On Saturday, Major League Wrestling (MLW) announced the impending arrival of a new wrestling star to the company, in the form of “The Untouchable” Gino Medina. While his name may not be a huge name to many people, he’s a second generation luchador who has spent the past few years training in Texas under WWE Hall of Famer Booker T.

Starting his wrestling career in 2015, Gino Medina is the son of 80s and 90s lucha star El Sanguinario, a star with the Monterrey, Mexico-based promotion Federación Internacional de Lucha Libre (FILL), who also appeared for AAA and CMLL on occasion. He also wrestled as Máscara Sagrada and Máscara Maligna on occasion. Sadly, he passed away in 2002 from a heart attack. He was a former FILL World Light Heavyweight Champion.
Gino Media began training with Booker T and has worked for Booker T’s Reality of Wrestling (ROW) out of Houston, Texas, where he’s a former 3x ROW Heavyweight Champion. He also competes in Virginia’s Vanguard Championship Wrestling (VCW), where he held the VCW Commonwealth Heritage Championship a whopping 483-days, and is the current VCW Heavyweight Champion. He’s also worked other Texas indies like Inspire Pro, and this past July, he defeated Eddie Edwards at the IMPACT Wrestling-ROW co-event, Deep Impact. Last fall, he had a tryout with WWE.
