A fully designed, full-cast scripted audio adventure podcast from the creator of The Pantheon that honors the world of the Luchador films that were created in Mexico in the 1960s and 1970s.

Through rich sound design and original music The Luchador: 1,000 Fights of El Fuego Fuerte   creates an experience like a TV show for your ears or an epic audio book fully acted out.

The first season, El Fuego Fuerte Contra Las Mujeres Vampiras,  sees the heroic champion of Mexico City battle a coven of ancient Aztec vampires while wrestling with his past mistakes. Features the voice acting debuts of some of the most unique personas in wrestling including AEW’s Danhausen, Luchasaurus (aka “Killswitch”), and Colt Cabana. WWE and ECW legend Raven makes his voice acting debut as well.

The upcoming second season, El Fuego Fuerte on the Forbidden Mountain,  will send our heroes to a remote village in the Sierra Madre mountains for a Lucha Libre tournament upended by a sinister alchemist and the great beast at his command. At nine episodes it will almost be twice as long as the first season of The Luchador.  Cast members announced so far include Chavo Guerrero (WWE, WCW, Netflix’s GLOW, A24’s The Iron Claw), Joseph Ruud (aka Erik Rowan of WWE’s Wyatt Family) and recent AEW Women’s World Champion Hikaru Shida. More cast announcements still to come!

The Luchador  is absolutely a labor of love from the cast and crew and seeks to highlight a part of Mexican culture that deserves to be celebrated. We would love to keep making this show for many more years to come. It would not be possible without our amazing listeners without whom none of this would be worth it.

Supporting The Luchador  on Patreon is the best way to make sure we can make all 1,000 of El Fuego Fuerte’s fights a reality.
