The following matches are advertised for the Major League Wrestling television taping event that will be held on June 7 in Orlando, Florida at GILT Nightclub.
-Shane Strickland vs. Brody King
-Jake Hager (w/Colonel Parker) vs. “Filthy” Tom Lawlor
-Rich Swann vs. ACH
-Pentagon Jr. and Rey Fenix (w/Salina de la Renta) vs. Jason Cade and Jimmy Yuta vs. Dirty Blondes (w/Col. Parker) for the vacant MLW Tag Titles.
Powell’s POV: The storyline is that Brody King is trying to capture the $20,000 bounty that Salina de la Renta placed on Strickland. The company added the Hager (a/k/a Jack Swagger) vs. Lawlor match today. It’s a fun match in that Hager is under Bellator contract while Lawlor is a UFC fighter. MLW is also advertising Barrington Hughes, Sami Callihan, MVP, Kotto Brazil, Simon Gotch, “Bad Boy” Joey Janela, Maxwell J. Friedman, Mike Parrow, and Rhett Giddins.
