IMPACT Wrestling Announces Landmark Partnership with Mexico’s Lucha Libre AAA

By building bridges with various partners globally, we can give fans a premier product featuring the best possible talent, which has always been a top priority. Looking to the future, IMPACT Wrestling will be unveiling more international partnerships in the coming weeks and months.”

“We are thrilled to forge this alliance with AAA, a company rooted in tradition, as we continue to grow our network of global partners, which also includes Japan’s Pro-Wrestling NOAH,” said Ed Nordholm, president of IMPACT Wrestling. “This alliance is an important step in our international expansion strategy, bringing together the best performers around the globe as we take IMPACT Wrestling to the next level.”

“This is a very exciting announcement for AAA and it coincides with our 25th anniversary,” said Dorian Roldan, Executive VP of Enterprise Development for AAA. “My uncle Antonio Pena started working with Jeff Jarrett many years ago and my family look forward to carrying on this mutual cooperation into the future.
