As announced last week in MLW Fusion, KC Navarro and the Samoan SWAT Team’s Lance Anoa’i and Juicy Finau will take part 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.

Fresh off of the biggest win of his career against nZo, the Miami native promises this will be a “blessed Riot” when he struts to the ring. Making his MLW debut in last year’s Riot, expect KC Navarro to use his speed, cutting edge arsenal and some high-risk tactics to outfight, outsmart and outlast his adversaries in the Riot. Will this be a blessed night for the electric Miami native?

Joining the stacked list of participants in this year’s Battle Riot is the Samoan SWAT Team’s Lance Anoai and Juicy Finau. With all 3 members of the SST in the Riot, could the SWAT Team wreck shop and win the Riot? If fate is on their side with their entry numbers, the Riot could get very interesting.


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 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.
