Also: The FULL/Tineiblas show starts this weekend. It’s even on TV Mexiquense’s schedule for Sunday at noon, like a proper show, and they have a webfeed. It’s only a half hour and I have no idea what’s going to actually air or if you’d like to watch it.

Noches de Coliseo appears to be airing on the Multimedios US on Monday morning sometime after 3AM. Convenient for everyone.

The women’s title match airing on Fox seems like the lock of locks.

The four matches listed for AAA are the ones left over from SLP; it’s possible the minis opener doesn’t air.

Lucha Underground has only two matches listed. There’s reasons. That tag tournament goes for a while.

Escorpion & Valiente didn’t air in Mexico, may get pulled for the women’s match again.

The rest of last week’s IWRG did turn up and will go up next week.

AAA is a double blind guess. Not sure if they’re moving onto SLP, no idea what they’re airing in SLP. Check AAA’s site on Friday.

I’m not sure Lucha Azteca is actually on this week. It’s not listed in the programming guide I use to record, and it’s not on the place I check online. (Which may just have the same listings.) There’s no obvious sporting event or other special to displacement. It’s listed on the schedule for next week, but sometimes those listings aren’t right a week ahead of time. I’m setting up to record a block of time just to see if it pops up.

IWRG did slip in airing Rey de Reyes during the day this week, but it was at a time where the feed I use is down. Hoping it turns up again.

I do have someone trying to record ClaroSports and I am trying to record it off a feed on the internet, but it’s possible neither thing works out and we don’t get Dragon Lee/Virus. Blame CMLL. (If you can record ClaroSports and send it to me to share with everyone, that’d be appreciated too.)

The middle match on Lucha Underground is a preview of the next week’s three way match. There’s also a Pentagon Jr. segment on the show. Dario will also explain the Unique Opportunity that’ll be given to the winner of the Aerostar/Drago sequence. Fire in the Cosmos is quite the episode title.

Daylight Savings Time ends in Mexico on Saturday night/Sunday morning. Hooray.

No real clue what’s actually going to air this weekend on AAA TV. It should be Rey de Reyes, but it won’t be clear what airs each week (and if they’re airing everything) until they put up the preview on Friday. Fantasma/Fenix would seem to need to air before the main event, and makes sense as airing a separate week, but they ignored all that in how they aired Guerra de Titanes. There’s at least a thought of not airing Perro Aguayo Jr.’s last AAA match, but if they were fine with showing Perro for 90 minutes last weeks, there’s no reason not to show the one more match they have to air. The awkwardness is more building up a match that won’t happen, but that’s not the first or last time a wrestling promotion will do that.

Dos Leyendas also airs this week in the US. I received the Fox Sports versions of those matches today (thanks!), which should be slightly bit longer than what airs on Azteca. I’ll have both versions up on Tuesday.

52MX is La Gitana’s TV debut. Probably some weird names in Rey del Ring. Weird how it works out to have CMLL, AAA and IWRG big shows airing on the same day.

It’s pretty hard to spoiler proof a show named “Mask vs Mask.” Tried anyway. My hunch is this upcoming week’s Lucha Underground show is going to generate some hot takes.

Normally, this would be the first week of Rey de Reyes. (They aired the missing segunda match from DF on UTDN; the only match not to air is the one where Mesias turned, which is very strange.) AAA’s already said this show will be dedicated to Perro Aguayo Jr., which may mean the whole show on him. AAA will have more info on their website tomorrow.

CMLL Fox Sports 2 is listed as one hour, so lots of editing will need to be done if they plan on airing three matches. Maybe even with two. There’s also a small chance something strange happens and expected matches don’t air because of the Cinepolis deal.

Leyendas Inmoratles may have the remaining matches of the 02/15 show, or maybe they’ll skip Hijo del Canek vs Mr. Jack completely.

Noches de Coliseo may be airing, but it may be airing later on Sunday night/Monday morning than I’ve been checking. Will keep trying.

(as a webpage)

  • Everyone who was at that Lucha Underground taping raved about the casket match as if it was a match of the year. Not simply a Lucha Underground match of the year, but worldwide. The reactions for the Lucha Underground matches lean positive, but this was mentioned as being a notch above everything else that’s been raved about.
  • The 5:15 start time appears to be the AAA start time going forward. It’s been that way for a few weeks now. It’s a lead to LigaMX coverage, so it seems to be an upgrade in exposure and means they’re unlikely to be starting late (as they had been on the old spot.) It would be even better if Televisa would just give them that extra 15 minutes so they could start on the hour.
  • AAA’s also the second week of a two week taping, so those are locked in as the matches.
  • Best bet is Angel de Oro vs Hechicero is CMLL’s free lightning match of the week, but no idea. That’s 2 Angel de Oro singles matches in a week.
  • IWRG Wedneday shows haven’t been airing of late.
  • Leyendas Inmortales should be on the remainder of the 02/02 show, w/Casandra & Rossy Moreno vs Miss Janeth & Tania and Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr., Hijo del Fishman, Mr. Jack vs Canek Jr., Hijo del Solar, Solar I. They’ve listed way too many shows as TV tapings to actually air them all, so they could skip around at any point.
  • Lucha Azteca is listed at 4pm today. Tomorrow, who knows.

Daylight Savings Time starts Sunday in the US, but not in Mexico for another month. If you’re in the US, this means everything airing (or happening) in Mexico starts 1 hour later. This doesn’t quite matter this week as much with CMLL on Terra not airing anymore: IWRG’s affected but it’s not like that’s on a discernible schedule. Leyendas Inmortales would be affected but there are other things going on there.

box. It’s after the jump too.

I’m not sure what’s going on with the Sunday shows. Claro Sports would normally air last Sunday’s show and there were definitely cameras taping the show last week, but who knows if CMLL will actually air it. There’s been no advertisement on Terra for the usual CMLL show to come back, and it did not air the week before All Elite. Maybe it’ll air, maybe it won’t.

Thinking of changing this format: why I am writing what’s already on this same page?

== AAA ==

Second show in Toluca. Remaining matches are the minis, a mixed trios, and Fenix/Myzteziz/Psycho vs Perro/Fantamsa/Pentagon

== Lucha Underground ==

An Eye for An Eye

Cueto announces a Trios Tag Team match; Big Ryck seeks revenge; Chavo and Mil Muertes finally face off.

Texano gets a bigger introduction. Chavo might be getting a farewell. Ivelisse takes matters into her own hands.

== CMLL ==

FOX2: Negro Casas & Shocker vs La Mascara & Sombra headline.

Azteca: A two match show, with Maximo vs Terrible for the belt.

52MX: Sky Team vs Euforia/Felino/UG.

Claro: The big matches from All Elite – or maybe something completely different. They are still recording Puebla…

C3: Angel de Oro, Dragon Rojo, Voaldor vs Hechicero, Polvora nad Ultimo Guerrero

Terra Sunday: If it airs, Marco, Maximo & VOlador vs Cavernario, Euforia, Thunder is the main event, and Guerrero Maya has the first of two lightning matches.

== IWRG ==

IWRG (LAS/AYM): The El Protector tournament.
