“Filthy” Tom Lawlor has signed a new deal with Major League Wrestling, shortly after it appeared he was done with the promotion. According to MLW’s Court Bauer, contract negotiations went into overtime but they eventually were able to secure an exclusive deal with the former MLW World Champion and UFC veteran.
“We went into extra innings to get this done,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “Tom’s talent, passion, and leadership are second to none. We’re all beyond pleased to have his continued presence in MLW for years to come.”
Lawlor was also quoted in MLW’s press release on his signing:
“After months and weeks of trying to figure out the next step in my career, I have come to the conclusion that indeed there is no place like home, and no where that I would rather continue to swing for the fences than in Major League Wrestling,” said Tom Lawlor. “I’m happy to announce that myself and management have come to terms that will keep me in the ring with the top talent, wrestlers, and fighters under the MLW banner. While I was able to reach the peak of the mountain and become world champion in the past, I have since realized that there are entire new ranges for me to conquer and I look forward to getting to the summit alongside the fans and supporters of MLW. Stay filthy!”
