Interpromotional title vs. title match set for next week's MLW Fusion


An interpromotional title vs. title match will headline next week's episode of MLW Fusion.

MLW has announced that MLW Middleweight Champion Lio Rush and AAA Cruiserweight Champion Laredo Kid will both put their titles on the line as they face off in the main event of next week's Fusion. The episode will premiere on YouTube at 7 p.m. Eastern time next Wednesday.

Laredo Kid challenged Rush to the match after retaining his AAA Cruiserweight Championship against Zenshi on Fusion last week. Rush's response then aired on this week's episode. Rush said he doesn't know exactly who Laredo Kid is, but he hears that Laredo Kid has some gold. Rush said he loves gold and accepted the challenge for next week.

Rush defeating Myron Reed to win the MLW Middleweight Championship aired on MLW Kings of Colosseum last month. Laredo Kid has been AAA Cruiserweight Champion since February 2019.

Next week's Fusion will also feature Injustice's Myron Reed & Jordan Oliver facing Contra Unit's Simon Gotch & Daivari in a tag team match, Alicia Atout interviewing Richard Holliday, and the return of Calvin Tankman.

MLW has also announced that Low Ki vs. King Mo is set for the Filthy Island edition of Fusion that's airing in two weeks (Wednesday, February 17).
