Major League Wrestling today announced Dragon Gate will send a representative in La Estrella as a participant in the 40-wrestler Battle Riot as MLW returns to New York City’s Melrose Ballroom on June 23, featuring an MLW Fusion TV taping. Limited tickets are available at www.MLWNYC.com and on Eventbrite.
After 2 years the gate from Japan continues to open as Dragon Gate’s La Estrella is coming to Major League Wrestling, making his American debut next Thursday in New York City at the Battle Riot.
A member of Shun Skywalker’s Masquerade stable in Dragon Gate, La Estrella is one of the promotion’s most promising stars. A cutting edge high-flyer Estrella mixes Japanese wrestling and lucha for a thrilling blend of blistering speed and innovation.
“I’ve been a huge fan of La Estrella since I first saw him two years ago,” says MLW CEO Court Bauer. “We’ve been readying for this for some time and finally that day has come with the extraordinary La Estrella kicking this off. This year’s Battle Riot will be a world’s showcase with no less than 4 organizations sending spectacular talent to compete in the Riot and it starts with La Estrella!”
In February 2020, MLW and Dragon Gate announced a strategic alliance. However, the COVID-19 pandemic complicated the ability for the two organizations to team-up. Now the wait is over.

Ho Ho Lun was the first Dragon Gate representative to journey to MLW earlier this year. Now La Estrella enters ready to impress and contend for championships.
La Estrella’s goal is simple: return to Dragon Gate with a title shot anytime anywhere. But in order to do so La Estrella must outlast and outfight 39 other participants. Will La Estrella’s star eclipse all others in the Big Apple as he conquers the Battle Riot?
