Aerostar challengers Alex Hammerstone for National Openweight Title January 11 in Dallas AAA luchador looks to claim gold at Dallas TV taping

AAA Lucha Libre will send the speculator luchador Aerostar to challenge Alex Hammerstone for the National Openweight Championship in Dallas January 11.

Major League Wrestling today announced National Openweight Champion Alex Hammerstone vs. Aerostar for the National Openweight Championship will compete at MLW: Zero Hour at the NYTEX Sports Centre in the greater Dallas/Ft. Worth area on Saturday January 11. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.

One of the top high flyers in the sport, fans will be awestruck with Aerostar’s aerial feats in and out of the ring January 11 in Dallas.

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. Now Aerostar looks to take flight and prove he is major league material and bring MLW gold back to Mexico.

In order to do so, Aerostar will be tasked with overcoming the elitist powerhouse Alex Hammerstone. Vanquishing all challengers since being crowned the inaugural National Openweight Champion June 1, Hammerstone has proven to be arguably the ace of The Dynasty with his dominance in 2019.

Going into this title bout Hammerstone pledges to be a “real American,” promising to unleash “Patriot missiles” on the masterful Mexican luchador Aerostar.

With national pride on the line for Hammerstone, the champ has gone as far as to vow to unmask Aerostar in the ultimate humiliation for a luchador… but will he be ready for an unrelenting sky combat attack by Aerostar?

See Aerostar challenge Alex Hammerstone for the National Openweight title LIVE January 11. Tickets start at $15!
