A high-stakes championship showdown is for the hallowed grounds of Cicero Stadium in Chicago in a first-time ever encounter.


Salina de la Renta, the mastermind behind this title bout, has once again showcased her prowess in securing high-profile matches, orchestrating a showdown that has fans on the edge of their seats. Bad Dude Tito Escondido is on the hunt for gold. Having made the move from the illegal underground fighting circuit in California to New Japan Pro Wrestling and now MLW, Escondido now sets his sights on claiming his first title in MLW, and his path to glory runs directly through Rickey Shane Page.


Page, the second-longest reigning MLW National Openweight Champion in history, has proven himself as a formidable force. Having captured the championship from Jacob Fatu last September, Page now faces his first title defense since the dissolution of The Calling. With Sami Callihan and RSP going their own ways, Page finds himself standing alone, ready to defend his title against the relentless onslaught of Bad Dude Tito.


This title match-up holds significance beyond the championship gold, as it serves as a litmus test for Rickey Shane Page's ability to thrive in the absence of his Carcosa brotherhood. At a crossroads, Page's resilience and adaptability will be put to the ultimate test against the relentless assault of grappler Bad Dude Tito Escondido.


Notably, this match will not be part of the ongoing wager between Salina de la Renta and Cesar Duran, as it does not feature an Azteca Lucha luchador facing off against a representative from Salina's Promociones Dorado. Nevertheless, the stakes of this encounter remain unparalleled as the MLW National Openweight Championship hangs in the balance with a ferocious challenger facing a wicked and dangerous champion.


Get your tickets now at http://www.luchatickets.com and see it go down Saturday, May 11 in Chicago.


As a thank you to Chicago fans, this event will be a special fan appreciation event with tickets starting at $10.
