AAA TV (WED) 03/18/2015 Auditorio Benito Juárez, Zapopan, Jalisco
Rey de Reyes, 2015
1) Ludxor & Venum b Carta Brava & El Apache
Bonus match 1. Ludxor pinned Apache after a top rope armdrag and a splash in about 10 minutes. Good match.
2) Faby Apache, Mascarita Sagrada, Pimpinela Escarlata vs Mamba, Mini Abismo Negro, Taya Valkyrie
3) Bengala, Drago, Súper Nova b Daga, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Súper Fly
Drago defeated Hijo de Pirata with mist in the eyes and his usual cradle (Dragon’s Tail on Lucha Underground).
4) Hijo del Fantasma © b Fénix [AAA CRUISER]
Great match, with Fantasma surviving Fenix’s Fire Driver and using it himself for the win. Fantamsa’s third defense. Fantasma insisted on handhsake after the match, but Fenix wasn’t down with it. Fenix accpeted – only for Fantasma to attack him a few seconds later. Dorian, Konnan, Taya and Perro came to the ring to brag and congratulate Fantasma. The rudos eventually started to attack the tecnicos again, and Rey Jr. appeared to make the save. Announcers were sure Rey was joining the Fenix/Myzteziz team.
5) Blue Demon Jr. b Villano IV
Replaced a canceled Alberto del Patron vs Brian Cage match. An echo of their match from last year, though they seemed to get more time and had a slow start as a result. Their punching woke the crowd back up. Both men bled and brawled. Demon submitted V4 for the win. They challenged each other to another match – a mask one – someday. Money thrown in.
6) Angélico, Jack Evans, La Parka Jr. b Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
La Parka replaced Blue Demon Jr., but Demon lent a hand (or a chair shot) to beat Cibernetico. Mesias immediately ran out to attack the tecnicos, leaving them destroyed and taking Parka’s mask.
7) Texano b Aerostar and Psycho Clown and El Mesías [Rey de Reyes]
Aerostar got in the dive from the light tower again, but was eliminated first by a Mesias spear. Parka attacked Mesias, leaving him for a Psycho powerbomb to eliminate him. Psycho & Texano had a long fight, playing off their TripleMania match. In the end, Maya stopped counting Texano down on a Canadian Destroyer, then fast counted to give Texano a win.
8) Myzteziz & Rey Mysterio Jr. b el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Pentagón Jr.
Good match, with Rey looking good in his return. Mysterio and Myzteziz did a couple of double dive spots. Rey beat Pentagon clean with a Canadian Destroyer. No Myzteziz/Perro angle.

More in the morning.

Lucha Underground 1×19: Grave Consequences

the matches

1) Aerostar [2] defeated Drago [1], third match in their best of five series (springboard splash, 8:10)
2) Big Ryck defeated The Crew (Mr. Cisco, Cortez Castro, Bael) in a no disqualification elimination match (6:15)
– Big Ryck urange Bael (3:22)
– Big Ryck cane assisted clotheslineCortez Castro (4:21)
– Big Ryck urange on a chair Mr. Cisco (6:15)
3) Fénix defeated Mil Muertes in a Grave Consequences casket match (14:43)

the developments

Aerostar defeated Drago cleanly, and they shook hands after. Vampiro pointed out that Dario’s Unique Oppurtinties, the prize for the winner, sometimes come with bad twists.

Konnan played chess with Prince Puma, emphazing the importance of strategy in his fight with Cage.

The Crew destroyed Ryck early, but Ryck made a comeback. He eliminated Cortez first, and took the rest of the match from there. Bael was next. Cisco, who had burned Ryck’s eye originally, tried to walk out. Sexy Star stopped him, and forced him back to the ring. Ryck destroyed Cisco, busted him open, and gave him a urange thru a chair.

Fenix versus Mil Muertes was an insane brawl. Mil Muertes took apart the bottom rope early, using the disconnected metal portion of turnbuckle to cut Fenix up with a blow to the head, and allowing them to move the casket in and out of the ring with ease. Muertes was a rabid animal, bitting at the cut and destroying Fenix repeatedly, only for Fenix to keep coming back. They fought in the ring, out of the ring, in the upper floor (teasing a suplex off the top of an overhang) and into the bleachers. The casket was used mostly as a weapon, with the only attempt at putting someone in the casket coming at the end. Catrina watched the match from nearby, not intimidated in the least by the violence. She got caught too close late and was taken out by a clothesline by Muertes, but recovered quickly and opened the casket. Fenix rope double stomped Mesias off the apron into the casket. Catrina grabbed Mil Muerte’s stone, licked it, tossed it, and closed the door.

Both Alberto vs Texano for the AAA Heavyweight Championship in a bullrope match and Prince Puma vs Cage for the Lucha Underground championship in a Boyle Heights Street Fight were announced for next week.

stray thoughts

Aerostar and Drago was another good match between the two. They started off slower than usual, but they had more time than usual so it was paced really well. Aerostar’s reverse springboard to the floor looked great, and the walking the middle rope headscissors was amusing. They’re working well together even though it’s still just a tecnico/tecnico dynamic, and they’re adding in enough each match to keep it fresh. This is working.

I was distracted during Ryck/Crew, but it seemed like a satisfying conclusion to the feud.

Main event was excellent and lived up to hype. It was similar to the Myzteziz/Perro Aguayo TV match in the blood (and made clear how Perro is going to be so over whenever he shows up here), but the brawling was more intense and crazy. They benefited from a US crowd that was not used to bleeding and biting cut spot that are a bit more common in Mexico, but they also had a billion spot ideas and got do all of them at a good pace. This is a match that started off strong – a Mil Muertes tope before the match, a Fenix dive early on, and a Fenix tope in the raised casket – and just never let up. I don’t have enough positive words to say about it.

This is actually the end for Mil Muertes, at least for now. Striker sold it like we might not see him again, like Mil was literally going to be buried underground. He does not resurface the next eight weeks of TV, though he did make a dark match appearance at the end. It’s great in that it sells the importance of the match, but it came off as a star making performance for both guys and they both could benefit from the followup.

CMLL (TUE) 03/17/2015 Arena México [CMLL, Yahoo! Deportes]
1) Fantasy & Último Dragoncito b Pequeño Nitro & Pequeño Universo 2000
Ultimo Dragoncito replaced Angelito.
2) Flyer, Magnus, Robin b Disturbio, Espiritu Negro, Metálico
3) Puma, Sangre Azteca, Tiger b Hombre Bala Jr., Súper Halcón Jr., Tritón
Hombre Bala & Super Halcon replaced Fuego & Pegasso on Tuesday.
4) Astral © b Mercurio [CMLL MINI]
Seconds were Electrico & Pequeno Olimpico. Astral took falls 2/3 to keep the title. Astral’s 3rd defense. Money thrown in.
5) Euforia, Pólvora, Rey Escorpión b Ángel de Oro, Blue Panther, Fuego
Fuego replaced Dragon Rojo Jr. Rudos took 1/3.
6) Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. b Ephesto, Luciferno, Mephisto

Minis match sounds good. Not surprised Hijos del Infierno are losing already and can’t find matching gear. Unsure how Fuego ended up out of the tercera and in the semimain with only one of those changes mentioned.

Shocker & Negro Casas kept the CMLL Tag Team championship in Arena Coliseo Guadalajara.

EVERY AAA MATCH AIRING TODAY (or early tomorrow morning)

Lucha Underground (episode 19, “Grave Consequences”), 8pm EDT

  • Aerostar [1] versus Drago [1], third match in their best of five series – match clip
  • Big Ryck vs The Crew (Cortez Castro, Mr. Cisco, Bael) in a no disqualification elimination match
  • Fenix vs Mil Muertes in a Grave Consequences casket match – match clip

There’s also another Konnan vignetteI finally figured those out last night. Wrestling fans: slow with metaphors.

People who were there believed Fenix versus Mil Muertes was the best match they’ve seen on the show, a brutal epic match. The promotion feels the same way, getting behind this episode. El Rey itself has heavily promoted this, including purchasing ad time on WWE Raw once again.

For a fun, this sounds like something to see. For someone tracking the chances of this show being picked up for a second season, the ratings outcome would also be something to see.

This is show two in a three episode group that ends a lot of feuds. Aerostar & Drago can’t end tonight, but the other two matches resolve those plotlines for now.

If you have an XBox1 and don’t already have access to El Rey, you can watch El Rey tonight. The SlingTV app for XBox1 was released yesterday, and comes with a 30 day trial of the service.

Rey de Reyes, on iPPV ($15USD), 10pm EDT

  • Ludxor & Venum vs Carta Brava & El Apache – unofficial, but likely to be a bonus match
  • Pimpinela Escarlata, Faby Apache, Mascarita Sagrada vs Mamba, Taya, Mini Abismo Negro – unofficial, but likely to be a bonus match
  • Bengala, Drago, Súper Nova vs Daga, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Súper Fly
  • Fénix vs Hijo del Fantasma © for the AAA Cruiserweight Championship
  • Angélico, Blue Demon Jr., Jack Evans vs Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
  • a replacement for El Patrón Alberto vs Brian Cage?
  • Aerostar vs Psycho Clown, El Mesías, Texano for the Rey de Reyes championship
  • Myzteziz & Rey Mysterio Jr. vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Pentagón Jr.

Those bonus matches appeared to be the plan on Sunday and Monday. It’s always possible different luchadors get sent back to Guadalajara. There’s been no hint of a replacement match for Alberto/Cage; it may still happen, but they haven’t advertised anything so expectations should be kept low.

High expectations for the show itself. It looked good before, the only match missing might have turned out to be the weakest one due to the circumstances, and they’re heavily motivated to make up for the mishaps.

I’ve got no sense about how the turnout is going to be. This is the strangest sequence of events I can recall and any level of turnout would make sense. It’s still Rey Misterio’s first match back, they’ve actually had more time to promote by being stuck in Guadalajara for a few days, so there are a few positive signs.

No idea how long this is going to go; they could easily go past 1AM EDT. The VOD was up pretty quick on the dry run of this in Mexico City; not sure if GDL will make a difference.
