Powell’s POV: The MLW Title match changed when Low Ki captured the MLW Championship. His previously advertised match against Hennigan became the new title match, while Shane Strickland will face Sami Callihan without a title involved. We are looking for reports on tonight’s event.

MLW’s definition of 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.” The winner will get a title shot for the MLW Championship anytime, anywhere. This event will be taped for the MLW Fusion television series. For ticket information visit MLWTickets.com.
