11/17 AAA TV Lineup (Leon)

AAA TV (MON) 11/17/2014 Domo de la Feria, Leon, Guanajuato
1) ? & ?? vs ??? & ????
2) Dinastía & Mini Drago vs Mini Murder Clown & Mini Psycho Clown
3) Bengala, Drago, Faby Apache vs Demon Rocker, Joe Lider, Taya Valkyrie
4) Aerostar & Australian Suicide vs Pentagón Jr. & Súper Fly
5) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
6) Fénix & Myzteziz vs Angélico & Jack Evans and Robbie E & Zema Ion
7) El Mesías & El Patrón Alberto vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Texano Jr.

Air Date: 11/22 and 11/29 – this appears to be a two show taping, which is a mild surprise given how many tapings they’ve got lined up in a short time.

A couple rematches from Heroes Inmortales, including the main event. It seems to me that if you just had to beat Alberto quickly to build up suspense for Guerra de Titanes, it would’ve been just as easy to do it in Leon as it would’ve been in SLP where it wouldn’t have be as damaging to Alberto. AAA did what they did, so now I’m confused why they’d bother doing the match again. Texano beating Alberto or Alberto beating Texano seems counter productive (both ought to be protected from now until the 7th.) Maybe something with Mesias and Perro?

Semimain has the tag champs in Jack & Angelico. It’s listed as non-title

Robbie E & Zema Ion (going five years and one name change between AAA appearances) are in from TNA but likely not booked thru TNA. TNA wrestlers are free until January to book themselves wherever they want as long as they’re not broadcast in the US, and AAA fits that. AAA had previously said they were done working with TNA after Jarrett had left, so that’s another reason to believe the wrestlers worked this out on their own. (In more positive promotional alliance news, this week’s WON mentioned AAA is talking to Wrestle-1 about working together.)

The last foreign tag team to come in to face Jack & Angelico got multiple vignettes (mostly on the website), had one match, and were never spoken about again. Zema Ion’s own previous appearance – as Shiima Xion – seemed to be cut shorter than it was intended to be. It seems like decent odds he and current Amazing Race participant Robbie E will be around a little longer this time – with another taping on five days later, it’s probably worth keeping them around a few more days to get two shows out of the flights.

The Myzteziz & Fenix team follows up on Myzteziz praising Fenix after the Copa Pena tournament. AAA seems to want to use Myzteziz to get over their younger guys – this may be the start as Fenix as La Sombra.

Psycho Circus versus the Hell Brothers should led into a trios title match. It’s tougher to pinpoint exactly when these matches will happen; AAA will need a main event for Guerra de Titanes, but they’re just as likely to do any important undercard matches on the 11/28 show in DF as on the official year end show. It’s the power of Mexico City (and a way of freeing up some of these guys for other roles on the second show.)

Fourth match on the top combines two of the ongoing midcard mask feuds from this year. We’ve been kind of expecting one or the other or both to have their mask match at the end of the year. Maybe we’ll have a better idea of which one, or perhaps this is a setup to a relevos suicidas where no one will know which one is happening until it does. This match itself should be pretty good.

Faby & Taya continue to feud (rematch at Guerra de Titanes?) Joe and Taya being around early means they’ll be around the main event too. Openers mini match should be fun. Dark match figures to be Bobby Lee Jr. special (he’s seems to always be on the Leon shows as a deal with the commission.)

Next taping is 11/22. Maybe we’ll get that one in five days?

Guerreros vs Ingobernables, AAA in Tijuana

Low stakes for tonight’s Arena Mexico show. CMLL’s already announced next Friday will be Rush vs Ultimo Guerrero, so tonight’s Ultimo Guerrero, Niebla Roja and Gran Guerrero vs Ingobernables match will feed into that. Best match on the show might be the Delta, Guerrero Maya, Dragon Lee versus Mephisto, Ephesto and Hechicero tercera, which is 50/50 to make TV in any form.

AAA has a loaded show in Tijuana. This is the show Alberto ended up on instead of the WWC ones. He teams with Demon and Parka versus Perro, Texano and Villano IV. Pentagon Jr. says he’s returning from an injury break to be on the card. He wasn’t listed on the original lineup but must be in for Daga. AAA’s talked for years about returning to Tijuana for a taping. The last one there was 2005, and it was a regular stop up until 2001. A good turnout tonight might give them momentum for a bigger show there next year.

Today’s DTU press conference is giving away 30 t-shirts to the first fans who show up.

The WWE employee who allegedly made racist statements and was slapped by Alberto el Patron for them left the company sometime in the last month.

Dorian Roldan gave a presentation about AAA’s move to the US at the Sports Innovation Summit.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update, including news on a new promotion planning to run Arena Puebla and Arena Coliseo. I’ve heard of another promotion planning to run Arena Coliseo this year; CMLL used to rent that out for Luchas 2000 shows (who are a sponsor on these) and for Toryumon but hasn’t done it nearly as much in recent years. They are running a non-wrestling function next week: there’s a national televised boxing event on 11/01.

Segunda Caida reviews the Negro Casas & Shocker first title defense and Lucha Azteca 09/06/14. There is another tournament coming in another month, Eric. Do not watch that tournament. It is no good. Go watch lightning matches on CMLL’s YouTube channel or something.

Hijo del Santo was at last night’s NXT tapings: he posted photos with Black Magic and Sin Cara II. Santo Jr. was there as well. They used a couple minis in a skit on the show but I’m not sure which ones.

Camaleon is listed as working in Arena San Francisco tomorrow. He’s been out of action since he was hit by a truck early this year, and was using a cane to help walk as recently as a month ago.

Cachorro is off Twitter for the time being.

Bengala is preparing to run in the Enmascarados Race.

An AAA spot show on 11/15 appears to include the returns of Atomic Boy and La Chiva.

Hector M. Zepeda made a 29 minute Titan highlight video (mostly focusing on his singles matches.)
