Okay, calm down, that may be an overstatement. Here’s the story from La Oreja (where this surely aired tonight), google translated
El Hijo del Perro Aguayo announced that it ceased to belong to the World Wrestling (CMLL), along with his group of fighters known as Los Perros del Mal because they founded their own company luchística.
Los Perros del Mal in this way become a new proposal for the fans and surely in coming days will give its cast of gladiators
El Hijo del Perro Aguayo is not the only fighter who has taken such decisions, another example is the Son of Santo who founded his own company functions he has done so in England.
There’s been talk about Perro and company going independent and setting up their own booking office, but I understood it as they’d still work CMLL TV shows but book their own spot show dates. This article makes it sound like they’re going 100% on their own. Perhaps the article is incorrect and just over states the separation? We’ll surely find out soon. Santo being referenced here is a good comparison – unless there’s a TV deal attached to this, it’s a really questionable long term move for the Perros to go their own way. Perro Jr is a regular on this gossip, which is enough to get them attention but I don’t know if you can build a regular circuit around gossip shows.
Perros leaving would open up a lot of spots on the rudo side. They haven’t been big time players since Perro Jr. went out four months ago, but the Villanos probably are going to get milked harder, guys like Misterioso would expect to be a little higher up, and guys like Tuareg might get more regular bookings. Of course, moving up the card doesn’t mean as much if business is down, and Perro Jr. not coming back to boost it is going to hurt (and hurt or not, Mistico’s going to have even more pressure on him.)
OTOH, CMLL, if you have an extra Mistico hiding around somewhere, it might be time to use him. Personally, I’m just hoping the Mini Perros are not part of this deal.
All kidding aside, it’ll be intersting to see who goes where; you’d figure Garza would end up with the group leaving, but what of guys like Averno & Mephisto who were bolted on to the group? Which freelance guys – Halloween? – try to join in? And, if this is a full split, how fast does IWRG try to book them for a Friday night show? I’m sure the phone is ringing.
