It’s not listed on the website, but a Box Y Lucha poster (unhappily) mentions they’ll moving these shows to 12:30 pm starts (currently 6:30pm.) A follow up clarifies that it’s to avoid running against Chivas games.

CMLL and NJPW announced this morning that IWGP Heavyweight Champion Hiroshi Tanahashi will return to Arena Mexico. He’ll arrive in Mexico on August 22. There’s no set return date, but he’s scheduled to be back on the September 12 NJPW show. That probably means Tanahashi works the Friday shows on 08/24, 08/31, and 09/07 and random shows in between.

Rob has a big Aero Star headscissors and 07/04/1992 AAA highlights.


  • The Gladiatores interviews Skayde, who’s upset with Angel de Oro stealing his move, among other people.
  • Hooligan is back in Arena Olimpico Laguna this Thursday.
  • Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. says Dr. Wagner will have to have a new career unmasked.
  • AULL would like to be on TV and have it’s own YouTube channel. I think they can do one of those.
