National Openweight title match set for next week's MLW Fusion


A National Openweight Championship match is set for next week's edition of MLW Fusion.

MLW has announced that National Openweight Champion Alexander Hammerstone will defend his title against LA Park on Fusion next Wednesday. The episode premieres on MLW's YouTube channel at 7 p.m. Eastern time.

Park declared on Fusion two weeks ago that he was challenging Hammerstone to a National Openweight Championship match. In an interview on this week's show, Park's manager Salina de la Renta said she's addicted to gold and is coming after the National Openweight Championship. De la Renta said she doesn't think Hammerstone is in the right mindset due to his issues with Contra Unit. De la Renta also insulted interviewer Alicia Atout and said Hammerstone's Dynasty stablemate Richard Holliday is Atout's "boy toy."

De la Renta said Atout should go tell The Dynasty what's going to happen next week. Later in the episode, Hammerstone told Atout that The Dynasty will handle it. Hammerstone said The Dynasty aren't afraid of Promociones Dorado and their "over-aged, over-sized, plus-sized catalog luchadores."

Hammerstone is the only wrestler who has held MLW's National Openweight Championship. He became the inaugural champion by winning a tournament in June 2019.

Los Parks are the current MLW Tag Team Champions. LA Park & El Hijo de LA Park retained their titles against Contra Unit's Simon Gotch & Daivari on Fusion this week.

MLW has also announced that Mil Muertes vs. Parrow will take place on Fusion in two weeks (Wednesday, March 17). Parrow returned to MLW by winning a squash match on this week's Fusion.
