04/04-06 lucha times


All of Mexico moves to Daylight Savings Time starting early Sunday. Friday night’s Terra show and any streams on Tuesday Saturday are still an hour off, but everything returns to ‘normal’ starting with Sunday’s Terra show.

== AAA ==

AAA-Televisa: The taping from Ciudad Victoria just this past week. I’m going to guess the even matches this week, the odds next week.

== CMLL ==

FOX: Sombra vs Volador and the trios title match.

52MX: Niebla/Atlantis and Leo/Camorra build up. I wonder if they’ll show anything of the minis match; they never show the openers here, but that’s sort of the main event the next day. You probably shouldn’t try to draw based on feuds you’re putting in the opener, but what do I know.

C3: Mistico/Averno build up, some good trios.

TVC Deportes (Puebla): Volador vs Mephisto. I’ve just realized how many singles matches Volador’s already had in this building this year (it’ll be four on Monday, which is weird for a full year.) No start time currently listed; TVCD schedule makers do not appear to be acknowledging the existence of Sunday at this point.

Lucha Azteca: Dos Leyendas. Kind of interested in how they end up editing this. Azteca has about 7 minutes less of TV time than Fox Sports. Dalys/Marcela went about 10 minutes and is easy to cut, but that means about 3 minutes has to be added back other places. Maybe other matches have a little more to them?

Terra Friday: En Busca de un Idolo! Maybe they’ll finish putting up the website by then? Also, Magnus Contra Ghost Squirrel.

Terra Sunday: Minis cage match, Atlantis vs Mr. Niebla. People on Twitter thinking I’m weird for writing about CMLL while some other show if going on. Given those two main events, those people are probably right.

Terra Tuesday: En Buca de un Idolo on this show too! (This is the Hechicero show.) The Terra matches did not air on C3 last year, though the cibernetico did.

== Other ==

IWRG-AYM Sports: Piratas/Eterno vs Trauams/Canis

Noches de Coliseo: Villanos vs Lucero/Universatio, Traumas vs Diluvio Negro/Silver Star

IWRG, DTU, Sin Cara, Pierroth

1) Seiya b Fulgor II
2) Atomic Star & Electro Boy b Hip Hop Man & Látigo
3) Centvrión, Emperador Azteca, Metaleon b Hijo De La Bestia, Rayan, Spartan
Dragon Celestial replaced Emperador Azteca, who appeared with a cast around his elbow.
4) Freyser, Oficial 911, Oficial AK47 DQ Chico Che, Golden Magic, Máscara Púrpura
Golden Magic replaced Nino Hamburugesa. Rudos took 1/3, the last when both Golden Magic and 911 faked fouls and the referee ruled it for the rudos.
5) Eterno, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan b Canis Lupus, Trauma I, Trauma II
No Tony Casanova or Damian, said to be due to plane problems. Hijo del Pirata and Pirata Jr. teamed with Eterno, and they took 1/3.

I hope Nino Hamburguesa was just double booked, because he really shouldn’t be missing shows. Rather see Golden Magic anyway.

DTU has announced tour dates for May

05/16: Arena Queretaro
05/17: Salamanca, Guanajuato
05/18: Arena Roberto Paz, Guadalajara
05/20: Arena Aficon
05/25: Mexico City

Sin Cara’s debut match in Arena Coliseo Monterrey on 05/04 now has a main event of Sin Cara, Cibernetico, and Argenis versus Psycho Circus. No more Averno (or Perro Jr.)

The original Pierroth was at Arena Mexico Tuesday, leading to a bit where Pierrothito vowed to not lose his Pierroth mask on Friday. It’s been unclear what the relationship has been between CMLL & Pierroth since the start of Comandante Pierroth (who hasn’t been around in a little while.) Hopefully that was some way of paying the original Pierroth (who’s never completely recovered from his his stroke) by leasing out the name, but I’d also kind of hope they’d pay him even if they didn’t use the name.

CMLL also has a short piece on Arena Coliseo Anniversary show.

Blue Demon Jr. is unhappy Adidas used a Rey Misterio mask to influence the Mexican National Team’s jersey, since Rey Jr. is from San Diego and not Mexican enough (according to Demon.) Demon thinks they should’ve used someone like Blue Demon.
