Viva La Raza!: Lucha Weekly
May 8, 2009
By: Josh Boutwell of

Yesterday I e-mailed Adam Martin saying that there was almost NO news or Lineups or results that I could post up this week due to the Swine Flu outbreak, but then today CMLL (as well as a few other shows) announced several lineups for next week and a few more news items broke and all of a sudden I have at least some things I can talk about! Let’s get to it.

Swine Flu Continues to Reek Havoc on Lucha Libre
Once again Swine Flu was the cause of cancelations for Lucha Libre events all over Mexico this week as to my knowledge not a single Lucha event took place all this week, and things don’t look good for the weekend either. CMLL still ‘plans’ to do their weekend shows this week but it’s looking doubtfull while AAA says they will being holding shows again today (I’m not sure if that’s true either), but at least this week Mexico began opening up certain things up this week. I believe that at this point all churches, museums, and theaters are open with everything else expected to reopen next week. I’m not expecting anything until at least Monday.

– Pretty loaded card here for PdM and that Cage Match looks really awesome. Not a single no name guy there but I’m guessing Intocable will be the one to drop his hair in this one, because though he’s not a noname, he is the most least known guy in the match.
