MLW sent Fightful.com the following, announcing several stars for their TV tapings:
Major League Wrestling today announced two new matches for next week’s Battle Riot event on July 19th in New York City. Jimmy Havoc vs. King Brody and Pierre Carl Ouellet (“PCO”) vs. “Notorious 187” Homicide will take place at the Melrose Ballroom in Queens, NY.
Known for his death matches, “England’s Most Dangerous Man” Jimmy Havoc will face a unique challenge in 6’5” former bounty hunter Brody King who welcomes chaos in his fights.
An MLW original, “the Notorious 187” Homicide will return to Major League Wrestling for the first time since 2004 as he scraps with Quebec’s Pierre Carl Ouellet in what should be a violent encounter. Will Brooklyn’s own Homicide derail PCO’s 2018 comeback? Or will the Quebecer make a big splash in his MLW debut? Find out LIVE July 19th! [Buy tickets]
Additionally, the above men will all compete in the 40-wrestler Battle Riot that same night along with the following participants just added: The Dirty Blondes, Vandal Ortagun and Simon Gotch.
Tickets are available now at: https://mlwnyc.eventbrite.com.
The winner of the 40-man Battle Riot will receive a World Title shot anytime, anywhere. Elimination is by pinfall, submission or by throwing an individual over the top rope in this no DQ mega match. [Buy tickets]
