Posted it in the Puro section but, yeah, very disappointing news.

He never managed to even wrestle a match so it seems he flew in with the injury and was not medically cleared upon arrival. Of all the wrestlers to replace him with, though, why choose Shocker?!

I was looking forward to seeing him in Mexico an it's sad.

What do you have against Shocker? A man is in his 40s and can still wrestle better than some wrestlers, who are 20 years old.

The saying "average at best" fits no one better than Shocker.

Thankfully he won't be in the match I was most excited for but, even then, Marco Corleone isn't exactly good, either. What a way to take some truly exciting matches and then make them completely unremarkable with mid to low-tier talent.

The whole older wrestlers cannot go ideology in Mexico doesn't really wash, anyway. Look at Casas, Panther, Nevarro, Black Terry and almost all the legends still going. They still have it. For someone with as much in-ring experience as Shocker, he's not very good. Give them a couple of years and I'm almost positive the younger guys will be leaps and bounds ahead.

Mascara Dorada is 23 and La Sombra is 22. They're pretty damn good and someone I'd much rather see wrestling than Shocker.

Devitt desperately needs to an extended break. I swear he's been carrying injuries and knocks for well over a year now and he isn't putting out many great matches for the risk.

Don't worry they have a good 20-30 years left in their careers.

Just curious, how did everyone get into lucha?

I didn't start seriously getting into wrestling until about 1999 (I had casually watched since 1996) and while WWF was my favorite promotion, I just loved wrestling all around which led me to WCW, ECW (I remember buying as many tapes as I could), any local indies and then lucha. I started watching FMW in 2000 but didn't get serious about puro until 2006.

Back to lucha, I had come across the Spanish channels on DirecTV and they were playing CMLL at the time. Like most wrestling fans, I didn't take it very seriously but I was entertained. It was a completely different style but unlike other wrestling fans, I didn't have trouble understanding it. I loved the mat work (in the good matches) which was different then what I was seeing in the U.S. wrestling and the dives were spectacular. Unlike puro or indy wrestling, finding a ton of lucha was very difficult to find unless you were buying comps. I didn't really start following it until about 2009 when I started to look elsewhere for wrestling since I was getting burnt out on American indy and Puro.

Since then, I've been looking for tons of 80s and early 90s lucha which is a pretty tough feat but I've found some truly golden stuff.

Seriously folks, don't overlook Santanico.
