AAA Teasing New U.S. Projects
This week AAA’s Dorian Roldan and Court Bauer teased that “something special” with AAA and the U.S. was coming soon and ESPN boxing announcer Ray Flores said that he was coming to New York this week to work on a AAA project with Roldan and Bauer. AAA announcer Hugo Savinovich confirmed that he was in New York filming a pilot for AAA for a possible show in America.
Chris Masters Blasting AAA on Twitter
For the past couple of weeks former WWE star Chris Masters has been blasting AAA over them not helping him pay any of his medical bills associated with the knee injury he suffered at a AAA TV Taping late last year. AAA nor Konnan have responded to the claims.
Trio Coming to Atlanta Promotion
Atlanta, GA based promotion Mucha Lucha has announced that AAA/Lucha Underground stars Pentagon Jr., Fenix, and Drago will be appearing at their March 13th event in Norcross, Georgia. I would love to make that show but Norcross 3 1/2 hour trip for me and that is barely more than a month before my wedding so I probably shouldn’t make that trip (or should I?).
Lucha Underground 01/09 TV Taping Spoilers Results
1) Steel Cage Match: Cage def. Johnny Mundo
2) Ivelisse def. Tessa Blanchard
3) Fenix def. Jack Evans
4) unknown def. Fenix
5) Cage def. Mascarita Dorada
6) Willie Mack def. Marty The Moth
7) jobber def. Cuervo
8) Sexy Star def. Cobra Moon
* NOTES *
– The guy I got the spoilers from didn’t want to be credited by name because of Lucha Underground’s strict policy about spoilers leaking.
– The Steel Cage Match was bloody as hell and said to have been an amazing match.
– Tessa/Ivelisse didn’t go well at all.
– The guy that beat Fenix after his match with Evans was described to me as a “dude in a red suit” but he couldn’t catch the luchadors name. Match was said to be really good.
– He didn’t know the name of the luchador that beat Cuervo either but described him as a “dude dressed as a jobber (with a) black, purple outfit and a shit body with a valet.”
– The Main Event was said to have been a really crazy match and they even fought up above the arena in the sky walk and hung Sexy Star from it at the end.
– Neither Matanza or Puma King appeared.
AAA 01/22 “Guerra de Titanes” TV Tapings Ciudad de Mexico Lineup
1) Dinastia, Nino Hamburguesa, & Pimpinela Escarlata vs. Gran Apache, Mamba, & Mini Charly Manson

* NOTES *
– No Rey Misterio Jr. or Johnny Mundo though they were originally scheduled for this show, facing each other for the Heavyweight Title.
– The winning team of the Main Event will face each other at “Rey de Reyes” to crown the new Heavyweight Champion. Wagner vs. Clown is the most likely match it seems.
– Pentagon Jr. and Drago are scheduled to be in Europe this weekend so they are off the card unfortunately.

Former La Sombra Debuts in NXT
This past weekend former CMLL star La Sombra debuted for WWE at NXT’s house show on Friday night. He was wrestling under his real name, Manny Andrade (his full name is Manuel “Manny” Alfonso Andrade Oropeza), and wearing the plain white tights he had been wearing for months as Sombra. He was said to have looked pretty good in his debut, a win over developmental wrestler Riddick Moss.
Komatsu and Tanaka Coming to Mexico
CMLL and NJPW announced this week that NJPW youngsters Yohei Komatsu & Sho Tanaka will be heading to Mexico on 01/31 and the two will wrestle as Fujin & Raijin. They will likely spend the rest of the year, or at least most of the year, in Japan like Namajague and Kamaitachi have in past years. Neither have ever appeared in Mexico and have spent their entire careers in New Japan. Tanaka is 27 years old and Komatsu is 26.
