CMLL shows canceled this weekend, Santo postponement

Tonight’s CMLL’s show is canceled. So are Saturday’s and Sunday’s Mexico city show. Ovaciones reports CMLL will decide on Monday if they’re running a show on Tuesday. If they’re not deciding until Monday, that probably means Puebla is off.

CMLL will continue to accept supplies tonight from 10-6. They’re looking for medicine for pets, babe food, water and tools. Many other wrestling arenas are accepting supplies as well.

Skandalo, who hasn’t been seen in the ring since March and is believed to dealing with an eye injury, was among those collecting supplies.

IWRG luchador Blue Monsther was among those helping remove debris from a collapsed garment factory in Mexico City. He said he’d normally be teaching at a gym but felt his energy could be better used there. People working at the site have found twenty bodies and saved four people.

There’s also a story involving CMLL luchador Nitro, though I’m not exactly sure what it is. Rey Bucanero wrote something about Nitro risking his life and safety to save others. He apparently got hurt while saving two other people, but is safe now.

Fenix and Penta have canceled their appearances in Australia this week to stay with their families.

El Hijo del Santo says his show in Tulancingo scheduled for tomorrow will now be held next Thursday (09/28) at the request of the government. They’ll give a 25% ticket discount with an item donation for earthquake relief. Santo will be part of a mass in front of his father today, and will visit the Santo statue tomorrow.

The FULL show scheduled for Saturday has been postponed to 10/21.

The Crash announced their next Tijuana show ill now be held on October 5th (a Thursday, two days earlier) and tickets will be free for donations of earthquake relief supplies.

DTU resumed their shows in Xalapa. Trey Miguel kept his Rockstar Pro title over Pardux and Toto. Los Masizos may be splitting up. They won the main event over Ovett, Halloween and Shlak, but Crazy King stole the pin from Ciclope.


AAA Japan announced non-tournaments matches for the 10/10 Lucha World Cup
King Cuerno vs Angelico
Danny Jones, Diego, Sumrise Natsu vs Taylor Adams, Rekka, and Heidi Katrina

I guess that means Cuerno and Angelico aren’t in the proper tournament itself, but should have a pretty good match. It also helps explains why Angelico is still in AAA at the moment. This show, and the 10/09 show the previous day, also pop up on DJZ’s upcoming schedule. Also, this is my required mention that this show is less than 3 weeks away, the Mexico side of AAA has still not acknowledged these shows are happening at all, and that seems concerning.

AAA’s weekend in Riveria Maya starts this weekend.

R de Rudo’s Mauricio Rebollo writes about what he’s seen in Mexico City the last couple days. He was in a walkway connecting two buildings when the earthquake happened, which sounds like a place I really would not want to be. SuperLuchas has photos of destruction from Morelos, the epicenter of the earthquake.

Full card for the debut in Sinaloa. Villa & Banderas are in from Guadalajara (but work here for indies some times.)

Can ZSJ finally beat a Mexican? Probably not. I think the card would’ve been more interesting with ZSJ vs Alberto and Santo vs Silver King, but Sabre probably is just here because he’s a indie name people in charge have heard of but not actually seen.
