AAA TV (THU) 06/09/2011 Arena Naucalpan [Estrellas del Ring, Mi Lucha Libre (1), Mi Lucha Libre (2), Mi Lucha Libre (3), Mi Lucha Libre (4), Mi Lucha Libre (5, 6), SuperLuchas, WagnerMania]
1) Cinthia Moreno, Octagoncito, Pimpinela Escarlata b La Hechicera, Mini Histeria, Yuriko
Pimpi pinned Hechicera with a casita.
2) Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro, Eterno b Chris Stone, Tigre Cota, Tito Santana
Team IWRG wins! Eterno upset Chris Stone, using the Cerebrina (an Alejandrina driver, which Guerrero Maya Jr. has also been using lately.) Estrellas says this was the best match of the night.
3) Dark Dragon, Súper Fly, Último Gladiador b Aerostar, Laredo Kid, Sugi San
Super Fly pinned Laredo Kid. Aerostar filled in for Argos.
4) Argos & El Elegido b Alan Stone & Decnnis
Argos filled in for the mystery man. Apparently, he was an a CMLL guy who reconsidered jumping sometime in the last few days. Estrellas says this was the worst match of the night. Elegido & Argos picked up the win, La Milicia ran in, and Pimpi, Laredo, Aero and Sugi ran them off. Guapito appeared – it seems likes we’ve missed a skit here, because he talked about being put in charge by Konnan (to run off the AAA tecnicos) and Super Fly agreed to support this new war. It looks like this could’ve set up a 6v6 match, but I’m not sure if it’s happening or happening at TripleMania.
5) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown b Cuervo, Espíritu, Ozz [AAA TRIOS, semifinal]
Murder top rope splashed Espiritu to advance. Crowd liked this match.
6) Damian 666, Halloween, Perro Aguayo Jr. b Cibernetico, Charly Manson, Escoria [AAA TRIOS, semifinal]
Halloween replaced Bestia 666. X-Fly interfered in the match freely, and he and Charly appeared to remember they feuded last year. No explanation of why the teams changed, but that sets up precedent for down the road. Dark Family got involved late, as did Bestia. Espiritu’s distraction of Escoria sett up a Halloween’s spear. Perro added a chair assisted double stomp to pick up the win. Psycho Circus attacked the Perros, and all four teams brawled to close out the show.

Projected Air Date (#994, #995)
Mexico: 06/19, 06/26
US: 07/03, 07/10
Really active show for the ‘lame duck’ taping. These matches won’t air until the day after TripleMania despite playing into them, but I think everything that happened can easily be explained to those who didn’t see it (and Psychos vs Perros is a not a new feud that needs to be explained.)

5) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Damián 666, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Halloween [AAA TRIOS, final]
6) Zorro vs Jeff Jarrett [AAA HEAVY]
7) Dr. Wagner Jr. vs Rob Van Dam [AAA LA]
8) LA Park vs El Mesías [hair, mask]
Octagon gets on the card after all, with Cuervo & Espiritu off it. I could see them making appearances with that match, but it’ll more interesting to see if Nygma, Amadeus and Taboo appear with the Bizarros, or if some of them no longer exist.
Not sure if that’s the final card order, but it’s interesting the title match is third from the top. Park & Mesias has to be the main event, but I have more faith in Wagner/RVD delivering than Zorro/Jarrett. And it’s not because of Jarrett – as best as I can tell, Zorro hasn’t wrestled since April 18 in Arena Cuatro Caminos in Nuevo Laredo. Two months off is not good for anyone, much less someone who was having bad singles matches. Keep your expectations very reasonable for that one.
The midcard stuff from Naucalpan was just an explanation of the new status quo and/or setting a match up for down the line.
