First -5* match since Bushwackers/Sheik/Volkoff!

Dave mentioned this in the Observer and it just leaves me wondering: Isn't it a bit weird that CMLL's biggest show is just a month away and they barely even have a card put together?

Maybe that's just the way CMLL operates but it's still weird to me. Imagine if WrestleMania was in a month and WWE didn't even have a main event announced, or kept changing the date every other week.

What happened for that Villanos/Psycho Circus match to suck that hard, Los Psycho Circus is good

The Villanos are old as gently caress and had no business being in a ring in 2015. The Shield couldn't get a passable match out of those guys.

Josh Mathews is poo poo, Matt Striker is poo poo. Why can't AAA get any, you know, good announcers to call their PPVs?

Yeah, Hernandez went to TNA to shoot some angles, but I guess nobody told him he couldn't do that while still appearing on LU TV and LU"s lawyers were like "lol no."

What the hell happened to AAA? It felt like they had a lot of momentum in early 2015, with Mysterio in the fold and the LU guys catching on with American fans. Then TripleMania '15 was a disaster, Konnan got froze out of booking, a bunch of guys left and now they're firmly behind CMLL for the foreseeable future.

Is there any singular moment that led to this debacle, or just the culmination of small moments I mentioned above?

Sexy Star was half of the mixed tag champs around a year and a half ago.

She refused to drop the title, and she ended up retiring and starting a boxing career.

...

On the TV tapings last night, they had a 6 way to determine a new champion. The winner of this match was the newly returning Sexy Star, who still has managed to never get pinned in a singles match to lose a title.

How did Sexy Star end up being this generation's Kevin Nash

Man this loving sucks. I'm hardly an expert on Silver King's career, but he was always super fun to watch wherever I saw him pop up, was a highlight of the WCW cruiserweight era. and at only 51 years old he had plenty more to offer the business. He'll be missed.

If you wanted a promotion where Alberto Del Rio is treated like a superface in TYOOL 2019, then Nacion Lucha Libre is for you. The cubsfan write up sure made it sound like a thing.

lol you weren't kidding

quote:

Alberto’s match was not what would be considered a good match. It still was amusing to watch, a one-man vanity performance, like the lead face of an old territory. Alberto wrestled this like he turned difficulty all the way down in a video game, easily destroyed all the rudos and going thru near the entire match without selling a thing. It’s only the foul at the end, and that’s only there to set up that sequence, where anything the rudos do can possibly hurt superhero Alberto. The rudos never much get the heat, even with a sneak attack beforehand, barely being set up to get knocked down again. The rudos didn’t look so great even in that. MVP & Park had a woeful sequence. Fantasma doing sequences based off being much faster than the opposition came off as very believable. This was built to put over Alberto as Superman rather than build things up. I think the crowd was still more into LA Park despite it.

So how long is Kenny gonna hold the AAA belt without defending it, or AAA even remembering that he's the champ?

I'm setting the over/under at 250 days.
