Austin Aries wants MLW gold; battles Ace Austin in NYC middleweight showdown July 25

Austin Aries looks to conquer the middleweight division and win the belt. In order to do so, he will have to take on some of the best in the league including his next challenge on July 25 in Ace Austin.

MLW today announced Austin Aries vs. Ace Austin for MLW: Never Say Never '19 at the Melrose Ballroom in New York City on July 25. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.

Tickets start at $20 at

Austin Aries is blunt about his business in the ring: he wants the World Middleweight title. In order to do so he will have to topple a stacked division which includes one of the most talented athletes of the next generation in Ace Austin.

Austin Aries returned to competition earlier earlier this summer with an extraordinary encounter against Australia's top ranked wrestler Adam Brooks. Victorious, Aries wasted no time in defining his goals in Major League Wrestling: challenging for the World Middleweight Championship.

Boasting he would clear out the division and challenge for the bet in 2019, Aries continues his campaign in New York City as he faces the young and ferocious talents of Atlantic City's Ace Austin.

“The Ace of Spades” is an avid skateboarder. Training in Parkour, this young athlete creates a unique dynamic to his matches relying on improvising with movement and the obstacles and environment he finds himself in.

Spending his early days in the sport with the Anoa’i family’s WXW promotion, the 22-year old cutting edge grappler is an emerging middleweight.

Now Aries and Austin jockey for position in the middleweight rankings.
