Despite Sarita (Dark Angel, Sarah Stock) having a really good time in TNA (she and Taylor Wilde are the TNA Knockout Tag Team Champions) it doesn't look like the luchadoras in Mexico are getting much of a push.
I was really hoping that Sarita would stir a little more interest in the female wrestlers of Lucha Libre.
But looking back at the major Mexican promotions so far this year, that doesn't to have seemed to happened.
Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA), held their Rey de Reyes (King of Kings) tournament back on March 15, 2009.
The AAA Reina de Reinas (Queen of Queens) tournament is usually held around the same time, but so far, they haven't had one yet.
The last one was on May 28, 2008 and was won by Faby Apache.
At AAA's Triplemania XVII, there were no luchadoras matches, although Billy Boy, Sexy Star, Polvo de Estrellas, and Mini Abismo Negro took on El Elegido, Faby Apache, Pimpinela Escarlata, and Octagoncito in an Eight Person "Atómicos" Tag Team match and won.
At Verano de Escandalo on August 21, 2009, again there was no luchadora match, but Fabi Apache, Sexy Star, Billy Boy and Aero Star were all involved in a Luchas de Apuestas, Steel Cage "hair/mask" match which Billy Boy lost.
At Heroes Inmortales III, Faby Apache will defend her Reina de Reinas Championship against Sexy Star in a "Bull Terrier" match.
Over at Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) the luchadoras didn't fair much better.
At Homenaje a Dos Leyendas on March 20, 2009, there were no luchadoras.
Infierno en del Ring 2009 on July 31, 2009 no luchadoras.
BUT, at the CMLL 76th Anniversary Show held on September 18, 2009 in Arena Mexico, Mexico City, amazingly Dark Angel herself showed up and teamed with Lady Apache to take on and defeat La Amapola and Hiroka in a tag team match.
