NEW YORK, April 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the Supreme Court begins hearing arguments over Arizona's controversial immigration law, SB 1070.
On Sunday, the notorious 225-pound pro-SB 1070 wrestler RJ Brewer confronts his nemesis, legendary Mexican Luchador Blue Demon, Jr. in an Epic Battle at Phoenix's Celebrity Theatre on April 29, San Antonio's Alomodome May 11, and Austin's Dell Diamond May 12. These live events are part of the "Masked Warriors Live" tour visiting major arenas in the nation's top Hispanic markets, the largest Lucha Libre tour ever mounted in the U.S.
RJ Brewer, the in-your-face American crusader against illegal immigration is el mero malo, the chief bad guy. Brewer is wrestling his way across the country on the national Lucha Libre USA "Masked Warriors Live" tour to hostile crowds. The fans boo and heckle him nonstop. For his part, Brewer is defiant, questioning the legal status of his opponents, bragging about his powerful "mother" and generally trashing his opponents. In the three upcoming cities where so many support SB 1070, there will be as many cheers for RJ Brewer as boos.
Brewer often wears red tights with "SB 1070" stenciled on the back. That's the name of the anti-illegal immigration law he supports that was passed in Arizona. He stands ready to defend the Arizona bill and his stance on immigration in the U.S.
We have photos and explosive footage of RJ Brewer walking alongside the border fence between the U.S. and Mexico, and can arrange interviews with RJ Brewer, Blue Demon Jr. and Lucha Libre USA's CEO Steven Ship for a great, topical story!
