Low Ki’s MLW NYC Opponent Set

MLW has issued the following:


NEW YORK – Salina de la Renta has had her hands full with Konnan and a very public split with the World Tag Team Champions.  Now, Konnan has turned his attention towards the World Heavyweight Championship, which has triggered a title match for next Thursday.  World Heavyweight Champion (presented by Salina de la Renta) vs. Daga (cornered by Konnan) has been signed for MLW FURY ROAD: an MLW Fusion TV taping. Tickets start at just $20 at

At a private MLW beIN SPORTS corporate event yesterday, Konnan, Low Ki and Salina de la Renta exchanged words.  Reportedly, Konnan called out Low Ki’s strong style game, which the reigning World Champion to exception to.

Things quickly escalated with Low Ki offering Konnan an open contract for a title match if Konnan could “produce a luchador with any strong style game.”  Konnan, never one for a loss for words or strategy, took them up on their challenge.  One call later former AAA World Cruiserweight Champion Daga was in and making plans to train for the big fight.  By 10:40 p.m. EST league officials had a title bout signed for next Thursday in New York City.

Daga, known for his technical prowess, uses what he refers to as “Mexican Strong Style”.  Daga has explained this version as blending strong style with a Mexican twist.  Often finishing opponents with the rear naked choke, Daga is a new era hybrid wrestler.

Daga has been generating a lot of buzz in 2018.  Now he finds himself in a bid for the world championship on just nine days notice.  Can Daga finish off a big year with a big title win on the national spotlight?

One thing is for sure: Daga promises to show what Mexican fighting spirit is as he debuts in grand fashion in the Big Apple next Thursday at the Melrose Ballroom.

See Daga make his MLW debut LIVE October 4th in New York City!

Tickets start at $20 for this MLW FUSION taping.
