Update, FKA the Daily SteelChair Shot.

Following the shocking betrayal by “Filthy” Tom Lawlor in the closing moments of Ross Von Erich’s bid for the World Heavyweight Championship, the elder Von Erich has demanded a match against his former friend… and that match is a grudge match set for Dallas, Texas.

Major League Wrestling today announced a Grudge Match: “Filthy” Tom Lawlor vs. Ross Von Erich for MLW: Zero Hour at the NYTEX Sports Centre in the greater Dallas/Ft. Worth area on Saturday, January 11, 2020. The event will be an MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.

Labelled “Traitor Tom” for betraying the Von Erichs on Fusion on Thanksgiving and denying the Von Erich family championship gold, the Von Erichs are eager to get their ex-friend in the ring and now Ross will have his shot at Lawlor in a grudge match the likes of which Dallas hasn’t seen in decades.

Ross will face a conniving combat fighter in “Filthy” Tom Lawlor. Known for being a two-sport athlete, Lawlor has a reputation for suspicious tactics in his matches – often involving his cornermen. Lawlor has gone on record boasting that in Dallas he will show Texas the Von Erichs are a fraud and that is Lawlor who truly is as real as it gets.

Will Ross avenge Tom’s treason on Thanksgiving? What does “Filthy” Tom Lawlor have planned for Ross in Dallas?
