Axel stated on Tuesday that the courts have ruled in his favor regarding the name Nieto del Santo and he is now able to use it without Hijo del Santo trying to stop him. Axel said that Santo falsified records trying to show that he owned the name but the courts ruled that those documents were fake and that any son or grandson of Santo could use the name which could bring some confusion soon. Hijo del Santo’s own son has been training lately as Santo Jr.
EMLL had a mini press conference yesterday where they announced that Tiffany was going to work for REINA in Japan for a month starting on 8/22 which is a way for her to work while growing her hair back out.

The big story though is that Jose Luis Feliciano announced the Generacion 2012 list which is a group of young guys they bring to the forefront every year and they are the following:
Akuma 3:16 (Demus’ brother)
Espanto Jr. (yet another one but this is the son of the original Espanto Jr.)
Guerrero Negro Jr.
