MLW Battle Riot IV announced for New York

The show will be held at the Melrose Ballroom in New York City on June 23.

MLW has revealed the date and location for their Battle Riot IV television taping. 

I was announced during tonight's MLW SuperFight that Battle Riot IV will be held on Thursday, June 23 at the Melrose Ballroom in New York City. Tickets for the taping will go on sale on Tuesday, March 22 at 10 a.m. Eastern time. 

Battle Riot is a signature MLW match type where 40 men compete in a battle royal with timed entrances. Eliminations can occur by pinfall, submission, or being thrown over the top rope. The winner of the bout is guaranteed an MLW World Heavyweight Championship match at a time and place of their choosing. 

2021's Battle Riot was held at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, where Alex Hammerstone won the Battle Riot match. 

Melrose Ballroom also hosted the 2019 and 2018 Battle Riot shows. LA Park won the Battle Riot bout in 2019, while "Filthy" Tom Lawlor won the match in 2018. 

The event was not held in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic.
