Welcome to the Wrestling Inc recap of Major League Wrestling's weekly episodic Fusion. Tonight's show takes place from the Waukesha County Expo Center in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
Recap of last weekend's Fury Road event when Alexander Hammerstone defeated Brian Pillman Jr to become the first ever MLW National Openweight champion. The main event saw Teddy Hart defend the Middleweight championship against Jimmy Havoc, but Dynasty would interfere. The Hart Foundation would run out to even the odds, leading to a six-man brawl to end the show.
An interview with Hammerstone from earlier in the day is played. Hammerstone says that nobody is giving him respect, and instead fans cheer Brian Pillman Jr, even though Hammerstone destroyed him. He then talks about his relationship with Dynasty, claiming that without hi, the faction wouldn't have gold. He challenges Bocchini, who is interviewing, to lift a free-weight. Bocchini can't, so Hammerstone picks Boccini up on his shoulders and presses him up. Segment ends.
