The Damien/Galaxy thing I totally missed, but the Atlantis thing I was just about to ask someone about - I remebering recapping the Atlantis match, and the match where he was called Lizmark Jr. (and faced Emilio!), but I have no idea why he was there or why they changed the name. Did WCW try to start something up with CMLL?

Now a question from a Lucha newbie - where can I see CMLL? This has all sounded really interesting to watch, but I have no idea where to find, buy, tape, etc. these matches.

If you have Galavision, either on DirecTV or cable, it's on Saturdays, usually, but not always in the afternoon.

2 guys, well-versed in the sport, don't know each other's respective languages that well. How do they call spots for each other?
Are there international signals for that sort of situation?

what a maroon. I'm so behind and motivated only by fear of being more behind.

How about Tuesday? Maybe.

I believe the conventional wisdom goes something like this: "Too much action and too many people for only referee to keep track of everything."

A better question would be: Why one tecnico referee (Papa Casas) and one rudo ref (Tirantes)?

One rudo and one tecnico to ensure fairness!

I'm sure the rudos unionized and threatened to walk out if they were not representated in the officating - why should all the referees call things fair and notice all the low blows? That's not represnting the rudos at all.

Either the ref helps them out or they tend to use moves that have similar names in the other language.

Thanks!!

Next question---what was the big deal with Konnan? All I ever saw was him sucking in WCW. I heard, someplace, that he was the "Hulk Hogan of Mexico"--care to explain that whole thing?

Well, when Konnan (el Barbaro) was in AAA, he was "a heartthrob" and often appeared on one of those Mexican soap operas.
