Sad days in the world of pro wrestling, especially if you are a fan of the Lucha Libre style.
On tonight’s 75th Anniversary CMLL show in Mexico City, Blue Panther, one of the most accomplished luchadors of the modern era, shockingly lost his mask in the main event against Villano V.
If you think comics nerds get upset when some Silver Age “B” level villain gets a costume change, you should see how Lucha loving wrestling nerds are reacting to this shocking development. Imagine if Batman was killed not by the Joker or Ra’s Al Ghul, but by The Signalman or The Cavalier?
As the Beat would likely say in this situation, “We need to go lie down.” We know there are plenty of comics folks out there who dig the Mexican wrestling (since we used to supply them with tapes back in the day), so our condolences go out to them too.
