Alberto del Rio Not Going to Lucha Underground
After stating last year that he would be working for Lucha Underground he went to Twitter this week to say the contrary. He said flat out he won’t be a part of the promotion/TV show. Something has obviously changed here whether it is the fact that he has been added to more ROH shows or that he may be getting ready to accept a deal somewhere else whether for TNA or MMA.

Lucha Underground to Add Web Show
The Wrestling Observer stated this week that Lucha Underground is doing a “casting call” for a new web series called “Doritos presents Lucha Underground” next week. It will be a reality show that will air on the internet where 8 luchadors/wrestlers compete with each other with the winner earning a contract with Lucha Underground.

AAA TV Update
There have been a lot of rumors regarding AAA’s TV taping schedule, mostly started by the Wrestling Observer, and a lot had to do with AAA making major changes to their TV format and that they wouldn’t be doing any TV tapings until March. Well, all that changed pretty quickly and will return to taping for TV on 01/23 at Arena Naucalpan. Konnan commented on the issue this past weekend and said that Televisa felt that AAA’s TV shows felt very dated and needed some changes, and said that Televis cited La Parka Jr. still using “Thriller” as his theme as one example of that dated feel. Lord, if that is the case then Televisa must think CMLL feels ancient. Konnan said that Televisa didn’t like many of the venues that AAA uses. He said that AAA will be taping in and around Mexico City a lot more and will be updating their graphics on TV. So thankfully AAA will continue to tape new shows this month.
