Major League Wrestling announced on Thursday that Shane Strickland has optioned his rematch clause against MLW World Heavyweight Champion Low Ki. Four months after Low Ki throned the champ, “Swerve” will get a shot at redemption at MLW Fightland on Thursday, November 8th from Chicago, IL.
It’s expected that Strickland will be facing Low Ki at Fightland, but Low Ki first has to get through his title defense against Daga tonight in New York City at MLW: Fury Road.
Both Fury Road and Fightland will be TV tapings for MLW Fusion, which airs every Friday night on beIN SPORTS.
Strickland’s MLW World Championship rematch is the second title match announced for Fightland. Earlier this week, the company announced the main event will see Pentagon Jr. & Rey Fenix (cornered by Konnan) defend the MLW World Tag Team Championships against LA Park & Hijo de LA Park (presented by Salina de la Renta).
The MLW World title shot at Fightland is being seen by many as Strickland’s best chance to climb back to the top of the mountain in MLW. Tonight at Fury Road, he’ll face “Filthy” Tom Lawlor, who has his own championship opportunity waiting for him as the winner of MLW Battle Riot.
