GalaTV’s online schedule lists CMLL as airing and WWE in AAA’s spot. I’m ignoring it. They were wrong last week and have been off recently, and it doesn’t make any sense. Just beware no one’s totally sure what’s airing.

== AAA ==

AAA-Televisa: Queretaro turns out to be a two weeks taping after all. This should have another Daga/Psicosis vs Mexican Powers match, and Chessman/Negra/Perro vs Cibernetico/Mesias/Parka. Whatever early match didn’t air last week will air on UTDN.

AAA-Fusion: still no show.

== CMLL ==

Galavision/Televisa: Atlantis/Panther build up trios. They should go back to the show that didn’t air and air Atlantis/UG, but there’s rarely that sort of work done here.

FOX: Universal Tournament Block B.

52MX: No taping last Sunday, so no sure tell of what will air.
– easiest/most likely: a rerun of a recent episode
– most useful to CMLL: air the show that was supposed to be on Televisa last Saturday
– most useful to me: repeat the Arena Coliseo Anniversary show so I can get sound!

C3: Casas/Shocker/Valiente vs Rush/Terrible/Vangellys

TVC Deportes (Puebla): Atlantis/Sombra/Niebla vs Rush/Terribel/Volador

En Busca de un Idolo: Valiente vs Tiger, Fantasma vs Vangellys, maybe more Negro vs Rush?

Terra: AIRING FRIDAY’S SHOW. Universal final, tag preview.

== Other ==

IWRG-AYM Sports: AYM starts the show at 11pm. Golden Magic vs Dinamic Black.

Noches de Coliseo: Hijo de Espanto vs Tigre Universitario

IWL: The trios tournament from the 06/18 Arena Aficion show. If it airs.

Matches To Watch Later

Got nothing.

09/22 AAA TV Lineup (DF) – Dinastia/Abismo title match

AAA TV (SUN) 09/22/2013 Domo del Deportivo Plan Sexenal, Distrito Federal
1) Dinastía vs Mini Abismo Negro [AAA MINI]
Dinastia’s 3rd defense
2) Drago, Faby Apache, Pimpinela Escarlata vs Argos, Mamba, Mary Apache
3) ?, Angélico, Jack Evans vs Eterno, Pentagón Jr., Steve Pain
4) Daga, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Psicosis vs Escoria, Espíritu, Ozz
5) El Mesías, La Parka, Psycho Clown vs Chessman, Parka Negra, Texano Jr.

Air Date: 10/05? Naucalpan is obviously a double taping now, Toluca could be as well and this is five matches so one taping. 09/28 is also possible. The “guess what date this show will air for no apparent reason” bit must be the favorite of everything I do here.

AAA posted this one a day or so early, instead of waiting until tonight’s taping.

Main event will be TV try six (6) for Psycho Clown to pin Texano, if he doesn’t get it done tonight. (They’ve moved it to the main event, so maybe it’ll happen here.) Parka and Parka Negra are facing off nearly as much.

Tecnicos have had their chances to get revenge on La Secta, but the Perros (what’s left of them!) have their shot in their old home arena. Cuervo is off in AJPW (and Eita is off in Dragon Gate, and Halloween is off on planet Tijuana) so it should be a fair fight and a brawl.

Mystery Gringo debuts in the third match. Still no idea who it is. Match should be very good if he’s any good.

Dinastia & Mini Abismo Negro being in the opener doesn’t do much for the importance of the title, but it should be a very good match to start the card. (And probably indicates how their tag match is going down tonight.)

Next card may be 10/02 in SLP. It works air date wise.

AAA in Toluca, notes

AAA has a TV taping tonight in Toluca, their second in six days. Main event is Cibernetico, Mesias, La Parka versus Ozz, Parka Negra and Chessman. While the Secta always betrays their leader because they want no leader, it’s usually the bigger Ozz who gets the chance at being with the top guys as if he’s the leader of the group  Sometimes this just gets him beat! He’ll try to avoid that tonight. Psycho Clown gets another chance to actually beat Texano Jr. Maybe the Psycho Circus should make some flash cards or a YouTube video to remind them of which Consejo guy they’re supposed to pin. The bottom two thirds of the card have little ongoing storylines but could all be fun matches.

AAA tapings are off for 17 days (as best we can tell) after this show. They’ll be less than a month away from Heroes Inmortales by the time they’re back and will probably have to announce the date/location sometime in the gap. Maybe they’ll actually do it tonight?

Last night’s Tercera Caida had Joe Lider in the studio for the entire hour. Fusion did air, but it was a repeat.

CMLL put the usual GalaTV promo for next week’s show.  Akron was the missing name in the opener of next Monday’s Arena Puebla show.

There was a rumor the CMLL Anniversary date/time was being moved. This is not true.

LuchaWorld had KrisZ’s news update and 80 thru 71 in the top of 2012 countdown.

Bill has highlights of 08/04/13 Arena Coliseo.

LuchaMania Monterrey’s website is back with Hijo de Esapnto II defeating Tigre Universitario for a random title belt in Arena Coliseo Monterrey and Kaientai doing a pipebomb promo in NGX.

Circulo Negro kept the Morelos state Heavyweight championship over Sioux in straight falls, the last by DQ. The rudos beat up Circulo and his father post match. Circulo’s father is Chamaco Valaguez (teasing a return from retirement), so Circulo is Nosferatu’s brother.

IWL is bringing in El Pulpo and Pulpocito to their anniversary show, in case you were on the fence after the first 61 guys were announced.

A 09/16 show in Morelos lists Maximo in the main event. Maximo says he wasn’t ever contacted.

100% Lucha/Argentine luchador Hip Hop Man won his Arena Aficion debut match.

Apolo Dantes talks about his career.

Ohtani’s Jacket reviews more La Parka & Lizmark.

Lucha Libre in Japan

09/05 NJPW: Manabu Nakanishi, Jushin Liger [O] & Tiger Mask b Karl Anderson, Tama Tonga & Rey Bucanero [X]
That start could’ve gone better. Liger is being set up for a NWA Heavyweight title match so I don’t like Bucanero’s chances of taking the tag team titles away from him.


AAA RyL (SAT) 09/28/2013 Jose Cuervo Salon, Mexico City
1) Dinastía & Octagoncito vs Mini Murder Clown & Mini Psycho Clown
2) El Resplandor & Hijo de Clímax vs Danny Casas & Súper Nova
3) Jennifer Blake & Lolita vs La Jarochita & Sexy Lady
4) Crazy Boy, Joe Lider, Niño Hamburguesa vs Devil Rocker, Machine Rocker, Soul Rocker
5) Canek, Electroshock, Heavy Metal vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Villano IV

“Rock y Lucha 2”, following up on a show from last year with various music performances as part of the show. (Heavy Metal promoted?) It’s the first time Super Nova has been listed on a show after going out with a knee injury. Traumas better be careful. Canek’s turning in the main event.
