Azteca America starts airing a lucha libre program this weekend, Saturday at 2pm CT. It’s listed as “Lucha Azteca” (though it was listed “Lucha Libre” at first; may want to double check you’re still getting it if you previously set it to record.) It appears to be CMLL and my hunch it’s recycled Fox Sports shows. No one’s said anything for sure, so that’s all of a preview I can do.

I will be trying to record/upload this show. However, Azteca America and my DVR do not get along well – it’s as if the channel is a badly buffering web feed which occasionally causes my DVR just to freak out and reboot – so it’s not a sure thing I’ll get it up here. The good thing is, if I’m right about it being just stuff we’ve seen, it doesn’t really matter all that much.

== AAA ==

AAA-Televisa: Part 1 from Tonala. AAA says the AJ/Mesias match will not air until next week, so the trios main event will air for sure, and I’m guessing the Secta/Circus trios match. Women’s trios goes to UTDN in that situation.

== CMLL ==

FOX: Thru daylight savings time mishaps (for real), I know the plan was to air the top 3 matches from last week – the Terra main event (with a questionable shocker), Roja/UG/Volador vs Sombra/Mascara/Mistico, and Tama Tonga vs Rush.

52MX: Should be the two title matches. This would be a good week to skip the GDL match.

C3: Dorada, Mistico, Titan vs Aguila, Niebla and Namajague. Probably another bad show?

TVC Deportes (Puebla): Atlantis & Sombra vs UG & Volador

En Busca de un Idolo: Maybe this week they’ll air the final? This is listed as airing twice on Saturday, I just hope they manage once.

Terra Friday: Maximo vs Rey Escorpion is the friday main event with a promising tercera.

Terra Sunday: Estetas reunite to face Gran Guerrero, Ultimo Guerrero and Mr. Niebla

== Other ==

IWRG-AYM Sports: Which show? Who knows! Maybe tonights. Programming listings have updated a week late to indicate the show airing early

Noches de Coliseo: whatever they did last Sunday and probably even more repeats of the WWL show.

IWL: Unsure, since they ended the last taping and could go to any one of them and didn’t air last week.

DTU: There’s no preview this week. Maybe there’s no new show this week? (It’s moved to 2AM, so you have a wait ahead of you.)

One thought on “11/09-11 lucha times

  1. WON Thurs Update said a Azteca America “company spokesperson” knows nothing about CMLL airing but WON points out it’s on their website.

    I think “Lucha Azteca” was officially the name of the show on Azteca Noreste 7. And the logo on the AA website looks familiar but it’s been so long since I’ve watched any footage.

    Azteca America is tricky. When I’m in NYC at a friends house I can watch the local feed on WMBC 63 on DirecTV as a “local” on Ch. 40 or the national feed in the Spanish tier. Sometimes they have different programs on. Especially in the afternoon so it will be interesting to see what happens on Saturday.
