Ovaciones notes this is a main event to build to next week’s show and nothing else. Notimex says the same thing. I think many will end up agreeing and this one’s going to struggle to draw. In ESTO, Hector is surprised he’s teaming so well with Mistico.
(Reforma via Jazzo) Marco talks about the disbanding of the High Society. With Rey a rudo and Shocker MIA, it’s officially gone, and Marco thinks it never worked because the two foreigners worked together and Rey & Shocker teamed up some, but they didn’t come together as a unit. I’m still championing a new High Society of Marco, Alex and Valiente.
Meanwhile, Ultimo Guerrero is not happy with the former Pandilla using “Guerreros del Desierto or Guerrero Tuareg” as a name. Neither am I, since I could swear they were calling themselves Rebeldes Tuareg and everyone forgot. Ultimo is looking for more support from CMLL: he wants to talk to people in charge about getting Toscano back in the fold, giving Olimpico & Sangre something to do, and finding out why he and Atlantis aren’t getting their rematch. UG figures CMLL will be holding a decision match for the CMLL Trios titles soon too, and wants the Guerreros in on that.
ESTO’s article on the Lucha Libre Expo mentions NWA Mexico as one of the participating promotions. So at some point, they will be promoting something. The “Expo” wrestler is a 10 year IWRG veteran getting (yet another) new gimmick. The expo has a website @ http://www.remexexpos.com/lucha/.
Ovaciones says Hijo del Santo was honored by the Huixquilucan, Mexico State govenrment for 25 years of lucha libre.
Jack Evans was on Figure Four Daily earlier this week, and talked a bit about AAA
– He starts on April 5 (“thru something”), and he believes he’s wrestling in Mexico City
– Jack being announced and replaced on Verano de Escandalo was his fault; he got bookings for ROH and AAA on the same day, and neglected to tell either side. AAA and ROH talked it out themselves and there’s no problem there.
– he’s super excited to wrestle in Mexico, because he thinks he might learn the style Skayde and Pentagon Black use. From AAA.
Slightly odd teams, but okay.
Argentina’s Pagina 12 writes about the life of Italian Jose Ricardo Gattone, who wrestled in Argentina as Gran Gattoni and then traveled to the US to wrestle in the AWA as Baron Gattoni. A book was recently released about him in Argentina.

This is Vaquero’s debut in GDL, I think. I wonder if there’s something coming up with him, because it’s unusual for him to wrestle outside of DF.
