I’m going to do a full preview of TripleMania Friday (I think), but inspired by some WrestleMania coverage, I did some research and worked up some stats on everyone who’s on the card right now.
Pro Wrestling History was a huge help for this. I used their card listings (which, come to think of it, we should have on one of these sites around here), and counted all the individual shows in years where multiple TripleManias were held.
1) Alfa, Cassandro, Fabi Apache, Mini Abismo Negro vs Cinthia Moreno, Octagoncito, Oriental, Pimpinela Escarlata
* This is Alfa’s first TripleMania.
* Cassandro is 0-0-1, having appeared last year in a match with no finish
* Fabi is 0-3, including losing two prior Relevos AAA matches at TM12 and 14.
* Mini Abismo is 0-6-1
* Cinthia Moreno is 1-0, with her only appearance in a TM12′s Relevos AAA opener
* I believe this Octagoncito is 6-0, and the prior is 3-0-1; I’m figuring everything starting with TripleMania V is the newer one.
* Oriental is 1-0-1, but hasn’t been on a TripleMania since 2002.
* Pimpi is 3-2-1
2) Cuervo & Ozz vs Crazy Boy & Joe Lider [AAA TAG]
* Cuervo & Ozz made their TripleMania debuts last year in the no-contest Atomico title match, under those names
* As Pathfinder, Ozz was 2-0, but had last appeared on TripleMania 8 from Japan.
* Crazy Boy & Joe Lider are making the TripleMania in-ring debuts
3) Juventud Guerrera vs Fuerza Guerrera [street]
* Juvi is 4-2-1 at TripleMania events.
* Fuerza is one of two to wrestle at the first TripleMania and on this show
** Martha Villalobos, Vicky Carranza, Lola Gonzalez, Octagon, and Konnan also appeared at the first TripleMania and are on the roster, but not wrestling for this show. Abismo Negro wrestled as Winners on that show, and may yet wrestle on this one.
* Fuerza has a 3-7 record, including losing the Mexican Tag belts to the Aguayos in 1998.
* As a team, Juvi and Fuerza are 2-0.
4) El Apache & Super Fly vs Laredo Kid & Super Calo [losers advance, pi]
5) Super Calo or Gran Apache vs Laredo Kid or Super Fly [mask, hair]
* Gran Apache is 3-2 at TripleMania, with a win last year.
* Both Super Fly and Laredo Kid debuted on TripleMania in last year’s Mexican Atomicos match.
* Super Calo is the other TripleMania I hold over. He teamed with Winners and Salsero to beat May Flowers, Rudy Reyna and Baby Sharon. Calo is 7-2, including winning Angel Mortal and Winners’s mask in separate 1995 shows. He last wrestled on the 2003 TripleMania show.
Over the history of TripleMania, 9 men have lost their masks:
Mascara Ano 2000, to Perro Aguayo at TM1
Angel Mortal, to Super Calo at TM3 Part A (Orizaba)
Payasito Rojo, loser of a mini cage match at TM3 Part A (Orizaba)

La Calaca, loser of a cage match at TMV Part B (Toreo)
Maniaco, loser of a cage match at TMX Part B (Madero)
Muerte Cibernetico, TO La Parka Jr. at TMXIV (Toreo)
6) Alebrije, Elegido, Super Porky vs Alan Stone, Scorpio Jr., Zumbido
* Alebrije is 4-2
* Elegido and Porky are making their TripleMania debuts. Brazo de Plata debuted in AAA in a non-wrestling capacity last year.
* Alan Stone and Zumdido debuted in a loss last year.
* Scorpio Jr. is 1-2 at TripleMania. Before last year, Scorpio had last appeared in 1995.
7) ?, La Parka Jr., Latin Lover, Zorro vs ?, Head Hunter I, Ron Killings, Sabu
* La Parka Jr. is 6-0 at TripleMania, having picked up Muerte’s mask and Cibernetico’s hair along the way.
* Latin Lover is 11-4. He’s had more matches than TripleManias, thanks to years iwth multiple shows.
* Zorro is 3-2, with both his losses coming in title matches.
* Head Hunter I is 0-1, previously teaming with his brother.
* Ron Killings and Sabu are making their TripleMania debuts
8) Charly Manson, Chessman, Cibernetico vs Kenzo Suzuki, Mesias, X-Pac [cage, hair]
