Air Date: I have no idea! Nothing really makes sense until they explain what the Evolucion tapings are for, and AAA doesn’t like explaining things, they like just throwing them out like so many darts. Nothing really makes sense until stuff starts to air. This one probably can’t air until 05/24 at the soonest, so let’s say that and 06/01.

It still seems like they’re killing time, and this is about the second to last taping before TripleMania. Pacing remains an issue. On the good side, you can’t spoil anything when nothing is happening.

I say “hey, Consejo’s done” and there’s Consejo in the main event. To lose unless Demon & Mesias fight, but there they are. Maybe they’ll get to split up? Maybe they’ll get to react to being on different brands? It’s amusing to see none of the luchadors on Twitter react to being drafted to one brand or another, as if they don’t care because it’s actually totally meaningless. As if!

Mystery spot in the fourth seems like it should be Ricky Marvin. I wonder who it’ll actually be.

I’m alright with Axel being slotted at the Argenis level, though I have no idea why he started off in argument with Daga if that’s where he’s at.

Maximum Velocidad are tecnicos this week. Fresero Jr. is my favorite member of the Shield.

Taping Schedule
04/30 27: Chilpancingo (Evolucion)
05/12: Durango (???)
05/17: Puebla (Sin Limite)
05/24: Madero/Tampico (????)
06/16: Mexico City (TripleMania)

I’ve been told, but haven’t been able to confirm, that there’s even 2 more tapings in May yet to be announced, one of which sounds like it’s a Fusion taping based on the proximity to Mexico City. So much TV.

04/27-28 lucha times

box. Also, a special airing of Tercera Caida airs this Saturday, with more footage from Chicago.

== AAA ==

AAA-Televisa: Blue Demon & Mesias vs LA Park & Texano, and at least one of the Rockers vs Aerostar/Argenis/Fenix and the Minis

AAA-Fusion: We all find out together? There’s no Fusion matches left, so either this switches to Evolucion (and there’s no difference) or it’s rerun time again.

== CMLL ==

Galavision/Televisa: the Mexican Welterweight cibernetico and maybe the maine vent

FOX: Gran Alternativa Block B

52MX: Valiente vs Polvora and Mistico vs Volador in trios.

C3: Generacion Dorada vs Hijos del Averno, Rey Escorpion vs Stuka

MegaCable (Guadalajara): This is the week that’s supposed to have Ultimo Guerrero vs Mistico, but they’ve been avoiding showing the main events here.

TVC Deportes (Puebla): Not sure, since they skipped airing last week.

Terra: Mistico vs Volador

== Other ==

IWRG-AYM Sports: Eterno vs Danny Casas, if a new episode airs.

IWRG-TVC Deportes: Golfo de Guerra?

Noches de Coliseo: Wagner (& Purpura) vs Konnan Big (& Rico)

ChilangaMask, Maximo vs Lyger

ChilangaMask has added Xtreme Tiger vs Stuka vs Magnifico to their 05/19 show, as well as adding Christina Von Eerie to the women’s match (Silueta  & Chik Tormenta.)

I haven’t been doing updated on Maximo’s NJPW tour because it’s a lot of “Maximo loses meaningless trios/atomicos match early in the card” results that I’m not sure I’d be even concerned about if it was happening on a non-major show in Mexico. Something interesting did happen on today’s show: Maximo got pinned by Lyger after a casita, then Lyger challenged Maximo to a mask vs hair match. (nWo Puroresu pointed this out.) I read it as more as Lyger getting into the spirit of being a luchador by making a challenge for an apuesta match that’s never going to actually happen, but I guess there are weirder ideas.

Last night’s Tercera Caida had a lot of coverage from the show outside Chicago this past weekend. Included was an interview with Samuray del Sol, who explains he hasn’t been back to AAA as Octagon Jr. because he’s been busy elsewhere. That doesn’t quite explain why he missed the matches he was already announced for – he was busy with AAA those days but didn’t appear – but is a safe story to explain why he won’t be there in the immediate future.

Dr. Wagner Jr. can’t even remember how his feud with LA Park started. Neither can I!

Rob has highlights of TripleMania XI (2003), AAA 07/03/03 and TripleMania XX (2012).

Bill has highlights of 03/13/13 CMLL.
