CMLL on 2015-09-25 

flyin’ Guerreros

What was the important stuff? Volador beat Rush in straight falls, but ended up laid out by the entire Ingobernables. Thunder was not seen and everyone pretended like he didn’t exist, which was the best Thunder related development in a while. The Universal tournament will start next week.

What were the good matches? Nothing superb, but matches 2, 3, 4 were all pretty fun. Rush/Volador was not much and disappointing.

Where can I see this? You could’ve seen it on the live stream. I’m encoding the show and it should be in next week’s video post.

Guadalajara results, Friday preview, Cara Lucha

Mephisto beat Valiente for the win.
5) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Volador Jr. b Rey Bucanero, Shocker, Terrible
Marco beat Shocker. Confetti was shot off for some reason.

CMLL’s first Friday night show after the Anniversary has a singles match which could end up being repeated on the next big show. Volador Jr. and Rush, both left without current rivals when LA Park & Dr. Wagner left, face off in a singles match to main event tonight’s show. They’ve rarely meant in singles match, but seem to have an interesting dynamic and the crowd will definitely be behind one guy.

The other top matches follow on last week’s show: Sombra & Atlantis meet for the first time since their mask match in a trios match. Atlantis teams with Valiente & Maximo to face Ingobernables Sombra, La Mascara and Marco Corleone. Ultimo Guerrero continues to feud with Thunder in a trios with Niebla Roja, Gran Guerrero, Rey Escorpion and Thunder. The rest of the show includes the Hijos del Infernal teaming up, a minis match, and Raziel & Cancerbero in the opener.

ESTO has an interview with Rush, who repeats the idea that he only wants masks. Something probably needs to happen tonight to change his mind.

Tonight’s show will return to airing on at 8:30 pm CT. Next week’s show is scheduled to air on that website as well, and they’re still talking about what comes after that.

Pentagon says no one can take the tag team titles away from him and Joe Lider. Google Translate quotes Pentagon as being focused on “those two ranchers sells cheese”.

At a show this Sunday in Juarez, students of Fray Tormenta will face Angel Negro & El Fariseo in a 5000 pesos ladder match. The 5000 pesos are going to a charity of the winner’s choice (a soup kitchen or Fray’s orphanage.) This is part of a lucha show (with Rey Bucanero, Angel de Oro, Pagano and Aereo) that’s part of an annual charity cookout for the orphanage.

WXW announced a #1 contenders tournament for the DTU Alto Impacto title.

Indy promotion RCH announced they’re going to return soon. They haven’t run a show since last July.

There will be a tribute show to Dr. X on October 10th. He died four years ago.

In Xalapa’s XWW promotion, Xtremo won the cruiserweight title from Super Nova, Krazy Star is the new women’s championship (vacant after Yuca disappeared), and Rey Panter Jr. took Puma Metalico’s hair.

Star Fire is getting treatment on her knee and hopes to return to training soon, so it sounds like the knee injury wasn’t as bad as it could’ve been.

Veracruz luchador Gallo Giro is retiring.

Eric Mutter has 13 more people who should be on Lucha Underground Season 2.


CARA Lucha (SAT) 10/03/2015 Arena San Juan Pantitlan, Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl, Estado de México

A lot of the CMLL luchadors who were canceled last month are being used here as a make up. Only Polvora and Boby Zavala are missing, and one or both could end up being the mystery luchador. Trauma I has a promo about the main event.

Jocker (Guadalajara) versus Wasson is a battle of two luchadors doing the same Joker gimmick. Mala Hiebra teams up for the first time in the segunda, which looks like an excellent match.

lucha TV schedule for weekend of September 25th


This thing is back. Hooray?

  • AAA has the actual vacation show. Business picks back up next week.
  • CMLL Guerreros del Ring 52MX is back on the schedule (and the rerun did air tonight with the normal episode.)  They should have the second to last Dark Angel match.
  • The Dragon Lee vs Virus lightning match isn’t on the internet yet, would be nice if LATV airs it.
  • The IWRG Retro show may air on Saturday or Sunday on AYM.
