The Daily SteelChair Shot: WWE, MLW, Lucha Libre (21/10/2019)

Major League Wrestling (MLW) today announced a Texas Tornado World Tag Team Title Match: The Dynasty (Richard Holliday & MJF) vs. Ross & Marshall Von Erich for MLW: Saturday Night SuperFight on Saturday, November 2 live from Cicero Stadium on pay-per-view.

For over a month the Dynasty have relied on Richard Holliday’s father/lawyer to put up legal hurdles preventing the #1 ranked tag team, the Von Erichs, from challenging for the belts. With a match set for Tijuana on October 5, the Dynasty lucked out with some contractual red tape that delayed the title fight indefinitely.

Soon thereafter rumours about MJF and Holliday having concerns about retaining in such a championship clash swirled around the MLW locker room. Are the Dynasty running from the Von Erichs? Did MJF falsify reports of having a mysterious injury?

Holliday’s father/lawyer allegedly unleashed a blizzard of legal memos to halt the Von Erichs from their pursuit of gold and realizing their own dynastic dreams. But all of the Dynasty’s legal wrangling to try and bypass defending against the Von Erichs have been exhausted.

The league has confirmed the much-anticipated championship showdown is now officially a Superfight… and will be fought under Texas Tornado rules. An ironic stipulation imposed by Court Bauer due to the aggravation of personally dealing with Holliday’s father/lawyer for nearly two months as the Dynasty desperately looked to avoid the match.

The Texas Tornado match was invented by the Von Erich family and is a modified Tag Team match, where all the members of both teams are allowed to wrestle in the ring or ringside at the same time. In a match where anything can and will go, the rules are simple in this title bout: pin your adversary and to the victors go all of the spoils.

MLW: Saturday Night SuperFight starts at 8 p.m. ET (midnight GMT) and will be available to stream live worldwide and on-demand at Fite TV. You can pre-order at MLW.tv.

  • NO DQ WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE FIGHT: Jacob Fatu (c) vs. LA Park (presented by Salina de la Renta)

Also, at MLW Fusion Episode 80: Jimmy Havoc Slaughterhouse, Mance Warner had a recorded message for Havoc, challenging him to a Stairway To Hell match at SuperFight as barbed-wire will be hanging above the ring. Havoc accepted the challenge and told Warner that the Stairway to Hell was the first deathmatch he ever watched, so he has studied everything there is to do and is going to enjoy it.

During a match with RUSH at an event celebrating the 64th Anniversary of the Coliseo De Monterrey in Mexico, La Parka suffered a brutal injury to his head and neck after a failed suicide dive attempt. EMT’s were called right away, as he was unconscious after the impact throughout the time he was transported to the hospital.

Later, he woke up and communicated that he couldn’t feel his arms or legs upon arriving at the hospital, however, as time passed, he began to get feeling once again. AAA wrestler La Parka underwent surgery today after sustaining a neck and cervical fracture to release pressure and repair fractured vertebrae. He’s currently in recovery, but no other update is known at the moment.

Since 1995, La Parka has been a staple of Mexican Lucha Libre promotions, like CMLL and AAA. La Parka is not LA Park, who currently wrestles for MLW. The injured wrestler is the man who replaced LA Park in AAA years ago.

Xavier Woods suffered an Achilles injury at a WWE Live Event in Sydney, Australia, on Sunday night and will be unable to finish WWE’s Australian tour. Woods and his New Day cohorts were fresh off a victory alongside Heavy Machinery, defeating The Revival and Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode on last Friday’s SmackDown. The trio was selected by the blue brand in the first round of the WWE Draft last week.

There is currently no timetable for Woods’ return to action or surgery. Depending on the severity of the injury and the necessity of a surgery, Woods could be back in a ring in a few weeks, like in 6 months.
