Aerostar

Recapped: 2017-02-21

What happened: Psycho Clown got an actual pin on Dr. Wagner. (He was still beat up to end the show.) Super Fly pinned Aerostar. Dave the Clown got a profile piece and Mesias and Pagano argued a bit. Chessman cost Faby Apache a match.

What was good: I liked the second match, though it could’ve used more time. Nothing was horrible.

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

Previously: “La Parka, Angelico and Australian Suicide beat Cuervo and Scoria!” And no one else, no one else at all was in that match! Zorro’s back slips through in the highlights sometimes, but he’s now a non-person. Averno’s burn of Joe Lider is left in, so the Perros aren’t meant to be gone. (Nothing is shown of the opener, hope they’re not all gone!)

Mascara de Bronce soars thru space

Recapped: 02/14/2017

What happened: a Faby Apache cost OGT a match. The OGT strangely blamed this on Joe Lider. He and Kahn are the final two Perros del Mal. We found out the Mesias/Pagano feud stemmed from an attack on Dave the Clown and I will not get over this no matter how many times I type it. Dave the Clown!

This is Zorro’s final AAA match (at least for now) after 17 years with the promotion. Zorro knew he was leaving, though maybe not that this was his last match – he’s said he would’ve wanted to work his remaining dates if allowed – but no one else knows. There’s no reference to it during the commentary (which was done live, so they wouldn’t have noticed.) There’s also no attempt to down play or cut him out like the Rebelion guys, with the possible exception of the OGT/Apaches recap cutting out the Xinetez’ involvement.

What was good: The opener was fun. The main event is an interesting Angelico & Australian tag match sandwiched around a long La Parka comedy bit. The other match occurred.

Where can I watch it: It’s on AAA’s channel, and there’s handhelds around if you need all the AAA you can get.

Previously: Dr. Wagner & Psycho Clown agreed to a maks match, again. Aerostar & Super Fly less dramatically got to an apuesta match. Lady Shani won, challenged Taya for a title match, didn’t really get a yes or no but did get beat up. OGT beat the Apaches. (Zorro and the Xinetez’s interference is omitted from this video package.)

Mini Psycho and Bengala off the upper level

Recapped: 02/07/2017

What happened: Dr. Wagner beat Psycho Clown again. Pagano & Mesias had problems, at least according to the AAA recap. It didn’t come across during the match, though the announcers brought it up.

Lady Shani won again and asked for a title shot against Taya. She got speared by Mesias instead. That segment seemed to end up being more about putting Mesias in Brian Cage’s spot as Mundo’s friend than Taya/Shani by the end.

What was good: None of the matches. Bengala & Mini Psycho fell off high places, but that was done more impressively last week. Even fans of AAA main event style can find a better week of TV than the one they had here.

Australian Suicide

Recapped: 02/01/2017

What happened: Averno & Chessman got a cheap victory over the Apaches yet again. The slight difference this time it was the Xinetez who helped them, either turning back rudo or remaining rudo the entire time but having a mystery plan. Aerostar & Super Fly were the final two in a cage match and will meet at Rey de Reyes in a mask/hair match.

AAA did their best to edit Daga out from existence in the cage match.

There’s a tremendous amount of time spent on video packages to start the show and a replay the Psycho/Wagner press conference. If you’re not interested in all of that, you need to

What was good: Both matches were better than expected but neither was satisfying.

no cameraman is safe from Dinastia

Recapped: 01/25/2017

What happened: Hijo del Tirantes helped OGT again. Lady Shani pinned Dinastia, which I think means she’s owed a minis title match. (Maybe not, but it is her second win in a row.)

What was good: The first two matches were perfectly acceptable TV matches, no problem to watch even if they might not make a year end bit. The main event was the usual Hijo del Tirantes show and you already know how you feel about that by now.

Where can I watch it: It’s on AAA’s channel, but I hadn’t gotten to put those links in the database so you’re stuck with mine for this post (more…)

Recapped: 01/15/2016

What happened: Goya Kong returned, and later betrayed her brother Psycho Clown to side with the rudos. Aerostar & Drago kept the tag titles and united with Argenis to form a new unnamed group.

What was good: Nothing stuck out as something you should go out of your way to see, but nothing was truly terrible either. The opener was too short and the main event was too long, but it was a very normal AAA TV episode.

whatever

Recapped: 12/12/2016

What happened: Hijo del Tirantes cheated to help the OGT, which may set up a match with Faby versus Hijo del Tirantes. Mundo beat Garza with help with Taya (thus proving Chavana made no difference either way.) Pentagon still wants a match with Mundo. Nothing really was advanced.

What was good: Nothing. The second match would’ve been rated among the worst of the year if I hadn’t given up on caring by now. It’s the same heel ref stuff that seems to get over live in it’s ridiculous but is so tiring. None of the matches interested me in the least, even when people I often like. This Juarez show as one of the least entertaining of the year and a hard way to close that year off.

AAA started 2016 boasting about having the greatest collection of young talent since their glory days. This taping is definitely not reflective of any great talent base, and it feels like they’re very far away from being that AAA as the year ends. They couldn’t help but put together good matches a year ago, and now it’s a struggle to come up with the next match which might be great on this show.

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.

never change Averno

Recapped: 11/27/2016

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.

dives

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.
