Well, AroLucha is still up and kicking.
The company, founded in 2017, hasn't run a show in three and a half years, with no sign on return on investment for those that did invest. Fortunately, Fightful sarcastically invested for the sake of content, and we've got some. Outside of a CBD sales program we were contacted about, there hasn't been much on AroLucha the last few years. Until now!
Fightful received the following email from AroLucha:
To Our Investors,
We've had a long hard fight, but that's what Lucha Libre is...it's a fight. And we're not stopping, that's why we've just added some strategic partners to our pivot. Meet Tom Bancroft, CEO of Pencilish Animation Studios. Pencilish is now a strategic partner and has made an investment into our company.
Tom is a former Disney Animator, has created characters in some of the most popular and profitable animated features of all time, including The Lion King, Pocahontas, and Mulan. He has also directed 10 Feature Films and 8 TV Series. Pencilish is made up of former Disney, Sony, and Warner Brothers Alumni, including, Steve McBeth, a Fortune 100 Executive & Founding President at Disney Interactive Worldwide.
We have some exciting things planned and we're coming back stronger than ever...
Looking back, AroLucha had a robust roster that included Penta, Sammy Guevara, John Morrison, Thunder Rosa, and most importantly, Denise Salcedo.
