As we noted earlier this week, WWE has been eyeing several top talents outside of the company, including Impact Wrestling stars Fenix and Pentagon, as well as top EVOLVE star Shane Strickland.
MLW has announced that due to “circumstances beyond their control”, both Fenix and Pentagon have been pulled from the upcoming “Fury Road” TV taping in New York City on October 4th. It’s worth noting that the two talents might have been pulled due to their contracts with Impact, and it remains unknown whether or not WWE has anything to do with why they are not appearing for MLW.
Below is the official announcement from MLW:
The fans have demanded it and on October 4th at Melrose Ballroom in Queens, NY LA Park will fight Pierre Carl Ouellet (“PCO”) as MLW presents FURY ROAD: an MLW Fusion TV taping.
Tickets are available now at MLWTickets.com.
This match replaces the originally scheduled Pentagon Jr. & Rey Fenix vs. LA Park & El Hijo de LA Park bout. Due to circumstances beyond our control, Pentagon Jr. & Rey Fenix will not be able to attend the October 4 show. With fans demanding an LA Park vs. PCO encounter, matchmakers quickly moved to sign the new match.
LA Park, who competed in MLW 2002-03, returns to MLW this fall and this time he’s bringing his protégé and son, El Hijo de LA Park.
PCO smashed his way through the competition in his MLW debut in July with MLW CEO Court Bauer recently revealing the “French Canadian Frankenstein” would be a regularly featured wrestler on MLW cards this fall.
In a battle of two heavyweight brawlers, fans can anticipate a wild encounter in New York City October 4th! [Buy tickets]
