As originally mentioned on their Thursday radio show, LuchandoLibre says Black Warrior will resume his career shortly, in AAA. This would be a return to AAA – he was a regular from 1992-1995, during the part of his career where he was frequently switching gimmicks and before he became Black Warrior. There had been rumors of this sort of jump last year, but more recent reports had him being disinterested in the wrestling business after leaving CMLL. AAA tapes next Sunday.
Can’t link to it, because the PDF version of Ovaciones is not working, but their big lucha story is Super Nova confirming he’s signed with WWE and will be starting there. He worked that same tryout match as Incognito, and similarly will probably be heading to FCW until/if they have an idea for him. Thing that’s the important thing to remember (for these guys and Dos) – there’s a little bit to the idea of getting use to the different style, but WWE’s brings in new people to their main shows based on having an idea for them, and not as much as on their performance. Bad performance can get you dropped, but you can find plenty of stories about talented people who never got out of developmental.
Al Filo del Ring has a pair of interviews from today’s DTU show: unmasked Ultimo Gladiador talks about joining the Wagnermaniacos, and Crazy Boy says he’s retiring from extreme wrestling after this show, though DTU will go on without him.

A Puebla mask maker talks about the changes in mask making. He says it costs him 200-300 pesos ($16-$23.5) to make a professional mask, and they sell at 2000-5000 pesos ($158-$394), and then he complains the wrestlers want cheaper masks today (which doesn’t seem a surprise for 5000 pesos.)
Cesar reviews this week’s lineups, notes the lack of trios with any natural union.
SuperLuchas #346 has their 2009 awards. I don’t want to give it away, but I’m pretty sure you can not possible guess the tecnico of the year. (I’m not kidding.) The concept of 2009 awards seems familiar, as if there’s something I’m supposed to be remembering to do about now.
