Rich Bocchini and Jim Cornette welcome us to another edition of MLW Fusion. They hype tonight’s main event: a tornado tag team grudge match featuring MLW heavyweight champion Tom Lawlor teaming with Ross and Marshall Von Erich to face the Contra Unit. (Jacob Fatu, Josef Samael, Simon Gotch). Low Ki will also be in action tonight following his knockout victory over Ricky Martinez.
Dynasty’s music hits. MJF makes his way out with Aria Blake to join the commentary table. MJF grabs a headset and does his signature introduction. He says that his friend Richard Holliday is going to beat Teddy Hart senseless.
Teddy Hart makes his way out. Hart poses in front of MJF with the tag title, and hands Bocchini his necklace. Hart throws his jacket into MJF’s face and looks as if he’s going to attack him. Cornette fleas. Richard Holliday comes out of nowhere and batters Hart from behind. He and MJF lay into Hart with clubbing blows. MJF hits Hart in the ribs with a chair, then smash his face with the MLW tag title. Holliday and MJF steal the belt and escape as the rest of the Hart Foundation run them off to end the segment.
Commentary tells us that the scheduled match between Hart and Holliday has been scrapped because of Dynasties attack. Flashback to last week’s main event between Mance Warner and Sami Callihan in a Loser Leaves Town match. Warner would emerge victorious after a brutal battle. Cut to an interview from earlier in the day with Warner. He’s drinking a beer and tells Salina that he’s pissed off. She made him run off Callihan, and because of that, he’s going headhunting on Promociones Dorado. He threatens each member, specifically Jimmy Havoc, and promises to knock him right back where he came from. “One by one…Ole Mancer taking you out.”
