The big show to end the year. Wagner/Mesias and Konnan/Cibernetico are as previously announced.
AAA’s twitter, when teasing the matches for this show (without actually listing them all yet), said there’d be an AAA vs Legion match for the 2010 Rey de Reyes title shot. Presumably, that’s match 5, though it’s not specified on the poster. This would seem to indicate Dr. Wagner isn’t losing and getting a rematch, though plans can change.
Not sure how good of an idea it is to set a challenger 4 months before the match, when all their post-title shot ideas are “run uneventful trios involving both wrestlers” and “run two uneventful triso matches, where each title match participant get to win a match.” Not the most compelling TV.
Of the 8, Rocky, Alex and Teddy have never been treated like contenders to the heavyweight title. Octagon in a 10-15 singles match at this point in his career would be a very bad idea. La Parka too, but that hasn’t stopped him before. There’s no telling if Latin Lover will still be around in March – he’s here and gone a lot, and you’d want the champion to be full time. Chessman got the shot last year at Rey de Reyes. I can’t see them doing Mesias/Chessman again, but they have set up a Wagner/Chessman match. Zorro has been completely marginalized since TripleMania, but they could always throw him in against either guy.
Fabi Apache and Sexy Star finally have their blow off match. When AAA brought in Rain, Jennifer Blade, and everyone else, it seemed like they were just going to let this drift away without resolving it. Instead, those women come off as a pointless digression thus far (why waste all that time on them without doing a big match? – they should’ve come in after this feud was done.) Aero and Billy are supposed to be in their respective corners, and all four of those people are supposed to be in hair/mask match just two days later in Guadalajara at the FMLL show. Probably going to be a bad weekend for one couple.
AAA should’ve taken the tag team titles of Lider & Nicho a long time ago, but they haven’t, so it’s fruitless to hope that they’ll do it now. Jack & Marco seem like an interesting team, it gives Marco something to do, and it breaks Jack out of facing the same guys every week.
Second match is usual WagnerManiacs vs AAA trios.
Opener is listed as a battle royal with the AAA minis title on the line. Mini Charly Manson is champ, but I suppose he makes up for not defending the belt in a year and a half by defending against 7 people at once. Math sorta works with that.
After this, it’s just the annual last taping of the year in Chilpanicgo, and they’re done until January.
