MLW made a couple of announcements at last night’s television tapings in Queens, New York.
It was revealed that CMLL’s Rush will be making his MLW debut this fall. UPDATE: Rush will debut at MLW’s tapings in Chicago on November 8.
MLW has also added a second date to their lineup for WrestleMania week in New York City. MLW will be holding TV tapings at the Melrose Ballroom in Queens on Thursday, April 4 and Friday, April 5. The second night will be headlined by the second Battle Riot match in MLW history.
The first Battle Riot match took place this July and was won by Tom Lawlor. The stipulation is that it’s a 40-man, no disqualification match with wrestlers entering every 60 seconds. Eliminations occur via pinfall, submission, or being thrown over the top rope, and the winner receives a World title shot whenever they want it.
Tickets for the WrestleMania week tapings will go on sale at 10 a.m. Eastern time on October 10. MLW noted that both events have a start time of 7 p.m. Eastern and should conclude by 10:30 p.m. There will be packages available that include tickets for both nights.
