2009 AAA TV Chart
Projected Air Date (#905) – assuming VdE airs over 2 weeks
Main event is a bit confusing at first glance and needs a better explanation. It’s a six man cage match. The first wrestler out is #1 contender to the AAA Cruiserweight Championship. The last man remaining loses his spot in AAA.
Now, unless something very strange happens at Verano de Escandalo, the Cruiserweight champion at the time of this match will be in this match – all five guys are there. Not only is it weird for the champ to be in a match for the title, but there’s the theoretical possibility of the champion losing the match and being out of the company. It’s not going to happen, but it’s still weird.
Working thru the names:
- Sugi: supposed to be here for a year
- Jack Evans: loved by all in AAA
- Extreme Tiger: loved by all who book matches in AAA
- Alex Koslov: just turned rudo, a lot of build up on him
- Teddy Hart: Nikki is just on the way back, and AAA
- Rocky Romero: hmmm
FWIW, everyone but Sugi is listed on AAA lineups in September. They even put a lineup for October where Jack & Rocky vs Alex & Scoria, plus Teddy in the main event. Of course, it also has Escorpion Negro in a match, and he left on Monday, so don’t take advance lineups as gospel.
It’s always possible any one of the foreigners has just had enough of being a foreigner and wants to go home, so there’s no sure thing. Also, AAA wouldn’t be the first promotion to pretend Rocky Romero doesn’t exist and bring in a remarkable similar guy under a mask. I think Rocky’s the (un)favorite, but it’s not cut and dry thing.
Elsewise, it’s weird to see Mesias vs Cibernetico as a third match, but not weird to see it listed a revenge match. You can read into those two facing off and Wagner being in his own match in enough different ways to see any of the three guys coming out of Verano as champion.
Second match reminds us Fabi/Aero vs Sexi/Billy won’t be coming to a complete end this Friday, because it can never come to a complete end. It’ll be about mocking whoever lost.
Estrellita could make her return to TV after a short nine month break, unless they only air four matches. Or no matches, but then we’ve got bigger problems.
