looks like they replaced Myzteziz with Low Ki too. That looks like a really fun card

omg I was scratching my head at who the hell "Law Kid" was but I figured he was just some local indie guy they got in an emergency. Makes total sense though. I mean, who better to replace a headcase who burns bridges with a different promotion every couple years?

Hardly a surprise but AAA formally announced that Myzteziz is gone but they own the trademark on the name:

not every promoter has WWE or Carter money, Alberto. Maybe you should organize your personal life better.

Oh I know his stuff very well, I am so hyped for this. Loved Witching and Bitching and My Big Night.

Speaking of Del Toro, the lucha vampire hunter movie (Silva) he's been wanting to be made for years might actually happen now.

THE STREAK IS OVER


North American talent has been flying to wXw for years now and I can't think of a single issue I've ever heard about regarding anyone working over there. In fact, I don't think I've ever heard less than stellar reviews from guys who went on tours over there.

That coupled with Alberto thinking economy plus is sub-human is enough to let me know where the truth lies here.

wXw has brought in guys from pretty much all over the world, including legends like Misawa, Kobashi, Akiyama, Skayde, Suzuki, and essentially every major name that meant anything on the US Indies over the past 15 years, not to mention having some of the best Junior tournaments during that time, and there rarely ever were any complaints.

And now they are suddenly all bad? Strongly doubt that. Anyway, here is what wXw had to say:
http://www.wxw-wrestling.com/pages/...ht-ein-2419.php

quote:

AEP doesn't partake to agreed upon matches on the weekend.

With great regrets we at wXw and SWE have to inform you that AEP will not perceive his bookings in Europe.

We fixed these days in December 2014 after his annulation for Superstars of Wrestling and booked flights with a specific airlines from a specific city in Economy Plus. Management is in possession of respective screenshots.

On Saturday Alberto's manager wrote and 6 days away from the event in Switzerland demanded a Business Class seat from a small Mexican state - Price for this flight as of this point is around $7,000.

Of course we referred to our preexisting agreement and offered to cancel the flight, pay the cancellation fee to ADR and let him or his management book a flight using his frequent flyer miles. His manger rejected the offer and decided that AEP as well as El Hijo de Dos Caras would not partake their bookings in Bern on 16.10 and in Mannheim on 17.10. despite existance of the agreed flights.

Although this is outside of our control, we would like to apologize to all you wrestling fans - a collaboration with this wrestler and this management is ruled out for us in the future.
$7,000 sounds about normal for Business Class 6 days out on a transatlantic flight, but it's still a large sum for a wrestling fed, especialls if the previously agreed upon economy flight was probably below $1,000.

In that Mistico story, Dave casually refers to Rush as CMLL's biggest star. Is that accurate - he's bigger than Sombra or Atlantis?

Ever since I started watching, Sombra's seemed like the top dog to me, with Rush as his buddy and #2.

Thauros
Jan 29, 2003



I'm not a CMLL expert, but I'd say Rush is the 1A heel where Sombra's 1B. Atlantis is easily the top face and I would've thought he top guy as he's the one they rely on to carry the Anniversary shows at the gate.

I really hope they don't make Flamita Myzteziz. He's great, he deserves more than getting stuck with someone else's legacy.

LOS INGOBERNABLES trios or parejas matches have become my obsession of late. I just love Sombra and Rush, and Marco ain't so bad either (Mascara is fine in trios, too, but I like Marco waaay more).

This is from earlier this month, but the entire INGOBERNABLES act from top to bottom is so enjoyable to watch. The way they act like they don't give a poo poo, the constant posing and cheating, the begging off, just every part of the act rules, even when the matches aren't that great.

And I can't believe I'm saying this, but Sombra is actually better without the mask. Facial reactions have taken his character up a notch to the point he's my favorite wrestler going right now.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqNfZNzfWaA

Oh also, I hate incredibles matches, and this is filmed from the crowd, but the first move in this match has Sombra gently caress over his partner. The fact they don't even pay lip service to making this a legitimate match, and that Rush literally lays down and lets Sombra pin him for the final fall, made it enjoyable to me.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLJ7P6yc2KM

I am really glad I've gotten into lucha.
