Former WWE Superstars Kenn Doane and Mike Mondo, formerly known as the Spirit Squad in WWE, are coming to Major League Wrestling.
MLW has announced Kenn and Mike will participate in an open-to-the-public-workout Thursday at the Melrose Ballroom in New York City. The talented team will showcase their “athleticism, grappling, stamina, speed, endurance and strength” for the lucky fans in attendance.
The spectacle will take place prior to MLW Never Say Never, which will be a national television taping for MLW FUSION.
If you’re in the NYC area, limited tickets for MLW Never Say Never are available at MLWTickets.com.
“I was surprised they insisted on this public workout as opposed to quickly getting in the mix in a very competitive tag team division,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “Mondo and Doane are a little different.”
A press release sent in to SEScoops implies the Squad might be there to do more than show off their athletic prowess. “Is the Spirt Squad all hype? Do they have the muscle to back the hustle?”
