New Japan Pro Wrestling announced earlier this week that Mistico would finally be making his delayed return to Japan during the August G1 Climax to take place in special attraction matches. Mistico was originally scheduled to return to Japan back in May along with Misterioso II, but due to the Swine Flu outbreak his return to Japan was canceled. No word on who his opponents will be or whether Misterioso II would be going along.

Sarita looked very impressive and got the win with a rollup in a very exciting back and forth match.

Vampiro Breaks His Back
AAA star Vampiro broke his back after falling 15 from his bedroom window late this week after 2 men attempted to rob him. He was sleeping in his Guadalajara home when several men broke into his home, but what’s odd about this is that the police actually caught the men while Vampiro was asleep. When the police rushed into the house is when Vampiro panicked and jumped out of his window. Vampiro broke four vertebrae in his middle/lower back and herniated two discs in his neck. I send my best wishes out to Vampiro in his recovery from this.

AAA Moves “Verano de Escandalo” Location

Kenzo Suzuki Forms new Group
AAA star, Kenzo Suzuki, has formed his own group called Kenzo Team after the official split up of La Legion. Kenzo has formed the group with El Oriental and new comer Sugi.

– In the Main Event Silver King was about to blast Parka with a chair but El Zorro came out and stopped him. He then acted like he was going to hit King with a cane but hit Parka instead to cause Wagner & King to be DQ’ed. The return of the Wagner brothers as a team (courtesy of AAA):

Dos Caras Jr. Debuts with WWE (technically)
This past weekend former CMLL World Heavyweight Champion, Dos Caras Jr., made his debut for the WWE’s developmental territory, FCW (Florida Championship Wrestling), in a match where he was defeated by fellow developmental wrestler Kris Logan. He wrestled under the name “Dos” instead of his name Dos Caras Jr. which brings several interesting points. First, Dos claimed that he would be wrestling under the Dos Caras Jr. name and second, because he claimed he wouldn’t be going to FCW but would instead be going straight to the main roster. Way to lie through your teeth Dos! Also, Dos’ cousin Sicodelico Jr. recently made his debut with FCW wrestling under the El Sicodelico name. No word on whether or not FCW will use them as a tag team.

– Bronco was originally scheduled to face Apollo but he no-showed the event, very classy.
– Umaga and Kennedy were both said to have looked impressive and Kennedy showed no signs of injury.
