Huge CMLL Press Conference 3/21! Ultimo Guerrero & Atlantis Agree to Mask Match!
Written By Kris Zellner
CMLL held a press conference today at Arena Mexico where a lot of big announcements were made so in order they are:
Titan has suffered a knee injury and has had surgery forcing him to vacate the Mexican National Welterweight Title with no timetable given for a return.
Atlantis & Ultimo Guerrero showed up and had a verbal confrontation ending up with both men agreeing to a mascara contra mascara match that will surely happen on the CMLL 80th Anniversario show in September. CMLL Director Juan Manuel Mar didn’t set a date but it’s pretty obvious to everyone.
The annual Torneo Gran Alternativa will take place from April 12th to April 26th with the youngsters being Hombre Bala Jr./Oro Jr./Sensei/Soberano/Stigma/Bobby Zavala/Camaleon/Disturbio/Espanto Jr./Herodes Jr./Taurus.
The annual Busca un Idolo series will take place from May 17th to June 12th with the participants being Delta/Fuego/Guerrero Maya Jr./Misterioso Jr./Rey Cometa/Stuka Jr./Valiente/Vangelis.
