MLW today announced a Hardcore Match for the World Tag Team Championship: Samoan SWAT Team (champion) vs. Second Gear Crew for 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.
No count outs! No disqualifications! NO RULES.
The Samoan SWAT Team’s reign as the World Tag Team Champions will be put to task in an extreme way as they defend their belts against the most dangerous highway men in the sport: The Second Gear Crew!
A hardcore match will showcase the best of both teams as the coveted gold hangs in the balance.
The Second Gear Crew’s Matthew Justice is known for his uncanny threshold for pain and fearless dives from high altitudes. Then there’s his tag partner, the lariat throwing “Boss of the Plains” 1 Called Manders. A combined force of hellraisers, expect the SGC to use anything not nailed down to win gold and hit that pay window.
The SST pose a unique challenge. Between the mountainous power and size of Big Juicy to the crisp execution of Lance Anoa’i, the SST are at the top of the division as champions for a reason.
