As readers of SUPER FIGHTS will already have noticed, the coverage for the World Wrestling Council have declined in recent weeks. The reason for this is that the company is in a climate of anxiety, mainly due to the sudden recruitment of Mystic by WWE.
Unrest in the ranks of the company has been cleverly manipulated by some people associated with another magazine to create an atmosphere of paranoia. The leaders at CMLL have been told that SUPER FIGHTS is the root of their problems, specifically in the case of Mystical. They argue that since Super Fights magazine has exclusive contracts with Mystic after he was signed by WWE, citing the “evidence” that the news of their engagement was announced exclusively for us.
There was also anger over the cover of our issue 405, since it appears Ultimate Warrior with a quote: “Mystic, do not forget me.” After the cover shot was released, the fighter was summoned to the offices of CMLL, they feel that the Warrior Mystic is seeking fighters to move with him to WWE.
But was the Warrior really called from Mystic to enter WWE? If you read the interview, you will realize that it is not true. Most of the statements make clear that Guerrero is committed to the CMLL, with shirt wearing and tattooing.
Right there at the end of the discussion, the words are just as Guerrero said. When Israel Velazquez questioned: “You have had a rivalry with Mystic, what can you say now that he’s in WWE? Wrestler responds: “May God help me and Mystic forget me not.”
Is it wrong to say that Warrior? It is very reasonable. The fact is that his words were published as is, without further alterations in grammar and syntax corrections, as in our publication policy. Perhaps he meant that Guerrero does not want to forget that in Mexico, Mystic left an opponent while there was a large gatherings. Perhaps he meant something else. Who knows? The fact is that those were his words.
The problem is that Ultimate Warrior denies having said this, and says that this part of the interview was invented. SUPER FIGHTS does not practice journalistic ethics.
We make this clarification because many readers have asked about the issue, and they deserve our respect and consideration.
