AAA aiming for the big house.
Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide was founded over twenty years ago and the company has been a home for luchadores and foreigners to travel to and learn the traditional Lucha Libre style of pro wrestling. Two days ago the company presented their 'Verano de Escándalo' event which saw WWE Hall Of Famer Jeff Jarrett defeat Rey Wagner and Rey Mysterio Jr. in a Triple-Threat match to become the new 'AAA Mega Champion'.
'Verano de Escándalo' was held inside of the 'Plaza de Toros La Monumental' which has a capacity of in-between 19,000 and 25,000 depending on the event. 'AAA' will be looking to hit that 20,000 mark in the "Worlds Most Famous Arena" according to PWInsider who is reporting that AAA has Madison Square Garden on hold for a date in September. The site noted that although WWE is known for running events at the Garden the management of the arena are not happy with WWE due to the sports-entertainment company running the majority of their New York events at the Barclays Center. AAA will be the first wrestling company in decades to run an event inside of MSG if it does indeed happen. The report also added that the majority of next year's WrestleMania 35 week-long string of events will emanate from the Barclays.
It was announced yesterday by WWE that former 4-time WWE Champion The Undertaker will be making his return to Madison Square Garden when the company heads back to the historic building next month on the 7th for their 'SummerSlam Heat Wave' tour.
