Finally, probably, Atlantis will face Ultimo Guerrero with their legendary masks on the line. Last year led to "fraude" chants when the match didn't happen.

Here is the card. The show is expected to be the most profitable in company history.

Watch them find a reason to not do the match.

Some interesting things on that show. I don't know what kind of match Ultimo/Atlantis can possibly be but it'll be cool to finally see it. Cavernario in an apuestas sounds awesome. The Rush/Casas tag should be good as always.

Maybe it won't be their biggest show ever

Waited too long to pull the trigger and not enough people care anymore?

On a related note, I wish they never renovated Arena Mexico.

On a less related note, I wish they would blade in apuestas matches again.

Blading in Mexico is just begging for hep.

But can't they just test guys for big matches and get the okay? Who wants to see a mask or hair match without blood.

I think price has to be the problem. They just drew 14,000 for the Rush vs Casas hair match and if it were related to last year's show it would be an overall killing of the promotion.

September 19th, 2014, 9:36 PM
I've noticed that too

Opener had fun moments but was pretty sloppy

September 19th, 2014, 10:26 PM
Booing Puerto Rico right now

The match was much better than I was expecting I have to say

Cometa vs Cavernario was a hell of a match.

September 19th, 2014, 11:13 PM
poor hair

September 20th, 2014, 12:22 AM
Poor mask

I quite enjoyed that match

September 20th, 2014, 12:29 AM
Guerrero unmasks as Jose Hernandez

September 20th, 2014, 12:44 AM
That felt like the biggest wrestling match in God knows how long

Rewatched UG/Atlantis, it's a real classic. Considering the work, atmosphere, post-match, importance, I might have to put it as my MOTY so far. Or at least #2 since I just loved Honma/Shibata so much.

What did you think of the tag title match. I was super into it when Rush and Casas were in together not so much with Mascara and Shocker.

I was pretty sick that night so should really also rewatch that and Cavernario/Cometa to get a good idea of how I feel about them, but I liked it a lot but felt it went on several minutes too long and ran out of steam at the end. Rush/Casas stuff was obviously the best stuff in the match, that's like a tautology, but Mascara and Shocker looked good to me.

Watching this show right now; half-way through the Tag title match, and will probably save the main event for tomorrow. This has been an exceptionally good show; the opening was great, the cibernetico was good fun (and from what I've seen the CMLL girls take a great big shit over the AAA girls) Volador getting tossed around by Thunder is always good times, and the hair-vs-hair match was fantastic. Seriously, they have something special with Cavernario.

Rush, however, continues to be the greatest man alive, and I will not hear any arguments otherwise, for they are foolish and untrue. Attention CMLL, here's your 4-step plan for the next Anniversary show.

Step 1.) Give all the titles to Rush and have him beat everybody.
Step 2.) Build up Cavernario while keeping him out of Rush's way.
Step 3.) Have build-up to Cavernario vs. Rush for all titles. And, then, you know, have the match.
Step 4.) Profit.

Rush vs. Atlantis, mask v. hair.
