The third time was a charm for AAA, as their highly anticipated Rey de Reyes show finally happened Wednesday night after several event reschedules. Rey de Reyes was originally set for Sunday night before being postponed until Monday, then finally Wednesday.
Due to the change in date a new venue had to be found, and the card changed. Marquee superstar and AAA Champion Alberto El Patron was scheduled to face Lucha Underground’s Brian Cage at the event, but was forced from the show due to scheduling conflicts. El Patron will defend the AAA title in a match next Wednesday on Lucha Underground.
Another major selling point of the event was the first post-WWE match for Rey Mysterio. The three time world champion was featured in a tag match with the original Sin Cara, who now goes by the name of Myzteziz in Mexico. Mysterio’s entrance was grand, as he was flanked by kids wearing Rey Mysterio masks.
Lucha Underground fans will recognize several names on the show, as Pentagon Jr, Angelico, Blue Demon Jr, El Texano Jr, Super Fly, Drago, Fenix, Mascarita Sagrada and Pimpinela Escarlata were all also featured on the show. King Cuerno and Mil Mueres were also on the card, although under different gimmicks than their Lucha Underground personas.
