Here is your fight size update for Saturday, March 25, 2023.
- Josh Alexander is fresh off tricep surgery and is taking a break from social media to spend time with family
I sit here in my 18th year of pro-wrestling. The only time I've missed in my career was for my second neck surgery. In those 9months off I had time to reflect and plan to come back and make good on any and all mistakes I ever made. In 7yrs since coming back from that I've left it all in the ring every damn time. Wether 5, 50, 500 or 5000 in attendance you always got everything I had.
I love this sport, this business. Whatever you want to call it. Now out indefinitely with a torn tricep you can bet I'll make the best of this time off too. I will be back and when I am I'll be better than ever before.
I'm stepping away from socials to spend some much needed time with my family and to concentrate 100% of my energy on myself. I love you all. It's never goodbye. It's just see you later •
Thank you to all who reached out. For anyone who’s ever taken the time to support & bought a ticket to see me do what I love.— Josh Alexander (@Walking_Weapon) March 25, 2023
I appreciate all the support more than I can even put into words. It’s time for me to give back. Next time you see me I’ll be better than ever.

Juicy Finau enters Battle RIOT V
MLW returns to Philly April 8
(PHILADELPHIA) — Major League Wrestling today announced Calvin Tankman as a participant in the 40-wrestler Battle RIOT V when MLW returns to Philadelphia’s 2300 Arena on Saturday, April 8.
-- Grab tickets at MLW2300.com and the 2300 Arena box office. Tickets start at $15.
Joining the stacked list of participants in this year’s Battle Riot is the Samoan SWAT Team’s super heavyweight Juicy Finau.
The World Tag Team Championship SST have sent tidal waves through MLW, since uniting last year. The “SWAT” in Samoan SWAT Team stands for “Samoans with a Tongan”.
Big Juicy Finau, who is considered family by the Fatu/Anoa’i clan, is Tongan and the SWAT team celebrates their shared Polynesian culture both in and away from the ring.
Now 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!
See the SST LIVE in Philly on April 8 at MLW Battle Riot V!
