Lucha Libre AAA engages Impact Wrestling to promote NY event at Hulu Theater

Lucha Libre AAA today announced that it has engaged Impact Wrestling to promote Lucha Invades NY, the upcoming event which will be held at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden on September 15.

“Impact Wrestling and Lucha Libre AAA have been strong partners for many years and this event marks a significant milestone in our collaboration to bring fans dream matches featuring the best international talent from both organizations,” said Ed Nordholm, Chief Corporate Officer of Anthem Sports & Entertainment and President of IMPACT Wrestling. “For over 50 years, Madison Square Garden has hosted some of the biggest events in the world. It is an honor to team up with Lucha Libre AAA for this monumental show to present the best of Mexican professional wrestling in this legendary venue.”

Lucha Invades NY will feature former two-time UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez, as he competes in his second-ever professional wrestling bout. The event will also feature AAA Reina de Reinas (Queen of the Queens) Champion and Impact Wrestling star Tessa Blanchard in a defense of her title against former Reina de Reinas Champion and current Impact Knockouts Champion Taya Valkyrie, while Mexican legends Blue Demon Jr. and Rey Wagner will face one another in a grudge match.

“We are thrilled to bring the most popular Lucha Libre legends to fans in the Hulu Theater at MSG,” said Dorian Roldán, Director General of Lucha Libre AAA. “The Hulu Theater seating offers our fans the kind of exciting, personal experience they expect from AAA.”

In addition to Impact Wrestling stars taking part in the event, FN Originals (Fight Network’s original production department) will be on-site producing a behind-the-scenes Diary documentary episode on Velasquez.
