AAA TV (THU) 06/16/2016 Arena Naucalpan [+LuchaTV, AAA]
1) Faby Apache & Mary Apache b Mamba & Taya
Mamba took the loss (so the Apaches still can’t beat Taya.)
2) Mini Histeria, Súper Fly, Taurus b Dinastía, Niño Hamburguesa, Pimpinela Escarlata
Taurus beat Nino.
3) Joe Lider & Pentagón Jr. b Damián 666 & Nicho el Millionario and Monsther Clown & Murder Clown
Psycho Clown came to the ring with his friends, and Pentagon Jr. took advantage to challenge for the LA title. It was agreed that if the Perros beat the Psycho Circus in this match, Pentagon would get a shot. They did, so he’ll challenge on the next show.
4) Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Zorro © b Aerostar, Bengala, Drago [AAA TRIOS]
3rd defense (2nd on TV). Zorro said he’d continue making the sinners of AAA pay.
5) Dr. Wagner Jr. DQ El Mesías
Wagner & Mesias argued at the top of the show. Texano appeared before the match, offering a title match to the winner. Wagner won when Mesias unmasked him and was caught.
6) Pagano b Psycho Clown
Bloody match. They brawled all over the place, including thru the locker room. Pagano won after they both went thru a table covered in thumbtacks previously from an upper level.
Air Date: 06/25 & 07/02
The building was sold out, as it always is when they come to Naucalpan. There are a couple interesting matches on this, but it’s the sign of some direction that’s most promising. All the guys on the AAA Lucha World Cup team, and the one international guy who’s a regular here, have matches going forward. Pagano still won the main event, so he figures into this somehow too.
It’s different (and better) to see the luchadors making those challenges/matches themselves. No notable Tirantes spots, though the finish to the fifth match seems strange.
In addition to Ecatepec lineup, AAA’s announced two more new tapings and the road map to the big event of the year.
- 07/03: Ecatepec
- 07/08: Mexico City
- 07/17: Oaxaca
- 07/29: Toluca
- a taping to be announced next week
- TripleMania, date to be announced next week
TripleMania is either 08/21 and 08/28, I think, which means the extra taping is early in August. These might be some one show tapings, because it’s a lot more often than they’ve been running as of late. The end of the Lucha Underground season likely helps with that.
I’ve assumed Mexico City is the make up Verano de Escandalo date. Might still be right, but the focus is clearly past that event (whatever they call it) – everything is about “the Road to TripleMania.”
