Arez, Gino Medina and Mini Abismo Negro def. Aramis, KC Navarro and Microman
The Microman stuff doesn't do much for me personally, but there's no doubt fans are into it, especially in Dallas. That was where he made his MLW debut to begin with. Much like his premiere appearance on this show a few months ago, this match lasted a little longer than it probably should have, but again, the crowd was invested in the action and it was fun while it lasted. That said, no one in particular seemed to stand out other than Microman.
MLW World Heavyweight Champion Alexander Hammerstone def. Mads Krugger and Jacob Fatu in a Three-Way Match
I had a chance to see this in person at the Dallas taping before having to take off halfway through. It was a blast in person and even better in full. This match definitely benefited from Fatu being added as Hammerstone vs. Krugger in a straight-up singles matchup likely wouldn't have been as exciting. All three hosses worked well together and there were some cool moments. Logically, it made no sense for Richard Holliday to interfere at one point and attempt to cost Hammerstone the win but not stick around to see it through, but Hammerstone retaining was the right result to set up him and Holliday for the title sometime soon.
For whatever reason, this show didn't air last week as it was supposed to, and no explanation was ever given I believe. This was one of those "special shows" yet there wasn't anything overly special about it aside from the main event. Yes, it was a great match, but the opening six-man tag team bout could've happened on any average episode of Fusion. In other words, as a "special," this was disappointing, but the main event delivered and is worth checking out.
