Last week, it was announced Salina de la Renta would run MLW Fusion this week as the Executive Producer. This was announced during MLW's Kings of Colosseum when Salina de la Renta interrupted the announce team and said that she will be the executive producer of MLW Fusion this week.
While on air for Kings of Colosseum, she announced that she made a deal with Los Parks and the group will receive a shot at the Tag Team Championships against The Von Erichs on this week's episode. In exchange, they would have to align with Salina de la Renta. Salina wasn't finished as she also announced that in the same match, "Filthy" Tom Lawlor, will be the special guest referee.
During this broadcast, Salina also let Konnan know that she has a surprise for him as well. Could it be Mil Muertes? MLW announced on Monday that Muertes would make his MLW debut.
Lastly, Salina and Alicia Atout have been going back and forth on Twitter. As a result of this banter, she banned Atout from any MLW meetings happening before the Fusion episode.
MLW Fusion kicked off with an opening video for the Salina de la Renta produced edition.
