🎟 Tickets start at $15 at MLW2300.com and the 2300 Arena box office.
The card is a FUSION TV taping, airing on beIN SPORTS nationwide on cable and dish and in over 60 countries around the world.
One of the sport’s most celebrated British dynasties will embark on a new era October 30th in Philadelphia as a new generation British Bulldogs, captained by Davey Boy Smith Jr. will make their collective debut on the hallowed grounds of the 2300 Arena at FIGHTLAND.
“MLW has showcased some of wrestling’s greatest families over the years,” said MLW Matchmaker Cesar Duran. “Now it is time for the Bulldogs to take the spotlight. What better place than FIGHTLAND in South Philly?”
The fight team, composed of the 2019 Opera Cup winner Davey Boy Smith Jr., and his cousins Thomas and Mark Billington, collectively as the Billington Bulldogs, have united to win gold and glory in MLW.
The Billington Family, which roots date back to being executioners in the late 1800s before venturing into combat sports, has been a fixture of the squared circle for over a century. From bare knuckle fights to boxing to the Dynamite Kid’s prolific pro wrestling career, the Billington Family is a storied brawling British clan.
The legendary tag team of cousins Davey Boy Smith Sr. and “Dynamite Kid” Tom Billington, the British Bulldogs, defined tag team wrestling in the 1980s, dominating every organization from Japan to North America to Europe. Decorated in gold, Smith and Billington were feared and respected for their tenacity and innovation.
Now the Smiths and Billingtons reunite as a new generation forge a new chapter in their family’s rich history.
Debuting in 2019, Mark and Thomas, the nephews of the Dynamite Kid, have recently been training for their MLW debut with their cousin Davey Boy and another distant relative in Canada: Bret “Hitman” Hart.
What will the trio have in store for fans and their adversaries at FIGHTLAND? Only time will tell, but they will be up against some stiff competition.
The trio will compete in six-man competition on October 30th against the Bomaye Fight Club’s Alex Kane, Myron Reed & Mr. Thomas. Recently, Alex Kane took to twitter, making it known he would relish the opportunity to square off with the returning Davey Boy Smith Jr.
Now, the stage is set for that showdown… with a twist as history watches on as a new era of Bulldogs look to pounce the competition as the world watches on.
Which team will reign supreme?
