This week, Major League Wrestling (MLW) officials announced the debut of former Impact Wrestling and WWE Superstar Austin Aries.

Featured below is the official press release that MLW issued this week, as well as comments from Aries on his MLW debut.

ORLANDO – Austin Aries will make his Major League Wrestling debut next Thursday in Orlando when he competes against another newcomer ACH at MLW: Road to the World Championship at Gilt Nightclub on February 8th.

One of the top free agents in the sport, Austin Aries has been making an instant impact wherever he has turned up since becoming a free agent late last fall. A belt hunter, recently winning championships all over the world, Aries looks to continue the trend in MLW. But first, he must get past the Austin, TX standout ACH.

“Styles makes fights and these two share a lot of similar qualities but also some unique advantages over the other. This is a match that will shake-up the MLW top 10 rankings,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer.

Ticket prices range from $15-$45 with a limited number of “Golden Ticket” VIP Packages also available.
