Project Push Fuerza Aerea & La Militia

Continuing to track the progress of this new AAA plan...

First up - a quote from yours truly in a post 11 days ago:

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that was straight from Konnan's mouth since he loves to come off as the guy who is all about pushing youngsters until it comes time to actually push them of course.

To further prove my point: The September 1st edition of Figure Four Daily had Konnan and Steve Sims on as guests. During the course of the show there was a shocking revelation - according to Konnan the reason Super Fly didn't get over was b/c "someone" (hinting at Electro Shock) decided not to sell for him and only give him fluke pinfalls which meant nothing longterm. This is of course something I pointed out 11 days ago as well. However isn't it quite strange this only came out now? On previous appearences on the same radio show Konnan mentioned numerous times that the reason the Super Fly push didn't work is b/c he had no charisma and couldn't talk. This begs the obvious question - why are we changing our story now?

Answer: Konnan is looking for a re-do. I admire that. I really do. I'm all for giving these guys the push they rightfully deserve. But be a man. Admit you screwed up the first time and stop giving multiple excuses as to why the push didn't work the first time around while trying to distance yourself from having anything to do with it. The difference between a good booker and a great booker is a great booker admits his mistakes and learns from them. Which are you, Konnan?

Of course this will end up being a moot point b/c as I stated 11 days ago - Konnan is all for pushing the youngsters until it comes time to actually do it. He'll talk a great game on Bryan Alvarez's radio show b/c he knows that's what the listeners want to hear. But when he's at the next AAA booking meeting there will be no suggestion of putting Aero Star and Laredo Kid over La Hermandad or having Billy Boy score a clean pinfall on an already injured Mesias.

With that said... let's see how the elevation of La Fuerza Aerea and La Militia continued on the September 5th TV Taping in Pachuca...

4) Chris Stone, Decnnis, Tigre Cota b Aerostar, Laredo Kid, Súper Fly

Militia finally got new military outfits. As usual, new gear = win. Decnnis offered a spot in the Milita to the Air Force, but Laredo Kid said no on behalf of the team. We really could use a Super Fly reaction to this, but there’s no mention of it in the recaps.

The Good:

- New matching outfits. This was definitely needed to seperate the rudos from their old undercard personas.

- The teams likely had an excellent match with each other.

The Bad:

- Facing each other on every taping will do nothing to elevate either team. They need fresh matches against guys higher up than they were and they need wins over them. Super Calo and La Parka didn't get anywhere in WCW by facing each other 42 times even if the matches were excellent.

- Super Fly's quasi-rudo turn not being explained. (though maybe it will on TV)

Overall: A standard follow-up to the Naucalpan taping. The real test will come this month as we see if the teams keep being matched up against each other in meaningless matches or if they are given the chance to move up and be taken seriously. Also, the lineup for Heroes Inmoraltes will be announced soon and it will be interesting to see if either of these teams will be making an appearence. (My guess: Either a ladder match or they'll open the show against each other.)
