Chaotic Situation in NYC Following Independent Lucha Show

Mike Killam

There appears to be a heated situation involving independent lucha company Fighting Spirit Wrestling and Amaro Productions, following a show this weekend in Queens, NY that featured former WWE talents, and stars flown in from all over the world. 

The show, held at the ELMCOR Center, drew much worse than expected, bringing in less than 200 fans, resulting in "an entire locker room" being screwed over, according to former WWE Superstar Chris Masters. 

PWInsider has since updated the story, after being contacted by FSW owner Joel Maximo, who claims he has given personal checks to all performers booked through him. The conflict arose because FSW also used Amaro Productions to book talents separately, and there is a debate as to who is responsible for the failures and costs of the event.
