After the match, Jacob Fatu warns that the unstoppable trio is ready to go while Fatu has unfinished business with Real1. Fatu sees Willie Mack on commentary and calls him over, Mack heads over and says he & Fatu have been tearing things up on the west coast.
Fatu says it’s love between them but they’d love to tear it up. Mack is more than agreeable and he’s down to wrestle Fatu, they shake hands to confirm things. It seems Alex Kane is refusing to give up the Opera Cup. Kane says the Bomaye Fight Club is going international, Mr. Thomas is in Thailand making dudes quit. Myron Reed is going to knock off another Japanese interloper.
Middleweight Champion Davey Richards has a video now, he says Alex Kane has been on his mind lately and he’s been training a new affiliate. While taking Kane’s National Openweight Title felt good, it’ll feel just as good to get his Opera Cup back. Richards isn’t big on talking, he’s big on doing.
A recap of the calling card massacre last week and it seems MLW management isn’t happy with how Cesar Duran has been handling this.
