Well, lucha-wise.

LATV has picked up the Guerreros del Ring episode which used to air on Fox Sports Espanol. Check their website for availability.  Airings are 7pM EST on Saturday and Sunday, and maybe Wednesdays at 11. Your cable guide listing may not have this show listed yet, but it’s there. The hope(/worry) is LATV won’t start airing reruns (as they do for Ras de Lona) or randomly move it around (as FSE did.)

The 52MX version of this show is still only on that channel, which means the minis cage match may be lost to the wind. Unlike FSE, LATV is airing the same episode the same week as airs in Mexico, so this week was the Blanca ruda turn, Euforia/Stuka and Sombra/Volador/Mistico vs Niebla/Bucanero/Warrior, and next week is Warrior/Mistico.

AAA aired a Best of on Galavision (US) today

It wrapped up with TripleMania, clearly part 1 of 2. Besides illuminating that the period just before, thru, and after Rey de Reyes was the company’s creative peak for the year, this means Xalapa and Chilpancingo got one week of tapings each, and Accion was confusing the issue with it’s highlights. I was right when I started guessing, less so after.

They also got their 2h30m timeslot back in the US.

AAA announced their upcoming tapings (last week)

I’m slow. This was on their TV show.

  • 01/25 – Salamanca
  • 01/31 – Plaza de Toros Joan Sebstian, Chalco, EdM

Next Week’s CMLL Lineups

CMLL (TUE) 01/20 Arena Mexico
1) Ángel Azteca Jr. & Molotov vs Carrona & Cholo
2) Astro Boy, Metálico, Sensei vs Calígula, Hooligan, Méssala
3) Máscara Púrpura, Máximo, Mictlán vs Euforia, Nosferatu, Skandalo
4) La Máscara, La Sombra, Sagrado vs Black Warrior, Dragon Rojo Jr., Sangre Azteca
5) Averno, Mephisto, Villano III vs Blue Panther, Mark Corleone, Místico

Poder Mexica looking to extend their Arena Mexico streak, and since we’re making a deal of it, they stand a good shot. Main event is obvious V3/Panther stuff. Romanos making allllll the way up to the second match!

CMLL (FRI) 01/23 Arena Mexico
1) Calígula & Méssala vs Sombra de Plata & Starman
2) Hiroka, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sujei vs Dark Angel, Marcela, Sahori
3) Pegasso vs Súper Comando
4) Euforia, Nosferatu, Virus vs Flash, Stuka Jr., Valiente
5) Averno, Lizmark Jr., Mephisto vs Blue Panther, Dos Caras Jr., Héctor Garza
6) Heavy Metal, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas vs La Sombra, Místico, Volador Jr.

Pesta Negra, actually teaming up. I hope this is another win for this tecnico trio – they may actually be establishing a set tecnico team. Dos Caras going back to dealing with Lizmark is fine for me (except to watch it.) Look, Flash & Stuka fighting Euforia & Nosferatu, a shocking turn of events. Pegasso vs Super Comando could be really good. Does Blanca make the challenge this week?

LATV actually aired a new episode of Ras de Lona this week

Of course, it’s covering everything up to last week’s cage match, but better.

If you ever wanted to know exactly how much the heavyweight title means to this promotion, it’s given a ten second still picture summary, after interviews with Cosmico (third string mini), Sensei (novato! hurt and no one knew!), and Arkangel (theorizing about a tecnico turn.)

Definite proof of Mr. Niebla starts at the 9:34 mark in the first video.

This one features Sangre’s awesome outfit.
