sek69 Posted July 8, 2019 Report Share Posted July 8, 2019 CMLL announced that Paco Alonso passed away yesterday, he was only 65. He was only the third person to run CMLL in its 86 year history after his father Salvador Lutteroth and his son Salvador (Chavo) Jr. His daughter Sophia has been more visible recently as the face of the company in terms of management, but Paco was always a hands off guy and there was no indication he was battling any health issues. Even the announcement of his death to the crowd at yesterday's show seemed to be kept secret, as the roster was in the ring for it and more than a couple seemed to react like they were hearing about it for the first time. It will be interesting to see how it changes the way CMLL operates, if at all. For all his aloofness, Paco was known as someone who'd hold grudges forever, and being on his shit list meant you'd never work for the company again. There was some noticeable change in that policy recent, with guys like LA Park showing up and having the Lucha Bros work both CMLL and AAA at the same time. Sophia just by appearing on CMLL shows is already seemingly more involved than her father was, so it will be interesting to see what comes next.
