The Rey de Reyes tournament is back – and maybe in the traditional 4×4 format? – and I’m concerned our favorite man-bull’s win stream might be coming to an end. He’s pretty much got to hope for the Cibernetico Memorial double countout between Blue Demon & Dr. Wagner to take them out. (Wagner going to the finals to face Psycho Clown might make some sense.)
Semimain puts the tag champions champions against their next challengers. Ring crew will need to pack a good broom to clean the ring after the thumbtacks.
Sexy Star & Pentagon Jr. are the current mixed tag team champs. These belts have scarcely been seen outside of Sexy Star photo-shoots. They’ve won the belt on April 19, 2014. They have been champions for 646 days as of today. They have made zero defenses. It’ll be 658 by the time this show comes around, and who knows by the time the match happens. This is all irrelevant trivia for an irrelevant championship. If you can go nearly two years without defending the belt without missing it, then why do you have it? Political reasons maybe, which probably also dictates this result.
It’s not clear when the match would happen; AAA doesn’t scheduled two matches the same night, so one of the tag title matches are probably on Rey de Reyes, and one is a TV taping at some point. Bengala & Faby Apache make the most sense as opponents for Sexy Star & Pentagon. Fantasma & Taya seem too important for this match and already have their own titles; it’d suggest there’s some angle going on if they’re set up against their La Sociedad friends. I can only see Shani & Pirata winning if they’d just like to notch Sexy Star & Pentagon a defense. (It’d be the first successful one on TV since 2011.) I may be very down on this championship, but the group of people in this contenders match should make for a very good match.
The first three matches should be really good to – this is going to be to an entertaining show, regardless of the booking. Tercera keeps the new trios champions against a group of high flyers (who might make sense as challengers if they’re not pulled into the Rey de Reyes or something else.) Segunda continues the Suicide/Daga match, while getting Fireball on three straight tapings. Super Fly seems to be a new Daga ally with Steve Pain not around at the moment. Minis trios opener is the first AAA TV mini trios match in about exactly a year.
Following taping is on 02/19, as they continue taping every two weeks. There’s probably at least one more to be announced in early March, as well as the SLP taping and Rey de Reyes itself, though I’m not sure about the order of the last two.
