Not much going on today. IWRG is still off midweek. CMLL has a show in Arena Xalapa with Estetas vs Averno, Dragon Rojo, and Rey Escorpion. AAA tapes Sunday.
The ‘all CMLL’ show from the FantasticaMania tour has made it’s way to DailyMotion. I haven’t watched it but reviews aren’t great; they used a smaller ring for the small building and it threw things off.
Fuerza Guerrera did an interview with Terra pushing the idea of doing a mask match with Octagon. Yes, the year is 2014. They’ve been teasing this match, off and on, for 23 years. I noticed the article because Octagon RT-ed it on Twitter. It’s never going to happen unless Fuerza is willing to lose his mask (Octagon’s unlikely to want to lose him and AAA may not want him to do it) and I’m not sure how big a deal it would be.
El Santo held his annual meeting at the Santo statue, along with a mass in his father’s memory. Besides the anniversary of Hijo del Santo’s death, yesterday was also Fray Tormenta’s 70th birthday.

Full lineup for the show. Eterno replaces Cerbero Negro; the last mention I heard was he was still in the hospital but that was a while ago. (It also means AAA & CMLL luchadors on the same show though I’m not sure what Eterno’s official status is.) This is the announced card order but we’ve seen that change depending on if/when the CMLL guys need to get to their Sunday show. Very excited for a lot of this matches.
