MLW Roundup: MJF vs Mance Warner loser leaves town, more!

New, 1 comment

Let’s catch up on this week’s news in MLW and preview Saturday night’s episode of Fusion.

Loser leaves MLW

The feud between MJF and Mance Warner has been simmering for months. Tonight is the night that it explodes. MJF will fight Ole Mancer in a Loser Leaves MLW match inside an empty arena. As a way to prevent Dynasty interference, both wrestlers will be taken to the mysterious location 60 minutes before the bout.

Warner has been training at Uncle Moonman’s Bucksnort Farm. Warner returned to old school conditioning by moving tractor tires and farm equipment. I hope we get a musical montage of that workout.

Ole Mancer broke out the whiteboard to go over his game plan of whooping MJF’s ass.

Warner is not stranger to these high-stakes fights. In episode 62 of Fusion, Warner competed against Sami Callihan in a Loser Leaves Town match. Go rewatch that dandy of a fight to get in the mood.

Meanwhile, MJF is not taking this bout lightly. Sources claim the Dynasty is, “throwing money and muscle around,” to make sure MJF has the upper hand. Whatever plan the Dynasty has up their sleeves, they seem pretty confident in victory for MJF. They have already booked a celebration party full of girls and champagne.

In other action, Septimo Dragon will wrestler Douglas James. That should be a fast-paced affair. Both wrestler are firecrackers in the ring. The preview also teases updates on Brian Pillman Jr. and Killer Kross.

MLW Fusion airs on beIN SPORTS and PlayStation Vue Saturday nights at 9 pm ET / 6 pm PT. New episodes are posted on YouTube Saturdays at 6:05 pm ET. Fusion is also broadcast in the UK, Ireland, Israel, Africa, and France.

Quick hits

The Von Erichs provided a reaction, from their Hawaii farm, to Team Filthy’s dirty actions last week. They will overcome the numbers game with their heart and tenacity.

Injustice has been suspended and fined $10,000 each by MLW after their curb stomp attack to Brian Pillman Jr. The length of punishment was not specified. If you are a fan of Injustice’s actions, then you can support them with a new Jordan Oliver shirt.

More episodes are on the way for LA Park’s cooking show, “LA Park en la cocina, pendejos!”

MLW has moved the upcoming May 2 TV taping in Dallas back to October 3 due to coronavirus concerns. By my calculations, May 2 is probably when MLW runs out of footage for new Fusion episodes. Being forced to change that Dallas date means MLW will have to figure out creative programming if they wish to keep Fusion rolling until the June 12 event in Chicago.

If Fusion runs out of material, Alexander Hammerstone has issued a one-hour Iron Man challenge to fill the void. MLW may actually consider that idea. “MLW CEO Court Bauer has reportedly been impressed by Hammerstone’s tenacity and appetite for competition and promises to revisit the concept once Dr. Sweglar gives the green light for competition to recommence.”

Hammer also has a new shirt on Pro Wrestling Tees.

MLW closed another TV deal. Last week was Poland. This week is the Middle East and North Africa. Fusion will begin airing on the Wataaa Fight Channel in Spring.

We’ll close with a little lost in translation silliness. Every once in awhile Court Bauer will tweet out match reviews written in Japanese.

I can’t read Japanese, so a visit to the trusty (or untrusty) Google translator provided comedic gold.

T-Hawk tries to bounce off the physique with a solid chop, but there are also parts that are too dependable and unnatural scenes. Hummerstone shines instantaneous dynamism. There are more packed parts such as Hawk’s energy production.

Hammerman shining instantaneous dynamism sounds correct. Perhaps Richard Holliday can market that for the Dynasty.

Who would you like to see Hammerstone shine instantaneous dynamism on in his Iron Man challenge?
