It’s been a busy last month for AAA, with at least two shows seemingly taking place every weekend (save for last weekend). The only thing the promotion hadn’t delivered yet was a card for their first big show of the summer, Verano de Escandalo…until now! Though AAA hasn’t confirmed it at this time, a poster found online appears to reveal the full card for the Summer of Scandal, with seven matches scheduled for the June 15th show in Merida. Most notable is the semi-main event, which features the Lucha Brothers, AAA Mega Champion Fenix and Pentagon Jr., wrestling The Young Bucks, Matt and Nick Jackson, for the AAA Tag Team Championships.
If this card proves to be legitimate, this will be the third match between the Lucha Brothers and Young Bucks this year following their impromptu match at AAA’s Rey de Reyes in March and their upcoming AAA Tag Team title match at All Elite Wrestling’s Double or Nothing event on May 25th. It will also make Verano de Escandalo the second AAA event to feature AEW talent following Rey de Reyes, which, in addition to the Bucks, featured a segment involving Cody Rhodes. The card may potentially provide a spoiler for the Double or Nothing match, as The Young Bucks are still listed as AAA Tag Team Champions; given that AAA plays fast and loose with their posters however it may also mean nothing.
Of course there are plenty of other matches listed for the show, and as stated the Young Bucks-Lucha Brothers match isn’t even the main event. That honor belongs to a tag match featuring Dr. Wagner Jr. and Psycho Clown taking on Blue Demon Jr. and Taurus, in a match that will continue to build towards Wagner-Blue Demon at Triplemania in August. Meanwhile Psycho’s big rival, Rey Escorpion, will be a few slots down, teaming with fellow Los Mercenarios members Texano Jr. and La Hiedra to battle La Parka, Hijo del Vikingo and Myzteziz Jr. in a continuation of the budding Los Jinetes del Aire-Los Mercenarios rivalry. Other matches include Aerostar, Pagano and Puma King taking on Chessman, Killer Kross and Monsther Clown (as the Aerostar-Monsther feud rolls on), Laredo Kid and Taya taking on Daga and Tessa Blanchard in what could be a show stealer, Mamba and Maximo facing Australian Suicide and AEW’s Sammy Guevara (listed as Sammy G on the poster), a non title triple threat match between Keyra, Lady Shani and Chik Tormenta in the opener and Faby Apache vs. Hijo del Tirantes, in what should be the climax of their never ending, underwhelming feud.
AAA’s Verano de Escandalo will take place on Sunday, June 16th, in Merida, Yucatan and will be streamed live on Twitch. Lucha Central will provide you full coverage of the show, including an update on the card when AAA officially releases it.
