Myron Reed is getting his rematch for the MLW Middleweight Championship.

On MLW Fusion this week, it was announced that Lio Rush will defend his Middleweight title against Reed on the Wednesday, May 5 episode of Fusion. Rush defeated Reed at MLW Kings of Colosseum this January to win the title.

MLW CEO Court Bauer appeared on Fusion this week and announced the Rush vs. Reed rematch for May 5. In storyline, Reed has activated his rematch clause after taking care of issues that he had with Contra Unit.

Before losing the Middleweight title to Rush, Reed had been champion since November 2019. Rush has had title defenses against Laredo Kid and Brian Pillman Jr. since winning the title.

Reed cut a promo on this week's Fusion saying that he knows what needs to be done to defeat Rush this time. Reed said that while Rush is on the internet running his mouth, Reed is at the gym every morning at 5 a.m. working hard.

Bauer announced that Rush vs. Reed on the May 5 episode of Fusion will close out the current season of MLW. The promotion will return with a television taping at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Saturday, July 10. Fans will be in attendance at the tapings.

MLW has also announced that Tom Lawlor vs. Marshall Von Erich will take place on Fusion next Wednesday (April 28).
