MLW issued the following press release on Tuesday regarding the January 22 event in Dallas, Texas.
Major League Wrestling (MLW®) today announced that reigning Ring of Honor Women’s World Champion Rok-C will be the first to walk through MLW’s open door policy as she makes her debut Friday January 21 at MLW Blood & Thunder at Gilley’s in Dallas, featuring an MLW Fusion TV taping.
Known as “The Prodigy,” the 5’1″ featherweight looks to make a statement in her home state of Texas when she steps foot in an MLW ring for the fist-time ever on January 21st.
Debuting in 2019, Rok-C’s meteoric rise in women’s wrestling is unparalleled, given her quick ascension to champion in ROH at just 20 years of age.
Trained under the tutelage of Hall of Famer Booker T and MLW’s Gino Medina, Rok-C may be small in size but she uses it to her advantage combining a brilliant array of technical finesse, speed and aerial excellence in her repertoire.
Recognizing an unprecedented free agency market, MLW recently announced it has open its doors to all who think they have what it takes to be major league and take on MLW’s greatest grapplers and champions.

Powell’s POV: A good booking for MLW. Rok-C was beyond impressive in the ROH tournament she won to become the company’s first ROH Women’s World Champion. She’s also a Texas native, which can only help given the event’s location.
