Powell’s POV: MLW added the Romero vs. Samael match since our last update. It’s a grudge match in that Samael and Jacob Fatu attacked Romero and left him lying during a recent episode of MLW Fusion. MLW is also advertising Rey Feníx, Low Ki, Konnan, Salina de la Renta, Simon Gotch, Jacob Fatu, Puma King, Myron Reed, Ace Austin, and Ariel Dominguez. For ticket information, visit MLWTickets.com. MLW is selling tickets to this event for $20, and a $30 combo pack can also be purchased for the April 4-5 shows.
