This time, Hijo del Tirantes shared the poster. They may be doing it this way on purpose.
Generally the same group of guys as the last couple of tapings. No Jarrett (and no Hijo del Pirata!) but at lot of familiar names near the top. Not a lot of advancement here, but a lot of showcasing what Myzteziz can do.
Note the original poster includes a lot of people who didn’t end up on the show. They probably just grabbed a bunch of random photos, but it’s a reminder that Blue Demon Jr. still isn’t back. It could be that they just don’t want to waste him on shows which are clearly just marking time, or it could be thing settled.
Not that marking time or not having Demon are bad things. Again, the tercera looks like it could be really good. It also has the best chance to advance something, with the three guys in the cruiserweight title picture in the same match at the same time. Machine Rocker gets a welcome appearance in the segunda.
The recent tapings are all one week’s worth of tapings with a couple matches possibly being left off. I figure that’s what Konnan means by AAA getting a 2-2.5 hour show; they wouldn’t be looking to add more tapings, but put more of what they have already taped on TV instead of only YouTube.
I wonder if there’s some plan with Zorro we’re going to see that requires him to be on TV a lot more frequently or if they realized they didn’t book him much earlier and are simply making up for it.
This strategy does mean they have to keep taping every weekend. They’re probably due a longer two episode taping coming up soon, but not sure when the next taping is – might be a while before finding out. There will only be five more weeks of TV after this show; that’s about the window for the usual big happening taping of the cycle. And if they’re really going to run Gimnasio Juan de la Barrera so often, that’d be the time to do it – anytime after will be too close to TripleMania.
