MLW Fusion’s first time in Tijuana already gets hot with The Dynasty calling Mexico a joke as Salina de la Renta walks by. The Empresaria takes exception and issues a challenge: them versus Los Parks with the World Tag Team Titles on the line. Hammerstone is miffed enough to accept the challenge on his trio’s behalf as he too will be defending his National Openweight Title against The Crash Heavyweight Champ Rey Horus in a Title vs. Title contest.
Oraculo defeated Black Danger and Ricky Marvin
New MLW broadcaster A.J. Kirsch joins Rich Bocchini in the booth as The Crash’s Oraculo walks out to kick off the competition. He is joined by Black Danger and Ricky Marvin for trios action. Oraculo hugs a young fan as Marvin makes his way to the ring, but everything gets serious once the bell rings. Danger and Marvin start off double teaming Oraculo. The two stretch him in the ropes. The double attack continues as Oraculo tries his best to ward his foes off. He finally manages to elude the two causing Danger and Marvin to collide. Oraculo makes the most of it by hitting Marvin with one beauty of a springboard ace crusher.
He seconds the use of a springboard with a hurricanrana pin attempt. The alliance between Marvin and Danger dissipates at this point and it’s clearly every man for himself.
Danger shows his in-ring innovation with a modified middle-rope piledriver on Marvin before laying a double underhook piledriver on Oraculo. Oraculo still musters up the energy to hit a Canadian Destroyer which eventually leads to the opportunity of a picture perfect 450 splash for the win.
Kaci Lennox is standing by with Low Ki and Brian Pillman. The Professional warns Pillman to not let his emotions get the best of him, which he believes is what happened against Austin Aries last week. “This is not checkers, this is chess” states Low Ki, but Pillman still shows his stubbornness claiming that “The Lone Wolf From Brooklyn” knows nothing about him.
The Dynasty is doing a little shopping in TJ at the pharmacy, but the boys want to keep it on the low down as they have concerns that the poverty line would be formulating if the locals found out who they were. Hammerstone seems awful protective of his stash (whatever that may be!)
The Dynasty may need to use all of Hammer’s stash tonight as that Tag Title match is indeed made official. Salina states her Destroyer is gonna bring home “her baby” – The World Heavyweight Championship. She hears all the talk about the undefeated Fatu, but she reminds the viewers that so is LA Park. Enter Josef Samael, and the spokesman for CONTRA knows that Salina craves power. He wants her to imagine if she was a member of CONTRA where they hold power all over the world. The only stip is that she has to say two little words: “Hail CONTRA.” Salina smiles before she chooses violence. And where violence grows, Jimmy Havoc goes, who as Salina’s adviser steps in and as executive producer of Slaughterhouse, books a Tijuana Street Fight between a member of CONTRA and a member of Promociones Dorado. Samael gleefully picks himself as that representative, but Salina says she has the right person in mind to represent her side, but leaves Samael hanging as to who it is.
Rey Horus defeated Alexander Hammerstone in a Title vs. Title match via disqualification ruling
Hammerstone is with his Dynasty brothers as Rey Horus tosses Hammer’s jacket out of the ring. The Crash Heavyweight Champion feels the force of Hammer as he barrels him into the corner. After stomping him in the corner, Hammerstone takes a moment to bow before tossing Horus with a pumphandle suplex.
Horus rolls to the outside to recuperate, but Hammerstone stays on the attack. He shows his strength as he gorilla presses Horus’ head onto the apron. Hammer is too soon to celebrate and Horus makes him feel all the effects as he does several dives onto the outside and carpe diems the perfect moment to land a top rope leg drop on top of Hammer’s head.
Hammerstone however takes control back with one rock solid lariat.
Hammerstone slows the pace down by choking Horus in the corner all while taking every opportunity to gloat. Hammerstone tries to use his strength to get the better of The Crash Champ, but the high-flying Horus catches mad air to crash down upon Hammer to the outside from across the ring.
Hammerstone still doesn’t change his power-infused gameplan which plays right into the quick hands (and legs) of Horus, but not for long as Hammer catches him with a bicycle kick and plants Rey down with a ring-shaking sit-out powerbomb. It’s almost good enough for three, but Horus kicks out just in the nick of time.
The styles clash continues as Horus gets a very near fall himself with a springboard tornado DDT. Frustrated, Horus shoves the referee in the corner as Hammerstone accidentally charges into the official in the corner. Distracted, Horus gets picked up for a burning hammer and has a clear three count, but the ref can’t answer the fall. Hammer was about to help shake the ref too,, but instead decides to grab a chair from the outside. He smacks Horus with it before dragging the ref over, yet Horus kicks out. Hammerstone props the chair up between the turnbuckles, but the tide turns in Horus’ favor with a drop toe hold, crashing Hammer’s skull into his own obstacle. Horus hits his 450 finisher, but Holliday and MJF reappear to make the save. They attack The Crash Heavyweight Champion and the official calls for the bell, signifying a DQ win for Horus, meaning no belts change hands
The Dynasty defeated Los Parks (El Hijo de LA Park & LA Park Jr.) to retain The MLW World Tag Team Titles
Before the match takes place, MJF has some unsavory things about the border before Holliday reminds the crowd that they’re better than them (and they know it). El Hijo grabs the stick and has some unsavory things to say about The Dynasty which gets that Tijuana crowd riled up.
The bell rings and El Hijo starts off against MJF, but it doesn’t take long for both Dynasty members to roll outside to safety. Once the two muster up the courage to step back in, MJF tags in Holliday.

Holliday shows his in-ring expertise against Hijo, but Hijo cracks backstabber and the younger LA Park Jr. gets in on the action with some corner dropkicks.
The Dynasty display their penchant for underhandedness as they continue the attack on Hijo. Holliday continues to control the pace, but MJF gets the tag in and the duo work a double-rope suplex. Los Parks manage to get the momentum in their favor and slam down on Holliday with a flapjack that had to reverberate his Air Pods. Los Parks controls all aspects of the arena as the execute stereo suicide dives onto The Dynasty. While the referee’s back is turned Holliday kicks the ropes hindering Hijo’s progress and displays his pure strength with a gutwrench powerbomb (called “The Market Crash” for consumers). MJF joins in on the pin for leverage and The Dynasty retain.
The tone of Tijuana will deepen to a darker shade of red next week as Jimmy Havoc’s Slaughterhouse commences and the advisor of Promociones Dorado will face both Damian 666 and returning Savio Vega next week!
