lucha TV preview for weekend of May 10th, 2019

Space’s site is down, so I don’t know what is actually going to air on AAA on YouTube this week. The YouTube still (of course) is of the women’s match so that’s one.

Do you want to watch another incredible pairs tournament? Something is wrong with you. But also watch Puebla.

Guerrero Maya vs Templario is a new match-up on Tuesday. Must be an accident.

Another two AAA taping weekend, with shows Friday & Sunday. These don’t look quite as strong as last weekend’s, but they also pretty much could change five times.

Marca has the big The Crash vs CMLL match, as well at lot of more ordinary matches.

Puebla gets a singles match. So does Guadalajara, if I can manage to record it.

Welcome to lots and lots of AAA. Friday/Sunday this week. Friday/Sunday next week, a week off, and then Saturday/Sunday. There will be changes: Black Danger is gone from AAA. Sammy Guevera is currently in Pakistan and will not be on these shows. And probably other miscellaneous stuff (is Jack Evans still around? Maybe Suicide will have to wrestle himself.) Both cards have lots of promising matches; the AAA Sunday main event might be the best AAA main event on a normal TV taping in a long time.

I was wrong on Twitter; Space says the Young Bucks/Lucha Brothers match will air on AAA YouTube this week.

Crowd should stay up for CMLL this week, though they’ll be seeing the usual people on tope: Ultimo Guerrero on Friday and Tuesday, Caristico on Monday and Tuesday.

CMLL Marca is going to be very long to fit in 12 matches. Or there are going to be a lot of short matches.

Maybe Caristico & Mistico can have a discussion about giving up the Mistico gimmick when they team on CMLL Puebla.

Cross your fingers that I remember to tape Guadalajara.

CMLL Friday will be on Marca and Facebook and maybe YouTube if I remember it. You will be OK skipping this one.

Really, you’ll be okay skipping this AAA on Twitch stream too – it seems mostly notable because it’s the only one for weeks. AAA is listed as starting a half hour after CMLL starts, though it’ll usually be a little later than that. You can figure out the start time where you’re at here. The card actually seems fine but with gimmicks that only are for the Tijuana crowd and not so essential for everyone else. The opener could be really good depending on who actually ends up in it.

I’m doing this early so I have no real idea what will be on CMLL Puebla or Tuesday beside the title match. No one will be paying attention to AAA TV releases this weekend but that title match was fun.

People will want to watch Naito on CMLL Marca tomorrow and be very confused about it starting so late. Maybe they can be tricked into watching Cavernario beforehand.

AAA YouTube has a taping from six weeks ago. And this is the first part. It is a good part.

I’m probably not getting around to this next week.

Marca said CMLL is back on their stream this week, though I didn’t see a link up yet on Facebook when I checked Thursday afternoon. Cavernario & Forastero should be fun. The main event should be good too.

AAA’s YouTube show this week just happens to be airing Hijo del Fantasma’s last TV match in the promotion. It is probably a coincidence; this would’ve aired on Space a couple of weeks ago and produced before that. The Vikingo match is definitely worth a look.

On TV sets, CMLL seems to have settled at 3:30 pm on Saturdays now. AAA on Azteca should be on the Morelia taping this week.

I assume CMLL is airing on Marca at this point. This is a Marca level show. The trios title match should be good. The main event should have some drama. It is a totally cynical card.

AAA is on Twitch for Rey de Reyes, though it is a show probably going late into the night. If the Young Bucks show up, they might not be on screen until Sunday Eastern US time. I mean I guess NJPW fans are used to that? The show looks good with or without AEW involvement.

If you’re not watching everything live or paying for Twitch, you should really check out the AAA YouTube the next two weeks. The Tepic taping looks like it’s airing complete and it was the best even they’ve had this year so far.

lucha TV preview for weekend of March 1st, 2019 – daylight savings starts

full size

Daylight Savings time begins in the US & Canada this weekend. It does not start in Mexico until April 7th. That means, if you change your clock on Sunday, all streams from Mexico will start one hour later. Puebla starts at 10 pm CDT, Tuesdays start at 8:30 pm and Fridays (starting with H2L) start at 9:30 pm. AAA still starts whenever they feel like it.

No AAA TV taping this week. They’re airing some matches from Mazatlan this week on YouTube, which seems to include the four-way title match at the last.
