Aramis & Imposible seem like a fun team though it took a while to get there.

It’s not reflected on this show, but seeing Super Nova here reminds that Argenis showed up to help on the Revolucion Lucha Libre show and then worked another indie show on Sunday. I would guess he’s on the same part-time plan with AAA as Super Nova/Bengala as others. AAA’s focused on a narrower group of wrestlers on TV of late, which has made for more coherent storylines, but it also means there’s a few people looking for work elsewhere. This seems to go back and forth over tiem.

I didn’t make it to the GALLI show, but +LuchaTV has the Fenix/Aeroboy match (Aeroboy winning the GALLI title back) and Penta/Rey Horus/Drago vs Gringo Loco, Golden Magic and Bandolero as getting money thrown in. They tried streaming the show on Facebook but it wasn’t working when I checked. Since +Lucha was there, I assume it’ll turn up on their channel in a month or so.

Tonight’s Arena Puebla show rematches last week’s main event. LA Park looked good against Ultimo Guerrero and will again team with Volador & Hijo de LA Park against Los Guerreros Laguneros. This seemed like it was setting up a singles match between Park & UG for next week, though CMLL’s changed directions along the way before. The semi-main is also a rematch, with the Chavez brothers again teaming with Valiente against Terrible, Bestia and Cavernario. That match ended in a draw when both captains were pinned at the same time last week

The rest of the show is the usual assortment of random matches. Audaz, Drone and Stigma team up against Misterioso, Sagrado, and Olimpico. The Gemelo Panteras are back teaming with Signo against Arakis, Super Astro and Pantera Blanca. Asturiano makes his first appearance here since November, teaming with Astro & Meyer against Black Tiger, Fuerza Chicana, and Policeman

The show still starts at 9 pm, which still is one hour after than usual if you changed your clock. There are only two more weeks of this time issue.

Diamante Azul has been removed from Tuesday’s main event. Volador Jr. is listed in his place now. Among his other issues, it has seemed at times that Diamante Azul has been limited by an injury of late.

El Grafico has an interview with Mexico State luchador John Tito, who started wrestling at the age of 10.

LuchaWorld has the latest Poster-Mania.


CMLL (SAT) 03/30/2019 Arena Coliseo
1) Acero & Aéreo vs Mercurio & Pequeño Nitro
2) Avispa Dorada, Lluvia, Sanely vs La Metálica, La Seductora, Tiffany
3) Black Panther, Blue Panther Jr., Flyer vs Pólvora, Universo 2000 Jr., Vangellys
4) Kráneo, Valiente, Volcano vs Felino, Negro Casas, Shocker
5) Soberano Jr. © vs Templario [MEX WELTER]
6th defense
6) Ephesto, Luciferno, Mephisto vs Atlantis, Atlantis Jr., Místico

The good thing about Soberano & Templario happening on the show that isn’t taped is I can imagine it being really good without having to deal with any Destroyers in reality. The bad thing about it is everything else.

What happened:

Star Fire Tiger suplex

After about 10 minutes, Rey Escorpión and Texano run in to attack La Parka. Laredo Kid tries to make the save and is quickly handled. Myzteziz, Vikingo, and Kahn-el-Mal try to help a couple of minutes later when Parka is loaded on the stretcher, and get beat up as well. Wagner sneaks in a foul on Demon, but the referee is down. Demon does the same, and the referee recovers to count the three.

Guevera stole Laredo’s mask to break up a Laredo Fly attempt, then landed the SSP to win. Cage attempted to chokeslam Guevera after the match and had to hold in place an awkward moment for Jack Evans & Australian Suicide to show up and break it up. Cage ended up beating up the Gringos after, then Myzteziz showed up after just in time to do some dives, which the cameras missed. After all that, Rey Escorpión, Daga and Texano beat up the tecnicos anyway. It was not the best executed post-match segment.

Carta Brava fouled Pimpinela with the referee turned away but then Máximo kissed Carta Brava and faked a foul to draw the same DQ

Australian Suicide and Sammy Guevera came to the ring beat up the tecnicos for no real reason afterward. It was a bit random, but they were there form a group with Jack Evans.



The main event was a long tedious brawl, taking about twice as long as it needed to be. The long and eventually pointless period before the run-ins could’ve been hacked down to a third of the size without losing anything. This is also at least the third time Los Mercenarios have destroyed La Parka, which hasn’t yet to really go anywhere. Demon played the técnico all match long and it got him a nice reaction for stealing the win but it really isn’t worth your time to watch most of this.

The Monster Clown/Aerostar trios match didn’t come across as anything special. It was generally performed well and they made Aerostar & Monsther Clown seem on the same level as the other four, but it just was a little less exciting than the match that preceded it. The Pagano table mishap is something only Pagano can provide.

The fourth match was good if pretty pinned to the purpose of the finish and not a lot more. Cage felt more a part of the post-match than the match itself, likely a consequence of his (unplanned) late arrival to the show. Daga wrestled Laredo Kid a lot and it is easy to look good doing that, but he came off less important than Guevera and Texano, who has having fun bullying around Vikingo. The post-match mayhem kind of drove home the idea that none of those rudos are actually partners and most everyone should be teaming with someone else, but it was good for a grab-bag match.

The exoticos match served its purpose as comedy break between more serious matches. They’ve managed to get something out of Pimpinela, who looked very much done this time last year. They get a reaction and that’s the idea. Poder del Norte seem out of the trios title picture for the moment so perhaps they should get used to being foils for this técnico team.


The tercera was another action trios match, with Myzteziz the best of the técnico side and Taurus looking good mauling people. Kind of weird that Taurus got the win since he’s the one non-Villano in the match with not going on but maybe that’s the answer. Villano had a hilariously bad moment on a giant swing but otherwise was fine. I was more excited about Jack/Sammy/Suicide challenging for the trios title than this match afterward.

The women’s tag match was pretty good, a lot of action packed in a little bit of time, with everything looking sharp. There’s a huge difference in how impactful everything looks here compared to CMLL. The team members seemed to just pass each other on the way in and out of the ring, but that worked with the story of Keyra & Faby Apache fighting after the match. Star Fire had a better performance than the last time out, looking at the level of the other luchadoras. This is another situation where Shani seems a bit in the background and it never seemed close to ending until it suddenly did, but it was a typically good performance otherwise.

Dinastia got a showcase match in the opener. Baby Xtreme (who must really love that name if he used it on AAA TV instead of Demonio del Aire) and Orquidea got a few moments. This was mostly Dinastia getting to show off a lot of offense in exchange for being bumped to the dark match. He did well and Baby Xtreme made it thru a match without getting hurt. It seems like the first time I’ve seen him manage that. Orquidea did kiss spots but not much else standard exotico bits.
