NAITO APPEARANCE LEADS TO IMMEDIATE SELLOUT FOR CHICAGO'S AAW

By Mike Johnson on 2018-01-01 19:38:00

With New Japan Pro Wrestling's Tetsuya Naito announced for AAW's 2/17 "Showdown" event at the Logan Square Auditorium in Chicago, IL, all 500 tickets for the event sold out completely within 90 minutes of being put on sale.   Our February 17 event "Showdown" featuring Naito vs. Sami Callihan sold out 90 minutes after tickets were available to the general public.  All 500 tickets for the event at the historic Logan Square Auditorium are now gone.  It will be Naito's first appearance for the company.

During the promotion's Windy City Classic event over the weekned, Matt Riddle vs. ACH was set to determine who the top contender for the AAW championship was.  Since it went to a 20 minute time limite draw, each will be receiving a title shot later this year.

Riddle will get the first title shot on 1/20, challenging AAW champion Rey Fenix at Logan Square Auditorium.  New Japan's Juice Robinson will be working that show.  For ticket information, click here.

A number of AAW events are available for streaming via a subscription to the Highspots Wrestling Network.
