Hammerstone advanced to the Major League Wrestling (MLW) National Openweight Championship Match June 1st at “Fury Road after beating Gringo Loco in the semi-finals last night on MLW Fusion. Loco’s style proved challenging at times for the 240 pounder from Arizona, but it was the former FSW Champion’s pure power that led to his victory. After he sent his Dynasty mates MJF and Richard Holliday to the locker room after multiple intercessions in the match, Hammerstone would catch the Chicago Luchador and deliver a devastating superplex. This led to the “Nightmare Pendulum” which ended the fight. There wasn’t much doubt that Hammer was the Top seed in the brackets and it would have been a significant upset if Loco pulled off the victory.
Now he gets ready for the winner of the other semi featuring his nemesis and Hart Foundation member Brian Pillman Jr. Junior takes on Rich Swann who has developed a new attitude prior to a recent suspension, but is a former WWE Cruiserweight Champion and could be the slight favorite. Either way Hammerstone will be ready and should leave Milwaukee with his first major Title. He has taken MLW by storm and has positioned himself at the top with Brains, Moxie and Brute Force. Hammer already has a win against Pillman and has proven already that MLW made a great decision signing him because this Beefcastle is a BIG TIME PLAYER. A future contest with Las Vegas’ "Filthy" Tom Lawlor (MLW World Champion) is very enticing.
