We look back at last week’s main event between Los Parks and the Von Erichs for the World Tag Team Championship. In the match, Los Parks came out the victors with the help of LA Park Jr. and “Filthy” Tom Lawlor.
Speaking of Tom Lawlor, he is under a lot of scrutinies not only on his refereeing skills last week but also for possibly being involved in ACH’s attack. Alicia Atout is standing by with Team Filthy.
Alicia asks Team Filthy if they’ve heard about the “floating allegations” made against them and what they make of it. Tom Lawlor has no idea what floating allegations mean. He says he’s been too busy gearing up for his Filthy Island celebration, which premieres on February 17. He refuses to play second fiddle to ACH.
A highlight reel of ACH’s accolades in MLW is shown before his main event match tonight.
Last week, Rich Bocchini announced that Salina de la Renta’s company Promociones Dorado was acquired by Azteca Underground, Inc. Alicia Atout lands an exclusive interview with Salina. She begins by asking her what’s the story.
Salina asks Alicia who does she think she is to ask such a private question like that. Instead, she should be asking what’s next for Mil Muertes? Salina wants the gold, the power, and the competition. Alicia is not impressed with Salina’s reply, so she’s going to dig deeper into this story.
Mads Krügger is still on the hunt for Alex Hammerstone and his National Openweight Championship. He warns him that in two weeks, his reign will come to an abrupt end. Rich Bocchini officially confirms that in two weeks, these two powerhouses will meet in a Baklei Brawl!
Alicia Atout comes back on with an exclusive update on who attacked ACH last week. ACH has informed Alicia that he heard Dominic Garrini’s (Team Filthy) just before his attack.
New updates have been made for the next three weeks on MLW Fusion:
– Next week (1/27): Savio Vega will challenge Richard Holliday for his Caribbean Heavyweight Championship in a Caribbean Strap Match.
– Then, on February 3, Mads Krügger will challenge Alex Hammerstone again for the National Openweight Championship in a Baklei Brawl.
– Lastly, on February 17, Tow Lawlor will debut Filthy Island.
We check in with Richard Holliday to see whether or not he accepts Savio Vega’s challenge from earlier. He says his lawyer/father informed him to not sign the contract for this fight. Richard told his lawyer/father to relax and that he’s going to be dozens of steps ahead of Vega in the match. He officially accepts his challenge for next week!
