‘MLW: Fusion’ Review (Nov 9th 2019)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s Major League Wrestling: Fusion review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have the follow-up to the incredible Pay Per View that MLW had last week. Tony Orlando couldn’t have done better. Someone stole Tenacious D from Family Video…bastards. Alright, let’s rock the sock around the clock of cock…a-doodle-doo!


Match #1: Low Ki beats Timothy Thatcher

My Opinion: 4.2 out of 5 – This was some great stuff. When you here the phrase “easy as pie” that’s how I feel about this match. There were no issues of two guys struggling to find a rhythm or attempting to make the match look legitimate or any-thing like that. Every-thing here was pitch-perfect to the point that having the match end before it went for six hours felt like a waste. This was one of those fights that had action of some kind every second from one bell to the next. Wrestling is very easy to mock, but when you have a match like this, you have a point of pride to extol upon any-one that actively insults wrestling for no reason. When I hear that the X-Division style is going to become the predominant technique of wrestling, I cringe at that thought, because matches like these are what should be the future of the sport. There are better matches this year, but so there are so few that will prove to be as important as this one was.

Match #2: (Main Event) Myron Reed (with Kotto Brazil and Jordan Oliver) beat Teddy Hart – Major League Wrestling Middle-Weight Championship Match

My Opinion: 3.8 out of 5 – This was a fabulous main event that put two very different wrestlers together and got the Wayans Bros. equivalent of the Vietnam War. I think that’s great. Hart played the grizzled veteran fantastically, while Reed played the hungry contender as well as any-one has in recent memory. The action here was just what it needed to be, with a lot of life pumped into it the whole way through. I’m reminded of James Taylor at a time like this, who once said, “Piss off, NASA.” This was a true blue prize fight and I couldn’t be happier about that. Congratulations Myron. You deserve your shot at being the champion.

News Of The Night:

  1. A feud between The Hart Foundation and Injustice has been kick-started, thanks to Myron Reed becoming the Middle-Weight Champion in horrifying fashion.
  2. Retired MMA fighter King Mo has signed with MLW as a wrestler.
  3. Tom Lawlor is being teased to possibly leaving MLW for another league.
  4. Mance Warner challenged Jimmy Havoc to a Falls Count Any-Where Match.
  5. CONTRA Unit is now being positioned as the dominant faction in MLW.

Final Verdict: 4.1/5

This was a great episode that delivered two great matches and built toward big things for the future.
