Got busy again today. Hopefully tomorrow is better. Reminder: live chat for the Anniversary show, starting around 7:45 pm CST. I’m planning for, like, 2 people to show up, so not really planning much at all. People are spotting it still on PPV, so we might actually have something to talk about.
Am I the only one surprised there’s no big Legends of 75 presentation tomorrow? They’ve been them all year, so it would make sense to bring names back for this show too. In other ‘hype’ articles, Panico says Perro and Mistico demanded to be on the Anniversary show in some way, and they’re sorta allies with the guys in the mask match.

CMLL (TUE) 09/16 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara

2) Rafaga b Carlo Roggi

4) Cien Caras Jr. & Euforia b Casanova & Rayman
5) Damián 666 & Mr. Águila b Gallo & Máximo
6) Marco Corelone b Texano Jr.
In the semimain, Damian faked a foul to win the second fall. Gallo tried to fake a foul in the third, but ended up getting fouled for real and pinned for the loss. Main event had Marco knock over the ref by accident. Texano took advantage to foul Marco, but Marco fouled him back before the referee recovered and covered for the pin.
Quick notes/corrections from Tuesday’s Arena Mexico show.
– it was Goddess who Sujei beat, not Apache, and she did it with a rope grab.
– Loco Max turned in the second fall, so it was a semifinal sweep for the rudos
(Notimex) Dr. Wagner hypes up his big singles match with LA Park: “I would have liked something else.” I’m fired up for that match now! Actually, it’s more along the lines of Wagner wishing this was a mask match. Wagner says he’s not been told to wrestle cleaner, because if they tell him he will because it’s an anniversary how. He’s also willing to defend his title against Terrible. Helpful random challenge, I guess.
(ESTO) Ultimo Guerrero could care less about the trios match; he wants a mask vs hair match versus Alex Shelley win or lose. I hope UG keeps talking about it because they’ve actually agreed on that match happening, but that doesn’t seem like SOP.
(Reforma via Jazzo) Lady Apache is sad and disappointing there’s no women’s match on the show. Lady Apache is sure the women are at the level to compete on the show, and sure the show would be better with the women AND the minis on it.
a fine job everyone’s doing selling this show. No wonder tickets are half off.
El Sol de San Luis confirms AAA taping there on 10/15, says lineup will be announced “something between today and tomorrow.” Meanwhile, AAA’s website says the winner of Chessman vs Cibernetico vs Mesias gets the next title shot. I’m rooting for Cibernetico to get a title shot against himself. At least it’d be a new feud.
Generic histoy of lucha libre in eight paragrpahs article. And another. ESTO looks back at recent big anniversaries. I’d love for someone to write about an anniversary before Cien/Rayo besides the first on the Shadow/Santo match.
(Reforma via Jazzo) luchadors pick the winner of tommorow’s match:
* Canek: tie, but since there can’t be a tie, Villano V
* Dos Caras: Blue Panther
* Pierroth: fearing a tie
* Super Muneco: Blue Panther

SoloLuchas picks the second match of Tommorow’s show. They need to speed it up a little. Sololuchas also looks back at Villano III vs Atlantis, not an anniversary match (but a Villano mask match.)
