Following CONTRA’s Josef Samael vowing CONTRA would dethrone all of MLW’s champions on FUSION (watch for FREE), the reigning World Tag Team Champions Ross and Marshall Von Erich accepted the challenge.
Soon thereafter, CONTRA released a propaganda video revealing that it would be the World Heavyweight Champion Jacob Fatu along with tag team ace Simon Gotch stepping foot in the ring against the Von Erich boys this Wednesday night.
“This is such a big title fight we’ve gone ahead and made this a double main event alongside our Opera Cup semi-finals,” said Court Bauer. “Fatu is pound-for-pound the most dangerous man on the planet. The Von Erichs are the only guys who have had success against Fatu… and happen to be the same guys Fatu is trying to take the belts away from this Wednesday. This is going to be a good one.”
Will Fatu become the first-ever double champion in MLW history?
