Big Lucha Libre Event Canceled After Andrade El Idolo, RUSH, and More Stars Pull Out

Federacion Wrestling issued a press release (shared below thanks to LuchaBlog) announcing that their debut show, which was set for this Saturday June 19th, has now been canceled and will be postponed due to "logistical issues." Fans who purchased a ticket must show proof of purchase in order to get a refund.

This news comes shortly after several top stars, including AEW's Andrade El Idolo and ROH world champion RUSH announced that they would no longer be appearing at the event. Andrade state in a tweet that "an agreement was not reached," with RUSH and the rest of La Faccion de Ingobernable writing something similar after.

On today's Wrestling Observer Radio Dave Meltzer added that he believes the promotion is now "dead in the water" after failing to deliver on their debut show, citing that the profits from the gate and potential PPV buys would not be able to cover the expenses they had already been made.
