By Mike Johnson on 2018-08-10 08:58:00

MLW sources have confirmed to PWInsider.com that they have signed Brian Pillman Jr. to a "long-term" deal.

The promotion also announced that Pentagon Jr. and Rey Fenix are off their 10/4 taping in NYC.  There's been a lot of rumors about the brothers' long-term future and the WWE's interest in them in the last several weeks.  The two are signed to Lucha Underground contracts currently.

There are a number of other MLW regulars, some signed, who are on WWE's radar of late as well.

Shane Strickland suffered an ankle injury working for EVOLVE last week in Philadelphia.

Ringside tickets for the 9/6 Wargames event in Fort Lauderdale, Florida are already sold out.

The promotion also announced the following:

LA PARK VS. PCO SET FOR MLW’S OCTOBER 4 FUSION TV TAPING IN NEW YORK CITY

NEW YORK – The fans have demanded it and on October 4th at Melrose Ballroom in Queens, NY LA Park will fight Pierre Carl Ouellet (“PCO”) as MLW presents FURY ROAD: an MLW Fusion TV taping

Tickets are available now at MLWTickets.com.

This match replaces the originally scheduled Pentagon Jr. & Rey Fenix vs. LA Park & El Hijo de LA Park bout.  Due to circumstances beyond our control, Pentagon Jr. & Rey Fenix will not be able to attend the October 4 show. With fans demanding an LA Park vs. PCO encounter, matchmakers quickly moved to sign the new match. 

LA Park, who competed in MLW 2002-03, returns to MLW this fall and this time he’s bringing his protégé and son, El Hijo de LA Park.  

PCO smashed his way through the competition in his MLW debut in July with MLW CEO Court Bauer recently revealing the “French Canadian Frankenstein” would be a regularly featured wrestler on MLW cards this fall.

In a battle of two heavyweight brawlers, fans can anticipate a wild encounter in New York City October 4th! [Buy tickets]
