DBS Jr. vs. Low Ki to main event Wednesday’s MLW FUSION
Rematch from classic 2019 Opera Cup clash

Fighting for his family’s legacy and the coveted Opera Cup trophy, Smith promises to match Low Ki hold for hold, move for move and strike for strike as the two strong style combatants collide this Wednesday.
A rematch from last year’s classic Opera Cup opening round where Low Ki nearly finished Smith with a choke before Smith improvised a pinning combo essentially bridging Ki’s choke into an irreversible pin, both men have a lot on the line.
The 2019 Opera Cup winner, Davey Boy Smith Jr. is defending his family’s cherished heirloom, the Opera Cup. Prior to DBS’ tournament win, Stu Hart, Davey’s grandfather, was the last to win the tournament back in 1948 before MLW revived the tournament last year.
Held annually for nearly 50 years at various turn-of-the-century opera house locations from New York City to Boston, the Professional Wrestling Opera House Cup was a grueling multi-day tournament. In 2019 it was revived with MLW now the home and host for future Opera Cup tournaments.
Featuring 4 opening round bouts, the league has teamed up with international organizations to bring the best wrestlers from around the world to compete in the 2020 Opera Cup.
The winner of this bout will advance to the semi-finals where he will fight Richard Holliday, who defeated TJP to move on in the tournament (watch match for FREE).
