The missing taping with the missing Aerostar match! Everything is coming together…except Fenix and Pentagon are off at least episode five of Lucha Underground.

Lucha Underground Day 3/Day 4 tapings

LU (SAT) 09/13/2014 Lucha Underground Arena, Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, California

1) Hijo del Fantasma COR Martin Causas
Dark match, stopped early when Martin’s head hit the floor and split open. Vampiro and paramedics checked on him, but Martin indicated it was not as bad as it looked
2) Carnitas b Mariachi Loco
Carnitas is (maybe?) a new name for Mascarita Sagrada (original), who was wearing his normal outfit. Chavo Guerrero attacked the mini after the match.
3) Mil Muertes b Ricky Mandell
Muertes is seconded by Kartina (ex-Maxine) for his matches
4) Fenix (AAA) b Pentagón Jr., Drago (AAA)
best match so far of the taping

There’s obvious and definite push back against complaints thispromotion wasn’t lucha libre enough by putting the three (now free to work!) luchadors together in the main event. Everyone wins, since it was said to be an awesome match. Less obviously, there’s a lot less Chavo Guerrero Jr. – that run in is his only appearance on these tapings. (Though, unless they’re editing things around after the fact, Chavo as a rudo seems to mean there’s no chance this will be reworked into the first taping, so there’s a good chance of deja vu when other people watch those first two tapings and complain about the same things as people who read the results.)

The Carnitas name is mentioned in a twitter message. Possibly a joke?

LU (SUN) 09/14/2014 Lucha Underground Arena, Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, California
1) El Americano, Mariachi Loco, Mascarita Sagrada b Cisco, Cortes Castro, Mil Muertes
dark match
2) Sexy Star b Ivelisse Vélez
3) Fenix (AAA) b Pentagón Jr.
another great match
4) Drago (AAA) b Hijo del Fantasma
Fantasma was using a different name/mask here.
5) Johnny Mundo COR Big Zeke
Cisco & Cortes Castro ran in, causing their own man to be counted out. Mundo was put thru a table.

Best turn out for a show so far; whatever they did the last few days to get people to show up worked.

Not 100% sure on what name Fantasma used here and curious about him using a different name. Mesias not being Mesias can be justified by him portraying a different character and by wanting to get more masks on the show. If Fantasma was just here to give Drago a good win without losing as Fantasma, that makes sense (though people figured out it was Fantasma so it didn’t actually work.) If Fantasma is a regular masked character under a different name, then it’s just strange for a promotion that’s supposed to be an extension of AAA.

They’re off this weekend, and then back again on 09/27.

09/14 AAA TV Results (Cancun)

AAA TV (SUN) 09/14/2014 Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya, Puerto Aventuras, Quintana Roo [AAA]
1) Dinastía, Jennifer Blake, Octagoncito b Mini Abismo Negro, Mini Psycho Clown, Taya Valkyrie
2) Aerostar, Angélico, Australian Suicide b Daga, El Apache, Hijo de Pirata Morgan
Angelico gave Hijo del Pirata the crucifix powerbomb and Aerostar added a tornillo for the win.
3) Psycho Clown b Chessman
Psycho beat Chessman. Seconds were Dinastia and Averno, and Averno attacked Dinastia during the match. Blue Demon made the save
4) El Patrón Alberto, La Parka, Myzteziz b Averno, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Texano Jr.
Alberto won with the armbar (“Rompe Destinos”) on Averno. La Sociedad attacked the tecnicos after the match, with Cibernetico and Demon making the save. Cibernetico said he was going to form a new group to counter La Sociedad (and it sounded as if Demon would be part of it.)

Air Date: 09/27

All tecnico victories on the vacation show. There were also others brought in during the weekend – Gronda, Electroshock, and Pasion Kristal appear in pictures – who did not appear on the show.

Cibernetico is going for some sort of record for most groups formed (but this is probably what he was taking about with the announced back in Pachuca.)

Next announced taping is 10/10, but they’d need to tape before that and might have announced one on TV this weekend. AAA TV did announce Heroes Inmortales in SLP this weekend.

como estaz 2×3: Jeque’s quesadillas

On Sunday, we went to Coliseo Coacalco and Arena Naucalpan, and caught two fun shows with two different audiences (and one Hip Hop Man.)

Podcast is about 30 minutes – I went too fast, but Rob carried things by actually describing the matches. There’s no show to go to tomorrow, but there probably will be a podcast at some point.
