Welcome to Wrestling INC's recap of Major League Wrestling's weekly episodic Fusion. Tonight's show takes place from the Auditorio Fausto Gutierrez Moreno from Tijuana, Mexico. Feel free sound off thoughts in the comments. Enjoy the show!
Show opens with a promo from Contra Unit. Josef Samael calls out Promociones Dorado, saying that last week they beat the living hell out of El Hijo de LA Park, and that the champion Jacob Fatu will be watching their six-man tag later this evening. Fatu then calls out his Saturday Night SuperFight opponent LA Park. "It's not going to be a SuperFight," growls Fatu. "It's going to be a f**king massacre. HAIL CONTRA."

Advertisement for MLW's first pay per view, Saturday Night SuperFight, including a recently announced pre-show. Commentary team runs down the card which includes Alexander Hammerstone defending the National Openweight championship against Davey Boy Smith Jr, Dynasty versus the Von Erichs for the tag team titles, Teddy Hart defending the Middleweight championship against Austin Aries, and Jacob Fatu going to war with LA Park for the world title in a NO DQ bout.
Cut to Salina de la Renta. She says Contra "aint sh*t." She says she's more powerful than the cartel, because in MLW Salina is the law. "You say that Contra is at war with Promociones Dorado? LA Park is going to take Fatu's Samoan ass, and hang it from the telephone wires outside of Cicero Stadium." Segment ends with Salina taking a deep drag of her cigar.
Elsewhere, LA Park cuts a promo. He says Contra Unit will pay for attacking his son last week, promising to break each man's face in tonight's main event tag affair.
Dynasty is seen at a bar grabbing drinks. MJF asks if Hammerstone snuck any of the drugs he got in Mexico across the border. Hammerstone doesn't deny it. MJF and Hammerstone ask Holliday why he's not wearing his air-pods. Holliday says that he needed to clean his ears first, then reveals that his air-pods are Louis Vuitton. They all cheers.
The Von Erichs promise to give Dynasty a SuperFight hangover when they beat them for the world tag team titles on Saturday.
The feed is interrupted by the H2 network. Brian Pillman Jr. and Davey Boy Smith Jr. are signing autographs to all their fans. Smith says that they are happy to see so much support in Mexico, but they do wish that Teddy Hart could have been there, remaining suspicious about his absence.

Proximo and Terror Azteca are out for our next matchup. They'll be facing Toto and Torito.
Proximo/Terror Azteca versus Toto/Torito
A fun fast paced contest that really highlights the best of Crash Lucha Libre. Most of the time commentary was putting over the pay per view this coming Saturday, which made it hard to focus on the match. Azteca would pick up the victory for himself and Proximo after a twisting headscissor driver while Proximo and Torito were battling on the outside.
