AAA TV (SUN) 08/05/2012 Arena Ciudad de Mexico [AAA, Black Terry Jr. (flickr)]
1) Fabi Apache, Fenix, Octagoncito, Pimpinela Escarlata b Dark Dragon, Mini Charly Manson, Sexy Star, Yuriko
Fabi pinned Yuriko.
2) Joe Lider & Psicosis L Chessman & Juventud Guerrera and Extreme Tiger & Halloween and Jack Evans & Teddy Hart [relevos suicidas, cage]
cage match, with the final person left and their partner having a hair match later. Moved down to the second match. Teams fought among themselves. Halloween and Juvi were the first two out, followed by Tiger (who dove onto the first two), Nicho, Jack and Teddy, with Jack doing a big spot. The final two were Chessman and Lider. Vampiro appeared, and threw Chessman off the top of the cage and thru a table. Chessman was taken to the hospital, but this mean Lider and Psicosis would meet later.
3) La Parka, Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown b Octagón, Semental, Texano, Toscano
Octagon tried fouling Parka, fouled Semental instead, and Parka got the pin. Consejo turned on Octagon. Parka thought about making the save and finally did. Octagon was surprised and the two did not make up (yet.)
4) Psicosis b Joe Lider [hair]
all the hardcore spots you’d expect, including the staple gun. Lider stripped Psicosis of his mask during the match (the match was mistakenly announced as mask vs hair and this emphasized the mask wasn’t on the line.) Tirantes got involved, and Lider went thru a table for the loss. Lider said the feud was not over.
5) Electroshock & LA Park b Jeff Jarrett & Kurt Angle [seconds hair]
Park & Electro represent Joaquin. Jarrett and partner represent Dorian. Karen was with Dorian and team TNA, but was kicked out of ringside for interference. Abyss replaced her. Electroshock pinned Angle. Konnan protested, but Dorian relented and apologized to his family. Joaquin forgave him and wanted to wave the hair match stip. LA Park was angry and argued, and the TNA team took advantage to attack the tecnicos. Dorian revealed his apology was a ruse and had the rudos shave Joaquin, never losing his own hair.
6) El Mesías b el Hijo del Perro Aguayo [AAA HEAVY]
Garza and Tara were with Perro, Cibernetico was with Mesias. Mesias retained the title. Perro tried a martinete late in the match, but Garza broke it up and argued with Perro. Garza would end up hitting Perro with a chair (by mistake, aiming for Perro) and Perro bled a large amount. Piero and the doctor considered stopping the match, but they kept going. Perro Sr. came out to check on his son, who lost after Mesias speared him thru a table to win. Cibernetico attacked Perro Sr. after the loss and argued with Mesias when he put a stop to it. The rest of the Perros yelled at Garza, and Hector quit Perros del Mal (again.)
7) Dr. Wagner Jr. b Máscara Año 2000 Jr. [mask]
Mascara Ano 2000 was with his son, and Hijo de Dr. Wagner Jr. & Silver King were Wagner’s seconds, but Silver King turned on his brother during this match and the ref slow counted Wagner at times. Hijo de Wagner fought off Mascara Sr. & Silver King, Wagner hit Mascara with a bottle and pinned him for the win. Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. is Ángel Reyes, 8 years of a wrestler, of Lagos de Moreno, Jalisco.
Air Date: 08/12 & 08/19, by anyone’s best guess.
Antonio Pena was honored after the first match. Perro Aguayo Sr. was inducted into the AAA Hall of Fame after the second match, but also challenged to a hair vs hair match by Mascara Ano 2000 Sr. (with Argus in tow.)
No attendance figure yet. AAA did not announce a sell out, but it looked 80-95% full (excluding what was cut off for the stage). The looks of the show is really strong in pictures. It’s a little thing that bugs me a lot, but this is the first time the entrances have looked better than I’d expect. A lot of people had great new gear or look for the show. Dark Dragon‘s gold outfit is great. I hope Sexi Star isn’t actually as thin as she looks in the pictures. Anyway, the larger point is it sure looks has the look of the biggest show of the year, and as big as any WWE show in Mexico City.
Arturo Rivera continued his streak of announcing TripleMania. Leo Riano was also part of the announce crew, though he must’ve been multi-tasking pretty hard to be on Twitter at the same time. AAA hasn’t been doing live commentary at all this year – Jesus and Andres are doing it later in AAA’s studio – and there was no way to actually hear them live, but maybe they thought it’d come across stronger on TV to do it that way for this show.
There were so many people on Twitter looking for the show on PPV (or a free stream). Only AAA knows how much money they passed up by not putting Triplemania out there in anyway, but they did a poor job of pushing that you had to be at Arena Ciudad de Mexico to see the show. AAA mentioned it not being on PPV, but only if you were paying attention and looking for it, as if they were trying to hide it.
Lider and Psicosis fought after their match. I can’t figure out what’s left for them, unless they’re doing an exploding ring or something like that. I guess there’s only a limited amount of people they can work their kind of match and it’s the one they (and AAA) want to work.
Octagon is not yet a tecnico, but obviously will be soon. Garza does appear to be out of Perros del Mal right away and will be back to feuding with Perro Jr. again. Wagner is back against Silver King, and Mascara 2000 has the Psycho Circus, which leaves the next title match as – Cibernetico vs Mesias? Gosh.
Semental was not written out. He may be working multiple roles as needed.
They’re back at it Friday in Ciudad Madero. Lineup should be out any moment.
