El Patron makes his first appearance of the year on AAA TV and he’s not alone. It seemed inevitable a US wrestler from Lucha Underground would end up showing here, but I would’ve guessed Prince Puma. I guess Cage needs less of an explanation. This is actually not Brian Cage’s first appearance in Mexico; he worked for Todo x el Todo in 2013 as a La Migra member. AAA’s slightly different. Alberto & Cage seem matched up here, since Fenix/Fantasma and Myzteziz/Pentagon are the other rivalries.
The Rey de Reyes bracket now looks like this
Let’s discount Murder Clown because he’s Murder Clown (and he may have Electroshock/Pirata issues and even Hell Brothers issues.) Bengala seems to be headed to a tag title match so he’s probably not making the final. That leaves Texano and Machine Rocker and that sure looks like a Texano win – except maybe Texano’s in this big tag match main event which hasn’t even been hinted on TV but looks implied by the way things have been booked? Machine Rocker in the final as a rudo to work with Aerostar makes some level of sense. At the same time, there’s probably reasons why Machine Rocker hasn’t been on TV since September (!) and those reasons probably weren’t “we’re going to have him make a surprise run in Rey de Reyes next year!” Plus, this is kind of assuming Zorro’s winning the next block – if Psycho Clown does, than Texano seems almost certain to face his old rival. All I’m saying is there’s a chance, Machine Rocker fans. And at least he is back on TV.
Parka versus Cibernetico continues in the semimain. Angelico & Jack Evans were attacked by the rudos in Toluca so get a chance for revenge here.
Rest of the card is random. Pirata & Lider are both rudos but on different tracks and neither of them seem to involve Drago, who hasn’t been involved in much here. There’s a mystery partner thrown into as well, which probably means something is up but it’s not clear what. Maybe Drago gets a new partner to go after Lider and the tag titles (and Electroshock & Pirata gets thrown in too to make it a four way? I dunno.)
The other 2v2 match is even more random, with four guys who haven’t had much meaningful interaction with each other. It should be good and maybe something will start up with Daga since he’s been pretty frequently on TV this month.
There’s an AULL undercarder named Pegasus (well, sometimes – his name has been spelled 4 different ways.) The Arena Lopez Mateos trainees are anonymous for a big arena that’s so close to Mexico City, usually getting bumped off the card when there’s a major show that’s actually taped. They’ve got a better shot of turning up on IWRG TV for a school vs school cibernetico than anyone taking a handheld of their shows. That Pegasus has been wrestling around the DF area since 2012 and I have no links to videos with him it. The name and position fits with him, though I can’t be sure. There must’ve been one very exciting tryout session recently for all these random names to start filtering in the opening matches.
The last week of this taping will air one day before Rey de Reyes. AAA could go right into that show if they’d like. This weekend’s AAA TV will probably make that clear – if there’s no more tapings announced, that’s the plan. Still, this tournament is also far enough away from the show that AAA might be able to hold off announcing the full Rey de Reyes card until after it takes place.
