Major League Wrestling: Saturday Night Super Fight
Thoughts & Predictions
October 29, 2019
Coming up this Saturday, MLW will present their first live Pay-Per-View event. It’s airing on all regular PPV outlets as well as FITE.TV. Also, before the PPV, there will be a live pre-game show airing on DirecTV, FITE, Dish, InDemand and MLW’s YouTube channel. It’s the biggest event thus far in the history of MLW as they step into the big time, the Major League’s if you will. And I can’t let the opportunity pass me by as I am breaking out the Crystal Ball and my Gary Spivey fright wig just in time for Halloween. It’s prediction time. I may not be very familiar with all the people wrestling for MLW, but I’m using my cheat notes and doing my homework and I think I can call it as it should happen. Let’s do this…
The Pre-Game Show…
Triple Threat: CONTRA Unit vs. Dominic Garrini & Douglas James vs. Spirit Squad
I don’t know who the CONTRA Unit are, nor am I knowledgable about Garrini and James, but I do know who the Spirit Squad are. Yes, it is the former WWE Tag Team Champions, Kenny and Mikey. Kenny was one of the most talented guys to come to WWE in a long time, but the ill will of one of the top guys, either John Cena or Batista, I can’t remember for sure, ended that career. The two male cheerleaders should win, but that’s too obvious and makes sense so it won’t quite go that way. Hell, I was watching clips for the new RAMBO movie earlier today and that has to be sign. Let’s go for the terror threat combination.
Winners: CONTRA Unit
Zenshi vs. El Hijo de LA Park (with Salina de la Renta)
I don’t know about Zenshi, but I have witnessed a few matches, via YouTube, of El Hijo de LA Park. Impressive guy. I was a fan of the original La Parka back in WCW and anyone who is worthy of carrying the name, they have to have something big going for them. I think the future “Chairman” will take home this victory.
Winner: El Hijo de LA Park
Savio Vega vs. Leo Brien
If Savio Vega is half as tough as he used to be, then this Leo guy doesn’t stand a chance. The Lion gets clipped.
Winner: Savio Vega
Gino “El Intocable” Medina’s debut vs. Air Wolf
A man doesn’t lose their debut match or else it isn’t worth keeping them around anyways. Look for a great match and Air Wolf will come close, but he’ll end up being grounded by the man known as El Intocable.
Winner: Gino “El Intocable” Medina
Saturday Night Super Fight…
MLW Champion Jacob Fatu vs. LA Park with Salina de la Renta.
LA Park won the Battle Riot, MLW’s version of Money In The Bank, back in April and won the “Golden Ticket”, a title opportunity at a place of his choosing. That’s why he’s in this match against the MLW Champion Jacob Fatu, the nephew of Rikishi and son of Fatu, one half of the legendary Samoan Swat Team. This should be one hell of a good fight and match. I’d love to see LA Park, once known as the legendary La Parka in WCW, win some gold and add to his storied career. I’d like to see it, but it won’t happen here. Fatu is an amazing young talent and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him as a future WWE superstar at some point. Right now though, he’s the MLW Champion and I think he’ll be holding on to that title, by hook or by crook, for a long time to come.
Winner and STILL MLW Champion: Jacob Fatu
MLW Middleweight Champion Teddy Hart vs. Austin Aries.
Teddy Hart versus Austin Aries. This match could main event any show in any company anywhere in the world. These guys are that damn good. Aries is so good sometimes, but that arrogance tends to cost him the big matches. And Hart could and should be a top star for WWE, but his personal demons and often childish behavior have cost him time and time again. But Teddy seems to have refocused and is doing things the right way these days. I think he’s doing very well in MLW as the Middleweight Champion and I think he’ll stay champion on Saturday and take that trip to the pay window.
Winner and STILL MLW Middleweight Champion: Teddy Hart
*MLW Tag Team Champions The Dynasty vs. The Von Erichs – Texas Tornado Tag.
The Dynasty is the team of Maxwell J. Friedman and Richard Holliday and the team they’re facing are Marshall and Ross Von Erich, the sons of the legendary Kevin Von Erich. Can Cody’s best friend in AEW and his partner survive against the third generation superstars from the world of World Class? I actually think that MJF will be wrapping up his days with MLW to go full time with AEW and that means a title change. It won’t be easy and this should be a fitting farewell for the man of a 1000 scarves, but in the end, the Von Erich’s will come out on top.
Winners and NEW MLW Tag Team Champions: Ross & Marshall Von Erich
Timothy Thatcher vs. Tom Lawlor.
Lawlor is a former MMA fighter and former MLW Champion. Thatcher is a former EVOLVE Champion and holds the record for the longest reign as champion in EVOLVE history. In other words, these two are top guys who can wrestle anyone and steal the show. It’s anyone’s match to win or lose and could go either way. Why not flip a coin. Heads for Thatcher and tails for Lawlor. And it’s tails. Lawlor wins.
Winner: Tom Lawlor
MLW National Openweight Champion Alexander Hammerstone vs. Davey Boy Smith Jr.
Alexander Hammerstone, from what I’ve seen of him, is a very good wrestler and talent. But he’s not a British Bulldog. Davey Boy Jr., who wrestled in WWE as Harry Smith, takes the win and becomes a champion. Believe that!
Winner and NEW MLW National Openweight Champion: Davey Boy Smith Jr.
Injustice (Myron Reed & Jordan Oliver & Kotto Brazil) vs. Septimo Dragon & Puma King & Gringo Loco.
I don’t know any of these guys, but I think I like the team of the Dragon, the Puma and the crazy one. Injustice makes the start looking for super bad guys like Lex Luthor and the Joker. Let’s all root for the animal kingdom.
Winners: Septimo Dragon, Puma King and Gringo Loco
Brian Pillman Jr. versus Low Ki.
The second generation Loose Cannon is taking on the always dangerous Low Ki. This match was added to the show on Monday afternoon and should be an epic encounter. It’s hard to pick a winner when two superstars of this magnitude collide, but Pillman holds a special place in my heart. I was a big fan of his father and I can see so much of the father being carried on by the son. Low Ki is a good wrestler and I enjoy his matches, but in this instance, he’s going down and taking the fall.
Winner: Brian Pillman Jr.
