A notable name in MLW is done with the promotion – for now.
Sam Adonis announced via Twitter that he is now done with the company after signing with MLW back in October.
“The time has come for myself and MLW to part ways (for now). I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the MLW Crew and I wish them nothing but the best! Thank you!”
WrestleZone’s managing editor Bill Pritchard provided further clarity on Adonis’ exit, reporting that his contract was set to expire this October but the two parties mutually agreed to part ways early. As indicated by Adonis’ “for now” farewell, there is is no ill will between him and MLW.
A Look Back At Sam Adonis’ Strong Run With MLW
Adonis, an established star in Mexico, made his debut with MLW on Hallow’s eve in Philadelphia and swiftly became a prominent heel on the program, aligning himself with Cesar Duran and Azteca Underground.
During his nine-month run, Adonis garnered a great deal of heat with the live crowds behind the microphone and much like his brother Corey Graves, had some opportunities behind the commentary table. His last event was at MLW Never Say Never in Philadelphia where he was apart of a very bloody Country Whipping match with Mance Warner. He also closed out the night with a match against the ever-popular Microman.
A native of Pittsburgh, Adonis just made the move to Dallas, TX an area that should be much more convienent for work with AAA Lucha Libre in Mexico.
