Jim Ross Nearly Called Lucha Underground
In his latest JRSBARBQ.com blog Jim Ross revealed that he nearly did some work for Lucha Underground:
I had a chance to do some work with Lucha Underground as they prepare for their season finale taping in a little over a week that will air in August but we couldn’t make the date work. I’m a fan of their product, except the intergender stuff which doesn’t suspend my disbelief, and would have enjoyed doing a project with them but it wasn’t in the cards this time around. I wish them the best of luck nonetheless during these apparent, crunch times for their brand. I am still of the belief that their back stage content is the best in he genre.
Manik on dealing with Perro’s Death
TNA star Manik discussed the death of Perro Aguayo Jr. in a recent interview with V2 Wrestling. He was part of the match when the tragic incident took place:
It bothered me for the first few days and I probably replayed about a minute of time, over and over and over all day and all night for days. I haven’t thought about it much since then. There’s been a definite period of feeling I am still in that ring for a couple of days and then I just got to a point, mostly with the help of all those around me. I usually deal with hardship through my work but in this case that’s what it was. I am usually pretty active on social media as those who follow me know but there was a period where I was just gone for a while and Rey was too. I was stuck in a place for a time and then got to a point when it was a good time to move on with the community. The impact of Perito and everything that happened was being absorbed the right way and people were starting to heal. And rather than letting it linger and doing more damage, I felt that everyone involved began to come together.
