Spain is one of the European countries with the largest number of pro wrestling fans. A clear example was the attendance to the WWE live tour in November 2018. The attendances given to the shows in Madrid and Barcelona were greater than the rest of the European cities of the tour.
The Spanish wrestling is made up of some promotions, but three have unquestionable prominence: White Wolf Wrestling (better known as Triple W), RIOT Wrestling and Revolution Championship Wrestling (RCW). The first one is located in Madrid, while the other two are located in Barcelona.
Triple W was founded in 2008 under the name No Limits Wrestling. The company was renamed White Wolf Wrestling in 2011. The vast majority of its shows are held in Madrid, but Triple W has also presented shows in cities such as León. Triple W has the La Tabacalera social-cultural center in the Lavapiés neighborhood as its main venue.
RIOT Wrestling was founded in 2015 and has not only held shows in the city of Barcelona, but also in other places in Catalonia such as Sant Adrià de Besòs, Palau-solità and Plegamans, Pineda de Mar and Cerdanyola del Vallès.
Finally, Revolution Championship Wrestling was founded in 2010 and had its show debut in 2011. However, RCW has just started to present shows frequently since 2014. Since then it has stood out for its work with other promotions such as British Empire Wrestling from England, Centro de Treinos de Wrestling from Portugal and Stardom from Japan.
Without further ado, here I leave you six Spanish wrestlers that you will know this 2019.
#6 Alex Ace
Alex Ace is a 31-year-old wrestler from Barcelona who made his wrestling debut in 2016 at Spanish Pro Wrestling. Ace has worked in Spanish promotions such as RIOT Wrestling and BCN Wrestling, as well as in France (Association Biterroise de Catch) and in Japan (DDT, WRESTLE-1 and Team Dera).
He is especially known for his physical presence since his height is 2.06 m and his weight is 115 kg. He is without a doubt the best known Powerhouse of the Spanish circuit.
Thanks to the recommendation of William Regal, Alex Ace participated in a WWE Tryout in Germany in November 2018. Ace coincided there with prestigious European wrestlers such as Ilja Dragunov, Jurn Simmons and Emil Sitoci.
The biggest achievement of his career so far was his participation at King of DDT 2018. He was eliminated in the first round by Shunma Katsumata.
