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. (more…)

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 (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. (more…)

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…)
