unadvertised match, not listed in official results. Flamita won with Flame Fly.
4) Hijo del Fantasma © b Aerostar [AAA CRUISER]
Eterno was Fantasma’s second. Fantasma won with some help from Super Fly. Super Fly used Aerostar’s flame can on Aerostar to burn him after the match. First defense for Fantasma

Steve Pain replaced Daga (right knee soreness.) Moved down a spot. Demon submitted Villano IV.
6) Angélico & Jack Evans NC Averno & Chessman
La Socidead ran in to attack. Blue Demon and Cibernetico went to make save, only Cibernetico attacked Demon instead. Cibernetico reformed the Hell Brothers w/ Averno & Cibernetico.
7) El Mesías & Myzteziz b el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Texano
Mesias replaced Psycho Clown. La Mistica on Perro for the win.

Air Date: 10/04, 10/11

Averno replaces the currently detained Charly Manson in the Hell Brothers, who appear to be tweeners rather than straight rudos. It’s something for Cibernetico (and Demon) to do, and the AAA recap correctly notes that the group was very over last time. Also, this time Chessman already has a title so he won’t go after Cibernetico’s belt and screw everything up. (And maybe we’ve all gotten out of the Demon/Chessman match that still hasn’t happened.)

Not sure what to take out of the Flamita/Steve Pain match, except it was probably really good and probably won’t be airing. Flamita’s #1 priority is Dragon Gate, AAA wanted him back, and they were supposed to meet last week to see if something could be figured out. Maybe something where he works AAA when he’s not around Dragon Gate would work out for everyone. Steve Pain has been working random Mexican indy shows for the last couple of weeks, which really didn’t make sense with the reasons we thought he left AAA (needing to relocate back to California). Maybe something changed. Konnan welcomed Pain back to AAA, so maybe he’s back and really only missed a show or two after all.

They’ve turned Aerostar versus Super Fly up full blast. (That joke was weak.)

Nothing in particular built up for Heroes Inmortales. That lineup should be out in the next week or so and it will probably follow the storylines they’ve done int eh last few weeks without concluding anything.

Next AAA Mexico taping is 10/10. Lucha Underground resumes taping tonight.

12) Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Último Guerrero b Atlantis, Máscara Dorada, Valiente
straight falls

Mephisto winning a block is random, though this tournament itself is pretty random. Theories about why Mephisto won:

  1. CMLL makes no sense, existence is meaningless (and I need another vacation)
  2. someone in the programming department finally noticed a post it note from Januaray – “feed Mephisto to Mistico La Nueva Era” – and decided it was time to get on that.
  3. name pulled out of hat

A benefit show was held at Arena Roberto Paz to help Egipcio, who suffered a skull injury last weekend and is still hospitalized.

Alberto el Patron works in Tijuana on 10/24.

Hijo del Fantasma participated in a celebrity archery contest.

Pretty sure there’s a contest to make the least interesting Wednesday IWRG lineup. Danny Casas returns.

CMLL (FRI) 10/03/2014 Arena México
1) Astral & Stukita vs Demus 3:16 & Pierrothito
2) Cachorro, Dragon Lee, Fuego vs Cancerbero, Raziel, Virus
3) Dark Angel, Goya Kong, Marcela vs Amapola, Dalys, Zeuxis
4) Máscara Dorada, Titán, Valiente vs Kráneo, Mr. Águila, Terrible
5) La Sombra vs Rush, Super Porky, Máximo, Euforia, Delta, Stuka Jr., Puma [Copa Jr., Copa Jr. VIP, semifinal]
6) Mephisto, Thunder, Último Guerrero vs Diamante Azul, La Máscara, Volador Jr.

Hmmm. Rush isn’t winning, because Rush should be winning any sort of tournament like this but there’s really no point in throwing a tournament just for Rush to win. It’s kind of beneath him. Maximo/Mephisto would be a more evenly matched final, though again it’s strange why you’d running a tournament just to end up with Mephisto versus Maximo. So maybe Sombra? This is as pointless for Sombra to win as it is for Rush, but I’m not so sure the Sombra who was on vacation instead of the Anniversary show is going to be winning tournaments right now. Mephisto beating Sombra would be a pretty nice win for Mephisto and also a match that would be hard to set up unless you spontaneously invented a new tournament.

Speaking of vacations, tercera is Dark Angel’s return from the US. And the second is a really good match which won’t actually air on TV. Not sure why they’ve switched from Virus/Lee to Virus/Fuego.
