One of the more colorful events at E3 I happened to miss last week was a wrestling match between Dr. Wagner Jr. and El Elegido on the show floor. Wagner claimed victory and the cover athlete spot for the Lucha Libre AAA: Heroes del Ring
game, which is coming to all major platforms later this year. I've never been a huge fan of Mexican wrestling or the WWE stuff we have here in America, but it is nice to see some variety in a genre dominated by the Smackdown titles from the past few years.
