Ultimo Dragon to appear at Anime Expo 2013
Wrestling fans, prepare to mark out! International legendary wrestler and Lucha Libre icon, Ultimo Dragon, will finally make his return to America after eight long years as a guest at Anime Expo. He will appear as a judge for LA Fight, the Japan Film Society’s anime short film contest. For the most part this sounds like it doesn’t really matter to wrestling fans unless they entered the LA Fight contest, but fret not as Ultimo Dragon will also be hosting a panel. The panel will be for his Ultimo Dragon Kickstarter graphic novel, and he will also do autographs for this.
In some trivia for those who don’t know Ultimo Dragon, he has worked in almost every major wrestling promotion in the world, especially in AAA, CMLL, WAR, IGF, WCW, and WWE. This Lucha Libre icon has had successful runs with most promotions and held championships in most of them. Makes me wish WWE gave him a better run and a Cruiserweight Championship reign along with it.
If you’re attending AX 2013, take some time out of your day if you’re a fan and show up at his panel and show the legend some love and support!
