The impressive lineup for this year’s WrestleCon 2022 continues to grow, as former WWE and WCW star Ultimo Dragon will be appearing live. The event will take place Thursday, March 31 – Saturday, April 2 during WrestleMania weekend in Dallas.
“It’s 2022!! Officially the year of WrestleCon Dallas!! Let’s start the year off right!! Give a big welcome to Ultimo Dragon!!” the WrestleCon Twitter page writes.
The seasoned performer, 55, first started training in 1987 in the New Japan Dojo and then moved to Mexico where he established his signature luchador style. He made his American debut in WCW in 1996, going on to become a 2-time Cruiserweight and Television Champion, respectively.
