Major League Wrestling today announced a new participant in the 40-wrestler Battle Riot as MLW returns to New York City’s Melrose Ballroom on June 23, featuring an MLW Fusion TV taping.
Grab your tickets at www.MLWNYC.com and on Eventbrite.
Marshall Von Erich promises to unleash a tornado when he enters the 40-wrestler Battle Riot extravaganza in the Big Apple this summer.
As one of the last standing competitors in last year’s Battle Riot, Marshall looks to go the distance and secure his shot at his first World Heavyweight Title shot and bring gold home to the Von Erich ranch.
The barefoot brawling “Son of Thunder” has accomplished much in MLW since his debut in 2019.
Winning the World Tag Team Championship in his first year along with his brother Ross, Marshall has predominately competed in tag team action. However, the Battle Riot could alter his next move in the league if he can outlast 39 other fighters and collect his golden ticket to what would be the biggest bout of his career.

WHAT IS THE BATTLE RIOT?

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.
Anything is possible 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!

Tickets start at $15 at MLWNYC.com and Eventbrite. Tickets will also be available day of show at the box office unless the event sales out in advance.
