Jake Crist is making his MLW debut next weekend.

MLW announced Crist, a former TNA (IMPACT) Wrestling X Division and Tag Team Champion, will debut at the MLW Superfight TV tapings on February 3. Crist will challenge Rickey Shane Page for the MLW National Openweight Championship.

From MLW:

MLW today announced an MLW National Openweight Title Fight: Rickey Shane Page (champion) vs. Jake Crist at the beIN SPORTS TV taping portion of MLW SuperFight on February 3 at Philadelphia’s 2300 Arena.

? Grab tickets at MLW2300.com and the 2300 Arena box office. Tickets start at $15.

MLW will see an explosive debut as Jake Crist enters MLW looking to ignite a fire as the “Firestarter” holds his old friend Sami Callihan accountable.

Crist, who has been watching from afar as his oVe brethren Callihan emerged as the newest member of the Calling and savagely attacked AKIRA.  Sickened by the twisted turn Callihan has taken, Crist decided enough was enough.

Crist, who had been in talks with MLW for months, fast-tracked his debut, clearing all red tape and readying for a new war. A war against The Calling.

With Callihan already slated to face AKIRA, Crist wasted no time in making his demands. He insisted on facing another member of The Calling, Rickey Shane Page, and RSP accepted the challenge.

Upping the ante, MLW matchmakers have elevate the stakes even further by designating the bout as an MLW National Openweight Title Fight.

The bout will air as a part of the beIN SPORTS taping.

Having rebooted his career and transitioned from battles in the realms of deathmatches to death-defying aerial combat, Jake Crist now finds himself on the brink of unleashing hell on the “Human Slaughterhouse.”

However, as Crist prepares for this high-stakes encounter, he must remain vigilant, as The Calling lurks in the shadows, ready to strike at any moment.

Will Jake Crist succeed in sending a crushing blow to The Calling and putting Sami Callihan on notice? Will The Calling prove to be an insurmountable force? Only time will tell as MLW gears up for a showdown of epic proportions.

Lock in your tickets now at http://MLW2300.com and see it go down Saturday, February 3 in Philadelphia.

I came out swinging for the fences

After nearly two years away from the company, Jake Crist made a surprise return to IMPACT Wrestling as he was the tag team partner to Sami Callihan and Rich Swann. Together, the three took on The Design (Angels, Deaner & Kon) at IMPACT Under Siege on May 26.

Crist shared how his return happened during an appearance on Fightful’s In The Weeds.

“It was just presented to me, and I’m a worker, I’m not going to turn down any type of opportunity like that,” Crist said. “Being with Sami Callihan was the icing on the cake. I love Sami to death. That’s my best friend in the whole wide world. He’s amazing, a great individual, great talent, even better booker. The way he runs REVOLVER, he’s a genius, he’s our modern-day genius. I love Sami to death”

“To come back at IMPACT and wrestle with Swann and Sami, it was a dream come true,” Crist continued. “I was pinching myself. I’ve never been so nervous in my life to try to perform at a high level. I didn’t want to make Sami, Swann, or Sawyer [Madman Fulton] feel, ‘Ah, this guy shouldn’t be here.’ I had a little bit of a chip on my shoulder, had a little something to prove, not only to myself but to the wrestling world. I came out swinging for the fences and I feel a hit a dinger.”
