First, he discusses his thoughts on the matches. Then he discusses the reactions of his foreigner friends (me and my friend Hassan). Pretty great read through Google Translate! https://audioboom.com/posts/7009760-wrestlenomics-radio-cmll-anniversary-talk-with-live-report-from-will-from-texas-goodhelmet Here is a link to a podcast reaction show I did with mookieghana on his Wrestlenomics podcast.

    I have been all over the US (and Toronto) and this is one of my favorite cities. It's not a question of IF I will go back but WHEN. Everything was affordable... the hotel, the plane tickets, the CMLL tickets, the bootlegs on the streets, the lucha masks. I would do this trip again over any Wrestlemania trip in a heartbeat.

    I did this on purpose. I wanted to give match reactions and observations of the atmosphere without giving away any spoilers.

    CMLL 85th Anniversario Show

    I attended this show and Hell In A Cell. For Hell in a Cell, the rafters were packed and there were tons of empty seats on the floor and bottom bowl. For Anniversario, there were no empty seats in the bottom area of the arena. Arena Mexico has a unique setup where there is only one entrance to the rafters. You will see the bowl fill up from one side to the other and in the end, there was only a section or two not filled up right next to the left side of the stage. A near sellout but not quite.

    I am in MexicoCity right now, super amped after the show. I love this city. The atmosphere was the wildest I had ever experienced. It was so fucking surreal. I have no idea how it came across on TV but this is how the matches came across live... La Jarochita, Marcela and Princesa Sujey vs. Dalys la Caribeña, La Maligna and Reyna Isis Six-woman "Lucha Libre rules" tag team match Super fun opener!!! The first 2 falls were supwr crisp amd everything looked great live. 3rd fsll was a bit spotty but still fun. Crowd is a real rudo crowd... cheering for the rudas!!! 2Ángel de Oro, Audaz and Niebla Roja vs. La Peste Negra (Negro Casas, El Felino) and Mephisto Six-man "Lucha Libre rules" tag team match Negro Casas is so over. Insanely over. Match fell off the rails after the 1st fall but it was so much fun listening to the crowdlose their shit for Casas.... and I joined them.  3Atlantis, Místico and El Soberano vs. La Sangre Dinamita (El Cuatrero, Forastero and Sansón) Six-man "Lucha Libre rules" tag team match Atlantis is slow. This Rudo team is awesome. Segunda caida was amazing with non stop spots and dives . Atlantis fought over the rail right in front of us. After 2nd fall... insane new Jack level dive off top of stage. 3rd fall was awesome as well. 0ne little flub but they recovered. INSANE atmosphere amd the rudos were great. Mistico is so hated by this crowd. Match of the night so far.  4Los Guerreros Lagunero(Gran Guerrero, Euforia and Último Guerrero) vs. Klan Kaoz (Ciber the Main Man, The Chris and Sharlie Rockstar Six-man "Lucha Libre rules" tag team match for the CMLL World Trios Championship Crowd loved Ultimo. First technico they cheered. They don't like the CL4N. They are calling Cibernetico... Ciber-Puto and chanting "Culeros". I'll be honest. I wasn't watching the match. I was criwd watching. Ultimo Guerrero was OVER and treated like a legend.  5Carístico, El Hijo de L.A. Parkand L.A. Park vs. Diamante Azul and Los Lucha Bros(King Phoenix and Penta el 0M) Six-man "Lucha Libre rules" tag team match I was shocked at the tepid response to LA Parks entrance. My Mexican friend told me people are angry with him for not doing the Rush match. First fall was fun but not blowaway great. The crowd brawling to start Segunda Caida was Awesome live. Those LA Park belt shots were the sickest sounds I have ever heard at a wrestling match. 2nd fall was going great but there was a botch setting up a HUGE dive outside. Good fall with an anti climactic ending. Third fall was the fall of the night so far with false finishes, Parks dive, big moves, nasty crowd shots. The crowd is throwing money in the ring!!!! All six guys gave a bow as the crowd gave them a stsnding ovation and chanted ESTO ES LUCHA!!! 6Matt Taven and Volador Jr.vs Rush and Bárbaro Cavernario Best two-out-of-three falls tag team Lucha de Apuestas, hair vs. hair match Rush and Volador had amazing back to back entrances. Matt Taven is a Kendall Windham circa 1986 looking mother fucker. Right away, Barbaro does a splash off the top of the stage. So much action and chaos in the first fall. 2nd fall, not as hot as the first. This had more posturing and shtick with a hot finish. 3rd fall was one of the most intense feelings I have had as a wrestling fan. Every move and dive had the crowd on the edge of their seat. This was so amazing as a live experience. This was missing blood but it was pretty nuts. Have no idea how it came across on TV but it was the best live experience I have ever had at a wrestling show. Now for the haircutting...

    Question about current Metallica tour

    Metallica is playing in San Antonio tomorrow and a buddy of mine wants to know what time the band will go on. Doors open at 4 but concert starts at 6. Volbeat and Avenged Sevenfold are opening. Does anyone know the run times for the bands? If you saw them on this tour and know, that would be awesome!!!

    This may be the straw that broke the camels back after Golden State and San Antonio just had a bench vs bench televised match up last week.

    2016-17 NBA - 2nd Half

    Nice to see Kawhi Leonard is being mentioned in the MVP race. As a Spurs homer, of course I would love to see him win the award but he just needs to be in the conversation. I know Westbrook and Harden are having great stat years but Kawhi is having his best offensive year ever while also maintaining his DPOY status and keeping the Spurs in 2nd place (and closing in on the Warriors). Should be a fun race to the end.
