In Mexico AAA has its regular arenas that it either runs on its own at a set schedule or at which it books talent to local promoters on a similarly set schedule. The talent then gets booked in based on whatever feuds are getting pushed on TV or have been run before in the buildings to set up rematches or if the local promoters ask for anyone in particular. They shoot the big angles for TV and the supercards, then AAA runs shows afterwards. Something like this undertaking, needing cards put out in advance with hot angles and possibly outsiders to get extra interest, has traditionally been beyond its capabilities. The only difference this time is that instead of nebulously announcing an American tour, they actually got an MSG date and made it public. The most successful run AAA ever had in the States was its mid 1990s LA run and that venture had what were effectively stateside indy promoters running things on the ground. Once that venture crumbled, the promotion has never had any true or lasting success in America since.
