RECAP: CMLL Lucha Azteca 8/23/14 (8/8/14)

Vandal’s Musings #2: Rush vs. Negro Casas, Ernie Ladd & El Minotauro!

Written by Vandal Drummond RUDOS & HEELS! I finally watched the Negro Casas vs Rush Hair vs Hair match earlier today. Damn, the chemistry these two have together is dynamite!

RECAP: Triplemania XXII 8/17/14
