This Saturday night, March 13th, stars from AAA and Lucha Underground will descend upon the state of Georgia for Mucha Lucha ATL’s “Mucha Lucha Mania” in an epic event for the promotion as the vacant Perros del Mal Light Heavyweight Championship will be crowned when AAA/Lucha Underground stars Fenix, Pentagon Jr., and Drago clash with MLA Champion Tigre del Ring in a Fatal 4-Way!
In the opener Georgia tag teams The Lynch Mob and Suicide Squad will clash as they take their Peach State rivalry to Mucha Lucha ATL. Also, in what could be a controversial matchup amongst the Hispanic audience Nigel Trump battles exciting youngster David Tita.
In the first title bout Georgia Wrestling Champion Jimmy Rave will defend his title against the man he beat for the title last June, Chip Day. The former TNA and ROH star, Rave, trained Day and the two have faced each other dozens of times of the past few years. Day has been looking to get a shot at the title ever since losing it and finally gets his shot at “Mucha Lucha Mania.”
Former Dragon Gate USA/EVOLVE star AR Fox will face off against DTU star Septimo Dragon in a singles match that could end up being a show stealer. The high flying Fox had a show stealer in 2013 against Flamita in Dragon’s home promotion DTU during Fox’s 2013 tour of Mexico. This will be the first time these two high flying daredevils have been in the ring together.
In what should be a wild Trios the team of the LWO: Lince Dorado, Serpentico, and Oraculo will face the team of Bestia 666, Mr. 450, and Vary Morales. The colorful tandem of Dorada, Serpentico, and Oraculo have been making waves on the Independents in America as an exciting trio while Bestia, 450, and Morales will be teaming for the first time. Bestia is the son of the legendary Damian 666 and has become one of the top Independent Jr. Heavyweights in Mexico, and has gotten a lot of praise for his appearances in America as well which has included a WildKat Championship run for Louisiana based WildKat Promotions. Mr. 450 has started to gain a lot of buzz internationally over the past year having appeared several times for AAA and his recent show stealing performance in Puerto Rico against the legendary Rey Misterio Jr. last month. They will be teaming with youngster Vary Morales who will be the wildcard in this match.
In the Main Event the Georgia crowd will get a huge treat as AAA/Lucha Underground stars Pentagon Jr., Fenix, and Drago take their incredible ability to the Peach State and will be vying for the vacant Perros del Mal Light Heavyweight Championship in a Fatal 4-Way that will also include the Mucha Lucha ATL Champion Tigre del Ring. Pentagon Jr., Fenix, and Drago have become three of the most popular luchadors in Mexico with a big following in America and each one will look to add to their trophy case in this match while Tigre del Ring looks to proof that he belongs in the same discussions with these lucha stars.
