This week’s FUSION is brought to you by The Dynasty; Richard Holliday, MJF, Alex Hammerstone & Gino Medina.

We open the show with AJ Kirsh being forced to read heavily favored Dynasty promo for the upcoming matches for tonight’s FUSION. It seems that The Dynasty has put fliers up around the premises that say if anybody sees Mance Warner, please alert security.

Gino Medina v. Septimo Dragon

After a video package of Medina turning on Konnan, we are ready for our first match. Holliday joins Kirsh and Bocchini, so we are going to be getting a heavy dose of marking out to The Dynasty. Septimo makes his way to the ring with Konnan in tow. Ding, ding, ding!

Both guys come out of the gate firing on all cylinders. Septimo lands a moonsault to the outside and connects with a super kick. Now, Septimo back in the ring and hits a suicide dive to the outside. Septimo in full control on the outset.

Back in the ring, a near fall by Septimo. Both wrestlers display a wide arrange of reversals, attempts & athleticism. A head scissors takes Medina to the outside, but he recovers quickly and both men are back at it with the flips, reversals and counters. Septimo goes for another head scissors, but Medina just tosses him off.

Medina now takes advantage, hits some knife edge chops & follows hit up with a head lock. The momentum has shifted Medina’s way now. Medina is controlling the contest with some attacks in the corner.

Septimo follows that up with a standing Spanish fly for a near fall.

The crowd is getting behind Septimo. Septimo lands a springboard DDT and gets another near fall. Konnan looking on as Septimo Dragon heads to the top rope. Septimo goes for a double stomp, but misses. Medina drills Septimo with a snake eyes and follows it up with a small package. Medina gets the 3 count by putting his foot on the bottom rope for extra leverage.

Winner; Gino medina by pinfall

After the match, Holliday & Medina beat down Septimo and rip the mask off of Septimo. Konnan enters the ring and fends off Holliday and Medina with a sock filled with something. I was not shocked that Septimo had his mask ripped off, the entire match it was not buckled around his chin.

A promo read for the World Tag Team championships is full of pro Dynasty and burring the Von Erichs. Kirsh’s and Bocchini’s tone during these reads, in combination with the over the top pro Dynasty lines is hilarious. Mance Warner is outside the arena being told he cannot enter due to breaking the dress code. Warner cuts an Austin style promo and says he will be back. We also see a promo for Erik Stevens appearing next week on FUSION.

Aerostar v. Alex Hammerstone-National Openweight championship match

Konnan joins us at the announcers table this time and both men enter the ring. Konnan hypes the AAA/MLW partnership. The ref raises the title high in the sky and we are underway.

Crowd seems to be behind Aerostar, but that is not surprising because nobody likes The Dynasty. Hammerstone tries to impose his will early on, but Aerostar uses his speed and agility to stay away from the stronger Hammerstone. Hammerstone takes full control with a powerbomb onto the apron and then a spinal countdown in the middle of the ring.

Aerostar tries to even things back by reversing an Irish whip and then gets to the top rope and lands a barrel roll splash off the top rope. Hammerstone lands a big forearm, goes for a suplex, but Aerostar slides down and rolls up Hammerstone. TWO! Aerostar was almost the new Openweight champion. Aerostar now lands a rolling ace crusher for another 2 count. Both men are completely exhausted. Aerostar to the top again, but Hammerstone hits ropes and crotches Aerostar on the top rope.

Hammerstone goes to the top rope with Aerostar and hits a stalling superplex, cover and gets a 2 count. Aerostar having trouble walking due to his injured ankle or knee. Hammerstone lands a running big boot and follows it up with a German suplex. Hammerstone goes for a powerbomb, but Aerostar drops down and rolls him up for a 2 count. Aerostar goes to capitalize and attack, but his met by Hammerstone ripping the mask off of Aerostar. Hammerstone rolls up Aerostar and gets the 1, 2, and 3 for the win.

Winner; Alex Hammerstone by pinfall. Still MLW National Openweight Champion.

Konnan is irate at ringside. Hammerstone invites Konnan into the ring, but Konnan just goes to check on Aerostar. Aerostar with a towel on his head makes his way to the back, while Hammerstone stands in the middle of the ring with the title and the mask.

MJF & Holliday v. The Von Erichs-Tag team title match

The Dynasty attempt to make their way to the ring first; but they refuse to come out first, so here comes the VON Erichs. As the Von Erichs were getting some flowers from a fan, The Dynasty attacks from behind. MJF & Holliday toss both the Von Erich boys into the guard rails. After a total beat down on the outside, Ross is tossed into the ring.

Inside the ring, both Holliday and MJF takes turns laying in shots into Ross. Now we have MJF and Ross in the ring & Ross is taking a beat down in the corner. The Dynasty using double team tactics with the help of enticing Marshall into the ring. The Dynasty is in complete control and cutting the ring in half and not allowing Ross to get anywhere near Marshall. Holliday and MJF continue to pick apart and verbally abuse Ross. Ross makes an effort to make the tag, but Holliday drags Marshall off the ringside.

MJF & Holliday continues the onslaught on Ross. A double elbow drop on Ross and then a lazy cover for a 2 count. Ross goes again for a tag, but is driven back into the corner.
