This was also a show. I was surprised to find out they still do the fan (or ‘fan’) interviews they were doing on the Terra broadcast, even though they don’t air anywhere.

Rush’s cut took 15 stitches to close, according to Maximo.

AAA officially announced Heroes Inmortales will be on iPPV. Show starts at 6pm CT next Sunday. It’s listed $19 or 190 Mexican Pesos, but I don’t see a way to actually pay via pesos (which is about $8 USD cheaper than the US option, kind of crazy.) When I try to sign up, it always pushes me towards the paypal/$19USD option – maybe it’s geographically based?

I would’ve thought AAA would come back with something a bit more enticing to get people take a chance at them, but they’re basically asking iPPV people to pay the same amount and hope everything goes right. The card is much better than TripleMania, but the casual fan who might take a chance on a show doesn’t really know that (and they’re not going to find out from the website that hasn’t been updated since August, or the other website that hasn’t been updated since August.) And it’s been announced all of a one week ahead of time, only on their Twitter account, and it’s following another lucha iPPV which was turned out to be available for free if you didn’t buy it. There’s many reasons not to buy this show, and AAA’s not done much of a job of giving people reasons to actually purchase it. This is strictly going to be bought by the hardcores. I’m going to pay and I think it’d be worth the money even if I wasn’t writing about it, but I think I’m going to be pretty lonely.

hot scoop: Maximo’s tiny dog is actually Aly’s dog Chanel. (Also, Sombra’s going back to Japan in November for the tour he always goes for – the bigger news is he’s not going until then.)

DTU acknowledged the Alto Impacto title change in Germany. Jonathan Gresham has already earned a title rematch.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.
