CMLL Honoring Rayo de Jalisco
This week CMLL announced that the legend they would be honoring this year at Dos Leyendas (along with CMLL founder Salvador Lutteroth) would be Rayo de Jalisco. Jalisco wrestled from 1950 until his retirement in 1989 feuding and teaming with some of the best luchadors ever including El Santo, Huracan Ramirez, & the original Blue Demon. He spent most of his career in CMLL and held the Mexican National Tag Team Titles twice with longtime partner El Santo as well as the Occidente & NWA Welterweight Championships. In the 60’s he formed a tag team with the Blue Demon and became known as one of the best technical wrestlers in Mexico. Near the end of his career in the late 80’s Jalisco goaded his former partner and rival (who was now retired) Blue Demon back into the ring for one more match, a Mask vs. Mask Match. That night Jalisco lost his match and shortly thereafter retired. His son, Rayo de Jalisco Jr., is a top independent star now and was a star for CMLL much like his father before a falling out with CMLL. His grandson is former CMLL & AAA (and current INDY) star Rayman.

El Luchador American Start Date
CMLL’s El Luchador reality show will begin airing in America on MTV Tr3s on March 10th. They will start from the very first episode rather than starting with the newest season.

CMLL says they don’t want him and Dorain Roldan tweeted that Wagner is under contract with AAA until 2014, but they wouldn’t use him again until he acknowledges that fact.
