DRAGONGATE's Shun Skywalker Challenges For MLW World Middleweight Title in Atlanta


(ATLANTA, GA) – Major League Wrestling today announced DRAGONGATE's Shun Skywalker vs. Myron Reed for the MLW World Middleweight Championship at MLW: SUPER SERIES'22 presented by MLA from greater Atlanta on Sunday, September 18 at the Space Event Center at 6100 Live Oak Pkwy in Norcross, Georgia 30093.


The card is a FUSION TV taping, airing on beIN SPORTS nationwide on cable and dish and in over 60 countries around the world.

After Shun Skywalker called out the Young GOAT and mocked the reigning 3-time World Middleweight Champion, Reed took to social media this morning to formally accept the DRAGONGATE fighter's challenge. Watch: https://youtu.be/OzK-nX0ZUzg.


League officials moved quickly in drafting a bout sheet for the big interpromotional title fight with contracts being sent to the DRAGONGATE office in Kobe, Japan before noon eastern today.


Now, it is official: Skywalker will walk into Atlanta on September 18 at the Super Series and challenge Reed for the title!


Representing DRAGONGATE and the infamous Z-Brats, Shun Skywalker is a former Open The Dream Gate Champion. Heralded as arguably the best wrestler in Japan, if not in the entire sport itself, Skywalker is perhaps in a league of his own.


The cross-promotional summit will feature the participation of Major League Wrestling, the cutting-edge Kobe, Japan promotion DRAGONGATE and the grandest Mexican lucha libre promotion in the world: Lucha Libre AAA.


Will Reed vanquish one of world's best wrestlers in Skywalker? Or will the dark, maniacal masked Japanese wrestler bring gold back to DRAGONGATE? Find out in Atlanta at MLW Super Series'22.
