FUSION Preview: Hart vs. MJF World Middleweight Title Bout to main event
Tony Schiavone and Rich Bocchini host a night of top ranked wrestling.
Schiavone will resume his duties as the regular analyst moving forward, joining play-by-play commentator Bocchini as MLW’s flagship broadcast team.
Can MJF complete the Dynasty’s sweep of the Hart Foundation? This week on FUSION will we finally get the answer in a big main event.
One-half of the new World Tag Team Champions MJF wants more gold and this week on FUSION the bigmouth New Yorker will look to become a double champion when he challenges for the title he never lost in the ring: the World Middleweight Championship.
The first-ever World Middleweight Champion MJF has never gotten over Teddy Hart walking around with “his” World Middleweight Championship. So much so, MJF has run his mouth calling Hart a “fraud” – and that’s one of the more polite terms used when the trust fund kid trolls Hart on social media and in the press.
Hart will be attempting a record-setting 5th title defense when the two clash in New York City on FUSION this week.
The Dynasty enter the title bout with significant momentum. In the last month, the Dynasty all have won championship gold in MLW: Alex Hammerstone winning the National Openweight Championship and MJF along with Holliday defeating the Hart Foundation in a ladder match in Chicago.
The last time MJF and Hart battled for the championship, Hart was the victor… only for Richard Holliday to crash Hart’s post-match interview and along with MJF pummel the champ. Thus, began the era of the Dynasty.
Nearly a half year later, the landscape has changed. Dynasty has defeated the Hart Foundation for the World Tag Team Championships. Brian Pillman was defeated in the National Openweight Finals. Now, MJF looks to clinch the elusive World Middleweight Title. Can he?
In middleweight action, Promociones Dorado’s Hijo de LA Park wrestles Zenshi for the first-time ever. With both jockeying in the rankings, this match has championship implications.
After a near Chainsaw Mancer Massacre, Salina de la Renta vows to return this week with a vengeance. How will the 22-year old empresaria stop the seemingly unstoppable Bucksnort hellraiser? Tune in to find out!
The road to the War Chamber continues as CONTRA Unit readies to take the battlefield in Dallas.
Feel the heat as Tony Schiavone and Rich Bocchini call the action from New York City.
