To think that at this point Seth Rollins has been a part of the WWE now for almost 5 years is crazy, because I still remember the days of him being ROH World Champion back in 2009. Now I know some may say that's nothing I remember when he...... but that is my point it is shocking to think that Rollins was once a fledgling young kid on the Indy circuit and now is the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Think about that for a second Seth Rollins formerly known as Tyler Black is the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Well, for right now let me take you back to the year 2005 which is right around that time that Seth or Tyler began in the Wrestling and he showed even though that he had an eye for finding things to make him unique. Like the time when he moon-saulted off a fat fan during a match. Don't believe me, just watch the video:
I have done a post like this in a few weeks, but I have been waiting for the right to post this for a while as I didn't want to post it too far in advance. Like I always say the Indy wrestling doesn't receive enough attention wrestling fans as most people think that wrestling begins and ends with the WWE, which is sad. As most people who think that way give up on Wrestling if they don't like what they see on WWE TV, instead an Independent company a chance.
Now on to the company that helped put Reseda, CA on the map and if you don't know Reseda then you have never heard of PWG (Pro-Wrestling Guerrilla.) Keeping this simple as I learned very early that I can sing the praises of this company all I want, but that doesn't you'll attend the show. If you're looking for a company that gives you the best matches with great athletes, and provide an incredible atmosphere then PWG is your company!!!! So if you’re in the San Francisco or LA area, then stopover in Reseda, CA for a Great Wrestling Show.

The sad fact about the world we live in is that there are certain people who will do anything to benefit them whether they are looking out for their bottom line or trying to increase viewership it doesn't matter. Some people don't have the ethical standard to do research and get all their facts together before going along with a story. Even though I have been at this for a while I have been guilty of this on at least one occasion. Fact of the matter is that when people don't keep their ethics it gives other members of the same field a bad name. This isn't just in the wrestling site field, it is even in mainstream media where people don't do their research and have all the facts before going along with the story.
In either aspect, it is wrong and shameful to do, especially when the stories people run with are either unproven or false facts about an unfortunate tragedy. Though in an earlier post I may have expressed what I thought happened at the AAA event over the weekend, well I was wrong to even give my opinion as I should have waited until all the information was released to formulate my opinion. However, all I need to add anyone who formulated an opinion about the situation without all the facts and without doing research should be ashamed. I at least did my research before posting about the topic, including gathering facts on the situation. All I am saying is please just either leave the situation alone or at least have knowledge of the situation before commenting on it.
Below is a very opinionative statement and may not appropriate for all readers:
Look, I respect that not everyone will see what happened in the same light that I do, but to think that some people out there actually think that anyone is in any way responsible for what happen to Perro is sickening. This was nothing more than an extremely tragic accident and was absolutely nobody's fault. The part of this that really bothers me is the idea of mainstream media not doing the f**** due diligence and proving all of their facts before running with a story. Because that is their job to prove facts before running the story and if they don't do that then what good are they if they spread unproven, lies instead proving the story first.
I ask those who aren't mature enough to accept the fact that not everybody will have the same opinion as them and get all b*** hurt when someone doesn't agree with them to read this first. If you're one of these people please accept the fact that this may not agree with your thought process, but that doesn't mean it's wrong and if you can't accept it then nobody forcing you to read this post!!!
As site here and ponder the right words to say about what happened at the AAA event last night in Tijuana, MX. Last night should have been a great night for AAA as for the time since 1995 when he left for ECW, Rey Mysterio was returning to the ring.
I still am looking for the right words say and I can't truly find the words because for the first time in 5 years that I have been writing I actually don't what to say. I pride myself on knowing a tremendous amount about the pro-wrestling business, but I don't know a lot about Mexican Wrestling. When talking about the history of wrestling south of the border family names come to mind like Santo, Guerrero, Guerrera, Mysterio, Aguayo, and others. The one thing I know about Mexican is that it usually more often then not runs in the family where if the father does so does the son. During a tag team match last night involving Rey Mysterio, Manik, & Perro Aguayo Jr. Something happened to Perro following a bump onto the ropes where he went limp and lost conciseness. Many thought he just a concussion after landing wrong on a bump to the floor or maybe he re-injured an old injury, something out of the talents control caused this tragedy. This is something very difficult to write about and it was even harder to watch this proves that though many believe that wrestling is a joke sadly this shows why it shouldn't be taken as a joke.
It is never easy to lose a member of the pro-wrestling family especially under such horrible and tragic circumstances. I have said in the past that the hardest thing about being a fan of this business is when we loss our favorite stars. From all of us here at Wrestling Express I would like to extend my deepest condolences to the friends and family of Perro Aguayo Jr. Perro was only 35 years old and still in the prime of his career.
Rest in Peace
Perro Aguayo Jr
Gone But Never Forgotten
In my opinion the video is not meant for all viewers therefore I will not be embedding it on the site and instead I will be placing a link to the video below.
This is a new concept I want to try as a way to diversify the content on this site and include more things from the Independents. So ever so often I will be choosing a new video to post from an indy company. As Bryan Meyers aka Curt Hawkins, will say this is a knock off of Kevin Steen's Weekend Escapades. Which is basically Bryan allowing us to get a look to see what happens behind the scenes at Indy Wrestling shows; also what the travel to them is like, much like what Kevin Steen did in his Weekend escapade YouTube series. Instead of spoiling it, I will let you all take a look and I hope you enjoy!!!
At the age of 18 with his Uncle by his side Oscar Gutierrez officially got his first big break in wrestling as he was apart Mexico's newest wrestling company Asistencia Asesoría y Administración aka AAA. This company actually was founded in 1992 by Antonio Pena when Pena broke away from CMLL to form his own promotion. Rey's Uncle who was the original Rey Mysterio helped Rey get a spot in AAA and establish himself in wrestling as during Rey's first few years with AAA he would actually team with his Uncle. During his time in AAA Rey would establish what in a way would become somewhat of a career long feud with Juventud Guerrera and would actually team his Uncle against Juventud and Juvi's dad Fuerza Guerrera.
Much like his Uncle before him Rey would carry on the Mysterio name in AAA winning the Mexican National Trios Title on one occasion and winning the Mexican National Welterweight title also on one occasion. Though his achievements in AAA don't provide the longest list he still became one of the top stars within the company and would go on to be inducted into the AAA Hall of Fame in 2007.
For the last year at least Rey has been wrapped in a contract dispute with his now former employer and Rey is free and clear to do whatever or go wherever he wants to. It didn't take long for Rey to make up his mind as a few days ago he chose to make his return to AAA the same company he got his first big break in and the same company he hasn't worked for in almost 20 years. Rey will be making his return to AAA at the May 23rd event titled "International Tournament of Lucha Libre." It seems like this show is some sort of trios tournament with AAA teams vs trios from around the world sort of like Chikara's King of Trios, but maybe a little different.
