Recapped: 2016-03-08

What happened: Kraneo fouled Marco in the main event. And that’s about it.

What was good: I liked the main event. Parts of other matches were good and made this non-dreadful to watch, but nothing came together for a complete match.

Where can I watch it: It’s on CMLL’s YouTube. Matches will air on MegaSports next Monday.

Recapped: 02/16/16

What happened: Zeuxis suffered a foot injury in the lightning match. It looked serious, though Silueta went on with a planned title challenge for next week. Hijos del Infierno cheated to beat the Divinos Laguneros, which may set up a rematch next week.

Caristico made his return to Tuesday shows. Raijin made his streaming debut. Both looked fine.

What was good: Nothing really. I liked the main event the best but even that was a not worth going out of your of watching. There were parts of matches that were good but nothing came together and some stuff fell apart.

Where can I watch it: It’s on CMLL’s YouTube channel. Read More

What happened: Thunder cheated to beat Mr. Niebla in the main event trios. And that’s it – unless they’re bringing that back another week, there’s no new program set up.

What was good: Hechicero/Delta lightning match was the best match on the show. The rest was forgettable.

Where can I watch it: It’s on CMLL’s YouTube channel.

CMLL YouTube lightning matches from August & September

Recapped: 09/12/2015

Dark Angel STRONG

What happened? They’re lightning matches, nothing happened. That’s kind of the deal. CMLL stopped posting them for no particular reason, but I had already caught up by now.

What was good? Most of this was the generic lightning match stuff, but the Dark Angel/Zeuxis match was Dark Angel’s last really good match in CMLL.

Where can I watch? They’re all on CMLL’s YouTube channel. Links are below. Read More
