MJF has parted ways with MLW. The AEW star announced on Twitter today that his run with the promotion was over. The leader of The Dynasty faction had been working with MLW since 2017. His contract with MLW did not prevent him from signing a deal with AEW in January of 2019. With his MLW deal ending, MJF is now only under contract to AEW, where he signed a five-year contract extension last July. MJF’s final match with MLW was against Marshall Von Erich at this past Saturday’s MLW Zero Hour event.

MLW today announced Davey Boy Smith Jr. vs. Erick Stevens for MLW: FIGHTLAND at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia on Saturday, February 1. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.

Since arriving in MLW, Erick Stevens has made his intentions clear: he wants Davey Boy Smith Jr. On February 1 at Philadelphia’s historic 2300 Arena, Stevens request will be granted as the two combatants clash at FIGHTLAND. While league matchmakers have struggled for opponents brave enough to square off with Stevens, Smith quickly inked a bout sheet for this match… and do so with an amused smile.

A powerful catch wrestling specialist, Smith is one of the top-ranked wrestlers in Major League Wrestling. A former World Tag Team Champion, Smith’s goal for 2020 is to clean out the heavyweight division and battle for the World Heavyweight Championship. Standing in his way is the versatile veteran Erick Stevens. An intimidating mix of brute force, power and focused aggression Erick Stevens is one of the most destructive forces in the sport. Pulverizing opponents in a manner not seen since the days of “Dr. Death” Steve Williams, Stevens has a reputation as one of the roughest and most devastating wrestlers.

Matches signed thus far:

  • WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE FIGHT: Jacob Fatu (c) vs. CIMA
  • Davey Boy Smith Jr. vs. Erick Stevens
