On Wednesday night, in Hollywood, CA, the stars both in front of the camera and behind the scenes of Lucha vaVOOM and the brand new documentary “Lucha VaVOOM – Inside America’s Most Outrageous Show” celebrated the film’s release with a red carpet premiere.
The film, available now on Amazon and coming soon to the iTunes and Google Play stores, takes, as the title suggests, an inside look at one of the most successful companies to borrow from lucha libre while creating a product uniquely it’s own. While numerous companies around the globe have borrowed from the VaVOOM model over the company’s past 15 years, there it truly only one original lucha libre x burlesque show.
