11/03 AAA TV Results (Tonala)

AAA TV (SUN) 11/03/2013 Domo de Parque Solidaridad, Tonala, Jalisco [AAA, Black Terry Jr. (flickr)]
1) Mary Apache, Mini Psycho Clown, Taya Valkyrie b Faby Apache, Jennifer Blake, Mascarita Sagrada
Cuervo again interfered to cost Faby the match. Post match promos, including Cuervo offering money for Faby’s hair again, set up a Faby/Jennifer vs Mary/Taya match with hair on the line.
2) Aerostar, Ludxor, Venum b Carta Brava Jr., El Apache, Pentagón Jr.
The new Cadetes del Espacio won in their debut (and have one more win than the CMLL version.) Venum & Ludxor pulled of a double spanish fly (or an original Spanish Fly) for the win.
3) Eterno, Juventud Guerrera, Steve Pain b Angélico, Australian Suicide, Jack Evans
The Anarquia won in their debut, Juvi winning with Final Justice.
4) Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Dark Spíritu b Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown
Secta challenged for a trios title shot after the win. Psycho Circus accepted if it could be an extreme match.
5) AJ Styles b El Mesías [TNA HEAVY]
Angelico was AJ’s second, Jack was Mesias’ second. Chessman, Fantasma and Texano ran in to disrupt the match, but the tecnicos ran them off. The idea was Mesias was hurt more by the attack, and Styles ended up winning with his calf slicer leg submission. Second defense for Styles.
6) Chessman, Hijo del Fantasma, Texano b Cibernético, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Fénix
Hijo de Fantasma was the unlisted luchador, as had been mentioned a few days prior. Fantasma pinned Fenix for the win.

Air Date: 11/09 and 11/16. Attendance looks pretty good.

Fenix’s “big push to the main event” is more “they needed someone to lose to the new guy”, which we probably should’ve seen coming. Still, maybe he had a good match before hand.

A wrestler defending a championship that’s not recognized by any promotion? AJ Styles fit in perfectly in Mexico. Judging from the pictures, they set up the run-in with a Konnan/Styles confrontation backstage. I’ve said this an annoying amount of times, but I hate it when AAA does angles where Konnan orders the lead rudos around. Texano’s world champion and that’s supposed to be a big deal, but he doesn’t seem that important if some one else ordering him around – Texano’s needs to have his own agency at all times. (Even though he still won the main event, this is also way too soon for Fantasma to be unsuccessful at anything.) Maybe it all comes off much better than it sounds. It’s very clear from the recap that the idea behind the run-in was to give Mesias an excuse in losing, since he’s going to be the guy who’s staying here and Styles may never be back to even the score. It’s better than a top guy losing clean to a guy who’s never coming back, but I hope AAA’s getting more out of this than that.

Still, sounds good debuts for both Juvi and Aerostar’s new groups. Two new trios and the La Secta/Psycho Circus feud will hopefully open up the trios titles to be more than “Psycho Circus and whoever they’re feuding with.”

I’m really not sure how many hairs are supposed to be on the line in that tag match. I thought it was said one last night, but it was actually said two on Facebook last night. I think one is more likely – mostly because there’s only person in this match who might actually get their hair cut – but wait and find out more.

I think there’s a 65% chance Ozz & Cuervo were announced for an AJPW tour they’re not going on (and may have never been meant to go on.)

Next taping is 11/15 in Queretaro, continuing the one week on/one week off pattern of late. Things look like they may pick up a little before the end of the year.

Alan Extreme unmasked, Bombero loses his hair, new DTU champ

IWRG (SUN) 11/03/2013 Arena Naucalpan [DJ Spectro, Estrellas del Ring, The Gladiatores]
***Castillo del Terror, 2013***
1) Bracito De Plata & Látigo b Mini Multifacetico & Voladorcito
Latigo replaced Mini Canis Lupus. Tecnicos had a mascot named Picolin.
2) Ciclón Black, Douki, Guerrero Mixtico b Dragón Celestial, Fulgor II, Imposible
FILL vs Rivera. Karate Kid was scheduled, but hurt a week prior. The returning Chicano was announced as replacement, but it ended up being Douki as new Neza member. Fulgor II replaced Fulgor I. Straight falls.
3) Apolo Estrada Jr., Decnnis, Fuerza Guerrera b Dr. Cerebro, Trauma I, Veneno
Hijo del Pirata was announced, but Veneno replaced him more than 10 days out. Apolo snuck in a foul on Cerebro.
4) Tony Rivera b Bombero Infernal [hair]
Bombero took the first. Tony took the second when Guerrero Mixtico (Tony’s second) hit Bombero with a chain. Team Neza tried the same thing again in the third, but Matrix Jr.’s second (Bombero’s second) got the chain, gave it to Bombero, and Bombero beat up Tony with it. Ref was taken out, Mixtico hit the ring and hit Bombero with a board, and put Tony on top for the win. Team IWRG protested to the commissioner but got nowhere, and Bombero lost his hair. Tony says this is his 56th hair victory. No post match challenges.
5) Alan Extreme L Pirata Morgan Jr., Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Canis Lupus, Trauma II, Golden Magic, Relámpago, Saruman, Oficial 911, Picudo Jr. [Castillo del Terror, mask, cage]
Ten minute minimum. Carta Brava was originally listed, but replaced by Hijo de Mascara Ano 2000. Centviron was originally listed, but replaced by Saruman after an injury. Escapre order when Pirata Jr., Golden magic, Saruman, Picudo Jr., Hijo de Mascara, Trauma II. Relampago went to leave, but dived off the top of the cage on top of everyone. Rudos beat up Traumas after. Canis Lupus left. That left Relampago, 911 and Alan Extreme, only Golden Magic came back in so Relampago wouldn’t be beat by the two tecnicos. Golden Magic got Relampago out of there, 911 escaped after a superplex/powerbomb spot, and Magic escaped after giving Alan a cradle piledriver. Alan Extreme is Alan Giovanni Perez Montoya, 23, from Mexico State, 6 years a luchador.

 

Very surprising Alan Extreme lost (though I guess that makes the Temerarios all unmasked, if they’re going to team up again.) Golden Magic went back in a cage, the biggest mistake you can make in IWRG, and lived to tell the tale. If IWRG is still heading towards Black Terry vs Tony Rivera, they didn’t tease it here.

AULL (SUN) 11/03/2013 Arena Lopez Mateos [@BatallaCampal (5), @BatallaCampal (6), @BatallaCampal (7)]
5) Delincunete II L Sangre de Lobo, ??? [mask]
Losing trio from previous match squaring off in an apuesta match (or at least that was the announced format; third person unknown.) Delincunete II is Raul Gonzalez, 20, from Guadalajara, 3 years a luchador.
6) Holkan b Yakuza [AULL LIGHT]
Yakuza came in as champion, but lost the title to Holkan.
7) Terry 2000 b Cerebro Maligno [hair]
Terry won the hair match, though Cerebro Maligno seems to have plenty of hair left in the photo after the match.

Maybe Maligno got his hair cut backstage, but it’s still there in that photo.

Ovett of Los Porros won the DTU championship in Arena Xalapa. Ciclope was the previous champ.

Dark Angel lost the Wonder of Stardom Championship to Act Yasukawa, which appears to finish up her time in Japan. She’s back in Mexico at least by the 11/16 Dos Caras retirement tour show.

AAA’s web video interview with Silver King, Texano Jr. and everyone’s new favorite interview subject Hijo del Fantasma is tonight at 8 pm.

Lineups

TxT (SAT) 11/30/2013 Gimnasio Juan De La Barrera
1) Rossy Moreno vs Lady Apache
2) Negro Navarro vs Heddi Karaoui
Championship match, unclear what championship.
3) Angel Blanco Jr. & Höruz vs Cien Caras Jr. & Máscara Año 2000 and Villano III & Villano IV and Pirata Morgan & Pirata Morgan Jr. [hair, mask]
4) Dr. Wagner Jr. & El Hijo del Solitario vs El Hijo Del Santo & LA Park
Format may be wrong.

Poster announces matches, but we’ll need a press conference to figure out what’s going on. Main event just has the pictures of the first guy and isn’t specific on if it’s a four way or a tag match. Second is listed as masks vs hairs and battle of families, but unsure how it works. Navarro & Karaoui are for a title, but who knows which one. Women’s match seems pretty clear! This is the last TxT show of the year; they’ll run 9 this year, down from 13 last year (where they stopped running shows in June.)
