Two title matches announced for March 3 MLW Fusion episode


Two championship matches are set for the Wednesday, March 3 episode of MLW Fusion.

MLW has announced that MLW World Heavyweight Champion Jacob Fatu will defend his title against Jordan Oliver on the March 3 edition of Fusion. Fatu's Contra Unit stablemates Simon Gotch & Daivari will also challenge for Los Parks' MLW Tag Team titles on that episode.

Fatu attacked Injustice (Oliver & Myron Reed) as they came to the ring to face Gotch & Daivari on this week's Fusion. The match never got underway as a brawl between Contra Unit and Injustice broke out. Reed took out Contra Unit with a dive to the outside, then Reed gave Fatu a superkick in the ring and Oliver jumped off the middle rope and hit a cutter on Fatu. Reed called Oliver the next MLW World Heavyweight Champion and Oliver said he wants Fatu's title.

Fatu has been MLW World Heavyweight Champion since July 2019.

Los Parks (LA Park & El Hijo de LA Park) won the MLW Tag Team titles from Marshall & Ross Von Erich last month. In storyline, Salina de la Renta was the executive producer of that Fusion episode and made Tom Lawlor the special guest referee. Lawlor favored Los Parks throughout the match.

"Filthy Island" is the theme of next week's MLW Fusion. An Aztec Jungle Fight with Mil Muertes facing Savio Vega has been added to that show. It will also feature Low Ki vs. King Mo in a no holds barred fight, Rocky Romero in action, and Dominic Garrini vs. "Mauna Loa." Team Filthy claimed that Mauna Loa is a 14-time Polynesian Pacific Champion.
