Mystery partner Tag Team title match added to MLW SuperFight

5150 will put their titles on the line against EJ Nduka and a mystery partner.

The MLW Tag Team titles will be on the line at SuperFight this Saturday.

It was announced today that MLW Tag Team Champions 5150 (Slice Boogie & Danny "Limelight" Rivera) will defend their titles against EJ Nduka and a mystery partner at SuperFight. The tapings are being held at the Grady Cole Center in Charlotte, North Carolina on Saturday, February 26.

5150 won the MLW Tag Team titles from Los Parks last November. Those two teams faced off in a rematch on last week's episode of Fusion, with 5150 retaining in a ladder match.

"Fresh off of defeating Los Parks in a contractually obligated rematch, 5150 demanded a match at SuperFight in Charlotte. Going as far as to sign an open contract bout sheet, 5150 fears no one and vows they’re bulletproof against any challenge to their belts," MLW wrote.

"Wasting no time, EJ 'The Judge' Nduka took them up on the task, signing the dotted line… but leaving his partner’s name undisclosed."

MLW teased whether Nduka will have a partner or face 5150 on his own: "When pressed for who is partner will be for the title bout, EJ told, 'Who says I even have a partner? This is the year of the Judge. It’s undeniable.'"

Nduka joined MLW after being released from NXT last year.
