photo via AAA’s Twitter

AAA TV (MON) 06/19/2017 Poliforum, Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas
1) Big Mami & Niño Hamburguesa b Lady Shani & Venum [AAA MIXED TAG]
vacant titles following Sexy Star quitting the company (apparently over refusing to lose them) and Pentagon Jr. forfeiting them after defending them 2 v 1. Mami & Hamburguesa won qualifying matches. Venum got his shot from the Oro de Oportunidad and picked Shani as his partner. Hamburguesa & Mami are the 14th champions, both winning an AAA title first.
2) Dark Cuervo & Dark Scoria © b Hernandez & Máscara de Bronce [AAA TAG]
First defense. Hernandez didn’t get along with Bronce (and it’s unclear why they were a team getting a title shot except to break up.) Kevin Kross took Bronce’s title shot case after the match.
3) Carta Brava Jr., Mocho Cota Jr., Soul Rocker © NC Aerostar, Drago, Raptor [AAA TRIOS]
would’ve been second defense. Poder del Norte won via foul, but Vampiro threw out the match and declared the two teams would have a series of matches. The length of the series was left unspecified.
4) Marty Martinez b Texano Jr.
Billed as a Lucha Underground match. Killshot was advertised for this show, did not appear.
5) Estrella Divina b Pimpinela Escarlata
At some point in the show (maybe after this match), Averno attacked Pimpinela, but Sangre Chicana made the save.
6) Averno & Súper Fly b Argenis & La Parka
Presumably intended to be a tag match, but mostly a Argenis vs OGT match with no La Parka. He showed up later, apparently having been attacked backstage. OGT fouled Argenis to win. (Vampiro did not annul this result.)
7) Dr. Wagner Jr., El Mesías, Kevin Kross b Hijo del Fantasma, Pagano, Psycho Clown [Relevos Increíbles]
Billed as a relevos increíbles though Pagano is essentially a tecnico now. Texano distracted Fantasma to set up Kross’ win.

Air Date: 07/15 and 07/22

This was the usually 0 for 7 on advertised matches. Usually, everyone ends up on the show but in different matches. This time, 8 people (Ricky Marvin, Killshot, Taya, Faby, Mamba, Australian Suicide, Bengala, Lanzelot) all missed the show. Taya mentioned on Twitter that she was out due to injuries suffered from a drunk driver hitting her car last week. They might have not brought Faby without her. Marvin appears to be working spot shows but not TV. Killshot hadn’t mentioned AAA at all and I’m guessing plans changed there some time ago and AAA just didn’t say anything. The other are more interchangable, and there were people changed onto the show in their places, but it’s odd that Mamba didn’t wrestler on her hometown after being advertised.

The mixed tag title match happened out of nowhere but Mami & Hamburguesa were the obvious winners when the concept was announced. They keep doing bits where Mascara de Bronce loses the briefcase, so maybe they’re heading to a ladder match for it or something (pulling in guys like Kross and Hernandez and anyone else who doesn’t have something to do.)

An Aerostar/Drago/Raport vs Poder del Norte series of matches sounds fun, but it’s hard to believe AAA will carry it out in any way that makes sense with how scattered everything is at the moment. Not announcing how many matches the series sure seems like a sign they haven’t planned this out yet. (It probably should be three, to squeeze it in time for TripleMania.)

I suspect Texano/Marty won’t air. Divina beating Pimpi is a random finish but maybe a win going back later. They had set up Divina & Mamba versus Pimpi back in Arena Aficion, but that’ll be about six TV weeks before this show, hopefully they’ve taped something more in between that we haven’t been told about. The top two matches continued the usual feuds.

working TripleMania 25 card for August 27, version 1.1. Italics indicate match not official.

  • Psycho Clown vs Dr. Wagner Jr., mask vs mask
  • Johnny Mundo (c) vs Hijo del Fantasma vs Texano Jr. for all three AAA championships
  • a dream battle royal with Lanzelot and TBA (Sangre Chicana? OGT?)
  • probably Mesias vs Pagano in an extreme match
  • maybe something with the OGT vs Parka/Argenis/Ricky
  • maybe something with the #1 contender shot (Mascara de Bronce, Kevin Kross, Hernandez?)
  • perhaps Aerostar, Drago, Raptor versus Poder del Norte for the AAA Trios Championship
  • perhaps Faby Apache vs Taya for the Reina de Reinas title

Next taping is a week from Friday, June 30 in Puebla. That’s the farthest ahead lineup we have right now, with Monterrey not happening for about four weeks.

Hechicero keeps title over Atlantis, Volador/Cavernario tonight, IWRG FILL tomorrow

Negro Casas & Dragon Lee

CMLL (MON) 06/19/2017 Arena Puebla [CMLL]

6) Hechicero © b Atlantis [NWA LH] LA MEJOR LUCHA LIBRE EN VIVO DESDE LA ARENA PUEBLA 19 DE JUNIO DEL 2017 (posted by VideosOficialesCMLL)
Hechicero took falls 1/3 to retain. 3rd defense

Main event was pretty good, about as good as you’re getting from Atlantis in a singles match outside of September. Hechicero did the his SSP that he’s been doing of late and not really landing all that cleanly, and this time landing not that cleanly meant his knee smashed Atlantis’ nose. Atlantis was bleeding thru the third fall.

The rest of the show was rushed and they still went pretty long. At least I know now why they bothered to do the women’s match, since that’s a feud now. Ares & Espiritu actually interacted at the end of their match.

Tonight’s CMLL show should be one of the best Tuesday night shows of the year. It’s an oddly loaded lineup with 2 for 1 ticket discount which should provide a lot bigger crowd than usual. The main even is a rematch of an excellent match from last year, Volador putting up the NWA Welterweight Championship against Cavernario. The caveman has won in straight falls in the last two matches. A title change is unlikely but it’s likely the match will be pretty good.

The semimain has Caristico & Mistico teaming up again, with Valiente as the third partner, against the Hijos del Infierno, which looks good. The fourth match has Blue Panther, Fuego and Drone taking on Cuatrero, Sanson and Sam Adonis, which looks good. The third match has the Panther brothers & Pegasso against Puma, Tiger and Virus, which looks good. The second match has Magnus, Metatron, Oro Jr. versus Akuma, Canelo Casas, and Sangre Azteca, which looks….not so good. The opener is a minis match that’s probably skippable too, but it’s going to be a good night if you tune in about 40 minutes after start time. The show proper starts at 7:30pm on CMLL’s YouTube page.

Guadalajara has the return of Diamante Azul, teaming with Marco & Niebla Roja versus Pierroth, Rush and Shocker.

Lucha Libre y Pasion announced Marty Scurll is coming in for their next show (which I guess confirms they have a next show.) No date, location announced. It’s also the oddness of a ROH/NJPW wrestling coming to Mexico City and apparently not working for CMLL or Lucha Memes (though I suppose this could be an extra match part of the Gran Prix?)

Rush faces LA Park on 07/29 in Arena Lopez Mateos on another Super Astros show. No word yet who else will be on that show.

Freelance/Mike Segura is currently listed on the DTU show in Arena Roberto Paz (Guadalajara), the Invasion Independente show in Arena Neza, and the FILLM in Arena Lopez Mateos show on July 1st. That’s not going to work. Dulce Garica (Sexy Star) is also listed on the Arena Neza show, after previously said she’s not wrestling any more in Mexico.

AIW posted the Flamita vs Alex Daniels vs DJZ match from last year. It’s a real fun match you should go out of your way to watch. AIW’s Chandler Biggins passed away early this morning. I didn’t know him outside of listening to AIW’s wildly entertaining podcast, but the news knocked the air out of me when I heard it this morning. My condolences to everyone who knew him.

+LuchaTV’s latest podcast has interviews with Hugo Savinovich, Ultimo Ninja, Draztick Boy and Flamita.

AULL referee Sovietico passed away.

LuchaWorld has this week’s Poster-Mania.

Black Terry beat Latigo in the main event of the Rudos Neza show.

51 year old Blue Demon says it’s too early too think about a successor.

Lady Flammer won the LLF championship.

Mortiz won Crazy Frank’s hair in Tijuana.


IWRG FILL (WED) 06/21/2017 Arena Naucalpan
1) Destructor, Dinámico, Drnazer vs Craken, Matrix Jr., Satán X
2) Fly Tiger, Keiser Drago, Voltar vs Adrenalina, Guerrero 2000, Warrior Jr.
3) Blue Monsther, Celestial Boy, Shadow Boy vs Acero, Auzter, Vórtize
4) Dragón Fly, Kanon, Leo vs Lunatic Xtreme, Skanda, Toxin
5) Ángel Oriental, Aramis, Atomic Star, Black Dragón, Demonio Infernal, Diablo Jr., Dinamic Black, Power Bull vs Aeroboy (Estado De México), Alex Pain, Centella Salazar, Dani Barrio, Homerito, Payachucho, Stone Magic, Último Conde [Copa Higher Power]
Gym FILL (Bombero Infenal) versus Gym Cuatitlan (Robin Maravilla)

There’s a Wednesday show announced on Tuesday, seems about right. The main event has students from Arena 23 de Junio as the opposition.

CMLL (MON) 06/26/2017 Arena Puebla
1) Asturiano & Vega vs El Perverso & Joker
2) Estrellita & Sanely vs Amapola & Dalys
3) Espíritu Maligno, Fuego, Pegasso vs Ares, Arkángel de la Muerte, Canelo Casas
4) Drone, Johnny Idol, Stuka Jr. vs Felino, Puma, Tiger
5) Dragón Lee vs Negro Casas [lightning]
6) Pierroth, Rush, Último Guerrero vs Niebla Roja, Rey Bucanero, Terrible [Relevos Increíbles]

Main event is bad? Probably bad! I’m excited for Ultimo Guerrero’s invisible soccer moves.

Semimian should be better and fourth match has a chance. Women’s match has to be setting up Dalys versus Estrellita or Dallys versus Sanely. Probably the first one.

Ares & Espiritu are having a hair match in a few weeks based on long feud they haven’t been having, I’m assuming. It’s so dumb.
