A trios match is the latest addition to the lineup for this month's MLW television tapings.
MLW has announced that Arez, Gino Medina & Mini Abismo Negro will face Puma King, Octagon Jr., and a mystery partner at SuperFight on Saturday, February 26. The tapings are being held at the Grady Cole Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
MLW wrote about the matchup, hyping that it will be Octagon Jr.'s American debut:
Octagon Jr., Puma King and a mystery partner will face Strange Sangre’s Arez, Gino Medina and Mini Abismo Negro in what promises to be an exhilarating nonstop clash of six top luchadores.
Featuring the American debut of Octagon Jr., Cesar [Duran[ promises a spectacular bout unlike anything else on the SuperFight card.
A former AAA World Trios Champion an, member of Los Jinetes del Aire (“The Air Raiders”), Octagon Jr. donned the Octagon mask in 2019 and represents the next generation of one of AAA’s most iconic luchadores.
Pouncing into action alongside Octagon Jr., is the coolest cat around, Puma King. No stranger to MLW, Puma King looks to return to the league with a purrrfect outing at SuperFight.
But who is the mystery third man on this team?
Calling themselves Strange Sangre, Gino Medina, Arez and Mini Abismo Negro laugh at the idea of a mystery man. Claiming Octagon Jr. & Puma King need all of the tricks they can use to have a shot at defeating them, this trio enters Charlotte full of confidence and skepticism about the mystery third person.
