MLW alters their lineup for April 4th!
With the breaking news this afternoon that CMLL’s Rush has signed an exclusive deal with Ring Of Honor (more on that here), that put Major League Wrestling in an awkward spot.
On April 4th during WrestleMania week in New York City, MLW will be among the many promotions in town as they head to the Melrose Ballroom in Queens. Previously, the main event had been announced as LA Park vs. Rush, but MLW has now issued the following on their new main event. According to MLW, Rush had to be pulled from the event at the “insistence of a third party”, which is obviously in reference to Ring Of Honor:
Rush pulled from April 4th card; LA Park vs. Pentagon Jr. to now headline event
NEW YORK – With great reluctance Rush has been forced to withdraw from his April 4th match against LA Park.
Despite efforts by MLW Rush was pulled due to the insistence of a third party promoter.
“This is a match and organization Rush wanted to be a part of but sometimes politics get in the way and that’s what this comes down to: politics,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer.
