Wow! Kingdom was fantastic. I loved the monsters ball! Your roster is stacked and I love it! I like the inclusion of AEW, gives me current IMPACT vibes. Cool ending to Kingdom with the Elite. You make everything look so realistic, the releases for example and the announcements! Neat match between Dunne and Bate's. People should use them more in pic feds. To give it even more of a realistic look, I think it would be cool if you some sort of a pre show. With a dark match maybe.
I'm liking the women's division so far! I'd like to see some more additions, perhaps the likes of Nikki Cross and the rest of the Riot Squad! Shame about Gulak being released, I wanted to see Catch Point in MCW. They would have suited MCW!
The yearbook is a sweet idea. You could do one about all the events and episodes of ACTION!
Class event! MCW is such a cool concept! I like the fact that it's a hybrid of picture/text! A big favourite of mine. I look forward to seeing what you in store for MCW soon!
With the expansion of the MasterClass Wrestling roster heading into season two, MCW officials have announced the addition of a new, review-based program on Saturday mornings, The Plug on MCW.
Each week, The Plug will recap the events of the previous Thursday night’s episode of MCW Action! along with additional matches featuring the athletes of MasterClass and a wide variety of freelance competitors. Additionally, each episode of The Plug will announce the main event for the following episode of Action!.
Fans can also expect announcements for upcoming major event cards, exclusive interviews with the stars of MCW, and much, much more. Additionally, MCW Event Center preceding iPPV events will now be special episodes of The Plug, beginning with The Plug on MCWxAEW Collision on Satuday, January 16.
The Plug on MCW will debut officially in its 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT time slot on Saturday, January 23.
- The first two matches have been announced for MCWxAEW Collision with a pair of championships on the line. AEW World Champion Kenny Omega will defend his championship against MCW star Mustafa Ali, while Gran Metalik will defend his Pride of the Class Championship against AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes.
- Unsurprisingly, the first two competitors announced for the World Class Tournament to determine the first-ever MCW Women's World Champion are the first two women signed to MCW, with "The Man" Becky Lynch taking the top seed while Ruby Riott slots into the second seed.
- MasterClass Wrestling joins the entire wrestling community in sending condolences to the family, friends, and fans of Jon Huber, known most recently as Mr. Brodie Lee in All-Elite Wrestling. MCW hoped to work with Huber as part of its relationship with AEW, and will dedicate the MCWxAEW Collision iPPV on January 16, 2021 to his memory.
- MCW and AEW officials have come together on agreement for two matches for the Collision event next month, as MCW's Finn Balor will seek revenge against former Alpha Club teammate, current member of the Elite and the AEW roster, Chris Jericho. Additionally, another rivalry that ignited at MCW Kingdom earlier this month will be settled as the Lucha Bros. Pentagon Jr. and Rey Fenix will represent AEW against the Sky Pirates, Kairi Sane and Io Shirai, of MCW's RISEN (accompanied by Shinsuke Nakamura).
- On the subject of Shirai and Sane, the pair have been named the #3 and #4 seeds, respectively, in the 2021 World Class Tournament to determine the first-ever MCW Women's World Championship.
Last Edit: Dec 28, 2020 13:40:47 GMT -5 by Joe/Smurf
MasterClass Wrestling news did not stop for the new year's celebrations last week.
- Three more competitors have been added to the line-up for the World Class Tournament to determine the first-ever MCW Women's World Champion. The fifth, sixth, and seventh seeds have gone to Tenille Dashwood, Mia Yim, and Tegan Nox with the final competitor to be announced this Thursday.
- Matches continue to be lined up for MCWxAEW Collision in just 11 days. AEW's The Young Bucks, members of The Elite, will take on Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly of Undisputed Era with Adam Cole and Roderick Strong in their corner.
Apologies for the delays in posting on here! I warned that might happen haha. But with my surgery upcoming next week, I have wanted to get ahead of the next few episodes of MCW. So, tonight's PPV and next week's Action/Plug are already shot, and about half of the following Action is in the can. I might be waiting on a shipment from Ringside before I finish next week *cough cough* AEW 3 *cough cough* so we'll see. But in the meantime, here is the last week of news! Hope you'll join us tonight! I'll try to post results here on WF tomorrow.
