Has anyone sent in their Tapatia ballots yet? Usually I have some by now, but I’ve received o.

Cesar says Terrible & Texano will be headed to NJPW for their G-1 Tag Climax, with Hector Garza & Ultimo Guerrero perhaps working a tour prior.

AAA looks back at the recent issues between Mesias & Cibernetico. I like looking back farther, to Ciberenetico sealing Mesias in a coffin, setting it on fire, and dumping it into the ocean.

Blue Demon Jr. is working on a jewelry and a clothing line. Also, he’s defending the NWA title vs Sicodelico this weekend, but that’s not as interesting.

La Parka Jr. doesn’t consider himself an idol on the level of Octagon. He’s probably right.

LA based luchador Chippy Sanchez was arrested for sexually assaulting a 12 year old.

Vangelis talks about being inspired by Hitler. Really.

Ovaciones has a story on Fuka’s match tonight at Arena Naucalpan. So does SuperLuchas.

Fuego en el Ring has a report on troublemaking fans in Arena Coliseo Guadalajara, who have lately been more the women. They also talk to El Hijo del Santo about what he’s up to.

Sooner than May!

Main event is the debut of Black Spirit under the Hijo de LA Park name, and it’s kind of surprising LA Park isn’t there with him. Maybe they’re saving it.

Technically, the semimain is an Extreme bull terrier match. So you know.

Second match is notable for the women. Estrellita was listed as working on AAA spot shows as late as two weeks ago, and I guess she could still change her mind (again). Medussa was last seen losing her hair in Guadalajara one year ago, then become a new mom over the summer.

As much as there was talk about bringing in Todos x el Todos guys on these shows after Santo worked the main event, that never has seemed to happen. There was no announcement about an alliance with Super Crazy’s promotion in Tulancingo, but his guys have been turning up a lot in the bottom half of the card. (They’re a lot cheaper, surely.)

Looking at the taping schedule:

03/01-03/15: Ecatepc 02/20 taping
03/22-04/06: this show
04/13-04/27: unknown taping in early April
05/04-05/18: Tijuana 05/01 taping

Can TVC Deportes and Perros del Mal turn around a taping in 3 days, especially one that far from Mexico City? They’re probably going to need to squeeze out an extra week from the three tapings before it.
