MLW sent out of the following press release announcing Simon Gotch vs. Ace Romero at this weekend's Intimidation Games event.
CHICAGO – What happens when the immovable force meets the snitch? Fans will find this Saturday night in Chicago at MLW: Intimidation Games as the “Great Gotch” has demanded a rematch and Ace Romero has accepted!
MLW today announced Simon Gotch vs. Ace Romero for MLW: Intimidation Games at Cicero Stadium. The event will air live on beIN SPORTS on Saturday night March 2nd with a 7pm bell time.
Tickets start at $10 at MLWTickets.com.
Desperate men do desperate things. After being choked out by his former teammate, “Filthy” Tom Lawlor, Simon Gotch was determined to showcase his dominance in an MLW ring.
Increasing the cash prize to $20,000, Simon Gotch presented an open contract prize fight on a recent episode of MLW FUSION. While Gotch has defeated boxers, amateur wrestlers and even Gangrel, what he wasn’t ready for was 400 pounds of Acey Baby.
Super heavyweight Ace Romero stepped up and accepted the challenge… and boy was it a challenge for the scheming Simon Gotch A little over 3 minutes into the 5 minute challenge, Gotch was looking at the lights as the human jumbo jet rumbled to a 1-2-3 in the middle of the ring. Romero would share his $20,000 prize fight purse with the crowd as Gotch watched fans stuff his money into their pockets.
Bitter, desperate and arguably more dangerous than ever, Simon Gotch now looks to right the wrong and show his superb athletic ability.
Will the super heavyweight continue to send shockwaves through the league or will the backed into the corner Simon Gotch come out swinging?
