lucha TV preview for weekend of October 3rd


  • I’m less sure than usual with AAA. A five match taping is normally one TV taping, but this also had a long La Sociedad segment (and a dark match with locals they could use to fill time.) Heroes Inmortales airs next, so either’s it going to be on free TV six or thirteen days after it takes place.
  • CMLL on Azteca has the mask match. They should just air that. They should definitely not air the semimain match. Now that I think again, they’re actually much more likely to air Dark Angel/Princesa Sugehit.
  • I feel like this should have a third bullet point but I can’t think of anything to say. Puebla locals matches may be good? It’s possible I won’t be around to record Claro Sports?

Rudos took 1/3. Shocker snuck in a foul on Volador.

So it’s Shocker & Volador are feuding here, which means Volador is going to have one of those weeks with multiple singles matches soon.

Torneo FILL XLV: FILL (Black Terry) versus Team Heddi Karaoui. Picka & Freiser were listed but did not wrestle. Blue Monther was the first eliminated. Match came down to Aeroman & Magnficio, with Aeroman getting in a top rope Canadian Destroyer. Referee counted three, though it looked like Magnifico got his shoulder up at 2. Terry & Karoui argued after the match.

The next lucha libre licensing exam in Naucalpan may be on 11/24. IWRG’s been advertising it pretty heavily on their Facebook.

Heroes Inmortales will be a conventional PPV in Mexico. Prices are 259 for SD, 337 for HD. That’s more expensive than iPPV (190), but HD is almost the same price as the iPPV in the US (320).

Molotov explained he turned rudo because Lestat had been disrespecting him for weeks. I don’t quite remember it happening that way. I think it more confirms Molotov has no social media accounts because he wouldn’t turned rudo far soon with due to the disrespect he already gets.

Lucha Libre London – the London shows with Santo and Todo x el Todo – are said to be returning on July 1st and July 2nd of next year.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

Apolo Valdes looks at what’s next for AAA & CMLL.

Criterio Hidalgo talks to Campesino del Valle about his career and Gotita de Plata about his career. Gotita first got in the ring at eight, though as a mascot for his family members.

Titan wants another shot at the Welterweight championship.

ESTO interviews Felino.

DTU announced an end of October/early November weekend tour of Veracruz.

Funcion Estelar interview Perro Negro Jr.

The lucha libre erotica on 10/03 show will charge 350 for general admission, 750 for ringside and 3500 for VIP room access. That last one is more than it cost to go ringside at the anniversary show, for a show with Canek Jr. & Huracan Ramirez Jr. in the main event. The person putting on the show is an adult film producer, and I don’t think it’s not really the wrestling they’re selling.


indy (THU) 10/15/2015 Auditorio Morelos, Aguascalientes, Aguascalientes
1) ?? vs ?
2) Aliado de Dios & Látigo vs Diva Salvaje & Miss Gaviota
3) Demoledor, Fly Metalik, Fly Warrior vs Centvrión, Emperador Azteca (IWRG), Metaleón
4) Dos Caras Sr., Golden Magic, Hijo De Dos Caras vs Aeroboy, Máscara Año 2000, Súper Nova
5) El Patrón Alberto & Hijo De Rey Misterio vs Dr. Wagner Jr. & Extreme Tiger

Not a TV taping and not something I’d ever expect to see results from, but obviously a little interesting with Alberto and Wagner on the same side. (The poster does the usual misleading bit to make you think it’s Rey Misterio Jr. in the main event.) It’s unusual to have this level of card in this building and Alberto hasn’t been working many indy shows in Mexico.

AAA on Televisa: 2015-08-15 

don’t yell at Flamita

Recapped: 08/19/2015

What happened? This was a lame duck show before TripleMania, but it did feature the debut (under a new name) of Fireball. It’ll still be a while before we figure out if this is a footnote or a meaningful.

What was good? That Fireball match was great and worth watching. Not just because of the guy normally known as Flamita either: if we ever get a full year of Steve Pain, he’d probably get some awards. The rest of the show was nothing special.

Where can I watch? It’s in my playlist, and it’s now up on AAA’s channel (as Puebla Parte 2).
