The speculations have been floating around for the past several weeks, but it is sounding more and more likely that Goldberg is going to be involved in a professional kickboxing match sometimes this year. He stated that he has been training since September and that GLORY Kickboxing has already expressed interest. This is the same promotion that tried to arrange for him to do an exhibition fight with Alberto Del Rio, who suffered an injury.

Morale backstage in AAA is said to be extremely high at the moment. While there are some that are jealous and concerned about their position within the company, it is being said that most performers are pleased to see the return of Sin Cara, Alberto Del Rio and Rey Mysterio.

Some interesting details have come out of Lucha Underground this week. It appears as if the promotion is really wanting to swing for the fences.

As many of you already know, WWE is desperately looking for a star to help them win back fans in Mexico. That might be a bit harder than they were hoping it to be. The feeling right now is that performers in that country are a bit hesitant to sign with the promotion because of how Alberto Del Rio and the original Sin Cara were treated. If two big stars could be treated like that, then the other guys know that they are vulnerable as well.

While Lucha Underground has been actively seeking well known talent to join their roster and increase their presence in the United States, they are having trouble signing performers. Aside from Alberto Del Rio, a lot of wrestlers are holding off on signing a contract with the promotion. One of the reasons being speculated for that right now is the fact that a lot of people are waiting to see what Jeff Jarrett can do with his new GFW promotion this year.

The former world heavyweight champion is also said to be negotiating with other promotions as well.

Once he is no longer contractually obligated to WWE, the belief is that Rey Mysterio will continue his career as an in ring performer. While TNA has yet to be removed as a potential destination, the belief is that he will be venturing over to Lucha Underground because he wants to be part of the movement. Along with the already signed and rejuvenated Alberto Del Rio, Mysterio could help the promotion gain more exposure nationwide.

During a recent interview, Alberto Del Rio explained that he signed with Lucha Underground and AAA out of loyalty. He stated that he chose them over a company like TNA because of what they did for him while he was in a legal fight with WWE. The Spanish promotions were the ones that introduced him to his lawyer. They also were the ones that covered the expenses, which was said to be quite high since they were battling a big corporation.

While the promotion has started gaining a little bit of steam with the internet wrestling community, there is a good amount of disappointment from those involved with Lucha Underground in regards to their ratings. The numbers simply are not as high as management was expecting. The hope is that someone like Alberto Del Rio is going to be able to help move the needle a bit. The company definitely needs more recognizable names.
