Major League Wrestling broke the news this week that their heavyweight champion Jacob Fatu has signed a multi-year contract with the company.
Fatu debuted as part of Contra Unit in Chicago and nearly caused a riot after many run-ins throughout the night. In a matter of months, Jacob ran through the roster and dethroned then champion Tom Lawler.
Major League Wrestling (MLW®) announced today they it has signed the reigning World Heavyweight Champion Jacob Fatu to a new long-term multi-year contract. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.
“This is where I wanted to be all along. CONTRA in MLW: this is my home,” Fatu said. The deal, which ties the “Samoan Smashing Machine” for the next several years to the league, goes into effect immediately.
“Fatu has been a revelation in the sport with a breakout year and has shown all the attributes we look for in a champion,” stated MLW CEO and founder Court Bauer.”We are excited to know that Fatu is someone we can build around, and we look forward to seeing him fight under the MLW banner for years to come.”
Fatu took MLW by storm earlier this year with high profile victories over some of the league’s top ranked wrestlers en route to dethroning “Filthy” Tom Lawlor on July 6 in Chicago.

Anyone who has watched Fatu knows that he is a future big named star and MLW is wise to lock him down for the foreseeable future.
