Major League Wrestling today announced Killer Kross as a participant in the 40-wrestler Battle Riot as MLW returns to New York City’s Melrose Ballroom on June 23, featuring an MLW Fusion TV taping. Tick tock… could the countdown soon begin for Killer Kross challenging for the World Heavyweight Championship?

With Kross officially entering the Battle Riot, speculation has already begun about a future dream match between Hammerstone and Killer Kross. But first, the Sin City native must outlast 39 other combatants and win the Battle Riot. No easy task. Then again, this isn’t just any fighter. A harbinger of chaos, the 6’4″ fighter has been a threat wherever he’s battled. Returning to MLW 2 months ago, Killer Kross decimated his opponent and in the process put the entire league on notice.

Killer Kross is looking for a fight when he walks into the Melrose Ballroom in New York City. With his eyes set on grabbing his golden ticket to a title shot anytime, anywhere will anyone be able to stop his path of destruction in the Battle Riot? Find out LIVE in New York City on June 23 at MLW Battle Riot IV.


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

Battle Riot Participants:
Lince Dorado, Marshall Von Erich, Killer Kross, plus more to be announced in the days ahead.
