New Promotion Will Offer Wrestler’s Health and Life Insurance

Alberto El Patron is teaming with fellow WWE alum Chavo Guerrero Jr. to form Nacion Lucha Libre, a new wrestling promotion based in Mexico.

Patron recently revealed that the promotion will be providing something other wrestling companies do not, health and life insurance.

“[Our wrestlers] are going to have health insurance and life insurance. Stuff they don’t have in any other companies.” Patron stated in an interview with the Miami Herald.

“Most of the companies, including WWE, they have their own doctors,” Patron stated. “They don’t provide you with health insurance. They force you to get your own health insurance. If you don’t get you own insurance, you’re not allowed to perform. If anything happens in their shows, yes you’re completely covered, which I think is the only company doing that.”

Patron added, “It’s really important to give a worker everything they deserve: health insurance, life insurance, a retirement plan. Stuff they’ve never had before.”

Nacion Lucha Libre’s debut show is 8 p.m. Friday, July 11 at Sala de Armas in Mexico City, Mexico.

The following matches are currently confirmed for the event.

  • Alberto & El Hijo del Fantasma & L.A. Park vs. Apolo & Mesias & MVP
  • Matt Sydal & Mystery Partner vs. Chavo Guerrero Jr. & Mecha Wolf 450
  • Bandido vs. Rey Horus
  • Brazo de Oro Jr. & Dual & El Hijo de Dos Caras vs. Batab El Guerrero & Bram & La Mascara

Nacion Lucha Libre will be available on Imagen TV, shows will begin broadcasting 10:30 p.m. Sundays, beginning July 13.

Seth Rollins was not WWE’s first pick for last night’s segment with DX and The O.C.

According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, Ricochet was originally planned to to be a part of the segment, and was pulled due to an elbow infection. The company was planning on using him as a fresh face to “get the rub” from DX and endorse him as a major player in the company.

Seth Rollins ended up working a match against AJ Styles, and being a part of the segment. It’s unknown how long Ricochet will be out of action.

It was also noted that Rikishi was originally supposed to give D-Von Dudley and The Revival a “Stinkface”, but was not medically cleared to perform any moves.

Jon Moxley will be making his Game Changer Wrestling debut at Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport 2 on September 14 in Atlantic City, NJ.

Bloodsport events feature matches that must end in either a knockout or submission. The ring features no ropes or turnbuckles, and the matches are presented in a MMA style. Although these bouts are worked, competitors work stuff and the matches have a semi-shoot feel.

At the last Bloodsport event Josh Barnett and Minoru Suzuki worked until a time-limit draw.

GCW and Josh Barnett are teaming up to bring back one of the most talked about events of the year when Bloodsport comes to The Showboat in Atlantic City on Saturday, September 14th!

It’s the ultimate hybrid. MMA meets Pro Wrestling in the most intense, physical, and groundbreaking event in years. Who will survive when shit gets real?
