MLW announced the following:
FIRST-EVER BATTLE RIOT TO MAIN EVENT MLW’S JULY 19TH NYC TV TAPING
NEW YORK – MLW’s July 19th card will literally be the biggest Major League Wrestling show ever. MLW today announced that it will present the first-ever Battle Riot® featuring 40 participants as the main event of its July 19th card and FUSION TV taping in New York City at the Melrose Ballroom in Queens, NY.
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!
