On Thursday, November 24th, 2022 MLW aired another episode of Fusion as we review MLW Fusion for 11/24/22. We had 2 title matches, as Taya Valkyrie defends her Featherweight Title against Brittany Blake & Alexander Hammerstone defends the MLW World Title against Richard Holiday in a Falls Count Anywhere Match.
Kicking off this week’s Fusion with a video for Alexander Hammerstone vs. Richard Holliday, Hammerstone brings up the long history with Holliday and how Holliday had been his best friend for 3 years in MLW. Some little MJF appearances in there as well. Hammerstone says their friendship wasn’t just for TV.
Well, now Holliday can finally feel special with all the backstabbing and cheap shots. Everything Holliday has done has now led Holliday to a place he doesn’t want to be, across the ring from Hammerstone.

A preview of the upcoming MLW events follows.
We’re reminded a few wrestlers have been left unconscious in the back with a card on them over the last few weeks.
We get a hype video for EJ Nduka.
After that we get an interview with Nduka & he doesn’t care about the main event results but wants to know why he’s not getting an MLW World Title shot. He’ll be in the VIP section and watching the main event, but the Judge is in the building, and his time is coming.
MLW World Champion Alexander Hammerstone walks in the back, and we get a shot of someone in nitrile gloves holding one of those cards that have been left on bodies over the last couple of weeks.
Shun Skywalker is coming for Myron Reed’s Middleweight Title.
Mance Warner is outside, reminding us he’s back. He puts over a hotline he’s starting, if you want MLW scoops call the hotline and he’ll give you some. He claims that Mads Krugger is actually Doc Gallows under the mask (LOL ok that made me laugh) then talks about being happy with his new truck after hitting the pay window.
