Last week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter contained a report noting that the owner of Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide, Dorian Roldan, is in discussions over a potential show in the US with a good friend, although it was unknown at that time who Roldan was referring to.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has now shed some light on this situation, revealing that the “good friend” in question is Starrcast promoter Conrad Thompson. Additionally, Meltzer revealed that the duo are planning to run a 7,000-seat arena in California during Wrestlemania week.
“The story in last week’s issue where Dorian Roldan was talking about the U.S. market and about doing a show with a good friend in the U.S., was apparently about Conrad Thompson. The idea for the show would be in Carson, CA at a 7,000-seat arena over Mania week.”-WON
AAA recently revealed that they’ll be at the Mullet Arena in Tempe, Arizona on December 22nd, in what will be their first show in the United States since AAA Invading NY show in September of 2019 at the Hulu Theater in Madison Square Garden.
The Mexican promotion are undoubtably growing in the US market, with the current AAA Mega Champion El Hijo del Vikingo set to make his GCW debut next month in a move that will likely increase the number of American eyes on AAA even further.
As always, we’ll aim to provide any updates regarding AAA’s next foray into the United States as soon as we hear more.
