The micros match was a success: the match was fun, they did much more than you’d expect, and there was a huge crowd for the Kid’s Day show. If anything, they should’ve had it later in the night, because it was really tough to follow the show they put on. Kid’s Day itself (and the discounted tickets with it) were a reason this drew well, but it seemed like they drew over 10,000 fans for a show where the only match really promoted was the micros. It was tough to figure out exactly how much they drew, CMLL never turned on all the lights, but they did sweeping shots of the crowd to show off a lot of people in the upper reaches of Arena Mexico. They’re taking this match to Guadalajara on Tuesday and that probably won’t be the last time we’ll see it. It may lose something if they do it too often, but it’s probably won’t be the last match they have.

Ending the show with a DQ mask pull was odd. Niebla Roja toned down his disagreements with his partners after the first few moments of the match, allowing them to have a main event that more fit Kid’s Day. The crowd was into everything the entire show, even the not so good first couple of matches. It felt like more like the old Mistico days than even the large crowds of other shows, with an audience more willing to cheer the tecnicos and boo the rudos than the group that shows up for the Anniversary show.

YoDeportes has highlights of Carstico & Discovery vs Ultimo Guerrero & Gran Guerrero. It looks like that show drew really well, as packed as the AAW shows in that building.

Mr. Leo won a four way elimination match over Freelance, Daga and Centvrion in Gimnasio Hercules for Kamicazes del Ring. Daga wasn’t actually pinned, leaving the match with a knee injury. He made no mention of the knee injury on Twitter, so it’s probably not much.

Powerbomb.TV announced Puma & Tiger will now face Guerrero Maya & Triton on their 06/11 show, instead of Los Traumas. Fly Warrior will also be on the card.

+LuchaTV says they’ll have a professional shot version of Zack Sabre Jr. vs Negro Navarro up on Monday.

04/29/2017 AAA TV results (Tlaxcala)


AAA TV (SAT) 04/29/2017 Paleqnue del Centro Expositor, Tlaxcala, Tlaxcala [AAA]
1) Niño Hamburguesa b Máscara de Bronce, Venum, Joe Lider
Hamburugesa beat Lider after Dalton Bragg appeared and attacked Joe. Hamburguesa earned a spot in an upcoming match for the vacant mixed tag team titles.
2) Argenis & La Parka b Chessman & Súper Fly
OGT came to the ring, but were interrupted by Ricky Marvin. Marvin introduced Parka & Argenis as his partners. Vampiro suspended Averno (???) so this became a 2v2 match. Argenis pinned Chessman
3) Carta Brava, Mocho Cota Jr., Soul Rocker © b Faby Apache, Monsther Clown, Murder Clown [AAA TRIOS]
explained as Vampiro ordering the match. The Clowns betrayed Faby for the loss. Psycho Clown tried to make the save but Kevin Kross attacked both him and Faby, causing Faby to be stretchered.
4) Averno & Pimpinela Escarlata b Mamba & Ricky Marvin
Chessman & Super Fly tried helping Averno, but Parka & Argenis countered them. Averno beat Marvin, then Kross beat up Marvin and Hijo del Tirantes.
5) Big Mami b La Hiedra, Goya Kong, Lady Shani
Mami will team with Nino Hamburguesa to face a yet to be decided team for the mixed tag titles. They celebrated together after the match.
6) Australian Suicide & Bengala b El Mesías & Pagano
Cuervo & Scoria cost Mesias & Pagano the match, and Mesias & Pagano were tense towards each other.
7) Kevin Kross b Psycho Clown
everyone else on the show ran in on this match, including Hijo del Fantasma (who was scheduled for this match but didn’t wrestle for unclear reasons.) Kross beat Psycho and took out a few other people.

Air Date: 05/20 & 05/27

AAA changed every match on the card, came up with stipulations which weren’t promoted before hand and ended the show with everyone in the building running in. Most every change could’ve been explained prior to the show, but AAA is doing it because they think it’s working and because they can.

The mixed tag team titles had been a useless championship for years, and ceased to exist over a year ago without anyone missing them in the meantime. There’s no real use necessity in bringing them back, but AAA has seemed to love Big Mami even before the creative change and she’s still featured as the star of pretty much every match she’s in, so maybe they have some plan here.

Vampiro’s making a lot of decisions that seem to backfire. The big storyline of the first season of Lucha Underground was Vampiro revealing himself to be the evil mastermind behind Pentagon, and Vampiro again revealing himself as Actually Evil is definitely in play here.

Those air dates are nearly a month away. All the changes and activity makes it hard to remember what happened when, more so when the show with it isn’t going to air for weeks. It’ll be that way for a while: AAA TV this week says the 05/20 Contla taping is still on, so every taping won’t air for at least three weeks for the foreseeable future. We should get that Contla taping as soon as Monday, given we already have the taping after it.

AAA takes two weeks off and returns for TV on 05/16 in Pachuca.
