AAA Roundup: Hair vs. Hair bout added to Verano de Escandalo, return to TV in USA

AAA revealed a pair of interesting news items to get fans excited.

The first item was the announcement of a Hair vs. Hair contest for Verano de Escandalo on August 5 in Aguascalientes. Lady Shani will take her feud with Hijo del Tirantes to the next level in a lucha de apuesta.

Blood has been boiling between Shani and Hijo del Tirantes. Shani is fed up with the rudo referee’s crooked treatment during matches. Hijo del Tirantes claims that Shani’s frustration is due to having the hots for him. This bout is no doubt going to deliver a wild time with crazy antics in classic AAA style. Being that Shani’s mask is not on the line, I’d say it is anybody’s game to win.

The full lineup for Verano de Escandalo includes:

  • Fenix, Pentagon Jr., & Taya Valkyrie vs. Hijo del Vikingo, Taurus, & Chik Tormenta
  • Mask vs. Hair: Lady Shani vs. Hijo del Tirantes
  • Psycho Clown, Pagano, & Charly Manson vs. Psicosis, Cibernetico, & Abismo Negro Jr.
  • Laredo Kid vs. Willie Mack vs. Bandido vs. Johnny Caballero
  • AAA World Trios Championship: La Empresa (Puma King, DMT Azul, & Sam Adonis) (c) vs. Nueva Generacion Dinamita (Sanson, Cuatrero, & Forastero)
  • Mr. Iguana, Aramis, & Niño Hamburguesa (with Microman) vs. Jessy, Diva Salvaje, & Dulce Canela
