A perennial main eventer in Mexico, Sam Adonis was once described by a Mexican tabloid as “the most hated man in Mexico.” Now he’s putting his name in the mix as one of the 40 combatants in Battle RIOT V.
Standing 6’4″, the Pittsburgh showboat’s big mouth and unapologetic attitude have helped launch him into stardom.
Flagrantly breaking the rules in bouts, Adonis can back up his trash talking, unleashing 450 splashes, brainbusters and his signature Orange Blossom Thunder Driver.
Forever hated by Mexican fans for defeating Blue Panther and taking his hair in a high-profile Luchas de Apuestas, Adonis thrives on the shock and scandal of his fame and success.
Ruthless in and away from the ring, this abrasive heat seeker can switch-up styles from lucha to brawling to whatever it takes to get the win.
Now Mexico’s top rudo enters the Battle RIOT. Will he grab the golden ticket and secure a title shot anytime, anywhere against Hammerstone?
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.
Battle RIOT entrants:
Rickey Shane Page
1 Called Manders

WHAT IS THE BATTLE RIOT?
A mash-up of a battle royal, royal rumble and anything goes street fight, this super-sized main event will feature 40 wrestlers with new participants entering the ring every 60 seconds.
There will be surprises! There will be legends! There will be WTF entries… and there will be no disqualifications!
Elimination is by pinfall, submission or by throwing an individual over the top rope.
Anything is possible in a Battle Riot!
WHAT DOES THE WINNER GET?
The winner gets a World Heavyweight Title Shot anywhere, anytime! It could be that night; it could be in 6 months. The challenger has the key to unlock an instant title shot against whoever the champion is!
