What happened:

this looked good

Hijo del Wagner put a Wagner mask on Pagano and beat him up as if he was his father, though I guess his father doesn’t wear that any more. Fur robes were not easily available. Tirantes worked as a rudo referee, helping frequently and then counting a normal pin for the técnicos at the end anyway. Rey Escorpión interfered late for no particular reason except to set up Hijo del Vikingo attacking him to even the odds. That was the only appearance on the card for both wrestlers.

Super Fly & Tito Santana came out with three teams. The Alvarados agreed to take them on, and Psycho Clown came out to add himself as well. Averno fouled Carta Brava, who remained laying on the mat as Máximo kissed Averno three times. Máximo pinned Carta for the win.

Parka Negra ran in to help the Perros del Mal, and La Parka evened it up.

Psicosis turned the tide in the match by putting the snake on Murder


2018 is a hard year for Ashley

The main event made me question why I was even watching AAA. It was so bad. It seemed good for the small children they were showing. It was still so bad to me. The wrestling was poor and lasted forever. I couldn’t believe how long the opening beatdown was going, thinking they must’ve not left time to have a comeback if the match was going to go 10 minutes before one. I was wrong, they had all the time in the world. And they had the two best wrestlers in the match watching the match backstage to do run-ins at the end that amounted to nothing. This match was going to be bad because everyone in it is not particularly good and was not interested in having a good match and they were doing the Tirantes stuff, but it might have been slightly not terrible if Hijo del Vikingo and Rey Escorpión were in the whole time. If you missed this one, count yourself as lucky.

The three way trios match was hard to follow and not that interesting when they slowed it enough down to make it easier to follow. Both rudos teams taking turns at holding an Alvarado down in the ring for an extended portion killed the momentum in the middle of the match. The Alvarados got the showcase here they didn’t get at Rey de Reyes, which was probably part of the idea. It just didn’t translate well to TV but seemed to get a good reaction from this crowd.

great bump Parka

The tag title match was a match that will be recorded as occurring despite not being good. Joe Lider used the stapler on his opponents. The opponents made the comeback and used the stapler on him. Mr. Aguila didn’t do a lot of impressive stuff and the version of this match with Parka Negra might have been better. Parka Negra did get come in and take a big bump at the end, so that was good for him.

At least the Vipers/Traidors match was short, and it’s not often you see a team win a match by using their pet snake. This was the kind of brawling match you’d expect with maybe less to it than you’d expect. I can’t recall anything Histeria actually did here, and the stuff the other three did wasn’t much.

proof of Vikingo’s existence

The second match wasn’t match. The Mamba & Pimpienla act can get a reaction but it’s much to watch. Estrella Divina isn’t as good as Faby Apache at being mean to Ashley, but at least they’re trying to keep this story going. The finish looked brutal and the match didn’t fall apart any point, and it’s about as much as I’d expect out of a Pimpinela match at this point.

The opener was a fun. They had energy and plans to do trincky things. It didn’t always work out, Dragon Solar seems a pretty spotty guy in particularly. It still was an exciting way to start the show. Bronco Gonzalez is still a pretty good base, saving a Solar spot from falling apart, and I wonder what’s happened where he’s not much a part of things. I can almost identify Fetiche out of a lineup now. Dinastia at least one pinfall win this year.
