AAA #849 (09/06)

taped 08/08, aired 09/06

I watched Alas de Oro at least 4 times due to various boring reasons. It’s not a match you need to watch four times and even one was plenty. It’s disappointing compared to last year – there was no big dive train spot, there was not a lot of time before the eliminations, and the n hey were as rapid fire as possible. The match didn’t have any time to get anyone over except the finalists, and even that didn’t work so well when Aerostar blew his finish.


I’m sure they were heading to Jack/Aerostar even if Aerostar hits his move (I think Jack kicked out and has been taught to not end matches on blown moves, but it might have been part of the angle), but at least they used the controversy instead of pretending it didn’t happen.

5 matches in 90 minutes, all clipped up more than even usual AAA standards, was really absurd. The only match that had an any storyline impact was the minis tournament, Alas de Oro, and the main event (presumably, they ran the mystery man angle with a plan to resolve at one point, though they’ve clearly forgotten it now. They should’ve just saved the others for another week instead of repeating Alas de Oro.

10/06: Coliseo, GDL, AAA notes, Mistico having more surgery?

CMLL (SUN) 10/05 Arena Coliseo [ovaciones]
1) Metálico & Tigre Blanco b Arkangel & Hooligan
2) Fabián el Gitano, Leono, Stuka Jr. b Ephesto, Vangelis, Virus
3) Damián 666, Mephisto, Mr. Águila b Grey Shadow, Sagrado, Volador Jr.
4) Loco Max b Tony Rivera [hair]
5) Blue Panther, Dos Caras Jr., Dr. Wagner Jr. b Atlantis, Black Warrior, Mr. Niebla

Loco Max beating Tony for Loco Max’s first hair is an upset, but not as a big surprise. They tipped off the finish with the note posted on announcing this match. Even if they didn’t, Loco’s lost his hair plenty but always to young guys who they’re trying to get more attention. Rivera’s long stop being a young guy. This seems just so next time Loco is in a hair match (which probably won’t be that long), they can point out he hasn’t lost every single one of them.

I believe Shadow listed as working is a typo on Ovaciones part, but might as well for confirmation. I suppose he could’ve finished up quick there and booked it to AAA just to say he was in both places on the same night (and then would they show it on FSE? Yea, probably.)

SuperLuchas has more on the Rocky Romero jump. Konnan had been talking to him about it for a bit, and Romero jumped because he didn’t feel CMLL was supporting him.

CMLL (SUN) 10/05 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [MT]
5) Lizmark Jr. DQ Marco Corelone

Match was worked around a knee injury to Corelone’s left knee. Sounded more like a story point for the match (and a run thru for the hair match) and not a injury that’ll take Corelone out, but it’s not totally clear. Corelone snuck in a fall with a small package, but Lizmark got him with a half crab in the third fall. Marco gave, gave some more, and Lizmark wasn’t interested in letting go, so Corelone won by DQ.

Box Y Lucha has also sorts of fun teasers for this week’s edition (#2891)
– Mistico is apparently heading back to the operation room, which sounds like he’s going to be out more
– Dos says he’s NOT vetoed from CMLL, which conflicts with what he just said two days ago.
– The Goddess interview makes it sound like she’s already lost her mask (a week early?)
– Paco Alonso is quoted, saying he doesn’t care about WWE TV coming in.

LuchandoLibre has clips of the NWA Mexico show. SuperLuchas updates injuries on the show: Super Muneco is visiting a chiropractor. Blue Demon is in a neck brace, and he and Dandy have a meeting at the DF Box Y Lucha commission tomorrow. SoloLuchas now has it’s notes on the semimain and main and

Al Filo del Ring talks to TVC Deportes about their lucha coverage (they signed a 2 year contract with WWE for RAW, and a 5 year contract with CMLL to show Arena Puebla) and Groon XXX (who says both AAA and CMLL want him and are just waiting for him to say yes, but he wants to wait six more months.) If WWE was willing to pay him what he’s worth and put him top, Groon says he’d go there too.

El Sol de Cuautla previews Tuesday’s shows. I’ll do that…Tuesday.

2008 AAA TV Chart
Projected Air Date (#8570
Mexico: 10/12
US: 11/02

There were multiple, colliding big angles. X-Pac opened the show, attempt to introduce D-Generataion-X, only to be interrupted by Konnan. Konnan wanted to know why X-Pac returned and turned on the Legion, a reasonable question, but never got the answer as they both were interrupted by Prez Roldan on the big screen. (Yes, this is WWE RAW.) Roldan wanted to let Konnan he was paying him back for breaking his car’s windows a few weeks by doing the same to Konnan’s. And that was that for the opening segment, but Konnan wasn’t going to let this show end without getting revenge. So, after the main event (where Parka beat Jack with a powerbomb), Konnan stole the urn of Antonio Pena’s ashes and ran away. SoloLuchas confirms this really did happen.

The semimain was listed as an atomicos, but turned into a trios with Espiritu just interfering whenever (a lot like TripleMania, actually.) Rudso won with a distracted ref and a foul.

Stones (“Los Sexy Boys”) beat Hermandad despite chairs, tables and ladders coming into play. After the match, X-Pac came back out to introduce the new member of his group – Grey Shadow! Who unmasked to reveal himself as Rocky Romero.

Pirata Sr. stole Elegido’s mask and rolled him up for the win.

The Billy/Gato/whoever trio hit a snag against the Guapos. Decnnis beat Gato clean.

It didn’t make sense for Mini Abismo to be left out of the minis match, since the only feud is him and Mini Charly. So Mini Abismo replaced Jerrito, but his team still lost when Mini Charly beat Mini Kenzo.

Diario Cambio article says 10,000 people showed up.

Next taping is Queretaro on Friday. Pena Memorial show isn’t until the Friday after, so Konnan may have those ashes for a while.
