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.

Local luchadors were honored in Arena Coliseo Mexicali.

Dragon Rojo keeps his other title, Angel turns devil, Traumas suffer trauma before cage match, Wagner & Tiger rumors

photo by Black Terry

CMLL (SUN) 10/28/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [El Occidental (5), El Occidental (6)]
5) Puma King & Tiger DQ Guerrero Maya Jr. & Rey Cometa
Rudos took the first, tecnicos took the second. In the third, Tiger beat Maya, Cometa beat Tiger, and Puma faked a foul to get the win.
6) Dragón Rojo Jr. b Hijo del Fantasma [NWA MIDDLE]
Rojo took 1/3, the last with a small package, to keep his title.

Semimain sets up a singles match next week.

IWRG (SUN) 10/28/2012 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), The Gladiatores]
1) Epidemia & Matrix Jr. b Araña de Plata & Seiya
straight falls. Seiya’s debut here.
2) Cristal & La Sádica b Amazona & Ludark Shaitan
Cristal’s debut here, and Ludark’s first match since 2010.
3) Bestia 666, Oficial 911, Oficial Fierro b el Ángel, Relampago, Trauma II
Ruods took 1/3 where Angel shockingly turned on Trauma II. Angel explained he was tired of the Traumas and would be going rudo to oppose them.
4) Factor, Rayan, Spartan b Alan Extreme, Carta Brava Jr., Hijo de Pirata Morgan
Alan Extreme replaced Zumbido. Factor and Pirata feuded. Comando Elite took 1/3, Factor submitted Pirata. Money thrown in the ring.
5) Negro Navarro & Trauma I b Cien Caras Jr. & Hijo de Máscara Año 2000 [IWRG IC TAG]
Navarros came in as champions. Dinamitas went after Trauma I’s right knee, so much so that they were DQed in the first fall for excessive violence. The doctor told Trauma I he probably should sit the rest of this one out, but Trauma I continued. Dinamitas beat him in fall two, but Negro first submitted Mascara and then Cien to keep the titles in straight falls.

Both the Traumas are hurt going into the cage match, and Hijo de Pirata Morgan is not in good shape either. Angel’s random rudo turn does not bode well for his short term future…

There are rumors about Dr. Wagner Jr. and Extreme Tiger leaving AAA. I’m not sure where the Tiger one exactly comes from (these two tweets seem are the first I’ve seen it mentioned, though most of this type of stuff usually is passed around Facebook first.) Tiger leaving AAA would be very nonsensical. He has been stuck in the same place forever and would understandably be wanting a bigger opportunities, but there are really no big ones on the indies right nowThere’s definitely not a lot to the Wagner one. It’s a Luchas 2000 interview with Karlo Colin (always an iffy sign) where he just says he’s open to all possibilities, including leaving AAA.

On his MLW Radio podcast, Konnan mentioned Teddy Hart is suspended for his recent no-show in Monterrey. Konnan also said Teddy will have a documentary crew following him in AAA some point soon.

Rey Escorpion was honored at the CMLL show in Sonora.


CMLL (SUN) 11/04/2012 Arena Coliseo
1) Bengala & Camaleón vs Herodes Jr. & Ramstein
2) Hombre Bala Jr., Magnus, Super Halcon Jr. vs Disturbio, Hijo del Signo, Zayco
3) Fuego, Stuka Jr., Triton vs Namajague, Shigeo Okumura, Vangelis
4) Diamante vs Misterioso Jr. [lightning]
5) Blue Panther, Hijo del Fantasma, Máscara Dorada vs Kráneo, Pólvora, Psicosisse
6) Diamante Azul, La Sombra, Shocker vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Tama Tonga, Volador Jr.

Another show with just random matches that could be on ay show.

Misterioso has no luck with Diamante Azul in a lightning match, will try the lesser version this time.

CMLL (SUN) 11/04/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Brillante & Javier Cruz vs Demonio Rojo & Relampago Azul
2) Black Metal, Eros, Halcón de Plata vs Demonio Maya, Espectrum, Infierno
3) Leo vs In Memoriam [lightning]
4) Rey Cometa vs Puma King
5) Atlantis, Rush, Smaker vs Euforia, Ráfaga, Terrible

Cometa vs Puma is a good match. Rafaga and Smaker get to be part of the main event with everyone else moving down.

Hijo de Pirata Morgan wins IWRG Junior championship, Hector Garza in Monterrey, Mexicools vs MexiPowers

IWRG (SUN) 10/21/2012 Arena Naucalpan [IWRG]
1) Epidemia & Matrix Jr. b Astro Rey Jr. & Dragón Celestial
straight falls
2) Alan Extreme, Carta Brava Jr., Comando Negro b Dinamic Black, Golden Magic, Saruman
Money throw in the ring. Alan & Carta trapped Saurman & Dinamic in a star, and Comando Negro dropped Golden Magic on his head with a Comando Storm in the middle. Money thrown in the ring!
3) Eterno, Heddi Karaoui, Violencia Jr. b Relampago, Trauma I, Trauma II
In the opening mat exchange, Trauma II choked Eterno out. Doctors checked on Eterno while Trauma I submitted Violencia and Relampago legdropped Heddi Karaoui on the head, knocking him out. Karaoui was ruled unable to continue and Eterno was semi-conscious, so Violencia was left to fight 1 vs 3 in the third fall. Relampago dived on to Violencia in the second fall, hurting his knee and ending his night. Everyone checked on him, and Eterno & Violencia beat the Traumas. In the third, Trauma II submitted Violencia, Eterno choked out Trauma II, Eterno beat Trauma II with the Eterno Clash for the win.
4) Cien Caras Jr., Scorpio Jr., Zumbido b el Ángel, Negro Navarro, Veneno
Rudos took 1/3. Scorpio & Zumbido are working as a team, but it’s Cien who beat Navarro and asked for a tag title match.
5) Hijo de Pirata Morgan b Hijo de Máscara Año 2000 [#1 Contenders, IWRG JUNIORS]
Single fall. Mascara missed a top rope splash, and Pirata won with Morgan Special.
6) Hijo de Pirata Morgan b Spartan Factor [IWRG JUNIORS]
Spartan Factor (and second Rayan) jumped Pirata (who had Scorpio as his second.) Spartan Factor won fall 1, Pirata stole the second fall, and Rayan accidentally smacked Factor with a chair to set up Pirata’s win. Pirata wins the title back.

This show airs tonight on AYM Sports starting at 9pm.

Hector Garza appeared on the Arena Coliseo Monterrey show (video in the link), talking about his health condition. Perro Aguayo Jr. interrupted, demanding Garza recover so Perro could take Garza’s hair in Monterrey.


IWRG (THU) 10/25/2012 Arena Naucalpan
1) Araña de Plata & Astro Rey Jr. vs Matrix Jr. & Star Boy Jr.
2) Cerebro Negro, La Cobra, Relampago vs Carta Brava Jr., Star Boy, Yack
3) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro vs Factor, Rayan, Spartan
4) el Ángel vs Heddi Karaoui [IWRG IC MIDDLE]
Angel is champion
5) Barba Roja, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan vs Negro Navarro, Trauma I, Trauma II

Title match subject to Karaoui being cleared, though I’d guess he probably will be. The people who typically comment on this site (including me!) are not fans of Karaoui’s wrestling, but the people who he works with and for seem to like it and a title change wouldn’t be a big surprise here.

UWE LEGEND (WED) 10/31/2012 Arena Lopez Mateos
1) Beda, Olimpus, Spider Boy vs Conde Bartok, Magia Negra, Violento
2) Cerebro Maligno, Herejía, Judas el Traidor, Rey Krimen vs Demencia Dorada, Dragosth, Gargola, Golden, Psicópata
3) Big Mama vs Taya Valkyire
4) Epitafio, Leviatham, Samael, Tormento vs Dowki, Hanaoka, Nihon Dragon, Samurai
5) Rocky Santana vs Iron Love [hair]
6) Juventud Guerrera, Psicosis, Super Crazy vs Extreme Tiger, Joe Lider, Último Gladiador
the former Mexicools face the former Mexican Powers

As you may recall, the Mexican Powers were intended to be a redo of the Mexicools in AAA, with Juvi playing Juvi (only better), a fake Super Crazy (Crazy Boy) and a fake Psicosis (Psicosis II). The three guys representing the group here were later injury/defection replacements who got in AAA at least partially due to their connection to Crazy Boy. Psicosis II is probably not available for that main event, but it still calls for some sort of Crazy Boy interference since the DTU Anniversary show is happening here as well.

Not sure if the El Samurai in the fourth is the ex-NJPW guy or a new Japanese guy.

IWRG (THU) 10/25/2012 Arena Naucalpan
1) Araña de Plata & Astro Rey Jr. vs Matrix Jr. & Star Boy Jr.
2) Cerebro Negro, La Cobra, Relampago vs Carta Brava Jr., Star Boy, Yack
3) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro vs Factor, Rayan, Spartan
4) el Ángel vs Heddi Karaoui [IWRG MIDDLE]
Angel is champion
5) Barba Roja, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan vs Negro Navarro, Trauma I, Trauma II

Hijo de Pirata Morgan takes the gold, AULL loses it in Costa Rica

IWRG (SUN) 09/16/2012 Arena Naucalpan [IWRG]
1) Infierno Kid Jr. b Serpiente de Oro
The ever changing rules of IWRG opener are “one fall” for the moment. Easy win for Infierno Kid.
2) Carta Brava Jr., Imposible, Rayan b Centvrión, Dinamic Black, Saruman
Rayan replaced Matrix Jr.
3) Chicano b Cerebro Negro [WWS WELTER]
Chicano came in as champion, with Imposible as his second. Centvrion worked the opposite corner. Both got involved in the third fall. Chicano survived to powerbomb and plancha Cerbero for the win (2/3) Cerebro Negro gave him credit for the clean win.
4) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro b Alan Extreme, Black Terry, Temerario Infernal [EdM Trios]
Oficials came in as champs. Temerarios tookin the first, Oficials took the second. In the third, AK-47 beat Alan Extreme with the Devil’s Wings and Bombero pinned Fierro after a spear. AK-47 took out Bombero with a tope and hurt his knee in the process, leaving 911 and Black Terry alone while the ref checked out the injury. Alan ran back in to hit 911 with a chair, but before Black Terry could cover, Fierrero dropped Terry with a backcracker. 911 crawled on top to keep the titles. Temerarios demanded a rematch.
5) Bestia 666, Damián 666, Eterno b Hijo de LA Park, Negro Navarro, Trauma II
Navarro replaced Fresero Jr. FdT took 1/3. Hijo de LA Park did not get along with his partners from the start and laid down in the third fall for Eterno to beat him. It still took an unseen foul on Navarro from Bestia 666 to give the rudos the win.
6) Hijo de Pirata Morgan b Trauma I, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000 [IWRG JUNIORS]
Pirata put the Rey de Ring title on the line, Trauma I put his mask, and Hijo de Mascara Ano 2000 put his Junior titles on the line. Trauma I escaped the match after Mascara splashed Pirata Morgan and Trauma beat Mascara (with lots of interference from Morgan.) Hijo de Pirata Morgan used his Perla Negra (said to be a reinera variant) to submit Mascara and win the Juniors title. Mascara argued he got the ropes, but was ignored.


Lucha Libre in Japan

09/17 Stardom: Dark Angel b Kyoko Kimura [5STAR GP]
– if Dark Angel wins her final match on 09/30, she advances to the final. A CMLL luchador has an actual chance to make a final! It’s too bad they won’t mention this.

09/17 NOAH: Super Crazy [O] & Ricky Marvin b Yoshinobu Kanemaur & Genba Hirayanagi [X] [JH TAG tournament]
– Marvin & Crazy have the same situation; one match left, and if they win, they go to the final.

09/17 ZERO1: Takafumi Ito, Phil Boyd [O], Jason New, Robbie Heart, Tim Edison b Sicodelico Jr., Daichi Hashimoto, Craig Classic, Yoshikazu Yokoyama, Ho Ho Lung [X]

IWRG (THU) 04/14/2011 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), Record (1-3), Record (4)]
1) Centurión & Saruman b Carta Brava Jr. & Vampiro Metálico
2) Dinamic Black, Dragon Fly, Golden Magic b Alan Extreme, Fresero Jr., Imposible
3) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro b Avisman, Bombero Infernal, El Hijo del Diablo [lumberjack strap]
Bombero Infenral replaced Gringo Loco, and this was suddenly a one fall lumberjack strap match.
4) Negro Navarro, Trauma I, Trauma II b Barba Roja, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan
Navarros dominated the mat portion of the first fall, but the Pirata would rush in and break up their holds. When the Navarros argued, the Piratas attacked from behind and won the fall. Navarros came back at the end of the second fall to take it. Negro & Trauma beat Pirata & Hijo in the third to take it, and that probably sets up another tag title mat

Arena Mexico has Guerreros del Atlantida teaming up to take out a trio of psuedo-outsiders: Goto, Volador & Garza. Semimain includes Rey Bucanero & Mr. Aguila inexplicably teaming. Tonight is also night 3 of the Forjando un Idolo matches, with Dragon Lee/Delta & Metal Blanco/Guerrero Maya. Dragon Lee is nervous and excited for his Forjando un Idolo match.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.


  • Maricela Pena did a video interview at the annual AAA show for Escuela Antonio Pena. Pretty sure this interview is not pre-empted by a Santo one.
  • Rush says the era of Rey Bucanero is over, and now’s the time of Rush. He wants the hair match to prove it.
  • Ultimo Guerrero explains he was harsh with Escorpion because he’s taught the entire group techniques to win, and he goes out and gets disqualified instead. UG wants good clean competition, how odd.
  • Aerostar says he, Laredo and Octagon haven’t decided which one gets to have the Super Fly mask match, but he wants it.
  • Black Warrior is happy the fans have welcomed him back and wouldn’t mind feuding with Negro Casas.
  • Chica Tormenta thinks this weekend’s DTU show is her biggest opportunity yet, but also hasn’t seen her child since New Year’s Day. That’s rough.
  • Drastick Boy is looking forward to his big match.
  • Martha Villalobos is running a charity show.
  • Blue Demon Jr. (via Luchando Libre) is opening a wrestling school. Like every other school, Negro Navarro & Solar may teach classes.
  • Besides the previously announced PWR date, Hijo de La Park mentions he’s heading to Colorado.
  • Estrellas del Ring chronicle’s Dinastia’s ninth defense of the LJLL title.
  • Porra Fresa previews Monday’s Arena Puebla show.
  • A new R de Rudo podcast is up.


CMLL (SUN) 04/17/2011 Arena Coliseo – just the two mystery matches, via Box Y Lucha
1) Freesbe & Principe vs Disturbio & Semental
2) Dragon Lee, Enrique Vera Jr., Hijo del Signo, Hombre Bala Jr., Super Halcon Jr. vs Artillero, Inquisidor, Rayo Tapatío I, Rayo Tapatío II, Súper Comando [cibernetico]

A big match in the Gen11 vs Primera war…not even listed on CMLL’s official poster.

CMLL has simultaneous told these three stories:

  1. The debuts of the Generacion 2011 luchadors and the opening match wrestlers fighting back against them to protect their spots*
  2. The traditional Gran Alternativa tournament
  3. The Forjando Un Idolo tournament

Some wrestlers are only involved in one of the stories, some of the Gen11 guys are involved in all three, but there’s not a shred of continuity shared between the stories. The Rayo Tapatio activities are not mentioned outside the second match on Sundays. The Gran Alterantiva winner has not been treated any special on other shows, but instead immediately shamed in the Forjando tournament. At best, these storylines are operating completely independent of each other; in reality, they’ve worked at cross purposes, causing no one to stick out.

Three** different stories means (at least) three different programmers. All clearly given the same marching orders (push some young people NOW), but also all working on their own ideas and not interested in supporting each other’s concepts. This is a definite change – it’s always seemed to be one voice from CMLL, but there’s clearly a lot of individuals shouting and not much listening. We’ve talked about how CMLL needs to focus more on a smaller group of guys to get them over, but if everyone’s going to got agree which guys to push at the top, and they can’t even agree 0n eight rookies to push somewhere in the middle.

This is really where someone who supervises these people needs to pick the direction and get everyone behind it. If only CMLL had a hall of fame promoter who could do that.

* – that reasoning for the feud hasn’t really been explained well enough, but I’m 100% sure it’s based on real tensions. There’s only so many matches go to around, adding a dozen new guys means the older guys will lose and be a bit bitter about it.

** – maybe four, if you want to count Palacio Negro & Metal Blanco’s run to the trios titles, but that may be someone doubling up.

Park vs Pirata (juniors), Averno/Dorada

IWRG (SUN) 02/13/2011 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), The Gladiatores, Al Filo del Ring]
1) Imposible & Tonatiuh b Fulgore I & Fulgore II
quick falls
2) El Pollo & Eragon DQ Hammer & Magnifico
Pollo turned on Eragon after Eragon accidentally hit him a few times. Ref waved it off as a DQ. Pollo appeared to join the rudo side after the match.
3) Carta Brava Jr., Comando Negro, Eterno b Alan Extreme, Dinamic Black, Golden Magic
Comando Negro reversed a roll up and grabbed the bottom rope to beat Alan Extreme. Alan shoved the ref for blowing the call. Eterno suffered a wrist injury catching a dive at the end. Golden Magic, replacing the billed Goleador, appears to be a new name.
4) el Ángel, Multifacético, Veneno b Avisman, Destroyer, El Hijo del Diablo
Destoyer’s girl Sherry got involved as usual. She teased kissing Veneno in the third fall, Veneno knocked her away, but Diablo still pinned him.
5) Bobby Lee Jr., Hijo de LA Park, Trauma I b Bestia 666, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Hijo de Pirata Morgan
Bobby Lee Jr. replaced Hijo del Pantera. Rudos took the first, tecnicos the second, and Park beat Pirata for the win.

Al Filo del Ring has an interview with Los Gringos.

CMLL (MON) 02/14/2011 Arena Puebla [SporTimes]
1) Black Tiger & Tigre Rojo b Sauron & Siki Ozama Jr.
2) Camorra, Fuerza Chicana, Robin b Camaleón, Freesbe, Lestat
Robin filled in for Zayco. Despite being on the wrong side, he still won. This was Camaleón’s debut in Arena Puebla, and he seems to be showing up much more frequently this year.
3) Sangre Azteca DQ Misterioso II, Loco Max, Ares, Vangelis, Stuka Jr., Sagrado, Metro, Fuego, Delta [cibernetico]
Ares replaced Nosferatu. No order of elimination. Much like Tuesday’s cibernetico, it came down to two guys on the same team. This time, it was feuding Sangre Azteca and Misterioso. Misterioso yanked Sangre’s mask for the rare DQ finish to a cibernetico.
4) Euforia, Pólvora, Virus b Ángel de Oro, Diamante, Rush
Virus snuck in a foul on Rush for the pin. Rush demanded a rematch for next week, and Virus accepted.
5) La Sombra, Máscara Dorada, Super Porky DQ Averno, Mephisto, Volador Jr.
Rudos took the firs, tecnicos took the second, Averno yanked Dorada’s mask in the third fall.

R de Rudo has a really good interview with Heavy Metal about his life long love of music. Metal believes Arena Naucalpan, in the late 80s, was the first lucha libre arena to use entrance music. The building also doubled as an  skating rink (!!) so they had the music and lights already set up.


07/17: Naucalpan, Guadalajara, Puebla, magazines

In today’s Ovaciones, Hijo de Perro Aguayo announced he’ll return to the ring on 08/03. No match is announced, but Perro would enjoy teaming with the Perros against Mistico. That’s sure possible.

Speaking of strange people who want to challenge Mistico, the goofy band which was calling him out before, Loco Solitario, announced they want Mistico to have to sing when he loses. Mistico responded by uping the stakes, exactly as he usually does – Mistico will sing and unmask if he loses to the band leader, but if (when) he wins, everyone in the band has to shave their head. Mistico is very anti-hair.

IWRG (SUN) 07/15 Arena Naucalpan [IWRG]
1) Samba & Tortugilo Ninjo b Comando Gama & Golem
2) Cyborg, Fantasma de la Ópera, Xibalba b Ave Fenix, Kid Tiger, Marco Rivera
3) Cerebro Negro, Tony Rivera, Ultraman Jr., Veneno b Black Terry, Dr. Morvus, El Hijo del Diablo, Enfermero Jr.
4) Hijo de Cien Caras & Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. b Electroshock & Hijo de Anibal [IWRG IC TAG]

Fantasma de la Opera ran in the tercera to attack Black Terry, which helped the tecnicos. There’s probably another match here, but IWRG didn’t report it. I’m just happy they’re reporting anything.

CMLL (SUN) 07/15 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Mayu @ el Martiente]
3) Dr. X, Infierno, Mr. Trueno b Astro Boy, Oro II, Plata
4) Marco Corelone, Máscara Sagrada, Rayman b Cien Caras Jr., Eclipse, Olimpico
5) Dr. Wagner Jr. b Terrible [UWA HEAVY]

Lots of pictures at the link.

Olimpico replaced Lizmark Jr. I have not seen a result with Lizmark Jr. in it since the June 29th main event against Blue Panther. Maybe he’ll show up for his scheduled match today in GDL, or maybe he’s vanished for three weeks and I’ve just now noticed.

Speaking of, no Black Warrior at TripleMania makes his disappearance all the more strange.

CMLL (MON) 07/16 Arena Puebla [hugo999 and others @ box y lucha]
1) Blue Center, Forajido, the Tiger b Centella de Oro, Espiritu Maligno, Siki Ozama Jr.
2) Coco Blanco, Coco Rojo, Coco Verde DQ Fuerza Chicana, Skandalo, Toro Bill Jr.
3) Mascara Purpura, Maximo, Valiente b ? (japanesse), Goto, Okumura
4) Alex Koslov, Sagrado, Volador Jr. b Averno, Sangre Azteca, Toscano
5) Atlantis, Olimpico, Ultimo Guerrero b Blue Panther, Mistico, Negro Casas

Evil Monkey distracted the ref in the main, and UG fouled Panther for the pain. Not sure about that semimain result. Ohara was supposed to be in the tercera, but was replaced by a Japanesse man the regulars couldn’t identify. (I’d presume one of the IWRG crew.) Skandalo yanked Coco Verde’s mask.

AAA (TUE) 07/17 Gimnasio Revolucion Culiacan [Noro Este]
1) Extreme Tiger & Laredo Kid vs Espiritu & Scoria
2) X-Pac vs Super Porky, Scorpio Jr. [bull terrier, $10000]
3) Pimpinela Escarlata vs Polvo de Estrellas, May Flowers, Cassandro, Jessy, La Rebelde [hair, mask, cage]

I just like the idea of someone winning $10000 in a match. The cage match is not too hard to figure out.

AAA (THU) 07/19 Arena Tigre Padilla [Zocalo.com.mx]
1) Aguila Plateada vs Demonio Negro
2) Black Boy & King Warrior vs Carvenicola & Konan Gay
3) Capricornio, Coyote, Garlin Boy vs Euforia (Monterrey), Negro Villa, Simbolo
4) Barba Roja, Hijo del Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan Jr. vs Baby Rap, Golden Boy, Rey Demonio, Sky

As best I can now figure, this is how everything has gone

Kaleth -> Barba Roja
