also won the mask of “Power” in Siero de la Nacion, Mexico State on New Year’s Day. Not much of a win when it takes 10 days for anyone to notice, but a win’s a win.

CMLL PR also hypes these possible Dos Leyendas apuesta matches:
– Psicosis vs La Mascara
– Sombra vs Volador
– Dragon Rojo vs Mistico
– Hijo del Fantasma vs Mephisto

First one or last seem more likely, if it’s even on the list.

In Monterrey, Rey Vagabundo lost his mask to Pegasso, but it’s not the Pegasso from AAA & CMLL.

Lucha Libre USA wrestlers are scheduled to appear at the “largest matanza (pig roast) in the world” in Albuquerque on 01/29.

5) El Hijo Del Santo vs Blue Demon Jr.

Big show in Tijuana, if everyone shows. That’s Rayman in the semimain. He was in the magazines last fall, saying he could not have a better father than Rayo de Jalisco Jr., so they’re clearly on good terms again.

CMLL (MON) 01/17 Arena Puebla
1) Black Tiger & Blue Center vs Fuerza Chicana & Sauron
2) Astro Boy, Fabián el Gitano, Höruz vs Bronco, Escorpion, Inquisidor
3) Fuego, Sensei, Starman vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Dr. X, Hooligan
4) Blue Panther, Rush, Toscano vs Ephesto, Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca
5) La Máscara, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada vs Averno, Mephisto, Volador Jr.

Trios champions teaming, if Mascara Dorada shows up. Sangre & Misterioso teaming up in the semimain.

CMLL (TUE) 01/18 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Hierro vs In Memoriam
2) Robin & Sensei vs Demus 3:16 & Durango Kid
3) Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno vs Puma King & Tiger Kid

If Yoshihashi spends any more time in Guadalajara, he’s going to start wearing a sombrero.

It’s nice they remembered Mistico this year, though I think we should all vote for Sombra to drive him insane. More insane. Definitely vote for Mr. Niebla so he can make another surprise return.

Mistico defeats Casas, Perros, Santo, Lucha Libre USA, DTU

La Parka really needs to learn how to share.

CMLL (MON) 01/10 Arena Puebla [Cinco Radio]
4) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto b Blue Panther, Máscara Dorada, Máximo
5) Místico b Negro Casas

Negro with for La Mistica, Mistico got free and beat Negro with a casita.

The article quotes Averno saying he and Mephisto are the best team, and they and the Guerreros are the most important groups in CMLL.

Perros del Mal announced upcoming shows
01/15 Ecatepec
01/27 Toluca
02/01 Pachuca
02/05 Tlanepantla
TBD Tijuana, Cancun, Cozumel, Merida

Ecatepec is an AAA taping – maybe Toluca is too? They usually tape there, though not in Pachuca (Arena Aficion) and Tlanepantla (Arena Lopez Mateos. Perros have also switched their official twitter to @PDMOficial wonder what happened with their old one.

El Hijo del Santo explains he listed “la de a caballo” as a dancing move because he had to pick a genre, not because he considers it a dance. Santo says AAA’s meme about it was because he’s suing them, and didn’t make much sense since they have so many people who actually do dance. Santo says AAA has little morals, for things like how they ripped LA Park on TV and then treated him as a big star when he came back. Santo says he has a big surprise on Feburary 5th, the 27th anniversary of his father’s death. The surprise is “a gift for him.”

Lucha Libre USA action figures are now in Walmart, including Marco Corleone. Their next taping is 01/22.

CMLL’s HD broadcasts are supposed to start Saturday with the main show on Televisa. They’ll also be starting on Fox Sports next weekend. 52MX’s show will also go HD, though the article doesn’t make it clear when that’s happening. Does anyone get the HD versions of these channels?

Surropa.com held a contest last night to promote “the upcoming launch of our officially licensed CMLL t-shirt collection.” First I’ve heard of this, hoping these are cool shirts.

Al Filo del Ring has the video of IWRG’s main event from Sunday.

Hector Garza & Mascara Sagrada are part of Lucha Va Voom’s Valentine’s Day shows (02/09 & 02/10).

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

Lineup

indy (TUE) 01/11 Arena Aficion [Hidalgo Sport]
1) Aracnido & Nino Tormenta vs Caribe King & Kyozer
2) Sexy Lady vs Ludark
3) Maldito Jr. & Samot vs Big Boy & Super Brazo
4) Fray Tormenta, Super Crazy, X-Fly vs Bestia 666, Boy Danger, Bugambilia [mask, hair]

Fray Tormenta! 65 Years Old! Teaming with Super Crazy & X-Fly! Putting his mask on the line! I think this will be different than, say, the Psycho Circus vs Perros del Mal cage match. Whoever takes the pinfall in the third fall loses their hair or mask.

Guys in the opener are Tormenta trainees, and I’d bet Boy Danger is one too.

DTU (SAT) 01/29 Arena Lopez Mateos
1) Dement Xtreme & Lily Monster vs Muerte Bucanera & Oyuki Star
2) Crazy Boy & Lolita vs Keira & Tribal and Daga & Lily Fighter
3) Hormiga & Vaquerita vs Sexy Star & Zumbi and Angelica & Cinthia Moreno
4) Drastic Boy, Máscara Oriental, Vanely vs Ashley, Cyrus, Flamita and Ciclope, Eterno, Megan
5) Fabi Apache & Mari Apache vs Trauma I & Trauma II
6) Aeroboy & Chica Tormenta vs Cerebro Negro & Shitara
7) Paranoiko vs Violento Jack
8) Joe Lider vs Super Mega, Rey Latino

Theme of this show is women in every match but the top 2. The highlight of that is the Apaches vs Traumas. Maybe without Old Man Navarro around, they can actually do that match this time.

Semimain is three falls: first fall “classic”, second fall “extreme”, third fall “ultraviolent”. I had no idea there was a difference between the last two.

Silver King wins in IWRG, Mascara/Bucanero, Octagon/frosty desserts

Multifacetico IV/Black Terry Jr.

IWRG (SUN) 01/09 Arena Naucalpan [Mi Lucha Libre, Estrellas del Ring, Black Terry Jr. (flickr)]
1) Epidemia b Centurión
2) Dinamic Black & Eragon b Alan Extreme & Hammer
3) Bugambilia, El Pollo, Multifacetico IV b Carta Brava Jr., Comando Negro, Eterno
4) Black Terry & Negro Navarro b Ángel Mortal & Gran Apache
5) Damián 666, Hijo del Lizmark, Silver King b Veneno, Tinieblas Jr., Trauma I

The lineup we had was Damian/Silver/?, the lineup at the show had Oficial 911/Lizmark/Silver, and the end result split the difference. (Meanwhile, Veneno replaced Mascara 2K Jr.) Damian yanked Tinieblas’ mask, and Lizmark cradled him for the win.

Semimain is up: Fall 1, Fall 2, Fall 3

Multifacetico beat Comando Negro with a piledriver-like move. Those two are immediately feuding.

CMLL (SUN) 01/09 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Virgo b Thunder Boy
2) Dr. X & Drago b Astro Boy & Neutrón
3) Amapola & La Comandante b Goya Kong & Silueta
4) Felino, Shigeo Okumura, Yoshihashi b Fuego, Gallo, Sagrado
5) Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero, Volador Jr. b Hijo del Fantasma, La Máscara, Máscara Dorada

Bucanero defeated La Mascara cleanly, then asked for a title shot. Mascara offered mask vs hair.

Felino snuck in a foul on his rival Gallo for the pin. The rooster is looking for all sorts of revenge on the feline.

Goya Kong replaced Marcela. There’s only two way Goya Kong matches end: she splashes the other team for the win, or she splashes her partner for the loss. This was the latter, and Silueta was strechered out.

Thunder Boy replaced Cholo. No word if refunds were offered.

Lineup

CMLL (SUN) 01/16 Arena Coliseo
1) Freesbe & Principe vs Camorra & Zayco
2) Astro Boy, Horus, Starman vs Apocalipsis, Demus 3:16, Skándalo
3) Fuego, Pegasso, Rey Cometa vs Cancerbero, Euforia, Raziel
4) Blue Panther, Super Porky, Toscano vs Atlantis, Averno, Héctor Garza
5) Místico vs Último Guerrero

Back at Arena Coliseo after all. Never mind.

CMLL (SUN) 01/16 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Metalik vs Acertijo
2) Metatrón & Virgo vs Inquisidor & Loco Max
3) Ángel de Oro & Ángel de Plata vs Drago & Exterminador
4) Gallo, Hijo del Fantasma, Valiente vs Felino, Sangre Azteca, Volador Jr.
5) La Máscara vs Rey Bucanero [MEX LH]

Bucanero wins! Well, he wins the title match, not so sure about this title.

These lineups means the only show not getting a singles main event next week is Tuesday’s Guadalajara show. Probably more a lot of different plans happening to coincide than one master plan, just because there is never a master plan.
