04/21: Koji Kanemoto & Wataru Inoue b Sangre Azteca & Prince Devit (Inoue Triangle Lancer Devitt)
Devitt’s a rookie, so whoever teams with him is probably screwed during this tour. Sangre’s teaming with him and Lyger on the next show.

El Halcon #60 is up
– interview with Ultimo Dragon. He talks about Toryumon but just the basics. He explains “the Dragon” idea as a request from WWE (“Mr. McMahon” specifically) to come up with a new identity before returning to the WWE. The fans in Japan wanted the old Ultimo Dragon back, so he’s back to the old name. The “Asai DDT” is now “the Dragon Cutter”.
– Addiccion Luchistica talks about the new tag champs, Latin Lover, and the members of the box y lucha forum meeting the likes of Canek and Fuerza Guerrera
– interview with Emilio Charles Jr. He never saw his father wrestle, but people who knew said he was a pioneer. Emilio thinks some of the newer guys aren’t going to hold up a long time, because they’re taking too many risks. They need to realize it’s wrestling and not a circus.
– Results from 04/11 Queretaro. Dr. Wagner got annoyed by the drumming of a rudo fan group, so he broke their drumstick!
– Q&A with Hooligan. He has seven brothers. His favorite singer is Shakira.
– Interview with the mysterious Hombre Sin Nombre. His family didn’t want him to wrestle, but decided that it was better than him getting on drugs. (That’s an either/or?) Satanico and Blue Panther are training him now. He’s wearing black because his heart is black. He’s not sure if he’s going to stick with the name.
