CMLL Costa Rica is a lucha libre promotion based in Costa Rica, once billed as a subsidiary of Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre.


In 2014 Escualo and Ares created the lucha promotion following an agreement with AULL. On March 22, 2014 would be the date that was held the first event of AULL Costa Rica which they then began to hold events on a monthly basis.

On November 18, 2014, the promotion officially announced the name change from AULL Costa Rica to Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre Costa Rica (CMLL Costa Rica). This was explained as a part of an agreement made with the Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL). CMLL Costa Rica used modified versions of the logos of CMLL. CMLL didn't publicly acknowledged the relationship with the company (something they've done with REINA, NJPW and others in the past), while CMLL Costa Rica did push CMLL events.

After the name change, CMLL and United States independent wrestlers have appeared in Costa Rica including Estrellita, Mr. Niebla, Puma King, Shocker, Titan, Jay Lethal & Matt Sydal.

Costa Rica Wrestling Embassy


On December 18, 2016, the promotion was rebranded as Costa Rica Wrestling Embassy (CWE) due to the working relationship they had with CMLL coming to an end.
