MAJOR LEAGUE WRESTLING – JULY 17, 2019
Champions will clash in Queens next Thursday when the newly crowned National Openweight Champion wrestles the reigning Caribbean Champion Savio Vega in an MLW sanctioned National Openweight title bout.
MLW today announced National Openweight Champion Alex Hammertsone vs. Caribbean Champion for MLW: Never Say Never ’19 at the Melrose Ballroom in New York City on July 25. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.
“Vega specifically asked for this fight and given his 30 year resume, Savio is more than a worthy challenger,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “This is going to be an unorthodox, unpredictable encounter in Queens.”
In the 90s Savio Vega hit New York City like a cyclone. Relocating to the South Bronx from Puerto Rico, the “Pride of Puerto Rico” became one of New York’s most beloved wrestlers. Now, Vega returns as the Caribbean Champion, a celebrated legend of Puerto Rico.
Alex Hammerstone, the defending champion, will be tasked with trying to manage the tenacious brawling style of Vega, a legendary scrapper known for his hardcore wars all over Puerto Rico. Can the Phoenix powerhouse impose his power and youth to shut down Vega’s famous stamina, explosive striking and experience? We will get the answer on July 25th.
Vega has the opportunity to reign supreme as a double champion by dethroning Hammerstone to bring the National Openweight title back to San Juan, Puerto Rico. In order to do so, he’ll have to overcome not only Hammerstone but possibly the other members of the Dynasty.
Can the savvy Vega out scrap, out wit and out wrestle Dynasty’s franchise player?
