Another Star Bails on CMLL

It’s been a rough year for CMLL and it’s getting worse. This week, just a week after Hector Garza left the promotion, Texano Jr. has now left CMLL. Texano Jr. has been one of the younger guys who’s been focused on more over the last few years and is part of the TRT group with El Terrible & Rey Bucanero. He and Terrible have been consistently one of the better tag teams in all of Lucha Libre, and are currently the Occidente Tag Team Champions but those belts are rarely defended anyway. Texano Jr. was a part of the Perros del Mal group when they were previously in CMLL and his brother, Super Nova, works for the Perros del Mal promotion currently so that is the obvious assumption of where Texano will go. AAA is also being rumored.

Panther Power
Recently CMLL added the legendary star, Blue Panther, to the creative team which has received mixed reviews to say the least due to him being very old school in his views on Lucha Libre (something CMLL constantly is referred to as being too much of).

CMLL Holds 6th Bodybuilding Contest

Sin Cara Seriously Injured

At this past Sunday’s WWE “Survivor Series” PPV Sin Cara ruptured his patellar tendon on a dive early in the match. It’s not really clear whether he hurt it as he was setting up to dive or on the landing (as it really didn’t look like he landed hard). Cara is expected to be out for at least 6-9 months following surgery and rehab. This is easily the most severe injury of Sin Cara’s career; with really the worst injury he’s had thus far being a broken collar bone a few years ago. A ruptured patellar tendon is when the tendon that connects the patella to the tibia in the knee ruptures or tears. The most recent injury I can compare this to would be Arizona Cardinals Tailback Ryan Williams (who played in college at Virginia Tech). He suffered the same injury way back in August and has been forced to miss the entire 2011 season to rehab the injury.
