2015 Rey de Reyes postponed due to rain

Tonight’s Rey de Reyes was washed out. Guadalajara got hit with a rain storm this afternoon, one which was to pick up in intensity right around the start of the show and go into the night. The iPPV stream came on the air about a half hour before the show, and showed pools of water on the tarp covering the ring. It was a thin, late arriving crowd as the show approached bell time.

At 6pm local, the announced start time, AAA luchadors and Joaquin Roldan came to the ring together. Most everyone was in street clothes, which tipped off the show not starting as scheduled. Joaquin officially announced the show would not be run that night – citing safety issues with the rain and the electrical equipment – and instead would take place tomorrow in Auditorio Benito Juarez in nearby Zapopan. All tickets for this show will be honored tomorrow, and all people who bought the iPPV will also be able to see it tomorrow.

Rey Misterio Jr. spoke to the crowd, thanking them for coming out and encouraging them to come to the show on Monday. The show will start at the same time on Monday, 6pm local, 8 pm US ET.

EDIT: The show will be at Auditorio Benito Juarez, an indoor arena. Forget the rain.
