NEW YORK —Major League Wrestling has a new World Middleweight Champion.

Reed, determined to cement his legacy as the “Young GOAT” put the title fight in motion upon hearing of Lio Rush’s imminent debut. With Rush’s globetrotting accolades, matchmakers fast-tracked the match at Reed’s request.
What’s next for the new champion? “It’s going to be a long year for the middleweight division because this title is staying with me!” stated Lio Rush.
Devasted in defeat, Reed was set to speak to the media about the match and a possible rematch only for CONTRA to attack. Both Reed and Jordan Oliver would be left beaten on the ground. The two would be treated at a local hospital.
