winner faces Aerostar (and Daga?) at some other time.
5) Psycho Clown vs Texano © [AAA HEAVY]
Texano’s 11 defense, though first on TV since October (and third straight against Psycho Clown.)
6) Cibernético, La Parka, Mistico vs Averno, Chessman, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo


AAA says this card is “not official”. Which is completely accurate, they haven’t officially released this card yet.

Original Post: 

Air Date: 06/14 and 06/21? Sure, sounds good.

Poster is found here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=305477462949080 – note user complains about too many darn tournaments on these big AAA shows. AAA hasn’t confirmed this lineup yet and may not be able to until after Celaya if they’re holding Mistico’s name until then.

Let’s start there: they’re actually going to just call him Mistico! He’s even pictured with his Mistico mask on the poster. That’s obviously the strongest name to use him under. AAA seems to have no fear about using CMLL owned names. No idea why, but it’s happening.

That match is going to be a big deal. The Psycho/Texano match is what they’ve been build towards for the last 7 months and really needs to be a title change at this point or it’s going to be very tough to care about AAA’s long builds again.

What is going on with Daga? I am so confused. That eight way match should be really good, but I’m not sure why it’s actually occurring. Maybe this will be explained on TV next week.

The bottom half of the card is more normal TV stuff. This is like most non-TripleMania AAA big events, where one or two storylines get to a turning point and the rest of the show is a normal show. They did remember Aerostar and Super Fly are feuding – this is the first time they’ve faced each other after breaking up five months ago.

No women’s title match, so whatever the contenders match is setting up in Celaya won’t be for a while. Maybe either that or the cruiserweight title will be decided in Puebla – the next show, on 06/13.

CMLL (SUN) 05/25 Arena Coliseo [CMLL, LuchaWorldTerra]
1) Akuma & Cholo b Bengala & Molotov Bengala & Molotov vs Akuma & Cholo, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Rudos took 1/3.
2) Bam Bam, Eléctrico, Stukita b Demus 3:16, Mercurio, Pequeño Universo 2000 Bam Bam, Electrico, Stukita vs Demus 3 on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)

Skandalo’s DF return and Gallo’s first DF appearance in a couple years. Arkangel and Gallo feuded a bit. Rudos took 2/3.
4) Dragón Rojo Jr., Ephesto, Mephisto b Blue Panther, Fuego, Sagrado Blue Panther, Fuego, Sagrado vs Dragon Rojo Jr., Ephesto, Mephisto, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Rudos took 2/3, Mephisto defeating Panther.
5) Niebla Roja, Pierroth, Shocker b La Máscara, Marco Corleone, Titán La Mascara, Marco Corleone, Titan vs Niebla Roja, Pierroth, Shocker, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Rudos took 1/3, Niebla Roja beating Titan with his double chickenwing faceslam both times. Roja demanded a title match and took Titan’s mask post match. Better match than expected.
6) Rush b Volador Jr. Volador Jr. vs Rush, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Rush jumped Volador with help from a Volador distraction and threatened a martinete, but Tirantes stopped it. Rush was eventually DQed for stomping Volador in the corner too long. Rush won the second fall clean with a dropkick in the corner. Rush bumped referee Tirantes out of the ring after a Volador backcracker in the third. Volador got the visual pin, then took a backcracker from La Mascara. Rush added a senton and covered as Tirantes climbed back in to count three. Volador challenged for hair match, but Rush refused.

Better than expected show with the fifth match succeeding by working the match differently. La Mascara couldn’t refuse to get along with his partners because they were too busy brawling elsewhere. Roja and Titan played off each other well. I have pretty high expectations for that match.

Main event was not the all out Volador/Rush match it could’ve been – they’re still in the process of repeating the new setup for a month in hopes everyone gets it.

05/24 AAA TV Results (Tuxtla Gutiérrez)


AAA TV (SAT) 05/24/2014 Explanada del Parque Bicentenario, Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas [AAA]
1) Ludxor, Niño Hamburguesa, Venum b Carta Brava Jr., El Apache, Fresero Jr.
Hamburguesa splash on Fresero.
2) Machine Rocker, Mamba, Mini Abismo Negro, Taya Valkyrie b El Elegido, Faby Apache, Mascarita Sagrada, Pimpinela Escarlata
Mamba beat Mascarita Sagrada with a powerbomb.
3) Aerostar b Ricky MarvinAxelPsicosisSteve PainEterno [AAA CRUISER, #1 Contenders]
Listed originally as Daga defending the title, but Daga did not appear for reasons not yet explained – he may have been stripped of the title. Psicosis replaced him, while Ricky Marvin replaced Bengala. Aerostar beat Steve Pain for the win (may have been one pin to a finish) and was said to be the first finalist in a some sort of tournament for a title match.
4) Hijo del Fantasma, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Texano Jr. b Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown
Billed as a title match, but apparently was non-title after all. Fantasma beat Monster Clown won and Texano celebrated with Psycho’s mask after the match.
5) Averno, Black Warrior, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo b Bengala, Fénix, La Parka
Averno was the mystery rudo, with Bengala as the mystery tecnico. Averno beat Bengala with the Devil’s Wings for the win, but the lights went out and Mystery Man In White faced off with him to end the show. The Mystery Man appeared in a Mistico mask, then took it off to reveal an all white mask with gold eye covering.

Air Date: 05/31. If the recent pattern holds, the top 3 will air on Televisa and the first 2 will air on UTDN on 06/05.

This is a plans change edition of AAA TV! They went from two title matches to none with no particular explanation.

Tercera description is described like it’s a tournament for a vacant championship, but there’s no mention of Daga forfeiting the title – or Daga at all. Daga mentioned on Tercera Caida this past week about how he prefers wrestling on the indies than AAA because of the freedom, but it’d still be surprising for him to leave AAA, especially without losing a title. Maybe there’s an injury we haven’t been told about?

Aerostar won? Aerostar won! It just goes to prove that harassing people on Twitter talent wins out in the end. Whatever’s going on, it was was very clear this was the first part of a tournament and so there’s got to be another part of it – likely an added match in Celaya. Pentagon Jr., Fenix, Jack Evans, Suicide, Angelico, Drago, Venum, Ludxor, and Super Fly could all figure in. Heck, Bengala missed the first part, maybe he can come back in the second part.

Trios title change is probably more just realizing they rather do the trios title match in Celaya instead and not bothering to let people know they had changed this card.


Bengala/Marvin worked twice (unless they stuck someone else in the suit, which is not impossible) because they’re holding Sin Cara out of the ring probably all the way until Verano de Escandalo. I would be surprised if he actually fights in Celaya but maybe they announce the name. AAA’s being careful to give a little bit more of the new identity each appearance – this time was his new mask – and the name is the big one left.

And it’s possible that name may end up being Mistico by the time AAA’s done. AAA actually posted that on Twitter as the name, then quickly deleted it. The assumption last night was the problem was with using that name, but it might have actually just been with using that name too soon.

This was another free show, but this was also a gigantic crowd. The arena looks like a bandshell, with plenty of ringside seating and thousand and thousands of park seating stretching back from the arena to a near by monument. I’m not sure how much the people could see the show from the way back, but it’s going to look massive on television. It appears to be the second biggest crowd of the year so far to Rey de Reyes and may end up the biggest non-major show attendance of the year.


Sombra & Rush destroy Shocker, AAA in Tuxtla Guiterrez

Dragon Lee & Cachorro

CMLL (FRI) 05/23/2014 Arena México [CMLL, TerraYahoo! Deportes]
1) Black Panther & Pegasso b Canelo Casas & El Rebelde Black Panther & Pegasso vs Canelo Casas & El Rebelde, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Tecnicos took 2/3.
2) Dark Angel, Marcela, Princesa Sugheit DQ Dalys, Princesa Blanca, Zeuxis Dark Angel, Marcela, Princesa Sugheit vs Dalys, Princesa Blanca, Zeuxis, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Tecnicas took 2/3, the last when Sugheit tossed her match to Blanca to draw the DQ.
3) Blue Panther, Diamante Azul, Valiente vs Felino, Rey Bucanero, Vangellys Blue Panther, Diamante Azul, Valiente vs Felino, Rey Bucanero, Vangellys, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
moved to the tercera. Tecnicos took 1/3 in a disappointing match.
4) Cachorro, Hechicero, Virus b Cavernario, Dragon Lee, Negro Casas  Cavernario, Dragon Lee, Negro Casas vs Cachorro, Hechicero, Virus, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Final four in the En Busca de Un Idolo tournament and the trainees. Team Virus took falls 1/3, the last when Hechicero beat Dragon Lee while using the ropes. Great match.
5) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Titán b Mr. Águila, Rey Escorpión, Ripper
Tecnicos took 2/3, Maximo defeating Escorpion in the third.
6) Atlantis, Shocker, Volador Jr. DQ La Sombra, Rush, Último Guerrero [Relevos Increíbles]
Shocker replaced Niebla on Monday. Team UG took fall one with a Pulpo Guerrero on Atlantis, Atlantis tied up with an Atlantida on Guerrero, and Rush & Sombra were DQed for excessive violence on Shocker in the third.

En Busca de un Idolo match was the best on the Terra show by far. The official name for the Rush, Sombra and La Mascara  trio is being billed as Los Indeseables.

AAA finishes it’s second Chiapas show in eight days tonight in Tuxtla. There’s two title matches tonight; Daga puts up his cruierweight championship in the usual midcard mutliman title match against Bengala, Aerostar, Axel, Eterno and Steve Pain, while Psycho Circus defend the trios titles against El Consejo in their never ending feud. I think it’s likely at least one title changes hand tonight. The trios is more likely, but it wouldn’t be out of the question for both to change hands. The main event is another in the series of mystery luchador specials, with Perro Aguayo, Black Warrior and probably Averno teaming up against Fenix, La Parka and possibly Sin Cara. The show is listed as starting at 8:30.

Verano de Escandalo tickets went on sale yesterday, running from 60 up to 450 Mexican pesos ($4.66 to $35). That’s a little bit lower than usual. No VIP package this time. The on sale announcement mentions Psycho Clown versus Texano Jr. and nothing else – because nothing else is official yet, though they’ve been teasing Demon/Chessman and Sin Cara locally.

AAA announced the top 3 from last Saturday’s taping in Tapachula will air this afternoon on Televisa. The other two matches will air on the UTDN show on Thursday, and probably will be on internet sooner than that.

La Magnifica talks wanting to win the #1 contenders match in Celaya. It’s the usual one-talking-point AAA article, with the exception of something that’s either an innocent typo or an accidental tease. Magnficia (or whoever’s putting words in her mouth) twice mentions how she’s going to defeat the other seven women, but there’s only six other women listed in that match. That’s almost nothing in itself, but the 06/17 AAA spot show in Arena Aficion lists a luchadora sorpresa. Is someone new about to show up here?

Amapola and La Comandante made it to Japan. Amapola’s now scheduled to defend the CMLL-REINA International Championship twice. She’s facing Maki Narumiya on 05/25, then Shuri on 05/29 if she keeps the belt.

R de Rudo looks at images of impact.


CMLL (FRI) 05/30/2014 Arena México
1) Hombre Bala Jr. & Súper Halcón Jr. vs Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Fuego, Rey Cometa, Sagrado vs Boby Zavala, Kamaitachi, Sangre Azteca
3) Máximo, Stuka Jr., Super Porky vs Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Vangellys
4) Dragon Lee vs Cachorro [En Busca de un Idolo]
5) Cavernario vs Hechicero [En Busca de un Idolo]
6) Atlantis, Titán, Valiente vs Ephesto, Gran Guerrero, Mephisto
7) La Máscara, La Sombra, Rush vs Negro Casas, Shocker, Volador Jr. [Relevos Increíbles]

Main event is listed as a relevos incredible, but it’s really just the Undesirables versus the three guys who hate them the most (and aren’t under suspension.)  Semimain is a bit weaker than usual; more conventional CMLL programming would have those three down in the tercera and the tercera three up in the semimain. Maybe there’s a reason for that.

Both en Busca de un Idolo matches look good, but there shouldn’t be a match match this round. First two matches should be good if toned down because of their position and lack of time.

CMLL preview, DTU in Arena Aficion

DTU (TUE) 05/20/2014 Arena Aficion [La Copa]
6) Flamita © b Shane Strickland, Drastik Boy, Kaleth [DG BRAVE GATE]
2nd defense for Flamita.
7) Aero Boy & Violento Jack b Crazy Boy & Super Crazy
Violento Jack beat Crazy Boy and threatened to take over DTU from him.
8) Cíclope, Miedo Extremo, Paranoiko b Ángel o Demonio, Demente Extreme, Ovett and Carta Brava Jr. (IWL), Cerebro Negro, Fantasma de la Ópera
Ciclope beat Demente Extreme.

Tonight’s CMLL main event is another Relevos Increíbles, with tecnicos Atlantis & Volador teaming with nominal rudo Shocker against rudo Ultimo Guerrero and disagreeable people La Sombra & Rush. (This has nothing to do with anything, but something here wasn’t planned much in advance, since Shocker’s basically back to working as a tecnico about two months later.)  Semimain continues the Escorpion/Maximo issue. The highlight match is the En Busca de un Idolo trios match, with Negro Casas, Dragon Lee and Cavernario facing off Virus, Hechicero and Cachorro in what should be a wild match. Not sure if that’ll end up be the Terra main event or if they’ll go back to the previous rule of airing the top four matches, but that match alone is worth checking out the stream.

3) Sexy Star vs La Jarochita, Taya Valkyrie, La Magnifica, Mary Apache, Cinthia Moreno, Sexy Lady [Reina De Reinas, #1 Contenders]

4) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown © vs Hijo del Fantasma, Silver King, Texano Jr. [AAA TRIOS]
Rematch from Tuxtla – either the Psycho Circus 8th defense (and 6th versus Consejo) or the Consejo’s first defense.
5) ?, Cibernético, La Parka vs ??, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Parka Negra

Air Date: 06/07.

No one’s getting booked in more main events than Luchador Sorpresa. I’d assume it’s Sin Cara and Averno, but there doesn’t really seem to be a reason to keep listing Avenro as Luchador Sorpresa after he’s already debuted. Maybe a communication error? Maybe even more people? Maybe they’re just not sure. Maybe I’m not sure!

Even as crazy repetitive as AAA can be – the opener is almost the same match for three straight tapings running – I can’t believe AAA is running the same trios title match on consecutive tapings for the Psycho Circus to win both. There’s a title change coming, maybe even the titles going back and forth.

Not sure if the Reina de Reinas contender match is intended for Verano de Escandalo. That card is probably going to be announced before this show happens, which may give away the result if that’s the plan. It’s probably Taya or Sexy Star getting the shot.

Next show after this is Verano de Escandalo on 06/07. Is Psycho Clown versus Texano Jr. the only announced match for that show so far? No sign of Blue Demon (or Chessman) on this show or Tuxtla, so no idea if that is still meant to be happeing. All the usual names should be on the card.
