(PHILADELPHIA) — Major League Wrestling today announced Billie Starkz vs. Kayla Kassidy at MLW Blood & Thunder on Saturday, January 7 at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia.
🎟 Tickets start at $15 at MLW2300.com and the 2300 Arena box office.
The card is a FUSION TV taping, airing on beIN SPORTS nationwide on cable and dish, streaming on Pro Wrestling TV, and in over 60 countries around the world.
Billie Starkz, one of the most talked about up-and-coming prospects in the sport, steps through the doors of the legendary 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia for the first-time ever on January 7th and makes her Major League Wrestling debut.
A standout star on the independent circuit, Starkz is already 4-year veteran of the squared circle, having debuted in her mid-teens. Fresh off of her first tour of Japan, Starkz’s momentum is at an all-time high as the Louisville native enters the women’s featherweight division.
Across the ring will be yet another MLW debut in the making as Kayla Kassidy steps foot for the first-time ever in an MLW ring January 7. The Paris, KY native has been climbing the Midwest wrestling circuit for the past 3 years, climbing the rankings by putting away several with her signature crossface.
Will Billie rock the house in Philly or will Kayla’s crossface cripple Billie’s meteoric rise in Major League Wrestling?
