Rey Mysterio Officially Leaves WWE
This week the WWE and Rey Misterio Jr. officially parted ways with the WWE moving Rey Mysterio to the “alumni” section of their website and issuing a statement saying: “Rey Mysterio is no longer under contract with WWE.” This is MASSIVE news and could potentially be big news for AAA and Lucha Underground. AAA has made it very clear that they want Rey to return to the promotion as well as compete for the Lucha Underground promotion for quite some time now. There is no word whether or not Rey has a no compete clause, but if his contract simply expired rather than him being released then he wouldn’t have one. Rey hasn’t worked for AAA since 1997 but he did appear for his Hall of Fame induction in 2007, and made a special video presentation at last years TripleMania saying that he would be returning soon. Things are about to get very interesting.
Lucha Underground 02/21 TV Taping Los Angeles, CA Results
– DARK MATCH: Mil Muertes def. Jeff Cobb
1) Fenix def. Kill Shot
2) Fatal 4-Way: Famous B fought Ricky Mandell, Argenis, & Vinny Massaro
3) LU World Title #1 Contenders Tournament Semifinals: Hernandez def. King Cuerno & Cage
4) LU World Title: Prince Puma (c) def. Drago to retain the title!
5) Texano Jr. fought Daivari to a NO CONTEST
6) The Crew (Cortez Castro & Mr. Cisco) def. Angelico & Son of Havoc
7) Cage & King Cuerno def. Hernandez & Prince Puma
8) LU World Title #1 Contenders Tournament Semifinals: Alberto el Patron def. Johnny Mundo
* NOTES *
– Every one in the 4-Way were guys that Pentagon had previously injured. Texano ran out and beat the hell out of all of them causing the no contest and then challenged Daivari due to what happened in the Trios Tournament with him.
– Hernandez pinned Cuerno in the 3-Way. Winner meets winner of Mundo/Patron.
– Stipulation of Puma/Drago was that if Drago lost then he was gone from LU. Hernandez got involved in the match attempting to Spear Puma but Puma moved causing Hernandez to hit Drago leading to Puma retaining his title. Puma wasn’t happy about the way he won and the fans gave Drago a standing ovation before he was escorted out of the Temple. Drago is expected to still be around, maybe with a new gimmick or they will be a story around him getting back in.
– Texano/Daivari was the start of another episode and it really never got going as Texano jumped Daivari before the bell and the fight went all over the building.
– Ivelisse came out during the Crew/Angelico-Havoc match wearing a cast and on crutches.
– During the Semi-Main Hernandez fully turned on Puma hitting him with a nasty Border Toss on the apron leading to the rudos winning.
– Alberto and Mundo had a great match.

– Mundo came out during Hernandez-Patron and turned rudo attacking Patron leading to Hernandez’s win.
– Marty Martinez is a former WWE developmental wrestler, Martin Cassus, and has been running around in the LU crowd screaming about some conspiracy.
