Milwaukee will turn into a battlefield on June 1st as "Filthy" Tom Lawlor has challenged CONTRA Unit to a fight... and CONTRA has accepted! Now the question is: will it be a 2 on 2 encounter? 3 on 3? Only time will tell.

Major League Wrestling today announced "Filthy" Tom Lawlor & ??? vs. CONTRA Unit for MLW: Fury Road 2019 at the Waukesha County Expo Center on Saturday night June 1st.

Tickets start at just $10 at

CONTRA Unit has unleashed chaos since Jacob Fatu crashed down on "Filthy" Tom Lawlor from high atop of the steel cage 2 months ago in Chicago. Vowing to disrupt and destroy the league, the trio of outsiders in Fatu, Josef Samael and Simon Gotch have caused chaos since emerging in MLW.

Sudden, brutal and unleashing total destruction at any time, CONTRA Unit is an international organization cloaked in mystery but driven to gain power, disrupt leagues such as MLW and conquer all in their path by any means necessary. With whispers of connections to the dangerous and shadowy underworld, CONTRA has put the entire sport on edge.

Self proclaimed "global dealers in violence," CONTRA struck Lawlor again on April 5th in the closing minutes fo the live 2019 Battle Riot broadcast where they pummeled the World Heavyweight Champion during his post fight press conference. 

Now Lawlor looks to take to the battlefield at Fury Road.. and he's not coming alone. Will it be two on two? Three on three? Only time will tell but Lawlor isn't coming alone. 

More details on this mega collision in Milwaukee soon.
