NEW YORK — Major League Wrestling (“MLW”) today announced “Filthy Tom Lawlor will address the “Filthy Screwjob” and ACH attack allegations this Wednesday, January 27 at 7pm ET on MLW’s flagship weekly series, FUSION, available on YouTube, Fubo Sports, DAZN, and the Roku Channel.
Is Filthy Island fighting financial woes? That’s the question on everyone’s mind.
Rumors are swirling that the 2020 Opera Cup winner has gone from hosting Filthy Island on the beaches of Honolulu… to well, more economic options on the island.
MLW.com has learned that Lawlor is facing big sponsors, such as Reebok, Vitamins & Minerals and New Law Offices all pulling out of backing the MMA turned pro wrestler’s tropical fighting extravaganza.
The backlash to last week’s “Filthy Screwjob” where Lawlor played a big part in Ross and Marshall Von Erich losing the World Tag Team Championship has caused outrage amongst fans and the sporting media alike.
Then, there are the allegations that Team Filthy attacked ACH outside his gym days prior to ACH challenging for the World Heavyweight Championship. Many believe Lawlor was bitter ACH got the crack at the champ… as well as ACH’s affiliation with the Von Erichs.
