Source: Wrestling Observer NewsletterSangriento, a masked wrestler hailing from Tijuana, Mexico, made his TNA Wrestling debut on this week's episode of TNA Xplosion as he competed in a Three-Way Match against Chris Sabin and Jay Lethal. The masked luchador pinned Lethal after hitting the former X Division Champion with a springboard cutter.
