Major League Wrestling issued the following:

 
 
Lucha Bros vs. Team AAA signed for MLW's March 2nd return to Chicago

CHICAGO –  On this weekend's episode of MLW FUSION, the Lucha Bros (Pentagón Jr. & Rey Feníx) revealed their decision live from Las Vegas: would they stay or would they go? Surprising the world by declaring MLW is their house (WATCH), the Lucha Bros confirmed they would remain in Major League Wrestling for the foreseeable future... and called out tag teams from around the world to enter their house and challenge them in a world showcase challenge.

Mexico's Lucha Libre AAA moved quickly to answer the call.

MLW today announced the Lucha Bros. (Pentagón Jr. & Rey Feníx) vs. Team AAA (Taurus & Laredo Kid) at MLW: Intimidation Games presented by GoDaddy at Cicero Stadium. The event will air live on beIN SPORTS on Saturday night March 2nd.

Fans can buy tickets starting at $10 at http://www.MLWTickets.com

AAA will be sending a diverse duo to Chicago on March 2nd to challenge the Lucha Bros. in Laredo Kid and Taurus.

The powerhouse brute known as Taurus is one of Mexico's true monsters.  A diabolical rudo, this beast of a luchador wears the mask of a bull; similar to a minotaur.  Known for his awesome strength and imposing his power and size in matches, Taurus is a dangerous challenge for the Lucha Bros.

Complimenting the blunt destruction of Taurus is the high-flying Laredo Kid.  One-third of the current AAA World Trios Champions, Laredo Kid has quickly become one of AAA's most formidable luchadores including winning the 2018 AAA Lucha Capital Tournament. Unleashing the 450º Splash, Springboard Double Corkscrew Plancha and an innovative 630º Splash, Laredo can fight the Lucha Bros in the air while Taurus punishes them with power moves.

This bout will also mark the return of Konnan in the corner of the Lucha Bros. following the infamous Low Ki World Title bout in Miami that resulted in Konnan being attacked with a foreign object. 

Team AAA must be ready for arguably the best tag team in the sport in the ex-MLW World Tag Team Champions the Lucha Bros.  As the Lucha Bros. embark on their world showcase challenge, will Pentagón Jr. & Rey Feníx overcome their loss to Canada's Hart Foundation or will Team AAA prove to be too much?
