“Filthy” Tom Lawlor confirmed a previous report by Fightful that he is no longer under contract with MLW. He issued the following statement regarding his status and thanked the promotion:
“As of today, I am a free agent in the world of professional wrestling. Thank you to @mlw @courtbauer @MSL @beINSPORTSUSA for the time & effort they put in with me. But mostly I’d like to thank the MLW staff, wrestlers past & present, and fans for the 4 years of memories! #mlw.”
Lawlor had a four year run with MLW as he joined the promotion in 2017. He earned several achievements including a reign as the MLW World Champion in February 2019.
Lawlor is still working for NJPW as he is the NJPW Strong Openweight Champion.
Thank you for your tour of duty, Tom. You were a wonderful collaborator and member of the family. I look forward to your next chapter. See you on down the road, Filthy.
