Lucha Forever is planning some big things for the UK independent wrestling scene and you can watch their debut show live on FloSlam next Monday (April 17).

Your FloSlam subscription gets you access to the live event, replays and our ever expanding library of past wrestling events.

The debut event is set to feature some exciting matches and the promotion is promising some fun surprises for both the sold-out live audience and the fans tuning in to the FloSlam stream.

In the main event, Shane Strickland and Travis Banks will battle it out to crown the first ever Lucha Forever champion. Strickland is one of the most exciting talents on the independent scene. A two-time CZW Wired TV Championship holder and one third of the former Lucha Underground trios champions, Strickland is a thrill-a-minute style wrestler.

Banks is a known commodity, especially in the UK scene, but he had one of his most impressive weekends at #MoreThanMania. Banks teamed with TK Cooper as South Pacific Power Trip and had two of the best matches of the weekend, taking on Chris Dickinson and Jaka at the WWN Supershow and the team of Sami Callihan and Strickland at Progress: Orlando.

Callihan will also be in action when he takes on one of the most exciting high flyers in the game in Will Ospreay. The two have met in multi-man matches before, but the Lucha Forever match will be the first time the two battled in singles action.

The current card for the event includes:

  • ​Travis Banks v Shane Strickland for the inaugural Lucha Forever Championship
  • Will Ospreay v Sami Callihan
  • Alex Windsor v Toni Storm
  • CCK & Damian Dunne v El Ligero, Drew Parker & Bea Priestley
  • Ryan Smile v Kip Sabian v Kelly Sixx v Ashley Dunn v Connor Mills
  • Nixon Newell appearing in her last UK Indy Appearance
  • Two other special matches on the night featuring stars featured on WWE & TNA
