Konan’s NFTs are digital collectibles that feature video footages and insights celebrating the 25th-anniversary of moments from a 1996 trios match. Konnan achieved prominence as a Lucha Libre superstar both in Mexico and America – even without the benefit of WWE machinery. He is also credited for introducing the sport to the rest of the world while discovering new talents like Rey Mysterio.
Konan’s NFT Collection is in partnership with Masked Republic®. It is the media outfit distributing wrestling content and representing the biggest stars of the industry. It is also in the business of producing Lucha libre merchandise. Lucha Libre is the term used in Mexico for professional wrestling which means freestyle wrestling.
Konnan’s NFTs are from his personal tapes
The NFT Collection called “Konnan’s Signature Moments” are three videos from the Lucha Libre Superstar’s personal tapes. Thus, it is a rare and prized collectible.
The first video celebrates the 25th anniversary of the trios match in Tijuana top-billed by Konnan and Psicosis. The second features Rey Mysterio flying off a ladder to interfere in a mask vs. mask match pitting Psicosis against Ultraman 2000. Lastly, the third video is a throwback of Mysterio wrestling it out with Juventud Guerrera in a dusty bull ring. These two fighters went on to redefine the WCW and WWE industry.
NFTs revealing the true greats of the sport
Lucha Libre has an established merchandise market. The sport tends to attract die-hard fans who are always eager to get their hands on masks, magazines, action figures and autographs sold as official items and images of their favorite stars. Thus, it is easy to know which wrestling stars can draw commercial success. NFTs take this to the next level by revealing who the true greats of the sports are which can be immortalized as an NFT.
