MLW Fusion Preview: Jacob Fatu defends World Heavyweight Title against Brian Pillman Jr. Plus! Mance Warner, the Dynasty, the Von Erichs and more!

•World Heavyweight Title Match: Jacob Fatu (Champion) vs. Brian Pillman Jr.
•Caribbean Champion Savio Vega vs. Richard Holliday
•Zenshi vs. Dominic Garrini

For the first-time ever Brian Pillman Jr. will challenge for the World Heavyweight Championship as the second-generation Cincinnati kid rumbles with the undefeated Jacob Fatu for his belt.

After a string of victories and an impressive outing in the 2019 Opera Cup, Pillman Jr. has punched his ticket to title town. Will destiny be on young Pillman’s side as he pursues history in his attempt to dethrone the 300 pounder Samoan Smashing Machine? and his shot at the MLW World Heavyweight Title, as he faces Jacob Fatu. Will CONTRA Unit rise up to take down Pillman? Tune in to find out.

Vowing to prove his fighting style is superior, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu purple belt Dominic Garrini looks to prove his nickname to be true as the “Bone Collector” squares off with the high-flying luchador Zenshi. Will South America’s double champion use his speed and finesse to thwart the newest member of Team Filthy? Or will Garrini ground the impressive international aerialist?

After going to war in a street fight with Gino Medina a few weeks ago, the Caribbean Champion Savio Vega squares off with another member of the Dynasty in Richard Holliday. “The Pride of Puerto Rico” hopes to bring the wrath of the islands upon Holliday, who doesn’t think to kindly of the legend from Puerto Rico. Will the “Consumers” be buzzing or will Savio be dancing out of Dallas with a major victory?

After a questionable finish to a title fight, the league evaluates the officiating of matches. How will this impact MLW moving forward? Find out!
