Leono & Konnan Big lose their hair

indy (SUN) 07/14/2013 Arena Coliseo Monterrey [LuchaMania Monterrey]
Attendance: 3850
1) Fake Rey Mysterio & Fake Sin Cara b Fake Sin Cara Negro & Fake Umaga
2) Larry Miranda Jr. b Sexy Francis
3) Burrito & Nahomi b Dama De Hierro (Monterrey) & Erika Sotelo
4) Ernesto Chavana COR Konnan Big [hair]
Simbolo, Silencio, Vudu, Hijo del Ninja, Larry Miranda and Dulce Kanela were helping Chavana, though Miranda and Kanela were quickly taken out with big falls. Big Neurosis, Rico Rodriguez and Sky were helping Konnan Big. Ninja and Silencio looked good. Chavana wasn’t horrible. He wore a mask at the start of the match, then gave it to Rico Rodriguez and Konnan gave him a guitar shot by mistake. Crowd was behind Konnan Big, a surprise. Konnan did a dive off a high place and could not make it back to the ring in 20 seconds for the count out loss. Konnan got some of his hair cut, and was supposed to have the rest cut on the TV show. Ninja and Konnan teased a hair vs career match.

Definitely a Noches de Futbol show. Originally announced for 06/30, but pushed back a few weeks. The three undercard matches weren’t much, the main event is a TV show host versus gimmick match wrestler, and it drew one of the biggest gates of the year. The LuchaMania Monterrey recap starts off with a piece about the role of these matches in Monterrey (it’s not the matches they wanted to see, but the matches they wanted to see this year draw badly and this drew well, so they can’t be faulted and there are plenty of other options.)

Lineups and results are spotty prior to 2005, but a lot of big matches are recorded. CMLL started running this arena in 1995 (it was mostly a UWA building prior), and last night is the first and only time I can find where a local luchador beat a national guy in an apuesta match. It’s possible it happened before, but it’s a rarity. There’s also a pattern of surprising winners going on to lose later in the year, but Espiritu Maligno has beaten the odds so far.

It appeared to be a complete sell out, which is a nice surprise. Besides the AAA TV taping, the Taekwondo World Championship is taking place in Puebla and seemed to draw a lot of people themselves based on photos (and more media coverage; it’s also why the TVC Deportes schedule is different this week)

CMLL Gaceta hypes Thunder vs Mr. Niebla, which is bad news. They also mention Okumura replaces Namajague due to injury, which is more bad news. Hope they still get to Mascara Dorada vs Namajague. Leono’s due to show up bald for the opener today.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

Rob has highlights of AAA 11/26/1993 and March 1994 AAA.

Black Terry Jr. has highlights of Trauma II vs Carta Brava Jr. and Super Nova vs Dinamic Black. Tercera Caida streamed part of that match on Twitter and it looked good.

1) Bengala & Fresbee vs Espanto Jr. & Herodes Jr.
2) Pegasso, Sensei, Tritón vs Artillero, Nitro, Súper Comando

1) El Divino & Javier Cruz vs El Yaki & Samael (Guadalajara)
2) León Blanco, Smaker, Virgo vs Espectrum, Exterminador, Magnum

Looks like Hippie may not get out of this one.

07/15 AAA TV Results (Tehuacan)

AAA TV (MON) 07/15/2013 Polideportivo La Huizachera, Tehuacan, Puebla [Black Terry Jr. (Flickr), Lucha Libre AAA]
1) Black Killer & Dracul Jr. ?? Blaze & Principe Azul
dark match
2) Carta Brava Jr. & El Apache b Lucky Boy & Niño de Ébano
Apache super powerbomb on Nino de Ebano for the win. Texano came to the ring and attacked the tecnicos after the match for no particular reason.
3) Texano Jr. b Lucky Boy [AAA HEAVY]
Texano brought Hijo del Tirantes to the ring, beat up Lucky Boy (who did not challenge him), pinned him with Tirantes counting three, and then declared he had just defended his title. Psycho Clown came to the ring to challenge Texano Jr., saying he’d beat him in the semimain first.
4) Faby Apache, Octagoncito, Pimpinela Escarlata b Mamba, Mini Abismo Negro, Taya Valkyrie
Faby armbar on Mamba.
5) Angélico & Jack Evans b Chessman & Eterno
Jack 630 senton on Eterno.
6) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown b Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Silver King, Texano Jr.
Murder pinned Mascara with a top rope splash. Texano pointed out he was not beat, so no title shot for Psycho Clown (or anyone else.) Psycho swore he’d get the title from Texano.
7) Cibernético & El Mesías DQ el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Psicosis
Cibernetico unmasked before entering the ring. He’s back to short hair. Perro fouled Cibernetico; initial reports said Perro got away with it, but the AAA recap says Cibernetico got the win by DQ.

Air Date: 07/27?

Building looks pretty full. Not sure on capacity; there’s lot of floor seats, bleachers, and big space in between. Maybe in the 2000-3000 range?

Main event looks like one of those Perros matches where chairs and tables (and staplers?) are all legal, but a foul is not. Not at all surprised by how things turned out with Cibernetico. Also, there’s no new direction in that feud.

Psycho Clown versus Texano Jr. sounds like a fun TV match. It’d still be the same problem of Texano being midcard world champion if they did it on a major show, but even then it’d be better than Villano V. I hope we hear about the time they were both in Guapos U.

Angelico/Jack vs Eterno/Chessman looks good in the photos.

Texano’s title defenses against opening match guys keep getting weaker, though that’s probably the point – he’s a rudo, so he’s doing things in a dishonorable way. The upside is the Maxima Velocida match will surely air. Mixed trios probably will not if they handle this taping the same as Leon.

Next taping is Friday in Xalapa.

Puebla doesn’t air until later this week. We had a recording issue with the CMLL Televisa show, but Lover_Ice has the show up in full. SLP on Canal 9’s feed came alive halfway thru the show, which was odd. Sunday Terra show quality is iffy.
