In an interview for Dos de Tres, El Brazo says the rumors aren’t true, he’s not going back to CMLL. What rumors? I guess this is just a reaction to the Brazo family stuff CMLL has been doing. El Brazo says he’ll be loyal to AAA forever.
Metalico is out of action after hitting the arm of a chair badly, and ending up with an abscess in his left buttock. He underwent surgery and was supposed to get out of the hospital yesterday.
CMLL’s Twitter says Diamante will have a new look on Friday. Maybe I can do live results for both shows on Friday, because waiting every twenty minutes for updates from GdT seems a bit lame. (Depends how far I’m on TV. Haven’t got AAA done, stopped just before the third fall of the Sin Salida semifinal.)
NJPW announced the last two participants in the Super J a couple days ago, and neither of them are Sombra (or anyone else from CMLL.) Don’t remember if I was smart enough to mention here, but I figured this was the way it was headed after Sombra wasn’t in the initial 14. There just didn’t seem to be any reason to hold back his name, since it doesn’t have much value in Japan. (The names they did hold back were both NOAH wrestlers, probably to wait to setup the NJPW/NOAH interaction.) There’s always the possible Sombra is going for some non-tournament action, but CMLL had plenty of press events to announce things like that, and have not. Maybe plans changes, maybe I was wrong in the first place. (Definitely wrong with how it turned out.)
Nikkia, who was mentioned as working Rey Bucanero’s last club show but hasn’t been seen yet, still gets a profile article on Televisa Deportes, just so they can some text to go along with the pictorial.
