Just a day after AAA announced their May 18th show in Tehuacan, the lucha libre powerhouse has returned with an even bigger card! Just moments ago on Twitter AAA announced the full lineup for their fourth biggest show of the year and the final big show before Triplemania, Verano de Escandalo. And boy does it top yesterday’s show. For the second straight year the show will feature a trios Apuesta match, with the warring Los OGT’s and Poder del Norte settling it once and for all in a hair vs. hair match. Hopefully it goes better for Poder del Norte this time around!
Meanwhile the surprises in AAA just keep coming; the opener, second, third, semi-main and main event will all feature at least one Luchadore Sorpresa. Some names aren’t being kept secret however, as the second match will feature the AAA debut of rising US indie star Sammy Guevara as he battles for the AAA World Cruiserweight Championship against champion Australian Suicide, Aerostar, Drago and a Luchadore Sorpresa. Even bigger will be the main event, which sees Dr. Wagner Jr. defend his AAA Mega Championship against another Luchadore Sorpresa and a returning Rey Mysterio Jr.! This will be Mysterio’s first AAA show in over two years and he should be a favorite to win this match.
The full poster for the show is featured below. AAA’s Verano de Escandalo will be held in Monterrey on June 3rd and will be broadcast live on Twitch.
