Major League Wrestling today announced 1 Called Manders as a participant in the 40-wrestler Battle RIOT V when MLW returns to Philadelphia’s 2300 Arena on Saturday, April 8.
🎟 Grab tickets at MLW2300.com and the 2300 Arena box office. Tickets start at $15.
The ninth participant in Battle RIOT V is official and it’s the 1 Called Manders!
From the Cornfields of Iowa, the 1 Called Manders has been hitting highways and raising hell in towns coast-to-coast and along the way built quite a reputation.
Standing 6’1”, this rawboned “Boss of the Plains” is a versatile wrestler. Manders can brawl with the best of them and switch gears and do just about anything from grappling to tossing a literal kitchen sink at his opponents.
A member of the Second Gear Crew alongside Mance Warner and Matthew Justice, there may be no tougher trio in the sport.
A former Iowa Hawkeye, playing football at an elite level, Manders is one cowboy you don’t want to cross paths with.
A certified hoss, the 1 Called Manders is known for his heavy hitting style – and leaving his adversaries in a heap of wreckage. Tipping his hat as he cracks open a beer, reminding all there are two guarantees in this life: death and lariats.
40 wrestlers will riot in Philly as one combatant looks to outlast 39 others and earn a world title shot anytime, anywhere against Alex Hammerstone.
