Tension between Konnan, de la Renta?


Salina de la Renta of Promociones Dorado says she is the connection for Latin American talent in all forms of entertainment, including professional wrestling. But it seems her “connection” isn’t so strong with one legendary lucha libre star.

Is there an issue between the impresaria of Promociones Dorado and legendary wrestler and powerbroker Konnan?

Backstage during the August 3 episode of FUSION, MLW cameras were on hand as Konnan caught up with Rey Fenix, one half of the World Tag Team Champion Lucha Bros, who are represented by de la Renta’s Promociones Dorado.

On camera, Konnan, who is recognized for discovering and first showcasing Fenix and Pentagon, was heard discussing contracts and money with Fenix. Here’s a transcript of the conversation between Fenix and Konnan:

Konnan: “Real quick. Look, I told you about the contract. Did you check that out?”
Fenix: “Yeah. I checked the contract.”
Konnan: “OK. The dinero?”
Fenix: “Yeah. I checked the money. I talk with my brother.”
Konnan: “Okay. This is the most important thing you gotta tell your brother …”

At that point, de la Renta and the other half of the World Tag Team Champs, Pentagon Jr., interrupted the Fenix-Konnan conversation. Pentagon Jr. was apparently happy to see Konnan, as evidenced by the warm embrace the two attampted to share before being stopped by de la Renta. On the other hand, Salina was certainly not pleased to see Fenix and Konnan conversing.

“I told you to not talk to him,” de la Renta said to Fenix.

She then turned to Konnan.

“Mind your own business, Konnan,” de la Renta said with a glare only she can pull off.

As de la Renta led the Lucha Bros away from Konnan, the legendary luchador was left simply holding his palms to the sky wondering what just happened.
