Recently, Aramis was announced as a new signing for MLW as he is hoping to bring the next generation of Lucha Libre to America.
Aramis is scheduled to debut on Saturday, July 10 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania which will also feature the third Battle Riot match.
Speaking with Sports Illustrated, Aramis opened up about his journey with wrestling which began when he was only 11 years old and the influence Konnan has had on his career.
“This dream began when I was five years old,” Aramís says through a translator. “Then I knew with all certainty when my dad took me to my first training session. When I stepped in the ring, I knew I would never leave. My love, admiration, and respect for this have only grown since.”
He continued, “Konnan has been a fundamental part of my career, and I will always be grateful to him for believing in me. Because of that, AAA has trusted and supported me. Now I have even more of a chance to show my style of fighting. It has even opened the door to my new house, which is MLW.”
He added later, “I am so proud to represent Mexico in the United States. I want to set an example. I will show my struggle in the ring and my desire to overcome the toughest battles. I am so very grateful for this opportunity, and I cannot wait to get in the ring and show the world what I can do.”
