Episode 13: A Guide to CMLL in 2016
The usual rundown of the show takes a bit of a break this week as we debut part one of a special 2 part series covering the big modern day Lucha Libre companies, with this week’s supercharged edition focusing on the oldest wrestling promotion in the entire world, Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre, CMLL. All sorts of fun tidbits and behind the scenes prospects of the modern day version of the company. Is Paco Alonso as bitter as people make him out to be? Why do Lucha Titles mean so little? Why are masks so important? What is Informa? Just who are the main eventers in CMLL and what are some of their backstories? A lot is covered on this mega sized edition of Lucha Talk from the intracies of the style, how the show is run, business successes and so much more. A highly important show to listen to if you’re a new or casual fan of CMLL and want to get into it more and even longtime fans get the Trios’ unique takes on the company and many of its top stars. (Sadly Leono nor Luciferno quite got an in depth breakdown) Keep an eye out for next week’s show chronicling Arena México’s competition, AAA.
