The impartial lucha libre scene in Mexico has been rocking and rolling as of late. Now it’s time to add one other firm making an attempt to problem AAA and CMLL.
Alberto del Rio and Chavo Guerrero Jr. have thrown their hat (or scarf and poncho) within the lucha libre ring as frontmen of a brand new promotion named Nacion Lucha Libre. They have already got a tv deal lined up in Mexico and a few main expertise signed, each Mexican and worldwide.
Alberto and Chavo have been the principle voices on the Nacion Lucha Libre press convention on June 11 to usher in a brand new period of lucha libre. Hijo del Fantasma (aka King Cuerno), Mesias (aka Mil Muertes), La Mascara, and Attractive Star have been among the larger names in attendance. In addition they performed video promos from MVP, Carlito, Dr. Wagner Jr., and Ricardo Rodriguez. Different main names on the roster embody Fenix, Pentagon, LAX, Taurus, Laredo Child, Daga, Flamita, Puma King, Rey Horus (aka El Dragon Azteca Jr.), Bram, and Thunder Rosa (aka Kobra Moon).
Alberto teased that some present WWE wrestlers will probably be on board quickly. He didn’t identify names since they’re nonetheless employed by WWE.
That may be a strong trying roster, however one has to surprise about availability and exclusivity in Mexico. Alberto stated the Lucha Bros will probably be at virtually all the present dates deliberate. It’s fascinating that AAA champions Fenix and Laredo Child are each concerned. Will that have an effect on AAA’s future plans? Fenix is barely there anyway, however he’s their Mega Champion. Laredo has been a workhorse in AAA and is cruiserweight champ and a part of the trios champs.
Nacion Lucha Libre’s first occasion will probably be La Batalla Inicial on July 11 in Mexico Metropolis. The present will honor the legendary luchadores Tinieblas and Dos Caras.

Referee: Ricardo Rodriguez
Nacion Lucha Libre can have a weekly program on the Mexican community Imagen Televisión from 10:30 pm to midnight on Saturdays. I’m not that acquainted with Imagen Televisión, but it surely looks as if a fundamental channel with excessive availability.
Other than occasions in Mexico, Alberto talked about that reveals are already booked for San Antonio, Austin, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and dealing on Japan.
Not quite a lot of particulars have been talked about about what kind of program Nacion Lucha Libre will produce. Lucha Underground was referenced, however not by identify, so perhaps they are going to attempt to work in easier story vignettes. Or perhaps not and it will likely be just like all the opposite lucha libre applications in Mexico, that are principally all matches and no promos. Hopefully there will probably be simpler viewing entry, comparable to YouTube, for worldwide followers to take a look at.
The second that stood out essentially the most from the press convention was a confrontation between Kamille Kaine and Attractive Star.
Nacion Lucha Libre
Chavo talked about how Nacion Lucha Libre wanted additions to the roster to replicate the motion in girls’s wrestling. He then introduced out Kamille Kaine as ‘the long run’. Kaine is probably greatest referred to as valet to NWA champ Nick Aldis.
Kaine made fairly an impression along with her measurement and went heel with backhanded compliments like Mexicans being well mannered folks for a 3rd world nation. She stated the issue with luchadores carrying masks is that no person is aware of who they’re. That’s why Chavo needed to name up worldwide (non-Mexican) opponents for star energy.
Attractive Star had heard sufficient and confronted Kamille. Attractive isn’t scared or intimidated. It’s the flawed place, flawed time, and with the flawed particular person to be badmouthing Mexico. She is knowledgeable and can depart the combating to the ring. Kamille can identify the time and place.
It was a easy setup for a feud, however I’m bought.
As a fan of each Alberto and Chavo, shade me intrigued. I’m trying ahead to see what Nacion Lucha Libre has to supply that units it other than the remaining.
Does Nacion Lucha Libre pique your curiosity? Which matches of La Batalla Inicial stand out to you?
