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.”
