Major League Wrestling and beIN SPORTS will team up to televise the 40-wrestler Battle Riot III event on Saturday, July 24 at 10 pm ET (3 AM BST).

“BeIN Sports has been the exclusive linear destination for every Battle Riot, and we’re elated to continue the tradition with a stacked match and give it to the fans for free on cable and satellite,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “This event will serve as an important chapter as we look ahead to the next season this fall.”

Set at the sold-out full capacity 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, the event features King Muertes, National Openweight Champion Alex Hammerstone, Ross and Marshall Von Erich, Davey Richards, CONTRA Unit, former World Heavyweight Champion Tom Lawlor and Team Filthy, TJP, EJ Nduka, Caribbean Champion Richard Holliday, World Middleweight Champion Myron Reed and dozens of other world-class wrestlers.

A mash-up of a battle royal, royal rumble, 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 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!


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!
