CMLL Puebla: 2015-11-09 

this one takes some timing

Recapped: 11/09/2015

What happened:  Peste Negra beat Sky Team rather simply in the main event to set up the expected trios title match next week. The semimain ended with the Ingobernables betraying Atlantis, leading to Atlantis versus Ultimo Guerrero challenges, leading to a trios rematch somehow. No angle happened in the tercera, which somehow still sets up Angel de Oro versus Hechicero next week.

What was good: Nothing really what that special. The opener and the tercera had their moments.

Where can I watch it:  It’s on CMLL’s YouTube channel, though there’s a problem with the video. (more…)

CMLL on CadenaTres: 2015-10-10

one of those days

Recapped: 10/31/2015

What happened: Dragon Lee got the decision over Mephisto in the main event trios, setting up a title match next week. Roberto was wearing a Grupo Imagen (parent company of C3), which might have been foreshadowing and might have just been what was clean that day.

What was good: None of the matches, really.

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

Zeuxis tries to put her boots thru Syuri

Recapped: 11/06/2015

What happened: The main event ended with Rush and Sombra fouling each other and agreeing on a singles match next week. Despite all of that, they insist they are still good friends. Thunder and Ultimo Guerrero continue to feud. The Panther & Super Comando do as well, though this week it was Puma who unmasked Fuego.

What was good:  The opener minis match was very good and the second match had a lot of fun guys. The main event continued the big story and had some really big spots in it.

Where can I watch it:  It aired live on ClaroSports (and wasn’t limited to Mexico this week.) It’ll be up on my YouTube channel eventually. (more…)

Shockercito & Demus magic

Recapped: 10/31/2015

What happened: Mistico I returned. That was a thing!

Atlantis advanced to the final of the CMLL Universal tournament. Heddi Karaoui debuted with a win. Shockercito beat Demus before their hair match next week.

Everyone attacked Mistico all night, including his Sky Team partners destroying his mask multiple times. This was then never mentioned again.

Also, between his three tournament matches, Mephisto wrestled for 18:33 on this show.

What was good: Not Mephisto wrestling for 18:33. Tournament lucha was no good (and so I gave up writing notes on it), but the show prior to it had good action. I really liked the minis opener.

Where can I watch it: It’s on my YouTube channel, in both live and TV versions, and there’s fancams linked as well. (more…)

teamwork!

Recapped: 10/29/2015

What happened: Mephisto fouled Maximo in the main event, but that wouldn’t go anywhere. Really, nothing important happened.

What was good: I liked the second and fourth trios matches the best. This was a more fun Tuesday show than normal because of a very enthusiastic crowd.

Where can I watch it: It’s on my channel, but the volume is very loud. Sorry. (more…)

that’s a lot of flower petals

Recapped: 10/24/2015

What happened: Konnan passed leadership of La Sociedad to Fantasma. Cage attacked Drago (and other people) for no real reason, was attacked by Drago to cost him the main event. Lady Shani debuted and got off to an 0-1 start.

What was good: The Machine Rocker trios is great! The rest is stuff you’re not going to think about twice.

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

2015 watch later catch up, part 1 of ∞

triple team brainbuster of a sort

The annual attempt to catch up is on! This year, I’m going to try to actually post these instead of letting them die on my hard drive. The idea is to start doing these now so I’m not stuck hurriedly watching 9 hours of lucha day in January and to space out some of the TV recaps.

Matches are generally taken from Black Terry Jr.’s offerings or from the TV shows I don’t normally recap. (That means you might want to yell at me to watch handheld matches which aren’t in those two groups.)

The what happened/what was good bit doesn’t quite work for this format. Let’s start by just listing the matches I’ve watched and figure out how to make it better along the way.

Matches recapped in this post

  • Donatelo, Leonardo, Miguel Angel, Rafael vs Leo (IWRG), Mike, Rafy, Teelo
  • La Sombra, Rush, Último Guerrero vs Eterno, Trauma I, Trauma II
  • Jimmy, Kevin, Tony vs Arez, Belial, Impulso
  • Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Black Terry, Rey Hechicero, Aero Boy
  • ACH vs Extreme Tiger
  • Leo, Mike, Rafy, Teelo vs Liderk, Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Rayan

this show in a GIF

Recapped: 10/24/2015

What happened: Nothing!

What was good:  Leaving Mexico. I enjoyed hanging out with everyone, but now that I know that I would’ve seen this show live had I stayed one more day, I’m glad I left. The main event was fine. 

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

CMLL Puebla: 2015-11-02 

no wire trick

Recapped: 11/02/2015

What happened: Thunder defeated Euforia. Peste Negra defeated the Sky Team, which might be setting up a trios title match.

What was good: Nothing extrordinary, but the first half of the card had some good moments. The tercera was a good midcard match, the women’s match was better than usual and the opener had some moments.

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

Gran Apache is a crazy grandfather

Recapped: 10/03/2015

What happenedLa Hiedra pinned Faby Apache, and decided this earned her a title shot. Taya disagreed. Pentagon beat Jack in some revenge for last week’s outcome. Mesias says he’s targeting Fenix, thought didn’t really do much of it in the main event.

What was good: The bonus tag match from UTDN and the main event tag were fun. I liked this show better than the Cancun one, though I may be on an island on that.

Where can I watch it: It’s on my channel and AAA’s channel with an extra match. (more…)
