A new tag team match has been announced for the MLW Battle Riot IV event.
It was just announced that The Von Erichs will take on The Samoan SWAT Team.
MLW wrote, “In the 1980s, the Von Erichs versus Samoan SWAT Team was one of wrestling’s classic tag team feuds. Now two of wrestling’s most storied families clash once again as the next generation rumbles for supremacy and family pride. For the first-time ever Ross and Marshall Von Erich will clash with the new era SST and it goes down in New York City June 23rd. With both teams in the mix for a crack at championship gold, this bout is a high stakes clash of wrestling royalty generations in the making. Will the Von Erich boys clinch victory with the Iron Claw or with the SST serve up a Samoan Splash and continue their climb up the rankings?”
There’s no word yet on which SST members will face Ross Von Erich and Marshall Von Erich at Battle Riot IV, but the promotional graphic for the match has all three members listed – Jacob Fatu, Lance Anoa’i, and Juicy Finau.
Ross, Marshall, Fatu, Anoa’i, and Finau are all scheduled for the 40-man Battle Riot match that same night as well.
MLW Battle Riot IV will take place on 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:
