Court Bauer names Salina De La Renta as his successor, Mustafa Ali Roasts Lio Rush

MLW founder Court Bauer sees Salina de la Renta as a viable option to take on a leadership role in the event of a management change.

Salina currently holds an on-screen position as an authority figure and is also actively involved behind the scenes with the organization.

In a recent interview with “WGN Radio,” Bauer said:

When I brought her in, I said, ‘Look, we want to start with you at this level. My goal is for you to become one of the top three people behind the scenes of the company and at board level, not only creative, but also understanding how to run a business.” Thaw was when she was 21/22. “So if that’s what you want, we’ll help you get to that point. That’s where I see your future. If you want it, it’s up to you. I will say this: If something were to happen to me and I just wasn’t in MLW, and I drop dead, she’s one of the candidates to take over MLW. She has it,” he continued. “A lot of people don’t think about succession plans, especially promoters, because we’re in the moment, but she gets it. She knows how to work with talent. She knows how to run a business. Besides wrestling, she works a lot in TV and film companies. So she gets it and so I say I would be very comfortable with someone like Salina de la Renta running MLW one day. I think if that happened, mission accomplished. I have done my job in giving her the skills, the experience and the understanding of how to do a very complicated job, a very high pressure job, and I don’t think she would have a problem with it.

In a tweet, Mustafa Ali spoke about his upcoming charity match with Lio Rush at NJPW Resurgence this weekend, which is scheduled to take place in Ontario.

Ali said: Hello, I’m Mustafa Ali. Today I want to talk to you about the power of giving back. You see, our great industry is built on the idea of ​​reaching those at the very bottom of the map and giving them a helping hand. It’s about being a humanitarian and saving someone’s career. Charity work is not just about giving money. It’s about giving less talented individuals opportunities and exposure that they would never get on their own. That’s why I’m proud to announce that the Mustafa Ali Campaign will be donating an exhibition match this Saturday in Ontario, California, for New Japan Pro-Wrestling. My opponent for this charity campaign match will be Lio Rush. Is Mr. Rush qualified or does he deserve to be in the ring with me? Of course not. But Mr. Rush is a gifted child, and I believe it is the responsibility of a leader like me to invest in the children of today because they will be the leaders of tomorrow. Therefore, I urge you, my fellow citizens, to join me in my noble cause of charity. Let’s stand together. Let’s give generously, and let’s make our industry great again. Thank you, good night, and remember: we trust Ali.
