News and Notes 03/26/2015



PERRO AGUAYO JR., DIED “ALMOST INSTANTLY” ACCORDING TO AUTOSPY REPORT
- The autopsy report of Perro Aguayo Jr., revealed that the Mexican lucha
lire star died “almost immediately” of his injuries he suffered in the
ring, suffering three fractured vertebrae and was dead by the time he was
transported to the hospital, said Gilberto Cota Alanis, deputy prosecutor
for Baja California state. The report was carried by the Associated Press.
Prosecutors have opened an investigation, and Cota Alanis said the other
wrestlers involved in the match would be questioned about the incident as
well as Wrestling and Boxing Commission officials who handled Aguayo's
body and the medical workers who attended to him. The whole incident
started when Aguayo Jr., received a missile dropkick and then was thrown
out of the ring via a hurricanrana. Once he came back in the ring, looking
already a bit groggy, Aguayo Jr., was hit with another dropkick that set
him up for the 619 but that was apparently the final blow that lead to his
death. 


TNA LANDS BIG TELEVISION DEAL IN BRAZIL
- TNA announced today that it has signed a new television deal in Brazil
to bring Impact Wrestling for the first time ever to the country on the
free-to-air sports broadcaster Esporte Interativo (EI). Impact Wrestling
will first air on Esporte Interativo every Sunday at 10PM and fans will
also be able to watch TNA’s monthly PPV and One Night Only events, as well
as TNA Xplosion. Xplosion will broadcast every Monday at 7:45PM.

Programming will air in Portuguese, thanks to a dedicated Brazilian
announce team. TNA will join global brands including the NFL and the UEFA
Champions League on Esporte Interativo, which can be seen by 105 million
people in Brazil and is also the home of MMA in the country. Turner
Broadcasting, the television arm of the American media group Time Warner,
recently became the sole owner of the network. TNA President Dixie Carter
said, “To partner with Esporte Interativo, a major Brazilian network with
a reach of more than 100 million people, is another significant chapter in
the incredible TNA international story and an important milestone as we
look to expand across South America.”


EVA MARIE TO HOST THE HALL OF FAME CEREMONY
- PWInsider.com is reporting that Jerry “The King” Lawler will be given
the day off on Hall of Fame night as his hosting gig has just been given
to someone else. For the first time ever, a Diva will be the MC for the
evening, and the honor has been given to Eva Marie. Only four other
individuals have hosted the Hall of Fame ceremony since 2005. Jerry “The
King” Lawler has done the show six times, Todd Grisham twice, Gene
Okerlund once, and in 2008, Grisham and Okerlund hosted the show together.
The Total Divas star is certainly not the most popular Diva among fans
mostly due to her inexperience in the ring despite being in the company
for two years already. She was introduced during the first season of Total
Divas and has remained one of the cast members ever since. WWE fan and
celebrity Maria Menounos will be returning to host the red carpet event
which will kick off an hour before the ceremony at 7PM EST.
