I got my Atlantis hat from them. Tried to get a Dr Wagner jr one, but they were sold out and hadn't updated the site. Too bad I'm not into El Generico, the hat they've got for him looks good.

I mostly get mine from ebay.

This was the first time I'd seen an LA Park one. Only seen a couple of La Parka (AAA) style ones up until then.

I'm a little surprised Penta isn't selling some 0M version hats himself.

Cubsfan says AAA is livestreaming tonight's show for charity stuff, maybe more amazing shit AAA English commentary

>AAA has it’s annual Ring and Rock Stars TV taping from Hard Rock Riviera Maya tonight. They’ve decided to air it live on Twitch to raise money for earthquake victims. All the revenue from the show (probably the ads, not sure if they’ll have the bit tips set up) will be donated to Save the Children Mexico. The show is scheduled to start at 8pm CT (but it’s a TV taping, so probably later than that.) They have it as two hours long but I figure it’ll be longer. I am told the plan is for the event to stream both on AAA’s main channel and English language channel, and there’s an effort to find some English language announcers to call the show for that feed. (I do not know who they will be and it may not happen since this is all coming together last minute.)

ehhh... this is a different situation.

The newest news is: they have not gotten funding for season 4. Season 3 is ending in a matter of weeks. Season 3 wrapped filming in late 2015/early 2016? I don't know the actual date, but its been at least a full calendar year since the talent was booked to work a LU taping.

They made it to 100 episodes which makes them eligible to sell the show in syndication. Meltz has reported that that's been the only real feasible goal they achieved. They can sell the show in reruns and make money back that way.

Producers put up the money to tape seasons 2 & 3 themselves, but it seemed like that was it. They weren't going to put up anymore of their own money and if it was going to continue, they never would outside sources of revenue to fund it ... and those never came in.

Seasons 1 and 2 did finally get picked up on Netflix (but only the US, Canada and Latin America). And the eps are also on iTunes.
They lost their deal for the Fight Network in Canada I believe, but still air on a smaller spanish-language channel up north.
They lost their TV deal in Mexico after season 1 and that was a big boost for them.
They did get deals to air in Germany, Japan & India-- and Meltz has said that technically they are now the 3rd most widely available wrestling show in the world, behind only Impact and WWE.

The merch deals never came in.
The live events never came outside of a SXSW show and a few Cricket Wireless sponsored events at Southwest-based state fairs.
Rey Mysterio is gone and a lot of the pop culture opportunities he was sold on -- like a potential movie -- never came to fruition.
Prince Puma has been actively throwing a tantrum for months that he wants out of his contract, which operates like this: 90 day no-compete after the final episode airs.
Matanza is tweeting that the rest of his year is open for indie bookings, so he's not being contacted by producers about new tapings.
The AAA talents that didn't quit to join Konnan in The Crash -- like Johnny Mundo, Fantasma, Texano and Drago -- seem to be finding a lifeboat in the Impact crossover.
This upcoming Lucha World Cup in Japan is the only new thing with LU on the horizon, but it's mostly a chance for AAA talents to work under their LU gimmicks (LU does air on Samurai TV I think so there's more marketability with those gimmicks)

The American indie guys -- like Cage, Matt Cross and Joey Ryan -- will probably be looking for a new gig soon, most likely Impact or ROH. Ricochet is basically signed, sealed and delivered for NXT as soon as possible.

As far as business goes, Lucha Underground and AAA are separate entities. Non-AAA investors likely insisted on a non-compete agreement. Sure, at this point it's reasonable to think that any exposure is good exposure, but back then there was no way to know how big LU would become, so it made sense to include some provision to prevent AAA from savaging Lucha Underground business in the US.

In my opinion, Lucha Underground could've made a lot more money if they hadn't tied themselves to a dying medium, and even worse a channel that doesn't reach 90% of potential viewers. But wrestling has been all about TV for so long that most people can't see beyond TV, even as it's not the magical cornucopia of unlimited money anymore.

They did get on iTunes though, and would probably have done a lot better numbers there if there wasn't a free alternative on TV. If it's possible to watch a product on TV for free - even though it doesn't reach most viewers- that's what customers conceptualize it as, so there's less incentive to pay for it.

Now obviously El Rey put down a fair bit of cash for the show, so it may have been impractical to go purely online, but I'm still not convinced of TV as a sustainable source of revenue for non-WWE wrestling in 2017.

>The bracket was announced for the 10/10 Lucha World Cup:

*Quarterfinal 1: Pagano & Psycho Clown vs Cody Hall & Quiet Storm
*Quarterfinal 2: Mil Muertes & Vampiro vs Nosawa & Kendo Kashin
*Quarterfinal 3: Marty Martinez & Son of Havoc vs Taiji Ishimori & Hi69
*Quarterfinal 4: DJZ & Andrew Everett vs Aerostar & Drago
*Semifinal 1: Quarterfinal 1 vs Quarterfinal 2
*Semifinal 2: Quarterfinal 3 vs Quarterfinal 4
*Final:
(not sure if they’re doing a Third Place game)

>They’ve also changed the tiebreaker format. These matches still have a 10 minute time limit. If there’s no winner, then each side picks one person for a 3 minute tie breaker match. (That’s changed from 5.) If there’s still no winner, then the other two people wrestle. This part is how they’ve done it the last two years, with the idea that they would cycle back around to first group of people if there was still no decision. It never got that far, but that was the idea. This time, if there’s still no finish, they’ll have a judging panel decide the winner. The judges are Dorian Roldan, Gran Hamada, Tatsumi Fujinami, Tsutomu Shimizu (Dr. Lucha) and Scott D’Amore.

>Pagano & Psycho Clown are the favorites. Taiji Ishimori & Hi69 is the team that has the best chance of upsetting as the home country team. Ishimori, Psycho and Mil Muertes (under two names) are the only people to be in all three of these matches. Mexico & USA have won, but Japan has never reached the final.

>Again, this show will air on SamuraiTV later in October, and probably will air on AAA TV in early November. There was a belief this show would air live on Twitch at one point, but there’s been no official mention of that and it now seems unlikely to occur. There will be a press conference to introduce the Mexican contingent on Saturday.

There's also a Challonge bracket for the tournament if anyone wants to pick - http://challonge.com/luchaworldcup2017/predictions

Here's the results from The Crash's TV pilot - http://thecubsfan.com/cmll/events/shows/00067000/00067977.php

>The show was taped as a TV pilot, probably for the Azteca Mexico network. There were extra cameras set up to shoot the show that hadn’t been there past shows. Hugo [Savinovich] might fit into that, since he’d be an obvious pick to be an announcer. There’s no info on when/if it would air.

>Also during the show, they announced an upcoming retirement match but people on social media were confused as to who it was retiring. The Crash’s Facebook recap doesn’t mention it all, Jorge CRR thought it was a Nicho retirement, and 126F thought it was a Konnan retirement match. That last choice would make the most sense, and would be a decent idea to get attention for a TV show early on. No date was announced, but they did say it would be Konnan, Nicho and Damian against Pierroth and others (maybe the other Ingobernables.)

>126f suggested the boos in Fenix/Flamita match was because the match was good but not as great as hope (lacking some intensity) and the fans were tired by that point and wanted to see the main event. The usual late Tijuana start time is a bigger obstacle on a Thursday than a Saturday.

And compare that to Star Battle last year, which drew 1619. Also here's the results from the show the day before at Shinkiba 1st Ring, which drew 290:

1) Aerostar b Marty The Moth
2) Angélico & Son of Havoc b Masamune & Taiji Ishimori
Son of Havoc pinned Masamune
3) Pagano & Psycho Clown b Minoru Fujita & Nosawa
4) King Cuerno b Drago
5) Vampiro NC Mil Muertes
Nosawa ran in and attacked both men, leading to no finish.

While the full results for the Lucha Libre World Cup aren't out as far as I can tell, the winners of the tournament are Psycho Clown and Pagano

Here's the full results from the Lucha Libre World Cup:

Pagano & Psycho Clown b Cody Hall & Quiet Storm [Lucha World Cup, quarterfinal] 9:08. Psycho Clown beat Cody Hall via diving headbutt.

Mil Muertes & Vampiro DQ Kendo Kashin & Nosawa [Lucha World Cup, quarterfinal] 6:09. Nosawa framed Vampiro for hitting Piero with a chair. Vampiro attacked the referee and chokeslammed a (AJPW???) trainee.

Marty Martinez & Son of Havoc b Hi69 & Taiji Ishimori [Lucha World Cup, quarterfinal] 8:11. Ishimori blocked a SSP to set up the win. Son of Havoc won best dive in this match.

Andrew Everett & DJZ b Aerostar & Drago [Lucha World Cup, quarterfinal] 7:51. Everett beat Drago with a 630 splash. This match was awarded best match.

Heidi Katrina, Recca, Taylor Adams b Danny Jones, Diego, Sumire Natasu 13:42. Katrina beat Natasu.

Pagano & Psycho Clown b Kendo Kashin & Nosawa [Lucha World Cup, semifinal] 5:14. Referee was taken out and Nosawa fouled Psycho. Vampiro inteferred to hit Nosawa with a chair to set up Psycho’s win.

Hi69 & Taiji Ishimori b Andrew Everett & DJZ [Lucha World Cup, semifinal] Went to a time limit (10 minute.) Ishmori defeated DJZ in 2:11 of the overtime period.

King Cuerno b Angélico 11:08 via Thrill of the Hunt.

Pagano & Psycho Clown b Hi69 & Taiji Ishimori [Lucha World Cup, final] 6:38. Psycho beat Hi69 with a Canadian Destroyer. Taiji Ishimori, who has been in the tournament every year, won the best wrestler award.

>This will air on SamuraiTV next Tuesday and should turn up on AAA TV sometime in the next month.

>It appeared AAA used the same belt as last year since the logos on it were for that year’s teams (TNA, the women’s groups.) Mexican boxing champion Tomoki Kameda presented it to Pagano & Psycho. AAA posted a video of them celebrating their win.

Taiji Ishimori said he was surprised to win the best wrestler award, though disappointed to again get so close to winning the competition and coming up short. Ishimori went out in round 1 in 2015, the semifinals last year, and the finals this year. Maybe next year is his year. DJZ/Everrett vs Aerostar/Drago was the best match, and Son of Havoc won an award that’s usually best dive but appears to be Best High Flyer this time around.

>That reported attendance is about half what AAA did last year for their Star Battle show. The photos make it look worse; the bleachers are not even one-third full. Maybe the other side was more full. Last year’s show had Rey Mysterio and Pentagon Jr., this year’s did not because of the choices AAA made. If you want a much more harsh way of looking at it, it’s minuscule to what AAA’s been able to draw with this event in Mexico. This is a sponsor (Victoria) funded event and it seems like they ran in Japan because that’s what the sponsor wanted. If they’re happy wiht the turnout, then there’s no problem with it.

from the dirtsheet thread
>The reason AAA lost its television in the U.K. on Frontrunner was due to an issue with a show broadcast on 7/5. The U.K. has much stricter rules on what can air on television prior to 9 p.m.. Frontrunner TV was airing AAA at 7 p.m. and the show had a match with Pagano vs. Psycho Clown, which, according to a report published by OFCOM (the country’s television regulatory board) regarding complaints and sanctions in recent months, listed the show. Ofcom reported the show contained several instances of violence, blood and the use of weapons. Listed were Pagano tying barbed wire around Psycho’s face after his mask was ripped, Pagano hitting him in the head, already bloodied, with a chair, Pagano wrapping barbed wire around Psycho’s arm and two chair shots to the barbed wire digging it into the arm and showing close up footage of the bloodied up arm. Psycho also used the barbed wire around his arm to clothesline Pagano in the face. Psycho also used a fork into the arm leading to Pagano being covered with blood. Psycho then wrapped his body with barbed wire and splashed onto Pagano. They also both took a bump through a table covered in thumbtacks. Pagano also took a bump into a table that was on fire. Frontrunner TV acknowledged that the show should not have aired in that time slot, and that they were no longer airing the program.

>With LU soon on the way out, I bit the bullet and finally added Guadalajara to the listings. Locally, it airs first on Thursdays nights, but that channel doesn’t have a YouTube feed. The Saturday 10pm airing is airing on this feed, though my sense is it’s a screw up and supposed to blacked out from the internet. Televisa attempts to block all which aren’t locally produced by the station from airing on YouTube, to avoid getting in trouble with YouTube (for copyright violations) or the TV shows themselves (who may have not given them the right to air it on the internet.) I don’t think CMLL Guadalajara or AAA really cares if they air, but it seems to be a blanket policy. It’s also a poorly administered policy, with those shows and others slipping thru when the schedule isn’t lined up correctly.

So Volador Jr. appeared for The Crash to attack Penta 0M. Right now I'm wondering whether it's just a way for Volador to get LA Park into the promotion, but I couldn't be happier if he fucked off forever and had his 30% matches in Tijuana instead of Arena Mexico.

Side note, the Rey del Inframundo match was a lot of fun, which isn't that surprising when you have Hechicero and the new Dinamitas teaming up.

Here's some CMLL news:

>Shocker was brought to the police station for questioning Wednesday night in Mexico City. He’s been accused of violence towards a sex worker, and for destroying the hotel room he was staying. The hotel has said Shocker caused 30,000 pesos (~$1,500 of damage.) Shocker’s not been officially charged yet; Mexican police can hold him for 48 while they investigate and that’s where they’re at now. A brief story about the arrest is on pretty much every news site in Mexico, as much for Shocker’s brief reality appearances as his wrestling.

>Shocker was currently listed as working on Friday & Saturday’s CMLL show. I’d imagine he’ll be removed, but that’s no guarantee. He’s one half of the CMLL Tag Team champions, a reign that’s seemingly only gone on this long because one or the other has gotten injured and CMLL hasn’t wanted to just strip them of the titles. (CMLL keeps trying to set up Stuka & Diamante Azul to at least challenge for the tag titles, maybe even win them, since September, but things keep happening.) Shocker’s publicly talked about his issues with alcoholism and appeared to have quietly been suspended by CMLL for showing up in no condition to perform in the past. CMLL sees value in Shocker because he’s a very recognizable star, overlooking his dramatic decline in the ring after many knee injuries. I would not be surprised if they overlooked this as well.

>CMLL announced a Legend’s show for next Friday. No matches are yet announced, but the named participants include Solar, Mano Negra, Super Astro, Rayo de Jalisco Jr., Cien Caras, Super Pinocho, Super Muneco, Satanico, Octagon, Canek, Fuerza Guerrera, Dos Caras, Black Terry and Negro Navarro. That last name is interesting, because Negro Navarro hasn’t been in a match since the end of July. He seconded Zeuxis, but hadn’t been seen much. It’s believed he suffered a heart attack, and this would probably be his first match back.

>Atlantis will not be back in time. He does not yet have a return date. (I think I had it backwards on audio?) Atlantis was honored at Hipodromo de las Americas, a horse racing track.

>CMLL also announced the bodybuilding contest will take place on 11/29, hyping the participation of Astral, Drone, Esfinge and Dalys.

More on Shocker's arrest and The Crash canceling a show on short notice:

>Shocker was let out of jail after three hours after agreeing to pay 20,000 to a hotel for damages to the room he was staying in. Friends of Shocker say this was an extortion attempt all along and the violence to the sex worker was an attempt to create leverage. Others aren’t sure, and everyone agrees that is he’s dealing with a lot of issues. The women disappearing along the way can be read either as part of the extortion plot or a sex worker deciding it’s not in her best interest to work with the legal system. Shocker is based in Mexico City, so him needing a hotel room for there night says there’s a least something more to this story.

>CMLL appears to have taken no action. I do not believe Shocker was suspended Friday night; I didn’t get the full story, but my impression is Shocker just wasn’t there and CMLL scrambled to find someone as as last second replacement. (That’s why the family vs family rule was broken.) I assume that’s the same thing that happened with his missed show on Puebla. It may mean CMLL believes the story was Shocker being extorted, because everyone had to know about it on Friday. He was listed on Tuesday’s show, though that might have happened by the time you read this.

>Brazo de Plata did an interview talking about Shocker’s issues with alcohol, but also saying hes’ never seen Shocker wrestle drunk. This is treated as a big revelation, but Shocker’s talked about his issues over the years, and it came up in the El Luchador TV series.

>The Crash show on Thursday in Metepec was canceled. It was canceled about an hour after the show was supposed to start, at 8pm. Our group got there around 7:40, with people waiting in line and getting restless. They were doing the meet & greet, though the article notes it was about an hour and half late. Doors opened around 8:30. The show still hadn’t started by 9, but it just seemed like a normal late lucha/Mexico thing. It wasn’t until The Crash personal took their canvas off the ring that it was clear the show was in trouble. The wrestler bus was parked next to the arena at one moment, then gone the next. There was eventually a very brief announcement by, I think, a local lucha commissioner that the show was canceled but most of the people had started filing out by then.

>The Crash quickly put out a statement explaining they were working with a local promoter for this show (the same as is the case for all the non-Tijuana shows), the local promoter did not make good on what he said he would pay The Crash, and the Crash decided to leave. Attendance didn’t seem bad – in the same range of about 800 as in Queretaro a couple nights prior – though the local promotion had said they were hoping to have 3000 for the show and perhaps needed that many to pay the bill. (Tickets were more expensive in Metepec, though costs were definitely higher too – this show was supposed to be Rey Mysterio’s first match in the city in years.)

>The Crash listed Emmanuel Jacome as the local promoter. That’s the given name of luchador Astro (formerly Astro Rey Jr.), who deleted his Facebook account as the show was going. He did not appear to be on the scene when everything went down, and was not the guy at the ticket booth surrounded by angry fans after the show didn’t take place. We were told that situation turned violent sometime after we left, but can’t confirm it. Everyone was supposed to get refunds but it definitely didn’t seem like that was possible that night.

>One positive note: we got to shake hands a person who was later explained to be former luchador Astro de Plata. Astro de Plata was a promising young luchador who briefly wrestled in AAA before suffering a severe neck/spine injury on an indie match which left him briefly paralyzed. He recovered, and came back for one very safe match earlier this year (against Astro, who he’s friends with but not related.) You wouldn’t have known he went thru all that seeing him at that show, he looked like a normal young man. The injury ended his wrestling career but doesn’t seem to have affected the rest of his life, thankfully.

First his restaurant and now this? What's going on with Alberto?

>The Alberto/FULL benefit show did not happen. Fans arrived at the building, Gran Teatro Moliere in Mexico City, to find government signs over the door, saying “activities have been suspended”. That’s the standard message when the Mexico government has closed a building for one reason or another, and not specific. The only statement from the building was a statement that the show was canceled and they’d offer refunds today. No one from the theater was present last night. Gran Teatro Moliere is normally a theater/music venue. The theory is they weren’t approved to host a wrestling event because of lack of security, but it sounds like different sides are giving different explanations and blaming each other.

>Alberto gave an emotional speech to the press, talking about the cancellation. His version is his people came to the building on Saturday, saw the suspended signs, but were assured by the people in charge that it was only a temporary thing. (In another version, Tinieblas says there was actually a show there on Sunday too.) They returned Tuesday to find that not the case. They tried contacted the local Delegacion Miguel Hidalgo government to see if things could be fixed at the last second and were told now. Alberto was angry at that, feeling he was defeated by the corruption that exists in Mexico and suggested he’d run the show in San Antonio where he would be free of those issues. Later, they indicated there would be an announcement Thursday about a new venue and a new date for the show. Alberto told a story about a child who was now an orphan that he met in a restaurant and promised that this show would help him pay for his college education. Alberto showed off special Under Armor t-shirts they had made to raise money at the show. Alberto posted a supportive note on Instagram that started with a quote but also included emojis.

>This goes down as another strange situation with Alberto. In the US, where his scandals have seemed to have more sticking power, people are going to see this as another weird Alberto story. In Mexico, Alberto’s image in Mexico is still strong and enough people have had issues with the government to believe they’re really at fault.

They're not taboo per se, but since more of female wrestler's appeal is tied up in how attractive they are, fewer luchadoras are willing to give up their hair. That's why you get stuff like Faby Apache losing her hair to Sexy Star and, instead of getting a full shave, having like three inches halfheartedly cut off. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w14k9dP7iJc

If you want to watch a really good female apuestas match, Faby vs Mari Apache is widely considered one of the best Triplemania matches period. Very bloody, very intense, and available in decent quality: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6utXpzzKFr0

what the fuck is wrong with him?
>KONNAN GONE FROM CRASH LUCHA LIBRE
>By Mike Johnson, PWnsider
>The Tijuana, Mexico-based Crash Lucha Libre promotion announced today that Konnan, who had been working as a booker and head of creative for the company, was gone from the company.

>We are told that Konnan was let go this past Thursday following a locker room meeting and the decision to announce it today was to not distract from the promotion's events over this past weekend in Mexico. Konnan had joined the promotion after he and AAA fell out of favor, sparking a lot of talent to move to Crash and leading the promotion to running more events outside of Tijuana on a regular basis.

>The promotion issued the following statement o PWInsider.com this morning after we requested comment in an attempt to confirm the story:

>The Crash Lucha Libre brand is known for the way we treat people and value each and every single person that works in this company. Bettering the economical and habitual needs. Showing the support for each element and giving opportunity to new talent.

>In this way, the value and professionalism shown between each of its partners.

>Not being able to comply to the Crash Lucha Libre code of ethic, is something that we do not tolerate in this company.

>With that being said, We not announce that Carlos Santiago Espada "Konnan", will no longer be working with The Crash.

>We thank him for the time and support and wish him the best in his future endeavors.

>We will be announcing the dates for 2018 with the best matches and our debut in the United States.

>We are told a Spanish-language version of the statement was issued to media in Mexico this morning as well.

>Politically, it should be interesting to see what this means for Crash Lucha Libre's working relationship with Impact Wrestling, especially since Konnan is a regular for Impact as part of the LAX faction.

>Konnan was recently announced as the head writer for the Aro Lucha promotion out of Nashville, TN, a position we are told Impact Wrestling has given him permission to pursue. One would have expected that Konnan would have been the conduit to bring Crash talents in for that group, which is taping a TV pilot this Sunday 12/10 in Nashville, TN. Whether this exit changes that remains to be seen as well.

>Crash Lucha Libre is slated to run New Orleans over Wrestlemania 34 weekend in April 2018 as part of Wrestlecon. It should be interesting to see how much of their plans going forward change with Konnan's dismissal.

>Konnan has not, as of yet, commented on his departure and was retweeting fans' comments about Crash's weekend events as if he was still associated with the company.

Here's more on Konnan leaving The Crash from cubsfan:

>Today’s Wrestling Observer Radio reports that, in addition to the Arolucha issue, the Crash lost trust in Konnan after he had a meeting with Dorian Roldan. Impact set up the meeting, to try to get the promotions working together probably so it would be easier for Impact to work with both of them, but the story is Konnan didn’t tell The Crash about it and they found out second hand. Dorian, thru Lucha Libre FMV, has been actively threatening lawsuits against Rey Fenix & Penta 0M and the people who create artwork for them, and there’s been no sign of that ceasing lately. It doesn’t look like they made any progress about getting all along.

>LA Park posted on Facebook that he heard the people of The Crash held a vote about letting Konnan stay or cutting him, and “everyone” but Rey Mysterio wanted Konnan to go. It’s unclear who would be in “everyone”. It’s unclear if LA Park is just telling a story here; for a long time he didn’t want any part of The Crash, then suddenly started showing up on shows the last month or so, and that’s probably when this situation started.

>The usual thing that happens in this situation is Mount Konnan erupts, and we all watch the explosion from a safe distance, dodging the fall out. This time, Konnan’s not said much. He’s replied to a few people on Twitter, pointing them to his podcast for more info. That’ll be out Thursday. He’s mostly looking forward, telling people he’ll work with them again. Maybe Konnan isn’t burning a bridge because he thinks it might still be repaired, maybe he’s being careful not to do anything that might endanger getting the guys he wants on the Arolucha show.

>Garza Jr., Damian 666 and Bestia 666 put out video statements saying they were sticking with The Crash even with Konnan leaving. There’s a statement attributed to Penta noting he and Fenix came to The Crash on their own (not via Konnan), and will continue to be independent. I can’t find where that originally comes from, but that matches what I’ve heard privately. Rey Mysterio is the other key person to hear from on this. I don’t see a comment from him, but there were photos of him with the new The Crash Heavyweight championship belt – a belt with his mask design alluded to in the center and photos of Perro Aguayo Jr. and Eddie Guerrero, so a title intended for him all along.

>Everyone’s being very clear that the The Crash WrestleCon show is still on – the promotion moved fast there to make sure that didn’t change, it’s part of their US plans – and the The Crash show at the ExpoLucha show is also still on. None of the wrestlers are being pulled from AroLucha on Sunday, and none of the The Crash lineups are changing.

>At this point, no one seems to have to choose between Konnan and The Crash. What we’ve learned about The Crash over the last two months is they can run more than a dozen shows in Tijuana a year, but they’re not strong enough in the rest of the country yet to run anything close to full time. There’s going to be plenty of dates for people to work both (and plenty more places), if both sides allow them.

I'm surprised that Konnan didn't tell The Crash beforehand about working for AroLucha because that is kind of a shady thing to do especially given The Crash's working relationship with Impact now in jeopardy because of this situation.

Given how LU has now given its wrestlers more leeway in being able to work for other companies that have television in the US and Canada like ROH and Impact do. I’m interested to see where the Lucha Bros. work for if they’re still under contract for next season unless they’re waiting to get out and try to go to WWE. I know there’s speculation that they might be the gaijins that Ricochet recommended to Dragon Gate to bring in but we’ll see.

So is there any difference between CMLL's 3 tiers of title or is it an entirely superficial way to get more belts on more peeps?
I've presumed the latter for years but keep finding snips of lore like the CMLL World titles officially being the biggest deal and the Mexican National titles only allowing Mexican challengers.

"CMLL & NWA world" titles are more prestigious than the other belts. "Mexican national" titles are the 2nd tier. In all honesty, belts mean little except for entry into that annual tournament they have with all the champions. There might be a reign here or there where there's a top guy with a belt (like when maximo sexy won), or there's a top feud for a belt, but by and large, you'll see apuesto matches headline over title matches, and titles regularly change hands at house shows.

The indies have a good amount of strong workers as well, with Ludark being the main standout due to her versatility and general lack of giving a fuck in deathmatches.

Speaking of, Ludark has a visa now, right? Why the fuck is nobody booking her in the states? Somebody should let Beyond or somebody know about her so we can get her vs Tremont and Gage and shit.

I knew that much, that's how I learned she had the visa. I just think she should be getting more bookings, at least in other Deathmatch promotions with more eyes on them. Now that I think about it, she'd be a perfect fit for Janela's next Spring Break show.

Seriously it sounds kinda fascinating. Any deets why he wasn't held to it? Or more pertinently: how there's no record of his name, birthplace etc. from the loss?

Alternatively, anybody got lore on his senpai Ultraman here? Specifically: if he worked himself 2 mask loss paydays. 'Cuz that's what it looks like:

Check the dates. These matches were less than a week apart in 1987. It's almost 800 mi from Tijuana to Juarez. It's totally feasible.


regarding starman...
>January 1, 2001, he became Ultraman Jr. again to lose his mask to Arkangel de la Muerte in a Japanese card co-promoted by Atsushi Onita. This mask loss was never acknowledged nor even mentioned in his home country.
He wasn't held to anything cause it was just a gimmick match in Japan. The Mexican commission had nothing to do with it.

It's Japan. It was the early 00s. To them, it's not a thing. They don't care. It wasn't fudged because it was never going to happen. The Mexican commission cares about this, but they had nothing to do with that match.

Different situation, since a) he started competing maskless and b) being a WWE employee had already given out all of those personal details, but I see your point. So you think he just took off the mask, covered his face & cheesed it? That'd makes sense. He'd dropped the Ultraman Jr gimmick by the original's request and, like you said, "became Ultraman Jr. again to lose his mask", so presumably it was just his way of giving that particular gimmick closure; not his entire masked career.

CMLL posted the lineup for their Three King's Day show, which is supposed to be a reprise of the best matches of 2017.

The main event definitely fits the description (it's definitely up there for my matches of the year), but I have to admit I'm less convinced of the rest of the lineup. However, it might be interesting to see what GG and Niebla Roja are able to come up with without the prestige of the anniversary show behind them, and it's always nice to see Virus booked for big dates. In my opinion, CMLL isn't doing enough to push the Munoz bros as heels, so it might have been a good idea to include them, but it's not like there's a ton of space at the top of Arena Mexico cards anyway.

The new Dinamitas are kind of stuck with ass opponents, but that's mostly due to Niebla Roja not being available for a tag match.

Here's some injury news to report:

>Pagano suffered a fractured rib in Torreon. It was a spot gone very wrong with Murder Clown, which they’re now turning into a storyline on Twitter. Pagano’s fractured rib turned out to be quite bad: AAA announced Pagano will be out three months. Pagano didn’t have a lot going on screen after the Mesias feud wrapped up but he was one of the busiest wrestlers on AAA live events thru the year and will be tough to replace. On the other hand, Pagano is known for his dangerous stunts and doesn’t always seem to be doing things in the safest way, so it’s a little surprising he made it this long without a serious injury. AAA doesn’t have a lot of top guys left healthy who would normally be thought of as full time main eventers – maybe Psycho, Texano, Fantasma and Parka – but they’ve already been offering main events with guys who don’t feel like main events and it doesn’t seem like local promoters have stopped using them. I would guess that Psycho Clown also going down any time soon would really hurt AAA, but they may just be able to sell AAA shows on being AAA at this point.

>On the positive note, Atlantis says he’s ready for Fantastica Mania. It does not appear he’ll wrestle in Mexico prior to that tour at this point. That was the same thing that happened with Mistico the year he came back from the motorcycle accident, and he looked far less than 100%. Hope it goes better with Atlantis.

>This wraps up the fourteen year of luchablog, with about ten years of daily updates. Thank you for reading.
>If you follow on Twitter too, thanks for putting up with my increasingly cranky and antagonistic posts. I’m aware it’s happening, it’s not a great look, but I can’t seem to stop myself. And thanks to people like Rob and Freddy and Jose and plenty of others for tolerating me personally when I’m being useless and won’t just eat the free post show tacos, and for pushing me to do things I’d never do on my own. What you get here doesn’t really give you a true idea of what kind of nonsense person I am in reality. I’m probably a bit over dramatic (and it’s about to get a lot worse), but there’s are people who went out of their way to make my life easier, and I’m not good at letting them know how much I appreciate it. I really do appreciate it.
>There are some things I have to struggle with on my own. With all respect to everyone else, I feel like luchablog is the best place site on Mexican wrestling that exists. I also feel like that means I’m a tiny spec, it’s not nearly enough, not good enough, that there should be some next level I should be getting that I have no idea how to even understand, let alone reach. I feel like I should be doing someTHING, be part of something more, but I don’t know if that more even exists, or if I really should be doing something less. And it’s entirely possible these are just issues with the rest of my life that are just bleeding into this.
>Lucha libre is a niche of a niche of a niche, so there’s only so much people will ever care, and lucha libre (and wrestling itself) often seems to repel people against caring. Maybe this is as far as it can be taken, and maybe I should learn to be more content with what I’ve accomplished and what I’m doing. There’s just this nagging part of me I can’t quiet, that says doing this as it is forever is not enough, that I wouldn’t accept the lack of growth in others and I shouldn’t accept it from me. I don’t know. If I had answers, I’d write them. This year, I’m certain I don’t have the answers.
>Here’s what I do know: I’ll be back tomorrow with a new update, and a recap if I have time for it. And the day after that, and for a long time to come. And I’m definitely not looking for people saying nice things about me in the comments or on Twitter. I appreciate any thoughts along those lines if when I refuse to acknowledge them, but I’m not looking for those with this. I think I need to work on trying some different things in 2018. If I do, and if they’re any good, save the praise for that.
>There’s is one actual announcement. I’m bringing back the Tapatia awards. I’m not going to mention it on Twitter until it’s ready to go, but voting will be open in the next couple of days and be open long enough to let you (or me, mostly me) finish catching up on 2018. They’re going to be stripped down, with less categories and less depth, because I don’t want it to be intimidating. Awards get attention, more attention for lucha libre is good, so this is one of those things I feel like something has to do. And I think that’s the thing you can continue to expect in 2018: if there’s something worth doing about lucha libre that no one else is doing, you can count on me throwing myself at it.
Guys how can we help cubsenpai make lucha great again?

Also here's the award vote:

realistically there's not a whole lot to do other than watch lucha and discuss it here and on other boards
when you see a show you like talk it up and provide links so others can see it
the great thing about lucha is how basically all of the modern product is on youtube, often legit-ish

Kemonito spots and various Tortugas can help to get people to notice that it exists, but I try to keep it vaguely appropriate to the conversation


like I'll bring up CMLL as an alternative for people transitioning from WWE because there's a lot who like Weekly Live Wrassle Shows, and CMLL can really help to shore up losing those if you drop WWE

I try to offer advice for people getting into lucha
stick with it, take time to get used to the different rhythm, like how you don't just jump from DBZ to Naruto to Bleach to Yu Yu Hakusho to Fist of the North Star, sure they're all shonen fight shows but they all pace their fights differently with their own unique traits, go for full weekly shows over individual matches so you get the full context of the matches

I try to toss the CMLL youtube shows on my taima channel but I don't always manage to
if that could get more reliable people doing it on the regular it wouldn't hurt

Yo, trying to fill out the awards form, but I (like every year) struggle with recalling the best matches beyond the Parejas Increibles finals. Anyone care to jog my memory as far as outstanding matches last year go?

Oh, and as far as the growth of lucha libre goes: I'm still not sue why all those free matches on Youtube aren't monetized properly. It can't be that hard legally, seeing as nobody takes intellectual property seriously in Mexico, and taking in fifty bucks for recording a show might incentivize people to throw up more footage in decent quality. Kind of what Black Terry does, except more current and less dependent on one person attending a specific show.

I agree, but at least when Mistico does it he does it immediately. Almost like, I dunno, this is a fight and your partner's in pain and there's a window of opportunity? The rudos are the only ones that come off looking stupid for trying to show off & failing spectacularly.
Then Cara started doing it instead and came off looking like the biggest twat of them all every single time. It's truly astounding how few fucks he gives about making anything look good. You know; the POINT of a tecnico?

Here's the full story about Matt Riddle double booking AAW and The Crash:

>The Crash runs it’s first Tijuana show of the year tonight in a few hours. The main event is scheduled to be Daga, Masada and Penta vs Bestia, Garza and Mr. 450. The semimain will now by Rey Horus (making his return to the promotion) versus Joey Janela (making his debut.) That was the Matt Riddle spot; The Crash finally announced Riddle as off the show Friday afternoon, posting the flight information and some Twitter DM conversations with Riddle taking the blame. Unlike you and me, The Crash’s Twitter DMs do not appear to include dates or times under the messages. Either The Crash uses a special version of Twitter not available to the rest of the world, or they took those items off to hide how long they’ve known about the cancellation.

>Here’s the thing: this didn’t start out as The Crash screwing up. The Crash totally legitimately booked Matt Riddle for this show. This was Matt Riddle double booking himself, as Matt Riddle has been known to do. My belief is Riddle wanted to go to Tijuana tonight and thought he could talk AAW out of letting him out of the 01/20 show, which is why he mentioned the show on Twitter. He could not, because it turned out AAW had planned on Riddle being the main event of their own show on that day. Riddle found this out, and didn’t immediately let The Crash know the bad news. (As best I can tell, he didn’t tell them until he asked.)

>The Crash’s problems came to light the moment AAW announced Riddle, but started from having a misguided view of their own importance. I write (and will continue to) write a lot about The Crash. I am one of the few people in the entire world writing much about The Crash. The promotion puts on good shows and draws a lot of fans to Tijuana and that actually really matter a whole lot in wrestling in 2018, as hard as it may to believe if you’re in Mexico. What matters for a wrestler is how much they’re getting paid, and their likelyhood to get paid more. I dunno what AAW & The Crash were offering Riddle for tonight, but I’m guessing AAW also previously agreed to bring in Riddle at least a half dozen dates in 2018. I’m 100% sure that working in front of an AAW (or any bigger US indie) crowd is also getting Riddle more dates because people who promoter and program other shows are 100% more likely to see Riddle on an AAW show than The Crash show. Running a show in front of 5,000 people is great and I wish everyone could do it, but the way you get people work in 2018 is to get them on (good quality) video so people elsehwere can see them, and then can book them elsewhere.

>The Crash (and every other Mexican indie) insistence on not taping their shows is making it less attractive for outsiders to want to work there. I doubt Riddle was working their even if they were live on Twitch – again, one booking versus a handful – but I’d suspect it makes a difference for a few. It’s probably costing The Crash money and I’m absolutely sure it’s costing the wrestlers work. Just to name a few, Arkangel Divino had a strong 2017 in the Crash, so did Black Danger, so did Bestia 666, so did Mr. 450 – and none of those guys are really getting booked elsewhere because of their work in The Crash because no one’s watching cellphone videos of matches besides me. Those same people are going to work WrestleMania weekend and – because a whole bunch of people who been able to easily see them might stumble upon them – they’re going to suddenly get a lot more inquiries. Visibility matters. The Crash is really visible to about 5,000 people but might as well be on the moon for the rest of the people. And same with most everyone else in Mexico.

>Anyway: The Crash assumed Riddle was coming because they’re The Crash, and hopefully this was a cup of cold water to the face waking them up to what being The Crash really means at this point. We’re about eighteen months into The Crash pinning all their hopes on a TV deal which is clearly not anywhere close to happening, so I’m not expecting this to be the wake up call. Still, there’s definitely an opening in the Mexican indie wrestling market for someone to promote like an adult.

I am going to post this in two threads because I also love my lucha brothers here.

Up first, this Mega has 52 Santo films on it, all are subbed, with Santo in the Wax Museum and Santo vs. the Vampire Women also being dual audio with English dub tracks.

https://mega.nz/#F!kBpRGRSS!-qvllYVrFQaHj6WhsoeVsw

>Of note, I am missing Santo contra la magia negra (Santo vs. Black Magic, 1972) and Blue Demon contra el poder satánico (Blue Demon vs. Satanic Power, 1964) in subbed form. I am also missing the English dubs that were produced for Santo contra los zombis (Santo vs. the Zombies, 1961) a.k.a. Invasion of the Zombies and Santo contra el doctor Muerte (Santo vs. Dr. Death, 1973) a.k.a. Santo Strikes Again, a.k.a. The Masked Man Strikes Again. If anyone has these or any leads I would greatly appreciate it.

I also made another mega with a few other miscellaneous Lucha movies.

https://mega.nz/#F!VJRlXCJa!x7mSswdJd8YHjsBWY3A00Q

In here is:

> Santo in 'The Vampire and the Sex' (1969) (Santo en el Vampiro y el sexo; English Subtitles), which is just a re-editing of Santo en el tesoro de Drácula (Santo in "The Treasure of Dracula", 1968) with porn scenes in it. On that note, I am also missing the other porn edited Santo film, The Lepers and Sex, a re-editing of Santo contra los jinetes del terror (Santo vs. the Terror Riders, 1970) .

> Starfighters (Luchadores de las Estrellas) (1992) - a modern movie featuring a fictional masked Luchadora. Many real luchadores in it, like Satanico, Blue Demon Jr, Volador, Misterioso.

> Captain America and Santo vs. Spider-Man (1973) (Three Giant Men-3 Dev Adam) - Unlicensed Turkish film where Santo (not played by the real one) and Captain America fight a villainous Spider-Man.

> Wrestlemaniac (El Mascarado Massacre) (2006) - An English slasher movie where Rey Misterio Sr. plays a masked wrestler who kills horny teenagers.

If anybody has any other lucha movies and wants to help a brother out with his collection please do. Otherwise, enjoy 'em.

I think I downloaded Hijo Fantasma's movie, looks like it's down from youtube.

iirc somebody who went on to be somebody is in Starfighters, I think the guy who played Sabretooth?

I also have a couple of Mil Mascaras movies raw where he fights John Carradine, one of them Carradine is a nazi, the other he's Dracula.

Atlantis said this?

I'm pretty sure Mil Mascaras was in the Kinnikuman anime when they were showing the champs who'd held the belt before.
Not sure about comics, but I'd be really surprised if somebody didn't draw Santo, Blue Demon, or Mil Mascaras in something before the 80s when Atlantis started.

I'm not aware of any Atlantis posters, but I wouldn't be surprised at all if it existed.

There's a bunch of guys that had a great year, like Pagano, Soberano, Sanson, Garza Jr or, debatably, even Zeuxis. It's just that I didn't feel like any of them really put together a resumé that would justify saying that 2017 was 'their' year. When I was thinking about the best matches of the year, all the usual suspects had one or two matches in contention:
>Rush vs Park/Rush vs Diamante Azul
>ZSJ vs Negro Navarro/Daga, depending on taste
>Taya vs Ayako
>various Lucha Underground matches

None of the wrestlers in these matches strung together a truly remarkable run, or maybe I'm not remembering the year properly. Soberano Jr. and Sanson had a bunch of really good matches, but their rise to the top is still going on and putting them as wrestlers of the year feels weird.

Best Feud suffers from a similar issue - there simply weren't that many long-running feuds. Crash quickly abandoned the Rebelion faction thing, AAA booking outside Wagner/Psycho was erratic, CMLL decided on their Aniversario main event 2 months before it happened, Wagner/Park understandably took a backseat.

Results from AroLucha’s two shows - http://thecubsfan.com/cmll/events/shows/00070000/00070585.php and http://thecubsfan.com/cmll/events/shows/00070000/00070590.php

>The 1/19 show was the first live show for the group, and the ticket situation looked a little dire going into the night. This group is doing a lot of local media the day of the show. The turnout doesn’t look bad., maybe half full in a small building, about what you’d expect for a new group. The show sounds like it was fun, and they announced a return date here of 04/28 with Rey Mysterio.
>The 1/20 show was said to be fun. They announced a return here on 04/29 with Rey, Penta and Fenix. The promotion itself is back on 02/16 in Beaumont and 02/17 Humble, Texas. Talent list for those: “Blue Demon Jr, Juventud Guerrera, Super Crazy, Chavo Guerrero Jr, Sammy Guevara, John Hennigan, James Storm, Shane Hurricane Helms, Low Ki, Demus, Mascarita Dorada, Taya, MVP, Maximo, Lady Apache, LAX, Steve Pain, Laredo Kid, Keyra, Xtra Talented, Low Rider, Thunder Rosa”.

And here’s the results for The Crash - http://thecubsfan.com/cmll/events/shows/00070000/00070134.php

The suspension appears to be an angle. It’s not 100% clear, but all the logic points that way. Tijuana does have a commission and it has actually suspended high profile people in the past. They usually don’t do it while the show going on, and the Yellow Rebellion guys still wrestled in the main event anyway. Nothing they did really suggested they should be suspended for a year. Plus, the Ultimo Ninja/Garza Jr. split seems like an angle (which could’ve only happened if they were suspended), and The Crash happened to be streaming on Facebook with two different feeds when they didn’t really stream the rest of the show.

>It would be obvious bad news if the lead rudo group for The Crash couldn’t wrestle in the cities home promotion until 2019, but that just seems unlikely. It would be good news if they’re back to actually running angles here again.

>Bestia looked like he needed stitches after the main event, which turned into a hardcore match.

>Zona Ruda has seven good and bad things about the show. Charlie Haas did not look good. Rey Horuz did look good.

>The Crash were recording yesterday’s show for their TV show, which does not yet have an announced start date or a network. Roberto Figueroa was doing the announcing, and wrote that four of the six matches had money thrown in. The building looked pretty full on video. The Zona Ruda review mentions there was a lot more time between matches than usual and the show ran long as a result.

It's not uncommon for a luchador who lost his mask to wear it to the ring when abroad. Especially if he recently lost it because no one would know. It's done in Mexico too but only if the wrestler hasn't worked in country for a long while, but you can't keep it on after the bell rings.
The mask rules do not apply outside of Mexico or Latin America about donning a lost mask which is why guys like Rey who had their masks lost while in WCW started to wear them again once they left because that didn't count.
Also a unmasked Luchador can take a new mask outside of Mexico.
Volador (Sr.) lost his mask but wrestles as Super Parka everywhere else.

>in Ruleta de la Muerte (Spanish for "Roulette of Death"), tag teams face off in a single elimination tournament, but unlike traditional tournaments it is the losing team that advances. The losing team in the final match must wrestle each other in a Lucha de Apuestas match, where either their mask or their hair is on the line. They can feature 4-16 teams, most of them created for the tournament. A 1998 show featured no additional matches outside the 15 tournament matches and the Lucha de Apuesta match.

>On his Facebook, Drone posted a message addressing his out of sorts performance on FantasticaMania. Drone’s explanation was that he did not wrestle drunk, but that he was having trouble sleeping in Japan the entire tour, took some medication to help, and it left him in a bad shape the next day. He was apologetic about what had happened, though he also still ended with a hashtag. The post was either deleted or hidden to friends only within an hour; there’s a screen cap here.

>I’m skeptical about this story; it feels like something Drone made up once he got home and everyone started asking him about it. Drone was able to post a selfie on Facebook from Japan after that bad match, and yet think to write anything about his “illness” until much latter. It comes off as a guy who thought maybe he got away with a bad day, didn’t realize until later how he didn’t really get away with it, and scrambled to make something up. And, really, whether it was alcohol or strong medicine or something else entirely, Drone still screwed up.

>(Other people screwed up too. Most of the responsibility is on Drone. Some of it’s on the people who thought he was OK to get in the ring when he clearly wasn’t. It’s fortunate that it just was foolish instead of dangerous. It probably would’ve been very tough to tell Puma or Disturbio that they would have to sit out of a match in Korakuen Hall because of Drone’s screw up. It’s also what NJPW or CMLL should’ve done. Even after the fact – how did someone not grab Drone and escort him past the interview set so he didn’t embarrass himself and the promotion any more? Even if he somehow hid his condition before the match, it was pretty clear by the end of it. I know the instinct is to let Drone expose himself for his mistakes, it just wasn’t the best thing for CMLL.)

>Drone’s performance has now made it all the way to Record and is being picked up by Mexican news sources today. CMLL’s pretty good at ignoring the rest of the world, so it’s far from certain that anything will come of all of this.

Well Drone fucked up though I didn't really notice anything off about him wrestling on the tour. Did anyone else?

AAA had a press conference today before tonight’s show but there’s some big news in terms of its deal with Twitch and trying to do shows outside of Mexico:

>The AAA press conference went over AAA’s current media picture. AAA starts this week on Space channel in Mexico and other Latin America commercials. (People watching the channel today told me they started seeing commercials for it.) They also remain on Televisa, and it appears the same episodes will air on the same weekends on both channels, just with different sets of announcers since the main announcers are at least technically Televisa employees. There’s no indication AAA is leaving Televisa in the short term. In the long term, it’s safer to have options. (Also: having a show without Televisa involvement might make it possible for them to sell that show in the US outside of Televisa’s networks.)

>AAA is also going strong into Twitch, so much so that the sort of people who read this site might really not need to pay attention to their TV situation going forward. Their current Spanish language channel will go live 24/7 starting with Friday’s taping in Toluca, and the plan is to air every taping live in the same way CMLL currently does on YouTube. (CMLL has an advantage of taping from the same locations all the time; AAA will be traveling around and I wouldn’t hold it against them if some of these didn’t turn out to be actually live due to internet issues.) AAA says they’ll be running thirty one events in total, which would be up three from the last few years.

>When the Twitch channel is not streaming a live event, they’ll be streaming classic content from the AAA archives. This is going to be really exciting if AAA digs into shows from it’s first couple of dates, featuring some big names and matches which might have never been seen since they first aired. It’ll be less exciting if it’s more recent content already available on YouTube. They did go way back in the archive for TripleMania’s marathon, so this has the potential to be interesting and will at least keep the channel warm.

>This year is the Gira de Conquest for AAA, and went over their plans for their world conquest:

>February & March: Lucha Underground
>August & September: Colombia & Panama
>September & November: United States
>October: Japan (probably the Lucha World Cup)

>and there are talks about going to England, but no date has been agreed upon

It’s cool that AAA’s Twitch channel is gonna be 24/7 like Impact’s and that they’ll stream their shows on there like CMLL already does.

The sass in infectious.

BTW could someone pls fill me in on Hijo de Fantasma lore? I tried getting into AAA just as he was getting hyped up and he didn't leave much of an impression; in retrospect that might've been on AAA more than him because apparently this mask match really is a big deal and he's actually a 15 year vet? He's just been that guy with the cool LU gimmick to me.

There's not much 'lore' around HdF - he was a CMLL guy and unhappy about not getting pushed enough until he jumped to AAA and becamed part of El Consejo, their ex-CMLL stable. Back in like 2014, when AAA were seriously thinking of pushing a cruiserweight division, HdF was one of the centerpieces along with then-Bengala (Ricky Marvin). In 2016 he tried to get away from AAA and booked into WWE or American indies, partly because he speaks English fairly well, but it didn't work out (there were some contract intircacies involved iirc) and CMLL wouldn't take him back, so he pretty much doesn't have options beside making it in AAA. Now he's an upper midcard guy who's making the best out of what he has. If he's ever going to be a big star, it's outside of AAA, but I wouldn't bet on it happening.


By the way, ELITE is coming back with familiar names like Cibernetico and Golden Magic. Back when they started, they were a much-needed breath of fresh air, but now, with both AAA and CMLL streaming weekly, I'm not sure if there's a huge void for them to fill outside of booking certain wrestlers. It's not like we're gonna see Bobby Lashley or Teddy Hart in Arena Mexico, let alone Rush, who seems to be fine with the occasional Crash appearance. Still, if it means we're gonna see Senorita Cometa again, I'm all for it.

Wait how does this apply to re-brands?
I thought L.A. Park's name was common knowledge because of the AAA lawsuits. Turns out he lost 3 different fuckin' masks before getting the mr skeletal gimmick to begin with. He's explicitly defended his 'mask' 19 times since, why is this allowed?
Drago too. He was a maskless AAA midcarder. Then they give him the Drago mask and... apparently he defended it on PPV just last October? What's the draw? You've seen his face already. I get doing it for heat shit Ishii did that over in Japan but why'd beloved heroes be so dishonorable? Even Rey's only put his mask on the line a grand total of once in the 2 decades since WCW, and it was treated more like Angle's medals or Tatsu's action figure anyway.

I thought the State Commission took it seriously enough to suspend people who re-mask?
And what about the actual fans? How are they expected to care? CMLL's first attempt at the Mistico gimmick was El Sagrado, a rebarnd of a guy who'd already lost his mask in CMLL itself. Why the fuck did they think he'd get over as a super-face when the entire persona's founded on failure & shame? FFS bloody Chikara did better than that with the Equinox/Gerrard angle.

LU Season 4 spoilers so far


Lucha Underground filmed the first episodes of its fourth season for the El Rey Network over the weekend in Los Angeles. The following spoilers notes are courtesy www.SoCalUncensored.com's Steve Bryant. We thank them for their assistance and invite anyone looking for news and events in that area to visit their excellent website.

At the end of season three LU promoter Dario Cueto was shot in the chest by Winter. As he was passing out, he dialed his father on the phone. The season four tapings began with a 10 bell salute to Cueto, interrupted by his father, Antonio Cueto. His father is being played by the exact same actor that plays Dario, Luis Fernandez-Gil, but in makeup to make him look older. It is unclear if Antonio Cueto is a new character or is supposed to be Dario Cueto pretending to be his father. Antonio Cuerto then declared that there would be an Aztec Warfare match.

The Aztec Warfare match included most of the returning series regulars, but also had the return of Chavo Guerrero Jr. and Hernandez to the promotion. Tommy Dreamer and Jesse Godderz both made their Lucha Underground debuts. Pentagon Dark won the Aztec Warfare match and retained the Lucha Underground championship with the victory.

Dante Fox was not at the tapings, so he was replaced in the trios championship team by Son of Havoc. The current trios champions are Son of Havoc, Killshot, and The Mack.

There was a dark match with Aerostar facing Sammy Guevara and Jason Cade in their Lucha Underground debuts. Aerostar won the match.

Former WWE World champion Jack Swagger, under his real name Jake Hager, worked the second and third day of the tapings. He worked a dark match on the first set and on the third set, wrestled Sammy Guevara., defeating him and attacking him after.

Chelsea Green made her debut with Lucha Underground, working a four way agains with Jeremiah Crane (Sami Callihan), Marty “the Moth” Martinez, and Exolicious (NYC area talent Sonny Kiss) with Marty scring the win.

Mil Muertes defeated Crane and Fenix in a "Three Ways to the Grave" casket match at Friday’s tapings, where both Crane and Fenix were placed in separate caskets.

Lucha Underground champion Pentagon Black defeated Brian Cage on the third set of tapings.

LU is taping again from 3/1-3/3 and will be filming backstage segments for the new season through the week.

I really don't like them adding more and more of the guys you'd see on any American indie. A big part of what makes LU special is the exotic lucha vibe; the more you water it down with generic American indie wreslters the weaker that flavor gets

The thing about LU spoilers is that it's so hard to get a grasp on what the show will be like because 50% or more of it is backstage stuff and storylines.

Like, everyone was super up in arms over Sexy Star winning the belt, but it ended up being a logical storyline that actually made a lot of sense and was built to on TV properly. Granted there were a lot of problems with it, the main problem being Sexy Star, but it's a case where it played out in the spoilers terribly, but on TV just fine.

Fuck Sexy Star though.

Preface: I haven't read the spoilers, and I'm excited to experience a LU season without knowing what's going to happen in advance for the first time.

The dismissal of Mexican wrestlers in favor of whatever US indie rejects you can drum up is a disappointing development for me. A lot of these dudes are talented, and I'll be the first to say that Killshot/Fox was one of the best matches in Lucha Underground history. However, it's a style that is well-represented in multiple promotions today. What could make LU mark its influence beyond its 4 seasons would be making lucha libre style pervasive among a new group of fans, while opening it up to more international influences. If it's just going to be 'American dudes wrestle under masks' I'm not interested.

>lucha
It doesn't sound *bad* per se but it's kind of hilarious that John Morrison and Sami Callihan will be working Impact and LU simultaneously alongside Tommy Dreamer who returns to Impact to feud with oVe
I'm surprised they brought back Hernandez considering how he left. And Chavo who just doesn't have the star power to justify the return after losing his "Loser Leaves LU" match with Mysterio

Sammy Guevara
He was poised to be the big breakout star coming out of the AroLucha pilot taping. It's kind of crazy how quickly some of the luchadors from the AroLucha taping have been scooped up by AAA and now LU. LOL Konnan.

The drama between AAA and Konnan and LU and AroLucha and Impact is nuts.

Some of this may already have been posted but...

> The new season of Lucha Underground, which will likely start airing in the late spring or summer, started taping on 2/23 in Los Angeles. The biggest news is that Luis Fernandez-Gil, who played Dario Cueto, is back, but not as Dario Cueto, but Antonio Cueto, made up to look like an old man, described as looking like Einstein, as the father of the now deceased Dario Cueto, who died in the final episode of season three. Dario appeared to be killed off in that episode, but with Lucha Underground, you never know. SoCal Uncensored had a lot of other news from the tapings. Antonio Cueto then set up the seasonal Aztec Warfare (Royal Rumble, except with pins, a hell of an innovative concept that you would think wouldn’t work but the first one was better than pretty much any Royal Rumble ever). Hernandez is back with the promotion, and also in the Warfare match were Chavo Guerrero Jr., who has returned after he lost a loser leaves forever match, Tommy Dreamer and Jessie Godderz. Pentagon Dark won, which is interesting, since he was one of the guys returning just to be written out and get out of his contract, unless they’ve managed to convince him otherwise.

> A lot of guys who are on this season are there with the agreement that they will get out of their seven-season contract if they agree to come back and get written out. There is even talk of creating a serial killer character to kill them off, like actually kill them off. Son of Havoc (Matt Cross) replaced Dante Fox (A.R. Fox) in the six-man championship team, teaming with Killshot (Shane Strickland) and The Mack (Willie Mack).

> Sammy Guevara and Jason Cade debuted. Guevara is notable because he was the first guy signed by Arolucha and told us that his contract didn’t allow him to do anyone else’s television, but he could work anywhere he wanted. Guevara is under a three-year Arolucha deal and Arolucha has the right to control his bookings. The deal was put together at the last second. Arolucha at first wasn’t going to let him do the TV until it was worked out between the sides. The feeling from Arolucha is that they have him under contract and he’ll get exposure on TV which will help his name when they tour with him and if they get TV he’ll have more of a name going in. He’s allowed to work anywhere, except television. Guevara and Cade debuted in a three-way that was won by Aerostar. Sonny Kiss debuted and beat Jack Evans

> On 2/24, Vanilla Ice was at the show. Joey Ryan was wrestling in a match and pointed him out. Jake Hager (Jack Swagger) debuted. He may be looking for new work with the uncertainty of Five Star. I think he’s being called Jack Hager instead of Jake. Hager beat Guevara and then turned heel after the match. Apparently there was an insane dive during this match and Hager didn’t quite catch him on it. Chelsea Green (Laurel Van Ness) also debuted in a four-way with Jeremiah Crane (Sami Callihan), Marty Martinez and Exolicious (Sonny Kiss), which Marty won. I believe Green isn’t signing a contract and is working here as a free agent. Crane is back even though he lost a casket match to Mil Muertes and in Lucha Underground, that’s supposed to mean you are dead

> On 2/25, Pentagon Dark retained the Lucha Underground title beating Brian Cage

> Referee Rick Knox also suffered a broken clavicle. Knox referees here and a number of Southern California groups including PWG. He’s likely out for the rest of the season

They are taping on 3/1, 3/2 and 3/3 this week

> Sexy Star is not back for this season because she is training full-time for a boxing match. Under real name Dulce Garcia, she has the biggest fight of her career on 3/24 in Saltillo, facing Loudes Juarez. Garcia is 2-0, but has only fought beginner level competition. Juarez is 22-2 and holds the WBC Fecombox Women’s Flyweight title.

>Vampiro talks about running the TV tapings from backstage like a mad man. Vampiro notes they have viewers live from around the world so, during the taping, he’ll pop up in a box on a screen and start explaining everything what’s going on English, including burying things that aren’t going right.
>This has never happened. This is at least the second time Vampirio has said this is happening. Is this something he’s been pitching and it hasn’t gotten done? Is he under the impression it’s actually happening? Is this happening on Space and we’re not seeing it? Can it please start happening?

>CMLL & Elite are done one again. CMLL posted a statement declaring they have no be participating in the ELITE Arena Azteca show and have no relationship with that network. They also said none of their wrestlers or buildings will be part of the show. This announcement was made just a few minutes before Friday night’s show. It follows a couple days of Azteca’s A+ network beginning to promote the new Arena Azteca show.

>ELITE has not responded to this news. Neither has Azteca. ELITE hasn’t said anything since their 02/11 show was canceled – they haven’t talked about “Arena Azteca” or the lineup that had Cage on it or when they might be back. CMLL never mentions ELITE by name in this most recent press release. It’s possible the breakup here is only between CMLL & Azteca and not ELITE & CMLL. It’s not clear if there is even an ELITE without Azteca, though.

>It doesn’t really matter who’s fault it was, because everyone looks silly. ELITE is the promotion who keeps falling apart. Azteca is promoting a TV show which may not exist. CMLL gave this partnership a big rollout about this three way alliance at the press conference, and either fell apart after one show or was never really done to begin with. CMLL’s now back to presenting shows on Sunday which they declared weren’t as interesting a concept as the ELITE shows, and burned a relationship with a TV network when they could really use the TV It’s embarrassing.

Lucha Underground spoilers: They taped 3/1 to 3/3 instead of 3/2 to 3/4 as originally scheduled because the Rey de Reyes AAA show was on 3/4

> Rich Swann was backstage at the tapings. Tommy Dreamer, Chelsea Green and Sammy Guevara didn’t work this set of tapings. A lot of stuff was apparently filmed out of order

> Notes from the 3/1 tapings. They taped two shows. The first show opened with Drago pinning Aerostar. Kobra Moon was out with Drago so they are still together. Drago won clean in a basic match. Matanza Cueto pinned Vinne Massaro in a comedy match. Massaro came to the ring and Antonio Cueto (Luis Fernandez-Gil, playing the father of the deceased Dario Cueto) came out. As great as he was at Dario Cueto, him playing the cartoon character of his father was described as “his awfulness and corniness cannot be overstated.” He said that he should fire Massaro for his performance at Aztec Warfare. But instead, he was getting him a pizza. So a pizza delivery showed up with a pizza and Massaro was happy. Cueto then said he had to make a sacrifice to the Gods.

> Matanza came out. Massaro did comedy for a minute before being squashed with the tour of the islands. Matanza sacrificed both Massaro and the pizza delivery guy. Antonio Cueto announced there would be a six-man match with the three winners then going on to battle for the Gift of the Gods championshp. It wound up as Dark Cuerno (El Hijo del Fantasma on Impact and in AAA) teaming with Dragon Azteca Jr. (Rey Horus everywhere else) & Dezmond X (Dezmond Xavier) beating Ivelisse & Son of Havoc (Matt Cross) & The Mack (Willie Mack). Good short match ending when Cuerno pinned Havoc. Killshot was watching at ringside. Mil Muertes then attacked and laid out Azteca, X and Cuerno. Killshot tried to make the save but Muertes laid him out as well.

> After they were all laid out, they had the three-way for the title where Azteca Jr. beat Cuerno and X. This was said to be a **** match that will probably be even better than that by the time it airs on television with all th editing in place. There were a few minor hiccups between the outstanding stuff that will be edited out most likely andmake it better. X did a standing 619 off the ringpost to a standing Azteca outside the ring. He also did a swanton off a structure over the entrance way that was every bit of ten feet off the ground, mabye more. Tons of dives and crazy spots. Azteca pinned X to win it. The crowd was going crazy throughout the match.

> The second show opened with Azteca Jr. out for a promo. He talked about winning the Gift of the Gods title and would cash it in for a title match at Ultima Lucha 4 in the main event. But since he said it was a long way until then, he would issue an open challenge. Nobody came out, so this may have been taped for a later episode. Daga, who had Kobra Moon in his corner, beat P.J. Black. It went long and the crowd wasn’t into it early but they did get the crowd later. It’ll probably be fine edited down. Daga refused to release his submission move and the rest of the snake people attacked Black. Johnny Mundo and Jack Evans came out for the save with kendo stick shots. There were some brutal shots.

> Kobra Moon did a promo. She needed multiple takes and would have to start from the beginning each time. This wasn’t goodlive. The idea was to tell a long story to lead to a four on four mach next week. Mundo kept trying to lead her and it wasn’t working. The stipulation seemed to be that if Mundo’s Worldwide Underground team lost than Mundo would have to be Moon’s slave, but if Mundo’s team wins, than Moon will grant Mundo any wish he wants. Killshot & Havoc & Mack retained the trios titles over the Rabbit Tribe when Killshot pinned London. Lucha Underground booking is that every season there is a trios championship team and they don’t get along. And Killshot & Havoc & Mack are those guys this season. Mack had the match won but Killshot tagged himself in to score the pin, an they argued after the match.

> Main event was supposed t be a tag match where Cage and Pentagon Dark would each pick a partner. Cage picked Cuerno. Pentagon then said that he didn’t’ need a partner and would face both of them by himself. Then he said he would beat them both and take their mothers next. Pentagon got early offense but ended up being beaten down and pinned. Cage destroyed Pentagon with a concerto after. In actuality, Cage never hit Pentagon’s head so it was nothing to be worried about. The show ended with Pentagon laid out and Vampiro looking worried

> The biggest angles were show on 3/3, most notably the wedding between Johnny Mundo and Taya, who are engaged in real life. The groomsmen were Joey Wrestling (Joey Mercury, who was Mundo’s first tag team partner in OVW and WWE as M&M) and P.J. Black. The bridesmaids were Cheerleader Melissa, using that name and not Mariposa under a mask, and Brenda, who is the women with Famous B. Famous B presided over the ceremony. Antonio Cueto had catered tacos. Matanza Cueto interrupted and head-butted Taya, who juiced and was thrown into the wedding cake and the table full of tacos was destroyed. Pentagon and Cage had a last man standing match for the Lucha Underground title. This was said to be a crazy match ending when Pentagon did a Canadian Destroyer off the ropes and put Cage through a table. The former Jack Swagger is now going by the name Jack Strong, and he beat Drago

> Eli Everfly, a Southern California independent wrestler, debuted in a three-way against Mesias and Marty the Moth Martinez. Martinez won. Everfly won the crowd over big-time. Azteca retained his Gift of the Gods title over Killshot. Matanza beat Joey Wrestling and then offered him as a sacrifice. They turned out the lights and he was gone, although the live crowd would see him roll out of the ring and go to the back. Rick Knox, who suffered a broken clavicle last week, was working, mostly as a referee outside the ring for a few matches.

Here's more Lucha Underground spoilers courtesy of the Wrestling Observer.
Notes from the 3/9 tapings.
> Marty the Moth Martinez won a six-way over Eli Everfly, Chelsea Green, Sammy Guevara, Cage and Royce Isaac. Good match with a lot of flying moves and dives, but nobody got that big of a reaction. The story was Martinez and Green working together until Martinez turned on Green and pinned Everfly to win the match.
> Killshot pinned Big Bad Steve. Son of Havoc was watching the match. There was some sort of a backstage angle as Steve came out selling an ankle injury. Killshot won with a stomp off the top rope. Killshot and Havoc started fighting after the match. Havoc unmasked Killshot (Shane Strickland) and Killshot ran to the back, covering his face.
> Pentagon retained the Lucha Underground title beating Hernandez in the main event. The story is that Johnny Mundo was supposed to be the opponent, but he was “injured,” so after Pentagon explained that in the promo, Hernandez came out as the replacement. Pentagon won and set up the arm break spot, when King Cuerno attacked Pentagon with a belt to stop him breaking the arm. Cuerno laid out Pentagon with a piledriver onto his title belt.
> Dragon Azteca Jr. beat Ivelisse to keep the Gift of the Gods title. Both wrestled as babyfaces but the crowd was totally behind Ivelisse. Azteca got the pin after a missile dropkick off the middle rope. After losing, Ivelisse stayed in the ring for that sympathy cheering thing that has become the thing where you stand after a loss, do the sad face, and eventually cheer. But I was told the match wasn’t good enough for that spot to work.
> Joey Ryan and Xolicious came out. Xolicious asked Ivelisse to join he and Ryan as a regular trio. Ivelisse stalled but eventually accepted.
> Next saw Jeremiah Crane (Sami Callihan) & Daga & Kobra Moon retain the trios titles beating Aerostar & Drago & Fenix. The whole thing was built around the return of Fenix. He walked slowly and was all in black. Since you couldn’t see backstage, it appeared that at some point he had died and now he was coming back. This happens all the time in Lucha Underground and it’s among the reasons the buzz is off the promotion.
> Jack Strong (Jack Swagger) came out first and cut a promo on Aerostar and Drago. He acted as if Fenix wasn’t even there. He wanted a handicap match against the two and said that bigger stronger wrestlers will always beat little Lucha guys. He dropped an F bomb during his promo. Good match. When Fenix would tag in, he would move slowly, beat everyone up, and then tag out. He refused to dive during a set up triple dive spot. Then he jumped off the apron so his partners couldn’t tag him in. Then, as Aerostar & Drago had the advantage, he came back in and superkicked Aerostar and Crane pinned Aerostar for the win. Fenix went to walk off. Melissa Santos, just weeks after giving birth, tried to stop him. She was trying to snap him out of what he had become. It looked like he was responding to her until she pushed him down.
> The final match taped was Mil Muertes going to a double disqualification with King Cuerno. Antonio Cueto (Luis Fernandez-Gil, the original Dario Cueto, playing the aging father of Dario Cueto) said that Cuerno earned a title match but that Muertes also deserved a title match and hated Cuerno. The winner would face Pentagon Dark for the title next week. They had a good brawl. Muertes doesn’t do much, but with presence, timing, psychology and the gimmick, he has good matches without doing much. Lots of fighting outside the ring. The ref kept trying to get them back in the ring so they both decked the ref and threw him into the seats. They brawled some more until the ref threw it out. Cueto came out and said that because of that, next week would be a Triple Threat for the title. Pentagon came out and appeared at the top of the temple and stared both men down

Notes from the 3/10 tapings.
> Cage beat Everfly.
> Fenix beat Aerostar.
> Azteca Jr. came out to attack Fenix, but Fenix who is now a dark character, injured Azteca. Azteca then had to defend his Gift of the Gods title against Martinez, who beat him for the title.
> Pentagon won the three-way over Muertes and Cuerno to keep his title.
> Martinez then cashed in his Gift of the Gods title to challenge Pentagon, and won the title with outside help from Chelsea Green.
> Jack Strong won a handicap nunchakus match over Aerostar and Drago.
> Matanza Cueto pinned Jack Evans. After the match, Evans became a human sacrifice and disappeared. This could be writing him out of the show.
> Crane & Daga & Moon beat Joey Ryan & Xolicious & Ivelisse. This could be a trios title match.
> The New Rabbit Tribe of Paul London & Killer Kross (Kevin Kross) & Mascarita Sagrada came out and looked like they wanted to challenge for the trios belts.
> Pentagon won a four-way over Muertes, Cuerno and a fourth person whose name we didn’t get. The Mack interfered and cost Muertes the match to set up a Mack vs. Muertes cage match

Notes from the 3/11 tapings.
> Mack beat Killshot via DQ when Muertes interfered. Muertes then beat Mack in their cage match.
> Martinez retained his Lucha Underground title beating Mariposa, who is his sister, played by Cheerleader Melissa.
> The Rabbit Tribe beat Ryan & Ivelisse & Xolicious.
> Killshot pinned Son of Havoc.
> Strong pinned Mundo. After the match, Matanza laid out Mundo. This set up a Human Sacrifice match with Mundo vs. Matanza for Ultima Lucha, which I believe is being taped next weekend. For what it’s worth, the last we heard was that Matanza (Jeff Cobb) was returning on the guise they’d give him his release after the season, while Mundo was expected to be staying.

No idea. In lieu of any long-standing beef that's what makes it so interesting.
Did Cuatrero wanna be maskless all along but see a potential payday?
Did Oro look at BRoja's post-mask success and want a piece of it?

So here’s the stuff on AroLucha crowdfunding that Dave mentioned on WOR in more detail from cubsfan:

>AroLucha announced they’re selling shares of their company on crowd investing platform We Funder. People who invest will own part of the company, up to a total of 1/9th if their funding maxed out. Investors will get discounted merchandise, be allowed to participate in polls on the creative decisions and get to see the pilot. The funding campaign kicked off with AroLucha’s CEO Jason Brown selling the idea in an article Tennesssean, who’s been covering this promotion since the December TV taping. Brown pitches it as a chance for the fans finally to be heard and that Rey Mysterio is part of the ownership group.

>AroLucha’s timeline says Mysterio became part of the ownership group in November, the month before the first TV taping. I think that might mean Mysterio did not buy into the company, but perhaps instead was given stock or stock options as part of his deal for working that taping. On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said Rey’s involvement in AroLucha was overblown in the article, and that it would have no effect on his possible return to WWE.

>If you check out Wefunder’s FAQs, the first couple of answers tell you not to invest to make money, and only to invest if you can afford to lose every single dollar you invest. That applies to all start up companies, not just AroLucha. Even a completely sound investment of a start up is likely to fail. This is a start up entering into a competitive market, which they’re trying to pitch as completely open to make it attractive and instead appearing as if they don’t understand what they’re doing. This is a group planning on doing TV tapings in May or June which doesn’t have a TV partner, and who’s plan of running 10 house shows this year ended with 4.

>If you want to buy into a wrestling company for the novelty of saying you own part of a wrestling company and can afford to the $100 minimum investment, please do not let me stop you. I would no sooner stop the person who wants to spend that much or more on a replica championship title. I will simply advise you that your stock in AroLucha will probably end up being just as real as the replica championship belt, and lot less shiny.

>AroLucha needs to get at least $50K to get anything funded. They’ll need a heavy campaign to reach even that minimum. The Tennessean article did not actually mention the funding site, which hurts. The $100 minimum to fund is a lot higher than traditional funding sites like Kickstarter, which erases a lot of people kicking in in small amounts of money they’d wouldn’t mind losing on a project like this. Years ago, Masked Republic tried something similar with a TV show pilot, promoted it a lot, and did not come close to hitting their number. Jeff Katz’s Wrestling Retribution Project, a 2011 Kickstarter wrestling show, did get funded but never delivered it’s content. That show is the boogeyman in the room, the one scares people away from wanting to invest in projects like this. You can get into the weeds on that one – there’s a theory few fans were actually affected because it was actually a small amount of private investors who funded the thing and they were just using Kickstarter as a way to get buzz – but it’s still the example of what can happen with these sorts of projects.

>That buzz might actually be AroLucha’s buzz here. They need a TV deal, and they need a TV company to take them seriously. They’d like the money, the money will keep them going longer, but they’re selling themselves on social media impressions and the amount of people who they can claim will be tuning in once a network picks them up. Having a whole bunch of people who want to invest in their company is part of that TV pitch. Being able to promote Rey Mysterio as owner is another part of that plan.

>The big obstacle for AroLucha are the Harris Brothers. AroLucha is hyping how reactive they are to the fans, and they’re aware of Vince Russo’s perception to not mention him at all in their sales pitch. There are people with the promotion obviously paying attention to every time the word “AroLucha” is mentioned, which means they’ve seen “AroLucha Nazis” quite a few times by now. The Harris Brothers infamously had SS tattoos on their arms, and one wore an SS t-shirt on a TNA show, which are commonly associated with Nazis. Whenever that image is posted, you’ll also find people claiming those logos are also part of biker culture, and they had them covered up, and they became born again Christians and are definitely not Nazis. That may be true – I’d like it to be true, we could use less Nazis – but that’s something they probably need to say themselves. I’d guess they think only a few people on the internet know or care about this accusation and they don’t want to give it more attention by acknowledging it, but the only type of people who are going to invest money in this project are the type of people to very much know this accusation.

>I’m skeptical they’re getting the money either way, so maybe it’s not worth the hassle. But saying you’re not a Nazi should not be a hassle. They’re up to $1,590 in funding at least check, which is more than I got for my book, so I guess I have to respect that.

Scrapped Lucha Underground booking plans:
>DeJoseph and Roach mention Pentagon was originally scheduled to win the championship at Ultima Lucha 2. They knew how over Pentagon was at that point. They also were concerned they were short changing the Matanza character by having him lose in three months and turning him into LU version of WWE’s Kane (had a long lead up and impressive debut but got beat too soon and was considered a level below the championship guys.) They also felt there were more storytelling opportunities for Matanza as champion at that time and Pentagon could thrive as an Undertaker-like character who didn’t need a title for most of his feuds. They were always high on Pentagon, they even pitched Alberto on having Pentagon break his arm to explain why he wasn’t around for a set of tapings (Alberto didn’t see Pentagon as big enough star and said no), they just didn’t see him needing the title until it was obvious it had to happen at the end of Season 3 because everyone would flip out if someone else ended up with it.

>In other interviews, DeJoseph had hinted that there was another choice to win Aztec Warfare 3 beside Sexy Star but would always avoid saying who that pick was. In this interview, DeJoseph and Roach reveal it was Angelico. It turns out LU had lots of plans for Angelico that never worked out due to his injuries – he was originally going to end up in Worldwide Underground and instead ended up feuding with them due to his first injury. His second injury made him doubtful for Aztec Warfare, and Roach takes credit(/blame???) for pitching Sexy Star in that spot. Had Angelico won, he was also planned to lose it the following episode: the bit was never as much about Sexy Star or Angelico as it was making Johnny Mundo even more hated. Sexy Star lost the Gift of the Gods title to Mundo for that purpose, and they reasoned Mundo would be even more evil if he stole a title from her twice. Angelico was cleared by the time the match took place, but they had already picked the new direction at that point. Had they stuck with Angelico as champion, the Ultima Lucha 3 big matches were looking like Puma/Pentagon in a career vs career match and Mundo vs Angelico for the title. Angelico would’ve won it back, only for Son of Havoc to do the Gift of the Gods cash in on his friend and win the title to end the season.

>Again, there’s more in the interview worth listening to. I don’t want to give away, because it’s great audio and it sounds like it never escaped the writers room but, if you’ve ever idly wondered “what if they did a butterfly effect story with Aerostar’s timetravel powers?”, they explore that idea and it’s a lot of fun.

He hits his head because he keeps climbing on very tall things and falling off of them. I'd say he should have a talk with his friends about safety, but he's friends with Jack Evans so he'd probably end up doing crazier shit. God forbid Aerostar gets in his ear.

From this week's Wrestling Observer:

> The fourth season's Ultima Lucha was taped on 3/18 in Los Angeles. We don't have a lot of notes on it but the season ends with Jake Strong (Jack Swagger) being pushed as the big star as he first won the Gift of the Gods title on the show taped 3/17, and then cashed it in and won the Lucha Underground title from Pentagon Jr. Another key match was a human sacrifice match where basically the loser dies, where Johnny Mundo beat Matanza Cueto. So Jeff Cobb is now a free agent as for doing the ultimate job of death, he was released from the last three seasons of his contract. Pentagon had won the title from Marty the Moth Martinez on 3/18 in a match that was ridiculously bloody. It was so bloody that it may end up edited before it hits television. Vampiro attacked Pentagon after the match. They also introduced a new character, Vampiro's master, who was Australian Suicide. With Pentagon laid out, that's when Strong cashed in his Gift of the Gods belt and won the title.

He can probably make a legally distinct mask and get American indie bookings as "Mil Mesias" or some shit and work for The Crash. Honestly I want Mesias and LA Park to have a bloody brawl somewhere on the Mexican indie scene more than anything.

Rick Rude's other masked persona. "The Phantom".

Been lookin' into that since last posting. The pattern's taken wholesale from his dad & uncles (Las Gemas Del Ring) but the coloration's completely inverted. I cant find a single example of any of them wearing a black mask. The very name "Brillante" means "Sparkly" - Sombra himself wore a white glittering mask until he changed his name from Brillante Jr to Sombra.

>AAA officially announced Verano de Escandalo will take place June 3rd in Plaza de Toros La Monumental in Monterrey, and will include Rey Mysterio Junior. AAA says more details will be announced later.
>
>Mysterio last wrestled for AAA in 2006 at the special Tokyo Star Battle show. It was one of a handful of matches he worked for AAA on big shows that year, mostly Lucha Underground related. This too is a big show, the bullring likely being the second biggest building AAA will run all year. AAA could use people the level of Mysterio to sell tickets for this June show, since they don’t appear to have anything planned the level of the Fantasma/Texano match from March. This does not appear to be a full time return for Mysterio, just a selected dates. It does not drastically affect Mysterio’s chances of returning to WWE; he’s wanted a part time deal there all along so he could work occasional outside dates like these, and this shows he hasn’t changed his mind on that yet. Likewise, it does not prevent Rey Mysterio from working for the Crash, except he’ll probably still be working only a limited out of dates and picking up a few from AAA means doing less elsewhere.

>Konnan didn’t explain what he meant, and it didn’t appear connected to Aro Lucha or any of his other known projects. I’ve got an idea or two.
>
>Rey Mysterio’s post-WWE work usually involves Konnan. Konnan is also close with the Lucha Brothers. He worked with all three in AAA, in Lucha Underground, in The Crash and had them in the Arolucha TV pilot. In the past, Konnan’s tried to make a deal with AAA to end the legal threats and allow Penta & Fenix to work freely. We now know a has been made. The Crash cut ties with Konnan because they believed that deal was actually part of Konnan negotiating with AAA about returning to the promotion. Konnan’s denied it in the past.
>
>If Konnan was coming back to AAA now, getting Rey to come in and making things right with the Lucha Brothers feel like a few things near the top of the to do list in a Konnan return. I’m sure Rey is getting paid a nice amount of money. Penta & Fenix will enjoy not having legal nuisances and being able to work a couple extra TV shows, but there didn’t seem to be any urgency for them to make deals with AAA until now, all about the same time.
>
>From the other side, we know Rey de Reyes had major issues, the blame fell on Vampiro, and the blame for problems with AAA have been falling on Vampiro for the last year. It would make sense if AAA was at the point of making a change. They usually go with big names they know. They’re willing to move past bad experiences of the past if they think it’s worth it; Psicosis and Histeria sued the promotion for years and now are back on their TV. Vampiro not working out seems to prove you can’t just put anyone in that spot, and AAA’s had the most success with Konnan in that head creative role.

>This week is going to be an interesting week. That TV taping on Friday is Tijuana. If what I think is happening is actually happening, it may be hard to keep it quiet even that long.

RIP in peace to the Vampiro box you were too real for this world

>In his new stage as a technician, Kraneo wants to combat bullying against children who are overweight, a physical situation that he himself lives and wants to reverse.

>"If I have to be the example for those children to do something, to have a change, I can transform my body to motivate children; if a weight like me can achieve it, they can also achieve it.

>Kraneo has taken this initiative for the acceptance he has had as a technician on the part of the public, as he assured that he will try to follow in the footsteps of Atlantis, of whom he is now a partner, and be a role model for children even in eating habits.
