Major League Wrestling will be revealing several additional new talents over the next few weeks as they continue to roll out the Open Draft.

LA Park is said to be back to 100% after his recent health issues.

Joe Cabbibo, who appears as Josef Samael of CONTRA-Unit has taken on more responsibilities behind the scenes in the wrestling side of the MLW office.  He had been working as a senior agent for the promotion beyond his appearances on camera previously.

There are high hopes on new signing Alex Kane, who will be packaged with Dan Lambert of American Top Team as his cornerman to hype and talk up Kane on camera.

Alex Hammerstone recently had a film audition.  The promotion is working on getting talents other opportunities outside of wrestling to help them gain attention and obviously, additional pay.  He also celebrated his two year anniversary as the promotion's National Openweight Champion:

Former ECW ring announcer Stephen DeAngelis, who was the original ring announcer for Major League Wrestling from 2002-2004, is returning to the promotion, starting with their 7/10 Philadelphia return.  "I am so excited to be part of MLW's return to Philadelphia," DeAngelis told this morning.  "I had the privilege of being part of their very first show at the Arena and remember Court sharing his ideas to create a company that features the hardest hitting action and the greatest diversity of wrestling styles within a cutting edge presentation. It's been very rewarding to watch MLW achieve those goals as it embarks on the next chapter in its growth and expansion. I can't wait to see the company and its talented roster make history once again for the passionate Philly fans."
