I don't particularly like AAA's product but their minis division are fucking phenomenal. I sound like a broken record saying that but it's true. That said I don't particularly follow each and every show from either promotion. I rather focus on matches I'd like or keep to feuds I want to watch. Otherwise I just read the reports on Cubsfan. That said, I do end up watching a good proportion of the matches each week.
CMLL have a good few shows each week (Super Viernes is their biggest, check out the linked site) but they'll have a super show or PPV on Fridays in its place. These special events aren't that often, however. There are three main continual shows each year (Fantasticamania in January, Homenaje a Dos Leyendas in March & the Anniversary Show in September) along with a couple stand-alones to make up the gaps inbetween. While you get some big match-ups on the big shows, you are still treated to some great matches on the regular shows, too.
Second chances they don't ever matter, people never change.

TheCubsFan uploads CMLL weekly matches on Youtube.
CMLL has few PPV, 4-5 a year. I guess one for every season (Spring - Dos Leyendas, Summer - Infierno En El Ring, Autumn - Anniversary show, Winter - Sin Piedad). They also have a major PPV in January every year, co-promoted with NJPW, called Fantasticamania.
It depends on what type of lucha libre do you like. It you like bloody brawls, then AAA is for you. If you like technical wrestling, then you should watch CMLL.
I accept Hayley Williams rep.

Ángel de Oro, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada vs Mr. Águila, Psicosis, Volador Jr. - ***3/4-****
Really good match in my opinion, I'm just amazed seeing these guys doing unbelievable moves that I have never seen before with absolutely zero screw-ups. DAT Hurricanrana from outside was unreal, how the he did it? lol. Loved the Volador/Sombra exchanges, I assume they are feuding? a match between them sounds very good based on what I saw from both. Finish felt a little flat but still really great match. Oh, and of course, THIS thing happend during the match:
Is that the 02/02 show? I really need to rewatch it. I don't remember it at all except for it being so fun!
Volador/Sombra faced Guerrero/Atlantis which I pimped in the last page of this thread. I haven't seen it yet, as a friend wants to watch it with me, but I'd guess that should set up a feud between one of the teams. Money's on the older guys, though. Volador/Sombra do have a lengthy match-up resume, however, which is more a "who's the better young guy" than anything else. Mask match was called but that's just a tease and nothing more.
That said you should check out their matches. The Reyes Del Aire 2013 final is the most recent, afaik.
Spoiler for feud coming out of Dos Leyendas:
Ultimo Guerrero and Atlantis signed for a mask match. The date was left undecided, but there’s a 99.9% chance it will end up happening on the 80th Anniversary show in September. It’ll probably sell out the building.
The Dos Leyendas 2012 show is where Rush turned on his partner Terrible, setting up their hair match at the Anniversary show. So, yeah, looks like they'll do the same here
Can Atlantis just retire to make sure the plague of watching his matches these days doesn't continue? Pretty please, Atlantis. Do it and Party Rock your way into the sunset.
On that trios match asap. Mascara Dorada was the selling point. The best right there. Not to mention it is near the exact same six man that I creamed for earlier in the year. Just sub out Titan in the 1/25 match for Oro here and that's it.
