04/25-29 lucha times


Not on the list, but definitely available to watch is the MaskedMania show. Their show starts at 5pm EASTERN, 1 hour before Terra does.

== AAA ==

AAA-Televisa: The DF taping! Guessing odd matches.

== CMLL ==

FOX: Kraneo, Niebla, Ripper vs Mistico, Valiente, Volador

52MX: There are no more Camorra/Leo matches, so maybe they’re moving onto the Arkangel/Gallo feud? Rey Escorpion versus Maximo should air. Syuri versus Amapola should air too, but may not.

C3: Reyes del Atlantida vs Guerreros

TVC Deportes (Puebla): If they don’t skip, Sombra & Volador versus Mr. Niebla & Negro Casas

Lucha Azteca: Maximo, Mr. Niebla, Volador versus Rush, Sombra, Rey Escorpion

Terra Friday: Hechicero vs Star Jr. and Super Halcon Jr vs Soberano Jr.

Terra Sunday: Reyes del Aire, Atlantis, Sombra, Mistico vs Revolucionarios

Terra Tuesday: Dragon Lee vs Cavernario, Cachorro vs Guerrero Negro Jr.

== Other ==

Noches de Coliseo: No show this past Sunday? They only aired part of last Tuesday, so guessing the rest here.

IWRG-AYM Sports: last Sunday’s show, since the main event has already popped up.

AAA on Televisa: 2014-04-05


taped 2014-03-29 @ Parque de Beisbol Praxedis Balboa, Ciudad Victoria, Tamaulipas

Blake headstand DDT

Faby Apache, Jennifer Blake, La Jarochita vs Mary Apache, Sexy Star, Taya Valkyrie: This was going good early, got a little silly with the técnicas having a 3 on 6 disadvantage (Hijo del Tirantes deciding he was a rudo this week, Cuervo and Pentagon Jr. both interfering) and had a rough finish. Faby clearly got hurt landing on the spinning DDT she gave to Pentagon Jr. and they had to improvise a finish. It was a finish, it was not a good one, and kind of left Drago making a save when there was nothing going because everyone was actually worried about Faby. (Hijo del Tirantes did seem too concerned about keeping character during all of this.) I’d like to see them have another shot at this. Faby’s injury looked pretty severe, especially for something nothing was said about after the fact.

breaking all sorts of body parts

Angélico, Australian Suicide, Jack Evans vs Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Dark Spíritu: One of those long builds to a hot tag which still gets no particular reaction from the crowd. They will never give this up. Secta got a lot of time to do stuff, didn’t really do much with it. Match itself wasn’t memorable, but it was one more quality win than the Secta got during last fall’s push. Nice save by Espiritu on Angelico’s dive. Jack & Angelico’s new tag team move was nice.

Fantasma all out tope

Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Hijo del Fantasma, Pentagón Jr., Texano Jr.: The prematch video package set this up as a Psycho Clown/Texano direct confrontation, but it was generally a house show main event with a tacked on win for Psycho Clown (after Texano had him clearly beat, an odd way to build up someone for a title match.) It turns out that it’s not too hard for Psycho Clown to beat Texano when he’s not actually trying to do it. Also, apparently the rules this week is that anyone can just run in on any matches and it’s all cool, because no interference was called for a DQ (and no one even bothered to do a ref distraction this time.) Tirantes worked as rudo in this match, but didn’t called the DQ when it would’ve helped the rudos, and then is apparently so dumb as to not see who he’s counting. It’s the usual logic breakdowns. AAA’s preference is to get the reaction from a rudo referee over having their matches consistently make sense, and it makes for a frustrating show if you’re paying attention and/or sober watching it. (Hey, why did Pentagon Jr. and Cuervo suddenly have no more problems at the end of the show? Because it was easy to do it that way.)


IWRG, Tercera Caida, AAA SLP, Juvi

IWRG (WED) 04/23/2014 Arena Naucalpan [The Gladiatores]
1) Látigo b Zurdog
2) Hip Hop Man & Kaling Black b Alfa & Omega
3) Dr. Cerebro & Golden Magic b Picudo Jr. & Ray Cruz
Ray Cruz (?) replaced Tony Casanova
4) Hijo de Máscara Año 2000 b Hijo de Pirata Morgan
Mascara asked for a shot at Pirata’s IWRG middleweight championship.
5) Hijo del Lizmark & Toscano DRAW Eterno & Pirata Morgan
Toscano & Lizmark took the first, Eterno & Pirata Morgan took the second, Toscano submitted Eterno, PIrata beat Toscano, and Lizmark & Pirata beat them.

There’s a Ray Cruz who wrestled in the 90s, and this guy looked like he could’ve been wrestling in the 80s.

Tercera Caida had interviews with Amapola, Los Traumas, Mr. Niebla and Herodes Jr., the last four hyping up their match at ChilangaMask. Herodes Jr. is so dead. There’s after the show interviews with the CMLL luchadors and the Traumas, plus condolences for Barney’s family.

AAA’s posted the missing match from San Luis Potosi: Electroshock, Psycho Clown, Alan Stone vs Texano Jr., Silver King, Chessman. This week’s Observer had an AAA source say they feel Psycho Clown is one more big feud away from being a new star. Rob’s already gotten in one sarcastic remark, though guys about to break thru don’t usually get their matches cut from television.

The WON also had this to say

After the match, Daga announced he was the new leader of the Anarquia group. The old leader, Juventud Guerrera, is gone again over the same issues of other guys complaining he’s too selfish in the ring.

I’m going to guess Juvi is back yet again by October 1st. You?

Rob has highlights of 02/04/14 CMLL.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

Dandy and Satanico talk up their match this Sunday.

Interview hyping Sunday’s MaskedMania show. And another one here! And audio interview here, where Kevin explains the headaches caused by Extreme Rising shows being canceled and uses a metaphor based on the Little Nemo. That’s almost worth the $10 already.

Brief Sin Cara interview hyping a 05/03 Arena Pavillon del Norte match. That’s the third match with Averno, I believe.

An article about the snacks you can by at Arena Coliseo Guadalajara mentions Valiente/Mephisto in passing.

Press conference for the SLP Oro Azul & Black Extreme mask match. That promotion (Curro) is working hard and promoting their match.

CMLL Gaceta explains where Barbaro Cavernario came from (besides the Stone Age) and Mascara Dorada says hello.

IWRG (SUN) 04/27/2014 Arena Naucalpan
1) Dragón Blanco & Sky Ángel vs Power Bull & Skull Metal
Skull Metal’s regular show debut.
2) Alfa & Omega vs Ciclon Black & Kaling Black
3) Ángel Del Amor, Látigo, Metaleon vs Anubis Black, Imposible, Picudo Jr.
4) Astro Rey Jr., Diva Salvaje, Dr. Cerebro vs Guerrero Mixtico, Hip Hop Man, Tony Rivera
5) Hijo De Dos Caras, Relámpago, Veneno vs Apolo Estrada, El Hijo del Diablo, Eterno

I know Veneno has powerful divine karate, but there’s no way the rudos should lose that main event. They should be disappointed in themselves if they can’t defeat that tecnico trio.

DTU (SAT) 05/17/2014 Arena Roberto Paz, Guadalajara, Jalisco
1) ? vs ??, ???
trainees match
2) Castigador, Galaxy, Vengador vs Andy Aguilar, Black Golden, Power Boy
3) Jimmy, Kevin, Tony vs Artikus, El Lacandón, Lanzeloth
Tony, Kevin and Jimmy are Los Nerds, debuting here.
4) Crazy King & Miedo Extremo vs Chica Ye-Ye & Kalibus and Energy & Gremlin
5) Draego vs Drastik Boy, Rey Celestial, Aero Xtreme
6) Demente Extreme vs Alex Romano, Jhonky, Dance Boy, Slayer Pack, Apocalipsis
7) Príncipe Halcón vs Ángel del Misterio, Black Fire, Rocky Lobo, Tony Rodriguez
8) Shane Strickland vs Jinzo, Septimo Dragon, Flamita, Kaleth, Pesadilla
9) Ángel o Demonio vs Shiryu Dragon, Crazy Boy, Roberto Paz
10) Ovett vs Violento Jack, Cíclope [DTU]
Ovett is champion

It was so weird for Shiryu Dragon to tell Super Libre how he thinks the extreme style is over done right before a DTU show was coming in. There is more variety to DTU than their has been at other points – match 3, 7, and 8 stick out as more about flips than tubes – but those are two straight bloody messes to end the show.
