FIRST 4 COMPETITORS REVEALED FOR MLW’S BATTLE RIOT SET FOR JULY 19TH IN NYC

NEW YORK – Major League Wrestling today announced the first four participants for the first-ever Battle Riot® featuring 40 wrestlers as the main event of its July 19th card and FUSION TV taping in New York City at the Melrose Ballroom in Queens, NY.

Tickets are available now at: https://mlwnyc.eventbrite.com.

The first four participants in the Battle Riot are:

John Hennigan, formally known as John Morrison.  Hennigan debuted in MLW in December, competing in a no disqualification tag team encounter with Shane “Swerve” Strickland. It was recently announced that the California competitor will be a cast member on the upcoming season of SURVIVOR on CBS. If Hennigan wins the Battle Riot, he could find himself challenging his friend – the reigning World Heavyweight Champion Strickland.

Davey Boy Smith Jr. will compete in MLW for the first time in 14 years. Debuting in MLW at the young age of 18, the 3rd generation Hart looks to return in dominant fashion.  With size, talent and power on his side, Smith could be a front-runner to win the first-ever Battle Riot.

“Taskmaster” Kevin Sullivan will make his MLW debut July 19th as he looks to cause carnage as only the legendary sinister mastermind can.  With more experience than anyone in the Battle Riot, will the sinister grappler outwit and outlast 39 other men? Find out July 19th in New York City!

ACH enters the Battle Riot on a hot streak including linking up with Rich Swann to become an instant force within the MLW tag team division as well as a sensational showing in Japan earlier this month.  Will ACH’s explosive power, speed and innovation triumph in the Battle Riot? Find out LIVE! 

What is the Battle Riot?

A mash-up of a battle royal, royal rumble and anything goes street fight, this super-sized main event will feature 40 wrestlers with new participants entering the ring every 60 seconds.

There will be surprises!

There will be legends!

There will be WTF entries!

And there will be no disqualifications!

Elimination is by pinfall, submission or by throwing an individual over the top rope. Hypothetically Tom Lawlor and Team Filthy can get a grappler down, put each arm in an arm bar, while 2 guys put him in ankle locks to tap him out!

Anything is possible July 19th in a Battle Riot! 

What does the winner Get? 

The winner gets a World Heavyweight Title Shot anywhere, anytime!  It could be that night; it could be in 6 months. The challenger has the key to unlock an instant title shot against whoever the champion is!

Participants will be announced starting next week.

“We’re going to stack the undercard.  You got to when you come to NYC.  This is going to be our biggest show ever in sheer numbers, matches and star power,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer.

Plus, it’s a TV taping for MLW FUSION on beIN Sports!

Tickets start at $20 at MLWTickets.com!

Be there for the first national televised pro-wrestling live event emanating from Queens, NYC in almost 18 years!

WWE News: SmackDown Live Event Results From Columbia, South Carolina (8/13/18)

Published

on

AJ Styles WWE Champion

While Monday Night RAW was on the air tonight, the Superstars of WWE’s SmackDown Live finished off their string of Live Events with a show this evening in Columbia, South Carolina.

The card remained the same as the rest of this past weekend’s Live Events as Samoa Joe challenged AJ Styles for the WWE Championship, Asuka got a shot at Carmella’s SmackDown Women’s Title, plus Rusev and Lana faced off with Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas and Zelina Vega. There were a couple of changes though, as Tye Dillinger was not in action after taking a nasty fall at last night’s show in Florence, South Carolina (check results here) that knocked him out cold in a match against Shelton Benjamin. Instead, Aiden English went one-on-one with Benjamin, on top of Shinsuke Nakamura defending the US Title against Jeff Hardy and Randy Orton. Below are the results:

  • The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods) defeated The Bar
  • Shelton Benjamin defeated Aiden English
  • Rusev & Lana defeated Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas & Zelina Vega
  • United States Title Triple Threat: Shinsuke Nakamura retained over Jeff Hardy & Randy Orton
  • SmackDown Women’s Title: Asuka defeated Carmella by DQ after interference
  • Asuka, Becky Lynch & Charlotte Flair defeated Carmella & The IIconics
  • SmackDown Tag Titles: The Bludgeon Brothers retained over Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson
  • WWE Title: AJ Styles retained over Samoa Joe

WWE News: Dean Ambrose Returns On Tonight’s RAW

Published

on

Dean Ambrose

After months of eagerly (and impatiently for some) waiting, WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose finally made his return on tonight’s edition of Monday Night RAW from Greensboro, North Carolina.

Throughout tonight’s show, General Manager kept attempting to contact Seth Rollins, who had been in China the past number of days promoting the upcoming shows in September and was having “travel issues”. Meanwhile Rollins’ SummerSlam opponent and Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler, along with Drew McIntyre, kept pestering Angle and wondering if ‘The KingSlayer’ would even show up for their scheduled SummerSlam contract signing. Since Seth was nowhere to be found, Ziggler decided to look over the contract to make sure Angle didn’t make any “mistakes”, noticing that the contract stated Seth could have someone in his corner.

While Dolph initially wasn’t pleased with this, Kurt would offer taking the clause out, but that would mean McIntyre couldn’t be in his corner at SummerSlam either. With ‘The Show Off’ thinking nothing of it, everybody showed up for the contract signing in the final segment of RAW, but still Rollins was absent. Dolph took the opportunity to berate ‘The Architect’ for not showing up, calling for their SummerSlam match to be officially made a forfeit. However, Seth would make his way out as Ziggler put his name on the dotted line, apologizing for being late and for the fans having to sit through Dolph’s “therapy session”.

Rollins would admit that he actually lied and had been around all night, but wanted to wait until Dolph signed the contract and although he was dealing with some travel issues, they were not his own. ‘The KingSlayer’ would state that he’s been sick of dealing with the two-on-one attacks, so he’s got some backup of his own, introducing Dean Ambrose.
