Major League Wrestling has issued the following press release announcing that DRAGONGATE star and new MLW middleweight champion Shun Skywalker will compete in the Fightland ’22 event on October 30 at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia.

(PHILADELPHIA, PA) — Major League Wrestling today announced the Philly debut of DRAGONGATE’S Shun Skywalker at MLW FIGHTLAND ’22 on Sunday, October 30 at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia.
🎟 Tickets start at $15 on MLW2300.com and the 2300 Arena box office.
The map is a FUSION TV recording, broadcast on beIN SPORTS nationwide on cable and satellite and in over 60 countries around the world.
The newly crowned world middleweight champion will make his debut in Philadelphia on October 30 as DRAGONGATE’s Shun Skywalker enters the hallowed grounds of the 2300 Arena for the first time.
Shun Skywalker, who represents DRAGONGATE and the infamous Z-Brats, is no stranger to being a champion. Skywalker, a former Open The Dream Gate champion, is heralded as arguably the best wrestler in Japan, if not in the entire sport itself.
A cunning fighter, Skywalker was once a popular wrestler in DRAGONGATE, but he longed for more, perhaps embracing his inner dark heart.
Since then, the delusional fighter has wreaked havoc on his former teammates in the Masquerade faction… but what will he do in South Philadelphia on October 30?
MLW can confirm that Skywalker will defend the world middleweight title. But against whom?
MLW Matchmaker Cesar Duran meets with league officials to sign a “huge international title fight”. Details are expected soon.
See Shun Skywalker LIVE Sunday night, October 30 in Philadelphia at MLW FIGHTLAND ’22!
