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.
