Major League Wrestling today announced Lince Dorado vs. DragonGate’s La Estrella at MLW Blood & Thunder on Saturday, January 7 at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia.

🎟 Tickets start at $15 at and the 2300 Arena box office. 

The card is a FUSION TV taping, airing on beIN SPORTS nationwide on cable and dish, streaming on Pro Wrestling TV, and in over 60 countries around the world.

An inter-promotional middleweight bout promises to steal the show as Lince Dorado squares off against DragonGate’s La Estrella 1-on-1 for the first-time ever.

In a battle that spotlights the high-octane, high-flying aerial thrills of lucha libre and the smash-mouth strong style blend of Japanese wrestling and lucha libre, known as lucharesu, this fight vows to be unlike anything else on the January 7 card.

“I wish to thank Mr. Kido and the DragonGate organization for generously providing MLW and its fans the opportunity to see some of their roster’s most exciting competitors,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “Philly fans better buckle up. If you like speedsters in the squared circle, this match is for you.”

La Estrella, who made his MLW debut in June, has spent the year journeying all over the world, from Germany to Mexico, La Estrella has trained with masters of the mat. Now, he looks to take the knowledge he’s accumulated and make a statement with a high-profile victory over Dorado.

Dorado, fresh off a tour for Mexico’s oldest and most respected organization, CMLL, has become a cornerstone of the league’s middleweight division. Now, he must face the lightning speed and hunger of a new era of DragonGate competition.
