MLW debuts in Dallas with an MLW Fusion TV taping
DALLAS –  The Von Erichs are coming home and they’re going to war against CONTRA Unit in the ultimate battle: the War Chamber. 

MLW today announced the-first ever War Chamber match: Ross & Marshall Von Erich, Tom Lawlor & ??? vs. CONTRA Unit (Jacob Fatu, Josef Samael, Simon Gotch & ???) for MLW: War Chamber at the NYTEX Sports Centre in the greater Dallas/Ft. Worth area on September 7. The event will be an MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.

Tickets start at $10 at

The War Chamber match is confirmed to be the main event for MLW’s debut in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.

What is the WAR CHAMBER?
Locked in a carbon steel chamber with the perimeter of the top fortified with barbed wire, two teams of four will clash in combat that only the War Chamber can contain. 

The rules of the War Chamber:

  • A coin toss determines which team enters first.
  • 1-on-1 for 5:00 in stage 1 of the War Chamber.
  • The winner of coin toss comes out for 2-on-1.
  • Alternating teams have wrestlers enter every 2 minutes.
  • Once all combatants are in the War Chamber, victory is won by submission, surrender or pinfall.
The road to the War Chamber:
After the Von Erichs and Tom Lawlor issued a challenge on FUSION two weeks ago, CONTRA Unit accepted but added a caveat: instead of a 3-on-3 battle, it will be a 4-on-4 fight.  

Soon thereafter, CONTRA struck with a premeditated attack on the Von Erichs where a new CONTRA soldier emerged blinding Marshall Von Erich with a seemingly toxic substance. 

Marshall Von Erich was rushed to the hospital. Does this put the Von Erichs/Lawlor team down a man? And who is the fourth man yet to be named?

With many questions surrounding the newest member of CONTRA Unit, the global dealers in violence seem to have struck a disastrous blow just weeks out from the WAR CHAMBER. 

What will the Lawlor/Von Erichs team look like come September 7? Will Marshall Von Erich be cleared to return in time? Who is the newest member of CONTRA?
