Though Black Warrior is working with the Perros, he’s also back to appearing on AAA shows in northern Mexico. The actual news here was LA Park getting into an altercation with a fan, which was captured on video and shown on TV news. This is not the first or last time for LA Park, but the thread link notes the fan involved has their own history of similar events. I have not seen the video, but it sounds like it goes very bad for the fan. Do not screw with LA Park!
RFC says the top 4 matches were all taped for TV.
Masked Republic will announce today the Viva La Lucha: Revolution show has been picked up by Dish Network.
Mascara Dorada says winning the trios titles proves Mexico has the best wrestling in the world, and proves they didn’t need Hector Garza as much as Hector thinks. His team knew Tanahashi was tough, so they made sure to take him 3 on 1 at the end. Tanahashi, who’s taking Negro Casas’ place on tonight’s Arena Mexico show, is still confused by losing and would like to return to Mexico at some point. Tanahashi and Sombra are headed to Japan after this show, and Gigante Bernard is in the next couple of days.
In other CMLL changes, the Sunday cibernetico is actually a 12 man match – Dr. X, Hooligan, Delta, and Rey Cometa were meant to be listed in that match, not in their own separate tag. It’ll be interesting to see how this airs on 52MX in a couple weeks – only 4 matches means the opener should turn up.
Despite the higher than usual prices, IWRG had one of it’s larger crowds of the year for Sunday’s show. The Gladiatores has video interviews with opening match wrestler Daga and Director General of IWRG Marco Antonio Moreno; talk about the deal with AAA & IWRG, but sadly no explanation of what the deal is with Teleformula. Congrats to the The Gladiatores on reaching four years, by the way.
While AAA’ s site says it has no idea if both or neither of the AAA teams will be in the tag title match at TripleMania, NOAH’s announced the match as a four way. To be fair, everyone but AAA is saying this is a fourway; don’t know if they still have an angle to run but I can’t imagine when or why.
