For the first-time in MLW history the World Tag Team Titles will be contested in a 2/3 falls encounter as MLW makes its Dallas area debut.
MLW today announced The Hart Foundation (Teddy Hart & Davey Boy Smith Jr.) vs. The Dynasty in a 2/3 Fall World Tag Team Title Bout for MLW: War Chamber at the NYTEX Sports Centre in the greater Dallas/Ft. Worth area on September 7. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.

For weeks many have asked how the Dynasty could block a contractually obligated title rematch for the Hart Foundation. Simple: the Dynasty had the good fortune of Richard Holliday’s family of lawyers who added some fine print in the contract: a morals clause.
Citing Teddy Hart’s “extracurricular activities,” MJF and Holliday quickly invoked said morals clause. Thus seemingly ending the Hart Foundation’s pursuit of their newly won championship gold.
That was until Teddy Hart 1-upped them with a little leverage.
During a contentious conference call hosted by the league and featuring the Hart Foundation and the Dynasty (and their lawyers), Teddy reminded MJF about the time the Hart Foundation went joy-riding in MJF’s new car this past spring.
As documented on an episode of H2tv (WATCH), Teddy found something “scandalous” in MJF’s glove compartment…. something he would not want the world to know about. MJF quickly jumped in on the conference call to interrupt Teddy before anything could be revealed and caved on the rematch.
Scrambling to keep Teddy quiet, MJF quickly moved to sign the contract and end the league hosted arbitration hearing.
Sensing blood in the water, Davey Boy Smith Jr. demanded a stipulation to ensure the Dynasty’s meddling would not impact the title fight in the form of making the match a 2 out-of 3 fall bout.
MJF, livid but panicked and despite Holliday and lawyers, agreed to the stipulation in exchange for the Harts signing a nondisclosure agreement to never reveal whatever MJF had in the glove compartment of his car.
While a strange turn of events has led to this title match, Dallas will now see what could be the final encounter between the Hart Foundation and The Dynasty as championship gold weighs in the balance.
