I just posted this in the MOTYC thread, but here's a pretty fun CMLL match from July: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d50FXqyrF0s.

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.

I know everyone's talking about TripleMania, but I just watched what's apparently the one kind of good match from last Friday night's CMLL show. It's Dragon Lee vs. Gran Guerrero in a lightning match, which should be good to great, but the ref has one of the all-time great screw-ups on the finish, even by lucha ref standards.

Cubs fan was really high on the AAA show, giving every match at least a "Good" rating, with Fenix-Laredo Kid-Puma King-Taurus getting a "Great." I've yet to watch the show but am looking forward to it as part of my G1 cleanse.

Not sure where to put this, but here's a Mexican indie death match involving a semi, a dog, and a beer bottle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HJzVRcoCT4

This really undersells the number of semis and beer bottles IMO

I only watched half of it; I really don't enjoy this kind of match and was thinking of listing it as a WMOTYC.

This is from Cubs Fan's latest post, about Friday night CMLL's Universal de Amazonas final:

"Dalys vs Metalica was underwhelming, both in the match and the presentation. Metalica left on a stretcher, either getting hurt or getting gassed after a botched dive. Commentary a bit buried her for being an easy opponent."

Would Caristico jumping ship be the tipping point it would've been before he went to WWE?

Unlikely. He's over, but he's not being pushed as the focus of CMLL or is obviously the most obvious person on the card like Rush was. It is possible he'd be better used by AAA and could get back to pre-WWE levels of popularity, but it's not a guarantee.

So CMLL originally planned to have their aniversário main event built around a Ciber-UG feud and now Ciber and the rest of Klan Kaoz are gone. WTF?

My brain is trying to figure out which promotional split this is alluding to. I mean, I'm guessing CMLL/AAA but there's so many that I'm honestly not sure. The later splits from AAA usually didn't involve execs, and the earlier unrests usually didn't involve full splits.

I assume it's just a WWE people leaving thing.

I don't know if RoH was pressured to not book Rush, but CMLL did try to get New Japan to not use Dragon Lee after he was fired, and that lasted maybe six months before they were like 'nah, he's getting signed full time.'
