Rush was planned to compete in the main event for Major League Wrestling on April 4, but he’s been removed from the match due to signing an exclusive deal with Ring of Honor.  “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 of the removal. Replacing him is Pentagon, who will now take on LA Park in a rematch of one of 2018’s best matches.

The event, which now has the official title MLW: Rise of the Renegades, is set to take place WrestleMania week. It’s one of two shows that the promotion will be putting on.

Here’s how MLW describes the new main event:

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.
