VIDEO & THOUGHTS: CMLL’s New Luchador for 2013
This past week CMLL (via Alexis Salazar’s youtube page) posted a video announcing a newcomer set to debut in 2013. They did the dark lighting type video (maybe they were interrogating this guy!) that they’ve used in the past when announcing someone new debuting in CMLL. This mystery luchador from the looks of the video has a well-built physique. I’ve been told that his agility is quite impressive for someone with his physique. So, the question is who is it?
There have been a few names thrown out there. Several former AAA wrestlers were initially mentioned. Relampago recently made an appearance at a CMLL event. He was part of the bodybuilding contest were he finished second in the student division. It was later revealed that he was training in Arkangel’s class. I don’t think its him because Relampago wasn’t tall and he has a bunch of tattoos. Decnnis, who I think CMLL should add to the roster, is too small to be that guy as well. Extreme Tiger’s stated already he left AAA to wrestle independently in Mexico and get more work internationally.
I thought for a bit that maybe it was IWRG’s La Roca who was briefly in CMLL’s wrestling school, but from checking on him, it seems he’s gone from there. He fits the physique part, but he was darker skinned and wasn’t known for being agile.
Could it be someone already on the roster re-gimmicked? That’s possible. As thecubsfan pointed out, its also possible that the guy in the video might not even be the actual guy who ends up debuting. That’s been done in the past.
So we all wait in anticipation to see who this is. While we wait, we can come up with names of past legends who CMLL feels compelled to copy.
