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.

box. It’s after the jump too.

== AAA ==

First of two shows in Toluca. They’ll probably have a preview Friday, but today is still Thurday. Fenix, Myzteziz, Psycho Clown vs Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Hijo del Fatnasma, Pentagon Jr. was the main event on the taping and might be the main event of the first show.

== Lucha Underground ==

Open Mic Night

Tensions rise when a new luchador is welcomed into Cueto’s temple; the newcomer promises that he will reign supreme.

TV listings have different titles than the El Rey site. Dunno. Fenix/Argenis, Son of Havoc/Johnny Mundo and Ricky Mendall/Pentagon Jr. were taped for this show, but there’s one more guy showing up at the end. You already know who he is.

== CMLL ==

FOX2: Maximo vs Terrible! Mistico, Valiente, and Volador Jr., a trio in search of a name, versus the Guerreros.

Azteca: Maximo, Mistico, Volador Jr. vs Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Ultimo Guerrero & Valiente/Kamatachi

52MX: Euforia, Felino, UG vs Mistico, Valiente, Volador Jr. as the Felino/Valiente feud begins. Cavernario/Terrible/Aguila vs Delta/Maya/Cometa is Rey Cometa’s last match for now.

Claro: The Sunday show that didn’t air – except Hechicero/Stuka is on the YouTube channel and that’s probably the one you wanted to see anyway.

C3: Dragon Rojo vs Niebla Roja + Cavernaro/GG/Terrible vs Delta/Maya/Mascara. Maybe five matches, maybe not.

Terra Sunday: I don’t think it’s airing. I know I won’t be recording this.

== IWRG ==

IWRG (LAS/AYM): Ninja Turtles vs Terry/Cerebro/Cerbero/Pantera. The missing matches from Sunday did eventually turn up in reruns. That Tuesday overnight airing just happens to be the first one, but they’ve been rerunning the show on AYM about a half dozen times during the week.

No previews in guides anymore. Dunno. Cage/Mundo is the main event.

C3: Ephesto, Mephisto, Niebla Roja vs Draogn Rojo JR., Titan and Super Porky – one of three different Super Porky matches which will air this week.
