This was the show where Astro de Plata. R de Rudo has info on Astro de Plata’s injury and fundraising merchandise selling for his medical bills. The Gladiatores has account info for donations.

No IWRG results from last night yet. IWRG on AYM aired at least part of the 01/01 show yesterday.

In this week’s SuperLuchas (#497), the Desde la Tercera column goes over Thunder’s background. He’s been training for six months in the US, but had previously wrestled in Australia and Japan for six years. I know Japanese promotion Zero One uses wrestlers from Australia (there’s a Zero One Australia as well), but I didn’t find an obvious candidate browsing thru results.

Bill has highlights of IWRG 10/06/11.

Lucha Libre Blog has a roundup of recent apuesta results.

I know there’s a lot of news today, but I don’t believe it gets bigger than the stunning return of El Aleman.

Figure the World Trios title match they’re setting up in the opener for the next Arena Mexico show.

First Stuka DF match without Namajague in about a month. Could mean something, could not.

When Starman had his problem with Magnus a couple weeks ago, he blamed all the Gen11 guys. He’s not teaming with Mangus this time, but he is teaming with 2 Gen 11 guys. Rough start to the card.

4) Diamante Azul & Máscara Dorada vs Felino & Mr. Niebla
5) La Sombra vs Mephisto [NWA MIDDLE]
La Sombra is champ. First defense.

Sombra should keep his title here.

Rayo de Plata is a new name here, but there are 2 or 3 Rayo de Platas running around.

  1. Mark Hussein aka Big Huss aka Mad Turk Hussein could fit. He is from Australia, he has the size and stature, he worked for Hustle and Zero-One in Japan, and even his voice could fit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5an1Dj47NCg#t=80s (he speaks at minute 2:35). And there is a blogspot page (beefcakesofwrestling.blogspot.de) with a october 2011 post that says that he wants to wrestle in Mexico.

  2. Alfredo points out that the skin tone and hair line do not exactly match up, while Los Colisenos argues this guy is way better of a flyer than seen in the (one) match(es) Thunder has had.

    I’m not sure what the situation is, but I’m concerned when the argument is “oh, no, this new guy isn’t really THAT good”.

  3. While skin tone is mentioned, it’s interesting how in CMLL, they have a history of bringing in white guys who don’t do the race-baiting. Thunder won’t. Strongman. Corleone. Steel. Vampiro.

    AAA seems to like the race-baiting taco flinging “indians” angle. CMLL seems to think white and muscles sells. Makes sense. William Levy is a huge tv star because of the combo.
