AAA TV (FRI) 09/16/2016 Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo
1) Argenis, Dinastía, Faby Apache vs Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Lady Shani, Mini Histeria
2) Aerostar, Australian Suicide, El Elegido vs El Apache, Súper Fly, Taurus
3) Hijo del Fantasma © vs Daga [AAA CRUISER]
Fantasma fifth defense.
4) Dr. Wagner Jr., Rey Misterio Jr., Texano Jr. vs Brian Cage, El Mesías, Johnny Mundo
Garza Jr. & Taya are also listed as appearing. Taya will likely second the rudos in the main event, and I guess Garza Jr. is there either in case someone no-shows and/or to set up a match for Heroes Inmortales.
Air Date: 09/24 & maybe 10/01? This is either a overloaded show where one match will be on YouTube, or an underloaded show to be stretched over two weeks. We’d have more of an idea this weekend, if they announce a second taping in September on TV.
This is the usual Hard Rock resort show. Half the roster is working this show and has a fun weekend. The other half of the roster has two or maybe even three shows to work in outside of Mexico City this same night. That must’ve been interesting deciding who goes where.
Misterio does work another AAA show; maybe part of the deal for working TripleMania was to get this vacation. Dr. Wagner, who tried to cost the lead babyface in the promotion his mask on the last show, is apparently still a good guy.
Daga gets a cruiserweight title match, which makes no sense after TripleMania. Australian Suicide beat him, Australian Suicide is on the show, but wins and losses don’t mean all that much in AAA. What appears to be going on here is Daga is, even though Daga is remaining a rudo, AAA’s setting up him as the guy to get cheered in the mask versus hair match. Daga unfairly lost the Copa TripleMania and now he’s possibly going to unfairly lose the cruiserweight title when Suicide gets involved in some way. I’m not sure why that’s the idea, but it’s the only reason you’d do thing this way. At least the Daga/Fantasma match should be fun before the ending. (And I think Fenix lost his #1 contendership.)
Next announced taping is 10/02, Heroes Inmortales in Monterrey. That lineup isn’t coming out until after ColiseoMania this weekend at the least.
