EMLL announced today that they would not be promoting a show during the annual Lucha Fan Expo next month in Mexico City as it is conflicting with their schedule but they would be sending talent to the event to sign autographs and the like. In the past the Expo has paid for the bigger promotions to put on shows but this year they decided not to do that so EMLL made their move although AAA is still doing a TV taping there. This came on the heels of a big press conference where the promotions that would be holding shows at the Expo were all there and some news came out of the event in that Zumbi has decided to rejoin Perros del Mal and the Perros tried their best to distance themselves from La Familia de Tijuana.
EMLL also announced on yesterday that IWGP Heavyweight Champion Hiroshi Tanahashi would be making his return to Mexico on 8/22 and would be staying in the country for about 3 weeks.
The Arena Coliseo shows in Guadalajara will have a new start time as they are moving their shows up from 6:30 PM EST to 12:30 PM EST to avoid conflict with the Chivas futbol matches coming up.
