Fusion Preview: Davey Boy vs Low Ki, MJF vs. Hammerstone in Opera Cup opening round


A double main event headlines this week’s Fusion featuring two major Opera Cup opening round bouts… but what is Tom Lawlor up to?

“Filthy” Tom Lawlor has a special announcement, but will he have to contend with Ross Von Erich?  After being betrayed by his former friend, Ross looks to avenge his brother’s attacker and get payback on traitor Tom Lawlor. 

Will Lawlor be able to elude Ross, or will he come face to face with some Texas justice?

A dream match is featured in the main event as the opening round of the Opera Cup comes to a close.  For the first-time ever Low Ki fights Davey Boy Smith Jr.

The “Lone Wolf of Brooklyn” Low Ki has made it his goal to claim the prestigious Opera Cup and he has the credentials to be an instant favorite to go all the way. A former World Heavyweight Champion, Low Ki is the rare athlete who can match Davey Boy Smith’s striking skills, grappling and submission skills.

Standing in Low Ki’s way is the man whose grandfather last won the Opera Cup in 1948: Davey Boy Smith Jr.  Smith along with the Hart family have donated the family heirloom to the league and has revived the historic Opera Cup tournament to celebrate the sport’s history and reintroduce the coveted cup.

Fighting for his family’s legacy and the coveted Opera Cup trophy, Smith promises to match Low Ki hold for hold, move for move and strike for strike as the two strong style combatants collide.

The return of the Opera Cup tournament after a 71-year hiatus continues in another opening round bout.

In a match no one expected, MLW matchmakers and the Hart/Smith family have selected MJF and National Openweight Champion Alex Hammerstone for an opening round Opera Cup match.

For the first-time ever the Dynasty will clash as the Burberry wearing New York loudmouth MJF wrestles his fellow Dynasty team member and reigning National Openweight Champion Alex Hammerstone in a match that could forever alter the relationship between the two elitists.

All week Richard Holliday and his father/lawyer have attempted to derail the Opera Cup match.  MLW ultimately prevailed with the Hart family getting their wish of having the Dynasty fight each other in the historic opening round of the Opera Cup.

The Phoenix powerhouse has been stacking wins since marching into MLW earlier this year. Defeating the Hart Foundation and collecting the National Openweight Championship has put Alex Hammerstone in the rarified air as one of the most dominant forces in MLW.

MJF, who has been in the league for 2 years has enjoyed a reign as both the World Middleweight Champion and as World Tag Team Champions with fellow Dynasty member Richard Holliday.  MJF has been a fierce challenger since joining the league in October 2017.

With Holliday, Hammerstone and MJF forming the Dynasty in the spring, the trio of elitists have been virtually unstoppable while entangled in a bitter feud with the Hart Foundation.  Now, the Hart/Smith family may have the last laugh, given their influence on matchmaking for the Opera Cup.

Will the Dynasty crumble? Will the Dynasty endure and take home the Opera Cup? Find out on this week’s FUSION.
