8) AAA Heavyweight Title: El Mesias (c) vs. Chessman


– This is the biggest show so far of the year for AAA and will be the biggest until Triplemania.

– They are using the Four Way matches in the Rey de Reyes for the 2nd straight year and the 8th year in total (different type tournament were used from 2003 until 2007). I will be doing a little bit of the history of Rey de Reyes the week of the event.

– In the tag match it’s expected that Cibernetico will be returning to team with Charly and a new foreigner will be teaming with Zorro.

– Of course the stipulations in the semi-main are that if Konnan loses then Rivera loses his hair and if Vampiro loses than Roldan loses his hair.


ROH Bringing in Luchadors for Wrestlemania Weekend Shows

Ring of Honor has been talking about bringing in luchadors for quite some time and is finally pulling the trigger for their Wrestlemania weekend shows in Houston this year. ROH will be bringing in Incognito, Magno, Alex Koslov, and Blue Demon Jr. for the weekend shows. Blue Demon Jr. is a legendary luchador and one of the greatest of all time. He is the adopted son of legend Blue Demon and has competed all over Mexico most notably in CMLL. On October 25, 2008 Demon defeated NWA World Heavyweight Champion, Adam Pearce, to become not only the first Mexican to ever win the Championship but also the first masked man to ever win it. Demon continues to reign as the NWA Champion and is also the President of NWA Mexico. Incognito is freelance (INDY) luchador mostly none from his appearence in TNA’s 2006 World X-Cup as part of Team Mexico. Incognito also has competed in AAA in Mexico and CHIKARA in America. He won both the King of the Trios (with El Pantera & Lince Dorado) and the Rey de Voladores (King of Rockets) Tournaments in 2008 in CHIKARA. Magno also competed in the 2006 World X-Cup alongside Incognito and has competed all across Mexico and America as a Freelancer. Alex Koslov is currently a part of D-Generation MEX (along with X-Pac & Rocky Romero) in AAA. Koslov was a long time member of the CMLL roster and was one of their most over foreigners. Koslov competed in the 2008 World X-Cup in TNA as a part of Team Internataional (as he hails from Russia).
