Lucha Libre is coming to the USA!

highlights from the article posted on espn.com

Ron Skoler (New York City Entertainment Lawyer) is a big fan of lucha libre. After visiting Mexico many times to see lucha libre, Skoler wanted to see this form of pro wrestling in the USA. Getting together with Steven Graham (wrestling booker) and Mike Quackenbush (wrestler, promoter, booker, trainer), Skoler has opened up International Wrestling Council (IWC). Originally set to work with companies in Mexico to promote in the Los Angeles area, many of the luchadors saw this as an opportunity to work full time in the USA and has jumped ship. IWC will debut on January 19th, 2019 with their first event entitled "First Strike" from the Long Beach Arena in Long Beach, California. You can view this event on YouTube, but also on the brand new "Lucha Libre Network" a streaming service app that is available on all devices.

The "Lucha Libre Network" will be available on January 14, 2019 launching with 100 classic lucha matches from Mexico. That back catalog will be expanded upon over time. Each major IWC event will be shown live on the Network and be available On Demand immediately following. The television show "Festival de Lucha" will be put on the Network 30 days after it airs on television. "Festival de Lucha" will be shown live every Thursday night across the USA and northern Mexico in both English and Spanish. You can come to the Globe Thetre in Los Angeles every Thursday night to see IWC's show live.

IWC will be truly international, landing stars from all over the globe. Some of the name luchadors signed are LA Park, Rey Fénix, Pentagón Jr., Bárbaro Cavernario, Rush, Dragon Lee, and Máscara Dorada. From Japan Kairi Hojo and CIMA are also on board and America stars like Sasha Banks, Bayley, and The Briscoe Brothers will be appearing as well. On top of that their will be wrestlers from 5 different countries from the very beginning. 

Things we have learned from IWC is that wrestlers will not be separated by gender or weight, everyone will fight everyone. There will be a "Lightning" Title that will be defended on TV each week in a ten minute time limit match. The challenger will be picked at random from anyone who has won their last match in IWC. Freddie Prince Jr. will be the "Commissioner" of IWC, although he is not expected to appear in person and very rarely be seen in pre taped videos. Following lucha tradition, trios matches will be heavily featured as well as "lucha tag" rules, where you do not need to tag your partner in a tag match, but you can enter as soon as your partner leaves the ring.

IWC seems like an interesting experiment with all a possibility of going mainstream, however there is a possibility it could be rejected by the wrestling audience in the States.

IWC First Strike

January 19, 2019

Long Beach Arena in Long Beach, CA.

Shown live on YouTube and the Lucha Libre Network.

The main event of the evening will be a continuation of one of the most intense feuds from Mexico over the last few years, as LA Park will team with El Hijo del LA Park and Bandido to take on Los Ingobernables. Rush and LA Park hate each other and this should be an intense war.

Two of the top tag teams in the world will square off as The Lucha Brothers will take on the team of The Boss 'n' Hug Connection. Which tag team is the best in IWC?

A dream match rudo Bárbaro Cavernario and técnico Máscara Dorada will also take place, as two of the top wrestlers from Mexico will try to prove who is the best luchador.

An International Incident will happen at First Strike as five competitors from all over the world will be in one elimination match. The USA will be represented by Mercedes Martinez, Mexico by Dragon Lee, Canada by "Speedball" Mike Bailey, Japan by Kairi Hojo, and New Zealand by Toni Storm.

A few more matches will be added on to feature the talent of IWC.

I think I'm in the same situation about your promotion that you are with mine (although your names have more recognition than mine) but you got a solid tournament set up right off the bat!

IWC First Strike
January 19, 2019 in Long Beach, CA
Long Beach Arena
Shown live on The Lucha Libre Network and Youtube.

A video package airs going through the history of lucha libre and then shows highlights of IWC talent showing the future of lucha libre. As the video package ends we focus on JoJo in the ring, the host of the International Wrestling Council. She welcomes everybody to the future of lucha libre! It all begins with this "First Strike". We then get introductions for our opening contest, which features the young guns of IWC.

 

1. Atómicos Show Case Match

[Técnicos] Volador Jr. y Mayu Iwtani y DemonXBunny (Allie y Rosemary)
vs
[Rudos] ACH y Princess KimberLee y Jordynne Grace y Templario

We are joined by our announce team of "Lightning" Mike Quackenbush and Leonard F. Chikarson to call the action tonight. Quackenbush explains the rules of IWC, which differ from traditional lucha libre. First what stays is the lucha tag format, i.e. a wrestler can make a tag by leaving the ring. What differs is that the matches will be one single fall and there will be no "Captains" rule.

Tonight's matches are not only important, because it's the debut show for IWC, but there is title implications. On the first episode of "Festival de Lucha" on January 23rd the inaugural IWC Lightning Champion will be crowned. The Lightning Title will be defended each week on television in a match with a ten minute time limit. The challenger will be drawn at random from anybody who has won their last match (within the last 30 days) who declares they want the challenge. For the first champion, two of the people who have won tonight will be drawn at random for that chance.

On top of that the 32-person IWC Title Tournament will begin on the 23rd as well. Most of these competetors are in the tournament and are looking to gain momentum.

This contest is a spotfest to showcase some younger talent to the world. Volador Jr., ACH, & Templario dazzle with their high flying. Mayu Iwatani is the charmaing underdog babyface who puts up a good fight. Jordynne Grace shows off her power moves. Princess Kimber Lee is acrobatic but vicious. Allie is the charming Bunny and has her odd dynamic with the Demon Rosemary. Volador Jr. hits an impressive top rope Frankensteiner on Templario for the victory.

Winners: Volador Jr. y Mayu Iwtani y DemonXBunny @ 9:02.

 

We head backstage where "Journalist" UltraMantis Black is Los Ingobernables (Rush, CIMA, & Mia Yim). Black qustions Rush on his new team, since he lost all of his former Ingobernables and questions if it's smart to have talent from Mexio, the USA, and Japan on one unit. Rush answers in Spanish (which are subtitled) saying this is the best unit he has ever had behind him. Mia Yim says that LA Park has been a thorne in Rush's side for too long and it ends tonight!

Back to JoJo to introduce us to our next match.

 


2. Trios Action

[Técnicos] The Colony (Silver Ant y Fire Ant y Green Ant)
vs
[Rudos] Nueve Generacion Dinamitas (Sansón y El Cuatrero y Forastero)

Quackenbush is very excited for this match, as it is luchadors in their element in trios action! Chikarson asks him if he can be unbiased, since he trained The Colony? Quackenbush says he will do his best.

The Colony is a team of ants, which Nueve Generacion Dinamitas are the sons and nephews of one of the most famous luchador of all-time in Cien Caras and his famous team. All competitors are great all around athletes and this was an excellent match with the rudos cheating to gain advantage and get the eventual win when Sansón hit the Poder Dinamita (a torture rack power bomb) for the win on the youngest member of The Colony Green Ant.

Winners: Nueve Generacion Dinamitas @ 10:04

 

We are thrown to the back where UltraMantis Black has a report for us. There is some kind of disturbance outside the arena, some kind of protest. UltraMantis will get to the bottom of this and report back.

JoJo invites us back to the action for a battle between some amazing high flyers and a team that claims to be the masters of the mat Los Maestros.

 

 

3. Air vs Ground: 

[Técnicos] Stuka Jr. y Soberano Jr. y Flamita
vs
[Rudos] Los Maestros (Deonna Purazzo y Rey Hechicero y Virus)

Los Maestros ground the high flying trio for the majority of the contest wtih matwork and submissions. Late in the contest Stuka Jr. slid out of the ring off an irish whip and Soberano hit a springboard dropkick on Virus out of nowhere to finally get the high flyers into their element. We get a trio of dives by the high flyers, but once we got back in the ring Hechicero hits El Conjuro (spinning hammerlock into backbreaker) on Flamita for the win.

Winners: Los Maestros @ 13:38.

 

We head to old school Royal Rumble style short promos by each competitor in the Inernational Incident Elimination Match. Each wants to win the match to show their country is the best.

 

 

4. International Incident Elimination Match: 

[Técnico] Mike Bailey (Canada)
vs
[Técnico] Toni Storm (New Zealnd)
vs
[Técnico] Kairi Hojo (Japan)
vs
[Rudo] Mercedes Martinez (USA)
vs
[Técnico] Dragon Lee (Mexico)

This contest starts with two people in the ring and changes with tags (whether traditonal or lucha). People are elimination by pinfall, submission, and DQ. The match is up tempo with everybody going for elimiations as quickly as they can. Martinez, being the only rudo, ended up being ganged up on after she had tried to eliminate Mike Bailey by pulling his tigths. Mike Bailey and Toni Storm hit a Hart Attack on Mercedes to eliminate her first. Immediately after Storm hit the Storm Zero to pin Bailey. The match comes down to Kairi Hojo, Dragon Lee, and Toni Storm. Lots of action with everybody gaining an advantage. The final moments saw Kairi Hojo hitting her flying elbow drop off the top on Storm to eliminate her. Dragon Lee and Hojo squared off and after a nearfall by Hojo after an inside cradle, Dragon hit the Dragon Driver to pin her and gain the victory for Mexico.

Winner: Dragon Lee @ 16:26.

 

We get word that UltraMantis Black is outside and has a report for us. The disturbance outside is a protest with a bunch of white guys in red hats holding up signs saying "Build the Wall". They are protesting all of these "illegals" working here in the USA. Two of the leaders of the protest seem to be Jay and Mark Briscoe.

 

 

5. Lucha Dream Match: 
[Técnico] Máscara Dorada
vs
[Rudo] Bárbaro Cavernario

Two charismatic tremendous workers here go out to put on a classic. Cavernario takes advantage after hittng The Worm and a flying splash from the top to the floor. However Cavernario could not put him away leading to Dorada making a comeback. Back and forth it went until Cavernario misses a huge lariat and Dorada hit the Dorada Screwdriver for the win.

Winner: Máscara Dorada @ 22:37.

 

A commercial for "Festival de Lucha" debuting on the 23rd of Janaury is aired. 

 

 

6. Tag Team Dream Match: 
[Técnicos] The Lucha Brothers (Pentagón Jr. y Rey Fénix)
vs
[Técnicos] The Boss 'n' Hug Connection (Sasha Banks y Bayley)

Two of the best tag teams in the world both técnicos square off here. Quackenbush and Chikarson are very excited to see this contest. Everybody shakes hands before the match. We get an epic tag match with both teams hiting dives and taking times in charge. We get to a point where Bayley is isolated by The Lucha Brothers and are in control for a long while. Sasha gets begging for Bayley to make a tag or to roll to the floor, but she just can't. The Lucha Brothers go for a Doomsday Device, but Bayley rolls Pentagón Jr. into a Victory Roll for the win gaining the shocking win.

Winners: The Boss 'n' Hug Connection @ 18:39.

 

After the match Sasha seems displeased, feeling Bayley stole the spotlight. After some talking they hug it out. As Bayley goes to leave the ring, Banks hits her from behind with a cross block and then stomps on her leg a bunch of times before leaving the ring to boos.

We bo to the announce booth where Mike Quackenbush and Leonard F. Chikarsoon are shocked by what happened. They can not believe "The Boss" here. UltraMantis Black joins the booth and applauds Banks for dropping the dead weight and proving she can do it on her own.

The three go over the long history of Rush and LA Park and there many year feud and hatred. The main event is now set.

 

 

7. The Grudge: 
[Técnicos] LA Park y El Hijo del LA Park y Bandido
vs
[Rudos] Los Ingobernables (Rush y CIMA y Mia Yim)

Head referee Bryce Remsburg lets the rules be relaxed here as Rush and LA Park immediately take it to the floor and brawl through out the arena. El Hijo del LA Park and Mia Yim square off and also take it to the floor. Those four brawl, throw chairs and garbage cans at each other. It's vicious. All the while CIMA and Bandido put on a beautiful high flying contest inside of the ring. As CIMA is running the ropes LA Park nails him with a chair and Bandido rolls him up to pick up the victory.

Winners: LA Park y El Hijo del LA Park y Bandido @ 15:10.

 

Everybody keeps brawling to the back as The Briscoe Brothers apear out of nowhere and attack Bandido leaving him laid out as the show ends.

I for one am glad you went away from the Captain fall rule. It's that one thing with lucha libre that confuses me the most, especially with CMLL. I really can't into CMLL tag matches because of that.

Thanks all for your feedback. Hopefully you like where things head from those angles.

The first episode of Festival de Lucha has arrived. Shown live on television in English and Spanish, with subtitles and a different announce team for each broadcast.

IWC Festival de Lucha

January 24, 2019 in Los Angeles, CA

The Globe Theatre


JoJo welcomes us to Festival de Lucha here live in the Globe Theatre, as IWC will be each week going forward! Freddie Prince Jr. has sent in the names that were randomly drawn to compete in crown the very first IWC Lightning Champion. Anyone who has won their last match can enter themselves into this draw. The first name drawn was Deonna Purazzo, of Los Maestros.. The second name drawn Bandido, who came to the ring limping after the attack from The Briscoe Brothers at First Strike.

1. Match to crown the first IWC Lightning Champion: 

[Técnico] Bandido

vs

[Rudo] Deonna Purazzo

The high flyer Bandido is grounded due to the injury from First Strike and Purazzo, who is the leader of Los Maestros, going to work on it. Remember each Lightning Title match has a ten minute time limit. Every hope spot of Bandido is interrupted by Purazzo. At the eight minute mark, Bandido makes his comes back and goes up to the top rope to finish Purazzo off, only for the rest of Los Maestros to come to ringside to distract Bandido and the referee, while The Briscoe Brothers run out and nail Bandido in the leg with a steel chair. Purazzo slaps on a leg submission to pick up the win and the title. The Briscoe Brothers high tail to the back as Los Maestros celebrate with the title as we go to commercial. 

Winner: Deonna Purazzo @ 8:51 to win the IWC Lightning Title.

Back from commercial UltraMantis Black is trying to get to the bottom of what The Briscoe Brothers are doing with their constant attacks on Bandido and them joining the protest at First Strike. The Briscoe Brothers are sick of illegals coming into America and taking jobs from great Americans. They are interrupted as UltraMantis got a text from Freddie Prince Jr. informing us that The Briscoe Brothers are banned from The Globe Theatre for the next 30 days. Briscoes are pissed and that thief Bandido will pay for this.

We get a video package hyping up the tournament to crown the IWC Champion including the brackets.

Mike Quackenbush and Leonard F. Chikarson talk about what has happened already tonight. Purazzo is the Lightning Champion and although she is deserving, she did not fairly win that title. She will have to defend that title next week! They are happy The Briscoes are banned from The Globe Theatre due to their actions. They then run down the tournament and each make predictions, Quack believes LA Park is the favourite, while Chikarson feels Rush is Mascara Dorada will win.

2. IWC Title Tournament First Round Match: 

[Técnico] Dragon Lee

vs

[Rudo] ACH

Here we have two of the best wrestlers in the world, not only at high flying, but all around as well going at it. A fair contest where each were very close to winning, however Dragon Lee was just too much for ACH to handle as he picks up the win to advance.

Winner: Dragon Lee @ 15:54.

A taped promo from Darkness Crabtree is shown, saying he will be hear next week. He appears to be an extremely old man in a mask.

Next UltraMantis Black congratulates Sasha Banks for dumping that loser Bayley and going on her own. Banks says The Boss is back and the IWC Title will be her's.

3. IWC Title Tournament First Round Match: 

[Técnico] Mayu Iwatani

vs

[Rudo] Sasha Banks

Fans throw streamers for Iwatani who does a spin and collects them all and then trips going to the corner to get them removed. Banks looks on in disgust. Sasha goes to hug Mayu to taunt Bayley, but Mayu slaps her. The shit is on and we get an intense contest that goes back and forth. A Banks Statement finishes Mayu off.

Winner: Sasha Banks @ 17:04.

We get hype for next week where we will get three IWC Title Tournament matches including: Mercedes Martinez vs Rey Fénix, Daniel Makabe vs Atlantis, and Jordynne Grace vs Kairi Hojo.

IWC Festival de Lucha

January 31, 2019 in Los Angeles, CA

The Globe Theatre


JoJo welcomes us to Festival de Lucha here live in the Globe Theatre. We have a loaded care this evening, so let's get straight to the action.

 

1. IWC Title Tournament First Round Match: 

[Técnico] "Speedball" Mike Bailey

vs

[Rudo] Templario

Leonard F. Chikarsson is very excited for this high flying affair, while Mike Quackenbush is interested in seeing the up and coming Templario here in IWC. This is a sprint spot fest with a lot of high flying by both and some amazing kicks by Bailey. A shooting Star Double Knee finishes Templario off in an exciting finish.

Winner: Mike Bailey @ 7:06.

 

We head to the back to UltraMantis Black who is very happy to be joined by Sasha Banks after her actions of attacking Bayley at First Strike and advancing to the second round of the IWC Title Tournament. She doesn't want to talk about Bayley, who is yesterday's news. She will not be associated with that loser. She will face the winner of Jordynne Grace and Kairi Hojo in the second round. Both have great reputations, but neither compare to "The Boss".

 

JoJo is in the ring and it is now time for the IWC Lightning Title match. The Champion Deonna Purazzo comes to the ring with the members of Los Maestros. Her opponent is randomly drawn to be ... El Hijo del LA Park

 

2. IWC Lightning Title Match: 

[Técnico Challenger] El Hijo del LA Park

vs

[Rudo Champion] Deonna Purazzo

UltraMantis Black joins the announce booth to replace Quackenbush. This wasn't much of a match, as Purazzo grounded Park for the easy defense of the title. Park got some high spots in, but couldn't escape the Fujiwara Armbar.

Winner: IWC Lightning Champion Deonna Purazzo @ 4:54 to retain the title.

A video package is shown recapping the exploits of The Briscoe Brothers and their banning from The Globe Theater. It ends with a promo from The Briscoes challenging Bandido and any other illegal to a match at IWC Second Strike on February 23.

 

3. Debut Match: 

[Técnico] Kraneo

vs

[Rudo] Darkness Crabtree

As a change of pace, we now have an utterly bizarre contest. Kraneo is a huge dancing man, while Darkness Crabtree seems to be an utterly gentleman, who even has trouble getting into the ring. Kraneo dominates early, until Crabtree grabs some pills and swallows them. He unleashes a flurry of offense that is astonishing for a senior citizen. However the pills wear off quickly and Kraneo squahes him for the victory.

Winner: Kraneo @ 6:37.

 

We get hype for next week where we will get three IWC Title Tournament matches including: Mercedes Martinez vs Rey Fénix, Daniel Makabe vs Atlantis, and Jordynne Grace vs Kairi Hojo.

 

4. IWC Title Tournament First Round Match: 

[Técnico] LA Park

vs

[Rudo] Rey Hechicero

Hechicero makes an exciting entrance carrying fireballs along with Los Maestros, while LA Park gets the biggest ovation while he is accompanied by his son.

This had a big time feel as we get the mat master vs the wild dancing skeleton. It starts off as a regular match, until Maestros attack Park outside of the ring. A wild brawl erupts with the Park family and Los Maestros outside of the ring, including Park throwing chairs and anything he can grab at Hechicero. After they get back in the ring Hechicero ties up Park in a submission, but he gets to the ropes. A spear out of nowhere gives Park the win.

Winner: LA Park @ 19:19.
