Important Notes

  • The Alas de Oro is a repeat from the PPV airing, which is going to keep happening unless I just remove the TV shows which are TripleMania repeats. FWIW, the rating was based on the PPV match, which was a few minutes longer than the TV version. (I didn’t compare, but it was more than just the pause for Fenix’s injury.) You may find it hard to believe that match could’ve possibly kept going even longer if you saw that on TV, but it did.
  • There’s also no AAA TV recap for the same repeat reason.
  • Not a single CMLL match I watched from this week scored a rating over “OK”. I never was able to watch the Women’s cibernetico; my impression is that might have been rated ‘good’. Careful readers may note I’m not bothering to catch most any En Busca de un Idolo match I haven’t seen live.
  • These lists are going to be depressing once En Busca de un Idolo disappears.

great match roundup for week of 2015-05-30

I feel like I’m actually catching up. Sooner or later. Any feedback to the changes would be nice.

(True story: I have like 50 indy matches from 2014 I wrote reviews but never posted. Still. Don’t have time to make the GIFS. It may just get dumped on y’all one day.)

I was too busy trying to record the Terra feed to actually watch the first two matches, but I rated them when they air on Cadena3. Matches are going to show up twice when they air twice like that.

I think I’m going to probably skip doing recaps of the AAA TV shows when they already air on PPV, figuring I’ve already wrote enough about the show when it aired live and there’s no a lot more add 2-3 weeks later (and posted 4-6 weeks later.) There’s usually only a minute or two of new material. Hopefully no one desperately needs me to write down match times.
