box. This isn’t on the list, but Tercera Caida has been moved to Saturday again this week, airing at 9:30 AM.

== AAA ==

AAA-Televisa: Last week’s episode shows clips of the opener from Irapuato, so that and the trios title match. It seems like the newest pattern is to show a third match only on the UTDN show (on Thursdays) – maybe that’ll be the Apaches/Atomic Boy match?

AAA-Fusion: Today’s episode – show seems to be moved to Thursdays – showed both Fusion tournament matches so far. If AAA is announcing the Rey de Reyes card next week (good chance!) and if the Fusion tournament final is on Rey de Reyes (unclear chance!), then they’d probably want to air the other two four ways as soon as possible, and this week’s episode gave the impression that would be next week.

Galavision/Televisa: Namajague/Okumura vs Stuka/Cometa is a Televisa feud, lightning match usually ends up here too, and the Tuareg match always oddly ends up here too. I wonder if guys get paid differently based on which network airs their matches; that would start to explain some choices.

FOX: This seems to be the Volador/Sombra show, and the main event ends up here by default. Fox Deportes US has updated it’s schedule – it looks like every episode of this show will air, but almost never on Saturdays. Some episodes will air on Sundays, some episodes will be pushed to the following Friday. (That’s the deal with the episode airing this Friday, it’s the Sombra vs Volador final which aired in Mexico last Saturday.)

52MX: set up for the Arena Coliseo debut, Mistico’s debut.

C3: Everything airs but the lighting match. Sangre Neuva Block A is the highlight.

GDL: Feed was working Thursday night. They did not air a new episode and may be out of order now, but the usual taping has Averno/Mephisto/Terrible vs Maximo/Shocker/Thunder in the main event, and more of the Cometa/Stuka vs Namajague/Okumura feud.

TVC Deportes (Puebla): Astral vs Olimpico for the minis title, Sombra/Mistico/Thunder vs Kraneo/Psicosis/Volador. The early Monday morning replay seems to be canceled here.

Terra: Arena Coliseo Tag Tema title match, Atlantis/Azul/Mistico vs Niebla/Dragon/Averno.

IWRG-AYM Sports: Latin American Sports, a sister network of AYM Sports, lists Lucha Libre on Sunday evening, the same time the IWRG show airs on AYM. I think they’ve picked up the show (winter baseball is over, spring baseball hasn’t started), but you never know. They did NOT air a new episode last week; this episode should be the mask match if they air live. I really hope the mask match turns up.

IWRG-TVC Deportes: I’ve been a week of here; they’re on an 10 day delay, so this is the week with Mesias and LA Park.

Noches de Coliseo: Seem to be airing 2 matches from Sunday, 2 matches from Tuesday, and 2 matches from who knows.

  1. I’m going to guess, “no”, pay for the wrestlers has nothing to do with being on Fox or 9alavision. Also going to guess that one or both of the two networks came up with the concept of “exclusive content” although it’s common sense stuff JCR probably came up with on his own.

    If CMLL is concerned that 9alavision fans aren’t seeing the women’t feud, maybe they can have one of the women do “Luchadora Invitada” commentary to help get the feud over on that channel.

    Still don’t understand why MundoFox in the US isn’t airing CMLL. If CMLL is asked to air on that channel instead of Fox Deportes they should grab it. TCF is 100% right about the rotating timeslot on Fox.

  2. Will you be posting the GDL show since it aired?

    Could you send me the link to GDL again? I lost it.
