CONTRA Unit’s Josef Samael re-ups with Major League Wrestling
Despite hostile negotiations, MLW comes to terms with vicious brawler

NEW YORK — Major League Wrestling (MLW®) today announced that the league has signed Josef Samael to a new multi-year agreement.

“Josef’s achievements in the sport are only eclipsed by his tyrannical nature,” said Court Bauer, MLW CEO and founder. “I would describe this deal as one done under protest but we have to find ways to accomplish business with CONTRA, so this deal was unfortunately necessary.”

“My masters have taught me to never interrupt my enemies when they are making a mistake,” said Josef Samael. “Now I am the master and the destruction caused by Contra is a source of extreme satisfaction. I don’t care if you respect me. As long as you fear me.”

Joining the league in February, Josef Samael is one of the core members of CONTRA Unit, an international organization cloaked in mystery but driven to gain power, disrupt leagues such as MLW and conquer all in their path by any means necessary.

Trained in various forms of combat, when Josef Samael steps into the ring for a fight, it is best described as pure chaos.

A very polished and successful entrepreneur out of the ring known for wearing nice suits and always smoking a cigar, Josef Samael is a ruthless and shadowy figure. 

While this mysterious combatant may look dress in the finest suits and smoke the best cigars, when in it comes to wrestling, he channels a barbaric and violent style to ensure victory. 

Josef Samael has conquered all in Japan, Puerto Rico, Australia and now he looks to defeat all in his path in Major League Wrestling.

A decorated 20-year veteran, Josef Samael has dominated every continent he’s competed on, including winning the NWA World’s Heavyweight Championship and the Zero-1 title in Japan.  Remembered for his international feuds with the likes of Terry Funk, this brawler is a wicked force.

Now this megalomaniac is on a conquest to disrupt and destroy all in the name of CONTRA unit.

Samael vows to unleash violence at MLW’s next event, the 2019 Opera Cup in New York City on December 5 at the Melrose Ballroom.
