What happened:

even Vikingo’s misses are impressive

Kross beat up the tecnicos after the main event and helped beat them up after the semi-main. No matches were set up.

Aerostar & Monster Clown feuded heavily in their match, with Monster Clown winning cleanly after a Tirantes slow count (and maybe a screw up earlier.)

A Konnan promo threatened to bring dark times back to AAA and set up a Villano III Jr. & Blue Demon alliance. Neither of these things seemed to go anywhere during this show, though the segment did end with V3 Jr. & Blue Demon getting the better of Dr. Wagner Jr. & Galeno del Mal.

Mami challenged Maravilla before the match for a hair match, and Maravilla said no, Mami wasn’t on her level. Mami rammed Maravilla into a chair to set up the win and challenged again, with Maravilla again rejected the idea until Mami could cleanly defeat her.


AAA ended the show with the usual main event format. Rey Escorpion attacked Psycho Clown, Wagner & Demon brawled and wasted a lot of drinks. Pagano was involved to bleed and leap off things but this didn’t have much more than the usual main event otherwise.

a Pagano thing

The semi-main overachieved. The Monster Clown/Aerostar feuding was really good, to the point where it’ll be disappointing if they don’t settle things in the cage match. Nicho seemed sprier than expected from him at this point. Much like Kross, he didn’t really have a purpose here but he was good in what was asked from him. It appeared Tirantes messed up the count on the first finish but they smartly just kept going for about a minute more before trying it again and tried to turn it into an angle. Points for effort.

The Poder del Norte trios match flew by. I had it as over eleven minutes but it really seemed a lot quicker than that. Poder del Norte repeat as many spots as CMLL teams do, but they do things faster and with more impact than their matches, and these continue to be entertaining. Flamita & Octagon looked on through the match, with Vikingo being a little bit off. Vikingo being a little off still involved throwing himself out of the ring at a high rate of speed with no target.

This Hamburguesa match seemed like it fell apart in parts. It was really good in other sections; Arez/Shani was a combination worked better than expected, as did Dinastia/Hiedra. Hamburguesa seemed off, losing Dinastia on the start of a double team spot that seemed to throw them off for a while. His slipped on his plancha at the end too. This was a borderline match for me, with some moments that might be worth zoom through the rest.

everyone lived

The Spanish Fly spot to was crazier than anything in last week’s version of this match. The rest was a little bit slower and tamer, even with Laredo Boy doing well. Bengala & Maldito did their usual. This wasn’t bad and the finish was a good way to play off the chair shot from the previous finish, it just didn’t seem that overall memorable.

The show opened well. The tag opener had some good action and got done before it ended. The finish came as a bit a surprise – Mr. Iguana is getting a win wasn’t exactly expected – but it really was one that felt like either team could win. Komander looked cool and didn’t kill himself, which is an improvement by 50% over the last time out. The kids and families seemed to love Yesca. We’ve barely seen Parktia Negra but he looked like there’s a lot he can do.

Pressroom interviews:

A boring show with a lack of creativity in most matches. Audaz & Hijo del Villano III lost track of time; if there wasn’t a count out there, there’s never going to be a countout.

It is possible CMLL has seen the last of Diamante Azul.  He posted a vlog to his YouTube channel explaining he was unintentionally stepped on by Valiente on Sunday. That left Diamante Azul so injured that he will need emergency surgery and is out at least thru 2020. Azul mentions other injuries he’s suffered this year (the groin tear keeping him out the longest) and suggests he may just give up wrestling entirely. It is always more likely a luchador in a prime position will just come back and wrestle at an increasingly diminished level until promoters stop booking him and CMLL’s show no inclination to stop using Azul despite his health issues. Diamante Azul is a top guy by CMLL decision rather than popularity, CMLL’s not going to skip a beat without him and it might be a safer place without him. The irony of Diamante Azul being (nearly) retired due to injury is he’s nearly retired others – from the German suplex on Negro Casas a couple of weeks ago to the shot to the jaw that’s ruined the last couple years of Shocker’s life.

AAA is back on Twitch tonight from Torreon. TripleMania Regia is already set, but AAA also has another major card to announce in Guerra de Titanes. That card is probably coming out next week, and AAA may set up more matches for the show. It’s a good followup to last week’s card. It lacks something as obvious as the four way match, though there’s a trios match not far behind. The show starts at 8 pm local time; that’s about hour two of the AEW PPV.

Dr. Wagner teams with Pagano and Psycho Clown versus Blue Demon Jr., Chessman and Rey Escorpion in the main event. It’ll be the usual brawl, though it features a lot of people in the TripleMania Regia cage match. Aerostar & Monster Clown, also in that cage match, are on opposite sides of the semi-main with Murder Clown, Nicho el Millionario, Killer Kross and Taurus. Nicho is back for the first time since 2016, when he and Familia de Tijuana were in as rudos with Pagano. Kross hasn’t been gone quite that long, yet seems to be back to having no particular purpose with Velasquez seemingly done in AAA.

Poder del Norte have been the most reliably good trios in Mexico this year. They get Octagon Jr., Flamtia and Hijo del Vikingo in a match with high potential. Dinastia, Lady Shani & Nino Hamburgesa take on Arez, La Hiedra, and Villano III Jr. in the tercera; Arez has a long travel day after wrestling in Los Angeles for GCW yesterday. Keyra, Lady Maravilla and Ultimo Maldito team up once again versus Big Mami, Bengala, and a mystery person. That mystery person may end up being Big Mami’s new tag partner. The opener is La Parkita Negra & Mini Psycho Clown vs Mr. Iguana & Dragon Bane, who appears to be back after injury.

This is the first AAA taping in Torreon in 9 years. It’s also the biggest show in Torreon since the passing of Silver King. They may honor him on the show.

Lucha Central has a preview of the show.

On Twitter, Daga claimed he will not be returning to AAA unless it is for a title match: defending his Latin American championship or challenging for the Cruiserweight or Megachampionship. Daga is listed on the Ciudad Juarez show next Sunday in what is not currently listed as a title match.

AztecaDeportes quotes a source close to the luchador as saying La Parka is expected to be transferred to a hospital in Mexico City in the next week in the next step of his recovery.

Fuerza Guerrera told Reforma (via CriterioHidalgo) that he never had that mask match with Octagon because he doesn’t really believe Octagon is on his level. He feels Octagon was just a creation of the media and not really a Fuerza Guerrera level star. Guerrera also explains that when promoters ask to have him face Hijo del Santo, he only agrees if he gets the paid the same amount as Santo since they’d be opponents on an equal level. Fuerza Guerrera doesn’t end up getting many bookings at El Hijo del Santo. (Fuerza & Santo have been in the same match twice since 2013, one of those times in Japan.) This would be just a wild statement if said by others but Fuerza Guerrera is exactly that stubborn.
