Major League Wrestling today announced 2023 Opera Cup: Stage 1 match: Davey Boy Smith Jr. vs. Calvin Tankman at MLW War Chamber’23 Thursday, April 6 at New York City's Melrose Ballroom.


🎟Buy tickets at www.MLWNYC.com and on Eventbrite.


The card is an MLW TV taping, airing nationwide in the US and in over 60 countries around the world.


MLW has converted the bout contract for the already announced Smith-Tankman bout into a Stage 1 Opera Cup tournament match.


“Once the Opera Cup was announced, DBS asked to considered for it and given he was the 2019 winner, converting this already big hoss fight into a stage 1 match was a no-brainer,” states MLW CEO Court Bauer.


DBS, a catch wrestler will square off with the heavy hands of Tankman, an MMA practitioner.


The first stage of the 2023 edition of the Opera Cup will also showcase the sweet science of grappling as two top level technicians make their MLW debut as Tony Deppen locks up with Brooklyn’s “Hot Sauce” Tracy Williams.


Who will advance to stage 2 of the Opera Cup and fight for the coveted 108 year old trophy?
