Update 04/25: Shuffled lineup due to Mesias’ surgery, and Daniels being added to the show.
Update: AAA’s version of the show includes a previously unlisted opener. First half of the show should be good.
I asked this out below in the Lucha Times post and I’ll try it here too – did anyone watch last week’s AAA from Mexico? None of the usual YouTubers have it up, and I’m wondering how they handled the first five match show for their two tapings bit. There’s only so much time they can kill having Alex and Arturo talk on a studio set, even in AAA, and I’m wondering if they changed plans again. Otherwise, this isn’t going to air for a great while.
LA Park returns to AAA rings after a 13.5 year absence. I had figured they’d hold off on the first match between the two until TripleMania, especially given the likely quality of a match between the two and their desire to hold of doing the big mask match for as long as possible. Guess not. Dorian hyped up a special surprise on the last taping for this show, which would be the mystery spot here. Not sure if that is meant to be Vampiro or someone else entirely.
I had to look this up because I wasn’t sure if I was losing my mind, and maybe you had the same thought:
- 03/12 – Mesias hurts his shoulder at Rey de Reyes (has excuse for loss)
- 03/19 and 04/06 – rudos continue to go after shoulder
- 04/07 AAA.com: Mesias to undergo procedure for shoulder tomorrow
- 04/17 – Mesias shoulder still hurting as much as ever. This time, Zorro & Vamp given credit for hurting it.
- 04/20 Dos De Tres: Mesias underwent shoulder surgery, probably but not definite for TripleMania.
- 04/30 – Mesias, back in action, likely with shoulder taped
Is this the type of shoulder surgery where you’re wrestling 10 days later, but not sure for six weeks after? Whatever. Why do injury angles when you’re just going to ignore them the next week on TV? (See also: LA Park’s martinete on La Parka.)
Flipping Wagner to green was relatively easy. That’s quite a tecnico trio.
Clowns live! And may be tecnicos at this point, not sure.
Jack Evans was scheduled to work for Evolve on 05/01 – announced weeks ago – then was pulled off the show about an hour before this lineup got to the internet. Outsiders booking AAA or CMLL lucha guys is fruitless since they have no apparent power over their schedule and any promises can be unpromised at the last moment; you have to do it thru the promotions, and that seems impossible for most anyone north of the border to do.
I like Relampago’s new lightning mask.
Checking up on The Guys AAA Will Be Building Around:
- Marco Corleone – left promotion
- Laredo Kid – not on the card
- Jack Evans – used in a completely meaningless way in the second match
- Zorro – in the main event! Least important person in the main event, but still miles ahead of the rest of these guys.
