Vampiro Says Lucha Libre AAA TripleMania Taking Place In 2020 Could Backfire

Although Lucha Libre AAA's TripleMania XXVIII show is being planned to take place some time in 2020, Vampiro isn't so sure that is a good idea.

Vampiro, who also works in AAA, spoke with Andrew Thompson of POST Wrestling and spoke about AAA looking to stage the event this year. Originally, the show was going to take place on August 22 at Arena Ciudad de México, but was postponed due to the pandemic. In a virtual press conference, AAA owner Dorian Roldan officially announced that TripleMania XXVIII would no longer happen on that date but stated that he is trying to salvage the event and hopes to have it happen soon.

Vampiro says there is a lot of money involved with that show, but that fan safety should be of the utmost importance given the current global climate and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. 

“I don’t see it. There’s too much money involved to do that event and they rely heavily on sponsors for that. That’s one thing. The date has already passed, that’s another thing, fan safety. Even if you put on an event like that, I think it would backfire because the fans would go, but 90 percent of them would look down on it because you’re not playing on the team. The world needs to get better first so I’m pretty sure — I actually think it’s good the fans have a rest from seeing the same old guys doing the same old things," Vampiro said.

Elaborating on that last point, Vampiro said it will be good for both the wrestlers and the fans to have a break as it would give the company time to reinvigorate itself with new presentation and new storylines. Vampiro said rushing back will hurt the product more than help it. 

"The guys are gonna come back reinvigorated, I believe it’s a good break and you’ll have the chance to reset everything and you come up with new graphics, new looks, new music, new storylines and just come back stronger with a new version of the product. I think it’s actually going to be better. If they rushed it and did an event this year just because of their ego, I believe that would be more detrimental than it would be positive for sure," Vampiro said.
