AAA Roundup: Spider-Man meme come to life, John Morrison enemy list, more!

AAA is fresh off Rey de Reyes last week to open the 2022 season, and the action won’t stop anytime soon. Upcoming cards have been announced, John Morrison has a list of enemies, Microman is being bullied, and there are two Spider-Mans running wild.

We’ll kick off with a bit of wackiness. AAA has been building their own Marvel universe with popular comic book characters as luchadores. The idea is to combine powers for merchandising. To give a taste of past insanity, the Incredible Hulk (El Furioso) broke through a wall to save the day and stand up to Brian Cage in a Thanos mask (Terror Purpura) at Triplemania XXIX.

The amusing hijinks resumed for Rey de Reyes. Unfortunately, the one match not to air during the PPV broadcast was the Marvel partnership. However, this image is too good not to share. AAA recreated the Spider-Man (Aracno) double identity meme.

Enjoy the original source of the meme for a classic cartoon chuckle.

John Morrison debuted a new name in John Superstar at Rey de Reyes, but he failed to bring home the AAA Megacampeonato from Hijo del Vikingo. In a post-match interview with Mas Lucha, the Mayor of Slamtown blamed the rainy conditions for his defeat.

Johnny: I’m Johnny Superstar, not Johnny Drip Drip. No more wetness, alright? The wet guy is not the best guy. Because today was all slippery and slipping and sliding. It’s not easy to wrestle when you’re not used to those kind of conditions. Like, everyone on this roster is, apparently. What happened today? Vikingo got lucky.

It doesn’t sound like Johnny will be one-and-done for his current run with AAA. He listed future opponents on his enemy list. The next step is to get back in ring with Vikingo. Johnny can add Laredo Kid, Bandido, Lady Shani, Pentagon, and Fenix as well. He plans to beat the crap out of all of them.

Former CMLL star Microman made a surprise debut during Rey De Reyes. He aligned with La Empresa, but it looks like they are going to make him work for membership by using him for chores, such as washing their boots and carrying robes. DMT Azul was angry that Microman helped LA Park during their match.

The fans love Microman, so it will be satisfying once he tires of their bullying and kicks some ass.

AAA has a busy week coming up with shows on March 5, 12, and 13. The March 5 show will be in Ciudad Madero, Tamaulipas.
