Paul Walter Hauser is gearing up for some action, Major League Wrestling style. The announcement came from the league itself, revealing that the Emmy-winning actor will be stepping into the ring for Battle Riot VI on June 1st.

This addition marks a significant moment for both Hauser and Major League Wrestling. The 40-man Battle Riot match, set to be streamed live for free on YouTube, promises an electrifying showdown of wrestling prowess and unbridled mayhem. Hauser’s decision to join the fray signifies a bold move in his burgeoning pro wrestling career, aligning himself with some of the fiercest competitors in the business.

“I’m so excited to take part in Major League Wrestling’s 6th Annual Battle Riot,” expressed Hauser. “While some could misconstrue this to be an actor making a cameo in wrestling, or a fan checking off some bucket list or wish fulfillment – don’t get it twisted. I am entering to prove myself worthy of a spot in the world of wrestling, as well as a shot at Satoshi Kojima’s World Heavyweight Title.”

Court Bauer, the Founder and CEO of MLW, echoed the sentiment, recognizing Hauser’s dedication and determination to make his mark in the ring.


“Paul is building something special with a two-track career driven by his passion and an unrelenting quality that separates the pretenders from the contenders,” remarked Bauer. “I don’t think there is anything Paul wants more than to put MLW gold next to his Golden Globe and EMMY.”

For MLW, Battle Riot VI marks a milestone as well. This event will be the first-ever free live-streamed offering since the company began its live broadcasts a year prior on pay-per-view. This strategic move reflects a shift towards direct-to-consumer engagement, aligning with the evolving landscape of sports media consumption.

The lineup for Battle Riot VI is stacked with talent, including former UFC standout Matt Riddle, Mexico’s beloved Místico, and a host of other seasoned veterans and rising stars. With such a diverse array of competitors, the event promises to deliver on its reputation as one of the most anticipated wrestling spectacles of the year.

In essence, Paul Walter Hauser’s decision to step into the ring with Major League Wrestling embodies the spirit of determination and ambition, setting the stage for what is sure to be an unforgettable showdown at Battle Riot VI.
