The Golden Promotion

Promociones Dorado is a stable of professional wrestlers in Major League Wrestling (MLW). The stable was created in 2018 and its leader/founder is Salina De La Renta. In its early tenure for the promotion, she had managed the Lucha Brothers (Pentagón Jr. & Rey Fenix) who were the MLW tag team champions for a time. As the months went on, more members were added to their ranks such as Ricky Martinez, Sammy Guevara, El Hijo De LA Park, and most notably, LA Park (yes the original La Parka from the WCW days) and Low Ki (well-known fighter who has wrestled for major promotions in the past). The stable had members throughout its existence such as Los Parks, Salina De La Renta (former leader), Garza Jr., Ricky Martinez, Bestia 666 (and by extension, his father Damian 666), Jimmy Havoc, as an "advisor", according to Salina, and Cristobal Culebra (the bodyguard for Salina De La Renta). It was disbanded in 2021 when it was purchased and absorbed into Azteca Underground by its proprietor Cesar Duran (the former Dario Cueto of Lucha Underground fame). Then in 2023, with Salina's return to MLW did she also bring back the stable with new wrestlers like Rocky Romero, Jesus Rodriguez and Janai Kai debuting for the stable at that year's Slaughterhouse, with other members like Bad Dude Tito and Star Jr. joining in later.

Dorado Tropes:

  • Arch-Enemy: Konnan, Mance Warner, Low Ki. Previously Sami Callihan, but Salina used Mance Warner to send him packing. "Filthy" Tom Lawlor was, but that was by extension via Low Ki being the MLW Champion. Shane Strickland as well, until Low Ki took the world championship from him and also beat him in the rematch. As of 2021, Savio Vega due to his refusal to sell his IWA promotion to Azteca Underground as well as Alexander Hammerstone since Muertes stole his belt and started to parade around with it to please El Jefe. For the 2023 return, Ichiban and Cesar Duran.
  • Big Bad: For a time in MLW before they were usurped by Contra Unit in early 2019. As of 2021, now both factions are.
  • Canon Welding: Since the arrival of Mil Muertes and "El Jefe" Dario Cueto, essentially it retroactively places the Lucha Underground universe into the MLW realm.
  • The Dragon: Mil Muertes, Ricky Martinez and Low Ki.
  • The Ghost: For months, there's been several references to the owner of the Azteca Underground brand often known as 'El Jefe'. Eventually subverted as of the season finale of MLW Fusion to which El Jefe is Dario Cueto himself.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Happened when Salina turned on Low Ki and left him to get mauled by Contra. This was a stupid move because it put a target on both Promociones Dorado AND Contra's backs.
  • Intercontinuity Crossover: The arrival of Mil Muertes and the acquisition of Promociones Dorado by Azteca Underground is (possibly) one between MLW and the defunct Lucha Underground given the numerous references of the latter in recent months. Even the owner of Lucha Underground Dario Cueto also counts as well.
  • Masked Luchador: Hijo De La Park, LA Park, LA Park Jr. and Mil Muertes.
    • Unmasked Luchador: Bestia 666, who like his father Damian 666 wears facepaint.
  • Spicy Latina: Salina may be the spiciest in all of American wrestling right now.
  • Wham Shot: The episode of a recent produced episode of MLW Fusion mentioned that it's now owned by Azteca Underground. Sounds familiar? Dario Cueto himself made his physical MLW debut for the first time since awakening from his casket in the last season of Lucha Underground.
  • You Have Failed Me: Salina De La Renta punished Sami Callihan for his failure to take out Tom Lawlor (see Batman Gambit above) by forcing him into a Falls Count Anywhere match against LA Park, which Park won after spearing Callihan through several chairs. Speaking of which, this trope was also the reason that Salina had fired Sammy Guevara for losing his match when he was in her Promociones Dorado faction. Ironically, Salina herself failed El Jefe numerous times during which El Hijo de LA Park lost his match against Bu Ku Dao in a recent Fusion episode and that instance is the straw that break the camels back to which she later got abducted by a large masked man outside the arena.
