MLW FUSION Episode 49 Review

Matches
1.Hijo de LA Park vs Puma King **
2.Contra vs Chico,Vertigo NR
3.MLW Tag Titles:Hart Foundation vs Dynasty **1/2

Thoughts:
Fusion is pretty much a wild west show, with a rules-lite approach. In many ways, it reminds me of a modern version of ECW's old show.

The opener was chaotic as hell, becoming a hardcore match of sorts randomly and then a predictable shit finish to top it off. It was decent at times, but far from what I would call good.

The midcard match was just another angle, but it was well done. They are really building Contra up, but I am not really sold on the group yet. I loved the heat they got. It's funny that it ended in DQ when the opener threw the rules out the door only a few minutes in.

The main event had the same issue, basically just setting up a future match in the process. The action was better than expected, but all of the stream was let out with the finish. Too bad.

Honestly, this is one of the weakest episodes of MLW Fusion that I've seen and is just a setup for stuff down the line. Nothing was worth watching outside of seeing the fallout of Contra's antics, and the angles didn't even impress me much.

Skip this one.

Overall Rating: 55/100%
