12/07 AAA TV Results (Guerra de Titanes 2014)

AAA TV (SUN) 12/07/2014 Auditorio Benito Juárez, Zapopan, Jalisco [AAA]
***Guerra de Titanes, 2014***
1) Dinastía © b Mini Charly Manson [AAA MINI]
Dinastia fifth known defense. Mascarita Sagrada & Mini Psycho Clown were seconds and interfered. Good match.
2) Sexy Star & Taya Valkyrie b Faby Apache & Ivelisse
Sexy pinned Faby (with Taya’s help.) Another pull apart brawl after the match.
3) Joe Lider & Pentagón Jr. b Fénix & Myzteziz and Angélico & Jack Evans © [AAA TAG]
Fenix & Myzteziz missed stereo tope con giros thru a table and Lider & Pentagon beat Jack to win the titles. Pentagon & Lider are 13th Champions. Pentagon now holds half of both tag titles (Mixed w/Sexy Star.) Jack & Angelico fall on fourth known defense.
4) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown © b Averno & Chessman [AAA TRIOS]
Cibernetico was missing from the match for unclear reasons. Clowns beat Chessman and Cibernetico showed up a couple minutes after the match. Psycho Circus eight known defense.
5) Aerostar b Súper Fly [mask]
Seconds were Nino Hamburguesa and Hijo del Fantasma. Tirantes started at referee, but Joaquin replaced him with Piero. Aerostar did a dive off the light tower onto all three, then later beat Super Fly for the win. Super Fly is Erick Aguilar Muñoz, 10 years a wrestler, from Puebla.
6) El Patrón Alberto b Texano Jr. © [AAA HEAVY]
Mesias and Perro were seconds. Plenty of weapon usage. Tirantes started as ref in this one too, but Alberto took him out with a superkick. Piero replaced him. Texano tried to counter the armbar with a foul again, but Alberto blocked it and armbared him for the win and title change. Alberto is the 12th champion and first person to have won both the AAA & CMLL Heavyweight titles. Texano falls on his 14th known defense.

Air Date: 01/03 and 01/10, though it might sneak up on YouTube prior that that.

Top two matches sounded particularly good, but the entire show seems to have come off well. Aerostar/Super Fly is being called a MOTYC level match and the main event was what it needed to be. The Fenix/Myzteziz wipe out spot in the tag match is crazy.

Not mentioned in the results was another Perros del Mal/Konnan promo segment, promoting how they had almost all the titles (as a tease in them stealing the main event, I’d guess.) The main event ended with all the tecnicos celebrating with Alberto, as a mirror version of that earlier segment.

No one seems to know what the deal is with Cibernetico showing up late. If it’s an angle, and it’s probably an angle, they didn’t get it over on the PPV or in the results. Maybe there’s some backstage vignette which will fill in the blank, but it didn’t go anywhere here. The Sociedad Ultimatium didn’t seem to go anywhere too, so something unrevealed that connects the two is possible. There also wasn’t the big angle to set thing up for 2015, though Alberto/Perro and Myzteziz/Fenix for the tag titles are obviously out there, and they’re setting up something for the women. Their post match fights feel like teases to a hair match, but I can’t imagine any of those four being thrilled with that idea.

This did only air on PPV; even finding pirated feeds was a problem. (That also might suggest not a lot of people bought this, but those kind of things only take one of the right people to get a feed.) No word on the attendance yet. Show started about 15 minutes after the top of the hour and they finished the main event just a few minutes before 9pm CT – Psycho, Mesias and Alberto were posing on the stage as Sky cut away.

Unsure if we’ve got another taping in 2015. I haven’t seen one mentioned yet on TV, but they were locked in on Guerra de Titanes this week. Next week will make it clear.

11/30 AAA TV Results (Tuxtla Gutiérrez)

AAA TV (SUN) 11/30/2014 Explanada del Parque Bicentenario, Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas [AAA]
1) Mini Drago, Octagoncito, Pasion Kristal b Mamba, Mini Murder Clown, Mini Murder Clown
Drago beat Mini Psycho Clown.
2) Australian Suicide & Ivelisse Vélez DQ Dark Cuervo & Sexy Star
Pentagon Jr., a one man immigration task force, ran in to attack Suicide and try to get to Ivelisse for the DQ. This led to a mixed tag title challenge.
3) Aerostar b Súper Fly
Mask ripping chair brawl, with Aerostar winning via top rope frankensteiner.
4) Angélico & Jack Evans b Hijo del Fantasma & Zorro
Jack 630 senton on Zorro.
5) Blue Demon Jr., El Elegido, El Mesías b Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
Demon beat Averno to get revenge for Cibernetico attacking him way back when.
6) Joe Lider & Pentagón Jr. b Fénix & Myzteziz
Lots of Lider style weapons. Pentagon beat Fenix with a Destroyer. Pentagon and Lider declared they’d win the tag titles at Guerra de Titanes. Angelico and Jack ran them off, then had an uneasy moment with Fenix and Myzteziz.

Air Date: 12/20 and 12/27

AAA notes over 10,000 people turned out for the show. The last show here was similar well attended, free and I’m assuming this one was as well, but I’m not 100% sure. There was a locals dark match prior to the show.

Now that we know PPV happening, this is one of those weird tapings which builds up match we’ll already have seen by this point (though not for the people who are only following this promotion on TV.) It’s a lot of place keeping with some interesting results. Hell Brothers lose again which makes it seem like they’ll surely starting winning at Guerra de Titanes, but Aerostar also won and I’d still be shocked if he lost the mask match. The Angelico & Jack Evans appearances feel like a correction to them being brushed aside in this build previously (plus we found out Zorro is a rudo this week), but it’s still hard to see them winning next Sunday.

The mixed tag team feud is new, logical and a good sign of AAA having an idea of how they wanted to use someone new right away. They go back to women’s tag match (Faby/Ivelisse vs Taya/Sexy) at Guerra de Titanes but maybe the tag title match comes some time later.

Not sure when though; the audio preview Oscar and Enrique did prior to last night’s taping called this show the pentultimate of the 2014. That’d mean AAA is done after Guerra de Titanes. They’ll have enough shows taped to last thru 01/10, and they can make it to February if the three best of shows are worked in there.

Next taping is Sunday for Guerra de Titanes.

11/28 AAA TV Results (DF)

AAA TV (FRI) 11/28/2014 Gimnasio Olímpico Juan de la Barrera, Ciudad de México, Distrito Federal [AAA]
1) Bengala, Drago, Niño Hamburguesa b Carta Brava Jr., Eterno, Hijo de Pirata Morgan
10:47. Dark match? Nino Hamburguesa/Bengala piggy back top rope splash on Pirata & Eterno.
2) Faby Apache & Ivelisse b Sexy Star & Taya Valkyrie
10:33. Ivelisse was introduced last by Faby Apache as a new AAA tecnica. Taya struggled in this match. Tirantes went down, Ivelisse has Sexy beat with an exploder, and Piero ran in to count the pin. The two teams continued to brawl after the match and had to be pulled apart.
3) Mini Charly Manson & Súper Fly b Aerostar & Dinastía
Ref is Maya, who worked slightly heel as in Leon. Lots of mask ripping between Super Fly and Aerostar. Super Fly limped around after taking a big salida de bandera. Aerostar got dropped hard on the two powerbombs to finish it. Super Fly was ripping up Aerostar’s gear even as he was pinning him, came off as if the pinfall was maybe not supposed to be at that moment. Super Fly said the same would happen in Zapopan. Rudos left the tecnicos laying.
4) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown b Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
7:28. brawl, and not awlays a clean one. Chessman was done after the match, and the doctor was out (really immediately after 3, sooner than any help could’ve been called.) the doctor didn’t help Chessman quick enough and the rudos attacked him.
5) Fénix & Myzteziz b Pentagón Jr. & Zema Ion
9:07. Spanish Fly on Zema Ion after a good match. Joe Lider ran in thru the crowd after the match to beat up the tecnicos. Rudos said they’d win the tag titles at GdT, tecnicos recovered to say the same, everyone pretty much pretended Angelico & Jack didn’t exist.
6) Texano Jr. b El Patrón Alberto [street]
18:00. Perros (without Lider, so he was a surprise later on) came out to the ring after the third match and said pretty much nothing of note. Perro was Texano’s second. (The ex-)Ricardo Rodriguez debuted as Alberto’s ring announcer, same as in WWE. Both guys wore street clothes for the fight. Hijo de Tirantes is referee. Ricardo left before the match and Alberto has to fight off Perro and Tirantes while dealing with Texano. Alberto kicked out of a powerbomb thru the table and a belt shot before Perro came in the ring to help stomp him more. Ricardo made the save (or tried to, slipping in dress shoes) and eventualy took Texano with a dive. Alberto got the best of Perro and got the Rompe Destinos armbar on Texano, but Texano escaped, fouled him and beat Alberto again (much like Guerra de Titanes.) Texano said he’d still be champ after Guerra de Titanes. Alberto disagreed, then cleaned house on the tencios. Pentagon and Joe Lider ran in so they could get beat up too.

Air Date: 12/06, 12/13 and, uh, last night. We’ll circle back to that.

Ivelisse debuted as the mystery woman, which was the most likely outcome. She and Sexy Star are basically playing the opposite roles here as they do in Lucha Underground. They’re meant to be different universes, which won’t be changing soon, but I still have this feeling that they’ll end up switching sides in Lucha Underground before long.

Dr. Lucha had been saying that AAA was attempting to bring over a woman from CMLL for this spot. If that’s the case, it went how it usually goes, but might mean Ivelisse was not who was originally in mind for that spot. This doesn’t seem like great news for Jennifer Blake, who’s now the third most important tecnica (a mostly non TV spot in AAA; think La Jarochita) and the third most important foreign woman (in a company that’s tended to only employ two.) Jennifer got really good this year and now looks to be on the fringes.

The only thing I could figure out about the Perros speech is they were trying to get the crowd to boo him when he came out later. Crowd was really into Alberto at any rate. Texano got the win in almost exactly the same fashion as Heroes Inmortales, but it was also made clear that Perro vs Alberto is the much bigger feud and Texano’s just an obstacle to that. Still, Texano winning all these times and then just losing once at Guerra de Titanes doesn’t seem like a feud ender (but a rematch at Rey de Reyes would mean pausing the Alberto/Perro feud for three more months, it’s an issue problem.)

Last two matches were the best two. Opener was fun too. AAA mentioned it in their recap so there’s a good chance it’ll air on TV (and that this is a two week taping.) 2 & 3 were more build up matches for Guerra de Titanes than good matches on this show. Not that I’m sure Psycho Circus/Hell Brothers is ever really going to be good (but at least it’s over.) Taya should destroy all recordings of the women’s match.

The big news was this show streamed live on http://internetvluchalibreaaa.com (and was still available there at last check.) Internet.TV, a streaming sports video site, is owned by the same people who own the AYM and LAS cable networks. (Commercials starting our amiga Elisa are shown on those channels about 10 times an hour.) It’s been going for at least a year as a paysite and regularly transmits baseball games from Mexico and Puerto Rico among various other sports. They have various subscription models, where you could get everything the offer or just a certain league, and they have prepaid subscription cards at OXXOs and other convenient stores if you don’t use credit. A lot of the AYM/LAS onscreen seems a little shaky, but it  appears they have a better handle on the internet stuff. There’s just no way of telling how many people actually use it and what load it can handle.

Until last night, I guess. Not a lot of people knew this stream was happening: I found out about 3 hours by the show and AAA announced it about 30 minutes before the 9pm listed start time. My hunch is AAA was a little concerned about hurting walk up ticket sales by announcing the show as free. (They’re now claiming a sell out.) I’m also assuming AAA didn’t want to hype this up and deal with people complaining to them about a failed stream again. This was almost AAA doing an internal test run but letting people diehard/random enough to be around late on a Friday night look in on it.

It seemed to go okay. There was some buffering issues when everyone was jumping on at the beginning, which resulted in some people being minutes behind until they manually refreshed it. The buffering circle popped up a couple times for me during Ivelisse’s entrance but otherwise never came back. I watched it at the middle quality to play it safe but others were having it on high and having no issues. I’d guess no more people saw this than a typical Sunday afternoon Terra show – and so far less than an AAA major show – but the stream seemed to pass the test.

AAA had said, many months ago, that they’d like to air Guerra de Titanes on iPPV. (They were hopeful but not definite about doing the same for Heroes Inmortales, and that didn’t take place.) It’s only 8 days away and there’s been no announcement to of an iPPV, but this looks like an obvious trial to see if they could that iPPV successful. The big difference is this is in Mexico City and Guerra de Titanes is in Zapopan, but even may not be so big. Again, the internet.tv people are a TV company, so they’re probably beaming the signal via their existing TV equipment to a central (DF?) headquarters and streaming out there; being in Jalisco wouldn’t seem to matter for this any more than the non-Mexico City baseball games they already cover. AAA might again wait to the last minute to announce anything about a stream for the same reasons as this, but it’s worth keeping an eye out for it next Sunday.

AAA travels to Tuxtla Gutirrez for a taping on Sunday with Pentagon & Joe Lider vs Myzteziz & Fenix on top. That reminds me of another takeaway from this show: Texano beating Alberto would not be the biggest upset at Guerra de Titanes. The completely dismissed Angelico & Jack Evans actually keeping the tag titles would be.

12/07 AAA TV Lineup (Zapopan) – Guerra de Titanes 2014

source: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B21x7OLIUAAp_pd.jpg

AAA TV (SUN) 12/07/2014 Auditorio Benito Juárez, Zapopan, Jalisco
***Guerra de Titanes, 2014***
1) Dinastía © vs Mini Charly Manson [AAA MINI]
Dinastia fifth known defense.
2) ? & Faby Apache vs Sexy Star & Taya Valkyrie
3) Fénix & Myzteziz vs Angélico & Jack Evans © and Joe Lider & Pentagón Jr. [AAA TAG]
Jack & Angelico fourth known defense.
4) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown © vs Averno, Chessman, Cibernético [AAA TRIOS]
Psycho Circus eighth known defense.
5) Aerostar vs Súper Fly [mask]
seconds are Nino Hamburguesa and Hijo del Fantasma
6) El Patrón Alberto vs Texano Jr. © [AAA HEAVY]
Mesias and Perro are seconds. Texano 14th known defense.

Air Date: 01/03 and 01/10? That doesn’t sound right but it’s not clear this point. AAA previously indicated they wanted to sell this thru on iPPV, but there’s been no official talk about that as of yet.

This is about what it looked like AAA had in store after Monday’s show in Leon. The surprise is no more surprises. These usually go to seven or eight matches to get a few more people involved, but that’s not what happened here. AAA does squeeze in Perro Jr., Mesias, Fantasma and Hamburguesa (???) as seconds. La Parka getting involved in the trios title match would make sense with what they’ve done before.

It’s about usual TV taping size, though the matches a lot bigger. The main event should be the coronation of Alberto as the top guy. There’s no point in Alberto messing around with Texano (or anyone else) if he’s really main eventing against Perro at TripleMania. It takes a long time for AAA to get those kind of things set up so they’d need to get it started here if they were serious about it.

Alberto apparently indicated this past weekend that the two US companies he’s signing with are Lucha Underground and TNA. TNA announced their new TV deal today, but their schedule has not been made public and there’s no telling how it would overlap. I would assume AAA has top priority, but we don’t know that until we know it and I’m not sure that’s a big issue even if it’s not. AAA hasn’t been afraid to give titles to guys who are otherwise occupied (Demon!) and aren’t concerned with frequent title defenses, so a TNA deal shouldn’t be an issue – but that’s the only thing I can think of that might be a reason Alberto doesn’t win.

My hunch, based on how they had been used before this feud started, is Aerostar is beating Super Fly. Aerostar made TV and got the new Air Force, Super Fly was off on the island of forgotten luchadors with Uro Rocker. That doesn’t seem a certainty though. (Either way, one of these guys will be on Lucha Underground masked after they lose their mask here. They’re different universes and it goes both ways – no real influence from that show on this one yet.) Not thrilled about Hamburguesa being a second, since that means the match will have to stop for Nino to get in his spots. Overall though, Super Fly and Aerostar got semimain billing on a six match card which should give them plenty of time. This is the night for them their mark.

If we know anything about Psycho Circus feuds, it’s that they go on forever. This will be the fourth time these two teams face off but surely not the last. A title change makes sense if they’re going to keep this going, but there may be other considerations (how many titles do they want to change hands on one show?) at play here.

Three way tag match is going to be the spot fest of the night, even if it’d be a little bit better if Pentagon had been adopted by a more spectacular stable. (Where were you, Anarquia?) The Perros del Mal team appear here to allow the tecnico to tecnico title change without forcing the two teams to battle each other Myzteziz & Fenix have been treated as the new hot idea and figure to win to continue that.

It’ll be a lot easier to have an opinion on the women’s tag match once we finally find out who this new person is. They’re being booked to be a important person right away; Taya vs ??? is surely the next title match if all goes right.

Dinastia gets very rare chance to defend his title in a singles match on a high profile show. Actually, that’s not rare, that’s a first time ever: AAA’s never done a singles title match in the (brief) history of this title on a major show. Mini Charly’s looked like a good opponent for him and this should just be a good exhibition for the champ. There’s no obvious reason to change the title.

There’s no taping announced past this date. AAA wouldn’t need to tape until early January, but that’s when Lucha Underground needs to tape. AAA could tape the weekend prior (01/10) to Lucha Underground’s resumption (01/17) but might choose to get ahead of things by taping late in Decemeber as usual. The Best Ofs all may or may not be happening too. This is fluid.

CMLL has their end of year show on 12/05, AAA has their show on 12/07, and everyone starts to take a bit of a winter’s nap on 12/08.

11/17 AAA TV Results (Leon)

AAA TV (MON) 11/17/2014 Domo de la Feria, Leon, Guanajuato [AAA]
1) Ludxor & Venum b Apache & Carta Brava Jr.
Two man Spanish Fly on Apache.
2) Dinastía & Mini Drago b Mini Murder Clown & Mini Psycho Clown
Dinastia beat Murder Clown. A Dinastia fan ran in to celebrate with him – but then turned on Dinastia and pulled off his mask to reveal himself as Mini Charly Manson. Hijo del Tirantes, who was evil on this show, helped out.
3) Demon Rocker, Joe Lider, Taya Valkyrie b Bengala, Drago, Faby Apache
Joe Lider beat Faby Apache with a piledriver.
4) Pentagón Jr. & Súper Fly b Aerostar & Australian Suicide
Pentagon Jr. was announced as a new member of Perros del Mal. Super Fly beat Aerostar with a powerbomb, then challenged Aerostar to a mask match.
5) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown DQ Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
Cibernetico pulled of Psycho’s mask for the DQ. Cibernetico challenged for a trios title match, but was interrupted by Konnan (with Lider & Pentagon as lackeys.) Konnan demanded the Hell Brothers join the Sociedad by Guerra de Titanes or else.
6) Robbie E & Zema Ion b Fénix & Myzteziz and Angélico & Jack Evans
Robbie E & Zema Ion are from TNA (but not in thru TNA.) Lider & Pentagon ran in and helped Ion & E beat Angelico. Lider & Pentagon demanded a tag title match vs Angelico & Jack. So did Myzteziz & Fenix. They accepted both.
7) el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Texano Jr. b El Mesías & El Patrón Alberto
Alberto bled and had the match won with his armbar on Texano but Perro hit referee Piero with a chair. Konnan brought out Tirantes, who watched as Texano snuck in a foul on Alberto and counted the pin.

Air Date: 11/22 & 11/29

If Alberto isn’t going to get the win in SLP, he might as well not get the win anywhere until Guerra de Titanes, so the screwjob loss makes since here. It is like the tenth different AAA feud where Tirantes helps the rudo win every single time until he just can’t/doesn’t until the end.

Zema & Robbie get the pin on the tag team champs, and everyone but them gets tag team title shots? Maybe it’s just assumed and they didn’t have to ask? Maybe they’re just out of Mexico by then, but it looks weird. That three way tag would be really good if Daga didn’t get hurt.

People should’ve been recruiting Pentagon Jr. from day 1, but AAA hasn’t made it clear why fans should care about a “La Sociedad -> Perros del Mal” move means anything. AAA even pointed out how little difference the names mean when they had Lider & Pentagon (definite Perros del Mal) and Konnan (sometimes Perros del Mal?) speaking on behalf of La Sociedad. They’re just t-shirts they’re not even selling.

It seems way too soon for the Hell Brothers to be tecnicos fighting against the Sociedad – there’s stuff with Cibernetico/La Parka and Cibernetico/Demon that they’ve set up and not done anything with yet – but maybe it’ll head in another direction. Guerra de Titanes has tended to have a Big Angle at it to end the year, maybe this is the start to that.

working Guerra de Titanes lineup

  • El Patron Alberto vs Texano Jr. (c) [AAA HEAVY]
  • Super Fly vs Aerostar, mask vs mask
  • Hell Brothers vs Psycho Circus (c) [AAA TRIOS]
  • Myzteziz & Fenix vs Joe Lider & Pentagon Jr. vs Angelico & Jack Evans (c) [AAA TAG] (maybe with the TNA guys?)
  • Mini Charly Manson vs Dinastia (c) [AAA MINI]

That looks like a Night of Champions card, only missing Cruiserweight, Reina de Reinas and Mixed Tag matches. Pentagon’s busy so probably not the latter, but there’s a mystery tecnica debuting on the next set of lineups who could be set up as a challenger. Fantasma is off TV until the 30th and had a title match on the last show, so he may just be pulled into a “everyone who doesn’t have anything to do” tag match. They’ve got a pretty solid lineup as it is.

Next taping is a week from Friday (11/28) in DF.

11/30 AAA TV Lineup (Tuxtla Guiterrez)

AAA TV (SUN) 11/30/2014 Explanada del Parque Bicentenario, Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas
1) Mini Drago, Octagoncito, Pasion Kristal vs Mamba, Mini Murder Clown, Mini Murder Clown
2) ? & Australian Suicide vs Dark Cuervo & Sexy Star
3) Aerostar vs Súper Fly
4) Angélico & Jack Evans vs Hijo del Fantasma & Zorro
5) Blue Demon Jr., El Elegido, El Mesías vs Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
6) Fénix & Myzteziz vs Joe Lider & Pentagón Jr.

Air Date: 12/20 & 12/27?

Maybe a free show? The local government is a sponsor, and the previous taping here was a free show.

That main event is one Daga knee injury from being very good.

Elegido & Cuervo make their first TV appearances since the middle of summer. It’s going to snow tomorrow where I’m at, middle of summer was a long time ago. Both are probably going to end up looking at the lights. Interesting to see the Hell Brothers fight anyone besides the Psycho Circus here.

I feel like I follow AAA as close as anyone and I feel like I have no idea what’s going on with Zorro on any level. I hope he can keep up with the tag champs.

Aerostar goes from no singles matches to singles matches all the time. This should be set up for one more.

Mystery woman in the segunda is surely the same one as in DF a couple days before, and she’s probably getting off to a very good start.

Rare to see two Mini Clowns and not Mini Psycho Clown.

Next taping is 12/07 Zapopan, unless they add another taping!

11/28 AAA TV Lineup (DF)

AAA TV (FRI) 11/28/2014 Gimnasio Olímpico Juan de la Barrera, Ciudad de México, Distrito Federal
1) ? & Faby Apache vs Sexy Star & Taya Valkyrie
2) Aerostar & Dinastía vs Mini Charly Manson & Súper Fly
3) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
4) Fénix & Myzteziz vs Pentagón Jr. & Zema Ion
5) El Patrón Alberto vs Texano Jr. [street]

Air Date: 12/06 and 12/13. There’s only five matches, but I still expect it to be a two taping show. Either a match will be added or there just won’t be much new wrestling on one of these shows.

That’s not the dates we had before, but the previously announced Apizaco taping is no longer on AAA’s website schedule. They must’ve decided they had too much TV. (This is at least the third TV taping which has been advertised and then canceled.) This will put Guerra de Titanes on the air before/after Chrismas and mean they’re likely to air three weeks of Best of Material as usual.

More directly, that means the only two tapings left prior to Guerra de Titanes are the show in Leon and this one. It’s still four weeks of TV (and Heroes Inmortales, who’s purpose was to be two more weeks of build to this show), but it’s another quick turnaround. The Aerostar Fan Club mentioned Aerostar/Super Fly might be officially announced in a GdT mask match tonight; that doesn’t seem to have happened, but that sort of match announcement prior to seeing on TV seems likely given how little TV they have to work with.

Main event is a street fight right before the title match. AAA’s directly said Texano won at Heroes Inmortales because he didn’t have enough credibility, so I’d expect Texano to keep winning – especially in a match which allows a unlimited interference.

Today’s Wrestling Observer says the “idea” is for Fenix & Myzteziz & a TBD to form an a trio (an AAA Super Sky Team, more or less.) Like all AAA ideas, it might or might not happen but it would explain them teaming up again here. The WON also confirms Ion is coming to Mexico on his own and talked his way into a good AAA spot. If TNA falls apart, maybe Tigre Uno can talk him back into a better spot than he left.

Hell Brothers and Psycho Circus are matched up for the third straight taping. It’s probably going to be a fourth and a title match in Zapopan for Guerra de Titanes.

Aerostar & Super Fly are matched up again and Suicide and Pentagon are not, which may tell us something about what’s going down. Dinastia and Charly being on opposite sides might also signal the mini championship match.

No clues on the mystery woman. Ivellise coming in from Lucha Underground makes some sense. Konnan hyped signing “the best women’s wrestler in the world” on a recent MLW radio show, so maybe that’s whoever it would be. (There may also be people in the match who feel they are the best in the world.)

Next taping is 12/07 in Zapopan for Guerra de Titanes. Note the first half of this show will air only 1 day before the show. If anything’s going to happen to sell tickets, it ought to happen on 11/17 in Leon. And we’ve got no more AAA taping news until then.

That’s enough for one night. I’m going to save the allegations of systematic racism (elsewhere, not in AAA) for tomorrow.

11/17 AAA TV Lineup (Leon)

AAA TV (MON) 11/17/2014 Domo de la Feria, Leon, Guanajuato
1) ? & ?? vs ??? & ????
2) Dinastía & Mini Drago vs Mini Murder Clown & Mini Psycho Clown
3) Bengala, Drago, Faby Apache vs Demon Rocker, Joe Lider, Taya Valkyrie
4) Aerostar & Australian Suicide vs Pentagón Jr. & Súper Fly
5) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
6) Fénix & Myzteziz vs Angélico & Jack Evans and Robbie E & Zema Ion
7) El Mesías & El Patrón Alberto vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Texano Jr.

Air Date: 11/22 and 11/29 – this appears to be a two show taping, which is a mild surprise given how many tapings they’ve got lined up in a short time.

A couple rematches from Heroes Inmortales, including the main event. It seems to me that if you just had to beat Alberto quickly to build up suspense for Guerra de Titanes, it would’ve been just as easy to do it in Leon as it would’ve been in SLP where it wouldn’t have be as damaging to Alberto. AAA did what they did, so now I’m confused why they’d bother doing the match again. Texano beating Alberto or Alberto beating Texano seems counter productive (both ought to be protected from now until the 7th.) Maybe something with Mesias and Perro?

Semimain has the tag champs in Jack & Angelico. It’s listed as non-title

Robbie E & Zema Ion (going five years and one name change between AAA appearances) are in from TNA but likely not booked thru TNA. TNA wrestlers are free until January to book themselves wherever they want as long as they’re not broadcast in the US, and AAA fits that. AAA had previously said they were done working with TNA after Jarrett had left, so that’s another reason to believe the wrestlers worked this out on their own. (In more positive promotional alliance news, this week’s WON mentioned AAA is talking to Wrestle-1 about working together.)

The last foreign tag team to come in to face Jack & Angelico got multiple vignettes (mostly on the website), had one match, and were never spoken about again. Zema Ion’s own previous appearance – as Shiima Xion – seemed to be cut shorter than it was intended to be. It seems like decent odds he and current Amazing Race participant Robbie E will be around a little longer this time – with another taping on five days later, it’s probably worth keeping them around a few more days to get two shows out of the flights.

The Myzteziz & Fenix team follows up on Myzteziz praising Fenix after the Copa Pena tournament. AAA seems to want to use Myzteziz to get over their younger guys – this may be the start as Fenix as La Sombra.

Psycho Circus versus the Hell Brothers should led into a trios title match. It’s tougher to pinpoint exactly when these matches will happen; AAA will need a main event for Guerra de Titanes, but they’re just as likely to do any important undercard matches on the 11/28 show in DF as on the official year end show. It’s the power of Mexico City (and a way of freeing up some of these guys for other roles on the second show.)

Fourth match on the top combines two of the ongoing midcard mask feuds from this year. We’ve been kind of expecting one or the other or both to have their mask match at the end of the year. Maybe we’ll have a better idea of which one, or perhaps this is a setup to a relevos suicidas where no one will know which one is happening until it does. This match itself should be pretty good.

Faby & Taya continue to feud (rematch at Guerra de Titanes?) Joe and Taya being around early means they’ll be around the main event too. Openers mini match should be fun. Dark match figures to be Bobby Lee Jr. special (he’s seems to always be on the Leon shows as a deal with the commission.)

Next taping is 11/22. Maybe we’ll get that one in five days?

10/12 AAA TV Results (San Luis Potosi) – Heroes Inmortales

AAA TV (SUN) 10/12/2014 Domo San Luis, San Luis Potosi, San Luis Potosí
1) Dinastía, Faby Apache, Niño Hamburguesa, Pimpinela Escarlatab Eterno, Mamba, Mini Abismo Negro, Taya Valkyrie
Hamburger splash on Abismo.
2) Hijo del Fantasma © b Angélico, Jack Evans, Joe Lider,Bengala, Aerostar, Súper Fly, Steve Pain [AAA CRUISER]
Aerostar was hurt taking bad fall in the match. Hijo del Fantasma’s second defense

4) Myzteziz b La Parka, Blue Demon Jr., Australian Suicide, Zorro,Pentagón Jr., Fénix, Villano IV [Copa Antonio Pena,lumberjack]
worked as a royal rumble match, with Pentagon and Suicide starting, followed by Fenix, Zorro, Villano IV (replacing Daga), Myzteziz, La Parka, and Demon last. No one went out until every went in. Suicide, Fenix, Parka, Zorro (Parka costing him the match), Villano & Demon draw, and Pentagon fell to a La Mistica.
5) el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Texano Jr. b El Mesías & El Patrón Alberto
Mesias got Texano in an armbar, Tirantes broke it up, then Tirantes turned the other way as Texano fouled Alberto and beat him in his home town. Albert challenged for a title shot anyway and Texano accepted for Guerra de Titanes.

Air Date: 11/08 and 11/15 (probably a two weeks taping even though only five matches.)

Looked to be a sell out and loud. They gave out Thunderstix to the crowd, and it seems like the crowd might have actually used them. There’s a clip of the crowd chanting for Alberto from early in the main event.

Everything went to form until that main event, where it sure looks like Alberto lost just to surprise people. Even with tonight’s outcome, no one believes Texano is going to (or should) win when he faces Alberto for the title. The way Texano’s been booked for the last 12 months isn’t going to be fixed by one more screwy win. It’s way too late for him and a bucket full of El Hijo del Santo matches prove Mexican fans will pay for obvious outcomes if they care about the protagonist. You just got to keep the protagonist special. Giving Alberto a win in front of a full crowd there to see him in front of a crowd going nuts for him would sure make him look special and footage you could use for every Alberto video package from now until the end of time. Instead, a loss that’ll mean nothing in three months.

Alberto is getting the same shot he would’ve gotten if he had won, so why not just have him win? Or, if you had to have Texano get a win, Mesias is right there. There were alternate options which don’t take the shine off your new top star.

This isn’t going to kill Alberto by any means. It may hurt him only a tiny bit. But why hurt him at all?

The good thing is they did make the Guerra de Titanes main event because look at those airs dates, it’s going to be about Guerra de Titanes time by the time this show airs. They’ve got five weeks of TV in the can, which feels crazy.

Aerostar got back on Twitter after the match and said he was okay. It seemed like they were setting up a Super Fly/Aerostar challenge there, which may have not happened because of the fall (or maybe Super Fly caused the fall.)

Next taping is 11/07 in Tampico. They may just have one more taping after that before Guerra de Titanes.
