According to The Tennessean, former WWE champion Rey Mysterio has joined the independent company based in Nashville Aro Lucha as co-owner and fighter.
The same source has mentioned that the company has launched a crowdfunding to give fans the opportunity to invest a small amount in their development. “I think it’s something revolutionary,” Rey Mysterio declared about the search for funding “because we’re giving our followers the possibility of owning a part of the company. we give them something they have never had before … a voice and an opportunity to participate in the action.
Aro Lucha taped his pilot episode last December in an event for which the locations were sold out and during which images were taken to prepare his presentation video in which faces known as King Mysterio himself appear, MVP, Johnny Mundo, James Storm, Hurricane Helms, Taya Valkyrie, Reby Hardy or Willie Mack.
While Aro Lucha is still looking for a television partner, co-founder Jason Brown has stated that they are considering different options before deciding where to produce the show which is expected to start recording in May or June and whose goal. according to Konnan, who is at the head of the creative part of the company is “to create a product suitable for the whole family”.
