MLW announces a WWE Mae Young Classic wrestler for the “One Shot” event

The following press release was issued by Major League Wrestling to Prowrestling.net on Thursday.

Fresh off of competing in WWE’s Mae Young Classic, “the real life Wonder Woman” Santana Garrett is confirmed to compete at MLW: One-Shot at Gilt Nightclub in Orlando, FL on Thursday night October 5th.

Earlier today on the Steve Austin Show Unleashed, MLW CEO Court Bauer broke the news that Santana Garrett will be competing on Major League Wrestling’s October wrestling event.

A second-generation wrestler mentored by Scott Hall and Larry Zbyszko, Santana is a former Wonder of Stardom Champion.

Awing crowds from Japan to Europe to America with her Shining Star Press (handspring moonsault), this fierce athlete has the distinction of being one of the most in-demand women in the sport.

“It’s very important to me and Major League Wrestling that we give a platform to the best and Santana is definitely in that conversation. She’s a great athlete and is an inspiration to so many,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer.

MLW: One-Shot’s card thus far feature:

Ricochet vs. Shane “Swerve” Strickland
MVP vs. Sami Callihan 
Jeff Cobb vs. “Filthy” Tom Lawlor
Also signed to compete: Santana Garrett, Maxwell Jacob Friedman. Several more matches showcasing today and tomorrow’s best wrestlers will be announced in the coming days and weeks.
MLW: One-Shot will be available within 72 hours of the event occurring on October 5th with Rich Bocchini and Tony Schiavone calling the action.  Learn more about MLW.tv at: http://www.MLW.tv.Buy tickets to MLW: One-Shot today at http://www.mlw.eventbrite.com.

Powell’s POV: As noted in my Mae Young Classic reviews, I have no idea why Garrett has not been signed to an NXT or GFW deal. She is Florida based and has impressed when she’s worked for both companies. In other words, she’s a nice addition to the MLW event.
