CMLL (SUN) 03/04/2012 Arena Coliseo [CML, La Catedral]
1) Bobby Zavala & Zayco b Camaleón & Freesbe
Zayco, back much sooner than expected, won – he took fall 1/3, the last with the Zayclone on Camaleon.
2) Aereo, Eléctrico, Último Dragoncito b Mercurio, Niño de Acero, Pequeño Olímpico
Nino de Acero’s official return after a bad leg injury three years ago. He’s now a rudo, where he briefly started. Tecnicso took 1/3.
3) Euforia, Namajague, Shigeo Okumura b Diamante, Dragon Lee, Rey Cometa
Team Namajague took falls 1/3.
4) Hooligan, Pólvora, Skándalo b Fuego, Stuka Jr., Valiente
Rudos took 1/3. Tuareg made the expected title challenge, but Stuka and Fuego refused to defend their Coliseo tag team titles. Rudos took their masks instead.
5) La Sombra, Shocker, Super Porky b Kráneo, Morphosis, Psicosis
Shocker’s return. His team took falls 1/3.

Los Catedral argues Metro was a horrible name, so Diamante Azul was better name. This argument only works if Diamante Azul was the only other name he could’ve used. It’s ridiculous otherwise. They’ve taken a promising future star and gave him a gimmick that’ll handicap him just to get one in on Blue Demon Jr. That is also ridiculous.

SuperLuchas #452 has a bloody La Parka. Inside, proof of Histeria III’s continuing existence.

03/11 AAA TV Lineup (Ecatepec)

Mexico Air Date: 03/18 – and probably 03/25.

They teased Gallego last month and ended up using Tito Santana, so don’t get your hopes up. (Where is Tigre Cota, by the way? The great joy of AAA’s bloated roster and few TV tapings is there is no end of people you can complain about disappearing into a black hole.) First TV appearances of the year for both Super Fly & Aerostar, who are basically back to fighting the same guys they debuted against. Those are were good matches, so that’s fine with me.

The first three matches all could be really good. Argos as a rudo is going to be an interesting challenge, but Mortiz and Semental should do well with that tecnico trio.

Everyone in the semimain but Halloween have also not been around since 2011. The only arguement to not doing a title change is most of the fans probably assume the Psycho Circus are trios champions already, so you might not actually need to give them titles. Still, you might well as give it to the team that’s on every spot show.

All these people popping back up after not being around gives this the feel of a lame duck taping, so there’s probably not going to be much impact on Rey de Reyes on the main event. It still should be another good Jack/Perro match.

The parallel universe where Jarrett shows up for Guerra de Titanes (or, alternatively, AAA books Guerra de Titanes on a day their champion can show up) is so much more interesting. Rey de Reyes is Mesias vs Garza in a champion vs “champion of the other promotion! (and by which we mean Perros del Mal)” match, Triplemania is a Mesias vs Texano title match out of their most interesting storyline. Instead, we’re getting Mesias vs Jarrett and maybe Mesias vs Jarrett vs LA Park.
