Sami Callihan returns to MLW as a member of its 2024 roster on January 6th and he’s got a high-profile opponent standing across the ring for his highly anticipated return.

In Callihan’s first singles match in an MLW ring in nearly 5 years, the Ohio native will fight one of MLW’s most beloved wrestlers of all time: Satoshi Kojima.

For the first time ever, Callihan and Kojima will clash and they’ll do it as a part of the beIN SPORTS TV taping portion of the event.

Kojima, fresh off of a spectacular return to MLW after 20 years, looks to continue his momentum as the first-ever World Heavyweight Champion’s 2024 campaign kicks off against the Callihan Death Machine.

Callihan, a ferocious and unrelenting fighter who can fight virtually any style has his own agenda. One that he vows to share at the right time and place.

Now, two of MLW’s all-time best throw down with big implications for their future in Major League Wrestling. Will Callihan crush Kojima in his return or will he eat a lariat at the hands of Kojima?
