Bam Bam dethroned, Perros del Mal show canceled, lineups

new champion!

***Fan Appreciation Show, February (SUN)***
1) Artillero & Súper ComandoCamaleón & Trueno
2) Hooligan, Nitro, RazielÁngel Azteca, Fabián el Gitano, Metálico
straight fall win after Angel Azteca Jr. left the match with a nose injury.
3) Pequeño OlímpicoBam Bam [CMLL MINI]
New champion! Trueno and Super Comando were the seconds. Bam Bam won the first, and Olimpico took the last two to win the title for the second time. He won the title with a half crab.
4) Rush, Stuka Jr., ValienteFelino, Mephisto, Texano Jr.
Rush reversed a Texano Tornado into a small package to steal the win. Felino and Perico did not let this stop them from dancing after the match. Mephisto subbed for Terrible.
5) Blue Panther, Super Porky, ToscanoHéctor Garza, Negro Casas, Volador Jr.
Volador lost clean to the Nudo Lagunero.

The scheduled Perros del Mal show tonight was canceled. At least they’re getting better letting people know; Damian and others were outside explaing their side to unhappy people.

Lineups

IWRG (THU) 02/17/2011 Arena Naucalpan
1) Lucky Boy vs Imperial
2) Alan Extreme, Eterno, Explosivo vs Carta Brava Jr., Comando Negro, Imposible
3) Barba Roja, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan vs Negro Navarro, Trauma I, Trauma II
4) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Bestia 666, Damián 666, Halloween and Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro [cage]

Nothing particular seems to be on the line in the cage match. Maybe that’ll change?

CMLL (SUN) 02/20/2011 Arena Coliseo
1) Astro Boy & Camaleón vs Disturbio & Semental
2) Fabián el Gitano, Leono, Starman vs Durango Kid, Hooligan, Puma King
3) Ángel de Plata, Fuego, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Dr. X, Nitro, Skándalo
4) Máximo, Sagrado, Sangre Azteca vs Felino, Shigeo Okumura, Yoshihashi
5) La Máscara, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto

Trios champs teaming up. A lot of that going around.

Yoshihashi versus Maximo is going to end badly for Yoshihashi.

IWRG (SUN) 02/20/2011 Arena Naucalpan
1) Black Sky & Dragon Fly vs Guerrero 2000 & Halcon 2000
2) ?, Alan Extreme, Hijo del Pantera vs Carta Brava Jr., Eterno, Imposible
3) Explosivo, Multifacético, Tony Rivera vs Comando Negro, Hammer, Magnifico
4) Electroshock vs Último GladiadorPirata MorganHijo de Máscara Año 2000VenenoHead Hunter INegro NavarroEl BrazoLa RocaPantera [UWF US HEAVY, #1 Contenders]

That title is Hijo del Pirata Morgan’s from El Paso. Since he just won another singles title, the winner of this has a mighty good chance. First time La Roca is here since last April. He was working AAA spot shows last time he was spotted, but maybe they too figured out he needed a lot of work.

Explosivo reappears from the dead (not literally!) and starts finding himself in matches with Comando Negro. That is not the start of a story with a happy ending.

07/25 Perros del Mal show (Lucha Libre Expo)

PdM (SUN) 07/25 Centro Banamex
1) Drastik Boy & Konami vs Pesadilla & Ragde
2) Celestial & Cósmico vs Mr. Aguilita & Talisman
3) Annie Social & Diva Salvaje vs Medussa & Shelly Martinez
4) el Ángel, El Hijo de Rey Misterio, Hijo de LA Park vs Bestia 666, Black Fire, TJP
5) Supreme vs X-Fly [hardcore]
6) Damián 666, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Halloween vs Black Warrior, El Hijo Del Santo, LA Park

R de Rudo points out this lineup is up with the other ones.

You’ll note that the matches built up on Viva Va Lucha, with promos and everything, are not the matches which occur to be happening. The NWA/Demon show has the match it’s supposed to have, so it’s Los Perros being Los Perros. The first two matches should be good, the women’s match will be what it’s supposed to be and the fourth match is intriguing.

If Santo still is anti-PPV, that means none of the main Perros will be in a PPV match (though they’ll probably show up in the semimain and fourth match, again.) Match will be fun, who knows/if when we’ll see it. Go to the show and watch it!

Obvious guess is Bestia 666 is Damian’s son. All credit to Damian for not giving the world yet another Hijo or Junior, but this appears to be his debut match and it’s a tough position for one of those. FdT and Crazy are working Arena Aficion every Tuesday lately, you’d think they could get Besita a couple warmup matches there. (Maybe he’s been wrestling under another name and I’m worrying about nothing.)

If this is the same Black Fire (and it looks like there might have been multiple), he’s started in Super Crazy’s LLJL kid’s promotion and has worked DTU shows. This would be his biggest match, easily.

No sign of the guy from France or the guy from Brazil. Are the Perros promoting more shows? Are the Perros hyping up people who are just friends of theirs? Who can say! I need a YouTube here.

That’ll work.

06/11 Viva La Lucha Libre PPV (updated, twice!)

Edit 3: I’m just going to leave all the rest of this here like an archelogical dig. Older edits on the bottom, newer stuff on the top.

Today’s changes

PdM (SUN) 05/02 Sala de Armas Magdalena Mixhuca, DF
1) Turbo vs Black Thunder [NWA MEX LIGHT]
2) Estrellita, Leo, Oriental vs Medussa, Pesadilla, Ragde
3) Nova & Oriental vs El Hijo de Rey Misterio & Groon XXX
4) Mr. Águila vs TJP
5) Damián 666 vs X-Fly, ?, Charly Manson, Halloween [hardcore]
6) El Hijo Del Santo, Latin ♥, Marco Corleone vs Blue Demon Jr., el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Hijo del Lizmark

That’s the name they have on the poster for Latin Lover. Don’t ask how I can type that.

Lizmark moved to the main event to work opposite Marco, with Latin & Perro against each other too.

Edit 2: The poster turns out to be right; Sabu’s not in that hardcore match right now, but will be in a match on the PPV. Also, it looks like Leo will be in the trios match, not Angel. Anyone want to put over/under on how many edits I end up doing to this post?

Edit:Perros del Mal put up their own lineup, which I’ve added below. Sabu is the mystery person on that poster. No mention of Dreamer. Between the two lineups, we’ve probably got the whole a card, though there’s one match that doesn’t quite work. I’ve edited the post below to make sense of it.

—-

Website is http://www.vivalalucha.com/; very Perros del Mal banner on the top.  They posted a partial lineup posted so far:

PdM (SUN) 05/02 Sala de Armas Magdalena Mixhuca, DF
1) Turbo vs Black Thunder [NWA MEX LIGHT]
2) Estrellita, Leo, Súper Nova vs Medussa, Pesadilla, Ragde
3) Hijo del Lizmark & Oriental vs El Hijo de Rey Misterio & Groon XXX
4) Mr. Águila vs TJP
5) Damián 666 vs X-Fly, Sabu ?, Charly Manson, Halloween [hardcore]
6) El Hijo Del Santo & Marco Corleone vs Blue Demon Jr. & el Hijo del Perro Aguayo

Poster advertises El Angel, so I would suspect he’s the guy who ends up teaming with Super Nova. (Edit: Or not.) Everyone else is accounted for!

Like the DGUSA PPVs, and ROH PPVs before them, this show will be taped and in advance of airing and repeat many times. This PPV airs in a month DGUSA does not, with the idea that it’d be a regular every other month thing. No price, but it’s probably in the same range as those other shows and depends on the market.

It’s amazing that the Perros del Mal have US PPV, while AAA and CMLL do not. (It’s also amazing that I don’t yet have a way to order this PPV. I’ve got two months to figure it out.)

TJP is TJ Perkins, CMLL Havana Brother of long ago. This is mostly irrelevant to this post, but he’s also working the DGUSA shows and I thought there was some deal where guys had to be PPV exclusive. Probably don’t know what I’m talking about here. His match should be good, and 1/2 should be fun.

PdM (SUN) 05/02 Sala de Armas Magdalena Mixhuca, DF
1) Turbo vs Black Thunder [NWA MEX LIGHT]
2) Estrellita, Leo, Oriental vs Medussa, Pesadilla, Ragde
4) Nova & Oriental vs El Hijo de Rey Misterio & Groon XXX
4) Mr. Águila vs TJP
5) Damián 666 vs X-Fly, Sabu, Charly Manson, Halloween [hardcore]
6) El Hijo Del Santo, Latin ♥, Marco Corleone vs Blue Demon Jr., el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Hijo del Lizmark

Perros del Mal upcoming schedule

Perros del Mal announced much of their schedule for the next two months

04/18: Parque de Beisbol, Pideras Negras, Coahuila
04/19: Nuevo Laredo, Tamulipas
04/20: Arena Queretaro
04/27: Arena Aficion
04/28: Auditorio Miguel Barragan, SLP
the canceled 04/30 show in Mexicali would’ve taken place here
05/01: Plaza de Toros La Monumental, Tijuana
05/02: La Sala de Armas de la Magdalena, Mixhuca, Mexico City
05/05: Celaya, Guanajuato
05/30: Minatitlan, Veracruz

Looks like we already have the 04/18, 04/28, and 05/01 (cage match with mask/hair, plus Charly/X-Fly for hair) lineups written up, and the 05/05 is a rechedulding of an earlier show. Of the others, the 05/02 one is the biggie. Perros del Mal has a long list of guys working this show, and the names not usually seen are Marco Corleone, Latin Lover (unless “Latin” means someone else; they’re trying to skirt the name issue), Sabu, and Tommy Dreamer. Also, there will be matches for the NWA titles and hardcore matches; hopefully at the same time! This will be a Kid’s Day show as well, delayed a couple of days, so tickets will be cheap. This also the show being taped for the US.

Getting back to the list of talent, Perros del Mal also says Marco Corleone has joined. So not so much going back to AAA, and not so much using AAA wrestlers on the MTV show. Sorry for getting that wrong.

(Hilariously, Record interviews Perro Aguayo about Marco’s signing, and Perro is evasive about the foreign wrestlers being brought in. Talk to your website, Perro.)

04/ 25 Valiente Ent/Masked Republic Lucha PPV (Yonkers, NY)

Valiente PdM (SUN) 04/25 El Imperio Night Club, Yonkers, NY
1) El Conquisador, Phoenix Star, Zokre vs Angel (Exotico), Ricky Reyes, Scorpio Sky
2) Christina Von Eerie vs Cheerleader Melissa
3) Mascarita Dorada vs Mini Chupracabras
4) Tokyo vs Charly Manson
5) El Hijo de Rey Misterio vs Sabian vs Puma vs Mr. Águila
6) LA Park vs Tommy Dreamer
7) Magno & Misterioso vs Damián 666 & el Hijo del Perro Aguayo

Valiente’s run lucha shows in NY/NJ with some success (though not always in getting there guys there who’ve they promised.) They’re partnering with Masked Republic and inDemand, with the idea this will be a HD PPV in June, with commentary in both English and Spanish. No mention of price. Valiente’s blog entry says it’ll eventually air worldwide, though no date on that.. (Perros del Mal is only there for our sorting purposes; they’re just talent being brought in, doesn’t appear they’re running the show.)

The non-lucha people are combos of SoCal indy guys, East Coast indy guys, and Tommy Dreamer, who really should be putting together some sort of passport or picture book of every promotion he’s bizarrely working for this year. Von Eerie working here indicates she’s in AAA on a per night deal (which would probably be standard for the foreign women) and I don’t think this affects her status there. On the other hand, I have some doubts about the “Hijo de Rey Misterio is training with CMLL for a debut” story, since he seems to be spending a lot of time on indy shows. Maybe he was, but he isn’t right now. LA Park being here doesn’t affect his AAA schedule, but it’s a nice remainder that it can’t possible be a full time deal with all the other bookings he gets (and, if he should happen to lose his mask, he’ll probably continue wearing it for these sorts of shows.)

The key to making this work will be promotion – the AAA TripleMania PPV did not do so well because it barely got any promotion, and this group won’t have a TV show to work out of. I suspect this will eventually come out on DVD and sell more of those than on PPVs, but I guess we’ll see. They’ve got a lot of work to do, but I suppose they know that.

Besides these matches, they’re promising 3 more unbilled matches. They’ve also announced two shows for Texas on the previous weekend:

Valiente PdM (SAT) 04/17 The Criket Center, Austin, TX
1) Christina Von Eerie vs Knockout Nikki
2) Mini Chupracabras vs Pequeño Halloween
3) Tokyo Monster vs Charly Manson
4) Mr. Águila vs Turbo, Súper Nova, Sabian
5) Steve Pain vs Angel (Exotico)
6) El Hijo de Rey Misterio & LA Park vs Damián 666 & el Hijo del Perro Aguayo

Valiente PdM (SUN) 04/18 The Rodeo Mesquite, Dallas, TX
1) Christina Von Eerie vs Knockout Nikki
2) Tokyo Monster vs Angel (Exotico)
3) Mini Chupracabras vs Pequeño Halloween
4) Mr. Águila vs Turbo, Súper Nova, Sabian
5) Steve Pain vs Charly Manson
6) El Hijo de Rey Misterio & LA Park vs Damián 666 & el Hijo del Perro Aguay

Perro Jr. blames Wagner, Ciber; in need of mirror

(there’s a whole rant here, that didn’t come together as I was hoping. The actual news is before the jump, and you may be well served to  move on after that.)

In today’s yesterday’s Record, Perro Aguayo Jr. attempts to quiet the doomsayers. They’re not going back to CMLL, they’re not folding, and all the blame should be on Cibernetico or Wagner for not showing up, as Perro was assured they would.

On second thought, no lucha libre in GDL tonight

SuperLuchas is reporting local government in Guadalajara has ordered schools closed and public events canceled until May 18th due to 3 new deaths. CMLL has canceled tonight’s Arena Coliseo Guadalajara show, and this alert would appear to mean the announced cards for Sunday and Tuesday are scraped. Next regular show would  be the Tuesday May 19th show.

No mention of the Record show being canceled yet, but it’d have to be for the same reasons. They’ll surely reschedule it (and CMLL will reschedule this show for the same date.)

– Notimex talks to Super Crazy (seems dismissive of Dos Jr. going to WWE.)
Perro Jr. was surprised Dos Caras Jr. wasn’t there. I hope that’s a joke or a misunderstanding because CMLL announced that a couple weeks ago. (In a Box Y Lucha article about Wagner’s veto, Dos is said to have thought Perro was still with CMLL and so it was okay to work this show.) Perro hopes to have US stars on future shows.
Mortiz @ Wagnermania‘s show report

related Box Y Lucha article: Super Nova talks about where he’s been and joining this group

Before the show, everyone came to the ring to thank the fans for supporting them and promising to bring more interaction between the people and the wrestlers. There were some microphone problems here, and thru the show, and Perro vowed to run the sound himself next time if that’s what it took.

Everyone seems to have agreed on the 75% figure. If I understand right, they were in the fencing hall (Sala de Armas) sits 3000 in the grandstand. Not sure how much that leaves for the floor.

The reports from those who there seemed to enjoy the show – the Notimex reports are really excited about it. (Ovaciones doesn’t even appear to cover it.) It’s clear people want this group to work, to create a new independent organization and for it to be wrestler run and wrestler owned. The organization part just seems missing.

No announced return date.

02/17: Mexico results, DF lineups, GdR

ESTO

CMLL (FRI) 02/16 Arena Mexico Results [ovaciones, notimex, ESTO]
1) Mini Violencia, Pierrothito b Mini Fantasy, Shockercito
2) Eclipse, Mascara Ano 2000, Universo 2000 b Blue Panther, Lizmark Jr., Negro Casas
3) Volador Jr. b La Mascara, Sagrado, Sombra de Plata, Metro II, Leono, Super Nova, Virus, Mephisto, Alex Koslov, Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca, Felino, Stuka Jr., Valiente, Averno [ciber, reyes de aire]
4) Hector Garza, Mr. Aguila, Perro Aguayo Jr. b Atlantis, Tarzan Boy, Ultimo Guerrero [CMLL TRIOS]

Elimination order: Sombra de Plata, Super Nova, Valiente (ESTO said he was among the best tonight), Metro, Leono, Misterioso II, Stuka Jr., Virus, Felino, Alex Koslov, Sagrado, Averno, Mephisto, and La Mascara.

Final was Volador vs Sangre, with a Spanish Fly (still in desperate need of a Volador specific name) to win. If Volador ain’t picking up the CMLL Welterweight Title, perhaps he’ll go after the Mexican one. Felino/Alex got the required double pin, and Sagrado got the required injury (ESTO says he hurt his legs going thru the ropes?) Notimex has a triumphant Volador interview.

Perros won clean in the main event, with Tarzan ending up hurt. Both sides relatively respectful after their outcome.

Next week’s card are up:

CMLL (FRI) 02/23 Arena Mexico Lineup

5) Dr. Wagner Jr., Heavy Metal, Lizmark Jr. vs Black Warrior, Universo 2000, Mascara Ano 200

The official story is that we don’t know if Corelone and Koslov are tecnicos or rudos any more. I’m thinking Universo always would like to be a rudo and adjustments are being made, but we’ll see how it develops this week.
