As the wrestling universe eagerly anticipates AEW's WrestleDream this weekend, the ripple effect of its schedule has been felt in another corner of the wrestling world. Specifically, Mexican lucha libre sensation, AAA, finds itself in a quandary.
Scheduled for a mega-event, Heroes Inmortales, the same weekend, AAA had initially penciled in Penta El Zero Miedo for a marquee match. However, Penta's recent addition to the WrestleDream roster has led to a reshuffling of cards.
AAA officials confirmed that Penta will be unable to grace the ring in Zapopan, Jalisco, Mexico. Stepping into his boots will be none other than Alberto El Patron, set to make a tag team alongside AAA stalwart Octagon Jr. Their adversaries for the night? Sam Adonis and the reigning AAA Latin American Champion, QT Marshall.
Alberto El Patron AAA Return
It's worth noting that Alberto El Patron re-entry to AAA was earlier this year, marking his footprint at the Lucha Libre World Cup. This was followed by a key role in the Guerra de Rivalidades tournament, which spanned across AAA's signature TripleMania series.
There's been a murmur in wrestling corridors about Alberto El Patron involvement, given his tumultuous history. Yet, AAA's seasoned bookerT, Konnan, has staunchly backed the decision, underscoring the promotional value and dynamism Alberto El Patron brings to the table.
While Penta's absence at the AAA event is palpable, he's not exactly on a sabbatical. He's slated for a high-octane four-way clash at AEW's WrestleDream, aiming to clinch the No. 1 contender spot for the coveted AEW World Tag Team Championship, presently owned by FTR.
Penta will join forces once again with his Lucha Brothers comrade, the AEW International Champion Rey Fenix. Their competition? The formidable trio of The Gunns, the Young Bucks, and the dynamic duo of Orange Cassidy and HOOK.
