2009 AAA TV Chart

Mexico: 01/18 – if they’re doing Best Ofs, and who knows
US: 01/31

The big news is the debut of the latest Histeria and Psicosis (as well as the new Amnesia, who is a new addition to the Vipers, according to AAA’s Twitter.) I pretend to know a lot of stuff I really don’t know, but pretending I know Mexican copyright law is too much of a stretch. However, I can guess that it probably helps AAA out to have people using these names from time to time (and Alebrije, soon enough), to make it clear they still own the rights to them.

Not that this means they’re around long term. Last year, AAA debuted a new Espectro de Ultratumba at this taping, and he was never seen again. Since then, Mantra has also seemed to do a single appearance and never has made it back to TV. Maybe they have ideas for the Vipers and just didn’t want to use them with the last batch under these names, but let’s wait and see.

At least Black Abyss gets on TV. The other guys could be anyone, from the guys who seem to hang around the edge of AAA’s roster (anyone who was, is or could be a Barrio Boy) to people brought in from DTU, to anyone else who’s just might be starting up with AAA and would be thrilled to be the new Histeria, no matter how it ended for the last one. I would’ve blindly guessed Poder del Norte, but clearly I would’ve been wrong.

I ask AAA for one favor: have a video bit where the new Psicosis meets Nicho. It writes itself.

Not all gimmicks to debut on this annual taping have been one and done. The Psycho Circus debuted on this show two years ago, and have had success and appearances (though a lot of one and few of the other.) They’ve been mostly kept away from the Legion, but this will be at least their second matchup – they beat Jack, Teddy and Kenzo, working as tecnicos for the match. Presumably, this will work similar.

Latin/Mesias probably will do pretty well on Rey de Reyes. It may actually be a better thing if Latin isn’t around all the time until then, because like 12-14 straight weeks of that feud will drive everyone mad. Just don’t know what Mesias does in the meantime. Maybe this main event will lead to something.

FMLL Day 3, titles retained in Mexico, lineups

5) Enfermero Jr. L Solar I, Hijo del Cien Caras, Olímpico, Canek Jr., el Hijo Del Anibal, Super Muñeco, Gran Markus, Huracan Ramirez, Ultramán Jr. [mask]

Update is late today. Solar took Enfermero’s mask. He’s Felip Rojas Elizalde, 25 years a wrestler. He’s said to be the former IWRG Maniacop.

FMLL AAA (SUN) 12/13 Plaza Liberacion, Guadalajara [Informador, Fuego en el Ring, SuperLuchas]
1) Killer Clown, Killer Clown, Monster Clown b Gato Eveready, Laredo Kid, Súper Fly
2) El Elegido, Fabi Apache, Mascarita Sagrada 2007, Pimpinela Escarlata b Cinthia Moreno, El Brazo, Mini Abismo Negro, Polvo de Esterllas

4) Alan Stone, Jack Evans, Marco Corleone b Chessman, Rocky Romero, Zorro
5) Dr. Wagner Jr. & Silver King b El Mesías & La Parka Jr.

Fabi did wrestle, in the Relevos AAA. No one has a picture, which can not be a coincidence.

By the way, people who talk to Estrellita now say she’s going to continue to wrestle.

Rocky replaced Teddy Hart for whatever reason. Clowns were announced as winning match 504.

CMLL (SUN) 12/13 Arena Mexico
1) Ángel Azteca Jr., Ángel de Oro, Ángel de Plata b Bronco, Hooligan, Nitro
2) Fabián el Gitano, Metro, Rouge DQ Euforia, Nosferatu, Skándalo
3) Fuego & Stuka Jr. b Pólvora & Virus [Arena Coliseo TAG]
4) La Sombra, Shocker, Strong Man b Terrible, Texano Jr., Vangelis
5) Místico b Mephisto [MEX LH]

A tecnico night.

Virus & Polvora/CMLL
Virus & Polvora/CMLL

Mephisto had his father Kahoz as cornerman, as he frequently does for singles matches. It did not help. (Sombra stuck around to be Mistico’s corner.)

Fuego & Stuka retained seemed much more likely after they were announced as teaming on Tuesday. Hope this isn’t just a week of doing something with them and no more.

Semimain came down to Strong Man vs Vangelis. Eufora got pinned by Metro in the first fall, and then ripped off Metro’s mask to make sure that wouldn’t happen again. I guess it worked. Somehow, those are the two matches going to 52MX. Must need to keep the Fox people happy this week or something.

Mascarita Divina fractured his tibia and femur in his Guerra de Titanes match, and will be out a very long time. Remember, CMLL’s Nino de Acero fractured just his femur in February and is still recovering.

AAA has photos from AAA checking out their movie.

Des de Ringside interviews Soldado de la Muerte

A blog notes the different danger of slipping past the rail for photos at a lucha libre show. (Particularlly one with Pimpi.)

Box Y Lucha 2952 has Guerra de Titanes results.

More lineups. CMLL no longer lists Tuesday’s show as a fan appreciation prices. You’re paying full price for the Metro main event.

IWRG (THU) 12/17 Arena Naucalpan
1) Chico Che & Eragon vs Arlequin Amarillo & Arlequin Rojo
2) Bushi & Freelance vs Avisman & Gringo Loco
3) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro vs Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro [copa Pirata Moreno]
4) Trauma I vs Ultramán Jr., Xibalba, Exodia, Pendulo, Capitán Muerte, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Zatura, Fantasma de la Ópera, Tóxico [mask, cage]

Because it’s been too long since a mask or a hair was on the line here. This is the Adolfo Moreno tribute show (and also the last Thursday show of the year.)

CMLL (FRI) 12/18 Arena Mexico
1) Delta, Leono, Trueno vs Apocalipsis, Camorra, Escorpion
2) Molotov, Rouge, Sensei vs Arkangel de la Muerte, Inquisidor, Pólvora
3) Astral, Eléctrico, Mascarita Dorada, Pequeño Olímpico vs Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito
4) Sagrado vs Misterioso II [lightning]
5) Hijo del Fantasma, La Máscara, Toscano vs Mr. Niebla, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero
6) La Sombra, Místico, Volador Jr. vs Mephisto, Terrible, Texano Jr.

Very rare to have an atomicos, much less a minis one. They’re clearly setting up something for either Christmas or New Years, and Dorada/Pierrothito seems more likely.

Sombra/Volador vs Terrible/Texano makes so much sense, but this is quick for CMLL to be setting it up.

CMLL (SUN) 12/20 Arena Mexico
1) Delta & Molotov vs Durango Kid & Ramstein
2) Diamante, Pegasso, Rey Cometa vs Artillero, Disturbio, Súper Comando
3) Lluvia, Marcela, Star Fire vs Amapola, La Comandante, Yezca
4) Sagrado, Toscano, Valiente vs Rey Bucanero, Sangre Azteca, Shigeo Okumura
5) La Sombra, Místico, Shocker vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas

Not sure if La Comandate is just La Nazi with a different name (they’re back to calling Rouge “Rush” for no apparent reason this week) or a yet another new female wrestler.

Cesar has his own previews of the CMLL cards.

IWRG (SUN) 12/20 Arena Naucalpan
1) Eragon & Mascara Magnifica vs Maldito Jr. & Samoth
2) Exodia & Freelance vs Fantasma de la Ópera & Hijo del Signo
3) Bushi, Pantera, Suicida vs Tóxico, Trauma I, Trauma II
4) Angelico, Canek, Olímpico vs Hijo del Cien Caras, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Pirata Morgan

Sundays are for Rayo and Canek. And maybe the Traumas are rudos again?

FMLL Results (Day 2, and parts of 1 & 3)

Day 1

Results are a couple posts down.

In talk about Friday’s FMLL show, Mistico says fans don’t really want to see him in cage matches, because he can’t do all his moves and such, but it’s not like they can take down the cage. Perhaps they can stop booking him in cage matches. SuperLuchas has detailed results, explaining the cage match was elimination rules, which makes one wonder why they didn’t just do a cibernetico. This is not an official CMLL title, so we’ll never hear about it again unless FMLL has Mistico defend it next year.

DJ Spectro also has a recap of the show.

Rayo de Jalisco Sr., Gran Cochisse, and Salvador Lutteroth (in memory) were honored before the show, and lesser honors were giving to Satanico and Panther.

Day 2

FMLL (SAT) 12/12 Plaza Liberacion, Guadalajara [DJ Spectro, DJ Spectro (2), ESTO, Fuego en el Ring, SuperLuchas]
1) Láser Boy & Sadico b Demonio II & Super Halcon Jr.
2) Hijo de Solar, Trauma I, Trauma II DQ Barba Roja, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan Jr.
3) Huracan Ramirez, Super Astro, Villano III b Black Terry, Pirata Morgan, Rambo
4) Bobby Lee Jr. & Súper Nova b Coco Verde & Cocolores [semifinal]
5) Fantasma de la Ópera & Oro II b Axxel & Super Muñeco [semifinal]
6) Axxel & Super Muñeco b Coco Verde & Cocolores [mask]
7) El Hijo del Solitario, Juventud Guerrera, Super Crazy b Head Hunter I, Mr. Águila, Oriental

Honored on this day: Ray Mendoza (accepted by Villano II), Pepe Mendieta (accepted by Rambo), Oro (accepted by his father Calavera II), Zandokan (by his sons) and Solitario (by his son.)

One of the Pirates fouled one of the Traumas.

Enfermero Jr. did show up to take part in the mask matches, but Hijo del Solar came to the ring before the match, pointing out his father had just defeated Enfermero Jr. for his mask, so he can’t be putting on the line here. The commission agreed – and put Oro II in the match. Fantasma de la Opera didn’t like teaming with a tecnico but still won.

Before the final match, (a) Coco Rojo turned up, evidently the one who lost to Super Muneco a couple years back. He endorsed Coco Verde and Cocolores as the original people in the gimmick, responding directly to what the other Cocolores had said earlier. This is doubtful, but whatever, it’s Payasos. Coco Rojo ended up putting his hair on the line too. Coco Azul & Coco Amarillo (who knows) ran in too late to help their friend, but still beat down the tecnicos so this is probably a set up to a match for next year or something.

Coco Verde was announced as a Isreal Ramirez, a Mexico City 18 year vet, but did not seem as one. Cocolores was announced as 7 year wrestler Julio Cesar Gonzalez from Pachuca. This was billed as Super Muneco’s 100 mask win.

Day 3

FMLL AAA (SUN) 12/13 Plaza Liberacion, Guadalajara [Informador, Fuego en el Ring]
4) Billy Boy L Aerostar and Sexy Star and Estrellita [hair]
5) Dr. Wagner Jr. & Silver King b El Mesías & La Parka Jr.

Honored on this day: Antonio Pena (Joaquin Roldan), Angel Blanco (Jr. and widow), Eddie Guerrero (Javier Llanes), and Black Gordman (alive! hooray!)

Informador suggests Fabi was not just replaced by Estrellita, but moved to the second match. Fuego’s pictures don’t show her, but they don’t have written results yet. DJ Spectro’s short blurb on the show sides with Fuego. Aerostar took Billy’s hair, despite Hijo de Tirantes helping out.

Main event was changed to a straight match, instead of the parajes increidble. Wagner got away with a foul on Mesias.
