Not much news today. Ovaciones still thinks Samoa Joe will be in Mexico today, and I guess I’m going to have to go to Chicago Ridge to find the Truth! (who probably will be in Mexico, so good luck finding him.)

recapper unhappily noted some fans were throwing objects at the rudos, including eggs and “heads and legs of chicken”. I guess I’m not supposed to find that hilarious, but I can’t help it. Some of those fans were thrown out.

Did I link the Onion “Illegal Mexican Wrestlers” article this week? Some parts are far less parody than the writer may believe. Call me crazy, but the first picture, labeled Rey Misterio, sure looks like Tarzan Boy booting Dos Caras Jr. I guess you could tell better if Dos was standing up. It may still be too soon for that last paragraph.
There’s an update about the Chicago lucha shows in April.
Not quite as local (to me), IWR‘s been running some bizzaro lineups; combinations of US indy talent and Mexico lucha stars. Their next show, 05/06, are scheduled to have Ultimo, Rey, Wagner and LA Park. Road trip, anyone? It’s only a 6 hour trip! (Thanks to mikeinformer for the reminders.)
