PHILADELPHIA – MLW today announced Battle Riot III® will take place at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia on Saturday July 10.

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.

“You couldn’t ask for a bigger way to kick off the new season than a huge match with BIG stakes,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “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.”

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.

Powell’s POV: Alexander Hammerstone has to be considered the favorite if he enters the match. Hammerstone’s character has been pushing for an MLW Heavyweight Championship match, and the storyline is that Josef Samael controls who gets to challenge Jacob Fatu for the title with the exception of whomever earns a title shot via the Battle Riot match.
