WWE will make an announcement this Friday featuring COO Triple H, WWE Champion Brock Lesnar, Paul Heyman, Braun Strowman, former UFC Champion Cain Velasquez, Rey Mysterio and heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. It will air at will stream live this Friday at 3 ET (8 PM BST) on WWE Network, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and WWE.com.
Of course, matches are expected to be a part of this announcement. The question lies in where and when those matches will happen. Would it be at Crown Jewel on October 31 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, or at Survivor Series on November 24? And also what would be the stipulations of these match-ups?
Major League Wrestling (MLW) today announced Davey Boy Smith vs. Alex Hammerstone (c) for the National Openweight Championship for MLW: Saturday Night SuperFight live from Cicero Stadium on pay-per-view. In a championship showdown 5 months in the making, two powerhouses will vie for the National Openweight live on pay-per-view on November 2.
The pay-per-view will be available on all major cable and satellite systems as well as digital pay-per-view on iN DEMAND, Vubiquity DIRECTV and DISH. It will also be available to stream live and on-demand at Fite TV.
Alex Hammerstone has flexed literally and physically for almost a year about how he is the true power in Major League Wrestling. The Phoenix powerhouse backed it up in June winning the National Openweight Championship and has since dominated all comers — except for one: Davey Boy Smith Jr.
Nearly dethroning Hammerstone in Chicago this summer, Smith would be denied the championship due to the Dynasty’s interference. Since then, Hammerstone has crowed about his dominance. Was it false bravado or the real thing? For many the question still remained: Does Davey Boy Smith Jr. have Hammerstone’s number?
Smith responded by doing his talking in the ring. Quickly moving up in the rankings with wins over the likes of Timothy Thatcher, the Bulldog continued his campaign for a title match and impressed matchmakers putting in motion this title bout.
Now the stage is set for two of the sport’s most powerful pro wrestlers colliding with the National Openweight Championship on the line. Who will walk away as the National Champion? Find out November 2 live on pay-per-view.
