AAA Posts Rey de Reyes 2013 On YouTube

Asistencia Asesoría y Administración has released their annual Rey de Reyes show, for 2013, on YouTube; the show took place on March 17th in Monterrey, Nuevo León at Plaza de Toros Monumental. Rey de Reyes is one of AAA biggest shows of the year. The importance of the show is proportionate to the importance of WWE’s SummerSlam PPV.

AAA Announces Brand Split

After months of talking on the MLW Radio Podcast and a recent announcement by AAA to work with FactoryMade Ventures to expand AAA’s America prescience  it finally looks like AAA will tour America. While dates have not announced, at Rey de Reyes it was announced AAA would have a brand split coming.

AAA Fusion will be run Joaquin Roldin and Dorian will run AAA Evolucion. Evolucion is RUMORED to be the American brand. On the March 14 MLW Radio Podcast, Konnan talks about the eventual plans to have a new AAA show on El Rey, a bi-lingual hispanic television station to come to American airwaves in 2014. This will likely be the home of Evolucion though details are sketchy at the moment.

The only name that has been truly passed around through the pipeline is El Mesias (mainly cause Konnan mentioned that he is a Puerto Rican citizen and will not need a passport the same way say Cibernetico would as well as him being bi-lingual.) Others that could be assumed are Teddy Hart, Jack Evans and Octagon Jr. (if he does not goto WWE anytime soon) without looking at Mexican talents who have passports and are in good standing.

It will be interesting to see how AAA Evolucion shapes up. I do not see AAA Fusion being much different than how it is currently except for a few wrestlers not being used as they are in America now. As news comes out, we will keep up with it.

AAA Rey de Reyes Results and

AAA held their annual Rey de Reyes  on March 17 out of Plaza de Toros in Monterrey, Mexico.

In the finals of the AAA Fusion title tournament Fenix defeated AAA Cruiserweight champion Juventud Guerrera, Daga and the returning Crazy Boy to become the first AAA Fusion champion.

Sexi Star vacated the Reina de Reinas title last month leading to four qualifying matches leading to a fatal four-way that was held at Rey de Reyes. Fabi Apache beat Mari Apache, Taya Walkyrie and LuFisto to win the fatal four-way and start her second Reina de Reinas title reign.

Texano Jr. successfully defended the AAA title over Blue Demon Jr. Blue Demon Jr. later mad a mask vs. hair challenge for TripleMania. (If this happens color me shocked.)

El Mesias beat Canek and LA Park to win Rey de Reyes. Earlier in the show El Mesias out lasted Heavy Metal, La Parka, Parka Negra, Octagon and Pentagon Jr. to enter the finals while LA Park beat Jack Evans, Villano IV, Psicois, Drago and Chessmans and Canek beat Perro Aguayo Jr., Cibernetico, Electroshock, Silver King & Toscano to enter the finals.

Elsewhere on the show Devil Rocker, Machine Rocker & Soul Rocker beat Monster Clown, Murder Clown and Psycho Clown in a six-man tag match. The AAA Trios titles were not on the line.

AAA Luchadors Getting Health Insurance

Due to professional wrestling being such a high risk sport it’s very difficult to find a company to give an insurance professional wrestlers. Asistencia Asesoría y Administración joins the network of free medical services for the Federal District in supporting both the fighter and their families.

This Friday at AAA offices several wrestlers gathered for such registration accompanied by their relatives. The meeting was also attended by President of the Commission of the City Wrestling, The Phantom. Some of the wrestlers who were there are La Parka, Faby Apache, Drago, Dynasty, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown, The Apache, Psicosis, Atomic Boy, Silver King, Jennifer Blake, Taya, “tufts” Salazar, Lolita, Cynthia Moreno , Phoenix, among others.

“It’s hard to find someone to give you insurance for the high impact activity we do. That is why we appreciate that insurance will give us, I was the first to arrive and therefore was the first registered. I’m glad because if it is sometimes difficult to find someone treats us, but we thank AAA and Wrestling Commission City to give ease to affiliate directly at the desk.” -Faby Apache, after being the first fighter affiliate Triple A.

Former WWE Wrestler, Super Crazy, Wont Sign With CMLL or AAA

Super Crazy is best known for his work in World Wrestling Entertainment. However he’s had success all around the world, working for companies such as CMLL, AAA, NOAH, and many more.

World famous luchador, Super Crazy, was honored by the local government of Hidalgo for his success internationally. He says that he’s had a great career but he still has lots of years left in him. Also he loves working independently because it allows him to work wherever and for whoever he wants to.

Super Crazy has received several offers from Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre and Asistencia Asesoría y Administración but has turned both companies down because being tied to a contract would severely limit his ability to work outside of Mexico. He doesn’t particularly enjoy leaving Mexico but he has to do what’s financially right for himself. Crazy also states that he’s been working on his English so he can work more regularly in the United States to go along with his steady work in Japan for companies such as Pro-Wrestling NOAH.

I wouldn’t expect to see Super Crazy in CMLL, AAA, or any major promotion around the world, on a permanent bases.
