MLW Roundup: Mil Muertes title fight tonight, Lio Rush as Poseidon, more!

Let’s catch up on the latest news in MLW and preview tonight’s episode of Fusion with three title fights.

Mil Muertes is hungry for gold

Fusion is stacked with three championship contests tonight. The main event will feature Alexander Hammerstone defending the MLW National Openweight Championship against Mil Muertes. Ever since Muertes entered MLW, he has been on a path of destruction. That included beating down Hammerman and stealing the Openweight belt. Hammerstone fears no man, so he issued the challenge giving Muertes the opportunity to win the strap fair and square.

In preparation of an assumed victory by Muertes, Salina de la Renta is planning a funeral for Hammerstone. Good luck finding a casket large enough to house Muscle Mountain. The funeral is scheduled to occur next week. I anticipate Hammerstone being victorious, so this chatter might amount to nothing.

At the suggestion of Salina, LA Park & Hijo de LA Park will defend the MLW World Tag Team Championship against the Colonel Parker’s Dirty Blondes. Leo Brien and Michael Patrick will be accompanied by Aria Blake. No doubt there will be shenanigans with Salina and Aria ringside, and LA Park Jr. likely underneath the apron for a strategic switcheroo.

MLW is painting the picture that Salina fast-tracked this bout to earn more power within Azteca Underground. She has a lot on the line tonight. Failure could have dire consequences from El Jefe.

The third golden bout will see Richard Holliday defend the Caribbean Championship against Gino Medina. This beef stems from Medina not being a good fit in the Dynasty. Holliday claims he fired Medina, while Medina claims he quit. Now, they will have a chance to settle it with fisticuffs.

Also advertised is Alicia Atout interviewing TJP about his heinous attack on Bu Ku Dao, Myron Reed calling out Lio Rush for his title rematch, and the Von Erichs from Hawaii.

MLW Fusion posts on YouTube Wednesday nights at 7 pm ET, streams on Fubo Sports Network Friday nights at 7 pm ET and 10 pm ET, and airs on beIN SPORTS Saturday nights at 10 pm ET. You can also check out MLW on DAZN, Roku, and Pluto. In addition, MLW is broadcast in over 20 countries.

Quick hits

Lio Rush sat down with Alicia Atout. His new nickname is Poseidon, because he makes waves of history. Rush also spoke of the sweet sounds from his music. He earns the big bucks unlike the SoundCloud clout rapper Myron Reed. Rush plans on more defenses of the MLW World Middleweight Championship, but he declined to name contenders. Atout blew the Rush Hour tagline at the end.

Now that Reed has finished his business with Daivari of the Contra Unit, he is focused on regaining his title back from Rush. That is the money fight right now for the middleweight division.

MLW CEO Court Bauer teased signing a new TV deal, or at least that’s what I’m inferring from his emoji speak.

MLW continues with the Dario Cueto hints. Azteca Underground tweeted a photo of a very large key. All Lucha Underground fans know the relevance of that. Unfortunately, I do not possess the computer skills to decipher the words on that piece of paper below.

Josef Samael has a cool new website. It reminds me of a style similar to the Azteca Underground website. Both are worth checking out if you haven’t already done so. Samael bills himself as, “The Inventor of Sports Terrorism,” and, “The Master of the Psychic Fireball.” What more convincing do you need to take a peak.

The Dynasty has been hitting the interview circuit. Alexander Hammerstone chatted with Alicia Atout (here). He discussed choosing MLW over other promotions because they had a plan for using him, the dynastic charm of Richard Holliday, how the Dynasty allowed Hammer to explore his comedic side, and the Strokes being the best live concert he has experienced.

In an interview with Dominic DeAngelo of Wrestle Zone, Richard Holliday revealed some very undynastic traits of his former associate, Gino Medina. He criticized Medina’s allegedly fake sunglasses and poorly fitting suits. El Intocable’s wallet is untouchable when it comes to tipping.

Holliday may not admit it, but it sounds like he still cares about Medina. In an interview with Lee Walker of SportsKeeda, The Caribbean Champion understands the value of proper hydration and will hilariously assist Medina in drinking his own tears.

It will be a big night for the Dynasty, and you can support them with a new t-shirt from the MLW shop.
