Air Date: 06/06 – opener looks to be internet only. First one taping show since January.
AAA’s TV announced this show and a Nuevo Laredo 06/01 taping this evening. KrisZ found the lineup, and RobViper points out the other show is likely to be about the same. That may explain why Cage isn’t facing Alberto on this show, the first time that’s happened since he’s been in, since that’ll be the hook on the other one. First tapings in these towns since the early 2000s.
Parque Adolfo Lopez Mateos is a baseball stadium. It’s got a 7,000 capacity for baseball, who knows for lucha libre.
Important note: AAA promoted their next four TV tapings in their upcoming TV schedule without mentioning the World Cup. I haven’t watched the entire show and am unsure if it was mentioned elsewhere, but it doesn’t appear to be a conventional TV taping. That’s a surprising choice. I assume it’s still got a very good chance of being on iPPV, but it may affect how they book the show: is there a point to running a big angle to set up a TripleMania match if it’s not going to air on TV? (Maybe there is, if you’re running TripleMania in the same venue.)
(It’s also here where we have to note this show is not 100% guarantee to take place given the violence in Reynosa and maybe having a World Cup show to air might just be a solid backup plan. I hope it goes well, but probably good to have options.)
Not a lot to say about this taping. Cuervo & Scoria face again Angelico & Jack, and will probably face again at Verano de Escandalo in some sort of stipulation match. Cage/Alberto and Psycho/Texano look like likely matches as well.
