Princesa Sugehit in CMLL

What’s the story?

Mexican Luchadora Princesa Sugehit recently lost her mask in a Lucha de Apuestas match and had to reveal her face to the world.

In case you didn’t know…

This past Saturday, CMLL held their 84th anniversary show, and the card featured many big names such as Marco Corleone, Diamante Azul, Volador Jr, Flip Gordon, Satoshi Kojima and Princesa Sugehit.

Princesa Sugehit also recently took part in the inaugural Mae Young Classic. The former CMLL Reina International champion defeated Scotland’s Kay Lee Ray in the first round and made it to the second round, where she was eliminated by Mercedes Martinez.

The current Mexican National Women’s champion has been in many Lucha de Apuestas matches throughout her career and had collected the masks of Goddess, La Seductora, Dark Angel and Pantera Salvaje.

The heart of the matter

On 16th September, 2017 at the CMLL 84th Anniversary show Princesa Sugehit faced off against current CMLL Reina International champion Zeuxis, in a mask vs mask match. The two women faced each other in a two-out-of-three falls match, where the loser had to give up their mask and reveal their face.

During the match, Zeuxis had the support of Negro Navarro and Shocker was in the corner of Sugehit. Sugehit scored the first fall of the match via a huracanrana, Zeuxis got the second fall after she hit a bridging cradle and finally Zeuxis got the last laugh when she caught Sugehit with the Spanish fly and got the third fall.

Zeuxis’ victory meant that she had won Sugehit’s mask and the 37-year-old was forced to take it off in front of almost 16,000 fans at the Arena Mexico. Sugehit’s loss also meant that she became the first women to lose her mask in a CMLL Anniversary show.

After taking off her mask Sugehit revealed herself as Ernestina Sugehit Salazar Martinez, who has been part of the sport for almost 21 years.


What’s next?

Sugehit, who signed with CMLL back in 2005, is currently the Mexican National Women’s champion. As of right now, it doesn’t seem like she will sign with WWE, but however, that still remains a possibility for the future because of her inclusion in the Mae Young Classic.

Author’s take

It is always hard to witness a Luchador or Luchadora lose his or her mask, but it is all part of the sport. As for Princesa Sugehit, the best decision for her now would be to stay in Mexico for some time.

WWE may decide to bring her to the company, much like they did with Andrade Cien Almas who lost his mask two years back at the 82nd CMLL Anniversary show. But for Sugehit, she currently holds a prestigious title in Mexico and will likely defend it later this year; if she loses the championship then she might show up at NXT by 2018.
