Editor’s Notes: Since the WWE is not keen on Cubans, K-1 s definitely the right home for this type of wackiness.

Kyoko Hamaguchi vs the Chinese Olympic Wrestling Team II- Games of the XXIX Olympiad Beijing Summer 2008 -72kg Medal Rounds

Posted by invizweb on August 26, 2008

The -63kg Medal Ceremony is still going on at 5:17 EST so I probably will not be sleeping at 6:00 Am today I guess. NBC commentator is still putting over the American Bronze medalist. Hamaguchi’s team mate, Kaori Icho is pretty photogenic when she is trying to fix her hair. Now NBC is emphasizing Japan only has 2 Gold so far in Wrestling stead of 3.

And so begins the conclusion of the tale which is Women’s Wrestling in the 2008 Olympics.

And this is how we got here:

-72kg Semifinals:

1. Jiao Wang (China) def Kyoko Hamaguchi (Japan)

2. Stanka Zlateva (Bulgaria) def Agnieszka Wieszczek (Poland)


-72kg Repechage

Pool 1. Ali Bernard (USA) def Jenny Fransson (Sweden)

Pool 2. Maider Unda (Spain) def Ohenewa Akuffo (Canada)

Lucha Report for 8/25

Posted by invizweb on August 26, 2008

Thanks to Kris Zellner


EMLL confirmed today that Mistico suffered a fractured collarbone last night in Guadalajara and will be out of action for 3 months. Mistico was rushed to Hospital Obregon in Mexico City last night after the show where he underwent surgery and Dr. Jorge Alonso Orozco announced this morning Mistico’s prognosis.

EMLL also confirmed today that Hector Garza had surgery at Hospital Obregon on his right knee this weekend after being injured Friday night at Arena Mexico and he will be out of action for at least 3 weeks.

Luchas 2000 is reporting that Sean Waltman could be on his way to EMLL with Marco Corleone being his go-between with Paco Alonso. Waltman had decided to quit working AAA recently due to being upset with the backstage scene that interferes with his recovery from drug rehab. More on this as it comes.

Scorpio Jr. was also taken to Hospital Obregon on Friday night with two bleeding ulcers that he underwent surgery for on Saturday. There really isn’t a set prognosis for a return to the ring yet.
