CHIKARA: CMLL superstar El Valiente makes his debut at King of Trios!

The biggest pro-wrestling tournament of 2010 – King of Trios – rolls into Philadelphia on April 23rd! Wrestlers from around the globe will take part, and today, we are proud to announce a very special guest that rounds out Team Mexico! Mexican National Welterweight champion and breakout star of CMLL, El Valiente is headed to Philadelphia to make his CHIKARA debut!
This revolutionary high-flyer is known for his breathtaking Blind Reverse Springboard Moonsault, but is no slouch on the mat either – his rise to stardom and the National Welterweight title are evidence to that fact. Don’t miss your chance to catch El Valiente live, and in-person…King of Trios is just 6 weeks away! You can watch this short highlight video of Valiente in action:
