MLW Fusion Recap (10/5): Pentagon Jr. Vs. LA Park In A Mexican Massacre, ACH Vs. Davey Boy Smith Jr.

The show opened with a recap of last week's MLW main event when Low-Ki successfully defended the heavyweight championship against Rey Fenix thanks to a distraction from Salina de la Renta. Salina snatched Fenix's mask from his head causing him to cover up and Low-Ki took advantage with a double-stomp from the top rope.

Preview for tonight's war between LA Park and Pentagon Jr. The promo promises that Pentagon will suffer just as vicious a beating this evening as Fenix did last week, and that their manager Konnan will be alone without the Lucha Bros.
