Both of AAA’s 2019 U.S. Events are Currently in Serious Doubt

Lucha Libre AAA officials are currently rumored to be possibly considering the idea of canceling both of their 2019 United States events, according to LuchaBlog.

It was reported that ticket sales for next month’s Madison Square Garden event were well under 1,000 sales as of mid-July and the company had stopped promoting their MSG and Los Angeles events on social media in late June. It was also reported that company officials did not want their announcers to mention either U.S. show during last weekend’s TripleMania XVII event.

FITE.TV reportedly does not have any event currently scheduled to air on September 15th, which was the announced date for AAA’s Madison Square Garden event.
