AAA also announced that three TripleMania events throughout 2023; the shows will be held on April 16 (Monterrey), June 17 (Tijuana), and August 12 (Mexico City). These events will feature the “Guerra de Rivalidades”, where wrestlers will be paired up as opponents at the shows.

The pairings are as follows:
