10/04-05 Lucha Times

chart. FWIW, I’ve got three or four recaps that are 90% done. Just need to find time for the extra ten percent.

AAA-US: the Pachuca taping I never got results for! I’m sure I could look around somewhere to find out, but I can just be surprised on Saturday (or whenever I get to this.) Who knows how long this’ll turn out to be either. Last week’s show changed from 2h00m to 2h30m sometime between Wednesday and Saturday. This show is listed with three different lengths:

2h30m for the Saturday Afternoon Eastern (main) feed airing
2h00m for the Saturday Afternoon Western (alt) feed airing and the Saturday/Sunday overnight airing
3h00m for the Sunday Afternoon airing

Fox Sports: More with Tony/Loco. Who do you root for when Pesta Negra faces Los Perros?

On FSE, this show starts getting bounced around next weekend to accomadate the MLB Playoffs.

52MX: the Metalik/Faraon/Stuka opener should be interesting. Tecs vs Guerreros in the main. I hear nothing about this show anymore, but I did update it with the correct air times finally.


CMLL-MEX: first, let’s note that for at least the third straight week, the listings on http://www.esmas.com/galavision/ don’t work. I’d guess they’ve just abandoned that site in favor of , but there’s no listings for anything but fubtol on that page. So, again, I’m using the TV Guide.com‘s listings. That’s more interesting for the AAA show. This show is 2 hours long, so top 3 including Panther vs the Guerreros.

AAA-MEX: You know how we’ve been wondering “Will people actually watch five straight hours of wrestling on Galavision Mexico every Sunday?” Well, I’m here to tell you they most definitely will not.

AAA’s show has been shortened to 2 hours, and looks to be running from 5-7. It may be a one week thing, but I wouldn’t count on it. I wonder what’s going to go down here when RAW runs it’s next 3 hour show (November.)

CTres: more Sujei/Goddess, Sombra/Marco/Sagrado vs Averno/Terrible/Texano.

10/01: Mexico, Coliseo lineup, links


CMLL (TUE) 09/30 Arena Mexico [ESTO]
2) Bronco III, Loco Max, Nitro b Flash, Metálico, Sensei
3) Goddess, Lady Apache, Sahori DQ Amapola, Hiroka, Princesa Sujei
4) Damián 666, Misterioso II, Mr. Águila b Axel, Máximo, Valiente
5) La Sombra, Marco Corelone, Sagrado b Averno, Terrible, Texano Jr.

Sombra replaced Alex. Good to see Valiente is alive.

Goddess snuck a pinfall on Sujei in the first fall, then took it in two after excssive violence. After the match, Goddess and Sujei agreed to a mask match. No date has been specified but ESTO guesses 10/13. You know, I’m pretty sure Sujei’s going to win, and wouldn’t be surprised if Goddess did end up being dropped by CMLL and returning to Canada. However, Sujei’s comments about this feud doens’t do her any favor – either she beats a joke and who cares, or she loses to a joke and looks bad. El Hijo del Santo made this point last week, you’re only as good as the people you beat so ripping your opponents is ripping yourself.

That said, Goddess noting her special ability to demask Canadians is hilarious.

Ovaciones notes Dragon Rojo Jr. in Los Campeones de la Lucha Libre (Notimex writes about the plot) and Tony vs Loco for this Sunday. That reminds me, we need an updated card for Sunday:

CMLL (SUN) 10/05 Arena Coliseo
1) Metálico & Tigre Blanco vs Arkangel & Hooligan
2) Fabián el Gitano, Leono, Stuka Jr. vs Ephesto, Vangelis, Virus
3) Grey Shadow, Sagrado, Volador Jr. vs Damián 666, Mephisto, Mr. Águila
4) Tony Rivera vs Loco Max [hair]
5) Blue Panther, Dos Caras Jr., Dr. Wagner Jr. vs Atlantis, Black Warrior, Mr. Niebla

OFF: Halcon Negro, Satanico, La Sombra
ON: Arkangel, Hooligan, Sagrado

Dr. Wagner Jr. has better thing to do then be Blue Panther’s backup against the Villanos. Dr. Wagner = kind of a jerk.

Lizmark Jr. wants Marco Corelone’s hair.

Juarez may be closing Gimnasio Neri Santos, the local lucha libre arena.

Someone named Abismo Negro is wrestling tonight in Aguacalientes tonight. Then again, they’ve got X-Pac as a rudo so who knows how old this lineup is.

Tiffany is listed as working this Saturday. Then again, again!, they list Charly Manson this weekend, and that’s wrong. Also, no building for that show. Just somewhere, someplace in Mexico City, there will be Crazy Boy. Be on the lookout.

LuchandoLibre has notes, photos and videos from the CMLL Mexico City Museum exhibit. SuperLuchas has the details on how much it costs you to get in ($2US, free on Wednesday and Sundays.)

SoloLuchas writes a profile of Bestia Magnificia, talks about the Morenos as mixed tag champs and gives away tickets to the NWA Mexico show. They’re not the only one, though these are only 5 tickets per site – just enough to get some press for the show.

Wagnermania has Marco/Dos/Mascara vs Pesta Negra and Panther vs Perros. Rey-Del-Martinete @ El Martiente has the ladder/tag title match from Verano de Escandalo. I need to start linking to Lover-Ice’s stuff.

I’m honestly very afraid that one year from now I will not be able to distinguish between ANY of these GdR episodes
