Announced for next Wednesday's MLW Fusion TV is National Openweight Champion Alex Hammerstone vs. LA Park.  A promo for the match ran over the weekend on DAZN's coverage of the Canelo boxing fight, which was called by former WWE announcer Todd Grisham.  MLW was namechecked several times during the broadcast as well.

It was announced that Kevin Mayer, a former Disney exec, will be succeeding John Skipper at DAZN, the sports streaming service that MLW has a deal with.  It's considered to be a positive for MLW as Mayer has been a big support of scripted and unscripted content, something MLW falls in the parameters for as professional wrestling.  There is excitement with MLW about the potential opportunities.

Conversations are underway with international promotions about Lio Rush working dates to defend the MLW Middleweight and AAA Cruiserweight Titles when it is safe to do so.

MLW is planning an upcoming Azteca Underground shoot for future use and are currently scouting locations.

The promotion has been adding production staff of late as they expect to be expanding their content output, including the potential spin-off series.

Leo Brien, who was just signed, is going to be repackaged.
