Air Date: 12/08 & 12/15 – which would mean year end stuff could run 12/22, 12/29 and 01/06. This is really early in December, maybe they’ll tape and air more new stuff yet in 2012.
A full card! Well, close to a full card.
I’ve talked about the main event. It’s probably Chessman losing his hair, though there’s always a chance Vampiro could lose. This might be the only way Vampiro could lose his hair, since no one seems to trust him in a singles match, but it still seems to be unlikely.
Texano isn’t being built like a guy about to win the heavyweight title. That match is more interesting for the performance than the outcome. It looks like it’ll be the only singles match on the card, and it might be the only significant match without a lot of outside shenanigans (though Silver King ensures at least something with the finish – Consejo isn’t going to last a year without a split up.) Other matches might be bigger stunt shows and spectacles, but Texano vs Mesias will either be the best match of the show or a really disappointing match for Texano.
Infierno Rockers will be putting their win streak on the line versus Psycho Circus, and probably should keep winning at this point. They’re the only two set trios, so this is probably the first of a lot of these matches.
Weird to have all the mystery people in the tercera. Based on current storylines, La Parka & Octagon should be teaming with Octagon Jr./Samuray del Sol and Silver King should be with Toscano and Mascara Ano 2000. Not sure if there’s a problem with availability or if they’re just not sure if other people are going to be worked on the card. (This is somewhat more an issue of only having six matches, at least one less than usual for a major show.) By the way, Octagon’s still red because he never actually turned. I’ll fix it later.
Ladder match is the usual lack of ideas for midcard guys. Look at Daga, turning to join the Perros del Mal and getting the cruiserweight title shot he would’ve gotten anyway. There’s a partial problem of Juvi being hurt maybe affecting plans, but the problems with that group of guys go back longer than that. They got thrown in to a random tag match at Rey de Reyes, they got thrown into a random cage match at TripleMania, they got thrown into random matches at Heroes Inmortales, and here’s a match with zero build and a bunch of guys who are going to fall off things in big spots that AAA will forget about in two weeks. The people in charge appear to have no interest in these luchadors as individual characters (even the guys who aren’t) and just throw them all out there indiscriminately. It makes it very harder to take seriously consider their complaints about other company’s booking when they’re doing these sort of things. AAA is lazy as everyone else.
(This is also why the TNA wrestler is pointless; if it’s Zema Ion or whomever, he’s the 8 guy in an 8 guy match, it’d hard to believe he’ll mean much. The only reason to use a TNA guy here is to keep the relationship going to eventually get Jarrett for the blow off match – except they’ll have to run another angle to heat it up again, which seems to mean to me that there’s nothing to blow off.)
I don’t want Teddy Hart to be suspended forever, but it’s a bit depressing he’s getting to come back for a major show and Dark Dragon may make a dark match or may just work a spot show that night. I wonder if Fenix was in that match before Extreme Tiger told them he was leaving.
It’d be weird to be spending so much time on TV about the Apaches for them not be on the show. Halloween, Mari Apache and Maestro de Maestros vs Fabi Apache, Atomic Boy and another guy makes the most sense. They could sub someone in for Gran Apache if they needed to get more people on the card.
Update: the press release announced the opener: Cuervo, Fabi Apache, Mascairta Dorada, Pimpinela vs Halloween, Mari Apache, Yuriko, and Mini Charly Manson
