AYM Sports actually lists the IWRG show for Sunday!. Well, a “lucha libre” show, and starting at 6:30 pm CT, a half hour earlier than listed. And it’s not on the US listings at all. We’ll find out on Sunday.

If it’s accurate, that means there will be two live shows from the great Mexico City area going head to head. All fifty us who could watch either will be mightly conflicted.

In more random news, the Galavision repeat is back on Saturday/Sunday overnight.

=== CMLL ===

Galavision/Televisa: Rush/Terrible as we know, and probably not much else. Leaves time for more commericals!

FOX: Puma King/Rey Cometa and probably Mistico/Devitt/Atlantis vs Ultimo Guerrero/Dragon Rojo/Negro Casas

52MX: The tag title match, and more Devitt/Dragon Rojo

C3: Mephisto/Ephesto/Misterioso vs Tiger/Atlantis/Mistico.

GDL: the Olimpico vs Diamante match you’ve been asked for. (And if you have, please reveal yourself.)

EstrellaTV (Puebla): who knows

Terra: Azul/Marco/Devitt vs Bucanero/Terrible/Volador main evnets.

=== Other ===

AAA: onto the expo! Electroshock & Vampiro face Chessman & Ultimo Gladiador, and Cibernetico & Dr. Wagner Jr. take on Perro Aguayo Jr. & Halloween. Regional matches include the TV debut of Samurai del Sol, Dinastia, and a Consejo vs Psycho Circus trios title match

IWRG-TVC Deportes: the show going on right now, with the Navarros on opposite sides of a relevos increibles match.

IWRG-AYM Sports: the show going on Sunday, with a relevos suicidas. That’s not a bad debut show.

ACM: maybe last week’s taping, featuring Antifaz, Hator, and Super Parka vs Neurosis, Humberto Garza and Zorro

Marcela keeps her title, Anniversary matches on TV, Hiroka retiring

CMLL (MON) 09/17/2012 Arena Puebla [Cinco Radio, CMLL Gaceta, Porra Fresa]
1) Asturiano, Black Tiger, Lestat b Akron, Espiritu Maligno, King Jaguar
Tecnicos took 1/3.
2) Súper Comando b Stigma [lightning]
Comando with a slight upset win.
3) Arkángel de la Muerte, Nitro, Skándalo b Molotov, Pegasso, Starman
Straight falls for rudos.
4) Misterioso Jr., Pólvora, Virus b Delta, Fuego, Guerrero Maya Jr.
All straight falls for the rudos. Fuego eliminated Virus in the second, but Virus tripped him up from outside to set up a Misterioso pinfall. Fuego demanded a rematch with Virus.
5) Marcela b Amapola [CMLL WOMEN]
Marcela came in as champion and worked thru a knee injury. Seconds were Skandalo and Stigma. She took falls 2/3 to keep the title. Announced as her sixth defense, though only five are known. Best title match of the Marcela title defenses here (Princesa Sugieth, Seductora)
6) La Sombra, Prince Devitt, Shocker DQ Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Taichi
Tecnicos take 2/3, Niebla fouling Devitt. Bad match. Shocker was way out of it and the crowd let him know they weren’t happy. Sombra tried.

CMLL announced Rush vs Terrible will air on Televisa/Galavision, while Puma King vs Rey Cometa will air on Fox Sports. Rob notes there’s probably not enough time to air a second match; it’s either a one match show, or they’ll be pulling in a lightning match from a previous show. That would mean the Mistico match airs on Fox Sports. (And just like that, half my work tonight is done.)

Hiroka, who left CMLL in 2010 to have kids, has now said she’s officially retired and is selling her gear and is selling her gear on Demus’ Facebook page.
