Alex Hammerstone faces quite the battle in defending his MLW World Heavyweight Championship in New York City.
Coming up on June 23rd, Alex Hammerstone will put his World Heavyweight Championship on the line against Bandido at Major League Wrestling‘s Battle Riot event.
Bandido made his MLW debut on the June 2 episode of MLW Fusion, defeating Flamita in the main event of the show. Not only will Bandido get a title shot in his second match in the company, but he will be accompanied by Cesar Duran for the championship bout at Battle Riot.
MLW released the following statement on the championship matchup:
Major League Wrestling today announced a World Heavyweight Championship title fight: Alex Hammerstone (champion) vs. Bandido (with Cesar Duran in his corner) as MLW presents the Battle Riot at New York City’s Melrose Ballroom on June 23, featuring an MLW Fusion TV taping.
Limited tickets are available at www.MLWNYC.com and on Eventbrite.
“El Jefe” is sending in Mexico’s most wanted as Bandido sets his sights on the grandest score of his career: Hammerstone’s World Heavyweight Championship.
Undefeated since debuting in MLW in January, Bandido impressed MLW matchmaker and AZTECA proprietor Cesar Duran with his main event win this past week on FUSION over Flamita (watch).
Winning the ROH World Championship and collecting champions from Mexico to the United Kingdom, Bandido now has MLW’s most cherished gold on his mind. Collecting this prize wouldn’t just bring him power and money from El Jefe but make him the World Champion.
No stranger to Cesar’s schemes, Hammerstone has found himself quarreling with Cesar Duran from America to Mexico as their bitter animosity only grows over time. Vanquishing all luchadores Cesar has unleashed on the champ, “Your Boy Hammer” has continued to blaze a championship path throwing thunderbolts through Cesar’s best.
Now Cesar has upped the ante.
With this championship bout having the caveat of Cesar Duran lurking ringside, Hammerstone’s faces the unknown when he steps into the ring in New York City against a man awarded countless 5-star matches with arsenal of sensational moves including the devastating 24 plex.

Not only will Bandido challenge Hammerstone, but he’ll also be in the Battle Riot match during the same TV taping.
