12/04 AAA TV Lineup (Tampico) – Guerra de Titanes 2015

Rey vs Mundo, unless Cena shows up.

AAA TV (FRI) 12/04/2015 Feria de Tampico, Tampico, Tamaulipas
1) Argenis, Dinastía, Faby Apache vs Mini Charly Manson, Taya, Willie Mack
2) Angélico & Jack Evans © vs Joe Lider & Pentagón Jr. and Averno & Chessman [AAA TAG]
3) Aerostar, Drago, Fénix vs Brian Cage, El Mesías, Taurus
4) Blue Demon, Electroshock, La Parka vs Daga, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Steve Pain
Daga’s group is back to being Anarquia.
5) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs ?, Hijo del Fantasma, Texano Jr.
6) Rey Misterio Jr. vs Johnny Mundo [AAA HEAVY]
vacant title

I’ll back to the matches and everything else. Let’s go with this line, said by actual (local) promoters and written down in a newspaper as if this is as a plausible thing.

Aunque ya son varias las contiendas confirmadas para el evento, se dio a conocer la posible presencia de “El Patrón”, Alberto del Río, además de Doctor Wagner y ¡John Cena!

Yes! AAA’s not just trying to get Alberto back for one show, but they’re going to bring John Cena to say Hola to all the folks in Tampico. I have a few doubts about that taking place. Meanwhile, Wagner’s on the actual poster too and they didn’t book him in a match. I need a perplexed emoji.

Looks like a two man tournament for the AAA Heavyweight title! That’s a bit non-traditional. On MLW Radio, it sounded like Konnan was still figuring out what he wanted to do and plans were subject to change, but then I have no idea why Dorian announced a tournament. It’s almost as if things are not making sense in AAA. Mundo is the heavy favorite – Konnan’s been pretty straightforward that Alberto was going to lose the title and he was feuding with Johnny. They could change plans since everyone knows (and Konnan also indicated he wasn’t going to have Alberto lose the title in the ring, at least at first, because everyone would’ve known.) The title probably should be on Rey, he’s the #1 guy.

There’s weeks of airing a bit about Hijo del Fantasma issuing an open challenge for Guerra de Titanes, and then he ends up facing no one.

Jack asks on Twitter for no more multiman matches, they build up an honest to goodness 2v2 tag match, and then Chessman and Averno are added in the last minute (and may win the belts to try and keep them around.) Anarquia are really good against tecnicos and are feuding with Australian Suicide for the last few months, so they’re going to pinball against the old rudos and Suicide (and Speedball) gets the night off. Willie Mack’s flown in to work an opener against Argenis? This card is bizarre, just totally random. Everyone needs some more sleep.

The article says this is being held at the fairgrounds, not the Auditorio. TV didn’t list a venue, but even that seems weird to me.

11/15 AAA TV Results (Ciudad Juarez)

AAA TV (SUN) 11/15/2015 Gimnasio Municipal Josué Neri Santos, Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua [@aleskywalker, @andgosto, @TKD_117, AAA]
1) Centinela, Mr. Alfa, Pagano b Aéreo, Dragón, Latino
Dark match. Pagano tried a Brillo Dorado but it went wrong. Aereo looked good.
2) Dinastía b Mini Abismo Negro [AAA MINI]
Dinastia’s 7th defense (5 on TV, 2 unofficially on spot shows) and first since June. Pagano & Aereo worked as seconds. Dinastia won cleanly.
3) Australian Suicide & Speedball b Daga & Steve Pain
Speedball beat Steve Pain in a very good match. Daga attacked Suicide after the match.
4) Garza Jr., Monsther Clown, Murder Clown b Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Zorro
Cuervo appeared as normal, though his name appeared as wrestling on the next Elite show in the Box Y Lucha released earlier that day. Garza Jr. got his first win. Zorro asked Cuervo & Scoria to join him in a new faction (so maybe Zorro really was the stalker?)
5) Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Parka Negra, Taurus b Blue Demon, Electroshock, La Parka
Pirata snuck in a foul on Electroshock.
6) Averno, Chessman, Psicosis I b Chris Masters, Psycho Clown, Rey Misterio Jr.
Psicosis I replaced Cibernetico (back to AAA), Chris Masters was the mystery tecnico. This was Rey & Psicosis’ first match in AAA since 1996 (they’ve met in Promo Azteca, WCW, CMLL and WWE since.) Psicosis first match in AAA since being fired in May 2014. Rey beat Psicosis clean with a frog splash as a tribute to Eddie Guerrero. Konnan joined Rey (in something probably not taped for TV), talking about past Juarez greats – Fishman, El Cobarde, Cinta de Oro, Rocky Star, Crazy 32, Crazy 33, Ari Romero and Eddie Guerrero.

Air Date: 12/05. AAA airing Guerra de Titanes on a Friday night changed the meaning of this taping. This is now the first show that’ll air after the last PPV, and is the start of the lame duck winter period. Sketching this out for TV

11/21: Xalapa part 1
11/28: Xalapa part 2
(Guerra de Titanes happens on 12/04)
12/06: Juarez (one part)
12/12: Guerra de Titanes part 1
12/19: Guerra de Titanes part 2
12/26,  01/02, 01/09: Best of/Year In Review material
01/16: next taping

There’s usually one more taping in December and one taping in late January, but AAA’s news for the year is almost over. It works out smoothly that this will also be the period when they’ll be busiest with Lucha Underground.

No mentioned of a AAA Mega heavyweight title tournament on the taping. Maybe they’re rethinking, but there’s generally not a sign of anything big for Guerra de Titantes. It’s like Heroes Inmortales where you can see some the undercard come together but they’re lacking a headline match. Konnan’s comments sounded like AAA had planned to do a title switch with Alberto (to Mundo? someone else?) and it doesn’t feel like they’ve come up with a replacement match. If anything, that heavyweight title tournament/decider might get added to the card not because of a need to have a champion, but a need to add a big match to the Guerra de Titanes.

Chris Masters is a rival of Rey Mysterio on the Que Viva el Rey show, but they just did Wagner turning on Rey and doing that twice in a short time would’ve been lame. (It’s also more likely Wagner will be back than Masters.) He and Psicosis are working the Que Viva el Rey shows.

I called Zorro being the stalker! I might be correct! This is the kind of cutting edge insight that drives people to luchablog dot com. No sign of Cuervo leaving town, no matter what was listed in Box Y Lucha. It seems like false advertisements and just bad acting for Elite to put those names out there if they’re not for sure coming, but it’s not like AAA can be critical of others advertising names who won’t be there.

Next taping is Guerra de Titanes on 12/04 in Tampico.

Edit: forgot to mention – this was a sell out, or really close. Good turnout for AAA’s return to Juarez with a TV taping.

AAA on Televisa: 2015-09-26

Gran Apache is a crazy grandfather

Recapped: 10/03/2015

What happenedLa Hiedra pinned Faby Apache, and decided this earned her a title shot. Taya disagreed. Pentagon beat Jack in some revenge for last week’s outcome. Mesias says he’s targeting Fenix, thought didn’t really do much of it in the main event.

What was good: The bonus tag match from UTDN and the main event tag were fun. I liked this show better than the Cancun one, though I may be on an island on that.

Where can I watch it: It’s on my channel and AAA’s channel with an extra match. (more…)

11/15 AAA TV Lineup (Ciudad Juarez)

New lineup on 10/29

AAA TV (SUN) 11/15/2015 Gimnasio Municipal Josué Neri Santos, Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua
1) Aéreo, Dragón, Latino vs Centinela, Mr. Alfa, Pagano
probably a locals dark match
2) Dinastía vs Mini Abismo Negro [AAA MINI]
Dinastia’s 7th defense (5 on TV, 2 unofficially on spot shows) and first since June.
3) Australian Suicide & Speedball vs Daga & Steve Pain
4) Garza Jr., Monsther Clown, Murder Clown vs Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Zorro
5) Blue Demon, Electroshock, La Parka vs Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Parka Negra, Taurus
6) ?, Psycho Clown, Rey Misterio Jr. vs Averno, Chessman, Cibernético

Poster here. The silhouette appears to be Myzteziz, but I’m 95% sure they just blacked him out becauase he was already in that spot in the original promo and it won’t him in the match.

Every match but the local match has been changed with Myzteziz and Alberto (and for reasons less clear but perfectly fine with me, Joe Lider) all off the show. This is not the last card to change; Wrestling Observer earlier reported Alberto el Patron is expected to go to RAW on Monday and not Nuevo Laredo. That leaves Guerra de Titanes as the only TV date Alberto could working, but that seems incredibly doubtful at this point.

Whatever’s going to happen to handle that will happen on Monday, and this will be the peaceful aftermath and/or a frantic attempt to put together a new card for Guerra de Titanes. On that note, it might be important that it’s the trios champions together in the main event in a non-title match – or it might not, since Misterio is probably going to be involved with the title and/or Johnny Mundo.

Averno is now booked in Juarez and Monterrey at the same exact time. Can’t do both. Everyone expects him to jump to Caristico’s side, to the point where I think people may be wanting to will it into happening, but Averno’s been super professional in the past about giving notice about leaving.

This is overall a much better card than the original one. A bonus title match with Dinastia is always welcome, and a much better prospect than the Taurus/Electroshock match. Electroshock instead faces off against ex-friend Hijo del Pirata, which works better for him. The Daga/Steve Pain vs Suicide/Speedball match plays off the Suicide/Daga feud – maybe they have the singles match in December, but I’d be perfectly fine getting that tag match repeatedly.

Important discussion topic: what if Zorro is the guy stalking La Secta? That seems like something Zorro would do. Zorro versus Garza Jr. seems correct in general.

Original Post follows

AAA TV (SUN) 11/15/2015 Gimnasio Municipal Josué Neri Santos, Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua
1) Aéreo, Dragón, Latino vs Centinela, Mr. Alfa, Pagano
probably a locals dark match
2) Dinastía & Mascarita Sagrada vs Mini Charly Manson & Mini Psycho Clown
3) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Daga, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Steve Pain
4) Electroshock vs Taurus [bull terrier]
5) Blue Demon & La Parka vs Joe Lider & Parka Negra
6) El Patrón Alberto & Rey Misterio Jr. vs Averno & Myzteziz

Air Date: 11/21 (very iffy that far out.)

Pagano’s working the opener, so Pagano shared the card. (It doesn’t look like the “official” AAA card because the text on the bottom looked edited to include the Ciudad Juarez locals match, but that’s actually more helpful for us.) This taping is out of order and who knows when AAA will officially release it on their own – when AAA can’t issue a statement about Myzteziz after three days, it’s probably not a great idea to count on them sending out their lineups.

Myzteziz himself is listed in the main event, so this’ll change. That match had little chance of it happening anyway; whatever happened between Alberto & Myzteziz didn’t appear to be resolved and it would’ve been tough to get them in the same ring. (That’s issue is more likely to be a reason why Myzteziz left AAA than ‘they were going to have him drop his mask at TripleMania’. AAA doesn’t have the power over it’s luchadors that WWE has over theirs and Myzteziz wasn’t going to lose his mask unless he was happy doing so.) It might have been something where AAA still tried make it happen the day of the show and only changed things then, but it doesn’t really matter now.

This is not a promising lineup as is. That semifinal is very unappetizing. There’s no obvious reason for the bull terrier match (except our new friend Taurus is a bull.) The notAnarkia versus Psycho Circus match probably won’t be the best way to get the new rudo act over, though I think they’re likely to actually win. The minis match should be good, but it’s no sure thing to air. Maybe the main event will be good with the right replacement, but this looks like a skippable taping for the dedicated fan. This is also possibly the last taping before Guerra de Titanes and there’s no obvious clues on what will main event that show.

We haven’t yet seen the 11/06 Xalapa show prior to this, but that figures to turn up from Xalapa people on Facebook soon enough.

10/17 AAA TV Results (Reynosa)

AAA TV (SAT) 10/17/2015 Gimnasio de la Universidad Autonoma de Tamaulipas, Reynosa, Tamaulipas [AAA]
1) Faby Apache, Magnifico, Pimpinela Escarlata b Gigga, Imagen de Oro, Taya
Mr. 450 and Imagen II were removed from this match.
2) Daga, Demon Rocker, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Steve Pain b Aerostar, Australian Suicide, Mr. 450, Speedball
Mr. 450 and Demon Rocker (listed as Machine Rocker, looked like Demon Rocker in the photo) were added to the match. Daga & Suicide continue to feud, with Daga using a middle rope Canadian Destroyer on Australian Suicide. 
3) Hijo del Fantasma, Taurus, Texano b Angélico, Garza Jr., Jack Evans
Moved down a spot. Garza Jr. and Taurus were the mystery wrestlers. Taurus defeated Jack with a Michinoku Driver to keeep his streak going. Sometime in here, Fantasma lead La Sociedad out to talk about winning all the titles (as usual). Fantasma said he’d defend the cruiserweight title at Guerra de Titanes and Texano Jr. threatened Garza Jr.
4) La Parka, Monsther Clown, Murder Clown b Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
Moved up a spot
5) Psycho Clown & Rey Mysterio Jr. b Electroshock & Johnny Mundo
Electroshock replaced Myzteziz and lost to Rey. Mundo attacked Rey after the match and Electroshock tried to break it up. Mundo went after Electroshock instead. Daga, Steve Pain and Hijo del Pirata ran in and attacked Electroshock. Rey and Psycho made the save, and Electroshock appears to be a tecnico.

Air Date: 10/31

Electroshock is booked as a tecnico on future AAA tapings, but it’s still nice they actually booked a turn and even wrapped up the Pirata/Electroshock partnership. Stories with endings are always better than stories without them.

Fantasma will have two Cruiserweight title matches on AAA TV this year, both coming when he put out an open challenge to anyone. Maybe the reason Taya and Pentagon & Lider never had title matches is they just never got enough microphone time to ask.

Second match is Speedball’s debut. If there was anything special they did to introduce him, it doesn’t come across in the recap. (Without knowing anything else, you couldn’t tell between him and Mr. 450 which was the extra guy for a couple teams and who was the new regular.) Suicide was feuding with Pentagon Jr. until Pentagon Jr. got better things to do, and it looks like they’re moving Daga into that spot. That match should be super when it airs on TV.

Nothing about Myzteziz mentioned in the taping results. It’s possible they said something during the Sociedad bit, that’s where I’d expect it. They mostly seem to be going with the idea he no longer exists.

Next taping was supposed to be Monday, but will now be on November 2nd. Pretty quiet AAA stretch until them. Maybe they’ll announce a Myzteziz replacement for Juarez. Perhaps they’ll announced the Guerra de Titanes location or date soon.

11/02 AAA TV Lineup (Nuevo Laredo)

Updated 2015-10-16

AAA TV (MON) 11/02/2015 Polyforum la Fe, Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas
1) Faby Apache, Mr. 450, Pimpinela Escarlata vs Hombre Sin Miedo, Mocho Cota Jr., Taya
2) Aerostar, Australian Suicide, Laredo Kid vs Daga, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Steve Pain
3) Angélico, Garza Jr., Jack Evans vs Hijo del Fantasma, Joe Lider, Pentagón Jr.
Garza Jr was originally listed only as a surprise wrestler.
4) Electroshock, Fénix, Psycho Clown vs Taurus, Texano Jr., Zorro
Match added to the card on October 16th. Fenix, Psycho Clown and Texano Jr. had previously been booked in the main event, Zorro. Taurus and Electroshock were added to the card.
5) Drago, La Parka, Speedball vs Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
6) El Patrón Alberto & Rey Misterio Jr. vs Brian Cage & Johnny Mundo
Cage & Alberto added to the card on 2015-10-16, with Myzteziz being removed.

Promocions Cantu released a new lineup. Not exactly a new poster – Myzteziz is hanging there in the background – but AAA is doing a nice job of making up for pushing back the date and losing one of the top guys: El Patron Alberto, Brian Cage, Zorro, Taurus and Electroshock are all being added. People who wanted to see Myzteziz will probably be very okay with the replacements. (Garza Jr. was also revealed to be the mystery tecnico in the tercera.) This might be the exact line that happens on the 2nd – Mr. 450 is probably not in Mexico for that long – but it’s good they’re even updating lineups. That should be a standard thing to do, but it’s not so it’s got to be appreciated when it’s actually done.

Adding a match seems to make this a two week taping (airing on TV November 7th and November 14th) and bumps back Xalapa (November 21st) and Ciudad Juarez (November 28th). That leaves the December 5th, 12th and 19th TV shows left open (with Best Of probably starting the following week.) Two of those weeks are Guerra de Titanes, so maybe just one more regular TV taping left to announce for this year, unless they’re going to carry extra TV into 2016.

Electroshock is a tecnico? Or is going to turn tecnico tomorrow night? I’m not sure, though it might begin to explain why he’s on the opposite side of Taurus in Juarez, since he’s now on the opposite side from him here too. That Juarez card is probably the next to get rearranged (and it can only be for the best.)

Otherwise, this should be a good card. New main event is interesting – if Mundo and Alberto are now matched up, does that mean we’re getting Brian Cage versus Rey Misterio Jr.? That’s intriguing.

AAA TV (MON) 10/19/2015 Polyforum la Fe, Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas
1) Faby Apache, Mr. 450, Pimpinela Escarlata vs Hombre Sin Miedo, Mocho Cota Jr., Taya
2) Aerostar, Australian Suicide, Laredo Kid vs Daga, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Steve Pain
3) ?, Angélico, Jack Evans vs Hijo del Fantasma, Joe Lider, Pentagón Jr.
4) Drago, La Parka, Speedball vs Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
5) Fénix, Psycho Clown, Rey Misterio Jr. vs Johnny Mundo, Myzteziz, Texano Jr.

Air Date: 10/31 or 11/07. Thinking more the first.

Remains weird the tapings for after Heroes Inmortales have leaked out and not for the show itself. Maybe they’ll holding it until after tonight’s Cancun taping.

Same roster as Reynosa, same basic matches with a few people moved around and a different set of locals. Laredo Kid will be in a fantastic match, that’s pretty cool. Speedball is getting brought all the way to Mexico for a match with La Parka and the Hell Brothers, that seems a waste. (Even though it’d be a demotion for the new guy, I’d rather see Pimpi in that spot and Speedball int he opener.) Weird the Reynosa show has two mystery person and this one only has one – whoever is coming in as the rudo isn’t sticking around for both shows.

(I guessed Chris Hero might be one of the surprises on the last taping, so something where he could only work one show before flying to NOAH or something would make sense. Except, the closest NOAH tour starts on October 16th, prior to Reynosa tour. It’s their singles match league tournament, which Hero was in last year and could be in this year. It’d be impossible for him to be in AAA if he’s on that tour. So maybe we need another guess.)

I understand the travel limitations mean these these cards can’t have a variety of people but, if these double tapings are going to keep on happening, it’d be nice if there were something besides slightly different meaningless trios matches on back to back weeks of TV. The television product would be better if it felt like there were meaningful matches going on. Taya’s on both these shows, Taya’s had zero televised defenses in her year plus as champion, why not just have a Taya title defense against Faby on one of these shows? (There might be a problem getting a good finish, but AAA never has a probably doing a bad finish.) I’d assume the tag team title match is being saved for a reason, but they could do Psycho Clown versus any one on the rudo side in the same way. Good TV needs some special hook to happen one every show, and this is more the CMLL-like way of making boring TV then the Lucha Underground way of making something people have to check out each week.

This may be uneventful TV, but every match – except that semimain – has a chance of being very good and I’m interested in seeing it. Weirdly, the cycle of TV leading up to TripleMania appears to be the most boring section of TV this year. The TV prior was better, the TV leading to Heroes Inmortales looks good, and these shows leading to Guerra de Titanes will at least have some good matches.

No idea of when the next taping is, because this is far into the future. There should be 2 or 3 more tapings after this until Guerra de Titanes. The end of the year is already on the horizon.

11/06 AAA TV Lineup (Xalapa)

AAA TV (THU) 11/06/2015 Arena Xalapa, Xalapa, Veracruz
1) Goya Kong, Maravilla, Pimpinela Escarlata vs La Hiedra, Lady Shani, Mamba
2) Aerostar, Australian Suicide, Fireball vs Daga, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Steve Pain
3) Angélico, Garza Jr., Jack Evans vs Hijo del Fantasma, Súper Fly, Texano Jr.
4) Drago, Murder Clown, Speedball vs Brodus Clay, El Mesías, Taurus
5) Fénix, Psycho Clown, Rey Misterio Jr. vs Johnny Mundo, Low-Ki, Pentagón Jr.

Air Date: 11/14

That didn’t take long! Thanks to @CarlaDagaGirl. This looks like a temporary poster too, but it’s enough to start selling tickets.

Low-Ki (phonetically spelled Law Kid) and ex-WWE-er Brodus Clay look like new additions, but it might just be a one night thing. Both (and Mundo) are among the names working the ZZinc show the next day in Veracruz, and AAA might have just been splitting the cost to use them. Clay is theoretically still under contract to TNA and would be needed for their TV shows, if there were any more after this point. Low-Ki was last in AAA in 2006, when the team of AJ Styles, Samoa Joe and Low-ki defeated Crazy Boy, Juvi and Joe Lider in the finals of a tournament.

Speedball continues to show up here. AAA hasn’t given him said anything, but Smash Wrestling said Mike Speedball Bailey would miss their next show to start with AAA.

Flamita returns as Fireball, facing some of the same guys as his last appearance. It wasn’t mentioned in the results, but Daga attacked Suicide during a backstage interview segment (with Australian Suicide!), so they’re meant to be feuding. That match doesn’t need a reason to happen because it’ll be awesome on it’s own, but it’s good to give them something to do.

Again, tough to tell what they might be going with for Guerra de Titanes, and it now might be different from what they planned when this show was put together. Maybe we’ll get one more taping to figure it out. Interesting that this will be the fourth straight one week taping and eight in nine weeks. They seem to run more taping when they can get local promoters to pay for htem, so all the one week shows means that part of the business is doing much better than it was earlier in the year.

10/09 AAA TV Results (Tlahuelilpan)

AAA TV (FRI) 10/09/2015 Plaza de Toros, Tlahuelilpan, Hidalgo [AAA]
1) Maravilla, Niño Hamburguesa, Pimpinela Escarlata b Argos, Lady Shani, Mamba
Lady Maravilla again wrestled as only “Maravilla”, probably to avoid confusion with SHani.
2) Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Súper Fly b Argenis, Australian Suicide, Bengala
3) Hijo del Fantasma, Joe Lider, Taurus b Angélico, Drago, Jack Evans
moved down a spot. Taurus was the mystery rudo and continued his winning ways, defeating Drago with a “Michinoku Driver con giro.” Pentagon Jr. appeared after the match to challenge Jack & Angelico to a tag title rematch.
4) Daga, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Steve Pain b Aerostar, La Parka, Súper Nova
Moved up a spot. Daga beat Nova. Australian Suicide attacked Daga after the match for unclear reasons.
5) El Mesías, Pentagón Jr., Texano Jr. b El Patrón Alberto, Fénix, Psycho Clown
Mesias defeated Fenix again, and took his mask again.

Air Date: 10/24, just one week of TV.

Tlahuelilpan is a blackhole for news coverage – this is a small town that has a big fair every year and brings in AAA as part of the entertainment – and apparently a blackhole for internet coverage too. No live results because they couldn’t get a signal. Last night was a tough night to lose internet access.

AAA appeared to know of Myzteziz’s plans when this taping took place and Argos & Argenis weren’t just immediately fired, so maybe they’ll be okay. Both of these brothers (and Mini Murder Clown) were added to AAA’s roster before Myzteziz started with them, but it was part of a long term recruitment plan to land Myzteziz when he would inevitably return to Mexico. Their positions would be iffy if Myzteziz left on good terms. Myzteziz is leaving on much worse than good terms. AAA can’t really do a lot to punish him unless they want to take this to court, but they can punish those related to him. Argenis has become actually fine enough for the position he’s in. Argos has not, and he’s got so little role as it that it would be tough to tell if he ever left AAA. (This is his first TV appearance in 16 months.) Argenis is also trios champion in Lucha Underground, but the role just calls for a generic skinny guy – if they had to, they could sneak someone else in the spot.

Thinking there’s something with Suicide & Daga in the segunda that wasn’t mentioned. That’ll be a fun feud. The recap didn’t mention if Pentagon still wanted Lider as his partner. As much as we might not want that, I’d assume that’s still the plan. Main event still points towards a Fenix/Mesias match to close out the year (and maybe a Fenix win since Mesias is winning all the build up.) They’re really going with Taurus, which is kind of amazing.

Next taping is a week from today in Reynosa. Myzteziz is scheduled in the main event. Averno’s on that card too.

10/04 AAA TV Results (Heroes Inmortales)

AAA TV (SUN) 10/04/2015 Domo de San Luis, San Luis Potosí, San Luis Potosí [The Gladiatores]
Heroes Inmortales IX
1) Taya © b Goya Kong, La Hiedra, Lady Shani, Maravilla [Reina del Reinas]
The two mystery people were Lady Shani (debuted on last taping) and Lady Maravilla. A good match, with Taya retaining by defeating (Lady) Maravilla. First defense.
2) Angélico & Jack Evans b Joe Lider & Pentagón Jr. © and Daga & Steve Pain [AAA TAG]
The two Perros del Mal teams fought like they were never allies. Myzteziz strangely came to the ring during the match, attacking everyone and costing Pentagon Jr. the win after a package piledriver. Most of the match chased Pentagon to the stage, leaving Steve Pain to be beat by Jack for the title change. Jack & Angelico are tag champions. Lider & Pentagon end their reign with zero defenses, but signaled they wanted a rematch.
3) Drago & Fénix b Brian Cage & El Mesías
Drago & Fenix fought well, but lost to Cage & Mesias. Mesias took Fenix’s mask after the match.
4) Taurus b Cibernético, La Parka, Blue Demon Jr., Averno, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Electroshock, Aerostar, Chessman, Niño Hamburguesa [Copa Antonio Pena]
The debuting Taurus got the win, eliminating La Parka last in the usual royal rumble fashion. Antonio Pena was honored with a moment of appluase before the match.
5) Garza Jr., Psycho Clown, Rey Mysterio Jr. b Hijo del Fantasma, Myzteziz, Texano Jr.
The debuting Garza Jr. is Hijo del Ninja, doing Hector Garza spots. He looked fine, but took the loss to Myzteziz. Myzteziz had problems with his partners but seemed on the same page after the win.
6) El Patrón Alberto © DQ Johnny Mundo [AAA HEAVY]
second defense. Johnny was caught using a guitar as a weapon by Hijo del Tirantes. Mundo had earlier slapped Tirantes for not counting fast enough, so Tirantes called the DQ. Cage (Mundo’s second) and Mundo attacked Alberto and Psycho Clown (Alberto’s second.) Rey made the save. Myzteziz attacked him. La Sociedad ran out to attack the tecnicos and Myzteziz, smashing a guitar over his head for betraying them earlier. Alberto and Rey eventually ran the rudos off the end the show, but did not save Myzteziz.

Air Date: 10/17 & 10/24

All the details are the recap post below.

AAA Heroes Inmortales: 2015-10-04 

Recapped: 10/04/2015

What happened: A show long storyline had Myzteziz annoy La Sociedad enough that they ended up laying him out with a guitar by the end of the show. He wanted to be on his own and appears to be – Alberto & Rey made no attempt to save him.

Alberto retained the heavyweight title over Johnny Mundo when Mundo was spotted using that same guitar by Hijo del Tirantes. Mundo had slapped Tirantes moments earlier, and Tirantes played it fair after that as he usually does, disqualifying Mundo. The rudos beat up Mundo and second Psycho Clown, Rey made the save, Myzteziz attacked him, La Sociedad attacked Myzteziz and eventually Alberto and Rey ran everyone out. Alberto thanked his hometown fans after the match.


Pentagon Jr. & Joe Lider’s ten month zero defense tag team title reign came to an end earlier in the night. Angelico & Jack Evans won the championships for the second time when Jack pinned Steve Pain (the only rudo not wearing Perros del Mal gear.) Pentagon Jr. might have won the match and kept the title earlier except for Myzteziz running into break up a pin. Myzteziz seemed to attack all three teams and there was no rhyme or reason to his attack.

Myzteziz also did not get along with Hijo del Fantasma and Texano Jr. in their trios match against Rey Mysterio Jr., Psycho Clown and the debuting Garza Jr. (Hijo del Ninja doing Hector Garza spots.) The rudos kept it together enough to get the win – Myzteziz beating Garza – but it apparently was a fakeout to set up the attack later.

a bit familiar

One Perros del Mal member did win on the night: Taya kept the Reina de Reinas championship by making her first defense. She pinned the debuting Lady Maravilla with her northern lights suplex/double stomp combination. Lady Shani was the other surprise wrestler in a surprisingly strong match.

Not all the debuting luchadors lost. Taurus, a new Minotaur-iish creature, shockingly won this year’s Copa Pena. He threw out half the field, eliminating La Parka last to win. Not much is known about Taurus but he appears to be – like Garza Jr., Shani and Maravilla – a Mexican luchador give a new/bigger role rather than any of the rumors foreigners or outside big names.


What was good? Most of the show. The three way tag was the best match on the show, with the women’s match also being a standout. Most everything was good, though the main event had the combination of the usual AAA main event tropes and a clear desire not to beat either man. The LU Alberto/Mundo matches were better than this one, but you got the impression this wasn’t the last one in AAA.

There were no real problems with the iPPV once you got it running. (I think it went out for 2 seconds for me, it was fine when I refreshed.) Getting it running was the tough part. An issue with Paypal slowly processing payments was preventing people from being authorized to watch the show. Some people had to wait for a half hour before they were able to get in, some people never seemed to be able to get in.

Where can I watch it? If you can get them to take your money, the VOD is already up on http://internetvluchalibreaaa.com/. The show should start to air on AAA’s TV show starting on 10/17 (one week later than expected, as Monterrey was cut into two shows.)

double pin!
