RECAP: CMLL Lucha Azteca 8/23/14 (8/8/14)

Written By Alfredo Esparza Show actually started with the full intro this time around. The Azteca America affiliate here (there are two on Dish Network. One is the East coast feed & the other the West.

Vandal’s Musings #2: Rush vs. Negro Casas, Ernie Ladd & El Minotauro!

Written by Vandal Drummond RUDOS & HEELS! I finally watched the Negro Casas vs Rush Hair vs Hair match earlier today. Damn, the chemistry these two have together is dynamite! Beautifully worked match; Rush came off as a cocky rogue who has both the youth and energy to surpass Casas. That said, Casas did not play a weathered, tired old-timer, but a veteran who still has a fuckuva lot of fight in... [Read more]

RECAP: Triplemania XXII 8/17/14

Written By Alfredo Esparza So after trying to watch the show live on iPPV and then later on VOD, it became pretty impossible to watch the show that way, so I went an alternate route that worked a lot better.
