The added match suggests someone was late: either someone flying in or the bus that drives everyone else. Not much really happening on either one of these shows.
There are about 50 different sites writing about Cain Velasquez over the last day. None of them really covers any new ground. Velasquez, Pentagon, and Psycho were also on TV Azteca to promote the concept. I haven’t seen UFC The UFC Espanol twitter account mentioned Cain at TripleMania in a video update. They probably would’ve been told to ignore the fight if UFC didn’t approve of it.
My theory as of this morning is the match will be Psycho Clown & Cain Velasquez versus Texano Jr. & Rey Escorpion. I don’t think Velazquez is going to be around much, if at all, prior to TripleMania. A tag match will cover for his weakness and allow AAA to promote the match without needing Cain to be there. It is also unlikely Velasquez is coming into AAA to lose, and Texano is the best choice of the three options to take a loss. AAA’s shown a Rey Escorpion promo for his feud with Psycho Clown so there at least was a plan for them to meet somewhere. There’s a lot of people in AAA and only 8 matches to fit them in, so squeezing both concepts in a tag match creates some space and
Konnan, on his podcast last week, strongly hinted towards the Young Bucks returning and a TripleMania rematch with the Lucha Brothers for the AAA Tag Team Titles makes the most sense timing wise. That would take Penta out of the possibilities for Velazquez. It would also mean Fenix loses the Mega title before TripleMania or there is no Mega title match on TripleMania. (Given who’s already busy and who could just as be used in other ways, it may make sense not to have a Mega title match at TripleMania anyway.)
Add an 05/19 in Villahermosa to the list of AAA tapings. Or potential tapings, since AAA also has a poster out for 05/18 in Tuxtla and hasn’t run a taping on back to back days in at least a decade.
The Impact versus Lucha Underground match happening on 03/04 as part of WrestleMania weekend is currently listed as Cage, Moose, and Eddie Edwards vs Drago, Daga, Aerostar, and King Cuerno. Johnny Impact (Mundo) was moved to a different match. Everyone believes King Cuerno has already been pulled from this match as part of leaving AAA – King Cuerno included! – so it is a little weird Impact bothered to put up a 3v4 graphic.
The Crash 04/13 in Auditorio de Tijuana
- Bestia 666, Mecha Wolf, and TBD vs NGD
- Carlito & Mesias vs Los Traumas vs Angel de Oro & Niebla Roja – new
The Crash is still advertising Black Danger, so they’re thinking he isn’t going back to AAA.
Coahuila luchador Killer Cat is retiring after 20 years.
An interview with Illinois based luchador SWAT Kat mentions he’s promoting a show with LA Park (“Tapia”) sometime next month, mentions having promoted a show in Madison Square Garden (???) and encourages everyone to go vote next week.
