Histeria II & El Alebrije Change Their Names
After wrestler for almost 2 years in CMLL under the Histeria II & El Alebrije names those two stars are now changing their names. CMLL has pretty much dropped the Los Invasers angle and are really moving forward since AAA has started its own invasion angle with ex-CMLL wrestlers, so they want to repackage these two guys. Histeria II will now be known as Morphosis and El Alebrije will be known as Kraneo. Though they are repackaging both guys with new names/masks they also make sure that everyone is aware that it's Histeria and Alebrije, and Histeria is still claiming in interviews that he owns the "Histeria" name not AAA but he's changing his name because CMLL wants him to. Psicosis II is also expected to be repackaged but there is no word on when that might happen. El Luchador Returning for Season 2
A&E Latino has announced that they are picking up the reality series "El Luchador" for a second season and all of the CMLL stars involved in the first one are expected to return for season 2. Taping is expected to start early this year.
