Teddy Hart vs Jimmy Havoc was just announced for their 6/1 show. This has to be one of Havoc's last MLW matches since he's signed to AEW.

Looking forward to checking that one out.

Looks like Alex Hammerstone vs Brian Pillman for the new Openweight title. I actually want Hammerstone to take this one. Hart Foundation have most of the belts anyway and Pillman is still really green.

Sami Callihan is done with the company after causing extensive damage to the venue. Dude really lives the gimmick.

On the one hand, he shouldn't have been a dick and fucked up a venue that a well-off businessman has rented and is paying him to perform in. On the other, I heard he spit in Corny's face and dared him to fight, so I still love him.

Cornette mentioned a Tom Lawler/Von Erichs vs COBRA match that was supposed to be good. Is it online anywhere

It’ll be available on YouTube on the MLW page fairly soon, I think the schedule for that is always a week after the tv airings.

Sami needs to stop forcing shitty catchphrases, but I'm in full agreement with heels being heels. It's one of the reasons I've liked Sami for so long.

Schiavone is returning to the booth during the summer.

I wonder where that leaves Cornette with things? The press release said Tony and Rich would be handling announcing duties when he returns. Is Cornette on the outs over the Callihan thing?

It's too bad they are done with Sami as that last match he had with Warner was some fun stuff and it was obvious it was going to lead to a bigger story. I get the idea behind things though as it happened. If he damaged that much in the arena, if it wasn't planned and agreed upon ahead of time to do the spots that caused damages, then he probably should be on the hook for the costs. And I am assuming he refused to cooperate with those costs.

It's too bad as I was really starting to get into this face run of his in MLDub

Some of it may have to do with Cornette having previous commitments as well as his refusal to work shows in NY.

Yeah, that episode w/ Warner/Callihan and this this past weekends one with the Lawler/Von Erichs vs Contra Unit six man was a fucking blast. Dare I say these last few weeks feels more oldschool mid90s ECW of a vibe than ever before? Mixed with a caribbean wrestling energy (which will just be more prounced with Savio Vega in) as well with the heated brawls and wild tone to especially the main programs. That six man was chaotic as fuck, more the postmatch even than the match itself in some ways. Contra Unit is being booked tremendously from the start and easily the most effective heel faction out there in wrestling anywhere right now

The Ringer has an article on the behind the scenes going ons at MLW right now.

Damn. It's pretty cool that even secondary promotions like MLW are getting mainstream publicity in the year of our lord 2019.

Really dug that article, it was pretty in depth about the MLW backstage scene

So been a grip since I've commented on this company but I'm still enjoying the content on a weekly basis. Honestly, I don't feel like MLW has lost a step since losing random talent a bit. They obviously have a tremendous talent scout or something as the guys they keep bringing in are in some cases kind of unknown, but really are adding to the product positively.

The War Chamber match this past week was really fuckin good shit. Spoilers from Dallas showcased a really strong lead-in to the pay per view in early November for sure.

I'm giving some thought to going to Chicago for the ppv actually. We hit up All Out and AAW Labor Day weekend and had a great time, so I want to get back for MLW or AEW Thanksgiving Eve. To say the least, the Chicago wrestling market is HUGE right now.

I was very surprised to read that this morning. I wonder where he's headed. He loves working the indies and on his F4W radio show.

If he really loves working the indies, I'm thinking Impact would be his best route.

If he wants to get paid, I think NXT probably is his best route. WWE's signing a bunch of MMA dudes and Lawlor, IMHO, is a bit too underseasoned for AEW.

Surprised to hear this news. MLW had, I thought, made an angle out of him possibly looking at other companies as they did a brief interview with him on the last Fusion episode about it. Guess it wasn't a work.

MLW is bringing The Opera Cup back. I'd never heard of it, but apparently it is something owned by the Hart family. It's a mini tournament of 8. They ran an angle that per the Hart family, in order to allow them to use the Cup, they had to be able to choose one of the match-ups, and they chose Hammerstone vs MJF, his stablemate. Also announced previously was TJP vs Brian Pillman, Jr. They just announced the 3rd match, and I'm so fucking stoked for it, Davey Boy Smith, Jr. vs Shinjiro Otani!

https://mlw.com/2019/11/22/tom-lawlor-signs-new-multi-year-exclusive-agreement-with-mlw/

He just re-signed for a multi-year deal.

Fuck yes! I'm not an MMA fan, so I had no idea who he was before watching MLW, but he's become one of my favorite since it came back. When he works indies, he always has the best entrances.

So the Lawler leaving MLW thing was a work after all it appears, and now it led to him going heel on the Von Erichs on the Thanksgiving episode. I'm not totally bought on the idea of Lawler going heel but I'm willing to give it a shot.

He started his run when MLW came back as a heel, and he was really good. He only turned face to go after Low-Ki and the belt. I'm very interested to see where they go this time with him as a heel.

Yeah I liked the Team Lawler heel run for sure, but I was just getting accustomed to him as a babyface and I thought generally that was working. But then again he really is a natural heel so this makes sense.

Showtime interested in MLW.  AEW might have some competition for guys wanting leave WWE:

Please save us from Dark Order and Brandi.  Just keep the showrunners from the last few seasons of Dexter far away.

I have been saying, since ECW left TNN in the summer of 2000, that a premium channel hosting a wrestling show could prove fantastic. It's traditionally cheap programming with a built-in audience, good or bad.

They still have a couple exclusive guys with hype like Pillman Jr and Tom Lawlor, right?  I’ve actually never gotten around to watching an MLW show

Lawlor just re-signed recently. Pillman is still there, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him and Davey Boy, Jr. go to AEW if they want them, sooner or later.

They have their shows on both Fite and YouTube, which are free, if you want to check them out. They're really solid.

I had heard they were on Fire, which I’ve never bothered to download but didn’t realize YouTube.  Thanks for the heads up.  Will have to check them out when I finally get around to checking out NWA.

I had thought the Hart Foundation Redux had resigned around the time AEW was coming about.  Will be interesting if they are free to move soon or if an Amazon partnership helps this group shape into another viable group.

I watch at least 6-7 different companies a week through YouTube and Fite (and IWTV). There's so much free content on both of them. Some pretty bad, but there are also some top notch companies on there. Giving up on all WWE programming has freed up a lot of time, plus I watch some at work when I can.

MLW signed indy favorites "Dirty Daddy" Chris Dickinson and Kevin Ku. I think both dudes are great fits for MLW.

Ku's kind of obvious signing since his tag team partner Dominic Garrini has been with MLW for a few months.

Dirty Daddy is a guy that I'm surprised hasn't been on any major roster until now. He's yoked af, is great as a fired up babyface or monster heel. He's rough around the edges promo wise but very charismatic.

Daaaaaamn good signings and the kind that they'll be better served by. Dickinson isn't on my list of favorites but he has a definite allure to how he works, on a level most other indy geeks just don't have. Him and Fatu ripping into each other should be really fun.

With Chris being signed, which is awesome, I'm waiting for Deppen to join him there. He'd be great for MLW. I just want to see Tony on my TV every week, besides with GCW and the other indies he's working.
