Dr Wagner Jr & Son To Compete At MLW Chicago Event
MLW has announced legendary luchador Dr. Wagner Jr. will make his company debut on July 6 at MLW: Kings of Colosseum in Chicago. The event is a TV taping for beIN SPORTS, and it will see Wagner Jr. team up with his son, El Hijo de Dr. Wagner Jr., in tag team competition. MLW credited Promociones Dorado’s Salina de la Renta as brokering the deal to bring the duo in.
Collectively known as La Dinastia Wagner, the Wagner family have competed in the sport for almost 50 years. With three generations fighting for the family’s honor, belts and the fans, the Wagner family is lucha royalty in Mexico and around the world.
With the late Dr. Wagner infighting fear into the hearts of opponents and fans as an evil doctor (aka medical assassino), the white Wagner mask represents the white mask and scrubs of a doctor.
An international wrestler of excellence, Dr. Wagner Jr. has competed around the world including extensively touring for New Japan Pro Wrestling, winning championships on several continents and being the face of the video game, AAA: Héroes del Ring.
A decorated legend known for his iconic mask, Dr. Wagner Jr. has both competed as a tecnico and rudo with legendary rivalries with: LA Park, Canek and Atlantis. Losing his mask in 2017, Dr. Wagner Jr.’s legend only grew with the luchador being referred to at times as “King Wagner” (Rey Wagner in Spanish).
The following talent is also being advertised for the event; tickets are available now:
World Heavyweight Champion “Filthy” Tom Lawlor, Low Ki, Salina de la Renta, World Tag Team Champions The Hart Foundation, National Openweight Champion Alex Hammerstone, MJF, Richard Holliday, Rey Horus, Mance Warner, Gringo Loco, CONTRA Unit, Myron Reed, Ace Austin, Ariel Dominguez
