04/10: Neza, IWRG, Puebla

CMLL (SAT) 03/29 Gimnasio de la USMA, Panama City, Panama [TodoSports: title match, everything else]
1) Thunder Boy b Tornado
2) Guason o Wasson & Mala Sangre DQ Antorcha Jr. & Kumanchu
3) Destroyer, El Tahur, Pesadilla b Cazaor, Emperador, Kalalu
4) Amapola b Princesa Blanca [CMLL WOMEN]
5) Arkangel de la Muerte, Ken-Swi, Shigeo Okumura b Celestial (Panama), Negro Casas, Sandokan

Okumura gave Celestial a martinete and rematches were vowed. I think I know where Okumura is losing his hair in ’08. This is the son of the original Sandokan.

I found these articles from the luchandolibre blog (based in Panama?), which seems good. The entry about this match wonders what happened to Amapola’s IWRG title, so they’re aces with me already.

CMLL (THU) 04/03 Arena Neza [the gladiatores]
1) Enter & Exodo b Crismar & Gotico
2) Pólvora & Vaquero b Kid Tiger & Sensei
3) Calígula & Méssala DQ Artillero & Súper Comando
4) La Máscara, Máximo, Stuka Jr. b Arkangel de la Muerte, Disturbio, Skandalo
5) Atlantis, Olímpico, Último Guerrero b Dr. Wagner Jr., Shocker, Volador Jr.

DQ in the third match was because Polvora & Vaquero ran in and attacked the armed forces. That’s money.

CMLL (SUN) 04/06 Arena Neza [the gladiatores]
1) Spartano I & Spartano II b Golden Star & Mr. Cesar
2) Súper Camaleón & Súper Tri b Angel Perverso & Ministro
3) Chac Mool & Rayo Tapatío I b Calígula & Méssala
4) Bam Bam & Mascarita Dorada b Pequeño Damian 666 & Pequeño Halloween
5) Rayo Tapatío II b Ciclon Furia [mask]

Ciclon Furia is Enrique Gonzalez Melgar, 34, 10 years a wrestler, and originally from Guatamala! Always interesting when a non-Mexican turns up.

IWRG AZTECA (SUN) 04/06 Arena Naucalpan [the Gladiatores]
1) Avisman & Star Boy b Nemesis IWRG & Rockero del Diablo
2) Black Terry, Trauma I, Trauma II b Chico Che, Fantasma de la Ópera, Freelance
3) Aeroman, Freelance, Multifacético, Zatura b Masada, Septiembre Negro II, Veneno, Ventarron Negro
4) Negro Navarro b Solar I
5) el Hijo Del Anibal, El Hijo del Solitario, Rayo de Jalisco Jr. b Hijo del Cien Caras, La Park, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr.

Hijo de Cien Caras might hurt a shoulder in the blood, brawling main event.

The Gladiatores #79 is up, not just with recaps, but a ton of interviews, ranging from Messala & Caligula to Joaquin Roldan.

CMLL (MON) 04/07 Arena Puebla [hugo999]
1) Black Terry, Negro Navarro, Policeman b Blue Center, Toro Bill Jr., Toro Bill Sr.
2) Loco Max, Nitro, Skandalo vs Máximo, Metálico, Stuka Jr.
3) Pequeño Damian 666 b Mascarita Dorada [CMLL MINI]
4) Dr. Wagner Jr., Héctor Garza, Último Dragón b Averno, Ephesto, Terrible
5) Místico b Último Guerrero

Mistico won clean. The minis match was best of the night and got money thrown in.

AAA CANTU (MON) 04/07 Arena Cuatro Caminos de Nuevo Laredo [RFC]
4) Charly Manson & Cibernetico b Kenzo Suzuki & Mesias

Zorro and Chessman missed the match, announced as out 15 days due to injuries. Of course, Zorro wrestled in Torreon and both are supped to wrestle tonight in Toluca.

Crazy Boy returned on the DTU show, the last man appearing of a locker room emptying brawl, He dived off the same ledge he got hurt on at the last DTU show, though this time he didn’t try to do a moonsault and had the whole locker room catching him.

Ovaciones talks to Hijo de Cien Caras and Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. about their success in IWRG and random never happening mask challenges to Rayo de Jalisco Jr.

(El Norte via EL_Jawa @ Satanico’s Mansion & Reforma via Jazzo) Marco Corelone says he’s heard WWE is intersted in hiring him back, via his good friend Rey Misterio Jr., but wants to stay in Mexico for the time being. He’s looking for a big match versus El Terrible.

Also, Valiente wants a one on one match with Ultimo Guerrero. That could work.

El Occidental writes about a strange lucha libre sculpture in Gudalajara.

Blue Demon and Rebecca de Alba are sponsoring 5 and 10 mile runs to benefit children with cancer. The event is on 05/25, and there’ll be a lucha libe show after the runs.

Tampico area wrestler King Boy was arrested for “obscene touching of an eight year old.”

04/11-13 Lucha Times


AAA-US: Last stop before Rey de Reyes. Two last people get in, and Abismo spends a last day as a rudo for now.

CAN52: A quintessential segunda and Dos/Mistico/Shocker vs the Guerreros.

FSE-US: Rebeldes vs those low on the segunda totem pole: Metalico, Starman, Super Nove and random tecnicos vs random rudos in the main event.

Note that next week, the new FSE episode airs on Friday. Actually, it airs at 5PM Eastern, and I just happen to have scheduled some work for my cable system between 2 and 6. Luckily for me, it reairs on Sunday.


CMLL: Gala list 1:45, so top 3.

AAA-MEX: quick turn around on the Torreon taping. The end of Fabi Apache for now, and Cibernetico vs Zorro in the main event.

FSE-MEX: Women’s match and Perros vs Tecnicos

Cadena3: Mentallo and other things that happned on Tuesday, where I still haven’t seen results.

04/30 AAA TV Lineup (Aguscalientes)

Previous: 04/10 (Toluca), 04/16 (Ceyala), 04/27 (Zapopan)

AAA TV (WED) 04/30 Auditorio Morelos de Aguscalientes
1) Billy Boy, el Ángel, Gato Everady vs Ángel Mortal, Gran Apache, Mr. Cóndor
2) Extreme Tiger, Halloween, TJ Xtreme vs Alan Stone, Chris Stone, Super Calo
3) Crazy Boy & Juventud Guerrera vs Jack Evans & Teddy Hart
4) Abismo Negro vs Black Abyss
5) Escoria, Mesias, Ozz vs Electro Shock, Head Hunter I, Konnan
6) Cibernetico vs Zorro [1, AAA HEAVY]

Projected air date (#835)
Mexico: 05/11
US: 05/31

I’m listing this as #1 contenders match, but the wording makes it sound like it’s only for one guy. If Zorro wins, he gets a title shot. If Cibernetico wins, he gets a pat on the back and a firm handshake of congratulations, I guess. TripleMania is looking like Zorro/Mesias in a rudo/rudo battle with the Hell Brothers finally facing the Clowns, but that doesn’t sound TripleMania level.

Black Abyss will be around for all of three weeks before getting into the on one on one match. That appears to be on a fast track to a mask match.

Juvi/Crazy vs Teddy/Jack is probably the best possible match with the Mexican Powers involved. I hope Crazy Boy is 100% when he comes back, because he’s surely looking forward to these matches and hopefully can make the most of them.

Apache family drama seems to be on pause this month. I’m not sure if that’s why they ran the injury angle, or if the cause/effect is the other way around, but I don’t think we’re getting a hair match for TripleMania.

Upcoming tapings
– no less than 5 more tapings before
– 06/13 DF (TripleMania)

04/27 AAA TV Lineup (Zapopan)

Previous: 04/05 (Torreon), 04/10 (Toluca), 04/16 Ceyala

AAA TV (SUN) 04/27 Auditorio Benito Juarez, Zapopan
1) Killer Clown, Psycho Clown, Zombie Clown vs Aerostar, Pegasso, Super Fly
2) Crazy Boy & Joe Lider vs Extreme Tiger & Halloween [AAA TAG]
3) Alan Stone, El Alebrije, Laredo Kid vs Head Hunter I, Jack Evans, Teddy Hart
4) Abismo Negro & Super Porky vs Black Abyss & Mr. Niebla
5) Charly Manson, Chessman, La Parka Jr. vs Electro Shock, Kenzo Suzuki, Konnan
6) Cibernetico vs Zorro vs Mesias

Projected air date (#834)
Mexico: 05/04
US: 05/24

In most promotions, running the triangle match now means they’re not planning on running it later. In this promotion, I have no idea.

Black Abyss is clearly the mystery partner for the 04/16 taping. I’m thinking this is the Vipers taking the Abismo Negro gimmick and giving it to a new person, and it’s a rudo move. I’d think that’d be a tecnico move in AAA.

Jack Evans vs Alebrije = $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Actually, if Head Hunter stays out of the way, that could be fun.

I’d lean towards a title change, but it’s not a certainty. Maybe the TV lead up will get a better idea.

Another win for the Clowns.

04/06: Gudalajara

CMLL (SUN) 04/06 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [CMLL]
1) Palacio Negro b Novato
2) Thunder Boy b Valentin Mayo
3) Fraile de la Muerte & Guero Loco b Metatron & Virgo
4) Depredador (Guadalajara), Mr. Trueno, Rey Trueno b Flash, Máscara Púrpura, Metalik
5) Metal Blanco b Vaquero [hair]
6) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto b La Sombra, Rayman, Sagrado

Down goes Vaquero! Tavomarz66 says Vaquero joined the Bald Brotherhood with Charles Barkley, but not Britney Spears (since she’ll just dishonor the group.) I’m thinking he’s a big PTI fan.

PYCV (SUN) 04/06 Unidad Deportiva Inalambrica [fusiont @ Satanico’s Mansion]
4) Rey Persa L Rebelde Punk, Super Piloto, Buitre Lee, Vaquero de Oro, Cachorro Jr., Lobo Salavje, Chupacabras, Tormenta Negra Jr., Corsario jr. [cage]

Rey Persa is Jose Maria Hernandez Garcia, 18 years a wrestler, from Tuxtla, Gutierrez, Chiapas.

CMLL (MON) 04/21 Cancha German Evers [Dragon_Extremo @ Satanico’s Mansion]
1) Kempo Dragon, Serpiente Marina, Tyogn vs Satgento Negro, Spartan, Terremoto King
2) Apocalipsis (NWG) vs Crazystin [ladder]
3) Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno vs Metal Balnco & Mr. Trueno [PACIFIC COAST TAG]
4) Sangre Azteca vs Sagrado [MEX WELTER]
5) La Sombra & Místico vs Averno & Mephisto

The Truenos are the current champs. So is Sangre, but I figured you knew that one.

Rey Misterio Jr. is nominated for Faovrite Extreme Athlete in the American Latino TV awards (on the LatiNation network.) Voting is online, so I like Rey’s chances in this one, though the competition is more credible than Abismo Negro. What’s great is the press release doesn’t actually mention when the winners will be announced. You’d think that’d be important. (thanks to mikeinformer)

Vangelis told Reforma he’s in CMLL to win his title back. I think the right think for Mistico to do would be to give him the title so he goes away. Mistico has four other ones he doesn’t use and it’d be for the greater good.

Noticias-Oaxaca profiles local female wrestler Olimpia.

There’s a rumor Lady Apache is still out of action because she’s pregnant.

There’s a poster listing all 200 people scheduled to appear, including those without announced matches, on the lucha libre expo’s website (scroll down a little.)

According to MedioTiempo AAA announced some non-match events for the Expo at the press conference to officially joint the show. Super Calo, Gran Apache and El Mexicano (?) will have a wrestling clinic for kids, Super Porky, Abismo Negro, Elegido, Psicosis and Cuervo will particpate in a “Rudos y Tecnicos” panel discussion.

I don’t anything about going to Mexico, but I would think that May 2nd week is the time to go. You can hit the Expo and Toryumon’s usually running a show about that time (which means guys in for the International Gran Prix.)

Super Comando & Artillero vs Moltov & Tiger Kid


While I’ve got you here, can I request that those who leave comments without a name please pick a name? If you post a comment without a name and with a link, there’s 90% chance the comment spam filter is going to junk it and no one’s going to see it for days. (It’s not a lot better odds if you don’t have a link.) Plus, I just assume all unnamed comments are Chui’s and that doesn’t seem to be accurate lately.

I’m not going to force anyone to change their ways, but if you want your comment noticed, it needs to have something in the name box. Thanks!

completely off topic: next time I run thru the roster, I need to change “Openers” to “Novatos” and then maybe split the midcard into segunda (anyone who ever faces or teams with Ohara or Okumura) and tercera divsions.

Vaquero’s still there. HMMMM. Haven’t seen weekend results yet. Depredador is the current champ. I’d think it’s title change.
