Here's a place to check results and comment along with AAA's Triplemanía XXIII pay-per-view (PPV) - happening tonight, Sunday, August 9, 2015 in Mexico City.
Tonight's event, the largest on the calendar for one of Mexico - and the world's - largest pro wrestling promotions, will be available in the United States and Canada with English-language commentary by Matt Striker and Hugo Savinovich. For a list of PPV carriers, click here. The HD version is $29.95 US; standard definition is available for $19.95. If your cable or satellite company isn't on the list, you can still watch online at this link for $19.00.
Triplemanía XXIII features co-main events with luchadores with whom WWE and North American fans should be very familiar. In what AAA is billing as a dream match, Rey Mysterio faces Myzteziz (the original Sin Cara). And the promotion's Mega Champion, Alberto El Patron, was WWE champ when his surname was Del Rio. He'll face Lucha Underground's Brian Cage in a hair vs. hair match!
Get educated on the wild, wonderful world of lucha libre (along with the rest of us)...AAA's English language site is here and has a wealth of articles, background and links. Geno & I spoke to former WWE writer and AAA executive producer Court Bauer here. Bill Hanstock was joined on Rudo Radio by the legendary Konnan here. And I did my level best to preview the card here, or watch Striker & Savinovich do it here.
Feel free to use this space to discuss the show with the best pro wrestling community on the internet - before, during and after the show.
