In this column, we will look at news and notes about the Latin American wrestling scene!
Peruvian Dreammatch. After some friction on past events of the Peruvian promotion Gladiadores, Mansilla (The Danzak Wrestler) will face his master, Apocalipsis (Perú’s Most Valuable Mask), on a much-anticipated match at Danzak Arena. Also, this show has already confirmed its official card.
It’s on. The Chilean wrestler Ariel Levy will cash his FNX Main Title opportunity against Pedro Pablo Subercaseaux on the show La Revancha 2019.
They are back. Sándwiches & Luchas, the sandwich-based show created and managed by the Chilean wrestler Perfecto Bundy will be back soon, as we learned from his social media posts.
2 belts on the line. Zenshi visited South America once again and made a successful defense of his LWA International Championship against Taylor Wolf and Addam Jones on the promotion NGEN. But he couldn’t keep his CLL All-Stars Championship against the Chilean wrestler Mr. Keyton, who finished Zenshi’s 1995-day reign.
Another week on Club Chocolate. CNL published another episode of their weekly web series, where we could meet the 1st and 30th entrants of the Royal Battle they will host next week. We also could see a confrontation between CNL’s National Champion, Engranaje Jack, and his #1 contender, Ariel Levy.
Can he keep the good run? Owen became 5 Luchas Clandestino’s 2019 Lightweight Tournament winner, but after that, he was challenged by Ignacio “El Gallo” Hernández to a match, to get revenge for the one time that Owen unmasked him. The no-DQ match and all the show is available here. (Guanchulo/Diego from DDT’s stable All Out, is one half of the commentary team).
Uncensored rematch. This week, 5 Luchas Clandestino will present the rematch between Sexualizer and Black Cambodian Warrior. Unlike their previous match, which was presented on a suitable for everyone show, they will now perform on a conventional show which has a +18 rating. Both wrestlers have a very sexual-influenced style, so no censorship will limit their styles this time.
New championship on the horizon! The USA-based Peruvian wrestler Eddie Blas will be part of the Warehouse Wars Championship Tournament. There, Eddie will face Saul Esparza, JB Junior, Rico Diamante, Chris Kushnir, “Millennial” Michael Flack, Jacob Judd and Sean Raymond.
Debut on CMLL! The Mexico-based Chilean wrestler Stephanie Vaquer was presented as one of the 20 female wrestlers that will compete in the Amazonas Tournament on the Arena México, for the legendary Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre.
The Warboy keeps fighting. The Chilean wrestler Dalsano was part of a triple threat title match in Toronto, against Jude Dawkins and the MPW Heavyweight Champion Shaun Martens. Dalsano fought hard, even connected his enzuigiri on Martens, but he was surprised with a Canadian destroyer followed by a cobra clutch wich KO’d him and ended his belt aspirations.
