Front Runner to bring Mexican Wresting to UK screens for the first time


Mexico’s biggest wrestling promotion Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide is set to be broadcast on UK television for the first time in its history.


It's part of a new deal with free-to-air sports channel Front Runner. The first show will be aired on Wednesday 14th June at 9pm on Sky channel 469 (Front Runner 1) and Freeview/YouView channel 91.

The fast action wrestling style of Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide, which is celebrating its 25-year anniversary this year, offers wrestling fans the chance to see some of the world’s greatest luchador wrestlers such as Johnny Mundo, Angelico, La Parka, Super Fly, Drago and luchadora Taya.

The Mexican promotion showcases the best ‘lucha libre’ style wrestling, focusing on rapid sequences of chain and grapple wrestling maneuvers as well as high-flying offence from the top ropes. Many of the international competitors wear masks when competing.

Ross Ravago, from Front Runner said: 
“We are thrilled to be able to broadcast one of the biggest wrestling company’s to UK wrestling fans and believe that it is a fantastic alternative to similar programmes already shown in the UK. Wrestling has a long heritage both here in the UK and in Mexico and we are delighted to be able to gain the rights to broadcast this world renowned weekly episodic show, every Wednesday night from 9pm.”
