AAA Lucha Libre Worldwide and Twitch.TV have partnered together and the promotion’s big Triplemania XXV will be airing live, this Saturday for free on AAA’s newly launched Twitch channels. You can watch the event with Spanish commentary here or you can watch it with English commentary here.
The Triplemania pre-show marathon on Twitch starts on August 24 at 5:00 p.m. CDT, with the live broadcast of Triplemania XXV beginning on August 26 from 7:00 pm-12:00 pm CDT. During the stream, viewers will find emotes themed after the event and various wrestlers enabling them to show their support in chat.
“We are very excited by the reaction of our fans to the “match of the decade” between Dr. Wagner Jr. and Psycho Clown,” said Dorian Roldán, Vice President of Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide commented. “This is why we decided to partner with Twitch to livestream Triplemania XXV exclusively on their platform and mobile applications. Since we both share a passion to innovate, we look forward to having Twitch broadcast our show around the world.”
AAA isn’t the first wrestling promotion to take to Twitch.TV (a gaming centered livestreaming platform), but it is the biggest promotion to do so. AAA joins the likes of WrestleCircus (the wrestling Twitch originators) and WCPW in broadcasting events on Twitch.
“We have recently seen the Twitch community rally around wrestling content since the sport is also entertainment-driven with engaging personalities and supported by passionate fans,” said Emmett Shear, CEO at Twitch. “With AAA Worldwide being among the industry’s biggest wrestling organizations and lucha libre holding a special place in pop culture, our involvement with Triplemania XXV marks a fun and fascinating milestone.”
“The most significant part of this event is we are combining the rich tradition and heritage of Mexican lucha libre with the digital engagement and participation of the Twitch experience,” adds Christian Borneman, Director Latin America, Twitch . “By livestreaming this amazing content to fans worldwide, we are providing a new way to engage with one of LATAM’s most unique and compelling cultural offerings.”
