Mr. Niebla says everyone thinks he’s the Arena Mexico Clown, but he’s been wrestling for 21 years and knows what he’s doing, and showed Volador. Mr. Niebla thinks Volador is coming along good but he’s better. Niebla also says he has no interest in turning tecnico and if Volador wants to turn this to an all out war, Volador should go back to being tencioc.
Enrique Yniesta, who has an interview with Dorian Roldan in the upcoming Box Y Lucha, says Dorian suggested Perro Aguayo, Abismo Negro, Cien Caras, and Mascara Ano 2000 as possible candidates for the AAA Hall of Fame. AAA previously announced three people would go in last year. I still think they put Abismo Negro in the Hall of Fame already in 2010, but putting him in again is no problem. More likely, since it’s 3, I bet the original idea was to do all three Dinamitas – Cien Caras, Mascara Ano 2000, and Universo 2000 – who could get involved in the main event. Getting them all there may be the tougher part, but Perro and Abismo would be a fine selections.
The press conference for the Copa de Siempre royal rumble was yesterday. The list of names they announced:
Tinieblas Jr., Dr. Karonte, Huracán Ramírez, Huracán Ramírez Jr., Jaque Mate, Heddi Karaoui, Pirata Morgan, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, El Corsario, Hijo del Espanto II, Fishman Jr., Voltan, Hijo de Estrella Blanca, Estrella Blanca Jr., Estrella Blanca II, Rolling Boy Jr., Imua-Koa, Dr. Cerebro, Oriental, Relámpago de Plata, Atila, Ultraman, Hijo de Ultraman, Hijo de Anibal, Águila Solitaria, Águila Solitaria Jr., Axel, Alebrije (I, w/Cuije), Marabunta, Kung Fu Jr., Súper Porky, Angelikal, Ehecatl, Yakuza, El Seminarista, Rocky Santana, Epidemia, Guerrero del Bronx Jr., Scorpio Jr. (listed as with Trolly?), Bull Power, Súper Caló Jr., Terry 2000, Juan el Ranchero, Marabunta Jr., Chucho el Roto, Kid Medrano, Holkan and a luchador surprise.
The press release says 50 out of 150 people who were interested. That list is 46 plus the surprise. The list lucas posted in the comments adds Skayde, Black Terry, Campeones, Sepulcro Jr., Hermano Muerte II Jr., Hijo de Espectro de Ultratumba for 53. Hijo de Climax said he was in this, and I’m sure there are more (and some of these won’t be there.) There will be a lot of people, they have a match, an old guy will come in late and win.
