TV History

A weekly wrestling show from Guadalajara aired for many years, though not much is known of the show and only scattered recordings of the show exist. The show existed around 2005, and a local show was airing as late as 2013. These were primarly Tuesday shows, though it was also believed a local Televisa affiliate was airing the Sunday shows at one point.

CMLL began handling recording of the shows, or at least the Tuesday ones, themselves in the early 2010s. It's believed they were recording full shows, though most of the matches were not seeing air anywhere. CMLL's show on 52MX (Guerreros del Ring (TV Show)) started airing the top three matches from the show midway 2014 thru midway 2015. The local Televisa affiliate began airing the Tuesday night matches again at that point.
