AAA Roundup: Lucha Bros tag title defense, Hijo del Perro Aguayo classics, more!

Welcome to the AAA Roundup. Let’s catch up on the news from the past week and matches from Nacemos Para Luchar.

We’ll start with bonus bouts featuring Hijo del Perro Aguayo. AAA posted three matches on their YouTube channel in honor of his tragic death on March 21, 2015.

Hijo del Perro Aguayo versus Myzteziz (here) was a bloody bout with the use of foreign objects. It is interesting to see the crowd go wild for rudo Perro. It gives a glimpse into how big of a star he was. Myzteziz is current CMLL star Caristico and formerly known as original Sin Cara in WWE.

Hijo del Perro Aguayo wrestled in the 2012 Rey de Reyes four-way elimination final (here). He competed against LA Park, Jack Evans, and Hector Garza. This bout had plenty of exciting moves. There was also a surprise appearance from Jeff Jarrett and Karen Jarrett.

The most important of the bonus bouts is Hijo del Perro Aguayo versus Cibernetico (here) in hair vs hair at Triplemania XXI. Neither man had lost their hair before. The fight was bloody with chairs and wood. It also had a doctor thrown through a table and a referee taking a pildedriver.

I don’t think any of the three matches will wow you, but they are entertaining enough to put on your screen. It is also a good way to get a taste of Hijo del Perro Aguayo.

In other news, the TV taping in Torreon, Coahuila on March 28 has been cancelled due to coronavirus concerns. This was the card as advertised:

  • Rush, LA Park, Bestia del Ring vs Poder del Norte
  • Psycho Clown, Pentagon, Fenix vs Rey Escorpion, Averno, Texano
  • Latin American Championship: Daga (c) vs Rey Horus vs Laredo Kid vs Dinastia
  • Hijo del Vikingo, LA Park Jr., Hijo de LA Park vs Parka Negra, Dave the Clown, Australian Suicide
  • Mascarita Sagrada, Pimpinela Escarlata, Dulce Canela vs La Hiedra, Demus, Lady Maravilla
  • Big Mami, Laredo Boy, Drago Kid vs Latigo, Keyra, Parkita Negra

Two matches in particular stick out to my eye. Los Ingobernables against Poder del Norte would have been fire. Poder del Norte is one of the best trios teams in the world today. It would have been interesting to see how they stack up against AAA’s most dominant faction at the moment.

The other bout I would have been excited about is Daga’s defense of the Latin American Championship. The odds are that he would have retained, but his three challengers are extremely talented in the ring. That probably would have been the match of the night.

Hopefully we get those matches in the future. Speaking of future matches, Rush has a marvelous idea. After Kenny Omega defended the AAA Megacampeonato on AEW Dynamite, Rush threw his name in the ring as a rival.

Hey, AAA. Make this match, please.

Let’s jam through two episodes of Nacemos Para Luchar. This session came from Tonala, which is a suburb of Guadalajara, Jalisco. The best match of the bunch was the Lucha Bros defending their tag titles in a three-way. I don’t see a separate video for that match. It is the main event of part 1 starting at 32:15. The women’s three-way with La Hiedra, Lady Maravilla, and Lady Shani (here) was also very entertaining.

Nacemos Para Luchar: Tonala, part 1

Part 1 (here) featured the Lucha Bros defending the AAA tag titles.

Aramis, Mascarita Sagrada, & Niño Hamburguesa defeated Latigo, Draztick Boy, & Demus. Flippy goodness. The finish came down to Hamburguesa and Draztick. Draztick was no match for Hamburguesa’s meat. He was crushed with a flying splash to lose.

After the match, Los Ingobernables came to the ring to put the boots to Niño Hamburguesa and Mascarita Sagrada. LA Park threw a bucket of water at Hamburguesa then hit him with a chair. Mascarita was slammed onto the announce table and also pressed out of the ring onto Hamburguesa.

Parka Negra & Superfly defeated Argenis & Arez and LA Park Jr. & Hijo de LA Park in a three-way. The bout had a steady flow of one-on-one action hitting sweet moves. Superfly took out three luchadores with a moonsault to the floor. That left rivals Parka Negra and Hijo de LA Park to square off for the finish. Hijo hit a Code Red for a two count. Parka caught a springboard crossbody and turned it into a swinging slam for a two count. In the end, Parka yanked off Hijo’s mask behind the referee’s back for the winning pin.

AAA Tag Team Championship: Fenix & Pentagon retained against Laredo Kid & Puma King and Taurus & Australian Suicide in a three-way. High-octane bout. My favorite parts early were Fenix corkscrewing and Taurus powerhousing. For the closing sequence, Taurus crushed Puma with a rodeo driver off the apron through a table. Pentagon took out Laredo with a package piledriver on the apron. Australian Suicide had momentum against Fenix after a low-blow behind the referee’s back. Australian went high for a moonsault. Two count on the pin. Australian went up top again. This time Pentagon was there to kick him. Fenix rose with a jumping uppercut then a Mexican musclebuster to win.

After the match, Los OGT’s ambushed the Lucha Bros. They put a beating on the brothers to make a statement that they want tag gold. Averno broke a broom over Pentagon’s back to close the show.

Nacemos Para Luchar: Tonala, part 2

Part 2 (here) featured a pretty solid women’s three-way and a Trios title defense from Jinetes del Aire.

La Hiedra defeated Lady Shani and Lady Maravilla in a three-way. Rey Escorpion was ringside to cheat for Hiedra. This was supposed to be a three-way singles bout, but it turned into a double-team on Shani. For the finish, Hiedra distracted the referee so Rey Escorpion could attack Shani with a package piledriver. Maravilla flew in for a fog splash to Shani. Maravilla and Hiedra had a double cover on Shani to win. I believe the official decision went to Hiedra for unknown reasons.

Jinetes del Aire defeated Averno, Chessman, & Rey Escorpion. The rudos got wild by beating up the tecnicos all over the place. The Jinetes took control with a trio of dives. They did their thing from there. It is always a treat to watch Hijo del Vikingo, Octagon Jr., and Myzteziz Jr. with so many flippy moves. For the finish, Chessman missed a backward corkscrew. Octagon sprang up for a split-legged moonsault to win.

After the match, Taurus and Hiedra put the boots to the Jinetes. Rey Escorpion demanded a Trios title shot right then. Vikingo accepted on behalf of his squad.

AAA Trios Championship: Jinetes del Aire retained against Los Mercenarios. This was a quick match. Los Mercenarios stomped the Jinetes at the start. The Jinetes took over with a springboard moonsault from Myzteziz to Rey Escorpion on the floor, a tope con hilo from Octagon to Taurus, and an inverted 450 splash from Vikingo to Hiedra for the win.

No DQ: Los Ingobernables defeated Pagano, Murder Clown, & Monster Clown. This match did not have the slickest of execution in maneuvers. Los Ingobernables used chairs early to make Pagano and Monster bleed. Murder had his mask ripped so bad that he had to turn it sideways and rip an eye hole to continue. Near the end, Chessman came in to bodyslam Pagano off the entrance stage. Los Ingobernables used their numbers advantage as LA Park speared Monster to win.

We’ll close with Aerostar’s first tope sonico.

The first dive of the tope sonico that was made with great distance, hands glued to the body and I went until the 4th row. Listening to the public scream and applaud with emotion was incredible. A great memory to do this dive to my professor Abismo Negro.

Cool story from Aerostar to wrap up the AAA Roundup.
