All the talk about Maximo vs Taichi brings up Maximo losing his hair to Okumura last year. He’s going to look really dumb if he loses again. The press conference said that match will be the main event, which means the heavyweight match of doom slides to 52MX and the relevos match will be on Fox Sports. Figured something like that would happen. Not really sure which main event I’d rather see, which is a totally offensive statement to Maximo and Taichi. NJPW picked up the story and Taichi says Maximo has accused him of “also being gay”, so clearly tensions are high. The Gladiatores has video of the contract signing. Superluchas wonders why this isn’t Mascara’s spot; my guess is that match is down the road. Kcidis says this one looks very predictable.
Dr. Wagner says Electroshock was a bug in the dark before joining the WagnerManiacos, no one knew who he was until Wagner shined his light on him. Basically, Wagner sees himself as Hector Garza, except he’s still actually the good guy. Meanwhile, Electroshock says he will not accept help from the rest of the Maniacos in his match, and plans on using his technical skill to win. He’s the bad guy.
While TripleMania will only air on PPV in Mexico and not for many months in the United States, a two hour version will air on 06/28 on Japan’s Samurai! TV. (Thanks to Alfredo.) This probably means it’ll be on the internet around 06/29, even if no one rips it straight from the PPV.
CMLL says Atlantis vs Volador is signed for 06/01 (fan appreciation cut prices, twice in a week) but has held off on putting the entire lineup so far.
Brazo de Plata says losing weight helped him beat Asesino Negro, and wouldn’t mind a hair match with Satanico next. I think there’s a line for that one.
El Hijo del Santo and his lawyer dropped by Mexico City’s Attorney General office to work on a lawsuit about copyright violations, but didn’t want to talk about who they were suing. Which surely makes sense from a legal sense, but you don’t usually get much secrecy when walking around in your silver mask.
Speaking of Santo, Perro Aguayo Jr. did a video interview pushing the idea of a Perro vs Santo in a hair vs mask match in Mexico City’s Zocalo city square. That’d be a great visual – wikipedia says they fit 210,000 there for a Shakira concert – though it seems highly unlikely.
Ultimo Guerrero is willing to defend his heavyweight championship against Misterioso (which also seems highly unlikely), and challenges Rayo de Jalisco and Dr. Wagner while he’s at it.
Ohtani’s Jacket returns with a review of Black Terry & Cerebro Negro vs Trauma I & Trauma II.

Garza gets to team with Terrible and Texano. Suck to be Averno right now – Mistico’s beating you at every occasion, and Hector’s going to steal two of your followers.
