Tajiri to make MLW debut at October TV tapings
A former WWE Cruiserweight Champion and ECW Television Champion will be making their MLW debut this October.
MLW uploaded a video on Monday night announcing that Tajiri will debut at their Fightland set of television tapings on Saturday, October 2. The tapings are taking place at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia.
The 50-year-old Tajiri currently wrestles for All Japan Pro Wrestling. He was most recently with WWE from 2016-2017. Tajiri was part of WWE’s Cruiserweight Classic tournament in 2016.
The Fightland tapings will also feature Nicole Savoy’s MLW debut. MLW announced last month that Shimmer promoter Dave Prazak has joined their office of wrestling operations and is spearheading the relaunch of the MLW women’s division.
The opening and semifinal rounds of the 2021 Opera Cup tournament are also set to take place at Fightland. The finals will be held when MLW returns to the 2300 Arena on Saturday, November 6.
