MLW Fusion Intro

Tony Schiavone informs us that on December 14th, MLW will present it's first live broadcast out of Miami. It's also announced that the Lucha Brothers versus LA Park and El Hijo de La Park will be the main event. Tommy Dreamer against Brian Pillman Jr is also announced for the show.

Simon Gotch is on his way out for the evening's first bout. Gotch gets on the microphone and says he has a lot of filthy history in Chicago, and offers a $10,000 open challenge to the "filthiest" man who is willing to accept.

Flashback to two weeks ago, when Gotch betrayed friend Tom Lawlor and led him to an ambush orchestrated by MLW heavyweight champion Low Ki. Salina da la Renta would then pay Gotch for his services.

The unknown Ariel Dominguez answers the challenge and our first bout is underway.

Simon Gotch versus Ariel Dominguez

Dominguez goes for a takedown on the much bigger Gotch, but Gotch overpowers him and slams Dominguez to the mat. A series of strikes from Gotch, including several stiff European uppercuts. Gotch lands a short-armed big boot, a deadlift buckle bomb, and a jumping Gotch piledriver. Squash.

Simon Gotch wins by pinfall

As soon as the match is over, Gotch shoves some of the prize money down Dominguez's throat, and delivers another piledriver.

Tom Lawlor versus Simon Gotch is announced for MLW Miami.

Flashback to last week when middleweight champion MJF attacked Kotto Brazil after his victory over Trey Miguel.

Backstage, Kaci Lennox interviews MJF. Lennox asks MJF his thoughts on his upcoming ladder match. MJF says he doesn't belong wrestling in hostile or hardcore environments. He says he refuses to work the match because it's not worth his time.

Promo from Tommy Dreamer, who tells Brian Pillman Jr that he used to be a big fan of his father, but that he looks forward towards hurting Pillman for his lack of respect. This match is next.

Stokley Hathaway gets interviewed by Kaci Lennox. Hathaway says he has no idea who Lennox is, but that now that he's back, he plans on taking MLW to new heights.
