Evil Dark Monkey helped the rudos win the main event. Did the name contest for him get dropped? Mini Damian fouled Bam Bam in the segunda.
AAA has a preview of the 07/01 taping. No new details.
El Halcon #93 is up. Inside:
– Interview with Mini Halloween & Mini Damian, who both note they were really awful when they debuted (prior to this gimmicks.) They’re not awful now. To prepare for last year’s bodybuilding contest, Mini Damian says he dropped from 85 kg to 73 (187 lb to 160). They want Mini Olimpico’s championship (they accuse him of hiding the belt so he doesn’t have to defend it) and Ultimo Dragoncito’s mask.
– preview of a card in Chipas on 07/14
– Interview with Euforia & Nosfearatu. Euforia shares the same trainer as Sobearno Jr, but claims he’s never ever used another name “professionally.” Nosferatu says he wrestled as Camelot three times while living in Chicago – if jtron or Rob or anyone from CPW is reading this, do you recall him at all? They note it’ll be difficult to surpass the success of prior Infernales, but they’re going to try. Satanico’s a very demanding leader.

Pantera is headed back to the group at some point (and is going to AJPW at some point prior.) As always, I’d point you towards ChikaraFans.com, who provided these results, for something a bit more coherent about the group. I really need to add a link to them to the sidebar.
Turbo, Skayde, Black Pentagon and Black Thunder are headed to Dragon Gate from July 8th to August 13th.
This is not news, but I think everyone would be well off if Chessman went to NOAH for a tour, like ASAP. I wouldn’t even care about him winning, but it’d be good for him to work with theoretically better guys his size. Whoever’s been laying out his matches of late has done a nice job of making his spear mean something, and I get the impression they’re very slowly grooming him for more down the line. Still, if there’s ever a time to do it, it’s right now as they’re pushing Cibernetico teaming with the tecnicos he hasn’t before. You don’t need Chessman around for that.
