May 24, 2020 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Alex Hammerstone will continue to make MLW his home for the foreseeable future, signing a new multi-year deal with the company. MLW announced on Sunday that the National Openweight Champion signed on for a deal “that will see him stay major league for years to come.”

The new deal keeps Hammerstone with the company that he debuted with in late 2018. He became the first MLW Openweight Champion in June of last year and is thus far undefeated in singles competition in MLW.

Hammerstone said in the announcement, “I don’t want to just make money and retire. I want to create a legacy. MLW has given me that platform. Not only that, I still have a lot to do in this company. I still have a lot of goals. If you haven’t noticed someone has that World Heavyweight Championship and it ain’t me and that just don’t sit right. I have a platform here at MLW to explore everything I can to do and test myself against the best out there and that’s what it’s important to me. I want to thank everyone out there and hope you follow me on this journey.”

MLW CEO Court Bauer added, “This deal was one we needed to get done for the league and its future. We identified Alex as someone worthy of being tagged a franchise player. Alex is an exceptionally rare type of athlete and person. We are delighted he is calling MLW home for the foreseeable future.”
