Professional Wrestling

Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide (AAA for short), originally Asistencia Asesoría y Administración LLC (Spanish for "Assistance, Assessment, and Administration"), is a lucha libre professional wrestling promotion based in Mexico. Founded in 1992 when Antonio Peña broke away from Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) to set up a promotion, which allowed him more creative freedom, AAA has held a number of pay-per-views (PPV) over the years and has promoted shows not just in Mexico but in the United States and Japan as well. The promotion utilizes both a hexagonal and the more conventional four-sided wrestling ring and has a reputation for its outlandish gimmicks and characters as well as having developed a more extreme match style over the last couple of years. Over the years AAA has worked together with several North American promotions such as the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) and World Championship Wrestling; while currently having a working relationship with Japan-based Pro Wrestling Noah, US-based Impact Wrestling and the Canadian-based International Wrestling Syndicate (IWS).
