Bunkhouse Brawl announced for MLW Battle Riot tapings


A grudge match between The Von Erichs and Team Filthy is set for MLW's Battle Riot tapings.

MLW announced today that Marshall & Ross Von Erich will face Tom Lawlor & Kevin Ku in a Bunkhouse Brawl at the Battle Riot tapings. The tapings are being held at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Saturday, July 10.

The Von Erichs have been feuding with Lawlor since he turned against them in 2019. This January, Lawlor cost Marshall & Ross the MLW Tag Team titles. Lawlor was the special guest referee for the match where they lost the titles to LA Park & El Hijo de LA Park.

"A Bunkhouse Brawl is a stipulation bout with its roots in southern wrestling dating back decades. For years, Bunkhouse Brawls have been the final stage of vicious feuds. Wrestlers can use whatever they want as weapons are legal," MLW wrote.

Just make sure to bring your cowboy boots, a durable pair of jeans and a 6-pack of whoop ass as that’s what it will take to win this wild southern stipulation match."

The Battle Riot tapings will feature MLW's first live crowd since March 2020. Here's the updated card for the tapings:

  • 40-man Battle Riot match
  • IWA Caribbean Champion Richard Holliday defends against King Muertes in a Caribbean Rules (anything goes) match
  • Bunkhouse Brawl: Marshall & Ross Von Erich vs. Tom Lawlor & Kevin Ku
  • Davey Richards vs. TJP
