AAA on Televisa: 2013-11-30

Fenix meets chair


taped 2013-11-15 @ Auditorio General José María Arteaga, Querétaro, Querétaro
Blue Demon Jr., El Mesías, Electroshock vs Hijo del Fantasma, Silver King, Texano Jr.: Match as pretense to show off the referee camera, specifically working spots based on making it work for that angle. Camera’s not that special. Neither was the match. Texano, who I believe is the world champion, was treated no differently than his two partners. The match was not functionally bad, but very forgettable in a CMLL Tuesday semimain way.


Fenix twisitng plancha onto Espiritu

Cibernético, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Fénix vs Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Dark Spíritu: Standard AAA trios main event. Crowd is way into the idea of Perro as a técnico – even though it feels like he should’ve actually turned at some point, the crowd was already cheering him so I guess it doesn’t make a big difference. He still seems more motivated as a técnico. Secta came off no different than the Consejo in the previous match, three interchangeable rudos who got enough heat just to set up the técnicos. This definitely didn’t feel like the second to last show before a major show. If the finish was supposed to mean something, it didn’t survive being cut away from as soon as possible.

Stigma unmasks Camorra, AAA US

Stigma took Camorra’s mask last night in Puebla. Camorra is Roberto Ruiz Gonzalez, 36 years old, 12 years a wrestler. Rudos won the main event in straight falls. Attendance looked good.

The Tuesday Arena Mexico show is a Wednesday 5pm show because of the holiday. That show starts at 5pm, while Guadalajara is at 8:30.

On this week’s MLW Radio podcast, Konnan says it looks like AAA will be starting in April, and there should be a press conference about it [not sure if he meant El Rey or AAA, sounded like network because he talked about investors]. He’s not sure his exact role with the new backstage company – may be agent, may be writer. AAA will not look anything like WWE, but more like comics. Konnan’s going to make sure it doesn’t drift too far from lucha libre, but likes all the people he’s working with and the talent they’re going to bring in. He wants great matches, and not stupid stuff like WWE/TNA present, and he thinks everyone is going to like the finished product

The show is “being written by really smart sharp people, people who’ve had a lot of success in Hollywood, but they’re people who don’t understand wrestling, so that’s one of the things I’m there for.” That’s present tense; they’re working on now. It’s not a process Konnan’s involved in himself; he meant those people and it sounds like they’ll meet more later on but it’s those writers doing the writing. He’s seen some of the rough drafts and likes how they’ve integrated Mexican history, but he’s also in the dark about a lot of what they’re doing and hopes to learn more soon.

On his own role: “I can’t wrestle any more, but I will be one of the main guys on the show.” He’s not sure if he’s going to be a heel or tweener.

People Konnan feels are tremendous jerks (cleaning up for the website) and unprofessional: LA Park, Dr. Wagner Jr., and Hijo del Santo. He used to hate Canek and feels he killed the UWA by selfishness, but Canek’s changed and is cool now and Mil Mascaras. Fishman and Perro Aguayo are cool.

Also, I’m told Konnan shared his thoughts about me over on a premium podcast – or he complained about Rob and thought it was me again, for the 100th time. This has either reached fantastic A+ trolling or it’s just hilarious. I really want it to be A+ trolling.

Rey Centella lost his mask in Queretaro. Looks like Hijo del Tirantes helped.

LuchaWorld has PosterMania and a recap of this week’s TerceraCaida.

Rob has highlights of 10/15 & 10/22 CMLL and Super Porky vs Rey Escorpion.

Mascara Sagrada says he’s going to retire…at some point, maybe soon, maybe later.

Zeuxis says she’s working for WWL in 2014, so maybe there are WWL shows in 2014.

This is so fake – Polvora’s not going to main event a Friday night show.

Cronicas y Leyendas looks back at Irma Aguilar versus Rossy Moreno.

Averno sure is persistent. Camorra comes back at least once unmasked.

Star Jr. and Rebelde are new names. There was a Star Jr. in la Laguna, but maybe it’s a second generation local we’ve yet to meet. There have been a million Rebelde’s – this is probably not the guy from 1960.

12/27-29 lucha videos

LuchaLibreDeMexico and AAA have posted the UTDN show, and AAA on GalaTV was highlights from Rey de Reyes. (Which means probably TripleMania next week and Heroes Inmortales the week after.)

The Fox Sports main was helpfully shared by @Jokerman81. Semimain was the Leyenda de Plata Block A, which I posted last week. C3 was taped off the stream, which is not quite the TV broadcast.

No TxT this week. SLP seems to be in repeats. LAS continues to be random – note the same taping aired over three different days.
