Avernos defeat Estetas to set up title match, Cibernetico on his bald head

CMLL (MON) 06/24/2013 Arena Puebla [El Popular, Poblanerias]
1) Bengala & Milenium b Cholo & Siki Ozama Jr.
Bengala submitted Siki.
2) Amapola, La Vaquerita, Princesa Sugheit b Dalis la Caribeña, Lluvia, Luna Mágica
Devil’s Wings on Dalis for the win.
3) Bárbaro Cavernario, Espíritu Maligno, Skándalo b Black Metal (Guadalajara), Pegasso, Tritón
Metal & Cavernario’s debut in this arena. Skandalo Driver on Pegasso.
4) Shocker, Stuka Jr., Super Porky b Kráneo, Morphosis, Psicosis
Porky senton on Kraneo.
5) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto b Máscara Dorada, Mistico, Valiente
Rudos jumped the tecnicos before the match and took the first fall. Mistica on Averno tied it up. Rudos destroyed the tecnicos mask in the third fall, but no DQ was called and the Avernos went on to win. It set up a title match next week.

Title match should be really good. I’m not linking to it, but El Popular’s cover photo has Valiente’s face exposed (rudos in the process of ripping it to shreds.) That’s not a good deal. You can track it down if you want but I don’t want to multiply it here.

The usual video post is delayed. I’m hoping to get it up today, but the power keeps going off and I find the process of uploading video goes better with electricity. It’ll go up eventually.

Cibernetico says he acknowledges his loss, but wants the public to consider how it happened. He likes his new bald look and may even keep it, but he remains the god of wrestling.

MT has a story on Averno crashing the Blue Panther press conference. Averno says the first mask he had as a kid was Blue Panther’s, but now he wants Panther’s hair. This caused some changing to the booking; Blue Panther is going to be at Arena Mexico Friday to presented with the Honor of Sporting Merit award from the Durango congress, and takes Titan’s place on the show. Panther will still work the same number of the matches this week, so he’s pulled off tonight’s card in Guadalajara and Apolo Dantes says Sagrado is in. It’s disappointing the Valiente/Blue Panther vs Virus/Negro Casas match won’t happening, but CMLL has other priorities.

In AULL, Cerebro Maligno defeated Herejia to set up an AULL Light Heavyweight Title match. Lady Apache is now working segundas on AULL shows with the building 15% full. (On the other hand, it’s really great for the other women she’s working with to include someone who knows what they’re doing.)

IWL, which at one point had a big falling out with Arena Lopez Mateos as was making a point of running their shows in Tlalnepantla as competition, is back to running in Arena Lopez Mateos. Show will take place “in late July or early August.”

CMLL Puebla on TVC Deportes will actually air today at 4pm. It was moved for futbol, as usual. However, the site that used to host the feed has changed homes and drastically scaled down the number of feeds. TVC shares a feed with 3 other channels and that feed isn’t working now.

CMLL (SUN) 06/30/2013 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Divino & Virgo vs Évola & Magnum
2) Esfinge, León Blanco, Metatrón vs Acertijo, Espectrum, Infierno
3) Black Metal, Gallo, Leo, Super Popular vs Bárbaro Cavernario, Exterminador, Maléfico, Ráfaga
4) Azteca de Oro vs Demonio Rojo [mask]
5) Máscara Dorada, Mistico, Valiente vs Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Niebla Roja
6) Atlantis vs Último Guerrero

Super Popular is my new favorite luchador. He is everyone’s new favorite luchador. (Maybe he’s a sponsored luchador?)

Mask match is a true toss up.

CMLL (MON) 07/01/2013 Arena Puebla
***Arena Puebla 60th Anniversary***
1) Aéreo, Fantasy, Último Dragoncito vs Mercurio, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito
2) Leono, Robin, Stigma vs Espíritu Maligno, Inquisidor, Skándalo
3) Bushiroad, Hijo del Fantasma, Máximo vs Felino, Negro Casas, Puma
4) Atlantis, La Máscara, Shocker vs Gran Guerrero, Último Guerrero, Volador Jr.
5) Máscara Dorada, Mistico, Valiente vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto [CMLL TRIOS]
Estetas del Aire are champions, first defense.

That’s not Diamante Azul vs Rey Bucanero, but I think the Puebla people will be okay with that replacement main event. Only one Puebla regular on the show, Espiritu Maligno in the semimain. A bit concerned they’re heading to the Arena Puebla regular end game with him.

IWRG (THU) 06/13/2013 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), Estrellas del Ring]
1) Fulgor I b Seiya
2) Imposible & Picudo Jr. b Ángel Del Amor & Mr. Magia (2013)
Mr. Magia is said to be making his debut, so not the one from last year.
3) Centvrión, Dinamic Black, Golden Magic b Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro [super libre]
Centvrion hurt his knee in the second fall to a hospital. 911 pulled Dinamic’s mask again, but Dinamic rolled him up anyway for the win. Dinamic wants a shot at 911’s Rey del Ring.
4) Decnnis, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Scorpio Jr. b Chico Che, Pantera, Veneno
Guapito fouled Veneno and Scorpio pinned him for the win.
5) Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan Jr. b Eterno, Súper Nova, X-Fly [IWRG IC TRIOS]
Piratas took 1/3, when Super Nova twice hit Eterno with dives by mistake. Pirata submitted X-Fly for the win. Piratas’s second defense.

Last Thursday’s show was taped for AYM/LAS. This week’s Thursday show was not taped at all.

AAA quietly has a taping today in Leon. It’s been understandable lost in the TripleMania build up, because it’s a show apparently being taped before AAA’s biggest show of the year to air after. Not much can happen, though a lot of the major people from the TripleMania show will be on this one. Perro & Cibernetico are the exceptions, but all three guys in the heavyweight championship picture and many of those battling for the tag team championship are on this show. The scheduled main event is Chessman, Texano, and Villano IV vs Canek, Mesias and La Parka, which is a much odder set off teams than when this show was first announced. Canek is a rudo on TripleMania teaming with V4 but facing him here. Mesias also may be a rudo by the end of TripleMania. Chessman and Texano are definitely not friends too, but how much AAA of that wants to play out is questionable.

Electroshock & Heavy Metal take on Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. & Silver King in the semimain, with another Secta vs Perros del Mal encounter in the fourth match. Steve Pain makes his AAA TV debut teaming with Carta Brava & Eterno against Angelico, Drago and Jack Evans, and the second match continues the Atomic Boy vs Apache feud in a mixed trios. There’s an opener, but the participants have not been listed (and I’d guess it’s local guys given they’re announcing Eterno in a match.)

The 2nd & the 3rd matches seem like the sort of matches which would air on Fusion, which would make this only a single week of TV for AAA Sin Limite. The problem with that is AAA hasn’t announced any tapings post TripleMania, and would need to be taping next weekend if Leon is going to last only one week. (Maybe TripleMania will air on TV after all?)

Cibernetico, Perro Aguayo Jr., Flamita, Pentagon Jr., Jennifer Blake and others are in Tijuana tonight, part of a The Crash show. Cibernetico and Perro Aguayo have a singles match two days before their hair match, and others are involved in a cruiserweight title tournament.

CMLL’s Arena Mexico show’s main event pushes the perennial Ultimo Guerrero vs Atlantis and La Sombra vs Volador Jr. feuds, with the odd ball combination of Titan and Pierroth rounding out the trios. Many of the guys who’ve made recent hair match challenges are bunched together in the semifiinal, so that should end with even more challenges. Dragon Rojo vs Rey Cometa is the lightning match, back for one week with no En Busca de un Idolo singles matches. That tournament continues with a Negro Casas, Stuka, Valiente vs Virus, Vangelis, Fuego. (I may not be able to record that; this would be a good week to message me when the live stream turns up.) NJPW’s Bushi debuts here in a good looking tercera, but everything is probably going shorter than usual with six trios and one singles match tonight.

R de Rudo, Estrellas del Ring and MedioTiempo have stories about AAA’s annual pilgrimage parade. A lot the same as every year, though it looks like they got COMEX to sponsor it this year. As usual, there’s mystery people in big group picture – who’s the guy in the Tinieblas style mask?

Frequent retiree Vampiro says he’s back full time and signed a five year deal. Riiiiiiiight. I’ve been concerned on Chessman’s behalf for a while about how AAA keeps calling him Vampire Killer and even though I doubt any five year deal in lucha libre, this fits with that concern. I’d recommend Chessman not climb up any tall objects or set up any tables on Sunday.

La Lucha se la Hace, the SLP based lucha show I’ve been posting for the last few months, will now start airing on Mexicanal Sundays at 5pm central. The quality of the webstream has been pretty poor, so this might be much improved if it airs as scheduled. (Which reminds me, the GALLI show never aired on either of the two announced times.)

Rompe Huesos looks back at other TripleMania hair match.

Kcidis has a drawing of Fuerza and Juventud Guerrera for Father’s Day. Fuerza is smiling, which seems totally unlike him unless Octagon is slumped on the ground nearby.

A press release on TripleMania’s iPPV notes 26% of their website traffic comes from other countries.

Sadica wants a title match with LLF champ Angelica.

04/30 AAA TV Results (Chilpancingo)

AAA TV (SAT) 04/30/2011 Plaza de Toros de Chilpancingo, Guerrero [AAAMi Lucha Libre]
1) Mascarita Divina, Mini Charly Manson, OctagoncitoMini Chessman, Mini Histeria, Mini Psicosis
Mascarita Divina pinned Mini Histeria
2) Aerostar, El Elegido, Laredo KidAlan Stone, Decnnis, Súper Fly
Aerostar shooting star press on Alan Stone.
3) Billy el Malo, Cibernético, EscoriaCuervo, Espíritu, Ozz
Escoria took the mystery spot. Black Family bled and lost on a powerbomb from Cibernetico on Ozz. After the match, Cibernetico pointed out he took out Parka’s troops and promised revenge for what Parka did to his motorcycle. (So that’s what Parka did at Cibernetico’s house.)
4) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown DQ Damián 666, Halloween, X-Fly
X-Fly replaced Perro, who ran in with Bestia 666 for the DQ. Perro Jr. demanded a meeting with Dorian Roldan, angry about having to wait for an appointment.
5) El Mesías, Heavy Metal, Nicho el MillionarioChessman, Hijo del Lizmark, LA Park
Lizmark replaced Zorro, who claimed to be hurt. Once again, Park was about to beat Mesias when Zorro got involved. This time, it was Masked Zorro who ran in and caned Park. Park blamed Konnan, Konnan swore he had nothing to do with it. Sociedad is breaking apart.

2011 AAA TV Chart
Projected Air Date (#989)
Mexico: 05/15
US: 05/28

Mi Lucha Libre notes there were five bleeders on this show – Metal, Ozz, Cuervo, Espiritu, Damian – and AAA’s twitter said the Psycho Circus bled too. Also, rudos won 2 of the last 3 and are about to take the third when a rudo attacks a rudo. This was a Kid’s Day show. Eh. Mini Chessman & Laredo Kid were also mentioned as injured.

In an interview with Mi Lucha Libre, Zorro says he will be out 4-6 weeks with a leg injury. I have no idea if that’s a storyline or a legit injury, it’s getting hard to tell with Zorro. AAA’s live recap didn’t mention an injury. Zorro’s TNA deal is brought up here again – that I’m pretty sure is off (and has been since Hernandez got a different partner.)

One day after Perro said he’d definitely be wrestling on this show, Perro did not wrestle on this show. It’s almost like you can’t believe what that man says.

Next taping is 05/13 in Cuautitlan

Edit: I guess this is now fair game now that Dorian is tweeting about it, so might as well put it here: AAA is bringing in TNA guys for TripleMania. They’ll start appearing with the SLP taping. AAA’s done this in past years, and the result has been TNA (and outsiders) having decent->good matches and the fans (and especially the announcers) having no idea who these people are. Starting the involvement before TripleMania will definitely help, but if AAA’s so excited to turn unknowns into stars, maybe they need to work that magic on some guys they already have. The one guy who has definitely gotten over in the past is Jeff Jarrett, and I’d expect for him to be prominently involved. (This is also why it seems unlikely for TripleMania to have the LA Park/Zorro/Mesias match they’re building – got to get a TNA guy in there. Maybe a fourway?)

TNA is running in a Buffalo, NY minor league baseball stadium on the same night as TripleMania. Listed for that show are Hulk Hogan, AJ Styles, Abyss, Eric Young and Beer Money. Christopher Daniels may be available, but that means most of those in last year won’t be back this year. TNA airs on 52MX in Mexico; that’s pre-empted with other programming in the US.


pick you favorite AAA scandal of the day (Octagon, Cibernetico)

1) A report about people arrested for driving while drunk starts off with a big name recently arrested: Octagon. On Sunday, he scored a .54 on the breathalyzer, where .4 is the limit. (I’m sure this is a different measuring units than the US, not sure how to convert.)

2) There’s a profile of Cibernetico on the adultfriend finder.com site, which includes a naked photo and offers of encounters with both women and men. No, that link doesn’t take you there. There are parts where doing the research is not a good idea. Though Cibernetico hasn’t discredited the profile yet, it’s pretty clear it’s up as a joke. And I dunno even know about the picture.

Besides giving Konnan months of new material to work with, I don’t think this affects AAA much. It probably hurts me more, because I can only imagine the comment spam I’m about to receive.

Cibernetico explains the Bizzaros, TripleMania to be on PPV, Perros and AAA talking (thru the media)

(Reforma via Jazzo) Cibernetico explains how he chose the Bizzaros. See, he wanted different people representing different “groups that vie for the streets of Mexico City”, so he could unite them all. We have:
– Emo Xtreme, representing the emos (actually nicknamed “the most depressing at all”)
– Steel, representing the rockers
– Nygma, “representing the gays”
– Punket, representing “the anarchists who believe punk is the only law”

So many questions: does this make Cibernetico the oddest Captain Planet ever? Do you really want an emo guy in your group of fighters? Or a anarchist who’s just going to get you DQed? How can you really represent the streets of Mexico City without least one drug dealer? Am I glad there’s not a lot of real news today so I can lead off with this? Yes, yes I am.

Box Y Luchas has it’s usual weekly massive load of articles.
– A conversation at Many Guzman, head of the wrestlers union in 1991 when they went on strike to protest Friday night Arena Mexico shows airing in Mexico, stopping wrestling for 28 days. The strike ultimately was unsuccessful – the wrestlers divided against each other when they felt the union was targeting CMLL (and asking their wrestlers to sacrifice) while not making the same demands of the el Toreo/LLI group. Guzman blames the failure of the strike on lesser opportunities, lesser pay, and foreigners being brought in to take Mexican jobs. (Guzman says Marco and Alex are good, not so much the rest.) Guzman is 1000% behind Fantasma’s suspension of Konnan and Silver King, since he feels their actions are killing lucha libre. Guzman says there’s occasional talk about reviving the union he led (there are other, company specific ones and small independent ones now), but it seems just like talk.
– AAA says they canceled 66 events due to the flu. That number keeps on gettng bigger. Most are going to be rescheduled, but the Kid’s Days shows probably won’t be. Thrown in on the last line: TripleMania will be a PPV event.
– IWRG resumes running shows today. In the meantime, they’ve been cleaning Arena Naucalpan, including repainting walls. There’s a mention that the lucha classes have just resumed, and they’re being led by El Bombero (Infenral?), Black Terry and Judas el Traidor. I wouldn’t have guessed the last one.
Villano III talks about dealing with an epidemic in Japan.

(now enterting the HMMM section)
Damian 666: “I’ve long said Konnan was one of the strongest and most charismatic in lucha libre.”
Konnan: “Los Perros need to lower their price, AAA is not going to pay what you’re taking from other promotions. AAA’s doors are open to Los Perros and LA Park.”

The Damian article is more him calmly replying to some of Konnan’s remarks (which he repeats in his interview) – they charge what they charge because people will pay it, they’re not worried about not getting enough publicity now, and they want the fighting to be in the ring and not in the press. In tandem, they sure look like they’re negotiating a deal thru the media – not even if they’ll come, but at what price.

Konnan’s article hilarious for the paragraphs spent talking about how great it would be for everyone to be able to work everywhere. There must be two Konnan’s, because I’m pretty sure this can’t be the same guy trying to sign Dr. Wagner to a contract limiting from working anywhere but AAA – that wouldn’t make any sense at all! (You could also read parts of it as “not going to hold any grudges towards Cibernetico if he can make me money”.)

Mistico wants it known that his trip to Japan isn’t canceled. It’s just postponed, to an unknown date. Mistico says he’s been spending some down time lately figured out some new moves as well as watching his matches from 2004 to bring back some old moves he may have stopped doing.
Rocky Romero vs Alex Koslov is the best match of the year, according to Rocky and Alex (and the rest of AAA, who all said it was awesome, but that’s not as funny.) Alex says it got edited a bit on TV, but he thinks it was the best match he’s ever had with Rocky and hopes to do it again. They note that, unlike with some of the other units facing off in the cruiserweight tournament, there was no post-match issues between the partners, though Alex says this is probably because he won – Rocky is tranquil, but Koslov would’ve been angry if he lost.
Fuerza and Juiv talk about Los Bravos, though at this point they hadn’t figured out Dr. Cerebro would be the third member of the trio (or at least that’s how it seems to have turned out.)
Muerte Bucanero shows off paper work showing he’s legally cleared to use that name by the commission, because both Pirata Morgan and Rey Bucanero had thought he was just borrowing parts of their name.
Yoko Ono, luchadora. Not the one from the Beatles.

Pierroth’s daughter is posting messages on message boards soliciting donations.

AAA looks back at the history of the AAA Mega championship, TripleMania XIV, TripleMania XV, and Antonio Pena in the Wrestling Observer Hall of Fame. Wait, what did I just type?

04/21: Latin, Electroshock, Cibernetico

CMLL (TUE) 04/21 Arena Mexico
1) Rayo Tapatio I & Rayo Tapatio II vs Apocalipsis & Semental
2) Caligula, Messala, Polvora vs Angel Azteca Jr., Angel de Oro, Angel de Plata
3) Bam Bam, Mascarita Dorada, Shockercito vs Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Warrior
4) HIjo del Fantasma, Sagrado, Valiente vs Black Warrior, Lizmark Jr., Misterioso II
5) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto vs La Mascara, Mistico, Volador Jr.

Previews: Ovaciones, ESTO – hype is around another matchup of Averno & Mistico, which reminds me how funny it was to hear the announcers talk about Negro Casas being Mistico’s biggest rival. Mistico has a lot of biggest rivals.

AAA says Latin Lover is scheduled to appear at tonight’s AAA taping. I was starting to wonder who Latin would be parodying, but it occurs to me that maybe the parody will be of Latin Lover.

Electroshock talks about the Lucha Libre Expo, his career, his time outside of AAA (“I was wrong, I needed help, therapy”), and haters on the internet.

(Reforma viz Jazzo) Cibernetico talks about making peace with the Perros, but also calls them all babies. I don’t think that’s going to work. The whole back and forth still seems like an angle being worked thru the press rather than Cibernetico leaving the promotion.

Kcidis illustrates Dos Caras Jr., the applause seeking rudo. Maybe CMLL thought they needed a new Wagner?

Hablando de Catch, which confused me this morning with it’s new template, takes photos of lucha merchandise outside of arenas and a preview of a series of CMLL books on the history of lucha libre. That should be good.

The Las Vegas Sun had lots of fun at Sundy’s show with Super Crazy & Super Parka and took some pictures.

Paraiso de la Lucha Libre has photos of a sparely attended benefit shot for Ricky Ricon.

Box Y Lucha #2919 has Mistico’s hand print (slow week?). Inside, Alebrije, Cuije, Nygma and Angel all talk about leaving AAA. (Is it time for a new list?) Also, It reads like Valiente was asked to lose weight if he’s going to get pushed. He’s has dropped a bunch of weight. Box Y Lucha also has an article full of Luchadores Versus Animals, with pictures.

Luchas 2000 #467 has a similar assemblage of headlines.

03/22: IWRG, Toreo, Mistico, Wagner, Juvi, Dos Leyenda, lineups

IWRG (SAT) 03/14 Arena Xochimilco [SuperLuchas #307]
1) Mixteco Jr. b Goleador
2) Galactik & Miss Gaviota b Avisman & Vampiro Metalico
3) Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro b Multifacetico, Trauma I, Trauma II
4) Solar I, Super Astro, Ultraman Jr. DQ Arlequin, Hijo de Pierroth (IWRG), Pierroth II
5) Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. b Scorpio Jr. [Rey del Ring]

New champ. Scorpio had MA2K Jr. done in a half crab, but both he and the refree were distracted by Hijo de Pierroth (Mascara’s second) beating up Multifacetico (Scorpio’s second) on the outside. Scropio let go, Mascara snuck in a foul and pinned him for the win. DQ in the semimain was for Pierroth II yanking Solar’s mask.

El Toreo (WED) 03/18 Arena Lopez Mateos [SuperLuchas #307]
1) Sombra Escarlata & Spider Boy b Mr. Flama & Sol de Oriente
2) Azabache Negro, Rey Cobra, Sismo b Black Man II, Falcon, Flecha (Skayde)
3) Romano Garcia b Danny Boy [hair]
4) Robin Hood Jr. & Super Panda b Epitafio & Terry 2000
5) Canek b Cibernetico [#1 Contenders, UWA HEAVY]
6) Dos Caras Sr., Killer Jr., Sicodelico Sr. DQ Villano III, Villano IV, Villano V

Mil was supposed to be in the main event, but was angry about something – I think the article says about not being in the main event, which doens’t make sense – and walked out of the building before his match (walking in front of the crowd to make sure they knew he showed.) Doesn’t look like this bit is drawing sell outs any more, at least not this night. Villano V yanked Dos’ mask for a DQ.

It took Cibernetico being accidentally hit by his second (Killer Jr.) and being fouled by Canek for him to lose here. That’s actually not as much as I’d thought.

Again, fighting between the seconds (Robin Hood Jr. and Rocky Santana) allowed Romano to sneak in a piledriver on Danny Boy for the win.

SuperLuchas #307 also has a big interview with Mistico. Besides the usual “I’d like to face whoever win the mask match” bit, Mistico also notes that when he was in Japan and CMLL did a Sombra/Volador vs Averno/Mephisto tag title match, it was a poor house. Mistico wants more people to be stars, but feels he should get more credit for how much he means and how hard he works. Mistico feels like he’s winning the crowd back little by little this year (though that didn’t seem to be case Friday night.) This interview is totally worth going out of you way to read for yourself.

IWRG (THU) 03/19 Arena Naucalpan
5) Dr. Wagner Jr., Fuerza Guerrera, Zatura b Hijo de Pierroth (IWRG), Mascara ANo 2000 Jr., Oficial 911

Give him credit – Dr. Wagner indeed made this show. The usual trend for guys who join one of the big 2 is to promise they’ll still be doing all their independent bookings when the press is there, and then quickly bail on them. (Silver King and Super Porky come to mind.) Lots of respect for Wagner if he’s breaking that tend.

Coincidentally, Wagnermania has Wagner cutting a promo on website commenters critical of him joining AAA. Dr. Wagner Jr. is a YouTube shooter, which can only mean the world is coming to an end. The Gladiatores have their own interview with Dr. Wagner about current effects.

Didn’t occur to me last night, but there was no Wagner angle on Friday’s AAA taping despite one being obviously set up in Madero. AAA is now listing Wagner’s self promoted shows, which are now using AAA talent.

The other news not exactly mentioned on luchalibreaaa.com is a backstage incident with Juvi, at least if you’re willing to believe his story in Record. “The leader of the Mexican Powers” (that’s what the article says) tells Record that he went out for his match, and came back to find his bag filled with human waste. Juvi went to Jack Evans to accuse him of doing it, when Konnan attacked him and Jack joined in. Juvi claims he’s got a broken nose, and bruises on his face and body.

This is surely the same story Lizzy Valentine is referring to on her mySpace page when talking about leaving AAA. This is also all Juvi’s side of the story, and his history of telling tall tales makes it really hard to take anything he says at face value – there’s definitely more going on here. (FWIW, Jack was in Juvi’s match, and still in the ring when Juvi escaped the cage, so Juvi really could really stand to improve his sleuthing abilities.)

However, the general public (and the press) are probably going to be unaware of Juvi’s history and this story looks really bad for AAA if it gets picked up in more places. It really depends on how far the story gets, but it’s tough to spin the leader of the wrestlers taking part in a two on one mugging and there’s probably some public punishment coming if this gets taken seriously. Also, whomever gave to okay to hire Juvi back inside the company (not Konnan!) is probably not too thrilled with it going so bad so quick.

Short term, Juvi’s done in AAA. I’d assume Ultimo Gladiador takes his spot in the cruiserweight tournament. Ultimo Gladiador seems to be a good dude, but no one’s been as quite as fortunate with absences as he has in AAA – he got started their with Crazy Boy’s injury and has gotten to hang around and better spots because of Juvi’s flakiness (and Super Crazy not coming in.)

Dos Leyenda follow up stories:

Villano V says he never even considered he was going to lose, and was hoping to main event a third straight anniversary show. He vows to continue fighting.

Ultimo Guerrero wants Villano IV to finish the Villanos off. UG credits Blue Panther with coming up with the idea to use the toque universal to pin Villano in the end, and goes as far as dedicating the win to Panther.

– ESPNDeportes restates the point that Villano IV is and will be the last masked Villano standing; they’ve told their sons to create their identities and not take their names (just as they did with their father Ray Mendoza), so there’ll be no Villano VI coming.

– Televisa Deportes picture comes along with tons of pictures

– I was wrong – Accion indeed has video of this match tonight. If ever one needed to understand the difference between the two promotions, this was a good two minutes for you – CMLL had a huge match decided by an abdominal stretch cradle, and this was followed by Chessman/Mesias in a cage using light tubes, and walking above the cage on barbed wire cords. Are they really both promoting the same lucha libre?

Box Y Lucha posted a truck load of articles Friday morning, none of which I saw until much later because Google Reader decided not to show new articles in half my feeds. (I think I fixed it, but who knows. As always, if I miss something worth reading, let me know.) There’s so many of them, I’m not going to write as much about them, but that doesn’t mean they’re not interesting.

They’ve got La Parka Jr. telling LA Park to get over it already and complaining about not being nominated for the the Televisa luchador award (he thought the idea was for the nominees to just be Mexican)

Dos Caras Jr. explaining his teased rudo turn was resolved off camera (everyone’s friends again, hooray), Axel talking the end of his CMLL sting much like in his SuperLuchas interview, Dark Angel talking about her trip to Japan (and not TNA, yet), Star Fire talking about her short career so far (totally wins me over in one interview, I’m a sucker), Sombrita and Mascara Dorada talking about the Puebla cage match, and Juanito Diaz, lightweight champion of the 60s. There’s also columns on Solar/Negro Navarro, Villano III on backstage fights (how timely!) and history pieces on Angel Azteca. Plus, a couple look back at Ultimo Guerrero‘s career, as if teasing a major change this past Friday.

An editoral in El Siglo de Torreon complains about the quality of libre referring. For some odd reason, they don’t think referee Viruta getting caught in the moment and doing a top rope plancha onto the wrestlers shows much impartiality.

LuchaWorld has Robert on the 12/08-9 and 12/15-16 CMLL MVS Shows, as well as KrisZ‘s news update.

3) Fantastik, Freelance, Turbo vs Black Terry, BLack Thunder, Capitan Muerte
4) Head Hunter I, Head Hunter II, Veneno vs Arlequin, Hijo de Pierroth (IWRG), Pierroth II
5) Fuerza Guerrera vs Oficial 911 [IWRG IC WELTER]

911 lost, will get a title shot. OKAY. Turbo and Black Thunder appear to have become regulars here (as much as anyone who’s not a core guy is a regular.)

IWRG (SAT) 03/28 Arena Xochimilco
1) Garra de Aguila vs Comando Negro
2) Eragon & Latin Brother vs Carta Brava Jr. & Vampiro Metalico
3) Mascarita Sagrada & Octagoncito I vs Espectrito de Ultratumba & Piratita Morgan
4) Negro Navarro, Trauma I, Trauma II vs Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro
5) Dr. Wagner Jr. & Universo 2000 vs Hijo de Pierroth (IWRG) & Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. [relevos sucidas]
6) ? vs ?? [mask]

Actually, I’m taking a leap and assuming they’re doing the final on this show, but the tag match is solicated as a relevos suicidas. Pretty clear favorite to lose of the four.

CMLL (SUN) 03/29 Arena Coliseo
1) Rayo Tapatio I & Rayo Tapatio II vs Cholo & Zayco
2) Dark Angel, Marcela, Sahori vs Amapola, Princesa Sujei, Rosa Negra
3) Hijo del Fantasma, Mictlan, Sagrado vs Ephesto, Lizmark Jr., Terrible
4) Blue Panther, Dos Caras Jr., Mistico vs Heavy Metal, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas

Been racking my brain all day, trying to figure out what the bonus match is. There’s no feud that I can think of – the show two weeks ago has little to do wtih the today’s show (thanks to all the subs.) One of Bam Bam, Pierrothito, Sombra or Sangre Azteca is probably defending their title here, if it’s at all being set up tonight. Feels like it could just be a typo.

CHOLO! Getting worried about him for a bit. Speaking of MIA guys, anyone seen Mascara Purpura lately? No matches in the last month, since the lightning match in Puebla.

CMLL (SUN) 03/29 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Katana & Malefico vs Angel del Mal & Infierno [Torneo Tanque Dantes]
2) Palacio Negro & Samurai vs Leon Blanco & Thunder Boy [Torneo Tanque Dantes]
3) Boomerang & Gallo vs Acertijo & Mr. Trueno [Torneo Tanque Dantes]
4) Maximo, Sagrado, Valiente vs Black Warrior, Dragon Rojo Jr., Sangre Azteca
5) a replacement for Toscano, Hector Garza, Shocker vs Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Ultimo Guerrero

Toscano’s booked like normal this week, but can’t make any of those shows. Warrior continues to work in GDL. That’s round 4 of the torneo, and I’m sure I’ll do a breakdown of the tournament later (so you know there’s a post coming to skip.)

03/06: Cibernetico, Monterrey, IWRG

The big lucha story out of this past week’s Wrestling Observer is the ever changing status of Cibernetico. As everyone figured, he was the planned mystery partner for Charly Manson at Rey de Reyes and was actually supposed to come back this past weekend as the mystery partner at the Cuernavaca show (which also helps explain the Vampiro non-wrestling bit. This is all past tense, because Cibernetico decided to hold up AAA for a pay raise on his return. (If nothing else, Cibernetico has some guts.) AAA realized their business was still doing fine with Cibernetico, and everyone was happier in the locker room without Cibernetico and decided to turn Cibernetico down. There’s still plenty of time for things to change for Rey de Reyes but AAA’s probably already made alternate plans.

AAA (SUN) 03/01 Arena Coliseo Monterrey [RFC]
1) Guerrero Blanco & Invasor b Diabolik & Thunder Brother
2) Fabi Apache & Mari Apache b Cinthia Moreno & Tiffany
3) La Momia & Virtual X b Ejecutor & Mr. Secuestro [AAA NORTH TAG]
4) Histeria & Monje Negro Jr. b Aguila Extrema & TDN
5) Pirata Morgan & Silver King b Alan Stone & Pimpinela Escarlata

Champs retain.

IWRG (THU) 03/05 Arena Naucalpan [Al Filo del Ring]
3) Solar I, Super Astro, Ultraman Jr. b Pierroth II, Tetsuya Bushi, Toxico DF
4) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro b Emilio Charles Jr., Fuerza Guerrera, Scorpio Jr.

Main event is kinda of an upset. For all the Oficial wins, they don’t usually get to beat the top older national guys, and Emilio beating knocked out during the match helped here. Challenges all around after the main event.

Today’s Arena Mexico preview: Ovaciones, ESTO – just killing time until the 20th, with half the roster over in Puebla for that show. Weird we have Blue Panther and Atlantis teaming and no one really notices.

Hablando de Catch has photos of Solar vs Negro Navarro from Arena Coliseo

Box Y Lucha Articles
Gato Eveready on his first year in AAA. They give his start as February 10, though the gimmick actually started on 11/19/07 and the current guy under the mask probably didn’t get started until June 1st. Anyway, Gato talks about wrestling for 10 years and having no idea what the actual agreement between AAA and Eveready is and how long it lasts.
– Box Y Lucha talks to Queretaro promoter Carlos Maynes about El Rey losing his mask, since Martha Villalobos was angry with someone else using a name one of her wrestlers was using. The article really doesn’t get around to that issue, with Maynes just pointing out Mr. Mexico had been unmasked for 9 years and so was allowed to remask. (Maynes quotes the rule as an unmasked wrestler must stay that way for 1 year – the rulebooks I’ve seen have that for a longer period, but Mr. Mexico would still be okay.)
Mr. Niebla explains his car accident – he hit one car, swerved out of control, and crashed into a bus. Car’s totaled. Niebla seems pretty upbeat about it.
Wagner says he’s not locking into any company, still, and teases a mask match with Park later this year. It’s going to be a long year.
LA Park says the battle for the La Parka name/look is still in the courts and he may win yet, so that’s why he’s going back to the old suit on the independents. I believe either he’s only prohibited from using the old look on TV, or AAA only cares enough to enforce it in those situations, so he’s free to wear what he wants outside of CMLL and that’s where he is right now. LA Park accuses AAA of fixing the Televisa voting buying votes so La Parka Jr. could win in past years. They’re click polls, it’s not even that hard to manipulate.

Universal has an interview with Terror Negro, Sobredosis, and Skullman, who are running Arena Emiliano Zapata under the IWG name. What does IWG stand for? “Indy Wrestling Group”. They’ve been running a tournament for a light heavyweight title of late with AAA guys on top. There’s a short article about this on Ovaciones, and I know El Pancracio covers that building, but I forgot to check their site for new editions.

LuchandoLibre’s recap of AAA’s taping has a bloody picture of Roldan, who must’ve gotten quite the beating to end that show. They also preview the EAW show.

The Queremos machos no mamadas, a documentary on luchadors focusing on CMLL wrestlers (and maybe filmed last year based on the names) sounds really good. It aired in Puebla on Monday as part of the festive there. I think they may have to change the name (or at least the English translation) if it ever made it to the US.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update, and Robert on ACM from 03/30/03 and 03/11/07.

12/22 (2): Santo, Sombra, Box Y Lucha, Mistico, Cibernetico, Laredo Kid, Lady Rabbit, lineup

El Hijo del Santo did an autograph signing at his cafe/souvenir shop, and there was a big turnout.

Kid Azteca was the winner of the fifth annual Gomez Palacio Luchador 5K race. Kid Azteca was the fastest and took the 80 kg and under division, with Nieto del Hungaro & Cabllero Halcon Jr in 2nd and 3rd. Super Leopardo took the 80-100 kg division, ahead of his brother Super Star. In the over 100 kg class, Psycho I and Psycho II finished that order. La Sombra won the first three years of this race, but is a bit busy now. Also yesterday, Blue Panther recieved his plaque for being a Distguised Citzen from this same city.

Going back to Sombra for a second – I noted a while back Sombra’s mask reminded me of Oro’s. They have similar styles, and they both won an NWA title at a very young age. El Universal talks to Sombra about the comparisons, and reveals the reason for his name. When Brillante came to Mexico City to train, noting his gear and style was similar, like Brillante was Oro’s spirit or Oro’s shadow. Brillante liked the idea of being called “Sombra”, so it stuck.

And now the Box Y Lucha massive link dump! I really like the new design, though I wish they still had all the old covers up. And I need to mess with Yahoo Pipes to get a master RSS feed at some point.

Mistico blames his tag team title loss on Hector Garza’s knee; Mistico says Garza came from knee surgery and wasn’t 100% percent. (Which would also explain where Garza’s been lately, though you’d think he’d have the knee surgery after the last big match rather than right before it.) Don’t look for a rematch, as Mistico says he doesn’t trust Garza because he’s still an ex-Perro. Mistico notes he successfully defended his CMLL World Welterweight Title over Negro Casas next week which proves that, in lucha libre, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. Mistico also says whomever said he was complaining about working too much was lying, he’s fine with CMLL’s schedule for him. (Who DID say that? I can not recall.)

Terrible has no recollection of any foul that won him the Leyenda de Azul. “To the all the fans who booed me because they believe there was a foul, I only tell you that you need to learn to lose!” Fair enough!

– This interview with Dragon Rojo Jr. from after he won the #1 contenders Cibernetico two Tuesdays ago is a little outdated in newsworthyness, but it gives you a really good look at Rojo’s altered mask design. It works it a Diamante Negro logo in the forehead and the side flames are now smaller and angled more towards the back.

– In an interview from Guerra de Titanes, Charly Manson said he planned to debut on the first TV taping of January, but Chessman jumping him has made that impossible. There are other AAA interviews from this period with not enough new info worth linking to, but a common theme is everyone being asked about Cibernetico, and everyone being positive about him. It’s very professional.

– Contrast: From back on the Perros del Mal debut press conference, Cibernetico calls Konnan and Vampiro cancers, and I can’t recall if I’ve seen that quote before. From Cibernetico, I mean, I’m pretty sure it’s been in the comments. Cibernetico also says, since there’s now 20-30 foreign wrestlers around, someone should start a company of foreign wrestlers, and hopefully have them leave AAA.

Laredo Kid explains his second leg injury was really his first leg injury. A doctor screwed up, fissures were not sealed right, and it fell back apart in the cage match. Laredo Kid has learned bad doctors are bad, you’ve got to have a backup career because thing can fall apart at any time. He’s planning to go back to school next year. Not a bad idea.

Sahori talks about her name, her career in AAA. She’s been trained by Gran Apache, Abismo Negro and Ultimo Guerrero. Henrik can finish this paragraph.

Lady Rabbit says she’s the only women wrestler employed by IWRG. Going to be tough for her to have matches. When Martha and Rossy said they were bringing their group of women to IWRG, Lady Rabbit joined IWRG on her own and now Martha and Rossy’s group is MIA so Lady Rabbit has no opponents. But she’s still trying and waiting for opponents. It appears her husband is an IWRG wrestler, but they don’t directly say it, and that would explain why she’s hanging around to wait. Lady Rabbit says she was Lady Discovery – I thought that was someone else? Anyway, the point is, I can now sleep at night knowing what happened to Lady Rabbit.

– Two articles about DTU wrestlers but serious now, this is long enough.

Box Y Lucha #2902, the actual magazine, has Cibernetico and Wagner on the cover. Some of the teased stories include Sangre Azteca thinking about teaming with Dragon Rojo and Pegasso and Rey Cometa noting how much tougher the fans and opponents are in CMLL.

RFC says a Monterrey promoter is planning on bringing TNA to Arena Monterrey in April 2009. (This is what they call ‘burying the lede’.) I think we’ve been here before (but at least they have some TV now.) RFC also posted his 2008 awards, with Caifan 69 as the wrestler of the year. Mesias as the best foreginer of the year surprises me a little.


AAA (TUE) 12/23 Auditorio Municipal de San Juan, Los Lagos
1) Fabi Apache, Gato Eveready, Mari Apache vs El Padrino, La Diabólica, Sexy Star
2) Crazy Boy & Ultimo Gladiador vs Hijo de Pirata Morgan & Pirata Morgan
3) Alan Stone & Gronda II vs Chessman & Zorro

El Padrino is working with Gato Eveready? Seems odd.

AAA (THU) 12/25 Arena San Juan Pantitlan [luchalibreaaa]
1) Aerostar, Dizzy, Fabi Apache, Mascarita Divina vs ?, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Mari Apache, Mini Charly Manson
2) Charly Manson, Crazy Boy, Super Porky vs ?, El Brazo, Electro Shock

Charly can’t possibly be wrestling here.

indy (THU) 12/25 Unidad Deportiva Luis Donaldo Colosio
1) Caballero X vs Payaso Loco
2) Dancy Boy & Kenji vs Aero Mouse & Kintaro
3) Halconcito Galactico & Lunathor vs Kid Star & Zafarrancho
4) Camaleon de Oro, Protector, Shrek vs Felino, Puma King, Tiger Kid
5) Angeluz, Fray Tormenta, Sagrado vs Infierno, Rostro Infernal, Satánico

I guess we know one of Fray Tormenta’s disciples is still on good terms with him! That’s a very literal good vs evil main event; we just needed some dogs to face all those semimain cats. Don’t like the devil’s chances on Christmas Day.

indy (THU) 12/25 Arena Olimpico Laguna de Gomez Palacio [El Siglo de Torreon]
1) Pentagoncito vs Mini Maximo
2) Guerrero Inca vs Semental
3) Angel de Oro, Hooligan, Scriba Jr. vs Euforia, Misterioso II, Mr. Guerrero
4) Blue Panther, Stuka Jr., Ultimo Guerrero vs Atlantis, Dragon Rojo Jr., Ephesto

So, UG is working as a hometown tecnico, but Dragon Rojo and Ephesto are not? Don’t try and make sense of it, kdb!

AAA (THU) 12/25 Auditorio de Tijuana [aereo_suicida @ SML]
1) Human Tornado vs Puma
2) Black Abyss, Histeria, Psicosis II vs Arandu, Extreme Tiger, TJ Boy
3) Joe Lider & Nicho el Millionario vs Jack Evans & Teddy Hart [AAA TAG]
4) Alex Koslov, Rocky Romero, X-Pac vs Chuck Palumbo, Konnan, Rellik

This is in fact a real card, not some apparition from a nightmare. My guess is this is a tryout for Palumbo and not a sign he’s coming in full time, but time will tell. I would presume Puma is the TJ Perkins (there’s plenty of lucha guys running around with that name too, but not all of the face other PWG guys.) Psicosis II is usually the promoter for these shows, but obviously I didn’t realize his connections to SoCal talent.

Deep thought of the day: are Jack & Teddy actually Mexican? are Nicho & Lider actually foreigners? I need to expand on this, but I needed to eat lunch and I didn’t do that either.

If that looks like a lot of Christmas shows, that’s the tip. I’m counting 10 listed shows so far, including five with AAA main events.

CMLL (SUN) 12/28 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Poseidon vs Milenio
2) Palacio Negro & Plata vs Thunder Boy & Virgo
3) Idolo & Nube Roja vs Depreadador (GDL) & Exterminador (GDL)
4) Infierno, Malefico, Máscara Mágica vs Mr. Trueno, Rey Trueno, Satánico
5) Hijo del Fantasma, La Máscara, Shocker vs Atlantis, Negro Casas, Último Guerrero

Hmm, trios champs vs the last

12/22 (1): Puebla, Monterrey, Coliseo, IWRG, bye bye Ciber

I’m splitting this right down the middle for sanity sake. (And so I can take a 15 minute break before typing up lineups.)

CMLL (MON) 12/15 Arena Puebla [eric0891 @ el martinete]
1) Centella de Oro & Legionario b Karisma & Sauron
2) Asturiano, Hijo del Faraon, Pegasso Xtreme b Policeman, Semental, Toro Bill Jr.
3) Mascarita Dorada, Pequeño Olímpico, Último Dragoncito b Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito
4) Blue Panther, Mictlán, Valiente b Black Warrior, Dragon Rojo Jr., Sangre Azteca
5) Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero b Dos Caras Jr., Marco Corelone, Shocker

and that’s how we get to today’s title match, of course.

CMLL (THU) 12/18 Arena Monterrey [RFC]
1) Angel Dorado Jr., Mascara Dorada, Máscara Púrpura b Arkangel de la Muerte, Dragon Rojo Jr., Virus
2) Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero, Terrible b La Mascara, Mark Corleone, Maximo
3) Diluvio Negro II L Blue Panther and Tiger Universitario [hair]
4) La Sombra, Mr. Niebla, Valiente b Difunto II, Diluvio Negro I, Último Guerrero [semifinal]
5) Averno, Misterioso II, Volador Jr. b Místico, Rey Hechicero, Sangre Azteca [semifinal]
6) Último Guerrero b Difunto II [mask]

Let me see if I get this all right (thanks KrisZ)

Main event 12 man mask match took the form of a battle royale to determine four trios teams, with the person who took the pin moving on to a mask match. (No captains, I guess.) That was UG in the first match and Rey Hechicero in the second. However, Rey Hechicero suffered a knee injury (attributed to Misterioso.) I believe what happened is they had a quickie battle royale with the four guys left, with Difunto getting beat by Mistico and dumped into the mask match. Which he lost. No name listed.

Blue Panther took Diluvio Negro II’s hair.

La Mascara and local Angel Dorado Jr. ended up taking Hector Garza and Dos Caras Jr.’s spots. As I’ll get to later, Hector probably had had knee surgery, causing the recent disappearing act. Would it hurt CMLL to actually announce this sort of thing?

CMLL (SUN) 12/21 Arena Coliseo [Ovaciones]
1) Hijo del Faraon & Pegasso b Camorra & Semental
2) Fabián el Gitano, Leono, Tony Rivera b Arkangel de la Muerte, Dr. X, Loco Max
3) Mascarita Dorada, Nino de Acero, Shockercito b Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito
4) Mascara Dorada, Máximo, Sagrado DQ Dragon Rojo Jr., Sangre Azteca, Skandalo
5) Mephisto, Terrible, Texano Jr. b Marco Corleone, Shocker, Toscano

By everyone’s estimation, Dorada, Pierrothito and the minis stole the show. Focus was on Dorada vs Pierrothito, with Dorada picking up the pin (though it may be disputed.) Dorada wants a shot at the Lightweight Title, Pierrothito wants a mask match (ha! you know, I think they could main event with that…) but they’re getting a trios rematch next week. Considering how long it took for Nosferatu and Infernal to get their rematch, we’ll get a title rematch for this one in March.

Terrible replaced Ephesto, which worked because they seem to be doing a program with him and Marco off Leyenda de Azul. here, Terrible got the pin after grabbing the ropes.

DQ in the semimain was for Dragon Rojo fouling Maximo. Which isn’t very tecnico. Skandalo replaced Black Warrior. Pegasso may be lower than Super Fly is in AAA, but he’s winning.

IWRG (SUN) 12/21 Arena Naucalpan [Ovaciones]
4) Hijo del Cien Caras & Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. DQ Head Hunter I & Veneno
5) Arlequin L Oficial 911, Scorpio Jr., Fuerza Guerrera, Tetsuya, Cerebro Negro, Pierroth II, Zumbido, Máscara Año 2000, Multifacético [cage, hair]

Arlequin lost his mask and his hair within 2 months. Indy lucha libre, ain’t it special. 911 gets credit for the win. DQ in the semimain was referee violence, I believe.

CMLL (SUN) 12/21 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [mt 1, MT 2]
4) Mr. Trueno, Rey Trueno, Satánico b Casanova, Gallo, Neutrón
5) Dos Caras Jr., La Máscara, Volador Jr. b Averno, Felino, Negro Casas
6) Místico b Mr. Niebla

Not totally sure of the result of the fourth match. Post match, Gallo again challenged Satanico to a mask vs hair match, and Satanico warned him to be careful what he asked for. That (non-mask/hair) singles match is scheduled for tomorrow and Gallo is so getting pwned. Clean wins in the top two matches.

In other news from the building, they’ll now be following the Mexico City Tuesday/Sunday pattern of really cheap tickets the first Sunday of every month, starting on 01/04. Children tickets are 10 pesos anywhere, adults are 30 pesos in some of the seating. June will be the 50th anniversary celebration for this arena, so maybe another big show will take place then.

AAA (SUN) 12/21 Salon Sagitario [AAA]
1) Fabi Apache & Mari Apache b Cinthia Moreno & Sexy Star
2) Alan Stone & El Elegido b Escoria & Mesias
3) Cibernetico & La Parka Jr. b Konnan & Zorro

AAA’s site bills this as Cibernetico’s farewell. He’s not on the lineups for this week (so far!) AAA never writes about spot shows, make of it what you will.

They said the show had a good turnout, and it looks that way from pictures elsewhere. Mesias and Sexy Star didn’t get along with their partners.
