This picture is designed to distract you long enough to disguise no update being up. It’s not that I’m passing on the day because Ovaciones did, it’s that I’m still insanely busy. I’ll attempt at something later tonight, providing I do not die in the blizzard passing thru the area.
I like the oval design on the belt; when I was in a spell of using belt photos for a Box Y Lucha thread in some title histories over at the wiki, I saw them for the first time and thought they looked sharp. In fact, till I remember most of the belts have apparently been changed to a new design at some point, I thought about the oval belts and the oval logo, and thought I should start nicknaming CMLL “the Oval” and see if it’ll catch out as a tongue in cheek nickname. It couldn’t be worse than Fred.
Anyway, I think the point is either “the truthfulness of their women’s wrestling push can be determined by their unwillingness to spend the $whatever to buy a new belt” or “holy carp, they just stuck the belt in a closet for a few years and dug it out when they felt like using again, like it’s a bowling ball or a sweater from an aunt.”
Not that my aunt makes be ugly sweaters. And yes, I know there’s far more interesting things than the belt in that picture, but I can’t semi-intelligently comment on the rest.
one attempt at news to salvage this: WWE.com has just announced Tajiri’s going to be leaving the company after next Monday. It sounds like it at least partially stems from a desire to live in Japan full time, but if he ever decides to come back to this continent again, a return stint in CMLL would be fun.
