Impact Wrestling is now co-promoting the upcoming September 15th event “Lucha Invades NY” along with AAA. The event will take place inside the Hulu Theatre in Madison Square Garden. Impact Wrestling’s Taya Valkyrie and Tessa Blanchard are scheduled for a featured match on the show. Blanchard won the Reina De Reinas championship at TripleMania and will defend the belt against Taya in New York.
“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, President of IMPACT Wrestling in a press release announcing the news.
“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.”
“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.”
A crew from Anthem’s Fight Network will be on-hand at the event filming a documentary on Cain Velasquez as well.
