In their press release trough Super Luchas, they stated about the new Aro Lucha tapings, “After just over a month after the start of its collective financing campaign, the company Aro Lucha has had great success in its first stage of collection and has captivated 168 investors, which has meant the sum of $102,444. Given this, the great visible image of the company, the talented and renowned Rey Mysterio, who is also one of the main investors, has announced that the company will enter to make a new section of television event recordings.”
The announcement comes weeks after Aro Lucha’s CEO, Jason Brown, announced that former WWE, WCW and Impact Wrestling booker Vince Russo was no longer working with the Lucha Libre promotion. Brown stated in a Q/A, “Vince was hired as a 3rd party, independent contractor, to review scripts, storylines for characters, plot points, and literary elements for Aro Lucha & Konnan, our current Head Writer”.
