Alex Hammerstone signs new multi-year deal with MLW


MLW's National Openweight Champion has signed a new contract with the company.

It was announced this weekend that Alex Hammerstone has signed a new multi-year deal with MLW. He's the second member of The Dynasty to sign a new deal with MLW recently. Last week, it was announced that Richard Holliday has signed a new multi-year agreement with the promotion.

“This deal was one we needed to get done for the league and its future,” MLW CEO Court Bauer said in a press release. “We identified Alex as someone worthy of being tagged a franchise player. Alex is an exceptionally rare type of athlete and person. We are delighted he is calling MLW home for the foreseeable future.”

Hammerstone is the only wrestler that's held the MLW National Openweight Championship. He defeated Brian Pillman Jr. in the finals of a tournament in June 2019 to become the inaugural champion.

In the press release announcing his new contract, Hammerstone hyped that he wants to become MLW World Heavyweight Champion. “I don’t want to just make money and retire. I want to create a legacy. MLW has given me that platform,” Hammerstone said. “Not only that, I still have a lot to do in this company. I still have a lot of goals. If you haven’t noticed someone has that World Heavyweight Championship and it ain’t me and that just don’t sit right.

"I have a platform here at MLW to explore everything I can to do and test myself against the best out there and that’s what is important to me. I want to thank everyone out there and hope you follow me on this journey.”

Gino Medina is also part of The Dynasty with Hammerstone and Holliday. MJF was formerly in the stable before departing MLW.
