What happened: Jack beat Joe Lider and challenged for the tag titles. Mesias used a ref distraction to beat Parka.
What was good: nothing much. This felt like a televised house show with people taking it easy.
Where can I watch it: It’s on AAA’s channel and mine. I’m trying to stick with AAA’s version because it seems like they have a few vignettes which aren’t being shown on the national version. There were very brief segments in between each match on the TripleMania show, and this one had a skit that wasn’t on the Televisa version
They did have ads for Heroes Inmortales (focusing on the big three) and for the Antonio Pena memorial mass on 10/05. The usual upcoming lineups segment also aired.
Winner: tecnicos (Goya Kong powerbomb La Hiedra)
Match Time: 9:08
Notes: Referee is Piero.
Review: [ok] A regular mixed tag with nothing extraordinary but nothing too bad. It felt like a match I was forgetting as it happened, which may not be good or may just be me. Goya/Taya was as much the focus as anything; they did comedy fine. Crowd is really loud for this taping, which helps. There was a weird edit right before the comeback, right when Apache was about to accidentally slap la Hiedra. How does an El Apache slap go wrong?
Winner: rudos (Texano Jr. splash Murder Clown)
Match Time: 11:28
Notes: Hijo del Tirantes is referee
Review: [ok] A lot of the rudos stooging around for the Clowns and working at a slower pace. It never got going at a high level and the tecnicos took most of the match before their loss. Fantamsa’s offense having no effect on Monster Clown is a normal Monster Clown spot, but it’s a strange way to go for Fantasma. Even after Psycho Clown was taken out by his parnter’s dive, Monster Clown was still laying out the rudos 1 on 2 for a minute until they were finally able to get it together. This was never bad, but felt long even at ten minutes.
Winner: rudos (Mesias splash La Parka)
Match Time: 11:05 (4:29+7:28)
Notes: Referee was Piero. Mesias shoved Parka into Piero to distract him, then fouled Parka before landing the splash for the win.
Review: [ok] Another sleepy match, but this one felt like it really got going in the last few minutes. There were some rough stuff (a hurcanarana stuck out) but some impressive stuff with Cage, Pirata, Fenix and Drago. It’s not enough to recommend the match, but it at least redeemed it some.
Rey Mysterio, on a hover board, finds a mural of himself and is blown away. He’s very thankful. Mysterio talks about how he and Myzteziz were great partners during the Copa Mundial and he’s still surprised Myzteziz turned on him. Myzteziz didn’t betray Misterio, Myzteziz betrayed everyone.
Winner: tecnicos (Jack Evans 630 senton Joe Lider)
Match Time: 10:21
Notes: Tirantes is referee. Myzteziz tries attacking Mysterio, Mysterio takes him out with a headscissors, but the rudos still take advantage. Mysterio seems to get hurt near the end, but does so while taking out Myzteziz and Pentagon near the end. That leaves Joe Lider alone and beat by the other two. Angelico declares him and Jack the best tag team in the world and demands a title shot for Heroes Inmortales. Pentagon accepts.
Review: [ok] best match on the show, but a mixed bag. There are good moments, and then there are the usual stretches built around Joe Lider’s stapler. Joe Lider gets his shirt stapled over his head and is blinded for a while, which is at least a new weird thing to do. Lider does better with Jack and Angelico after those spots. Jack totally misses Pentagon on a dive. Mysterio run near the end was going really good until he seemed to fall off the top rope trying to leap for a dive. He seemed in bad enough shape that it’s surprising he was able to work the next show.
