Actor Paul Walter Hauser was announced as an entrant in the MLW Battle Riot match that will be held on June 1 in Atlanta, Georgia at Center Stage. Hauser spoke with Dan Gelston of the Associated Press and spoke about his pro wrestling related dream. “The dream is to go win an Oscar for writing or acting in a film and the next night, I’m in front of 2,000 people in an independent show,” Hauser said. “That’s what I want to be doing. I want to be accessible to all people and show them the real me, which is, I am a fan just like the rest of you.”

Hauser also conceded that there are people in his life who are not happy about his involvement in pro wrestling. “My beautiful, patient, understanding wife and my agent are very much against it and wish that I would just buy some sidewalk chalk and go hopscotch in the driveway,” said Hauser. “The reality is, this is always something I was going to do.” Read more at APNews.com.

Powell’s POV: Hauser plays the role of Stingray in the fun Cobra Kai series on Netflix. His performance in Black Bird landed him an Emmy Award, and he dropped several pro wrestling references during his acceptance speech. He has worked four prior matches and has also appeared on AEW television. MLW has also announced that the Battle Riot VI event will stream live on YouTube. Other advertised entrants in the Royal Rumble style match include Matt Riddle, Místico, Sami Callihan, Ernest Miller, Timothy Thatcher, Davey Boy Smith Jr., Mads Krugger, Matt Justice, Jimmy Yang, Okumura, Mr. Thomas, Alkira, Josh Bishop, Bobby Fish, Brett Ryan Gosselin, and Jake Crist.
