Fightful Select reported the following:

MLW saw a lot of changes as a result of the pandemic, but it seems like some of them were for the better. Jacob Fatu vs. Alexander Hammerstone in a title vs. title match has been the plan for well over a year, with both men now closing in on two years as MLW World Heavyweight Champion and MLW National Openweight Champion, respectively. The pandemic hit and seemingly put a halt to those plans, but the company is still hoping to do that match whenever they feel comfortable having crowds in attendance.

Fightful learned that the Mads Krugger character was created as a way to pace things along without losing momentum of the two dominant champions, but Krugger was said to have exceeded expectations to the point he became a part of the grander plan.

Both Jacob Fatu and Alexander Hammerstone have held their championships well over 600 days, and have signed long-term deals with MLW.
