AAA

Former AAA/CMLL Star “Taking Break” from Wrestling
This week former AAA and CMLL star Alex Koslov announced he was taking an “indefinite sabbatical” from wrestling. Kozlov had spent the last couple of years in New Japan as a member of the Forever Hooligans team with former CMLL star Rocky Romero. He said that he was “hesitant” to say that he was actually retiring, but it definitely sound like this was at least a semi-retirement for the Russian star. After making his start in wrestling in California he wrestled from 2006 to 2008 with CMLL and then jumped ship to AAA where he spent 2008 through 2010 as a member of D-Generation MEX with X-Pac and Rocky Romero before signing a developmental deal with the WWE. After being released by WWE he went to New Japan and spent the rest of his career there. Koslov won the AAA Cruiserweight Title (twice) and AAA World Mixed Tag Team Titles in AAA and was a two time IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Champion in New Japan with Romero. He and Romero also won the Ring of Honor Tag Team Titles.

Alberto el Patron Wins WWL Title
This past weekend AAA World Champion Alberto el Patron won the WWL World Title in Puerto Rico in a 3-Way against popular champion Glamour Boy Shane (former TNA wrestler/referee Shane Sewell) & El Mesias. Rumors continue to swirl about TNA, Bellator, and other MMA organizations wanting to sign him. Since his WWE departure Alberot has won the AAA Title in Mexico, WWL Title in Puerto Rico, wrestled for ROH in America, and Wrestle-1 in Japan. Alberto’s family members Dos Caras Sr., Hijo de Dos Caras, & Sicodelico Jr. lost a trios match on that same Puerto Rican card against Dennis Rivera, Noel Rodriguez, & Stefano. Interestingly enough former AAA star Laredo Kid is also a champion in WWL, as the Las Americas Champion.

MISC/INDY

Rey Horus to Appear at WrestleMania Weekend
At this years annual WrestleMania weekend one of the major INDY events there will be the King of the Indies Tournament, and one of the first participants announced thus far is luchador Rey Horus. Horus was given the Hijo de Rey Misterio name last year by his trainer Rey Misterio Sr. before switching to the Rey Horus name (which combined the Rey Misterio and his previous Horuz names). He is a very young, talented high flyer and it is a damn shame that neither AAA nor CMLL has picked him up yet. This exposure at King of the Indies could help that though and maybe even get him a shot at Lucha Underground or TNA. El Mariachi of Pro Wrestling Revolution in California has also been announced for the tournament.
