AUSTIN ARIES SIGNS ON FOR JULY 25 MATCH AS MLW RETURNS TO NYC
Who will the middleweight fight in the Big Apple?
Austin Aries has returned to Major League Wrestling with a force. The Milwaukee native has set his sights on MLW's return to New York City for the next stage as he continues his march up the MLW rankings.
MLW today announced Austin Aries will compete at MLW: Never Say Never '19 at the Melrose Ballroom in New York City on July 25. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.
Tickets start at $20 at MLWTickets.com.
League officials are negotiating with an undisclosed wrestler for Aries' July 25th bout. More details on this match are expected soon.
Aries, an outspoken and awesome athlete, has been uncharacteristically coy with his goals and intentions thus far in his return to MLW.
Sources close to his camp believe Aries is targeting the middleweight division and a possible pursuit of the World Middleweight Championship. Others insist Aries' return is very personal with a possible vendetta in play.
One thing is for sure: Aries is putting in the work. Aries has been training extensively with former UFC Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir in Las Vegas for the past several months.
