MLW’s COO MSL recently spoke with The Wrestling Inc. Daily where he teased a major undiscovered signing that is coming to the promotion. The mystery man will be getting unveiled tomorrow night.

“January 21st in Dallas, I am going to unveil my newest signing, right? I scoured the world, I wanted to find the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world,” MSL claimed. “I had thousands of video submissions from independent wrestlers, I went everywhere.

“I went to the everglades and scouted alligator wrestlers. I went to the Middle East and scouted snake charmers, I went over to Asia, sumo wrestlers, I was willing to consider anyone. Nothing was off-limits and I did find, thankfully, and I can’t wait to unveil him on January 21st, the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. This guy is going to blow your mind.”
