Mil Muertes Debuts On MLW Fusion This Wednesday
No more teasers or hints—Mil Muertes is coming to MLW this Wednesday.
MLW has confirmed Mil Muertes will make his highly anticipated debut this Wednesday, January 13 at 7pm ET on MLW’s flagship weekly series, FUSION, available on YouTube, Fubo Sports, DAZN, and the Roku Channel.
MLW confirmed his appearance in the following announcement:
Serving as the executive producer of this coming week’s FUSION, Salina de la Renta has summoned the “Man of 1,000 Deaths” to compete in an open contract match. Who will be brave enough to square off against the luchador? Find out this Wednesday.
A destructive force, Mil Muertes unleashes the purest vengeance in the world.
In 1985, Pascal Mendoza was only 7 years old when one of the biggest earthquakes in history struck Mexico City. Tragically, he lost everything.
With death at his door, a bruja would rescue little Pascal from the underworld’s grip of death. Using his hate for the world, she would transform him into Mil Muertes. A force unlike any other seen in lucha libre was born.
Over the next several years, Mil Muertes would manifest himself in different ways in different places as the legend of the “Man of 1,000 Deaths” spread throughout the world.
In Puerto Rico, they called him Ricky Banderas, where he would claim the IWA Heavyweight Championship 5 times. In Mexico City he was known as El Mesias, capturing AAA’s Heavyweight Championship 4 times.
However, it was in the Boyle Heights neighborhood in Los Angeles where he’d claim the Lucha Underground title and capture the attention and fear of the world. Ruling on his throne as conqueror of the underground lucha fight scene, Muertes’ death grip loomed over all… until his temple fell.
In the years that followed, Muertes wandered the earth with an unquenchable desire for revenge… until he was summoned by Salina de la Renta and Promociones Dorado.
Now, the seemingly invincible Mil Muertes looks to build a shrine of death with the bodies of the men he’s conquered, and careers destroyed in Major League Wrestling.
As part of Salina de la Renta’s contract with MLW, the league granted de la Renta three episodes to executive produce.
Los Parks vs. The Von Erichs in a Tornado World Tag Team Championship match with Tom Lawlor as the special guest referee has also been signed for Wednesday’s new episode of FUSION. Alicia Atout and Injustice are also scheduled to appear on the broadcast.
MLW’s Court Bauer was also featured in WrestleZone’s 2020 edition of the “Best For The Business” series, talking about the impact COVID-19 had on the promotion, as well as how they’ve been able to rebound and move forward as a promotion.
Signing deals with DAZN and Fubo Sports, among others, MLW continues to offer fans more ways to watch their content no matter where they live. Asked if all of this work is by design and a way to “future proof” MLW’s library, Bauer says that’s not exactly an easy task but they are actively looking at trends and establishing a stronghold in entertainment’s next step forward in the streaming market.
