Recently speaking at MoffettNathanson’s Inaugural Technology, Media, and Telecom Conference, WWE CEO Nick Khan disclosed that there have been internal discussions about the possibility of launching a new lucha libre oriented show. He said,
“Ideally for us, we would go every day of the week, as long as there is a unique product we can put on the air and resonate. Something we’ve discussed internally; lucha libre, which is big in Mexico and Latin America, to start something like that down the road. This would be well after US and UK media rights are settled, the synergies are all in place and we have our legs under us with [TKO Group], that’s something that’s interesting to us, especially with the growing Hispanic audience in the US. We over-index in the Hispanic community already with our English content. To target that is something of interest for us.”
In recent times, WWE has been actively broadening its reach in global markets. This includes hosting the Backlash 2023 pay-per-view event in Puerto Rico, an upcoming event scheduled in India, Clash at the Castle 2022 in the UK, and the anticipated revival of NXT UK as NXT Europe.
