You can read the full announcement from Major League Wrestling below:


The sides have been chosen for MLW WAR GAMES® at Fort Lauderdale’s War Memorial Auditorium on September 6th!

Sami Callihan will captain his team of ravagers featuring Jimmy Havoc, the Death Machines and a mystery man versus John Hennigan, Shane Strickland, Barrington Hughes, Kotto Brazil and the debut of the “Innovator of Violence’ Tommy Dreamer.

For the first time in 15 years MLW will feature the 2-ring steel cage WAR GAMES® match… and it will mark the MLW debut of Tommy Dreamer, who will compete for the first-time ever in a WAR GAMES® match.

Unleashing terror throughout MLW, Callihan and his Death Machines have targeted underdog Kotto Brazil and the mighty 469 pound Barrington Hughes after taking out their childhood hero in a Boiler Room Brawl on MLW Fusion.

All summer long Kotto and Barrington have clashed with Callihan and his Death Machines on MLW FUSION. September 6th there will be no place for them to go as they step foot in the 2 ring steel cage WAR GAMES® match.

Callihan is also attributed with ending Strickland‘s 3-month World Heavyweight Title reign and has been battling the ex-champion all summer long.

Hennigan and Callihan collided in the final stages of the Battle Riot match and sources indicate there are undisclosed issues between the two that may be revealed on MLW Fusion in the weeks ahead.  Tommy Dreamer was reportedly recruited by John Hennigan due to his penchant for the extreme and if there is one match that is extreme, it’s a WAR GAMES® match.

Now the battlefield is set.  However, one mystery remains: who is the 5th participant for Callihan’s Ravagers?  We’ll just have to wait and see.  But don’t wait to get your tickets to see WAR GAMES® live!

The Super card will also feature a FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.

Ticket starts at just $10. You can purchase tickets now at starting at just $10.
