Here is the official press release, via MLW:

2 new participants have been added to the Battle Riot on Saturday, July 10th in Philadelphia at the 2300 Arena.

Limited tickets are available at: www.MLW2300.com.

Arez, the master of “Strange Style” enters the Battle Riot under the Azteca Underground banner. With the advantage of most Battle Riot participants inexperienced with Arez’s unpredictable style, could this serve as a key advantage for the luchador? Securing a title shot would please Arez’s “El Jefe” Cesar Duran.

Kevin Ku, 1/2 of the top ranked tag team Violence is Forever, is a capable and vicious fighter. Discovered by Team Filthy while competing in the Inoki Amazon Jungle Fights, Ku is no stranger to dangerous fighting environments.

What happens if Azteca Underground or Team Filthy gets the numbers advantage in the RIOT?
