Masked Republic, Inc. is working hard to build the best lucha libre event experience ever outside of Mexico City, and released this news earlier in the week:

We’re now proud to announce that Expo Lucha will be taking place at the Paradise Event Center at the Westgate Resort & Casino just off of the Las Vegas Strip – not 3 miles away as the Orleans was located. The hotel is one of the stops on the monorail system that serves the strip for a small fee. Or, if you prefer, the hotel offers FREE shuttles to the strip and to downtown Las Vegas. Additionally, the Paradise Event Center is better suited for an expo/convention style event than the Orleans.

Not only that, but the rooms are better and more modern than at the Orleans AND we’ve secured the same $99/night (plus tax and resort fee) that we had negotiated with the Orleans. And, with the event taking place over a holiday weekend, that is going to end up being a really good rate! Having said that, you are still more than welcome to book a hotel anywhere you would like. And, if you do want a cheaper strip option (like Circus Circus or Stratosphere, depending on the day), you’re now closer to the convention than before.

We will have the hotel discount code for you on approximately February 24th and will email you the code.

But wait…there’s more! The resort features over a dozen restaurants and bars and is home the the LARGEST SPORTS BOOK in Las Vegas!

Check out this video for more on the Westgate and we can’t wait to see you all in Las Vegas this summer! We’ve still got many more announcements to make – so be sure to be listening to the Keepin it 100 with Konnan podcast every Thursday because we’ll have some new announcements next week!
