MLW Presents Never Say Never
MLW Heavyweight Championship 
Jacob Fatu vs Calvin Tankman 

 Ever since Calvin Tankman interrupted the destruction of Injustice, the 355 lb heavyweight hustle has been a target. Contra has made it loud and clear that Tankman is public enemy number one. Not only did he save Jordan Oliver and Myron Reed from a public execution, but he also embarrassed MLW Heavyweight Champion Jacob Fatu. The Main Event at tonight’s Never Say Never will be Fatu vs. Tankman. According to, Court Bauer called this match a “dream match,” emphasizing that these two are evenly matched in athleticism, size, and toughness. Keep in mind that both athletes are undefeated. Something’s got to give at Never Say Never Wednesday night. 

Team Tankman has been training in Indianapolis for his date with destiny. According to a Team Tankman representative, Calvin has been training day and night, almost living in the gym.  Tankman himself has been quiet and prefers to do his talking in the ring at Never Say Never. Contra, on the other hand, has repeatedly posted warnings on social media to Tankman and Injustice. Josef Samael of Contra has said that at Never Say Never, the Contra unit will unleash a “ campaign of horrors.” According to Samael, every contender says they’ll defeat Jacob Fatu by any means necessary, but that’s what they all say just before their extinction. MLW Heavyweight Champion Jacob Fatu has been unstoppable. Many say he can never be beaten. Never Say Never.

Simon Gotch vs. Jordan Oliver 

Jordan Oliver believes he’s a grown a#$@ man, but at Never Say Never, he will have to prove it against Contra Units Simon Gotch. Oliver and his partner Myron Reed has been a thorn in the side of Gotch and the rest of the contra unit for months. Injustice has said that not a day goes by that they don’t think about the third member of the group  Kotto Brazil being destroyed by contra.  On several occasions, Gotch has choked the air out of Oliver, leaving him struggling to breathe.

The last time these two met one on one, Gotch taught the 21-year-old a wrestling lesson. Jordan Oliver claims he’s learned his lesson and is ready to defeat contras technical master. Gotch, on the other hand, has stated that he will “cripple the infidel.” Gotch is a submission expert. It’s possible that Jordan Oliver could have bitten off more than he can chew.

MLW Presents Never Say Never
Davari vs. Myron Reed

Like Jordan Oliver, Myron Reed is fighting for his fallen Injustice member. At Never Say Never, Reed will challenge Contra’s super-soldier Davari.  Ever since aligning himself with Contra, Davari has been a machine. He is hell-bent on making all infidels suffer. Just like Oliver, Reed has been a roadblock in Contra’s plans to take over Major League Wrestling. However, unlike Oliver, he is a former MLW Middleweight Champion and has been backed into a corner several times before. Hailing from Louisville, ky, where champions train, Reed is determined to make Contra pay.

Hot Fire Myron Reed believes he can start the spark that will burn Contra to the ground.  Unfortunately for Reed, this will not be an easy task. Davari is a dangerous technician who has won championships all over the world. Davari believes that Contra founder Josef Samuel has enlightened him.  That combo of technical in-ring ability and allegiance to Contra makes the super-soldier a dangerous competitor. Can Myron Reed use his high flying ability to defeat Davari?
