It’s not listed on the chart, but the ROH PPV (available on FiteTV) is also Friday night, starting a half hour before the CMLL show for $35. The show will include Dragon Lee vs Kamaitachi, a match up I absolutely love. However, my concern is ROH does not share that same love. That preview on FiteTV hypes the match a lot, because it’s the filler text they used before the full card was announced, but ROH has done nothing to get unfamiliar fans excited for the show. (They’ve put out a press release and a couple Tweets, basically.) I’m sure there will be other matches that’ll be good, but it’s hard for me to invest $35 on a show if I’m concerned the match I want to see is going to be short changed, and ROH has passively indicated the match is not as important to them as it is to me. (Plus, there’s a CMLL Friday show to see too.) I know I could probably just find a stream somewhere, but what I think I’m going to do is just not get the show live, and pay for a replay if it sounds like it’s worth my time. You may be more invested than me in ROH – or more excited in general! – so I wanted to make sure you knew it was out there.
That CMLL Claro show has Cavernario/Volador, so they may very well have the best match of the night anyway. Semimian should be good with or without Caristico, but his participation will be the story. I’m back home, so I should be able to record it.
AAA will have the full Hard Rock show this week – I checked, it’s a one taping show.. There is no iPPV for Heroes Inmortales this weekend.
IWRG should be back in full this week, with an episode this weekend (reacp of the latest FILL show) and one Monday night (Trauma/Canis.)
There’s no sign of Lucha Libre Retro, though the Facebook site still seems active.
The preview for Lucha Underground gives away one match as a Dial of Doom (and the title certainly hints at Matanza’s opponent.) I believe we’re getting an Ivelisse, and another Texano/Cage match would fit seeing as they need four more of them.
