I don’t get 52MX, so there’s no way I can actually check if my listings are right. I don’t get the Fox Sports show anymore, and while we occasionally do get comments mentioning what aired (and very much appreciate it, every time), it’s going to be equally tough to check. Knowing one, I could guess at the other. Knowing neither, it’s just a random guess. In the long run, if DVDs turn up at slambamjam.com or somewhere else, I can go back and correct my listings, but it doesn’t really help you when the shows originally air. And it may not matter, because if no one actually can see a channel, listings for it are kinda pointless. It’s only what actually is listed on eventually DVD that matters. Not sure if I should bother giving listings for those channels.
And AAA’s in it’s own tough to predict world for the next month. Starting with this show (and kinda last week’s), we’re in a set of five straight episodes that are half of TV tapings. I can tell you the TV taping and the main event, since it airs on Accion, but I’m guessing blind on the other matches and there doesn’t seem to be a pattern there.
So I’m wonder, how useful are these posts (and chart) at this point? CMLL’s main show (top 3) and C3 (top 4) are pretty academic. All I’m doing now is putting all the information on one page, which feels like a significant drop off from putting all the (mostly) accurate information in one place.
To oddly mix in some positive news: as suspected, Televisa is only airing RAW on Monday nights. This puts AAA back to 3 hours, and I have no idea what they’re going to do with the extra time these next two weeks. Hopefully, this will settle AAA down, both in the “show the openers and stop clipping everything” sense and the “stop freaking out about WWE and thinking lots and lots of talking is the only way to compete”. You gotta hope.
Things I wish I knew existed years ago: this page, on esmas.com (where I’ve been plenty), has seemingly accurate listings for all the channels. Not just all the Televisa channels, all the channels in Mexico they can get listings for, in a much more readable (if harder to navigate) guide.
AAA-US: second part of GdT, which means Jack & Teddy challenge for the tag titles yet again, AAA Batista debuts, and Mesias vs Zorro for the title.
52MX: Minis probably should follow here, as well as Guerreros/Niebla vs Shocker/Toscano/Volador
CMLL: Sombra/Mistico/Volador vs Hijos, Garza/Fantasma/Mascara vs Hijos/Metal, Dorada/Purpura/Valiente vs Felino/Okumura/Virus. A good time to be a high flying tecnico. Or to watch them.
AAA-MEX: First part of the last taping of the year.
FOX: As far as I can tell, this is still airing in Mexico. It’s listed on Fox Sports Latin American’s schedule grid and on esmas’. They could be lagging behind, but they’re not on the US airing.
Women’s match, Terrible/Texano/Virus vs Dorada/Sagrado/Valiente. The lightning matches have been airing here and I have it listed, but I believe both matches went three falls, which wouldn’t leave much time for it.
C3: Minis Reyes de Aire, what more do you need?
