Match looks like the Volador match in highlights.

Azteca7 actually posted this week’s Lucha Azteca 7 episode on their website, but it won’t play for me. Region blocked, maybe?

Octagon Jr. says any problems are between Octagon and AAA, and not him.

Marco wants Rush’s hair.

Super Astro restaurant has moved.

LuchaWorld has the news update.

Super Libre talked what it means to be a legend.

A show at the end of April has Super Porky, Rocky Casas, ex-AAA Carta Brava Jr and Goya Kong and current AAA Nino Hamburguesa. I can’t see that happening unless Hamburguesa is quitting AAA, and there’s been no mention of that. Also odd that the pregnant Goya Kong is listed as wrestling.

Rayo Star won the Mucha Lucha championship on the CaraLucha comes to Guadalajara show

Skalibur took Ryan Kidd’s hair.

El Desperado, who’s our old friend Namajague, posted a photo of his mask in Arena Mexico with no explanation.

A Mexico City Twitter account said CMLL shows would be coming to malls soon. Also, no explanation.

Now that Joker is an Occidente champion, his Mexico City counterpart Wasson wants a rematch.

Hey, a Torneo FILL with a big conclusion. Guessing the two other Infernales are Bombero’s sons under (another) new identity.

great match roundup, week of 2016-03-12

I bumped Muertes/Fenix up after the fact. I saw it on the same level of Rush/Maximo and Volador/Casas. Maybe I rated them too high; I don’t feel like any of them are going to be my favorite match of the year, but definitely in the top 20.
