Calvin Tankman & Savio Vega added to Battle Riot III
40 wrestlers will riot July 10 in Philadelphia
“Heavyweight Hustle” Calvin Tankman and the legendary Savio Vega have been added to MLW’s Battle Riot on Saturday, July 10th in Philadelphia at the 2300 Arena.
Limited tickets are available at: www.MLW2300.com.
Calvin Tankman: The super heavyweight bulldozed through the competition since his 2020 debut. The 355 pound behemoth is one of the biggest threats in this year’s Battle Riot. A double threat with both size and skill, the 39 other participants will be tasked with trying to move a nearly immovable object from the ring.
Savio Vega: One of the Caribbean’s most legendary brawlers, Vega has been readying for a return for months. The Battle Riot will mark the Pride of Puerto Rico’s return to MLW following the shocking events of the Aztec Jungle Fight earlier this year. What happens if the brawling boricua sees King Muertes across the ring in the Riot?
