MLW War Games is now complete as all ten competitors have been announced.
Abyss was announced as the final piece of the War Games puzzle, joining Team Callihan against Team Hennigan.
MLW put out the following press release on their website:
For the first time in 15 years MLW will feature the 2-ring steel cage WAR GAMES match… and it will mark the MLW debuts of Tommy Dreamer and Abyss, who will compete for the first-time ever in a WAR GAMES match.
Unleashing terror throughout MLW, Callihan and his Death Machines have targeted underdog Kotto Brazil and the mighty 469 pound Barrington Hughes after taking out their childhood hero in a Boiler Room Brawl on MLW Fusion.
All summer long Kotto and Barrington have clashed with Callihan and his Death Machines on MLW FUSION. September 6th there will be no place for them to go as they step foot in the 2 ring steel cage WAR GAMES match.
Callihan is also attributed with ending Strickland ‘s 3-month World Heavyweight Title reign and has been battling the ex-champion all summer long.
Hennigan and Callihan collided in the final stages of the Battle Riot match and sources indicate there are undisclosed issues between the two that may be revealed on MLW Fusion in the weeks ahead. Tommy Dreamer was reportedly recruited by John Hennigan due to his penchant for the extreme and if there is one match that is extreme, it’s a WAR GAMES match.
Now the battlefield is set.
Abyss joins a murderers row for this year’s WAR GAMES as Sami Callihan captains the Ravagers featuring Jimmy Havoc, the Death Machines (Fulton and Leon Scott) and now Abyss. The team will go to battle against John Morrison, Tommy Dreamer, Barrington Hughes, Kotto Brazil and Shane Strickland.
Along the addition of Abyss to War Games, MLW announced ACH will take on Davey Boy Smith Jr. at War Games. ACH is looking for revenge after the New Era Hart Foundation (Smith Jr., Brian Pillman Jr., and Teddy Hart) handed ACH's tag partner Rich Swann a concussion in a tag bout.
Also added to the Sept. 6 War Games event is a mixed tag bout pitting Taya Valkyrie and Joey Ryan against MJF and Aria Blake.
War Games will be taped on Sept. 6 at Fort Lauderdale’s War Memorial Auditorium.
