The newly minted Major League Wrestling World Middleweight Champion Yoshihiro TAJIRI will defend the title in an All Japan Pro Wrestling ring, MLW announced today. MLW has confirmed that TAJIRI’s first title defence will take place on Sunday, November 28th. Atsuki Aoyagi, a talented AJPW grappler, will challenge TAJIRI in the historic title fight. This marks the first MLW World Championship defence in an All Japan Pro Wrestling ring since 2003.

Major League Wrestling announced Gnarls Garvin has signed with MLW and will make his debut this Saturday, November 6 at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, featuring an MLW Fusion TV taping. A scowl on his face and wired to raise hell, Gnarls Garvin is a smash-mouth, hard-hitting heavyweight. A certified hoss, “Big Beef” promises to run over anyone in the ring… and leave mud tracks in the wake of the destruction he causes.

The brawling bad man from Champions Trailer Park in Louisville, Garvin has a history of violence both in and away from the ring. One infamous story involves Garvin bitting off a chunk of an eyebrow in a tussle… and he isn’t shy about threatening to do it again if need be. With tobacco dripping from his lip, this certified hoss is an emerging force in the heavyweight division of Major League Wrestling.

MLW CEO Court Bauer confirmed in the interview quoted above Jeff Cobb is coming back to MLW this Saturday at War Chamber. He previously worked for MLW in 2017 and 2018.
