Blue Demon will be off tonight’s Rey de Reyes show, with the same unspecified family personal issues which kept him off the WWL shows last week. Demon revealed this in Saturday’s Metro newspaper. AAA hasn’t acknowledged this or explained what they’ll do with the Chessman versus Demon match for the Latin American Championship tonight.
(I guess this means Octagon is not a reliable source of scoops?)
Juventud Guerrera is also off the show; he says the doctors will not permit him to wrestle. AAA hasn’t mentioned this situation either. That makes the cage match 4 on 3, unless they just pull Fenix out of it to do a singles match with Chessman instead.
In other absence news, Mistico la Nueva Era shot down Sin Cara’s (deleted) Twitter message. Sin Cara had briefly alleged Mistico was pulled from the show for being drunk. Mistico responded on Facebook that he was never programmed for the show, the poster on the internet was an error, he doesn’t like the taste of alcohol
and he was actually on the beach until 9:15. That’s a pretty good Friday night. and something I translated wrong .
I didn’t believe Sin Cara’s story, but I don’t actually believe this one either. “Typo on the internet” for a full week seems highly unlikely in general. Mistico wasn’t just on the poster, he was also on the preview of the card CMLL press department sent out and they always quietly sneak in any changes to card on that. (I’d guess the posters around the arena had Mistico listed, but I don’t know that for sure.) Mistico was scheduled for this card, he was pulled at some point, we may never know when/why.
