An unpredictable match with 40 combatants, the RIOT presents the ultimate opportunity to the winner in the form of a golden ticket, enabling the wrestler a title shot on their terms.

With eliminations possible via pinfall, submission, or being tossed over the top rope, every moment in the Battle Riot is unpredictable as it gets. From shocking surprise entrants to legends looking to dance one last time with destiny, Riddle will be challenged by the unknown that is the biggest match in MLW.

Renowned for his ability to seamlessly transition between styles and adapt to any opponent, Riddle is confident he is prepared to take on all comers in the Battle Riot.

As the clock ticks down and new participants enter the fray every 60 seconds, the Battle Riot promises to be a rollercoaster of a thrill ride for fans and participants alike.
