Friday, September 20 at 7:00 PM CT, AXS TV will air Lucha Invades NY, a special featuring Mexican wrestling promotion AAA‘s debut at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
It’s fitting as, in 2019, it appears lucha is everywhere. From restaurants to video games to fashion, there’s a distinct lucha-influence on the culture. The English voice of AAA, commentator and wrestler (and hip-hop head) Matt Striker spoke with Go 95.3‘s Chaz Kangas to discuss Friday’s special as well as what sets lucha apart from other styles of wrestling and why is it exactly that audiences are becoming so taken with it.
