Major League Wrestling has announced two opening-round matches for their upcoming Opera Cup tournament. The tournament will take place on December 5th inside New York’s Melrose Ballroom. Matches will be taped for future episodes of MLW Fusion.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman is entered into the tournament and will face his stablemate Alex Hammerstone in the first round of the tournament.
“All week Richard Holliday and his father/lawyer have attempted to derail the Opera Cup match. MLW ultimately prevailed with the Hart family getting their wish of having the Dynasty fight each other in the historic opening round of the Opera Cup,” an MLW press release for the tournament reads.
One other opening-round match has been announced for the tournament as the Hart Foundation’s Brian Pillman Jr. will face TJP.

“Held annually for nearly 50 years at various turn-of-the-century opera house locations from New York City to Boston, the Professional Wrestling Opera House Cup was a grueling multi-day tournament,” an MLW press release for the tournament reads.
“The best of the day competed in the tournament and would often be an entree to more success, including the World Heavyweight Championship of the day. For years the cup has sat in the attic of the Hart Mansion in Calgary until the tragic passing of the last cup recipient, Stu Hart (1948 winner).”
