Lucha Libre Promoter Murdered

Lucha Libre Promoter Murdered

On Sunday, several armed men entered a restaurant in Irapuato, Guanajuato, where Generación XXI Promoter Gerardo Martín Landeros Mendiola was eating lunch, and shot him multiple times. They then sped off in a gray van. He sadly died before the paramedics could arrive. The feeling in Mexico is that it was a targeted execution as nobody else was shot.

There was a Generación XXI show planned for later that Sunday but was obviously canceled. Their next show is scheduled for 16th February, but that is up in the air right now, as is the future of the promotion.

Generación XXI was launched in 2016 and had been running about 20 shows per year using stars like LA Park, Rush, Bandido, and Blue Demon Jr. mixed with local talents.
