Major League Wrestling (MLW®) announced that the 2021 Opera Cup Finals will take place this Saturday, November 6 at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, featuring an MLW Fusion TV taping.
The road to the Opera Cup will reach its destination this Saturday night as history is made when MLW presents the Finals. With no time limit, the 2021 edition of the classic century-old tournament will see either Davey Richards versus the winner of TJP vs. Calvin Tankman, a semi-final bout set to take place earlier in the evening, on tomorrow’s card (the reason why Bobby Fish surrendered is unknown).
The grandest tournament for over a century, MLW re-introduced the world-famous Professional Wrestling Opera House Cup in 2019 after a 71-year hiatus as its biggest annual tournament. The historic event was held annually for nearly 50 years at renowned turn-of-the-century opera houses from New York to Boston, showcasing the greatest wrestlers of the day in a gruelling multi-day tournament that launched the careers of many pioneers of the sport.
Upon returning to the Opera Cup to the national spotlight, MLW contracted the craftsman behind maintaining the Stanley Cup to meticulously restore the original Opera Cup trophy to its original glory. Now modern Opera Cup winners are immortalized in plaques alongside legends like George Hackenschmidt, Stu Hart, Leo Pardello, William Muldoon and Waldek Zbyszko.
