MLW issued the following press release to announce the addition of Arez for the July 10 event in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at 2300 Arena.

Cesar Duran and Azteca Underground have done it again in inking another big selection in Arez. The master of “strange style”, Arez is one of the hottest luchadores to cross the border in years.
Mentored by the legendary Blue Demon Jr., Arez’s speed and technique are a challenge for opponents to keep pace with.
“I think it’s safe to say who is owning this draft, no?,” said Cesar Duran in a statement to MLW.com. “Arez’s mission in MLW is quite simple: it’s to collect gold and masks in the name of Azteca! See you in just a few weeks, amigos.”
How will Arez fair in Philly next month? We’ll find out in just a few weeks when he makes his MLW debut July 10th in Philadelphia at the 2300 Arena (buy tickets).
Arez’s bio is now available at: https://mlw.com/arez/.
