“The Samoan Werewolf” has found his next victim and it was Major League Wrestling (MLW) World Heavyweight Champion “Filthy” Tom Lawlor. On Saturday night’s live special, Kings of Colosseum, Jacob Fatu shocked the Chicago crowd by ending Lawlor’s World title reign at 155-days. The feud between Lawlor and CONTRA (Fatu, Josef Samael, and Simon Gotch) has been building for months, with Lawlor bringing in the Von Erichs (Ross & Marshall) to help even the sides. But when it came down to the two heavyweights colliding on Saturday, it was Jacob Fatu who emerged as the new MLW World Champion.
