04/03 AAA TV Lineup (Xalapa)

AAA TV (FRI) 04/03/2015 Deportivo Colon, Xalapa, Veracruz
1) Gotita de Plata, Niño Hamburguesa, Pimpinela Escarlata vs Belial, Carta Brava Jr., El Apache
2) Australian Suicide & Súper Nova vs Hijo de Pirata Morgan & Súper Fly
3) Bengala & Drago vs Daga & Joe Lider
4) Fénix & Psycho Clown vs Hijo del Fantasma & Pentagón Jr.
5) Aerostar, Blue Demon Jr., La Parka vs Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
6) El Patrón Alberto & Myzteziz vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Texano Jr.

Air Date: ??? let’s say 04/11 & 04/18 but it could shift a couple weeks later.

AAA hasn’t officially announced this card, but it appears to be a TV taping. I’m not 100% sure about the lineup: this card was posted last night on Facebook, but a newspaper article promoting this same show has a different and incomplete lineup, one that I’m pretty sure is incorrect (and maybe just a previous year’s Xalapa show.) I tend to think the poster is the correct.

Main event is a possible TripleMania teaser. Texano/Alberto (title) and Myzteziz/Perro (mask/hair) seem like the best guesses for big TripleMania matches at the moment.

Everything else generally stays in place. Hell Brothers continue to feud with Parka & Demon. Aerostar being in the semifinal is a change, and at least teases the possibility he wins Rey de Reyes. It seems more likely than if he was still in the segunda facing Super Fly. Fenix continues to feud with Fantasma. There appeared to be a Bengala title tag title challenge program at one point, that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, but he keeps fighting the Perros. Opening two matches look good but don’t continue anything. It’s now odd every time Pirata doesn’t team with his new partners.

For a show after Rey de Reyes, this doesn’t tell us much about Rey de Reyes. Tomorrow!

02/27 AAA TV Results (Queretaro) – Cage defeats Patron

AAA TV (FRI) 02/27/2015 Auditorio General José María Arteaga, Querétaro, Querétaro [AAA]
1) Gotita de Plata, Ludxor, Venum b Carta Brava Jr., Mamba, Pegasus
Debut of Pegasus (from AULL). Ludxor & Venum gave him the double Spanish Fly for the win. Mamba attacked Pegasus for losing but the tecnicos saved him.
2) Daga & Súper Fly b Argenis & Australian Suicide
Daga submitted Argenis as Super Fly superbombed Suicide.
3) Texano Jr. b Murder Clown, Machine Rocker, Bengala [Rey de Reyes, semifinal]
Texano Jr. beat Machine Rocker, Bengala and Murder Clown in that order. Texano Jr. joins Aerostar, Mesias and the winner from Ecatepec in the final
4) Drago & Súper Nova b Hijo de Pirata Morgan & Joe Lider
Super Nova was Drago’s surprise partner. Tecnicos beat Lider. Recap notes Nova & Drago were a great team.
5) Angélico, Jack Evans, La Parka b Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
Earlier in the show, the Hell Brothers appeared to announce they were officially united with La Sociedad. Chessman also issued an open challenge for his Latin American title, calling out Demon specifically. La Parka surprised Chessman with a small package. Daga and Joe Lider in and helped put Parka thru a table post match.
6) Brian Cage, Hijo del Fantasma, Pentagón Jr. b El Patrón Alberto, Fénix, Myzteziz
Cage beat Alberto with a moonsault. Alberto said he’d have his revenge.

Air Date: 03/07 & 03/14

The Rey de Reyes announced card so far, for a show that’s two weeks away.

  • Fenix vs Hijo del Fantasma (c) for the AAA Cruiserweight Championship
  • Aerostar vs Mesias vs Psycho Clown vs Texano Jr. in the 2015 Rey de Reyes final

…that’s pretty much it. One taping to go, but they’ve got a press conference on Tuesday so it’d fit to announce the lineup then.

We don’t really know much more for certain for Rey de Reyes, which really surprises me. The build to this show has not been great. AAA’s had one match set up by a rudo just making an open challenge (and may have another), there’s another match set up because it’s the tournament they run every year, and those are the only two matches that are official. If they do Cage/Alberto, and that still seems to be in ‘if’ territory, at least the rudo got a win to set it up. There are definitely matches that could be put together based on the current storylines, and AAA could release a card Tuesday that completely fits with what they’ve been doing, but the build up to that card hasn’t been particularly focused. There was a moment where it appeared to AAA was going to be doing no TV leading up to Rey de Reyes, which would’ve seemed to make a hard sell for that show. They ended up doing quite a bit of it, but the build is not all that much stronger.

By coincidence, or not, Flamita returned to Dragon Gate a few hours after this show (instead of actually being on this show.) Super Nova should be a great addition, if he’s actually full time here.

Second match was said to be excellent. Eager to see how the first match went.

03/06 AAA TV Lineup (DF)

AAA TV (FRI) 03/06/2015 Gimanasio Olimpico Juan de la Barrera
1) Argenis, Dinastía, Niño Hamburguesa vs Carta Brava Jr., Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Mini Psycho Clown
2) Drago & Faby Apache vs Dark Cuervo & Taya Valkyrie
3) Angélico, Australian Suicide, Jack Evans vs Daga, Joe Lider, Súper Fly
4) Blue Demon Jr., El Mesías, La Parka vs Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
5) Fénix, Myzteziz, Psycho Clown vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Hijo del Fantasma, Pentagón Jr.

Air Date: 03/28 – looks like only 1 week with the opener being an internet/UTDN exclusive.

Today starts a very active and newsworthy eight day stretch for Rey de Reyes. This’ll be the last day of that stretch, and it’s kind of just a show. It’s a very ordinary lineup for a return to Mexico City. The main event focus will still be on the Perro/Myzteziz issue and could be a very good match, but there’s nothing that stick out as a sure great match or a big turning point in an issue.

Semimain keeps the Demon/Hell Brother feud alive. It’s basically the same match that aired on TV this week with Mesias in Jack’s place. (That wasn’t a strong TV match.)

The Angelico, Suicide and Jack team is reunited, and are at least one rudo short of having a good match. This again is a good moment to see what Joe Lider is up to, and may play into whatever tag title match is or is not happening at Rey de Reyes. This is a sort of a lame duck card – we’ll know the Rey de Reyes card before this show takes place – but so little is obviously going on that it doesn’t even give away what’s happening in Guadalajara.

Cuervo remembered he had issues with Faby Apache last time we saw him in 2014, so maybe they’ll continue that.

Opener does not feature any random indy guys, kind of disappointing. It’s peculiar that AAA is putting TV time into Hijo del Pirata vignettes and still only use him in the opener.

02/08 AAA TV results (Ecatepec)

AAA TV (SUN) 02/08/2015 Centro Civico Nueva Aragon, Ecatepec, Estado de México [AAA]
1) Arez, Mini Abismo Negro, Mini Psycho Clown b Dinastía, Drastik Boy, Octagoncito
Debut for Draztik Boy. Dinastia beat Arez with a Spanish Fly.
2) Faby Apache & Pimpinela Escarlata b Mamba & Taya Valkyrie
Pimpi beat Mamba with a casita. After the match, Fenix did a promo building up his title match with Fantasma at Rey de Reyes.
3) Australian Suicide & Bengala b Daga & Joe Lider
hardcore match with thumbtacks. Bengala used a piledriver variation to beat Daga.
4) Psycho Clown b ZorroElectroshockDark Cuervo [Rey de Reyes, semifinal]
Hijo del Pirata & his mystery friend were all over this match. Electroshock was DQed for excessive violence with a chair (chairs appear to be legal the rest of the show) and Cuervo was counted out after the Pirata trio beat him up. Psycho beat Zorro with a top rope cracker. Piratas trio beat up both Zorro & Psycho Clown after the match. Psycho joins Aerostar, Mesias and the Queretaro winner in the final.
5) Blue Demon Jr., Jack Evans, La Parka b Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
La Parka beat Cibernetico with a huracanana. Demon declared he’d help the AAA army, while Daga & Zorro assisted the Hell Brothers.
6) Myzteziz DQ el Hijo del Perro Aguayo
usual Perro brawl, ending when he was caught fouling Myzteziz

Air Date: 02/21 and 02/28.

Rey de Reyes is more cloudy that I would’ve thought at this point, though maybe it’ll come together on TV. The one thing I feel sure about is Texano is the fourth Rey de Reyes member, because he and Psycho Clown just can’t shake each other. (The Machine Rocker dream dies, though Machine Rocker getting on TV is still a victory.)

I think they are setting up matches here, there’s just multiple ways they could go with everything. Suicide & Bengala must be getting a tag title shot after all these wins, but no one’s made the direct challenge and it’s always possible other teams can be looped in. Jack & Angelico make sense, but then there was that skit with Angelico, Fenix and Fantasma that teased him getting involved in the Cruiserweight Title. They might have been unable to advance it yet since Angelico was busy with Lucha Underground all weekend.

AAA’s probably doing the big tag match as the main event, but how big and who’s involved is still to be sorted out. Rey de Reyes seems like a smart place to debut the Pirata, Electroshock and ? trio, but they’ve been attacking everyone at this point so there’s no telling who they’ll face.

There’s nearly 3 weeks between tapings, so again some of this will likely shake out on TV even before they hold another match. It’s likely to be a good card with interesting matches, but they haven’t hinted at any match which might be a big draw just yet.

02/27 AAA TV Lineup (Queretaro)

AAA TV (FRI) 02/27/2015 Auditorio General José María Arteaga, Querétaro, Querétaro
1) Gotita de Plata, Ludxor, Venum vs Carta Brava Jr., Mamba, Pegasus
2) Argenis & Australian Suicide vs Daga & Súper Fly
3) Texano Jr. vs Murder Clown, Machine Rocker, Bengala [Rey de Reyes, semifinal]
winner joins Aerostar, Mesias and the winner from Ecatepec in the final
4) ? & Drago vs Hijo de Pirata Morgan & Joe Lider
5) Angélico, Jack Evans, La Parka vs Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
6) El Patrón Alberto, Fénix, Myzteziz vs Brian Cage, Hijo del Fantasma, Pentagón Jr.

Air Date: 03/07 & 03/14

El Patron makes his first appearance of the year on AAA TV and he’s not alone. It seemed inevitable a US wrestler from Lucha Underground would end up showing here, but I would’ve guessed Prince Puma. I guess Cage needs less of an explanation. This is actually not Brian Cage’s first appearance in Mexico; he worked for Todo x el Todo in 2013 as a La Migra member. AAA’s slightly different. Alberto & Cage seem matched up here, since Fenix/Fantasma and Myzteziz/Pentagon are the other rivalries.

The Rey de Reyes bracket now looks like this

rdrblock4

Let’s discount Murder Clown because he’s Murder Clown (and he may have Electroshock/Pirata issues and even Hell Brothers issues.) Bengala seems to be headed to a tag title match so he’s probably not making the final. That leaves Texano and Machine Rocker and that sure looks like a Texano win – except maybe Texano’s in this big tag match main event which hasn’t even been hinted on TV but looks implied by the way things have been booked? Machine Rocker in the final as a rudo to work with Aerostar makes some level of sense. At the same time, there’s probably reasons why Machine Rocker hasn’t been on TV since September (!) and those reasons probably weren’t “we’re going to have him make a surprise run in Rey de Reyes next year!” Plus, this is kind of assuming Zorro’s winning the next block – if Psycho Clown does, than Texano seems almost certain to face his old rival. All I’m saying is there’s a chance, Machine Rocker fans. And at least he is back on TV.

Parka versus Cibernetico continues in the semimain. Angelico & Jack Evans were attacked by the rudos in Toluca so get a chance for revenge here.

Rest of the card is random. Pirata & Lider are both rudos but on different tracks and neither of them seem to involve Drago, who hasn’t been involved in much here. There’s a mystery partner thrown into as well, which probably means something is up but it’s not clear what. Maybe Drago gets a new partner to go after Lider and the tag titles (and Electroshock & Pirata gets thrown in too to make it a four way? I dunno.)

The other 2v2 match is even more random, with four guys who haven’t had much meaningful interaction with each other. It should be good and maybe something will start up with Daga since he’s been pretty frequently on TV this month.

There’s an AULL undercarder named Pegasus (well, sometimes – his name has been spelled 4 different ways.) The Arena Lopez Mateos trainees are anonymous for a big arena that’s so close to Mexico City, usually getting bumped off the card when there’s a major show that’s actually taped. They’ve got a better shot of turning up on IWRG TV for a school vs school cibernetico than anyone taking a handheld of their shows. That Pegasus has been wrestling around the DF area since 2012 and I have no links to videos with him it. The name and position fits with him, though I can’t be sure. There must’ve been one very exciting tryout session recently for all these random names to start filtering in the opening matches.

The last week of this taping will air one day before Rey de Reyes. AAA could go right into that show if they’d like. This weekend’s AAA TV will probably make that clear – if there’s no more tapings announced, that’s the plan. Still, this tournament is also far enough away from the show that AAA might be able to hold off announcing the full Rey de Reyes card until after it takes place.

01/30 AAA TV Results (Toluca)

AAA TV (FRI) 01/30/2015 Gimnasio Agustín Millán, Toluca, Estado de México [AAA]
1) Apache, Belial, Mamba b Gotita de Plata, Niño Hamburguesa, Súper Nova
Debuts for Belial and Super Nova and Gotita’s first match here in a year. Hamburugesa Splash on Belial for the win.
2) Mini Abismo Negro, Mini Charly Manson, Mini Psycho Clown b Mascarita Sagrada, Mini Drago, Octagoncito
Mini Psycho beat Mini Drago with a super powerbomb.
3) Joe Lider, Súper Fly, Taya Valkyrie b Bengala, Drago, Faby Apache
Faby was stretchered out after taking a big powerbomb from Super Fly for the loss.
4) Angélico & Jack Evans b Averno & Chessman
Cibernetico attacked the tecnicos immediately after the victory and the Hell Brothers left them laying.
5) El Mesías b La Parka, Cibernético, Parka Negra [Rey de Reyes, semifinal]
Cibernetico & La Parka got counted out fightning out side, with the Hell Brothers and La Sociedad also helping to get Parka counted out. Mesias beat Parka Negra with his top rope splash to join Aerostar in the finals.
6) Fénix, Myzteziz, Psycho Clown b el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Hijo del Fantasma, Pentagón Jr.
Hijo del Fantasma attempted to beat Fenix with the Thrill of the Hunt, only Fenix escaped and beat him with a piledriver variation. Fenix accepted Fantasma’s open challenge for the cruisereweight belt, and they’ll meet at Rey de Reyes.

Air Date: 02/07 & 02/14, probably

Cibernetico has the worst luck in this tournament – nothing but fouls and countouts. Of slightly more importance, La Sociedad and the Hell Brothers seem to be actively working together this time. Either they made some sort of alliance after all and we haven’t seen it yet or this is just kind of sloppy. Guess we find out when it airs.

Fantasma tried to steal his Evil Twin’s finisher and got beat, truly a lesson for us all. Fenix vs Fantasma means the Reyes del Aire Myzteziz/Fenix team is one and done on major shows, at least for now. It also means Myzteziz is free to be in whatever giant tag match is main eventing the show.

Not a lot of note on this card outside of that truly random opener. I think Super Nova might have been one of the people under the Hombre de Negro mask a couple a years ago, but that’s his first actual match in AAA. He’s seemed good enough to be in a major Mexican promotion for a while, but has found more work outside Mexico for the most part. Belial is the second Indy-strong-ible to show up on an AAA TV taping this year, only missing Impulso. I hope that doesn’t making programming tough for Chilangamask.

Next show is 02/08 in Ecatepec.

02/08 AAA TV Lineup (Ecatepec)

AAA TV (SUN) 02/08/2015 Centro Civico Nueva Aragon, Ecatepec, Estado de México
1) Dinastía, Drastik Boy, Octagoncito vs Arez, Mini Abismo Negro, Mini Psycho Clown
Debut for Drastick Boy.
2) Faby Apache & Pimpinela Escarlata vs Mamba & Taya Valkyrie
3) Australian Suicide & Bengala vs Daga & Joe Lider
4) Psycho Clown vs Zorro, Electroshock, Dark Cuervo [Rey de Reyes, semifinal]
Winner joins Aerostar and the Toluca winner in the final.
5) Blue Demon Jr., Jack Evans, La Parka vs Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
6) Myzteziz vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo

Air Date: 02/21 & 02/28, probably.

This is a Lucha Underground weekend. The only regular on this show is Pimpinela, who’s not been a key part of that show. It does mean Alberto will be conspicuously missing for at least a month; hope they’re taping vignettes in Los Angeles or something. In turn, there’s people getting more shots on TV because of the psuedo-split crew.

Main event is the second Myzteziz/Perro meeting since both have come to AAA. That one was also a regular TV match after a few weeks of TV build up. Feels like it should be a bigger deal – it’s still going to be a big deal and they should have absolutely no problem selling out this building for that main event – but maybe it’s just something you do every six months, and maybe it’s a win Perro needs to get if there’s a thought of doing Perro/Alberto at TripleMania. It’s another data point suggesting the Rey de Reyes will be a big tag match and not a singles match.

As mentioned on the podcast preview of this card, the semimain continues some individual rivalries. La Parka has issues with Cibernetico and fans on social media keep asking when Blue Demon Jr. is going to get his title match against Chessman. Also, Jack and Averno would be a good match.

Psycho Clown seems like the favorite in his Rey de Reyes, right? He might be the favorite to win the whole thing, keeping his momentum from winning at TripleMania last year. Zorro & Cuervo have spent a lot of time on the mythical AAA Fusion brand of late, and Electroshock has suddenly got new life and appears to be setting up a trios match against…oh, right, the Psycho Circus. That seems like an obstacle for Psycho Clown winning. So, Zorro or Cuervo, which still doesn’t look good for Cuervo, but he should just be thrilled to be nominated. (If Mesias advances in Toluca, maybe they pick up on the Zorro/Mesias dropped feud from 2014.)

Suicide & Bengala continue to face the tag team champions. This is Daga’s first TV appearance since the Hard Rock show after TripleMania. He quietly underwent knee surgery, and Pentagon and Lider were added to build up the Perros del Mal numbers in his absence. (I guess he was still part of the Anarchy at the moment, but they seemed to be shedding that group already.) They might have been added anyway, but maybe Daga would’ve been involved in this tag team reign. Being part of this tag match is at least a shot to see where he is now.

Second match continues the usual feuds. A Reina de Reinas match at Rey de Reyes would fit.

Drastick Boy is a Hidalgo born DTU luchador getting a shot here, with Arez coming back for another time. They’re both on the short side; they probably don’t want to be slotted in as minis but they won’t look out of place.

There’s another AAA show in Naucalpan sometime this month, which seemed to be a taping. That’s probably the next one, but it might be a while before we hear more.

01/30 AAA TV Lineup (Toluca)

AAA TV (FRI) 01/30/2015 Gimnasio Agustín Millán, Toluca, Estado de México
1) ? vs ??
2) Mascarita Sagrada, Mini Drago, Octagoncito vs Mini Abismo Negro, Mini Charly Manson, Mini Psycho Clown
3) Bengala, Drago, Faby Apache vs Joe Lider, Súper Fly, Taya Valkyrie
4) Angélico & Jack Evans vs Averno & Chessman
5) La Parka vs El Mesías, Cibernético, Parka Negra [Rey de Reyes, semifinal]
6) Fénix, Myzteziz, Psycho Clown vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Hijo del Fantasma, Pentagón Jr.

Air Date:  02/07 – and maybe 02/14 assuming that’s a Carta Brava match and not just a locals ones. They’ve been more Carta Brava-ish of late.

Myzteziz vs Perro appears to be the spine of the main event again, with Fantasma replacing Texano and Fenix & Pentagon being added in.

La Parka has a chance to defend his 2014 Rey de Reyes win against his old rival (Parka Negra) and the guy who possibly could be his current rival (Cibernetico.) Mesias messed up his arm something fierce in last year’s Rey de Reyes qualifer, so this year’s can only go better for him.

Angelico & Jack vs Averno & Chessman could be the best match of the show if it’s not an angle this time; the match got derailed to set up the Hell Brothers forming last time. Minis match has a good chance too and the second match should be well received. Toluca’s always good for AAA TV.

Alberto and Sexy Star stick out as two important people who haven’t been seen yet. Only two shows in.

No next taping is announced after this, though it’s possible we could see something announced on AAA TV this weekend. Last year also started with Naucalpan & Toluca, then to Guerrero Negro for the tourism sponsored show and Ecatepec for a normal taping. Maybe back to Ecatepec again this year?

01/23 AAA TV Lineup (Naucalpan)

AAA TV (FRI) 01/23/2015 Arena Naucalpan
1) Dinastía, Ludxor, Venum vs Carta Brava Jr., El Apache, Mini Psycho Clown
2) Australian Suicide & Bengala vs Joe Lider & Pentagón Jr.
3) Aerostar vs Monsther Clown, Súper Fly, Hijo de Pirata Morgan [Rey de Reyes, semifinal]
4) Drago, Jack Evans, La Parka vs Averno, Chessman, Cibernético
5) Myzteziz & Psycho Clown vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Texano Jr.

air date: 01/31, and just 01/31. It’s a five match card. If the plan was to run as few possible tapings before the March relaunch, why wouldn’t they grab a few more people and knock out a second week of TV? ¯_(ツ)_/¯

AAA resumes TV tapings in the sleek modern Arena Naucalpan with some of what was going on last year, though you’d have to rewind a bit. The summer feuds of Perro/Myzteziz and Psycho/Texano are back, probably a little bit because Alberto is not around. The Hell Brothers face Drago, Jack and Parka, which picks up on a slightly more current issue: Parka wasn’t happy with Cibernetico becoming a rudo again and they teased a match that hasn’t quite happened until now – and won’t happen if Cibernetico forgets to show up again. (I bet Parka uses Thriller.)

Aerostar seems to be a favorite in this Rey de Reyes qualifying match, something I’m not sure I thought I’d ever type. Monsther Clown isn’t built for two matches and has the Hell Brothers to worry about. Hijo de Pirata may or may not have some story with Electroshock but definitely doesn’t have many wins in front of the AAA cameras. Super Fly could always get his win back, but I’m not sure they’re that interested in keeping Super Fly strong.

The Suicide/Pentagon feud also picks back up in the segunda. Myzteziz & Fenix seem like logical tag team title challengers, but you could also make a strong case for Suicide and [insert partner here] given all the Suicide/Pentagon history. Bengala is pretty good for an [insert partner here]. Multiway match is always more likely in AAA midcards, but this could set up a reason for them being part of the match. Opener should be a lot of fun, though it might be an internet only deal.

It’s a cool 47 days in between tapings, compared to 34 last winter break and 28 the year prior. It’s all about not having the middle of December taping, because this show is just a week later. After the recent talk about hiatus and changes, it’s business as usual.  The only hint of something being up is the Rey de Reyes tournament starting on the first week back. Usually it’s one or so in, but then this is starting a week later so maybe it works out. Running a qualification tournament means, assuming they’re still doing four in the finals, AAA’s running one to three more tapings. Probably closer to three.

I’ll add the 2015 chart at some point, but the current TV schedule looks like
01/17: Guerra de Titanes part 1
01/24: Guerra de Titanes part 2
01/31: Naucalpan
02/07: Toluca
02/14: Toluca part 2?

Next taping is that show in Toluca, which might turn up quick.
