Full Throttle (Coca Cola energy drink) is coming out with a Blue Demon version. The press release is here, and this is my favorite paragraph.
ï¿½This is a drink designed specifically for men who know the meaning of hard work, and no one captures the essence of this better than the Blue Demon, one of Mexicoï¿½s first and most enduring lucha libre stars.ï¿½

There’s supposed to be a big lucha show in Anahiem on 11/18. (So Cal thread, ticketmaster), though they’ve already pulled Negro Casas & Mistico from the lineup. You’ll notice that the website they’re listing at the bottom of the poster, fcwlive.com, just is a poster for a previous show which never actually occurred, so there’s a bit of skepticism here.
Outside of Chicago, there’s a show in Elgin featuring local indy lucha guys. Running at 4 PM on a Sunday is great (if they’re really running at 4 PM.) I’m planning on making this one.
