MLW announce ‘Battle Riot III’ this July!

by Phil Wheat

MLW have today announced Battle Riot III will take place at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia on Saturday July 10th. 40 wrestlers will riot in the city of brotherly love on Saturday, July 10 as one man looks to outlast 39 others and earn a world title shot anytime, anywhere against Jacob Fatu. During last night’s MLW Open Draft digital series, Alicia Atout revealed the news that the July 10 card would in fact be the Battle Riot III.

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. Anything is possible 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 – you just don’t know. The challenger has the key to unlock an instant title shot against whoever the champion is!

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. Battle Riot participants and additional matches will be announced in the days ahead at MLW.com and you can buy tickets at MLW2300.com

Says MLW CEO Court Bauer:

You couldn’t ask for a bigger way to kick off the new season than a huge match with BIG stakes. Philly was set to get the Battle Riot last July before the pandemic hit, so I felt I had to make good on that promise and deliver it this July.

MLW kicks off its new season July 10 in Philadelphia, welcoming back fans to the historic 2300 Arena.
