A few weeks ago I wrote that Alberto Del Patron (Del Rio) had announced a new promotion he was heading up, Nacion Lucha Libre. Today he spoke with the Miami Herald to talk about the promotion and the fact that Nacion Lucha Libre will be offering health and life insurance to all its performers.
El Patron heads this promotion with a legendary name in the wrestling world, Chavo Guerrero Jr. Both men are pushing the fact that Nacion Lucha Libre will offer health insurance, life insurance, and retirement to all their workers.
Below are some of the comments he made to the Herald:
“We’re always going to have doctors. Our wrestlers are going to have health insurance and life insurance. Stuff they don’t have in any other companies.”
“Most of the companies, including WWE, they have their own doctors. They don’t provide you with health insurance. They force you to get your own health insurance. If you don’t get your own insurance, you’re not allowed to perform. If anything happens in their shows, yes you’re completely covered, which I think is the only company doing that. Me, I remember having a terrible injury about eight years ago and they took care of everything. I think they’re the only company doing that but they don’t actually provide you with health insurance. They’re just covered in their events.”
