Former EVOLVE Champion Timothy Thatcher is set to make his MLW debut next month.
MLW announced today that Thatcher will debut for the promotion at their television tapings in Queens, New York on Thursday, July 25. Thatcher’s opponent has yet to be revealed.
Thatcher is from California and wrestles for independent promotions around the world, including regularly appearing for wXw in Germany. He defeated Shawn Spears (formerly known as Tye Dillinger) for All Pro Wrestling in Daly City, California last weekend.
Thatcher held the EVOLVE Championship from July 2015 to February 2017.
MLW’s July 25 tapings are taking place at the Melrose Ballroom and are being called “Never Say Never ’19.” MLW has announced that Austin Aries will be in action at the show. He returned to MLW earlier this month, facing off with Adam Brooks in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
MLW also has tapings at Cicero Stadium in Cicero, Illinois on Saturday, July 6.
