8:41, straight falls. Los Ingobernables beat up Diamante Azul for almost all of the match, finally being DQed for using a vendor’s tray of potato chips as a weapon. They took out Tirantes as well, and left Diamante Azul without his mask.
Show had all good matches or building matches for next week. CMLL’s running a lot of feuds which aren’t taking place on Homenaje a Dos Leyendas. Azul finally getting his revenge on Pierroth next week is a lock.
R de Rudo has a report on The Crash show in Aguascalientes on Thursday. The main event was changed to Rey Mysterio & Penta el Zero M vs Willie Mack & Brian Cage to keep La Rebellion on the same team. Elsewhere on the show, a triangle match between Lady Maravilla, Keira, Sexy Star had no finish, with Konnan setting up a cage match with all three on the 03/25 Tijuana show. Maybe Brooke will be in that too.
The Crash’s 04/05 show will be in Gimnasio Juan de la Barrera according to Dr. Landru and Tercera y Definitiva. That had been the rumor going around, with the reason partly to specifically run AAA’s home Mexico City arena with the guys who used to be in AAA.
Rey Mysterio told the media post match that he only wants to wrestle for The Crash in Mexico. The Crash confirmed it’s alliance with Impact Wrestling.
Aguascalientes also appears to be the home for a Night of Champions show Elite teased weeks ago. This Facebook page is promoting it, with Blue Demon, Cibernetico, Violento Jack and Golden Magic announced. If it’s all the way in Aguascalientes, it’s unlikely to be a taped show.
AAA says their TV show airs about an hour early today at 4:30pm. (Televisa hasn’t updated their listings to reflect this, but that’s Mexican TV networks.) AAA’s preview/open is evasive about what matches will air – which makes sense, so many matches changed during the show – but it implies the Super Fly/Bengala and Faby Apache/Ricky Marvin matches will be airing. They’ve also posted the La Llave de la Gloria segment from this week’s TV show.
Today’s shows include the debut lucha libre show for Baracal, also in Gimnasio Juan de la Barrera. Rush versus LA Park is the main event, in what should be a crazy match. Wagner & Park had some crazy matches in the same location back when Todo x el Todo was a thing. The show will honor the original Pierroth, with the new one wrestling in the semifinal.
Coliseo has the Panthers versus the the Hijos del Infierno for the Mexican Trios Championship. This would seem like a decent time for a title change – it’s the right challengers, the rudos don’t seem to want the belts – but CMLL is teasing similar title matches in Puebla and Guadalajara, so it’s unlikely the titles would change hands here.
Indie shows include XMW running in Salon Citalli, with Toxico vs Wotan as the main event. There’s a usual crazy tag match underneath too.
Vice Mexico has a long interview with Sanely. It’s more focused on how she got in shape for fitness competitions. There’s a lot about diet and supplements, with the big point being she was much more successful and changing her body once she started working with a trainer instead of trying to figure it out on her own. A big revelation is snuck in the end; Sanely looks in her 20s in her mask and in the ring thanks to her work on her body, but she’s actually 35.
Arena Coliseo Guadalajara announced it’ll now be Ray Mendoza who’s honored on March 21. Americo Rocca had been announced a few days ago.
Fuego en el Ring has Gallo on the latest podcast.
Segunda Caida watches some Elite.

Nothing new on this card, but you’re used to seeing here so here it is. Remember, if you’re a person who only checks out Friday nights (and yet somehow still read this entire blog entry), this show will only be up after it takes places and it’ll be taking place an hour later than usual.
