2014 Guerra de Titanes preview

Guerra de Titanes is tonight at 6pm CT, and they’re usually pretty good at starting . It’s only legally available on conventional PPV.  It should turn up on TV in January though I’m not sure about the timing. I’ll attempt to do some sort of live results on Twitter.

1) Dinastía © vs Mini Charly Manson [AAA MINI]

This will work good as opener; Diniasta is all about quick action and that works for this spot. These two have worked well together at other times. The finish might be more about balancing the rest of the show – there’s going to be a lot of other titles change, but there’s also going to be a lot of rudo wins, and either thing might affect the finish. I figure Dinastia just keeps being champion.

2) Ivelisse & Faby Apache vs Sexy Star & Taya Valkyrie

Probably time for the rudas to get one back, since Ivelisse has won both times so far. Whatever the next big match is here is still a while away so it’s more about having a good match than an outcome. They didn’t quite have a good match in DF, maybe this will go better.

3) Fénix & Myzteziz vs Angélico & Jack Evans © and Joe Lider & Pentagón Jr. [AAA TAG]

The idea of handing over the tag team division to Myzteziz is a good one. It’ll add value to these championships, give AAA another feud they can move in and out of the main event, and keeps Myzteziz special instead of just being the odd main out in the Mega title/Perros storyline. I’m just not sure if they’ll end up winning the titles here. The top two matches look to be happy results and this is one where AAA could more easily push off the big win for another day without damaging the tecnicos. Pentagon & Lider picking up the titles in some Perros del Mal chicanery, laying the ground work for the tease of the same later on, fits the night.

4) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown © vs Averno, Chessman, Cibernético [AAA TRIOS]

This feud almost seems to have taken a step back to Konnan demanding the Hell Brothers sign up for his side. Cibernetico has laughed off the idea of joining La Sociedad, and the drama is more in how they’ll respond. Costing the Hell Brothers this match is a good start. It’d also explain why they’ve done this feud so many times on TV already if both sides were just doing a one show program and moving on to other sides afterwards. There’s been nothing about this feud which makes me want to see more of it.

(This also seems a good place to ask “what happened to the Electroshock storyline?” Last time we saw him on TV, he was contemplating retiring. He’s still on spot shows, but did his TV character retire? Did it just go in the “Billy el Malo’s protege” waste bucket of forgotten ideas? Could he come back with a new look tonight?)

5) Aerostar vs Súper Fly [mask]

It would be the ultimate troll move to people who read this website for Aerostar to get a real TV push only to lose his mask. I don’t think AAA is in the business of being trolls, but there is a little reason to be concerned. The good guy usually loses falls in every match but the last one in AAA feuds (see the next match) and Aerostar actually won the last match. Still, Super Fly’s back on TV to have a good match and to lose his mask, and both figure to happen here. Super Fly’s moved on an Aerostar dive and tried to set him ablaze with his own fire can in the buildup, and at least one of those figure to happen again here.

6) El Patrón Alberto vs Texano Jr. © [AAA HEAVY]

This should be a coronation. AAA will stand for Alberto Alberto Alberto. There might be some difficulty down the road with this: if Alberto is working as many places as he says he’s working next year, AAA might have as much problems getting dates on him as they seemed to have with Blue Demon Jr. That’s a problem for another day; there’s no way Albert loses all the matches in this feud unless he’s retiring tomorrow. Texano’s twice escaped Alberto’s armbar and uppercut fouled him, so that’s what Alberto has to survive here.

12/02 AAA TV Results (Zapopan) – Guerra de Titanes

photo by Black Terry Jr.

AAA TV (SUN) 12/02/2012 Auditorio Benito Juarez, Zapopan, Jalisco [AAA (R de Rudo), AAA Photos (Deportivo), Black Terry Jr. (flickr), Estrellas del Ring, Informador, MT (1-5), MT (6), SL491]
***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.

AAA Guerra de Titanes: 2011-12-16

taped 2011-12-16 @ Estadio Hermanos Serdán de Puebla, Puebla

files:
match 3 (partial) match 4 match 5 match 6 match 7 match 8 match 9

recap

I thought this was not as good as expecting. There were matches worked in styles I didn’t like, and at least one of those were bad by any measure. Wagner vs Park was not a particuarlly good or memorable match, and this show really could’ve used one.
