Alberto del Rio and Chavo Guerrero Jr. have just announced the start up of their new wrestling promotion named Nacion Lucha Libre. They already have a television deal lined up in Mexico and some major talent signed, both Mexican and international.
Alberto and Chavo were the main voices at the Nacion Lucha Libre press conference on June 11 to usher in a new era of lucha libre. Hijo del Fantasma (aka King Cuerno), Mesias (aka Mil Muertes), La Mascara, and Sexy Star were some of the bigger names in attendance. They also played video promos from MVP, Carlito, Dr. Wagner Jr., and Ricardo Rodriguez. Other major names on the roster include Fenix, Pentagon, LAX, Taurus, Laredo Kid, Daga, Flamita, Puma King, Rey Horus (aka El Dragon Azteca Jr.), Bram, and Thunder Rosa (aka Kobra Moon).
Alberto teased that some current WWE wrestlers will be on board soon. However, he didn’t name anyone since they are currently still employed by WWE.
The Ringside View: Obliviously this is big news for the wrestling world. As we’ve said before options are a good thing for fans and for wrestlers and this gives people yet another promotion. Del Rio and Chavo seem to have things in order which is great and we’re excited to see what’s in store especially if they can line up some big names.
