AAA on Galavision
By: Xavier Hernandez
Show aired on: 08/16/2008
The announcers welcome us to the show from Monterrey. They show the usual video from lasr week's show. Konnan continues to show up in tapings, even though he is suspended, the Legion was defeated by AAA, and Zorro couldn't wrestle. Mesias battled Vampiro once again, and of course the Hell Brothers are divided for now. For this show, there will be a ROYAL RUMBLE match (they call it a "Russian Roullette", but it has the RR rules). The winner will become the #1 contender to Cibernetico's AAA title.
1) Tito Santana, Rio Bravo Tigre Cota & Escorpion Negro vs. Javi, Kevin, Ricky & Baby Rap
-First Fall: Again, this is a match of AAA's youngest talent. The heels begin the early group attack on the tecnicos. The tecnocos make the comeback, and now they apply the group attack on the heels. The Barrios use a skateboard to punish the sensible zone of Bravo. Ricky does a spectacular Moonsault on Escorpion, who was outside. In the ring, Javi uses a modified Crossface to make Tito submit.
Winners: Javi, Kevin, Ricky & Baby Rap
-In-Ring Segment: Zorro comes to the ring, and complains about the Rumble match. He says it's not fair that the winner gets a shot at the AAA title. Zorro wants to know who was the creator of the joke, but realizes it was Joaquin roldan. Zorro claims he is still the #1 contender. Roldan arrives to the ring, to tell Zorro that he's not allowed to compete tonight. Roldan says he banned Zorro, because he is still injured. Roldan wants proof that Zorro is medically cleared to compete. Zorro says he's not scared of Roldam, so he wants a replacement of equal weight and category: Konnan! (I had to put together this segment, because it was split into 5 parts)
2) AAA Mini Championship (Qualifying Match #1)
Mini Histeria vs. Mascarita Sagrada
Prematch Comments: Both men bow to take the title, to prove that they are the best.
-First Fall: Histeria begins with hard chops and kicks on Mascarita. Histeria misses a corner clothesline, and Mascarita takes advantage of this. Histeria lands outisde, and Mascarita does a Springboard Crossbody on him. School Boy by Histeria, only for a two count. Powerbomb by Histeria, for another two count. Mascarita surprises Histeria with an awesome Sunset flip, and the three count is made.
Winner: Mascarita Sagrada
3) AAA Mini Championship (Qualifying Match #2)
Mini Abismo Negro vs. La Parkita
Prematch Comments: Both men also claim they will win the title.
-First Fall: Both men start with hard takedowns on each other. Parkita uses Headscissors to toss Abismo out, and finishes him with a suicide dive. Hurricanrana by Abismo for a two count. Parkita lands outisde, and Abismo hits a Diving Crossbody on him. Sambo suplex by Abismo, for yet another two. Parkita tries to slam abismo, but the heel counters with a Cross Armbreaker, and the submission occurs.
Winner: Mini Abismo Negro
-More promotion for "luchalibreaaa.com"
-The Guapos claim to have a surprise, so it could be a new member.
-Jesus Zuniga interviews Roldan. He discusses the Konnan situation, and how he sued the company for being suspended. Roldan agrees that Konnan appears, as long as he is scheduled for a match. If he shows up and he's not slated in a match, then Roldan will take matters into his own hands.
-More hype for the return of Gronda.
-Another reminder to bring keys for the tapings.
*Pretaped Segment: Pirata Morgan talks with his kids about how undeserving people get inside the ring. Dancers and strippers like Elegido and Alan Stone will be finished, because the Piratas will clean the company. For the Piratas "Today is a good day to die".
4) Los Piratas (Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan Jr. & Hijo del Pirata) vs. Elegido, Gato Eveready & Aerostar
-First Fall: The Piratas immediately attack Elegido upon his arrival. Every tecnico is attacked individually by the heels. The tecnicos make the comeback with aerial attacks. Hijo launches Gato to the outside, but the tecnico spins to hit Morgan Jr. with a Corkscrew attack. Hijo lands outside, and Aerostar uses a sick Sprinboard Back attack to finish him. In the ring, Elegido uses la Casita on Pirata for a two. Pirata lands outisde, and Elegido goes for a suicide dive, but the referee makes him fall. Elegido pushes the referee, and Pirata rolls himover with a lowblow.
Winners: Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan Jr. & Hijo del Pirata
*Pretaped Segment: Elvis Porky is still crying about the betrayal of his brother, but his partners cheer him up. Alebrije says he ran out of ideas to cheer Porky up. On the other hand, the clowns brag about their undefeated streak of 163-0 (holy cow, when did they win so many matches?)
5) Psycho Circus (Zombie, Killer & Psycho Clown) vs. Brazo de Plata, El Angel & Alebrije (w/Cuije)
-First Fall: Typical clowns match. Clowns immediately dominate the tecnicos, tecnicos make a short comeback, Porky is pinned by Psycho with a plancha, and it's 164-0. (sorry, but this match didn't do anything to me, pure squash!)
Winners: Zombie, Killer & Psycho Clown
6) Electroshock & Hart Foundation 2.0 (Teddy Hart & Jack Evans) vs. Chessman, Crazy Boy & Ultimo Gladiador
-First Fall: Crazy and Evans open the match with very athletic moves. Hart and Gladiador enter the ring, and Hart uses hard kicks on the MP. Chessman tags in, but he is distracted by Hart's gorgeous manager. The heels start the triple team attack on the tecnicos, and the Harts do aerial maneuvers, supported with Electro's power moves. Hart's manager hits Gladiador with her shoe, and the heels continue their assault. The tecnicos finally make the comeback with double team moves. Crazy tries the Package Piledriver, but Evans counters it, and Chessman accidentally spears Crazy. The Harts capitalize to pin Crazy with a Corkscrew Elbow, and the 630 Senton.
Winners: Electroshock, Teddy Hart & Jack Evans
*Prematch Comments: Backstage, Zorro is very pissed off because he can't compete. Konnan calls him the "cerebral assasain" (no, he's not HHH), and asks him to calm down. Alna is looking at himself in a mirror, until Parka interrupts him. Both men thank each other for their support, and bow that they won't let any Legion guy win the Rumble. Mesias talks with Ozz, about how he's being dsicriminated again. he should be #1 contender, and tells Ozz that he must help him win the match, because Ozz is the slave of Mesias, whether he likes it or not.
7) Russian Roullette ("Mexican Royal Rumble" fits better)
Participants: Mesias, La Parka, Dark Ozz, Black Abyss, Alan Stone, Joe Lider, Konnan, Chessman, Head Hunter & Kenzo Suzuki
Rules: Simple, two guys start the match, and every 1:30, a new and fresh guy enters the ring. To be eliminated, the opponent must me tossed over the top rope, and both feet must touch the floor. The winner gets a shot at Cibernetico for the AAA title, at the next supercard "Verano de Escandalo"
-Match: Mesias and Parka are first, and they attack each other for a minute and a half. Ozz is next, and he aids Mesias in the beating of Parka. Abyss enters the ring, and he tries to make an alliance with Mesias, but it doesn't work. Alan enters the ring, and tosses Abyss out of the ring. Lider is next, but he is attacked by La Secta. Ozz gets in the ropes, and Parka eliminates him. Zorro tries to enter, but the referees don't let him enter the ring. the Konnan (Zorro's replacement) arrives to the ring. Roldan arrives, and orders Alan and Parka to eliminate Konnan. Chessman is next, and he attacks everyone in sight. Hunter enters the ring, and he dominates the match (Viscera style). Parka, Alan, Lider and Mesias team up to eliminate Hunter. Mesias gets closer and closer, but he can't be eliminated. Kenzo is the last man to arrive, and he delivers hard slaps on the tecnicos. Alan climbs the top, but he is eliminated by Mesias. Kenzo suplexes Lider over the top, and he's out. Parka clotheslines Kenzo out of the ring, so no more Legion guys. Mesias removes Parka's mask, and he eliminates the kids' idol. Chessman tries a 450 Splash, but he misses, and Mesias spears him. Mesias tosses Chessman, and celebrates. Chessman is not eliminated yet, but when Mesias realizes it, he is tossed out of the ring by Chessman.
-Aftermath: Cibernetico arrives to the ring for a handshake, but Chessman refuses and removes the HB shirt. Ciber tells Chessman that if he wants the title, then Ciber will defend it with pleasure. Apocalypsis Ahora!
FINAL COMMENTS: Overall, the best show since TripleMania. I liked the Rumble match, but they should have cut the clowns match, to make the Rumble longer, and add at least 5 more guys. It's amazing to me that out of the clowns' streak of 164-0, only about 20 matches have been on TV. The idea of a Mini title is good, but this division is way behind CMLL's division of Minis. I didn't get the name of Hart's hot manager, so if anyone recognize her, please let me know.
