MLW issued the following press release to announce a co-promoted event with The Crash on October 5 in Tijuana, Mexico.
Major League Wrestling and The Crash Lucha Libre’s strategic alliance will commence on October 5 with a historic co-promoted card in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico.
The marquee event presented by the two organizations will be the first-ever MLW Fusion TV taping emanating from Mexico.
The Crash will host the event at the historic Auditorio Fausto Gutierrez, which seats over 5,000 fans.
Tickets will go on sale this September at www.taquillaexpress.com. More information on on-sale date and more will be revealed soon.
“This partnership is starting with a bang,” said MLW CEO and founder Court Bauer. “One of the immediate goals of this partnership was to collaborate on an event of this size and scope. Tijuana is one of the hottest cities for lucha in the world and has been for decades. For The Crash to host this monumental event is history in the making for us, the sport and our fans.”
The card will feature top ranked MLW wrestlers and represents the first-time MLW has united with another company to present a co-promoted event.
MLW is working with the Crash to offer fan packages to fans interested in journeying to Tijuana for the October 5 event.
The October 5th event will be filmed for MLW FUSION and air in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico on beIN SPORTS.
Based out of Tijuana, Baja California in Mexico, The Crash is widely recognized as a destination to see premier luchadores and up-and-coming athletes showcased in some of the most spectacular high-flying encounters in the sport.
The partnership between the two organizations continues Major League Wrestling’s strategic alliances with international federations to create a unified global system to help introduce the sport to new markets, exchange talent, collaborate on content and develop opportunities for fans, athletes and the sport.
It is MLW’s mission that these efforts present dream matches, easily accessible high quality content and advancements in the sport.
Powell’s POV: It’s cool to see the new alliance between the two promotions lead to a co-promoted show so quickly. It will be fun to see MLW go south of the border for this event and to see wrestlers from The Crash featured prominently on the weekly Fusion show. We are looking for reports from all MLW events.
