Lucha Libre AAA expanding operations in United States, including pay-per-view and TV series


Tired of World Wrestling Entertainment and just not that into either Impact Wrestling (formerly TNA Wrestling) or independent Ring of Honor?

Lucha Libre AAA may hit your sweet spot then.

The wrestling organization AAA, which stands for Asistencia Asesoría y Administración, is totally different than its American counterpart. It features mostly masked wrestlers, with a lot of high-flying action. The company was formed in 1992 after founder Roldan Pena left rival lucha libre company CMLL. Pena has passed away, but the company is run by his family - Marisela Peña Herrada, Joaquín Roldán Retanaand Dorian Roldán Peña -- and Antonio Cué Sánchez-Navarro, a real estate, finance and sports entrepreneur.

Now AAA is teaming with FactoryMade Ventures to expand the company into the United States, as well as other international areas. The partnership will also reach out into new media ventures, including pay-per-view television in America, as well as new scripted and nonscripted series.

No details have been revealed yet on what specific ventures will be created or when this move will happen. The company will still be based out of Mexico and run most of its events there.

Starlight Runner Entertainment, a production company that focuses on global transmedia growth, is also affiliated with FactoryMade and Lucha Libre AAA in this venture.
