- Copa Retro w/Rocky Santana, Terry 2000, Sepulturero, Robin Maravilla, Pequeno Yaqui, Sadico, Super Chavo, Danny Boy, Judas el Traidor
Hoy Los Angeles talks to Blue Demon Jr. about coming in for the FMLL show this weekend. He’s asked again about Blue Demon III, who he says will be his son. He’s been training for only three months, and believes he’ll maybe be ready in a year or a year and a half.
El Grafico has an article on the LLF promotion, who’s promoter says they have a lot of interest from women in coming in, but are never as able to bring in as many as they’d like.
Lost in Lucha writes about Blue Panther vs Super Astro from 1992.

Impossible is the reigning champion.
There’s usually a bit of a lead up to the Rey del Ring. It seems to have come with no warning this year. Same thing with that hair match; Gallo Frances had been feuding with Black Dragon instead until last week. Hijo del Olimpico is the former Exodia trying to make a return after seven years.

No Rush/Kraneo yet. Lots of rudos though, including the current national trios champs against the team they beat.
“King Roker” is probably local indie rudo King Rocker. He hasn’t had any matches in about four months; maybe he’s been off due to training for this opportunity.
