Major League Wrestling today announced the signing of Calvin Tankman to a multi-year agreement. A division 1 recruited football player, Calvin Tankman is all about that super heavyweight hustle.

Standing 6’2” and weighing 355 pounds, Tankman is an instant threat to all in MLW, combining his size, heavy-hitting arsenal and uncanny agility to dominate the competition. “Calvin caught my eye for his athletic explosiveness and versatility as a competitor,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “There isn’t anyone like Calvin Tankman in the sport today and it is our privilege to share this extraordinary competitor with the world.”

A hybrid wrestler, Tankman fuses power wrestling, brawling and high flying into a super-sized package. A one-man rampage, Tankman is more than ready to enter Major League Wrestling.

“I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to show what I can do at the next level and MLW has given me that opportunity,” said Tankman. “I want the money, championships, and everything MLW has to offer and I don’t care who I have to go through to get it. It doesn’t matter if it’s Fatu, Hammerstone, or anyone else on the roster when I step in the ring, I’m going to prove that I’m one of the best young wrestlers in the world.”

Tankman put pen to paper on his MLW contract in May. Since then, the Indiana native has been readying for his debut.

Major League Wrestling’s (MLW) Underground TV series returns to airwaves this summer starting on Saturday, July 11. The episodes will air in their original unedited form in sequential episodic order and feature the touchstone moments that established Major League Wrestling. “Since MLW returned in 2017, fans have demanded the return of the Underground and it finally happens this summer,” said MLW CEO and Founder Court Bauer.

Originally premiering in April 2003, MLW Underground launched the league into national and international prominence. The series features MLW originals, legends and luminaries such as CM Punk, Terry Funk, Steve Corino and the Extreme Horsemen, Satoshi Kojima and dozens of the sport’s greatest wrestlers across multiple generations.

The first episode will feature the rise of Major League Wrestling, headlined by Vampiro vs. Christopher Daniels from the historic 2300 Arena, formerly known as the ECW Arena in South Philadelphia. Joey Styles serves as the play-by-play man calling the action each and every week.
