Since the DVDVR has a link here, I probably should point to DVDVR I was reading to kill time today – #117, an all Lucha review. Off the top of my head, the thing that struck me most was the inclusion of Puerto Rician wrestling. I’m sure the orgins are the similiar and all, but at least in wrestling, Puerto Rician’s always read a lot more like the US than Mexico.

FWIW, if you know more good lucha resources that I haven’t linked to yet over there, just send a link.

I’ve got a longer bored rambling post, but it’s trapped on a computer that is not this one – maybe tommorow.

CMLL NEWS
– Rayo Jr. returns at the end of the month. He’s promised not to leave this time till he gets Unvierso’s mask. Perhaps we should start up a collection plate to buy him one.
– Zumbido (who, as the news notes, is offically out of Guapo U) recently took the hair of one local wrestler Boby Jack. He promises Marvin and Rivera will be next.
– We should start a list of all “X wants to take Y’s hair/mask” from this column. It’d be long.
– FdT returns on 2/21 – Infernales are first in line for a Mexican Trios Title rematch, though Damien and Halloween would like another shot at those tag team belts.
