***Guerra de Titanes, 2012***
1) Cuervo, Fabi Apache, Mascarita Dorada, Pimpinela Escarlata b Halloween, Mari Apache, Mini Charly Manson, Yuriko
Tecnicos won because of Gran Apache interference – he tried to hit Cuervo with a chair and got Halloween instead. Halloween and Apache hugged after the match.
2) Daga b Juventud Guerrera, Fénix, Joe Lider, Psicosis, Jack Evans [AAA CRUISER, Ladder]
16’17”. Juventud Guerrera is the champ. No Teddy, no TNA wrestler, and Juvi left early after taking a blow from a Lider ladder. Daga beat Fenix for the title. Fenix appeared to be hurt after the match.
3) La Parka, Octagón, Octagon Jr. b Parka Negra, Pentagon Jr., Silver King
18’53”, Parka Negra and Pentagon Jr. were Silver King’s surprise partners, introduced by Dorian and Konnan. Octagon pinned Silver King get the pinfall.
4) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown b Devil Rocker, Machine Rocker, Soul Rocker
13:13. Rockers took their first loss. Uro attacked Murder again after the match and the Clowns were beaten up despite the loss.
5) Texano Jr. b El Mesías [AAA HEAVY]
29:12. Mesias is champion. Fenix was scheduled to be his second, but Octagon Jr. replaced him. Silver King was Texano’s second. Both bled and there was at least one ref bump and one time Silver pulled the ref out to stop the count, but Texano Jr. won the match and the title with a sit down powerbomb cleanly.
6) Vampiro L Cibernético, Dr. Wagner Jr., LA Park, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Chessman [cage, hair]
30:29. Order of escape went LA Park (attacked by Jeff & Karen Jarrett, who also took his mask), Dr. Wagner, Cibernetico (attacked by the Bizarros – Cuervo tried to save and failed, Fabi helped later), and Perro Aguayo Jr. Chessman and Vampiro went for a long while before Chessman escaped due to help from Konnan, Dorian and a fire extinguisher. Konnan, with the winning rudos, announced they would repeat 1996 and leave with the best guys to a new promotion. Joaquin Roldan told Konnan his contract expires next year (???) and he’d be free to go then. Joaquin had the AAA guys run off La Sociedad to prove they weren’t all that much.

Air Date: 12/15 & 12/22

(Live coverage is here)

AAA has done Invasion/opposing promotions storylines since it’s first year, when the opposing promotion was UWA. It’s been near constant since, from PROLLM to Promo Azteca to LLL to whatever Konnan’s calling his group this week. Some of them have actually run their own shows. (Some of them still are – I’m not sure what ‘we should leave AAA and run our own promotion’ actually means to the Perros del Mal.) It’s unclear from the official recap – the only one that mentions Konnan’s contract running out – if the deal ends at midnight on 12/31, or just ‘sometime in the new year’.

It’s not yet clear where this is going. It does occur to me that the debut of a new off shoot promotion starring Konnan is as about as good a place for Konnan to return to the ring as any time.

Vamprio got some hair cut in the cage, some more cut backstage, and ended up with a bit left. I’m thinking that if Vampiro had just gotten his head shaved, it’d take him maybe a couple weeks to get that spiffy new hair do back. (It works for him.) Instead, he and AAA are didn’t deliver on their main event just because they could. Not the first time this has happened – Fabi Apache was the last memorable one – but AAA is caught between wanting to put it’s stars in big apuesta matches to draw fans and their wrestlers not actually wanting to pay the price for that loss.

(Also, if he has a brain tumor like he said this morning, he probably should not be worried about keeping any of his hair.)

(Also, for all our complaining, it does look like Chessman won the feud. A gift win by the sound of it, but you take what you can get when you are the Chessman. Nice of Jarrett and Chessman to get past Chessman’s problems with Abyss and be friends by the end of the show too.)

There’s a compelling case that putting a whole bunch of people in a cage match – a bit we all (AAA included) have mocked CMLL before – is not actually a good way to draw people. SuperLuchas calculated 7,000 people in attendance early in night. It does not come across that full in the photos. This website lists the capacity of the building as 13,000. It includes seats on the floor, though that’s for a concert performance and not something with a big ring in the middle. I would’ve guessed 4,000 people, but I’ve never done the work to see how close my guesses are to reality. The last major show here, Guerra de Titans 2010, was reported as 6,000 people in the WON. That show ran against Rayo de Jalisco and Universo 20000 returning to Arena Coliseo Guadalajara.

Juvi’s injury was to his shoulder, the same shoulder which had kept him out of the ring until now. Fenix’s injury is unclear, but looks like maybe shoulder and neck based on the pictures. (How No other injuries were mentioned. Texano and Mesias bled a lot in their match.

Rockers/Clowns was said to be least match of the night, while Texano/Mesias was said to be the best. Compliments to the ladder match as well. Vampiro and Chessman went 16 minutes by themselves to end the cage match, more than half the length of the match, which sounds way too much for both of them. Some of that is Chessman climbing and missing a moonsault (because he’s Chessman and he must fall off high objects.)

Dorian Roldan went out of his way to note Super Fly is NOT Pentagon Jr. – which makes sense, Super Fly let everyone down and got kicked out of La Sociedad, why would Dorian want him back? I posted a link to Facebook of Mortiz being mentioned as Parka Negra. I’m not sure that’s actually true, but it gives us something to look for when the show airs.

AAA has just 1 main TV in about the next six weeks, a 12/21 show in Acapulco. The period after Guerra de Titanes thru February is normally AAA’s slowest period of the year as far as shows and development, and they usually won’t start building Rey de Reyes until they’re a month out. There should still be Fusion tapings during this stretch – the next one might be announced this week.

10/07 AAA TV Results (SLP) – Heroes Inmortales

AAA TV (SUN) 10/07/2012 Domo Centro de Espectaculos, San Luis Potosi [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), Fuego en el Ring]
***Heroes Inmortales, 2012***
1) Mini Charly Manson, Mini Histeria, Mini Psycho Clown b Dinastía, Mascarita Dorada, Octagoncito
Mini Charly replaced Mini Psicosis and beat Dorada with a foul.
2) Halloween & Mari Apache b Atomic Boy & Fabi Apache and Fenix & Lolita and Alan Stone & Jennifer Blake [AAA MIXED TAG]
Match was announced for vacant titles, but Alan Stone replaced Ultimo Gladiador and so the tag champs were reunited. Halloween replaced Gran Apache. Both may be explained on TV we haven’t seen yet. Sexi Star was guest referee, which was mentioned when the lineup was announced locally but treated as a surprise here. Gran Apache attacked Atomic Boy and powerbomed him on the floor. Halloween speared Fabi, then allowed Mari to have the honor of the winning pin. Gran Apache did a 180 on Halloween and talked him up to Mari, but Mari still left Halloween hanging when he went for a hug.
3) Joe Lider & Vampiro b Abyss & Chessman [AAA TAG]
Abyss & Chessman came in as champs. Usual hardcore match. Vampiro pinned Chessman to win the title. Abyss was angry about the title loss and beat up Chessman. Vampiro tried to make the save, but Chessman attacked him.
4) Texano Jr. b El Elegido, Extreme Tiger, La Parka Jr., Toscano, Daga, Héctor Garza, Juventud Guerrera, Último Gladiador, El Mesías, Heavy Metal, Psycho Clown, Alebrije [Copa Antonio Pena]
Battle royal and maybe royal rumble rules. Elimination order went Toscano, Extreme Tiger, Ultimo Gladiador (evidently replacing Zorro), Psycho Clown, Juvi and then no more were mentioned of it. Juvi suffered a shoulder injury and was strechered out. Elegido, Daga, Heavy Metal did participate and went out of during this span. AAA’s recap also mentions Alebrije being added to the match. Final four were Parka, Garza, Mesias and Texano. Garza and Park went out, and Texano won with a Konnan distraction and a foul. Texano said he respected Antonio Pena’s contributions – to CMLL – but refused to accept the trophy. Mesias vowed to send Texano back to CMLL. Referee Copetes ruled the championship vacant.
5) Jeff Jarrett, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Silver Kain b Dr. Wagner Jr., LA Park, Zorro
Zorro replaced Electroshock. Rudos won with a Jarrett chair shot to Park and destroyed Parka after the match.
6) Halloween L Cibernético, Cuervo, Jack Evans, Ozz, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Teddy Hart, Psicosis [dome cage, hair]
Last man out lost his hair. Teddy was accompanied by the two (unnamed) blonde women from Thursday’s Perros del Mal show. Order of escape went Cibernetico, Ozz, Psicosis, Perro, Teddy, Jack and finally Cuervo to leave Halloween behind. Both the Perros and Sect got involved when it came down to Cuervo and Halloween, with Fabi and Atomic Boy also attacking Halloween with a light tube, and Cuervo powerbombing Halloween thru a table.

Air Date: 10/20, 10/27

AAA’s Twitter also said there’d be about a surprise as far as how we’ll be able see the show. My guess is they’re upload to YouTube; they did that with both TripleMania and the expo show, and have done it for non-match footage from Ecatepec.

This is Halloween’s 3rd hair loss in 3 years. He lost his hair on the same event one year ago, in the Psycho Circus vs Perros del Mal masks vs hair match. I had hypothesized Halloween had been offered a reward for sticking in AAA when his friends had left; I might still be right, though I was off by one show. It’s Cuervo’s first hair match win in a decade; he won a few in the late 90s, when he was an indy guy wrestling in the likes of Arena Lopez Mateos. This is a result Arena Mexico fans would be mightily uphappy about – similar to Goya Kong losing her mask/scarf. I think AAA fans probably were hoping for a more significant result, but have been trained as to what AAA considers a fair result and aren’t (or shouldn’t) be surprised.

Don’t have an attendance number. Judging from Black Terry Jr.’s pictures – which you should click and check out up there – the top level/ring of the arena was empty (not sold?) and the luxury boxes were mostly unused, but the lower levels seem pretty full. Maybe in the 9,000 area, but your guess is as good as mine.

Not sure what happened to Electroshock. He worked Tinieblas show on Thursday and there’s no mention of an injury in the recap. Also curious is Hector Garza apparently being OK to work this show when he was too hurt to work the Perros del Mal show a couple days prior (but it’s nice he’s feeling better!)

I’m not quite sure why Texano is friends with Konnan, when Consejo was very specifically against everyone else and only forced to team with others them by decree. Konnan sure seems to be the brains behind every rudo faction at the same time. Perhaps this is explained on a vignette that I haven’t seen yet (though it wouldn’t hurt AAA to bring up these skits elsewhere.)

Next taping is 10/12, as posted earlier today. AAA has one more major show of the year, Guerra de Titanes. It usually takes place in early December. Every AAA major show has taken place on Sunday this year, so figure 12/09 or (more likely) 12/16. Maybe in Ciudad Madero, since they’ve not run TV there all year and have run major shows in the past.

Update: El Sol de San Luis Potosi estimates the attendance as “3/4ths full, 5,000 fans” That’s a lot smaller building then I had seen listed earlier this weekend (7, 500 instead of 11,000.) They also confirm the Copa Antonio Pena was Royal Rumble style, with Mesias and Daga starting out and joined by Psycho Clown, Elegido, Juvi, Tiger, Toscano, Glaidador, Texano, Metal, Alebrije, Parka, and Hector Garza in last. It’s still listed as 12 man match though that sure seems like 13 names.

Fuego/Dr. X, Rush keeps his title, AAA/TNA


CMLL (TUE) 05/10/2011 Arena Mexico [CMLL, MT, Record]
1) Astro Boy & Bengala b Disturbio & Semental
2) Estrellita, Princesa Sujei, Tiffany b Dalys la Caribeña, Estrella Mágica, Luna Mágica
Sujei beat Luna.
3) Diamante, Fuego, Rey Cometa DQ Dr. X, Hooligan, Virus
Tecnicos took falls 1 and 3, with Dr. X fouling Fuego by DQ. Fuego & Dr. X have ended up in a DQ three of the last four weeks.
4) Felino, Mephisto, Negro Casas b Ángel de Oro, Hijo del Fantasma, Valiente
Rudos took falls 1 and 3. Mephisto replaced Dragon Rojo.
5) Atlantis, Héctor Garza, Mr. Niebla b Black Warrior, Blue Panther, Strong Man
Rudos took falls 1 and 3, with Atlantis sneaking in a foul on Blue Panther.

CMLL (TUE) 05/10/2011 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) El Divino b Thunder Boy
2) Magnum & Metatrón b Ángel del Mal & Exterminador
Angel del Mal’s first match here since 2011-01-25.
3) Delta, Gallo, Metro b Misterioso Jr., Puma King, Tiger Kid
4) Dark Angel, Goya Kong, Marcela b Amapola, La Comandante, Princesa Blanca
Goya Kong splash on everyone, of course.
5) Rush b Psicosis [CMLL LH]
Seconds were Misterioso & Metro. Psicosis took the first fall, Rush took the second, Psicosis used the middle rope to pin Rush in the third, but ref Loco figured it out and ordered the match continued. (Rush getting ‘lucky breaks’ is probably the least helpful thing for him.) Rush went onto to submit Psicosis to keep the title.

Dorian says Mickie James will be appearing at TripleMania. Jeff Jarrett continues to rant in videos for AAA; this one teases AAA appearances by Kurt Angle, Sting and Jeff Hardy.

Chessman explains the difference between Los Maniacos and Los Maniaquia is more anarchy. Not sure that’ll go well for Konnan. They’re in the semimain on the 05/18 SLP taping vs the Psycho Circus; rest of the card still TBA.



CMLL (MON) 05/16/2011 Arena Puebla
1) Stigma & Tigre Rojo Jr. vs Espiritu Maligno & Sauron
2) Dalys la Caribeña, Goya Kong, Luna Mágica vs Mima Shimoda, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sujei
3) Pegasso, Rey Cometa, Sensei vs Hooligan, Loco Max, Nitro
4) Hijo del Fantasma, Máximo, Valiente vs Ephesto, Mephisto, Olímpico
5) La Máscara, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada vs Atlantis, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas

CMLL Trios champs teaming up in the main event.

Valiente & Lyger keep their titles, Cindo de Mayo shows

CMLL (MON) 05/02/2011 Arena Puebla [Cindo Radio]
4) Valiente b Virus [MEX WELTER]
Valiente kept the title. He’d like a world title match with Averno, Mephisto or Ultimo Guerrero. (Mephisto doesn’t actually have the world title.) Virus gave Valiente credit for the win, called him a good wrestler, and said the wrestling connoisseur would appreciate their bout.
5) Rush, Strong Man, Toscano b Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
Strong Man replaced Black Warrior.

No results from the early matches as of yet.

05/03: Jushin Liger beat Mascara Dorada [CMLL WELTER]; 10:04, brainbuster for the win.

Liger’s turned back Dorada and Sombra twice. Liger spoke positively about Dorada, who appeared to have a good tournament, but pointed out he’s beatable on the ground. Liger’s post match comments seem to point to another Sombra match. Dorada will get another singles match with Liger in Best of Super Juniors tournament, which starts up on May 26. Dorada has one more day on the tour, then flies home for Friday’s show.

Cinco de Mayo

Dragon Rojo vs “Angel Azteca” is billed for a NY tequila show on 05/05.

Lucha Va Voom’s shows are main evented by Sicodelico in LA and Casandro in Chicago. That seems unfair to my friends in LA, but they’re certain to get a Lil Chicken who might be Mascarita Dorada on other days. Tickets are $45 at the Mayan in LA (no seats, same prices for everyone) and $25 GA to $150 for booths in Chicago. If anyone’s going, let me know.

Forjando un Idolo

I liked both of them. CMLL’s press release on the tournament says Guerrero Maya Jr. and Metal Blanco will fight tonight as a tie breaker. Winner is second place in Group Charly and meets Angel de Oro on Friday. Press release doesn’t mention it, but the website lists Rey Escorpion with 7 points, having won the final voting point.

Other Stuff

On this past week’s TV, Chessman did join Los Maniacos, but they’re now calling themselves La Maniarquia. Also, Dorian brought up Jeff Jarrett by name, so he’s for sure in. Sting? I’m guessing no, though that’d be a big deal.

Rey Escorpion says his son’s illness is “Legg-Calve-Perthes“, a disease attacking the hip which only happens to young boys. The boy has already had two operations, but Rey Escorpion needs to raise funds for a third. All the guys working the 05/21 show volunteered to work on the show (and Shocker will be signing autographs), and Rey Escorpion is grateful for their support.

Princesa Sujei will appear on the next DTU show. DTU’s only used AAA wrestlers prior, I thought they had announced Chessman vs Joe Lider for the next show, and CMLL’s not letting their people work on the same show as AAA people. Whatever the situation, DTU girls working with someone like Sujei is only good news for them.

Bestia 666 will be on the Urban Wrestling Federation show. For his level of experience, Bestia 666 has been perfectly fine (though he hasn’t been in much of a place to show in AAA.)

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.



CMLL (MON) 05/09/2011 Arena Puebla
1) Black Tiger & Centella de Oro vs Espiritu Maligno & King Jaguar
2) Lestat, Metálico, Starman vs Apocalipsis, Arissma, Inquisidor
3) Dark Angel, Goya Kong, Lluvia vs La Comandante, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sujei
4) La Máscara, Máscara Dorada, Máximo vs Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Texano
5) La Sombra, Rush, Toscano vs Atlantis, Dragón Rojo Jr., Último Guerrero

They got all the rudos on the right teams, hooray.

Popitekus, Mask Matches, Santo in Dallas (and not Chicago), sound ideas



Kurt Brown has a great remembrance of Popitekus. Segunda Caida reviews the Brazos/Popitekus match linked to the other day.

Dos de Tres posted a video of Chessman in a cast, which is the first time AAA’s acknowledged he’s hurt. Looks like he’s making spot shows still, or at least that one.

Ovaciones has a preview of today’s Arena Mexico show, which is good even besides the parts read from the luchawiki CMLL Tag Team Championship page. There’s also an article about the impending debut of Mercenario Jr. SuperLuchas is picking the champs in the title match.

Seuxis has a big plan to win her mask match on Sunday: she and Silueta have learned from the same trainers, so the ruda knows everything the tecnica knows, but Seuxis also knows ruda tricks to give her the edge. Makes sense to me.

In the other mask match, Dr. X says he’d like to stay to the end, just to get his hands on Fabian el Gitano and settle it one on one. That’s the psychological problem with lucha de apuesta en cage problems: if you hate this other person so much that you’re willing to put your entire identity, your life, on the line just to get a shot at theirs, why do you ever leave the cage and give up that opportunity? You’d have to be a liar or a coward to want to leave, and I guess rudos are closer to the former, and it’d only make sense to leave as a tecnico if you rival has already gone, but that’s not usually how it works.

The latest WON says Sexi Star contacted WWE about getting in. Meltzer says she doesn’t speak English, clearly exposing how little AAA TV he watches. (Okay, she doesn’t speak English well.) I can’t imagine it’s going to work out, but it says something about the promotion when the most important woman in AAA over the last year or so is looking for a place elsewhere. I wonder if she’s under contract.

Hereos del Ring says there will be a mystery legendary luchador to unlock in the game. Alliens?

Yesterday, AAA had an article about getting back on Gaora TV in Japan this year. Dorian tweeted a similar message earlier and Dos de Tres echoed on Facebook. Today, that article is mysteriously missing, so why don’t I just post it:

Triple A está iniciando acuerdos de trabajo con al televisora deportiva japonesa Gaora, con la cual empezará a transmitir los eventos magnos de la tres veces estelar a partir de ya.  El primer evento en ser transmitido en las pantallas japonesas será el ya muy próximo Verano de Escándalo, que tendrá lugar en la ciudad de Orizaba, Veracruz.    Triple A está abriendo nuevos mercados también en el aspecto TV, con lo que la presencia de la lucha libre mexicana se cotizará todavía más en el mundo.

AAA also catches us up on the biggest issue in the promotion at the moment: Billy Boy’s thoughts on teaming with Tiger Cota & Decnnis vs the Air Force in Toluca. Spoiler: he thinks his teammates are good and his opponents are not.

For R de Rudo, Brazo de Plata introduces Brazo de Plata Jr., Brazo Metalico, and Goya Kong as his newest debuting sons and daughters.

Shocker, Angel de Oro, Angel de Plata and Camorra visited ill children in the hospital.

Local Articles

El Hijo del Santo is listed on a show in Dallas on Sunday. El Hijo del Santo is also listed on a show in Chicago on Sunday. That is a bit problematic! Santo says he’ll be in Dallas, which is all the excuse I need not to go to Congress Theater. This is actually a fine defense of Twitter.

El Pancracio has info on some of the guys on their Lucha Libre Expo show, and hypes up their main event.

Sportimes previews Puebla’s anniversary show.

In Guadalajara, local wrestler Leo says replacing Toscano in the semimain Sunday with the regular CMLL wrestlers was a dream come thru. He’s only been wrestling for three months, and sometimes it pays to be the replacement guy.

Dos de Tres teases a feature on behind the scenes of TripleMania. Surprised they’d show La Parka and LA Park within arms reach of each other, even in this context.

Hidalgo Sports interviews Fuerza Minera, who is apparently sponsored by the local mineworkers union.

Cronicas Y Leyendas write about San Luis Potosi legendary local wrestler Carnicero Grimaldo.

People are (predictably) complaining about the bad condition of the floor in Auditorio Municipal de Torreon after the return box and lucha events, including an AAA taping. This is what got those events kicked out of that building again.

In Oaxaca, the town council is reviewing local laws passed in 1986 which ban women’s wrestling and prohibit parents from bringing infants to the shows. That 1986 date means they put in the women’s wrestling ban just as Mexico City was lifting theirs, probably in response to other ruling.

There’s a restaurant in Tulsa, Oklahoma – Elote Cafe and Catering – with lucha libre wrestling every other Thursday. KTUL has a story about the luchadors, and I think have a new favorite gimmick: La Princesa De Cerveza. How did she come up with that identity?

La Princesa’s image was a simple matter of taste, “I love beer, absolutely love beer. So I figured why not be the princess of beer?”

Why not!

Good Stuff Elsewhere

DJ Spectro has more video from Pavillion Azteca.

Segunda Caida has another threesome of Black Terry matches.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.


CMLL (TUE) 07/20 Arena Mexico
1) Rayo Tapatío I & Rayo Tapatío II vs Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Pequeño Halcón, Pequeno Maximo, Último Dragoncito vs Cisne, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Violencia
3) Ángel Azteca Jr., Ángel de Plata, Fabián el Gitano vs Arkangel de la Muerte, Dr. X, Skándalo
4) Máximo, Rotoporky, Sagrado vs Charly Manson, El Alebrije, Olímpico
5) La Máscara, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada vs Héctor Garza, Terrible, Texano

Charly Manson (spelled “Charlie”, but that may just be CMLL.com’s random spelling generator) starts here as an Invader, though how long he lasts is anyone’s guess. This is his first match here, but maybe not his first appearance – he was one of the AAA guys who invading to set up the AAA vs CMLL show if I’m remembering right. Two more of the four minis introduced recently actually make their debut.

Beside the debuts, they’ve also got the current trios champs versus some possible contenders, plus the tercera has some Infierno en el Ring fall out. It’s the first appearance for an unmasked Fabian/Dr. X, or maybe those two both still have their masks but are setting up a one on one encounter soon. (And the opener is the quintessential opener.)

CMLL (TUE) 07/20 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Black Metal vs Titanio
2) Angelo & Javier Cruz Jr. vs Acertijo & León Blanco
3) Leo & Palacio Negro vs Ebola & Ráfaga
4) Fuego, Metal Blanco, Stuka Jr. vs Exterminador, Máscara Mágica, Pólvora
5) Blue Panther, Hijo del Fantasma, Metro vs Atlantis, Dragón Rojo Jr., Rey Bucanero

Less interesting. Mascara Magica just returned last week after being out of the ring for weeks, lined up against Metal Blanco then, and is lined up against Metal Blanco now. Take a guess where this one is going.

DTU (FRI) 07/23 Centro Banamex
1) Dement Xtreme vs Chica Tormenta
2) Tacubo vs Muerte Bucanera, Disturbio, Flamita, Ciclope, Hormiga, Skrash, ?
3) Tribal vs Black Fire
4) Trauma I & Trauma II vs Paranoiko & Psicosis III
5) Crazy Boy & Daga vs Drastik Boy & Iron Love and Eterno & Low Rider
6) Aeroboy vs Joe Lider, Kaientai, Violento Jack, Murder Angel [DTU]

Another updated card for LLExpo. Show name is “I [heart] DTU”, which I believe is a trick to force me to type those words. Devilish.

All the AAA-specific guys – Electroshock, Dark Family – are off this card, as is Negro Navarro and Skayde.The last two might be someone realizing no one was allowed to work doubleheaders last year and adjustments being made (which means the NWA card might lose the Traumas.)

The only AAA guys left are part of the usual pack of guys who were working these sorts of shows before they were in AAA. At the same time, MedioTiempo has an interview with Crazy Boy talking about this updated lineup. Crazy trips over himself talking about how much the fantastic relationship he has with AAA even though he hasn’t been on TV in quite a while. Crazy Boy says it’s Violento Jack and Aero Boy and Paranoico who take care of DTU when he’s on tour with AAA.

The Disturbio guy in the second can’t be the CMLL guy, or it won’t be the CMLL guy.

10/10 AAA TV Results (Queretaro)

AAA TV (FRI) 10/10 Auditorio Municipal Jose Maria Arteaga de Queretaro
1) Fabi Apache & Mari Apache b Ayako Hamada & Cinthia Moreno
2) Alan Stone & Chris Stone b Jack Evans & Teddy Hart
3) El Mesias DQ Chessman
4) Electro Shock & Konnan b Octagón & Súper Fly
5) Killer Clown, Psycho Clown, Zombie Clown b Cuervo, Escoria, Espiritu
6) Cibernetico b Zorro

2008 AAA TV Taping List
Projected Air Date (#857)
Mexico: 10/12
US: 11/01

You know how I sometimes complain about AAA doing three months of angles on one show, and then no angles for three months? This was the one with all the angles.

The show started with another promo. I’ll let you know when AAA blocking their show out like WWE stops being hilarious. Konnan was in ring with the urn, calling out Roldan so he could hand over his demands (which go unrecorded in AAA’s recap.) Roldan came out with security, who were promptly taken out by Jack, Teddy, Zorro and Electro. Roldan had more help, and Chris Stone, Alan Stone, Killer Clown, Zombie Clown, Psycho Clown (Psycho Circus is AAA!), Octagon, and Super Fly ran out to attack the Legion. In the scrum, Alan got the urn, but it turned out to be a fake. Konnan gave Roldan a two hour dealine to accept the demands, or else.

Opener doesn’t get much write up, just the Apaches beating the rudas.

As the second match was going on, D-Generation-Mex interrupted from the stage to introduce their newest member, Alex Koslov. This distracted Jack & Teddy and cost them the match. After the match, DGM hit the ring to confront Hart Foundation 2. Alex was about to hit Jack with a chair, but X-Pac stopped him, saying they wanted to recruit Evans for the group. X-Pac and Rocky proceeded to beat up Teddy and Nicole with a (sledge?)hammer, causing Teddy to be strechered out.

Clowns are at 210 wins now. The Dark Family (Espiritu replacing Ozz for no mentioned reason) might have won this match, if not for Chessman trying to help out and accidently spearing Espiritu. Psycho covered for the pin.

Fourth match saw Octagon get tied in the ropes and Super Fly killed again like a jobber. After the match, Konnan said the time was up and he wanted Roldan out now. Roldan did come, but instead of meeting Konnan’s demand, suggested a match where if Konnan wins, he keeps the ashes and gets to run AAA, but if Roldan wins, he gets the urn back and Konnan has to retire from wrestling. (I presume they’re having others wrestle this match for them, but it’s not made clear.) Konnan accepted, because he can’t be too worried about having to retire from wrestling; it takes something to show that clip of Konnan losing the retirement match every year while he’s still wrestling, it takes something more to do another match with him and a retirement stip.

Chessman got DQed in his match with Mesias. There’s a mention of excessive violence, but that doesn’t seem to exist in AAA. They also mention him hitting Hijo de Tirantes, which does get you a DQ here. Chessman tied Mesias up in the ropes in a crucfix position (of course!) and poured gasoline on him. Right when Chessman was about to burn Mesias alive, the Dark Family came out – and turned on Chessman. After they finished beating him, they set upon burning Mesias themselves. I guess they really wanted to be the one to do it! This time, Cibernetico made the save for Mesias. And then, the Psycho Circus showed up, and challenged Cibernetico to a match!

If you followed all that, on one read thru, give yourself a gold star. The end product is we’ve got Chessman split right back off from Cuervo/Ozz/Espirtu/Escoria but both groups are still feuding with the iffy Mesias/Cibernetico alliance. And the Clowns are here too.

AAA suggests this may set up a Chessman/Psycho Circus alliance which would not only has potential for entertainment, but could give the Psycho Circus something approaching an endgame (the Dark Family’s atomicos titles.)

In the main event, Zorro lost. That’s all Zorro gets. It seems like Zorro and Konnan are having issues about who’s in charge. Chessman also interrupted the match to challenge Cibernetico to another match. After Cibernetico won, Chessman figured there’s no time like the present and attacked Cibernetico. The save was made by Charly Manson’s music. Charly came out to the stage and said “I have decided to go with…

…” and then he just left. What a jerk!

09/19: AIdC, tonight’s show not on PPV, Panther vs V5

site note: Despite no PPV, there still will be a chat. It may be just all of refreshing SuperLuchas page and talking about refreshing SuperLuchas, but that’s what we’d be doing anyway. The post for the chat will go up around 7 CST, and the chat itself will start at 7:45.

CMLL (THU) 09/18 Arena Isabel de Cuervanca [Dark Atlantis @ el Martinete]
1) Dragon & Platita b Dr. Maldad & Pequeno Leopardo
2) Lady Apache & Marcela b Amapola & Princesa Sujei
3) Máximo, Metalik, Mictlan b Dragon Rojo Jr., Sangre Azteca, Skandalo
4) Blue Panther, Dr. Wagner Jr., LA Park DQ Mr. Niebla, Texano Jr., Villano V

Park and Wagner couldn’t get along to cost themselves the second fall, but manged to get it together in the second and third. After they took out Texano and Niebla with dives, V5 yanked Panther’s mask for the DQ.

The big news is CMLL’s show being pulled off the PPV. SoloLuchas confirms it on their site, and there’s plenty of message board threads with people calling up to order and being turned down. Even the ad in Ovaciones says “No Sera Transmitido Por Sky”, so I’m thinking it won’t be on PPV.

Advertising the PPV and yanking it is very strange; based on this and the ticket slashing, they’re evidently most concerned with filling up Arena Mexico. The show will be part of the regular broadcast Saturday afternoon.

Best part of this lucha libre history/anniversary preview article? Villano V is angry with Villano I!. See, Villano I helped trained Blue Panther, and V5 thinks V1 taught Panther too much, because thirty years later he’s really hard to beat. V5 says he knew this was a problem way back when he was Rokambole and fighting Panther, but Villano I said it was to force V5 to be even better to one day defeat him.

It’s kinda sad that it took until the Friday of the show for someone to go back and find a story about Villano V and Blue Panther feuding in the past 30 years, instead of just saying acting as if it’s been a 30 year straight rivalry when nothing was going on until they started feuding this year. I’ve gone back and looked, and these two rarely cross paths this decade until this year; the only other stretch was after Villano III lost his mask and turned tecnico, when it was the Villanos teaming up against various rudos looking for revenge.

Blue Panther tells ESTO that he expects Villano V’s shoulder will be fine for tonight’s match. Villano V is hoping one of his brothers can be a second (or a third) along with Perro Jr.

Panther recalls his start in lucha libre to Box Y Lucha. “My first salary was 240 pesos; I became insane, I did not know what to with that money.”

Villano III mourns the demolition of El Toreo.

SuperLuchas has video interviews with both wrestlers. They also point to a YouTube comp of recent famous mask matches.

One who won’t be part of the anniversary show is Shocker, who spends a SoloLuchas interview, who hopes to be back in CMLL ASAP. Sounds like his departure wasn’t his choice. In Box Y Lucha, Shocker says he’s not even sure why he’s in trouble, but he’d like to be out of it. It sounds like the story that’s told a lot when people get dropped by CMLL; the office never tells them they’re done, they just stop calling them and returning phone calls.

India Sioux says she stepped away from the ring due to a broken nose suffered in the cibernetico for the national title (May 2007); she didn’t/could get it fixed, her nose became congested when she’d train, and she couldn’t breath. India wasn’t sure if wrestling was for her, so she took time off to rehab and strength her relationship to her husband. She decided to come back a couple weeks ago, asked CMLL to give her four weeks to get back into shape, and CMLL booked her the next week.

kcidis picks Blue Panther

An AAA lineup for Tijuana lists Cibernetico vs Chessman in a cage match. Note that Mesias is in Cibernetico’s corner. (How do you have seconds in a cage match? You have people who are running in, for sure.) The very next day, with most of the same crew, Chessman is working as a tecnico, teaming with La Parka Jr. So either AAA thinks matches where partners are obviously turning on each other are good main events, or they can’t decide from one day to the next who’s on who’s side.

This week’s Wrestling Observer says Hart Foundation II was supposed to win the tag titles at Verano de Escandalo, but they were instead given to Nicho & Lider due to disciplinary reasons.

If you don’t want to travel to Mexico City, there’s lucha libre in Santo Domingo, DR tonight.

07/27 AAA TV Results (Cd. Madero)

Previous: 07/06 (Puebla), 07/15 (TripleMania), 07/16 (Leon)

AAA TV (FRI) 07/27 Centro de Convenciones de Ciudad Madero [aaa photo blogger]
1) Cinthia Moreno, Octagoncito, Oriental, Pimpinela Escarlata b Alfa, Fabi Apache, Gran Apache, Mini Histeria
2) Extreme Tiger b Laredo Kid, Aero Star, Super Fly, Escoria, Hombre Sin Miedo, Rey Cometa, Pegasso [Torneo Alas de Oro]
3) Alan Stone, Scorpio Jr., Super Calo, Zumbido b Alberije, Brazo de Plata, El Elegido, Zorro
4) Crazy Boy, Joe Lider, Juventud Guerrera b Head Hunter I, Scoria, Shryu Dragon, X-Pac
5) Kenzo Suzuki, Mesias, Ozz b Charly Manson, Chessman, Cibernetico [cage]

Air Date (assuming everything airs)
Mex: 08/12
US: 09/01

The recap doesn’t exactly list results, but you can put it together based on the pictures.

Legion won the main event cage match with some outside help from X-Pac. Chessman took a big move off a ladder thru a table. Hell Brothers had a valet, but I’m kinda expecting it to be a one time deal.

No Ron Killings in the semimain. I’m not sure that Head Hunter I and Scoria were both supposed to be in the match replacing him, but it effectively worked out that way. Extreme Tiger ran into help his side, and it was very much your usual Mexican Powers match. Shryu Dragon is another indy hardcore wrestler – he fits the Sabu tease without actually costing Sabu money. It looks like Crazy Boy got hurt by the end of this match, and Joe Lider really should be as well. After multiple tables being broken and Extreme Tiger coming off a balcony with a dive, the finish was X-Pac trying to Tombstone Juvy, and Extreme Tiger knocking Juvy on top with a dropkick. Makes you wonder what the point of everything else was.

Super Calo appears to still be wrestling under that name, but as a member of the Guapos. This match was the usual between these sides, and I think Calo picked up the win with a guillotine legdrop (and some help from Alan.) Zorro’s been eating a lot of pins for a guy who seemed to be their new top star.

Tons of dives in the Alas de Oro tournament; that should be interesting to see. Extreme Tiger beat Super Fly to take it.

Oriental won the opener by giving Alfa a German suplex, a reverse of the TripleMania finish and an indication that this will be ongoing. Figure a title match at one of the next two tapings.

07/15 AAA TV Results (TripleMania)

Previous: 06/17, 07/01, 07/06

AAA TV (SUN) 07/15 Toreo de Cuatro Caminos

8) Kenzo Suzuki L Cibernetico, Chessman, Charly Manson, Mesias, X-Pac [cage, hair]

Air Date
Mex: 07/22 – this was a 5 hour show live, so I still think there’s a possibility they split it.
US: 08/11

The following is cribbing heavily from Medio Tempo‘s report, because they’ve got the only detailed account I’ve seen. I’ve bolded a couple of changes I’ve noticed from early reports. You can read prior TripleMania coverage (live, and day after) elsewhere on this webpage.

Charly Manson exited the cage first, followed by X-Pac. X-Pac and Konnan teamed up to lay out Charly on the outside, and set up a whole bunch of tables. Mesias started to escape, Chessman went after him, and that’s when Chessman took the huge bump off the cage to the tables. This left Kenzo and Cibernetico inside. Mesias tried to help by blowing fire at Cibernetico, but Kenzo got it instead, and that lead to the pin.

Konnan got in a cheap shot on Zorro which lead to the Rikishi pin in the semimain. It sounds like Zorro being stretchered out was storyline (selling the Bonzai Drop) while Parka being stretchered out might or might not have been (landed on his bad shoulder while taking a bump for a Sabu move.)

Sangre Chicana and Octagon did work as seconds in the Guerrera v Guerrera battle. Tirantes was the ref, so you can figure how this went early. Octagon did indeed get tied to the ropes to prevent him from helping, and the comeback started with Pepe Casas coming out to cut him free. Somehow in the battle, Sangre Chicana was locked in ambulance to prevent him from interfering, and Juvi pinned Fuerza with Pepe Casas counting. Fuerza offered a handshake post match, but Juvi refused and walked off with Octagon. Juvi should totally decide to be Octagon Jr. now.

In the notLadder match, Extreme Tiger (second) set up Scoria (second) on a table on the floor and went to the top rope to put him thru, but Ozz shoved Extreme Tiger off, and Tiger hit the floor. The table remained unbroken, so Cuervo set up Lider on the table and did hit his dive thru the table, but Lider and Cuervo were hurt in the process. Crazy Boy overcame took out Escoira and Ozz, winning with a (wait for it) chair assisted flying move to Mexican Powers win the tag titles.

Box Y Lucha?/unmasked Super Calo

The Relevos Incredible matchup ended up being Gran Apache & Laredo Kid vs Super Fly & Super Calo, so it was change of plans. Apache & Calo opted to work it like they were tag partners early on, beating down the Fuerza Aerea duo. Somewhere in here, Laredo Kid missed a dive on Calo, but was all right (relatively.) Like recent AAA tag matches, this was one fall to a finish (not elimination style), so when Apache beat Super Fly, it was over.

The Super Fly vs Super Calo match was held after the ladder match and the Guerreras match. Super Calo was revealed to be Rafael Garcia of DF, 15 year wrestler. They did a bit with Alan Stone consoling him to set up the new alliance.

Alebrije & Cuije beat Scorpio Jr. & Guaptio with planchas to win that match.

Alfa beat Oriental with a Dragon Suplex to win the opener. Oriental was KOed in the process.

Lita performed after the show. Ricky Marvin was announced as coming in September.

07/16: TripleMania, Coliseo, IWRG, Monterrey, Neza

cmll/gangs all here

Haven’t seen a news report on TripleMania, but there are still skattered bits from fan reports. I’d lead this off with an TripleMania picture, but there’s apparently 2 in all the land, and you’ve seen them.

Black Terry Jr. says there was a video for Ricky Marvin coming in September, but it’s not clear if this is just him working with the group while in Japan or what. Lita’s band performed after the main event due to time issues. He thinks the Chessman fall sell was more angle than actual death. I seriously looked at the cage photo a dozen times before I figured out that was Chessman taking the bump.

Chessman’s too valuable to the company to be attempting suicide on every major show, they’ve got to put a stop to it – Crazy Boy could do it.

– Skap_fett corrects a couple of finishes (opener, Guapos), lists Super Calo’s real name as Rafael Garcia, runs down the large injury list: Scoria (who wasn’t technically in a match!), Joe Lider, Laredo Kid, Zorro, Chessman, La Parka Jr. – those last two were hurting bad.
Dhani says Black Pearl was with the rudos in the Atomicos match, making it 5 v 4.

AAA TV (SUN) 07/15 Toreo de Cuatro Caminos

I’m going to wait till Triple A or Super Lucha gives me official results before I do the results post, to save me from edits later. I’m still not sure about the tag title match. It’ll all end up in one place in the end.

An article that got picked up all over the place talks about AAA’s planned expansion in to the US. Not much new; I didn’t know Televisa didn’t want to produce the TV show in 2003. They list Chicago, Miami, Houston, Los Angeles and New York as cities where AAA will be going, but I’m not sure if they mean live events or if PPVs will just be available.

CMLL (SUN) 07/22 Arena Coliseo [cmll]
1) Astro Boy & Trueno vs Jeque & Messala
2) Lady Apache, Marcela, Sahori vs Amapola, Hiroka, Seductora
3) Fabian el Gitano, Leono, Tony Rivera vs Nosferatu, Satanico, Virus
4) Felino, Heavy Metal, La Mascara vs Emilio Charles Jr., Hirooki Goto, Okumura
5) Alex Koslov, Dos Caras Jr., Dr. Wagner Jr. vs Terrible, Villano III, Villano V
6) Rey Bucanero vs Atlantis [CMLL LH]

I know y’all said you don’t like this card, but I’m thrilled for that main event. Hopefully they’ll get more than 5 minutes this time. And the opener should be fine. It’s tougher defending the stuff in the middle, though building to Amapola/Marcela in a singles match should be fun.

Wagner’s been booked as a tecnico everywhere outside of Arena Mexico. He’s turned on Mistico when he’s teamed with him, but no one else. I think we’ll know if he’s a long term rudo by that finish (so there’s something redeemable about the match – or maybe it’s just build for Dos Caras Jr. versus Terrible for the Heavyweight Championship Of The World! I’m intrigued by the thought of that match too.

5) el Hijo Del Anibal, Máscara Sagrada, Negro Casas, Negro Navarro b Cien Caras Jr., Enfermero Jr., Hijo de Cien Caras, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr.

Black Terry attacked Fantasma de la Opera, wanting a shot at the Welterweight title. Mascara Sagrada & Negro Navarro want a shot at Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. & Hijo de Cien Caras’s tag titles. Mascara Sagrada & Negro Navarro want a shot, got that? Okay, look at this:

IWRG (THU) 07/19 Arena Naucalpan [IWRG]
1) Misterio Verde & Tortugillo Ninja vs Macho II & Rockero del Diablo
2) Kai, Sasaki, Yamato vs 911, AK47, Fierro [EdM TRIOS]
3) Fantasma de la Opera vs Black Terry [IWRG IC WELTER]
4) Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro, Suicida vs Cyborg, Guardia, Xibalba [IWRG IC TRIOS]
5) Hijo de Cien Caras & Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. vs Hijo de Pierroth & Pierroth [IWRG IC TAG]

Pierroth != Negro Navarro. That’s a lot of title matches. Mexico State trios are vacant going into that match. Los Cerebros/Suicida are the Trios champs. Fantasma de la Opera turned tecnico and the Japanese turned rudo since the last time we really got weekly info on this group.

In Guadalajara, Dr. Wagner Jr. did retain the UWA World Heavyweight Championship.

CMLL AZTECA (WED) 07/25 Arena Xalapa Lineup [El Sol de Xalapa]
1) Jaguar, Linterna Verde vs Guerrero del Infierno, Soldado Anonimo

4) La Sombra, Valiente, Stuka Jr. vs Nitro, Dr. X, Skandalo
5) Mistico, Ultimo Guerrero vs Averno, Dr. Wagner Jr. [pi]

That’s going to suck for Mistico. Article is actually more about the people who run the arena talking about how things have improved much lately (since a negative article about the arena.)

In Notimex, Wagner and UG crow about winning the tag team titles. Mask vs Mask challenge, check. Full show recap from Notimex is here.
