HUGE UPDATE with 20 FULL MATCH VIDEOS! UK Talent Announced!
WE ARE CLOSING IN ON THE END OF OUR CAMPAIGN AND STILL HAVE A HUGE HUGE WAY TO GO! PLEASE PICK OUT A GREAT REWARD AND BACK US AND HELP SPREAD THE WORD DURING OUR HOME STRETCH! THANKS!
As we said at launch, one of the opportunities that Viva L.A. Lucha will afford is for one UK talent to break out and be seen here in the U.S. and in front of Konnan and the lucha eyes that will be on the show.
We reached out to Fighting Spirit Magazine (http://www.fightingspiritmagazine.co.uk/) to help us compile a list of 21 UK wrestlers who now have a chance to be part of the Viva L.A. Lucha tapings if we can make this a reality with your backing and support!
If we are successfully funded, backers who have backed at the reward levels that get to vote will receive a ballot with all 21 names and then it will be up to YOU who gets the opportunity!
In order to help you get familiar with the UK talent, we are not only going to provide their names below, but a link to one match for each of them.
Be sure to check out the list carefully as many of the matches feature this top UK talent against some pretty big names including Daniel Bryan (Brian Danielson), Finlay, Dragon Gate's Akira Tozawa, WWE's Justin Gabriel, WWE/NXT's Adrian Neville (a.k.a. Pac), TNA's Rockstar Spud, Brian Kendrick, Sami Callihan, Davey Richards, and some others you may recognize.
What we have learned over the past year is that there is an incredible UK wrestling scene that most outside the region are completely oblivious to, and we want to help change that! This also means UK fans, the time is NOW to help get one of your favorite talents recognized across the pond! But we need your help backing the project to make it happen!
