Terrible won three matches in one day! That’s normally like a month for him. Meanwhile, Atlantis & Stuka advanced to the semifinal without actually winning a match on their own. Tournaments.

CMLL announced a press conference would happen today to talk about the Anniversary card, then canceled it yesterday afternoon. This seems like typical CMLL behavior, the same as happened with the TV Azteca deal, but I’m told there’s more to it – CMLL is considering running a significant angle and/or adding a match because Anniversary ticket sales have been softer than expected. People suggested a seventh match would be added to get Sombra on the card and they may end up being right (though I don’t know if it involves Sombra.) I have no idea what exactly is going on, except it would happen Friday night if it’s happening at all. I don’t even know how likely it is, only that it was enough to postpone the press conference for the moment.

Dragon Rojo announced on Twitter yesterday that his persistent knee injury will keep him out of action. La Sombra replaces Dragon Rojo today, and Mascara Dorada does the same on Friday. Fuego’s added to the card to take Dorada’s spot on Friday.

Also, for no obvious reason, Marco and Volador swap places on Sunday. That puts Marco in the main event (w/Rush & Atlantis vs Shocker, Ultimo Guerrero, Gran Guerrero) and Volador in the fourth (w/La Mascara & Titan versus Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Vangellys.) It’s possible CMLL could have another title match main event on 09/21 and maybe changed their mind on which one they’re doing.

Today’s Arena Mexico show is now main evented by Super Porky, Valiente, and Stuka Jr. vs Mephisto, Terrible and Rey Bucanero Jr., so maybe they’ll set up Valiente or Stuka versus Mephisto for the holiday show. Guadalajara has Atlantis, Rush, and Titan versus Ultimo Guerrero, Gran Guerrero, and Euforia. The big match there might come from the Mexico/DF cibernetico, which includes Dragon Lee and Virus on opposite teams.

LuchaWorld has this week’s Poster-Mania.

Black Terry Jr. is posting highlights of the Lucha Memes show. The Freelance/Suicide vs Toxin Boy/Fly Star and Extreme Boy/Aeroboy matches are up now.

Astral is #1 on the CMLL top 10 list. Euforia is 10th.

The Gladiatores catches up with Saruman.

Rayo de Jalisco Jr. has a movie coming out next year.

TG Power unmasked himself and retired in Tijuana.

Culto Santanico beat Los Piratas in San Luis Potosi.

Corsario de Fuego won the NWA Mexican Welterweight Championship from Skayde, who might have it again by the next time it’s mentioned.

Lucha Libre In Japan

09/09 Dragon Gate: Flamtia (c) b Kzy [OPEN THE BRAVE GATE] – fifth defense, Flamita keeps the title even though he was headed home after this match. That’s pretty unusual (and great) for a Mexican in a Japanese promotion. Gif of the finish here. He was challenged by K-ness for a title match when he returns.


CMLL (TUE) 09/16/2014 Arena Puebla
1) Arkalis, Meyer, Paris vs Guerrero Espacial, Rey Apocalipsis, Toro Bill Jr.
2) Dark Angel & Estrellita vs Amapola & Zeuxis
3) Black Panther, Blue Panther, Cachorro vs Misterioso Jr., Pierroth, Sagrado
4) La Máscara, Máscara Dorada, Volador Jr. vs Euforia, Shocker, Vangellys
5) Marco Corleone & Rush vs Rey Escorpión & Terrible

Tuesday night show due to Independence day holiday.

Zeuxis/Estrellita is happening again.

The main event isn’t even listed as for a Copa now. I suppose they’d have to get a trophy if it was for one.

Arkalis, the latest name to come up on Puebla’s rotating list of novatos, has been turning up on indy shows since April and appears to be a Centella de Oro trainee.

Noches de Coliseo was all a repeat again. IWRG is airing at the weirdest times.

Puebla files came out really small, so I must’ve scre wed up things. (Except the lightning match, which I got from another airing that had a couple of dropouts.)

Since TripleMania has aired on TV and is already available for free on AAA’s site, I’ve included a copy of the SkyPPV. It does drop off a little bit at times but it’s there if you can’t get to the AAA channel for whatever reason.

Reminder: I’m in Mexico next Tuesday and just getting back the following one. I’ll post what I have when I get a chance, but I’m thinking it’ll probably just be on YouTube for the time being.
