Other News

This vignette aired on CMLL TV this past week and is being hyped elsewhere by the promotion. There was previous talk that Magnus would be reintroduced prior to the start of the A&E Luchador series, and that starts in three weeks. This is probably him, though it looks a little bigger than that. It’ll probably go just as well as the first time. La Catedral notes the figure actually looks a bit like Dragon Rojo Jr – hey, remember they used his silhouette for Nueva Era CMLL? I’m still waiting for that one.

SuperLuchas #433 has Dr. Wagner on the cover and shots of a half full Arena Mexico in a column inside. (Some of the coulmn is here.) The El Amigo De Siempre column mentions the next Toryumon Mexico show is 10/23 and mentions there’s a new lucha promotion coming to AYM Sports (but that’s about all he says about it, no helpful specifics.)

Black Terry Jr. posted video of Sairus/Mascara Oriental vs Peligro/Pesdailla from the XMW show.

Rob has highlights of the 09/20 CMLL C3 show.

LuchaWorld has Ras de Lona from two weeks ago and KrisZ’s lucha report.
