Expo Lucha Philly Adds Konnan History of Lucha In ECW & It's Lasting Impact Q&A For VIP Attendees
Expo Lucha, the Masked Republic produced lucha libre fan convention, announced earlier this year that the next stop on the national tour for the convention will be Philadelphia, PA on August 15-16, 2020 at the historic 2300 Arena to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the luchadores arriving in ECW and the lasting impact they have had on the wrestling business.
And now, it has been announced that for VIP Platinum and VIP Gold (limited remain) attendees, the luchador and power broker most responsible for the 25 years we have all spent under the influence of lucha libre, Konnan, will host a special private Question and Answer session. Taking place Friday night, August 14th, Konnan and guests will talk about exactly how he, Rey Mysterio, Psychosis, Juventud Guerrera, La Parka and others came to be part of the extreme revolution and what came next. From ECW to WCW to WWE to Impact Wrestling, MLW and beyond plus his personal journey back to Mexico, no topic or question is off limits. Attendees will also get a chance to ask their own questions - and if you know Konnan,you know he's known for keepin' it 100!
There are only two ways to be able to attend this special private Expo Lucha Konnan Q&A. One is to purchase a VIP package from ExpoLucha.com.
