MLW Adds No Holds Barred Match To Jan. 11 Event, View Current Card
Major League Wrestling has announced that Davey Boy Smith Jr. and Simon Gotch will be in a no holds barred match on their Jan. 11, 2020, event from North Richland Hills, Texas. The bout will be held in a ring with no ropes and it will be anything goes. The match must be won by either knockout or submission.
Here’s the official announcement:
CONTRA Unit’s violent attack on Davey Boy Smith’s cousin now calls for it return.
Major League Wrestling today announced a no ropes, no holds barred fight as Davey Boy Smith Jr. battles CONTRA Unit’s Simon Gotch at MLW: Zero Hour at the NYTEX Sports Centre in the greater Dallas/Ft. Worth area on Saturday January 11. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.
Davey Boy Smith Jr. doesn’t forgive or forget the brutal attack on Teddy Hart in early November by CONTRA Unit. He also doesn’t appreciate Simon Gotch running his mouth about the satisfaction in seeing the Hart Foundation “crumble.”
Smith does his talking in the ring, which is why he has challenged Simon Gotch to a no ropes no holds barred fight… and Gotch, a top level submission artist and grappler, has gleefully accepted.
Similar to the original NHB fights, the only way to win this NHB bout is by KO or submission. There are no gloves, no rounds, no ropes and no rules.
What happens when the king of catch wrestling clashes with CONTRA Unit’s ace grappler?
