Powell’s POV: Moriarty recently signed with AEW, but he honored his commitment by appearing on the ROH Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view on Sunday, and I assume he is doing the same with this MLW booking. He’s a talented wrestler and another quality entrant in the tournament that is looking good on paper even though the brackets haven’t been set and there is still one additional entrant to announce. The previously announced entrants are Tom Lawlor, Davey Richards, Matt Cross, TJP, Calvin Tankman, and Bobby Fish.
