This show went on as scheduled, but it was switched to a no-fans show in the hours prior. +LuchaTV says the no fans policy was an IWRG call, so not a commission/government one. They’re planning on continuing to run shows with no fans on Thursdays and Sunday as long as they’re allowed. Those shows will also be streamed. I had this on in the background while doing other stuff and it sounded fine, but I’ve had no desire to actually enjoy wrestling this past week. I’m sure I’ll be back on it soon.

This sounds like a fun show based on Doradafan’s posts.
Both CMLL Tuesday shows are canceled.
The free Lucha Libre Tlahuac show has not been canceled as of yet. They haven’t said anything on Facebook in a few days either way.
AAA shows at Vive Latino are the final ones for the time being. Cancelations started trickling out today: San Luis Potosi postponed, Mexicali called theirs off one day after announcing the poster. AAA simplified things this morning: all events are off for the time being. They say the Nacemos Para Luchar tour and talk about the Torreon taping specifically, but all AAA shows are done for now. That Mexicali show was 04/24, so this is going to be over a month. AAA is scheduled to tape the next day on 04/25, which was announced on the AAA/MLW/EMW show. AAA and the promotion haven’t announced it yet, so it may be canceled without even being mentioned elsewhere. +LuchaTV confirmed that the 04/04 taping was scheduled to be in Mexico City and was canceled before it was ever announced.
Lady Flammer says she’s temporarily retiring from lucha libre. There’s an obvious reason why a young woman would be stepping away from wrestling but she says that’s all she wants to say right now so I’ll pass too.
Puma King has a vlog on is about trip to Europe. The shut down is going to be hard on vloggers.
+LuchaTV has this week’s En+carados.
I suspect there will not be a lot of news left to report starting tomorrow. I have a bunch of CMLL b-show recaps and the like left to post and I’ve been working through the old magazines. I’ll come up with something if more to give myself something to do instead of looking at Twitter all day. Hope it helps you too.
