The fact they're still going ahead with Anniversary show is amazingly stupid. But than the empty Arena shows have been not very smart given we have dives like these

A reminder that AAA is going live on their social media accounts (Facebook? Twitch? who knows) Saturday for their 3rd taping of the day at 8PM CST I believe.

For added content, Big Mami is on TikTok.

AAA is live now, not sure how I got the day wrong. The set up is pretty good, but not sure what to expect for people on their 7th match of the weekend.

So last night I saw tweets popping up about "AAA US suing AAA" and figured it was something boring relating to Mil Muertes showing up in MLW.

I was wrong. So very wrong.

http://www.thecubsfan.com/cmll/2020/12/10/lucha-libre-aaa-mexico-has-been-sued-by-lucha-libre-aaa-us-an-existential-crisis/

quote:

I’m not a lawyer, I’m just trying to read and make sense of this. The crux of the argument

There are three entities.
Promociones Antonio Pena is the actual Mexican lucha libre promotion, owned completely by Dorian Roldan and Marisela Pena
Lucha Libre AAA is a company holding the trademark rights. It was formed by Roldan & Pena, and Alex Garcia & Antonio Cue became outside investors and co-owners at some point.
Lucha Libre FMV (another layer to the onion) is owned jointly by Lucha Libre AAA and FactoryMade Ventures (that’s where John Fogelman comes in)
Lucha Libre FMV was at first licensing the rights to the AAA trademarks.
Lucha Libre FMV hit “contractual milestones in 2014”, which caused them to switch from borrowing the trademarks for a certain time and to Lucha Libre FMV owning all Lucha Libre AAA trademarks (current and future) for all time.
Everything AAA has or will ever create is owned by Lucha Libre FMV according to this lawsuit, except for a carveout to allow PAP to continue to use those trademarks in Mexico. Usage in any other country belongs exclusively to FMV.
The lawsuit includes both the licensing and reassignment documents, with all the signatures you’d expect.
It’s not clear what those milestones are, though safe bet they had to do with the creation of Lucha Underground.
Lucha Libre FMV says they’ve paid PAP $700K for those rights so far.
The IP agreement says PAP is owed 5% of the Lucha Libre FMV profits, and later a minimum year guarantee. If I’m adding up the minimum correctly, PAP should’ve gotten $1.05 mil by the end of 2020. Maybe I’m not adding it up correctly?

Good chance it has to do with the lawsuit.

Following up on Caristico recruiting Blue Demon Jr and Tineblas to a small progressive party it looks like they are all running for mayor of different municipalities.

quote:

" My party is called progressive social networks, I am trying to become mayor of the GAM, there is Tinieblas for Venustiano Carranza and Carístico for Cuauhtémoc ", commented Blue Demon about his candidacy and that of his colleagues in the same positions.

A potential Lucha Underground reboot from Court Bauer and MLW, alternatively a faction in MLW, either way a beautiful disaster approaches.

MLW just debuted Mil Muertes under his LU name and gimmick, so this might tie into that.

Did Court buy up the LU rights when nobody was looking? I thought they had a strict clampdown on who could use gimmicks they created. Penta's changed his name like 20 times because LU/AAA owned "Pentagon Jr." and even AEW had to stop calling him that recently. Did something change?

AAA would (prior to the lawsuit) been perfectly fine with Penta being called Pentagon Jr because they would get merchandise royalties. AEW/Penta and Fenix changed names for AEW so it was something they owned as wrestlers.
