forgot to fix the date. oh well.

LATV was a rerun.

Next Week: I forgot I still had old GALLI (last fall-ish, or maybe from the fall before it) still sitting on my TiVo, so I might as well rip it and post here before I delete it. Some pre-IWRG Gringo Loco and pre-random-DGUSA-appearance Samuari del Sol.

Arena Mexico, 08/15/2010

Dalys la Caribeña, Luna Mágica, Marcela vs Amapola, Mima Shimoda, Princesa Blanca: Hey, so, another women’s match with the same crew. I would appreciate if they did a women’s feud so I have something to talk about for these. Mima dressing up in her Hiroka cosplay outfit only half counts.

Rush vs Loco Max in a hair match: CMLL’ handling of these shows is worse than the main show. All CMLL TV is produced with the idea that most of the people watching that show are not watching any other show, that’s why so many interview bits get reshown on multiple shows. If that’s your strategy, how can one feud start on one show and end on another? Maybe it’s just because I’m always in this for the stories more than anything else, but this is worse to me than what the do with the Televisa show.

This was a nice heroic match for Loco Max, which perhaps wasn’t the idea.

Previously, Ultimo Guerrero taunted Shocker about bringing his father as his second every time they do this title match (which UG always wins), and dared him to bring his mom this time. Shocker’s Mom did show up, buying a ticket for the front row. Ultimo Guerrero demanded she be ejected from the building before he would wrestle, but she had a ticket and the commission rep (Vick Amezcua, the original Septiembre Negro) refused to move her. After all that, Shocker won the first fall, but UG took the last two, including the Guerrero Special in the third fall.

Dorian Roldan says AAA will air 4-6 on Sundays starting September 12, and CMLL will move to another day. Hopefully, 4pm gives them enough of a buffer from the end of the 3pm (CT) NFL game so they’re not bumped/shortened along the way. I presume this means CMLL returns to Saturday.

Luna Magica tells Fuego en el Ring that she’s only 50% of what she was before leaving to have her most recent child, but hopes to get to 100%.

El Pancracio has interviews with Puebla’s Tarahumara, Nitro and Mini Nitro, Alebrije hyping his match with Canek, and Coalaco indy Chicago Rush, who, of course, is wearing a Chicago Bears Pro Bowl jersey.

Cronicas Y Leyendas looks back at the UWA rudo trio of Gigante Warrior, Buffalo Allen and Kokina.

PWTorch has a recap of the Lucha Libre USA (season) finale. Think mine will be up Tuesday.
