AAA TV (SUN) 07/03/2016 Centro Civico Nueva Aragon, Ecatepec, Estado de México[+LuchaTV, AAA]
1) Atomic Boy, Gotita de Plata, Lanzeloth, Venum b Herodes Jr., Soul Rocker, Súper Fly, Tigre Cota
Venum beat Soul Rocker. Gran Apache wasn’t in the match, but didn’t let that stop him from continuing to attack Venum for no particular reason.
2) Argenis & Australian Suicide DQ Daga & Joe Lider
Los Fronterizos attacked the Perros, which somehow cost the Perros match by DQ.
3) Fénix b Drago, Aerostar [#1 Contenders, AAA CRUISER]
Moved up to the fourth. Aerostar was barely able to participate, left on a stretcher and apologized for his performance, saying he had an ankle injury. Fenix gets a shot at Fantasma at some point, but got attacked by Zorro after the match.
4) Bestia 666, Damián 666, Nicho el Millionario b Bengala, Garza Jr., La Parka
Dropped to the third match from the 5th. Bestia was the surprise rudo, making his return to the promotion in a win.
5) Brian Cage b Texano Jr., Dr. Wagner Jr.
Moved up to the fifth. Cage beat #1 contender Dr. Wagner and wants a title shot of his own.
6) Pentagón Jr. b Psycho Clown © [AAA LA]
To start the show, Psycho Clown came out to talk about his recent losses and Pentagon hit him with a chair. Pentagon is the new champ, Psycho falls on his second defense after Pagano attacked him and Pentagon used the Penta Driver for the win.
Air Date: 07/09 & 07/16 – give or take a week.
Pretty cool to see Pentagon Jr. win a championship, I have to say, though this one was in service of the Psycho/Pagano feud. This was the seventh non-tag (singles/three way) match Psycho Clown’s had this year. He’s lost five of them, and he’s won the time he won this title (where Wagner unmasked him after the match) and he won the LWC qualifying match. Psycho has to be winning in a big way at TripleMania at this point.
Cage getting into the title picture seems like a good use of him. Nice to see Bestia back, and I’m a little curious about the timing in ways I’m not allowed to see due to NDAs. Fenix winning the title shot was expected, though I don’t know why Zorro is still getting involved in there. I wonder if Aerostar has been dealing with this injury for a while; it’d explain what happened with the match length at the AAW show. I’m begging AAA to do one of those filler interview pieces with Apache to explain what’s supposed to be going on with his feud.
It looks like AAA filled the place. It’s not a big building, but AAA ran a lot around Mexico State this weekend – Arena Neza & Arena Lopez Mateos both got shows – and they still did fine.
AAA’s site is currently down – the domain renewal gets them every couple years – but it should be back soon. Their next show is Friday in Gimnasio Juan de la Barrera.
