Description: Mance Warner is one of the most unorthodox southern wrestlers in the sport today. Known for creating carnage in bars and in the ring, this Bucksnort brawler has a reputation for pummeling anyone that gets in his way. Anthology will journey back to his debut inside the historic 2300 Arena in Philadelphia and then plunge into a wild battle of two friends pitted against each other in a loser leaves MLW clash as ol Mancer and Sami Callihan fight all over the arena in Milwaukee.
The arena would literally never be the same after this vicious war. Witness Mance Warner’s bloody battles with Jimmy Havoc culminating in the last tangle in Texas: a no ropes barbed wire bout as Jimmy Havoc has nowhere to run and nowhere to hide as he rumbles with Tennessee’s toughest wrestler. Kick back, pop open a light beer and see Mance Warner raise hell and throw some lariats as only ol Mancer can on this week’s MLW Anthology.

No fusion, no remorse. MLW has been broken. It’s mighty wrestlers, broken. The gates to your arena’s, closed. And you didn’t see it coming. Nobody saw it coming. Contra has conquered, Major League Wrestling. And the black flag flies high over the league’s offices. I hope each and every one of you chokes, of the bits of fallen breadcrumbs. I want you to try and rise up, but remember what they say, the fire, rises. HAIL, CONTRA !!!
Rich Bocchini: Nearly 20 years, Major League Wrestling has showcased some of the greatest athletes, legends and classic title fights in our sport. This week, we look at someone who’s taken the league by storm. Leaving opponents and light beers in his wake, the hard hitting and hard living, Mance Warner. Warner had a baptism by fire when he entered MLW, immediately getting on the wrong side of LA Park. When Salina De Le Renta was granted the opportunity to be the executive producer of an episode of MLW Fusion, she put Mance and his unlikely ally, Sami Callihan, in a no-win situation. Right now, we take you back to a do-or-die moment for the man known for lariats and light beers, with his job on the line.
