AAA TV (FRI) 03/04/2016 Gimnasio Agustín Millán, Toluca, Estado de México
1) Goya Kong, Mascarita Sagrada, Niño Hamburguesa vs El Apache, Mini Psycho Clown, Taya
2) Aerostar & Drago vs Hijo de Pirata Morgan & Taurus
3) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Zorro
4) Pentagón Jr. vs Hijo del Fantasma, Fénix, ? [AAA Rey de Reyes, quarterfinal]
5) El Mesías vs Dr. Wagner Jr., Texano Jr. [bull terrier]
Air Date: 03/12 – probably one week with the opener being left off.
The main event and the tercera feel like Dr. Wagner is suddenly going to be elevated to the main event title match and Psycho’s going back to challenging for the trios titles. Could just be a fakeout. It’d be disappointing to see Psycho relegated, but Wagner versus Texano versus Mesias is a better draw than Texano versus Mesias.
Full Rey de Reyes blocks:
1: Dr. Wagner Jr., Blue Demon Jr., Garza Jr., Taurus (02/06)
2: Villano IV, Electroshock, Chessman, Jack Evans (02/19)
3: La Parka, Psycho Clown, Averno, Zorro (02/19)
4: Pentagon Jr., Hijo del Fantasma, Fenix, ? (03/04)
It’s possible Pentagon and Fantasma will be coming into this match having met in the mixed title match on the previous taping. The mystery man silhouette appears to be Flamita/Fireball again. The Toluca crowd is always great, and that match is a match of the year candidate on paper. Pentagon seems unlikely to advance because he’s got the tag title match. Whoever else wins this block needs to win Rey de Reyes or come very close. AAA needs new top stars and their best candidates are pretty much all in one block.
The segunda also looks very good. I’m wondering if Anarquia might be another one of those storylines that have been dropped with the the creative change, since Hijo del Pirata Morgan has been pulled out of the faction at the times to feud with Electroshock. There seemed to be two different directions for him at once, and it seems an easy guess Konnan was behind the one that had him part of a trio that was having good matches. Daga is actually pictured on the poster, but not in the match – maybe they were short one tecnico for this one?
Next taping has to be Rey de Reyes. (Which might mean we know the card before we know who’s advanced to the final of the tournament.) Given the SLP taping on the 23rd and when AAA will need TV, Rey de Reyes is March 13th if they run on a Sunday night as usual for a big show.
Edit: RobViper reminds me Drago, Fenix and Pentagon are already booked in
Atlantis Atlanta on 03/13. Maybe it’s Friday the 11th? The Tampico promoters, the people who were originally going to have Guerra de Titanes, had that show scheduled on a Friday. They hinted they were getting Rey de Reyes as a makeup, and promoters usually schedule on a certain day of the week.
