CMLL announced the 09/19 CMLL Anniversary show would include a Copa 81 Aniversario with Princesa Sugehit, Marcela, Goya Kong, Estrellita, Amapola, Tiffany, Zeuxis and Dalys. It’s not specifically said to be a cibernetico but Copas usually are. It’s nice to see the women are being included, but it’s also not a match that’s going to sell more tickets on the face of it. The press release implies matches will be added to the card regularly prior to 09/19, instead of just all being dropped at once closer to the show.
After saying there would be an announcement about lucha libre on Monday, El Rey made no announcement about lucha libre on Monday.
Marco, Maximo, Stuka vs Shocker, Mephisto and Ephesto is the CMLL Arena Mexico today. Black Panther versus Arkangel is today’s lightning match, and they’ve been going up on YouTube pretty quick of late. Ingobernables face Peste Negra in Guadalajara, with a Titan versus Gran Guerrero underneath.
DTU’s run of shows start today in Arena Aficion. Main event is an Angel o Demonio/Ovett title match. There will be blood.
The #1 on CMLL’s top 10 list is CMLL. Not sure about the voting there. Kraneo is #10. The #10 is more fun each week because there’s usually only 7-9 good ideas but it’s a top 10 list. They have to get creative.
This week’s SuperLuchas #531 will cover SummerSlam & TripleMania. It’s going out today, so that’s pretty quick turnaround.
Speaking of stupid, cell phone video of Chessman’s dive off the top of the cage. He did it during the entrances, when the cameras wouldn’t be on the ring, the lights were off, and no one on TV saw it.
Galactar beat Titanik in a mask match on 08/17. Titanik is José Juan Hernández Díaz con 19 años de profesional.
LuchaWorld has Poster-Mania for the week.
Ohtani’s Jacket reviews a nothing Negro Casas match with an amusing promo (keep scrolling to the comments.)
A story on Guatemala lucha libre. The writer visited a Corporacion AAA show. There are often posters for that arena, Arena Coliseo Guatemala, and Arena Guatemala Mexico.

Rebelde returns in the opener, which narrows suspicion for Hombre sin Nombre. Also, that opener could be pretty good.
