Finally the big day arrived, the beginning of the first day of filming for our graphic novel adaptation of, “Azteq versus The Lonely Woods Prowler”. This past June 10th, during the VIP Wrestling event “Hard to Kill” en Arlington, Texas had a stellar line-up, including a match between Ray Rowe (Ring of Honor) versus Pentagon jr. (Lucha Underground) and we filmed our first scenes.
