como estaz 4×16: ultima lucha

Rob and I did another one of these, right after LU ended, because I thought I would have a lot energy to get out about the show. I did, but it was for more positive than I was guessing. We spent about 80 minutes talking about the finale and where it leaves Lucha Underground, and about 20 minutes talking about everything else.

The audio’s actually decently balanced this time! I need to either make my mic less sensitive or stop messing with things which make clicking noises during the show. Don’t worry, the audio will surely be worse next time we do this, in a few weeks.

como estaz 4×15: hell of war

Rob and I finally return to talk about the best match on this Lucha Underground season, CMLL being on hiatus, AAA’s recent shows, and The Crash’s upcoming ones. This podcast goes about 100 minutes, no matter how many times I say it went two hours.

The audio gets unbalanced later on. I know what’s going wrong now at least, maybe I’ll get it right someday.

Rob’s Mexico schedule:


como estaz 4×14: fake sombras

In the July edition of the como estaz podcast, Rob and I talked about Lucha Underground, Ricochet’s comments and how confident (or not) we are about Season 4 at this point. We talk about AAA, it’s lack of coherence and try to figure where it too will be in a couple months. And we talk about Fake Sombras, why CMLL might be having them, and who might behind them. If you make it all the way to the end, you’ll get some talk about the better matches Rob’s watched lately (and Rob trying to intervene to get me to stop watching bad Puebla shows.)

The audio’s a little unbalanced, but I cleaned up with the Levelator a bit. You may have to crank it up a little bit to hear both of us.

Thanks for listen, and we’ll be back in a month.

como estaz 4×13: car vandalism edition

There’s only one rule on this podcast: whenever two main eventers and one Bobby Villa get fired, we’ll get around to doing a podcast again. (There are actually many rules.) Rob and I go over the saga of Ultimo Guerrero’s blue mustang for an hour, recapping what we know and what we think it might mean. (Something finally broke well for AAA? Kinda?) The back half of the show includes a discussion of our level of Lucha Underground excitement (spoiler: mild), the billion angles going on in AAA at once, and the disappointing lack of progress in indie footage availability.

I accidentally dropped a Lucha Underground spoiler in that discussion; I edited it out, but you do get to hear me talking about having to edit it out. It’s safe but you can yell at me later.

Thanks for listening. We’ll be back in a month.

como estaz 4×12: marzo

Rob & talk about the upcoming CMLL & AAA big shows, other upcoming events in lucha and good matches we’ve seen lately. Well, he’s seen lately, I’m busy watching Puebla. The podcast goes about 110 minutes. Rob’s connection has some problems in the first part of the podcast and drops out a couple times. It’s better later, though I didn’t do a great job of mixing it. It’s still OK.

como estaz 4×11: Terry’s friend Gersom

(this is not Gersom)

Rob & TKD are back in Mexico, and they bring along Black Terry Jr. and Gersom of Sensacional de Luchadors to talk about the shows they’ve seen the first couple days of the trip. I ask questions along the way. There’s discussing of the Friday night Lucha Libre Boom show, Juventued Guerrera’s Super X show (with a strange referee), and Saturday night in Arena Coliseo. Plus, we talk with Gersom about how got into filming lucha libre and discuss how we think the current rise in paid lucha libre content is going to work out. The podcast runs just about two hours.

Thanks for listening. We’ll be back in a month, if not sooner.


como estaz 4×10: Enero

Rob and I back to talk about lucha libre things going on right now. We’re both excited for FantasticaMania, I force Rob to talk about Guerra de Titanes, he tries to get me to make an actual decision about WrestleMania plans, I complain too much about Lucha Underground and indies promotion as well. The podcast is about 90 minutes, which is not something we’re purposefully aiming for but works out nicely.

Thanks for listening.

como estaz 4×9: DTU Nuev9

Right after last night’s iPPV concluded, Rob and I discussed the entire DTU9 show: the matches and the iPPV stream. We both liked the show, and you really should at least check out the free pre show that’s still up on +LuchaTV’s channel. The recap is mostly coherent for something that didn’t get done until past 2AM eastern, and a little longer than I thought it’d be.

We used Google Hangouts to record the show, and I think I still need to get used to waiting for a few seconds for the recording to start. Sorry for the abrupt opening.

como estaz 4×8: November catch up

Rob and I return to talk about Elite, CMLL, AAA and Lucha Underground. We did this last night, I spend a few hours trying to get the audio to not suck, and now I don’t even recall exactly what talked about now. A lot of frustration with the current state of stuff, but we tried to point out stuff we liked too.

The audio, though – I think recorder program grabbed my laptop mic instead of the nice one, and I really regret not stopping to see how it was going early on. It’s not good but I think it’s still listenable. I’ll try something else next time.

como estaz 4×7: Chairo 5

In the midst of sleep deprivation and rebooking flights, Rob and I talked about Sunday night’s Chairo 5 show. We go thru the whole card and the experience of being at the show. It’s bit of a rush and just about the last thing I did in Mexico before heading to the airport, but hopefully it’s still listenable.

This was recorded early Monday, but I gave up on the internet at the hotel and then feel asleep for the rest of the day. Thanks for listening.
