Lucha Fiesta 2010
On July 19th 2010, Último Dragón will host his world famous Lucha Fiesta in Japan! In this unprecedented event Último Dragón returns to the Land of the Rising Sun as he brings to the shores of his homeland the lucha libre extravaganza he has shaped into THE international wrestling experience of the year.
The historical significance of this event reaches beyond the world-class talent that will step into the ring. In what is being considered the start of the globalization of lucha libre and Japanese professional wrestling, Lucha Fiesta 2010 will be sponsored for the first time ever by both the governments of Mexico AND Japan!
In a joint effort to commemorate those two countries’ 400th year anniversary of friendship and strong working relationships both governments have decided to celebrate this 400th year anniversary with diverse events and cultural exchanges that showcase both nations unique and distinct rituals.
What started out as nautical mishap over four centuries ago has lead to an international celebration of diversity and friendship that is emulated in the persona of Último Dragón himself. A man born and raised in Tokyo who moved to Mexico City to become embraced in the hearts of the citizens there and the lucha libre fans around the world.
From the shipwreck of the Spanish merchant ship “San Francisco” on the rocky shores of the Tokyo Bay in 1609 to the ringing of the final bell in Lucha Fiesta 2010, the last four hundreds of international harmony between Mexico and Japan will be culminated in an energetic display of lucha libre excellence and athletic superiority highlighted by Último Dragón, the proud product of two great nations with one common friendship.
Through years of hard work and dedication Último Dragón has not only perfected his in-ring skills but more importantly he has honed his ability to translate what he does before thousands of fans nightly to the millions of supporters he has in the outside world. By becoming a social ambassador and active advocate for causes independent of the lucha libre realm Último Dragón has translated his drive and determination into uniting cultures and people together as one.
Último Dragón is the ONLY wrestler in the world to have traveled extensively to Cuba and make in-roads to China to spread not only lucha libre and the strong style of Japanese Pro Wrestling but to spread the harmonious growth of international brotherhood. The next phase in Último Dragón’s quest is to bring his talent and the talents of many of the hard working wrestlers he has gathered from around the globe into the United States so that the eager American fans can witness first hand the growing phenomena that this time-honored sport and unique art form has become.
