Announcers make it known that NJPW and MLW have been exchanging talent. Rocky Romero is the host of the MLW Radio Network Podcast Talk'n Shop. They also brought up how "Filthy" Tom Lawlor had also been going to NJPW.

While announcers Ray Flores and Jared St. Laurent made it known that MLW and NJPW have a working relationship, announcers were clear that Gino Medina lost last week to Richard Holliday.

Below you can watch Richard Holiday in an exclusive interview with SK Wrestling.

MLW Fusion's opening match between Medina and Romero started slow. Romero hit a giant baseball slide on Medina that launched him to the steps of the entrance. He started swinging his arm around with a wind up that he would hit a big punch but poked Medina in the eye instead.

Romero followed with a series of closelines in the corner of the ring. He hit closelines and was met with Medina's finishing move on the fourth closeline, but the latter could only record a two-count.

Medina followed up with Manzanita Twist. Unfortunately, Medina did not do well.

A reversal by Romero led to him finishing Medina with an armbar. Ray Flores made it known that Medina is now on a losing sreak at MLW Fusion after his second loss in a row.

Winner: Rocky Romero

Grade: B+

Bu Ku Dao entered the ring first, TJP was out next, and then te referee called for the bell. Bu Ku Dao went for a kick, but TJP just shoved him backward. TJP had a standing leglock on Dao, and Dao swept TJP's feet for the reversal.

TJP rolled out of the ring after an arm drag from Dao, but then drove Dao into the apron and rolled him back into the ring. TJP bodyslammed Dao, went to the apron, and hit a springboard senton bomb for the two-count.

He had Dao in the anchor hold and creatively turned it into a pin. TJP then pulled Dao up and smacked him with an uppercut, but the latter gained offense and hit a crossbody from the top rope.

Dao's offense did not last long and was met with a powerbomb by TJP. The former WWE star had Dao in a Mexican Stretch and the screams from Dao were loud. TJP slid him back for a pin but only received a two-count.

Dao regained offense again with a series of dropkicks, followed by hitting a bulldog. He started treating TJP like a punching bag and jumped from the middle rope, but TJP drop kicked Dao mid-air.

TJP was then caught on the top rope. Dao went to the top, but TJP got back up quickly. TJP hit a superplex off the top rope and locked in an octopus stretch.

The two men exchanged punches, before Dao hit a middle rope spinning flatliner for the win.
