2015 lucha libre appearances by state

One more slice of the data

The big takeaway is there are a lot of people posting lineups for Veracruz on Facebook (and seemingly room for 6-7 groups to run almost weekly around the state.) CDMX and Estadio de México info is easier to find – if I don’t see some of them once, I’ll see it a couple other times – but it feels like there’s as many or more indie promotions running weekly in a much smaller state.

Once you get past Arizona (a lot of POR promociones shows), those are entire states where there’s less than one known show a week. At least some of that is just those places not posting their lineups anywhere where we’ve found them, but they’re also harder places for luchadors.

A full chart of the top 10 in each state is here.

2015 CMLL appearances by day of the week/arena

CMLL has some idiosyncratic system for deciding who gets how many matches and which day of the week they work.  We don’t know how it works, but we can at least look to see who gets booked where and figure out who’s benefiting from one of the strange ways CMLL does things.

(full chart is here)

Friday Mexico (% of all CMLL main buildings)
61% Thunder
46% Rush
43% Espiritu Negro
42% Demus 3:16
39% Shockercito
39% La Sombra
39% Diamante Azul
38% Rey Escorpión
36% Stukita
36% Syuri

Yea, most of Thunder’s matches, far more than anyone else, are on the best paying night of the week. It’s part because his never ending relationship with Ultimo Guerrero, but also because they just don’t use him on the other shows. Thunder’s never worked a Sabado Retro show, he worked only 5 Tuesday Guadalajara shows and 3 Tuesday Mexico. There’s plenty of people who’ve worked more Friday night shows, he (and Stukita and Syuri) just didn’t work many other ones.

2015 lucha libre wins/losses by promotions

Yesterday’s numbers included all matches for everyone regardless of what promotion they were working for. Today, results strictly for each promotion.

I’m skipping the indie groups this year; there’s no sense of a roster for most of them, and DTU runs a lot of shows where results don’t come out. As always, there’s a Google doc with more.

AAA

This is any match on a taping for people who were on the roster (made at least 1 TV appearance) during the year. The “draws” are mostly me weirdly listing the original Guerra de Titanes matches as no-contest to preserve the lineup in the database.

Most Wins: Myzteziz & Rey Mysterio (14) – Psycho Clown was right behind at 13
Most Losses: Jack Evans (16); Angelico, Averno and Chessman were right behind at 15.
Best Win %: Rey Mysterio (85%)
Most Matches: Jack Evans (28) – 27 made TV, there was a match in Monterrey which never aired.

Jack’s a good example of the difference between how CMLL and AAA are experienced. If we just count TV shows that are available in Mexico City – not Lucha Underground, the CMLL Guadalajara show, not Azteca, not anything that simply aired on the internet – Jack had 27 TV matches, the most in AAA. Thirty five CMLL luchadors had more TV matches than him. There were more Gran Guerrero CMLL TV matches than Jack Evans AAA TV matches. Sangre Azteca (24) had more TV matches than Angelico (23). Pentagon Jr. and Mercurio had the same amount of TV matches (21). So did Astral and Alberto el Patron (16).

IWRG

Most Wins: Veneno (25)
Most Losses: Eterno (32)
Big Win %: Miike (82%)
Most Matches: Eterno (56)

What’s left of the IWRG regulars are younger than in recent years. Atomic Star, who was still considered enough a rookie to be in the El Protector tournament recently, had the third amount of matches beyond those two. Hip Hop Man, who’s rarely used in the top half of the card, is fourth. Negro Navarro had 33 matches here, and Black Terry 28. The Traumas are down to about a match every three weeks. Some of that has to do with having less show, some of it aligns with the reasons there are less cards.

CMLL

including the main three arenas, since the DF matches seem to be booked by the same people.

Only including Mexico City appearances.

Most Wins: Volador Jr. (97)
Most Losses: Mephisto (72)
Best Win %: Aereo (77%)
Most Matches: Volador Jr. (156)
141 wrestlers were part of the main roster (excluding Puebla/GDL only and those who only appeared on Elite shows, but also probably missing some sponsored shows.) That’s slightly down from 145 last year. Wagner, Park and Ramstein only lasted for 2 matches. Sanson and Cuartero made it on the DF roster just at the end of the year, but that means I retroactively count all their GDL matches.

Top 10 most CMLL main Arena matches are Volador, Valiente, Máximo, Atlantis, La Máscara, Último Guerrero, Mephisto, Mistico, Negro Casas and Ángel de Oro. Atlantis is is much higher overall; he’s getting a lot of outside bookings. Rush is way down the list at 77, a product of his early injury and his Guadalajara suspension.

Might as well roll out that TV appearance chart too. This doesn’t include the internet only matches.

72 Valiente
70 Volador Jr.
59 Máximo
58 La Máscara
56 Atlantis
52 Último Guerrero
52 Rey Bucanero
51 Terrible
51 Negro Casas
50 Mephisto
50 Mistico II

2015 Lucha Libre Win/Loss Records

Time for the usual end of year stats, because 2015 results might be done (and I might have cleaned it up.) I’m still relying heavily on KrisZ finding posters and I can’t really believe I’m still typing them all in, but here were are.

Year (2009 on) Shows Matches
2009: 2359 shows, 10123 matches
2010: 2580 shows, 11216 matches
2011: 2704 shows, 11972 matches
2012: 2821 shows, 12875 matches (-3)
2013: 2724 shows, 12901 matches (+25)
2014: 5550 shows, 25026 matches (+5)
2015: 6325 shows, 28674 matches

Those +numbers indicate the number of shows I’ve added to those years this past year, or removed due to duplication. It never ends.

I tracked more shows in 2006 than I did in 2012 and 2013 combined. That’s a lot of typing, and also probably a lot of typos. At the same time, it’s a fraction of all the shows that take place. There are plenty of promotions not putting up ap oster where anyone on the internet can find them, and there’s plenty of people putting up other content but not giving a date; it hurts every time I find a YouTube upload and can’t put a date to the match. Also, none of the Season 2 Lucha Underground tapings are included in this, as I’m not posting them until the shows completely air. All data is flawed and this is definitely data.

I’ve put a big chart of all the people I tracked and had matches (2477 luchadors) in this Google Doc. As usual, it’s split up by which roster they were on during the year: if they were on multiple rosters, they’ll show up multiple times. This is a dumb way of doing this, but it’s the dumb way I’ve been doing for years.

Record setters from the year after the break. You can previous years on the records tag.

2014 lucha libre appearances by state

One of the tedious tasks performed this year to improve the database was to improve the location data, making sorting and selecting by states much easier. It’s not the smartest use of my time, because there are other places that do it better, but at least it means this post is possible.

Most coverage of lucha libre is Mexico City & Estado de Mexico based, with pockets of coverage in some of the bigger municipalities. You probably can guess the people who wrestle the most in Mexico City, but what about in the other states in the country (and the states in other countries which are strangely concluded. All information is heavily biased by the posters which happen to make their ways to my eyes, but maybe you’ll impress someone by knowing of Black Golden.

2014 CMLL appearances by day of the week/arena

Let’s cut up the numbers another way: how many main CMLL shows did everyone work? No double counting for working tournaments, this is just how many times people had to show up for works, and which days. It’s a better to work on Fridays, though maybe the difference isn’t as big as it used to be. These decisions are not random.

(full chart is here)

Friday Mexico (% of all DF)
79% Ultimo Guerrero
69% Princesa Blanca
68% Shocker
68% Thunder
65% Rush
65% La Sombra
63% Marcela
60% Mr. Aguila
59% Volador Jr.

This post might have started because I had this impression Ultimo Guerrero was pretty much only working Fridays DF cards. Numbers say that’s a fair impression.

45 Friday Arena Mexico
04 Tuesday Arena Mexico
01 Saturday Coliseo
06 Sunday Arena Mexico
02 Sunday Coliseo
(13 non-Friday non-DF)

He’s still got a big overall total because he’s working so many Fridays (the most) and he’s either in Puebla or Tuesday Guadalajara every week (51 total.)

Princesa Blanca’s numbers are probably inflated by having the big hair feud and then retiring instead of taking other shows that’d balance it out. The best thing about CMLL’s Tuesday Arena Mexico shows is Thunder was only on 1 of them. Mr. Aguila is up there because he’s hardly ever used in Mexico City.

Tuesday Mexico (% of all DF)
100% Fresbee (CMLL) (2 matches)
100% Mima Shimoda (1 match)
83% Gallo
71% Esfinge (Guadalajara)
69% Herodes Jr.
69% Camorra
67% Arkángel de la Muerte
64% Angelito
63% Apocalipsis
62% Aéreo

No wonder Herodes quit. Tuesday seems to be the dumping round of the guest bookings and unwanted on any other show (either veterans who never escaped the opening match, or rookies still looking to get there.)

Guadalajara (% of all CMLL)
89% Gallo
86% Esfinge (Guadalajara)
64% Mr. Águila
53% Olímpico
47% Metatrón
40% Nosferatu
36% Pequeño Violencia
35% Gran Guerrero
35% Camorra
33% Bárbaro Cavernario

First two don’t really count, but Mr. Aguila (originally from Guadalajara) and Olimpico were noticeable as only being booked here. I forgot Nosferatu was still around in 2014, but he wasn’t around long. Camorra had the hair feud which put him here a lot.

Regulars who didn’t make a Guadalajara appearance in 2014: Nitro, Sensei, Espiritu Negro, Acero, Flyer, Pequeño Halcón, Aéreo, Bengala, Leono, Molotov, Morphosis, Apocalipsis, Zayco, Pequeño Universo 2000, Camaleon, Ramstein, Fresbee (CMLL)

Puebla (% of all CMLL)
62% Morphosis
43% Stigma
40% Camaleon
39% Pequeño Warrior
34% Psicosis II
29% Robin
26% Espiritu Negro
26% Pólvora
26% Electrico
25% Olímpico

Stigma makes sense. Camaleon was barely around before his injury. I have no idea why Morphosis is #1. He just teamed with Kraneo a lot, only Kraneo got booked a lot more in other places. There was one Invasors vs tecnicos cibernetico back in January, but otherwise he was just around.

Regulars who didn’t make a Puebla appearance: Gallo, Esfinge, Nosferatu, Silueta, Herodes Jr., Skadi, Angelito, Fantasy, Acero, Pequeño Halcón, Aéreo, Apocalipsis, Zayco, Pequeño Universo 2000, Ramstein, Fresbee

2014 lucha libre wins/losses by promotions

Yesterday’s numbers included all matches for everyone regardless of what promotion they were working for. Today, we’ll look at results strictly for each promotion.

The full chart is here.

AAA

(only considering TV tapings, but including dark matches)

Most Wins: Psycho Clown (21)
Most Losses: Texano Jr. (19)
Best Win% (min 10 matches): Murder Clown (85%)
Most Matches: Psycho Clown (29)
around 111 wrestlers appeared on AAA TV tapings.

Texano Jr. didn’t take all 19 loses, but he was on a lost of losing sides for a guy who was champion. He was a rudo, and the top 7 most loses all rudos. He was only on TV a lot; he and Texano had the most matches. Faby Apache, Fenix, and Pentagon were tied with third, and it’s mostly the younger crew at the top.

IWRG

Most Wins: Metaleon (34)
Most Losses: Hip Hop Man (41)
Best Win%: Mike & Teelo (93%)
Most Matches: Hip Hop Man (67)

Includes some of the FILL shows. 211 wrestlers appeared at least once though there may be some duplicate names, and not all FILL rookies are included.

Metaleon was IWRG’s rookie of the year, with lots of matches and big wins. Hip Hop Man lost nearly 10 more than the closest runner up because he wrestled so much. He worked a lot in other places too and was generally busy.

28 wrestlers had more matches in IWRG than anyone had on AAA TV tapings. There really aren’t many AAA TV tapings.

CMLL

Only including Mexico City appearances.

Most Wins: Valiente (55)
Most Losses: Felino (39)
Best Win %: Pequeno Violencia (84%)
Most Matches: Valiente (85)
145 wrestlers worked a main CMLL show.

I really whiffed on noticing Valiente’s obvious candidacy for wrestler of the year. Felino is on too much and in too big of matches, but at least he’s not winning them. (La Mascara, even less over on the internet, is tied for second.) The Violencia think is still weird. Dark Angel would be next at 74%; maybe never getting a feud means she’s not cheated out of wins by rudas much.

DTU

Sure, why not. Note that many DTU shows do not have known results.

Most Wins: Drastik Boy (14)
Most Losses: Ciclope (15)
Best Win %: Drastik Boy (60%)
Most Matches: Ciclope & Slayer Pack (37)

The lack of results make those numbers not so useful. There’s other people who had more than 10 announced matches and a better win percentage than Drastick (like Flamita and the Nerds), but a bunch of their matches had no known results.

Chilanga Mask

Does not include Lucha Memes.

Most Wins: Psycho Kid & Trauma I (7)
Most Losses: Belial, Fulgor I, Karma (5)
Best Win% (min 5): Psico Kid (75%)
Most matches: Trauma I, Impulso, Belial (12)
More than 129 different luchadors appeared on a Chilanga Mask show.

Appearances are not evenly disturbed – there’s a DF core group, special guests, and local wrestlers all depending on where they’re running the show that day – so the leaders are mostly those guys who happen to be around a lot.

I’ve also included Cara Lucha on the sheet, but it’s too few appearances to mean much.

2014 Lucha Libre Win/Loss Records

This is the usual match record listing, much later than usual. I’ve noted previous years results were heavily biased to shows that shows which get a lot of attention (major DF promotions) and had weird quirks where a small promotion could show up a lot if their lineups just happen to be some place I could easily find. It’s 2015, many (but not all) groups are on Facebook and sharing their posters, streamlining the process. For over a year, Kris Zellnar’s been collected posters from everywhere he can find them. I started transcribing them all into the database arond Feburary. It’s so much work, much of it focusing on luchadors I’ve never seen and will never see, and I’m likely to give up doing it at any point, but it’s provided a much larger data set for this time around.

Year (2009 on) Shows Matches
2009: 2359 shows, 10123 matches
2010: 2580 shows, 11216 matches
2011: 2704 shows, 11972 matches
2012: 2824 shows, 12885 matches
2013: 2699 shows, 12783 matches
2014: 5495 shows, 24998 matches

2013 Lucha Libre Win/Loss Records

As always, these records are obtained simply off of publicly available lineup info and records and are pretty wrong. 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 promotions, 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.

These lists are broken down by affiliation, not by matches in that promotion. For example, the IWRG list includes everyone who stuck in 2013 IWRG long enough for me to consider them a member of the roster (usually just 1 match), but the win/loss/total includes any match that person had anywhere. It’s sorting and not limiting. (I should really do these lists only including CMLL DF and AAA TV at some point.)

I’ve dropped the Arena Afixion and Xalapa sections this year. Aficion (and all Pachuca results, thanks to the tireless work of Funcion Estelar) are still pretty regular but there’s no sign of a set roster (like Monterrey.) Xalapa stopped posted results. I added TxT partly because the last result I put in was their lightly attended taping in Leon, but there’s a lot of cross over with IWRG and the roster data isn’t great. It’s there but I’m mostly ignoring it as a category.

I’m sure more 2013 will turn up, but not much. These results are more likely to change by adding more luchadors to be tracked by name; 1665 luchadors are included this year so far. You can find previous years of this topic under the records tag. I’ve been doing this since 2008; it occurs to me that it wouldn’t be too hard to go backwards and at least post what I have, so maybe that’s a project for later.

The full list of records is here.

Most Matches

2008: Ultimo Guerrero (228)
2009: La Parka Jr. (211)
2010: Mistico (204)
2011: Último Guerrero & La Mascara (188)
2012: Último Guerrero (189)
2013: Ultimo Guerrero (205)

 

Name Total
Último Guerrero 205
Atlantis 199
La Máscara 168
Rush 163
Máximo 160
Valiente 159
Máscara Dorada 155
Volador Jr. 155
Mr. Niebla 153
La Sombra 149

The top 4 are the same top 4 from last year, with Maximo moving up from 6th to 5th (and Mephisto dropping down to 16th.) Volador was 7th last year, 8th this one. It’s all CMLL top 10, which is strange, but based on a lot more people in the 150s and 160s. Psycho Clown was 10th last year, had more matches this year (144, most among AAA) and fell to 13th.

AAA top 7, just for comparison sake

 

Psycho Clown 144
Murder Clown 142
Monsther Clown 137
La Parka Jr. 133
Eterno 121
Pentagón Jr. 118
Fénix (AAA) 117

Exactly 50 people are listed as having 100 or more matches.

Top among people who wrestled in IWRG: Eterno (121) – Navarros were all within 5.
Top among Arena Puebla regulars: Black Tiger (29) – average was 16.5, these guys are getting 4 matches every 3 months
Top among Arena Coliseo Guadalajara regulars: Black Metal (69)
Top among unaligned: Aeroboy (110) – I believe there’s an unrelated SLP guy also using the Aeroboy, which is the secret big problem in trying to keep records like this. Violento Jack is second with 81.

Most Wins

2008: Blue Panther (97)
2009: Mistico (110)
2010: Mistico (128)
2011: Ultimo Guerrero (90)
2012: Atlantis (93)
2013: La Mascara (102)

 

Name Win
La Máscara 102
Atlantis 100
Rush 93
La Sombra 88
Máximo 82
Shocker 78
Blue Panther 76
Brazo de Plata 75
Último Guerrero 74
Valiente 74

As always, the results are heavily tilted towards CMLL because AAA spots shows rarely have results reported. The 19 wrestlers with the most announced matches with no reported results (“Unknown”) are from AAA.

First 100 win year since Mistico left town.

Most of AAA roster: 39 – Monster Clown & Fenix (4oth)
Most of IWRG roster: 45 – Dinamic Black & Impossible (28th)
Most of Guadalajara roster: 33 – Black Metal (62th)
Most of Puebla roster: 15 – Espiritu Maligno (198th)
Everyone else: 27 – Aeroboy (91st)

Most Losses

2008: Averno (84)
2009: Negro Casas (86)
2010: Negro Casas (75)
2011: La Mascara (72)
2012: Ultimo Guerrero (79)
2013: Ultimo Guerrero (84)

 

Name Loss
Último Guerrero 84
Averno 80
Mephisto 74
Volador Jr. 72
Rey Escorpión 71
Euforia 68
Dragón Rojo Jr. 66
Valiente 65
Mr. Niebla 62
Máscara Dorada 60

Having lots of reported matches means having lots losses, but it always tends to be the rudos at the top of the list.

Most in AAA roster (ignoring short term guys): 42 – Pentagon (43rd)
Most in Puebla roster: 15 – Black Tiger (227th)
Most in Guadalajara roster:  35 – Exterminador (67th)
Most in IWRG: 59 – Eterno (12th)
Everyone else: 35 – Aeroboy (63rd)

Best Win % (with at least 10 known results)
only 25% of the wrestlers (579) have at least 10 known results

 

Name W%
Tinieblas Jr. 90%
Voltron 90%
El Hijo Del Santo 86%
Rayo de Oro (Guatemala) 82%
Máscarita Divina 80%
Octagón 78%
Hombre Sin Miedo 78%
Rayo de Jalisco Jr. 78%
Jack Evans 78%
El Elegido 77%

I always love these lists for the weird people. Tinieblas is the best luchador in the world by the stats (which don’t include level of competition.) Voltron is an old Guatemalan luchador show who the Arena Guatemala Mexico promotion is built around, Rayo de Oro is the young tecnico who had a long win streak there. Hombre Sin Miedo is just random.

Most in CMLL roster: 90% – Thunder (11th) – your depressing stat of the day!
Most in Puebla roster: 64% – Ares (67th)
Most in Guadalajara roster:  67% – Smaker (42nd)
Most in IWRG regulars: 76% – Pirata Morgan Jr. (197th)

Worst Win %

Estrella De Fuego 5%
Fly Metalik 9%
Fly Warrior 9%
Pequeño Universo 2000 10%
Argos (Astro Boy) 11%
Jhonky 11%
Mini Psicosis 13%
Baby Star 14%
Pentagón Jr. 14%
La Seductora 16%

Most in Puebla roster: 64% – Ares (67th)
Most in Guadalajara roster:  18% – Thunder Boy (12th)
Most in IWRG regulars: 32% – Sky Angel (84th)

Estrella de Fuego is a Monterrey luchadora. The Flys are indy wrestlers around Mexico City. Jhonky – who I only recently realized wast meant to be pronounced Junkie – is of course a DTU luchador who pops up in Arena Aficion a lot. Baby Star appears to be based in Ciudad Juarez but has been turning up elsewhere, including on Toryumon Mexico shows.

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.

Yuriko 17.00%
Zeuxis 17.00%

Zeuxis only winning 17% is a crime. Mini Psicosis was champion all year. I bet the Gemelos would have much better numbers if we ever got results from their Toluca promotion.
