Blood & Thunder gets double main event!

MLW today announced a World Heavyweight Championship bout contested under Falls Count Anywhere Rules as Alex Hammerstone defends against Pagano Friday, January 21 at MLW Blood & Thunder at Gilley’s in Dallas, featuring an MLW Fusion TV taping.

There are consequences for not doing business the right way when it comes to Cesar Duran. The World Heavyweight Champion learned this lesson the hard way.

After the shocking ending of MLW Azteca’s premiere episode where Pagano betrayed his partner as part of Cesar Duran’s diabolical plan, Hammerstone was pummeled and then quickly removed from the arena with his current status unknown.

Meanwhile, Cesar Duran has moved fast to execute a title fight for Dallas featuring death match luchador Pagano challenging Hammerstone for his championship… in a FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE MATCH!
