== AAA ==

AAA-Televisa: what’s left from Naucalpan – minis, Rockers vs Oficials, and Chessman/Texano vs Mesias/Vampiro

AAA-Fusion: more from the Garza show. There hasn’t been a next one announced as of yet, which means this could be planned for three weeks. Right now, I’m guessing DTU’s three tag match and Consejo vs Perros

== CMLL ==

Galavision/Televisa: The Friday night shows are rough to predict this week, but easier for the next couple weeks. I’m going to guess Copa Junior airs here + the short segunda to fill out the time. Update: the early evening repeat is pre-empted for no particular reason, but the late night show is still listed

FOX: would be left with the Puma/Cometa trios (is Puma/Cometa feud of the year?) and random midcard Averno/Rojo/Escorpion vs Atlantis/Shocker/Titan

52MX: Sombra vs Terrible!

C3: Guerreros vs Revolucionarios, Valiente gets himself a feud, and maybe a segunda feud.

GDL: build to Angel de Oro vs Negro Casas + more Cometa vs Puma and Tuareg vs Cancerberos

EstrellaTV (Puebla): Sombra vs Terrible!

El Luchador: “The luchadors will have to do their best in their last mission under the watchful gaze of el Consejo. Shocker receives a surprise visit and reflects on his life amid fears he has for his next meeting with Mr. Niebla. The stars turn in favor of Dragon Lee, but pride stands in the way of his success. Princesa Blanca’s absence affects Felino’s health and he considers retirement.”

En Busca de un Idolo: Euforia vs Triton & Dragon Lee vs Niebla Roja in what should be the final opening round matches.

I haven’t talked enough about this show, but the one thing really stands out to me is something never shown – there’s no on screen mentions of standings or how everyone is doing in the overall competition, just the judges scores shown and the one flash of the score total in the post-match debriefing. There’s no sense of anything but the result of the previous match. It really stuck out to me after Titan’s loss last week; we knew he was probably getting thru because of the voting points, but Atlantis was reacting like it ws a crushing loss. There still is time for Polvora confronting Tirantes on the toliet. It’s not the biggest problem – the biggest problem are the people being spotlighted are being spotlighted for being failures (Polvora & Puma) and Tirantes claiming no one looks shouldn’t come off as accurate – but if the concept of the show is a competition some wins, shouldn’t we know who’s ahead? (No one’s watching this show, it scarcely matters, but it does speak to a systematic problem with CMLL – who’s winning?)

Neither of the reality shows are doing much for making stars out of the key participants. Even the Blanca/Estrellita feud has been way played down outside of the one early episode – they made a point of saying Blanca hated all the tecnicas and not just any one in particular in the lead up to the cage match. (That bit with Blanca & Tiffany being evil women to the tecnicas was great though.) Bucanero’s arc ending and being written out of the show completely with 3 episodes left was peculiar, but the whole way it’s gone has not been so positive. The one feud that’s being pushed strongly is Mr. Niebla vs Shocker, and CMLL doesn’t seem to want to do that in any fashion.

Terra: a really strong show; Marcela vs Amapola, Invasors vs Atlatnida being highlights but other matches not being too bad either.

== Other ==

IWRG-TVC Deportes: Angel vs Eterno, the Terry/Navarro/Pirata vs Solar/Astro/Ultraman rematch

IWRG-AYM Sports: AFAIK, the final AYM show that’ll air in the US – it’s going away Wednesday. (I feel like I’ve mentioned this often but still will get asked about it for the next month.) Another Oficials vs Comando match, another Angel & Trauma II team up and Piratas/Trauma I vs Junior Dinamitas/Wagner

ACM: this show has gone random, no point in guessing.

  1. @thecubsfan: I should have just come out and said it the other day instead of ranting about the Galavision logo and wondering about possible changes at the net. They’ve cut a few shows like Se Vale but they’re adding lots of Televisa Regional shows
