5) Myzteziz & Psycho Clown vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Texano Jr.
air date: 01/31, and just 01/31. It’s a five match card. If the plan was to run as few possible tapings before the March relaunch, why wouldn’t they grab a few more people and knock out a second week of TV? ¯_(ツ)_/¯
AAA resumes TV tapings in the sleek modern Arena Naucalpan with some of what was going on last year, though you’d have to rewind a bit. The summer feuds of Perro/Myzteziz and Psycho/Texano are back, probably a little bit because Alberto is not around. The Hell Brothers face Drago, Jack and Parka, which picks up on a slightly more current issue: Parka wasn’t happy with Cibernetico becoming a rudo again and they teased a match that hasn’t quite happened until now – and won’t happen if Cibernetico forgets to show up again. (I bet Parka uses Thriller.)
Aerostar seems to be a favorite in this Rey de Reyes qualifying match, something I’m not sure I thought I’d ever type. Monsther Clown isn’t built for two matches and has the Hell Brothers to worry about. Hijo de Pirata may or may not have some story with Electroshock but definitely doesn’t have many wins in front of the AAA cameras. Super Fly could always get his win back, but I’m not sure they’re that interested in keeping Super Fly strong.
The Suicide/Pentagon feud also picks back up in the segunda. Myzteziz & Fenix seem like logical tag team title challengers, but you could also make a strong case for Suicide and [insert partner here] given all the Suicide/Pentagon history. Bengala is pretty good for an [insert partner here]. Multiway match is always more likely in AAA midcards, but this could set up a reason for them being part of the match. Opener should be a lot of fun, though it might be an internet only deal.
It’s a cool 47 days in between tapings, compared to 34 last winter break and 28 the year prior. It’s all about not having the middle of December taping, because this show is just a week later. After the recent talk about hiatus and changes, it’s business as usual. The only hint of something being up is the Rey de Reyes tournament starting on the first week back. Usually it’s one or so in, but then this is starting a week later so maybe it works out. Running a qualification tournament means, assuming they’re still doing four in the finals, AAA’s running one to three more tapings. Probably closer to three.
I’ll add the 2015 chart at some point, but the current TV schedule looks like
01/17: Guerra de Titanes part 1
01/24: Guerra de Titanes part 2
02/14: Toluca part 2?
Next taping is that show in Toluca, which might turn up quick.
