(colosseti @ SML, el vagabundo @ box y lucha) The big news wasn’t the title match, but the run-ins after the third match. Ex-AAA wrestlers (and occasional Perros del Mal wrestlers) Psicosis, Histeria, Maniaco, Alebrije and Cuije attacked Sombra, Fantasma and Mascara after the terecera, Cuije even taking out Monito! Mistico, Porky and Strong Man ran out for the save, but were attacked by Averno, Terrible & Texano, out for the next match. The ex-AAAs had arrived in a black SUV, and jumped back in to escape before anyone else caught up with them. I wonder if Hijo de LA Park was the getaway driver this time too?
It’ll be interesting to see where this goes from here. I’m betting multiman cage match in Puebla, because that seems to be the idea CMLL is stuck on this month. Running the angle in Puebla probably means it’s a Puebla-only angle. The Perros often talk about how everyone in their company is free to work wherever they want, so they should be fine with this (and probably happy for the extra attention.) The other way is interesting; might there be some thawing between CMLL and the Perros? It’s not the guys wearing the Perros shirts, which would mean a whole lot more, but CMLL could’ve still put the veto down if they wanted nothing to do with this group.
Dorada beat Dragon clean to retain the title. Semimain ended with Mistico & Averno in the ring, and now it’s only laziness stopping me from flipping him back green. I can not believe they’re hitting the reset button, but maybe they’ll hit it so hard that we can get the Black Warrior feud again. Taichi fouled Fantasma for a two fall loss; Fantasma already hurting played into the attack.
AAA (SUN) 04/11 Arena Coliseo Monterrey [RFC]
1) Darling Boy b Pedro Navajas, Babe Fox
2) Angel Dorado Jr., Babe Rap, Sky b Androide, Lover Boy, Rey Sagitario
3) Cuervo, Escoria, Ozz DQ Golden Boy, Rey Demonio Jr., Simbolo
4) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown b Rió Bravo, Tigre Cota, Tito Santana
5) Extreme Tiger, Jack Evans, La Parka Jr. b Chessman, Joe Lider, Sobredosis
After the tecnicos won clean, Parka challenged Chessman to a mask vs hair match. I guess it never hurts to ask.
Psycho Clowns won in straight falls. No word on the DQ in the tercera, just that the losers wanted a super libre rematch.
Wolfgamers, a site I’ve never heard of previously and appears to be very new, has a list of the complete AAA Video Game roster. The numbers don’t add up with what’s been said elsewhere (41 instead of 31) so I have questions about this accuracy here, but it’s close enough to give us something to talk about. Almost everyone who you think should be in makes it in – Latin, Aerostar, Laredo and Escoria are the biggest misses, and I still think I saw Escoria in the latest trailer. Otherwise, everyone most everyone I thought should be in but hadn’t turned up (Hermandad!), and some people I wasn’t expecting did as well: both Stones, May & Pimpi, Gronda & Groon (even though he wasn’t supposedly in the company when they froze the roster) and even four mini tecnicos. Which actually makes the lack of mini rudos another miss.
Fray Tormenta won his match.
Ultimo Dragon is back in Mexico, teaming with guys he doens’t know, facing guys he can’t remember, wrestling in front of sub 100 people crowds. I imagine this is not unusual for indy stars.
Estrellas del Ring talks with the original AAA Payasos, who want to return to the ring this year. NO.
