Original Lineup:

AAA TV (SUN) 03/22 Arena Coliseo Monterrey [Roberto Figueroa Jr. @ LMDLL]
1) Billy Boy & Sexi Star vs ? & Cinthia Moreno
2) ? vs ??, ???, ???? [AAA CRUISER]
3) Abismo Negro & El Elegido vs Black Abyss & Electro Shock
4) Silver King vs La Parka Jr.
5) Charly Manson, Mesias, Vampiro vs Chessman, Escoria, Zorro

You’re probably thinking “hey, Scoria in the main event, what a great deal for him (until he’s the guy who gets killed by the tecnicos.” Me, I’m thinking, “oh no, this means Escoria loses the Dome Cage match as well, this man has no luck in multiperson matches.”

Actually, I guess I really should be confused on how Chessman is supposed to be getting along with a member of La Secta, but they probably would prefer I did not.

Would AAA dare headline TripleMania with Silver King and La Parka in mask match, in Mexico City? If it was anyone else under a mask, or even if it was Silver King under a new mask, that would clearly be what they’re setting up here, but Silver King has the little problem of losing his mask in Mexico City once already. An alternative might be a (re)match for the Rey de Reyes giant sword.

Seems like the deal with the cruiserweight tournament is the first four guys who escape the domed cage in Madero advance to a fourway for the title. Don’t know why they’re rushing to get this in so quick, or why you’d set that up with a domed cage. Quick guess is Jack, Lider, Laredo, and Alex.

Roberto doesn’t have the opener listed exactly the way I have it, but this makes more sense. It’d be the first time Sexi Star’s been on TV since last August. She’s local, so maybe that’s why she’s being used. Mystery partner is probably Shiima Xion – anyone else, they’d just advertise (and give away them also not making the four way final, just like Billy.)

This is one of the smaller talent lineups for a show in a while – only 20 wrestlers. Maybe there’s a match to be added?

Next tapings are on the US tour.

03/13: notes

Not a lot going on. Tonight’s lineup:

CMLL (FRI) 03/13 Arena Mexico
1) Sombra de Plata & Trueno vs Apocalipsis & Inquisidor
2) Hooligan, Loco Max, Polvora vs Angel Azteca Jr., Pegasso, Rey Cometa
3) Mascarita Dorada vs Pequeno Warrior [lightning]
4) Maximo, Metro, Sagrado vs Misterioso II, Terrible, Texano Jr.
5) Atlantis, Blue Panther, Ultimo Guerrero vs Averno, Mephisto, Villano V
6) Dos Caras Jr., Mistico, Shocker vs Heavy Metal, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas

Previews: ESTO (is Dos turning rudo), Ovaciones (V5 vs UG). This is mostly a filler show to set up next week (and Sunday, for that fourth match), but Dorada/Warrior could be awesome.

Tentative plan is to do a live chat next week, but it still sounds like no PPV and I haven’t tried listening to EstadoW’s live coverage since the last Villano mask match. Hopefully it’s there tonight or back next week.

Ovaciones also has a story about Black Spirit, still saying LA Park just is letting him use his look (because LA Park has always been thrilled to have strangers wear similar outfits.)

TJ Extreme is mentioned as teaming with Extreme Tiger on an AAA show the night after Rey de Reyes.

AAA talks up former AAA Hall of Fame members. I forgot they were added someone this year, but they’re not going to announce it to Rey de Reyes. They note the votes on the website are picking a final four of Abismo Negro, Elegido, Octagon, and La Parka Jr.. All tecnicos, shocking. AAA also has a random profile of Extreme Tiger, wondering if he’ll join a faction in 2009.

You know, according to what AAA has listed for shows today, Konnan, Elegidio and Parka are working three times. File that under “really bad ideas”. Lots of guys didn’t work yesterday, when a show in Toluca was canceled. AAA seems to be pointing the blame at the local promoter, saying the wrestlers were ready to go (and there’s photos floating around seemingly indicating the guys were there.)
