Los Parks' first MLW Tag Team title defense is now set.
MLW has announced that Los Parks will defend their titles against TJP & Bu Ku Dao on MLW Fusion next Wednesday. TJP & Dao became first in line for a shot at Los Parks' titles by defeating Violence is Forever (Dominic Garrini & Kevin Ku) in a Tag Team Championship eliminator match on this week's Fusion.
Dao pinned Ku in the eliminator match after TJP hit a frog splash from the top rope. TJP cut a brief promo after the match and said it's a new year in MLW and he and his protege Dao are taking a stroll through Los Parks next week.
Los Parks (LA Park & El Hijo de LA Park) won the MLW Tag Team titles by defeating Marshall & Ross Von Erich on Fusion earlier this month. In storyline, Salina de la Renta was the executive producer for that episode and made tom Lawlor -- a rival of the Von Erichs -- the special guest referee for the Tag Team title match. Lawlor favored Los Parks throughout the match, doing fast counts for them, slow counting when the Von Erichs went for pins, and refusing to count a pin for the Von Erichs at one point.
MLW has said that the Von Erichs "have deferred their rematch with Los Parks until they’ve settled unfinished business with Team Filthy."
Next week's MLW Fusion will also feature Alex Hammerstone facing Contra Unit's Mads Krugger in a Baklei Brawl. Baklei Brawls "are bareknuckle, anything goes illegal prize fights."
MLW Fusion premieres on YouTube, Fubo Sports, and the Roku Channel at 7 p.m. Eastern on Wednesdays.
