It’s never too early to get excited for Expo Lucha 2019 sports fans and the best way to start is knowing who will be making the trip to San Diego. It looks like we know at least a few of the names. Just moments ago the Expo Lucha Instagram page announced that Pentagon Jr., Fenix, Shane Strickland, Bandido, Jeff Cobb, Brody King, Mr. Aguila and Demus will be appearing at the 2019 edition of Expo Lucha. Lucha Central can also separately confirm that Lucha Underground and independent star Joey Ryan will be appearing as well.


This will be the second Expo Lucha appearance for Pentagon, Fenix, King and Demus, while Strickland, Bandido, Cobb, Aguila (who fans may remember as WWE’s Essa Rios) and Ryan will be making their first appearances. In addition, there will be a special Mexico vs. The World show at the convention, pitting the best of lucha libre against the best of the rest of the world. The Legends of Lucha Libre will return for a second show, while Viva La Lucha and a currently unknown show will also take place.


Expo Lucha 2019 will take place the 17th and 18th of August in San Diego, California; a venue will be announced when tickets go on sale on next Saturday on October 6th, 10 a.m. PST. Lucha Central will continue to provide updates on what luchadores and events will be added to the convention.
