Noa Noa Driver

Recapped: 12/03/2016

What happened: Pagano beat Psycho Clown in his home town. Perros beat the Traidor Clowns, only for the Traidor Clowns to beat up them and security post match.

What was good: Nothing. Maybe the main event was the best match of the night, but that was an extended handicap match. Getting thru this show has been a chore for a while now and maybe the good thing is next week is the final episode of the year.

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

What happened: OGT won the titles by DQ. Tirantes was helping them all match, but actually fairly ruled the DQ since the Apaches got involved and attacked him. (This might have been a Zorro plan, but everything Zorro says confuses me.) Psycho Clown is now losing to the likes of Murder Clown.

What was good: Nothing. This show is in a dry spell for matches and doesn’t seem to be getting better any time soon.

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

Recapped: 11/12/2016

What happened: Pentagon Jr. beat Johnny Mundo and challenged to a singles match. The Piratas continue to have problems.

What was good: I liked the main event in spite of the usual things I didn’t like. There were parts of the opener I liked but it struggled early.

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

What happened: The OGT continue to dominate the show: they cost the Apaches another match again, they cheated to beat the Xinetez again (with some help from Tirantes.) Psycho Clown and Dr. Wagner had a match, but didn’t have a finish.

What was good: Nothing. The matches are clearly building up the big feuds, but the matches themselves aren’t any good.

Where can I watch it: It’s on AAA’s channel, even if I haven’t gotten around to linking to it yet. (more…)

Recapped: 11/14/2016

What happened: Wagner/Psycho set up a singles match (for next week). Fantasma kept his cruiserwieght title. Mascara de Bronce debuted, and lost. Super Fly is set on ending Aerostar. A mystery person has now trapped the Apaches twice.

What was good: Nothing really? The title match and the opener worked less than you’d expect. The main event was actually better, but the expectations were pretty lose there.

Where can I watch it: It’s no AAA’s channel in much better quality than on mine. (more…)

Angelico barely escapes

Recapped: 11/12/2016

What happened: Pagano got a rematch win over Psycho Clown, though it took a lot of Tirantes helping. Nothing much else – this wasn’t really an angle show, but more of a loaded house show for the foreign audience. (Theoretically, this is the newest “maybe last ever Rey Mysterio appearance in AAA!” but who knows.)

At least on SamuraiTV, this seems a bit like a vehicle to promote Lucha Underground airing on the station – it was brought up even by NOAH guys.

What was good: Nothing jumped out as must see but the show overall was easily more enjoyable than Heroes Inmortales. The Angelico/Fantasma vs Hidaka/Tanaka match was the best match on the show to me, with the three way and main event watchable too. Nothing was bad, though the times indicated the first few matches were decently edited (probably as much for time as spots.)

Where can I watch it: It’s in the RealHero archive. AAA’s teased they may show it complete on their own show at some point – they probably should show 2/4/5/6. (more…)

Recapped: 11/10/2016

What happened: New alliances were formed: the Team Trump Invaders & the Traidors (Pagano, Wagner, Monster, Murder) are on one side, with various AAA tecnicos and rudos on the other side. Pentagon allied the Perros del Mal with the AAA side at the end of the show. Also, Mini Psycho Clown beat Dinastia and signaled for a title match.

What was good: I liked the minis match for how long it lasted. I didn’t think much of the last match but it felt like an effective angle.

Where can I watch it: It’s on AAA’s channel, much better than mine. (more…)

What happened: OGT beat the Xinetez and beat up the Apaches.

What was good: I liked the middle trios match. It was a fun AAA trios match uncomplicated by being AAA storylines. They overpowered the other two matches.

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

Recapped: 10/31/2016

What happened: Suicide lost his mask. Pimpinela won Copa Antonio Pena. Johnny Mundo is still champ.

What was good: I didn’t like anything, and this generally felt like a time sink. What was good was this wasn’t an iPPV, because I think we would’ve been frustrated/disappointed with the show had we paid for it (even it aired without issue!)

Where can I watch it: It’s on AAA’s channel, including the match which did not air. (more…)

business as usual for Aerostar

Recapped: 10/27/2016

What happened: Monster Clown & Murder Clown betrayed Psycho Clown, who was figuratively and literally badly burned. Faby Apache got locked in a room (which turned out not to be so locked.) Aerostar & Super Fly kept the tag titles.

What was good: I liked the ladder match and had not a lot of use for the rest. I realized AAA main events are going to mostly be Psycho Clown getting beat, making a brief comeback, and then getting screwed for the next year straight (after happening for most of the last six months), and it is good that I realized that but not good for wrestling action.
