What happens when Rickey Shane Page and AKIRA’s fists are taped, dipped into glue and coated in crushed shards of glass?

It’s the first-ever Taipei Deathmatch in MLW history!

Beaten down and crucified to the ropes, AKIRA was decimated as his signature mohawk was shaved off. Now, the “Death Fighter” readies to scar Rickey Shane Page with his taped fists wrapped in spiky glass shards.

Brutality is guaranteed in this gruesome match.

A notoriously dangerous stipulation, MLW has insisted both RSP and AKIRA sign waivers indemnifying the league from any legal consequences in the wake of the match, which promises to mutilate and forever maim the fighters… but it is a just stipulation for two bitter enemies.

Betrayed by The Calling, the exiled AKIRA readies for the war of his life.

The same is true for the emerging megalomaniac Rickey Shane Page, who tightens his grip as the emerging face of The Calling.

Now the two ready to wound the other until they can no longer fight.

Lock in your tickets now at and see it go down Saturday, January 6 in Philadelphia.

Kings of Colosseum is going to be headlined by Richard Holliday challenging Alex Kane for the MLW World Heavyweight Championship.
