It’s that time of the week once again where we highlight the results of the various popular wrestling federations around the world. We’re at the stage where pivotal events are happening around the globe: the Mexican Lucha Libre “Wrestlemania”, the final stretch of the G1 Climax tournament of New Japan Pro Wrestling, and WWE’s summer spectacle WWE Summer Slam beckons! Now on to the recap!
One of Mexico’s premiere lucha libre federations, AAA (or Asistencia Asesoría y Administración), held their annual Wrestlemania-level event last Sunday in Mexico City. Unfortunately, production issues and sub-par wrestling (including a rare negative 5-star rated match by Dave Meltzer) killed this event.
