CMLL Puebla: 2015-09-21 

Zaeta Roja double springboard armdrag

Recapped: 10/22/2015

What happened: Molotov suddenly decided he hated Lestat and needed to be a rudo. Not sure how that’s going to turn out for him. A few days after Atlantis beat La Sombra in one of the biggest matches of his career, Atlantis also beat Rey Escorpion .

What was good: The Dragon Lee version of the Sly team versus the Hijos was good. I liked what we saw of this show generally live, but it didn’t come across as well on TV, or I’m just a horribly mean grader. Could be both!

Where can I watch it: It’s on CMLL’s YouTube channel. There’s lot of live clips on RobViper’s YouTube. (more…)

AAA on Televisa: 2015-09-19 

Fexnix Brillo Tornillo

Recapped: 10/03/2015

What happened: Jack beat Joe Lider and challenged for the tag titles. Mesias used a ref distraction to beat Parka. 

What was good: nothing much. This felt like a televised house show with people taking it easy.

Where can I watch it: It’s on AAA’s channel and mine. I’m trying to stick with AAA’s version because it seems like they have a few vignettes which aren’t being shown on the national version. There were very brief segments in between each match on the TripleMania show, and this one had a skit that wasn’t on the Televisa version


CMLL Puebla: 2015-10-26 

CMLL referee mishap of the night

Recapped: 10/26/2015

What happened: Sombra beat Shocker by using the ropes. Euforia challenged Thunder to a match next week.

What was good: Nothing. This was a very skippable show. Shocker/Sombra may appeal to some, but nothing was outstanding on this show.

Where can I watch it: It’s on CMLL’s YouTube channel.


CMLL Anniversary Show: 2015-09-18


Recapped: 10/14/2015

What happened: Atlantis unmasked Sombra. Dark Angel wrestled her last match in CMLL. Volador and Rush made hair match challenges, and Rush indicated he’d like to take on Atlantis next.

What was good: The mask match! The opening two trios matches were rather good. I liked the show more live than I did watching it out of context a month later, so maybe don’t do that.

Where can I watch it: Copies of the show are all over YouTube. The last two matches are on Lucha Azteca (though maybe edited.) (more…)

CMLL Puebla: 2015-09-14

classic Dark Angel

Recapped: 10/16/2015

What happened: Rey Escorpion cheated Atlantis to set up a title match next week. Dark Angel won her final match in Arena Puebla.

What was good: The Dark Angel match, maybe? The minis match had moments.

Where can I watch it: it’s on CMLL’s channel, and edited versions of the matches aired on 52MX already. (more…)

CMLL on CadenaTres: 2015-09-12

Astral gets blasted by a dropkick

Recapped: 10/06/2012

What happened: Astral kept the CMLL minis title. Triton beat Cavernario and asked for a title shot. Cavernario accepted it, but only while taking Triton’s mask.

What was good: I really enjoyed the minis match, and liked the third match.

Where can I watch it: I have it on YouTube. (I don’t have a copy of the main event.)


AAA on Televisa: 2015-09-12

Machine lariat!

Recapped: 09/13/2015

What happened: Daga & Steve Pain cost Angelico & Jack a win, but they sort of also cost Lider & Pentagon the win and there’s some tension inside Perros del Mal. Myzteziz and Rey Mysterio started feuding in main events and I’m sure that’ll end up well. There’s a mystery person stalking La Secta, an angle I had completely forgotten existed when I finally put up this recap.

What was good: Everything! The opener was great (and a surprising Australian Suicide focused match), and the three way tag and the main event were good as well.

Where can I watch it: It’s up on AAA’s YouTube channel.


CMLL Puebla: 2015-10-19 

Thunder is back!

Recapped: 10/19/2015

What happened: The Guerreros and Revolucinarios had a match, which will set up the same match next week. Shocker & Sombra had a trios match, which will set up a singles match next week. Centella Roja debuted. None of this was good.

What was good: None of this was good, are you paying attention? I liked the opener but others found it sloppy. The rest of the show was easy skippable

Where can I watch it? It’s on CMLL’s YouTube.


CMLL Titanes del Ring: 2015-09-05 

the clothesline really puts it over the top

Recapped: 09/07/2015

What happened that mattered? Dragon Lee and Kamatiachi added another outstanding match to their feud of the year. There was also had a trios match.

What was good? Dragon Lee & Kamatiachi were out of this world.

How can I watch? It’s on my channel.


CMLL on 2015-10-16

Kamataichi got nailed

Recapped: 10/16/2015

What happened: Atlantis won this year’s Universal tournament, although it was mostly because Ultimo Guerrero gave up the match to get punched by Thunder. (Fans booed Atlantis winning in this manner.) Shockercito took Demus’ hair, though it was partially because Demus landed his finishing move and wandered around the ring for 37 seconds before trying to cover. The Ingobernables sent Volador out on a stretcher. Boby Zavala is now Boby Z, and no one’s quite sure why.

What was good: The hair match was really good for the time it got. The trios which followed were pretty good. The main event was not as interesting as the other matches.

How can you watch? I’ll have it up on YouTube in the next few days, though the opener is in poor quality. Some of the matches from this show will air on Lucha Azteca on 10/31.
