Today, a press release was issued from AAA, the Mexican lucha libre wrestling promotion, outlining that their “TripleMania” event will be available on pay per view in the United States and Canada. The event, which takes place on August 9, will be available on DirecTV, Dish Network, iN DEMAND on all major American cable providers and Rogers Communications in Canada, and Bell Canada Satellite. The price point, which may vary between carriers, is suggested at $29.95 for high definition, and $19.95 for standard definition.
This is something that has been talked about for a long time in wrestling circles. Fans of AAA know that the promotion has run iPPV in the past, and this is a pretty big score for them to get a pay per view deal. It will be interesting to see what kind of buyrate they turn here in the U.S. especially.
