The Daily SteelChair Shot: WWE, MLW, AEW (25/11/2019)

On the eve of the 2020 Royal Rumble event, the stars of NXT and NXT UK will clash for brand supremacy at WWE Worlds Collide 2020. The WWE Network special is taking place at Houston’s Toyota Center on Saturday, January 25, 2020, during Royal Rumble weekend.

It will feature Superstars like NXT Champion Adam Cole, WWE United Kingdom Champion WALTER, NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler, NXT UK Women’s Champion Kay Lee Ray, The Undisputed ERA, Imperium and more. Tickets will be available on Friday, December 6 at 4 PM GMT at NXTTickets.com.

Two of the most unpredictable and dangerous brawlers in the sport will enter the realm of darkness as they battle in the first-ever Prince of Darkness match in MLW and it goes down next Thursday in NYC. MLW today announced a Prince of Darkness Match: Jimmy Havoc vs. Mance Warner for the 2019 Opera Cup at the Melrose Ballroom in New York City on December 5.

After repeatedly being blindsided by Jimmy Havoc, Mance Warner has issued a challenge to Jimmy Havoc and it has been accepted. The two will compete in a match where anything is possible as they are both cloaked in thick black hoods in a spectacular and bizarre match where danger lurks at every corner. Mance Warner and Jimmy Havoc have been involved in one of MLW’s most violent feuds of 2019.

Havoc, a vicious British bloodletter, put the durable Bucknsort, TN brawler Warner in the hospital following a wild bunkhouse brawl. The two would then battle at SuperFight in a triple threat Stairway to Hell match that saw Warner defeat Bestia 666 only to be attacked from behind by Havoc. This past week Havoc and Mance finally squared off 1-on-1 in a falls count anywhere in Orlando match and yet again Havoc found a way to blindside Mance after the match had concluded.

What is a Prince of Darkness Match? Both competitors are hooded and must rely on their instincts, prowess and a little bit of luck as they square off in combat virtually blind. Two top-ranked brawlers, both known for their uncanny high threshold for pain and chaotic fighting style, will unleash a new form of hell but only one can be crowned the true prince of darkness.
