WWE is always looking for new ways to diversify their programming. They have a multitude of Superstars with unique abilities on their roster, and they might have a special place for the luchadors soon.

It was previously reported that Triple H put a team together to create a new television show for the NXT brand. The company has also been discussing another series.

According to Wrestling Inc, WWE has been discussing a Mexican Lucha Libre series. This would be like NXT Mexico “of sorts.”

The show would air in the USA, and WWE “has spoken with a few people about running the project.” At this time, the idea is in its early planning stages.

Chavo Guerrero Jr’s name was brought up as a consultant for this project. He was an agent for Lucha Underground.

It was said that the project could be compared to Telemundo’s “Festival de Lucha.” A pilot for the WCW show was shot in 1999, but it never aired. Then it appeared on the WWE Network in the Hidden Gems section.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
