Mamba is loca


taped 2013-11-22 @ Plaza de Toros San Marcos, Aguascalientes, Aguascalientes
Faby Apache, Pasion Kristal, Pimpinela Escarlata vs Mamba, Taya Valkyrie, Yuriko: Really short match by AAA standards, and they decided to cut everything but the highspots. I think it was edited down even more from what it started out being, but it made it feel like not a lot more than the big spots. Yuriko goes out a winner (which may be why he decided this was the time to go.) Taya did not have a good day. Mamba is crazy.


worst giant swing

Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Dark Spíritu: continued build to a Hijo del Tirantes/Psycho Clown match (which appears to be happening never.) Secta seemed like the brains were already in Japan – they’ve had better matches than this. I’m surprised Dorian Roldan still can book matches.


There is only 1 Jack Evans.

Angélico, Fénix, Jack Evans vs Hijo del Fantasma, Silver King, Texano Jr.: Not as smooth for the técnicos have been in other matches, especially early – the técnicos had a lot of ideas but the rudos weren’t really used to working with hem. It’s a switch from the Psycho Circus. No real mention of Fantasma dropping Fenix on his head back at Heroes Inmoratles. Guess it wasn’t important. Finish went too moves too long – they probably should called it a day after the piledriver, but had to get in more spots.

Cibernético, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, La Parka vs Daga, Parka Negra, Psicosis: a really dragged out angle of a match. Everyone was kind of fooling around until the angle started, and then it was really more about the ‘breakup’ than anything. Konnan possibly turning face seemed to be lost in the shuffle of many things going on. That and Zorro never actually doing anything in his run in makes more sense after the fact. Tough to get a read on Parka Negra because he didn’t have a lot to do outside of a martinete here.

Octagoncito tornillo

taped 2013-10-02 @ Auditorio Miguel Barragan de San Luis Potosi
Aerostar, Octagoncito, Pimpinela Escarlata vs Black Mamba, Gran Apache, Mini Histeria: Pretty much a técnico exhibition. Rudos exhibited a lot of head slaps and the willingness to keep hitting each other. Aerostar and Octagoncito got in a cool dives and crowd still loves Pimpi (despite some cringe-worthy moments) so it generally got over well but there wasn’t a lot to it. Rudos went out of their way to do nothing, most of not been an accident.




Pentago throws Fenix high in the air, crushes him into the ground


legdrop to Escoria’s bad arm

Axel & Fénix vs Pentagón Jr. & Último Gladiador and Dark Scoria & Dark Spíritu: The other two matches in the secret tournament were single fall matches, so of course this one is an elimination one for no particular reason. And chairs are legal but outside interference requires a distraction. AND they did an injury angle with Escoria and had him advance anyway and the injury angle (x2, since they repeated it with the Perros!) went nowhere so I don’t even know. There was a good match here, but you had to hunt around some other stuff to find it. Axel is so bad, but he was even worse in this. Pentagon and Ultimo Gladiador did everything they could to make Axel look good early and it was for nothing because he was so Dallys-level poor later on. I don’t get it. Match was better in the parts he wasn’t involved, but there just wasn’t enough of those parts. Crowd didn’t get into this as much as you’d think.


Jack near slingshot huracanrana


Jack crushing double knee

Angélico, Australian Suicide, Jack Evans vs Carta Brava Jr., Eterno, Steve Pain: Really great match from all involved. Suicide had a much better than his first time out, looking spectacular and not running into any problems. AAA (and Jack & Angelico) are also going out of there way to make sure the new guy doesn’t come off as the lesser third of the team, making sure he gets in his big spots and gets the big win at the end. It’s a great way to get over the newcomer Rudos looked great, as aggressive at offense as they were skilled at working with the técnicos. The rudos created a sense they might actually pull this match off, which is impressive for a team that never wins. A crowd that wasn’t in to the show a lot going into the match was way into it by the end of this. Very much wish Carta Brava was getting to be in the new group with the other two; Juvi’s going to have to be very good to make up for him.


Psycho barricade headscissors

Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Chessman, Silver King, Texano Jr.: Another Consejo/Circus match, now with more bleeding. Can’t believe Psycho lost to Texano on TV the week before his title match. Even cheating, what a strange deflating way to go about things. More of a trios match than the previous match with Texano and Psycho, getting every involved before coming down to the final, but not a match that interested me a much. Crowd was more into this than most anything else.
