MLW to offer unique experience with Azteca Underground during WrestleMania week

During WrestleMania week, it has become custom for smaller promotions to visit the host city and put on shows for the hoards of wrestling fans descending upon the scene. MLW is joining in on the fun to offer a unique experience with Azteca Underground.

Azteca Underground is the offshoot fight club of Cesar Duran. Fans of Lucha Underground will recognize Duran as Dario Cueto.

MLW leans into that world by pointing out the Cueto name as an alias used by Duran. Ever since Duran arrived on the scene, MLW has dropped numerous cool references to characters from Lucha Underground’s past blending into MLW’s current roster.

MLW recently concluded a five-episode Azteca Underground mini-series, which is currently available for viewing on MLW’s YouTube channel. MLW is riding Duran and Azteca Underground for a second round. Azteca Underground tapings will hit Gilley’s in Dallas on Friday, April 1 during WrestleMania week.

MLW is offering a unique experience beyond just a wrestling show.

Cesar Duran presents MLW AZTECA UNDERGROUND at Gilley’s in Downtown Dallas on Friday, April 1 with a special matinee wrestling event and interactive experience.

Tickets go on sale at 10am (central) on Thursday, February 10 at and Eventbrite.

The event will be a Major League Wrestling television taping featuring a loaded line-up of matches.
