Atomic Boy/Angel Mortal

recap

Argenis, Atomic Boy, Relampago vs Ángel Mortal, Gran Apache, Tito Santana: Good match; Atomic Boy and Argenis are adding different ideas to their repertoire, which is great if they’re going to be on TV more than once every months. Relampago remains Relampago, but he was better than last time out. Apache and Tito were in the right places at the right time; Angel Mortal looked a little bit slow but it could’ve been the other guys going too fast.

 

Dinastia

Dinastía, Mascarita Divina, Octagoncito vs Mini Chessman, Mini Histeria, Mini Psicosis: Really good minis match. Felt short than it actually was, but they just had a lot they wanted to get thru. Dinastia looked impressive and unique in his debut, just what you wanted. The rudos seemed better than they have in the past; they could still use one more good one, but they had tricky técnico offense to keep up with and managed it well here.

 

giant splash

El Elegido & Fenix vs Alan Stone & Dark Dragon: Fenix and Dark Dragon did their thing and Alan seemed to be trying. Elegido was less than usual. The match finish was one of those nonsensical evil guys doing evil things for no particular reason – if Konnan just wanted Alan out of the group, why even let him have the match? I don’t think we’re going to be seeing a lot of Alan Stone either way. I wonder where this leaves the mixed tag titles (or maybe we’re just not going to be see a lot of those either.)

 

just so someone sees it again

Cibernético, Daga, Electroshock vs Chessman, La Parka, Último Gladiador: if AAA was the kind of promotion that showed crazy things as much as CMLL shows that clip of Naito being clotheslined on his head, that would actually be a somewhat defensible finish. As it was, the crowd totally bought the brainbuster as a finish (and it will be, because no one besides Gladiador – and maybe Dark Dragon – will be silly enough to agree to something like a top rope Canadian Destroyer), and instead UG kicked out of that at zero to set up the crazy dangerous stop that they’ll never show again. You’re doing crazy moves only to impress yourself, that’s not the way it’s supposed to work. Chessman and UG did great work here. Electroshock was way into showing off all his moves. Cibernético and Parka is definitely an issue, but not a particularly hot one; changing each sides doesn’t totally take away from this being a decade long feud.

missed senton? weird double legdrop to the midsection?

Dr. Wagner Jr. & El Mesías vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Halloween: fifteen minute match with no finish, a great  use of my time. Actually, the técnicos were most assuredly about to win, and win easily considering where the Perros used to be. It is Halloween, and Halloween and Damian exist to take losses in matches like this, so it’s not really a big deal. I haven’t been high on Mesías vs Jarrett because Jarrett’s not been around, but it’s not like Mesías has been all that interesting either.

stunner

taped 2012-02-03 @ Arena Miguel Canto Solis, Cozumel, Quinta Roo

recap

match 1
match 2
match 3
match 4
match 5

Fabi Apache & Mascarita Dorada vs Mini Histeria & Sexy Star: good built to a Dark Dragon vs Mascarita Dorada match that I don’t believe is ever happening or even really planned. Sexi said she did not want to wrestle for these fans, and the woman kept true to her word! This was ominous start.

 

the show in one gif

Cibernético, Daga, Fenix vs Dark Dragon, Dizzy, La Parka: Another poor outing. Fenix looked more unready for this level in this match than he has since appearing. He blew both dives he tried and had plenty of other spots not go right or nearly go wrong. Daga’s debut did not look as spectacular as Rocco’s either, though he was much better than his partner. Cibernético looks liked a man with no working knees, which is actually normal. Dizzy, only here to make up the numbers, seemed more in mind to try and catch someone’s eye to make it on TV. That didn’t help the match any. The conditions may have played a part in this, but there needed to be some adjustment made to the slippery surfaces if that was the problem, and these guys just kept trying to do their matches. Better to do less spectacular stuff and actually pull it off than mess up anything. To top that off, we get the AAA classic “tecnicos win, immediately get killed to make sure the win didn’t mean anything.”

 

shake?

Extreme Tiger & Jack Evans vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Halloween: Match wasn’t itself anything special – though probably the best thing on this show – but they continue to get this story over well. Perro being befuddled about losing was amusing. Lots and lots of replays.

El Mesías & Zorro vs Héctor Garza & LA Park: They went twenty three minutes, put Garza thru table thing (sort of) and then made it all about Joaquin and Konnan and LA Park. This was not a good use of anyone’s time. It was not a really much of an interesting match up to that, a lot of killing time and trying not be killed in a ring that wasn’t working out well for anyone.

Fenix & Dragon

taped 2011-12-20 @ Plaza de Toros Chilpancingo, Guerrero & taped 2012-01-21 @ Estadio José Aguilar, Maya de Guanajuato, Guanajuato

file: match 1
match 2
match 3
match 4
recap

Argenis, Atomic Boy, Fenix vs Dark Dragon, Tigre Cota, Tito Santana: Very strong opening match, strong from the get go. Atomic Boy’s new (?) patriotic colors outfit looks good. It is a bit odd for Fenix to go from semimain event of the year end show to the opener on the next show, but I guess they thought it was odd he was in the semimian event to begin with.

Extreme Tiger, cut from the Televisa version

Dr. Wagner Jr. & Extreme Tiger vs LA Park & Octagón: The national version makes this seem more strictly Park/Wagner than it actually is – there’s a good sequence between Santana & Tiger (and two Tiger dives) that’s only in the regional version. It’s much better than way. Both versions have the same lack of an actual finish, which is a bit annoying. Octagon is making more of an effort, but this bit of other people running in and wrestling half the match for him with no attempt at explanation is a still annoying. Also, still don’t want to see this Octagon/Joaquin match. I totally missed that Toscano wasn’t on this taping at all – did he already screw something up at this point?

Perro wins

Cibernético, Extreme Tiger, Joe Lider vs Chessman, La Parka, Nicho el Millionario: Two straight finishes of “El Consejo runs in, hits everyone” is not really the way to go thru life. Tiger didn’t repeat a lot between matches, but I’m not sure it helped him to be in both matches (and he seemed in a lot of pain.) By the standard of who was involved, match was good. Crowd still loves Cibernético.

El Mesías & Jack Evans vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Héctor Garza: This was probably longer than it needed to be, but it was fine. Perro is not the old Perro, but he not the 2009-10 Perro either, he’s an acceptable rudo. Garza is the same guy he was as a rudo over in CMLL. There was only a couple moments where it seemed like Jack was about to win, but then it wasn’t as match with many real near falls to begin with. It seemed like Perro proved his point, and not as much that this was something that’d keep going.

AAA Guerra de Titanes: 2011-12-16

taped 2011-12-16 @ Estadio Hermanos Serdán de Puebla, Puebla

files:
match 3 (partial) match 4 match 5 match 6 match 7 match 8 match 9

recap

I thought this was not as good as expecting. There were matches worked in styles I didn’t like, and at least one of those were bad by any measure. Wagner vs Park was not a particuarlly good or memorable match, and this show really could’ve used one.
