News broke a few days ago that current MLW World Champion Alex Hammerstone will remain with Major League Wrestling for years to come. Hammerstone is one of the originals from the early days of MLW and became of the promising young stars from MLW. Over the past year, Alex has become the top merchandise seller on MLWshop.com. Hammerstone would become the inaugural National Openweight Champion within 90 days of joining the company which shows exactly how high the company was on Alex from the very start.
Back in July, we saw Alex Hammerstone get the win in Battle Riot which seems to be a special type of battle royal. Hammerstone would gain a World Title match from the victory against former World Champion Jacob Fatu. On October 2nd, we saw Hammerstone finally topple the reign of Jacob Fatu to become the new MLW World Champion. The best way to capture the impact of this extension is to look to MLW Owner Court Bauer: "As MLW grows, we do so together with our talent and that’s reflected in the new deal we structured with Alex,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “We’re excited to have Alex call MLW home for the foreseeable future.”

Last month it was announced that the Von Erich Brother's will be returning to MLW in January at the Dallas event. It was announced today that another family legacy will live on with Miranda Gordy making her MLW debut at MLW Blood & Thunder on January 21, 2022. Gordy will collide with current ROH Women's Champion Rok-C in a non title match at least it isn't announced now if the title is on the line. Actually, the women known as "The Prodigy" will make her debut for MLW as well on January 21 against Miranda Gordy. Both Texas natives will look to make an impact and put the wrestling world on notice as the new year kicks off.
Rok-C's will be the first to walk through MLW's open door policy taking advantage of the opportunity to work with one of the most underrated wrestling promotions in the United States. In a quote taken directly from MLW.com: "In a battle of Dallas versus Houston, Dallas’ own Miranda Gordy looks to make a big statement in her MLW debut against another emerging player in women’s competition in Houston’s Rok-C. Featherweights will throw down in the DFW area as Miranda Gordy looks to deploy her signature power brawling as she attempts to stop Rok-C’s meteoric rise in the sport."
The name Gordy carries a lot of weight in the world of wrestling especially in Dallas with her father become a legend in the hallowed halls of the sportatorium. Now much like her counterparts the Von Erich brothers she has the opportunity to continue the family legacy in her home state and in a city where father become a legend.
