MLW notes: Gangrel returning at SuperFight, next week's Fusion lineup

The former WWE star will return to MLW next Saturday in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Former WWE star Gangrel will make his return to MLW at the company's SuperFight event in Charlotte, North Carolina, next Saturday.

He will face Gnarls Garvin at the Grady Cole Center as part of the February 26th TV taping for future episodes of Fusion.

This will be his first MLW appearance since September 2018 when he lost to Simon Gotch by DQ at the original War Games event.

Gangrel, who works regularly on the indies, was supposed to make his AEW debut last August but the appearance was scrapped after WWE and Edge coincidentally brought back The Brood entrance and "Brood Bath" during the build for Edge's SummerSlam match against Seth Rollins at the same time.

The SuperFight event will be co-headlined by MLW Champion Alexander Hammerstone vs. Davey Richards and Jacob Fatu vs. Mads Krugger in a Stairway to Hell match in addition to the return of Killer Kross, Ricky & Kerry Morton against The Von Erichs, and more.


Next Wednesday's episode of MLW Fusion will be headlined by a singles match between the aforementioned Fatu and Krugger that will set up the Stairway to Hell match.

The show will also see Middleweight Champion Tajiri take on Myron Reed and a mystery man in a three-way for the title, the spoilers of which have been out for a month.

In trios action, Gino Medina, Mini Abismo Negro and Arez will Aramis, El Dragon and Jared St. Laurent's highly-touted mystery signing. 

In two weeks on Fusion, National Openweight Champion Alex Kane will take on Calvin Tankman with the title on the line in a grudge match that has built for months.
