The tradition of pro wrestling on Thanksgiving will return next Thursday night at 6pm ET when MLW presents FUSION ON THANKSGIVING at 6pm ET exclusively on YouTube for free.
On this week’s FUSION (watch), Josef Samael on behalf of the reigning World Heavyweight Champion Jacob Fatu made an offer the Von Erich boys couldn’t refuse: a shot at the 300 pound Samoan Smashing Machine. While Tom Lawlor watched on, the brothers Von Erich selected Marshall, fresh off of a win against CONTRA’s Ikuro Kwon, would step up and challenge for the World title.
The title bout marks the first time a member of the Von Erich family have world championship title since May 6, 1984, when their uncle, Kerry Von Erich beat “Nature Boy” Ric Flair in a historic match, in front of over 45,000 fans at Texas Stadium.
Now 35 years later Marshall Von Erich begins his quest. Will destiny favor the 6’4″ 3rd generation grappler? Or will Jacob Fatu conquer the third challenge to his championship?
