AAA on Televisa #954 (09/04/2010)

Plaza de Toros La Concorida, Orizaba, Veracruz, 08/14/2010

Alex Koslov, Christina Von Eerie, Sexy Star vs Aerostar, Fabi Apache, Mari Apache where the AAA Reinas de Reinas Championship & AAA Mixed Tag Titles On The Line: I was surprised about the finish, only because I could have sworn the finishing move mentioned at the time wasn’t a powerbomb. The match was good, the Aerostar dive was very bad looking (and since they may never show it again, it’s over here) and I hope they never do it again.

Heavy Metal & Octagón vs Electroshock & Último Gladiador: Every single chair/head shot in this feud really sticks out in the current climate of concussion concerns. Maybe they’re doing it safely and I haven’t noticed, but I’m thinking no. Anyway, points to Heavy Metal for hitting a guy with a guitar and then deciding he needs to do the family’s rollup to clinch the win. This seemed pretty much the end of this feud, but probably not.

Dr. Wagner Jr. vs Silver King vs Vampiro for the AAA World Heavyweight Championship: Crowd sounded so much louder on Dos De Tres’ video than on the TV. I wouldn’t need to see this match ever again, but it was okay for a three way and I had no problems with Vampiro this time around. Apparently, Vampiro’s strict moral code allows for all sorts of beatings before and after a match, but he must keep it clean while the match is in progress (except for when he walked in that match in the Yucatan to attack Wagner, oops.)

The post match was seriously melodramatic but I think the people bought it? Maybe?

  1. Why is it that AAA still allows some of most insane and unnecessary dives and head shots after all the fuss Konnan made during the Chris Benoit news? AAA/Konnan should want to be protecting their wrestlers, not putting them in an unsafe predicament.

  2. Thank you guys for complaining about this. I had the same anger when I first saw it two weeks back.

    1) A DIVE OFF THE LIGHTING STAND AS A THROWAWAY SPOT IN AN OPENING MATCH. This is worse than most of the dumb shit TNA does.

    2) NO REPEATS. That’s right – Aero Star risks his life and rather than show a single replay to put over what an insane man this is – they cut to Octagon and Heavy Metal in the back.

    3) HE’S DONE THIS BEFORE. AAA already did this on the 2/15/09 Ecatepec taping where Aero Star jumped from just as high up with more people catching him. Doing it over and over just kills how insane it is. Did the WWE have someone re-do the Foley HITC cage bump a few months later?

    It was a total unneccessary spot and very dangerous not only in planning but also in execution since Koslov did a horrible job catching. You can see Aero Star’s knees losing 5 years right there.

    The only thing dumber than this is when the PdM book Celestial on a show just so he can jump off a high place like he does on every show since he can’t do anything else.

  3. @Rob: Yeah, that is the type of dive you do in the main event of a major show, and it should be the finish.

    Not only that, but he is doing that from a lighting truss to the floor. Not the ring, or a table, or a group of wrestlers. He did it to one guy that is his size, who missed catching him.

    Where is the vet that pulls this guy aside in the back and gives him an earful, because every match that night has to follow that dive (and he jacked it up).


  4. Aerostar decision,it was stupid. I even think Konnan hate stuff like this, the way he be talking in his radio interviews. If it doesn’t involve him he don’t really give a crap. This is the same promotion that let wrestlers do drugs in the lockerroom, there’s no one to say “don’t do that”.

  5. @tromataker: I think AAA should have had the common sense to put someone at ringside with Koslov to help catch Aerostar. That truss is pretty high, and no one should be expected to catch someone that high.

  6. It’s not even that it was just Koslov, it’s that the last Aero Star dive that Cubsfan gifed was Alex missing catching him just out of the ring and him taking a messed up bump, so I don’t know what they were thinking with that. I do agree that they should have had more people there to catch him, though.

  7. @tromataker: Aerostar seemed to hit the dive vertically, not horizontally as seen in the clip Rob posted. That seemed to make the difference, not anything Koslov did or didn’t do.

  8. @Rob: id semi accept it if it were in the opening match for triplemania in the palacio de los deportes with twice as many people in the audience

  9. @CM93: If their was a reason to ever do that dive, it would be at Triplemania. But this is AAAttitude, so anthing logical is thrown out the window.
