News trickled in this past weekend about certain moments from the MLW Blood & Thunder event in Dallas, Texas from this past Friday. This included news of Bandido’s MLW debut, Buddy Mathews’ MLW debut, and the MLW Middleweight Championship changing hands from Tajiri to Myron Reed.
Notes from PWInsider indicate that the finish to Buddy Matthews’ debut match was a shock to everyone backstage because it was booked for him to go over TJP. However, there was some sort of miscommunication that led to the original finish changing and having TJP win.
It was also noted that Dave Marquez was responsible for directing the show, and plans are set to bring in some NWA Mid-Atlantic legends for the 2/26 in Charlotte, NC.
A part of the show included what was said to be an “obvious” tease about Killer Kross arriving in the promotion. The former WWE RAW Superstar is scheduled to return to in-ring action at WrestlePro’s Killer Instinct event on Saturday, February 5 in Rahway, NJ.
