Last Friday MLW broadcast a one-hour Intimidation Games special on beIN Sports, featuring a steel cage rematch between MLW World Champion ‘Filthy’ Tom Lawlor and the man he choked out for the title Low-Ki. Thankfully MLW takes pity on those of us without that in our cable package and have posted the show online, so here I am with a recap! Let’s do this.
MLW World Heavyweight Champion: ‘Filthy’ Tom Lawlor
MLW World Middleweight Champion: Teddy Hart
MLW World Tag Team Champions: The Hart Foundation (Teddy Hart & Davey Boy Smith Jr.)
The Lucha Bros vs. Team AAA (***)
Steel Cage Match:Tom Lawlor [c] vs. Low-Ki for the MLW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP (**3/4)
Low-Ki is getting his rematch for the MLW World Heavyweight Championship he lost earlier in the month, with a catch; MLW announced earlier today that ‘Filthy’ Tom Lawlor, the man who ended Ki’s reign as champion at MLW Superfight, will defend against Ki at next month’s Intimidation Games event in an environment he’s all too familiar with: a STEEL CAGE. Lawlor/Low-Ki 2 joins Lucha Bros/Team AAA (Laredo Kid & Taurus) as the second match signed for the event, which takes place March 2nd from the Cicero Stadium in Cicero, IL. One hour of the event will be live on beIN Sports, airing at MLW’s new time slot (as of this weekend) at 9pm/8pm Central. This one has the potential to be a bloodbath and I am HERE FOR IT. Peep the full press release after the jump if you feel the urge.
