On today’s episode of the Keepin it 100 with Konnan during the Masked Republic Minute segment, even more lucha libre stars were announced for Expo Lucha, the first lucha convention to be held outside of Mexico, coming to Las Vegas from August 31 to September 1st. (More details on Expo Lucha can be found here)
The legendary Fuerza Guerrera (yes, that would be the father of Juventud Guerrera for those who are not so familiar), who Konnan called one of the best workers in lucha history, will be part of the Legends of Lucha Libre event taking place on Saturday, September 1.
Three more Lucha Underground stars will be at the Expo as well as El Mesias Ricky Banderas (who is Mil Muertes on LU), Thunder Rosa (who is Kobra Moon on LU) and Mariachi Loco (who was Mariachi Loco on LU and is now Saltador of the Rabbit Tribe) will all be part of the Expo as well.
And, also announced was that the touring act known as Luchafer will be part of the Viva La Lucha event on Friday, August 31. Lucha Central has learned that there will be a 5 way match between Luchafer luchadores (most of whom have alter egos and are known as having come from the Santino Bros Wrestling Academy – one of the top wrestling schools in the U.S. and one of only a few known for training its students in both traditional pro wrestling and lucha libre side by side throughout their education).
All of the luchadores will be available for autographs and photos the same day they are wrestling. A full schedule of on which days and events each luchador will appear will be released closer to the event.
These stars are added to the already stellar lineup of lucha stars that includes Rey Mysterio, Konnan, Blue Demon Jr., Ultimo Dragon, Penta Zero M, Rey Fenix, Psychosis, Juventud Guerrera, Super Crazy and dozens more. The full list of previously announced talent as well as ticket information is at ExpoLucha.com.
This is the first time 100 luchadores will be gathered together under 1 building outside of Mexico City. With 4 live events, a live recording of Keepin it 100 with Konnan, museum exhibits, vendors, art galleries and more, this is the CAN’T MISS LUCHA EVENT OF THE YEAR!
