Air Date: should air live on 03/15. Looking like TV starting 03/28 and onto 04/04. Still no iPPV details; I’ll share them when I know.

Main event is exactly what seemed to be teased Monday night, the duo of Myzteziz & Rey Mysterio against Hijo del Perro Aguayo and arm murderer Pentagon Jr. Misterio & Myzteziz are currently riding a 3 match win streak, though it’s been a little bit of time since their last win. Rey on this show, his first match back as a member of AAA, is the draw they needed.

Texano’s was originally my bet to win the Rey de Reyes, to boost him back up to set up a rematch with Alberto for the title at TripleMania. They seemed to be moving towards Perro/Myzteziz at the moment and Alberto needs someone to work worth. However, Alberto not putting the title up against Cage suggests they’ll still be together for some time to come, and so the Rey de Reyes outcome is a bit unclear. You can flip a coin between Texano and Psycho Clown, both have reasons to win. The hints have been pointing to the (curiously missing) Electroshock/Pirata/Kronuz trio getting in line for the trios title, and them getting involved could point it back towards Texano. Mesias wins enough big matches that he doesn’t need this and Aerostar seems lucky to even get this far, but I also don’t think either of them can be ruled out because there’s no strong favorite.

Disappointed Alberto/Cage is non-title. I’d like to see the Mega title defended more often than once every six months – every three months doesn’t seem like a big ask if we’re meant to care about it. I’d like to see Alberto just run thru people for a while and being in a non-title match suggests he’ll continue to go 50/50 on major shows. I see the value in Cage and even a longer program with him in some cases, but I also the value in just giving Alberto wins right now.

Hell Brothers trio is a near repeat from TV, with La Parka moved out to being a second and Angelico & Jack getting to team. It looks like they’re running in place and the title match should be above that one, but not sure Demon would be so thrilled about working in the (virtual) second match. Having him in the tercera probably took some convincing – though with Rey, Myzteziz, Alberto and others here, Demon’s value to AAA is not as much as it used to be.

Opener should be really good. There’s problem that Super Nova’s already been announced as working in IWRG that day, but I think that’ll figure itself out.

My hunch is the two other matches are locals, but it’s always possible they could sneak more AAA wrestlers on here. (I’d be surprised if Taya didn’t have a role on the show somehow, for one.)

It’s surprising AAA didn’t announce all of this yesterday and it’s coming out other ways. They wanted the Rey/Myzteziz/Alberto trio to be the peak of the press conference, but they could’ve handed everyone the card as it came out, or made some other big public announcement. It did seem like that was the plan at one point – the iPPV announcement and the teaser for the main event both suggested they’d be talked about at the press conference and neither was mentioned. More info should be coming soon enough.

Assuming the iPPV price isn’t crazy high, and assuming the tech is okay, this seems like an easy buy for AAA fans and people who just know the names from elsewhere. Fenix/Fantasma and Cage/Alberto play off perfectly for people who just watch Lucha Underdground (assuming they know Fantasma->Cuerno), and that’s a pretty good match for Rey’s return.

4 thoughts to “03/15 AAA TV Lineup – 2015 Rey de Reyes”

  1. Last year AAAmania and Guerra de Titanes had 6 matches each, so this might be also a 6 match show, maybe the designer thought of placing the top 4 and added the “2 luchas mas” tag, but then included all 6 and forgot to remove the tag. The podcast should clear that up. It seems AAA was busy with events or visits to their sponsors to complement Tuesday’s event (that was open to the press).

    It might be time to turn Mesias rudo, attacking Psycho Clown could make the trick, winning Rey de Reyes would put him in a title match vs El Patron, AAAmania is too close but maybe building a hair match for December, and having Catrina show up to place him in the Mil Muertes mask, assuming LU starts airing after that. They could say that “Pascual Mendoza” actually died as a kid and is possessing Banderas or something wacky in the Zorro mask vibe.

    Wonder if the opening(?) match is the start to the “eliminatoria” for second AAA team spot at the World Cup… The press conference blew everyone away, but it was actually very lacking in terms of substance. They only gave the date, a Saturday, and odd day for MxC or Monterrey tapings. Maybe it could be a 23 and 24 deal with only VIP (sponsors) attendance at the Cancun Hard Rock and airing on PPV (and later on special shows in Televisa) not even in the Gala rotation…

    Or maybe the event will be postponed, it is barely 2 months away so most of the “big name” talent might be booked already. They totally should invite CMLL, and while they’re at it… WWE xD

  2. Very good card, but I was hoping to see Demon/Chessman in a bloodied title match brawl.

    Also, is there any chance we see Villano IV in AAA again? And where the hell is he these days anyway?

  3. Villano IV is working has an office job in AAA’s talent relations department, and at the shows to help work out matches. He’ll probably pop up as a substitution again but very rarely.
