That’s totally Ramstein and not Jeque in the cover shot of El Halcon #63. They’re going to take my badge away if I keep messing up vital information like that.
The link to El Halcon #63 isn’t up as I type this, but fooling around, I’ve been able to skim a couple pages. Early highlights are finding out Mascara Purpura was born in Florida (being an American totally explains the standing SSP in mind, and yet now I have more questions), and Mr. Mexico via google’s translation on his style: “Very robust and very bad”. Don’t look at me, he said it.

I don’t know. Don’t trust any card where Mil Mascaras is supposed to be working 4th from the top is all I’m saying.
Misterioso II is hoping the third try is lucky; he at least snagged a good partner in Perro. He’s gotten farther each year so far, and he’s been training hard.
Hombre Sin Nombre thinks it’s a big responbitlity to be teaming with someone like Garza, “the best rudo in Mexico”, and is proud to be in the tournament. This could open many doors!
Rey Bucanero reminds us he’s won this as the ‘rookie’, teaming with Emilio. Having been on both sides of it, Rey feels advancing is much more dependent on the rookie’s perfomance than the vet’s.
Nitro is happy to have Ultimo Guerrero as a partner. Nitro feels ready to go the main event and hopes to prov eit.
