“This is for our generation,” said Ricochet about the main event match, which was first reported by Jay Reddick of the Orlando-Sentinel on Monday.

“Ricochet laid down the gauntlet with his innovation but Strickland is actively redefining it. Now Ricochet and Strickland — two great friends, will wrestle in MLW to see they stand as top ranked elite wrestlers in the sport. This is a match that defines a generation,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer.

2017 has been a breakout year for Shane “Swerve” Strickland. With immense momentum, can he dethrone arguably the top free agent in the sport in “King” Ricochet? Will Ricochet continue his domination as an elite wrestler? Fans will find out on October 5th in Orlando.
