MLW today announced that the reigning World Middleweight and Tag Team Champion Teddy Hart will compete in the 2019 Battle Riot® at MLW’s April 5th event at the Melrose Ballroom. Both the April 4th and April 5th events will be MLW FUSION TV tapings for beIN SPORTS.
Hart joins Pentagón Jr., MJF, Minoru Tanaka, Alex Hammerstone, super heavyweight Ace Romero and his cousin Davey Boy Smith Jr. as the participants announced thus far for the Battle Riot®.
A member of the reigning World Tag Team Champion Hart Foundation, alongside Davey Boy Smith Jr. and Brian Pillman, Teddy Hart has been reborn in Major League Wrestling over the last year. Crashing an MLW Fusion match in Orlando demanding one last shot, MLW CEO Court Bauer granted the black sheep of the Hart family his one last chance… and Hart has made good on that opportunity.
Harnessing his uncanny athleticism and innovation, Hart has blazed a trail throughout the league winning the World Middleweight Championship in December in a ladder match in Miami. Hart further cemented his comeback dethroning the Lucha Bros. on live national television with cousin Davey Boy Smith Jr. to claim the World Tag Team Titles in February at SuperFight.
The Hart family’s prodigal son Teddy Hart is one step closer to becoming the first-ever triple crown champion Major League Wrestling history… all he has to do is outlast 39 other wrestlers in the 2019 Battle Riot®.
