YouTube

Alberto El Patron (fka Albert Del Rio) hasn’t been as active in the American wrestling scene since he was released from Impact Wrestling in 2018 after no-showing an event. However, in addition to his position as president of MMA promotion Combate Americas, El Patron has continued to play a role in the lucha libre world, freelancing for a variety of independent promotions. Yesterday, it was announced that the former WWE Champion will lead a new indie, Nación Lucha Libre.

Nación Lucha Libre’s inaugural event features some big names, including former WWE talent (including Ricardo Rodriguez as a referee) and wrestlers who currently work for AAA and AEW. The card for the show includes the Lucha Brothers (Penta El Zero M and Rey Fenix) vs. Mecha Wolf and Chavo Guerrero Jr., Damian 666 vs. El Solar vs. Negro Navarro vs. El Canek, Daga and Flamita vs. Puma King and Rey Horus, and Sexy Star, Lady Flammer, Reina Oscura vs. Thunder Rosa, Cristy Jaynes, Stephanie Vaquer. The main event is a six-man Team Mexico (Alberto El Patron, El Hijo del Fantasma, and Dr. Wagner Jr.) vs. Tem Puerto Rico (Apolo, El Masias, and MVP for some reason.)

Several of these wrestlers also having commitments for other companies that could cause problems for Nación Lucha Libre in the future, but that seems like an indie show people would go to see. Also, the poster kind of makes El Patron look like a long-lost member of the Nexus.
