Chik Tormenta to make MLW debut at Azteca Underground tapings

Tormenta vs. Holidead is set for the Friday, April 1 tapings.

A debut is set for MLW's Azteca Underground tapings in Dallas.

It was announced on Wednesday that Chik Tormenta will make her MLW debut against Holidead in a women's featherweight division match at the Azteca Underground tapings. The show is being held at Gilley's Dallas on April 1, which is the Friday of WrestleMania week.

Tormenta currently holds the Lucha Libre AAA World Mixed Tag Team titles with Arez.

MLW wrote about the match:

Cesar Duran has signed a women’s featherweight division clash: Chik Tormenta vs. Holidead for Friday, April 1 at Cesar Duran’s MLW AZTECA UNDERGROUND hosted by Gilley’s in Downtown Dallas with a special 2pm matinee, featuring an MLW Fusion TV taping and interactive experience.

The current AAA Mixed Tag Team Champion, the masked Chik Tormenta is considered the preeminent luchadora in Mexico. With a breathtaking arsenal of air attacks, including a double knee from the top rope onto her adversary’s chest but look out for her array of suplexes: all devastating.

A member of the notorious Los Nuevos Vipers in Mexico, Chik now looks to make her mark in Cesar’s cathedral of violence on April 1 at MLW AZTECA Underground. The question: is she ready for Holidead?

An unpredictable force since debuting last year, Holidead has stretchered opponents and defeated all in her path. Aligned with Arez and rumored to be a member of the Strange Sangre movement, Holidead sees this match as her proving ground to show Cesar Duran she should be in the mix for the featherweight championship.
