MJF DEPARTS MLW, FIRST MATCH ANNOUNCED FOR FIGHTLAND IN PHILLY

By Mike Johnson on 2020-01-13 12:13:00

MJF finished his run with Major League Wrestling over the weekend in Dallas, Texas.  His existing deal will expire and obviously, he'll be with AEW full-time going forward as he's locked into a five year deal with that promotion.  He finished out his run dropping some evil promo lines in Texas and challenging the Von Erichs for the MLW Tag Team titles.

We are hearing there may be some MLW announcements this week.

Davey Boy Smith Jr. vs. Erick Stevens signed for MLW's February 1 return to Philly
See Smith vs Stevens for the first time ever!

For the first-time ever Davey Boy Smith Jr. will collide with Erick Stevens.

MLW today announced Davey Boy Smith Jr. vs. Erick Stevens for MLW: FIGHTLAND at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia on Saturday February 1. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.

Since arriving in MLW, Erick Stevens has made his intentions clear: he wants Davey Boy Smith Jr. 

On February 1 at Philadelphia's historic 2300 Arena, Stevens request will be granted as the two combatants clash at FIGHTLAND.

While league matchmakers have struggled for opponents brave enough to square off with Stevens, Smith quickly inked a bout sheet for this match... and do so with an amused smile.

A powerful catch wrestling specialist, Smith is one of the top ranked wrestlers in Major League Wrestling.

A former World Tag Team Champion, Smith's goal for 2020 is to clean out the the heavyweight division and battle for the World Heavyweight Championship.

Standing in his way is the versatile veteran Erick Stevens. 

An intimidating mix of brute force, power and and focused aggression Erick Stevens is one of the most destructive forces in the sport.

Pulverizing opponents in a manner not seen since the days of “Dr. Death” Steve Williams, Stevens has a reputation as one of the roughest and most devastating wrestlers. 

See Smith vs. Stevens live in Philadelphia February 1 as MLW presents FIGHTLAND.
