6 new participants have been announced for the biggest match of the year in MLW!

1 Called Manders: Fresh off of fighting for the MLW World Heavyweight Championship, the Boss of the Plains looks to get back in the mix. Winning the Battle RIOT guarantees such.

AKIRA: No one thrives amidst the chaos like the “Death Fighter” does. Is the RIOT the perfect environment for AKIRA’s brand of anarchy? With momentum on his side, winning the RIOT would fast-track AKIRA’s ascension in MLW.

Mr. Thomas: a veteran of multiple Battle RIOTs, the Bomaye big man is primed to throw down and toss anyone standing in his way in securing a title shot anytime, anywhere. Could the Bomaye Fight Club go back-to-back with wins in the RIOT? That’s Mr. Thomas goal.

Brett Ryan Gosselin: Never underestimate a schemer with a game plan. BRG could taste sweet victory if he formulates a game plan to out wit and out play 39 others and weasel into being the last combatant standing at the end of the RIOT.

Jake Crist: A veteran with immense versatility, Crist is the perfect combination of experience and athleticism. Making his Battle RIOT debut, Crist will have to find his bearings fast if he wishes to last long in an unpredictable 40-wrestler match.

Josh Bishop: The powerhouse titan managed by Saint Laurent is made for a match where the toughest man could dominate with ease. The X-factor could be the right draw of numbers for Saint Laurent’s Titans. What happens if they all enter in succession? It could mean domination for Saint Laurent’s Superstars®.

A mash-up of a battle Royale and anything goes street fight, this super-sized main event will feature 40 wrestlers with new participants entering the ring every 60 seconds.

There will be surprises! There will be legends! There will be surprise entriants… 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!

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!

Get your tickets now at or Ticketmaster and see it go down Saturday, June 1 in Atlanta.
