Aerostar thought his dives weren’t tricky enough so

Recapped: 11/21/2015

What happened: Pentagon attacked Jack and challenged for a title rematch. Australian Suicide attacked Daga, in retaliation for an attack prior to the show.

This is the start of a lot of backstage turmoil spilling out into world, though none of it is directly referenced on screen. Elsewhere, Mistico I returned to Arena Mexico the same night, and this is the first show with him sort of not around. This also turns out to be Alberto’s last night, as he returns to WWE before his next scheduled TV appearance. Mundo’s interview –  naming Rey and the title but not naming Alberto – is the only sign that something’s changed. (It looks like something taped at a later show and added back into this one, and it also suggests the one on one match was a possible plan for a while, even though a tournament would be brought up elsewhere.) 

Argos is also making his last appearance, seemingly quitting AAA twice in route to ending up in Elite with his brother. (Argenis would end up staying.) This also might be the end of Maravilla’s two match run; she turned up in DTU wrestling Marcela soon after and hasn’t been on AAA shows since.

What was good: The entire show was generally an easy watch, with the second, third and fifth matches being the best

Where can I watch it: It’s on my YouTube channel, and it’s also now AAA’s YouTube channel. 

Previously: Taya kept her women’s title, Jack & Angelico got the tag titles back, Fenix and Mesias faced off, Taurus won Copa Antonio Pena, Garza debuted, and Alberto kept his title. (more…)

that’s a lot of flower petals

Recapped: 10/24/2015

What happened: Konnan passed leadership of La Sociedad to Fantasma. Cage attacked Drago (and other people) for no real reason, was attacked by Drago to cost him the main event. Lady Shani debuted and got off to an 0-1 start.

What was good: The Machine Rocker trios is great! The rest is stuff you’re not going to think about twice.

Where can I watch it: It’s up on the YouTube channel. (more…)

Fexnix Brillo Tornillo

Recapped: 10/03/2015

What happened: Jack beat Joe Lider and challenged for the tag titles. Mesias used a ref distraction to beat Parka. 

What was good: nothing much. This felt like a televised house show with people taking it easy.

Where can I watch it: It’s on AAA’s channel and mine. I’m trying to stick with AAA’s version because it seems like they have a few vignettes which aren’t being shown on the national version. There were very brief segments in between each match on the TripleMania show, and this one had a skit that wasn’t on the Televisa version

Machine lariat!

Recapped: 09/13/2015

What happened: Daga & Steve Pain cost Angelico & Jack a win, but they sort of also cost Lider & Pentagon the win and there’s some tension inside Perros del Mal. Myzteziz and Rey Mysterio started feuding in main events and I’m sure that’ll end up well. There’s a mystery person stalking La Secta, an angle I had completely forgotten existed when I finally put up this recap.

What was good: Everything! The opener was great (and a surprising Australian Suicide focused match), and the three way tag and the main event were good as well.

Where can I watch it: It’s up on AAA’s YouTube channel.

Brillo Plancha

Recapped: 09/06/2015

What happened that mattered? Psycho Clown won the Latin American championship from Chessman. Konnan put Daga, Steve Pain and Hijo del Pirata together as a trio (again?)

What was good? Everything! Three matches, all good. The Aerostar/Bengala/Argenis vs Daga/Pirata/Pain match was as great a trios match as AAA’s had all year.

How can I watch? It’s on my channel and on AAA’s as Tehucan Part 1. (more…)

how was this ever going to work?

Recapped: 09/05/2015

What happened? Myzteziz turned heel, lost 100% clean, turned heel again, and then turned down the other heels but hung out with them. It was even more confusing than it reads (but TV did clean it up a bit.) Alberto got revenge on Cage, shaving his head and burying him under a flag. Blue Demon got a trophy for being Blue Demon.

What was good? The tag match was not, nope. Alberto/Cage gets overwhelmed by it being a big AAA match.

Where can I watch? The pirated version of this show are easy to find on YouTube, but the TV version doesn’t have the production issues; you want the version on AAA’s channel.

monkey bars SSP?

What happened? Villano IV cheated to beat Psycho Clown in Villano III’s final matches. The Hell Brothers kept the trios match in a three way cage match.

What was good? My ability to give a dry recap of the events in the previous paragraph without mocking how bad much of it was. I guess this was the lesser half of the show, but it’s tough to pick a good half.

Where can I watch? It’s all around YouTube, including AAA’s channel.

don’t yell at Flamita

Recapped: 08/19/2015

What happened? This was a lame duck show before TripleMania, but it did feature the debut (under a new name) of Fireball. It’ll still be a while before we figure out if this is a footnote or a meaningful.

What was good? That Fireball match was great and worth watching. Not just because of the guy normally known as Flamita either: if we ever get a full year of Steve Pain, he’d probably get some awards. The rest of the show was nothing special.

Where can I watch? It’s in my playlist, and it’s now up on AAA’s channel (as Puebla Parte 2).

Averno gives Aero a push

Recapped: 08/16/2015

What happened that mattered? Cage challenged Alberto to a hair match and Alberto accepted. Hell Brothers are still feuding with Myzteziz. Holocuasto are still feuding with Psycho Circus. A month out, it’s arguable if the last two really mattered. They aired the tease of Myzteziz turning rudo from the press conference and mentioned Villano III’s retirement

Should I go back and watch anything? Maybe the opener, but I never saw it complete. The other matches are a long trios ending with a DQ and another silly Alberto/Cage match, both skippable

Where can I see it? This one’s now up on AAA’s YouTube channel, including the missing chunk of the opener.  (more…)
