Many have speculated as to who the mystery fifth man would be for Sami Callihan’s Ravagers.  Finally it has been revealed as Abyss!

The 350 pound monster will make his Major League Wrestling debut September 6th at MLW WAR GAMES® at Fort Lauderdale’s War Memorial Auditorium!

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

Ticket start at just $10. You can purchase tickets now at

For the first time in 15 years MLW will feature the 2-ring steel cage WAR GAMES® match… and it will mark the MLW debuts of Tommy Dreamer and Abyss, 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.

Abyss joins a murderers row for this year’s WAR GAMES® as Sami Callihan captains the Ravagers featuring Jimmy Havoc, the Death Machines (Fulton and Leon Scott) and now Abyss.  The team will go to battle against John Morrison, Tommy Dreamer, Barrington Hughes, Kotto Brazil and Shane Strickland.

Which team will prevail?  Witness WAR GAMES® live!  Purchase tickets now at starting at just $10.
