NEW YORK, (CelebrityAccess) — Mexican freestyle wrestling promotion Lucha Libre AAA will bring its roster of Mexican and international wrestler to Madison Square Garden later this year.
Set for September 15th, the performance will be the first time that Lucha Libre AAA presents an event of this magnitude in the main arena at the Garden.
The date of the September 15th event is expected to attract an audience of Lucha Libre AAA fans from New York’s Mexican and Hispanic communities, as well as the area’s die-hard pro wrestling fans.
Dorian Roldàn, Managing Director of Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide said, “The timing of the event on September 15th is very important for everyone of Mexican heritage. It is the eve of Mexican Independence Day and is also recognized in the U.S. as the ‘unofficial’ kick-off of Hispanic Heritage promotions. We anticipate that all of New York’s diverse Hispanic community will join us at Madison Square Garden to enjoy this truly-Mexican spectacle in New York’s most iconic sports venue.”
The full roster of wrestlers who are confirmed to appear will be released at a later date.
If you’re unfamiliar with the arcane world of Lucha Libre wrestling, imagine a ramped up version of American-style professional wrestling, replete with colorful costumes and iconic masks.
Roldàn added, “Our firm is going through a very important moment of globalization, that has allowed us to place Mexican Lucha Libre and its wrestlers, known as luchadores, at a new level. Lucha libre is a sport and a performance that offers the opportunity for families and fans of all social levels to gather together and surrender in front of the mysticism and dedication of the wrestlers, anywhere in the world.”
