A new main event has been announced for MLW’s Never Say Never television taping!
Major League Wrestling’s next Fusion television tapings, Never Say Never and Zero Hour in Miami on December 13th and 14th will be needing some changes made to their lineups after multiple injuries were suffered over the weekend.
As we noted, ‘Filthy’ Tom Lawlor was said to have broken his hand after making his return to the octagon over the weekend, plus MJF revealed he had suffered a fractured elbow and will be needing some time off (read more info on both of those injuries here). This came just after one-half of the MLW World Tag Team Champions Rey Fenix was hurt Friday night competing for CMLL (see that story here), meaning his Never Say Never main event title defense along with his brother Pentagon Jr. against The Hart Foundation will no longer be taking place.
While MLW had yet to address any changes to the lineups yet, today they have announced that the new main event for Never Say Never will pit Pentagon Jr. against The Hart Foundation’s Teddy Hart:
PENTAGON JR. VS. TEDDY HART TO MAIN EVENT MLW’S MIAMI DECEMBER 13TH TV TAPING
MIAMI – Major League Wrestling today announced a dream match fans have been anticipating for months. On Thursday night December 13th at Never Say Never Pentagon Jr. (cornered by Konnan) vs. Teddy Hart (with the Hart Foundation) will main event MLW’s debut at the Miami Scottish Rite Temple. Both December 13 & 14th cards are FUSION TV tapings for beIN SPORTS.
Buy tickets starting at $15 at http://www.MLWTickets.com. For just $20 fans can see both the December 13th (Never Say Never) and December 14th (Zero Hour) shows as part of the holiday combo ticket.
This past Friday night in CMLL Rey Fenix suffered an injury that has forced him out of action until January 2019. League officials moved quickly to replace the World Tag Team Title bout with a dream match the fans have been demanding since Teddy Hart crashed MLW FUSION this past summer.
Both known for conjuring chaos and spectacular feats in their matches, Pentagon Jr. and Teddy Hart will square off in the main event of night 1 of MLW’s December double-shot debut in Miami.
The ramifications for both men are significant. If Pentagon Jr. can soundly defeat Hart does the elusive World Tag Team Title match the Hart Foundation are chasing become even more difficult? But if the captain of the Hart Foundation can overcome the dangerous Pentagon Jr. the psychological advantage must go to the Hart Foundation as they march towards their quest for the championship.
Then there’s the wild cards: Pentagon is cornered by his consigliore Konnan while the Hart Foundation always have the back of their leader.
What will happen when these unpredictable forces collide? Find out live Friday night December 13th in Miami! Buy tickets at MLWTickets.com.

New Wrestling Promotion Launches
2019 has been a very busy year for wrestling, especially when it comes to new promotions launching. Former WWE stars Alberto Del Rio and Chavo Guerrero have partnered together to launch Nacion Lucha Libre. Some of the announced roster includes MVP, Carlito, Del Rio’s former ring announcer Ricardo Rodriguez, LAX, and Pentagon. Del Rio has also hinted in signing currently contracted WWE stars when their contracts run up.

Obviously, this won’t be direct competition with the WWE, however it can draw fans away from the Mexico fan base the company has attempted to build. I am wondering if even though fans are unhappy with WWE, if all these new promotions are leading to an over saturation of product.
Moxley vs Omega At All Out
You have to hand it to AEW, as they are creating some very interesting matchups. Today, the company announced that Jon Moxley will take on Kenny Omega at the August 1st All Out event.

This matchup is intriguing to say the least. Two completely different styles of wrestling, creating what I hope to be a great match. This one shouldn’t dissapoint.
CM Punk All In On All Out?
One of the big names that has long been rumored to join AEW is CM Punk. Punk seems to be done with wrestling, but every time AEW has announced an event, fans start up the rumor mill. With the upcoming All Out show taking place in Punk’s hometown of Chicago, many speculate Punk will make an appearance. Punk seems to have shot down that speculation in his latest Tweet.
— CM Puck🏒 (@CMPunk) June 13, 2019
Wrestling has always been a business where a person never could say never. While it is unlikely that Punk signs with AEW, there will always be the speculation that he will. But what would Punk offer to the upstart company? Name recognition ? Could Punk still go in the ring ?
SmackDown On FOX Commercials Start To Air
We all know that SmackDown will be moving to FOX this October, and the network paid a lot of money for WWE programing. FOX looks like it has the wheels in motion for the promotional blitz informing network viewers that SmackDown is heading to the network. Below is a commercial that has been airing, and many are pointing out that the advertisement contains a redesigned logo for the show.
— WrestlingNews.co – WWE/AEW News (@WrestlingNewsCo) June 13, 2019
FOX spent a lot of money to get WWE programming, so it’s no surprise that they are airing commercials four months in advance. Or could it be that FOX is worried about the low ratings that WWE programming has been generating?

AEW Fyter Fest To Stream For Free
This week is the E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo being held in Los Angeles. During Tuesday’s festivities, Kenny Omega appeared and announced that the upcoming Fyter Fest will stream live, and be free for everyone. It is not known where it will air, but many are assuming it will air on B/R Live. Fyter Fest is June 29th @ 8pm EST.
This will only help broaden the exposure of AEW, and I am all for this airing live for free. I have to hand it to AEW, because it seems like they are everywhere. Fyter Fest looks like it will be a stacked card so far, with Jon Moxley taking on Joey Janella. I am going to go out on a limb here, and say that the match will be a violent one.
All Out News
Speaking of AEW, they do have another big show coming up on August 31st, entitled, All Out. The main event of the show will see the crowning of the first AEW Champion, as Chris Jericho takes on Hangman Page. On Tuesday, Cody Rhodes announced ticket prices for the event. Tickets will range from $30 to $190. Rhodes also Tweeted a seating chart of the event.

All Out will most likely be the last pay per view event before weekly TV starts in October. So I fully expect that the company will go all out (no pun intended) in terms of matches, etc.
Chris Jericho On Goldberg/Undertaker
In Monday’s shuffle, I discussed the much talked about match (and not in a good way) at Super ShowDown between Undertake and Goldberg. Many people throughout the wrestling world have weighed with their opinions on the match, and the latest to do so is Chris Jericho.
Both @undertaker & @Goldberg are once in a lifetime, TOP LEVEL performers and money draws. And even though they might not be at their peak & had an outing that wasnt perfect, they are still better than most. I think @MickJagger & @OzzyOsbourne would agree. #Respect
— Chris Jericho (@IAmJericho) June 11, 2019
It is an interesting perspective from Jericho. Though, Ozzy Osbourne can’t sing at all anymore, and it’s embarrassing to watch. Anyway……Both Undertaker and Goldberg are legends from their era, but I do think it’s time they hang it up or move into non performance roles.
Cesaro Injured On RAW?
During the six man tag team match on RAW, it appeared that Cesaro was inured when Ricochet landed badly on his leg when he hit the 630 splash. After the match, Cesaro was helped to the back by WWE officials. According to Dave Meltzer, the chatter backstage is that he was not injured during the spot.
— Kayla Livin For Liv 💙 (@LivLifeWWE) June 11, 2019
One of those times where a painful spot just happens. I thought for sure Cesaro either broke or pulled something right after the move, so here is hoping he is ok.
