Main event turned into a Tirantes Sr. special, blatantly counting fast for Aguila and slow for Mistico. Aguila got in a foul, which Tirantes ignored, for the win. I think Mr. Aguila just jumped to the front of the line!
Demus pinned Bam Bam with his feet on the ropes.
I had this wrong earlier on Twitter – it was SuperLuchas who has Verando de Escandalo as August 6, not the WON. SuperLuchas also reports CIMA & Nosawa are due back in July.
Groon XXX is back in the hospital. A painkiller he took after his most recent knee injury was causing abscesses to form on his knees. Groon will undergo surgery and be in the hospital for up to fifteen days.
Super Nova was listed as working a show with Atlantis, Rey Bucanero and Sombra in Ciudad Juarez tonight, so maybe he’s headed back to CMLL or at least working with them when not doing the Lucha Libre USA bit. There was a note in the Observer that AAA wasn’t going to use anyone working the Masked Warriors show. With the Perros not running more shows even before this invasion started (and haven’t announced much lately), Nova may be low on options.
Heroes en el Ring notes from the Bit Bag (scroll down until you see Super Fly with a grab bag; must’ve been visiting the other booths at E3)
The Lucha Libre: Heroes del Ring (the Wii version) was pretty cool and I got the chance to talk to the developer. Unlike other wrestling games, this focuses on the cultural aspect, since these wrestlers are held in such high regard in Mexico. When you’re grappling, you can perform certain moves depending on where the icon is set on the bar. Also, it’s very important to win over the crowd, so that you can perform better. This is a must buy for those looking for something different when it comes to wrestling games.
I hadn’t heard of anyone seeing the Wii version, but it sounds like it plays like the other ones.
Intrusto I had his retirement match tonight in Arena Aficion, after a 33 year career.
SuperLuchas #369 has Kelly Kelly in a Team Mexico jersey. Also Rayo & Vampiro.
Luchas 2000 #526 has Mr. Niebla, Mistico vs Invaders, and Lyger.
LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.
AAA TV results in a bit.
