2012 Lucha Libre Win/Loss Records

This is getting later every year. Again, I’m still finding lineups and results from 2012. This is what I have now.

As always, these records are obtained simply off of publicly available lineup info and records. I know I’m missing many, many lineups and more results. This is the best I have, but the totals are greatly influenced by the ease of finding some promotion’s info (CMLL, IWRG) and the difficulty in finding info on other groups (everyone else.) There are an endless amount of small shows which will never be advertised in a place were I can see it; these are not complete, just as accurate as I can make them. The records include matches in Japan which were co-promoted with Mexician shows, and some shows in Central America just to be random. When it’s really easy to follow a Guatemalan promotion and they use CMLL guys, I include them.

Where these are broken up by promotion, I’m counting all matches the luchador had, not just those in the promotion. If they’re listed in that promotion, that means they worked at least 1 match for that group (or building.)

This year, I’ve included broken down results from Arena Xalapa and Arena Aficion because results were plentiful (Xalapa results have since dried up) and also I’m clearly insane. Xalapa works a little like bit like, with a solid core of regulars and occasionally bringing in outsiders for main events. Their main promotion is AAA affiliated, but AAA guys only appear every so often and not in great number. Arena Aficion is more like Arena Lopez Mateos, where there’s a lot of shows with  locals (trainers/trainees) and DF indy guys on top, and a few shows where other promoters just completely take over for teh night. Lots of guys like the Cerbero/Pirata/Dinamitas pass thru. There is some semblance of a ‘regular’ roster, but much less of one than I had suspected before starting to sort it out. I’m not doing this for Arena Lopez Mateos because the names turn over so much, and I probably wouldn’t have bothered with Aficion if I had realized it was the same there.

2011 Lucha Libre Win/Loss Records

La Mascara had those 2 matches in Japan if you want a tie breaker, but I’m pretty sure he’d be okay with us forgetting those.

Top in IWRG (of those who spent most of the year there): Eterno (123), though a couple of those might be a Yucatan/QR based Eterno. Trauma I had 119.
Top in GDL: Metatron (46)/Infierno/Malefico (41)
Top in Puebla: Stigma (31) – may include other Stigmas, but I may have weeded them out

2010 Lucha Libre Win/Loss Records

Checking off end of year stuff to do. There’s something else I’m forgetting…

I recorded 2,564 shows this year, up from 2,356 from last year.

Most Matches

2008: Ultimo Guerrero (228)
2009: La Parka Jr. (211)

175	Último Guerrero
157	Volador Jr.
153	Silver King
153	Atlantis

151	Averno

Sombra’s matches do not include his matches in Japan, which push him to second. Mascara Dorada just missed the list at 150.

Top in IWRG: Dr. Cerbero (97). Eterno has more, but it only points out there’s multiple Eternos.
Top in GDL: Metal Blanco (50) or Astaroth (49) if you don’t count the DF matches for Blanco
Top in Puebla: Black Tiger (26)

2008 IWRG and Major Indy Records

We close out this feature by looking at two intermixed categories: the wrestlers of IWRG, and significant wrestlers who are not regulars in any promotion.

I’ve tried to follow the formula of Puebla and Guadalajara and distill down the IWRG list to those who work they’re regularly and don’t disappear when the TV (and the money from TV) does. It’s a bit iffy, and I realized that I still haven’t matched up the Oficials to the previous gimmicks (here or the wiki, come to think of it.) And we have the problem of two guys using the name Eragon at the same time for no particular reason. Did I ever tell you that, should I ever become National Commissioner of Lucha Libre, my first act would be create a national registry of licensed wrestlers and immediately prohibit anyone new from using the same name as an active/recently active wrestler? (ACT 2: one Hijo/Jr./II per gimmick. EVER.)

Anyway, what I have is what I have and that’s what we’ll go with. The Oficials strong run thru the year has given them high win percentage, unusually so for rudos. Local rudos seem to much better than average here, and I think it might because the outsiders usually are brought in as tecnicos and there’s quite a bit of rudo wins. Plus, the more experienced regulars here are almost all on the rudos side.

2008 CMLL GDL/Puebla Records

Why not? I figured out the regulars and separated them out from the normal CMLL wrestlers.

First up is GDL.  There’s not the same separation between tecnicos and rudos you get in Mexico City. I did not realize what a ridicolous amount of shows Thunder Boy is on here.  He led with 65 appearance in 2008, with Malefico and Gallo also cracking the “once a week, every week” barrier.  Being a regular here means working 3 times a month.

2008 AAA Records

The story here has to be the Psycho Circus. Even with all the wacky manipulation of the win streak (going up seven each week, despite not actually wrestling outside of the TV tapings early on), the legit number looks to be pretty impressive. Killer Clown did lose on AAA + Indy random teams show, but I can not find a loss for either Zombie Clown or Psycho Clown. There might be one out there for Zombie that I’m forgetting, based on the mention of this streak in a recently Wrestling Observer (which said only Psycho was undefeated.) Psycho does have the most known matches of the two, 44 Wins and 88 Unknowns which can safely be assumed to be wins in this situation. That’s a 132 match undefeated streak on the year. (Zombie is at 130.)

Just for fun, I checked DDTDigest’s Win/Loss records for 1998. I forget if Goldberg had any more wins after taking his loss in Starrcade that year, but he did have 134 confirmed wins (and 5 NDs) in addition to that 1 loss. I think we can safely assume that, had AAA being posting it’s spot show lineups on a website for the full year, the Psycho Circus would be easily past 134. Probably could find 3 more matches if you were truly concerned about it.

In straight recorded wins, the Clowns are actually not in the lead. Alex Koslv is, at 67, because CMLL wins get recorded more often (works that way when you have 3 shows a week.) Of AAA full timers, Parka leads the way with 50, Cibernetico is at 46 and then the Clowns come thru. On the other end of the scale, Mascartia de la Muerte got only 2 offical wins. Tied with three is the eclectic trio of Mini Chessman, Jesse of the Night Queens, and Vampiro.

Kenzo Suzuki lead the way in losses is no huge surprise. That’s sort of his role right now, and he excelled at it with 44 losses. Chessman being second is kind of a surprise, because tecnicos usually don’t end up on this part of the list and that’s what Chessman was most of the year. He had 36 losses, and Cuervo and Mesias tied for 33.

Clowns were top in Win Percentage, just ahead of two Parkas (the mini and the full size) and one Mistico clone (Argenis). On the other side, Mini Chessman won only 16% of the team.

Leading the way in most matches was La Parka Jr. at 190, which may explain why his shoulder never gets any better. Chessman, who really should be equally as broken, had 183 and Cibernetico was third at 166 despite missing stretches.

2008 CMLL Records

In my continuing efforts to inflict math and statistics where it clearly does not belong, I bring to you the 2008 Win % Leaderboard. This year, I’m going to break it out by current promotion, although all matches are counted regardless of where the wrestler had them.

As usual, these numbers are my best efforts at recording announced cards and results, but obviously many lineups never make the internet. Of those that do, I’d say that the majority of results are posted; newspapers weekly post lineups for buildings like Arena Olimpico Laguna in Gomez Palacio and Coliseo Fraternidad in Veracruz, but only occasionally do results turn up. Even if they do, I do miss things and make mistakes. This is my best guess based on the knowledge I have, but the margin of error number is quite up there.

Mistico was out of action just long enough to prevent him from retaining the lead in total wins this year. Blue Panther took the recorded win total with 97, and Mistico was just behind at 93. That’s 93 more than Carrona had; he went winless on the year.

As you might expect, Mistico winning a lot meant Averno & Mephisto did not. Averno nosed out both his partner and Ultimo Guerrero for the ‘victory’, getting 84 losses. UG and Mephisto each had 83, Guerrero nearly repeating as leader of this category. Of those with at least 10 decisions, mini Celestial had the least losses, 4.

Of those who with 10 decisions or more, it was Mascarita Dorada who had the best winning percentage. He won 82% of matches, a distance ahead of the two women (Dark Angel at 77% and Lady Apache at 76%) who tied Mistico for the lead last year. This is fairly predictable; both the top tecnicas and the top tecnico minis almost all go over unless they’re doing an angle, which isn’t often, and really not at all for Dark Angel this year. Mistico was right behind at 73%.

Worst winning percentage is obviously Carrona at 0%. Of people who are a little bit more regular, Pequeno Warrior clocks in at 19% and Vangelis is at 24%. Misterioso at 31%, which just goes to prove (something.)

The most matches wrestled, in Mexico and maybe all over the world, was Ultimo Guerrero. Last year, it was 313 matches. This year, it was ‘only’ 228. I’m not sure if that means he’s wrestling less, CMLL is running less events (less regular spots shows in Arena Queretaro, Aficion, and Neza, plus not working with IWRG or AULL) or if I’m just missing more. Sombra is second at 213, fooled by Atlantis at 202, Mistico at 197 and Averno at 189. Matches in Chinese bars are not included.

The full list is below. (more…)
