Last four matches were good, with that semifinal great. It sounds like they’ll definitely rematch next week, but could run into each other on Tuesday.

Terra had the same buffering issues they’ve had often in Coliseo (including last week.) Only the Baja feed recorded well for me.

A Toryumon show. They should have another show before DragonMania in May.

Dark Angel said she was doing English commentary for CMLL on Friday. I wonder who they’re selling TV to now.

CMLL has posted the Nueva Peste Negra and Rush vs Shocker skits from Friday. They’re both fun, and hopefully the start of a trend.

Marco Corleone says his first match back went well.

Rob has highlights of 11/12/13 CMLL.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

This week’s Super Libre had Rudy Santana, Guerrero Maya and Titan as guests.

Animal won the Gran Prix Refaccionarias del Valle in Tijuana

Los Colisenios believes we should not get too excited abotu a Shocker rudo turn given the last few years but a feud with Rush might be good for him. Meanwhile, Argos on Facebook angrily responded to the recent Mistico column by claiming Los Colisenos/Cesar is in fact CMLL announcer Julio Cesar Rivera and two other people who work for CMLL. (The multiple people would explain why he was oddly posting on two different blogs at last week, that was really business exposing.)

CMLL Cadetes AGAIN almost team up. It’s going to happen, some day. That’s a weird tercera rudo side – including Skandalo making his return.

Updated Rey de Reyes bracket2014reydereyesblocka

(We’re still not sure if this is 16 people, guessing.)

Zorro winning is a good idea; he needs something to do to get some momentum and advancing to the Rey de Reyes final gives him that.

Nothing else worth nothing on this show. Dorian said they drew 6,000 people. Tickets were earlier announced as free, though AAA didn’t push that as much as their last couple free shows. They have a quick turn around to the next taping, Thursday in Toluca.
