With under one month to go until Masked Republic’s massive Future Legend presents Expo Lucha event in Las Vegas – bringing 100 luchadores and pro wrestlers together for 2 days packed with 4 live lucha libre events, autograph sessions, museum exhibits, a live Keepin it 100 with Konnan podcast, a Lucha Underground panel and more – Lucha Central was able to get an exclusive on the latest legend to be added.
As with any event or convention, the card has been subject to change, and due to unexpected circumstances, Mil Mascaras was removed from the convention. However, THREE legends will be appearing in his place.
Just a few weeks ago it was announced that Tinieblas Jr. and Alushe would be added to Expo including in the main event of the Legends of Lucha Libre card taking place on Saturday, September 1st at 2 PM.
Now, in a Lucha Central exclusive, the legendary luchador and current President of the Mexico City Boxing and Wrestling Commission, El Fantasma will make his first U.S. wrestling appearance in more than a decade when he stands opposite Tinieblas Jr. at Expo Lucha. Their partners in this legend packed trios main event will be announced next week.
Masked Republic also teased the addition of a Luchador Sorpresa to Expo Lucha, but made sure to point out on Facebook that this was more of a tongue in cheek joke because nearly every major AAA event poster starts with at least one or two Luchador Sorpresas listed on it.
Lucha Central has also been told that Lucha Underground star Famous B and Lucha Libre Las Vegas’ SiNN Bhodi and Funnybone have been added to the weekend as well. Additional names including a recently announced Mae Young Classic 2 luchadora, stars from Las Vegas’ Future Stars of Wrestling as well as a number of lucha libre “juniors” – sons of luchadors who carried on the family tradition in their name – are expected to be added next week as the list of luchadores and pro wrestlers climbs toward 1oo!
