FMLL

This Sunday, there’s a lucha libre card at the Congress Theatre. I’ve mentioned it before, but in case you’re still unaware

(ongoing thread about it on CPW.)

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to go to a show, so I was actually considering this. The main event is scary – Rayo and Mil are two guys firmly entrenched the ‘living on their reps’ stage of their career. I’m sure there will be plenty of people there who grew up watching them and seeing them in person will take them back to those warm happy memories, but I didn’t, so I’m just left with a bad match. Even still, the undercard could be fun…

…except, as I called when I first mentioned this show, the Bears are playing the same day. It’s not the same time, but the Bears game is pretty much the day. If they win, I want to stick around my TV to find out who they’re playing, and if they lose, I will hate the world and not want to deal with the pain of getting to the Congress Theatre from where I live.

Why aren’t they running on Saturday? They’re running on Friday in LA, so there’s either a show FMLL isn’t mentioning on their site, or they’re just paying Mil and Rayo and the others to hang out for a day. I’m not sure which is better.

I am entertained by them not bothering to announce matches for the undercard. Since they’re no better than half right and don’t mean anything, that’s probably for the best. It’s still too bad they haven’t figured how to announce a start time – that poster lists 6 (bell time?) and AdC’s site goes with 5 (doors open?)

If you check it on Sunday, let me know how it goes.
