LuchaWorld Monthly Holiday 2010 Edition
KRISZ’S NEWS & NOTES:
A short-lived rumor in late-September revolved around Mistico reportedly talking to AAA about joining their promotion at the “Heroes Inmortales” show. The rumor was immediately squashed by AAA Vice President Dorian Roldan via twitter. However, a few days later Hijo del Perro Aguayo claimed that he contacted Mistico and Ultimo Guerrero about joining Los Perros Del Mal, but they couldn’t agree on money. Both Mistico and Ultimo Guerrero claimed the rumor wasn’t true.
EMLL banned Salvador Rodriguez who was the writer for Diario Record who reported the whole Mistico jumping to AAA story from their buildings basically for stirring up trouble.
Emilio Charles Jr. showed up at EMLL offices in early October to show everyone that yes he is still alive after being near death due to a very poisonous spider bite. Emilio said that he didn’t want to have his health problems made public but of course they did and he felt that he would come forward after recovering to set the record straight. Emilio said that this has been the most difficult fight of his life against a spider no less but he is getting better and warned everyone to watch out for any spiders around because they can be dangerous.
Hijo del Santo attempted to get a patent on the term “la de a caballo” which in English means the camel clutch which is his finisher and AAA is making a big deal about this because he is getting it patented in the dance/choregraphy section. Santo has been very vocal lately about AAA and other promotions being too much entertainment and not true wrestling so they are using this against him in their ongoing battles. Several AAA folks wasted time on twitter writing about how they wrestle and don’t dance, with one of the first to tweet this being Sexy Star. Yep!
Black Abyss left AAA and was reportedly going to join Los Invasores in CMLL. He has not shown up and is still working independents.
Sexy Star was also rumored to be jumping to CMLL, but that rumor was squashed rather quickly.
Quentin Tarentino was in Mexico City in late October and attended a CMLL show at Arena Mexico on 10/26, having a great time. Two days later, at the Lucha Va Voom show in Los Angeles, Cuba Gooding Jr. was in attendance! He took many photos and signed a lot of autographs as well. Also in attendance at that same Lucha Va Voom show were wrestling historian, Kurt Brown, and ME! Also a thin Drew Carey…
To show you how turbulent things are in most of Mexico right now, King Bulls Wrestling which is basically the main independent group in the Tampico area had to cancel their show on 10/8 which had some IWRG stars on it because of the rash of violence in the area.
Lucha Libre USA returned!
Perros del Mal cancelled their show that was supposed to be held last 10/26 at Auditorio Benito Juarez in Cuatitlan and the reason they were giving was that Raul Garcia who was the local promoter didn’t reserve the building and they were offering refunds to anyone who came to their offices in Mexico City which is a good distance away from Cuatitlan. The excuse was interesting especially since the building was still selling tickets after the cancellation had been announced online which the only way people found out was by going to the PdM Facebook page. Most fans didn’t do that though and were standing outside the building wanting to get in and the owners of the building didn’t know what was going on either so there was mass confusion on all sides as no one from PdM was there to talk to anyone.
AAA started up the Lucha Libre Premier tournament that is held at Six Flags in Mexico and airs on Fox Sports Espanol in Mexico.
There was a cover of Luchas 2000 featuring Psicosis II unmasking Psicosis III who had departed AAA and revealed himself as Toxico in a move that was a total FU to AAA!
A rash of injuries in November for EMLL as Mephisto (contusion in the right parietal lobe of his brain), El Terrible (ankle), Pegasso (knee) and Mascara Dorada (right knee) were out for some time. Mascara Dorada relinquished his part of the Mexican National Trios Titles due to having the injury and a busy schedule defending all his other titles. CMLL.com held a poll to determine the luchador that would replace him, but apparently the guy replacing him wouldn’t be handed the belt and later this ordeal just became too confusing to keep up with.
CMLL announced that Hector Garza, Mascara Dorada, La Sombra, & Strongman would be going to New Japan for the 1/4 Tokyo Dome show and they also announced a talent list for the co-promotional shows on 1/22 & 1/23 which features Atlantis, Averno, Taichi Ishikari, La Mascara, Mascara Dorada, Maximo, Shigeo Okumura, & La Sombra.
Apolo Estrada Jr. took Brazo de Platino’s hair in the big cage match in Chilpancingo. Other participants in the match were Atlantis/La Mascara/Dragon Rojo/Volador Jr./Hijo del Anibal/Hector Garza/Histeria/Psicosis.
CMLL opened http://radiocmll.com to broadcast the Sin Piedad show and would broadcast all Friday Arena Mexico shows moving forward.
SuperFly after about 2 years of teasing turning rudo finally became a rudo turning on his teammates and revealing himself as Octagon’s mystery attacker.
Latin Lover joined CMLL and revived his feud with Hector Garza! His agreement with CMLL will allow him to work around his other commitments of being on TV.
The annual EMLL bodybuilding contest took place yesterday at Arena Mexico and here are the results:
Lluvia = 3rd place
Dalis la Caribena = 2nd place
Dark Angel = 1st place (for the 5th straight year)
Soberano Jr. = 3rd place
Epidemia = 2nd place
Dragon Lee = 1st place
Sensei = 3rd place
Electrico = 2nd place
Astral = 1st place
Valiente = 3rd place
Molotov = 2nd place
Rush = 1st place
CONTROVERSY IN CMLL BODYBUILDING COMPETITION!!!
We got word from one of our sources that Steve Sims, better known to lucha fans as Dr. Lucha or DR LUCH, indeed bribed CMLL judges so that Rush would be the winner. According to at least one source, the package contained not only money, but numerous gifts like a Starbucks card, and gift cards for iTunes, Crate & Barrel, and at least 10 CDs of Juventud Guerrera’s album! Package also included a book titled “An Idiot’s Guide to Booking Wrestling Shows”!
Strongman was reportedly upset at this news and has vowed to win this competition in 2011 IF he’s not busy CRUSHING the New Japan roster!
The Mexican Bodybuilding & Lucha Commission, which oddly enough is DR LUCH, is currently investigating this and have vowed to have results on their investigation by 2012. Sims could not be reached for comment due to being in “jury duty”, which according to Vandal Drummond is code for Las Vegas road trip! I’m on to you Sims!
EL HIJO DEL CIEN CARAS (1976 – 2010)
Hijo del Cien Caras also known as Eustacio Jimenez, 33-years-old from Mexico City was murdered early morning, November 29th, as he was with a woman named Adela Luna, 42-years-old in Coyaocan. The Coyacoan police told La Prensa yesterday that they now believe there were two shooters involved and they left the scene in a black Neon. Jimenez and Luna were sitting in a truck in front of a house when the killers came up to the truck saying nothing and just started shooting at point blank range with both dying from the gunfire. The official doctor of Arena Naucalpan was the one who identified Jimenez’s body after paramedics came and tried to revive the victims.
The police believe that this was a case of revenge and they have a belief that it could’ve been Luna’s ex-husband. Luna who is now listed at being 50-years-old not 45 and her ex-husband were under investigation at one time by the Mexico City Justice Department for smuggling goods from Asian countries into Colima, Manzanillo, & Veracruz to which they used that money to buy a nightclub together which they still owned. A report came out that Luna and her ex-husband’s nightclub was not only funded by an illegal contraband network, but they were selling drugs out of the club as well.
The Mexico City Justice Department said that Luna and her ex Rodrigo Mora’s club “Roots” was a total front for their illegal activity and they believe that Hijo del Cien Caras was in the wrong place at the wrong time as Luna was being targeted by rival drug lords.
Eustacio Jimenez wasn’t related to the Reyes family as he just borrowed the name from the family to work as a fake son of Cien Caras but he was in fact the half-brother of L.A. Par-K and was the cousin of Volador Jr
There was a wake held in Mexico City the following night for the late Hijo del Cien Caras where such notables as Brazo de Platino/Damian 666/Fuerza Guerrera/Groon XXX/Halloween/Hijo del Anibal/Mascara Ano Dos Mil Jr./Solar I/Valiente/Sahori/May Flowers/Pimpinela Escarlata paid their respects to the deceased. L.A. Par-K the half brother of Hijo del Cien was reportedly very despondent and said very few words to anyone and had no words for the press. There was a prayer for the deceased followed up by a minute of applause. They took the body of Hijo del Cien Caras to Monclova which was his hometown where there was a wake and a funeral.
Hijo del Santo wrote a good obituary for his friend Eustacio (not Ignacio as earlier reported) Jimenez Ibarra and actually mentioned that he was married to a woman named Maria Felix Rocha and they had four children named Allan Eustacio, Edgar Adolfo, Abraham, and a newborn baby that wasn’t named. This is a terrible situation for that family as they will probably never know why he was with Adela Luna.
ABOUT LUCHAWORLD’S HOLIDAY ISSUE:
Originally this was suppose to be posted in November, but my schedule got a bit hectic mid-November and continued all the way to mid-December. Whenever I did have time to write, I was pretty burned out, so that’s when I made the switch to calling it the “Holiday” issue. I think kcidis disappeared in December because I never heard back from him, but he did an amazing job on the cover.
The cover was an idea suggested by thecubsfan based on an old Spiderman cover. Initially it was going to be a depiction of Mistico possibly leaving CMLL since that rumor came around during that week, but I think we both knew that wasn’t going to happen, so instead I went with it representing the final piece of the Luchaworld 25 for 25, which you can read about below.
LUCHAWORLD’S 25 FOR 25
So I’ve been watching some of ESPN’s 30-for-30 documentaries and I’m also a big hoops fan and recently Kevin Love had the first 30 point, 30 rebound game (31-31) in the NBA since 1982, so what better than to look back at my past 25 years of watching lucha libre with some of the big stories and stars over that time period.
1986: Rediscovering Lucha Libre – Growing up in a predominantly Spanish-speaking family, sometimes I had to watch Spanish television with my parents since they really didn’t particularly care for anything in English besides Golden Girls. I would watch a few telenovelas, some movies, variety shows all in Spanish. As a little boy, my mom got me hooked on the old Santo movies. It started with just Santo movies, but it soon grew to include films starring Mil Mascaras, Blue Demon Jr., Rayo de Jalisco, and many other luchadores who made their way onto the movies like Frankenstein, Cavernario Galindo and Wolf Ruvinskis. I even watched a telenovela solely because Wolf Ruvinskis was on it.
Oddly enough, I hadn’t watched an actual pro wrestling match while catching all those movies. I remember my dad channel surfing, which in the ’80s consisted of telling your child to turn the TV dial, and stopping to watch lucha libre on one of the local Juarez affiliates. I don’t remember much about the match besides it featuring Trio Fantasia and I only watched bits and pieces of it.
It really wasn’t until 1985 or so when I started watching pro wrestling. In 1986, I would start tuning in to the lucha libre tv show that I could find on a semi-regular basis. First impression of lucha libre was that I didn’t like it. It was too “choreographed” with guys bouncing back up from clotheslines so quickly. Matches were too long to hold my attention as well. I was use to watching squash matches and maybe one match that went longer than 10 minutes on TV. I was also used to hearing wrestlers cut promos, which was something that never showed up on the lucha libre TV show I had first discovered.
Most of the lucha libre I had seen prior to 1986 were brief clips from the movies. There were wacky storylines with luchadores battling zombies, mummies, or werewolves. The TV show was different. I kept watching though. It became part of my weekend routine of watching every possible wrestling TV show I could.
1987: A good rudo laugh is a must! – Its an essential part of a rudo’s personality. He can be the worst worker in the world, but a good laugh is enough to get your blood boiling if you root for the tecnicos or if you root for the rudos that rudo becomes someone you’ll always remember. The first couple of rudos that I heard provide evil laughs that were both frightening and funny were those of Daniel Lopez, better known as El Satanico, and Ari “El Gato” Romero. I still hadn’t heard the term “workrate” describing a wrestler’s in ring ability and I certainly didn’t know about a “star ratings system” to judge a wrestling match. I just figured there were wrestlers who were good in the ring, some who used their personality or gimmick to entertain fans and others who were just awful in the ring. The “awful” at times was misunderstood since it wasn’t until later that I learned that someone losing a match didn’t necessarily mean they were bad.
I’d heard sinister laughs in wrestling, but not like those El Satanico and Ari Romero would provide. The laugh was just part of what made these guys great. It was what got me hooked to watching lucha, but what they did beyond their evil laugh was what kept me glued to the TV every Saturday. Both guys were great overall performers. El Satanico is far more remembered and is held in high regard by most folks. His promos were serious with his evil laugh as an exclamation point to show how much trouble his opponent was going to be in. Once the bell rang El Satanico could bring it in the ring. Be it a masterfully well thought out technical match against Lizmark or an all out brawl against El Dandy.
History and really lack of lucha libre footage hasn’t been as kind to Ari “El Gato” Romero. His laugh was more to mock his opponents. He laughed at his rivals misfortune. Whether it was against the Guerrero family, Konnan, Mil Mascaras, Fishman or El Cobarde, Romero took delight in bringing misery to them. He wasn’t quite the level of worker that El Satanico was and is probably far more remembered for being a brawler in the ’90s, but early in his career, Romero was actually a really talented technical worker. In the late ’80s in Juarez, he was mostly an evil rudo who brawled and cheated his way to victory, but he still showed some flashes of his previous technical style. He also provided one of the more entertaining bumps in lucha libre were he’d get tossed into a corner and as he fell he would bounce his head off each turnbuckle. It was fun to see Ari Romero get his comeuppances. However, to the outrage of any tecnico fan who thought Romero had finally learned his lesson, Romero would get interview time and despite being in pain, he still had the last laugh!
Here’s video of another famous luchador with the classic rudo laugh and he’s joined by a masked wrestler who turned out to have a pretty good career!
1988: Ciudad Juarez vs. Mexico City – Style Clash – I was fortunate enough to watch both shows while living in El Paso and they were both completely different. Promociones ACASA ran Juarez with several guys who were local to that area. They’d bring in a big star every week. So one week you might get to see Rayo de Jalisco Jr., the next week El Canek, followed by Perro Aguayo and next up would be Los Brazos. The list went on with Negro Casas, Espanto Jr., El Hijo del Santo, Blue Panther, Misioneros, Satanico, etc.
The key guys who were considered locals were guys like El Cobarde, Fishman, Ari “El Gato” Romero, the Guerrero brothers, Cinta de Oro, Rocky Star/Crazy 33, Rayo Imperial, Flama Roja and some of the guys who worked TJ or SoCal would stick around a little longer in Juarez, like Rey Misterio Sr., Ultraman, Los Chivos and later a young Konnan.
The TV show called “Idolos del Ring” would air on Ch. 44 and would constantly change times. I do remember skipping going to church a few Sunday afternoons because the show was going to air at that time. The show was very simple looking and the building came across looking kind of dirty or sleazy on TV. They also used more of an American wrestling format for their TV show as they would do interviews with the wrestlers backstage. The show also featured quite a bit of blood. They also had an even bigger heel ref than Mexico City did at the time in Julio Quiroga who would at times take it upon himself to cut promos on the tecnico wrestlers.
On Ch. 5, they’d air the lucha shows from Mexico City (EMLL) and they had more of a traditional look to their show. Not a lot of blood. Very few interviews. The matches lived up to the moniker “serie y estable”. The announcing was better as well. A lot of the guys who you’d see maybe once every few weeks on the Juarez show were more regularly featured on the Mexico City show. Guys like El Dandy, Rayo de Jalisco Jr., Los Dinamitas, El Satanico, Pirata Morgan, etc.
It was fun to notice the differences between the two shows. Even the intros to the shows were completely different. EMLL had the classic lucha show intro while Juarez had an intro with the song Final Countdown. Juarez had no problem having wrestlers in gimmicks taken from movies or tv shows like Freddy Krueger, Jason, Batman and Robin. Mexico City very rarely had those types of gimmicks.
EMLL was about the in ring product with storylines built through the matches, while in Juarez storylines were built in and out of the ring. Juarez was booked similarly to American wrestling and more so to what was being done by promotions in Texas and like Bill Watts’ Mid-South Wrestling. Matches might end in DQ due to interference. Teammates would turn on each other. Perhaps the two most famous turns out of the late ’80s were Rocky Star vs. Cinta de Oro and Konnan vs. Eddie Guerrero. The first feud was simply built around who was the number one wrestler in Juarez. Started off as two tecnicos facing off and later had Rocky Star turning rudo, which led to their mask match. It was actually the bigger feud, but Konnan vs. Eddie was really a showcase of the two wrestlers who would leave a bigger mark in lucha libre in the years to come. Leading up to the Konnan – Eddie break-up top rudo, Ari Romero had gone from being “El Gato” to “El Diablo” (including an interview were he licked an opponent’s blood off a fork he had used to open a gash on his forehead), so when Konnan turned on Eddie, they claimed Konnan was “possessed” by the devil…Ari Romero. Konnan soon aligned himself with Romero and heel ref and now some type of agent for Konnan, Julio Quiroga along with a cast of oddities, including Freddy Krueger. So, who do you bring in to combat someone as evil as Freddy Krueger? Why, Fray Tormenta of course! One of the commercials during this run included clips from the movie the Exorcist! I don’t even remember if this feud ever concluded in Juarez because right around that time, Eddie and Konnan started making their way to Mexico City and the bright lights were waiting for both.
1989: Eddie Guerrero – Lucha Libre on television was about to explode and create a new group of stars in 1990, but in 1989, there was one guy who was making a name for himself throughout Mexico and the western part of the United States. Eddie Guerrero was still a few years away from catching fire teaming up with “Love Machine” Art Barr as La Pareja del Terror and part of the Gringos Locos faction, but in 1989 Eddie was all over the place.
He was wrestling throughout Mexico. Following his father and brothers footsteps, Eddie had already made a name for himself throughout Northern Mexico (most notably Juarez). He made his way to Mexico City working for EMLL. He also wrestled for Red Bastien’s WIN promotion in Southern California.
After “injuring” Ric Flair at the conclusion of his world title victory over Ricky Steamboat at Music City Showdown in Nashville in early May, Terry Funk’s maniacal run consisted of him cutting some memorable promos including “Rick Flare“, “living legend and humanitarian“, and “daddy shot the jackass” and also beating up various jobbers. The great thing about Terry Funk was that he was always willing to give a little to his opponents and wouldn’t lose any heat by looking a little weak for even a brief second during a match. In fact, he’d look crazier and even more dangerous after these matches.
The NWA always seemed to have some jobbers that would get some competitive matches like Pat Rose and Mike Jackson. On one Saturday night, Funk faced Eddie Guerrero. To see Eddie in the NWA was a surprise, but the bigger surprise was that he got some offense in his match against Funk. It was a pretty fun match. It should have led to Eddie Guerrero being a regular in the NWA in 1989 especially given the number of new wrestlers they were bringing in like Brian Pillman and Shane Douglas. Instead Eddie Guerrero headed back to Mexico and was a few years away from getting a great opportunity there and a few years away from finally making his way back to one of the bigger wrestling promotions in the United States.
1990: Rayo De Jalisco Jr. vs. Cien Caras – Lucha libre made its way onto Televisa in the early ’90s and soon experienced a boom with various luchadores becoming new stars and also bringing matches to more living rooms. Despite there being concerns from various promoters about the dangers of lucha libre getting too much exposure thru television and attendance dropping, the opposite occurred as fans continued to attend shows. (NOTE: Just imagine some of those same promoters seeing how many CMLL shows are on television right now. They’d be right about attendance dwindling due to their being about 10 CMLL shows every weekend and made more available via the internet.)
CMLL’s business was red-hot and featured some great rivalries with great matches featuring the likes of El Satanico vs. Jerry “El Puma” Estrada, El Dandy vs. Angel Azteca, Fuerza Guerrera vs. Octagon, El Dandy vs. El Satanico, Emilio Charles Jr. vs. Angel Azteca, Pirata Morgan vs. El Faraon, and El Satanico vs. Atlantis. However, no other feud in CMLL had the history behind it and the star power that Cien Caras vs. Rayo De Jalisco Jr. did. Most fans nowadays get antsy and want a conclusive finish to a feud within one year with someone dropping his mask or hair. Cien Caras vs. Rayo De Jalisco Jr’s feud had gone on thru most of the ’80s. It was a blood feud. Cien Caras had established himself over the past 15 years leading to this match as the top heavyweight heel in Mexico. Rayo De Jalisco Jr. was not only the top heavyweight babyface in Mexico City during the decade of the ’80s, but he was also a second generation star. Very rarely do you get a match were the winner and loser can be in doubt when it comes to a big mask match. Usually you have one luchador who is a huge favorite due to many factors (his in-ring success, the mask lineage or the other guy just sucks) and very rarely do you get that surprise winner. However with Rayo De Jalisco Jr. vs. Cien Caras there was a bit of an equality to their rivalry. Cien Caras’ mask was probably the closest of any heel to reach the top babyfaces masks of Mil Mascaras, El Santo (w/ El Hijo del Santo carrying the tradition), Blue Demon (Blue Demon Jr. continues), and Rayo De Jalisco (w/ Rayo De Jalisco Jr. still going).
After feuding on and off during the ’80s their big mask vs. mask showdown happened at the big anniversary show on September 21, 1990. The match actually drew a large crowd and had several fans who stood outside of Arena Mexico hoping to buy some tickets from ticket scalpers. Some just stuck around due to it being a huge event. The match had a ton of crowd heat and was good, but not as great as some of the big matches from some others during 1990. However it delivered and lived up to all the hype. After Cien Caras lost and removed his mask, he tried to make a quick exit through the crowd, but there were so many people in the building that he had to shove a few just to get through and lived up to this rudo ways.
1991: Konan El Barbaro – One of the three big stars that were made during the early years of television included Octagon, Vampiro and Konan El Barbaro. Early in his career, Konnan was a booked as a powerhouse with an incredible physique who didn’t talk much. It wasn’t until his heel turn against Eddie Guerrero that he really got to show his promo ability. Konnan also had a ton of charisma, which put him in the right path to becoming the next Mil Mascaras, El Canek type of lucha libre super hero. He was a big hit in Mexico City. In 1991 he and Perro Aguayo were involved in a hot feud that culminated to a mask vs. hair match in March. Konnan lost, but he had established himself as a superstar in Mexico and he and Aguayo continued through most of 1991 feuding with both later putting their hair on the line.
While some would think this feud would be over by the end of 1991, something was coming that was about to turn lucha libre upside down and take Konnan to yet another level while making Perro Aguayo into one of the all-time beloved pro wrestlers in Mexican wrestling history.
1992: The Formation of AAA – On May 15th, 1992, Antonio Peña and a group of wrestlers (including Konnan and several other big names) held a press conference to announce the formation of AAA. Lucha libre changed completely. Now with Antonio Peña’s creative vision leading the way, AAA would provide a completely different product to that of CMLL at the time. CMLL continued to be a far more traditional promotion, while AAA was far more innovative and had more of an open-mind when bringing in talent and with Peña coming up with so many gimmicks, it was always possible to create a new character to introduce to fans.
AAA started with a very loaded roster that came along with Antonio Peña from CMLL. Among the stars who joined from CMLL were Konnan, Cien Caras, Perro Aguayo, Octagon, El Hijo Del Santo, Blue Panther, Eddie Guerrero, “Love Machine” Art Barr, Fuerza Guerrera, Volador and Misterioso. Perhaps the most impressive thing about this new promotion was that they opened the doors to new talent like Rey Misterio Jr., Super Calo, Psicosis and Winners (later best known as Abismo Negro) and also repackaged some wrestlers like Heavy Metal and La Parka who had started out as undercard wrestlers in the late ’80s in CMLL.
AAA would not only change lucha libre, but have a significant impact in wrestling worldwide as many people who would later make their way into pro wrestling would add some of wrestling moves that they first saw on AAA television via tapes.
1993: The Death Of Oro – Despite only being in the business for about 4 years, Oro is still remembered fondly by those who had a chance to watch him. His death is still remembered with tributes and CMLL holds a memorial mass for him at Arena Coliseo. The clip most often shown of him is sadly from the match were he suffered the injury that led to his eventual death.
Most fans who didn’t watch him wonder why there was so much talk about Oro and honestly it was because he was amazing to watch. He was one of those wrestlers who had to put out the best match possible no matter what and he usually left fans a little in awe from seeing his performances.
There were rumors back then that he was considering getting out of wrestling due to feeling homesick, but its hard to imagine someone that good quitting that easily. There’s a certain rush for wrestlers stepping into the ring in front of a crowd that I can’t explain, but its always brought up whenever I talk to wrestlers no matter if they’re deeply entrenched in the business or just your typical weekend warriors. So Oro’s early death leaves us with another “What If?” which is a pretty common question that’s popped up in the past 20 years with so many wrestlers dying at a young age. Assuming Oro wouldn’t have gone through with retirement, he probably would have been the top tecnico in CMLL for most of his time there, toured Japan more, and I would think he would have been one of the guy’s that one of the US wrestling promotions would have brought in. Assuming his passion wasn’t destroyed from that experience, he probably would have returned to Mexico and bridged the gap to whenever Mistico came around.
Oro’s influence can still be felt in CMLL through La Sombra, who wears a mask that closely resemble’s the one that Oro wore.
1994: When Worlds Collide – It may very well be the most traded or downloaded lucha event ever. I wouldn’t know about the download part, but AAA’s When World’s Collide was quite the big deal amongst tape traders and really was and still to this day is the show that everyone recommends to people looking to get into watching lucha libre. Held on November 6th, 1994 and co-promoted by AAA, IWC and WCW, the Pay-Per-View introduced fans to a new style of wrestling and also a number of wrestlers. The level of star power on this event was amazing as it featured legends (Perro Aguayo), current stars at that time (Konnan, Octagon, El Hijo Del Santo, Blue Panther), future superstars (Rey Misterio Jr., Eddie Guerrero, and you know who) along with several other wrestlers who have left their mark in lucha libre. While it may have been several fans first introduction to lucha libre, it did experience some problems, which shouldn’t be too surprising given WCW’s involvement.
The match most remembered and considered one of the all-time great lucha matches was a double hair vs. masks match featuring La Pareja del Terror, Eddie Guerrero and “The Love Machine” Art Barr vs. El Hijo del Santo and Octagon. Both teams had spent the past 1-2 years feuding with this match becoming the climax of this feud as sadly three weeks later Art Barr passed away.
Several of the wrestlers on that PPV, including Art Barr were noticed by promoters in the United States and soon several were going to make their way to becoming worldwide wrestling stars.
1995: Lucha Libre hits the U.S. – While Lucha Libre was a part of some regional parts of the U.S. (primarily the Southwest and West Coast areas) and wrestlers like Mil Mascaras and Chavo Guerrero had become Latino stars in various parts, it really wasn’t until 1995 when lucha libre became more of an accepted style by promoters and wrestlers in the U.S. It wasn’t a complete acceptance since there was and still remains a perception that the style is different and comes across ‘wacky’, but they became slightly more open-minded to it. There was also the decline in the Mexican peso that had an effect on several wrestlers decision into moving on to the U.S.
ECW headed by booker Paul Heyman was the first to give wrestlers like Eddie Guerrero, Rey Misterio, Psicosis, Konnan and La Parka a chance to show what they could do in front of a very hardcore, smart crowd and for the most part they all impressed. WCW started Nitro on Monday Nights and had every intention to battle WWE for the Monday night wrestling viewers on prime time. Led by Eric Bischoff, many of the top wrestlers from around the world would soon join WCW and as many as 15-16 luchadores would become a part of WCW.
The first of the stars from Mexico to join WCW was Eddie Guerrero, who had already had an impressive series of matches against Dean Malenko in WCW. He impressed and soon a wave of luchadores would join him in WCW.
1996: El Hijo Del Santo, RUDO!!! – On the heels of Hulk Hogan’s heel turn and joining Scott Hall and Kevin Nash in forming the New World Order, El Hijo del Santo shocked many fans by turning rudo in late 1996 at Arena Mexico. While El Hijo del Santo has always been a tecnico and the one who would get cheered against Negro Casas, in Arena Mexico, Casas would usually get far more cheers there than he did anywhere else and at times would get far more cheers than El Hijo del Santo.
The feud between Casas and Santo had been going on and off for many years. On Sept. 20, 1996 the two faced off once again at CMLL’s Anniversary show were Casas won. El Hijo del Santo disappeared for a few weeks and while he was gone fans began cheering louder for Negro Casas. Casas would soon turn tecnico and begin feuding with former teammates Scorpio Jr. and Bestia Salvaje. Bestia Salvaje told everyone that he was so sick and tired of Negro Casas that he would soon bring a surprise for him and that surprise would appear on November 22nd. The match was announced as Bestia Salvaje, Scorpio Jr. & El Felino vs. Negro Casas, Hector Garza & El Dandy. Felino, wearing a cape that covered him from head to toe, stood outside for a few minutes while the match started out. Once Felino stepped into the ring, he removed his cape and revealed himself to be El Hijo del Santo, who attacked Negro Casas and was officially siding with the rudos not because he wanted to, but because Casas being a tecnico “forced him” to join the rudos.
CMLL came back with that same match the following week and after another wild match both El Dandy and Negro Casas challenged El Hijo del Santo to a hair vs. mask match. CMLL then decided on a triangle match were El Dandy and Negro Casas would both put their hair on the line, while El Hijo del Santo would put his mask on the line. The triangle match was a classic and eventually ended with El Dandy losing his hair. The finish of the match was somewhat emotional as there were several women who cried as El Dandy’s head was getting shaved. In fact, one of the final camera shots was of a woman in tears as the show was signing off. Its the type of emotion that wrestling writers and bookers can’t capture despite trying to desperately.
The feud continued into 1997, but that final match-up was one of the great matches of the 1990s.
1997: Rey Mysterio~!!!! – By this point in his career, Rey Mysterio had already established himself as one of the most innovative wrestlers in the world. Known early in his career for his high-flying, he continued to improve in the ring and by 1997 was one of the better all-around performers. The depth in WCW’s roster at that time gave Rey Mysterio gave him a vast array of opponents from long-time rivals like Psicosis, Dean Malenko and Juventud Guerrera, to New World Order members like Syxx (Sean Waltman) and Kevin Nash, to highly-regarded workers like Steven Regal (William Regal) and Chris Jericho. However, Rey brought his A-game most often and had quite possibly his most memorable match against Eddie Guerrero. This would be the first time around for these two who in later years would feud in WWE before Eddie Guerrero’s passing.
It was on October 26th at Halloween Havoc were Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero had one of the best matches from the 1990s. The two had been feuding over the WCW Cruiserweight Title leading up to this match. Including a Nitro were Eddie wore a mask as “El Caliente” to wrestle Rey Mysterio. Rey still came out victorious in that match, which led to the two finally facing off at the PPV in a title vs. mask match. Here’s a highlight video of the match, but if you haven’t seen the full match, you really should watch it as its a great match…
The two continued their feud as a few weeks later Rey lost the WCW Cruiserweight Title to Eddie and the two would meet one more time at the November PPV, World War III. They would wrestle each other numerous times over the years, but the Halloween Havoc match is usually the one most remembered.
Its amazing to look back at Rey Mysterio at that time and realize how much he’s accomplished in the wrestling world. 13 years ago you probably wouldn’t even dare saying he was the most popular Latino wrestler in the United States, but as of today he’s reached that level and probably surpassed everyone’s expectations. He’s also established himself as probably one of the 5-10 most influential lucha libre stars of all-time.
1998: WCW vs. WWE Promotional Wars hit Mexico – Eric Bischoff’s initial success with Monday Nitro was gathering the biggest names and the most talented wrestlers in the world and give them a primetime TV slot for them to entertain the masses. One of the main viewer demographics WCW decided to go after was the Hispanic wrestling fans, so they signed several of the top stars from south of the border. Rey Mysterio, Eddie Guerrero, Konnan, Psicosis, Juventud Guerrera, Lizmark Jr., Hector Garza, the original La Parka, Silver King, El Dandy, Super Calo, Los Villanos IV & V, Ultimo Dragon, Damian 666 and Halloween (Ciclope) were part of the group of luchadores signed by WCW. The idea worked as it not only attracted Hispanic wrestling fans, but for many wrestling fans, this was the first time they had ever seen lucha libre.
WCW even had wrestling insider, Mike Tenay join the announcing crew on Nitro to share some tidbits of information about the luchadores and about lucha libre. In late 1997, WCW aired a 6-part feature on lucha libre with Mike Tenay not only talking about the WCW luchadores, but introducing those who had not seen it before, to the world of lucha libre.
While WCW had success with the luchadores due to them providing good matches on all their shows, WWE had a harder time figuring out how to use luchadores on their shows. In early 1997, they had a few AAA wrestlers appear on various shows including the Royal Rumble PPV, but they never really caught on with their fans. AAA and WWE (then WWF) had an agreement were they’d send talent to each other’s promotion. AAA sent Cibernetico, Latin Lover, Pierroth, Hector Garza (before he joined WCW), Perro Aguayo, Fuerza Guerrera and several others. WWE sent the fake Diesel (now Kane) and fake Razor Ramon.
In 1998, WWE decided to give it another shot thanks to working out a deal with Univision and created a 30-minute wrestling show called SuperAstros exclusively for them with foreign talent (Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Japanese, and Scotty Taylor!). WWE this time around reached out to CMLL to get talent for the show like El Hijo del Santo, Negro Casas, Tarzan Boy (Armando Fernandez), Felino, Rey Bucanero (Rey Ortiz), El Zorro (Christopher Matrinez), Apolo Dantes, Mr. Aguila (Papi Chul0) and Pantera. They also brought in Super Crazy as Super Loco. There was one problem. It seemed like CMLL’s Paco Alonso had not told WCW about his agreement with WWE, so for a few weeks, CMLL was a battleground for the WCW vs. WWE war. CMLL even had a tournament that featured some of the guys who had just signed on to work for WWE and several of WCW’s luchadores including El Dandy, Silver King, Los Villanos and Juventud Guerrera.
The highlight of that brief feud was a WCW vs. WWE trios feud pitting Silver King and Los Villanos IV & V vs. El Hijo Del Santo, Negro Casas & Felino. Probably wasn’t thought of as a big deal at the time in Mexico since word traveled slower back then due to the internet still not being a big deal in Mexico at the time, but it was a really fun thing to see given how much GOOD wrestling was available at that time.
1999: Que Se Mueran Los Feos Y Que Viva El 1000% Guapo – With so many of CMLL’s stars wrestling in the US and in Japan, CMLL elevated a number of wrestlers to not only help keep business going, but also to freshen up the top of their cards.
Tarzan Boy who was splitting his time between wrestling on WWE SuperAstros shows and CMLL was pushed as a pretty-boy tecnico and was put into a feud with lucha legend, El Satanico. Tarzan Boy would soon work exclusively in CMLL as he was going to be getting a big push. The idea was for El Satanico to teach and groom Tarzan Boy in a similar fashion to what he did with Hector Garza back in 1996. Tarzan Boy’s early 1999 consisted of being in trios matches going against El Satanico and his new disciples…
Ultimo Guerrero & Rey Bucanero were part of the newly revived trio of Los Infernales with El Satanico. They would learn the ropes to being top rudos from a true maestro and they fit the mold of the previous luchadores who had been a part of the Los Infernales trios lineage. Ultimo Guerrero in late 1998 had won a torneo cibernetico with the winner getting a shot to move up in the card. He impressed immediately and even had a singles match against The Great Sasuke for the NWA Middleweight Title. Rey Bucanero being from a wrestling family and already having ties to El Satanico through his uncle, Pirata Morgan, was an ideal fit to join the trio. After Rey Bucanero and Ultimo Guerrero walked through fire they were officially accepted by El Satanico into Los Infernales. They were one of the great trios of that year as CMLL featured a bunch of cool trios like Los Villanos and Los Laguneros. The trio would feud with Tarzan Boy and various teammates. The feud was actually quite fun and ran for well over a year as it eventually led to an eventual breakup of this version of Los Infernales and with Tarzan Boy, Ultimo Guerrero and Rey Bucanero would form the original Guerreros del Infierno.
The two wrestlers who got the biggest push were former tag team partners Mr. Niebla and Shocker. Mr. Niebla had suffered an injury in late 1998 which forced him and Shocker to vacate the CMLL World Tag Team Titles. Mr. Niebla would return in early 1999 and reunite with Shocker only now Shocker didn’t seem to thrilled to be teaming with him or any tecnicos. For several weeks, Shocker would team with tecnicos and either cost his team the match or be distracted doing other things. In a trios match were Shocker teamed with Mr. Niebla and Lizmark Sr. against Fuerza Guerrera, Bestia Salvaje and Black Warrior, Shocker refused to get involved in the match. Mr. Niebla and Shocker finally confronted each other, but Shocker had a surprise. At the time in IWRG (small promotion based out of Naucalpan) there was another luchador using the name of Mr. Niebla, which not only infuriated CMLL’s Mr. Niebla, but it resulted in the CMLL-IWRG relationship to be strained for about a year as CMLL didn’t send any talent to IWRG at that time. Shocker’s surprise was none other than the IWRG Mr. Niebla, who came along with some other IWRG wrestlers and attacked CMLL’s Mr. Niebla.
It was a pretty hot angle. CMLL decided that Shocker and Mr. Niebla would be part of the main event for that year’s anniversary show. They also had to build up their feud by having each guy win a big mask match. Shocker got his big mask victory over Rey Bucanero at the Ruleta de la Muerte at the Palacio de los Deportes on July 17th. Mr. Niebla would face IWRG’s Mr. Niebla in a match were the loser would drop not only the mask, but his gimmick name as well. Mr. Niebla won the mask of IWRG’s Mr. Niebla on August 20th in Arena Mexico and IWRG’s Niebla would change his name to Mr. Mexico and unveil the world’s greatest moustache and one of the all-time great rudo facial expressions!
Any and every match that Mr. Niebla and Shocker were involved had tons of heat. The matches were also really good. CMLL at the time was also building up the Villano III vs. Atlantis feud in 1999 (more on that in a bit), so they announced that on September 24th, the Anniversary show main event would be a Relevos Increibles match w/ everyone putting their mask on the line. The match-up was Atlantis & Villano III vs. Shocker & Mr. Niebla followed by the losing team wrestling in the final singles match. Atlantis & Villano III came out victorious and this left Shocker and Mr. Niebla to face-off one-on-one with Mr. Niebla eventually forcing Shocker to submit to La Neblina. Shocker unmasked and as the show was ending screamed out, “Pero Soy El Mas Guapo!” and walked out of the ring while fans laughed and booed him. While Mr. Niebla continued to be a headliner in CMLL, he wasn’t quite at the level of Shocker. Shocker would soon dye his hair blond and refer to himself as “El 1,000% Guapo”. He had a lot of charisma and was a very good worker at that time.
2000: Villano III vs. Atlantis – This feud started in mid-1999 and was the match-up selected to be the main event for CMLL’s first PPV in 2000. The lead-up to the match included both guys involved in the Relevos Suicidas match I mentioned previously for 1999, but it kept going throughout 1999 and all the way to the March 17th PPV. Villano III had join Pierroth’s Boricua stable along with Fuerza Guerrera, Gran Markus and a few others. This resulted in several trios matches with Villano III and Atlantis on opposing teams. They would eventually wrestle a few times for the CMLL World Light Heavyweight Title that was initially held by Atlantis.
Villano III eventually won the CMLL World Light Heavyweight Title on November 22nd, 1999 from Atlantis and on Christmas night beat one of his rivals from his old UWA days, Super Astro in the final match-up of a relevos suicidas match were he took the mask of his long-time rival. This led to one of the classic late 1999 holiday CMLL vignettes were Pierroth and the other Boricuas celebrated Villano III’s recent successes (unmasking Super Astro and winning the CMLL World Light Heavyweight Title) by having a huge party were they ate a pig (reportedly Pepe Pepe, Super Porky’s pet pig, which was stolen by Pierroth’s crew) and danced with some hot mamacitas! Villano III vowed that in 2000 he would take the mask of Atlantis. Who could doubt him? He was on a roll.
One month before the big mask match, Atlantis challenged Villano III once again for the CMLL World Light Heavyweight Title and again could not take the title back in yet another really good match. They met a few more times in trios matches leading up to the big mask match and it generated plenty of interest. The show sold out Arena Mexico, but pay-per-view was such a new thing in Mexico that it wasn’t a show that was viewed by a lot of people live. To this day, pay-per-view in Mexico is pretty confusing as there are many who don’t have access to certain shows depending on their cable or satellite provider.
The March 17th, mask vs. mask match between Atlantis vs. Villano III was an absolute classic. A match with both guys putting on a great performance, with some great psychology which lucha tends to get accused of not having and the crowd heat was outstanding as well. The match was voted the 2000 Wrestling Observer Newsletter Match of The Year and added more to both wrestlers reputations as all-time greats. In the end, Villano III lost and unmasked. While some thought it would be the end of Villano III’s career, it turned out to increase his popularity and extended his run as a headliner for the remainder of 2000. He eventually became so beloved that he turned tecnico.
Prior to that match, most people online who were just getting into lucha libre would usually want to know about AAA, the WCW luchadores or some of the guys who would show up for the top U.S promotions. You very rarely had a lot of discussion about CMLL. It really wasn’t until that PPV made its way through the tape trading world a few weeks after it occurred that interest in CMLL would increase. How that show made its way ino the tape trading world actually goes back about 1 year before the PPV would occur as Roberto (RFC) and I started corresponding via email about tapes. Known to some of us as MTY at the time since he was located in Monterrey, Mexico, he and his son were two of the first people who had a lucha libre website in Mexico that was updated frequently with local Monterrey lucha news and interviews. When that PPV was announced, RFC asked if I wanted he could tape it and send me a copy. I responded with a bolded, “SI!!!!” response. RFC and his son were (still are) HUGE wrestling fans so we worked out a trade and I think he also emailed Rob Bihari and a guy named Chris who use to write lucha tv recaps for 1wrestling.com and we soon had copies of the PPV. I think Rob and I traded with some of the other traders and that’s how that show made its way around the tape trading circles. I do know that the copy I sent to Bob Barnett was soon sent to Dave Meltzer who after watching it gave it a glowing endorsement and it became quite popular. I know DR LUCH asked me awhile ago what was the most requested tape or dvd I have and I believe that the 3/17/00 CMLL show would probably be the one.
The other highlight to the 3/17 CMLL PPV tape that RFC sent was that he included about 10-15 minutes of the Solitario vs. Dr. Wagner Sr. mask match, which was a nice little added bonus for many lucha fans.
2001: El Hijo Del Santo FTW! – El Hijo del Santo has had many memorable years throughout his career. This year in particular was really a fun time to watch him as he was wrestling practically everywhere and thanks to hooking up with a few people in Mexico and finding someone who sold tapes in Japan who was actually willing to send them out to the U.S. it became fun and somewhat expensive to watch lucha libre.
El Hijo del Santo wrestled in CMLL, Monterrey, IWRG, Tijuana, XLAW and toured Japan for both CMLL Japan and had one match for All-Japan at the Stan Hansen Tribute show. He made his way to the U.S as well wrestling in indy shows in Southern California. His run really went all the way back to late April of 2000 in Monterrey were he was feuding with Blue Panther and the two had a couple of excellent singles matches. They both took their feud to Japan in early 2001 for CMLL Japan and were on opposing sides of a lucha match for All Japan as El Hijo Del Santo teamed with the legendary Mil Mascaras against Blue Panther and Arkangel de la Muerte. The All Japan match was interesting in that you had Santo and Panther going all out putting on a great lucha demonstration to zero reaction from the Japanese fans. Meanwhile, the Japanese fans would pop for any big spot done by Mil Mascaras.
In late December 2000, IWRG back in the good graces with CMLL built a feud between El Hijo del Santo and their local luchador, Dr. Cerebro. Dr. Cerebro by that point was already one of the top independent workers in Mexico, so you just knew these two would have some great matches and they delivered. The first match Dr. Cerebro put his IWRG IC Welterweight Title on the line. The first two falls were built with matwork followed by an excellent third fall. In 2001 they followed up that great first match with a bloody Super Libre that was probably the best match out of the three. Finally came the mask match, which was another good match with the final result being El Hijo del Santo coming out victorious.
The first XLAW show featured a double main event of Sabu vs. Damian 666 and a battle of lucha legends Perro Aguayo and El Hijo del Santo. In Tijuana he feuded with Nicho El Millonario with their feud leading up to a mask vs. hair match at the April 6th show titled “Destino Final”. No surprise El Hijo del Santo won that match.
Late in 2001, El Hijo del Santo faced another rival throughout Mexico. The original La Parka was out to prove he was the best wrestler in Mexico and in 2001, you could make a case that both he and Santo very well could have been the best wrestlers in Mexico that year. Their feud was highlighted by a cage match in Tijuana, but in what might have been the last great match held at Arena Coliseo de Monterrey in December, the two would wrestle in a bloody match. La Parka’s all-white outfit was covered in blood.
In CMLL, El Hijo del Santo had been teaming with long-time rival Negro Casas for the past 3 years. El Hijo del Santo and Negro Casas would win the CMLL World Tag Team Titles from Rey Bucanero and Ultimo Guerrero on November 2nd, 2001, ending a long reign by Ultimo Guerrero & Rey Bucanero. El Hijo del Santo had already long been established as one of the all-time greats, so 2001 was really just added icing to his career.
Here’s El Hijo Del Santo’s match against La Parka from Monterrey…
2002: Ultimo Guerrero & Rey Bucanero – From the moment they formed a tag team, they were instantly one of the best tag teams in the world and were either champions or top challengers to the CMLL World Tag Team Titles for about a 7 year span. They first won the CMLL World Tag Team Titles in a tournament final on August 4th, 2000. Their first reign lasted well over a year and they defended the titles numerous times. They eventually dropped the titles to Negro Casas and El Hijo del Santo in late 2001.
They regained the titles from Casas and Santo on May 31st and once again had another long title reign that went about 11 months. In 2002, the duo had established themselves as a main event caliber tag team. Their trio with Tarzan Boy was highly regarded, but the duo was what really stuck out to most fans. Tarzan Boy always seemed to disappear which allowed Ultimo Guerrero and Rey Bucanero to improve as a unit. It didn’t matter who they faced whether it was El Hijo Del Santo & Negro Casas or former mentor El Satanico w/ new charges Averno & Mephisto or the hardcore team of Damian 666 & Halloween (La Familia de Tijuana/Mexico’s Most Wanted), they had good to great matches.
The team’s near 7 year run was one of the high points of the past 10 years for CMLL. The eventual break-up seemed to take a little out of the two. While both are still headliners, Ultimo Guerrero is viewed as the bigger star of the two right now. Rey Bucanero struggled through injuries since the split, but he has continued to be one of the top wrestlers in CMLL. They were briefly reunited, but the spark was gone and with Ultimo Guerrero having other commitments like being World Champion, teaming with Atlantis and training new talent, it seemed like they were never able to get much going together again. Rey Bucanero has now moved on to being part of the popular faction known as La Peste Negra.
2003: La Wagnermania Runs wild! – Early in his career, Dr. Wagner Jr. was booked more often as part of a trio or tag team and was overshadowed by his brother, Silver King, who earlier in his career was a much better worker. In around 1996, he started getting a better push in CMLL including getting a match against Jushin “Thunder” Liger and beating him. This eventually led to Dr. Wagner Jr. touring with New Japan over a 4-5 year span. That seemed to elevate Dr. Wagner Jr. in fans and wrestling promoters eyes as he started to reach headline status and even got to be one of the guys who would get to do wacky vignettes on CMLL television, like tossing a kitten through a window.
I think Dr. Wagner Jr. really won fans over in 1999 when CMLL put him in with Blue Panther and Black Warrior to form Los Laguneros. Not only was he in there with two of the better workers in CMLL, but the unit was big-time over with fans and it was a period in time when CMLL was just pushing different guys and freshening up their cards. From that point forward really, it was upward for Dr. Wagner Jr. and even when he and several others would mail-in matches on smaller shows or places outside of Mexico City, Doc never really got much of the criticism.
In 2003, CMLL TV was cut pretty short, so there really wasn’t room for everyone. Dr. Wagner Jr. was one of the main guys who did consistently make it on to TV. Doc won the Torneo Gran Prix match that featured a Mexico vs. Japan theme. He had matches against Atlantis, Rayo De Jalisco Jr., Shocker, Heat, and as the year was winding down he’d face El Hijo del Perro Aguayo.
2004: El Hijo del Perro Aguayo in CMLL - Perro Jr. made his way to CMLL in mid-2003 as a tecnico as his dad had teased it in the past that he wanted to see his son wrestle in Arena Mexico. His initial run as a tecnico didn’t run as smoothly as most might think since Perro Jr. despite being a second-generation wrestler had one obstacle he had to get past. He was viewed by many of the die-hard CMLL fans as a “AAA wrestler” and that label usually keeps guys from ever getting over in CMLL. He got a bit of lukewarm reaction from the crowds as a tecnico and by late 2003, he turned rudo and the rest is history as he turned out to be one of the most charismatic and over rudos in Mexico over a 4-5 year span.
Once Hector Garza made the jump to CMLL in mid-2004, the groundwork to one of the more popular rudo factions, Los Perros Del Mal, was part of one of the better periods for the promotion. In many ways, looking back at what Hijo del Perro Aguayo did in 2004 and just how ever he was as a charismatic rudo, it really shows what CMLL is currently missing. While they currently have a group of very good rudos, none really have the type of ‘larger-than-life’ personality that Hijo del Perro had at this time.
2005: Mistico era begins! – While Hijo del Perro Aguayo was becoming the hottest rudo in Mexico, a little lower on the card was a newcomer that was introduced as an ‘orphan’ that was mentored by Fray Tormenta. He was given a religious-heavy storyline to get him over with the Mexican crowd and what resulted was a fast rise to the top of not only the promotion, but one of the top draws in the world. CMLL always big on being a traditional promotion at times lets younger wrestlers stick to long at a lower rung on their cards that they probably shouldn’t, but with Mistico there was no question that they found someone who they could push to the moon and draw money.
He was immediately placed in hot trios matches against top veteran rudos. He won the 2004 Gran Alternativa teaming with lucha legend, El Hijo del Santo. In about 2 months, he was a main-eventer. By early 2005 he was feuding with Averno, the veteran rudo that would guide him through the early stages of working at the top of the card. A formula that CMLL has used for several years and continues to this day. The Averno feud would turn into Mistico’s top rivalry, while the year continued, he would face his other main rival, Ultimo Guerrero, and soon enough a match-up between Mexico’s top tecnico vs. top rudo (Hijo del Perro Aguayo).
While attendance started to slip in some parts of Mexico, bringing in Mistico resulted in significant attendance increase. He’s been the top draw in lucha libre since 2005.
CMLL has attempted numerous times in the past couple of years in creating another Mistico-type superstar. They have followed a similar pattern and if you look at today’s CMLL tecnico side, you’ll find a number of guys who can be considered copies of Mistico. They’ve even used the same formula in elevating the “next Mistico”. Their hope is that at least one catches on fire with the fans and starts another hot run for the promotion similar to what Mistico did in 2005.
2006: The Passing of Antonio Peña – One of the creative minds in pro wrestling passed away on October 5th, 2006 and in many ways remembering Antonio Peña really reminds me what really is wrong in pro wrestling today. Not just in Mexico, but the world in general. There’s really not a lot of creativity coming out lately and there really hasn’t been anything new that fans can really get behind because promoters either don’t follow through or they seek the easy way out (tournaments!) and it ends up becoming another thing fans soon forget.
Peña came up with gimmicks and ideas that anyone who follows lucha can remember. Both the good and the bad. For every great gimmick like Ultimo Dragon, there was a wacky gimmick like the short-lived Los Ice Cream or El Niño de la Calle. While most hardcore fans might dislike the stripper/dancer gimmick, Peña knew that those gimmicks would be popular with females and many times the gimmick would get over. He also had no problem re-packaging a wrestler who had failed in the past with a new mask and gimmick and sometimes that wrestler could extend his career for a few more years. He also was one of the few who booked female and mini luchadores well and while both divisions were practically forgotten by CMLL from the time he left until about 2006, CMLL ended up reviving both divisions and having strong periods featuring them on their TV show.
While almost everyone likes to remember only the glory days of AAA under Antonio Peña, I was always somewhat fascinated by how AAA with so much talent having left in 1996 when Konnan, Rey Misterio Jr., Psicosis, Juvi, La Parka, etc. all went to WCW was able to keep going with wrestlers who were never quite at the level of the ones that departed. They even had a lot of people attending shows that if you looked at the card, you’d be wondering how they did it. It wasn’t that the TV shows were great because a lot of the shows were pretty difficult to watch from a wrestling point of view, but from storyline and from seeing Peña never really give up on an angle it was interesting to watch. Take a trio like Los Barrio Boys that were pretty disliked by most lucha fans, save a few and I could probably name them. People didn’t like them. You’d constantly read negative comments about Los Barrio Boys. Move forward in time and Billy Boy was part of one of the hotter and longer-lasting storylines in recent memory (more on that in a bit), Decnnis joined Los Guapos VIP (later Los Metrosexuales and later on La Militia), and Alan later became Gato Eveready and might be the best all-around performer in AAA.
Just look at some of the other guys who Peña helped turn into stars like Cibernetico, who isn’t a very good worker, but Peña realized he had tons of charisma and could cut a good promo, so he came up with various vignettes and never really over-exposed him in singles matches. Every character that ended up being a part of the show grew step-by-step.
2007: The Apache Family Feud – One of the longer lasting storylines in pro wrestling and probably one that most fans can identify with since we’ve always wanted to hit at least one relative over the head with a a chair. Okay, not that part of the feud, but the family squabble is something that most of us are familiar with.
This storyline idea initially started several years prior to this one, it also involved the Apache Family (Gran Apache & Fabi Apache) except that the first didn’t involve Billy Boy, but Oscar Sevilla. I guess Peña realized no one could believe Fabi would be into Sevilla (or we can just say Fabi was touring Japan back then, but let’s be mean instead!), so that part of the Sevilla-Gran Apache rivalry wasn’t brought to the forefront in the entirety of the feud.
The storyline involving Billy Boy and the Apaches started back in 2005 and kept going through about 2009.
While there are some great moments in this storyline, perhaps the strongest year for the feud came in 2007. The year started with Gran Apache having kidnapped baby Marvin (son of Fabi and Billy Boy) willing to reunite mother-son if Fabi dumps Billy Boy. While this is going on Fabi and Billy Boy are starting to have marriage problems because well, Billy Boy’s a loser and can’t seem to beat his father-in-law. Fabi eventually starts teaming with her father in order to get her son back. Billy Boy meanwhile is consoled by Sexi Star and this doesn’t sit well with Fabi, so she’s okay with beating up on Billy Boy, while he’s not. This eventually leads to Billy Boy getting seriously depressed despite being around Sexi Star. His depression starts annoying his teammates in Los Barrio Boys, Alan and Decnnis, who eventually decide to kick him to the curb. Billy Boy continues to get beat up by his father-in-law and suffers depression that he gets sent to a mental institute. After spending some time in the psych ward, doctors pronounce Billy Boy is healthy, so he returns to action only Fabi Apache’s still pissed at him for being a loser! Billy Boy vows to get his revenge on Gran Apache for stealing his wife and son.
This eventually leads to a masked wrestler named Alfa asking Gran Apache to train him and guide him in his career. Gran Apache agrees and thinks this masked wrestler is not just a fine young man, but would make an ideal husband for his daughter, Fabi, and father to his grandson, Marvin. Gran Apache goes out of his way to get Alfa to meet up with Fabi and then Alfa starts asking her out. This goes on for awhile and finally when Fabi agrees to go out with Alfa, he unmasks to reveal that it was Billy Boy all along. Billy Boy and Fabi reunite and leave Gran Apache disappointed. Gran Apache later brings in his other daughter, Mari Apache, who sides with him in this feud as it continued for what seemed like 2 more years.
The great thing about this feud was that every time you thought it might be over, they found something new to add to it. Eventually the feud would include Billy Boy admitting to having a mistress (Sexi Star) and later the focus was switched to Fabi vs. Sexi Star with Gran Apache being somewhat phased out from the storyline, outside of a few cameos.
2008: CMLL departures of Dr. Wagner Jr. & Hijo del Perro Aguayo; The Birth of Promociones Perros Del Mal – If you want to pick a specific reason as to why CMLL is struggling with attendance and experiencing other problems, you can look no further than 3 major players and their experiences in 2008.
Mistico and Hijo del Perro Aguayo both missed some time due to injuries that year. Hijo del Perro Aguayo was at the peak of his popularity in early 2008 and CMLL most likely was set to have some sort of big match between Perro and Mistico before both guys were sidelined with injuries in mid-2008. There was also some rumors during the summer that the entire Perros Del Mal faction was possibly going independent and open up their own office. With CMLL’s two top stars out, this left Dr. Wagner Jr. as the top star in CMLL and while you would think he’d be happy, he spent about half of 2008 going back and forth complaining about CMLL. Despite CMLL hearing Dr. Wagner Jr’s complaints and also knowing about the Perros Del Mal’s intentions to go independent, CMLL was caught off-guard when both Dr. Wagner Jr. and Hijo del Perro Aguayo left the promotion. CMLL has a habit of being caught off-guard when it comes to talent leaving and this usually results in the promotion spending about 1-2 years trying to create new stars.
Hijo del Perro Aguayo was joined by Damian 666 and Mr. Aguila and they started Promociones Perros Del Mal. They’ve had several wrestlers make their way to the promotion, but it was treated as a pit-stop before deciding whether to join CMLL or AAA. The promotion in its 2 years of existence hasn’t really had much of an impact outside of having cool t-shirts and being more of a vanity project for Hijo del Perro Aguayo, who hasn’t been as good as he was in early 2008. Los Perros Del Mal joined with AAA in a storyline in mid-2010 with PdM being under the umbrella of a larger AAA faction led by Konnan and Dorian Roldan known as “La Sociedad”.
2009: Grumpy Old Men – Thanks to the internet several older wrestlers have a new following as fans can now see their matches via youtube, torrents, or dvds. While some were popular in their heyday there are some who have found more popularity in their 50s than they did in the past.
Every time you think Negro Casas is done, he finds a way to get himself back into a major program and in 2009, he was Mistico’s top rival. On the heels of joining the rudo trio of La Peste Negra, Casas would face Mistico in trios matches. This eventually led to the two facing off for several months. Their first big singles matches occurred early in the year and they were able to stretch their feud out all the way to the anniversary show were Negro Casas eventually dropped his hair to Mistico.
On the independent circuit perhaps no two wrestlers receive more praise for having great matches than Negro Navarro and Black Terry. Navarro part of the famed trio of Los Misioneros de la Muerte is one of the great ‘maestros’ of lucha libre. He and fellow veteran, Solar I, have taken their rivalry to various arenas were they put together an exhibition of old school wrestling. However, no one seems to bring the best out of Navarro like veteran rudo, Black Terry.
While Black Terry was part of another trio early in his career known as Los Temerarios, it wasn’t as popular as some of the trios from the same time or held in the same regard as the trios of Los Brazos, Los Misioneros or Los Infernales. Los Temerarios were more of a second level trio. A very good trio none the less. Black Terry’s combination of old school lucha libre mixed in with brawling has gained him a lot of praise amongst lucha libre’s diehard fans. Working for the IWRG promotion, Black Terry joined Dr. Cerebro and Cerebro Negro to form los Terrible Cerebros, one of the better trios in Mexico. Forming this trio gave fans a chance to see one of the better rivalries as Negro Navarro would team with his sons, Los Traumas in matches against Los Terrible Cerebros.
2010: New Wave of Luchadores Join Mistico! – As I mentioned earlier, CMLL usually has to be ‘forced’ to change as opposed to doing it themselves and over a 2 year span, CMLL went their way into creating new tecnico stars. They’ve basically used Mistico as their template in deciding what they want out of their tecnicos. While some have failed, it appears that CMLL might have found a few who might succeed as the next stars of lucha libre.
Mistico is still rather popular despite being heavily booed in Arena Mexico and there was a brief attempt at having him turn rudo. CMLL got cold feet and killed what looked to be a great idea and judging by Mistico’s comments over the year, may have alienated their top star. Mistico seemed to enjoy being a rudo and as a rudo he showed everything that wrestling really lacks right now, a heel fans would actually pay to see get beat. I wouldn’t be surprised if he asks to make the switch especially if some of the young tecnicos continue to show progress.
Volador Jr., Mistico’s current rival, was the guy who ended up turning rudo and several years back in Nuevo Leon, he had shown he could be a pretty good rudo. He’s a very good worker and has had some really good matches against Mistico and La Sombra. The only problem is that I don’t think he has the level of charisma that Mistico showed in his brief run as a rudo. I think Volador Jr. is closer to the other CMLL rudos and doesn’t really come across as a bigger star than them.
The tecnico that is probably going to take over as the top guy is La Sombra. He’s already shown that he’s an excellent worker having had a great match against Volador Jr. and also showing that he can have good matches with a diverse group of wrestlers. He’s already impressed more in Japan as well. He was also given the two biggest wins of 2010 in CMLL having won mask matches at the Dos Leyendas card in March (Felino) and the Anniversary show in September (Olimpico).
Mascara Dorada is the other guy who’s in the mix. Every time he steps into the ring I expect something that’s going to just surprise me. He’s one of the best high flyers in the world and continues to get better.
There are also a slew of other tecnicos like Hijo del Fantasma, La Mascara (who’d have thunk it!), Valiente, Stuka Jr. and younger guys like Delta, Diamante, Angel de Oro, Angel de Plata all looking to join the mix.

Par-K/Zorro – Okay this was a total cluster as Cibernetico was supposed to be come out in the 5th spot but he didn’t show up so Dorian Roldan showed up on the big screen saying that Ciber was with them and brought out a masked man wearing a Bizarros shirt who walked to ringside to watch the match. Octagon then was supposed to be the 7th man but he couldn’t compete due to his injuries after being attacked by a mysterious man in an alley so Joaquin Roldan brought out Cuervo & Ozz to replace Ciber & Octagon in the match. Octagon did come out with Joaquin and it wasn’t long before the mysterious masked man showed up on his motorcycle to join the match so Cibernetico finally appeared to make the save and helped Parka eliminate Hernandez to win the match. Ciber and the mysterious Bizarro then entered the ring and celebrated with Team AAA after the match.
