Major League Wrestling officials were not happy last week when Pentagon Jr. sprayed red mist into the eyes of the World Champion Shane “Swerve” Strickland. Tonight, Penta pays the piper for his actions, facing his brother Rey Fenix in a double jeopardy match with the No. 1 Contender’s spot and a World Title shot on the line for next week’s FUSION.

High-Flying Matchup
The high-flying underdog Kotto Brazil will match up with the Fresh Prince of Mid-Air Trey Miguel, who will be making his Major League Wrestling debut. Will the scrappy Brazil pick up a victory or will the newcomer impress league officials enough to earn more opportunities in MLW? These high-octane fighters are sure to get this week’s episode of MLW: FUSION off to a high-flying start.

Promoting Promociones Dorado
Our very own Rich Bocchini traveled to Dorado, Puerto Rico to talk with the impresaria of Promociones Dorado, Salina de la Renta. What will we learn about the woman who has the most connections in sports, movies, music, television and all of entertainment throughout Latin America? Will de la Renta explain why she helped Pentagon, Jr. set up Swerve last week? What are her goals in Major League Wrestling? Find out more about the owner of Promociones Dorado on this week’s episode of FUSION.

Elimination to Elevation in Tag Team Division
The two tag teams who have made the biggest impact in Major League Wrestling as of late meet again this week. For the most part, The Dirty Blondes, part of Col. Robert Parker’s Stud Stable, have gotten the best of Team TBD. But those victories for Parker’s men have come with a heavy dose of controversy. 

Tonight, Jason Cade and Jimmy Yuta get another shot at The Dirty Blondes, but this time it’s an elimination match. Will the stipulation favor the high-flying Team TBD or will the size advantage (and the presence of Col. Parker) tilt the scales in favor of Leo Brien and Michael Patrick? Which team will elevate its status with MLW’s decision to crown World Tag Team Champions on the horizon? Tune in to beIN Sports tonight at 8 p.m. ET to find out.

Swerve’s Eyes Still On the Prize
MLW backstage correspondent Andrea Ocampo caught up with the World Heavyweight Champion earlier this week for an exclusive interview. Shane Strickland will appear on MLW: FUSION just one week after the despicable red mist attack by Pentagon Jr. Will that attack affect Strickland in his World Title defense next week? How is Swerve’s recovery coming? What does he have to say to and/or about Pentagon Jr.? 

The World Champion will give an update on his condition and more tonight. Despite any potential issues with his vision, you know Swerve will be watching tonight’s main event intently, as the winner of that match between Pentagon, Jr. and Rey Fenix is slated to challenge Strickland for the World Heavyweight Championship on next week’s show.

Double Jeopardy Brotherly Battle
As mentioned earlier, league officials were appalled by the brazen backstage attack by Pentagon Jr. and Salina de la Renta on Strickland last week. Pentagon Jr. was ranked No. 1 in the first-ever MLW Top 10 released just two weeks ago. But MLW brass have stripped him of his No. 1 Contender status and put it on the line in tonight’s matchup with Pentagon’s brother, Rey Fenix. 

Pentagon Jr. and Rey Fenix have done battle in an MLW ring before. It was an instant classic. But the stakes have been raised in this one. The two hermanos know the implications in this matchup. 

Promociones Dorado translates to Golden Promotions in English. Everyone knows that Salina de la Renta covets the big gold belt currently around the waist of Shane Strickland. Tonight, the impresaria of Promociones Dorado will lead Pentagon Jr. to the ring as he tries to regain his No. 1 Contender status and his spot in next week’s main event. Meanwhile, Fenix hopes his intimate knowledge of Pentagon Jr. will prove beneficial as he looks to ascend into the top spot in the rankings and claim the opportunity to face Strickland. It all goes down tonight on FUSION!
