There are rumors going the lucha boards around that Shocker’s jumped back to CMLL to redebut on 09/17. I have less than full confidence of this.
Actually, the better random lucha boast post is the one where someone did one of those Chuck Norris bits, but replaced Chuck Norris with Universo 2000. GENIUS.

If you’re in Hidalgo, Texas this Saturday, Konnan’s signing autographs. Don’t tell him the article says he’s a “former” lucha libre star. (Thanks to mikeinformer)

The only thing that matters here is the cibernetico. (Though it’s worth noting we haven’t gotten the promised annoucement about the Anniversary card.) I strenously disagree with Robert’s notion earlier this week that we’re about to get a Negro Casas power play here. It’s totally going to be Mistico as the winner, and if it’s not, I’ll plug Robert’s new blog every day for a week.
Speaking of: Robert Bihari is reposting his reviews over at luchareviews.blogspot.com. Right now, it’s only stuff you’ve may seen elsewhere, but arranged a bit nicer. More stuff is on the way.
Backtracking for a second, this is what seems set up for the month
09/01: Leyenda de Plata, Block B
09/08: Leyenda de Plata final (which means if the final leads directly to the Anniversay main event, they can’t actually announce it till here)
09/15: buffer week to build Anniversary match (though it’s mexican independence Eve, so I’m suspecting a title match somewhere this weekend)
09/22: Anniversary main event
09/29: first appearance of guy who lost his mask at the anniversary show
