OKADA ANSWERS SLEX’S OPEN CHALLENGE
These two world class athletes will step into the ring at MCW November Rain which takes place on 11 November 2017 at the MCW Arena (Ukrainian Hall, 3-11 Russell Street, Essendon).
Slex is no stranger to Melbourne City Wrestling audiences. A member of TMDK, he is a former tag-team champion and a former MCW Heavyweight Champion. Slex’s open challenge came as a surprise when he appeared at MCW SEVEN night one on Friday, 13 October. Speculation was rampant about who would respond, the audience stunned when Kazuchika Okada appeared on screen to accept the challenge this evening.
Kazuchika Okada is the current and longest reigning IWGP Heavyweight champion. He was most recently named number one in Pro Wrestling Illustrated‘s prestigious list of the top 500 wrestlers in the world, making him the first Japanese wrestler to do so. He will be appearing exclusively for Melbourne City Wrestling in Australia. Can the ‘Rainmaker’ upset Slex’s big return?
Tickets for the event will be on sale via the Melbourne City Wrestling website. The event will also be available on demand via MCW Encore. Stay tuned to the Melbourne City Wrestling Facebook page for all information.
