AAA TV (SUN) 10/07/2012 Domo Centro de Espectaculos, San Luis Potosi [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), Fuego en el Ring]
***Heroes Inmortales, 2012***
1) Mini Charly Manson, Mini Histeria, Mini Psycho Clown b Dinastía, Mascarita Dorada, Octagoncito
Mini Charly replaced Mini Psicosis and beat Dorada with a foul.
2) Halloween & Mari Apache b Atomic Boy & Fabi Apache and Fenix & Lolita and Alan Stone & Jennifer Blake [AAA MIXED TAG]
Match was announced for vacant titles, but Alan Stone replaced Ultimo Gladiador and so the tag champs were reunited. Halloween replaced Gran Apache. Both may be explained on TV we haven’t seen yet. Sexi Star was guest referee, which was mentioned when the lineup was announced locally but treated as a surprise here. Gran Apache attacked Atomic Boy and powerbomed him on the floor. Halloween speared Fabi, then allowed Mari to have the honor of the winning pin. Gran Apache did a 180 on Halloween and talked him up to Mari, but Mari still left Halloween hanging when he went for a hug.
3) Joe Lider & Vampiro b Abyss & Chessman [AAA TAG]
Abyss & Chessman came in as champs. Usual hardcore match. Vampiro pinned Chessman to win the title. Abyss was angry about the title loss and beat up Chessman. Vampiro tried to make the save, but Chessman attacked him.
4) Texano Jr. b El Elegido, Extreme Tiger, La Parka Jr., Toscano, Daga, Héctor Garza, Juventud Guerrera, Último Gladiador, El Mesías, Heavy Metal, Psycho Clown, Alebrije [Copa Antonio Pena]
Battle royal and maybe royal rumble rules. Elimination order went Toscano, Extreme Tiger, Ultimo Gladiador (evidently replacing Zorro), Psycho Clown, Juvi and then no more were mentioned of it. Juvi suffered a shoulder injury and was strechered out. Elegido, Daga, Heavy Metal did participate and went out of during this span. AAA’s recap also mentions Alebrije being added to the match. Final four were Parka, Garza, Mesias and Texano. Garza and Park went out, and Texano won with a Konnan distraction and a foul. Texano said he respected Antonio Pena’s contributions – to CMLL – but refused to accept the trophy. Mesias vowed to send Texano back to CMLL. Referee Copetes ruled the championship vacant.
5) Jeff Jarrett, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Silver Kain b Dr. Wagner Jr., LA Park, Zorro
Zorro replaced Electroshock. Rudos won with a Jarrett chair shot to Park and destroyed Parka after the match.
6) Halloween L Cibernético, Cuervo, Jack Evans, Ozz, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Teddy Hart, Psicosis [dome cage, hair]
Last man out lost his hair. Teddy was accompanied by the two (unnamed) blonde women from Thursday’s Perros del Mal show. Order of escape went Cibernetico, Ozz, Psicosis, Perro, Teddy, Jack and finally Cuervo to leave Halloween behind. Both the Perros and Sect got involved when it came down to Cuervo and Halloween, with Fabi and Atomic Boy also attacking Halloween with a light tube, and Cuervo powerbombing Halloween thru a table.
Air Date: 10/20, 10/27
AAA’s Twitter also said there’d be about a surprise as far as how we’ll be able see the show. My guess is they’re upload to YouTube; they did that with both TripleMania and the expo show, and have done it for non-match footage from Ecatepec.
This is Halloween’s 3rd hair loss in 3 years. He lost his hair on the same event one year ago, in the Psycho Circus vs Perros del Mal masks vs hair match. I had hypothesized Halloween had been offered a reward for sticking in AAA when his friends had left; I might still be right, though I was off by one show. It’s Cuervo’s first hair match win in a decade; he won a few in the late 90s, when he was an indy guy wrestling in the likes of Arena Lopez Mateos. This is a result Arena Mexico fans would be mightily uphappy about – similar to Goya Kong losing her mask/scarf. I think AAA fans probably were hoping for a more significant result, but have been trained as to what AAA considers a fair result and aren’t (or shouldn’t) be surprised.
Don’t have an attendance number. Judging from Black Terry Jr.’s pictures – which you should click and check out up there – the top level/ring of the arena was empty (not sold?) and the luxury boxes were mostly unused, but the lower levels seem pretty full. Maybe in the 9,000 area, but your guess is as good as mine.
Not sure what happened to Electroshock. He worked Tinieblas show on Thursday and there’s no mention of an injury in the recap. Also curious is Hector Garza apparently being OK to work this show when he was too hurt to work the Perros del Mal show a couple days prior (but it’s nice he’s feeling better!)
I’m not quite sure why Texano is friends with Konnan, when Consejo was very specifically against everyone else and only forced to team with others them by decree. Konnan sure seems to be the brains behind every rudo faction at the same time. Perhaps this is explained on a vignette that I haven’t seen yet (though it wouldn’t hurt AAA to bring up these skits elsewhere.)
Next taping is 10/12, as posted earlier today. AAA has one more major show of the year, Guerra de Titanes. It usually takes place in early December. Every AAA major show has taken place on Sunday this year, so figure 12/09 or (more likely) 12/16. Maybe in Ciudad Madero, since they’ve not run TV there all year and have run major shows in the past.
Update: El Sol de San Luis Potosi estimates the attendance as “3/4ths full, 5,000 fans” That’s a lot smaller building then I had seen listed earlier this weekend (7, 500 instead of 11,000.) They also confirm the Copa Antonio Pena was Royal Rumble style, with Mesias and Daga starting out and joined by Psycho Clown, Elegido, Juvi, Tiger, Toscano, Glaidador, Texano, Metal, Alebrije, Parka, and Hector Garza in last. It’s still listed as 12 man match though that sure seems like 13 names.
