The Daily SteelChair Shot: MLW, AAA (03/10/2019)

Two of the truest fighters in Major League Wrestling will meet this autumn for the first time ever in a match with championship implications. MLW today announced Timothy Thatcher vs. Low Ki for MLW: Blood & Thunder at GILT Nightclub in Orlando, Florida on November 9. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.

The most dangerous striker in the game will compete against arguably the best scientific pro wrestler in the world, Timothy Thatcher in what promises to be a big throwdown this fall in Florida. Respected and feared for their no-nonsense, take no prisoners style in the ring, this highly-anticipated bout comes on the heels of recent wins that have them both showing prime form.

“Two of the toughest wrestlers in the sport both want in on a title shot and this match gets them in the hunt,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “I promised our return to Orlando would be a fan appreciation experience and this match is just one of many backing that up.”

Revered and feared for his rugged, technical style, Thatcher is already deep in training for this bout in Northern California while Low Ki has been spotted at Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn, readying for this highly anticipated ring war. Who will triumph when the two tangle in Orlando? Find out LIVE in Orlando on November 9.

Signed thus far for this card:

Though Lucha Libre AAA has to confirm it, The Forum sent out an E-Mail to those that bought tickets to AAA Invading LA, stating that the event would not be happening at the scheduled time. As of now, no makeup date has been announced. According to some sources, the event could be rescheduled sometime in 2020. 

While no matches were even announced, the event was supposed to feature the return of MMA fighter Cain Velasquez. It is said AAA have had major issues with visas in recent months and tickets for the event were not selling well. Last month, AAA moved their Invading New York show from Madison Square Garden to the smaller Hulu Theater due to low ticket sales.
