Samoan SWAT Team (Juicy Finau and Lance Anoa’i) def. Little Guido and Ray Jaz
Seeing Little Guido pop up anywhere is always a treat. I'm familiar with Jaz from the northeast independent scene. He and Guido make for a fine modern-day version of The F.B.I., so we'll see if they remain a team in MLW or this was only a one-off. Unfortunately for them, they were completely squashed by Samoan SWAT Team, who has been on a tear as of late and should have the MLW World Tag Team Championship in their sights.
Doctor Dax def. Vinny Pacifico
Pacifico is another indie wrestler whose work I'm familiar with and have seen in person (as recently as a few weeks ago at a Northeast Wrestling event in fact). He was also in action on AEW programming not too long ago for a match against Powerhouse Hobbs. I'd love to see more of him in MLW, but he was also an enhancement guy here and was beaten quickly and decisively by Dax. I have no idea why they're bothering to build up Dax since he isn't all that impressive and has barely been seen up to this point in MLW.
Lince Dorado, La Estrella and Microman def. Delirious, Mini Abismo Negro and Azteca 31
It's amazing how much more often we see Microman compete on Fusion than we do a majority of the roster. I know he's popular with the audience, but he's also a novelty act and can't be used in most situations outside of these multi-man tag team matches. The crowd was into this and it was well wrestled for the most part, but I couldn't get into it, personally. Delirious would be a nice fit for MLW (more so than in IMPACT) if they decide to use him again.
We officially found out that the Last Man Standing match for the MLW World Heavyweight Championship between Alexander Hammerstone and EJ Nduka (which was originally scheduled to air weeks ago) will finally air this Tuesday on the premiere of MLW Underground Wrestling. That was the most newsworthy thing coming out of this episode, which was total filler on the whole. None of this was egregiously bad, but you miss nothing by not tuning in.
