AAA# 647, taped 09/16/07, aired 10/20/07
Nothing’s quite says AAA like them missing the shot of Zorro turning rudo. I don’t blame the guy who zoomed in Konnan, I blame whoever was in the production truck choosing that shot of Konnan and didn’t have an instant replay of Zorro turning to make up for missing it. It’s not like anyone couldn’t figure out what happened by the aftermath, but you watch the show for the moment not the aftermath.
This was about a 180 (or maybe 175) from how they did the Billy Boy reveal on the same show. Maybe it’s just luck. That was all very well done. Even Aero Star being taken out works great, not just for goofiness, but because Fabi’s love for Alfa was sealed by him absolutely killing a man. They ARE rudos, still.
Mexican Powers match didn’t do too much! By their standards, and only because the post match angle was going to make up for it. Baby steps.
Ricky Marvin was good, but he wasn’t used in a spot where he meant anything. Maybe it’s because they didn’t know long he’d be around (or even if he’d be back), but if you’re bringing in guys in ways that don’t mean much, why are you bringing them in? With that said, they started off the X-Pac/Laredo Kid nicely and it’s a shame we don’t end up getting that feud. You can always hope they pick it up later, but X-Pac isn’t going to be here forever.
(internal debate – which do I choose
Cage match was a cage match. If Chessman had gotten killed by Mesias in the title match, as was the plan, would he have come out here and made the save the same way? (Yea, probably.)
