Microman, Aramis and El Dragon def. Arez, Gino Medina, and Mini Abismo Negro
I'm not familiar with Microman or Abismo Negro at all and I was skeptical how they'd fare against the other guys involved, but the live crowd sure seemed to enjoy them and it made for a fun match. Aramis and Arez always work well together any time I've seen time share the ring, so that added to my enjoyment of it as well. I don't know if this needed to last as long as it did, but again, the crowd was into it.
Jacob Fatu def. Mads Krugger
I wasn't quite sure what to make of this match. This had a lot of hype behind it and had been in the works since Fatu lost the MLW World Heavyweight Championship in October and left Contra, but it only ended up being decent. There was a bit of brawling behind it and that's basically what this turned into, but I would've liked to see this get more than seven minutes. I don't know how much better the bout would have been, but Krugger getting pinned already in the fashion he did felt abrupt and underwhelming.
This edition of Fusion was lighter on in-ring action than most, but it was certainly effective as far as building up certain storylines and moving stuff forward through vignettes and backstage segments. The opener was entertaining for what it was, but I'm not really sure how it factors into anything. Meanwhile, the main event had been built up for weeks but fell short of my personal expectations, nor is it worth going out of your way to see. This was an interesting mixed bag of a show, but it did succeed on several other fronts.
