11/20 AAA TV Results (Ciudad Juárez)

AAA
AAA

AAA TV (SUN) 11/20/2016 Gimnasio Municipal Jose Neri Santos, Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua [AAA]
1) El Apache, Lady Shani, Mini Psycho Clown b Big Mami, Niño Hamburguesa, Octagoncito
2) Pimpinela Escarlata b Mamba [bull terrier]
3) Averno & Chessman COR Faby Apache & Mary Apache
Tirantes helped the OGTs like usual, this time dragging Averno back in the ring after he’d been knocked out on the floor and counting out Mary. Faby challenged Tirantes to a match, and Tirantes accepted.
4) Daga, Joe Lider, Pentagón Jr. b Dave The Clown, Monsther Clown, Murder Clown
The Traidor Clowns attacked the Perros after the loss, and fought security as well.
5) Pagano b Dr. Wagner Jr., Psycho Clown
Unsurprisingly, the rudos teamed up to beat Psycho, with the hometown luchador winning. Wagner took Psycho’s mask afterwards.
6) Garza Jr., La Parka, Texano Jr. b Brian Cage, Johnny Mundo, Marty Casaus
La Parka was honored for reaching 20 years of wrestling at the start of the show. The tecnicos gave him a cake, and he smashed his own face into it. Marty was the surprise luchador. Mundo beat Garza after Taya got involved. The Clowns helped attacked the tecnicos post match. Los Perros ran the rudos off post match, with Pentagon again challenging Mundo.

Air Date: It would normally 12/03 & 12/10 – except they’re not taping again until 12/17. So something else is probably airing 12/03 and this is more 12/10 & 12/17.

Felt like just a filler show going in and it looks that way; two more weeks of TV to stretch out to whenever Guerra de Titanes is happening. The one real development is the Hijo del Tirantes/Faby Apache match. It’s not at where they thought they were going, but it makes sense – Faby and Tirantes have been feuding for six months or the entire time Faby has been a tecnica, whatever way you want to think about it. Hijo del Tirantes was a wrestler when he was starting out and still wrestles from time to time in Xalapa: he’s wrestling for a title in a couple weeks. He also wrestled way back on the 2011 Rey de Reyes. It’s another match I’m not all that interested in but makes some sense to do given how much time they’ve spent on him.

Nothing else seems to have happens on this show. Dave the Clown was group in the with the rudo allies, but it might not mean anything – if you could look back at group photos of the (many many) past rudo factions, there’d extra guys in the photos one taping just because they were booked for that taping who wouldn’t be around in the next. Dave might stick around if they ever go with the idea of adding him to Monster & Murder full time, but it’s tough tell.

Not sure how it happened, but Marty bleed a decent about after getting cut in the face in the main event.

Daga & Cage seemed to be building their own match on Twitter, which seems more interesting than most anything that happened on the show.

Next taping is 12/17 Chilpancingo.

12/17 AAA TV Lineup (Chilpancingo)

AAA

AAA TV (SAT) 12/17/2016 Plaza de Toros Belisario Arteaga, Chilpancingo, Guerrero
1) Big Mami, Dinastía, Máscara de Bronce vs Lady Shani, Mamba, Mini Psycho Clown
2) Argenis, Lanzeloth, Niño Hamburguesa vs Carta Brava Jr., Dave The Clown, Soul Rocker
3) Angélico, Bengala, Garza Jr. vs Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Parka Negra, Súper Fly
4) Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Zorro vs Averno, Chessman, Ricky Marvin
5) Aerostar & Drago © vs Monsther Clown & Murder Clown and Daga & Joe Lider [AAA TAG]
2nd defense
6) Hijo del Fantasma, Psycho Clown, Texano Jr. vs Dr. Wagner Jr., El Mesías, Pagano

Air Date: 12/24 and 12/31?  That seems unlikely. Sometime early January, maybe.

I found this on a Chilpancingo lucha libre Facebook page.

Matches 4 and 6 keep the two big programs (OGT/Apaches/Xinetez and Foreigners/Traitors vs AAA/Perros) going. Fantasma has done interviews talking about his pal Texano becoming a tecnico but insisting he’s still a rudo. Scheduling seems to different on that point (and the cruiserweight title match was really wrestled like it was three tecnicos.)

I’m concerned about match 5; there’s decent reasoning that maybe those titles should be given to people in the feud to give something to do. Plus, Super Fly’s lurking around to give cost htem the titles (and doesn’t have a partner to challenge for the tag titles again.) The Clowns or Daga/Lider would be a downgrade in champions but that’s not a big consideration

There probably should be some progress to (or from?) Guerra de Titanes on this card, but otherwise this just seems like marking time. Angelico, short one tag partner, has dropped into the meaningless bottom half of this card, which just appears whichever other guys who are around in matches. Mamba is a better opponent for Mascara de Bronce, but a better card has both of them in the second match and Nino & Dave moved to the opener. (Two matches with heavy people spots seems a worse idea than one match with two heavy people.) I haven’t counted, but I’d guess Soul Rocker has appeared on the TV show more this year than the period where they actually did something with that trio. Mini Psycho Clown is wrestling as a tecnico on some spot shows, which appears to be a lack of bodies and not a turn based on this lineup.

Unless we’re getting a surprise announcement tomorrow about Guerra de Titanes taking place in early December, this is the last remaining taping of the year.

11/04 AAA TV Results (Aguascalientes)

 

AAA
AAA

AAA TV (FRI) 11/04/2016 Gimnasio Hermanos Carreon, Aguascalientes, Aguascalientes [AAA]
1) Dinastía, Octagoncito, Venum b Mini Histeria, Mini Psycho Clown, Mocho Cota Jr.
2) El Apache, Faby Apache, Mary Apache DQ Mamba, Súper Fly, Taya
OGT ran in for the DQ, attacking the Apaches. They beat up Gran Apache after.
3) Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Parka Negra, Pirata Morgan b Argenis, Niño Hamburguesa, Pimpinela Escarlata
Pirata Sr. stole the pin from his son.
4) Averno, Chessman, Ricky Marvin DQ Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Zorro © [AAA TRIOS]
Faby fouled Chessman, which allowed Tirantes to hand the titles to his new friends by DQ. Xinetez fell on their 5th defense (3rd on TV)
5) Pentagón Jr. b Johnny Mundo
Daga & Pentagon earlier demanded this switch from a tag match to Pentagon & Mundo one on one. (Cage just happened to be absent.) Pentagon won and demanded a title rematch.
6) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Pagano b La Parka, Psycho Clown, Texano Jr.
Mundo & Taya helped attacked the tecnicos post match, with the Perros del Mal running them off.

Air Date: 11/19 & 11/26. Thinking about it now, I bet last week’s TV was expanded to an extra week because they would’ve run out before the Juarez taping on the 20th. Attendance looked strong for this show.

No explanation of what the deal is with Cage. He was on Twitter last night, so he probably was still in the US. He’s working a show in Brownsville today with Rey Mysterio, not the LU shows. It did allow Pentagon to finally get some revenge on Mundo (though that could’ve been the plan in the tag match anyway.) Everyone taping seems to ends with the two alliances facing off.

Title changes on a DQ are lame, title changes on a DQ where the champion isn’t even involved in the finish are terrible. AAA’s setting up the trios title match at Guerra de Titanes but, the way the Xinetez are just bystanders in this thing, they might not be part of it.

That’s about it. The Piratas may do a match, but it seems to be getting a slow burn. Venum beat Mocho Cota in the opener so the minis title match seems dropped for the moment.

Next taping is 11/20 in Ciudad Juarez. Taping after that should be Guerra de Titanes; we still don’t know when or where, but maybe we will know in a few hours?

10/28 AAA TV Results (Tlalnepantla)

AAA
AAA

AAA TV (FRI) 10/28/2016 Lienzo Charro de Los Reyes Ixtacala, Tlalnepantla, Estado de México [AAA]
1) El Apache, Faby Apache, Mary Apache COR Mamba, Mocho Cota Jr., Soul Rocker
OGT watched the match from ringside, distracted Faby and Tirantes quickly counted her out.
2) Dave The Clown, Parka Negra, Súper Fly b Aerostar, Máscara De Bronce, Venum
The debuting Mascara de Bronce (Gotita de Plata) was the mystery luchador and Venum did appear. Didn’t help – Super Fly powerbombed Aerostar thru a table as part of his victory.
3) Hijo del Fantasma b Drago, Angélico [AAA CRUISER]
Drago replaced Jack Evans. The tecnicos asked for this to be made a cruiserweight title match. Fantasma agreed. They used elimination rules this time, with Angelico beat Dragon and Fantasma beating Fantasma to keep the title. Sixth defense.
4) Averno, Chessman, Ricky Marvin b Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Zorro
Tirantes helped OGT win and officially is part of the group. Zorro offered them a title match.
5) Monsther Clown & Murder Clown b Daga & Joe Lider and Damián 666 & Pagano
Changed from a three way trios to a three way tag (Psycho/Wagner moved to the main event, Pentagon doubled booked in Tijuana.) Rudos just all teamed up and beat up the Perros. The traitor clowns got the win.
6) Psycho Clown NC Dr. Wagner Jr.
no finish when Pagano, Murder, Monster and Damian ran in, and Aerostar, Angelico, Daga and Lider made the save. Daga spoke out against the rudos. The TripleMania challenges were brought up again.

Air Date: a good question! This has grown from a one taping show to maybe a two taping one. It’ll definitely start 11/05 and it may be 11/12 (which would bump everything else a week back.)

I mentioned false advertising with Fenix on TripleMania. AAA appears to have done the same here, listing Pentagon in the main event and not telling people he was going elsewhere even as they were sending him to Pentagon. That is no bueno but they don’t seem to be changing it.

As a maybe make up, AAA did Psycho/Wagner – but then didn’t do a finish. This show also had two evil referee finishes and essentially a 4 on 2 handicap match. That can’t have been too fun to watch. In WWE, they might counterbalance this by doing a dark match 5v5 match with everyone in the main event, and Psycho beating Damian or whatever after a few minutes. That’s not how people see wrestling in Mexico, but it’d make for a more enjoyable show. All I can think of is, even before seeing a moment of the card, there’s only two matches which have a chance of being watchable and the rest of looks likes like stuff I’ll want to endure for as little time as possible. This needed a better balance between getting heat on the heels and having actual watchable TV.

We know Gotita de Plata is Mascara de Bronce because Gotita posted a photo of Mascara de Bronce on his Instagram, wrote about it being a new chapter in his career, and then attempted to change his Instagram name to Mascara de Bronce. (As of this writing, he has it as “Mascara de Bromce AAA”; it’s hard out there for a flying goat.) It’s nice to see him get a shot and I like what we can see of the costume, but the name is a little too generic for my tastes.

Aerostar versus Super Fly seems to be on once again. I downplayed the chances of the career vs career matches they were hyping, and you’ll end up right most of the time if you’re cynical about AAA midcard feuds, but it does come off as if they’re going somewhere with this. It should be good.

Random title defenses on AAA shows are good. The next title defense won’t be random; we already knew there was a trios title match between the Xinetez and OGT next Friday in Aguascalientes. Everything’s going OGT’s way – sometimes it means they’re about to stumble, but I’m more confident in them this time.

I bet I’m going to get so annoyed when Tirantes counts out Faby even though Mary and/or Apache are standing in the ring, but it’s an evil referee so it doesn’t have to make any sense. AAA leaning back heavily into the evil referee thing is annoying as a viewer. It’s seems solely part of the the OGT/Apaches/Xinetes storyline (which seems separate from everything else, probably because it’s being produced by those involved), so Tirantes will be normal in the rest of them, but adding the Xinetez now means it’s happening on a third of the card.

10/14 AAA TV Results (Tlahuelilpan)

AAA
AAA

AAA TV (FRI) 10/14/2016 Plaza de Toros Jorge Gutierrez, Tlahuelilpan, Hidalgo [AAA]
1) Mini Histeria & Mini Psycho Clown b Dinastía & Octagoncito
Psycho Clown defeated Dinastia and demanded a title match.
2) Faby Apache & Mary Apache b La Hiedra & Mamba
Post match, Hijo del Tirantes distracted the Apaches, who were attacked from behind by OGT.
3) Dizzy, Parka Negra, Súper Fly b Argenis, Australian Suicide, Bengala
Australian Suicide (first match unmasked, keeping the name) replaced Jack Evans. Dizzy replaced Apache (also confirming Dizzy is not Parka Negra at the moment!) Super Fly beat Argenis.
4) Averno, Chessman, Ricky Marvin b Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Zorro
OGT beat the trios champs in a non-title match via foul. They want a title match.
5) Brian Cage & El Mesías b Garza Jr. & Hijo del Fantasma
6) La Parka & Texano Jr. b Dr. Wagner Jr., Pagano, Pentagón Jr.
Psycho Clown wanted to wrestle, but doctors/security stopped him, and this was a handicap match without him. He ran in and helped La Parka win anyway. Cage & Mesias ran in to help Wagner & Pagano beat up the tecnicos and Pentagon. Garza & Fantasma made the save, with Pentagon siding with the tecnicos/Mexicans.

Air Date: 10/22 & 10/29

AAA says this was a sell out. It looked full. It looked a bit small, but a full bullring is still a full bullring.

La Parka wins the main event and Jack Evans isn’t anywhere to be found. There might be a message there. Given the lack of people in AAA right now (Dizzy!), and the frequency of people being gone from AAA and then turning back up, hopefully this is a temporary situation and everything gets worked out.

Australian Suicide being on the show makes sense as replacement, but it also points out how strange it is that he’s not scheduled for any TV taping in this cycle after being unmasked. He’s probably in Jack’s place on the 28th too, but just not sure why he wasn’t originally booked if he’s still around.

My running theory has been a big Mexico vs Evil People match at Guerra de Titanes, and I think it’s possible I may be guessing it into existence. It sure seems like the main event is heading that way; they’re only a Clown or a Mundo away from a big 5v5 match if they’d like to do one.

We knew the trios title match was coming – it’s already announced for 11/04 – but the minis title feud is new. It’s not mentioned in the recap, but is in the live results. Maybe Guerra de Titanes for that, and maybe the three way trios title match too (though Apache is oddly missing.)

This is Dizzy’s first known match on a TV taping in 3 years (though the last one didn’t air – it did have Argenis & Super Fly too!)

Next taping is two Fridays away.

AAA

AAA TV (FRI) 11/04/2016 Gimnasio Hermanos Carreon, Aguascalientes, Aguascalientes
1) Dinastía, Octagoncito, Venum vs Mini Histeria, Mini Psycho Clown, Mocho Cota Jr.
2) El Apache, Faby Apache, Mary Apache vs Mamba, Súper Fly, Taya
3) Argenis, Niño Hamburguesa, Pimpinela Escarlata vs Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Parka Negra, Pirata Morgan
4) Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Zorro © vs Averno, Chessman, Ricky Marvin [AAA TRIOS]
5th defense (3rd on TV)
5) Daga & Pentagón Jr. vs Brian Cage & Johnny Mundo
6) La Parka, Psycho Clown, Texano Jr. vs Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Pagano

Air Date: 11/12 & 11/19

This was the missing lineup in the run of shows. The complete taping cycle from Heroes Inmortales to Guerra de Titanes:

10/14 Tlahuelilpan
10/28 Tlalnepantla
11/04 Aguascalientes (right there above)
11/20 Ciudad Juarez

The TV tapings catch up with the Heroes Inmortales angles in the main event; that’s the only time Pagano is scheduled to team with Monster & Murder on TV at the moment.

Pentagon may not be facing Mundo at Juarez, but he is Aguascalientes. That might be the best match of this cycle.

Trios title match should be interesting too, though expect the Apaches to get involved until such time as they don’t. The undercard are just matches to have matches. Taya’s match will be her first on TV since before TripleMania (though she’ll be cornering Mundo on the other shows.) Pirata Sr. does get booked against after Heroes Inmortales, though it doesn’t look like they’re doing a Pirata versus Pirata feud, or really much with either guy. On the spot shows, Hijo del Pirata Morgan has been replacing Taurus, which is a slight move up for him.

The open could be very good. Venum might still be around! Or he could’ve quit and come back like Pirata, who knows.

No Australian Suicide. No Alberto. I feel sadder about one of those. Alberto was under the impression his next show would be an AAA show, but there’s no sign of one. I wonder if he knew/knows he was pulled off the Juarez show?

This run of tapings start tomorrow. The next date we’re looking for is Guerra de Titanes.

11/20 AAA TV Lineup (Ciudad Juárez)

AAA TV (SUN) 11/20/2016 Gimnasio Municipal Jose Neri Santos, Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua
1) Big Mami, Niño Hamburguesa, Octagoncito vs El Apache, Lady Shani, Mini Psycho Clown
2) Pimpinela Escarlata vs Mamba [bull terrier]
3) Faby Apache & Mary Apache vs Averno & Chessman
4) Daga, Joe Lider, Pentagón Jr. vs Dave The Clown, Monsther Clown, Murder Clown
5) Dr. Wagner Jr. vs Psycho Clown, Pagano
6) Garza Jr., La Parka, Texano Jr. vs ?, Brian Cage, Johnny Mundo

Air Date: 11/26 & 12/03

This is the third upcoming taping announced, following this Friday’s show in Tlahuelilpan and the show on 10/28 in Tlalnepantla. The lineup for the 11/04 Aguascalientes taping hasn’t been announced; Ciudad Juarez must be putting their tickets on sale sooner.

The notable name is the one not here: Alberto el Patron was advertised for this show before Heroes Inmortales. It’s possible he was removed from the card after he didn’t show in Monterrey. Alberto probably woudl’ve been part of the same match he was meant to be in at Hereos Inmortales, which is instead a three way.

Interestingly, there’s a second version of the card floating around, being put out in Juarez. In that one, Pentagon is in the main event and Garza Jr. is facing the Clowns. My guess is AAA sent the lineup out to the local promoter, then changed their mind and decided they’d rather continue the Garza feud with Mundo than resume the Pentagon one. That’s wouldn’t be a a popular decision, but one probably based on Garza being more available than Pentagon.

Maybe it’ll be moot and Pentagon will get involved by the end. The only thing I can figure out for a Guerra de Titanes main event is maybe the big blowoff Mexico/US (in a cage, since they haven’t done one of those) and Pentagon and more Team Trump people might get involved in that. On the other hand, AAA doesn’t really have anything for their main events beyond that feud, so they may be in no hurry to blow it off.

 

On this card, Dave the Clown has joined the ex-Psycho Clowns for a dreadful trio. Daga is just an extra person in matches in this cycle, and Australian Suicide is not booked outside the Japan show. AAA doesn’t seem to be following up on their mask match in any noticeable way.

Tercera has the TripleMania rematch. We can pencil in some variation of that for Guerra de Titanes. Faby being dropped from the Japan show (La Hiedra was announced as a replacement on Tuesday) and being kept out of the match at Heroes Inmortales suggested she’s dealing with an issue, but she’s still booked on this show.

Mamba and Pimpinela both is out of nowhere (there’s no angle for a match, Pimpi’s not on the October TV tapings) and makes sense (the two regularly booked exoticos have feuded forever.) The opener is a match.

This is not a strong show on match quality, to say the least. There’s not a match on the show that sounds like it’ll be good. Hopefully Aguascalientes is better.

10/02 AAA TV Results (Monterrey)

AAA
AAA

AAA TV (SUN) 10/02/2016 Arena Monterrey, Monterrey, Nuevo León [AAA]
Heroes Inmortales X
1) Aerostar & Drago © b Laredo Kid & Súper Fly and Damián 666 & Nicho el Millionario and Monsther Clown & Murder Clown [AAA TAG, Ladder]
first defense
2) Pimpinela Escarlata b Zorro, El Elegido, Niño Hamburguesa, Bengala, Lady Shani, Dark Scoria, Dark Cuervo, Octagoncito, Big Mami, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan [Copa Antonio Pena]
Zorro, Elegido, Pimpinela, and Nino started. Hijo del Pirata Morgan and Pirata Morgan both returned to AAA as surprised. Hijo del Pirata threw out his father. Pimpinela snuck in a foul on Zorro to win.
3) Averno, Chessman, Ricky Marvin b El Apache, Faby Apache, Mary Apache
Faby was apparently locked in the dressing room to start the match, ran out to join the math late, and Averno faked a foul from her to draw the DQ.

4) El Mesías, Hernandez, Marty Casaus b Hijo del Fantasma, La Parka, Texano Jr.
Marty (as Casuas, not Martinez) & Hernandez were surprise Team Trump partners. La Parka appears to have taken the loss. A tribute to Antonio Pena was held after this match.
5) Dr. Wagner Jr. b Psycho Clown, Pagano
Alberto did not appear, so this was changed to a three way. Psycho Clown was outnumbered 2 to 1. Murder & Monster ran out to help out, but instead betrayed Psycho Clown and allied with Pagano, apparently ending the Psycho Circus. Wagner beat Psycho Clown.
6) Daga b Australian Suicide [mask, hair, street fight]
Argenis & Joe Lider were seconds. Daga defeated Suicide, who was announced as Broderick Shepherd, from Melbourne, Australia.
7) Garza Jr. b Johnny Mundo © [AAA LA]
Taya seconded Johnny Mundo, TV host Ernesto Chavana seconded Garza. Moved to the main event. Taya snuck in a foul, which Garza blamed on a Chavana distraction. First defense.

Air Date: 10/08 & 10/15

This did not air on iPPV. When the biggest story from the show is the guy who didn’t appear, it’s probably okay we’re not paying to see it. (For what it’s worth: crowd seemed decent though not full and some areas were obviously taped off, there were light Fraude chants for the no-show but less than you’d expect, and it says something not positive about Alberto’s actual star power if the people weren’t that upset about him being off the show.)

AAA’s statement said they were in contact with Alberto as recently as that morning about him coming to the show. Alberto still hasn’t said anything. The story I’ve been told, which I have not been able to confirm yet, is that Alberto got into legal problems Friday night, and may have been unable to leave the US as a result. That fits with Alberto disappearing from social media since Friday.

Murder & Monster Clown turning seems shortsided. The Psycho Circus is still going to be booked together as a tecnicos on most house shows, and are listed together on the 10/28 taping. Konnan mentioned there’s been thought to do this split for two years, but I kinda wonder if they pulled the trigger simply to give the match some big development to distract from Alberto. It doesn’t make a lot of sense to heat back up Psycho/Pagano on the surface when Psycho should be moving onto Wagner.

There’s not a lot of notes on the rest. The Garza/Chavana thing seems like an angle to play locally (maybe on TV, maybe on the next Llaves y Canados event), but probably doesn’t factor in AAA much. Daga & Suicide sounds like the best match on the show, but there’s a lack of clips from it – there’s more floating around from the opener (which always was a ladder match and I just blanked on) than the latter matches.

You’d have to be a diehard lucha fan to know Hijo del Pirata Morgan fan to know he quit AAA. As it was, the only thing he really did was go to Arena San Juan instead of the beach. Arena San Juan has it’s charms and that was a fun four way match and maybe he got his father back in (for the first time in AAA in seven years) by walking out for a little bit, but the beach is nice. Hijo del Pirata Morgan actually threw his father out of the ring in the battle royal, with a tease of a feud that probably wouldn’t help either guy all that much.

The battle royales are essentially replacements for the Relevos AAA matches, but I did not expect them to be such dedicated homages to have the same women and minis included and have Pimpinela win in the end. I feel like I’ve been watching Pimpinela taking victory laps for her career for the entire time I’ve been watching lucha libre, and I wish they would’ve set up something new to come out of it, but relentlessly honoring people whose best days were (at least) a decade ago seems ingrained in the fabric of lucha libre. Can’t take the rest without that.

Interesting that Marty the Moth is specifically listed as “Marty Casaus”, not his Lucha Underground name. I’d think AAA would have free reign to use the LU characters – maybe it’s an oversight, but maybe it’s a story.

Next taping is 10/14 in Tlalnepantla, then on 10/28 in Tlahuelilpan.

10/28 AAA TV Lineup (Tlalnepantla)

AAA

AAA

AAA (FRI) 10/28/2016 Lienzo Charro de Los Reyes Ixtacala, Tlalnepantla, Estado de México
1) El Apache, Faby Apache, Mary Apache vs Mamba, Mocho Cota Jr., Soul Rocker
2) ?, Aerostar, Venum vs Dave The Clown, Parka Negra, Súper Fly
3) Hijo del Fantasma vs Jack Evans, Angélico
4) Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Zorro vs Averno, Chessman, Ricky Marvin
5) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Daga, Joe Lider, Pentagón Jr. and Damián 666, Dr. Wagner Jr., Pagano

Air Date: 11/05 – this only has five matches, so it’s probably the one show taping we were looking at. Even with it not being as long as usual, this means AAA’s announced the next seven weeks of TV (TripleMania part 3, Hard Rock, Heroes Inmoratles Part 1, Heroes Inmortales Part 2, Tlahuelilpan 1, Tlahuelilpan 2, and Tlalnepantla).

The main event is listed as an extreme match, but when do those guys not have an extreme match?

Xinetez/OGT rematch on this show, so that’s a program – and the Apaches are around. That three way trios match seems more likely.

Third match is not a cruiserweight title match, so it’s possibly setting up one. The good news for Jack is he could just sit on the floor and watch this match, and then he’s finally escaped doing a three way match. (There really should be something on the line, or Jack & Angelico are going to look like idiot tecnico friends for fighting each other instead of just agreeing that one of them will beat Fantasma.)

Venum is still around! Possible. That other spot would normally go to Ludxor, but he’s not in AAA and it doesn’t sound like he’d be able to wrestle at this point anyway. There’s long been talk about moving Dinastia up to the main division, and maybe this might be it, though Dave the Clown on the other side will make that harder.

It’s September, but AAA’s getting down to the last few tapings to announce. There’s probably a taping the first week of November. A Ciudad Juarez newspaper announced a taping on 11/20 (but that was month ago and so it always subject to change.) Guerra de Titanes is probably a couple weeks after that, and they could bring back the late December taping if everything goes as scheduled.

10/14 AAA TV Lineup (Tlahuelilpan)

AAA

AAA

AAA TV (FRI) 10/14/2016 Plaza de Toros Jorge Gutierrez, Tlahuelilpan, Hidalgo
1) Dinastía & Octagoncito vs Mini Histeria & Mini Psycho Clown
2) Faby Apache & Mary Apache vs La Hiedra & Mamba
3) Argenis, Bengala, Jack Evans vs Apache, Parka Negra, Súper Fly
4) Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Zorro vs Averno, Chessman, Ricky Marvin
5) Garza Jr. & Hijo del Fantasma vs Brian Cage & El Mesías
6) La Parka, Psycho Clown, Texano Jr. vs Dr. Wagner Jr., Pagano, Pentagón Jr.

Air Date: 10/22 & 10/29

Always a bit of a surprise for AAA to early announce a taping which takes places after a PPV. There’s nothing here that completely spoils anything from Heroes Inmortales, though we can take some guesses.

Dr. Wagner Jr. is probably a rudo and I should fix that. Pentagon and Fantasma, I’m less sure about. The top two matches move Texano away from Team Trump, with Garza possibly continuing instead.

Los Xinetez haven’t been around much this summer, and now are facing the rudo trio that’s risen up in their place. The Apaches are all on this card, so that issue could still be ongoing – maybe the ultimate destination is a three way trios title match?

Third match looks like the best one on the show. Always nice to see Dinastia.
