MLW Middleweight Title Vacated Due to MJF Injury

mjf mlw vacates title

MLW’s first live TV special takes place next week on beIN SPORTS, but MJF was unable to get cleared in time … so the Middleweight title has been vacated.

As we previously reported, Maxwell Jacob Friedman announced last week that he fractured his elbow and would be out of action for up to 6 weeks. 

Because of this, Major League Wrestling announced today that his World Middleweight Championship has been “held up” and the new champion will be determined next week in a ladder match between Dezmond Xavier, Kotto Brazil, Andrew Everett and Jason Cade.

The title bout will open MLW Fusion’s live broadcast from Miami next Friday at 8pm ET / 5pm PT.
