AAA on Televisa #944 (06/26/2010)

Domo de la Feria de Leon, 05/31/2010

Mari Apache

Mari Apache, Mascarita Divina, Relampago, Yuriko vs Decnnis, Mini Histeria, Polvo de Estrellas, Rain: I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: Mari Apache is the scariest wrestler in this promotion. (The top rope drop actually looks less painful from this angle than other ones they used.) She’s either great or she’s occasionally killing people. I don’t know what it is, but I have a feeling we’re about six months away from a Rain shoot interview where she expresses high levels of unhappiness with her stint here.

Alan Stone, Chris Stone, El Elegido vs Cuervo, Escoria, Ozz: THE BEST ELEGIDO MATCH EVER. It wasn’t much of an Elegido match and he was the lesser guy in it, but the Stones decided to get in about two years of action in one six minute match and La Secta were game. No one seems to know why AAA brought Chris Stone back on TV to do a Chris Stone rudo turn and a Chris vs Alan feud – these are things AAA usually seems indifferent towards, if not openly hostile against – but if it gets me more matches like this, I hope it lasts a long time.

Jack Evans, Joe Lider, Nicho el Millionario vs Alex Koslov, Chessman, Kenzo Suzuki: an angle disguised as a match. I don’t recall the beatdown at all affecting any of the tecnicos for TripleMania, but that’s how they do it.

Electroshock & Silver King vs Dr. Wagner Jr. & La Parka: short with an abrupt end.

Cibernético, Heavy Metal, Octagón vs Hernandez, LA Park, Zorro: another match with a long beatdown, and not much after it. Tecnicos looked pretty dumb, having no reason to not break up the pin and failing to make an effort. For a guy on loan from TNA, Hernandez sure is getting every win possible. Even as slow as AAA does things, he’s probably closer to being at the top of this promotion than his “main” one.

No details on most of the matches.  Hijo de Pirata Morgan was wearing the UWF United States Heavyweight Championship belt he picked up this past Sunday in northern Mexico.

The AAA vs IWRG match, in video: Part 1, part 2, part 3. Dr. Cerebro pinned himself while pinning Jack, though both sides thought they won the match. For IWRG, drawing with AAA is a win. After, Cerebro and Jack had a shoving match backstage, broken up by Black Terry and El Brazo (as AAA official, not as a rudo.) Who’s the other camera crew taping this? And for where? Anyway, this should mean Cerebro/Jack next Thursday.

Oficials put down the Gringos in straight falls.

ESTO pitches tonight’s Arena Mexico show as a return to old groups. Mr. Aguila & Hector Garza, former Perros del Mal, are back together in the main event for the first time since Garza left that group (with Olimpico as the third wheel.) Volador & Sombra are portrayed as teaming for the first time since Dos Leyendas, which isn’t actually true but makes a good story.

CMLL announced they’ll be running a series of pieces on legends of the promotion. DJ Spectro has a story about it, including the full list of the 36 guys being featured. Four minute taped pieces will air each week on the Sunday Televisa show. This would be a great feature for Ras de Lona, but another four minutes on the main show going to something that’s not the matches of the week is lame. If this was the only four minutes they were using in this way, it’d be great, but they’ve gone far away from that.

AAA hypes Atomic Boy returning to TV and La Parka & Octagon teaming up.

Dueling video interviews: Estrellas del Ring interviews Dr. Cerebro, Espalada Planas interviews Black Terry. Same interviewer for both.

DJ Spectro looks back at Mil Mascaras vs Tinieblas, in 1972 and the Brazos vs the Intocables for the Trios titles in 1991.

LuchaWorld has the newest Slammin’ Stan.
