Top 15 Indie Mexican Wrestlers WWE NEEDS To Sign

It was 1996 and Ted Turner’s WCW was stomping a mud hole in Vince McMahon’s WWE during the Monday Night Wars. The New World Order was the hottest ticket around but the cruiserweight division was the unspoken hero of that era. The cruiserweight division introduced many American fans to Lucha Libre wrestling. Rey Mysterio Jr. showed us that you didn’t have to be a giant to put on great matches. Eddie Guerrero smoothly mixed high flying maneuvers combined with technical grappling.

Today, the WWE has recently expressed more interest in luchadores because of their Global Cruiser Weight Series and NXT brand. Manny Andrade (La Sombra), who was signed in ’15, has already made his NXT debut. WWE also signed Lince Dorado for the Global Cruiser Weight Series in March. The company has also pushed Mexican wrestlers within the last year by having Kalisto and Alberto Del Rio feud for the U.S. title for several months.

For the list, we decided to exclude anyone over forty because we doubt WWE will sign someone of that age unless they’re a box office draw. If a luchador has already worked for the WWE, we excluded them also. Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) and Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) are the biggest promotions in Mexico but in the United States they can still be considered an indie promotion. We can save the debate for what’s indie and what’s not for another day.

1 King Cuerno

Also known as El Hijo del Fantasma, King Cuerno is one of the better workers in the world. He is a technically gifted wrestler and may have the best suicide dive in the business. King Cuerno always finds success, as he's had championship reigns wherever he's gone. His lucha based wrestling has evolved into a well-rounded wrestler that doesn’t have many weaknesses. He can speak well on the mic and his attire has a dear head as a hat, which can be pretty intimidating to people. The dirt sheets have reported that WWE is interested in his talents but AAA and LU don’t want him performing in the Global Cruiser Weight Series. Probably because he has greatness oozing out of every orifice.
