MLW: Tom Lawlor vs. Von Erich Family Member This Thursday In NYC
Over the weekend "Filthy" Tom Lawlor requested a strange exhibition match that he insists he's set in stone: Lawlor versus a member of the Von Erichs.
MLW today announced "Filthy" Tom Lawlor vs. a member of the Von Erichs at the Opera Cup at the Melrose Ballroom in New York City next Thursday December 5. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.
Tickets start at $20 at: http://www.OperaCup.com.
Labeled "Traitor Tom" for betraying the Von Erichs on Fusion on Thanksgiving and denying the Von Erich family championship gold, the Von Erichs are eager to get their ex-friend in the ring.
The twist? Both Ross and Marshall are baffled by the announcement claiming they haven't been approached about such a bout.
If true, who is the mysterious member of the Von Erichs Lawlor plans to fight in an exhibition match?

ABOUT THE OPERA CUP 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.
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).
Davey Boy Smith Jr. inherited the Opera House Trophy Cup upon the passing of his grandfather. Inspired by the legends whose names are immortalized in plaques on the sides of the cup, Smith has donated the cup to Major League Wrestling to reignite the spirit of the greats who preceded today and tomorrow’s greats.
After a 71 year hiatus, the Opera Cup returns December 5th as MLW hosts the 2019 Opera Cup tournament at Melrose Ballroom in New York City. The event will be a FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.
The Professional Wrestling Opera Cup is dedicated to the great men who have fought valiantly before us to ensure our passion, professional wrestling be cemented and respected in the annals of time.
