AAA mentions Abismo Negro’s passing on their website (and passed the story along to a sports recap show last night), but the link to the article (and others on the site) was non-functional last I check. The press department is saying it was a heart attack that killed Abismo, and I guess a heart attack could’ve been mistaken as the panic attack which caused him to get off the bus, but it’s probably not that simple. If you missed it, Noroeste updated their story late last night (though it looks like the site is getting overwhelmed with traffic at the moment.)
Luchando Libre has a good collection of Abismo Negro videos. SuperLuchas has his Abismo’s last interview on Tercera Caida and an obit.
(Whatever the Juvi/Konnan thing was, it’s probably not getting much attention now.)

CMLL (SUN) 03/22 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [MT]
4) Felino, Satanico, Virus b Mascara Dorada, Mictlan, Valiente
5) Averno, Mephisto, Texano Jr. b Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Ultimo Guerrero
Texano ripped off Atlantis mask and pinned him for the slight upset win.
CMLL (SUN) 03/22 Arena Coliseo [Ovaciones]

4) Hijo del Fantasma, La Mascara, La Sombra b Dragon Rojo Jr., Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca
5) Hector Garza, Mistico, Shocker DQ Ephesto, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
Ephesto replaced Heavy Metal, who showed up in a neck collar to apologize for not wrestling. Hector Garza took Marco’s spot (and must now have a lot of ideas for new spots to use.) Negro pulled Mistico’s mask and got caught for once, but apparently looked like the better man.
Al Filo del Ring also has interviews with Cibernetico & Canek about Wagner and their match (Cibernetico won the main event!) and Black Terry about wrestling.
Box Y Luchas 2915 has Villano unmasked and the headlines from Rey de Reyes. Article teasers include Konnan accusing Intocable of whoring himself out and Black Warrior saying he’s not going to AAA. The Juvi/Jack/Konnan story appears to have made the magazine as well.
A bit of a delayed reaction but – who else is running GDL on 04/03 that CMLL feels the need to do the extra show? They’ve always been running opposed in GDL for the Arena Mexico-like shows. Perros show, I presume.
LuchaWorld has Robert on 10/05 and 10/12/03 Monterrey.
