CMLL Puebla: 2015-11-30 

how to deal with a troll

Recapped: 11/30/2015

What happened: Marco challenged Shocker to a match next week after a foul, one of three screwjobs in a row (and a fourth where a team broke up.) Ultimo Guerrero fouled Atlantis in the main event, and it was unclear if was meant to go anywhere. King Jaguar stole pins from his rudo teammates, who attacked him for it after the match.

Magia Blanca debuted. He’s Magnifico I, still in a giant M mask.

What was good:  Oh no. Nada. It was not good.

Where can I watch it:  It’s on CMLL’s YouTube channel (more…)

CMLL on CadenaTres: 2015-10-24

Recapped: 11/19/2015

What happened: Zeuxis defeated Princesa Sugehit to keep the national women’s championship. Okumura worked as a fill in tecnico without incident. Nothing else in the matches.

This is the final CMLL on CadenaTres broadcast. The station itself was shut down a couple days after this aired, in a bit of a surprise. There’s no farewell or hint this is the final show and it’s not clear if they knew it would be when the show was recorded. The parent company will be launching a replacement channel in quarter 1 of 2016, but it’s unknown if CMLL will be part of it. The Tuesday tapings have moved to Claro Sports (TV) and LATV and cut to one hour.

Also, in the past and future weirdly crossing paths, the unaired first match and the segunda (aired as the first match here) were broadcast by CMLL as a test for their iPPV capabilities. I completely forgot I recorded both of those until Soberano did the barricade splash. I may watch the opener next time if I go thru the lightning matches again.

What was good: I liked the women’s title match, though I don’t feel strongly about which category to place it in. The second match was good too, but this went out with a bunch of forgettable matches as usual.

Where can I watch it: It’s on my YouTube channel, and the Disturbio match is on Princesa Dorada’s channel like usual. (more…)

CMLL on 2015-11-27 

Kamaitachi wins!

Recapped: 11/27/2015

What happened: a Negro Casas fouled Super Parka in the main event, which led to singles match challenges. In more promising news, Kamaitachi defeated Dragon Lee to set up a title match next week. Super Comando also lost by DQ to The Panther. Panther wants a mask match, Comando says Panther needs to proof himself.

What was good:  a Dragon Lee & Kamaitachi was great, at always. Second match and fifth match were good.

Where can I watch it:  The main matches will air on Azteca in two or three weeks. It’ll be up on my YouTube channel on Tuesday.

AAA on UTDN: 2015-10-24

Aerostar thought his dives weren’t tricky enough so

Recapped: 11/21/2015

What happened: Pentagon attacked Jack and challenged for a title rematch. Australian Suicide attacked Daga, in retaliation for an attack prior to the show.

This is the start of a lot of backstage turmoil spilling out into world, though none of it is directly referenced on screen. Elsewhere, Mistico I returned to Arena Mexico the same night, and this is the first show with him sort of not around. This also turns out to be Alberto’s last night, as he returns to WWE before his next scheduled TV appearance. Mundo’s interview –  naming Rey and the title but not naming Alberto – is the only sign that something’s changed. (It looks like something taped at a later show and added back into this one, and it also suggests the one on one match was a possible plan for a while, even though a tournament would be brought up elsewhere.) 

Argos is also making his last appearance, seemingly quitting AAA twice in route to ending up in Elite with his brother. (Argenis would end up staying.) This also might be the end of Maravilla’s two match run; she turned up in DTU wrestling Marcela soon after and hasn’t been on AAA shows since.

What was good: The entire show was generally an easy watch, with the second, third and fifth matches being the best

Where can I watch it: It’s on my YouTube channel, and it’s also now AAA’s YouTube channel. 

Previously: Taya kept her women’s title, Jack & Angelico got the tag titles back, Fenix and Mesias faced off, Taurus won Copa Antonio Pena, Garza debuted, and Alberto kept his title. (more…)

CMLL Puebla: 2015-11-23

needs a freeze frame and credits

Recapped: 11/23/2015

What happened: a Atlantis defeated Mascara to keep the Mexican Light Heavyweight championship. Shocker beat Maximo via foul, which may be setting up a heavyweight title match. Lestat won a DF versus Puebla cibernetico.

What was good: Maybe just the cibernetico, and it wasn’t a blow away match. Not a good show.

Where can I watch it: It’s on CMLL’s YouTube channel. (more…)

CMLL on 2015-11-20 


Recapped: 11/21/2015

What happened: Not much! Puma and The Panther feuded in their match, Kamiatachi and Dragon Lee continued the feud in their match, and everyone seemed to be feuding in the segunda, but this was a pretty quiet show.

What was good: A couple matches were good, but nothing must see.

Where can I watch it: It’ll be up my YouTube channel on Tuesday.

Hijos del Infierno find an opponent they can defeat

Recapped: 10/23/2015

What happened: Sombra defeated Volador in straight falls (with a little help) to set up a title match next week. The Panther & Super Comando started feuding, and Thunder & Ultimo Guerrero continued feuding. Hechicero defeated Heddi Karaoui in a singles match which had been build for a few weeks (and, weeks later, Karoui hasn’t returned to the main CMLL shows.)

What was good: The main event felt like a big match, and the fourth match had the usual Dragon Lee/Kamaitachi show.

Where can I watch it: The show is on my YouTube channel, though some matches are only available with the Azteca edits. (more…)

javelin tope

Recapped: 11/10/2015

What happened: Mephisto beat Dragon Lee in the main event, but cheated to do it. Princesa Sugehit defeated Zeuxis in a trios match to set up a title match next week.

What was good:  The opener, the tercera and the main event were good, with Dragon Lee/Mephisto beating the best. However…

Where can I watch it: a it’s on my YouTube channel, but the videos are awful. This was off the Ciudad Juarez feed, the first time I had used it in months, and the files are just horrible. I feel bad I couldn’t find a better way to grab these, but the audio is out of sync and the video goes in and out. (My best solution to watch it was in 2x fast forward, which smoothed out the video and eliminated the audio.) Dragon Lee put out his usual big performance, but you don’t want to deal with this video.

CMLL Puebla: 2015-11-16

Volador & Mistico

Recapped: 11/15-16/2016

What happened: The Sky Team kept the trios titles over the Peste Negra. La Mascara beat Atlantis in straight falls to set up a title match next week.

What was good: The title match was good, but really not as good as it should’ve been. The third and fourth matches were also good, but there’s nothing you had to see. Better show than usual overall

Where can I watch it: It’s on CMLL”s YouTube channel. (more…)
