Back again with more posters for this week and beyond. If you find some more, feel free to let me know via facebook or twitter. Email is fine as well. It will be updated if its something that lands during that time frame, if its after that, I’ll just put it up for the next week.

This Sunday, August 26th in LA there will be a reunion show hosted by Rey Misterio Sr. that will feature LA lucha stars from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s!

Guadalajara has Mistico and La Mascara teaming up against Mephisto and Euforia.
DTU has two upcoming shows on Friday and Sunday. Both shows feature Dragon Gate’s Ricochet.
