CMLL Puebla: 2016-02-22

proof Caristico was really there
proof Caristico was really there

Recapped: 02/22/2016

What happened: Caristico made the save after Atlantis was fouled in the main event, with a tease of a match versus Ultimo Guerrero (or a tag match with Atlantis & Rey Bucanero.) Zeuxis tossed her mask to draw a DQ from Princesa Sugehit in the women’s match.

A Homenaje a Dos Leyendas press conference was announced for Wednesday at Noon (Central). The main event of the show is expected to be announced.

What was good: Not much. This was a show that ranged from boring to bad. I liked the opener, but even it was not as good as usual. It is possible CMLL used up all it’s energy for the next six months on Friday and we are very well doomed now.

Where can I watch it: It’s on CMLL’s channel. It’ll air on 52MX in a couple weekends. Read More

AAA on Televisa: 2016-02-20 

Aerostar reverse
Aerostar makes this look too easy

Recapped: 02/20/16

What happened: Fenix, Aerostar and Drago defeated the trios champions and asked for a title shot. They were told no. Joe Lider & Pentagon Jr., attempting to do the same with the tag team titles, instead loss. Pentagon blamed Lider for the loss and they came close to fighting.

ALSO, I managed to get the AAA recap up on the first weekday after it aired, a miracle. 

What was good: I enjoyed the minis match and the trios match.

Where can I watch it: It’s on AAA’s YouTube channel.

Previously: Taya & Daga challenged for a Mixed title shot, which put them in the sights of Pentagon Junior. Daga threw a chair very hard at Australian Suicide. Taya & Daga got that mixed title shot. Blue Demon Jr. got a spot on Rey de Reyes due to issues with Psycho & Demon. Read More

7) Crazy Boy, Flamita, Súper Crazy b Danger, Joe Lider, Toro Negro Jr.
Team DTU (kind) won the last three matches, evening the night at 3-3.

Flamita was a late sub for Ricky Marvin. They switched around the match from a 3 way tag to a trios so they could do the 3v3 face off. Not a great turnout for this show; I wonder if the other indie shows this weekend hurt of the promotion versus promotion bit was not as big a deal as people thought. Not sure about the lineup in the fourth match, FWIW.

No IWRG results. They’ll turn up at some point.

Tonight’s Puebla show has Atlantis, La Mascara & Rush taking on Rey Bucanero, Ultimo Guerrero and Vangellys. (Vangellys is against the Ingobernables on Monday and teaming with them on Friday in CMLL’s usual style.) Last week’s semimain ended with Bucanero fouling Rush, so perhaps they’re heading to a singles match between those two. It’s undercard of matches which might be good if everything breaks right, including Dragon Lee, Titan and Maximo versus the Hijos del Infierno. Locals opener has Asturiano & Milenium versus Espiritu Maligno & Fuerza Chicana, which should be fun. Show starts at 9pm, there will be a link on

In an interview about Lucha Underground, Mark Burnett says they need to have a way for people to watch the series from episode 1, and make it easy to find and available. I guess the news is even the people at the top know this is a necessity, but it’s about 18 months since it aired (and plenty of months of prep work before that) and no one’s still managed to get it done.

Segunda Caida reviews Atlantis, Blue Panther, Negro Casas vs Black Terry, Negro Navarro, Solar I.

AIW will have Raymond Rowe versus Pentagon Jr. on March 18th.

Rey Misterio Sr. was honored in Rosarito.

The main events aren’t my style, but both four and five should be pretty fun matches. Fourth is NJPW trainees on loan versus a former NOAH foreign and a one time Dragon Gate guest.
