Haus of Wrestling has received the following press release from WWE touting the success of their SuperShows from this past weekend in Mexico.
WWE® DELIVERS RECORD-BREAKING LIVE EVENTS IN MEXICO
STAMFORD, Conn., July 24, 2023 – WWE® (NYSE: WWE) today announced that back-to-back WWE SuperShow events held at the Arena Ciudad de México in Mexico City on Saturday, July 22, and the Arena Monterrey in Monterrey on Sunday, July 23, broke records for WWE’s highest attendance and highest grossing live events in Mexico for 12 years.
The event in Mexico City also broke venue records, becoming the highest attendance and highest-grossing event ever held at the Arena Ciudad de México, in addition to setting a record for highest-ever WWE merchandise sales in Mexico City.
More than 25,000 spectators across both nights witnessed WWE Superstars, including Roman Reigns, Rey Mysterio, Rhea Ripley, Cody Rhodes, Ronda Rousey, Seth “Freakin” Rollins, Becky Lynch, Dominik Mysterio, Charlotte Flair, and Santos Escobar.
Earlier this month at the WWE Money In The Bank media junket, I spoke with Santos Escobar about his friendship with Konnan and the possibility the LWO could wrestle for AAA. Konnan is the booker for AAA, and the promotion helped to launch Escobar’s career. While Escobar said he would love to have a AAA homecoming, it wasn’t up to him, and he encouraged fans to check out this past weekend’s shows in Mexico under the WWE banner, which they obviously did.
