Arena Neza, 12/05/2015 

What happened: Nothing that you couldn’t have missed. Rey Mysterio was unable to wrestle in the main event, still got in a 619 before being helped to the back. That might be his last appearance in AAA; it definitely is for the time being. Blue Demon replaced Misterio and the tecnicos won a quick main event. The other two matches were unnoteworthy.

What was good: I liked the opener, but there’s nothing special on this show.

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

Suicide crushed

Recapped: 01/16/16

What happened: Los Perros del Mal beat everyone up, with Daga demanding an apuesta match with Australian Suicide. La Secta & Zorro rebounded to get their first win as a team.

The show also promoted the three Guerra de Titanes matches with a title involved. The matches on the show felt very disconnected to the card (and anything, really.)

What was good: The first two matches were fun and worth watching.

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

The episode features promos for Guerra de Titanes that lists the matches (though they appear to be too new for the voice over to actually name them.) Read More

AAA on Televisa: 2015 Holiday Season episodes

AAA on Televisa: 2015 Holiday Season episodes

What happened: Nothing! This was the usual holiday break, extended out an extra week. This recap is equally a place filler, just so I can remember they spent four full weeks on filler material this time.

Where can I watch it: All the shows are on AAA’s YouTube channel, but some of the matches are edited and you’re best off going back to the original show whenever possible

The December 19th AAA show was a tribute to Perro Aguayo Jr. Matches shown

  • 2012-02-23: Juventud Guerrero, Perro Aguayo Jr., Mascara Ano 2000, and Cibernetico in a Rey de Reyes qualifier

  • 2012-03-18: Jack Evans vs LA Park vs Hector Garza vs Jack Evans, Rey de Reyes final

  • 2013-06-16: Cibernetico vs Hijo del Perro Aguayo, hair vs hair

  • 2015-02-18: Hijo del Perro Aguayo vs Myzteziz

There were also holiday/Perro remembrance bumpers with Averno & Chessman, Electroshock (airing twice?), Dinasita (who’s attacked by the mini rudos), Mini Charly Manson, Mini Charly and Mini Abismo as a group (attacked by Dinastia and Octagoncito), and Villano IV. Most of the group, and a few others, join in for the closing Feliz Navidad

The December 26h AAA show was a look back at the Lucha World Cup. It appeared to be the same exact look back as had aired earlier this year, only with the addition of holiday messages from El Apache, Faby Apache and Electroshock. This meant the bit where Jeff Jarrett, Brian Cage, Averno and Johnny Mundo attacked Myzteziz, Rey Misterio and Alberto el Patron was back on AAA TV, after mysteriously being removed from their YouTube channel previously.

The January 1st AAA show was the first part of a look at the best of 2015. Matches shown:

  • 2015-06-14: Alas de Oro

  • 2015-06-14: Dark Cuervo & Dark Scoria vs Jack Evans & Angelico in a cage match

  • 2015-08-09: Rey Misterio vs Myzteziz

  • 2015-10-04: Copa Antonio Pena

Goya Kong, Mini Charly Manson, Mini Abismo and Mini Psycho Clown as a group, Nino Hamburguesa & Taurus handled the holiday promos. There were also video clips talking about Texano winning Rey de Reyes, Rey Mysterio returning to AAA, the Dream Team winning the first Lucha World Cup, AAA’s charity work, Tropicasas’s Hall of Fame induction.

The January 8th AAA show continued the Best of AAA theme

  • 2015-11-15: Dinastia (c) vs Mini Abismo Negro for the AAA Minis Championship

  • 2015-06-14: Alas de Oro – joined in progress

  • 2015-10-04: Garza Jr., Psycho Clown, Rey Mysterio Jr. vs Hijo del Fantasma, Myzteziz, Texano Jr.

  • 2015-10-04: Angélico & Jack Evans vs Joe Lider & Pentagón Jr. © and Daga & Steve Pain [AAA TAG]

  • 2015-10-04: El Patrón Alberto © vs Johnny Mundo for the AAA Heavyweight Championship

It seems notable AAA aired matches which featured both Alberto and Myzteziz; either they didn’t think they had enough Best of material without them, or they didn’t think showing guys who won’t be around any more was an issue. It’s hard not to notice not just those big names, but no one bigger than Electroshock or Taurus is shown in new material for this entire month. (It’s likely these were just the people who happened to be available on that day.)

Taurus, Chessman, Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Electroshock spoke in the inbetween segments. A short video on the lucha libre exhibit is also shown.

This show is the first to promote Guerra de Titanes by name, though not by announcing any matches. Previous shows had just mentioned a taping and a date, but not given it the name. The vignettes on this show were from a production room, instead of in front of a Christmas tree as previous ones. It seems like a way not date them as much, though Monster Clown is still wearing his Santa cap.

Recapped: 12/25/2015

What happened: Dinastia kept his minis title. Daga & Suicide continue to feud. The original Psicosis returned.

What was good: I enjoyed the minis match and the Daga/Pain vs Suicide/Speedball match.

Where can I watch it: It’s up on AAA’s channel and my own.

This is the final new AAA show of 2015. The next four weeks are repeat material. I’ll put up a post going thru all of them after they’ve over. Read More

Aereo de Juarez

Recapped: 12/23/2015

What happened: Pirata beat Electroshock via totally seen foul. Garza got a win. Zorro was sad about losing.

What was good: There were a few good moments, but no strong matches. This is a skipable show unless you want the novelty of seeing the Juarez guys on an AAA show.

Where can I watch it: It’s on my channel and AAA’s channel. Read More

epic

Recapped: 12/16-17/2015

What happened: This show took it’s toll on people. Johnny Mundo bloodied Rey Misterio in the main event, then beat him with a foul. An Australian Suicide and Daga post match brawl left Daga with a black eye.

What was good: Everything! You really want to see the middle trios match, but this was a real good show of wrestling matches.

Where can I watch it: It’s on my channel, but go watch AAA’s HD version instead. (This is Xalapa week 2.)

Fantasma has had enough of karate flips

Recapped: 12/05/2015

What happened: Pentagon dropped Jack on his head again, and vowed to shave it after taking the title. Mini Abismo beat Dinastia and challenged for a title match (that he was already getting, but maybe he wanted to make sure.)

What was good: Everything was good. Nothing was super, but the main even was better than I thought it would be.

Where can I watch it: It’s on my channel and on AAA’s channel (though I seem to have messed up the links somehow.)

Aerostar springboard reverse frog splash?

Recapped: 12/01/2015

What happened: Dr. Wagner Jr. returned, helped Rey win the main event tag match, then turned on him post match to everyone’s confusion. Wagner appears to be taking over Myzteziz’s spot as the rudo loner, but it might be months before we see him again.

Daga and Australian Suicide continue to feud, though Suicide got the trios win this week. Electroshock started on the tecnico side, is still getting attacked by Hijo del Pirata for no apparent reason.

What was good: I liked the opener a lot. You can stop watching at that point.

Where can I watch it: It’s on my channel, and now up on AAA’s channel. Read More

Pentadriver

Recapped: 11/27/2015

What happened:  Pentagon beat Jack Evans to set up a tag title rematch. Mamba attacked Pimpinela Escarlata to continue their never ending feud.

This turns out to be Cibernetico’s last TV appearance. He jumps to All Elite soon after this airs.

What was good:  I liked the opener the best. The other matches were not bad, and it was an overall fine show.

Where can I watch it:  It’s on my channel and now on AAA’s channel Read More

Speedball shooting star press double knee smash

Recapped: 11/25/2015

What happened: Electroshock turned tecnico after the main event, with Hijo del Pirata Morgan and the rest of the maybe-Anarquia attacking Electroshock. Taurus reminds undefeated and Daga beat Australian Suicide as their feud continues.

What was good:  The atomicos and the tercera were fun.

Where can I watch it: It’s on my channel and AAA’s channel. Read More
