MLW’s first-ever 12-man Survival Tag Team match has been announced for Saturday’s Fightland taping in Philadelphia.
The big 12-man match will feature The Blue Meanie, Savio Vega, Warhorse, Zenshi, Richard Holliday and EJ Nduka vs. KC Navarro, Beastman, Kevin Ku, Gino Medina, Ikuro Kwon, and King Mo.
The 12-man bout will feature Survivor Series-style rules, and the match will end when one team is completely eliminated. Eliminations can happen via pinfall or submission.
MLW matchmaker Cesar Duran will be at Fightland and will have a “delightful reward” for the winning team. Duran noted in MLW’s announcement that “to win, these teams will have to find a way to cooperate and conquer!”
MLW previously announced Duran for Fightland and noted that “there will be consequences for a few people. However, Duran has some opportunities for those who have impressed him.”
MLW Fightland will be taped on Saturday, October 2 at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia. It will then air as a one-hour Vice TV special on Thursday, October 7 at 10pm ET, following the “Dark Side of the Ring” episode that airs that night, focusing on the controversial life and career of Ion Croitoru (aka Johnny K9, Bruiser Bedlam). The only matches that are set to air on Vice are the Title vs. Title main event, and the Fatal 4 Way for the MLW Middleweight Title.
