Major League Wrestling (MLW®) today announced the return of Taya Valkyrie for Kings of Colosseum ’22 on Friday, May 13 at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, featuring an MLW Fusion TV taping.

In yesterday’s FUSION, it was revealed the Queen of Lucha herself, Taya Valkyrie, is set to make her return to MLW in Philly on May 13th. Last competing in an MLW ring in September 2019, Taya looks to step into the new women’s featherweight division and march straight towards being crowned the inaugural World Featherweight Champion. Winning championships in Mexico, Japan and the US, Taya has distinguished herself as one of this generation’s best.

“Frankly, money is how I’d describe Taya,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “Taya is a world-class athlete and force of nature. Taya’s arrival will send shockwaves through the division. The road to winning the featherweight title just got a lot harder for her fellow competitors.”

One of the sport’s most iconic and beloved Luchadoras, the LA-based Canadian was a member of the Los Perros del Mal stable and won the AAA Reina de Reinas Championship 3 times. While reigning supreme in Mexico, Taya earned the nickname “La Wera Loca,” loosely translating to “The Crazy Blonde,” a title that fits her reputation.

MLW matchmaker Cesar Duran is actively in talks with several fighters about signing a bout sheet to face Taya. Who will get the privilege of fighting Lucha royalty?

Major League Wrestling also announced the signing of super heavyweight Juicy Finau to a multi-year deal. Prior to going major league, the 25-year-old Tongan from Ontario, California has been crushing the competition on the regional level over the past two years. Big Juicy will step foot in an MLW ring in Philadelphia on Friday, May 13.

Ushering in a new era of the super heavyweight, Juicy stands 6’5″ and tips the scales at nearly 500 pounds. The protege of Jacob Fatu, Finau has a one of a kind aerial arsenal that defies gravity and devastates all in his wake. Training at the Fale Dojo in New Zealand, Juicy tats himself as a “New Era Savage,” ready to take things to the next level.


Some of the athletes and talent signed to compete and appear include: Taya Valkyrie, Juicy Finau, Davey Richards, nZo, Microman with Mister Saint Laurent, World Tag Team Champions Hustle & Power (Calvin Tankman & EJ Nduka), Ross & Marshall Von Erich, National Openweight Champion Alex Kane (with Mr. Thomas), World Middleweight, Champion Myron Reed, Cesar Duran, Gangrel, King Muertes, TJP, Aramis, Arez, Matt Cross, ACH, Holidead KC Navarro, Savio Vega, plus MORE wrestlers to be announced soon.
