EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — New Era Wrestling is bringing pro wrestlers from around the world to El Paso to bring unique entertainment to locals and to promote the city.
The first Lucha Libre show in El Paso was set for Friday at El Maida Shrine in Northeast El Paso.
“This is where pro wrestling friendships are made,” said El Paso’s own pro wrestler Dulce Tormenta, or Sweet Storm. “You know we respect each other but when it comes to being inside of the ring, that respect is totally lost. Obviously, you do want to be the one that ends up with your hand raised up.”
Her family owns New Era Wrestling and it was her brothers who inspired her to get in the ring.
“These guys are spectacular. It was always like wrestlers, but you see them jump off the top rope onto this stage after I’ve seen how they built it. These guys are amazing athletes,” said El Maida Shrine Recorder John Thomas.
They promised Friday’s show is going to be amazing.
“Your mind’s going to be blown to so many surprises. So many things happening tonight,” said Dulce Tormenta.
She is just one of the wrestlers who will perform in Friday’s show, inspired to represent El Paso in the ring and beyond the Borderland.
“This is just the start of Sweet Storm. I’m not done yet. So there’s so much ahead of me. So many things I want to accomplish and what better way than to have El Paso behind the back,” she said.
