MLW is advertising that Konnan will challenge for their World Heavyweight Championship next month.
The promotion has announced that Low Ki will defend his MLW World Heavyweight Championship against Konnan in a no disqualification match at their television tapings in Miami, Florida on Friday, December 14. The show is the second of two straight nights of MLW tapings at the Miami Scottish Rite Temple.
The feud between Konnan (who has been managing Pentagon Jr. and Fenix) and Promociones Dorado continued with an angle where Low Ki confronted Konnan on last week's MLW Fusion episode. Low Ki challenged Konnan to settle their differences in the ring, and Konnan told Low Ki that he would have tried this 10 years ago if he really wanted to face him. Salina de la Renta then insulted Konnan, with Konnan telling them that they may get what they want if they keep yapping.
Konnan also made an in-ring appearance as part of MLW's Battle Riot match earlier this year and teamed with LAX against The OGz at Impact's Bound for Glory pay-per-view last month, coming out near the end of the match after an angle where he was attacked backstage earlier in the night.
A four-way ladder match for the Middleweight Championship is also set for MLW's tapings in Miami on December 14. MJF will defend his title against Kotto Brazil, Jason Cade, and an opponent that has yet to be announced. Marko Stunt was originally supposed to be in the match, but he suffered a broken leg at Joey Janela's LA Confidential last Friday.
