Danny Limelight signs with MLW, appears at Battle Riot tapings


Danny Limelight has signed with MLW as part of a new LAX stable led by Konnan.

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful reported this evening that Limelight had signed with the company. An angle that took place on tonight’s MLW Battle Riot tapings revealed that Limelight, under the name Rivera, was part of a new version of LAX, with Konnan managing Limelight, Slice Boogie (who has worked for the NWA recently), and Julius Smokes. Sapp has also confirmed that Boogie and Smokes have signed with MLW.

Fightful also reported that Limelight is permitted to appear on NJPW as part of the new deal. Limelight is a regular on New Japan Strong as part of the Team Filthy stable with Tom Lawlor and JR Kratos.

Prior to signing with MLW, Limelight had regularly been appearing on AEW Dark and Dark: Elevation, and even had a match on Dynamite in January where he teamed with The Varsity Blonds in a losing effort against Kenny Omega and The Good Brothers. His last appearance on AEW programming was on the June 5 edition of Dark, where he lost to Ethan Page.
