Nick Khan Reveals WWE Have Discussed A Lucha Show, Wants To Have Shows On Every Day

Nick Khan reveals some new desires from WWE regarding their programming.

In this era, with the recent popularity surge of Latino World Era, WWE have a litany of luchador competitors they can use for a possible show. While it may not be perfect for a long run of weekly shows, a one off event could be highly entertaining.

Speaking at the MoffettNathanson’s Inaugural Technology, Media, and Telecom Conference, Nick Khan discussed the potential of adding more WWE content, including a possible Lucha show.

“Ideally for us, we would go every day of the week, as long as there is a unique product we can put on the air and resonate. Something we’ve discussed internally; lucha libre, which is big in Mexico and Latin America, to start something like that down the road. This would be well after US and UK media rights are settled, the synergies are all in place and we have our legs under us with [TKO Group], that’s something that’s interesting to us, especially with the growing Hispanic audience in the US. We over-index in the Hispanic community already with our English content. To target that is something of interest for us,”

We will have to wait and see if WWE will decide to add a Latin America centered program to their programming but with the recent success of WWE Backlash, it is absolutely possible.
