Hey, now that we’re apparently halfway into yet another “Konnan & Dorian take over AAA” story, can someone explain to me what the difference between a Joaquin run AAA and a Dorian run AAA? Legion guys still get to do whatever they want under the tecnico reign, rudos didn’t have any special advantage last time Konnan was in charge.

Alex Koslov & Christina Von Eerie vs Aerostar & Fabi Apache for the AAA World Mixed Tag Team Championship: A marked improvement over the last title match. Not without it’s flaws, but it didn’t make sad watching and for that I am glad. Seriously can not wait for someone in CMLL to steal the spinning headscissors into a backcracker spot.

Even Super Fly grimly laughs at his feud with Electroshock. I guess it’s great that we’re now acknowledging that was a major screw up, but it’d be nice if they actually got around to fixing it it (note: long teased rudo turn is not a fix.) By the way, as of Wednesday’s Figure Four Daily with Konnan, the new story we’re going with is they sincerely wanted to get Super Fly over in that feud, but Electroshock just kept going into business for himself by destroying Super Fly in matches. AAA punished Electroshock for this un-professionalism by making him Rey de Reyes and then giving him the World Title, and Electroshock learned from this by pulling the same bit with every other small guy he’s faced since. Anyway.

El Elegido, Laredo Kid, Relampago vs Alan Stone, Chris Stone, Decnnis: This was not what you’d call a good match, but they made me BELIEVE and that’s better than the great majority of Elegido related matches. Alan’s turn was melodramatic (though not so nearly as much as Decnnis in the bit with El Brazo), but they built up Elegido vs the Stones as strong as they’ve built up anything in recent memory. I still have no idea why they’re doing this and don’t believe they’ll trust Elegido enough to put him in a mask vs hair match of any stripe, but this has all been better than it read on paper.

Cibernético, Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Black Abyss, Hernandez, Psicosis III, Zorro: Psicosis and Black Abyss worked to so hard to get out of the doghouse and get back on TV more regularly. Doesn’t appear to have actually worked, but at least I appreciate the effort, the dives, and Black Abyss’s epic flying nothing right into Cibernetico’s choke grip. Cibernetico & Psycho Circus were as over as anything on this show, which means Cibene

I was actually into the show up to this point.

Hijo de Tirantes screws luchadors for months; Joaquin gets to hit him.

Dr. Wagner Jr., Heavy Metal, La Parka Jr. vs Electroshock, Silver King, Último Gladiador: Silver King/Dr. Wagner Jr. isn’t doing much for me, but maybe when we finally get into the singles match, I have faith that those two can make it really good. Don’t nearly feel the same way about Electroshock & Heavy Metal. Just not into weapon shots and then immediately no-selling those weapon shots.

Joe Lider & Nicho el Millionario vs Damián 666 & Halloween: for a big epic match built up with out of the ring promos since the moment they started teasing the the Perros showing up here, this was a seven minute just okay match with unedited botched spots (and probably more that were). It was also completely overshadowed by the post match bit, as most tecnico wins on this show usually are.
