A galaxy of the best wrestlers on the planet will converge on Terminal 5 in New York City on April 23 to compete at Battlestarr 2020. The quarterfinals of the Pure Title tournament are among the featured attractions of what is guaranteed to be an incredible night of the fast-paced, hard-hitting, in-your-face action that only Ring of Honor can deliver. Battlestarr 2020 will be ROH’s first appearance in New York City since Manhattan Mayhem last July, which was highlighted by the Briscoes winning the ROH World Tag Team Title from Guerrillas of Destiny in a street fight that tore the house down.
Due to popular demand, ROH announced recently that it was bringing back the Pure Title, which had been an active championship from 2004-2006. In matches contested under Pure rules, closed-fist punches were illegal, and each competitor was allowed three rope breaks to stop submission holds and pinfalls during the match; after that, pinfalls and submission holds, on or under the ropes, would be legal.
After Chris Dickinson yesterday, Major League Wrestling (MLW) today announced Laredo Kid will compete at MLW: Intimidation Games Saturday, April 18 at Cicero Stadium in Chicago. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.
Laredo Kid has returned to MLW looking to ignite the road to a big 2020. Quickly becoming one of Mexico’s most formidable Luchadores, now Laredo Kid eyes gold in Major League Wrestling. “Chicago fans have been a big part of MLW’s success, so we’ve decided to return with a super stacked card and it starts with reintroducing great talent like Laredo Kid,” said MLW CEO and Founder Court Bauer. “This is a fan appreciation night that I expect will blow your mind when you see the full card.”
A decorated high-flying luchador, Laredo Kid has won Mexico’s World Trios Championship as well as the World Cruiserweight title, which he currently holds. Unleashing the 450º Splash, Springboard Double Corkscrew Plancha and an innovative 630º Splash, Laredo is exhilarating luchador to experience live. League officials expect to reveal his opponent in the next few weeks.
