The Pride of Puerto Rico will return to his home away from home in New York City this Thursday night as the Caribbean legend fights the self-proclaimed future in Gino “El Intocable” Medina at the Melrose Ballroom.

MLW today announced Savio Vega vs. Gino “El Intocable” Medina for theOpera Cup at the Melrose Ballroom in New York City next Thursday December 5. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.

Tickets start at $20 at: http://www.OperaCup.com.

Unapologetically arrogant Gino Medina claims he is on a different level than anyone in the sport.  The problem is, Medina has a reputation for backing it up.

A self-proclaimed once in a generation megastar in the making, Medina plans on showing he is a franchise player when he makes his NYC debut this Thursday.

Standing in his way is the brawling Boricua Savio Vega.

Vega, who splits his time between Puerto Rico and the South Bronx, is known for his rough, physical style which will be a challenge for the finesse oriented Medina who relies on speed and a technical form of lucha.

Believing the world is his, Gino has an insatiable appetite for greatness and vows he will not be denied… or will it when he rumbles with Savio Vega?

ABOUT THE OPERA CUP
Held annually for nearly 50 years at various turn-of-the-century opera house locations from New York City to Boston, the Professional Wrestling Opera House Cup was a grueling multi-day tournament.

The best of the day competed in the tournament and would often be an entree to more success, including the World Heavyweight Championship of the day. For years the cup has sat in the attic of the Hart Mansion in Calgary until the tragic passing of the last cup recipient, Stu Hart (1948 winner).

Davey Boy Smith Jr. inherited the Opera House Trophy Cup upon the passing of his grandfather. Inspired by the legends whose names are immortalized in plaques on the sides of the cup, Smith has donated the cup to Major League Wrestling to reignite the spirit of the greats who preceded today and tomorrow’s greats.

After a 71 year hiatus, the Opera Cup returns December 5th as MLW hosts the 2019 Opera Cup tournament at Melrose Ballroom in New York City.  The event will be a FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.

The Professional Wrestling Opera Cup is dedicated to the great men who have fought valiantly before us to ensure our passion, professional wrestling be cemented and respected in the annals of time.
