Major League Wrestling issued the following press release announcing that King Mo, Bu Ku Dao, and Alex Kane have all been added to the upcoming Battle Riot III matchup, which is set to take place at the July 10th taping from the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia. Details, including an updated match card for the event, can be found below.
King Mo, Bu Ku Dao & Alex Kane have been added to MLW’s Battle Riot on Saturday, July 10th in Philadelphia at the 2300 Arena.
This event is sold out.
King Mo: The multi-time MMA champion is no stranger to fights, be it in a cage, in the ring or on the street. The “Knockout King” can decimate men in tight environments, such as the Riot by using the clinch or trapping an arm or leg for a submission. Plus, there’s the king’s royal scepter. In a match where weapons are legal, King Mo has a lot at his disposal to unleash a majestic performance.
Bu Ku Dao: At just 5′, Bu Ku Dao is the smallest participant in the Battle Riot… but don’t underestimate the bite of this underdog. The Vietnamese sensation has toppled the likes of TJP in his rookie year. Dao is optimistic that his speed and evasive attacks will be the key to victory in this year’s Riot.
Alex Kane: “The Suplex Assassin” is the second American Top Team fight team member to join the Riot. Making his debut on a huge stage, the grappler has promised to take everyone to suplex island via a one way trip over the top rope. Will Kane conquer 39 other men and demonstrate his dominance by winning the Battle Riot?
