CMLL held a press conference today, mostly for the Invader’s sake. Hector Garza was officially introduced as part of the group; it looks like Garza & Aguila may be co-leaders at the moment. To solve the problem of the clearly biased CMLL referee, the Indepedentes have their own referee: Tirantes Senor, of course.
June 6th was announced as a CMLL vs Invader show, not so coincidentally going up against TripleMania. They only announced the main event (or at least one match, which I figure is the main event), and what a match it is: Strong Man, Rayo de Jalisco Jr., Super Porky vs Giant Benard, Mascara Ano 2000, Universo 2000. That’d be a good match for Fox Sports to get! No word on the rest of the card, but we’ve got enough guys already to fill out two more trios matches (Psicosis, Histeria, Alebrije, Maniaco, Olimpico, Monsther – though he hasn’t been mentioned much since that first appearance.) They need about five more guys to fill out a card.
On that note, Zumbido tells Fuego en el Ring that he’s coming back to CMLL in a month or a month in a half. At any other time, it’d come off as empty talk to stir up interest (like when he did the same interview in February, or the times before that), but he is a name that’s been brought up for returning and would fit in with the Indepedent group. A month or six weeks is a little late for a show in three weeks.
There are clips of the AAA TV taping on the Box Y Lucha board.
Satanico responds to Solar, saying he never called himself the right hand of Diablo Velasco, just one of many people caring on his legacy, but would be open to a Solar/Satanico singles match for the 51st Arena Coliseo Guadalajara anniversary show.
Olimpico is very happy to be back with CMLL. He doesn’t care who he faces or where they put him on the card, he just wants to stay in CMLL long after the CMLL/Invader storyline ends.
DTU has listed third card for next Sunday. Besides the usual collection of guys, there’s also Cuervo & Espiritu vs the Traumas, and Ultimo Gladiador and Fabian el Gitano on opposite sides of a trios match.
Hernandez was back at this week’s TNA tapings, so he may not be long for AAA.
