María de Los Ángeles Sánchez Rueda and Estela González Calva, the two women found guilty of murdering La Parkita & Espectrito II last June, were sentenced to 47 years in jail. If they’re required to serve out the full term, it’s essentially life in prison for both.
Reynosa wrestler La Imagen, Jorge Cantu was killed by gunfire. He was 30. It sounds as if the Army was chasing drug dealers, and Imagen and two other people were caught in the middle.
The IWRG Heavyweight title match for the Lucha Libre Expo will actually be Silver King defending against Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., not Parka. Makes much more sense.
Gato Volador lost his hair to Red Flamer on Sunday.
Ovaciones hypes up the tag title match on Friday.
Silueta declared to Fuego en el Ring that she’d expose the fake Puerto Rician Seuxis on Sunday. A fake Puerto Rician in lucha libre? Crazy! I don’t have a good feel about who’s going to lose their mask, but I do find it unlikely that a new mom would work hard to get back into ring shape only to lose her mask a couple masks after returning. Also on Fuego, Mascara Dorada talks about his latest win.
DJ Spectro has a recent interview with El Halcon.
Perros del Mal mentions Perro Aguayo Jr. will be on the cover of a magazine that comes out in August. Better Housekeeping? (No. Dos de Tres.)
Amapola talks to ESTO about wrestling at the Lucha Libre expo and being part of the fashion show.
Rob looks back at his favorite Oriental & Histeria memories. They all seem to end in the early 2000s.
EAW (SAT) 07/17 Palenque de la Feria de Chilpancingo, Guerrero
1) Dinamita Kid & Silver Dragon vs Neurosis & Startron
2) Kung Fu Jr. & Turbo vs Cerebro Negro & Thunder Black
3) Chico Che, Pollito, Pollo vs Chamuel, Henry, Ku Kux Klan
4) Eriak DErico vs Leiva Jones, Caroline More
5) Gigante Extasis vs Shawn Spears
6) El Hijo de Rey Misterio & Máscara Púrpura vs Super Crazy & Zumbido
7) Hijo del Lizmark & Latin Lover vs el Fauno & Juventud Guerrera
It certainly is an EAW show. Fauno is a debuting guy. At least I found out where Zumbido is.
PdM (SUN) 07/25 Centro Banamex
1) Drastik Boy, Konami, Naruto vs Heddi Karaoui, Pesadilla, Ragde
2) Celestial & Cósmico vs Mr. Aguilita & Talisman
3) Annie Social & Diva Salvaje vs Medussa & Shelly Martinez
4) el Ángel, El Hijo de Rey Misterio, Hijo de LA Park vs Bestia 666, Black Warrior, TJP
5) Supreme vs X-Fly, Damián 666 [hardcore]
6) el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Halloween, Hijo del Lizmark vs El Hijo Del Santo, LA Park, Marco Corleone
Updated lineup via R de Rudo – this one makes more sense. We do get that Damian 666 vs Supreme match, and the foreign guys do make the card. Hijo de Rey Misterio doesn’t get his match, but he only challenged for it, the Perros didn’t actually accept.
