AAA’s Rey de Reyes will be on 03/12 in Queretaro. Probable matches based on TV:
- Rey de Reyes tournament, in some form
- Alex Koslov vs Extreme Tiger [AAA CRUISER]
- Cibernetico vs Konnan (probably not a multiman match, they need bodies for the tournament)
- Mesias vs Latin Lover vs Electroshock [AAA HEAVY]
If they’re doing the usual 16 man/5 match tournament, then they probably only have room for one more match. Not sure they’re actually doing that until it’s announced.
AAA says TripleMania will be in DF, with more details coming. They also note Dorian is listening to Konnan again. They mean on TV.
A few different places have a CMLL article on Taichi. They’re talking about Taichi being trained by Hiroshi Hase and mention that he used to be a rival of No Limit, but they’ll be on the same page now. Ovaciones’ article says Okumura, Taichi and Naito will be a trio on next Friday’s card.
Fuego en el Ring talks to Metal Blanco & Gallo, who are ready for a mask match with Palacio Negro & Neutron. Also, Mascara Dorada talks about training with Atlantis in preparation for the tournament win.
SuperLuchas interviews X-Fly, who’s already thinking ahead to the hair match past this the announced championship team.
Box Y Lucha has an interview with indy wrestler Guardian de la Noche.
Ohtani’s Jacket starts a 1998 Sampler with Santo/Panther/Warrior vs Negro/Atlantis/Niebla.
The SegundaCaida folks have started an IWRG Message Board. I want to say something snarky like “for all your thoughts about Alan Extreme”, but that’s more a joke about naming yourself Alan Extreme. I’m pretty sure I’d be using my time wiser watching YouTube IWRG than finishing recapping lame duck AAA from December.
