Major League Wrestling issued the following press release announcing a new matchup for the January 6th Kings of Colosseum special. The Von Erich brothers will be defending the MLW tag team titles against the Dirty Blondes, who will be accompanied by the legendary Colonel Parker. Details are below.
NEW YORK — Major League Wrestling (“MLW”) today announced a Tornado World Tag Team Championship Match: Ross & Marshall Von Erich (champions) vs. Colonel Parker’s Dirty Blondes (managed by Aria Blake) at KINGS OF COLOSSEUM on January 6 at 7pm ET available on YouTube, Fubo Sports, and The Roku Channel.
The event is being presented for free on all platforms.
“Three title fights in one night for free!”
After Colonel Parker’s overtures to recruit the World Tag Team Champions for his new Stud Stable were rebuked, the legendary southern promoter reportedly went to work on politicking a title match. Knowing the league was focused on a third title fight, Parker saw his opportunity and successfully brokered the match with league officials.
The reigning World Tag Team Champions since November 2, 2019, Ross and Marshall Von Erich are the longest reigning tag team champions in league history. Recently, Col. Parker sent a “hospitality envoy” to Hawaii including his girlfriend, debutante Aria Blake. Evidently, it was returned to sender.
On a recent episode of MLW FUSION, Kevin Von Erich warned his sons of the suspicious practices of Parker as a promoter, labeling the southern blowhard as a “snake oil salesman.”
Now, Col. Parker looks to right the wrong by taking the Von Erichs’ prized titles at Kings of Colosseum in an anything goes Tornado tag team match.
MLW is making its January 6 marquee event Kings of Colosseum free for fans as a special thank you.
More matches will be revealed on MLW FUSION Wednesday night at 7pm ET, available on YouTube, Fubo Sports Network, The Roku Channel, and DAZN.
The special will air on beIN SPORTS on January 9. Learn more about where to watch. The event will be broadcast on a delay internationally.
