10/18-19 lucha times


Daylight savings time (different in US than Mexico) and Lucha Underground are coming, but this week is still normal.

== AAA ==

AAA-Televisa: the rest of the Zumpango taping, inculding Faby/Suicide vs Eterno/Sexy and Mesias/Myzteziz vs Perro/Texano.

== CMLL ==

FOX2: Copa VIP final and Ingobnerables vs Euforia/Thunder/UG

Azteca: a week behind, so Copa VIP Block B this week.

52MX: Volador vs Shocker.

Claro: The previews they taped prior to the taping did not seem to include one of the minis title match. The Cachorro/Pegasso/Triton vs Delta/Maya/Stuka match should be good anyway.

C3: Atlantis/Stuka/Valiente vs Peste Negra

TVC Deportes (Puebla): Gran/Niebla/UG vs Atlantis/Azul/Sombra

Terra Sunday: Diamante Azul vs Shocker

== Other ==

Noches de Coliseo: reruns

IWRG (LAS/AYM): Probably the Myzteziz show – except the Sunday airing has mysteriously disappered of the schedule. Someone wants to make sure I never get the Ninja Turtles match.

Rudos gifted win in Naucalpan, Ultimo Guerrero says no to Dr. Wagner, Gronda vs Demon Clown

Los Gringos & Hip Hop Man temporarily stop the karate turtles photo by Black Terry Jr.

1) Emperador Azteca & Metaleon b Anubis Black & Atomic Star
straight falls.
2) Leo (IWRG), Mike, Rafy, Teelo b Apolo Estrada, Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo, Hip Hop Man
3) Jennifer Blake, La Jarochita, Súper Nova b Eterno, Sexy Lady, Taya Valkyrie
Jennifer beat Taya
4) Monsther Clown & Murder Clown DQ Hijo de Pirata Morgan & Pirata Morgan
Hijo de Pirata tried sneaking in a foul on Monster but was caught.
5) Averno, Chessman, Texano Jr. DQ Hijo De Dos Caras, Myzteziz, Psycho Clown
Rudos took 1/3. Myzteziz got La Mistica on Averno, only for Chessman to hit both referees with a chair. Psycho got the chair and fought off the rudos, but the ref awoke to see Psycho with the chair and DQed him.

Fuego en el Ring has an interview with Ultimo Guerrero, who says an announced title match with him and Dr. Wagner in Merida is not happening – the card is false and he’s not going. UG says he no interest in Wagner coming back to CMLL, believing CMLL has their own stars and do not need Wagner. UG is asked about upcoming trios title defenses – he says he believes there’s one coming up soon in Puebla and maybe one more. There seems to be one set up for Friday night in Arena Mexico, but perhaps not. Puebla would mean Atlantis, Maximo and Valiente are probably getting a title match on 10/27.

This week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter says AAA almost but didn’t sell out for San Luis Potosi, drawing 8,500 to Domo. (Capacity is listed as 11,000, though it’s always smaller when they start cutting off seats the set.) WON’s started reporting lucha attendance for regular shows the last few weeks – CMLL’s Friday crowd is listed at 4000.

The WON also mentions TNA’s Zema Ion is headed to Mexico while TNA is off the next few months. Ion helped Tigre Uno get into TNA, so I suspect this is Tiger repaying that favor. DTU’s anniversary shows are going to be announced next Friday, and Ion’s worked with them previously. Robbie E may also come to Mexico

Angelico, Aerostar and Argenis will debut on this weekend’s Lucha Underground tapings. Are they going alphabetical? Poor poor Soul Rocker. Aerostar and Angelico should be good.

Cassandro, Diva Salvaje, Puma and Niebla Roja are headed to Belgium for Halloween. Cassandro visited the Arena Mexico show on Tuesday and there’s a new video feature on him. Cassandro has been a world traveler for many years, but the New Yorker article has predictable opened up even more doors.

CMLL Informa had no real news and plenty of odd interviews. They interviewed the Japanese women (or mostly Okumura cutting promos for them), the Mexican women (and the Puerto Rican woman) and Diamante Azul. They’ve also put up the Stellar Moments for last week.

This week’s Tercera Caida was surely a better show even though I haven’t seen yet. The after the show video is up as well.

AAA’s posted this week’s TV show, with Fantasma vs Aerotar for the cruiserweight title.

Segunda Caida raves about the Negro Casas vs Rush hair match.

Kilvan and Yoruba are added to the CaraLucha tag tournament and a Super Nova promo for his match with Trauma II.

The outdoor lucha libre photo exhibit in Puebla has opened.


IWRG (SUN) 10/19/2014 Arena Naucalpan
1) Saruman & Sky Ángel vs Araña de Plata & Atomic Star
2) Metaleon & Septimo Dragon vs Anubis Black & Hip Hop Man
3) Leo, Mike, Rafy, Teelo vs Canis Lupus, Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Spartan
4) Trauma I & Trauma II vs Hijo de Pirata Morgan & Pirata Morgan Jr.
5) Grond XXX, Pantera, Veneno vs Demon Clown, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Pirata Morgan

Original Gronda versus Demon Clown. This a real main event, with a team of Gronda, the guy who won’t give up wearing his mask and crazy man of god Veneno. I don’t even know. Just put the turtles in the main event already. If you’re going to make ludicrous main events, at least make them fun.
