Aaa continues to be the talk of the wrestling world following Alberto Del Rio and Rey Mysterio’s participation with the Mexican promotion. The company held their largest event of the year, Triplemania, opposite WWE’s SummerSlam and drew a sellout crowd to the Arena Ciudad in Mexico City. Now, Aaa has officially announced a new television show to air in the United States on the El Rey Network.
The show — which is titled “Lucha Underground” — will premiere on October 8th of this year. Aaa will make their American debut on El Rey — a network started by famed filmmaker, Robert Rodriguez. Together, the two companies are hyping a revolutionary wrestling product, which is to be produced by One Three Media — owned by Emmy-winning reality television producer Mark Burnett.
Burnett, the show’s Executive Producer, stated that, “Not since ‘The Contender’ premiere has a new series combined this level of drama and athletic competition. »

The hour-long weekly series will feature five Luchadores: Blue Demon Jr, Sexy Star, Fenix, Drago and Pentagon Jr. Currently, Lucha Libre’s freestyle wrestling draws over 85% of Mexican television viewers, and “Lucha Underground” expects to bring drama, excitement and action to the U.S. as masked heroes and villains battle in the ring for wrestling supremacy.
“Not since ‘The Contender’ premiered has a new series combined this level of drama and athletic competition,” said Burnett, who will executive produce the series. “Our Luchadores are fantastic, the action will be intense – and this season is just the beginning.”
