AAA, the world’s leading Lucha Libre organization, announced that its biggest event of the year, TripleMania, will air live on pay-per-view in the United States and Canada. The event has a special start time of 7 p.m. EST / 6 p.m. CST on Sunday, Aug. 9.
The event will be available on iN DEMAND (including all major American cable systems and Rogers Communications in Canada), DirecTV, Dish Network as well as Bell Canada Satellite. A full list of U.S./Canadian carriers can be found at:
The event will feature English commentary and has a suggested price of $29.95 in High-Definition and $19.95 in Standard.
Since 1992, TripleManía has been the stage for some of Lucha Libre’s most spectacular rivalries and matches and this year is no different. For the first time, Rey Mysterio Jr. will wrestle Myzteziz in a dream match between two of the most gifted and iconic masked luchadores of this era.
In a match fueled by national pride, AAA Mega Champion Alberto El Patron defends the honor of Mexico against America’s Brian Cage in a hair match.
“We hope that all of our viewers will enjoy the high pace lucha that AAA has to offer. It is exciting times for Lucha in North American and AAA wants to give to the audience a new option in the wrestling industry,” AAA General Manager Joaquín Roldán said in a release.
“AAA is one of the hottest Latin sports media brands with a growing global presence. TripleManía XXIII on pay-per-view is a major step for AAA’s global strategy. What better way to enter the U.S. and Canadian pay-per-view market than with this very special event” said Court Bauer, Executive Producer for TripleManía XXIII.
This marks the first time that TripleManía will be available live on pay-per-view. The event has previously been sold out 50,000+ capacity bullrings in major Mexican markets as well as in Tokyo and Chicago before capacity crowds. This year, the state-of-the-art Mexico City Arena (Arena Ciudad de México) will host the 23rd annual TripleManía.
More information on additional matches, international access for the event broadcast and more will be available shortly.
