Black Warrior to AAA, Super Nova to WWE, Crazy Boy to not extreme wrestling

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.

Mini Cibernetico is banned form wrestling in Nuevo Laredo until the whole stabbing thing gets cleared up. This seems reasonable. (via Delac @ SML)

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.

Cronicas y Leyendas looks back at El Solitario talking about his mask match with Angel Blanco and Canek in Madison Square Garden.

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.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

If you’re outside the US, you can talk to Octagon and Cibernetico about the AAA movie on Tuesday in a video chat with Televisa DEportes. If you’re in the US, you’re blocked as usual.

  1. I never tweeted about this and it’s not fun to put in the news update until I can give a link, but this week’s Ras de Lona was clearly taped the same place/time they did the big full roster camera shot in the field. That one was done in early/mid Decemeber, so Ras de Lona hasn’t been in production in weeks (which explains why they never squeezed in a mention about Averno/UG to Japan or the trios tournament.)

  2. Black Warrior in AAA… meh. Another silly move for two reasons:

    1) He’ll no-show a TV or major show at some point.

    2) He won’t work spot shows. If spot show business is down – why are we signing guys who won’t be working those shows intstead of building up guys who are going to be on those shows?

    Not related to anything in this post but do you think the mini’s Torneo on Friday is the Pequeno Reyes Del Aire? They usually do it around this time.

  3. Speaking of Ultimo unmasked, I actually sat on the same bus with him while he was returning from Tokyo last week. Let’s just say, he wears a mask for a reason.
