AAA TV (SAT) 05/02/2015 Lienzo Charro, Pachuca, Hidalgo [AAA]
1) Mary Apache & Taya Valkyrie b Faby Apache & Keira
Taya beat the debuting Keira with a Northern Lights Suplex and a double stomp.
2) Angélico & Jack Evans DQ Dark Cuervo & Dark Scoria
Tecnicos won via DQ (Scoria foul on Angelico) and were attacked after the match. Cuervo & Scoria dropped them with martinetes, then attacked them again as the doctors were trying to load them into the ambulance.
3) Electroshock, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Kronos b El Elegido, Monsther Clown, Murder Clown
New (unnamed?) trio won with a triple team cutter on Elegido.
4) Psycho Clown b Zorro, Averno [Copa Victoria Mexico Team 2 Selection]
Psycho took the last spot on Team Mexico 2 with a Canadian Destroyer. Electroshock’s group attacked Psycho after the match.
5) Chessman © DQ Blue Demon Jr. [AAA LA]
Seconds were Parka & Cibernetico. At the start of the show, Blue Demon came out for a promo where he insisted his title match with Chessman be called using normal rules – no chairs, no fire. That happened, but (of course) Demon looked like a fool in the end when Chessman framed him for a chair shot at Hijo del Tirantes called the DQ. Chessman defense #1. Sociedad attacked after the match, with Fenix & Alberto making the save. That led into the main event.
6) Brian Cage & El Mesías b El Patrón Alberto & Fénix
Brian Cage beat Fenix with the Weapon X. Cage attacked Alberto post match and demanded a title match.
Air Date: 05/23 & 05/30
A lot of rudo wins, with only Psycho Clown getting his hand raised as a tecnico without being low blowed – and that one just sets up some more rudo victories down the line. Lucha Underground just had a story where a trio that didn’t like each other put aside their differences just enough to win an important trios tournament. The chance of Psycho, Texano and Fantasma repeating that seem to be about 5%.
The Chessman/Demon story is open ended enough that they could come back to it again for a rematch if they need one on Verano de Escandalo or TripleMania, or they can say Demon got his match and just move on to whatever.
Psycho Circus vs Electroshock/Pirata/Kronos (no ‘z ‘now) also seems like a match that might happen on one of the two big shows in the next few months or might be forgotten about entirely.
Building up Escoria & Cuervo feels like a big priority here; they got a bunch of TV time yesterday to explain their motivations and lay out their opponents again. (Weirdly, Mesias has gotten about no TV time for the same purpose, but then he also doesn’t appear to have a match coming up soon.) My guess is it’s only about trying to make this feud work, since Escoria & Cuervo have been very minor characters for quite a while.
The next show is the 05/24 World Cup, but there’s likely to be a press conference or two before that. I’d guess the other teams start getting announced in the next week.
