AAA in Sala de Armas, Jarrett

AAA (SUN) 12/22/2013 Sala de Armas Magdalena Mixhuca [Estrellas del Ring, The Gladiatores]
1) Ave Negra & Ironía b King Dragón & Xavi Boy
2) Rey Inmortal & Voltar b Euro & Spider Boy
3) Cinthia Moreno, Faby Apache, Sexy Star b Mamba, Pimpinela Escarlata, Yuriko Polvo de Estrellas
Sexy Star and Cinthia Moreno replaced Taya and Jennifer in the women vs exoticos match. Pimpi and Mamba could not get along and lost.
4) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown b Chessman, Daga, Hijo del Fantasma
Chessman replaced Psicosis.
5) Cibernético & La Parka DQ el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Texano
Tecnicos took 2/3. Perro fouled Cibernetico.

Crowd looks surprisingly low for an AAA with names in Mexico City, but I don’t know how much the local promoter pushed it. Plus, any fan who may have wanted to see AAA could’ve just seen a free show in town a few days ago.

Jeff Jarrett resigned from TNA over the weekend. On today’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer was very doubtful Jarrett left TNA to join AAA and believed Jarrett would be starting his own thing (which may not end up being even wrestling.) I’m not sure that would preclude him from the once every few months schedule he’s doing now but Jarrett’s not going to be an AAA regular.

El Popular didn’t post a recap of last night’s Arena Puebla show and it looks like Cinco Radio took the night off too.

Estrellas del Ring has a more detailed recap of the ChilangaMask show.

Cronicas y Leyendas looks back at Ultimo Guerrero winning the the first Universal championship.

Hip Hop Man wants a shot against Imposible and his title belt.

LuchaWorld has a recap of Friday’s Terra show.

DJ Spectro had a card showing El Halcon unmasked in the Astrodome in 1980 – three years after he lost the mask in Arena Mexico.

Eric R recaps the 12/14 Lucha Azteca show.

Programming Notes: My extremely kind helper for many of this shows will be otherwise occupied next weekend and unable to record the shows. I’m working on ways to record CMLL on C3 and Fox Sports, but the quality won’t be what you’re used to for either and it’s no sure thing the streams will work. I will also try for AAA, but I’m less concerned because AAA will graciously post their own show and should be in Best of mode anyway. I’m not sure I have a way to record TxT, but there may not actually be a TxT next week. If you’re a person who records these shows in Mexico and I can be of any help getting them to the internet, please let me know. All the other shows should be as usual.

Coincidentally, I’m also very busy next week. I’ll do my best to get everything up but it may be a later than usual.
