Earlier in the week, Ric Flair and Eric Bischoff got together for a very interesting podcast interview. The two discussed a lot of things that took place in WCW. Though they didn't always get along back then, they understand one another better now. Flair revealed that the worst thing that Bischoff asked him to do when the president of the company was for Flair to put Konnan over on television, which is sure to spark a response soon.

During a podcast interview with Steve Austin, Vampiro revealed some details about the longstanding backstage heat that he had with Konnan over the years. While they are amicable with one another now, the two of them were heated rivals backstage in WCW. To reduce the real life friction, the two of them decided to sit down and talk for approximately five hours to hash things out.

A rather interesting story line is taking place down in Mexico. During Triplemania, Myzteziz did a heel turn on Rey Mysterio and joined a stable featuring Konnan. The group proceeded to beat down the former world heavyweight champion. He then challenged Mysterio to a mask versus mask match. That should prove to be a huge draw for AAA.

A memorial was held in honor of Perro Aguayo this week. He passed away after an accident in the ring during a match. Konnan, who was the first person to check on Aguayo after the incident, was there in person. Rey Mysterio, however, was not. The belief is that he felt that his presence would be a distraction and might actually upset a couple of people who blame him for the death. Mysterio is currently heading overseas for wrestling show.

Walemania was the place to be this week if you were hoping to see a lot of wrestlers in the same place. Rey Mysterio made his first public appearance since the tragic Perro Aguayo incident. His buddy Konnan was there with him. The two of them were heavily advertised to be there. Three guys who were not scheduled to be there were Scott Hall, MVP and Samoa Joe, who all decided to simply pop up at the event and party with one another.

By now, most people have seen the video of Perro Aguayo dying in the ring during a match involving Rey Mysterio. A select few have started blaming Konnan for repeatedly shaking Aguayo as he laid motionless on the mat. Others, however, have been defending him by stating that the former WCW star was under the impression that Aguayo was simply knocked out. To his credit, he rushed immediately to check on the fallen star.

While his actual funeral will be held later this week in Guadalajara, there have been a couple of ceremonies already held to honor the passing of Perro Aguayo. Konnan was one of the first people on the scene of the tragic incident, and he led a small tribute during the latest Lucha Underground taping in Los Angeles. Several promotions in Mexico have reportedly done a little tribute to Aguayo at their shows as well.
