AAA Tijuana 9/30/05
Written By Robert Bihari
Hego Boys vs Locals + Aliens: LOS HEGO BOYS!!!: Well this was the highlight of the day wrestling wise… I watched the first match from the AAA TV Taping in Tijuana on 9/30/05 featuring a new team called Los Hego Boys comprised of Luminoso, Genio Del Aire and Airon Boy. Luminoso wears an outfit sorta like Valiente and is actually built like him too. But he wasn’t the story here, the other two guys were. They were AWESOME! They also had great looks so I’m hoping Pena does something with them. The announcers kept babbling on about Los Cadetes Del Espacio so if Pena creates a new version of the Cadets with these guys – I will become even more of an AAA mark. They only got about 4 minutes of offense combined but Airon Boy was all over the place doing a bunch of neat headscissors while Genio Del Aire did the same but ended his seuqnece with a SPACE FLYING TIGER DROP!!! He got so much height on the backflip portion that he almost landed right down on the ropes!!! Unfortunately the rudos took over way too soon but there was this awesome moment where King Azteca slapped Airon Boy who(while standing still) took a backflip bump and I swear it he wanted to he could have done an extra rotation and landed on his back! He’s gonna be the first guy to take my dream backflip senton bump off a clothesline.:) Unless Jack Evans reads this and beats him to it! Tecnicos all did running somersault planchas and then the rudos turned on each other. Or rather Aliens turned on them and murdered King Azteca in particular. Naturally first thing I am doing tomorrow is watching the Hego Boys match from Mexicali where I hope they get to do more stuff. My only question is where are these guys now? I can’t find them in any of my results past/present. It’d be a shame if Pena abducted them for his personal use.:( Put Pegasso with these three, give them a cool team name + flashy outfits and I think I’ve found the newest guys for me to mark out for constantly.
Billy Boy/Estrellita vs Gran Apache/Tiffany: Loooooooooooong match by AAA standards. At least 20 minutes. I was really starting to hate it by then 10 minute mark as the rudos just kept controlling the match and I was expecting a fluke tecnico roll-up to end it but after the tecnico comeback they actually worked a pretty damn good match. Estrellita got good! She used to really suck from what I remember. Apache was awesome working with both Billy Boy and Estrellita. While watching I remembered it’s no wonder Apache is good working with women b/c in an old Lucha Libre Weekly I read that back in 1992 he was one of only two ‘maestros’ at the time who were willing to train women. The other might have been Blue Panther… my memory is foggy on that. But he and Lady Apache had their own little gym going where he worked with various women that wanted to tryout. Couple of nice dives near the end a really nice finishing sequence. Excellent effort and looking forward to the rematch from Mexicali on the next show.
Noti AAA had an interview with Mosco De La Merced where he promised to form Los Nuevos Vipers. This was taped in September and it’s now February. Where are they?
Oriental/Nautilius/Histeria vs Animaniac/Espia Chino/Angel Negro Jr.: Fun! Nautilius is not one for staying on the mat. He did *3* really nice dives in this short 12 minute or so match. One of them was a killer slingshot corkscrew plancha! Oriental chipped in two dives of his own, as did Histeria. So as usual you can tell this was the typical AAA spotfest which is fun since they stick to one per show. The match ended when Oriental went for a tope suicida but Mazambula ran out to nail him with a chair as he flew through the ropes. The rudos then rolled him inside and pinned him as Histeria/Nautilius chased Mazambula to the back.
Octagon/El Zorro/Triple A vs Charly Manson/Psicosis/Abismo Negro: I thought Triple A was being played by ex-Mascara Sagrada/T.D. but I’m not sure after seeing this. It could have been the guy who used to play Colorman. Ironically enough, Colorman’s claim to fame is he crashed and burned horribly on a dive in each of his two TV appearences. So do you want to guess what Triple A is no known for?:) He was a bloody mess as the entire first 10 minutes of the match were spent on the rudos beating the crap out of the tecnicos. Finally they made their comeback and Octagon did a tope suicida onto Abismo Negro. Triple A then tried the same on Psicosis but got caught in the ropes and seemed to smack his ribs on the edge of the ring while crashing to the outside. Ouch!:/ Doctors and referee came over right away to make sure he was still alive. Psicosis did his part by kicking the poor guy. WOOHOO!:D Manson fouled Zorro *3 times* to win. Overkill? Really disapointing.
Vampiro/Shocker/La Parka Jr. vs Konnan/Nikozuna(that’s what it said)/Paranoia: I don’t know who Paranoia is but I’m guessing some guy from California? He had a huge tattoo on his back kinda like what Rey Jr. has. Usual main event brawl. Shocker and Vampiro ended up brawling amonst themselves into the crowd(yes, I am aware they are on the same team) and Vampiro EVER SO CAREFULLY jumped from about 8 feet up to put Shocker through a table. This left La Parka Jr. all alone so some other AAA tecnicos had to come out and save him. I’m not sure who win. I’m equally not sure if I care.
Eh, the opening three matches were fun enough to make this a reccomended show but only for hardcore AAA fans.
