Como Estaz 3×10: daylight savings chat

right click to download/rss

We’re back to talk about the upcoming major shows. RobViper and I break down Homenaje a Dos Leyendas & Rey de Reyes and where it leaves both companies going forward. We also talk about the Chairo shows, ChilangaMask Elite and other things going on.

The podcast goes about 100 minutes. I stumble around for the first few minutes – ironically as I talk about much better podcasts – but get better as we go along.

Como Estaz 3×9: third rail

RobViper and I talk for two hours (?!?!) about AAA, Lucha Underground and various speculation on both. We talk about maybe vacant titles, maybe disappeared foreign stars, and other things which maybe would cause trouble if everyone else wasn’t paying attention to Daniel Bryan anyway. RobViper has a rant about CMLL, I complain (again) about people paying attention to stuff that doesn’t really matter in a stream of consciousness that never seems to end. Nothing is really solved. We talk about the Guerra de Titanes show and answer some questions too. Hopefully this podcast still matters by the time you listen to it.

Como Estaz 3×8: upcoming attractions

right click to download

RobViper and I talk for about 90 minutes about the big shows. There’s less craziness going on this time, so we talk detail about the FantasticaMania shows, the Guerra de Titanes lineup, and the upcoming Lucha Underground season (with very slight spoilers.) We try to figure out if there’s going to be any title changes in Japan, what might be the best way forward for the AAA heavyweight title and I randomly figure out when Ultima Lucha 2 is airing for no apparent reason.

I’m less sick than I was, but still sick enough to be loudly drinking water on air. Only one moment where I seemed like I might die on air via coughing, so that’s good. No opening music, so you can get straight into the awkward opening. We’ll be back at some point.

Como Estaz 3×7: bad trade or worst trade?

La Sombra/2015-10-30

Right click to download.

RobViper and I unload our DM conversations into audio format for about 100 minutes. We talk about the departure of La Sombra, the Arena Mexico arrival of Cibernetico, the oddness of the Guerra de Titanes lineup and the pleasant surprise of the FantasticaMania roster. Digressions include an apology to a Mr. Ultimo Guerrero, CMLL’s problem keeping it’s top stars, multiyear deals from a group who can’t put lineups together week to week, the best ways to use John Cena on Guerra de Titanes, fretting about the long term future of Magno, our entries into the “when will Averno show up in Arena Mexico” betting pool, at least one story I’m not sure if I was supposed to tell, I brag about not telling stories that people are expecting me to tell, things I don’t currently subscribe to but probably will again, things I subscribe to that I’m thinking maybe I shouldn’t be, and the AAA version of Tom Magee story.

I try not to spoil Lucha Underground and mostly don’t (it’s only about who wasn’t there and a wacky theory, you’re safe.) We both try to wrap up the show at least once and then just keep going on for longer. It’s more audible, so you should try to listen.

Como Estaz 3×6: fear of a red jacket

still from
still from

There’s so much going in Mexico that me and RobViper had to fly all the way back to the Reforma Holiday Inn Express to record a podcast. Topics include Alberto el Patron, what to do with the AAA Mega championship, Elite Lucha Libre, Caristico, and FantasticaMania. Topics almost do not include Lucha Underground since we both forgot to talk about it until about the end. It’s about 70 minutes of a sometimes meandering conversation for you to enjoy.

Como Estaz 3×4: ChilangaMask, Lucha Libre Boom, IWRG

photo by Black Terry Jr.

We’re back one last time (probably) talking all the matches from Saturday’s Lucha Libre Boom, and Sunday at both ChilangaMask and IWRG. We’re headed to Arena Puebla tomorrow, but expecting to return very late and so probably no podcast before I leave on Tuesday afternoon. Show runs 83 minutes (and no open this time.)

I think I’m sick, but the way you’re supposed to get sick in Mexico City, so I apologize for my voice (even more than usual) all the way thru. Attempt to keep count of how many times I tried to leave quietly during the podcast if you’re bored.

Right click to download – link works this time.

No news post tonight; I’ll try to do something in the morning.

Como Estaz 3×2 (09/16 CaraLucha)

Rob and I return to the scratchy podcast format to discuss the Cara Lucha show from 09/16. Also, we throw in thoughts on the Anniversary show and Heroes Inmortales. Plus the most painfully meta opening you’ve ever heard and I try to figure out what Nelly is doing Friday night. Show runs 94 minutes.

Warning: Rob horrifies me by blurting out the secret identity of one of the IWRG Tortuga Ninjas. Small children and those with child may want to exercise caution on listening.

We’ll be back Saturday morning? Probably?
