World Heavyweight Title match made official for SuperFight.

Next month, the Grady Cole Center in Charlotte, North Carolina will play host to Major League Wrestling’s ‘SuperFight’ event. The main event for that show was confirmed through a Sports Illustrated piece and it will be Hammerstone defending the World Heavyweight Title against Davey Richards.

Hammerstone had the following to say about the upcoming match up and his opponent:

This is a story people will invest in. Davey is a veteran with more experience than almost everyone on our roster. He’s now my new measuring stick, a test that’s providing a new challenge for me as heavyweight champion. We’re presenting a new era in MLW. Davey’s rise here has been meteoric, but I’m the top of the mountain. Both of us are at the top of our game, and both of us are going to deliver.

In December 2021, both Hammerstone and Davey signed new deals with MLW. Richards signed a two-year extension.

Hammerstone ended Jacob Fatu’s two-year reign as MLW World Heavyweight Champion at the ‘Fightland’ event in October. Richards is undefeated in singles competition in MLW and he won the organization’s 2021 Opera Cup tournament.
