MLW RE-SIGN JOSEF SAMAEL

Major League Wrestling have announced the resigning of Josef Samael.

In a press release, CEO Court Bauer discussed the signing (in kayfabe) saying:

“Josef’s achievements in the sport are only eclipsed by his tyrannical nature. I would describe this deal as one done under protest but we have to find ways to accomplish business with CONTRA, so this deal was unfortunately necessary.”

Samael also spoke about this deal, saying:

“My masters have taught me to never interrupt my enemies when they are making a mistake. Now I am the master and the destruction caused by Contra is a source of extreme satisfaction. I don’t care if you respect me. As long as you fear me.”

Samael has been at the centre of MLW’s biggest storylines since the debut on CONTRA Unit (Samael, Simon Gotch and MLW Champion Jacob Fatu) earlier this year.

MLW ANNOUNCES BARBED WIRE MATCH FOR NEXT TAPINGS

MLW have announced a huge match for their first set of television tapings of 2020.

Warner and Havoc will face off on the next episode of Fusion in a falls count anywhere match, with this feud having no sign of ending soon.
