Ace Austin defeated Air Wolf @ 7:18 via pin [***] Austin gets revenge and evens the series at 1-1 as this undercard feud will continue, with both eventually looking for a Middleweight or Openweight title shot. This was a good little opener with Austin heeling it up well.

– Salina de la Renta was backstage with Ricky Martinez. Martinez wanted another shot at Low Ki when de la Renta got a phone call from Jimmy Havoc. She answered but not so fast, it was Mance Warner on the other end. Warner said Havoc was lying in a pool of blood and he has “the golden ticket” so was away to drink some light beers. De la Renta ordered Martinez to go get the ticket back.

– We get footage of Fatu wining the MLW title last week.

Low Ki vs. Ariel Dominguez: They circle and Ki ends Dominguez’s life with a knee strike for the KO. Low Ki defeated Ariel Dominguez @ 0:15 via KO [NR] They announced that Ki has officially moved to the middleweight division, and him starching fools has been wonderful stuff.

– The Dynasty were in Martha’s Vineyard. Alexander Hammerstone was working out and getting a tan while Richard Holliday was reading the paper in his suit. They were talking strategy for tonight’s match, which aggravated MJF. MJF screamed that he was not afraid of heights, but Hammerstone didn’t believe him.

– Salina had an update on Ricky Martinez and his search for the golden ticket. Martinez was on Facetime and he had found another one of Warner’s life-sized, presents. Martinez took a sledgehammer to it, but it was A TRAP. Salina saw what was coming as Warner appeared from behind and beat him up. Warner took the phone and told her that was another one down, and that he still had her golden ticket. Konnan bumped into de la Renta backstage and told her that Dr. Wagner Jr. will be in MLW soon.

– Backstage, Salina de la Renta, LA Park, and El Hijo de LA Park were trying to leave the arena. As LA Park left, Warner jumped in and locked the gate behind him, locking him out. He then jumped Hijo and knocked him out cold with a chain wrapped around his fist, taking out his third Promociones Dorado member of the night. Don’t fuck with old Mancer.

Champions The Hart Foundation (Hart & Pillman) vs. The Dynasty (MJF & Holiday): They brawl at the bell, dumping MJF and Pillman works him over on the floor. Hart follows with chair shots on Holiday, as the champions take control. Hart follows with a suplex on the floor, and MJF cuts off Pillman back in the ring.

The 411
This week’s episode of MLW: Fusion was a rather great show, as they are in a run of really good and string shows. They are building some undercard acts, Low Ki wrecking fools is awesome, the Mancer vs. Promociones Dorado feud is going along well and the Dynasty & Hart Foundation feud continued with a great main event.
