The 8/27 Lucha Libre USA: Masked Warriors event in Charlotte, North Carolina last weekend drew an estimated 1,000 fans featuring the debuts of Reid Flair and former TNA star Petey Williams. Ric Flair was at the show, but stayed backstage. As reported on earlier, the show was originally slated to be taped for the MTV2 show, but talent were told the show was going on a hiatus. The company had signed a 52-week deal with MTV. The show had originally been scheduled to be Reid Flair’s national television debut reports The Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
