Ciclope wins the title, ending Violento Jack’s 500+ day reign. Violento falls on his 6th defense. Said to be a good match. Miedo Extremo congratulated his ally Ciclope but asked for a title shot. Violento Jack felt he should get his rematch first. Aeroboy came in as well, suggested a four way with masks and hair on the line for the DTU Anniversary show.

That DTU 8th anniversary show will be held on 12/19 in Arena Lopez Mateos. It reads as though both apuesta matches will occur. Maravilla was taken off tomorrow’s AAA TV taping some time right, which might have to do with her being free for this show – or maybe it’s just normal lucha randomness.

AAA held it’s first Mexican Madness show last night in Guadalajara. Rudos won the main event. Attendance looks a little low in the pictures they’ve posted. Running a new weekly show against Elite (even at a reduced lineup) and when there’s also an AAA spot show in the area on Saturday makes for a challenging debut. I can’t recall them mentioning these shows on TV either.

There aren’t full results from the Elite show in Guadalajra last night, but Laredo Kid had a nice Twitter post with photos of him with Aerostar from earlier in this week and with Pegasso & Rey Cometa on this show.

Today’s CMLL main event was supposed to be Sombra & Volador teaming up against La Mascara & Rush. CMLL even had Sombra & Volador on CMLL Informa to talk about that specific match. That’s not the match that’s happening. Mistico’s been moved into La Mascara’s spot in the main event. The CMLL preview notes the last minute change but doesn’t attempt to explain it. This seems to make the match more workable; Sombra previously would have to either not participate in the match or behave in a way he hasn’t in the last two years. There’s probably a Rush/Sombra spot they’re building to for the finish, but the match is better if Sombra isn’t fighting with La Mascara for 10 minutes before that.

La Mascara drops down to Mistico’s spot in the semifinal. That makes him partners with the return Diamante Azul and Super Parka, who’ve the Ingobernabels have been hassling since his return. They face the Peste Negra team of Felino, Mr. Niebla and Negro Casas. Ultimo Guerrero is still listed as wrestling, teaming with Euforia & Gran Guerrero versus Thunder, Bobby Z and Dragon Rojo. A CMLL big December show would be 4-6 weeks away, so it’s possible they could move forward on the UG/Thunder feud otnight.

El Pancracio interviews Syuri, who hints towards a (REINA) tag title match with her and Silueta defending against Zeuxis & Dalys. Those four just so happen to match up tonight, with Marcela and Tiffany rounding out the trios match. The Panther & Super Comando continue their feud in the segunda.

CMLL’s show is ‘back’ to starting at 8:30pm CT, if you changed your clocks back an hour this past week. (If your clock doesn’t change, it’s stuck at the new hour until March. Look here if you’re confused.) The show will air on ClaroSports. I do not know if it’ll be blocked for non-Mexico viewers, but it has been the last few times on this website and I’d bet on it happening again. (It does appear there’s a block on videos up now.) I may not be able to record this week’s show.

AAA tapes tonight in Xalapa. It’s a weird lineup, with Brodus (Clay) and Low-Ki working this show because they’re around for the ZZInc show the next day. The main event is Fenix, Psycho Clown, Rey Mysterio Jr. versus Johnny Mundo, Low-Ki and Pentagon Jr. Mundo wasn’t on Monday’s taping and it’s still not clear why. This week’s AAA show teased a Low-Ki/Mysterio feud, so it may not be a one off for him; another trios match like this be on Guerra de Titanes. The semimain is a bizarre Drago, Murder Clown, and Speedball versus Brodus, Mesias and Taurus trios. The full card is here, and the show will air on TV on November 21st.

Flamita will be on that show and has agreed to work with AAA going forward. He can’t work on shows with CMLL wrestlers so he’s off of Cara Luchas show this Saturday, with Angel de Oro stepping up to the main event to replace him. Golden Magic’s new opponent is to be determined. Cara Lucha posted a video explaining the change, making them more professional than the average lucha libre promotion. There’s a promo with Flamita at the end of that video apologizing.

Flamita working with AAA means he’s almost certainly going to be part of the next Lucha Underground season at some point. There’s no mention of where this leaves him with Dragon Gate.

Flamita is working the ZZInc show on Saturday instead of that CaraLucha show. It appears there’s the usual level of AAA disorganization involved; the Wrestling Observer mentioned Roderick Strong double booked himself for that date, because he hadn’t heard back from AAA for a long time and got himself another option, but will work the show as well. Another  unnamed indy wrestler is mentioned as having the same issue.

AAA hasn’t posted new TV yet, but has posted a music video of the latest Ring and Rock stars show. The music they use is the Ingobernables theme song. That’s odd.

An AAA interview with Hijo del Pirata Morgan explains his storyline: he felt like he fit better with Steve Pain & Daga and with La Sociedad in general. Electroshock told him he wanted to continue the Holocausto, Pirata told Electroshock he wasn’t interested and Pirata feels he made the right decision since Electroshock was such a terrible rudo that he joined the tecnicos by the end of the night.

I remembered AAA has an online store. They’ve barely mentioned it since TripleMania and haven’t updated it since then. Of the eight people features, two are no longer in AAA (Alberto & Myzteziz), Perro had passed away before the store went up (and you had to go somewhere else to get his shirt), and Sexy Star hadn’t wrestled with the promotion for months before yesterday.

Lucha Memes & Arena Pepe Cisnerso will promote a show in Puebla’s Arena Coliseo San Ramon on 11/20. Pagano versus Rey Apocalispis vs Tigre Rojo Jr. main events.

Lucha Memes also announced they’d have Caifan vs Hechicero on their 11/22 Arena Lopez Mateos show.

RCH has added the brother incredible pairs match of Pentagon Jr. & Fenix versus Texano Jr. & Super Nova ot it’s 12/03 Arena Naucalpan show.

Lucha World recaps this week’s CMLL Informa, where Ultimo Guerrero’s injury was explained for a moment. They also have KrisZ’s news update.

Segunda Caida explains how trios matches work.

Fenix credits Lucha Underground with making him world famous.

Shocker and Zumbido meeting before their match on 11/22.

Magnus would like to face Matt Sydal.

CMLL on 2015-10-09 

Shockercito & Demus magic

Recapped: 10/31/2015

What happened: Mistico I returned. That was a thing!

Atlantis advanced to the final of the CMLL Universal tournament. Heddi Karaoui debuted with a win. Shockercito beat Demus before their hair match next week.

Everyone attacked Mistico all night, including his Sky Team partners destroying his mask multiple times. This was then never mentioned again.

Also, between his three tournament matches, Mephisto wrestled for 18:33 on this show.

What was good: Not Mephisto wrestling for 18:33. Tournament lucha was no good (and so I gave up writing notes on it), but the show prior to it had good action. I really liked the minis opener.

Where can I watch it: It’s on my YouTube channel, in both live and TV versions, and there’s fancams linked as well. Read More
