All ELITE WRESTLING ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH RENOWNED MEXICAN WRESTLING PROMOTION “LUCHA LIBRE AAA”
— Fans Can Look Forward to Cross-Promotions and Iconic Match-ups –
LAS VEGAS (Feb. 8, 2019) – All Elite Wrestling continued to shift and reinvent the wrestling landscape with last night’s DOUBLE OR NOTHING ticket on-sale announcement party, which was jam-packed with new signing announcements and debuts, special appearances, and intense showdowns. A highlight among highlights was Cody’s announcement that AEW is entering into a partnership with Lucha Libre AAA, one of Mexico’s most famed Wrestling Promotions. Known for its high-flying masked wrestlers, Lucha Libra AAA promotes numerous signature events and tournaments each year, most notably the summertime “Triplemania.”
In the coming year, fans can look forward to talent trading between All Elite Wrestling and Lucha Libre AAA featuring exciting match-ups with top talent from both Promotions.
“AAA’s mission of showcasing the best Lucha Libre with an emphasis on modern stars stands right up next to us in our efforts to provide the best sports-centric pro wrestling show,” said Cody, AEW Executive Vice President.
“The first thing is we want to congratulate Tony, Cody, Kenny and The Young Bucks for this great initiative and for this great company All Elite Wrestling,” said Dorian Roldan, General Manager of Lucha Libre AAA. “I know that you are going to change the world of wrestling. AAA has never been about what’s conventional or predictable, just like our fans who are always about wanting something above and beyond from their wrestling and taking their experiences to the limit. It would take a concept as bold as AEW to earn our attention and respect, and that’s what has happened. AEW is what fans want and wrestling needs. We’re in with AEW, and we’re going to shake things up with exchanges of talent and lots of surprises.”
Following the partnership announcement at the DOUBLE OR NOTHING party, AAA stars Pentagon and Fenix, The Lucha Brothers, appeared and attacked The Young Bucks, and Penta injured Matt Jackson with his dangerous Package Piledriver finishing move on the stage. In addition to the clash between these top tag teams, Kenny Omega debuted at the party as the newest member of the AEW roster and an Executive Vice President, only to be interrupted by a hostile Chris Jericho, leading to a wild pull-apart brawl. After the rivals were separated by security, the coaching staff and other wrestlers, Omega returned to conclude the party by wishing the fans his signature “goodbye and good night.”
AEW also announced that fans can register at AllEliteWrestling.com up until Sunday, Feb. 10 at 7pm PST to be eligible for a pre-sale opportunity for tickets to the DOUBLE OR NOTHING event, taking place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 25. Pre-sale will begin on Monday, Feb. 11 at 12pm PST, and tickets will go on sale to the general public starting on Wednesday, Feb. 13 at 9am PST via AXS.com.
