Lince Dorado def. Shun Skywalker to Win the MLW World Middleweight Championship
Well, Skywalker's reign as World Middleweight champ didn't last long. He beat Myron Reed for the title only a month or two ago, but I don't blame MLW for wanting it on one of their own talents. Dorado is obviously very talented and will be a nice fit for it. This was a well-wrestled, enjoyable affair and I appreciated that they were given an ample amount of time. I'm looking forward to seeing what Dorado can do as champion.
The British Bulldogs (Davey Boy Smith Jr. and The Billington Bulldogs) def. The Bomaye Fight Club (Alex Kane, Myron Reed and Mr. Thomas)
Smith is a former Opera Cup winner and was a top star in MLW before leaving a few years ago. He went to WWE only to be released before he could return to TV, so now he finds himself back in MLW. He's a welcome addition to the roster, which could use the depth. There wasn't anything out of the ordinary about this main event and it could have benefited from having a few more minutes, but it was solid stuff and British Bulldogs were impressive.
This was a newsworthy episode thanks to the title change and the in-ring return of Smith, though my personal favorite part of the show was how much we got to see Cesar Duran. More Duran, please! There was more hype for Alexander Hammerstone vs. EJ Nduka for the MLW World Heavyweight Championship, but we still have no idea when that's going to be taking place. This show had two quality matches and the usual storyline progression in the form of backstage segments, earning it an easy thumbs-up.
