MLW sent the following, announcing a tag team title match for their upcoming TV tapings:
NEW YORK – Major League Wrestling today announced a World Tag Team Title Fight to take place at the first-ever Battle Riot event on July 19th in New York City. Aerostar and Drago (representing AAA Lucha Libre) vs. World Tag Team Champions Pentagon Jr. & Rey Fenix (presented by Salina de la Renta) is signed to take place at the Melrose Ballroom in Queens, NY.
Drago and Aerostar, the former AAA Tag Team Champions, will compete for the first time in New York City as a team and look to showcase their uncanny high-flying style as well as win championship gold in the Big Apple.
Dawning an aviator themed mask, this airborne luchador has a reputation for his fearless G-force jumps off the top rope and even arena lighting trusses!
His partner, Drago, looks like a creature out of Game of Thrones and is in fact an anime come to life! With his ghoulish long tongue that spits an unknown substance and his astonishing arsenal of moves, Drago is one of the more fascinating AAA luchadores.
Representing AAA, Aerostar and Drago look to bring gold home to Mexico. Can they? Find out LIVE on July 19th! [Buy tickets]
League officials have confirmed that if the reigning champions lose to ACH and Rich Swann next week at MLW’s Orlando event, ACH and Swann will defend against Hart Foundation on July 19th.
Both Aerostar and Drago will also compete in the Battle Riot!
The Battle Riot match will air as a 2 hour special on beIN SPORTS.
Tickets are available now at: https://mlwnyc.eventbrite.com.
The winner of the 40-man Battle Riot will receive a World Title shot anytime, anywhere. Elimination is by pinfall, submission or by throwing an individual over the top rope in this no DQ mega match. [Buy tickets]
