CMLL TV is a quandary this week. CMLL Gaceta said they wouldn’t air the Juicio Final *show* for six months, but there’s not a lot of other options for unaired Friday TV shows. Rob brought up going back to the 01/01 Reyes del Air show, but that show was main evented by Mistico, who no longer exists and will not be shown on TV if they can at all help it. Same thing with last year’s Anniversary show – Mistico is in the cage match, plus Charly Manson is in the semimain. CMLL will never show either of those matches.

I would like them just to go 2/3/4 (women’s match added on) from Rey del Aire, just because that’s a fun match to see. I’m betting they actually just end up airing Juicio Final despite saying they wouldn’t – they’ll just skip the main event.

AAA US is still off US TV this week, and is not on the schedule next week. This should really be a bigger story than it’s been, but doesn’t seem to have escaped this blog at all.

In Mexico, AAA returns to Sunday – but appears to be back on Saturday next week.


52MX: La Mascara vs Averno in trios

LATV: maybe they’ll pick up with the episode they missed? Maybe they’ll air three weeks of reruns? That seems much more LATV’s way.

TF: been going 3 matches for the last couple of weeks, so Demus vs Electrico might slip thru here.

CMLL-GALA: Metro/Stuka vs Okumura/Yoshihashi, TRT vs Porky/Fantasma/Valiente and Sombra/Rush/STrong vs Mephisto/Niebla/Nakamura

AAA: second half of Naucalpan: Team IWRG vs Milicia (AAA Trios losers bracket?), Argos/Elegido vs Alan/Decnnis and Perros vs Bizarros in what might have been Perro Jr.’s last match for the foreseable future.

FOX: I’m much more certain this channel will get the Forjando un Idolo matches; those things won’t matter in six months and have been airing here consistently.

C3: Bucanero vs Fantamsa for the NWA LH belt.

Mega6: La Mascara vs Mephisto in trios

Puebla: La Mascara vs Averno in trios.

Monterrey: no idea. The Copa Puma de Plata match?

Perros: No idea.

IWRG: the show that just happened a couple hours ago.

  1. I really hope AAA comes back on in the US soon! I got into it last year, and have been checking out this very helpful website ever since. I’ve tried watching CMLL, but it does nothing for me. AAA brings the crazy larger than life luchadors to my TV. Anybody got any news on this at all?

  2. @BC: Your statements regarding AAA and CMLL were exactly what I used to say up until 4 years ago. If you had seen AAA when it was at it’s best (up until 2006) and saw it now you would be very turned off.

    If you really want to watch it you can watch online. Cubs has a link to a televisa station (among others) here on his site. Just check the schedule and click on the link. All the links are on the right hand side under STREAMS/CHANNELS.

    To make it easier for you I’ll give you the link to televisa so you can watch AAA.
