07/03 AAA TV Results (Tampico)

AAA TV (FRI) 07/03/2015 Expotampico, Tampico, Tamaulipas [AAA]
2) Goya Kong, Niño Hamburguesa, Octagoncito b Carta Brava Jr., Mini Abismo Negro, Taya Valkyrie
Goya Kong was the surprise luchadora. Hamburugesa Splash on Carta & Abismo
3) Dark Scoria, Dark Cuervo, Máscara Año 2000 Jr. b Bengala, Drago, El Elegido
Scoria beat Elegido.
4) Hijo del Fantasma & Joe Lider b Angélico & Jack Evans
Cuervno & Escoria cost Angelico & Jack the mach.
5) Cibernético & El Mesías b Monsther Clown & Murder Clown and Electroshock & Hijo de Pirata Morgan
Cibernetico replaced Texano Jr., and his team got the win when Mesias beat Pirata with a top rope splash.
6) Averno b Myzteziz
seconds were Argenis & Cibernetico. Mytzeziz told Averno prior to the match he’d have his respect if he could beat him cleanly. Averno told Myztzeziz and could unmake him. Averno did win and did break free of La Mistica, but won with a foul (and not cleanly.)
7) Blue Demon Jr. & Villano IV b Brian Cage & El Patrón Alberto
Villano IV & Blue Demon won when Cage turned on Alberto and put him thru a table.

Air Date: 07/25 and 08/01 – so, just to be clear, this includes the show airing 8 days before TripleMania.

There are no matches announced for TripleMania, but we can make the same educated guesses on those matches as we could back when this card was announced. Something is happening with Cage & Alberto, something is happening with Avenro/Myzteziz and something is still happening with Angelico/Jack Evans and Scoria/Cuervo – we just don’t know what’s exactly happening with any of it, still.

Money was thrown in for Averno/Myzteziz.

I thought Steve Pain was at this taping, but it turns out Cuervo & Scoria with short hair are kind of tough to recognize.

Next taping is next Friday in Puebla. It could be the last taping until TripleMania, though I suspect we’ll know more after this week’s TV show.

06/28 AAA TV Results (Orizaba)

AAA TV (SUN) 06/28/2015 Plaza de Toros La Concordia, Orizaba, Veracruz [AAA]
1) Australian Suicide & Goya Kong b Machine Rocker & Taya Valkyrie
Psycho Clown introduced Goya Kong, his sister, as the newest member of AAA and the mystery luchadora in this match. Suicide beat Machine. Villano IV interrupted the celebration to declare his family was better than the Alvarado family.
2) Carta Brava Jr. & Súper Fly b Aerostar & Niño Hamburguesa
Aerostar replaced Argenis on 06/17. Super Fly beat Aerostar with a double powerbomb.
3) Dinastía © b Mini Psycho Clown [AAA MINI]
Dinastia’s sixth defense (fourth official, two off TV) was said to be a techinical match. Dinastia won with the Tulancingo Special.
4) Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Joe Lider b Angélico, Drago, Jack Evans
Drago & Joe Lider replaced Fenix & Pentagon Jr. on 06/17. La Secta got a revenge win. Tables were used.
5) Electroshock & Hijo de Pirata Morgan b Monsther Clown & Murder Clown and Averno & Chessman
Originally a Holocausto vs Psycho Circus trios match, Chessman added to the show and Averno moved down a match on 06/17. Electroshock & Pirata beat Monster for the win.
6) Psycho Clown & Rey Mysterio Jr. b El Mesías & Hijo del Fantasma
Rey Mysterio took the place of a surprise wrestler. Psycho Clown was moved up from the semifinal to replace Myzteziz and Texano Jr. replaced Averno. Fantasma replaced Texano, who had an arm injury and blamed it on Psycho Clown. Rey beat Mesias, has not lost since returning.

Air Date: 07/11 & 07/18

Outside of Goya jumping, this was a pretty quiet taping. No TripleMania announcement, no real hint at any new Triplemania matches. A lot of existing feuds are brought up, but this seems more like a placekeeping show than one of the last few before the biggest show of the year. (Maybe it’s not.)

Texano’s injury was left pretty vague. It would seem like it had to occur in the last couple weeks, since they wouldn’t have moved him into the main event during the shuffle if they knew he was hurt, but it’s not clear when. Texano hasn’t been recorded as wrestling since June 1st and was strangely left off the Verano de Escandalo card (though he did do a run-in), so it could also be something he’s been working thru for a while. Not sure when he’ll be back, though it seems doubtful he’ll have any big role on TripleMania. The rudo side is really weak.

I wonder if Goya is Mascara 2000 Jr.’s mystery admirer?

This was the first of three straight weekends of taping. They’re taping again on Friday in Tampico.

06/27 AAA TV Lineup (Orizaba) – Rey Mysterio added to changed card

AAA TV (SAT) 06/27/2015 Plaza de Toros La Concordia, Orizaba, Veracruz
1) ? & Australian Suicide vs Machine Rocker & Taya Valkyrie
2) Aerostar & Niño Hamburguesa vs Carta Brava Jr. & Súper Fly
Aerostar replaced Argenis on 06/17
3) Dinastía © vs Mini Psycho Clown [AAA MINI]
4) Angélico, Drago, Jack Evans vs Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Joe Lider
Drago & Joe Lider replaced Fenix & Pentagon Jr. on 06/17.
5) Monsther Clown & Murder Clown vs Electroshock & Hijo de Pirata Morgan and Averno & Chessman
Originally a Holocausto vs Psycho Circus trios match, Chessman added to the show and Averno moved down a match on 06/17.
6) Psycho Clown & Rey Mysterio Jr. vs El Mesías & Texano Jr.
Rey Mysterio took the place of a surprise wrestler. Psycho Clown was moved up from the semifinal to replace Myzteziz and Texano Jr. replaced Averno.

Air Date: 07/11 & 07/18

AAA posted a new lineup for this show today, which probably means they’ll be hyping Mysterio’s appearance on this week’s TV. AAA usually doesn’t announce card changes – with Verano de Escandalo, they surely knew Kronos was out in advance but didn’t update – but adding Rey Mysterio is a supposed to sell some tickets and all the other changes just showed up with him.

Mysterio becoming the mystery guy in the main event is the biggest news, but lots of other shuffling going on. Fenix and Myzteziz ended Verano de Escandalo hurt and are both off the show now. Not sure if that’s the same issue with Pentagon and Argenis. The latter could just be adding Aerostar to face Super Fly again.

Chessman essentially gets added to the card to replace Kronos, with the semifinal trios match turned into a trios tag match. Electro & Pirata were already booked as only a tag team on the next two shows (which also have multiteam tag matches.)

Fenix and Pentagon are now not booked on any AAA TV announced taping, and that covers the next six weeks of shows. That might not all be injury, they may be missing the 07/10 show because they’re going on the trip to London, but it suggets there won’t be big plans for them going into TripleMania. (Whenever that is.)

AAA also reposted the 07/10 lineup, but there’s no changes to that lineup. The mystery person on 07/10 show is still listed as a mystery person, but likely is Laredo Kid.

06/14 AAA TV Results (Monterey) – Verano de Escandalo 2015

cool finish, little bit of stutter because of the stream…

AAA TV (SUN) 06/14/2015 Arena Monterrey, Monterrey, Nuevo León [AAA, MT, SuperLuchas]
Verano de Escandalo, 2015
1) Machine Rocker, Mamba, Mini Psycho Clown, Taya Valkyrie b Dinastía, El Elegido, Faby Apache, Pimpinela Escarlata
Machine Rocker replaced Parka Negra and now has a white fright wig on top of his mask. Dinastia and Mini Psycho Clown fought a lot (and well) leading into their title match. Rudos surprising won with Machine Rocker submitted Elegido to a crab as Mamba also submitted Faby.
2) Drago b Fénix, Laredo Kid, Daga, Steve Pain, Aerostar, Bengala, Súper Nova, Súper Fly, Hijo del Fantasma [Alas de Oro]
Laredo Kid was the surprise luchador (announced in the match graphic.) Steve Pain also returned (again) to AAA. A nearly non stop high spots match that start with four dives at the same time and hardly slowed down there. There was no specific story to the match, just big spots. Fenix suffered a shoulder injury taking a suplex out of the ring (hitting the apron on the way down – the spot either went wrong or was a really bad idea), tried to continue, and collapsed in pain after a top rope double stomp. He was stretchered out, crying in pain. Match was derailed a little bit while Fenix was taken away, but picked up speed again near the finish. Drago beat Aerostar with his flipping DDT and Dragon’s Tail cradle, similar to the finish of their Best of Five series. Drago was given a giant golden wings trophy.
3) Averno, Chessman, Cibernético b Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown © and Electroshock, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Parka Negra [AAA TRIOS]
Parka Negra was moved from the opener to take Kronos’ place – it’s unclear if he’s meant to be part of the trio before. A chaotic match, sometimes good, sometimes not so good, but about what was expected by this trio. Single fall to a win, ending when Cibernetico fouled Psycho Clown (mostly missed the camera) and Chessman speared Psycho Clown for the win and title change. Psycho Circus fall on their 9th defense, after 28 months as champions. Hellbrothers are 5th champions. All three teams fought on and off after the match. In breaks during the post-match brawling, Monsther demanded a rematch for the trios titles and Psycho Clown challenged Chessman for the Latin American title
4) Angélico & Jack Evans b Dark Cuervo & Dark Scoria [cage, hair]
Rules were the first team out would escape, and the entire losing team would lose all their hair. Everyone bled in a bit more of a brawl than the usual Angelico/Jack match. A very good match, second match on the show. Jack had chances to escape, but appeared not to want to leave Angelico behind. All four fought on the top of the cage at the end, two on opposite sides of the ring. Scoria was fouled and crotched on top of the cage by Angelico, and Cuervo was shoved off and fell thru two tables (though mostly just cracked his head on one – both he and Scoria had bad looking head impacts during the match.) Cuervo & Scoria got most of their hair cut off in the ring, then asked for handshakes. Angelico & Jack accepted, and La Secta turned on them and left. (They appeared to get the rest cut off in the back.) Angelico & Jack won a match with a lots of big spots. Both Cuervo & Scoria lost their hair.
5) El Patrón Alberto © DQ Brian Cage [AAA HEAVY]
Blue Demon Jr. and Texano Jr. were seconds and Tirantes was referee. Match very quickly turned into the rudos (Tirantes included) trying to cheat the title away from Alberto and failing repeatedly. Demon was ejected a few minutes in for counting Texano’s interference. Tirantes would fast count for Cage and refuse to count for Alberto. Texano eventually summon Pentagon & Fantasma for support, and they were both thrashed by Alberto. Alberto finally took out Tirantes with his head kick and put Cage in the armbar, who tapped with no referee. Cage escaped, give Alberto a foul and F5’ed him on the belt. Piero, who had turned up on stage too soon and tried to turn invisible, then ran down to make the count and did count 3 for Cage. He immediately signaled a DQ win for Alberto. Rudos stomped Alberto and buried him under an American flag. In a post show interview with the media, Alberto claimed he told AAA he wanted a cage match with hair on the line with Brian Cage, or he’d quit the company.
6) La Parka, Myzteziz, Rey Mysterio Jr. b El Mesías, Johnny Mundo, Pentagón Jr.
Rey entered with a Terminator and had a Terminator themed outcome. A lot of La Parka comedy (including some well timed stuff when a spot got botched.) Myzteziz suffered a right leg injury but finished the match. Rey Mysterio Jr. won with a leaping off the middle rope Canadian Destroyer on Pentagon Jr. Mundo and Mysterio had a very brief staredown post match.

Air Date: 06/27 and 07/04

Alas de Oro is worth the price of the show alone, unless you’re completely uninterested in the style. It’s better than last year’s TripleMania 10 way and the 10 way on Lucha Underground, even with Fenix’s injury (and he wasn’t the only one who was probably hurt.) There were so many things going on that it was hard to keep track of them, but it was about as good as you’re going to get with that style. Both Steve Pain and Laredo Kid shined in their debut. (Laredo’s name was actually listed on the prematch graphic, but it was up and down too quick to notice.) If anything, there was so much going on that it’s hard to remember few individual spots, just the overall feeling of amazement.

Fenix’s injury is said to be an injured clavicle which will keep him out weeks, according to SLP promotion Juniors. They’re promoting a show on 07/01, so Fenix is at least out that long (though he wasn’t listed on the last card they posted.) The spot where he got hurt on made no sense and I have no idea what was supposed to happen.

The cage match is also worth going out of your way to see. Like their TV match this week, it’s a brawl where Angelico & Jack work in a bit of their normal moves. They built in good drama even though it never quite seemed like La Secta were going to win.

The opener and the trios title match were about what they expected. Machine Rocker took a spectacular bump in the opener and it was surprising to see him to beat Elegido (especially in Monterrey.) They did a lot of stuff in the trios title match, some of which went well. It definitely would’ve been more coherent as a 3v3 match, but the crowd seemed to enjoy it. Parka Negra as a Holocausto member seemed to work well enough for them to keep doing it, but it wasn’t sure if that was the plan.

This could be a pivotal moment for the Psycho Circus. Psycho Clown challenging Chessman for the Latin American championship, if it actually happens, makes a lot of sense: it explains why it was important not to have Demon just win the title back, and it gives the title a chance to be the secondary title for the guys who aren’t in the world title picture but need wins to be ready to be part of it later on. (If Alberto is just going to be defending the heavyweight title about 3 times a year against a foreign menace, there’s a big gap to be filled.) Psycho Clown’s plateaued and even dropped down a little bit after TripleMania because of the influx of new names and being relegated back into the trios title picture, but a feud with Chessman might give him a spotlight again.

The title match was aggravating, but I think AAA would say it was intended to be aggravating. Alberto did a post show interview where Alberto declared he’ll leave AAA unless they give him Cage in a cage with hair (and maybe the title) on the line. That was their big angle for TripleMania. It just felt like the usual AAA Tiranates overbooking during the show. It left me not wanting not to see the match again, and just generally disappointing.  There’s definitely reason to something to build a rematch, but they did so many different interference/Tirantes spots and it was just kind of absurd. Alberto was a superman who should’ve won nine times over, Tirantes was the guy getting all the heat, and Cage could’ve been Parka Negra or Machine Rocker for all he meant to the match – only he’s the guy they’re expecting the fans pay to see beat. There’s no real reason for Alberto to want a rematch, he won the match and nearly won it cleanly despite tremendous handicaps, but it’s happening because it’s happening.

Alberto also really needed to do that rematch promo during the show, so the whole thing wouldn’t have ended as flat. This was a quick moving AAA show, finishing under three hours, but the crowd seemed to lose energy after the title match and maybe that could’ve brought them back.

(The Tirantes heel ref stuff needs to go away, but it’s needed to go away for years and AAA’s just stubborn on that point. Can they at least change how they do it? Match would’ve been drastically improved by just having Piero start the match to start, and then Tirantes taking his place as the replacement referee when Piero gets taken out. AAA always does it where Tirantes cheats for the rudo, gets taken out and Piero is the second ref coming in. Just like how AAA always has the rudos do a billion cheap shots, none actually work, and then the finish is 10 seconds after someone’s finally thought to do a foul. Maybe try mixing it up a bit.)

The main event didn’t help. Rey’s entrance and gear was great, but the match itself felt like it had the intensity of a house show main event. It was going to have a hard time following the previous matches even if it was good, and it was a match with a lot of La Parka comedy instead. They did the briefest of teases of Mundo versus Rey after the match, but the Lucha World Cup also accomplished that. The idea probably was to get fans used to seeing Mundo by having him here, but he was so inconsequential to the match that it diminished the specialness of seeing him if you already knew who he was.

There’s a behind the scenes article on Rey’s Terminator mask on enuhito’s blog.

There was no mention of TripleMania in front of the crowd. No date, no location, no video just teasing the concept. It’s possible the show may have been meant to end with something like that (and it does read as if they expect to announce it this week.) It ended with a “poor signal” message instead. The feed itself declined in quality during the last hour of the show and the main event was bordering on unwatchable at times. The VOD for these shows has been simply a recording of the live broadcast on previous iPPV; hopefully they put up a cleaner version this time.

The recently elected governor of Nuevo Leon was at the show. They announced his presence while setting up the cage.

Next taping is 06/27 in Orizaba, with the Mini Psycho Clown/Dinastia title match. If it’s like their match here, it’ll be great. If it’s like the Heavyweight title match (and the last Dinastia title match was similarly filled with interference), then it’ll be a little disappointing.

2015 Verano de Escandalo live results

Follow along on @luchablog for more details.

AAA TV (SUN) 06/14/2015 Arena Monterrey, Monterrey, Nuevo León [AAA]
Verano de Escandalo, 2015
1) Machine Rocker, Mamba, Mini Psycho Clown, Taya Valkyrie b Dinastía, El Elegido, Faby Apache, Pimpinela Escarlata
Machine Rocker replaced Parka Negra and beat Elegido with a crab (!) at the same time as Mamba submitted Faby.
2) Drago b Fénix, Laredo Kid, Daga, Steve Pain, Aerostar, Bengala, Súper Nova, Súper Fly, Hijo del Fantasma [Alas de Oro]
Laredo Kid was the surprise luchador. Steve Pain also returned (again) to AAA. An inside match that was a single pinfall to finish. Fenix suffered a shoulder injury, tryied to continue, and was eventually stretchered away crying in pain. Drago defeated Aerostar with the flipping DDT and Dragon’s Tail cradle, similar to the Lucha Underground Match 5 ending with those two.
3) Averno, Chessman, Cibernético b Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown © and Electroshock, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Parka Negra [AAA TRIOS]
Parka Negra was the Holocausto’s mystery partner. Psycho Circus fall on ninth defense. A chaotic 3 way match, with chairs and tables. A Cibernetico foul and a Chessman spear on Psycho Clown got the Hell Brothers the win and a title. Monster challenged for a rematch, and Psycho Clown wanted the Latin American. The Hellbrothers left the Psycho Circus laying, taking Murder’s mask and declaring they’d win any title match.
4) Angélico & Jack Evans b Dark Cuervo & Dark Scoria [cage, hair]
Angelico & Jack won a match with a lots of big spots. Both Cuervo & Scoria lost their hair.
5) El Patrón Alberto © DQ Brian Cage [AAA HEAVY]
second defense. Demon & Texano were seconds, with Demon getting ejected early. There was all sorts of interference, with Tirantes completely siding with Cage (except when he forgot and called a pin normal.) An absurd amount of interfeference. Tirantes got knocked down, Cage gave Alberto a foul and a F5 on the belt, Piero counted 3, and then called a a DQ win for Alberto. Rudos beat up Alberto after.
6) La Parka, Myzteziz, Rey Mysterio Jr. b El Mesías, Johnny Mundo, Pentagón Jr.
Rey had Terminator themed gear. Rey Mysterio beat Pentagon Jr. with a leaping off the middle rope Canadian Destroyer. Myzteziz seemed to suffer a leg injury.

07/10 AAA TV Lineup (Puebla)

AAA TV (FRI) 07/10/2015 Gimnasio Miguel Hidalgo, Puebla, Puebla
1) Dinastía, Mini Drago, Pimpinela Escarlata vs Mamba, Mini Charly Manson, Mini Psycho Clown
2) ? & Niño Hamburguesa vs Carta Brava & Taya Valkyrie
3) ? & Argenis vs Daga & Steve Pain
4) Monsther Clown & Murder Clown vs Electroshock & Hijo de Pirata Morgan and Australian Suicide & Jack Evans and Dark Cuervo & Dark Scoria
5) Aerostar, Drago, Myzteziz vs Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
6) El Patrón Alberto vs Brian Cage vs El Mesías [bull terrier]

Air Date: 08/08 & 08/15

This is unexpected: they only just mentioned the existence of this show on AAA TV this week, and there’s a card out a month ahead of time. This is 3 tapings after the one this weekend (Verano de Escandalo) and may not air until after TripleMania. It also looks like it could be building up TripleMania. It’s hard to say, what with this not airing for two months and all.

Also unexpected is how often Alberto’s working AAA TV tapings. After missing out on Rey de Reyes, he’s going to work 9 of the next 11, facing Cage just about every time out. Mesias is added to the mix here. Mesias putting his hair up soon would make sense if the belief is he’ll be switching to Mil Muertes in Mexico sometime soon, but who knows. This is a post of me throwing up my hands and figuring it’ll all make more sense later.

Semimain would be really good if Holocausto can trap Cibernetico backstage again.

Fourth match combines two feuds (Circus/Holocausto and Jack/Anglieco stand-in Suicide vs Secta) unexpectedly.

Is this Steve Pain’s 3rd return? I’ve lost track. Perhaps the mystery person here is whoever is teaming with Myzteziz back in Orizaba on the 27th? The mystery luchador in the second match is surely the same person who keeps getting listed as a mystery person in the other shows.

This seems like it ought to be the last taping in July, since they’d be so far ahead this point – but It’d be odd to go 3+ weeks without a taping. Maybe one more late in the month that’s sort of lame duck? On the other hand, the next card to be announced might just be TripleMania. Either way, I’d expect it’ll be a while.

07/03 AAA TV Lineup (Tampico)

AAA TV (FRI) 07/03/2015 Expotampico, Tampico, Tamaulipas
1) El Guapo, El Patriarca, El Perro vs Arsenal, Baby Lover, Disturbio
Dark match. Referee will be local Paco la Guavara.
2) ?, Niño Hamburguesa, Octagoncito vs Carta Brava Jr., Mini Abismo Negro, Taya Valkyrie
3) Bengala, Drago, El Elegido vs Dark Scoria, Dark Scoria, Máscara Año 2000 Jr.
4) Angélico & Jack Evans vs Hijo del Fantasma & Joe Lider
5) Monsther Clown & Murder Clown vs El Mesías & Texano Jr. and Electroshock & Hijo de Pirata Morgan [lumberjack]
6) Myzteziz vs Averno
seconds will be Argenis & Cibernetico
7) Brian Cage & El Patrón Alberto vs Blue Demon Jr. & Villano IV

Air Date: 07/25 & 08/01

Those dates pushed back one week with World Cup airing. We still don’t have a TripleMania date (?!?!) but those air dates are getting to the point where AAA will probably have to announce a main event by the time the shows airs. This card has some nominees for that spot.

AAA’s tried hard with Cage, but he still doesn’t seem over enough to main event TripleMania, but Alberto getting the big win might work in a year where there’s no better match. Villano IV is a name from a couple eras ago and only wrestles a handful of times, but maybe a Blue Demon Jr. mask match might work in a year where there’s no better match. Averno versus Myzteziz in an apuesta match would’ve easily filled a big Mexico City building at one point in time, that time is past, but maybe it might work in a year where there’s no better match. Or maybe multiple ones of those or none of ’em.

There’s some other strange matches on this show which might be preludes to other stuff. Joe Lider makes a rare TV 2015 appearance against Angelico & Jack, who probably should be going after the tag titles after their feud wiht La Secta. The three way tag match is very random, but AAA’s teased a Psycho Clown/Holocausto title match all year and that might fit on TripleMania. The third match might resolve the strange Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. storyline. The segunda should include which ever luchadora is showing up the week prior.

There’s got to be one or two more tapings between now and TripleMania.

06/27 AAA TV Lineup (Orizaba)

AAA TV (SAT) 06/27/2015 Plaza de Toros La Concordia, Orizaba, Veracruz
1) ? & Australian Suicide vs Machine Rocker & Taya Valkyrie
2) Argenis & Niño Hamburguesa vs Carta Brava Jr. & Súper Fly
3) Dinastía © vs Mini Psycho Clown [AAA MINI]
sixth defense
4) Angélico, Fénix, Jack Evans vs Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Pentagón Jr.
5) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs ?, Electroshock, Hijo de Pirata Morgan
6) ? & Myzteziz vs Averno & El Mesías

Air Date: 07/4 & 07/11

It’s the missing taping! Everything makes a little more sense now. It does confirm Verano is airing quickly after it takes place.

What’s not confirmed is half these matches. The semifinal is the easiest to decipher: AAA keeps listing luchador surprise in what should be Kronos’ spot. It’s hard to believe that’s an miscommunication if it’s happening for weeks. Maybe it’s just a name change (can they just use “Bane”?) but whatever is up should be clear by Verano de Escandalo.

The mystery spot in the opener is for a luchadora. The only two tecnica luchadoras who’ve been used this year are Keira. who’s seems unlikely to brought to Veracruz, and Faby Apache, who would be listed here if she was here. Expect something random, with the returns of Jennifer Blake or Ivelisse (if she’s healthy by this point) even possible.

The mystery spot in the main event is by far the most interesting. It’s a spot that requires a big name at a point in time that requires a big name. (Still no idea what the TripleMania match will be.) It’s someone to work across Mesias, since Myzteziz and Averno should be locked back up. I dunno.

The matches we do know look generally pretty good. Mini Psycho Clown and Dinastia have been really good in their lead up matches; if they get 8-10 minutes without a ton of interference, they’re going to have a great match. And the fourth match looks like it could be one of the best AAA trios matches of the year. This should be an interesting taping, both from matches and from storyline progression.

Next taping will be 07/03 in Tampico.

06/01 AAA TV Results (Nuevo Laredo)

AAA TV (MON) 06/01/2015 Polyforum La Fe, Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas[AAA]
1) Hijo de Pirata Morgan, La Hiedra, Parka Negra, Taya Valkyrie b El Elegido, Faby Apache, Perseus, Pimpinela Escarlata PERSEUS ELEGIDO PIMPINELA FABY APACHE VS LA HIEDRA (posted by PERSEUS LUCHADOR)
Peresus and La Hiedra, children of Sangre Chicana and local regulars, were added to the match (but aren’t in the official results)
2) Dark Cuervo & Dark Scoria b Angélico & Jack Evans
Laredo Kid & Mocho Cota Jr. seem to not have wrestled, though the AAA official results still list them. La Secta challenged Angelico & Jack to make the Verano de Escandalo cage match a hair match. Gueros del Cielo accepted.
3) El Mesías, Electroshock, Pentagón Jr. b Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown
Cibernetico appeared after the match to declare it would be his team – not Psycho Circus or Holocausto – to win the trios titles.
4) Averno, Chessman, Cibernético b Blue Demon Jr., La Parka, Myzteziz
5) Brian Cage & Texano Jr. b El Patrón Alberto & Fénix
La Sociedad helped Cage beat Alberto, who left bloody.

Air Date: 06/13 and maybe 06/20?

Adding the hair stipulation to the cage match explains why it’s been featured so heavily on TV (and why Cuervo & Scoria were chosen for this role.) There are some audiences where the crowd would loudly be rooting against the Jack & Angelico team, but I think they’ll be okay in Monterrey.

Otherwise, place keeping show with all the rudos winning.

It looks like there’s something up with the TV schedule. As it is now, Verano de Escandalo would air 7 days later on TV, which is quicker than usually go. It looks like they’re taping Friday July 3rd in Tampico, but that date would mean they have to tape again before that show unless they make up an extra week there. Maybe these two tapings get combined over 3 weeks? Maybe the Lucha World Cup airs again as part of Sin Limite to take up a week?

6) El Patrón Alberto & La Parka DQ Cibernético & El Mesías
Cage interfered to attack Alberto for the DQ, and repeated his title challenge.

Air Date: 06/06 – quick turnaround. Opener (and dark match) may end up being internet exclusives.

It rained during the show. It doesn’t look wet during the first match and the newspaper recap mentions it stopped right before the main event, but the mat looks moist. Hope that didn’t hurt the matches much, but it might have.

After his loss, Electroshock (on behalf of Holocausto) took credit for being the ones who prevented Cibernetico from showing up for the trios title match at Verano de Escandalo. It’s nothing they’ve especially built towards and doesn’t completely make sense, but any explanation is a good explanation.

Not much else new – it’s the cage match and the Cage match which continue to get the focus going into Verano de Escandalo.

They’ve got a show tonight Piedras Negras, and then back taping again on Monday.
