fifth defense. good match.
The main was said to be Rush’s best effort in a long time. The rest of the show doesn’t sound like much; the tag title match picked up in the third fall, the opening matches weren’t any good.
Nothing as exciting as the title matches on CMLL’s today show, but likely next week. Barbaro Cavernario and Niebla Roja continue to face off in the main event, headed to a singles match seven days from now if everything goes like normal. Marco, Diamante Azul, Euforia and Felino fit around them.
The semimain could be a pretty good match, with Stuka, Fuego and Guerrero Maya teaming up against Puma, Tiger and Hechicero in a match where everyone is pretty good.
Drone takes on Raziel in the lightning match. The women’s match tonight is Marcela, Princesa Sugehit, Lady Maravilla faces Tiffany, Amapola and Reina Isis in her first streamed match since May. (She was in Japan for REINA, then her return was one of the canceled shows.) The minis match is Fantasy & Angelito (first stream since July) taking on Pequeno Nitro & Pequeno Violencia. In between, Magnus, Astral, and Metatron are scheduled to face Nitro, Espanto and Canelo Casas, but it seems unlikely Canelo Casas will actually appear. The show streams on YouTube at 7:30pm.
LuchaWorld has this week’s Poster-Mania.
Lucha Memes announced it’s first show for it’s 11/20 Chairo 11 show
In other important Lucha Memes news: we now know what a La Huachimolera is.
Tonight is the first of the two 4DX airings of the Lucha Undergound finale, and they’re even going to do a pre-show for it on Facebook Live. This is probably just a red carpet entrance thing. (If you’re going, please be kinda enough to wait 24 hours to talk about anything that happens. If someone’s managed to go 15 months without getting the finale spoiled, let them have one more day)
Fly Warrior’s semifinal opponent Sunday in the Powerbomb.TV Independent Championship will be Jonathan Gresham, who attacked and unmasked Fly Warrior back at the first Powerbomb.TV show. This show also has x.
