AAA TV (FRI) 10/09/2015 Plaza de Toros, Tlahuelilpan, Hidalgo [AAA]
1) Maravilla, Niño Hamburguesa, Pimpinela Escarlata b Argos, Lady Shani, Mamba
Lady Maravilla again wrestled as only “Maravilla”, probably to avoid confusion with SHani.
2) Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Súper Fly b Argenis, Australian Suicide, Bengala
3) Hijo del Fantasma, Joe Lider, Taurus b Angélico, Drago, Jack Evans
moved down a spot. Taurus was the mystery rudo and continued his winning ways, defeating Drago with a “Michinoku Driver con giro.” Pentagon Jr. appeared after the match to challenge Jack & Angelico to a tag title rematch.
4) Daga, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Steve Pain b Aerostar, La Parka, Súper Nova
Moved up a spot. Daga beat Nova. Australian Suicide attacked Daga after the match for unclear reasons.
5) El Mesías, Pentagón Jr., Texano Jr. b El Patrón Alberto, Fénix, Psycho Clown
Mesias defeated Fenix again, and took his mask again.
Air Date: 10/24, just one week of TV.
Tlahuelilpan is a blackhole for news coverage – this is a small town that has a big fair every year and brings in AAA as part of the entertainment – and apparently a blackhole for internet coverage too. No live results because they couldn’t get a signal. Last night was a tough night to lose internet access.
AAA appeared to know of Myzteziz’s plans when this taping took place and Argos & Argenis weren’t just immediately fired, so maybe they’ll be okay. Both of these brothers (and Mini Murder Clown) were added to AAA’s roster before Myzteziz started with them, but it was part of a long term recruitment plan to land Myzteziz when he would inevitably return to Mexico. Their positions would be iffy if Myzteziz left on good terms. Myzteziz is leaving on much worse than good terms. AAA can’t really do a lot to punish him unless they want to take this to court, but they can punish those related to him. Argenis has become actually fine enough for the position he’s in. Argos has not, and he’s got so little role as it that it would be tough to tell if he ever left AAA. (This is his first TV appearance in 16 months.) Argenis is also trios champion in Lucha Underground, but the role just calls for a generic skinny guy – if they had to, they could sneak someone else in the spot.
Thinking there’s something with Suicide & Daga in the segunda that wasn’t mentioned. That’ll be a fun feud. The recap didn’t mention if Pentagon still wanted Lider as his partner. As much as we might not want that, I’d assume that’s still the plan. Main event still points towards a Fenix/Mesias match to close out the year (and maybe a Fenix win since Mesias is winning all the build up.) They’re really going with Taurus, which is kind of amazing.
Next taping is a week from today in Reynosa. Myzteziz is scheduled in the main event. Averno’s on that card too.
