MLW Battle Riot 3

Josef Samael, Ikuro Kwon & Simon Gotch Added To Battle Riot III At Saturday’s MLW Event

You can officially pencil in three more participants for the Battle Riot III match at this weekend’s Major League Wrestling event.

On Monday, MLW issued an announcement confirming CONTRA Unit members Josef Samael, Ikuro Kwon, and Simon Gotch for the Battle Riot III match at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on July 10.

Featured below is the press release that was sent out today.

CONTRA Unit’s Josef Samael, Ikuro Kwon, and Simon Gotch have been added to MLW’s Battle Riot on Saturday, July 10th in Philadelphia at the 2300 Arena.

Tickets are unavailable for this event as it has sold out.

The presence of CONTRA Unit in the Battle Riot have multiplied over the last few days. With the megalomaniac Josef Samael along with CONTRA’s Ikuro Kwon and Simon Gotch confirmed for the Riot, these crusaders remain steadfast in denying Alex Hammerstone his only path to a title shot against Jacob Fatu: winning the 40-wrestler extravaganza.

The international cabal vows to hijack the match and deny any and all from rising up and securing a title shot by winning the Battle Riot.

Will they be successful? Find out July 10th as MLW presents the Battle Riot!
