The WWF had their version back in the 80s/90s.

Most every luchador worked in EMLL (now called CMLL). AAA was founded in the mid 90's and is still going strong.































In the 80's there was the UWA (Universal Wrestling Association) that lasted about 15 years. The rise of AAA pretty much put it out of business.































IWRG is still in business and operates much like our American indies, sometimes even co-promoting shows with other promotions. It could be considered like we think of ROH.































Juventud Guerrera tried to open his own promotion several years ago but it only lasted a few shows. Grand Prix Championship Wrestling Super-X.































The WWA (World Wrestling Association) doesn't seem to a regular promotion. Sometimes it's in business, sometimes it's not. It's been around since the mid 80's.































Checking around, there seems to be (and have been) quite a few "regional" promotions in Mexico, other than the big three of CMLL, UWA, and AAA, but they don't get mentioned by name much at all. Just inferred by most articles calling EMLL (or CMLL) the largest promotion.































The guys you list all worked for CMLL or UWA, and AAA for El Hijo Del Santo. They were generally acknowledged as making it to the "big leagues" as we often refer to our indy guys making it to the WWE or WCW without mentioning specifically which indy(s) they worked for. In other words, I couldn't find specific names for those defunct regional promotions in Mexico.
