With him signing an exclusive United States deal, he’ll no longer be able to work for MLW. Thus, MLW had to make some changes to their main event of the show on April 4th. They sent out the following:
PENTAGON-PARK TO MAIN EVENT APRIL 4 CARD; RUSH PULLED FROM MATCH
With great reluctance Rush has been forced to withdraw from his April 4th match against LA Park.
Despite efforts by MLW Rush was pulled due to the insistence of a third party promoter.
“This is a match and organization Rush wanted to be a part of but sometimes politics get in the way and that’s what this comes down to: politics,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer.
Pentagon Jr. vs. LA Park II Signed for April 4th in New York City
MLW matchmakers moved quickly to reshape the April 4th card with a big bout for a global stage. That bout will be a rematch of an encounter voted on by fans as the match of the year for the promotion: Pentagón vs. Jr. LA Park.
Two eras of greatness in lucha libre will collide as the face of death – the legendary hall of famer LA Park clashes against the man without fear Pentagón Jr in the sequel to one of MLW’s most wild brawls ever.
Pentagón Jr. vs. LA Park II will now serve as one of two main events for the April 4th card at the Melrose Ballroom in Queens, NY.
The April 4th card now also has an official title: MLW: Rise of the Renegades.
Tickets start at just $20 at MLWTickets.com for this card. This a fan appreciate ticket available for $30 that enables fans GA access to both the April 4th and April 5th cards (that’s $15 a night!).
More matches will be announced in the weeks and months to come.
