MLW has announced Jacob Fatu vs. Real 1 (nZo) in singles action for the upcoming Battle Riot IV match. They are billing this as a “first-time-ever” bout.
Fatu and Real 1 were previously announced for the 40-man Battle Riot IV main event as well.
However, MLW had 27 names confirmed for the Battle Riot IV match going into the weekend, but the listing included in today’s e-mail blast only has 25 names. The two names missing are Real 1 (nZo) and MicroMan. As we saw last week with names like Little Guido and Davey Richards, it’s possible that MLW will re-announce these entrants with their own individual announcements.
MLW is also teasing that more entrants will be announced, and that there will be surprise participants.
MLW Battle Riot IV will take place this Thursday, June 23 from the Melrose Ballroom in New York City. The event will also be a MLW Fusion TV taping. Below is the updated card:
