Ichiban def. Jesus Rodriguez
This was an impromptu match made by executive producer Salina de la Renta. Rodriguez was obviously expecting it because he was already dressed in ring gear under his suit. He's largely being comic relief in the past, so it was weird that he had a somewhat competitive match with Ichibn, who is next in line for a shot at the MLW World Middleweight Championship. Rocky Romero and Janai Kai, who were backed by Renta at Slaughterhouse, laid out Ichiban afterward.
Salina de la Renta Named Jacob Fatu as MLW World Heavyweight Champion Alex Kane's Next Challenger
Renta appeared in front of the audience at the start of the show and again here to introduce Kane as Kane's opponent at Fightland. This was kept short and sweet and the crowd reacted with "Holy shit" chants (assuming they were legitimate and weren't edited in). That's a big match and Kane's title feels like it's in actual jeopardy. Hopefully the build is better than it was for Kane vs. Davey Boy Smith Jr. heading into Slaughterhouse (even though it was changed to Kane vs. Tom Lawlor anyway due to a last-minute health issue with Smith).
This was somehow more of a throwaway show than last week. Yes, the Fightland main event was set in stone as well as an inter-promotional match in the midcard, but there was a whole lot of filler in the middle. Hell, even Ichiban vs. Rodriguez felt like a waste of time because Rodriguez doesn't wrestle regularly, but at least that resulted in a win for Ichiban. They even aired footage of a match between Romero and Volador Jr. from a CMLL event in June. It's cool MLW has formed a working relationship with CMLL, but the outdated content remains an issue for Fusion.
