12/14-16 lucha times


No TxT. Dunno. Would assume it’s not coming down.

This week’s C3 aired the originally advertisement for En Busca de un Idolo season 2, with no context or explanation. It could mean anything or nothing at all with CMLL. This is not the first time that show as associated with En Busca de Un Idolo. Season 1 was originally advertised as airing on that network, then much later aired on Fox Sports 2 with no reason given. That should be the same expectation for whatever happens here.

LAS and AYM will air any IWRG show at any time. Tuesday’s FILL show has already been airing at random times for random lengths.

== AAA ==

AAA-Televisa: Part 1 of Guerra de Titanes, which could mean anything. La Sociedad Reloaded probably airs week 2, so maybe the cage match and the trios title match on week 1.

== CMLL ==

FOX: Volador’s debut as a tecnico, which will be really confusing on the show which has edited out all mention of him turning tecnico the last two weeks. Rush in the semimain.

52MX: last Sunday’s show, which I do not remember at all. Volador/Negor feuding, there was there. GDL match appears to be a minis match.

C3: More Maximo/Escorpion/Chiquito build.

TVC Deportes (Puebla): Guerreros vs Atlantis/Mistico/Shocker

Terra Friday: Blue Panther vs Negro Casas should be a thing and should be a draw but Negro Casas will make sure that doesn’t happen.

Terra Sunday: More Volador/Negro Casas plus a Halcon/Cancerbero lightning match

Lucha Azteca: Invasors vs tecnicos, which was disappointing.

== Other ==

IWRG-AYM Sports: they’ve been showing the Tuesday show already and the Sunday show is an afternoon show, so maybe this is the Sunday show? That would be Cerebro vs Apolo in a hair match. Show is listed as starting a half hour late at 11pm.

Noches de Coliseo: No results from Sunday’s show, and Tuesday’s show was more interesting. Maybe a mix.

IWL: probably doesn’t air. No episode turned up from this past week.

DTU: matches from the 10/13 Arena Pavillon del Norte, including a Artikus/Drastik Boy vs Flamita/Rokcy Lobo vs Lanzeloth/Septimo Dragon

billed as the 31st tournament (ex-High Power). Teams are the first generation studnets (led by Black Terry) versus the second generation (led by Bombero Infernal.) Emperdor Azteca replaced Impossible on team 2.Eliminations went Zurdog, Blue Monster, Power Bull, Fresero, Sky Angel, Astro Rey, Latigo, Picudo, Matrix, canis Lupus, Emperador Azteca, Alan Extreme, and Dragon Celestial, leaving Fulgor I on Gen2 vs Golden Magic and Centviron. Fulgor beat both Golden and then Centvrion to win the tournament.

Hoping this airs in one piece on LAS at some point. Final three sounds interesting.

Negro Casas, Ultimo Guerrero and Rey Bucanero defeated Rush, Atlantis, La Mascara in Arena Aficion on Tuesday.

Cibernetico is angry about Perro Aguayo Jr. turning  on him and angry about Perro not being on this weekend’s taping so he’ll only be able to take out his anger on La Sociedad members Silver King, Hijo del Fantasma and Pentagon Junior. Hey, Pentagon Jr. is in La Sociedad, good for him.

Silver King says Blue Demon better watch out because Consejo is in it’s prime. Actually, if we’re looking for silver linings on La Sociedad, dropping Consejo as a concept would be a fine idea. Currently Consejo is champion Texano, still somewhat new Hijo del Fantasma and a bunch of guys who lose all their matches. Why are Texano and Fantasma still associating with the rest of the guys? New t-shirts for everyone.

Angel de Oro will be out 6-8 months after right knee surgery; his ACL and MCL were damaged He posted a video of his surgery on Facebook, via LuchaWorld.

Another CMLL Gaceta preview calls it the Leyenda de Plata 2013 even though the final will be in 2014. They also say “the likes of” Atlantis, Felino, Triton, Titan and Tiger will be in the tournament. 11 to go?

Tercera Caida has more from their trip to Tijuana (including interviews with Bestia, Damian and Halloween) and Super Muneco studio.
