Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews
Finally got around to watching TripleMania XX, overall I thought it was a very good show with its fair share of solid matches. Let me start by saying that I hope LA Park never wears that outfit again, the undercard was easy to sit through the production was damn good and I really liked Lider/Psicosis, probably more than others. The AAA title match was chaotic fun, but the finish was kind of weak. Wagner Jr./Ano 2000 Jr. was a damn fine main event that was drama filled as one would expect. It's nuts how over Wagner Jr. is.
I know it was reported a couple of days ago but CMLL is back at their antics again with the whole Sarita deal, people give flack for WWE controlling their talent but CMLL can get pretty low when it comes to controlling their contracted talent as well. Unless they work something out, Dark Angel may be primarily stationed in Japan for the foreseeable future.

- Surprisingly nothing major on the Anniversary Show but there could be some great matches on there especially with the Mask Match.
Have to agree, nothing really stands out as OMG must see however you have a solid line up of matches that has the potential to deliver big time.
AAA 09/16 TV Taping Lineup
1) Dinastia & Mascarita Dorada vs. Mini Charly Manson & Mini Histeria
2) Cuervo & Fabi Apache vs. Gran Apache & Mari Apache
3) El Alebrije, Fenix, & Samurai del Sol vs. Devil Rocker, Machine Rocker, & Soul Rocker

So fucking happy once I heard that Samuray del Sol would be working for AAA with a potential push in mind. Words can't describe my markdom for him, I know that they're thinking about changing his gimmick but I actually hope they don't but oh well he'll make anything work. The TV tapings look fun as hell with some solid TV matchups.
