AAA officially announced Alberto el Patron would appear on Wednesday’s TV taping, which will now honor Perro Aguayo Jr. Rey Misterio Jr. has said to be appearing previously. Update: an article on the press conference to announce the show says Alberto vs Cage will now take place in San Luis Potosi. Mesias will take Perro Aguayo Jr.’s spot in the main event; he figured to be the mystery guy in the main event, and they’re not saying who the mystery guy is. They also did not officially announce Rey Jr. as appearing on the show, but hinted he would be there.
El Sol del Toluca talks to Kahoz, who was in the ring with Oro when he suffered his fatal injury. Kahoz is Mephisto’s father, though that’s not mentioned here. They do say he’s driving a taxi now. Kahoz says Oro’s death was the beginning of the end of his career, as it hurt him mentally badly. He complains about luchador being under paid – even telling a story about being brought to Veracruz for a show and the luchadors going fishing since they had no breakfast – but also said he’d do it again.
Another version of the previous interview with Dr. Zavaleta of the Mexico City commission mentions Perro Aguayo Jr.’s license test specifically includes a EKG and laboratory tests. Those would check for heart conditions but not necessarily neck damage.
