MLW Adds Three More Names Including Re-Hired WWE Producer To Battle Riot III

Major League Wrestling adds three more names to the upcoming Battle Riot Battle Royal.

MLW recently added three more names to its 40-man Battle Riot Battle Royal and among those games has recently re-hired WWE producer Shawn Daivari who had been working with MLW during the timeframe where he was released from the company.

Jinder Mahal: "If It's Up To Me, I Finish Drew McIntyre In The Punjabi Prison At SummerSlam"

From MLW:

Davey Richards, Daivari and Kit Osbourne added to Battle Riot III
40 wrestlers will riot July 10 in Philadelphia

Davey Richards, Daivari & Kit "Rip Von Erich" Osbourne have been added to MLW's Battle Riot on Saturday, July 10th in Philadelphia at the 2300 Arena.

Tickets are unavailable for this event as it has sold out.

Davey Richards: What bigger impact could the "American Wolf" make in his first night in Major League Wrestling than outlasting 39 other wrestlers and securing a title shot? Training hard at his St. Louis fight camp, Richards is expected to be one to watch in the Battle Riot.

Daivari: The Iranian super soldier of CONTRA adds a numbers advantage to the international cabal. With several of CONTRA's crusaders confirmed for the Battle Riot, does this diminish Hammerstone's odds of going the distance and attaining a guaranteed title shot against Fatu?

Kit Osbourne: The self proclaimed son of Lance Von Erich has promised to eliminate his "cousins" Ross and Marshall and aid Tom Lawlor and his Team Filthy compatriots in going the distance and winning the Battle Riot.

Will one of these 3 men have his hand raised in triumph? Find out July 10th as MLW presents the Battle Riot!
