CMLL Anniversary Show
CMLL 85th Anniversary show will be airing live on Honor Club at 9:30 Eastern time. The main event features Volador Jr, and Ring of Honor’s own Matt Taven vs Rush and Barbaro Cavernario in a hair match where the losing team will have their heads shaved. The remaining card looks like this,
Caristico, El Hijo del LA Park, and LA Park vs Diamante Azul, Pentagon Jr, and King Fenix.
Ultimo Guerrero, Gran Guerrero, and Euforia vs Ciber the Main Man, The Chris, and Scharly Rock Star for the CMLL Trios titles.
Atlantis, Mistico, and Soberano Jr vs El Cuatrero, Forastero, and Sanson
Angel de Oro, El Audaz, and Niebla Roja vs Negro Casas, El Felino, and Mephisto
La Jorachita, Mercela, and Princesa Sugehit vs Dalys, La Maligna, and Reyna Isis
That is the whole card. My predictions for the card look like this,
La Jorachita, Mercela, and Princesa Sugehit will defeat Dalys, La Maligna, and Reyna Isis
Negro Casas, El Felino, and Mephisto will defeat Angel de Oro, El Audaz, and Niebla Roja.
Atlantis, Mistico, and Soberano Jr will defeat El Cuatrero, Forastero, and Sanson.
Kaos Klan, Ciber the Main Man, The Chris, and Scharly Rock Star will defeat Los Guerreros, Ultimo Guerrero, Gran Guerrero, and Euforia.
Diamante Azul, Pentagon Jr, and King Fenix will defeat Caristico, El Hijo Del LA Park, and LA Park
Rush and Barbaro Cavernario will defeat Matt Taven and Volador Jr.
Now normally this would be a perfectly acceptable main event. Volador Jr never lost his hair and neither has Rush. Rush has the most valuable hair in Mexico and Volador’s isn’t too far behind but the problem with the building of this match is, all summer they teased LA Park vs Rush in a hair vs mask match, the most valuable mask vs the most valuable hair, a living legend vs the current top guy in Mexico. It’s like teasing Hulk Hogan vs Stone Cold and then instead they give us, HBK And HHH vs Scott Hall and Kevin Nash in their prime.
It would be a great build and match but it’s not what the people would want after building Hogan vs Austin. I expect the crowd to be into the match but not as much as they should be. It’s almost a guarantee that Rush and Cavernario win because as I’ve mentioned before, if CMLL was willing to have Rush lose his hair, then they should have done LA Park vs Rush and have Park win to set up a future rematch. It would make no sense to have Rush lose.
There are no TV Tapings for AAA until September 30th.
What happened on recent AAA shows are the continuing of the Jeff Jarrett, Dr Wagner feud. Wagner challenged Jarrett to a hair vs hair match because he is still pissed that Jarrett and Konnan screwed Wagner out of the mega championship. LA Park seems to be feuding with Psycho Clown and Fantasma. Fantasma still wants a proper rematch against Park to get revenge on him losing his mask. And Park seems interested in a mask vs mask match with Psycho Clown. That will probably not happen because Psycho Clown is a top guy and much too young to lose his mask right now, and they already set up a tentative Park vs Wagner match for next years Triplemania.
Other feuds going on include the Mercenaries just beating on poor Maximo. The last two tapings they busted him open twice and Texano has beat him with his whip. So Maximo will have to find allies to combat Rey Escoprion, Texano, and La Mascara. Fantasma, also part of the mercenaries, isn’t involving himself much in this feud.
Scarlett Bordeaux of Impact Wrestling made her debut at the last two tapings and by the looks of it got over pretty well and Konnan stated on twitter that she will be back.
AAA is also promoting heavily the Impact Television tapings in Mexico City September 13th and 14th. These tapings are curious because one has to wonder as I keep bringing up, if Impact will follow the trend and bring in LA Park. But other than that, how will Impact write TV to take into account that Pentagon and Fenix are working the CMLL Anniversary show?
I assume they’d want to highlight those two because they’re in Mexico but the plan seems to be Fenix and Pentagon won’t be at the Friday tapings. With Bound For Glory happening on October 14th, with the two tapings days after (I will be at all three events), I assume they’re only writing TV for about 4 weeks so they could run an angle leaving them off the last two shows, or they’ll film all their segments on Thursday. I guess we will see.

Volador Jr, Angel de Oro, and Soberano vs El Terrible, Shocker (Stigma), and Vangellys
I feel like Shocker is the most common guy missing dates in CMLL. I just don’t understand why when CMLL uploads the shows on Youtube afterwards do they list the original card rather than what the card ended up being? Anyway, Stigma replaces Shocker. Soberano starts out with Stigma and they do some fast acrobatic grappling. Angel de Oro then comes in to roll with Stigma.
