AAA announced in a press release for their upcoming “Invading NY” event at Madison Square Garden on September 15 has been relocated.
The event, originally to be held in the main arena of Madison Square Garden, has been moved to the smaller Hulu Theater of Madison Square Garden. The reason, according to AAA’s Director General Dorian Roldán, is because the theater offers a more intimate setting and gives way for fans to have a personal experience, something which AAA claims to be known for.
F4WOnline is reporting that only about 2,000 tickets had been sold for the event. The Hulu Theater has a capacity of 5,600. Those that bought tickets already will be guaranteed a seat of equal or greater value.
Matches announced for the event are Tessa defending the Queen of Queens Championship against Taya, and Blue Demon Jr. and Dr. Wagner facing off in a Mask vs. Hair match. Blue Demon and Dr. Wagner fought in a match with the exact same stipulation earlier this month at AAA TripleMania, which Blue Demon won.
