MLW has a big title fight set for this Thursday's episode of "MLW Fusion," as a rivalry comes to a head when Richard Holliday faces MLW World Champion Hammerstone in a much-hyped title fight. The promotion also has several stars set to compete on the card for Ric Flair's Last Match, including Killer Kross and the Von Erichs.
