As announced in yesterday’s MLW Fusion episode, Major League Wrestling today confirmed Ace Romero 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.

Ace Romero will step into an MLW ring for the first time in 3 years as the super heavyweight’s entrance instantly sends shockwaves throughout the league. Using uncanny aerial attacks combined with explosive power, “Acey Baby” is a walking jumbo jet in the squared circle. Dominating in his first tour of duty, now this fan-favourite New England native looks to riot and win his ticket to a title shot against Hammerstone. Can anyone take Ace off his feet let alone try and get him over the top rope?


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.

Ross & Marshall Von Erich will face the Samoan SWAT Team as MLW presents the Battle Riot at New York City’s Melrose Ballroom on June 23, featuring an MLW Fusion TV taping.

In the 1980s, the Von Erichs versus Samoan SWAT Team was one of wrestling’s classic tag team feuds. Now two of wrestling’s most storied families clash once again as the next generation rumbles for supremacy and family pride. For the first time ever, Ross and Marshall Von Erich will clash with the new era SST and it goes down in New York City on June 23rd. With both teams in the mix for a crack at championship gold, this bout is a high-stakes clash of wrestling royalty generations in the making.

Will the Von Erich boys clinch victory with the Iron Claw or with the SST serve up a Samoan Splash and continue their climb up the rankings? Find out LIVE in New York City on June 23 at MLW Battle Riot IV.
