MLW Fusion

Major League Wrestling’s return to the Melrose Ballroom in Queens, New York for its next set of Fusion television tapings is now less than a week away on October 4th. The show is already stacked with some anticipated matches including a Spin The Wheel Make The Deal match, PCO vs. LA Park, plus Daga will challenge Low Ki for the MLW World Heavyweight Championship.

Now on top of that, MLW has announced that two tag teams will be making their MLW debuts at the event as The Smash N Dash Connection takes on a new version of The Samoan Island Tribe:

The Smash N Dash Connection make tag team debut as Barrington Hughes & Kotto Brazil team-up against the Samoan Island Tribe next Thursday at MLW’s NYC TV tapings

NEW YORK – Major League Wrestling’s tag team division continues to heat up with the formation of the Smash N Dash Connection’s Barrington Hughes and Kotto Brazil as well as the return of a new version of the Samoan Island Tribe.  The two teams will square off next Thursday at MLW FURY ROAD: an MLW Fusion TV taping. Tickets start at just $20 at www.MLWtickets.com

The newly formed Smash N Dash Connection look to send shockwaves through the stacked tag team division, using a combination of size, speed and heart.  But they will be facing a big challenge in one of the sport’s greatest wrestling families, the Anoa’is.  

Tag team specialists, the Samoan Island Tribe date back to 2003 in MLW and have featured the likes of Samu, Mana and Eki “Umaga” Fatu.  The 2018 version features the father and son duo of Samu and Lance Anoa’i. 

The “Haitian Sensation” and the “Caramel Colossus” face a BIG challenge in the Samoan Island Tribe. For over 50 years, the Anoa’i family has collected more tag team championships than any other family in the sport.

Will the Smash N Dash Connection demonstrate the critical chemistry needed to triumph over the father and son duo?  Find out live next Thursday in Queens! Tickets are on sale now at www.MLWTickets.com

Tickets start at $20 for this MLW FUSION taping. [Buy tickets]

Mitchell’s AEW Continental Classic Update! (11/27/23)

What a start to the tournament!

Published

on

Did your picks win points?

The AEW Continental Classic is underway, with almost everyone competing. Check in here if you haven’t seen the winners and losers of week 1!

Here are your Gold League standings!

  • Jon Moxley: 1-0, 3 points
  • Swerve Strickland: 1-0, 3 points
  • Jay White: 1-0, 3 points
  • Rush: 0-1, 0 points
  • Mark Briscoe: 0-1, 0 points.
  • Jay Lethal: 0-1, 0 points

 

Here are your Blue League standings!

  • Brody King: 1-0, 3 points
  • Claudio Castagnoli: 1-0, 3 points
  • Daniel Garcia: 0-1, 0 points
  • Eddie Kingston: 0-1, 0 points
  • Bryan Danielson: Yet to Compete
  • Andrade El Idolo: Yet to Compete

 

My Thoughts:

Nothing too crazy, nothing too wild, this tournament only just got started. The only disappointing point is that they could not get Bryan “cleared to compete” Saturday night. Not sure how much of that is shoot given the bad eye, but this was kinda the problem of wanting him in the tournament over tons of other choices. Bryan wants to face Okada for WrestleKingdom 18, how is Bryan supposed to do that at his best if he’s also gonna be in a round robin, doing five top level matches in about as many weeks? And it takes away from Andrade being able to do something. Also a little surprised we didn’t even hear from Andrade on Saturday.

Now as we heard on Saturday, round two’s matches are set. Gold League will see Mark Briscoe VS Rush, White VS Swerve, and of course, Moxley VS Lethal. Nice variety there, a couple 0-1 guys facing off, as well as two 1-0 guys, and then 1-0 VS 0-1. No offense to Lethal, but he feels like an 0-2 going up against Moxley. Hard to call the other ones but that’s the fun of it. Meanwhile, Blue League sees Brody VS Claudio in a showdown to be 2-0, then Bryan and Andrade finally jump in, Bryan against Eddie and Andrade against Garcia. Sadly, feels like Eddie and Garcia are going 0-2, no way Tony Khan is booking Bryan and Andrade to lose their first shots.

In fact, that could be half the reason they did wait on those two, that’s almost too good for just a first round opener. But I still would’ve done it, same as NJPW does stuff like that for round robins, which this is all modeled after anyway.
