Pro Wrestling Guerrilla…

2005_03_31_rey_mysterio.jpgVince McMahon and his roster of WWE RAW and SmackDown! Superstars and Divas are currently in town this week since Wrestlemania 21 takes place this Sunday at Staples Center.

Several personal appearances are happening in and around town to promote the pay-per-view. On Thursday at noontime, on Hollywood Blvd. between Highland and Orange, there will be a free preview of WrestleMania 21, including exhibition matches, and at 7:00 PM at the House of Blues, THQ will host its Third Annual Superstar Videogame Challenge.

I mean, how can WWE truly “Go Hollywood” without even a cameo appearance by arguably their most successful graduate, The Rock?

Which is why for the first time in several years, I won’t even be watching it. Instead, I’ll be checking out Pro Wrestling Guerrilla‘s All Star Weekend this Friday and Saturday at the Hollywood-Los Feliz JCC, featuring a very strong lineup of wrestlers whom many insiders consider to be the best on the independent circuit.
