Warner-Havoc Prince of Darkness match set for MLW Opera Cup


Mance Warner and Jimmy Havoc's feud will continue with another stipulation match at MLW's Opera Cup television tapings.

It was announced today that Warner will face Havoc in a Prince of Darkness match at the Opera Cup. The tapings are taking place at the Melrose Ballroom in Queens, New York on Thursday, December 5.

For the Prince of Darkness match, MLW wrote that Warner and Havoc will "both be cloaked in thick black hoods in a spectacular and bizarre match where danger lurks at every corner."

Warner defeated Havoc in a falls count anywhere match on this week's MLW Fusion, but Havoc attacked Warner with a fork in a post-match angle. They've already been announced for a no ropes barbed wire match at MLW's Zero Hour tapings in North Richland Hills, Texas on January 11.

Here's the updated lineup for the Opera Cup tapings:

  • Opera Cup tournament semifinals and finals
  • Strong Hearts (CIMA, El Lindaman & Shigehiro Irie) vs. CONTRA Unit (Jacob Fatu, Ikuro Kwon & Simon Gotch)
