#NEWS: MLW Release Teddy Hart; Signs ACH

Most of us understand the game of Checkers. It’s simple really, hop over, collect pieces, win the game. But for Chess, it’s strategy, patience and playing the long game. Court Bauer is officially playing Chess, and we are just watching the pieces move.

One week after losing Chris DeJoseph to WWE, the New-York based wrestling company Major League Wrestling has announced they have released Canadian superstar Teddy Hart as simple as stating they have “has come to terms on the release”. Less and 3 hours later, the company then turns and signs the former NXT superstar Jordan Myles aka ACH.

As announced via their website, “Fresh off of a surprise return last night at MLW’s Opera Cup event, Major League Wrestling today confirmed the return of ACH to the organization”. After an eventful and controversial release from WWE, ACH comes back to the company he was signed to before joining the black-and-gold brand.

Outside of showing up at last night’s Opera Cup event in Queens, New York, MLW states ACH at their return to Dallas at Zero Hour on Saturday, January 11.

It will be interesting what MLW will do next, but for Court Bauer and crew, this long game has just begun.

Caul’s Call

I have voiced my frustration in regards to Chris DeJoseph going back to WWE and the feeling that his talents were best used in MLW but necessary moves needed to be made. First, Teddy Hart has had an abundant amount of focus on him over the past few weeks with some controversy. While nothing has officially come to light, MLW may have done this to distance themselves from it to maintain integrity. 

As far as ACH, this may have been one of the only places he would have been hired after the abrupt end to his WWE tenure amid some controversy. Here she to hoping both men see a much needed change of success in the new decade. 


Never seen ACH inside an MLW ring? Well before ‘Filthy’ Tom Lawlor became one of wrestling’s most hated men, he was just a man looking for a fight. Check out this fight last year with ACH newest re-signee from a fan’s view on MLW Fusion.
