The Crash Lucha Libre, also referred to as simply The Crash, is a lucha libre (Mexican professional wrestling) promotion based in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. The promotion largely runs its events in Tijuana, Mexico City, and Monterrey. The promotion currently has working relationships with Seattle, Washington's Defy Wrestling[1], Orlando, Florida's Major League Wrestling[2] and Monterrey's Promociones MDA. The Crash previously had a working relationship with Impact Wrestling until Konnan, the intermediary between the two promotions, left The Crash.[3][4][5][6][7]

The Crash is considered the third largest professional wrestling promotion in Mexico after the much older Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre and Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide promotions[8] and has been touted as the fastest growing lucha libre company in the world.[1] The promotion uses wrestlers from the Mexican and American independent circuit, notably wrestlers from Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. On April 6, 2018, The Crash held its first independently promoted show in the United States at The Sugar Mill in New Orleans, Louisiana.[9]
