The crazy world of Lucha Libre continued this week–let’s see what happened…

CMLL

Last Friday/This Friday

The main event of this show was Volador, Angel de Oro, and Niebla Roja faced Rush, El Terrible, and Bestia del Ring and it was a match. It was a two fall match where Angel won the match by DQ groin shot. Rush cut a promo but to me it all hurts because Rush is booked for the ROH ppv the same day as Homenaje Dos la Leyenda. Now maybe the Mexican fans don’t know this but I do and anyone with internet who’s a die hard wrestling fan in Mexican and who follows independent wrestling because maybe they follow the Crash knows Rush won’t be there. Another name who won’t be there is Volador apparently. He is booked for another show that day, the same show Pentagon and Fenix are booked for as to why they won’t show up. CMLL took Pentagon and Penix off the listing really quick but have left Volador on. So maybe they find a way to get Volador off that booking.

Caristico, Diamante Azul, and Valiente faced Gilbert El Bourica, Cibernetico, and El Zorro or The Chris as they call him. It was a pretty fun match where Azul’s mask got removed by Gilbert in the third fall for the win. Azul challenged Gilbert to a mask vs hair match so let’s see what happens with that. Titan and Templario had a pretty fun lightning match before all that. This upcoming show will be a hold over show till next week so I don’t expect much. Caristico, Angel de Oro, and Niebla Roja will face Rush, Terrible, and Bestia in the main event. So it’s basically last weeks match except with Caristico. Co-main event is Diamante Azul vs Gilbert el Bourica in a proper singles match. No mask or hair on the line but it should still be good. I don’t know why it couldn’t be saved for the PPV. Atlantis, Dragon Lee, and Valiente will face Sanson, Cuatrero, and Forastero. Cards actually not that bad.

Arena Puebla Monday

The main event of this show was Ultimo Guerrero facing Vangellys in a match for the heavyweight championship. It was an alright match but the crowd wasn’t that into it. Ultimo Guerrero retained his title. Co-main event Caristico, Mistico, and Soberano took on Mephisto, Ephesto, and Luciferno in a really fun match. Mephisto loss the match by kicking Mistico below the belt.

Arena Mexico Tuesday

The main event of this show was Mistico, Titan, and Soberano facing off against Terrible, Mephisto, and Ephesto. It was supposed to be Negro Casas but he wasn’t there but they kept him on the listing anyway. CMLL doesn’t typically do that. El Terrible’s team won which makes sense because he’s in the main event at Dos leyenda. Atlantis, Stuka, and Flyer faced Hechicero, Templario, and El Felino in the co-main event Atlantis beat Hechicero with a roll up in the third fall. Blue Panther faced Luciferno in a lightning match and it was really fun. It’s amazing how good Blue Panther is at 58. He did 4 dives in the match and looked like he had so much energy.

AAA

Live on Twitch 3/3

Well boy was this a show. So the main event which wasn’t announced on the billboard of the show was the Perro Aguayo Jr cup between La Parka, Blue Demon Jr, and Dr. Wagner Jr. Perro Aguayo Jr was the poor kid Rey Mysterio accidentally killed. A total freak accident. An 80 year old man can take that spot and be okay but either it was a .00001 percent chance of happening or the kids neck was messed up. So this match was odd. Something happened to Blue Demon that busted him open and I believe legitimately rocked him. So he was dazed and the two baby faces double teamed him because they’re old school professionals and that’s how you work but here it doesn’t make sense. The crowd starts to boo them and it’s making Blue Demon a baby face which it’s not supposed to be. So a bunch of people get sent out. The Mercenaries come out and lay out La Parka to establish him as a baby face again. Dr. Wagner gets beat on and bloodied by Blue Demon when he recovers himself to establish him as the heel again. Regardless he ended up winning in such a weird main event.

The co-main event was Psycho Clown, Pagano, and Aerostar facing Rey Escorpion, Chessman, and Monster Clown. This was a straight up brawl as the main events usually are except this wasn’t the actual main event even though I thought it was. Monster Clown pinned Aerostar with a slam where he landed on his head. Everything else was basically a hold over show until the next big AAA show Rey de Reyes. I put the match card in the previous review so look at that if you want to see it.

Here & There

MLW had a good live show last Saturday. The Lucha Brothers faced Laredo Kid and Taurus. You should watch that match for sure. I think LA Park faced Mance Warner at the taping and he’s set to face Pentagon Jr on Thursday April 4th. He was supposed to face Rush but Ring of Honor had to ruin that by making him some random wrestler on their horribly booked program where they still wrestle inside of a box except for the G1 super show in which they can thank New Japan for. I still expect Ring of Honor to plummet. New Japan will rebound because they have a great booker. More news of that show is, Dragon Lee will face Bandido and Ishimorii for the New Japan Jr Heavyweight belt. That should be great as well. Impact is doing the Lucha Bros vs Sabu and RVD I believe the same day as LA Park vs Pentagon. That’s gonna be a tiresome weekend for top independent guys. Let’s hope Fenix doesn’t kill himself before Double or Nothing.

King’s WrestleMania Rewind: Eddie Guerrero vs. Rey Mysterio (WrestleMania 21)

Eddie Guerrero WWE WrestleMania 21

In the next WrestleMania Rewind, Chris King takes us back to WWE WrestleMania 21, and Rey Mysterio vs Eddie Guerrero in a battle of tag team champions!

Chris King is back with his third edition of WrestleMania Rewind. This week he’s bringing us back to some ‘Latino Heat.’ We’re rolling back to WrestleMania 21 where Eddie Guerrero faced longtime friend and rival Rey Mysterio.

This would be Guerrero’s last Mania match caused by his unfortunate death. Over on SmackDown, Mysterio and Guerrero would become the tag team champions at No Way Out where they defeated MNM.

Chavo Guerrero would get into the head of Latino Heat by making him believe Mysterio was trying one-up his tag team partner. Chavo went as far as to tell his uncle to stop using the Guerrero name.

Guerrero would finally give in to his nephew’s manipulation and went on to challenge Mysterio to a one-on-one match at WrestleMania 21. I For the first time in history, both tag team champions would face each other. Guerrero vs. Mysterio was the first match on the stacked card. Both partners threw everything at each other including the kitchen sink in a battle of one-up-manship.  In an incredible high-octane match that saw both superstars delivering counter for counter, Mysterio pulled off the win with a surprise pin roll up.

A few months later, what once was a friendly battle turned into a nasty fight involving the custody of Mysterio’s real-life son Dominik Mysterio. After several torturous weeks, both former tag team champions would face off in a ladder match with the custody of Dominick on the line. I forgot how amazing this rivalry was and it’s definitely worth a watch. Sadly, we would lose Latino Heat in November of 2005. There will never be another Eddie Guerrero. Viva La Raza!

King’s WrestleMania Rewind: Stone Cold VS. Scott Hall (WrestleMania X8)

Chris King is back with another WrestleMania Rewind, looking at the NWO’s Scott Hall battling Stone Cold Steve Austin at WWE WrestleMania X8 from Toronto!

Steve Austin Scott Hall WrestleMania X8

Chris King is back with another WrestleMania Rewind, looking at the NWO’s Scott Hall battling Stone Cold Steve Austin at WWE WrestleMania X8 from Toronto!

Chris King is back this week with another edition of WrestleMania Rewind, where he is rewatching all the past Mania matches and feuds. This week you’re in for a treat as we look back at ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin vs. Scott Hall at WrestleMania X8.

In late 2001, Vince McMahon bought out his competition WCW and acquired the rights to a plethora of talent including Booker T, Eddie Guerrero, Chris Benoit, and the iconic trio known as NWO. Hulk Hogan; Kevin Nash, and Scott Hall were hell raisers, and what better way to make a name for yourself than take out the two top superstars in the WWE The Rock, and Stone Cold?

The NWO cost Austin his chance at becoming the Undisputed Champion at No Way Out during his match with Chris Jericho. Adding insult to injury, the NWO spray-painted ‘The Texas Rattlesnake’ with their brand logo just like they did in WCW. As you can imagine, Austin was pissed and out for revenge against the group and primarily Scott Hall.

Hall would challenge Stone Cold to a match at WrestleMania 18. Both superstars beat the living hell out of each other leading up to this highly-anticipated match for who runs the WWE.

The glass broke and Stone Cold made his iconic entrance, and black and white NWO covered Halls’ entrance alongside Kevin Nash. With the odds stacked against ‘The Toughest S.O.B’ could Austin or NWO prove their dominance? Sadly the NWO  broke up that very night when Hulk Hogan came to the aid of his adversary The Rock after their ‘iconic’ dream match. Stone Cold would ensure the victory with the Stunner. Hall would perform an Oscar-worthy sell over the finisher.

What a time to be a wrestling fan in the 2000s when nothing was impossible for WWE. Who would’ve thought WCW would go out of business and Hogan would make his long-awaited return to WWE?
