That splat you hear on some of the landings? That's flesh on concrete. Lucha Libre is pretty much fight club with flips.


Also have that Cara Lucha vs DTU show ripped and split for a showing Thursday. 8pm EST sound good?

Looks like the full H2L card is out, although everything besides the three really cool matchups we've known about for a while seems like standard run of the mill stuff.

Sobrerano and Oro Jr. vs. Sansón and Cuatrero
Ángel De Oro, Titán,and Rey Cometa vs. Mephisto, Luciferno, and Ephesto
Mexico vs. Japan Atomicos:Místico, Dragon Lee, Máscara Dorada, and EL Valiente vs. Kamaitachi, Fujin, Raijin, and Okumura
Hair vs. Hair apuestas: Máximo Sexy vs. Rush
Atlantis, Súper Porky, and Marco Corleone vs. Cibernético, Mr. Niebla, and Último Guerrero
Hair vs. Hair apuestas:Volador Jr. vs. Negro Casas


Next week's Puebla card is also out. Fujin and Raijin make their CMLL debut in a trios match alongside Okumura vs. Blue Panther Jr, The Panther, and Stigma.

DISINGENUOUS GASLIGHTING PIECE OF SHIT CREEPER FANTASIST

Had no idea what there to post this in:

Via CubsFan on VOW Forum:

quote:

I partly wrote about it this morning but I might as well do it again - the AAA/LU luchador mentioned in the WON as hoping to head to NXT is most likely Hijo del Fantasma/Cuerno. He speaks much better English than Fenix/Pentagon/whoever else, he's taller and in great shape. He's got the connection with Sombra & Dark Angel from when they all were in CMLL. The only thing holding him back before was WWE only looking for one Mexican at a time and only looking for people who were giant stars (which he hasn't been), but times seem like they're changing. He would fit in and do well.

The thing holding Fantasma back now is whatever contract he's under - the story has always been that the AAA guys were asked/told to sign whatever was the original and harshest version of the Lucha Underground contract, which probably includes the dreaded seven season length. At the pace they're going, that would be over in 2021. Fantasma - or whoever it is - probably can't actually go anywhere and knows it, which means this is about sending a message as much as acting on something - Fantasma is part of Konnan's crew and is not on Rey de Reyes and would figure to be not too happy about the current state of AAA.

Yeah when I read that report that didn't name names, I was thinking it might be Fantasma/Cuerno. With Konnan getting ousted and the focus on "legends" there he's not in a great spot, and while he's been positioned as a threat in LU, he's never really had a title shot type run. And I remember reading an interview somewhere where he learned English in part because he always wanted to break out somewhere other than Mexico.

King Cuerno is probably my favorite LU guy and I'll be sorely disappointed to see him misused in WWE

How has he not been booked on the US Indy scene along with Pentagon Jr. and Fenix? Is it due to his mask being copyrighted by the Phantom comic?

Also, god drat ref shenanigans ruined the Pentagón Jr. vs Hijo del Fantasma, Fénix, Octagón Jr. match.

Gran Alternativa tournament (veteran + "rookie" tag teams) starts Tuesday. thecubsfan was kinda confused as to how Triton counts. Rocky Casas might be Heavy Metal II according to RobViper. Good to see Yohei included, surprised they didn't pairhim with Okumura.

Elite on Azteca possibly mean another talent raid too. Elite’s been using the TV chance as a carrot to get luchadors to jump, and some of those people were as skeptical as I’ve been about it actually happen. People may be more willing to take a jump now that this is a real thing. I haven’t heard anything about how the Elite shows have done this week, but this could be a pretty pivotal week for them if they can prove they can draw on the road too.

(As another ripple effect – whatever’s going on with Konnan, Elite getting Azteca means any other group is probably shut out.)

With AAA deciding it wants to be the Geriatric Wrestling Federation this is a great time for Elite to raid. I would think there would be a lot of young talented wrestlers that would be receptive to an offer.

Based on their short history I'm skeptical ELITE will be any less reliant on over the hill guys than AAA. They do use a lot of good CMLL and indie guys though so there's that.

If like me you usually skip it, it's worth noting that Puebla was quite good last night. They set up Cavernario/Dorada for the latter's title next week.
