Again, they’re back to the blue mats on Wednesday. They must only be sponsored on Sundays.
Furia de Titanes and Medio Tempo have articles on DTU’s press conference. Their tour is five shows, 05/16 (Arena Queretaro), 05/17 (Arena Roberto Paz in Guadalajara), 05/20 (Arena Aficion in Pachuca), 05/24 (Deportivo Pavon, DF) and 05/25 (Poza Rica.) No home show in Tulancingo. All the lineups are as announced – except at the press conference, Flamita announced his 05/20 match with Shane Strickland, Kaleth and Drastick Boy will now be for the Open the Brave Gate championship. (I guess Drastick Boy gave away the surprise.) DTU’s also pushing having different divisions strongly: Extermos, Alto Impacto, DTU Chicas (previously Femenil) are familiar, Nexo is for tag teams and Suicida is for flyers where no objects can be used and wins must only be by pinfall.
This week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter believes the mystery people on the upcoming AAA tapings are Averno and Bengala (not Sin Cara.)
Rob has highlights of late May to early June 2001.
Tercera Caida has Princesa Sugehit as guest. They’ve also posted a nine minute after the show video.
CMLL has a story on Mascara Dorada’s next trip to NJPW, announced for May 22 to June 8th. A Mascara Dorada card is being added to the NJPW playing card game.
Metalico says he’s not a rudo, he’s just moody. My gosh, I’m actually Metalico. Metalico insists Oro Jr. will not make a name off of him and so has no interested in the mask match right now. Note they still think the injury happened in Copa Junior.
Informador has an article about the lucha libre bus that takes people to Arena Coliseo Guadalajara. This one predates the Mexico City TuriLuchas program, and includes a free beer with the package. It’s a bar who organizes it.
R de Rudo has video a four way tag match from the WMC show.
Furia de Titanes interviews Halcon 2000, who’s the Humo Lightweight champion. Humo seems to be using a lot of the people who were working for IWL, even the same guy who was making the posters and IWL hasn’t been heard from quite a while (one show announced for March, have to go back to December before that.) I’m not sure if IWL is gone, but it seems like it’s been replaced.
