Estrellita champion, Oro/Casas, Fuerza Guerrera vs Black Terry, CMLL bodybuilding

CMLL (TUE) 11/27/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Infierno & Thunder Boy b Black Metal & Virgo
2) Esfinge & Smaker b Espectrum & Ráfaga
3) Espanto Jr., Hijo del Signo, Hooligan b Ángel Azteca Jr., Magnus, Pegasso
Espanto Jr.’s GDL debut
4) Estrellita b Princesa Blanca [MEX WOMEN]
Princesa Blanca came in as champion. Pegasso and Hijo del Signo were seconds. Estrellita surprised Blanca and pinned her in the first fall, Blanca won the second, Estrellita won the third with the Star Cross to win the championship. Estrellita celebrated big.
5) Ángel de Oro, La Sombra, Titán DQ Dragón Rojo Jr., Negro Casas, Psicosis
Negro Casas fouled Angel de Oro.

Estrellita’s been wrestling regularly since at least 2000, and this is her first championship win of any kind. (She’s not been in CMLL a lot of that time.) This ended Blanca’s near four year change; her title matches were good, but not especially frequent. Blanca gave Estrellita credit for being better on this night but also blamed a knee injury. Estrellita mentioned her recent injury absence wasn’t just due to the cut on her hand, but also an ankle injury. She spent her time out watching Blanca footage to look for a way to defeat her. Both talked about doing a hair vs hair match.

IWRG (THU) 11/29/2012 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), Estrellas del Ring]
1) Galaxie b Epidemia
Another spelling for Galaxy.
2) Dinamic Black & La Cobra b Alan Extreme & Eita
3) el Ángel b Eterno [IWRG IC MIDDLE]
Angel kept the title
4) Bestia 666, Damián 666, Fuerza Guerrera b Dr. Cerebro, Pantera, Veneno
666s were in their Xolo jerseys. Black Terry hit the ring post match to argue with Fuerza, probably about the last FILL show. Fresero Jr., in jeans and a jersey shirt, worked as a referee for this show and separated the two.
5) Black Terry, Negro Navarro, Pirata Morgan b Solar I, Super Astro, Ultraman [super libre]
remach from the previous week. Rudos took 2/3, Navarro pinning Solar. Fuerza hit the ring post match to challenge Terry to a singles match, and he accepted

Angel vs Eterno is up in three parts already.

Fresero Jr.’s father was a referee for AAA. IWRG only seems to have two referees, and it’s not clear if this a change of occupation or an emergency fill in situation. He should still make it rain as a referee.

CMLL held it’s annual bodybuilding contest yesterday.

1) Stukita – mini who has still yet to debut
2) Pequeno Olimpico
3) Pequeno Halcon – was very unhappy about finishing third and threw his trophy into an empty section of seats. Believed to be suspended for that, though he hasn’t been on cards for a couple weeks already.

Beginners (more of a weight distinction than a training one)
1) Flyer – Volador Jr’s nephew
2) Akuma
3) Super Halcon Jr.

1) Sensei
2) Guerrero Maya
3) Camorra

1) La Sombra
2) Valiente
3) Tama Tonga

1) Dark Angel – won for the seventh straight year, every year they’ve run this contest
2) Dalys la Caribena – second for the fourth straight year
3) Isis

The winners all came back for a final contest, and Sensei won that to become Mr. CMLL Absoluto. There was also an apparently unofficial Student group for those enrolled in CML classes. Aioria, who I’ve never heard of prior won. Second place went to Relampago, formerly of AAA and currently in IWRG, with IWRG opening match wrestler Epidemia finishing third.

Tonight’s the first half of Copa Junior. It’s a CMLL random tournament that doesn’t mean anything, but they like to spread out the wins as thinly as possible. Maybe someone who’s been near the top but hasn’t had a big win this year – Mephisto or Mascara Dorada? – will advance.

Rey Cometa either has a busy night or is missing a match tonight. He’s scheduled to main event a show in Queretaro, then wrestle in the tercera in Arena Mexico. I think it’s physically impossible to work both – there’s a 3 hour different start time, but more than 2 hours away from each other – so expect a sub tonight in CMLL.

AAA had a press conference for the 2012 Quien Pinta Por La Corona contest final. They hyped major surprises, then just tweeted out photos of people there. Maybe the major surprise is cameraphones.

LLF’s Perla Negra hurt her wrist, so tonight’s planned mask vs mask match with Lady Puma is off. LLF’s last show of the year is next week and Negra won’t be ready by then either, so the match is postponed indefinitely. The replacement match is Lady Puma versus a mystery woman.

Rob has the top 5 spots of the week.

stuff going on Sunday

(all times Central)
4pm CHIKARA iPPV (I ordered weeks ago without realizing I had other things to watch, oops – I can watch it later, it’ll work out)
4pm CMLL on EstrellaTV (which I usually just half pay attention to)
5pm CMLL on Terra with Terribile vs Sombra for the Heavyweight title.
(5pm Noche de Coliseo, though it seems in repeats)
6pm AAA Guerra de Titanes (time on the poster, maybe not so much)
6:3pm IWRG Prison Fatal

So. The plan is for a chat/live results this week, starting at 5pm and running until I have to stop. We’ll be talking the CMLL show, the AAA show and even the IWRG one if they continue sending out live results. Only the CMLL on Terra show will be available on the internet, so you may be very bored after 7:30pm. It’ll be a fun time until then!

By the way, tickets seem to be selling decently well for Guerra de Titanes. The closest ticket I could get on Ticketmaster was for the fourth ring around the building.



CMLL (MON) 12/03/2012 Arena Puebla
1) Asturiano & Black Tiger vs Espiritu Maligno & King Jaguar
2) Astral vs Demus 3:16 [lightning]
3) Camaleón, Soberano Jr., Starman vs Bobby Zavala, Disturbio, Ramstein
4) Fuego, Pegasso, Stigma vs Bronco, Hijo del Signo, Nitro
5) Ángel de Oro, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Euforia, Niebla Roja, Tiger
6) Atlantis, Marco Corleone, Máximo vs Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Último Guerrero

Bronco! Giant goofy horse might actually be back. The best part is one more guy who can prevent the Cancerberos and Tuareg from accidentally being put on the same team.

Astral and Demus could set up a title rematch.

11/18: Juarez, IWRG

AAA (SUN) 11/16 Poliforo Juan Gabriel, Ciudad Juarez [Albert Cerda]
1) el Romano & Hermes Jr. b ?? & Rey Halcon
2) La Perucha, Magico, Samuari b ?, ??, ???
3) Bello Armando, Chucky, Rocky Santana b Maquina 45 Jr., Peluchin I, Peluchin II
4) Fabi Apache, Gran Apache, Mari Apache b Cinthia Moreno, Oriental, Sexy Star
5) Killer Clown, Psycho Clown, Zombie Clown b Aerostar, Gato Eveready, Super Porky
6) Alan Stone, El Elegido, La Parka Jr. b Electro Shock, Guerrero Escarlata, Mesias

Zorro was supposed to be on this show, was not. This is the third straight time here that’s happened. Mesias and Electro didn’t get along, so they’re building the tecnico turn on spots shows. Announcer introduced the Psycho Circus as the previous set of the clowns, so they punked him out after the match.

IWRG (SUN) 11/16 Arena Naucalpan [SoloLuchas]
1) Halcon 2000 b Avisman
2) Chico Che & Eragon b King Drako & Nemesis IWRG
3) Arlequin & el Hijo del Pierroth b Máscara Año 2000 & Mascara Ano 2000 Jr.
4) Head Hunter I, Head Hunter II, Toxico AAA b Super Astro, Tinieblas Jr., Zatura
5) Fuerza Guerrera b Black Terry [IWRG IC WELTER, hair]

Main event ended up being title vs hair. Terry took the first, Fuerza took the second. In the third, the seconds got involved – Cerebro Negro for Black Terry and Oficial Fierro for Fuerza. To end it, Black Terry got the Fuerza with the backcracker, Fuerza got his foot on the rope, Cerebro Negro attacked Fuerza and got thrown out by the referee. While the referee was busy there, Oficial 911 ran in and hit Black Terry with a chair. Fuerza covered for the win. SoloLuchas says it’s a MOTYC and talks to Fuerza about the win.

Head Hunters forked Zatura. Arlequin/Hijo del Pierroth won with Pierroth II showing up to help.

SoloLuchas always has an interview with IWRG referee Ruvinskis and Mascara de Oro Jr.. Before he was a wrestler, Ruvinskis was the original Mascara de Oro, so he’s handed down the gimmick to his son (who wants revenge on the Head Hunters for forking his father.)

ESTO hypes up tonight’s CMLL show as the return of Negro Casas

Another article on the next Todos x el Todos show.

Al Filo del Ring interviews Rayo de Jalisco Jr., who recently fell out of the ring in a match and ended up with 32 stiched and a neck collar. He hopes to be back in the ring in two weeks. Rayo’s eternal tease of returning to Arena Mexico now is projected at January, because he was busy in Japan earlier. There’s also an interview with Hijo de Pierroth & Arlequin, who are now getting their title shot on 11/23.

SuperLuchas looks back at the Killer vs Villano III (1992) and writes about Blue Panther joining a campagin against violence against women.

07/20: IWRG, Mexico Lineup

Most unhelpful teaser ever: IWRG’s Thursday card featured new champions!

IWRG (THU) 07/19 Arena Naucalpan
1) Misterio Verde & Tortugillo Ninja b Macho II & Rockero del Diablo
2) 911, AK47, Fierro b Kai, Sasaki, Yamato [EdM TRIOS]
3) Black Terry DQ Fantasma de la Ópera [IWRG IC WELTER]
4) Cyborg, Kraneo, Xibalva b Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro, Suicida [IWRG IC TRIOS]
5) Hijo del Cien Caras & Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. b Hijo del Solitario & Pierroth [IWRG IC TAG]

Hijo del Solitario replaced Hijo de Pierroth in the main event, and perhaps that was the difference. Probably not.

The new IWRG IC Trios police officers are the Escuadron de la Muerte, as opposed to the police officers who won the Estadio de Mexico trios titles in the segunda who are the Oficiales. No one’s cleared up that Mexico State trios title confusion yet.

Fantasma lost his title via DQ thanks to something Yamato did – I think he just alerted the ref to the shenanigans.


CMLL (FRI) 07/20 Arena Mexico
1) Moltov & Sensei vs Apocalipsis & Ramstein
2) India Sioux, Luna Magica, Marcela vs La Nazi, Medusa, Rosa Negra
3) Felino, Mascara Purpura, Maximo vs Misterioso II, Satanico, Virus
4) La Mascara, La Sombra, Marco Corelone vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
5) Blue Panther, Dos Caras Jr., Volador Jr. vs Damain 666, Hector Garza, Terrible
6) Mistico & Negro Casas vs Dr. Wagner Jr. & Ultimo Guerrero [CMLL TAG]

Arena Mexico preview: NotiMex, ESTO, Ovaciones. ESTO also interviews Sombra, and they explain that the name is supposed to be a reference to Oro. A Mistico/Oro hyrbird, that’s no pressure at all. They’ve got a recap of Tuesday’s hair match as well. ESTO branches out from CMLL coverage as well, interviewing Krator (who’s starting in IWRG – weirdly, this interview is listed as from Brazil) and picks up a La Paz AAA spot show preview from another paper in it’s network.

CMLL (THU) 07/19 Feria de Durango [El Siglo de Durango]
1) Andy Rock & Estelaris b Chilango (Durango) & Nocturno
2) Camaleon, Gran Mysterio, Milenium b Guerrero Inca, Mulato, Oso Negro
3) Alacran Asesino, Espacial, Negro Sosa b Angel de Oro, Cabllero Negro, Psycko
4) Groon XXX, Mascara Sagrada, Rayman b Angel Blanco Jr., Cien Caras Jr., Texano Jr.

This is the show that followed these guys visiting the cancer ward.

AAA (WED) 07/18 Auditorio Miguel Barragan de San Luis Potosi [Sol de SLP]
4) Cinthia Moreno & Oriental b Miss Janeth & Zumbido [AAA MIXED TAG]
5) Alan Stone, Head Hunter I, Mesias b Antifaz, Gronda II, Intocable

Antifaz replaced La Parka Jr. The change was announced, and refunds were offered (so they learned from Mistico!), but there still were a couple of angry trouble makers in the crowd according to the paper. Antifaz turned on Intocable to cost the tecnicos the match. Miss Janeth replaced Tiffany – doesn’t confirm anything, but does work along with those rumors about Tiffany – and somehow the rudos cheated in such a manner, they won the match but the local comissioner and the promoter came out to overturn the decision. Oriental got stretchered out after the match, which may have had to do with the finish.

AAA (FRI) 07/27 Plaza de Estrellas
1) La Parkita & Martha Villalobos vs La Hechicera & Mini Abismo Negro
2) Crazy Boy & Joe Lider vs Chris Stone & Histeria
3) Billy Boy, Brazo de Plata Jr., Super Porky vs Gran Apache, Super Calo, Zumbido

This is a company party/15 year plaque dedication/small anniversary show. AAA lists “Friday”, which could mean today or next week. I’m guessing. Good to know Chris Stone is employed by the company. Calo is listed as Calo here – and look, Chris and unmasked Calo at the same place as the same time. This would seem to indicate they’re different people.

FCW has a nice new website, with pics from the show last weekend and video from before the cage match.

Ovaciones interviews Veneno, who claims the people are demanding he turn tecnico. I would like to meet these people. Veneno also talks about his side job designing gear. Veneno gives out his cell phone number too, which is not the way I’d go. I don’t think I’m going to put Veneno’s phone number on the internet forever and ever, so you’ll have to go Ovaciones before the page disappears tonight.

(Comic Book Resources) “Lucha Libre”, a comic book about five LA men who decide to take back their neighborhood by putting on masks, will debut from Image Comics in September. The series has apparently been running in Europe for a while, but this’ll be it’s US debut. It looks good.

Milenio Torroen writes about a 900 piece lucha libre exhibition at the 2007 Gomez Palacio fair.

07/16: TripleMania, Coliseo, IWRG, Monterrey, Neza

cmll/gangs all here

Haven’t seen a news report on TripleMania, but there are still skattered bits from fan reports. I’d lead this off with an TripleMania picture, but there’s apparently 2 in all the land, and you’ve seen them.

Black Terry Jr. says there was a video for Ricky Marvin coming in September, but it’s not clear if this is just him working with the group while in Japan or what. Lita’s band performed after the main event due to time issues. He thinks the Chessman fall sell was more angle than actual death. I seriously looked at the cage photo a dozen times before I figured out that was Chessman taking the bump.

Chessman’s too valuable to the company to be attempting suicide on every major show, they’ve got to put a stop to it – Crazy Boy could do it.

– Skap_fett corrects a couple of finishes (opener, Guapos), lists Super Calo’s real name as Rafael Garcia, runs down the large injury list: Scoria (who wasn’t technically in a match!), Joe Lider, Laredo Kid, Zorro, Chessman, La Parka Jr. – those last two were hurting bad.
Dhani says Black Pearl was with the rudos in the Atomicos match, making it 5 v 4.

AAA TV (SUN) 07/15 Toreo de Cuatro Caminos
1) Alfa, Casandro, Fabi Apache, Mini Abismo Negro b Cinthia Moreno, Octagoncito, Oriental, Pimpinela Escarlata
2) Cuervo & Ozz DRAW Crazy Boy & Joe Lider [AAA TAG]
3) Gran Apache & Super Fly b Laredo Kid & Super Calo [losers advance, pi]
4) Super Fly b Super Calo [mask]
5) Fuerza Guerrera b Juventud Guerrera [street]
6) Alberije, El Elegido, Super Porky b Alan Stone, Scorpio Jr., Zumbido
7) Head Hunter I, Rikishi, Ron Killings, Sabu b La Parka Jr., Latin Lover, the Animal, Zorro
8) Mesias L Kenzo Suzuki, Cibernetico, Chessman, Charly Manson, X-Pac [cage, hair]

I’m going to wait till Triple A or Super Lucha gives me official results before I do the results post, to save me from edits later. I’m still not sure about the tag title match. It’ll all end up in one place in the end.

An article that got picked up all over the place talks about AAA’s planned expansion in to the US. Not much new; I didn’t know Televisa didn’t want to produce the TV show in 2003. They list Chicago, Miami, Houston, Los Angeles and New York as cities where AAA will be going, but I’m not sure if they mean live events or if PPVs will just be available.

CMLL (SUN) 07/22 Arena Coliseo [cmll]
1) Astro Boy & Trueno vs Jeque & Messala
2) Lady Apache, Marcela, Sahori vs Amapola, Hiroka, Seductora
3) Fabian el Gitano, Leono, Tony Rivera vs Nosferatu, Satanico, Virus
4) Felino, Heavy Metal, La Mascara vs Emilio Charles Jr., Hirooki Goto, Okumura
5) Alex Koslov, Dos Caras Jr., Dr. Wagner Jr. vs Terrible, Villano III, Villano V
6) Rey Bucanero vs Atlantis [CMLL LH]

I know y’all said you don’t like this card, but I’m thrilled for that main event. Hopefully they’ll get more than 5 minutes this time. And the opener should be fine. It’s tougher defending the stuff in the middle, though building to Amapola/Marcela in a singles match should be fun.

Wagner’s been booked as a tecnico everywhere outside of Arena Mexico. He’s turned on Mistico when he’s teamed with him, but no one else. I think we’ll know if he’s a long term rudo by that finish (so there’s something redeemable about the match – or maybe it’s just build for Dos Caras Jr. versus Terrible for the Heavyweight Championship Of The World! I’m intrigued by the thought of that match too.

3) Asesino Negro, Black Terry, Dr. Mortus b Ave Fenix, Kid Tiger, Star Boy
4) Kai, Ultraman Jr., Yamato DQ Cerebro Negro, Fantasma de la Ópera, Tony Rivera
5) el Hijo Del Anibal, Máscara Sagrada, Negro Casas, Negro Navarro b Cien Caras Jr., Enfermero Jr., Hijo de Cien Caras, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr.

Black Terry attacked Fantasma de la Opera, wanting a shot at the Welterweight title. Mascara Sagrada & Negro Navarro want a shot at Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. & Hijo de Cien Caras’s tag titles. Mascara Sagrada & Negro Navarro want a shot, got that? Okay, look at this:

IWRG (THU) 07/19 Arena Naucalpan [IWRG]
1) Misterio Verde & Tortugillo Ninja vs Macho II & Rockero del Diablo
2) Kai, Sasaki, Yamato vs 911, AK47, Fierro [EdM TRIOS]
3) Fantasma de la Opera vs Black Terry [IWRG IC WELTER]
4) Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro, Suicida vs Cyborg, Guardia, Xibalba [IWRG IC TRIOS]
5) Hijo de Cien Caras & Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. vs Hijo de Pierroth & Pierroth [IWRG IC TAG]

Pierroth != Negro Navarro. That’s a lot of title matches. Mexico State trios are vacant going into that match. Los Cerebros/Suicida are the Trios champs. Fantasma de la Opera turned tecnico and the Japanese turned rudo since the last time we really got weekly info on this group.

In Guadalajara, Dr. Wagner Jr. did retain the UWA World Heavyweight Championship.

CMLL AZTECA (WED) 07/25 Arena Xalapa Lineup [El Sol de Xalapa]
1) Jaguar, Linterna Verde vs Guerrero del Infierno, Soldado Anonimo
2) Samuray, Gabriel o Gabriela vs Perro Mocho Jr., Rey Garfio Jr.
3) Dark Angel, Luna Magica vs Hiroka, Mima Shimoda
4) La Sombra, Valiente, Stuka Jr. vs Nitro, Dr. X, Skandalo
5) Mistico, Ultimo Guerrero vs Averno, Dr. Wagner Jr. [pi]

That’s going to suck for Mistico. Article is actually more about the people who run the arena talking about how things have improved much lately (since a negative article about the arena.)

In Notimex, Wagner and UG crow about winning the tag team titles. Mask vs Mask challenge, check. Full show recap from Notimex is here.

06/26: Merida, Puebla, Monterrey

I’m not going to write much more about the Chris Benoit story at this point, but it is pretty much all I’m thinking about.

CMLL PYCV (SUN) 06/24 Poliforum Zamna de Merida [YucaRod]
1) Corazon Rockero, Espartano I, Jhony Reyna DQ Cachorro JR., Chupacabras, Proverbio
2) Panther Boy L Butire Lee, Rey Persa, Dr. Siniestro [hair]
3) Caballero Galactico, Mascara Purpura, Máscara Sagrada b Dr. X, Nitro, Sangre Azteca

3) Estrellita & Josseline b May Flowers & Polvo de Esterllas
4) Antifaz del Norte & Hator b Pimpinela Escarlata & the Mummy
5) Charly Manson & Gronda II DQ Monsther & Pirata Morgan

Pirata Jr., Drake, and Barba Roja ran in the main event to help Pirata and get DQed, after the tecnicos dominated most of the match.

CMLL (MON) 06/25 Arena Puebla [hugo999]
1) Mr. Rafaga & Siki Osama Jr. b King Jaguar & Legionario
2) Batman, SWAT, the Tiger DQ Black Terry, Fuerza Chicana, Kraken
3) Felino, Mascara Purpura, Mictlan b Goto, Ohara, Okumura
4) Averno, Mephisto, Sangre Azteca b La Mascara, La Sombra, Sagrado
5) Atlantis, Lizmark Jr., Olimpico b Negro Casas, Shocker, Volador Jr.

Black Terry fouled the Tiger in the segunda, causing his team to lose in two falls. Batman may have been hurt in that match.

A couple of CMLL card changes for later in the week. Shocker is out of Gran Alternativa. Valiente will instead team with Dos Caras Jr. Dos will all wrestle on Sunday, as the added match will be a trios rematch from last week – Ultimo, Toscano, Universo vs Rey, Marco, and Dos. says it’s “sin limites”, but I don’t believe it has super libre rules.

In today’s Ovaciones, Blue Demon Jr. says his mask match with Espectro Jr. will take some time in August, and he’s hoping to come back to CMLL after that.

5) Mistico vs Averno

The Tijuana comission will be holding a exam for new wrestlers trying to get their lucha license on Wednesday. They’re expecting about 20 people to tryout, and the test will go three hours.

In Veracruz, a promoter bought the rights to hold AAA’s Guerra de Titanes on June 15. You may have noticed there was no Guerra de Titanes on June 15th. The local promoter dealt with a middle company, not AAA. The local promoter is claiming the middle company lied to them and took their money, and the middle company says they didn’t sign anything. No quotes from AAA at all here.

El Sol de Tampico writes about the 07/04 Auditorio Municipal Tampico show with Wagner vs Atlantis vs Park

4) Blue Panther, Dos Caras Jr., Marco Corelone DQ Averno, Mephisto, Sangre Azteca
5) Místico, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero b Damián 666, Halloween, Misterioso II

Misterioso II logically replaced Mr. Aguila – I don’t know why CMLL thought Aguila could work both this and Cinco Magnificos show – and Sangre fouled Blue Panther in the semimain. That’d be a fun feud, I wonder if Panther is still a middleweight.

Negro Navarro wins the 1st stage of the maestro tournament VIP is running. Black Terry was the runner up, which earns him another shot in the five man battle on the next show.

This includes the TripleMania one, which we’re still not sure of – everyone’s only using the original thread as source. I’m thinking the lineup is what AAA has down on paper, but they might not have all the foreign names confirmed at this point.

El Zocalo de Monclova has an interview with (masked) Mascara Ano 2000 and Universo 2000. Things have never been as good as the first couple years of the 90s when Cien had his mask match with Rayo and Mascara beat Anibal for his mask; it’s never like the old days. If this blog goes 50 years (and it won’t), I vow to just write cranky posts about The Old Times Were Better. Universo says he’s talking to two guys about possibly carrying on his name (it has to be two with this crew) – his daughters have no interest in lucha libre and he wouldn’t let them get in the business anyway.

There was also a press conference in Monclova before the first CMLL show there in some time, but the paper doesn’t appear to have results.

El Sol de Tlaxcala has an interview with indy wrestler Astro Aereo. He says he’s been wrestling for 10 years, trained by Tarahumara and is hoping to break into Arena Puebla.

Coliseo DF results are in yesterday update.

Super Luchas #215 has the Villanos vs Atlanits, and an interview with Black Terry, where he says he’s close to retirement.
El Sol de Tijuana writes about Medico Asesino’s Jr. final match.
El Sol de Tulancingo has a story about a lucha libre school endorsed by Crazy Boy. (Please make your own joke here.)
Axxel is interviewed in El Sol de Tampico after a show where he teamed with Kai and Yamato vs Peligro, Veneno, and Transmetal (I think.)
– I think there’s some arena issue at Arena Xalapa, but that column doesn’t really explain what’s up.

AAA (WED) 06/20 Auditorio Miguel Barragan de San Luis Potosi [El Sol de SLP]
1) ?, Astro Latino, Dragon Chino vs Principe Leon, Turbo X, X Turbo
2) Apolo Star, Centella Inca, Super AAA vs Americo, Black Maravilla, Cosaco Loco

2) Maximo, Stuka Jr., Valiente vs Loco Max, Misterioso II, Virus
3) Alex Koslov, Blue Panther, Rey Bucanero vs Ephesto, Mephisto, Olimpico
4) LA Park, Super Parka, Volador Jr. vs Damian 666, Halloween, Mr. Aguila
5) Dr. Wagner Jr., Mistico, Shocker vs Atlantis, Averno, Ultimo Guerrero

Notable because my dream of Mistico being put out of action on Friday’s show to get rest and/or surgery seems very unlikely.

03/21: Coliseo, Naucalpan, Monterrey


CMLL (SUN) 03/18 Arena Coliseo
1) Apocalipsis, Hooligan, Ramstein b Starman, Super Nova, Trueno
2) Felino, Mictlan, Valiente b Loco Max, Misterioso II, Mr. Mexico
3) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto b Alex Koslov, La Mascara, Volador Jr.
4) Leono b Mogur [hair]
5) Dos Caras Jr., Lizmark Jr., Mistico b Black Warrior, Olimpico, Ultimo Guerrero

Bit more stacked Coliseo card than usual, at least in terms of the first two matches. Or, I guess you could look at it as the opener getting bumped for the hair match. Mogur’s family was at the show – sad for them. Mistico got Ultimo clean with La Mistica. Averno pinned Volador in the tercera after a foul.

CMLL (TUE) 03/20 Arena Coliseo
1) Bracito de Oro & Mini Fantasy b Mini Halloween & Mini Mr. Aguila
2) Apocalipsis, Hooligan, Ramstein b Danger, Sombra de Plata, Trueno
3) Amapola, La Nazi, Rosa Negra b India Sioux, Lady Apache, Marcela
4) Eclipse, Misterioso II, Olimpico b La Mascara, Mictlan, Virus
5) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto b Dr. Wagner Jr., Fabian el Gitano, Heavy Metal

Amapola beat Lady Apache. Shocker no-showed. The sun rose in the east, and set in the west.

Looks like the Trio of Terror is getting a legit push; Averno pinned Wagner here after a mask pull.

IWRG (SUN) 03/18 Arena Naucalpan
1) Celestial b Diablo Jr.
2) Black Jaguar & Vampiro Metalico b Samba & Venom
3) Kai, Kid Tiger, Yamato b Black Jaguar, Macho II, Supremo Jr.

5) Fantasma de la Opera b Cerebro Negro, Pierroth Jr., El Dandy, Villano III, Veneno, Alex Koslov, Dr. Cerebro, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., Bestia Salvaje [IWRG IC WELTER, cage]

Came down to Villano III (hair), Dandy (MEX LH), Cerebro Negro (IWRG WELTER) and Fantasma de la Opera (mask). Villano III and Dandy got out first, and they’re still teasing that match. Cerebro Negro went to escape, but Black Terry spit something into his face, and that was the end of Cerebro Negro. Black Terry got the win the semimain with his feet on the ropes, so it was a good day to be Black Terry. We probably should’ve known this from the get go – anytime you’re teaming with the Unbeatable Traumas, it’s a good day.

IWRG (SUN) 03/25 Arena Naucalpan
1) Celstial & Zella vs Comando Gama & Vampiro Metalico
2) Antaris & Bacteria vs Black Thunder & Narcosatanico I

5) Axxel, Humberto Garza Jr., Super Konnan b Hijo de Espanto II, Nygma, Picudo
6) Ragaltio & Raton b Konnan Big

Lost my link list due to a power outage, so hopefully I don’t forget something good…
– Ovaciones has a blurb about Hector Garza and Shocker (in theory) being involved with a TV show called “La Ruleta de la Muerte” in April. I’ve read the bit ten times and still have no idea what’s going on, but I think they’re doing a lucha Fight Club thing. Or it may be a music video. Or it may be something else.
Laredo Kid received an award for best luchador of Nuevo Laredo in 2006.
– a writer at Bolpress recalls working on a never completed autobiography with Huracan Ramirez.
Guerreros del Ring #79 has the Hellbrothers. Chessman appears to be drooling blood.

WWE guys hit Mexico today, so there should be amusing stories the rest of the week. Rey Misterio was scheduled to appear on these shows, dunno if that’s still on.

03/08: Mistico, Madreo, Laguna, IWRG, Monterrey actually gets a quote from Mistico about WWE! It’s not much: he says he’s talked to WWE, but there’s no deal in place. Yet.

CMLL (WED) 03/07 Centro de Convenciones Madero [Dinamita @ box y lucha]
1) Baby Lover & Oro Negro b Mensajero de la Muerte & Silver Fox
2) Amapola, Hiroka, La Nazi b India Sioux, Lady Apache, Princesa Blanca

4) Atlantis, Olímpico, Último Guerrero b Dos Caras Jr., Electroshock, Lizmark Jr.
5) el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Héctor Garza, LA Park b Dr. Wagner Jr., Marco Corelone, Shocker

Good crowd for the show, which was originally supposed to include Mistico. Show was so to be pretty good.

CMLL (THU) 03/08 Arena Olimpico Laguna [siglo de torreon]
1) Semental & Venum vs Dorado Jr. & Lobo del Aire
2) Piloto Negro vs Hijo del Sobearno
3) Diabolico & Mr. Guerrero vs Arana Cibernetica I & Arana Cibernetica II
4) Atlantis, Black Warrior, Ultimo Guerrero vs Dos Caras Jr., Heavy Metal, Lizmark Jr.

Torreon is getting a new 12,000 seat arena that’ll be set up for . (Notimex vs Vanguardia

IWRG’s card has changed a little

1) Aguila Oriental vs Sasaki
2) Antaris & Ave Fenix vs Macho II & Vampiro Metalico
3) Kai, Kid Tiger, Yamato vs Super Colt, Trauma I, Trauma II
4) El Dandy, Esfinge, Suicida vs Bestia Salvaje, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., Pierroth Jr.

5) Black Dragon, Casanova, Golden Boy vs Hijo del Espanto II, Pancho Tequila, Potro Jr.

So Konnan Big and Axxel’s team is losing, and Axxel’s getting his belt back.

CMLL (SUN) 03/04 Arena Emilizno Zapata [el pancracio]

5) Blue Panther, La Mascara, Solar I b Averno, Ephesto, Negro Navarro
6) Dos Caras Jr., Rey Bucanero, Shocker b Eclipse, Fuerza Maligna, Olimpico

The fans in Matamoros weren’t happy about a Mistico/Wagner vs Perro/Coco Rojo (Black Warrior MIA) with two quick falls to start and Mistico taking off quickly after the match was over. (El Manana de Matamoros)

Milenio has an article about mini women wrestlers.

03/03: Mexico results, lineups, IWRG, GdR

CMLL (FRI) 03/02 Arena Mexico [ova]
1) Hooligan & Ramstein b Danger & Trueno
2) Leono, Metro II, Virus b Loco Max, Nitro, Okumura
3) Felino, Sagrado, Ultimo Dragon b Eclipse, Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca
4) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto b Heavy Metal, La Mascara, Volador Jr.
5) Alex Koslov, Marco Corleone, Rey Bucanero b Atlantis, Ultimo Guerrero, Universo 2000
6) Mistico b Perro Aguayo Jr.

Perro dominated the first fall, and was on his way to winning the second when he yanked off Mistico’s mask, getting DQed. Mistico got a new one, and rallied back, getting a pinfall when the ref was down, and later getting La Mistica for the win. Ovaciones says we could see the hair match at the Dos Leyendas show, March 30 – so they’ve pushed it back another week?

La Mascara and Eclipse got hurt in their matches. Ovaciones recap hinted they were going to try Marco/Universo again next week.

CMLL (FRI) 03/09 Arena Mexico Lineup
1) Valiente, Molotov vs Ramstein, Apocalipsis
2) Virus, Leono, Mictlan vs Okumura, Ohara, Dr. X
3) Blue Panther, La Mascara, Maximo vs Misterioso II, Ephesto, Sangre Azteca
4) Dos Caras Jr., Lizmark Jr., Volador JR. vs Atlantis, Ultimo Guerrero, Olimpico
5) Mistico, Rey Bucanero, Alex Koslov vs Black Warrior, Averno, Mephisto
6) Marco Corelone vs Universo 2000

Non title match. Make sure he’s got his plane ticket!

CMLL (TUE) 03/06 Arena Coliseo Lineup
1) Espiritu, Karisma vs Vaquero, Cobalto
2) Starman, Super Nova, Tiger Kid vs Polvora, Super Comando, Artillero
3) Tigre Blanco, Tigre Metalico, Tony Rivera vs Arkangel, Hooligan, Loco Max
4) La Mascara, Satanico, Sagrado vs Mascara Ano 2000, Pierroth, Emilio Charles Jr.
5) Dos Caras Jr., Heavy Metal, Lizmark Jr. vs Halloween, Damian 666, Mr. Aguila

That would be Kid Tigers’s Coliseo debut, I think.

CMLL (SUN) 03/11 Arena Coliseo Lineup
1) Danger, Truneo vs Messala, Caligula
2) Lady Apache, India Sioux, Luna Magica vs La Nazi, Rosa Negra, Medussa
3) Leono, Stuka Jr., Tony Rivera vs Arkangel, Mr. Mexico, Mogur
4) La Mascara, Mictlan, Ogun vs Pierroth, Hijo de Pierroth, Okumura
5) Marco Corleone, Dos Caras Jr., Alex Koslov vs Damian 666, Halloween, Mr. Aguila

They gotta be doing the hair match next week, right?

Super Crazy was visiting, here at Arena Mexico and on the IWRG show on Thursday. Speaking of…

IWRG (THU) 03/01 Arena Naucalpan
1) Comando Gama b Celestial
2) Ave Fenix & Kid Tiger b Bestial & Dr. Maldad
3) Aki, Fabian el Gitano, Yamato b Fantasma de la Opera, Trauma I, Trauma II
4) Black Terry, Kraneo, Zandokan b Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro, Suicida
5) El Dandy, Electroshock, Heavy Metal b Bestia Salvaje, Pierroth, Veneno

Semimain had rudos beat the trios champs in a non-title match, but they’re actually setting up a Black Terry/Cerebro Negro title match there. Third match was said to be particularly good, which must mean it was 83% awesome and 14% Fabian el Gitano.

on Guerreros del Ring:
unmasked: Mr. Aguila, who turns out to be Papi Chulo
02/25 Coliseo: Leono, Sagrado, Virus vs Arkangel, Mogur, Nitro
02/16 Mexico: Eclipse, Mascara Ano 2000, Universo 2000 vs Blue Panther, Lizmark Jr., Negro Casas
New bonus: a super annoying scroll on the bottom of the screen where people (and by people, we mean 12-15 year old kids) can text message comments (90% about Cena, Undertaker and Batista)

Either this week or next week is my last week of this, I think, unless I figure out something.
