05/23-24 Lucha Times


AAA-US: Listed as 2h30m right now. Last taping before the flu shutdown, with the four way for the title shot at TripleMania, Jack/Tiger (take one) and the Clowns, the minis, and the power of the north back on TV.

52MX: Maybe the minis match and Pesta Negra vs Mistico/Garza/Sagrado

LATV/FOX: we all find out together who won the tercera on Sunday, since they still haven’t put it up. I bet this the week the actually start the tag title program! Also, Guerreros vs Avernos continue the 100% success rate of the ‘if a wrestler bought a ticket to sit in the front row, he’s getting into a fight’ axiom.


CMLL: 3pm start, top 3. Look, Poder Mexica together (against two of the trios champs, hmm.)

AAA-MEX: Tapings resume with the cruiserweight semifinals, and maybe a surprise appearance.

C3: Guerreros vs Avernos. Sensing a pattern. Enjoy Hijo del Sicodelico’s debut.

Tuesday Mexico Results, Puma/Tiger

CMLL (TUE) 05/19 Arena Mexico [ESTO, Cesar]
1) Bengala & Molotov b Cholo & Zayco
2) Electrico, Shockercito, Ultimo Dragoncito b Pequeno Damian 666, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito
3) Flash, Hijo del Sicodelico, Stuka Jr. b Euforia, Nosferatu, Virus
4) Felino, Lizmark Jr., Mr. Niebla b La Sombra, Maximo, Volador Jr.
5) Ephesto, Terrible, Texano Jr. b Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Ultimo Guerrero

Ephesto’s side won in straight falls, Ephesto pinning Rey directly in the second with his cradle reversal. He made the mask/hair challenge one more time.

Shockercito pinned Damian again, though Damian might have had the ropes. Shockercito made a hair match challenge there too. That sounds more like a Tuesday Fan Appreciation Day’s match.

Ovaciones has an interview with the Tiger Kid and Puma King, who are still saying they’re sons of brothers of the wrestling Casas. The interview also has Tiger Kid saying he’s wrestled for 2 years, which is demonstratively not true (real debut looks to be 2004) so dunno. Then again, they could’ve just meant CMLL debut. Anyway, these cats would like a shot at the Arena Coliseo Tag Team titles. Sounds good to me.

The Santo returns to AAA story got picked up by newswires. AAA has to be happy with the reaction this is getting. For it’s part, AAA looks back at Santo’s first run with the company.
