05/01: not much

Getting a bit thin at this point. Doesn’t help that Ovaciones hasn’t put it’s edition online, but it’s not like there’s a lot to talk about still, or will be in the next few days. It’s a little bit amusing that SuperLuchas has to point out that they’ll still be coming out this week – this is sure a week where having a worldwide focus helps a Mexican magazine fill pages. I presume Luchas 2000, Guerreros del Ring and Box Y Lucha will as well, but they must have a lot of writing to do.

The bits of news to watch for, as an indication of how things are going:
– the first half of the week is wiped out for sure, but if May 6th is the last day of this quarantine as has been said, lineups should start to turn up for Thursday’s IWRG show and Friday’s Arena Mexico. And they’ll probably be out in the next few days.
– on the other hand, if they’re going to wipe out next weekend as well, we would expect to hear about the Perros/Record and ACG shows being postponed sometime soon.

Box Y Luchas has a new video up

Lagunera area shows remain canceled this weekend.

The Gladiatores also has a three part interview with Babe Richard and a profile of a local mask maker.

DJ Spectro reports interviews with Gemelos Fantasticos and La Diabolica, plus Guapito talks his new group.

Segunda Caida looks at their 25th most enjoyable wrestler of 2009, Oficial 911.

  1. Oh, so that’s what the was. Let’s see if I can help them out there.

    FWIW, anyone can if they just give me a heads up and don’t plan on using it in sigs or other repeated places where it’d just be easier for everyone to use a free image host.

  2. You know Cubs, with all this down time your or Tony should try to get a interview with Marco Corleone to see how it’s going down there in Mexico from a personal take.

  3. A little bit a news…
    I gotta message from Shiima Xion that because of the swine flu show cancellations and what not he isn’t starting up for AAA now until June 20th.
    Considering he was scheduled to start 5/1, this flu deal is obviously gonna screw up things for awhile schedule wise…

  4. You know, I thought you guys were all being dicks about Blue Demon Jr until I went to one of the NWA tapings and saw him wrestle live. I’m sorry you guys.

  5. Demon Jr. is beyond shitty but since he has the NWA Title all the Mexicans on the forums are sucking his dick proclaiming him to be the best wrestler in Mexico. SuperLuchas, which is usually very honest with their coverage of shows (they constantly report Mistico being boo’ed or botched spots by CMLL guys), absolutely refuses to mention how the crowd at the ROH shows hated Demon and his match was considered the worst of the show. Total protection.

    Strange that Xion was scheduled to debut on 5/1 and they announced him coming in 2 months in advance. Quite strange.

  6. Shiima Xion? Really? Out of all the possible indy workers Konnan could bring in if he wants, he picks Shiima Xion?

    Seriously?

    Luchas 2000 just posted a message in the ByL forum (that’s kinda funny) saying they aren’t doing an issue this week.
