Major League Wrestling today announced Jacob Fatu as a participant in the 40-wrestler Battle Riot as MLW returns to New York City’s Melrose Ballroom on June 23, featuring an MLW Fusion TV taping.
🎟Limited tickets are available at www.MLWNYC.com and on Eventbrite.
The “High Chief of the Hood” says he is planning to wreck shop when his number is called and hits the ring to enter the Battle Riot.
The longest reigning World Heavyweight Champion in league history, Fatu has been engulfed in a war with CONTRA in recent months. Now, the “Samoan Werewolf” has eyes set on grabbing his shot at the title.
Recently uniting Lance Anoa’i and Juicy Finau to form a new era Samoan SWAT Team, the trio have sent shockwaves throughout the league.
An unpredictable fighter, Fatu is known for blending uncanny agility with a ferocious brawling style that makes his battle-tested endurance an imposing presence in the 40-wrestler extravaganza.
Will Fatu punch his ticket to another championship clash with Hammerstone?
