Reporter’s Note: As the run for Combat Hooligans has ended now I would like to thank Rich Tate, and for this article, and the many like it before, Kris Zellner. As “Dr. Lucha” Steve Sims has stated before, Kris is one of the premiere sources for lucha news in the English speaking language. His due diligence updates us Pro Wrestling fans with news and results daily. For that, I would concur Kris is one of the best wrestling journalists out there and “Hijo de Doctor Lucha.”
Hijo del Santo responded yesterday to some rumors that he would be working for AAA soon saying that even with the differences he has with Paco Alonso, he would always prefer working for them than AAA. Santo did say though that he highly doubts he would be returning to Arena Mexico anytime soon due to his problems with Paco and it’s a shame for the great fans that he would put his love of money over the wrestlers he employs.

Thanks again to Kris Z.
Perro Aguayo Jr. said today that the first Perros del Mal show yesterday in Mexico City had some trying moments but in the end it surpassed all of his expectations because of the great fans and the wrestlers who gave a tremendous effort to please them. Perrito said that he hasn’t been part of a show where the matches had electricity like it had in many years and that he was very proud of that fact because if the fans left the show happy then their goals as a promotion was accomplished. Perrito said that the lower prices and great talent overcame what failures they had and that they would improve their show quality even more with each passing show. Perrito said that Dos Caras Jr. was supposed to be on the show but he pulled himself off due to the issues with PdM & EMLL and there were other surprises that didn’t pan out (Rob Van Dam) so he apologized to any fans who expected anything that they didn’t deliver.
Cibernetico told Box y Lucha in their latest issue that he felt like he handled his departure from AAA in a very professional fashion and that if he had made a bigger deal out of it by calling a press conference it would’ve turned into a media circus which he didn’t want. Ciber said that leaving AAA hurt him tremendously because that was his home and he didn’t want to do it but the cancer in that locker room forced his hand. Ciber said that he could’ve taken the AAA Mega Heavyweight Title with him or threw it in the trash can but that would be disrespect to the sport which he would never do. Ciber said that he left with his dignity and wouldn’t let Konnan take it from him so he gives much respect and gratitude to the true people in charge of AAA and wishes them luck in the future. Ciber again was asked about working for EMLL and said that he was offered some dates but just wouldn’t feel right working there because he isn’t from their promotion originally and that he has always been either an independent or affiliated with AAA. Ciber then admitted that he had a bad experience with EMLL over 10 years ago where he was actually training there for 4 months but something happened that he wouldn’t forget thus forming his opinion of their promotion. Ciber said that he loves being an independent now because he can work where he wants plus working for Perros del Mal is very beneficial for his career right now because he can share a ring with Dr. Wagner Jr. which he has wanted to do for years. Ciber also said that he doesn’t rule out working for AULL or IWRG and would speak to their promoters if they meet his demands and if his schedule was free.
Dr. Wagner Jr. said today that EMLL can’t veto him from Arena Mexico and that taking him off of those shows would cost them many fans making it a heavy price to pay for their decision. Doc said that he doesn’t have to follow anyone’s rules but his and that he would think about taking legal action against EMLL but hopes that would be a last resort. Wagner then talked about the PdM show yesterday and said that Perrito & Cibernetico will pay for their act of jealousy and treason so he would pay them back soon. Read the rest of this entry »

Thanks to Kris Zellner
Los Perros del Mal held a press conference announcing their first show on Sunday at Sala de Armas de Magdalena Mixhuca in Mexico City which will be going head-to-head with a big EMLL show at Arena Mexico and it was officially announced that Olimpico, Rayman, Esther y Rossy Moreno, Martha Villalobos, & Ayako Hamada would be joining the promotion. Perro Aguayo Jr. said that he thinks that the first show will be a success and that he wants it to be fan friendly hence the lower ticket prices to show that they are open to doing what they have to do to ensure their fans would be happy. Perrito said that the top talent on the independent scene like Dr. Wagner Jr., Cibernetico, L.A. Par-K, & Intocable would be working the PdM shows because they can be true independents and their rights would be fully recognized by the promotion unlike the other ones in Mexico. Perrito also clarified the rumors that the PdM promotional offices were the actual property of EMLL President Paco Alonso saying that they aren’t Paco’s but he didn’t care that he rented them and that he was even going to let him use his talent but plans changed although he will still have those offices for a year. Perrito then sent a message to EMLL that they can try to run direct competition against him but they really need to worry about their fans leaving them to go the PdM shows for better entertainment and that if they want a war it can be arranged. The press conference closed in a heated way as Dr. Wagner Jr. & Cibernetico almost got in a brawl and Wagner decided to walk out.
The EMLL producers have said in the press that they would follow the PdM promotion and that they would be loading up cards in towns where PdM will be holding shows because Perro Aguayo Jr. betrayed them not the other way around and that this war was started by him first. This is interesting because EMLL has pretty much gone out of the way for years not to really acknowledge AAA but they are openly talking about PdM so 2009 should be an interesting year to see what comes out of this promotion and who they eventually align with either AAA or EMLL.
Cibernetico stated after the PdM press conference that working for PdM is very important for his career right now because he has only known how one promotion does their business and was considered normal to him but has become abnormal lately so he would like to go back to a more normal style promotion that actually takes care of their wrestlers. Ciber said that if the fans want to boo him he would understand but he wants them to know that if they support him he would give his usual 100%. Ciber was asked about his rivalry with AAA and said that he is still on good terms with the true powers that be in AAA not with the cancer that is trying to take control and that he wouldn’t rule out a return but only if they killed off the cancer. Ciber said though that he has a new rival in Dr. Wagner Jr. who loves to run his mouth so he would transfer his hate from the cancer over to him and would silence his critics. Ciber said that EMLL approached him with an offer to come to work for them but he said that he was never interested although he has lots of respect for their promotion and that he is part of a new movement now with PdM that supercedes any other traditional promotion.
Dr. Wagner Jr. stated after the PdM press conference that EMLL will suffer because of this new promotion and they are in a crisis because the fighters have won and EMLL has lost this battle. Wagner said that he doesn’t care that EMLL has vetoed him because he is a freelancer and that him not working for them is their loss not his so he doesn’t really care. Read the rest of this entry »
