Miranda Gordy is set to make her MLW debut at the promotion's first tapings of the new year.
It was announced via the Dallas Morning News today that Gordy will debut for MLW at the promotion's Blood & Thunder tapings on Friday, January 21. The 32-year-old Gordy is the daughter of the late Terry Gordy.
Gordy will face Rok-C at the Blood & Thunder tapings. Rok-C, who currently holds the ROH Women's Championship, is also making her MLW debut at the show. MLW hyped that Rok-C is debuting as part of its new "open door policy" for free agents.
The Blood & Thunder tapings are being held at Gilley's Dallas in Dallas, Texas. The show will also feature Marshall & Ross Von Erich challenging 5150's Danny "Limelight" Rivera & Slice Boogie for the MLW Tag Team titles.
Gordy told the Dallas Morning News about being able to perform in the city: "I consider Dallas as one of my homes. Not only is it where I began my wrestling career, it is home to the Sportatorium, which is where a lot of my legacy begins. When you think wrestling in Dallas, you immediately think about the Von Erichs vs. the Freebirds, so I feel that this is going to be a very special occasion to have not only myself but the Von Erich boys on the same card.”
MLW's Court Bauer said about Gordy's debut: "Miranda has that distinct hard-hitting, southern wrestling style that you just don’t see much today. When Miranda hits, you don’t just hear it, you feel it reverberate into the crowd. She is tough as nails with impressive power to back it up. That’s an explosive combination when the bell rings."
Gordy has been wrestling since 2019. She's appeared on AEW Dark once previously and was in action at the NWA's Empower pay-per-view this August.
