Mascara Dorada is set for NJPW Strong Style Evolved in the Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida area on March 20.
The former Gran Metalik was officially announced on the NJPW of America Twitter page today.
While working with CMLL, Dorada frequently participated in NJPW tours in the 2010s due to the partnership between the two companies, including participating in multiple Best of the Super Juniors and Super Junior Tag League tournaments, as well as the annual CMLL Fantastica Mania tour of Japan.
Dorada challenged then-IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega for the title at NJPW Invasion Attack in April 2015 in a losing effort.
Mascara Dorada joins Tom Lawlor, Jay White, Juice Robinson, Fred Rosser, JONAH, Karl Fredericks, Clark Connors, Hikuleo, Rocky Romero, and Josh Alexander as talent announced for the show.
Tickets for Strong Style Evolved are on sale now. There is no mask or COVID-19 testing mandate for the show, but wearing a mask is encouraged on the event's website.
