Alexander Hammerstone has re-signed with MLW, cementing that he and his Dynasty bro, Richard Holliday will be major league for the next few years. The announcement for the National Openweight Champion became official yesterday as MLW posted the following on their website.
National Openweight Champion Alex Hammerstone has a new multi-year deal with Major League Wrestling that will see him stay major league for years to come.
“I don’t want to just make money and retire. I want to create a legacy. MLW has given me that platform,” said Alex Hammerstone. “Not only that, I still have a lot to do in this company. I still have a lot of goals. If you haven’t noticed someone has that World Heavyweight Championship and it ain’t me and that just don’t sit right.”
Hammerstone continued, “I have a platform here at MLW to explore everything I can to do and test myself against the best out there and that’s what is important to me. I want to thank everyone out there and hope you follow me on this journey.”
“This deal was one we needed to get done for the league and its future,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “We identified Alex as someone worthy of being tagged a franchise player. Alex is an exceptionally rare type of athlete and person. We are delighted he is calling MLW home for the foreseeable future.”
The Phoenix, Arizona powerhouse originally signed with the league in late 2018 and quickly climbed the rankings to become the inaugural MLW Openweight Champion on June 1, 2019. A founding member of the Dynasty, Hammerstone has remained undefeated in singles competition since his debut.
Hammerstone has dominated the MLW top 10, holding the #1 ranking for nearly a year having defended the championship against top ranked competitors from MLW, Japan, Canada and Mexico.
Hammerstone re-signing comes less than a week from MLW announcing that Holliday signed a new deal with the company as well. Hammer took to Twitter to give his detailed thoughts on the matter and MLW shared a video as well recapping the news, both of which are below.
