It’s Wednesday night and MLW Fusion is back to bring you some massive and intense matches. With War Chamber just a mere 7 days away, most of these athletes are chomping at the bit to get to one another. Our opening scene is of Ej Nduka, Hammerstone and Richard Holliday backstage, when Cesar Duran approaches them to talk about their needed addition for Team Hammerheads at War Chamber. When the 3 men let Cesar Duran know exactly how they feel about him, Cesar tries to explain to them that he wants to help them win and get Contra out of MLW once and for all. Cesar always being the showman, would not reveal to them who he wants their last teammate to be, and the camera cuts out and takes us to our first match.
5150 w/ Konnan & Julius Smoke vs Los Parks
Even though these teams are set to meet up at War Chamber, they just could help but throw hands for the fans tonight on Fusion. Los Parks enters the ring first, but there is some one missing. LA Parks does not come out to the ring, which is very suspicious but as they say the show must go on. As 5150 walks down the ramp, the crowd goes wild and the match is set to being. All 4 men are in the ring at the start neither team getting the upper hand due to reversals and counters in the corners. Slice Boogie and Danny Limelight begin to take over all the momentum and are giving the tag team champs some serious issues. During the match, music hits and out walks HOMICIDE!!! It is being eluded that Homicide is the reason that La Park didn’t come out with the rest of Los Parks, but La Park follows Homicide to the ring and now we have our 3 on 3 tag match. With their full team together, Los Parks begin their high flying moves on 5150 and seem to have all the momentum in their favor. Los Parks tries setting up a ringboard in the corner to put Slice Boogie through. But Slice ususes the big boot, and slams Los Parks right through the ring board. Julius and La Park face off, La Park has his famous chair while Julius has his slap jack. After they leave the ring it’s up to Danny Limelight and Homicide to try and win this match up as Slice Boogie and Julius are down on the outside of the ring. After Homicide hits a high flying flip to Los Parks on the outside, Slice and La Park get in the ring but all hell brakes lose on the outside and the fight spreads from the ramp all the way to back stage.

Opera Cup Semi-Finals: Davey Richards vs Bobby Fish
You couldn’t pick a better match up than these two combatants. Davey Richards and Bobby Fish are almost the exact same style wrestler and both had very similar paths in their careers. The two men stalk each other in the middle of the ring, when Fish extends out a fist bump to show his respect for Richards and the match begins. Both men using classic wrestling holds and escapes to begin the match, and Bobby Fish powders to the outside to reevaluate his game plan. Davey Richards gets Bobby back on the outside and goes for a head kick and misses, only to be knocked down on the apron and Bobby Fish begins his assault on Richards on the outside. Now back in the ring, Bobby Fish connects with an elbow only to get a one count, Richards rolls to the outside but Bobby follows him and hits him with patent kicks to the chest of Richards. Both men hit each other with elbows on the outside, but Fish counters and rolls Davey back into the ring. Davey Richards now begins to take control and hits Bobby Fish with some kicks to the mid-section, but Fish is returning with kicks of his own to Richards’ already injured legs and has Davey hurt in the corner. Bobby Fish hits Richards with a deep heel hook and Richards is in complete agony, but wills himself to get a sharpshooter on Fish. Fish reverses in a small cradle pin, but Richards kicks out. Both men are using blind instinct at this point connecting with kicks and then Richards rolls into an ankle lock but Bobby Fish reverses the hold. Fish couldn’t get away and Richards puts the ankle lock on for one final time and gets the win by submission. Davey Richards is on his way to the Opera Cup Finals at War Chamber. Davey Richards wants the crowd to show respect to Bobby Fish, and Davey extends his hand to help Fish up and embrace for a hard fought match that tore the house down.
