2009 AAA TV Schedule
Projected Air Date (#887)
Mexico: 05/03
US: 05/23

Order of elimination in the main event went Vampiro, Zorro, and then Electroshock lost to Wagner. Mesias came out post match to argue he was the real champ.

Tecnicos might have won, if not for La Hermandad running in to attack Marco. That’s Marco’s first TV loss, and they’re hyping this as win 300 for the Clowns.

Jack and Extreme Tiger had a double pin. Assuming this eliminates them from the tournament, the final would be between the winners of Nicho & Alex and Laredo & Alan. I’d think that’d mean we’re getting Nicho vs Laredo, but they’re not as concerned about rudo vs tecnico finals.

Guapito was back with the Metrosexuals, helping them win their match. Maybe they’ll air a vignette to explain why they’re hitting the reset button on that turn? Decnnis pinned Pimpi, which may mean something. It sounds like Black Abyss was just there, and they didn’t have any special angle to mark his return.

Argenis was the mystery luchador for the tecnico side, not that it seems to have mattered much. Tito beat Aerostar, with Super Fly walking on his partners near the end of the match (though I’m not clear if it’s before or after the finish – he still seems to be going rudo either way.)

Sagrada beat Abismo to win the minis match. The story here was after the match, where Guaptio showed up to invite all the minis into his new group: Los Chihuahueños del Mal, complete with familiar t-shirts. There was a joke about getting TV in here as well. Mini accepted.

No mention of Latin Lover on AAA’s website. They’ve not mentioned the parody skits the last couple of times in the show report, but maybe the minis bit was it.

Next taping is 04/30 in Aguascalientes.

04/22: Mexico, Monterrey, Zorro


CMLL (TUE) 04/21 Arena Mexico [ESTO]
1) Rayo Tapatio I & Rayo Tapatio II b Apocalipsis & Semental
2) Angel Azteca Jr., Angel de Oro, Angel de Plata b Caligula, Messala, Polvora

3) Bam Bam, Mascarita Dorada, Shockercito DQ Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Warrior
4) Black Warrior, Lizmark Jr., Misterioso II b HIjo del Fantasma, Sagrado, Valiente
5) La Mascara, Mistico, Volador Jr. b Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto

Main event ended with Mistico and Averno left alone in the ring and you know how that goes. Funny how Mistico remembers to do La Mistica against Averno, but seems to have forgotten to use it again Negro. ESTO mentions the rudos were screwing around outside the ring during the second fall and actually got counted out by Tigre Hispano, but they all just ignored it (because that wasn’t supposed to be the finish.)

Shockercito faked a foul to win the minis match.

indy (TUE) 04/21 Arena Coliseo Monterrey [RFC]
2) Xtreme Dragon b Kaientai, Sick Boy
3) Memo Valles & Sangre Chicana Jr. b Corazon Adictor & Maldad Adicta
4) Sergio Romo Jr. & Silver Star b Difunto I & Mongol Chino Jr.
5) Rey Sagitario b Androide [hair]

Intersting story of the day: While reposting Angel’s AAA exit interview with Box Y Lucha, they mention Pimpinela & Zorro are rumored to be leaving. Pimpi probably will be scrambling for dates on the indies with most of the people who’ve left, but Zorro might be (and should be) of use to CMLL. Zorro’s wrestled in CMLL in 1999, after the dead of Promo Azteca, and would be fun to see mixed in with top of CMLL (which still seems stale despite Dos’ turn.)

Anyway, Angel says he’s leaving AAA on good terms and will not be prevented from using his name (though he might change his look.) He’s hoping to get to CMLL.

Other Angels who appear to be jumping: Dark Angel wrestled a dark match at last night’s TNA taping, losing to Awesome Kong. It sounds like a tryout match, which they’ll ignore if they get on TV. TNA puts it’s dark/b-show matches on it’s website, so perhaps this’ll turn up. SuperLuchas is all over the photos from the show, of course.

Silver King answers back to el Fantasma (though the article strangely says Hijo de Fantasma), complaining that he’s banned when Rey Misterio can wrestle with his mask on despite losing it, as well as unnamed wrestlers in Arena Mexico. Who’s he takling about here? I’m going to be banging my head off my desk when someone reminds me, but all I can come up with is Hooligan (who remasked in about 4 years and 8 months, but is okay now.)

Anyway, Silver King says at one point that he doesn’t need a mask, but then complains that they let him wear a mask in Japan with no problem and Mexico’s being unfair. He also drops Fantasma’s real name, which is not the way to win friends and influence people. Silver King says the mask is “pure marketing”, and banning him from wearing it is like banning people from long hair or makeup.

Super Fly claims to AAA’s website that Laredo turned on him first, and it’ll be up to the fans if he becomes a rudo.

Ovaciones has a big profile of Bengala, who claims he’s related to no current wrestlers and says he’s making his debut on Sunday.

Desde Ringside interviews Martha Villalobos and Martha Villalobos during a local show.

Paraiso de la lucha libre has photos from the show to honor Dinamico I. So does mortis666 @ box y lucha.

DJ Spectro also reposted the Valiente’s lost 20 KG (44 lb) and hopes to lose 5 more article.

DTU is in Monterrey for their show Sunday.

Cesar rates Mistico, Sagrado (who’s been in CMLL six years and has had zero noable feuds – that is CMLL) and La Sombra.

Dos Caras Jr. has altered his look to resemble Toluca’s Diablo Rojas.

SuperLuchas is selling Arkangel masks.

Ohtani’s Jacket watches Terrible Cerebros vs the Navarros from 04/16/09 (which was apparently the title match), while Segunda Caida watched the 04/02 IWRG show.

The Milwaukee Decider talks to the promoters of Saturday’s Monto Lucha show.
