Tom Lawlor vs. Davey Boy Smith Jr. set for MLW Blood & Thunder


MLW has made their first match announcement for November's Blood & Thunder television tapings.

It was announced today that Tom Lawlor vs. Davey Boy Smith Jr. will take place at the Blood & Thunder tapings. They're being held at GILT Nightclub in Orlando, Florida on the afternoon of Saturday, November 9.

Lawlor and Smith Jr. also faced each other at Josh Barnett's Bloodsport II earlier this month. Smith Jr. defeated Lawlor in that match.

Lawlor is a former MLW World Heavyweight Champion, while Smith Jr. is a former MLW Tag Team Champion. Lawlor lost the MLW World Heavyweight title to Jacob Fatu at Kings of Colosseum in July. The Hart Foundation's Teddy Hart & Brian Pillman Jr. also lost the Tag Team titles to The Dynasty (MJF & Richard Holliday) that night.

The Blood & Thunder tapings are taking place a week after MLW's first-ever pay-per-view. Cicero Stadium in Cicero, Illinois will host Saturday Night SuperFight on November 2, with Fatu defending his World Heavyweight title against LA Park in a no DQ match in the main event.
