MLW has a new World Middleweight Champion.
On October 7, 2021, MLW’s Fightland aired as a special one-hour event on VICE TV. The show, however, was taped last weekend from the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, PA. In addition to the Opera Cup and Title vs. Title bout, one of the main attractions was a four-way match for Myron Reed’s MLW World Middleweight Championship. His challengers were Yoshihiro Tajiri, Arez, and Aramis.

After a hard-fought battle, in which all four men had the opportunity to shine, it was Tajiri who walked away with the victory and belt. The veteran ends Reed’s title reign after five months. He had won the title from Lio Rush on the May 5 episode of MLW Fusion: Kings Of Colosseum, kicking off his second stint as Middleweight Champion.
This was Tajiri’s debut match with MLW.
Since leaving WWE on a full-time basis in 2005, Tajiri has been active in Japan. He has returned for a handful of matches over the years including competing in the Cruiserweight Classic.
Tajiri is a former WCW United States Champion, ECW World Television Champion, ECW World Tag Team Champion, WWE Tag Team Championship, and WWE Cruiserweight Champion.
