World title street fight set for MLW TV tapings in New York City

An MLW World title match is set for WrestleMania week.

MLW announced today that Tom Lawlor will defend his World Heavyweight Championship against Jimmy Havoc in a New York City street fight at their "Rise of the Renegades" television tapings on Thursday, April 4. The tapings are taking place at the Melrose Ballroom in Queens, New York.

The story for the match is that Havoc was the last person to defeat Lawlor in MLW.

Lawlor won the MLW World title from Low Ki last month. His first defense of the championship was in a rematch against Low Ki, with Lawlor defeating him in a steel cage match at MLW's Intimidation Games live special this past weekend. Lawlor was then attacked by Contra (Simon Gotch, Jacob Fatu & Josef Samael) in a post-match angle.

Pentagon Jr. vs. LA Park is also set for the Rise of the Renegades tapings.

MLW has another show at the Melrose Ballroom on Friday, April 5, which will include a two-hour Battle Riot live special for beIN Sports. Pentagon, Davey Boy Smith Jr., and Minoru Tanaka have been announced for the Battle Riot match.
