10/25-26 Lucha Times


AAA-US: Cibernetico vs Chessman vs Mesias, ending option. The Circus meets the Legion, Elctro meets Super Fly. This should be a 2h30m show, but it’s listed right now as 3h00m.

52MX: Rey/Hector title match, Guerreros/Pesta vs tecnicos

FSE: Infernales vs high flyers, Panther vs Villanos. Due to World Series Game 4, this won’t be airing until early Monday morning in most locals (and it might be a smart idea to tape an hour or two extra.)

CMLL-MEX: Laguernas vs Villanos and Lagunernas vs Perros

AAA-MEX: Cibernetico & Zorro vs Chessman & Mesias, ending optional.

CTres: tecnicos vs Guerreros/Pesta

CMLL 52MX GdR #133 (06/08)

taped 05/30 & 06/01, aired 06/08

Really good show, best of this batch.

Women’s trios had the 6 of the best workers in the division working super-hard for Lady Apache’s return, and everything looked sharp. Apache looked like she didn’t miss a single day, everyone else was looking excellent. Crowd was way into this, as they should.

Main event was more comedy or anything, but actually fun and inspired comedy as opposed to time killing stuff. Some of this was Park doing his usual touring match, but he and Warrior worked well enough off each other that I’m disappointed not to get more of this, and the shenanigans with the fake LA Park were all fun.

26 minutes of wrestling! Impossible but true.

3) Negro Navarro vs Black Terry [SALVADOR AMERICA]

Villanos plans: retire Blue Panther, unmask Ultimo Guerrero. They’re pretty sure Ultimo Guerrero wants to lose his mask, that’s why he’s picked this fight.

Arturo Rivera’s column touches on the exchange rates affecting AAA’s use of foreign wrestlers; he says AAA should continue gambling on them, because Jack & Teddy have worked out well and sold much product.

Sangre Azteca has no more idea what’s going on with Guerreros del Atlantida than you do. Though he probably needs to know a bit more. “Gray Shadow was pure blah blah blah.” SoloLuchas also profiles Ultraman Sr.

El Hijo del Santo did an interview to promote his new store. The people around his neighborhood are aware of his double identity; it’s tough to keep it a mystery when you have someone else clean your masks.

Noticias-Oax.com has a profile of long time local wrestler Challenger, including a couple crazy photos.
